Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth extraction is a surgical procedure performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon to remove one or more wisdom teeth.

If a wisdom tooth doesn’t have room to grow, resulting in pain, infection or other problems, you’ll likely need to have it extracted.

To prevent potential problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren’t currently causing problems.

Children’s Dentistry

Since every child is different, dentists have various approaches to help a child complete necessary dental treatments.

A pediatric dentist makes recommendations of behaviour guidance methods for a child based upon health history, special health care needs, dental needs, type of treatment required, the consequences of no treatment, emotional and intellectual development, and parental preferences.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a simple procedure to relieve dental pain and save damaged teeth. Patients usually need a root canal when there is inflammation or infection in the roots of a tooth.

During root canal therapy, an endodontist who specialises in such therapy carefully removes the pulp inside the tooth, cleans, sanitises, and shapes the root canals, then places a filling to seal the space.

Emergency Dentistry

A dental emergency is a dental problem, usually associated with the teeth and jaws, which may have signs that require immediate attention by a dentist.

For example, a severe dental infection, visible swelling, or recent dental trauma are all considered emergency problems that require prompt, professional attention.

If you have a dental emergency, call and visit your dentist immediately. He or she is the right person to help you in time of need.

Tooth Fillings

Teeth can be filled with various materials, including gold, amalgam, mercury, porcelain, and composite resin.

Your dentist will remove the decayed portions of the tooth and then fill the space in the tooth where the decay was removed.

Tooth fillings are also used to fix cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been damaged from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction in adulthood is sometimes necessary.

Though permanent teeth were meant to last for life, there are several reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary.

A very common reason is a tooth that is severely damaged by trauma or decay, which requires repair.

Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are replacements for teeth that have decayed or lost a lot of their original strength and structure. Restorations are generally used to repair teeth compromised by decay or previous restorations, for cosmetic reasons, to change the way your teeth meet together, or to protect a tooth that has had a root canal therapy.

Dental bridges contain an artificial tooth, or ‘pontic’, which is anchored to a couple of crowns. These bridges fit over the natural teeth on both sides of a gap, which help secure the false tooth in place and ensure a natural-looking appearance.

Dentures

Dentures are a set of replacement teeth.

If you have quite a few missing teeth as a result of trauma or disease, dentures can help.

They are removable false teeth that look and work in much the same way as natural teeth.

Gum Treatments

There are multiple treatments for gum disease, depending on the severity of the disease, how you may have responded to earlier procedures, and your overall health.

Treatments range from nonsurgical procedures that control bacterial growth to surgery to restore supportive tissues.

Periodontal Care

Gum diseases attack the gums and the bone that support the teeth. Plaque is a sticky film of saliva, food debris, and bacteria. If plaque is not removed, it develops into tartar (calculus).

When plaque and calculus are not eliminated, they begin to destroy the gums and bone. Periodontal disease is characterised by redness, swelling, and bleeding of the gums.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should children see the dentist?

Children should see the dentist when their first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday.

How often should one brush and floss their teeth?

We recommend brushing and flossing at least twice a day, once in the morning, preferably after breakfast and once in the night after dinner and just before bedtime.

What are sealants?

Sealants are thin plastic-like coatings applied to the crevices present on the chewing surface of back teeth – premolars and molars. The sealant flows deep into the grooves, acting as a barrier, so that plaque and food do not get stuck and cause cavities.
