This also allows you to keep a check on your dental health and gives back a fresh breath and clean feel in the mouth.
Fluoride treatment helps prevent cavities and tooth decay and keeps your teeth healthy and strong.

A Dental Implant is a titanium root that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that supports the crown or bridge needed to replace the missing teeth.

A root canal treatment repairs and saves a badly damaged or infected tooth. When a decay in tooth or an external trauma like fracture reaches the pulp tissue of the tooth, it requires a Root Canal Treatment. The decaying material in the tooth may cause a serious infection or a tooth abscess if left untreated, leading to pulp death, bone loss and loss of the tooth itself.
At Whiteroot, the root canal treatment involves removal of decay, disinfecting the root canals and filling them with an inert material like gutta-percha. Fabrication of a custom made crown for the root canal treated tooth is required to protect it from future bacterial invasion and to improve the strength of the tooth.
Dentures are removable prosthetics constructed to replace the missing teeth. They are supported by the soft and hard tissues of the mouth. Due to stress caused by chewing forces on the denture, it causes the underlying bone to resorb with the passage of time and hence fixed prosthesis like crowns or bridges supported by implants are considered a much better option then Dentures.
