THE BENEFITS OF ROUTINE PROFESSIONAL TEETH CLEANING
Your oral health depends on two factors: your willingness to brush and floss regularly and your commitment to seeing your dentist every six months for an oral exam and professional teeth cleaning. You may wonder why you need to visit the dental professional so often if you are taking great care of your teeth and gums on your own, but even the most diligent patients can miss hard-to-reach areas of the mouth and leave themselves vulnerable to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Your six-month oral exam will ensure that your dentist spots any problems early in their development, but professional teeth cleaning may prevent those oral health issues, the most devastating of which is periodontal disease all together.
SCALING AND POLISHING
Scaling removes the hard tartar which forms on your teeth like scale inside a kettle. You can’t remove it just by brushing your teeth. Scaling also removes trapped food and plaque containing millions of germs, which can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Stains from coffee, tea, cigarettes or red wine are also cleaned away when we polish your teeth.
Scaling is usually a single sitting procedure and takes about 40 to 45 min only.
It is only a myth that scaling creates gap in the teeth. The fact is it removes the tartar which causes spaces between the teeth.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. Materials used for fillings include porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc). At Orthosquare our dental experts helps prevent further decay by closing off spaces where bacteria can enter with a ceramic filling.
How do you know if you need a filling? If you have a Blackish-Brownish discolouration on your tooth surface it is time you visit a dentist for examination. Another indication can be food lodgment in a tooth. Lastly mild sensitivity can be another indicator.
Filling material: One does not suit all!!! The dentist will according to the clinical situation choose what’s best for you. Depending on the dentist’s assessment, you will be suggested one of the following materials.
What is root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is the removal of the tooth pulp, a small thread like tissue in the centre of the tooth. Root canal treatment preserves a tooth and saves many teeth that would otherwise be lost. A properly done root canal with a cap can last for a lifetime. This procedure is painless as it is done under local anesthesia. At Orthosquare we have highly experienced Root canal specialists who can perform the procedure in a single sitting. We have latest technology like rotary system and laser root canal treatment for this treatment providing our patients with best quality at an affordable cost.
TOOTH EXTRACTION OR TOOTH REMOVAL
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. When a tooth or teeth are badly damaged they have to be extracted. If not replaced in time the adjacent teeth drift into the space leading to chewing problems. So it is essential to replace missing teeth.
Different types of Dentures.
1. Complete Dentures:
These are made when natural teeth are missing or removed. They can be conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures can be made about 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth have been extracted.
2. Immediate Dentures:
They are made in advance and can be placed as soon as the teeth are removed. Measurements are taken prior to the extractions to fabricate the dentures. As the bones and gums shrink during healing period after tooth extraction, they become loose and have to be replaced.
3. Implant supported Dentures:
Lower dentures are usually ill fitting because of the movements of the tongue and lips. Also in cases when the bone height/width is not enough, implant supported dentures are made. Implants are placed in the jaw bone and semi fixed dentures are made on them. (See section of dental implant)
4. Partial dentures:
When one or more teeth are missing partial dentures are made. They are removable and have to be removed at night and for cleaning. Usually a complete denture takes a minimum of 5 – 7 Visits.
General Dentistry is the term that refers to basic dental treatments like scaling, extractions, cavity fillings, root canal treatment, fluoride treatment etc.
