Paediatric Dentistry

Paediatric dentistry is an age-defined specialty that provides both preventive and therapeutic dental care for infants, children and adolescents. Prevention is better than cure, hence we strongly advocate that a child’s first dental visit should occur by age 1, so that we can offer personalised recommendations and help in developing good oral habits, to prevent dental problems and build a cavity-free smile.

We also offer dental services for sick and special children and adolescents, which may prevent them from obtaining dental care elsewhere.

Range of Services:

  • Preventive services
    • Oral health education
    • Fluoride applications
    • Remineralising therapies
    • Fissure sealants
  • Therapeutic services
    • Scaling
    • Fillings, pulp treatments, stainless steel crowns, extractions
    • Interceptive orthodontics
    • Treatment under general anaesthesia
    • Management of children with special medical, developmental needs
    • Management of acute dental infections
    • Management of children with cleft lip and palate or other craniofacial conditions
  • Trauma management
    • Emergency management of fractured or displaced primary or permanent teeth

Orthodontics

Orthodontics (or what we know as “braces”) is the specialty involved in the diagnosis, prevention and correction of dental or facial irregularities (otherwise termed “malocclusions”). Re-aligning the teeth (and in selected cases the jaws as well), creates a beautiful smile that not only improves self-esteem, but has a positive influence on dental health and tooth function. We offer various types of braces, including new technologies, which can move teeth with less discomfort, greater speed and better aesthetics.

Our orthodontic team also collaborates closely with our medical colleagues in the multidisciplinary management of children and adolescents with oro-facial conditions such as cleft lip and palate and sleep apnea.

Range of services:

  • Monitoring of developing jaw growth and tooth alignment
  • Interceptive orthodontics with removable or fixed appliances
  • Fixed and removable appliances
  • Orthodontic-orthognathic management of malocclusions
  • Multidisciplinary management of cleft lip and palate
  • Multidisciplinary management of other dentofacial deformities

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty which combines surgical training with dental expertise for the treatment of diseases, injuries, tumors, and deformities of the face and jaws. Oral surgical procedures include wisdom teeth surgery, dental extractions for medically compromised patients, placement of dental implants, aesthetic and functional jaw surgery and diagnosis and treatment of jaw cysts and tumours.

Range of services:

  • Wisdom tooth surgery
  • Removal of impacted teeth
  • Exposure of unerupted teeth
  • Orthognathic surgery
  • Maxillofacial trauma
  • Management of cysts and tumours of the jaw
  • Implant surgery
  • Temporomandibular disorders and orofacial pain

Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is the specialty involved in the restoration and replacement of teeth. Our prosthodontist helps make smiles beautiful by restoring or replacing the teeth, helping you smile with confidence and function better. We also collaborate closely with other dental specialties to manage the complex needs of patients with missing or malformed teeth.

Range of services:

  • Crowns, bridges, dentures
  • Implants
  • Veneers
  • Tooth whitening
  • Maxillofacial prosthodontics
