ABOUT PRIMARY TREATMENT
Dental Diagnosis is the most important aspect in modern dentistry. Oral examinations, x-rays and checkups are done to ensure a proper treatment plan is drawn and executed. The dental diagnosis determines what types of treatments and how an individual patient case is to be treated.
Scaling or prophylaxis is the procedure of removing calculus (tartar), plaque and stains from the teeth. Tooth scaling is part of professional tooth cleaning.
Polishing of tooth surfaces is used to make these surfaces smooth which makes it more difficult for plaque and debris to accumulate on your teeth that causes decay or gum disease. Polishing is a preventive procedure used as a first-line defense against dental problems.
Procedure for Teeth Scaling and Teeth Polishing Treatment
When scaling and polishing is done,essentially this is a deep clean of your mouth. A special tool is used to get rid of the hard build up of calculus (tartar) then follow up by giving the teeth a thorough polish. The areas concentreated on are just below the gum line, behind your teeth and in the gaps in between them, as these are the regions commonly missed when we brush our teeth. Scaling and polishing helps prevent gum disease.
If part of a tooth has been lost through decay or damaged due to an accident, your dentist may put in a dental filling. Dental fillings are used to fill a portion of tooth or plug the hole and stop any future pain or discomfort.
Procedure for Dental Fillings Treatment
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available at our dental clinic. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
1.First evaluation and fillings tooth preparation
decay in tooth is removed and clean cavity of bacteria and debris
prepare space for the filling
2Application of dental fillings
tooth-colored material is placed in layers
a special light that "cures" or hardens each layer is applied
shape composite material to the desired result, trim off any excess material
polish final restoration
-Example of Filling Process
A denture replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Unlike dental implants, a denture is removable.
Benefits of Dentures
Prevents exisiting teeth from drifting into surrounding space of the missing teeth
Teeth out of position can damage tissues in the mouth
Helps to chew food
Types of Dentures
Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing . Complete dentures can be either "conventional" or "immediate". The framework of complete dentures may be made of resin, metal or a combination.
Implant supported overdentures are an alternate to conventional dentures whereby a full dentures is placed over the dental implants with metal bar/balls that gives better retention.
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal clasps or precision attachments that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than metal clasps and they are nearly invisible.

Air-flow is an equipment that uses a jet formed by air, powder and water in cleaning stains off from teeth surfaces. Airflow removes dental plaque, soft deposits and surface stains from pits, grooves, interproximal spaces and precise stream and free-flow technology for a clogg-free and effective cleaning. smooth surfaces of the teeth.
Air-flow Treatments Types
Air-flow may be used in various dental treatments including:
Prophylaxis : Air-flow cleans and polishes the surfaces of the teeth better with a smooth and fresh feeling
Prosthetics Dentistry: Air-flow removes superficial contamination and smear layer to ensure that composites, porcelain inlays, dental crowns, dental bridges and laminate or veneers bond properly.
Cosmetic Dentistry : Air flow treatment prior to teeth whitening improves results by eliminating the "bleach blocking" smear layer. Air-flow cleaning system removes teeth stains
Dental Implants : Airflow helps to clean teeth prior to cementing prosthesis on implants and maintains implants sound
Preventive Dentistry : air-flow may be used for cleaning teeth thoroughly to improve fluoride uptake.
Orthodontics : Air-flow is used cleaning fixed bands and brackets. Air-flow can also be used for preparing the tooth surface for bonding brackets and removing bracket adhesive that is air-flow cleans prior to bonding orthodontic brackets
Periodontics : Removes dental plaque and hence helps preventing periodontal diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis; Air-flow cleans and opens fissures for sealing
The AIR-FLOW System is a method of professional mechanical tooth cleaning for selective removal of plaque and stains from all tooth surfaces using EMS devices. It delivers a controlled stream of fine powder particles to the tooth surface through water spray and compressed air.
