Dental implants are an ideal choice for the replacement of missing teeth. (Unless contraindicated). A number of implant systems are used at OHS Dental, such as the Nobel Biocare system.
Orthodontic Clear Aligners
Clear orthodontic aligners can straighten a dental patient’s teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. The aligners consist of a sequence of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth to straighten them. The patient must wear each tray for a specified amount of time—usually around 20 hours a day for two weeks–before the patient can progress to the next tray. In most situations, the aligners can straighten teeth in anywhere from six to 18 months.
UClear orthodontic aligners are suitable for patients with mild or moderate crowding, or minor spacing issues. They may not be appropriate for patients with severe crowding or spacing. While the aligners can correct a mild malocclusion, patients with severe underbites, overbites or crossbites may require more advanced orthodontic treatment.
Unlike traditional braces, the trays can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Because the trays are clear, patients can undergo this type of orthodontic treatment without the usual discomfort associated with regular braces.
Although treatment prices for aligners are normally set by the individual dentist or orthodontist, they can be more expensive than braces. If a patient fails to wear the trays properly, or loses them, additional costs may be incurred if new trays or impressions of a patient’s teeth are needed.

Cosmetic Dental Treatment
While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of the teeth, mouth and smile. In other words restorative, general and/or family dental practices address dental problems that require necessary treatment, whereas cosmetic dentistry provides elective – or desired – treatments or services.
Cosmetic treatments may also provide restorative benefits. For example, dental fillings are a common procedure used to treat decayed teeth. Previously, most dental fillings were composed primarily of gold, amalgam and other materials that left visible dark spots on the teeth.
Both these treatment modalities used either individually or in combination with each other bring about the true magic of a dazzling smile transformation. All defects including, stained teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, excessively small teeth, excessively large teeth, surface defects on teeth, gaps between teeth, overall unaesthetic smile etc can not only be corrected but also the smile can be enhanced to glamorous proportions using veneers and metal free crowns. Even regular smiles can be enhanced by altering the shade and the smile line to bring it in harmony with the rest of the face.

Tooth Colored Fillings
All cavity fillings are done using natural tooth coloured composite materials. OHS Dental is an exclusively silver – free practice and hence no silver fillings are suggested or performed.
Muscle Relaxants Botox
Botox relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. It’s effective for “expression lines”, such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes, and “turkey neck” – lines on the throat.

Crowns & Bridges
In the previous generation, the crowns used for the anterior teeth were mostly ceramic fused to metal crowns, with a metal base coated by ceramic. One of the major drawbacks of such crowns is the unsightly black metal line seen along the border of the crown along with a mild metallic tint to the overall crown. At OHS Dental we offer you the option of metal-free ceramic crowns. In such crowns, not only does the metal appearance and black lines disappear but also, in combination with the right tints and translucencies the crowns are made to look like real natural teeth and blend beautifully with the adjacent teeth. In fact, it becomes almost impossible to distinguish visually a well done metal free crown from a natural tooth.
In cases where implants are contraindicated, bridges (which are a number of units of crowns attached to one another) are used for the replacement of teeth. Artificial tints are deliberately incorporated in the ceramic to match the natural shade transitions of the adjacent teeth. As a result, all crowns and bridges (artificial teeth) at OHS Dental closely resemble natural teeth and do not give a ‘fake’ appearance.
Partial & Complete Dentures
A variety of options are present for the replacement of teeth through dentures such as basic complete dentures, implant supported complete dentures, cast partial dentures, Val Plast partial dentures, etc.
In addition to daily brushing and flossing, you can help protect your oral health by seeing a dentist regularly for checkups. It's recommended that most people get a dental checkup every six months, but your dentist may recommend more frequent or fewer visits, depending on your dental health history.
Dental Hygiene Services
Hygiene is a set of practices performed for the preservation of health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Hygiene refers to conditions and practices that help to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Are your wisdom teeth causing you pain and discomfort? Wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure that assists to eliminate the pain caused by problematic wisdom tooth development. If left in place, difficult wisdom teeth can cause severe pain, infections and serious damage to the surrounding jawbone and teeth.
Root Canal Treatment
A Root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need for dental implants. At the centre of your tooth is the pulp. The pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth during formation and remains in the centre of your tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums, or visible injury or swelling beside the tooth.
Gummy Smile Correction
Sometimes the natural contours of the gums are uneven and unsymmetrical producing an unaesthetic smile. Such gums are recontoured to make them look more pleasing and aesthetic.
There are several types of gum surgeries that your dentist might recommend if you’ve developed gum disease. The most common cause of gum disease is when excessive bacteria builds up in your mouth and creates excess plaque and your body is unable to fight the infection. Certain factors, however, including medications and chronic illnesses, can make someone more susceptible to gum disease even if he or she follows a thorough oral care routine.
