Let’s explore our dental services in detail:
Polished teeth can make you feel happy and confident. It is a dental procedure that gives your teeth enamel a fossy and smooth finish. Teeth polishing is a standard part of routine dental cleaning appointments in many dental clinics. First, your dentist will inspect your teeth for decay and weak spots. Next, they'll scrape any plaque and tartar found on the surface of your teeth. This step is known as scaling. Finally, your teeth are polished to clean any stains and floss, and a protective coat of fluoride is applied over them.
While stained teeth will not negatively affect your oral hygiene, they might make you feel less confident. With the advancements in the fields of science and medicine, we today have cosmetic dentistry procedures readily available. Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is one such procedure that can brighten the colour of your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile, which will elevate your confidence. A common reason for discoloured teeth is the frequent consumption of dark-coloured foods and drinks, like curry, coffee and wine. Here are the steps of the teeth whitening treatment
- The dentist will first take an impression of your teeth to create a mouthguard.
- Next, you will need to apply the bleaching gel at home using the mouthguard regularly.
- After one or two weeks, your teeth will appear much whiter than before.
While wisdom teeth removal is the most common cause among adults for teeth extraction, there are various other reasons why one may need to extract their teeth, such as having excessive tooth decay, tooth infection or crowding. Individuals who get braces may also need to remove one or two teeth to accommodate space for the other teeth when they shift into place. Before beginning the procedure, your dentist will examine your teeth by X-ray. This is also the right time to inform your doctor about any allergies or medication you might be taking. It is also vital to tell your dental professional if you have any of the following conditions:
- Thyroid disease
- Liver disease
- Renal disease
- Adrenal disease
- Artificial joints
- Impaired immune system
- History of bacterial endocarditis
- Congenital heart defect
By keeping your dentist updated about your health, they can perform the procedure and administer anesthesia keeping your condition in mind.
Bleeding gums are caused by plaque buildup on your teeth at the gum line and are generally a sign that you may have some kind of gum disease. Some common reasons why your gums are bleeding could be because:
- You have cavities
- You use a toothbrush with hard bristles
- You have a new floss routine
- You took certain medication
- You have gum disease
If your gum disease is not treated early, it could lead to severe gum diseases like gingivitis (inflamed gums) or periodontitis, which is much more severe. If you notice your gums are frequently bleeding, you can visit Emergency Dental Clinic to determine if you have a gum infection.
This is a mild type of gum disease that causes redness, swelling and irritation in your gums. It occurs in the gingiva, which is part of your gums around the base of the teeth. Look out for these signs to determine if you have gingivitis:
- Dusky red or dark red gums
- Swollen or puffy gums
- Receding gums
- Tender gums
- Bad breath
- Bleeding gums
If you have these symptoms, visit a dentist as soon as possible; otherwise, it could lead to periodontitis or tooth loss. Although it's a serious infection, it can be easily prevented by maintaining good dental habits like brushing twice daily, flossing regularly and ensuring planned dental checkups.
Periodontitis, also commonly known as gum disease, is a gum infection that damages the soft tissues. If you don't receive any treatment, the condition can severely damage the bone that supports the teeth and cause tooth loss. Some symptoms of gum disease are:
- Swollen/red gums
- Bleeding gums
- Tender gums
- Loose teeth
- Deep pockets formed between your gums and teeth
- Pain while chewing
- Bad breath
- Pus between your teeth and gums
- Gums receding or pulling away from your teeth
Periodontitis is a common oral disease but is also easily preventable by maintaining good dental hygiene. Ensure to brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily and visit your dentist for regular dental checkups.
Tongue biting is quite common and generally happens accidentally, like when eating. The injuries caused by it are usually pretty minor. Less severe wounds will heal on their own, most likely within a week. However, severe tongue injuries which are caused by traumatic events or while playing sports would need medical attention. Depending on the severity of the wound, it could take weeks or months to heal completely. Even minor tongue bites may bleed, but you must seek immediate medical attention if your tongue:
- Bleeds excessively
- Bleeds for the second time after the original bleeding has stopped
- Appears red or swollen
- Feels warm
- Has red streaks or pus
- Feels painful
- Is accompanied by a fever
- Is visibly deformed
