Prophylaxis / Cleaning / Consultation

dental-cleanup-phuket

Most oral specialists recommend that you should have a dental check-up every six months as this allows your dentist to detect dental problems as well as preventing ongoing dental concerns. Cleaning involves the removal of plaque and calculus that accumulates on teeth and again should be completed at regular intervals.

Deep Cleaning (full quadrant)

Like regular cleaning, your dentist may recommend deep cleaning, where not only the teeth are cleaned and polished, but the cleaning includes scaling and root planing, which removes bacteria, calculus or tartar and debris that has collected under the gum line.

dental-cleanup-phuket

Filling a tooth which has a cavity, which usually involves the dentist drilling around the cavity to remove all of the “damage” before filling the cavity with a white “tooth coloured” composite resin filling. For very large cavities, the pulp and roots maybe infected and root canal therapy maybe recommended by the dentist.

Veneer

Dental veneers are a thin covering of porcelain or composite that are placed over the tooth and are commonly used when teeth are too big or small, or have uneven surfaces. Veneers are also used to cosmetically enhance the aesthetics of teeth, improving colour and imperfect teeth.

Implants

Implant

dental-cleanup-phuket

Dental implants are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically implanted into the jaw and over time, fuses with the bone. This fusion usually takes up to 6 months. A crown is then placed on top of the screw or implant. Not all clients can have a dental implant, as bone density and volume, along with the opposing teeth are contributing factors to assess if a client is a suitable candidate to have an implant. Generally the implant is conducted in stages, the first of which is the placement of the titanium screw, followed by a 3-6 month period where the implant is not covered and left exposed to fuse with the bone. The next step is to attaching a post to the implant, and finally, to attach a crown to the implant and post.
