Full check up

The full check-up is a precise inspection of the teeth and surrounding structures using physical examinations, x-rays, and other diagnostic tools.

Comprehensive oral exam is usually combined with scaling, x rays, and other diagnostic tests

 

In this appointment we can detect and assess:

Medical history

Tooth cavities

Oral hygiene level

Occlusal and biting issues

Gum health

Oral diseases

Fitness of the previous restorations

Inflammation or infection

Teeth malposition and other orthodontic problems

Oral habits

 

And then based on our findings we can recommend the best possible treatment options to the patient

 

Scaling and cleaning

Teeth scaling is a procedure for the removal of hard debris which may form even with an excellent home oral hygiene, particularly in areas that are difficult to reach and clean, like behind the lower front teeth

These hard debris called calculous or tartar are made up of mineralized dental plaques which can be a hot bed for growth of the bacteria causing gum diseases

As this debris are strongly bonded to the teeth, this cleaning cannot be done at home and It requires professional cleaning includes tooth scaling and tooth polishing 

To clean these hard deposits, different devices are needed to loosen, detach and separate them from the teeth.

Previously scaling was usually performed by manual instruments, so this procedure was time consuming and uncomfortable for the patient.

Nowadays we have this opportunity to utilize ultrasonic scaler which has a vibrating tip and can detach the hard debris easily from the teeth without damaging the tooth structures

The need for scale and clean is quite different in people, depending on their hygiene, saliva, habits, teeth anatomy and physiology, but as an average, it is recommended to be done every 6 months

 

CDBS (The Child Dental Benefits Schedule)

CDBS provides basic dental services to the eligible children. These services are capped at $1000 per child over 2 consecutive years. 

We can claim for the services online so you do not need to claim it form to the Medicare claims department

 

Dental filling

Dental filling is a treatment to replace missing tooth structure resulting from cavities or trauma

One of the most common issues revealed during dental check up is decay. 

 

With the help of dental probe, caries detectors and X-rays we examine the suspected teeth to work out the location, extension, and depth of the cavity.

 

Once a filling is needed, we advise you of your options for restoring the cavity to prevent further damage to the tooth and surrounding structures.

Usually the tooth and area surrounding area will be numb using a local anesthetics

Direct fillings

After drilling out the decayed part, we place some soft tooth-colored filling material into the tooth and build it up.

 

The material is then set hard and the tooth is restored.

 

This procedure is quick and can be done in a single appointment.

Indirect fillings

In this technique, we take an impression or scan the prepared tooth, and then the restoration is made outside of the mouth and the final restoration will be bonded or cemented in the next appointment.

 

Usually between these two appointment, a temporary filling is covering and protecting the prepared tooth

 

Crowns

A crown is an indirect dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth.

A crown may be needed to strengthen and protect a tooth which is at risk of future damages

Crowns are usually bonded or cemented onto the prepared tooth.

Although the crowns can be made from different materials, the most common materials used today are the ceramics.

 

Bridges

A bridge is a dental restoration replacing one or more missing teeth by joining a fake tooth to some crowns which are covering the adjacent teeth

They are usually bonded or cemented onto the prepared adjacent teeth and the most common materials used today are the ceramics.

 

Veneers

A veneer is a layer of tooth-colored material bonded on a tooth to improve its appearance.

There two main material used to make a veneer are the composites and the dental ceramics.

A composite veneer can be directly placed on a tooth in a single appointment

 

Bleaching

 

Tooth bleaching means lightning the color of teeth without adding or removing any structure .

It is usually desirable when teeth become yellowed can be achieved by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic color of the tooth structures.

There are different methods for bleaching which can be done either at home or on the dental chair

 

RCT

Root canal therapy is the treatment of the central part of the tooth (pulp), to eliminate the tooth infection and to prevent future bacterial attack.

In this treatment we remove, disinfect, and shape the pulpal spaces with small files and irrigating solutions. And then we fill the infected canals with some inert soft materials  

Usually he next steps are the filling and the crowning

 

Wisdom teeth surgery

Wisdom teeth are the last molar teeth of the human dentition.

The age at which wisdom teeth erupt is variable, but usually occurs between late teens and early twenties.

Wisdom teeth may stay impacted against other teeth if they do not have enough space for them to erupt.

This impaction can cause tooth decay, gum inflammation and infection in the surrounding tissues.

However, prophylactic (precautionary) extraction of disease-free impacted wisdom teeth is not recommended

 

Gum treatment and surgery

Gum disease, is a set of inflammatory conditions affecting the gum and bone surrounding the teeth.

In its early stage, called gingivitis, the gums become swollen, red, and may bleed,  in its more serious stage, called periodontitis, the gums may shrink and the bone may be lost

Eventually the teeth may become mobile or even fall out.

Treatment usually involves good oral hygiene and regular scaling and root planning.

 

In some severe cases medications or gum surgery may be needed as well.

 

Dentures

Dentures are devices made to replace all or some of the teeth and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard structures of the oral cavity.

Conventional dentures are removable and They can be either full or partial dentures.
