Frequently Asked Questions
Dental treatment is not expensive, for example simple scaling and simple filling does not cost you a lot, but Crowning and root canal treatment is quite expensive.
A healthy teeth does not need a root canal treatment unless it is severely damaged.
There are several causes. Firstly it is due to calculus around the teeth. Secondly, it is due to gum problem. Last but not least, due to carious tooth and pus accumulation.
For your information, calculus can not be removed by brushing. It can only be removed using professional dental scaling.
For the best practices, we recommend using ultra soft or soft type of toothbrush.
Please…NEVER wear FAKE BRACES!
Braces treatment have to have a proper treatment plan with OPG/ Lateral Cephalometric xray and dental cast before you start the braces treatment.

Dental implants are the ideal way to replace missing or weakened teeth. Most adult patients are good candidates for implants because they can help to prevent the remaining teeth from moving or loosening as a result.
Implants are permanent and serve as a good alternative to dentures for anyone with an otherwise healthy mouth and jaw.
A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant.
The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.
There are common causes of small ulcers:
Traumatic event that damage your gum
Stress induced ulcer
Hormonal changes (especially during pregnancy)
Genetic (some families get mouth ulcer more often)
Vitamin B12 or iron deficiency
Disease associated with mouth ulcer like Coeliac disease or Behcet’s disease
Most children begin losing their baby teeth between the ages of six and eight, and they typically fall out in roughly the same order in which they erupted. Keep in mind that all patients are different.
Studies show children can develop their first cavities by two years old. As suggested by the Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, children should meet the dentist for the first visit once their first tooth erupts – or, at the latest, their first birthday.
This helps your dentist catch potential problems that can affect the child’s overall health and well-being as more teeth erupt over time.
Patients with tooth sensitivity feel pain when they consume items that are hot or cold, sweet or acidic. This comes from thinned tooth enamel, which doesn’t protect the tooth pulp or dentin from exposure to extreme temperatures. In some patients, this may be a result of:
Tooth grinding during sleep
Chipped or fractured teeth
Orthodontics and fillings
