The Dental Department is an integral part of MGM Hospitals. It deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions, diseases and disorders of the oral cavity, the maxillofacial region and its associated structures. Our center is committed to quality and excellent patient service and caters to a fairly large population seeking dental & oral surgical treatment. From common paediatric conditions to complex surgical treatments, our team of experts are equipped with years of experience to handle anything, with utmost care. Both inpatients & outpatients consultations are taken to the OPD or casualty department. While the work of the dentists is often surgical in nature, they treat many diseases of the oral cavity and face, chemotherapeutically (i.e. prescribed medicines). Besides providing the usual scope of dental services, the department also provides specialty treatment for Orthodontics & oral maxillofacial surgery.Backed by a prosthetic rehabilitation and care team who provide dental implants, the department of dentistry and maxilla-facial surgery has delivered millions of smiles over the years.
The department’s motto is to provide an ethically based, patient oriented, scientifically proven, compassion driven comprehensive oral care. We provide full day facilities in specialities like General Dentistry, Maxillo facial Surgery, Orthodontics, Root Canal treatment, Restoratine Dentistry, Crown & Bridge, Denture work, Periodontia, Exodontia & Oral Surgery and Cosmetic dentistry. Some of the common services provided by the Dental Department include Oral examination, teeth whitening, X-rays, Gum disease treatment, root canal treatment, paediatric dentistry, Crowns, fillings and bridges, implants, extractions, TMJ (Temporo-mandibular joint) treatment etc. We offer superior service with high safety and sterilization standards at affordable and reasonable prices.

|Q: How can I prevent cavities?
|You can certainly minimize the number of cavities you get. Always spend two to three minutes brushing your teeth. It takes that long to get rid of the bacteria which destroy tooth enamel. Do not brush too hard. It takes very little pressure to remove bacteria and plaque. Floss at least once a day. It is the only way to get bacteria from between your teeth.|
|Watch the sugar you eat. There is sugar in candy, fruits, crackers and chips. These are the foods that the bacteria in your mouth like best. Be mindful of foods like raisins and peanut butter that stick to your teeth. They can provide a constant supply for the bacteria eating into your teeth. Try to minimize the times during the day when sweet items are eaten and clean your teeth afterwards.
If you cannot brush after a meal, rinse your mouth with water—which can help to remove food from your teeth. Chewing sugarless gum after a meal can also help. Chewing stimulates the flow of saliva which acts as a natural plaque-fighting substance.
|Do not forget your regular dental visits. Good dental habits will go a long way toward a no-cavity visit.|
|Q: Why should I go to the dentist regularly? (Crisis treatment vs. preventive treatment)
|Many people do not see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they have a problem. We call this “crisis treatment” as opposed to “preventive treatment.” While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. The reason for this is that most dental problems do not have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages of the disease process. A simple example is tooth decay. We often hear, “Nothing hurts…I don’t have any problems.”|
|But tooth decay does not hurt! Until, that is, it gets close to the nerve of the tooth. By that time, root canal treatment followed by a post, buildup, and crown are often necessary, instead of the filling which could have been placed several years earlier when the cavity was just beginning to form. Your dentist can usually detect a cavity 3-4 years before it develops any symptoms. It is not uncommon to see a patient with a huge cavity and who has never felt a thing! This is why regular checkups are important – so why not schedule yours today?
