Popular Dental Procedures

 

 

Professional Tooth Cleaning

 

Problem: You have great teeth, but they are now stained yellow and brown (from your tea/coffee intake or from smoking, tobacco chewing and the like).

 

Solution: The easiest and quickest solution is to get a scaling and polishing done. Scaling is the professional cleaning of your teeth by the dentist with special equipment, and polishing to give back your pearls the lost sparkle. However, this procedure will only remove the stains and the tartar from your teeth. It will not change the natural colour/shade of your teeth.

 

Laminates

 

Problem: Misaligned front teeth – some could even be broken or chipped off. Or the front teeth could be discoloured.

 

Solution: These problems can be corrected with the use of laminates or veneers. These are porcelain dental restorations used in cosmetic or aesthetic dentistry to repair or replace the front side of the tooth to make it visually more appealing. Laminates are a safe, aesthetic and quick option to correct unattractive front teeth.

 

Crowns and Bridges

 

Problem: Missing teeth. These are not confined to old people – even teenagers, young adults and the middle aged can have some teeth missing due to accidents, dental caries, genetic disorders etc. Missing teeth can bring about unwanted changes to one's facial appearance, denting (excuse the pun) one's self-esteem and confidence.

 

Solution: Crowns can be used to replace a single missing tooth. Metalceramic crowns and all-ceramic crowns are popular choices, as they offer good strength and excellent aesthetics. This treatment involves reshaping of the tooth for accurate fitting and proper function.

Bridges are used in cases of multiple missing teeth. The teeth adjacent to the missing teeth are reshaped for gaining support and adaptability for the bridge. The all-ceramic ones look the best.

 

 

Implants

 

Problem: You have missing teeth, and want the new teeth to look, feel and function just like natural ones.

 

Solution: Dental implants are a vast improvement over other conventional dentures, being more stable, user friendly and longer lasting. This is a surgical procedure involving the placement of a titanium screw in the patient's jaw. Because of their integration in the jaw, they prevent bone loss and gum recession. Though immediate implants can be done in a few cases, others would require two to three months' time for the implant to get integrated and adapted by the bone. It is important to get this treatment done by skilled and experienced dentists. This might not exactly be a Diwali option, but since the festival season has started, you could consider this also.

Safety Tips for Diwali !!!

 

Diwali, the beautiful festival of lights, happiness and celebration is just around the corner. Celebrating the festivities with your family and friends is something everyone enjoys. However we also see and hear a lot of accidents related to Diwali crackers. Most of these unfortunate accidents can be prevented by following some basic tips.

 

TOPSLINE being your safety partner share some preventive measures so that you can celebrate a safe and joyful Diwali.

 

Clothes:

•     Bursting firecrackers is something everyone including children and adults enjoy. To avoid any accident with fire it is recommended that you wear cotton clothes and stay away from synthetic material.

Quality of Crackers:

•     You must purchase firecrackers from legal manufacturers and ensure that you go through the instructions before actually bursting them. Good quality firecrackers reduce the risk of a dangerous mishap.

Instructing Children:

•     Before taking your children out in the open to burst crackers, it is highly important for you to instruct them about the usage of firecrackers and educate them about the appropriate ways to do so. Supervising them while they are having a fun time with crackers is of utmost importance.

Fire Extinguisher:

•     Having a fire extinguisher in close proximity to the area where you are bursting firecrackers is very essential. Even a bucket of water or sand would be useful to tackle an unexpected fire.

Closed Areas:

•     It is critical to note that you must never burst firecrackers in a closed area. Doing so can lead to a massive hazard in case of fire breaking.

First Aid Kit:

•     A first aid kit should be a handy while you or your kids are enjoying the fireworks. In case there is a minor injury, it can be treated immediately at home.

Discarding Used Fireworks:

•     Dispose of the used firecrackers immediately and carefully. You can either put it in a bucket full of water or put sand on them in order to put out its heat.

Candles and Diyas:

•     Diwali is all about beautiful candles and diyas spreading their light and happiness. However, keeping lit candles and diyas at home can cost you dearly at times. You must make sure that there aren’t any curtains or inflammable materials close to them.

Pet Safety:

•     Pets are a part of the family for animal lovers. But Diwali can be an agonizing time for the animals due to the extreme noise all around. Try to sensitize your pet to the noises by playing similar sounds beforehand. Also, try not to leave your pet alone and do keep them away from firecrackers.

Sensitivity:

•     It is important to celebrate festivals with utmost sensitivity and care. Using firecrackers that do not create a lot of noise can be the first step towards being sensitive to your fellow neighbors and friends. Too much noise pollution can be harmful for everyone, especially senior citizens.

 

TOPSLINE would always stand to support and protect you and we wish you a safe festive season.


Spread Happiness this Diwali and Celebrate this Beautiful Festival Joyously with your Loved Ones and keep them and Yourself Safe!!!
