Crowns and Bridges are know as Fixed Prosthesis. These are cemented onto the tooth and once done cannot be removed, hence know as fixed. A crown is a restoration which is used to restore a tooth which has a large filling or fractured. Crowns are also placed over a Root Canal Treated tooth.
A bridge is a restoration that is used to replace a missing tooth. Bridges and crowns can be made out of Gold, Porcelain fused to metal(tooth coloured) and all ceramics(tooth coloured).
Veneers allow the facial surface of the tooth to be recontoured. These can be used to cover stains and/or other discolourations.
With our portable operatory we prepare the teeth using the same high quality handpieces (drill), suction, and air-water spray as that found in a traditional fixed office. Impressions are taken and safely transported to a lab specializing in fabricating this type of restoration.
Neuro Physiotherapy can be a boon to a Stroke survivor. Neuro Physiotherapy helps stroke survivors relearn skills that are lost when a part of the brain is damaged. The team at Nightingales are extensively trained in the practice of wide range of treatment approaches including Bobath, Motor Relearning Program (MRP), Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES), EMG triggered stimulation (ETS) and Saebo products. Coupled with this, we have advanced technology and physiotherapists to apply skills and clinical knowledge in encouraging body movements, restoring balance and maximizing functional capability.
The multidisciplinary team at Nightingales facilitate improvement and fast recovery by
Our areas of clinical expertise include
To enable faster recovery, we are also equipped with a number of specialist devices to use in conjunction with our therapy.
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) FES is a technique to produce contractions in paralysed muscles by the application of small pulses of electrical stimulation to nerves that supply the paralysed muscle. FES is controlled in such a way so as to provide functional movement.
It has multiple applications like:
It is a combined neuromuscular electrical stimulation and EMG biofeedback device which actively involves the patient in the treatment process. EMG detects even smallest of activity in the paralyzed muscle and uses this to deliver stimulation to the targeted muscle resulting in actual movement.
Being independent to carry basic daily activities after stroke can be difficult for stroke survivors. Occupational therapy, which acts as a vital part of stroke rehabilitation, involves relearning daily activities and enabling the survivor to lead an independent life.
At nightingales, our Occupational Therapy practitioners and assistants provide compensatory strategies and rehabilitation techniques to help the stroke survivors involve in their daily activities and routine independently.
This is achieved by
Could your family member have a speech and language problem after suffering a stroke? And if so, what should you do?
Aphasia is an impairment of language, affecting the production or comprehension of speech and the ability to read or write after a stroke. Because language plays such a central role in our daily lives, aphasia can be very challenging. The diagnosis of aphasia does NOT imply a person has a mental illness or impairment in intelligence.
It is wise to intervene quickly. An evaluation by a certified speech-language pathologist can help to identify the problems and can guide you on initiating the treatment at the earliest.
The person with aphasia relearns and practices language skills and learns to use other ways to communicate. Family members often participate in the process, helping the person communicate.
In Nightingales, team members specialized in language disorders and speech problems offer a wide range of programs to treat and overcome issues for people who have:
Managing with stroke can be one of the most difficult situations for the stroke survivor as well as the family. The stroke rehabilitation therapy plays a vital role in early recovery, thereby helping the patient to become as independent as possible.
At Nightingales, multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team delivers measurable solutions and comprehensive approaches to every challenging problem and aid the patient to show remarkable recovery. The aim of the service is to maximize the quality of life and independence. We support to provide comprehensive neurorehabilitation services ranging from physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy to clinical care.
