To assure achieving our mission of optimal, holistic dental care, Dr. Midha offers the following services, very much designed to provide patients with information appropriate to making their own informed decisions about treatment. These holistic services include:
Use of digital x-rays demonstrates the doctor's commitment to best-practice care and, more importantly, patient health. Unlike analog photographic x-ray machines, digital x-rays generate no hazardous waste, which can potentially injure patients or poison the environment. Moreover, digital equipment provides images far superior to analog, improving the quality of dental care.
A small video camera that can be positioned to assess the condition of the teeth and gums, by generating images of hard-to-reach dental problem areas.
Preventive Dental Education
A major component of dental care strategy is teaching patients about appropriate home-procedures and lifestyle-practices that can stop dental problems before they begin.
Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment
Caring for inflammation or infection of the gums involves scrupulous cleaning of dental-plaque for preventative care; if necessary root canal or surgical procedures will be performed to limit further damage.
Mercury and Metal-free Restorations
Mercury and metal fillings and dental restorations are packed tightly into the damaged tooth; they expand and contract over time, fracturing the tooth. Porcelain and composite-white fillings have none of these problem, They are non-toxic, longer-lasting and more natural-looking than metal or mercury.
Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry
Dr. Midha's skills with cosmetic dentistry can resolve such dental issues as gaps between teeth, staining or discoloration, crooked teeth, chips and cracks, receding gums and misalignment to your specifications at reasonable cost, some of which may be covered by your insurance.
Custom Smile Design and Makeover
Porcelain veneers, dental implants, and laser gum-recontouring can be combined with tooth-whitening or full-mouth reconstruction (if necessary) to enhance your smile. Computer-imaging can generate a realistic picture of your new smile before we begin.
Depending upon need and the sensitivity of your teeth, Dr. Midha can combine advanced laser whitening techniques with more standard resin-based whiteners for dazzling results! Tooth whitening works and remains among the most popular of all cosmetic procedures.
TMJ Diagnosis and Treatment
Temporomadibular joint disorders occur when the muscles, ligaments and joints controlling movements of head, jaw and face function incorrectly. Grinding or clenching the teeth can lead to spasms of the chewing muscles or other problems. Conservative treatment -- aspirin, soft food, an orthopedic bite-guard or soft vinyl splint - can provide relief and cure from the jaw pain and concurrent headaches. Surgery is suggested in extreme cases.
Full and Partial Dentures
Custom-made appliances designed to replace a patient's missing teeth, dentures restore the oral functions and appearance lost. Full dentures are needed when there are no teeth left in the mouth; partial dentures are used when only some teeth are missing. Fitting of dentures may be delayed several months if extraction of teeth is required. Full dentures stay in place by resting on the gum ridges, and by suction for upper dentures. Partial dentures remain stationary by metal clasps gripping adjoining teeth. Dr. Midha expertly provides these services when needed.
Full Mouth Reconstruction (FMR)
Reconstruction is a smart choice for patients who have teeth that are excessively worn down, otherwise damaged or missing entirely. Also known as 'full mouth restoration,' this process requires several cosmetic dentistry procedures, which combine to improve the patient's oral health and appearance. FMR can be the optimal dental treatment solution for anyone suffering from severely damaged teeth or thee symptoms of TMJ. It is a time-consuming process, frequently entailing a combination of such procedures as removal of damaged teeth and installation of dental crowns, implants and bridges, porcelain veneers, tooth-bonding and tooth-colored fillings. We can provide these services virtually pain-free with a plan to match your budget.
Replacing standard metal braces, invisalign orthodontics are, as the name suggests, close to invisible. Consisting of clear trays specifically tailored to precise configurations of the patient's, invisalign braces cannot be seen. Made of clear plastic that cannot be detected, invisalign braces can be worn day or night. Situated over teeth, their placement gently but firmly re-positions crooked teeth into a healthier, visually more pleasing arrangement. Straightened teeth lead to a more beautiful smile, at reasonable cost.
Dental implants replace severely damaged or missing teeth with hard-to-detect artificial teeth designed to function as if they were real. In practice, damaged tooth-roots are removed and replaced screw-like posts veneered to resemble the missing teeth. They offer a more permanent and often more satisfying alternative to either dentures or bridgework. Understand that implant dentistry is a time-consuming procedure that proceeds in stages, but the results are well worth it.
Unfortunately, despite the dentist's skill, some teeth cannot be saved. In these cases, tooth extraction, wherein a severely infected or impacted tooth is removed from its socket in the bone for health, positional or structural reasons is imperative. Our expertise and care assures a relatively pain-free experience for the afflicted.
Dr. Midha offers the finest of dental care and service for the entire family, covering the entire range of dental practice. Healthy and strong relationships with customers are as important to the doctor as beautiful teeth.
