Root canal therapydown arw
A Definitive and predictable means to save the teeth which might otherwise need removal
This is only required when the root canal has become infected by bacteria. When the inner layers of the tooth are exposed to outside, the tissues start to get contaminated and eventually infected. root canal can be exposed in various circumstances, most common being deep decay, large cavity or fractured tooth.
The purpose of the treatment is to remove the bacteria from inside the tooth and to disinfect the root canals. Once clean, the canals are filled and sealed to prevent re-infection. After the root canal treatment is complete , a crown is placed on that tooth to guard it against fracture.
Dr. Gupta tries to ensure the best results through the use of the latest equipments and highest quality materials.
DOES IT HURT?
All Root Canal treatments are carried out using the latest pain-free anesthetic techniques. During treatment, you can relax by watching a DVD of your choice or listening to your favorite music.

Dr. Gupta can create a treatment plan specific for your kid, review the brushing and flossing and discuss them. "It's not how much sugar you consume that causes decay, but how long the sugars stay in the mouth which matters"
Restorative dentistry for kids
Cosmetic fillings -White fillings require minimum tooth preparation and are still one of the widely used material to fill the cavities
Child root canal and stainless steel crowns -
A child root canal procedure is referred to as a "pulpotomy". The purpose of root canal treatment is to maintain the life of the affected tooth so that the tooth will not be lost early. Early loss of baby teeth may cause future problems with the eruption of permanent teeth. Therefore, it is best to avoid early loss of primary molars by properly treating the nerve of infected teeth with a "pulpotomy". Dental caries (cavities) and traumatic injury are the main reasons for a tooth to require pulp therapy. The "pulpotomy" root canal procedure removes the infected pulp tissue within the crown of the tooth. A medication is placed to calm the nerve of the tooth and prevent bacterial growth. The pulpotomy is followed with a final restoration such as a composite crown or stainless steel crown.
Dental sealants
Dental sealants play an important role in preventing tooth decay (cavities) in some locations of the teeth.
Placing sealants involves bonding a plastic resin coating into the grooves of a tooth (pits and fissures). The net result is a smoother surface....one that is less likely to harbor food and plaque, and easier to clean with a tooth brush.
Extractions down arw
Removal of the teeth from the mouth
Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. The most common reason for extraction is tooth damage due to breakage or decay. Other causes include severe gum disease, severe infection, fractured teeth, preparation of orthodontic treatment, impacted wisdom teeth.
Dr. Gupta takes utmost care to relax you and perform the procedure with little or no discomfort.
Will it hurt?
All extractions are carried out using the latest pain-free anesthetic techniques. During treatment, you can relax by watching a DVD of your choice or listening to your favorite music.
Preventive nightguards/ Sportguardsdown arw
Minimize teeth grinding and clenching
Many people suffer from Bruxism, which is the clenching together of both the upper and lower teeth. This condition occurs while you sleep, and can cause pressure on the muscles, tissues, and other surrounding structures of the jaw.
A large number of people who clench also tend to grind their teeth. Grinding is when you slide your teeth over each other in a back and forth, sideways movement.
Some of the symptoms include headaches, neck pain, jaw pain, ear pain, tense muscles, and excessive wear on the teeth which in turn affect TM joint.
Treatment
Dental night guards are the most commonly used treatment method for teeth clenching and grinding.
We custom make a protective covering for either your upper or lower teeth, which will prevent the wear and tear on your teeth while you sleep, in turn relaxing the muscles and the joint.
Sport guards can act as a cushion to protect the teeth from injury
When a child or an adult begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports, traumatic injuries to the teeth may occur. A properly fitted mouth guard is an important part of athletic gear.
