As dental professionals, we want children to be enthusiastic about their oral hygiene instead of dreading a visit to the dentist. This is the reason we provide a warm and welcoming environment for children at our clinic. From basic examinations for cavities and dental diseases to applying fillings to decayed teeth, we do them all.
It’s important to teach your children good oral hygiene. This can help them avoid a lifetime of tooth problems. Not only do regular checkups keep you updated about your child’s teeth eruption patterns but also help observe any warning signs of oral diseases. Whether it’s fixing a decayed tooth or tooth extraction, you can rely on us.
Living with a cavity can be painful and lead to the loss of the tooth. The decayed portion of the tooth is filled to make it whole again. Chipped or cracked tooth can also be restored with fillings. The fillings can be made out of a range of materials, such as porcelain, gold, silver, amalgam or tooth-coloured composite resin.
These fillings are durable, depending on what material you have chosen and how you care for them. They support the structure of the tooth and avoid further decay and damage. When you come into our clinic for teeth restoration, our doctors will discuss the possible options with you before the procedure begins.
Preventative dentistry involves keeping your teeth healthy throughout your life. This is possible with routine dental checkups, x-rays, and teeth cleaning along with developing good oral habits such as brushing and flossing. You will also have to follow precautions so as to not put your teeth and oral health at risk, including using mouthwash to rinse your mouth, avoiding acidic foods, being careful while eating hard foods, wearing a mouth guard when necessary and much more.
Periodontal Treatment (Gums)
Periodontal or gum disease is a pathological inflammation that occurs in the gums. This can adversely affect your gums and destroy your bone structure. Periodontal treatment helps thoroughly clean the pockets around your teeth to prevent the accumulation of bacteria.
It is important to take care of your gums and keep them clean to avoid bacteria formation. This can cause the formation of plaque that releases toxins to irritate and inflame the gums. If not treated, this can lead to periodontal disease. Healthy gums protect your bone structure and keep your teeth intact.
Crowns (Porcelain Caps)
Dental crowns are used to cover up the external portion of your teeth. They enhance the appearance and function of your teeth. The crowns are custom-made to fit the unique shape of your teeth. You can choose porcelain caps if you have severe enamel erosion or have irreparable damage to your tooth.
Porcelain caps give you a natural look as they resemble the colour and texture of your existing teeth. They can fully restore the functioning of your teeth as well. Whether your teeth have been damaged due to tooth decay or by grinding your teeth, porcelain caps can fill the gap and make your teeth whole again.
Root Canal Therapy
When the root canal of your tooth is infected, the infected pulp is carefully removed and cleaned. The cavity is then sealed and capped with a dental crown. If left untreated, it could lead to intense toothaches, loss of tooth and compromised bone structure of your jaw.
Root canal therapy can help reduce the risk of losing a tooth completely. It also helps avoid any nerve damage that maybe caused due to the infection. The root canal therapy is a much easier, simpler and cost-effective method to save your tooth structure when compared to replacing your original tooth with an artificial one.
