Dental Checkups
The best practice to prevent tooth decay and any oral diseases is having dental checkups every 6 months. During the dental checkups, your teeth and gums are examined thoroughly for any signs of disease or tooth decay. X-rays are also taken to examine the  entire portion of the tooth and the supporting structures.
Scaling and Polishing
During the dental checkups your teeth is cleaned to remove all plaques and calculus that you were unable to remove during your normal daily brushing. The teeth are then polished with a fluoride containing paste that keeps the teeth bright and make them strong.
Tooth restoration/filling
dental restoration or dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from tooth decay or external trauma. Materials used include Composite resin, Glass ionomer cement etc. these materials are biocompatible and do not cause any harm in the mouth. They are also very strong and are to able withstand the forces during chewing. The materilas are also  tooth coloured hence are not easily noticed.
Tooth Extraction/ Surgical extraction
Badly broken down tooth that are not restorable are removed by means of minor extraction. It is done under local anaesthesia and not painful. It is advisable to report early for checkup so that u don’t have to lose your tooth. Impacted tooth or tooth embedded in the bone are removed by surgical means. Impacted tooth can cause severe pain when its sits on a nerve or when the gum over it is inflamed termed pericoronitis.

  • Orthodontic treatment (Braces)

An orthodontist can carry out work that aims to achieve the following: closing wide gaps between the teeth, aligning the tips of the teeth, straightening crooked teeth, improving speech or chewing ability, boosting the long-term health of gums and teeth, preventing long-term excessive wear or trauma of the teeth, treating an improper bite. All these activities are achieved through the use of braces and other removable appliances.

  • Teeth whitening/bleaching

Want a brighter smile? When it comes to tooth-whitening, you’ve got two options: in-office-based teeth bleaching, or at-home care.

Both tooth-whitening options use peroxide-based bleaching agents. At-home systems contain from 3% to 20% peroxide (carbamide or hydrogen peroxides). In-office systems contain from 15% to 43% peroxide. There are pros and cons to each option, but before you try at-home tooth-bleaching kits, be sure to talk to your dentist. Not everyone will see good results. Bleaching will not whiten porcelain crowns or composite tooth-colored bondings.

 

 

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

Crowns and bridges

Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.
