Thorough check-up, diagnosis, treatment and payment plans.
Preventive measure which involves removal of plaque and tartar on the
teeth surface. The accumulation of such, when left untreated for a long time, can develop
into periodontal diseases. Therefore, it is advisable to perform this cleaning treatment
either by ultrasound, disinfection, and polishing. It is also recommended to perform this
every six months or every three months for high risk patients.
Dental Caries (Tooth Decay) is a progressive disease and can’t be treated
by its own. When a tooth has been affected by caries/decay, the treatment will consist of
elimination of the affected dental tissue, and placement of filling material of the same color,
without affecting aesthetics and function. Failure to have this treatment might cause permanent
damage up to the nerve level, which requires a root canal.
Tooth structure has fine grooves or pits, in which some are too deep that
cleaning by toothbrush is difficult, causing the accumulation of plaque. As a preventive
measure, seals are applied on the grooves/pits to protect the teeth.
This is the process of removal of the tooth nerves that were damaged
by caries or injuries. The treatment will make the tooth lost its vitality but it is
effective to preserve the tooth and prevent extraction.
Surgical process of pulling out damaged tooth from the mouth.
It’s considered as the last option when root canal can no longer save the tooth.
Bio-compatible materials placed on maxillary bone (jawbone/mandible)
through a surgical process. It serves as a fixed way of replacing lost/missing teeth.
After a root canal, the tooth could become fragile and can have a fracture
if the tooth structure is too damaged. In this case, placing a protector like a crown is
advised. There are different kinds of crowns and the dentist will give you the best option
for your treatment.
They are fine porcelain prostheses that are securely placed on the outside
of the tooth, making a minimum reduction of it. These structures are used to correct fractures,
pigmentations, minimum misalignment, tooth wear or abnormal tooth spacing.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Therapy
Temporomandibular Joint is a set of two joints. When the jaw and joints are
properly aligned, muscular actions, like chewing, can’t post any problems. When each joints are
not aligned or synchronized in movement, several problems can occur. One of the primary causes
of this disorder is the excessive tension in the group of muscles that control chewing,
swallowing, and speech. This tension may be the result of bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching),
or physical or mental stress. Therapy consists of a series of movements made by the dentist and
the patient to have the joints in place, reducing the symptoms of pain.
It is a Dentistry Specialization responsible for the correction of the
non-functional positions of the teeth. The bad teeth position may not only not perform
the normal activities of chewing, but are difficult to keep clean, running the risk of an
early loss due to caries or periodontal diseases, causing headaches for the extra stress of
the muscles associated with chewing, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction.
For the mentioned reasons, there are different techniques according to the need of the patient,
as well different types of brackets for his/her convenience.
The periodontium are supporting structures of the tooth found between
the bone of the jaw and tooth. There are different factors that can cause damage to the
periodontium, causing inflammation and bleeding, which may result to an early loss of the
teeth if adequate treatment is not carried out. Therapy is a treatment to control the
above-mentioned factors by deep cleaning at the level of the root of the teeth.
