Root canal treatment is a procedure to remove infection from the pulp chamber and root canal system of the affected tooth.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
This is a broad area which encompasses wisdom tooth surgery, dental implant surgery, jaw surgery, trauma management, cleft lip and palate repair and oral cancer surgery.
Dental braces are orthodontic devices used to align and straighten teeth in order to improve the bite and access for oral hygiene.
Treatment modality for gum disease depends on the severity of the disease. Nonsurgical therapies that control bacterial plaque are utilised for mild and moderately severe forms of the disease. Surgery may be indicated in the advanced stages of disease to improve access for debridement and to restore supporting tissues.
Prosthodontics is the area of care which involves the provision of dental prostheses to replace missing teeth or defective tooth structure. This can restore function and improve aesthetics. It is an extension of general dental services when complex cases, such as full mouth rehabilitation procedures, require management by the prosthodontist.
Special Needs Dentistry and Medically-indicated Dentistry
These fields of dentistry involve the treatment of patients with special needs, complex medical conditions, and the elderly, who require tertiary care.
