• Examination and Clean
It is highly recommended to have regular dental examinations and a clean at least once every 6 months in order to improve the quality and health of your mouth and smile.
• Gum Disease and Therapy
Gum disease affects most people at some time during their life. It is a very common disease and 50% of people with gum disease may not even know that they have it. It is usually caused by a sustained build-up of plaque and tartar on teeth and the surrounding gum.
• Bruxism, Grinding and Clenching
Bruxism is the theoretical term for clenching or grinding your teeth. Most people are not even aware that they are doing this. According to the recent research, more than 80% people brux. Some people grind their teeth only during sleep.
• Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth; also called the third molars, usually do not push through the gums until the late teens or early twenties. In the majority of cases, especially in Asians due to their smaller bone structure, there will not be enough room in the jaw for all the wisdom teeth to fully emerge.
In traditional dentistry, teeth are filled by mercury based amalgam materials. The Amalgam material itself is strong and does not easily break, it tarnishes to seal micro-leakages around restoration margins.
• Root Canal Therapy
Inside your tooth is soft tissue containing nerves, blood and lymph vessels; known as the pulp. When the pulp cannot repair itself from disease or injury, it dies. A cracked tooth or deep cavity can allow bacteria to enter the pulp and cause pulp inflammation and death.
• Crown and Bridge
Dental crowns cover or cap the tooth on which they are cemented. They cover an entire tooth and protect the underlying remaining tooth structure. In comparisons, fillings are placed within a tooth and are held in by remaining tooth structure.
• Dental Implants
A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone. A crown, fixed bridge or a full set of dentures can be permanently fixed to dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth.
