Oral Prophylaxis / Scaling (cleaning)

Prophylaxis. Dentist will remove the plaque and tartar that builds up and hardens on the tooth surface.

Scaling and root planing. This is a deep-cleaning, nonsurgical procedure, done w/ or w/out a local anesthetic, whereby plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line are scraped away and rough spots on the tooth root are made smooth (planing). Smoothing the rough spots removes bacteria and provides a clean surface for the gums to reattach to the teeth.

Restorative Dentistry

1.) Dental Fillings ("3M")

These are white tooth colored materials used to fill in the cavity of a tooth that has been decayed. Material used is of composite (3M).

Advantages of composite white fillings:

  • It restore most of the original strength of the tooth.
  • It restore the natural appearance of the tooth.
  • It is more esthetic/natural looking.
  • Composites are mercury-free.
  • Composites require less removal of tooth structure.

2.) Dental Sealants ("3M")

Dental Sealant/Pit and Fissure sealant is a material used to coat the top, chewing surfaces of the back teeth. This coating protects the tooth from decay and usually lasts a long time.

When should my child get dental sealants?
It is suitable to place sealants on the erupting first molars at the age of 6yrs. old followed by the erupting second molars. If sealants were applied in conjunction with the appropriate use of fluoride, most tooth decay in children could be prevented.

Are dental sealants just for kids?
The potential to develop pit and fissure decay begins early in life, so children and teenagers are the candidates. But some adults at high risk of decay can benefit from sealants as well.

3.) Dental Inlays / Onlays

Inlay and onlys are similar to dental fillings used to fill-in cavities or damaged teeth. But unlike fillings, inlays and onlays are made from porcelain or gold providing good strength for larger cavities.

A dental inlay covers a portion of the occlusal and proximal surfaces; it is used to replace small fillings. A dental onlay covers the proximal surfaces and most or all of the occlusal surfaces as well as the cusp of the tooth. It is used to replace very large fillings.

Cosmetic Dentistry

1.) Bleaching / Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and discoloration from teeth. This in turn can make people feel better about themselves and could have an instant white bright smile.

Our "BEYOND Power Whitening System" uses a cold- light technology and proprietary gel formulation (hydrogen peroxide and 20 nanometer silicon dioxide) combine to whiten teeth to their brightest in just 30 minutes w/out any side effects.

What is the difference between Beyond and other whitening methods?
This technique whitens right away w/out side effects. It doesn't damage your teeth, and gives the best possible results.

How long does treatment take w/ BEYOND?
It only takes 30-40 minutes not longer than the time you'd have your haircut or manicure done, or having a cup of coffee-it's that simple!

How safe is BEYOND?
This is absolutely safe because it uses cold light technology at a low temperature, it cannot irritate the nerves of your teeth nor damage your teeth and gums.

2.) Veneers / Laminates

Veneers are porcelain-ceramic wafer thin laminates or shells of tooth colored material that are "cemented" to the front surface of teeth to improve cosmetic appearance.

What Treatments or problems are veneers used for?

Stained Teeth - badly stained teeth that cannot be improved by teeth whitening or prophylactic treatments can greatly be improved by dental veneers, which function to cover and "hide" any existing stains on your natural teeth.

Damaged Teeth - A small chip on a tooth can quickly be repaired with veneers.

Gaps - spaces or gaps (diastemas) between your teeth can be easily closed using dental veneers giving you a more uniform looking smile.

Crooked teeth - instead of having orthodontic treatment for crooked teeth which may take up a year or longer, the veneers can provide an "instant orthodontics", giving a similar end result of a straight and perfectly aligned looking smile.

Endodontic Dentistry

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure in which the diseased or damaged pulp of a tooth is removed and the inside areas (the pulp chamber and root canals) are filled and sealed. Once root canal treatment is performed, the patient must have a crown placed over the tooth to protect it.

Causes of infected pulp:
Nerve and pulp can become irritated, inflamed and infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth and/or large fillings, a crack or chip in the tooth.

Indications of a Root Canal Treatment:
1. Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
2. Prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures
3. Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
4. A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
5. Darkening of the tooth
6. Sometimes no symptoms are evident

Prosthodontic Dentistry

1.) Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.

Uses of a Dental Crown:
1. To protect and restore a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
2. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
3. To hold a dental bridge in place
4. To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
5. To cover a dental implant and after root canal treatment.

Types of Crowns:
Permanent crowns can be made from all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic.

1. All-ceramic or all-porcelain dental crowns provide the best natural color match than any other crown type and may be more suitable for people with metal allergies.

2. Porcelain fuse to gold is also the most esthetic choice for crowns. It maybe expensive but offers the best natural look and is biocompatible to the tooth structure.

3. Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns is next to all-ceramic crowns and they look most like normal teeth. These crowns are also a good choice for front or back teeth.

4. Metals used in crowns include gold alloy, other alloys like a base-metal alloy (for example, nickel or chromium). Less tooth structure needs to be removed with metal crowns, and tooth wear to opposing teeth is kept to a minimum. Metal crowns can withstand biting and chewing forces well. Also, they rarely chip or break. Metal crowns are a good choice for molars.

5. All-resin dental crowns are less expensive than other crown types. However, they wear down over time and are more prone to fractures than porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. These are used primarily for temporary crowns.

2.) Dental Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge is made up of crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap /space. These anchoring teeth are called "abutment teeth" (supporting teeth). The false teeth that fills in the space/gap are called pontics. The crowns can be made from gold, metal alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or dental implants.

Advantages of Dental Bridges:

  • Restore your smile
  • Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
  • Maintain the shape of your face

3.) Dentures

A denture is a removable tooth appliance in replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available - complete and partial dentures.

Complete Dentures
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth.

Partial Dentures("Valplast")
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain or only a few teeth are missing.

A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic/rubberized base. It is removable and has internal attachments.

4.) Mouthguards

Mouth guards are thin "u" shaped coverings worn over teeth, and often used to protect teeth from injury from teeth grinding and during sports.

Who Needs a Mouth Guard?
Mouth guards can be used by anyone - both children and adults - who grind their teeth at night who play contact sports such as football, boxing, soccer, basketball. However, even those participating in noncontact sports (for example, gymnastics) and any recreational activity (for example, skateboarding, mountain biking) that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard.

Dental Implants ("alpha bio system")


Dental implants are metallic cylinders that are placed into the jawbone where original teeth once existed. These root-like cylinders are used to secure a replacement tooth in place in a spot where a tooth is missing. Implants provide a strong foundation and support for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

Dental implants are made of various biomaterials. Most commonly, a surgical metal called "titanium" is used, because it is the most compatible with human biology. They are surgically placed in the jawbone, right in the dentist's office, using a local anesthetic. Patients who have good oral hygiene and take care of their new teeth can enjoy implants that last a lifetime.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. They are permanent because they are designed to fuse with bone.
  • Improved speech. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip compared to those poor fitting dentures.
  • Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Convenience and comfort. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.
  • Ease while eating. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile, and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improved oral health. More of your own teeth are left intact because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, thus improving your long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
1. Patients should have healthy gums.
2. They should have enough bone support to hold the implant.
3. They also must have a meticulous good oral hygiene and of regular dental visits.

1. Those who are heavy smokers
2. People suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders (Diabetes/ Heart diseases)
3. Patients having radiation therapy to the head/neck area

Bone Grafts

Bone grafting involves using fragments of your own bone, synthetic bone, or donated bone to replace bone destroyed by periodontal disease. The grafts serve as a platform for the regrowth of bone, which restores stability to teeth. New technology, called "tissue engineering", encourages your own body to regenerate bone and tissue at an accelerated rate.

Oral Surgery

1.) Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is removal of teeth and may be done when:

  • the tooth is severely decayed
  • there is advanced periodontal disease ("gum disease")
  • the tooth may be broken such that it cannot be repaired
  • other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth)
  • preparation for orthodontic treatment ("braces") Normal tooth extraction is a simple process and is normally completed in one visit. After tooth is removed, the gums are usually left to heal before the gap is replaced by dental bridges, dental implants or dentures.

2.) Impacted 3RD Molar Surgery

"Wisdom teeth", otherwise known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to develop. More often, one or more of these third molars fails to emerge in proper alignment or fails to fully emerge through the gum line and becomes entrapped or "impacted" between the jawbone and the gum tissue.

Why is surgical removal of impacted 3rd molar recommended?
1. Impacted 3rd molar can result to swelling, pain and infection of the gum tissue around the
     wisdom tooth.
2. Impacted wisdom tooth can cause permanent damage to nearby gums, teeth and bone.
3. This can further lead to cyst formation/tumors which can affect the jawbone.

Orthodontic Dentistry ("braces")

1. Self -ligating brackets consists of both clear and metal parts allowing braces to be less visible without the need of elastic bands. This enables less frictional force and in certain cases faster treatment outcome. This is the most convenient method used for orthodontics.

2. Metal braces are smaller than ever before and you can express your individuality. Part of the fun of having braces is choosing different-colored elastics at each appointment.

3. Clear or ceramic braces make treatment nearly invisible. The polymer brackets makes it translucent while ceramic brackets are tooth-colored, making it one of the most popular aesthetic choices in braces today.

4. Removable appliances include retainers and active plates.
Retainers are normally worn after fixed braces are removed in maintaining teeth in preventing relapses.
Active plates are commonly worn by children in guiding their erupting teeth into specific positions.

"FORESTADENT-Quick Bracket System"

These are self ligating brackets and are the smallest brackets in the market. You benefit from great aesthetics. This system keeps your appointments with your dentist short and reduce the overall treatment time drastically,thus achieving a faster result.

Advantages of Forestadent:
1. Great aesthetic because of its small size bracket
