A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from a certified dental hygienist. A check-up and cleaning should be performed every 6-9 months to remove plaque and tartar. If plaque and tartar are not removed, it might result in gum disease and tooth decay.
A filling is a way to restore a decayed or broken tooth to its normal shape and function. Several kinds of filling materials can be used such as gold, silver, porcelain and plastic. Depending on the clinical situation you and your dentist would decide on the material best suited for you.
Custom designed sports guards and night guards are each made of different types of plastic and moulded to fit the shape of your teeth.
Sports guards are recommended to protect the jaw, tongue, cheek lining and teeth during sporting activities where trauma to the mouth may occur.
Night guards are recommended for patients who clench or grind their teeth to prevent symptoms related to that such as chipped or broken teeth and sore neck and jaw muscles.
Sealants are a common preventive treatment in dentistry. Some teeth have fine grooves or pits that accumulate plaque, not because the person doesn't brush, but because the grooves are too narrow to allow even one bristle into them. When plaque accumulates, it can lead to cavities and other types of tooth decay. To apply sealants, plastic material is brushed onto the tooth, filling these narrow grooves and preventing the cavity-causing buildup. Sealants make healthy teeth possible.
