Ultrasonic Scaling (Cleaning)
To fight periodontal disease, we need to reduce plaque, tartar, and the number of bacteria in the pockets in your mouth. One device we use to remove calculus from teeth is an ultrasonic scaler. It consists of a wand with a small scaling tip that produces a soft ultrasonic vibration. The small, quick vibrations in combination with a water flow give us a whole new level of effectiveness in calculus removal.
Benefits of Ultrasonic Scaling
* Increased efficiency of calculus removal
* Less need for hand scaling of stubborn deposits
* More comfortable access to the root surfaces, thanks to the small tip.

Ultrasonic scaling removes calculus and reduces the number of harmful bacteria below the gum line. It is an important tool in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease. Extensive reviews of the literature have been conducted regarding the use of power-driven scalers or manualscalers for root debridement. Results confirmed that calculus and plaque removal can be performed equally well with either manual or power-driven scalers. The data showed that root damage can occur with either manual or powered scalers if the instruments are used at the incorrect angle with excessive force, but that with proper use little damage is observed on the root surfaces.

Wound healing studies have shown significant attachment gains, as well as reductions in probing depths and bleeding on probing with both manual and ultrasonic and sonic scaling. Most studies have failed to denote any significant differences between changes in the clinical parameters when comparing manual or power-driven scalers. One notable exception is that of furcation debridement, where ultrasonic scalers with standard or newly designed furcation tips appear to be superior to manual scalers in Class II and Class III furcations. Thinner tips have been developed that increase the access to deeper pockets compared to manual scalers.
Fillings Rootcanal Treatment
Saving your natural teeth, if possible, is nearly always the best option. A root filling can be a cost-effective way to treat teeth using damaged pulp and is usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or an implant. Root treated teeth also have a very high success rate and can last a lifetime.
What does a root filling involve ?
Endodontics is a very skilled and detailed procedure. The first step is to treat any acute infection, which may involve antibiotics but should also include if possible, the extirpation or removal of the damaged pulp. Any abscess may also be drained at this time. A rubber dam or protective layer may be placed around the tooth to isolate it from the rest of the mouth. The dentist or endodontist then uses a powerful antiseptic irrigant and a selection of extremely fine instruments to clean out the root canal or canals, removing all traces of the infected pulp, and shaping it ready for the filling. X-rays will be needed to judge the length of the root canals accurately.

Often a temporary filling is placed and the tooth left to settle. At a further visit the tooth is checked and if the infection has cleared a permanent root filling is placed from the root canal to seal it up and prevent re-infection. Some endodontists prefer to do the root treatment at a single visit, especially if the pulp was damaged rather than infected.
Crown & Bridges Dentures
Dental crowns can be used for teeth which have decayed, damaged, or discolored to an extent that other normal dental treatments wouldn’t have solve.

Bridges are used in cases where a tooth is missing. A replacement tooth is attached to crowns on teeth either side of the replacement.
Better Cosmetic Treatment
When a tooth or teeth become significantly compromised, dental work may be required to repair the damage, infection or cavity. Further dental work may then be needed to strengthen the tooth or teeth, as well as provide a better cosmetic appearance.

Crowns, fillings, bridges, implants and false teeth all have important roles to play in dental restoration of teeth and or the better cosmetic appearance of teeth.

Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both. The word comes from the Greek words ortho meaning straight and odons meaning tooth.
Improving the general appearance of patients
Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as "dentofacial orthopedics".

Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasons—improving the general appearance of patients' teeth and face for cosmetic reasons—but treatment is often prescribed for practical reasons, providing the patient with a functionally improved bite (occlusion).

Periodontal (Gum) Surgery
Periodontitis is a nasty one and in most cases people don't know they have it until it is too late. If you are seeing gum recession, have very red gums that may even bleed after light teeth brushing then you should have your gums examined by a periodontist for the presence of periodontitis. Or even your local dentist will detect gum disease.
Periodontitis needs to be treated soon
What periodontitis does is the more it progresses the more the gum and the tooth it surrounds grow apart, or in other terms - the gum does not adhere to the tooth and hence does not support it well. The deeper the gum does not adhere to a tooth - the less gum support the tooth has which then leads to that tooth becoming lose and unstable, but mainly allowing infection to get even deeper between the gum and tooth. The deeper the gums are not adherent to the tooth, the easier it is for the bacteria and infection to get to the actual jawbone around the roots of the tooth - eventually causing the tooth to fall out. This can also lead to visible gum recession and even spaces between the bottom of teeth.

Oral & maxillofacial Surgery
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a branch that deals with the art of diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, pathologies and defects involving the or facial region. This specialty has evolved through the ages and presently the oral & maxillofacial surgeon deals with the various craniofacial pathologies in a multi disciplinary environment.
Surgical Correction
The specialty also performs cosmetic facial surgery involving surgical correction of deformed jawbones, nose and cheekbones for e.g. Orthognathic surgery. It also deals with surgical correction of patients born with congenital anomalies involving facial deformities (e.g.) Cleft lip and Palate Repair

The Temporomandibular joint, which is a unique joint in the body, also comes under the preview of this specialty.

Dental implants
Dental implants are the best way to replace most missing teeth. They will enable you to smile confidently, bite into an apple, taste your food and can even prevent bone shrinkage in your jaw therefore delaying one of the signs of ageing.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants replace the missing tooth root and form a stable foundation for the replacement teeth that look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Implants can be used to replace single teeth, several teeth or even a complete jaw, they can also be used to stabilise dentures from moving. The benefits of dental implants over conventional methods of tooth replacement include the preservation of the gum and the supporting bone.

They will help distribute force over your remaining teeth and therefore may lengthen the life span of your remaining teeth. Alternatives like bridgework involve cutting down neighbouring teeth and dentures are often uncomfortable to wear.

Cosmetic Dental Treatment
Cosmetic Dentistry can change your life! Perhaps that sounds like a fanciful claim, but bad teeth cause big problems. They can all but destroy self-confidence. All too often people suffer years of embarrassment and low self esteem because of unattractive teeth. They learn not to smile, don't laugh, avoid being photographed or cover their mouths whilst speaking. Even if their teeth do function adequately the hardship caused by unattractive teeth is very real and debilitating.
Good Teeth for everyone
For many years however Cosmetic Dentistry was seen as something that film stars did. It was quite exotic and costly. It was certainly beyond the reach of ordinary people. Our Cosmetic dentistry services is however fast and affordable and offers the prospect of good teeth for everyone.

X - Rays
Dental radiographs, commonly referred to as X-ray films, or informally, X-rays, are pictures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissues to screen for and help identify problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures can show cavities, cancerous or benign masses, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. Dental X-rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments.
Finding and Treating dental problems
Early tooth decay does not tend to show many physical signs. Sometimes the tooth looks healthy, but your dentist will be able to see from an x-ray (radiograph)whether you have any decay under the enamel, any possible infections in the roots, or any bone loss around the tooth.

X-rays can help the dentist to see in between your teeth or under the edge of your fillings. Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save both time and money. In children, x-rays can be used to show where the second teeth are and when they will come through. This also applies to adults when the wisdom teeth start to come through.
