What are the General Dental Procedures?
- Dental Examinations
We perform dental examinations and complete diagnostic tests to monitor your dental health. It includes carrying out a visual examination, taking X-rays or ultrasounds, and performing oral cancer screening. We will diagnose any dental issue you may be suffering from and provide further treatment.
- Dental Fillings
Cavities are the most common dental problem, and people of all age groups may experience it. We treat this condition with dental fillings. The procedure involves using a composite resin material to fill the space after cleaning the infection or decay. Fillings restore your tooth functionality as well.
- Root Canal
If the infection or decay has reached your dental pulp, we will perform root canal therapy. This surgical procedure ensures that you do not have to undergo tooth extraction. We will administer anesthesia so that you do not feel pain during any part of the procedure. This surgery is followed by dental fillings or crowns.
- Tooth Extraction
If the decay in your teeth is so severe that even a root canal procedure cannot save it, you may need a tooth extraction. The procedure involves extracting the decayed or infected teeth, cleaning and disinfecting the area, and suturing it.
- Periodontal Therapy
Periodontal or gum disease is becoming increasingly common today. If not addressed on time, the condition may worsen and even affect your overall health. We perform dental cleaning procedures such as scaling and root planing to clean the accumulation of tartar and plaque on your gums and stop the disease from advancing.
