Full mouth Scaling and Prophylaxis(Teeth cleaning)
Scaling also referred to as cleaning in layman terms is the removal of tartar(calculus), a hard substance that attaches to the teeth when food debris are left on the teeth for long periods or in far to reach surfaces of the teeth.
Scaling should be done at least twice a year (every six months)
It involves removal of the hard substances from the teeth surfaces using a scaler machine and then polishing (prophylaxis) the surfaces to remove stains and to make them smooth for easy brushing
For children, prophylaxis and fluoride application is done every six months to to prevent tooth decay and gum disease
Dental caries (dental cavities) are ‘holes’ that occur in both milk and permanent teeth. They are caused acid produced when bacteria act on sugary foods on the teeth surface.
We can prevent dental caries by avoiding sugary diet and brushing our teeth regularly at least twice a day (morning and evening). Visiting a dentist twice a year helps in preventing cavities from forming and also by treating them early.
When cavities have already formed, different types of fillings are used to fill them depending on the age of the patient and the tooth surface affected.
Fillings are only possible for cavities that have not yet reached the pulp(life part) of the tooth.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is performed when dental caries has reached the pulp of the tooth and damaged the nerves or there is infection. It is also perform on teeth damaged by trauma (fractured teeth).
During a root canal treatment procedure, the nerves and pulp tissue are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. This is done to save the tooth by preventing infection of the ‘dead’ pulp tissue that leads to infection and dental abscesses.
Replacement of missing teeth:
There are a variety of options of replacing missing teeth depending on the number of teeth lost, the type of tooth lost(incisors, canines or molars) and the state of health of the remaining teeth in the mouth.
Dental bridges- Used to replace one or two missing teeth when the adjacent teeth are healthy enough to support the missing ones.
Partial dentures- Used to replace missing teeth especially when the health of the remaining teeth is in question
Full dentures- Used to replace teeth when all the teeth have be lost
