General Dentistry Treatment in GMC Clinic Tecom Dubai – Practicing good oral hygiene means maintaining your smile by visiting the dentist regularly and taking care of your teeth and gums between check-ups. Our General Dentist will work with you to develop a customized dental hygiene plan that incorporates dental examination, tooth cleaning, X-ray and the use of other diagnostic equipment to prevent, uncover or treat problems as early as possible.
Routine Examining and Oral Care
We recommend that you visit your dentist regularly at least once every six months – to ensure proper oral hygiene and functionality. Regular checkups and oral health maintenance prevent the development of serious dental problems that can require costly treatment. If you remain vigilant and visit your dentist regularly, you can enjoy exceptional dental health. During your regular check-up, your dentist will:
– Check for any problems that you may not see or feel
– Look for cavities or any other signs of tooth decay
– Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease
Visiting the dentist also gives you the chance to talk with your doctor and receive answers for any questions you may have about your oral health. Check-ups are also a great way for you to find out about new treatments that may benefit your smile.
Only a dentist can detect whether you have a cavity that needs to be filled. During your checkup, we will use a small mirror and an intra-oral camera to examine each tooth. Anything that looks abnormal will need to be checked closely. We may need to take an X-ray to determine the extent and exact location of the cavity and decay.
If has been determined by your dentist that a filling is needed to repair a cavity, there are a variety of different materials that can be used for filling teeth. Based on your medical history, location of the cavity, esthetic needs, cost, and your preference, we will decide which option is the best for you. These options include direct composite bonding, gold or ceramic inlays/onlays created in our dental laboratory, using CAD/CAM equipment.
The average life of a filling is about 7-12 years. It is important to visit your dentist regularly so that your fillings can be examined. Between dental check-ups it is also important to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent decay from occurring under the filling. If you have many fillings or very large fillings, your dentist may prescribe a fluoride gel you can use at home. You can also use rinses that lower the acid level of your mouth. A lower acid level reduces decay-causing bacteria. This can lead to fewer cavities and dental fillings in the future
