What’s Included in Patient Care?
We will perform comprehensive exams on you to analyze your current dental condition. These examinations are used to evaluate different parts of your body like your mouth, gums, neck, teeth, throat, and jaw. Using dental examinations, we detect early signs of the disease and provide a suitable treatment option at the right time.
Signs that you may need a dental examination include a loose tooth, patches inside your mouth, severe pain in your mouth or jaw, swelling in your gums, difficulty swallowing food, pain in the ear, lumps inside your mouth.
Keeping your teeth clean is a must if you want to keep diseases and infections at bay. Our dental cleaning procedure is performed in a single visit only. We use a concave mirror to check your mouth for the build-up of plaque, tartar, and other substances.
It includes two steps – scaling and root planing. The former uses a unique tool to remove the accumulation of tartar and plaque from your teeth and gums. The latter involves the removal of plaque from the pockets of your gums. This step is a must if you have a periodontal or gum disease.
We take digital X-rays of your mouth to check its condition before deciding on a suitable treatment for your concern. A digital X-ray is taken in all the cases such as chipped or cracked teeth, fractured teeth or jawbone, dental implants procedure, root canal treatments, and others.
Our patient care also includes taking panoramic X-rays. It is a two-dimensional X-ray that captures your whole mouth in a single image. The X-ray reveals your jaw, teeth, surrounding tissues, and teeth structures.
We use a panoramic X-ray for procedures such as braces, tooth extractions, implants, and dentures. If you have a sensitive gag reflex, we carry out a panoramic X-ray over a digital one.
