We offer general dental check-ups, diagnosis, consultation and in-depth discussion of treatment plans for each of our patients. Our clinic also possesses up-to-date digital x-ray facilities.According to the ministry of health, it is very important to have your six-monthly check-ups done to maintain optimal health for your teeth and gums. During your check-ups, your dentist will also scale and polish your teeth. This is also known commonly as 'cleaning'. Scaling removes dental plaque and tartar, (plaque is a soft, sticky film that builds up on your teeth. If plaque on teeth aren't removed through daily brushing and flossing, they will harden to become tartar) that can cause tooth decay, bleeding gums, bad breath and gum diseases. Thus, scaling is a essential process in keeping our teeth and gums healthy. Polishing removes stains caused by food and drinks like coffee and tea and give your pearlies a pearly white smile!

During your visit for preventive care your dentist may recommend the application of topical fluoride. Fluoride is important for prevention of tooth decay. It is estimated that water fluoridation reduces tooth decay by 20-40%. When ingested it is incorporated into the structure of the developing teeth, and it prevents the acid produced by the bacteria in plaque from dissolving tooth enamel. It also helps to repair the early stages of tooth decay even before the decay becomes visible.
