GENERAL DENTISTRY

 

SCALING AND POLISHING

 

Scaling and polishing, also commonly known as ‘dental cleaning’, is the process of using ultrasonic tools or dental hand instruments to remove dental plaque, calculus and stains which have accumulated on the teeth over time.

 

TOOTH FILLING

 

Tooth fillings are done by dentists to repair a tooth affected by decay or trauma.

 

EXTRACTIONS/WISDOM TOOTH SURGERY

 

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Occasionally, there has been too much damage to the tooth that it cannot be repaired. In this case, the tooth will need to be extracted. A very loose tooth also will require extraction if it cannot be saved, even with bone regeneration surgery (bone graft).

 

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

 

Root canal treatment is a procedure that involves the removal of the damaged or inflamed nerves from a tooth. It is then followed by cleaning and removal of bacteria from the nerve canal, before placing a root filling to restore it.

 

MOUTHGUARDS

 

A mouthguard is a covering worn over teeth to protect them from injury resulting from tooth grinding or physical injury during sports.

 

RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

 

DENTAL CROWNS AND BRIDGES

 

A crown is an indirect restoration used to restore a badly broken down tooth, and to prevent further decay and damage.

 

DENTURES

 

Dentures are an option to replace teeth that are missing. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable and not permanently fixed in the oral cavity.

 

DENTAL IMPLANTS

 

Similar to dental bridges and dentures, dental implants are indicated when there is a need to replace a missing tooth or teeth.



Do I need to see a dentist even if my teeth feel fine?

 

It is very important to schedule regular cleanings. There are many problems which can exist without you knowing. Not only can we identify problems before they become a painful and expensive experience, but we can also help to keep your smile looking beautiful.

 

Do teeth need fluoride?

 

Fluoride helps make teeth strong and prevents decay. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association (ADA) agree that kids should use fluoride toothpaste for brushing, taking care not to swallow it. 

Adults benefit from using fluoride to protect their teeth, too.

 

What do dental hygienists do?

 

Dental hygienists provide individualised and systematic oral health care. They examine your mouth and address concerns related to your oral health. 

In addition, dental hygienists perform preventive procedures such as scaling and polishing, taking X-rays, apply fluoride to prevent decay; and provide support for healthy lifestyle choices in the form of smoking cessation strategies, and oral health counselling.

 

Are dental X-rays safe and needed?

 

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. 

Expect to get them during a first exam after not seeing a dentist for a while. This helps check tooth and gum health. If you have gum disease, the dentist may want X-rays every 6 months. For regular check-ups, it is about every 2 years, depending on your oral condition. 

Kids have more X-rays done than adults because their teeth are changing and because they get cavities more easily.
