Damon System

Certified Damon System doctors combine three key components, which when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:

  1. Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
  2. Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
  3. A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.

Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus the Damon System is available in clear brackets for those image conscious patients.

Oral Health: Adults

Information

Oral Health

Regular and correct hygiene habits are essential to health. With age and disease, there may be a decrease in manual dexterity making it more difficult to practice these habits. Older adults may need to use electric toothbrushes and other special brushes to clean between teeth. People with arthritis or other limitations to movement may need modified toothbrushes with thicker handles.

Many adults have the habit of visiting their dentists only when a problem arises in their mouth. Apart from eating a well-balanced diet and practising effective home care, regular dental visits are crucial for maintaining a good and effective dentition for all age groups. The belief that fluoride only benefits children is not true as fluoride helps prevent decay in all age groups. Our mouths affect our physical health and our psychological well-being at any age. Good oral habits like brushing and flossing need to be maintained all through life.

Follow these simple steps to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

  1. Brush twice daily, especially once before bedtime. Make sure that all the surfaces of teeth and gum are cleaned for effective plaque removal
  2. Use fluoride toothpaste and after brushing spit the toothpaste out. Avoid rinsing the paste from your mouth after brushing as this will wash the fluoride away from your teeth
  3. Floss or use interdental brushes once daily to clean between your teeth
  4. Avoid eating sugary, sticky and acidic foods and drinks in between meals
  5. Eat a wide variety of nutritious foods
  6. Visit the dentist for regular check-ups. The dentist can spot and stop any problems with your teeth and gums at the early stages
Dental Check-up

There are many things a dentist can spot during a dental check-up such as weakening older fillings, early signs of gum (periodontal) disease, gum recessions, tooth and root surface decay, and many other oral problems that can affect your general health. Early detection will help treat the problem at the early stages and stop it from becoming more severe. Dentists can also look for early signs of oral cancer and other diseases that affect your general health.

During a check-up, dentists may also take x-rays that will help them see cavities between the teeth and under old fillings, bone loss under the gums, and infections at the end of the root, the dentist will also use x-rays to help assess the shape of the roots before root canal procedures. You can also get a professional clean done by our dentist to remove calculus (hardened, calcified plaque) that is hard to remove from the teeth by brushing and flossing alone.

Common Problems

Gum Disease

Gum (Periodontal) disease is an inflammatory disease caused by bacteria accumulation (dental plaque) above and below the gum line. Dental plaque is a soft, sticky and initially invisible film of bacteria that forms on teeth. If not removed by brushing and flossing, the bacteria in dental plaque can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Signs of gum disease may include red, swollen or bleeding gums, bad breadth, gum recession, pain or discomfort in teeth, gums or soft tissues of the mouth, or loosening of teeth over time.

Gingivitis (gum inflammation) is a mild form of gum disease and is most common in adults. At this stage, the bacteria attack the soft tissues around your teeth, creating red or swollen gums which become prone to bleeding. Gingivitis can be treated and reversed by professional cleaning and effective home care. If left untreated, gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, affecting the supporting bone and ligaments of your teeth, resulting in loose teeth and eventually tooth loss.

Uncontrolled gum disease has been associated with increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and respiratory disease. People with diabetes are more prone to infections and need to be especially aware of the possibility of having gum disease. Older adults with poor oral hygiene may suffer from gum disease without being aware of it until advanced symptoms like looseness of the teeth occur. You can prevent gum disease by brushing twice daily and flossing once a day. This is complemented by scaling and root planning of all affected tooth surfaces and the gum areas. Scaling and root planning is a deep-cleaning, non-surgical procedure, done under local anesthetic, whereby plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line are cleaned away and rough spots on the tooth root are made smooth. Smoothening the rough spots removes bacteria and provides a clean surface for the gums to re-attach to the teeth. Afterwards, you may feel some discomfort for up to 48 hours.

Erosion

Erosion is the loss of the surface of the tooth, especially enamel that is caused by acid attack. This is different from bacterial acid attack that we call tooth decay. Enamel is the hard outer surface of the tooth seen when we smile and it protects the sensitive dentine underneath. Erosion of the enamel can lead to exposure of the dentine, which may lead to pain and sensitivity with cold foods and drinks.

Erosion is a slow process that people generally do not become aware of until significant enamel is already lost. Erosion often shows up as hollows on the top surface of the molar teeth or the teeth seem to become smaller or thinner as the enamel erodes away. As the enamel wears away exposing the underlying dentine the teeth may appear a darker yellow colour -the colour of the dentine- and sensitivity to hot, cold or acidic foods and drinks may become noticeable.

How to prevent dental erosion?

  1. Limit the number of times each day you eat and drink acid foods and drinks – this reduces the number of acid attacks on your teeth
  2. Don’t hold your drinks in the mouth or swish the drinks around your mouth
  3. Finish your meals with cheese or a milk drink as this will help to neutralize the dietary acids
  4. If you eat or drink anything acidic, wait for about one hour before brushing your teeth. Brushing straight after acidic foods and drinks may cause even more enamel damage.
Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is a common complaint which is a relatively easy problem to solve. Studies show that 1 in 4 people suffer from sensitive teeth, particularly for the 25-45 age groups and in women. People most likely to suffer from marginal tooth sensitivity are those who over-enthusiastically brush their teeth, consume more than usual amounts of wine or citrus drinks, have had treatment for gum disease or have special medical problems like bulimia.

People whose teeth are sensitive feel pain when they eat or drink things which are very cold, hot or sweet and when brushing. Pain from sensitivity is sudden, sharp, and stabbing but subsides very quickly. If left untreated, the pain of sensitivity can lead to poor oral hygiene – it can become quite painful for the sufferer to brush their teeth so they stop doing a thorough job, which only makes the sensitivity problem worse. The problem area is usually near the gum margin where the tooth “nerve” may be exposed because of a receding gum line. Their problem is the tooth margin – just below the enamel and where the ‘nerve’ is most exposed. Normally it is covered up.

Dentists can recommend desensitising toothpastes as a good way to deal with the problem. Dentists also advise people to use the right type of toothbrush, especially as many tooth sensitivity comes from over-brushing with a hard brush. Soft brushes are recommended but even with a soft brush a careful non-scrubbing technique is recommended. If you are experiencing continued problems with tooth sensitivity, it is probably a good idea to visit the dentist. No one needs to suffer from this problem and there is often a simple solution.

Tooth Decay

Older adults may see an increase in tooth decay due to reduced saliva. Saliva helps to wash away the acids produced by bacteria in plaque – acids that attack the tooth structure and cause decay. Adults may also be prone to decay because of exposed root surfaces or worn-out chewing surfaces where the protective layer of hard enamel has been lost. Decay on these surfaces can spread rapidly. We can carry out saliva tests to check on the quality of saliva and recommend ways to increase protection against tooth decay. Examples of such protection include regular fluoride applications, use of calcium creams at home and the use of fluoride containing filling materials rather than amalgams.

Teeth Whitening

If you wish to have a brighter smile, then teeth whitening may be an option for you. Ask your dentist for help as they can provide more effective teeth whitening treatments than the ‘do-it-yourself’ kits available at pharmacies. Before having your teeth whitened, your dentist will check to make sure your teeth are suitable to be treated. In some cases treatment may be difficult or ineffective, for example with staining caused during tooth formation by certain antibiotics. Teeth whitening may make your old fillings or crowns look darker after treatment, so it is very important to be checked and advised of this.

Dry Mouth

Dry mouth or Xerostomia is a condition where the mouth becomes very dry due to reduced saliva flow. With age, our salivary glands may naturally produce less saliva leading to dryness of the mouth. It is also caused by certain medical conditions and is also a side effect of medications such as antihistamines, painkillers, high blood pressure medications, diuretics, antidepressants and others. Problems associated with dry mouth are difficulty in swallowing, sore throat, problems with speaking and a burning sensation in the mouth. People suffering from dry mouth are more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath and soft tissue irritation for denture wearers.

Your dentist can help prevent problems associated with dry mouth by recommending appropriate methods or treatments to restore moisture in your mouth, or by discussing your medications with your doctor to allow a change if that is possible.

Worn-Out Denture

Dentures need to be changed every 3 to 5 years. This is because the gums and teeth that support dentures will change shape and position over time. Continuing to use worn-out dentures that do not fit well can cause a range of problems like ulcers or sores on the gums and looseness of remaining teeth. Furthermore, chewing will not be so efficient. We schedule regular check-ups for older patients to make sure that their dentures are in good condition and that they are cleaning their dentures and natural teeth.

Oral Health: Teens

Common Problems

Crooked Teeth

Your smile is one of the most important reflections of your individual personality. Better looking teeth can restore self-confidence and improve overall well-being. Unfortunately many people who, because of crooked teeth or misaligned jaws, feel unattractive and suppress the natural urge to smile. Apart from appearance, crooked teeth are more difficult to clean and people with crooked teeth tend to have more cavities and gum problems. In some cases, teeth that do not fit together correctly can suffer from the forces of biting and may lead to gum problems or shifting of the jaw. Puberty and teenage are the best times to correct mal-aligned or crooked teeth. At an orthodontic consultation, our dentist will evaluate your problem and explain the details of the treatment required.

Teeth Whitening

If you wish to have a brighter smile, then teeth whitening may be an option for you. Ask our dentist for help as they can provide more effective teeth whitening treatments than the ‘do-it-yourself’ kits available at pharmacies. Before having your teeth whitened, your dentist will check to make sure your teeth are suitable to be treated. In some cases treatment may be difficult or ineffective, for example with staining caused during tooth formation by certain antibiotics. Teeth whitening may make your old fillings or crowns look darker after treatment, so it is very important to be checked and advised of this.

Mouth-guards

Mouth-guards are soft, rubbery devices customized to fit over your teeth and prevent broken teeth, chips or injuries to the lips. They shield the teeth in an impact situation by providing a cushion which gives protection when the jaws are driven hard together. A good mouth-guard should be of sufficient thickness in the correct areas, resilient, well retained, comfortable, and should not interfere with speaking and breathing. If you play sports like hockey or roller-blading, it is prudent to protect your teeth with mouth guards.

Knocked Out Teeth

When accidents happen, teeth can sometimes be knocked out completely. Sometimes, they can be put back in by a dentist. Follow these injury management tips to reduce the likelihood of any long-term damage. First make sure that the injured person does not show any signs of head injury, unconsciousness, nausea, persistent headaches, or any other warning signs of a serious injury. Once this is ruled out, see a dentist as quickly as possible. The sooner the tooth or teeth is replanted in its socket, the greater the chance of retaining it for life.

Steps to follow:

  1. Find the tooth and hold it by the smooth white part that is usually visible in the mouth – the crown NOT root
  2. Do not scrub or rinse the tooth in anything except water or milk
  3. If the tooth is clean, hold it by the crown, making sure it’s the right way round, gently push it into its socket
  4. If it is dirty, rinse it in milk, or for not more than 1-2 second in cold water, gently push it back into its socket
  5. Hold the tooth in place by biting on a piece of cloth and go to a dentist immediately

If you are not comfortable putting the tooth back in:

  1. Do not let the tooth become dry and do not place it in disinfectant
  2. Either place it in a cup of milk or if milk is not available, keep it in the mouth between the cheeks and gums
  3. Go to the dentist immediately

This advice is only for managing knocked-out permanent teeth. If a baby tooth is knocked out, do not try to put it back in its socket, as this may damage the unerupted permanent tooth. Always seek advice and treatment from a dentist.

Erosion

Erosion is the loss of the surface of the tooth, especially enamel that is caused by acid attack. This is different from bacterial acid attack that we call tooth decay. Enamel is the hard outer surface of the tooth seen when we smile and it protects the sensitive dentine underneath. Erosion of the enamel can lead to exposure of the dentine, which may lead to pain and sensitivity with cold foods and drinks.

  4. If you eat or drink anything acidic, wait for about one hour before brushing your teeth. Brushing straight after acidic foods and drinks may cause even more enamel damage.
Oral Piercing

Many who consider oral piercing do not realise the side effects that could occur to them. Health problems can arise from the procedure and the long term use of the jewellery. The wound created by piercing can increase your risk of oral infections, damage to your gums and teeth, bleeding, and can even increase your risk for the transmission of certain diseases. There is also a chance that the oral bacteria can enter the blood stream through the wound created during the procedure and can increase the risk for developing endocarditis in people who have underlying heart problems.

People with oral piercings, especially tongue piercings have greater risk of developing gum disease than others without oral piercings. Constant rubbing of the metal studs against the gums and teeth can cause gums to recede or chip the teeth. They can damage old fillings and can cause difficulty eating and speaking clearly.Express yourself with a healthy smile and not by the jewellery in your mouth.

Smoking

Smoking is bad for your health including oral health. It is easy to see the effects of smoking on your teeth. It causes tooth staining, persistent bad breath, reduced sense of taste and smell, accumulation of calculus (tartar), gum disease, tooth loss and in severe cases oral cancer.

Smoking reduces blood flow to the gums, depriving them of oxygen and nutrients that allow gums to stay healthy, and leaving them vulnerable to bacterial infection. Smokers also exhibit delayed healing after dental procedures. Smokers are more likely to develop gum disease than non-smokers and gum disease is the most common causes of tooth loss in adults. Smoking can also increase your risk of developing mouth and throat cancer, lung cancer, mouth sores or lesion that do not heal, heart disease and/or stroke, and chronic bronchitis. It is good not to start smoking in the first instance. If you smoke, then consider quitting

Oral Health: Children

Information

Oral Hygiene

Regular brushing helps remove the sticky film of bacteria, called plaque. If not cleaned thoroughly the bacteria in plaque can break down tooth enamel, which can cause cavities and gum disease. As your child gets older, they might want to brush their own teeth. It is important that you teach them the right way and assist your child until they are 8 or 9 years old.

  1. Once your child is 6 years old start using a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste.
  2. Make sure your child is not eating or swallowing toothpaste.
  3. Encourage them to spit the toothpaste out after brushing and not to rinse the mouth.
  4. Brush twice a day, morning and night, for 2 minutes and brushing last thing at night time before bed is very important.
  5. Hold the brush at 45 degree angle to the gum line and brush gently by moving the brush back and forth in short, tooth-wide strokes.
  6. Make sure the child is brushing the outer, inner and chewing surfaces of all the teeth in upper and lower jaws.
  7. Check your child’s brush regularly and replace it every 3 months or soon after the bristles start to wear out.
Nutrition & Snacking
  1. Families should remember that snacking in small amounts at regular intervals, and in addition to 3 meals, is important to ensure the child’s energy and nutrient requirements are met. However, frequent intake of sugary foods or drinks leads to frequent acid attacks and eventual loss of tooth enamel. Hence, it is important snack choices for young children are nutritious, non-sticky and low in sugar.
  2. Food and Nutrition Guidelines for Healthy Children (ages 2-12 years old) without the addition of extra sugar, fat or salt:
  3. Breads and Cereals: Breads including whole wheat breads; crackers; rolls; toast; muffins, and loaves made with minimal amounts of sugar; and unsweetened dry cereals.
  4. Fruits and Vegetables: Raw vegetable and fruit pieces; grated vegetables and salads; vegetable juices; fresh or unsweetened, frozen or canned fruit (in own juices).
  5. Milk and Milk Products: Milk; yoghurt without added sugar; cheese; yoghurt or cottage cheese dips; cheese spreads.
  6. Meat, seafood, chicken: Hard-cooked egg; cheese; pieces of lean meat or and chicken; tuna or salmon; peanut butter and other spreads made from pureed nuts, seeds and legumes.
Fissure Sealants

Sealants are a protective plastic coating applied to back teeth to prevent decay. The chewing surfaces of back teeth have small grooves or fissures which often extend right down into the tooth itself. These fissures are very difficult to clean thoroughly and can trap food particles. Fissure sealants can seal off these grooves, preventing any food particles or bacteria from getting in.

It is best to get advice from your dentist if your child would benefit from fissure sealing the permanent back molar teeth. The first molars usually come through between 6-7 years old. If required the rest of the molars are usually sealed as soon as they appear which can be any time between 11-14 years old.

Common Problems

Sports Injury

Sports injuries can be minimized by proper prevention and adequate preparation. As your child gets older, they will start to get involved in various sporting activities. A good and effective way to protect your child’s teeth is to wear a properly fitted, custom-made mouth-guard. A good mouth-guard should be of sufficient thickness in the correct areas, resilient, well retained, comfortable, and should not interfere with speaking and breathing. Always wear a mouth-guard when playing contact sports.

Knocked Out Teeth

When accidents happen, teeth can sometimes be knocked out completely. Sometimes, they can be put back in by a dentist. Follow these injury management tips to reduce the likelihood of any long-term damage. First make sure that the injured person does not show any signs of head injury, unconsciousness, nausea, persistent headaches, or any other warning signs of a serious injury. Once this is ruled out, see a dentist as quickly as possible. The sooner the tooth or teeth is replanted in its socket, the greater the chance of retaining it for life.

Steps to follow:

  1. Find the tooth and hold it by the smooth white part that is usually visible in the mouth – the crown NOT root.
  2. Do not scrub or rinse the tooth in anything except water or milk.
  3. If the tooth is clean, hold it by the crown, making sure it is the right way round, gently push it into its socket.
  4. If it is dirty, rinse it in milk, or for not more than 1-2 second in cold water, gently push it back into its socket.
  5. Hold the tooth in place by biting on a piece of cloth and go to a dentist immediately.

If you are not comfortable putting the tooth back in:

  1. Do not let the tooth become dry and do not place it in disinfectant.
  2. Either place it in a cup of milk or if milk is not available, keep it in the mouth between the cheeks and gums.
  3. Go to the dentist immediately.

This advice is only for managing knocked-out permanent teeth. If a baby tooth is knocked out, do not try to put it back in its socket, as this may damage the unerupted permanent tooth. Always seek advice and treatment from a dentist.

Mixed Dentition

This is the period when the baby teeth begin to fall out and permanent teeth start to come through. During this period the jaws grow to make room for the permanent teeth and the roots of the baby teeth begin to be absorbed by the tissue around them. At the same time the permanent teeth under them prepare to come through. When a baby tooth is lost early before the permanent tooth beneath that is ready to erupt, the nearby tooth may move into that space. This will later make the permanent tooth to erupt out of its position, creating crooked or crowded teeth. When a baby tooth does not fall out when it should, it is good to remove them as this may also make the permanent tooth to erupt out of its position. Your dentist can advise you in this.

The first permanent molars usually erupt between 6-7 years old and they do not replace any baby teeth. This erupts at the space next to the back baby teeth. While the first permanent molar should not be mistaken for baby teeth, the last set of baby teeth is lost only around 12 years old. To avoid future problems with permanent teeth, ensure that you follow effective home care routine and limit the frequency and amount of sugary food and drink intake.

Oral Health: Infant & Toddlers

Your child depends on you for healthy baby teeth. These teeth are important as healthy teeth look good, help your child eat well and are important for speech. They also help retain space for the eruption of the permanent teeth which helps prevent crowding. The baby or milk teeth are essential for good growth and development of your child. Good oral health from an early age will help them keep their teeth for a lifetime.

Infants

Oral Hygiene
  1. Start brushing as soon as the first baby tooth comes through the gums. This includes cleaning the teeth after meals.
  2. Buy a soft, small-headed brush and make sure that you only use a smear of fluoride toothpaste.
  3. Have your infant sit on your lap, both facing the same direction, so that you can get easy access to his or her mouth.
Feeding
  1. Breast milk is recognised as the best form of nutrition for infants. 
  2. If a bottle is used always hold the baby while bottle-feeding and do not put the baby to bed with a bottle.
  3. What you put in the bottle is very important for your child’s oral health. Use only expressed breast milk or formula for bottle-feeding.
  4. Do not put fruit juices or any other sweetened drinks in your baby’s bottle. The sugar in the drinks can damage your child’s baby teeth and cause early decay.
  5. Babies should not be left to fall asleep with a bottle of milk or juice as this can lead to rampant decay called “baby-bottle decay".
  6. If you are using a pacifier to calm or soothe your child do not dip them in sugar or honey. Discontinue the use of pacifier by 2 years of age.

Toddlers

Oral Hygiene
  1. Adults should position themselves behind a seated or standing toddler, both facing the mirror, reach around to brush the toddler’s teeth.
  2. Use a smear of fluoride toothpaste on a soft, small-headed toothbrush.
  3. Brush twice a day, morning and night, for 2 minutes and brushing at night before bed is very important.
  4. Encourage your child to spit the toothpaste out after brushing and not rinse the mouth.
  5. Hold the brush at 45 degree angle to the gum line and brush gently by moving the brush back and forth in short, tooth-wide strokes.
  6. Make sure you brush the outer, inner and chewing surfaces of all the teeth in upper and lower jaws.
  7. Check your child’s brush regularly and replace it every 3 months or soon after the bristles start to wear out.
Nutrition
  1. Frequent consumption of high sugar containing foods and drinks can contribute to tooth decay.
  2. Reduce the frequency and amount of sugar intake by selecting healthy nutritious snacks such as fruit pieces, cheese, chopped vegetables and sandwiches
  3. Avoid eating sugary foods in between meals. If your child eats sweet sticky foods, they are best eaten at mealtimes rather than between meals
  4. Acidic and sugary drinks including fruit drinks, fruit juices, cordials, soft drinks and sport drinks are not recommended for infants and toddlers.

Common Problems

Teething

This is the time when a baby’s first few teeth begin to come through the gums. When the teeth break through the surface the gums may swell and become tender. Teething is easy to spot as your child may become restless or cry constantly. This may also be associated with disrupted sleep and eating habits, cheek redness, drooling and chewing or biting on their toys. But it is not usually associated with an increase in temperature. You can help your child by applying cold cloth wrapped in ice cubes and by using safe teething rings. You can also try using teething gels before feeds to relief pain.

Pacifier or Thumb Sucking

Many parents choose to have their infant suck a pacifier or dummy to calm them. Some children may also suck their thumb or finger. The effects of these habits on teeth are minor if used for a limited period of time, but if used for a long time it may cause problems in the way the teeth develop. Discontinue the use of a pacifier by 2 years of age and never dip the pacifier in sugar, honey or other sweetened drinks.

Early Childhood Caries

Early childhood caries (ECC) is the form of dental caries that affects the teeth of infants and young children and has been identified as an important health problem that affects the growth, development and quality of life of many preschool children and impacts on the family as a whole. ECC is caused by long and frequent exposure of a child’s teeth to sugar.

Teeth are at risk of dental caries from the time they start to appear in the mouth and therefore children from 6 months old onwards are at risk of developing ECC. Severe form of ECC develops very quickly and teeth may be destroyed within 6 months of its onset.

ECC can be prevented by brushing the baby teeth with a toothpaste containing fluoride as soon as the first tooth starts to come through the gums. It is also good to clean the gum areas that remain toothless. If a bottle is used for feeding, always hold the baby while feeding and do not put the baby to bed with a bottle. Discontinue the use of bottle by 12 months of age. Avoid giving sweet drinks such as fruit drinks, fruit juices and other sweetened drinks to your child.

Lift the Lip

Early identification of this caries can help prevent or stop the progression of this disease. Parents should lift their child’s lip regularly to check for signs of tooth decay.

Stage 1: Healthy teeth and gums
Stage 2: Chalky, white spots or lines on the tooth near the gum line. This could mean start of tooth decay. Take your child to a school /community dental clinic as soon as possible.
Stage 3: Yellow / brownish discolouration or cavities. Visit a dental clinic immediately
Stage 4: Well advanced decay or loss of tooth structure. Visit a dental clinic immediately

Oral Surgery: Pre & Post-Surgery Care

Pre Surgery

Depending on your medical/dental condition and your level of anxiety/comfort level, oral surgery can be done under local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia.

Before undergoing surgery, please note:

  1. Effect of anesthesia varies from one patient to another, depending on the patient’s medical condition and metabolism
  2. Expect some discomfort/swelling for the first 3 days; in most cases, discomfort will start to go away after the 3rd day
  3. You can go home on the same day except if you are going through general anesthesia

If the surgery is performed under sedation, please note:

  1. Fasting (no eating and no drinking) 4 hours before the procedure
  2. Have someone accompany you to the clinic so that he/she can bring you home after the procedure as you may experience slight dizziness or weakness in your legs
  3. Do not drive on that day

At the end of the surgery, our front desk staff will provide instructions on medication to be taken (if any) and provide assistance as needed. If a follow up visit is required, our front desk staff will arrange an appointment for you based on your availability.

Post-Surgery

  1. You may experience some swelling, pain, bleeding, discomfort and tightness of jaw muscles during the first few days.
  2. Slight oozing of blood is normal. If significant bleeding occurs, place a gauze or cotton pad over the bleeding site and apply pressure by biting down firmly for 15-20 minutes. This may need to be repeated.
  3. If bleeding is excessive and uncontrolled by pressure, contact your dentist immediately.
  4. To minimise swelling, an ice pack (small bag of frozen peas wrapped in a cloth) may be held on the side of the face. Apply 10-15 minutes every hour on the day of surgery.
  5. Keep all wounds clean.
  6. Rinse your mouth gently 6-8 times a day with warm, salty water (1/4 teaspoon of salt in a cup of water). Very vigorous rinsing in the first 24 hours should be avoided as this will disturb the blood clot.
  7. Frequent gauze change or mouth rinsing disrupts the blood clotting process and promotes bleeding. If necessary, change pressure gauze pack at 30 minutes intervals.
  8. Brush your teeth including those around the wound. Food remnants and plaque delay healing.
  9. Take the prescribed medication to ensure a smooth post-surgery recovery. If you develop a rash or other complication after taking the prescribed medication, please stop the medication and call the clinic.
  10. One day after surgery, the surgical site should be cleansed by rinsing the mouth gently with antiseptic mouthwash or with warm salt water after meals and before going to bed. This will help reduce the risk of infection.
  11. Drink plenty of cold or warm fluid and eat soft food on the un-operated side for a few days following your surgery.
  12. Avoid hot drinks, hot, spicy or hard food, alcohol, stimulants (e.g. caffeine), vigorous physical effort and playing with the wound.
  13. Avoid smoking as this delays healing.
  14. Drink directly from the cup. Do not use a straw.
  15. Attend all post-surgery appointments that you have been given.





New Patients – What to Expect During Your First Visit

Your Dental Appointment

Make an appointment prior to your visit via our e-appointment form or call our appointment hotline +65 6336 6222. We suggest that patients arrive 15 minutes earlier to register. Please bring along your IC/passport to your appointment. You will need to fill in the registration form with your personal particulars and medical history (e.g. drug allergies) for our records. All the information provided is kept confidential.

Consultation with our Dentist

Our dental nurse will lead you to the treatment room to meet our dentist. Our dentist will recommend the best treatment options for your dental condition after the diagnosis. If you are comfortable with the proposed treatment plan, depending on the procedure involved, most treatments can be started at the same visit.

Taking of Digital Radiographs (x-rays)

If this is your first time visiting the clinic, we usually recommend that you have an x-ray taken to enable a thorough and detailed diagnosis. An x-ray offers approximately 60% more information when compared with visual inspection and shows the overall teeth and gum structure which may not be seen with oral examination alone. This will assist our dentist in providing the best possible treatment options for you, based on your current dental condition.

If you have an x-ray taken less than 6 months ago, bring it along with you to the dental appointment. Do note that your clinical condition may change with time and a new radiograph may be needed if a long period of time has elapsed since your last x-ray. For female patients who are pregnant, please inform the front desk and dental nurse about your condition.





Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is the least expensive cosmetic dental restoration whereby composite resin is applied to a tooth surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened and polished for an ideal smile. It is used to fill in gaps, restore chipped, cracked or stained teeth, or as tooth colored filling for small cavities. Composite bonding is also suitable for patients who have teeth with dark stains that do not respond to whitening.

Composite bonding can usually be done in 1 visit by our dentist and the procedure usually takes about 10-25 minutes to complete a tooth. There is no downtime or side effects for composite bonding and the results may last for several years. Composite bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than veneers and may need to be replaced or resurfaced if it gets discolored after 5-6 years. For larger restorations, bonding may not be suitable and veneers or crowns may be needed.




Veneers/Laminates

Veneers or laminates are custom-made shell-like ceramic porcelain placed on teeth surfaces to give you a radiant and natural looking smile. Veneers are effective alternatives to crowns, bridges and implants. They provide strong and durable aesthetic solutions for those who with chipped, discolored, gapped or uneven teeth. They have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding, and highly resist permanent staining from coffee, tea or tobacco use. Veneers last about 10-15 years, after which they will need to be replaced.

Veneers are typically fitted over the course of 2 visits. During the 1st visit, our dentist will examine your teeth to determine if veneers are the appropriate solution for you. This is essential as veneers are not appropriate for all teeth (e.g. people who grind their teeth or have unhealthy teeth with extensive decay and a weak structure are unsuitable for veneers). During tooth preparation, a local anesthetic may be given to ensure the treatment is painless. In order to place the veneer on the tooth, some enamel may be removed from the tooth surface to ensure that the veneer can be bonded to the tooth without looking too bulky. The tooth shape is modified and an impression is taken of the tooth.You may be given temporary veneer while the tooth impression is sent to the laboratory for veneer fabrication. At the final “bonding” visit, the veneer is checked for fit and color before being permanently bonded to the tooth using special light activated adhesives.





Teeth Whitening

If you are looking for a teeth whitening procedure in Singapore, you have come to the right place..

Teeth whitening procedure can remove organic stains or intrinsic tooth discoloration caused by consumption of tea, coffee, red wine, tobacco use and even tetracycline stains. At Unity Denticare, our dentist can provide more effective teeth whitening treatments than the “do-it-yourself” kits available at pharmacies. There are two types of whitening procedures which you can choose from, an in-office whitening procedure which is done by the dentist at the clinic or if you have limited time to spend at the dental clinic, you can also use our take-home whitening kit and do the procedure at the comfort of your own home.

During your initial consultation, our dentist will do a thorough dental examination to ensure both your teeth and gum tissues are healthy and acceptable for treatment. Existing dental problems such as tooth decay or gum disease can negatively affect the results of our teeth whitening treatment, as the procedure may cause old fillings or crowns to look darker. Hence, if you have dental issues, it is thus advisable to delay your teeth whitening treatment.
