Dental & Implant


With the advancement of the dentistry, dental treatment is becoming another critical medical treatment that goes beyond pulling or filing of decay tooth.

Dental specialists are specialists in their specific fields who completed 3 years of training in a Master programme and 2 years of hospital attachment. These specialists offer specialist dental treatments to suite different needs of clients.

Prosthodontics is a   dental specialty that restores and replaces missing tooth structure, teeth   and soft tissue, with an emphasis on restoring natural function and   appearance.

Prosthodontics is   the specialty of implant, aesthetic, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Prosthodontists are dental specialists in this field. They   restore oral function through dentures, dental crowns, bridges and dental   implant restorations.

Prosthodontists have   an additional three years of specialised training in the field of   prosthodontics. The American College of Prosthodontists states: "   Prosthodontists are dental specialists engaged in the restoration and   replacement of teeth. A Prosthodontist can aid in the rehabilitation of a   complete dentition or merely the replacement of one or two teeth."

Dental implants are the single most important advancement in dentistry.
Tooth extraction is quite common due to poor dental health and gum disease. Leaving the missing tooth space empty may not sound too serious, but the consequences of not filling in the space can include:
  • Adjacent      teeth changing position
  • Shrinking      of the jawbone, making the face appear prematurely older
  • Reduced      self-confidence and a less appealing smile

Dental implants fill up gaps.

dental fill up Dental Implants are small titanium screws placed in bone to replace the root of a missing tooth. The titanium dental implant becomes integrated with the bone in a process known as osseointegration.

The abutment, and a crown or bridge, restores the missing part of the tooth/teeth above the gum.

The dental implant-supported restoration looks, feels and functions virtually like a real tooth. It is a permanent replacement solution for a missing tooth and can be used to replace dentures anywhere in the mouth. Dental implant supported restorations can truly increase the quality of life and allow you to enjoy food better.

Types of dental implant restorations:

  • Crowns     
  • Bridges     
  • Dental implant-supported hybrid dentures
  • Dental implant-retained bridges

A dental implant should be considered when:

  • A tooth is beyond repair and requires an extraction
  • Teeth are missing
  • The number of teeth is insufficient for a tooth-supported bridge
  • Upper and lower jaws are edentulous
  • Dentures are loose or uncomfortable

Who is suitable for dental implants?

Basically, if you are healthy enough to have a tooth taken out, you are probably healthy enough to have a dental implant placed.

Patients are usually concerned about being too old for the procedure. There is no maximum age limit to who can receive a dental implant, only a minimum age limit. Patients who are still growing are usually not suitable for dental implant procedure.

Who is not suitable for dental implants?

Patients with the following conditions must be carefully evaluated:

  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Steroid therapy
  • Connective tissue disorders


Orthodontics is a dental speciality that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both.

An orthodontist is a dental specialist in the treatment of dental and facial irregularities. They can tell you how early dental braces treatment can prevent more serious problems from developing. If required, the orthodontist will provide you a complete treatment plan, usually involving dental braces, with a prescription specific to your needs.

Why do braces?

A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health. Straight and properly aligned teeth:

  • Are easier to keep clean.
  • Chew more efficiently.
  • Create a better bite, which can reduce headaches and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.

When left untreated, many orthodontic problems become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean. This may contribute to not only tooth decay but also eventual gum disease and tooth loss.

Treatment by a dental braces specialist to correct the original problem is often less costly than the dental care required to treat more serious problems later.

When is the best time to start?

The best time to start dental braces treatment is usually determined by the orthodontist and varies among individuals.

  • Ideal age is usually 12 to 13 years
  • It is recommended for a child to have an early examination at age 7, to allow the orthodontist to determine the best time and type of treatment.

What should I expect during braces treatment?

The first step is for the orthodontist to determine if dental braces are suitable for you through a thorough clinical and digital imaging examination. If dental braces are appropriate, moulds and impressions are made. These records are analysed to determine the problems and proper treatment. Treatment times vary from six months to three years, depending on types of problems, and the age of the patient. Orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery) may be required in extreme cases.

Most commonly, a fixed multibracket dental
braces therapy is used. In this case, orthodontic wires are inserted into
dental brackets, which can be made from stainless steel or a more aesthetic
ceramic material (invisible braces).

After active dental braces treatment is completed, retainers are worn to prevent teeth from moving back to their original position.


Invisalign® is an alternative to straighten your teeth without braces. It is a 3-D computer imaging technology. Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable retainers to straighten crooked teeth invisibly. One of the wonderful things about Invisalign® is that they are invisible, so no one knows you are wearing them.

You can take them out for daily necessities like eating and drinking, brushing, and for special events. No metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth, they are comfortable and convenient.

How to get started?

Step 1: See our orthodontists who are certified Invisalign providers
Not all patients are suitable for Invisalign. A proper consultation and examination would be carried out by the orthodontist to assess your suitability for Invisalign or conventional braces. Invisalign is great for people who do not have severe problems, or severely crooked teeth.

Step 2: Map out a treatment plan
Our doctors will develop a treatment plan specifically for you. Then the doctor takes bite impressions of your teeth, which Invisalign will use to custom-mold a series of clear, removable aligners that will gradually move your teeth into an incredible new smile.

Step 3: Your aligners are created
The advancements in technology that led to clear aligners were developed by Invisalign. Your aligners are created via precision computer mapping and design, and are then shipped to your doctor.

Step 4: Wear your aligners
You will receive your aligner series, switching to a new aligner every two weeks as your teeth move. Just wear each set of aligners night and day for a two week period, removing them only to eat, brush and floss. Your teeth will move little by little with each aligner.

The orthodontist will review your progress regularly. Each case is a little different, but on average, treatment lasts about a year.

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerning supporting structures of teeth, and diseases that affect them. The supporting structure includes the gingiva (gums), periodontal attachment and the supporting bone.

According to the American Academy of Periodontology website: "A Periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases, and the placement and maintenance of dental implants."

A Periodontist also specialises in beautifying your smile by sculpting your gums through various cosmetic gum surgical procedures.
