All-ON-4 dental implants refer to an advanced dental surgery procedure that uses specifically designed dental implants to provide strong anchors for replacement teeth. In 90% of all cases, the ALL-ON-4 Dental Implant procedure is graftless. That's because dental implant techniques are used that eliminate the need for bone grafting or other surgical procedures. ALL-ON-4 Dental Implants are not only cost effective, they provide patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. ALL-ON-4 Dental Implants work for people who are missing the majority of their teeth.

What Is Dentophobia?
Dentophobia is defined as a fear of the dentist or dental procedures. The fear itself may be deeply rooted in a childhood memory triggered by the sights, sounds and smells of the dental office. In other situations, a patient may put off dental care because they have a strong gag reflex, hate needles or have super-sensitive teeth. We can help!
At AXIS Dental Group, we pride ourselves on our ability to empathize with people that experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness when visiting the Dentist. That's why we offer Sedation Dentistry, also called Sleep Dentistry.

Gum and Bone Disease: Periodontics in dentistry is focused on the supporting structures around the tooth, such as gums, bone and connective tissues as well as the illnesses and diseases associated with these areas of your mouth. At AXIS Dental Group, we have a Periodontist on staff that specializes in periodontics.
How Gum Disease Starts: The bacteria in our mouth along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colorless plaque on teeth. Brushing and flossing helps to get rid of plaque. Plaque that is not removed can harden and form tartar. Only a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar, using special instruments.

Invisalign takes a unique and extremely effective approach to straightening teeth. A custom-made set of aligners is created for you and only you. The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact plan the Dentist or Orthodontist has developed for you.

How Kids AND Adults Can Benefit From Orthodontics
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. The technical term for these problems is "malocclusion" - which means "bad bite." The practice of orthodontics requires professional skill in the design, application and control of corrective appliances (braces) to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and achieve facial balance.

We usually schedule an hour from start to finish ensuring we provide you with the quality time you need. Typically, it takes less than 30 minutes to extract all four wisdom teeth.

Dr. Papneja specializes in oral surgery so you don't need to see an oral surgeon elsewhere or go to a hospital for wisdom teeth removal. Wisdom teeth and complicated extractions are just two of the services we provide in our professional dental office in Brampton. Here are some of the other dental services we offer.
