Check-ups with diagnosis and treatment planning
Digital Dental X-rays
We all would like our teeth to last a lifetime. To achieve this it is important to come for regular check-ups every 6 months.
Scale and Polish
Gum disease is very common. Symptoms include bad breath, bleeding, swollen, red and painful gums. With treatment it can be controlled but if left untreated it will worsen and can eventually lead to tooth loss. Dental sealants are used in children to protect the posterior teeth against tooth decay.
(white metal-free fillings)
A dental filling is a restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure that resulted from decay or external trauma.
Children who do not cooperate well in the dental chair have the option of having the treatment done under Conscious sedation or General Anaesthesia.
Implant supported crowns
A Crown is a type of fixed dental restoration which completely caps a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. It can be made with different materials
like Ceramics, Porcelain or Gold, and it is mostly used to improve the strength or appearance of the teeth. A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment refers to the removal of the nerve and blood vessels (pulp tissue) of the tooth. This treatment option is necessary when the pulp tissue has been negatively and irreversibly affected by decay, a very deep filling, trauma, fractures in the tooth or periodontal disease.
Minor oral surgery
A Tooth extraction is the removal of teeth from the dental socket in the alveolar bone. Extractions are performed for a variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma. Extractions are also performed to remove impacted wisdom teeth and to create space for orthodontic treatment.
Acrylic or metal partial dentures
Flexible partial dentures
Dentures or false teeth are removable prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. It is supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissue in the oral cavity. Complete dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in a single arch and partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch.
Limited orthodontic treatment
Occlusal guards for grinding
A mouth guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. It is most often used to prevent injury in contact sports or as a treatment for bruxism or temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
Tooth whitening restores the natural tooth colour. As a person ages the teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth. Teeth can also become stained from; ingesting coloured liquids (like sports drinks, cola, coffee, tea and red wine), tobacco, poor oral hygiene or chlorhexidine.
