All-porcelain crowns, veneers, laminates, onlays, and inlays from the IPS design system are some of the most sought after restorations today. This is because IPS uses a special design and manufacturing system that gives it an advantage over other systems. It is well-known for its unique technologies such as the e.max Ceram, a layering material that adds an esthetic look to their products and a special Lithium Disilicate material that makes the crowns and veneers not only pleasant to look at but also strong. IPS also uses a special Shade Determination system that allows patients and dentists to choose the correct tooth shade to make the restoration look more natural.

Anaesthesia

Dental anaesthesia is an important part of any dental treatment as it affects the entire experience of the patient. Anesthetics are medications that are used to numb the body during certain dental procedures. Local anaesthesia is used to numb specific areas and provide limited and localized loss of sensation, while general anaesthesia is used to cause a complete loss of pain sensation all over the body. Local anesthetics are more commonly used in fillings, wisdom tooth extractions, and root canals, among others. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers all types of anesthetics and closely discusses all available options to find the one that is most suitable for your needs.

Bleaching Pola Office

Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Pola Office is a type of an in-office dental bleaching system, known to be one of the fastest in-office bleaching systems in the world. The bleaching procedure usually takes around 30 minutes to complete and does not require a special bleaching light. However, the use of a heat-emitting curing light accelerates the bleaching process. Pola Office also has a built-in desensitiser (potassium nitrate), which blocks the transmission of sensitive nerve impulses. The procedure is very straightforward, in the sense that the dentist only needs to apply a thin layer of bleach and use a curing light to accelerate the bleaching process.

Bone Graft
est. $ 682
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Bone Grafting is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the capacity of the patient’s jawbone to hold dental implants. When the patient has gone too long without teeth (anchored in the tooth sockets), the jawbone begins to atrophy, leaving behind a flat hoop of bone in the lower jaw. The bone grafting procedure is designed to prepare the jawbone to hold implants. For the procedure, the surgeon can choose to use bone harvested from the patient’s own body, or use processed bone implants from animal donors. Surgeons typically recommend processed bone, which will go through guided tissue regeneration to ensure that the graft will not be rejected by the patient’s body. The procedure can be performed with different techniques, which could dictate the amount of recovery time for the patient.

Ceramic or Tooth-Colored Braces
est. $ 1365
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Ceramic braces operate under the same principle as traditional wire braces; however, the most noted difference is the use of ceramic brackets instead of the traditional metal ones. The installation procedure for ceramic braces takes around one to two hours, depending if the patient needs braces for the upper and lower teeth. The procedure will begin with a thorough cleaning of the patient’s teeth, and then the installation of the ceramic braces. The ceramic braces are attached to the patient’s teeth and connected by a special dental wire that hardens when warmed, and softens (thus easing the pressure) when exposed to cold temperatures. Depending on the severity of the case, the patient may need to wear the ceramic braces for several months to a year.

Complete Dentures
est. $ 195
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Complete dentures are recommended for patients who are looking for a cost-effective solution for missing teeth and for those who do not have any teeth left either on the upper or lower jaw. The process of getting a complete denture starts with an initial appointment with the dentist where details of the procedure will be discussed as well as the expectations of the patient. If there are remaining teeth but are too decayed to be saved even by a root canal, the dentist will perform a tooth extraction first. During this time, the dentist can also take a mould of the patient’s gums to create dentures that will fit and function perfectly. The patient will also be made to wear immediate (or temporary) dentures to prevent bone loss in the jaw and receding of the gum. After the gums are completely healed, the dentist can allow the patient to wear the conventional dentures and adjust the dental prosthesis to fit perfectly.

Complicated Tooth Extraction
est. $ 48
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Complicated tooth extraction is typically performed on teeth that are not easily accessed or those found at the back of the mouth. A complicated tooth extraction is usually a surgical procedure that requires the oral surgeon to make an incision in the gum line. After the incision has been made, the surgeon will lift the flaps of soft tissues and remove the tooth by breaking it down into smaller, easily extractable pieces, or through accessing the deeper recesses of the gums to remove the tooth in one piece. Depending on the size of the incision and the tooth socket, the gums may need to be sutured closed. A general anaesthetic is typically used for complicated extractions, and the patient will need to refrain from eating hard, solid foods and gargling forcefully for several days after the procedure.

Consultation
est. $ 15
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers consultation for patients to determine whether they are good candidates for orthodontics and identify what kind of solution is most appropriate for their case. During an orthodontic consultation, the orthodontist will discuss the different options the patient has, if any teeth need to be removed during the treatment process, the types of appliances that will be used, and how long the whole treatment will take. To get the most out of your orthodontic consultation, feel free to ask your attending dentist any questions you may have, especially with regards to cost. It is also your chance to get to know your dentist and see if you will be comfortable working closely with him/her all throughout the treatment period.

Dental Implants
est. $ 1267
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Dental Implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures or other dental prostheses, dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The process of getting implants can take anywhere from four to eight months, depending on the number of procedures that will be required. For instance, patients who do not have enough bone material to hold the implants will need to undergo bone grafting that can easily take six weeks to three months. During the procedure, a root implant, made of either titanium or ceramic, will be surgically placed into the empty tooth socket. It will take several weeks for the gums to heal and for the bone to meld naturally with the implant. Following this procedure, the dentist will attach an abutment and artificial tooth, which could be a dental bridge or crown.

Desensitisation
est. $ 9
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Are you suffering from sensitive teeth? Dentists nowadays provide medications and treatments specifically for the treatment of teeth sensitivity, which is a condition caused by the exposure of the dentin, which is a very soft layer under the gums. This layer consists of the tooth root that is connected to the nerve of the tooth by some tubes. Once exposed to something cold or hot, the tubes immediately send signals to the nerve, which causes a painful sensation. Regular cleaning can sometimes help resolve sensitivity, and so can over-the-counter toothpaste that are designed for sensitive teeth. But if other remedies don’t work, patients can seek special desensitisation treatments that dentists can provide in just a few minutes, with effects lasting for a long time. This procedure is easily available and is very affordable at BrightSmile Avenue Dental.

Filling (Amalgam)
est. $ 7
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are dental restoration materials used to fill or seal holes that are typically caused by tooth decay. Amalgam is one of the earliest materials used in dental fillings. In fact, dentists around the world have been using them for over 150 years. Amalgam has a silver appearance, but it is actually a mixture of metals, which are powdered alloy (silver, tin, copper) and liquid (elemental) mercury. The mercury is used as a binding agent and contributes to the strength of amalgam. In addition to its strength, amalgam fillings are also very popular because they are the most affordable type of filling.

Filling (Composite)
est. $ 15
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Composite fillings are dental materials made of a combination of tiny glass particles mixed in with resin and used to fill in small tooth cavities. Composite fillings are coloured similarly to natural teeth, making them an ideal filling material for teeth that can easily be seen when the patient smiles or opens his or her mouth. For the procedure, the dentist will first prepare the patient’s teeth by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the cavities that need to be filled. The composite fillings will then be placed in these cavities in layers, with the dentist exposing the fillings to a special light to harden and set them. When the cavities are filled, the dentist will smoothen and file down the fillings to fit the tooth perfectly.

Fluoride Treatment (Upper and Lower)
est. $ 7
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Fluoride treatment or therapy involves the delivery of fluoride to the patient’s teeth as a preventative measure. Research shows that fluoride can protect one’s teeth from cavities, also known as dental caries, by incorporating fluorapatite directly on the patient’s teeth enamel. Fluoride can be delivered in two ways: systemic or topical. For systemic fluoride treatments, the patient will need to ingest the fluoride through tablets, drops, lozenges, or additive (powder or liquid) materials to water, milk, or salt. When the patient drinks fluoridated water, the dentist will not prescribe a systemic fluoride treatment. On the other hand, topical fluoride treatments involve procedures that directly apply fluoride to the tooth surface, and the fluoride can be delivered in the form of toothpaste, gel, mouth rinse, or varnish.

Intra-Oral X-Rays
est. $ 7
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Intraoral x-rays are dental imaging procedures that are performed to identify various conditions that affect the teeth and gums and subsequently, to formulate a guided, effective treatment plan. There are three different kinds of intraoral X-rays, namely, bitewing, periapical, and occlusal x-rays. Bitewing x-rays allow the dentist to examine the upper and lower teeth in one region of the mouth. The x-ray films show the tooth crown and jawbone. This type of intraoral x-ray is used to determine if there are decaying and bone breakdown in the teeth. On the other hand, periapical x-rays are used to evaluate and analyse the whole tooth from the crown to the root. The procedure of taking dental x-rays is relatively quick and does not require any preparation. However, the patient is typically asked to make a second dental appointment where the results of the x-ray procedures are interpreted by the diagnosing dentist.

Invisalign
est. $ 3900
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

A more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional wire braces, Invisalign is a prosthetic device made out of a clear dental-grade plastic used to reposition and correct the alignment of the patient’s teeth. The whole Invisalign process begins with a consultation session with a qualified dental professional at BrightSmile Avenue Dental Clinic for assessment and evaluation of the current teeth positions. The dentist will then take images of the patient’s teeth, which will then be fed into a patented computer software that will create a series of aligners. These aligners will be worn by the patient one by one over a certain period of time, until the desired teeth position are achieved.

Lingual Braces
est. $ 2925
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Lingual braces, unlike traditional wire braces, provide patients with a more discreet way of correcting the alignment of their teeth. Although they also use metal wires and brackets, they are placed at the back of the teeth. The procedure begins with the orthodontist taking an impression of the patient’s teeth, which will be the basis for the customised metal brackets. The brackets will be installed on the patient’s second visit, and cemented directly on the back of the teeth. The wire will be installed after all the brackets are in place. The patient will be advised to stay away from sticky, crunchy, and hard foods, as well as carbonated and sugary drinks while the lingual braces are worn, but can generally return to normal activities several days after the procedure.

Night Guard
est. $ 97
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Night Guards, also known as Dental Mouth Guards, are devices that protect the teeth of individuals who have bruxism, a condition described as the grinding of teeth usually during the night. They are also recommended for patients who participate in contact sports. Night guards are made from a variety of materials and the dentist chooses the best one based on the degree of bruxism: heavy, moderate, mild, grinding and clenching, or daytime grinding. Mild grinding cases only require thin night guards, but moderate to heavy grinding requires thick night guards that are made from strong materials. Night guards, just like dental crowns and dentures, are customised for your teeth. The dentist will first take an impression of the teeth and forward this to a dental laboratory for fabrication. The night guard will then be fitted during your next dental visit.

Normal Extraction
est. $ 19
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are easily visible on the mouth such as the front teeth and canines. This type of extraction is typically performed under local anaesthesia (depending on the anxiety level of the patient, general anaesthesia or sedation can be used). The dentist will first examine the teeth, and then use specialised instruments to grasp and pull the teeth. The dentist will rock the tooth back and forth with dental forceps until the ligament connecting the tooth to the gums and socket is broken. After the procedure, the dentist will put a small wad of sterilised gauze on the empty tooth socket. Minor pain and discomfort following the procedure can be addressed by over the counter pain medication.

Oral Prophylaxis
est. $ 19
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Also known as deep tooth cleaning, oral Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment to maintain the health of the oral cavity and delay the progression of periodontal disease. It doesn’t need any anaesthetic unless a severe oral disease is suspected, or the patient becomes anxious during the treatment. Depending on the actual cleaning performed, it involves using scaling tools to scrape off tartar and plaque build-up, as well as planing teeth roots to get rid of bacteria. An anti-bacterial oral cream may be applied after the procedure to kill leftover harmful microorganisms. It lasts between 30 minutes and an hour with no downtime though there may be slight discomfort during and after the procedure.

Orthodontic Treatment
est. $ 1365
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Simple cases of orthodontic problems are those that require slight adjustments because of minor positioning issues. Examples are small gaps in between teeth. Such condition can be treated using orthodontic braces or Invisalign that can correct the problem in as little as four to six months with continuous monitoring and regular adjustments. Simple cases of orthodontics problems are typically resolved using the most straightforward and cost-effective solutions. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers affordable yet trustworthy orthodontics solutions for simple, predictable cases, helping both local and international patients restore their beautiful smile.

Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw Alignment)
est. $ 4875
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Orthognathic Surgery, also referred to as Corrective Jaw Surgery, is a term used to describe a variety of procedures to correct conditions such as gross jaw and facial skeletal discrepancies that are associated with sleep apnea, soft tissue discrepancies, airway defects, and temporomandibular joint pathology. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons who are working closely with an orthodontist perform this surgery. These types of procedures involve either the upper or lower jawbones, or both. The surgeon will need to make cuts in the bones to achieve the desired alignment. Since the procedures involve working on the skeletal system, the patient often requires the use of braces after the surgery.

Pit and Fissure Sealant
est. $ 9
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Dental sealants are typically applied to the fissures of the teeth to prevent the onset of tooth decay and root infection. This form of preventive dental treatment involves the use of a liquid plastic material that hardens as solid when applied to the fissures or chewing surfaces of the teeth. Sealants are usually applied on premolar and molar teeth at the back of the patient’s mouth, where high chewing forces gradually breaks down the crown of the teeth. These teeth at the back of the mouth are not adequately protected by fluoride and saliva, and thus need to be protected by sealants. In the procedure, the dentist thoroughly cleans all the target teeth before applying the sealants and then uses a specialised light to harden and set the material.

Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown (Ceramco)
est. $ 156
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Porcelain fused to metal crowns with Ceramco Metal are not very different from traditional porcelain fused to metal crowns; this type of crowns uses Ceramco Metal, a patented dental grade material that uses multiple layers of porcelain—reinforced by a metal frame—to mimic the appearance of natural teeth while still allowing for durability and strength. These crowns can be coloured or stained to perfectly match the patient’s natural teeth for aesthetically pleasing results. Porcelain fused to metal crowns can be used in restoring both the front and back teeth.

Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown (Ceramco/IPS Design)
est. $ 234
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Porcelain fused to metal crowns that use Ceramco Metal IPS Design are a great alternative for traditional porcelain fused to metal crowns. This dental prosthesis, which is attached to the top of the tooth to replace damaged crowns or address other kinds of dental problems, uses a special, patented material with multiple porcelain layers that mimic the appearance of real teeth. Porcelain crowns with Ceramco Metal IPS design are highly recommended on teeth that are easily seen when the patient smiles or opens the mouth as they are natural-looking.

Porcelain Fused to Metal Crown (Tilite)
est. $ 195
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Porcelain fused to metal crowns are partly made of a wide variety of metals, including Tilite, a specially developed titanium alloy that can be used in different dental applications. Tilite has many similar properties to porcelain, which makes it an ideal metal to fuse with porcelain. This titanium alloy has the same heat absorption qualities as porcelain, allowing the crown to be stronger and more durable. Installing Tilite porcelain fused to metal crowns requires two visits to the dental office. The tooth is examined and prepared during the first visit, with the crowns placed on the second visit.

Pulpectomy
est. $ 48
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

A Pulpectomy refers to a dental procedure that involves removing diseased pulp from the root of the tooth. The procedure is a part of a root canal treatment. In a pulpectomy, the dentist will first need to drill a hole in the crown of the tooth to expose the pulp. The pulp and nerves are then removed using special dental instruments. After removing the pulp, the inside of the tooth is cleaned thoroughly and filled with a resorbable material. The hole is then sealed with dental fillings. In some cases, the dentist uses a dental crown to restore the tooth’s appearance.

Retainers (Invisible)
est. $ 195
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Invisible retainers are typically made of a clear, dental grade plastic material used to discreetly retain the position of the teeth after orthodontic braces are removed. These are usually prescribed to adolescent and adult patients, as aligning children’s teeth can be more complex. These retainers are very similar to Invisalign aligners, but can be worn at night and removed during the day. These retainers prevent the upper and lower teeth from touching one another, making them an ideal retaining device for patients who are susceptible to teeth misalignment even after wearing orthodontic braces.

Retainers (With Wires)
est. $ 97
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

The traditional retainers with wires, also known as the Hawley retainer, are the most common of their kind. This type of retainer uses an acrylic plate arch that rests on the roof of the patient’s mouth, with labial wires holding the teeth’s position in place. In modern Hawley retainers, a transparent wire is used to make the retainers more discreet and to allow the patients to wear the retainers even during daytime. Hawley retainers with transparent wires are typically recommended to adolescent and adult patients.

Root Planing for Deep Cleaning of Plaque
est. $ 19
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Also known as Deep Cleaning or Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy, Deep Scaling and Planing is a procedure that involves the removal of plaque and calculus build-up on the teeth. When left untreated, these deposits can cause inflammation and infection in the gums and teeth. With this procedure, the dentist will use a wide variety of instruments, including an ultrasonic handpiece (that sprays water and delivers concentrated blows of air), curettes, and scalers. The ultrasonic handpiece will be used to loosen and remove larger pieces of plaque and calculus deposits. Once the larger deposits are removed, the dentist will switch to more precise tools (curettes and scalers) to remove smaller pieces in between the teeth, as well as near the gum line. The procedure is relatively painless, and the patient can resume normal activities right after the procedure.

Scaling and Polishing
est. $ 19
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Scaling is a dental procedure wherein the dentist uses special instruments to remove plaque from the teeth. Patients who have a significant amount of plaque will likely require a deep scaling procedure. This procedure not only involves removing plaque from the visible areas of the tooth, but also underneath the gums towards the tooth root. Since deep scaling can take up a significant amount of time to complete, the dentist may opt to perform the procedure by quadrants, or by halves, which means that you’ll need to return to the dental office multiple times. After a deep scaling procedure, it is recommended that you visit your dentist regularly for preventive maintenance check-ups.

Sedation (Anaesthesiologist Fee)
est. $ 292
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Sedation dentistry is a method of using sedatives to keep patients relaxed or asleep while dental procedures are ongoing. With many dental procedures causing a bit of pain and discomfort, many people tend to face anxiety or fear when going to the dentist for their much-needed procedures. This has caused the level of dental care to plummet, as more and more people avoid seeking dental care even when they need it. Through sedation dentistry, however, patients can now undergo painless dental procedures. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers minimal sedation (wherein the patient is awake but is in a relaxed state), as well as moderate or conscious sedation wherein the patient is half conscious but will not remember much of the procedure. Deep sedation as well as general anaesthesia, in which the patient is completely unconscious, are also available. Sedatives are usually administered either through inhalation, oral medications, or intravenous administration.

Sinus Lift
est. $ 1560
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure typically performed before a dental implant surgery to ensure that the upper jawbone can sufficiently hold the dental implant in place. Commonly performed by a periodontal or an oral surgeon, the procedure requires general anaesthesia. An incision will be made inside the mouth, right on or above the upper jaw. The surgeon will then gently pull back the gum tissue and make another incision to pull up the sinus floor further into the sinus cavity. A bone graft material will then be inserted. After this procedure, the patient will have to recover within three to six months before preparing for dental implant surgery.

Sleep Apnea/Snoring Device
est. $ 682
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Sleep apnea appliances are medical devices used to temporarily treat sleep apnea and are typically worn while sleeping. There are two general kinds of these appliances, namely, mouth guards (or dental appliances) and CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) appliances. Mouth guards have to be fitted by a qualified dental professional, and can include mandibular advancement devices (or MAD that advances the lower jaw gently) and tongue retaining devices (splints used to hold the tongue in place to ensure that the airways remain open). CPAP appliances, on the other hand, are small, quiet machines with three parts: a motor that blows air into the airways, a cannula that connects the motor to the third component, and the mask that fits over the nose and mouth.

Soft Tissue Grafting
est. $ 682
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Patients who are suffering from periodontal conditions or have receding gums can benefit from soft tissue grafts. This procedure involves harvesting donor tissue from different parts of the mouth and gums which are then transplanted to the donor site. This employs a wide variety of surgical techniques, depending on the donor site. Before starting the procedure, a qualified dental professional from BrightSmile Avenue Dental Clinic will first assess and evaluate the condition of the donor and recipient sites to determine what method or technique will work best. These include connective-tissue, free gingival, and pedicle grafts. Patients will be provided with specific postoperative care instructions following the procedure. Full recovery, meanwhile, takes about two weeks.

TMJ Treatment
est. $ 682
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

TMJ (TemporoMandibular Joint) therapy often involves conservative treatment procedures as many cases of TMJ problems are temporary and do not have lasting effects. To begin TMJ therapy, the patient must first consult with a qualified medical professional at BrightSmile Avenue Dental Clinic who will evaluate, assess, and determine the root cause of the symptoms. If the patient is suffering from minor symptoms, the doctor can recommend resting the jaw and using a combination of regular warm/cold compresses and painkillers. The patient may also be advised to stick to soft and liquid foods to allow the temporomandibular joint to heal. Splints or bite plates can also be a recommended form of therapy to ease the tension of muscles in the region. If conservative techniques do not work, a surgical procedure may be performed.

Temporary Filling
est. $ 9
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Temporary fillings, unlike other forms of dental fillings, are meant to use temporarily for a variety of reasons. A qualified dental professional can recommend the use of temporary fillings when a dental treatment procedure requires more than a single appointment, if the tooth to be treated needs to heal before additional procedures can be performed, or to cover the pulp and the tooth cavity during another kind of treatment procedure. Temporary fillings are made of a gray, white, or off-white material that can be easily removed in the follow-up appointment. Many dental professionals use temporary fillings with eugenol, a substance that contains pain-numbing ingredients that can address toothaches.

Wisdom Tooth Removal
est. $ 156
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Wisdom teeth are those that are commonly impacted or have not broken through the gum line or have grown sideward. These are removed through a surgical procedure. To begin the procedure, the dental professional will take X-rays or computerised images of the tooth to determine the angle of growth and how deep it is under the gum line. The procedure will be performed under conscious sedation, or local or general anaesthesia. After the area is numb, the surgeon or dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth. If the tooth cannot be pulled out in one piece, the surgeon or dentist will break it down into smaller pieces. Recovery from an impacted tooth extraction can take longer than a simple extraction, with the patient needing to take prescription pain medication and antibiotics to address pain, discomfort, and possible infections for about a week.

Zirconia Crown
est. $ 390
Contact Clinic
 Read more...Read less...

Zirconia crowns are made of zirconium, a strong and durable material that can withstand high chewing force and regular wear and tear. Aside from being a tough dental crown material, zirconium is also translucent and can effectively mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Zirconia crowns also do not employ metal fusing, making it safe and desirable for patients with metal allergies or want their crowns to be more aesthetically appealing. These zirconia crowns are recommended for use on the premolar or molar teeth, where the hardness of the material, as well as its strength and durability, can be used more efficiently.

Dental anaesthesia is an important part of any dental treatment as it affects the entire experience of the patient. Anesthetics are medications that are used to numb the body during certain dental procedures. Local anaesthesia is used to numb specific areas and provide limited and localized loss of sensation, while general anaesthesia is used to cause a complete loss of pain sensation all over the body. Local anesthetics are more commonly used in fillings, wisdom tooth extractions, and root canals, among others. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers all types of anesthetics and closely discusses all available options to find the one that is most suitable for your needs.

It is also your chance to get to know your dentist and see if you will be comfortable working closely with him/her all throughout the treatment period.

Desensitisation

Are you suffering from sensitive teeth? Dentists nowadays provide medications and treatments specifically for the treatment of teeth sensitivity, which is a condition caused by the exposure of the dentin, which is a very soft layer under the gums. This layer consists of the tooth root that is connected to the nerve of the tooth by some tubes. Once exposed to something cold or hot, the tubes immediately send signals to the nerve, which causes a painful sensation. Regular cleaning can sometimes help resolve sensitivity, and so can over-the-counter toothpaste that are designed for sensitive teeth. But if other remedies don’t work, patients can seek special desensitisation treatments that dentists can provide in just a few minutes, with effects lasting for a long time. This procedure is easily available and is very affordable at BrightSmile Avenue Dental.

An implant overdenture is a combination treatment that uses both dental implants and dentures. This is a removable denture option where the dentures are held in place by attaching them to dental implants. Implants, on the other hand, are titanium screw-like appliances that are implanted into the jawbone. Since they are fused to the bone, they prevent the dentures from moving or becoming loose, thus rewarding patients with more comfort and ease when talking and eating. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers a treatment package that comes with two dental implants in each jaw using only durable and trusted crowns from top brands Dio and Osstem.

Implant overdentures have picked up in popularity in recent times, thanks to the combined benefits of dental implants and dentures. Dentures have been the go-to treatment for replacing several missing teeth with a single dental solution, but dental patients have had to deal with its disadvantages, such as when the dentures come loose. Thus, keeping them in place with dental implants that are fused to the jawbone give them the stability they’ve always lacked. This has made the advent of implant overdentures one of the most useful advances in the field. At BrightSmile Avenue Dental, implant overdentures are offered in Tixus, 3I, or Straumann brands, with an affordable option of using just two implants placed in each jaw.

Implant overdentures are now widely considered as a better restorative solution than conventional dentures, which have become infamous for their tendency to move out of place, causing a lot of inconvenience for the wearer. Although the process of getting dental implants first significantly lengthens the amount of time it takes for the whole procedure to be completed, the stability and durability of overdentures make the whole process worth the wait. Once the implants are fused to the jawbone and the gums have closed over it, impressions of the patient’s mouth and gums will then be taken to start the fabrication of the dentures. This procedure is now available at BrightSmile Avenue Dental where 4 implants can be used in the 2 jaws to keep full jaw Dio or Osstem dentures in place.

Implant overdentures have raised a new standard in restorative care as they combine the great benefits that implants and dentures can offer in a single treatment. Overdentures are deemed more appropriate for cases where a long-term solution is necessary. It is also the ideal new answer to the problem that many denture wearers have been struggling with, which is that conventional dentures don’t stay in place. Attaching them to screw-like dental implants will eliminate most of the problems conventional dentures pose. With dentures stabilised by implants, patients are able to chew properly, maintain a better diet, and have more confidence and comfort when conversing with other people. This new solution is available at BrightSmile Avenue Dental, which offers it in a package containing four implants in 2 jaws with Tixus, 3i, and Straumann overdentures.

Dental implants with permanent crowns now offer an ideal solution to replace a row of missing or damaged teeth. This is an alternative to getting implant overdentures, with the main difference that individual crowns are attached to the implants instead of a whole denture tray. The permanent crowns used in this restoration option are designed to withstand wear and tear as they act as permanent replacement for natural teeth. These crowns can be made of all-metal, all-porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. At BrightSmile Avenue Dental, patients can get ten permanent crowns held in place by six implants in one jaw, and they can also choose among three different brands, namely Tixus, 3i, and Straumann crowns.

Getting dental implants with 20 permanent crowns is a great way to replace and restore a row of 20 missing or damaged teeth, or a full jaw. To get 20 permanent crowns, patients do not necessarily need to get 20 implants. Instead, dental bridges containing 20 permanent crowns can be used with as little as 12 implants properly positioned at strategic points to provide adequate support. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers 20 permanent crowns that are supported by 12 implants divided between the two jaws. High-quality and reliable Dio and Osstem brands are available to ensure the quality and longevity of the crowns.

Dental implants with 20 permanent crowns, also known as dental bridges, are now commonly used to restore several damaged teeth. It is ideal for patients who prefer a more stable and permanent or fixed alternative to conventional dentures or removable overdentures. The main advantage of an implant with permanent crowns is that there is no fear of having the restorations move out of place particularly when you're speaking or chewing. This is because the crowns are fixed into the gums, with the implants connecting them right to the bone under the gums. Although the process takes longer, they can stay in place for several years and will rarely require a replacement. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers a package consisting of 12 implants with 20 permanent crowns, which could be Tixus, 3i, or Straumann, depending on your preference.

Intraoral x-rays are dental imaging procedures that are performed to identify various conditions that affect the teeth and gums and subsequently, to formulate a guided, effective treatment plan. There are three different kinds of intraoral X-rays, namely, bitewing, periapical, and occlusal x-rays. Bitewing x-rays allow the dentist to examine the upper and lower teeth in one region of the mouth. The x-ray films show the tooth crown and jawbone. This type of intraoral x-ray is used to determine if there are decaying and bone breakdown in the teeth. On the other hand, periapical x-rays are used to evaluate and analyse the whole tooth from the crown to the root. The procedure of taking dental x-rays is relatively quick and does not require any preparation. However, the patient is typically asked to make a second dental appointment where the results of the x-ray procedures are interpreted by the diagnosing dentist.

Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are easily visible on the mouth such as the front teeth and canines. This type of extraction is typically performed under local anaesthesia (depending on the anxiety level of the patient, general anaesthesia or sedation can be used). The dentist will first examine the teeth, and then use specialised instruments to grasp and pull the teeth. The dentist will rock the tooth back and forth with dental forceps until the ligament connecting the tooth to the gums and socket is broken. After the procedure, the dentist will put a small wad of sterilised gauze on the empty tooth socket. Minor pain and discomfort following the procedure can be addressed by over the counter pain medication.

Orthognathic Surgery, also referred to as Corrective Jaw Surgery, is a term used to describe a variety of procedures to correct conditions such as gross jaw and facial skeletal discrepancies that are associated with sleep apnea, soft tissue discrepancies, airway defects, and temporomandibular joint pathology. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons who are working closely with an orthodontist perform this surgery. These types of procedures involve either the upper or lower jawbones, or both. The surgeon will need to make cuts in the bones to achieve the desired alignment. Since the procedures involve working on the skeletal system, the patient often requires the use of braces after the surgery.

A Pulpectomy refers to a dental procedure that involves removing diseased pulp from the root of the tooth. The procedure is a part of a root canal treatment. In a pulpectomy, the dentist will first need to drill a hole in the crown of the tooth to expose the pulp. The pulp and nerves are then removed using special dental instruments. After removing the pulp, the inside of the tooth is cleaned thoroughly and filled with a resorbable material. The hole is then sealed with dental fillings. In some cases, the dentist uses a dental crown to restore the tooth’s appearance.

Scaling is a dental procedure wherein the dentist uses special instruments to remove plaque from the teeth. Patients who have a significant amount of plaque will likely require a deep scaling procedure. This procedure not only involves removing plaque from the visible areas of the tooth, but also underneath the gums towards the tooth root. Since deep scaling can take up a significant amount of time to complete, the dentist may opt to perform the procedure by quadrants, or by halves, which means that you’ll need to return to the dental office multiple times. After a deep scaling procedure, it is recommended that you visit your dentist regularly for preventive maintenance check-ups.

Sedation dentistry is a method of using sedatives to keep patients relaxed or asleep while dental procedures are ongoing. With many dental procedures causing a bit of pain and discomfort, many people tend to face anxiety or fear when going to the dentist for their much-needed procedures. This has caused the level of dental care to plummet, as more and more people avoid seeking dental care even when they need it. Through sedation dentistry, however, patients can now undergo painless dental procedures. BrightSmile Avenue Dental offers minimal sedation (wherein the patient is awake but is in a relaxed state), as well as moderate or conscious sedation wherein the patient is half conscious but will not remember much of the procedure. Deep sedation as well as general anaesthesia, in which the patient is completely unconscious, are also available. Sedatives are usually administered either through inhalation, oral medications, or intravenous administration.

A sinus lift is a surgical procedure typically performed before a dental implant surgery to ensure that the upper jawbone can sufficiently hold the dental implant in place. Commonly performed by a periodontal or an oral surgeon, the procedure requires general anaesthesia. An incision will be made inside the mouth, right on or above the upper jaw. The surgeon will then gently pull back the gum tissue and make another incision to pull up the sinus floor further into the sinus cavity. A bone graft material will then be inserted. After this procedure, the patient will have to recover within three to six months before preparing for dental implant surgery.

Patients who are suffering from periodontal conditions or have receding gums can benefit from soft tissue grafts. This procedure involves harvesting donor tissue from different parts of the mouth and gums which are then transplanted to the donor site. This employs a wide variety of surgical techniques, depending on the donor site. Before starting the procedure, a qualified dental professional from BrightSmile Avenue Dental Clinic will first assess and evaluate the condition of the donor and recipient sites to determine what method or technique will work best. These include connective-tissue, free gingival, and pedicle grafts. Patients will be provided with specific postoperative care instructions following the procedure. Full recovery, meanwhile, takes about two weeks.

TMJ (TemporoMandibular Joint) therapy often involves conservative treatment procedures as many cases of TMJ problems are temporary and do not have lasting effects. To begin TMJ therapy, the patient must first consult with a qualified medical professional at BrightSmile Avenue Dental Clinic who will evaluate, assess, and determine the root cause of the symptoms. If the patient is suffering from minor symptoms, the doctor can recommend resting the jaw and using a combination of regular warm/cold compresses and painkillers. The patient may also be advised to stick to soft and liquid foods to allow the temporomandibular joint to heal. Splints or bite plates can also be a recommended form of therapy to ease the tension of muscles in the region. If conservative techniques do not work, a surgical procedure may be performed.

Wisdom teeth are those that are commonly impacted or have not broken through the gum line or have grown sideward. These are removed through a surgical procedure. To begin the procedure, the dental professional will take X-rays or computerised images of the tooth to determine the angle of growth and how deep it is under the gum line. The procedure will be performed under conscious sedation, or local or general anaesthesia. After the area is numb, the surgeon or dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth. If the tooth cannot be pulled out in one piece, the surgeon or dentist will break it down into smaller pieces. Recovery from an impacted tooth extraction can take longer than a simple extraction, with the patient needing to take prescription pain medication and antibiotics to address pain, discomfort, and possible infections for about a week.

 Read more...Read less...

Bone Grafting is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the capacity of the patient’s jawbone to hold dental implants. When the patient has gone too long without teeth (anchored in the tooth sockets), the jawbone begins to atrophy, leaving behind a flat hoop of bone in the lower jaw. The bone grafting procedure is designed to prepare the jawbone to hold implants. For the procedure, the surgeon can choose to use bone harvested from the patient’s own body, or use processed bone implants from animal donors. Surgeons typically recommend processed bone, which will go through guided tissue regeneration to ensure that the graft will not be rejected by the patient’s body. The procedure can be performed with different techniques, which could dictate the amount of recovery time for the patient.

Ceramic braces operate under the same principle as traditional wire braces; however, the most noted difference is the use of ceramic brackets instead of the traditional metal ones. The installation procedure for ceramic braces takes around one to two hours, depending if the patient needs braces for the upper and lower teeth. The procedure will begin with a thorough cleaning of the patient’s teeth, and then the installation of the ceramic braces. The ceramic braces are attached to the patient’s teeth and connected by a special dental wire that hardens when warmed, and softens (thus easing the pressure) when exposed to cold temperatures. Depending on the severity of the case, the patient may need to wear the ceramic braces for several months to a year.

Complete dentures are recommended for patients who are looking for a cost-effective solution for missing teeth and for those who do not have any teeth left either on the upper or lower jaw. The process of getting a complete denture starts with an initial appointment with the dentist where details of the procedure will be discussed as well as the expectations of the patient. If there are remaining teeth but are too decayed to be saved even by a root canal, the dentist will perform a tooth extraction first. During this time, the dentist can also take a mould of the patient’s gums to create dentures that will fit and function perfectly. The patient will also be made to wear immediate (or temporary) dentures to prevent bone loss in the jaw and receding of the gum. After the gums are completely healed, the dentist can allow the patient to wear the conventional dentures and adjust the dental prosthesis to fit perfectly.

Dental Implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures or other dental prostheses, dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The process of getting implants can take anywhere from four to eight months, depending on the number of procedures that will be required. For instance, patients who do not have enough bone material to hold the implants will need to undergo bone grafting that can easily take six weeks to three months. During the procedure, a root implant, made of either titanium or ceramic, will be surgically placed into the empty tooth socket. It will take several weeks for the gums to heal and for the bone to meld naturally with the implant. Following this procedure, the dentist will attach an abutment and artificial tooth, which could be a dental bridge or crown.

Amalgam fillings, also known as silver fillings, are dental restoration materials used to fill or seal holes that are typically caused by tooth decay. Amalgam is one of the earliest materials used in dental fillings. In fact, dentists around the world have been using them for over 150 years. Amalgam has a silver appearance, but it is actually a mixture of metals, which are powdered alloy (silver, tin, copper) and liquid (elemental) mercury. The mercury is used as a binding agent and contributes to the strength of amalgam. In addition to its strength, amalgam fillings are also very popular because they are the most affordable type of filling.

Composite fillings are dental materials made of a combination of tiny glass particles mixed in with resin and used to fill in small tooth cavities. Composite fillings are coloured similarly to natural teeth, making them an ideal filling material for teeth that can easily be seen when the patient smiles or opens his or her mouth. For the procedure, the dentist will first prepare the patient’s teeth by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the cavities that need to be filled. The composite fillings will then be placed in these cavities in layers, with the dentist exposing the fillings to a special light to harden and set them. When the cavities are filled, the dentist will smoothen and file down the fillings to fit the tooth perfectly.

Although they also use metal wires and brackets, they are placed at the back of the teeth. The procedure begins with the orthodontist taking an impression of the patient’s teeth, which will be the basis for the customised metal brackets. The brackets will be installed on the patient’s second visit, and cemented directly on the back of the teeth. The wire will be installed after all the brackets are in place. The patient will be advised to stay away from sticky, crunchy, and hard foods, as well as carbonated and sugary drinks while the lingual braces are worn, but can generally return to normal activities several days after the procedure.

They are also recommended for patients who participate in contact sports. Night guards are made from a variety of materials and the dentist chooses the best one based on the degree of bruxism: heavy, moderate, mild, grinding and clenching, or daytime grinding. Mild grinding cases only require thin night guards, but moderate to heavy grinding requires thick night guards that are made from strong materials. Night guards, just like dental crowns and dentures, are customised for your teeth. The dentist will first take an impression of the teeth and forward this to a dental laboratory for fabrication.

Dental sealants are typically applied to the fissures of the teeth to prevent the onset of tooth decay and root infection. This form of preventive dental treatment involves the use of a liquid plastic material that hardens as solid when applied to the fissures or chewing surfaces of the teeth. Sealants are usually applied on premolar and molar teeth at the back of the patient’s mouth, where high chewing forces gradually breaks down the crown of the teeth. These teeth at the back of the mouth are not adequately protected by fluoride and saliva, and thus need to be protected by sealants. In the procedure, the dentist thoroughly cleans all the target teeth before applying the sealants and then uses a specialised light to harden and set the material.

A qualified dental professional can recommend the use of temporary fillings when a dental treatment procedure requires more than a single appointment, if the tooth to be treated needs to heal before additional procedures can be performed, or to cover the pulp and the tooth cavity during another kind of treatment procedure. Temporary fillings are made of a gray, white, or off-white material that can be easily removed in the follow-up appointment. Many dental professionals use temporary fillings with eugenol, a substance that contains pain-numbing ingredients that can address toothaches.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are those that are commonly impacted or have not broken through the gum line or have grown sideward. These are removed through a surgical procedure. To begin the procedure, the dental professional will take X-rays or computerised images of the tooth to determine the angle of growth and how deep it is under the gum line. The procedure will be performed under conscious sedation, or local or general anaesthesia. After the area is numb, the surgeon or dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth. If the tooth cannot be pulled out in one piece, the surgeon or dentist will break it down into smaller pieces. Recovery from an impacted tooth extraction can take longer than a simple extraction, with the patient needing to take prescription pain medication and antibiotics to address pain, discomfort, and possible infections for about a week.

Zirconia crowns are made of zirconium, a strong and durable material that can withstand high chewing force and regular wear and tear. Aside from being a tough dental crown material, zirconium is also translucent and can effectively mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Zirconia crowns also do not employ metal fusing, making it safe and desirable for patients with metal allergies or want their crowns to be more aesthetically appealing. These zirconia crowns are recommended for use on the premolar or molar teeth, where the hardness of the material, as well as its strength and durability, can be used more efficiently.
