Your quest for best possible dental care with the latest globally accepted dental techniques ends at Smilekraft. Our consultation provides you with a thorough assessment of your dental health condition followed by a comprehensive dental treatment plan, which includes treatment required, cost incurred and the time duration for treatment. This enables you to choose from a variety of treatment options to suit your time and budget. SMILEKRAFT, through its multispecialty team, offers everything in the ambit of dentistry.
 Simple Extraction
Do you have a painful tooth? Or a tooth that is very mobile? In such conditions and some others we might need to remove your tooth if there are no other viable treatment alternatives. But, does that mean you should be worried? Absolutely not! Procedures for dental extractions at SMILEKRAFT are done with utmost care to ensure minimal intra-operative and post-operative pain/ discomfort. Conducted in the comfortable environs of our operatories with soft music providing the perfect soothing backdrop, our trained surgeons effortlessly perform the required procedure.
 Surgical Extraction
Is your wisdom tooth troubling you? Or a badly broken/ fractured tooth with roots still stuck in the bone? At SMILEKRAFT, our surgeons might advise a disimpaction or surgical extraction at times. Surgical extractions/ Open extraction are undertaken if it is not feasible to do a simple extraction or if the clinician considers it to be a more comfortable procedure for the patient. Such procedures may require placing cuts/ incision on the gums/gingiva. This may be followed by drilling/ guttering of bone and/ or splitting of the tooth to facilitate its removal.
Is there a growth in your mouth? Or is there an ulcer that does not heal? We might need to perform a biopsy for you. Biopsies are of various kinds and our surgeon at SMILEKRAFT will guide you about the procedure based on the size, nature and other features of the lesion. Once the surgical procedure is done, the specimen is sent to reputed laboratories for histopathological analysis and reporting. The analysis helps us determine the nature of the lesion and decide on any necessary future course of action.
 Managing Dental/ Facial Injuries
Did your face or teeth get hurt during an accident? Or did someone hit you? At SMILEKRAFT, we are fully trained and equipped to handle all sorts of dental and facial injuries. The treatment options vary from simple splinting to more complex procedures like bone plating depending on the nature, severity and location of the injury. In such cases, there generally are multiple ways of treating the problem. The line of management will be chosen after discussing both the short-term and long-term pros and cons of the concerned options with you.
 Incision and Drainage
Is there an infection that has caused an abscess accumulation of pus? This could be the cause of the pain or swelling you are experiencing. Our surgeons at SMILEKRAFT are adept at handling such maxillofacial space infections. We might require performing an incision and drainage to drain the pus(abscess). This entails putting a small cut either within the mouth or on the face to create a passage for the pus/ accumulated fluid to drain. This cut may heal by itself or might require us to put stitches.
A dental implant is like an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general and oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Under proper conditions and diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. At SMILEKRAFT, we provide tailor-made treatment options where implants can be used to replace a single tooth (with one implant and a crown), multiple teeth (with implant-supported bridges or multiple implants and crowns) or all teeth (with implant-supported bridges or implant-supported dentures).
Dental Implants can be categorized based on many different things – by size, by material used, by type of connection on top of the head of the implant and by the stages of the treatment, the last one being the most common. Based on the stages of the treatment, Dental Implants are divided into:

• Two Stage Dental Implants, and
• One Stage Dental Implants

 Two Stage Dental Implants
This is the traditional implant process with the first step being a surgery in which we install the implants which are left for three to six months so that they can heal and integrate with the jawbone. Placement in the lower jaw can take upto three months to heal while those in the upper jaw may need about six months. During the healing period, the patient is given a temporary prosthesis until it is time to put in the permanent crown. Placement of the attachment and subsequently permanent crown is accomplished in the second stage of this treatment procedure. Though this treatment-sequence maybe more time-consuming and expensive it still remains the most tried and tested implant treatment protocol in our experience at SMILEKRAFT.
 One Stage Dental Implants
In the single stage implant done at SMILEKRAFT, the second stage is altogether avoided and during a single surgery, our implantologists place the implant in the jaw bone is such a way that the top of the implant is higher than the surface of the bone, at the height of the soft tissue(gums). When the soft tissue is stitched at the end of the surgery, the dental implant’s head is left exposed. There is, therefore, no need for a second surgery as the implant is already exposed and takes its place naturally. The advantages of this procedure may include early osseointegration, no long wait for the bone to heal before placing the implant and a more natural and esthetic look early on.
 Immediate implants
The treatment procedure and steps for immediate loaded implants are the same as that for conventional implants, the main difference being that the temporary crown or bridge is loaded onto the implants after its surgical placement. An initial evaluation and x-ray is taken to determine implant site and bone condition. Then the implant site is prepared, the implant is placed and temporary crowns or bridges are cemented. Subsequently, permanent crown or bridge is placed. Immediate loaded implants do not apply to all cases and is dependent on the individual's bone quality and condition. Following placement of the implants in the jaw, the bone may be sore and the surrounding gums tender and swollen. Patients are, however, able to go about their normal daily activities a day after surgery avoiding any rigorous physical exercises or activities. Benefits of Immediate Loaded Implants done at SMILEKRAFT include immediately functioning teeth, good esthetic results and shorter treatment time with minimal pain.
 Implant-Supported Dentures
Do you have dentures that are not stable in the mouth? Or have you given up on dentures just because you have had them made a few times, but, they never seem to fit well? Implant supported dentures could solve such problems. Sometimes, the jaw bones have shrunk so much that conventional dentures won’t work well any more. In such cases, our implantologists at SMILEKRAFT may opt to place a few implants in the jaw and take their support to stabilize the dentures we subsequently fabricate. Such implant supported dentures are generally planned for the lower jaw. The dentures generally have slots that snap onto attachments on the implants. The commonly used implants for supporting dentures come either with ball or bar attachment. These dentures work like overdentures and offer excellent stability over conventional dentures.
 Maxillofacial Implants
Have you suffered from injuries to the facial region? Or have you had ablative surgeries to remove oral or maxillofacial tumors/ cancer? Is a part of your face badly disfigured? Or do you just feel you have a smallish chin or that your jaw lines or cheekbones just aren’t prominent or strong enough? Maxillofacial implants at SMILEKRAFT can be used effectively to solve most such problems. These implants can be used to define your facial features better or improve the apparent contours and angles of your face. Among the most common ones used are cheek implants, chin implants and jaw implants. Such implants can also be used to support a prosthesis for an artificial ear or eye in cases where such important facial structures are either congenitally missing or have had to be sacrificed either due to trauma or an aggressive pathological condition.
 Sinus Augmentation
The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. If you've lost bone in that area due to reasons such as periodontal disease or tooth loss, you may be left without enough bone to place implants.
The clinicians at SMILEKRAFT perform sinus augmentation which can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the sinus and allow for new bone to form. Depending on your individual needs, the bone usually will be allowed to develop for about four to 12 months before implants can be placed. After the implants are placed, an additional healing period is required. In some cases, the implant can be placed at the same time the sinus is augmented. Such augmentation can be carried out either by Direct Sinus Lift or Indirect Sinus Lift procedure.
Sinus augmentation has been shown to greatly increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.
 Root canal treatment (RCT)
Has your tooth been hurting? Heard about RCT but don’t know what it is? Root canal treatment (RCT) or endodontic treatment is a common procedure in dentistry. Root canal treatment is indicated if the pulp is irreversibly inflamed or in case of pulpal death caused by decay, tooth cracks or chips, or dental trauma. Traditionally RCTs are done in multiple appointments, but due to the advances in the field of endodontics it is possible to complete the same procedure in a single visit. We at SMILEKRAFT provide endodontic treatment with the latest instruments and equipments like magnification systems, endomotors and apex locators in a single appointment. If however, your case is not suitable to be undertaken in a single appointment, we might decide to opt for a multiple-appointment schedule. Following the Root Canal treatment, we generally build up the lost structure of the tooth with a core filling or place pin-like structures (called posts) within the canals before reinforcing them with the core filling. Following this, we usually recommend a cap or crown for the treated tooth.
 Cavity Fillings
Tooth decay is one of the most common problems affecting our teeth. This commonly results in the formation of a cavity on the tooth surface. This cavity is the result of dissolution of natural minerals of the teeth by the acids released by the bacteria which inhabit the tooth surface. Such cavities may cause sensitivity, pain or bad breath among other things and must be treated at the earliest. If they are allowed to progress, they may end up damaging the structural integrity of the tooth and affecting the pulp. At SMILEKRAFT, our trained clinicians use some of the latest diagnostic tools to diagnose such lesions very early on. Then they proceed to educate you about the presence of such lesions using gadgets like intra-oral cameras. Finally, we offer you a variety of different materials to choose from for the filling. The options include Silver amalgam fillings, cement restorations and light-cured composite fillings. The material of choice is chosen depending on the nature and location of the cavity and your personal preferences.
 Pediatric Dentistry
At Smilekraft, a child is always one of our most special patients. Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. They are specially trained for children’s unique dental health needs

Their professional education includes three years of specialized study after becoming a dentist, emphasizing child psychology, growth and development. Infants, preschoolers, children, and adolescents each need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.
To help a child stay totally healthy, the pediatric dentist often works with pediatricians, other physicians and other dental specialists. All children, whether healthy, chronically ill, disabled, or mentally challenged are served best through this team approach. This specialty is becoming even more important as a result of technical advances in medicine and dentistry and the increased populations of children with chronic diseases and congenital problems.
Pleasant visits to the dental office promote the establishment of trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. Our goal at SMILEKRAFT, along with our staff, is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teach them how to care for their teeth. From our special office designs, to our communication style, our main concern is what is best for your child.
Our pediatric dentists provide an ongoing assessment of your child’s dental needs and may suggest preventive procedures like additional fluoride, dietary changes, space maintainers or sealants. We also undertake all necessary therapeutic procedures like fillings, apexogenesis, apexification, stainless steel crowns, habit-breaking appliances etc. Our specialists are trained in management of uncooperative, physically handicapped and mentally challenged children and we are also equipped with options like sedation dentistry to cater to the dental needs of special children.
 Pit and Fissure Sealants
Cavities! Toothache! Don’t you wish they didn’t exist at all? Prevention is the soul of all treatment and care at SMILEKRAFT. With little care and simple timely procedures you can keep your mouth free from cavities or decay throughout your life. Pit and Fissure sealants are an ideal and important solution for preventing you from undergoing the dental pain, discomfort and complicated treatment procedures. The idea is to seal the grooves present on the Molar (chewing) teeth, which cannot be completely cleaned by tooth brushing. They are sealed with a biocompatible material that flows into these grooves and hardens, so that no bacteria/food substances can accumulate and hide in these areas and lead to teeth decay. They also make the chewing surfaces more easily cleansable.
 Topical fluoride application
Worried about your child having too many cavities in spite of brushing regularly? Eating too much of sticky food? Taking medications, which decrease saliva production in the mouth? Is somebody differently abled /handicapped / ill so that they cannot maintain proper cleanliness in the mouth for prolonged duration? All these factors, eventually lead to cavity formation or decay and toothache. Fluorides have been identified as the most efficient agents to prevent dental decay or cavities. They make the teeth more strong and resistant to withstand bacterial attacks, acidic foods, hot and cold temperatures, as well as stresses created by chewing hard foods. At SMILEKRAFT, we apply fluorides on to your tooth surfaces using the Gel and Varnish forms to ensure better reach, action and efficiency through long interaction with tooth surface. Periodic application of topical fluoride after professional cleaning of teeth goes a long way in maintaining your mouth cavity free.
 Tooth Rejuvenation
An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure! The Tooth Rejuvenation Programme (TRP) at SMILEKRAFT identifies at the earliest, the potential problems and diseases in the mouth. By correcting these risk factors, TRP helps you to add positivity, health and well being to your mouth so that it can withstand the day-to-day onslaught from bacteria, foods and stresses, which leach away the essential minerals from the protective enamel. TRP replenishes your saliva and teeth with the essential calcium and phosphate ions, restores adequate moistness and adds new vigor to the ageing teeth. If you want your teeth to last healthily for your lifetime and not age before you, entrust them to TRP.
 Orthodontic Treatment
Are you teeth unevenly placed? Are there too many gaps between the teeth or do you have forwardly placed teeth? Wouldn’t you love one of those picture-perfect smiles? Then what is holding you back? Visit the SMILEKRAFT Clinics to explore the various options by which we can correct your smile and improve your facevalue. This treatment, commonly known as wire and braces treatment, can be undertaken across a wide age-group and needn’t necessarily be done only for kids and teenagers. There are various kinds of braces also available and if you do not want those steely metallic braces, we can suggest you the tooth-colored ceramic brackets. This treatment may also be undertaken using lingual braces (braces placed on the inner surface of the teeth so that they are practically not visible). Orthodontic treatment may sometimes require us to remove some teeth (also called orthodontic extractions) to create place to be able to move the others into more desirable positions. Our orthodontists ensure a speedy treatment schedule and all we ask of you is that you religiously keep the appointments. During the course of the treatment we advise to take the necessary care to avoid debonding of braces/ brackets and keep your gums healthy.
 TMJ Pain Management
Does it pain when you open or close your mouth? Or do you find it difficult to open your mouth completely? Such problems and others like this could be the result of problems with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The TMJ is the only movable joint on the face. It facilitates movement of the lower jaw which helps you eat, talk etc. Like any other joint in the body, this goes through wear and tear and might become a cause for discomfort. This might be a result of problems like Myofacial Pain dysfunction Syndrome (MPDS), Internal Derangement or Arthritis of TMJ (Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis). Such conditions need to be dealt with a lot of care and expertise. At SMILEKRAFT, we endeavor to diagnose such problems correctly and an important key to it is listening patiently to all you have to say about your problem. Our treatment plans are focused on trying to manage the condition as conservatively as possible with an equal eye on early relief from discomfort as well as a favorable long-term prognosis. Surgical options may need to be considered in certain inevitable situations. However, at Smilekraft, we would prefer trying to manage such conditions as conservatively as possible. Some patients may report with Ankylosis of TMJ (total or near-total inability to move the lower jaw). These patients can be managed effectively with a combination of surgery and active physiotherapy. It is beneficial to initiate treatment as early as possible in such cases.
 Neural Disorders
Have you ever experienced sharp stabbing pain on your face? Does it happen on the same side each time? You could be suffering from neuralgia….a painful condition of the nerves. The nerve most commonly affected on the face is the Trigeminal Nerve and hence the term Trigeminal Neuralgia. This and other nerve-related disorders that commonly affect the orofacial region like Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia and Bells’ Palsy are complex problems that demand expert management. SMILEKRAFT conducts special Neuralgia Clinics and believes that the need of the hour in such cases is to arrive at the appropriate diagnosis and then follow it up with an evidence-based line of management. The initial line of management for neuralgias generally includes a combination of medications that might occasionally require periodic titration and alteration. Surgical alternatives for management can be provided for advanced and recurrent cases.
