GENERAL DENTISTRY

Tooth Coloured Fillings

Our expert team will provide fillings that will match your teeth and mouth. Continuous advancement in dental materials has led to different types of tooth colored fillings and bonding agents with improved properties and strength. This results in high quality fillings with greater colour stability, optimal shades, wear resistance for posterior teeth and different translucencies for the anterior teeth

Amalgam Restorations

Although we do not often place amalgam fillings, we believe they have a place in dentistry where colour restorations fail. We do not usually advise changing of amalgam fillings unless there are associated problems. Amalgam has been used in dentistry for more than 150 years on millions of people worldwide and has been shown to be a safe and an effective choice. Most dental work has a limited life span and should be checked regularly in the chair and radiographically.

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

The aim of root canal treatment is to restore a tooth that has been badly damaged due to decay, disease or injury AND has infected pulp (nerve). Root canal treatment is successful in most cases provided the patient takes good care of the treated tooth; it may last for many years and possibly for the rest of your life. A large number of teeth are saved from extraction by having root canal treatment each year. We can care for your extensively decayed and infected tooth through Nickel-Titanium devices and thermal filling material.

DENTURES

As we age, our teeth gradually deteriorate and our gums become affected with infection and recession. Bone height decreases, teeth become loose/painful and require removal. When many teeth are lost or extracted, a denture maybe fitted to maintain normal chewing, improve speech and the appearance of the face. With modern technology, dentures look more natural and fit better than ever before, especially if the denture is supported by implants.

Types of dentures:

  • Conventional Dentures
  • Implant Supported Dentures
  • Denture Repair
  • Denture Relining
  • Bite may be increased to treat facial pain caused by jaw joints and over stretching of ligaments. Also to improve appearance

FAMILY & CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY

Children’s Dentistry

Pediatric or children dentistry is one of the main and important branches of dentistry and should be provided in any dental clinic. Good knowledge of children’s psychology is required to deal with them in a very friendly, pain-free approach. The best time for the first dental visit for a child is after his/her first birthday with a simple dental checkup. Advice will be given to parents in regards to oral hygiene. A second visit may be required should any further treatment be needed.

Family Dentistry

Family dental care is another important part of dentistry. This includes pregnant and breast-feeding patients. During pregnancy, the mother will undergo psychological and hormonal changes which can alter gum permeability and salivary rate and flow. This in turn can lead to oral health ignorance, gingival swelling and bleeding with an increased chance of more cavitations in teeth. It is important that the pregnant patient attend for personalized dental care with special attention to oral hygiene.
