GENERAL
DENTISTRY

General Dentistry encompasses the assessment, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment (both surgical and nonsurgical) of various oral diseases, disorders, and conditions affecting the oral cavity, maxillofacial region, and related structures. This care is typically administered by dentists and addresses the broader impact of oral health on overall bodily well-being.

DENTAL HEALTH SCREENING

When you arrange an appointment with us, you will undergo

a thorough and comprehensive examination as follows:

Medical History Update

Your dental health screening begins with a medical history update in which our clinical staff will ask you about any drug allergies or medications that you may have.

Gum Health Assessment

Next, you will receive a thorough checkup on your gums for the presence of ulcers and other gingival diseases that can cause bad breath, tooth loss, loose teeth or pockets between teeth and gums.

Oral Hygiene Instructions

Prevention is better than cure. Following your gum health assessment, you will be given advice on how you can take care of your teeth, prevent tooth decay as well as correct methods of brushing and flossing.

Caries Diagnosis

Not all tooth decay problems necessitate fillings but if left undetected, these caries can lead to abscess and toothaches. After instructing you on oral hygiene, your clinicians will give you a detailed diagnosis on caries.

Treatment Plan & Options

During treatment plan and options, you will be given an explanation on our assessment and all the treatment options available. This will help you make an informed decision whether to proceed with our dental services and which treatment option to choose.

Dietary Advice

Your dentist will also brief you on the types of food and drinks that should be avoided to minimize wear and tear of your teeth.

Dental X-rays

Dental X-Ray examination is needed to detect any possible dental caries or other dental problems that you may have that are not visible to the eyes.

Bite Assessment

Your bite will be assessed next. You dentist will check if your teeth can bite well together and how you can correct your bite to enjoy your food better.

AESTHETIC
DENTISTRY

Aesthetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person's teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.

Crown and Bridges

CROWNS & BRIDGES

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are indicated when the tooth is too damaged and unable to be restored by conventional filling materials.

There are basically 3 types of crowns:

 

The most common method of crowning a tooth involves using a dental impression of a prepared tooth by a dentist. The impression is then send to a dental laboratory and a technician will fabricate the crown. The crown is then bonded to the tooth using a dental cement on a second appointment.

- metal free crowns made entirely of zirconium or aluminium oxide

Bridges

A bridge is a type of dental restorations used to replace a missing tooth (or

several teeth) made up of two crowns one on each tooth on either side of the gap.

 

The two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and a false tooth/teeth in between are called pontics. Dental bridges are supported by either natural teeth or dental implants. The process of making a bridge is similar to making a crown.

 

Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.

 

Bridges are sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, because they are semi-permanent and are bonded to existing teeth or implants.

 

Porcelain, gold alloys or combinations of materials are usually used to make bridge appliances.

BRACES,
CLEAR ALIGNERS

Dental braces are devices used in orthodontics to align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person's bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural.

CONVENTIONAL METAL BRACES

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are indicated when the tooth is too damaged and unable to be restored by conventional filling materials.

Conventional Metal Braces

Traditional braces are the most common type of braces used. It consists of standard metal brackets that are adhered to your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. Coloured 0-rings hold the wire to the bracket.

They require periodic wire changes so that the wire can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw as needed. While metal braces brackets are still the most common, other treatment options are available today.

DENTURES
& IMPLANTS

A denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. it is usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal.

 

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth into that area.

Dentures & Implants
Implant 1

IMPLANTS

Dental Implants are one of the possible solutions to tooth or teeth replacement. It consists of a titanium fixture that is placed into the bone after which a crown, bridge or denture is attached to it.

The concept of implanting metal or prosthetic roots into the jaws to support teeth is not new. Archeologists have uncovered attempts at dental implants in mummies found in ancient Egypt.

Replacing a Single Tooth

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it.

Replacing Several Teeth

If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them.

Replacing All of Your Teeth

If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.

Bone Grafting

In certain cases, bone grafting procedures have to be carried out to ensure that the implant has sufficient bone coverage and stability. Bone grafting can be done before implant or during implant placement. Your dentist will access each individual case and advise you accordingly.

Sinus Augmentation

Successful dental implant placement relies on sufficient bone quantity and quality, particularly challenging in the upper back jaw due to proximity to the sinus. Sinus augmentation, elevating the sinus floor, addresses this issue by creating bone for implant support. Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark pioneered osseointegration, bonding titanium implants to bone, acting as stable anchors for tooth replacements. Dental implant procedures involve a collaborative team, including a restorative dentist for prosthesis fabrication and a skilled surgeon for implant placement. Thorough patient evaluation and meticulous planning are crucial for predictable and satisfactory outcomes in dental implant treatments.

Bone Grafting and Sinus Augmentation

The treatment consists of 3 phases,

The initial phase involves surgical implant placement, followed by a 3-6 month healing period for osseointegration. The second phase includes attaching abutments to the implants, and the final phase focuses on creating and affixing replacement teeth onto the implants and abutments, completing the restorative process.

ROOT CANAL
TREATMENT

Root canal or endodontic treatment becomes necessary when the tooth's pulp is inflamed or infected, often due to deep decay, dental procedures, or trauma. During the procedure, the damaged pulp is removed, the tooth is cleaned, filled with gutta-percha, and sealed. Finally, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling. This treatment preserves your natural smile, allows normal functioning, and, with proper care, can make the treated tooth last a lifetime, reducing the need for further dental work.

The tooth cannot be fixed.

Crack tooth can vary from a slight chip, fractured cusp, internal crack line to a vertical root fracture into the root. Treatment depends on the extend of the crack as well as the signs and symptoms.

 

Treatment can range from just a simple filling or bonding if the chip is small, crowning if the fractured cusp is too large to repair, to a possible root canal if the crack extends to the pulp chamber causing the pain. However, there are instances that a tooth need to be extracted if the crack has extended to the pulpal foor of the tooth. The dentist will do an assessment on the severity of the crack and advise you accordingly.
