Good dental hygiene helps promote overall bodily health. That is why regular dental check-ups, at least twice a year, are recommended. At Dr. Karishma Aesthetics, we offer you a range of general dentistry services, from six monthly cleaning to standard tooth extractions.
We will scale and polish your teeth to remove plaque build-up, provide fluoride treatment, take necessary x-rays and provide oral hygiene instructions.
Sealants are a plastic coating that protects the chewing surfaces of a tooth from decay. Permanent molars are the teeth most commonly helped by sealants. Children in their early teens benefit most from sealants because the effects will be more beneficial in the long run. However, anyone can go in for this procedure. Sealant application is quick and easy with results that can last up to 10 years.
A filling is carried out to restore a tooth that has been damaged by decay and to prevent further decay. The decayed portion is removed and the tooth is cleaned and prepped for the filling material. Several materials, such as gold, amalgam, porcelain and composite resin, are used as fillers. Composite resin is preferred as it is tooth colored.
Wearing a mouthguard is an important precaution for anyone involved in sporting activity. It protects against chipped or broken teeth, root and bone damage, and tooth loss. It also safeguards against serious injuries such as jaw fracture, cerebral haemorrhage, concussion and neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw jams into the upper jaw. By keeping soft tissue in the mouth away from the teeth, mouth guards help prevent cutting and bruising of the lips, tongue and cheeks, especially for athletes who wear orthodontic appliances.
Protection from Tooth Grinding – This disorder can damage your teeth and jaws. Wearing a mouthguard while sleeping, which is when it usually occurs, can protect your teeth. At Dr. Karishma Aesthetics, we can fashion a mouth guard that fits comfortably into your mouth and allows you to indulge in your chosen sport with a greater sense of security.
Tooth extraction may be necessary in two cases
If the tooth has deep decay or a serious infection that cannot be healed.
Wisdom teeth – these are molar teeth that emerge in the late teens. They may need to be extracted as they are sometimes prevented by the other teeth from emerging fully, which can cause pain and infection.
