Fluoride therapy:

Fluoride therapy is a protective method and involves the repairing of an infected tooth and application of fluoride to prevent future decay and damage to the tooth.

Pit & Fissure Sealants:

Sealants is the safest and effective protection method of protecting the teeth from decay. These are a plastic coating applied on the biting surfaces of the back teeth and acts as a hard shield or barrier against bacteria attack and infection. Pit and fissure sealants are usually applied to cover the hollows and fissures of the molar and premolar teeth.


Dental restorations include filling in hollow gaps using composites, extraction of a damaged or decayed tooth and placement of crowns, filling the tooth gaps and application of sealants to prevent further damage and decay to the teeth.

Pulp Therapy:

Pulp therapy involves removing an infected pulp from the teeth and refilling and sealing the gap to prevent future bacterial attack and tooth decay. A tooth pulp comprises of nerves and roots of the teeth and any damage to the tooth can cause bacterial infection and decay of the tooth cavity. In such cases, the infected pulp is removed and sealed.

Space Maintainers:

Space maintainers are used in children who have prematurely lost baby teeth or when the permanent teeth are not erupting properly. Space maintainers hold space for the complete eruption of the permanent teeth without over-crowding.

Laser dental treatments:

At MSR dentistry, we rely on advanced laser devices for various dental treatments for children as well as adults. The main advantage of laser dental treatments is that they are minimal invasive, painless, no bleeding and with zero downtime. The laser dental treatments enable the children to recover faster from the treatment with no pain, swelling and discomfort during and after the procedures.
