Dental Care Clinic
A Robina Dental care clinic provides oral health services such as examinations, x-rays, teeth cleanings and fillings to patients. It also provides emergency dental care for patients who have oral trauma during clinic hours.
CDCTC is a comprehensive dental care teaching clinic for undergraduate clinical training. It is a modified speciality-based system that was introduced in August 2019. Faculty from all the 9 dental specialities are posted as consultants in the clinics.
Oral hygiene is an important part of maintaining your dental health. Your dentist and dental hygienist will work with you to make sure your teeth, gums and mouth are healthy.
This includes removing the plaque that develops on your teeth. This can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Prevention focuses on preventing dental problems like tooth decay, gum disease and systemic illnesses associated with poor oral health. It involves regular checkups and good home care habits.
It also includes the use of X-rays and sealants to protect your teeth from damage. It helps you avoid pain and expensive treatments that might otherwise be needed.
Dental care clinics are an important source of care for low-income and elderly patients who cannot afford regular visits to a dentist. They also help patients who have a fear of the dentist or who are from families with little or no dental insurance.
Patient screenings are performed before admission into our treatment programs. These evaluations determine if you have dental needs that can be managed by students.
Endodontists are specialists who focus on the interior of your teeth. They diagnose and treat pain & perform root canals, a treatment to save an infected tooth.
The inside of your teeth contains a soft tissue called pulp that has blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. It can get inflamed or infected due to deep decay, traumatic injury, cracks and fractures, or repeated dental procedures.
Periodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the health of the supporting structures surrounding your teeth. It’s a field of dentistry that deals with conditions that affect these tissues, such as bone loss, gum disease and tooth loss.
Periodontics offers patients a number of benefits, including symptom alleviation, a healthier smile and a reduced risk of some general health problems, such as cardiovascular disease.
Orthodontics is a specialty area of dentistry concerned with straightening misaligned teeth or malocclusions. It is a branch of dentistry that uses a variety of unobtrusive appliances to align teeth and jaws.
Malocclusions can affect a person’s dental health in numerous ways. For instance, crooked or misaligned teeth make it harder to brush and floss effectively. Those malocclusions also create additional areas where plaque can build up and lead to tooth decay.
Endodontic surgery is often needed when a root canal does not cure the infection or the tooth needs additional treatment after the initial treatment. This surgery is usually performed under local anesthetic and helps to save the tooth.
This type of surgery involves opening the gum tissue around a tooth that is affected by inflammation or infection and removing inflamed or infected tissue from the very bottom tip of the tooth root. A filling (retrofill) is then placed to seal off the area and help with bone regeneration.
Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth and offer a natural look, feel, and function.
A titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone. As the implant heals, it fuses with the bone (known as osseointegration) to form a sturdy base for your tooth replacement.
Implants can be used to replace single teeth, several adjacent teeth, all of the teeth in a row, or support a removable or fixed denture.
Dental radiographs help dentists diagnose hidden dental structures, malignant or benign masses, bone loss and cavities. They also can detect hard-to-find cysts, abscesses and growths.
X-rays are safe, releasing low levels of radiation in comparison to background radiation received from the sun, soil, rocks, buildings, air and water. According to the American Dental Association, radiation exposure from dental X-rays is 2.5% of the average daily radiation we receive.
Periodontal surgery is a plastic (reshaping) surgical procedure designed to restore and regenerate normal form and function to lost and damaged periodontal structures which support the teeth.
These include the gum tissue, periodontal ligament and bone. Depending on the type of disease and its stage, different treatment options may be recommended.
