General dentistry focuses on the well-being and maintenance of oral health. It includes regular dental checkup, oral hygiene instructions, teeth cleansing, fillings, extractions, root canal treatments, periodontal treatment and the making of dental crowns and bridges.
For the long-term well-being of our teeth, we all should form the habit of regular checkup, X Ray examination and teeth cleansing.
Fillings are done when there is dental decay, where the decayed tooth material is removed and a tooth coloured material is bonded to the cavity to prevent further disease.
Sometimes, teeth need to be extracted due to disease or to facilitate orthodontic treatment. Dental Bauhinia provides pain free extractions where we use the help of medication and anaesthesia to minimise any discomfort during the procedures.
This is done when dental decay or dental crack extends to the nerves inside a tooth. The decay and crack would cause pain and swelling which can be dealt with through root canal treatments. The diseased tooth will be able to be saved this way.
