Endodontic procedures under operating microscope

The Endodontic procedures are usually blind fractions and fractions of millimetre may decide the outcome of treatment.                                                                                                                                                                                             

Smile designing & esthetic corrections

A confident smile is a key for effective communication and personality development.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Digital endodontics

Digital technologies improve diagnostic acumen and treatment outcomes. Use of digital x- rays and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) aids in better diagnosis and management of endodontic problems.                                               

Complex direct & indirect restorations

Most people desire restorations for the cavitated teeth. Direct restorations are performed using silver amalgam, composite resins and newer biomimetic and smart materials.
