Oftentimes, dental health may seem so easy to overlook and not be prioritised by many. Hence, a lot of people experience dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, tooth sensitivity, chipped teeth, etc. These issues require dental services to avoid more complicated cases.

Scale and clean
Professional cleaning is another term for scale and clean. This treatment is being used to remove tough plaque and tartar that regular brushing at home is inadequate to remove. This method will help you have healthy teeth and gums.
We advise our patients to wear mouthguards during physical contact sports to protect their teeth. They can also help support the jaw and lessen the effects of trauma if you wear them.
The depth of the tooth roots may determine how much longer tooth extraction can be completed. Some cases may take as short as a few minutes while the procedure may take longer in some circumstances, such as those with spread-out roots or those requiring surgical extraction.
Root Canal Therapy
The purpose of root canal therapy is to remove infections or inflamed tooth pulp from root canals, avoid a recurrence of infection, and save the natural tooth. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected before being filled and sealed.

Dental checkups on a regular basis are essential to your health. It allows the dentist to check your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues in your mouth. This means any problem can be detected right away and severe damage can be prevented.
A dental checkup lets your dentist detect early symptoms of decay, check for problems you can’t see or feel, and treat any other dental health issues you may be experiencing. Early intervention can keep you from having to endure more invasive dental operations later on.

- Chewing or biting causes severe pain.
- Tooth sensitivity
- Teeth that are loose.
- An oral cavity that is deep.
