    Dentistry

    At HMC, our dentists provide best-in-class dental care for you and your family. From general hygiene to cosmetic dentistry, our dental clinic offers a full range of treatments in a modern and comfortable environment. A detailed list of our dental services are as follows:

    • FLUORIDE APPLICATION
      The enamel of the tooth is made up of minerals, mainly fluoride, calcium and phosphate. These minerals have a tendency to dissolve, which is a process called demineralization. A common cause for this is acid contact and constant chewing and biting. Your teeth constantly need to replace these lost minerals, which is aided by fluoride application.
    • FISSURE SEALANT
      An effective method to prevent your teeth from decaying is to follow a professional dental cleaning with dental sealants. Just like you would apply a final varnish coating to wooden furniture to protect it from insects and scratches, we use a special tooth colored liquid paste to seal these tiny fissures, effectively preventing tooth decay.
    • PROFESSIONAL SCALING/CLEANING
      This involves removal of plaque, tartar, and stains which accumulate over a time. Complimentary polishing is also provided with this procedure.
      Regularly opting to have your teeth professionally cleaned and polished will enhance your smile. For long term maintenance of teeth, it is advisable to go in for a professional cleaning once in six months, even if you do not have an evident gum problem.
    • COSMETIC FILLINGS
      A filling helps to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape, helping the prevention of further decay by eliminating areas where bacteria can enter the tooth. No more black silver fillings! We offer tooth colored fillings that will sit in your teeth unnoticed!
    • ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
      A root canal treatment is a painless procedure can save badly decayed or infected tooth. During this treatment, the infected nerve (pulp) is removed, infection is drained, the canal is disinfected and shaped, filled again, and finally, sealed.
    • TEETH WHITENING/BLEACHING
      Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that reverses most discolorations of enamel. There is no loss of natural tooth structure. The result displays a dramatic change in the color of your teeth and a beautiful smile! You can lighten your teeth from 2 to 3 shades in just over an hour.
    • CROWNS AND BRIDGES
      Crown is a protective covering for a root canal treated tooth. Bridges are used for the replacement of missing teeth when an implant is not possible. We have various options: metal, metal + ceramic, all ceramic (eMax), and zircon.
      We can help you achieve the perfect shade, making it extremely difficult to tell the artificial tooth apart!
    • COSMETIC DENTISTRY & HOLLYWOOD SMILE DESIGNING
      Worn out, misaligned, cracked, chipped off, and gaped teeth can be corrected in 2-3 sittings by paper thin custom made color-matched sheath laminates and veneers bonded to the tooth surface. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth to change their color, shape, size, or length.
      Hollywood Smile designing is a dental artistry in which we use various techniques and resources including digital photographs and CAD CAM to redesign your smile to perfection.
    • DENTURES
      These are removable artificial teeth replacements for many or all missing teeth. We have many options such as complete, partial, implant supported, flexible, and Valplast dentures. The color of the acrylic appears like the gums. They are convenient to use, prevent bone loss and are effective for chewing and speaking. They also prevent “sinking in” of the cheeks and the aged appearance which comes with the loss of teeth.
    • TOOTH REMOVAL OR EXTRACTION
      Carious or fractured or mobile teeth that cannot be restored by the dentist must be removed because they will frequently give rise to severe infections and pain. The removal of teeth can vary from simple extractions to complicated surgical procedures.
      Impacted teeth are either unerupted or partially erupted. Impacted wisdom tooth can cause pain, swelling, infection, and may even lead to cyst formation. The removal of such impacted wisdom tooth is accomplished surgically
      Loss of teeth can be psychologically traumatic psychological that can lead to inability to chew food properly, deteriorated dental alignment, speech difficulty, and changes that make the face look aged.

    FAQs

    I suffer from Toothache or Tooth pain. What can be done for this?

    1

    If your mouth or jaw hurt, it could be from a toothache. Toothaches usually indicate a cavity but they can also signal gum disease, abscess or impacted tooth. A toothache could be on drinking cold water or chewing food or it could be continuous pain. A toothache should be evaluated by a dentist right away to determine the cause of the problem and prevent the tooth from dying.

    I suffer from Swelling around tooth. What can be done for this?

    2

    This happens when the root (the bottom part) of a tooth becomes infected and fills up with bacteria. It damages the nerves and the pulp tissue inside the tooth itself, if left untreated, so get to the dentist right away if you think that you might have this condition. The most severe root infections cause patients to develop serious and painful abscesses, i.e. very sore facial swellings. However, if you deal with a painful tooth quickly, this should not happen. The only real solution for a root infection is an affordable root canal treatment or extraction, depending upon the condition of the involved tooth. If the wisdom tooth is involved, we usually extract them.

    My Teeth are sensitive to cold water. What can be done for this?

    3

    If your teeth hurt when you drink hot or cold beverages, you may have sensitive teeth. This can be the result of tooth decay, fractured teeth, worn fillings, gum disease, worn tooth enamel or an exposed tooth root due to gum recession. Treatment will depend on the source of sensitivity. If you’re concerned about the sensitivity of your teeth see your dentist for diagnosis and treatment options.

    I have Tooth decay with Food lodgement. What can be done for this?

    4

    Tooth decay is also referred to as dental caries or cavities. It occurs when the bacteria in plaque is given the chance to settle on teeth. It produces an acid that slowly eats away at the tooth enamel and forms holes. Once you have cavities, there is no real way to reverse them, but you must have it treated by a dentist. If you leave it to deteriorate, it could progress into an infection or abscess. These conditions cause a lot of pain and discomfort for patients. This is why timely repair procedures are essential, whether they take the form of a standard filling, a root canal treatment and crown, or a tooth extraction. Extractions should always be a last resort, so it is fairly rare for decayed teeth to be pulled.

    I have Cracked and Broken Teeth. What can be done for this?

    5

    A cracked or broken tooth can happen for a variety of reasons—brittle teeth, teeth grinding, injury. The crack may be invisible to the naked eye and even X-ray, but they can be incredibly painful and create bigger problems if left untreated. If you experience pain when chewing see the dentist. They can diagnose the cause and develop a plan for treatment.

    I have Stained and Discoloured Teeth (Yellow - Brown Teeth). What can be done for this?

    6

    Over time your teeth can become stained and change color. This is often the result of eating certain foods, such as coffee or tea, smoking, aging, genetics, injury, or certain medications. Whitening options can include over the counter or in office treatments. Check with the dentist about your options for stain removal.

    I have several Missing Teeth. What can be done for this?

    7

    There are several options for replacing missing teeth. The best solution depends on which teeth are lost, and how many teeth are lost. Options generally include removable dentures, fixed bridges, and dental implants. Combinations of these procedures are common. Bone filling procedures may be recommended for patients who have lost significant bone along with the loss of their teeth.

    I have Wiggly, Loose teeth that are mobile when chewing. What can be done for this?

    8

    Loose teeth are the result of gum and bone diseases. If mobility is severe enough it ultimately results in loss of teeth. Loose teeth could also be because of diabetes, osteoporosis, pregnancy hormones, traumatic forces or injury, or some underlying medical condition. It’s important to identify loose teeth as soon as possible so that treatment can be completed before it is too late.

    I have Bad Breath. What can be done for this?

    9

    Bad breath can be caused by what you eat, not cleaning your mouth, dry mouth, smoking or other medical conditions. Persistent bad breath can also be one of the warning signs of gum disease. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily are essential to reducing bad breath and preventing gum disease. Brushing your tongue can help too. If you’re concerned about what’s causing your bad breath, see the dentist. They can determine the cause and treatment plan.

    I have Dental Plaque or Tartar. What can be done for this?

    10

    Plaque is a sticky, colorless film of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth and along the gum line, which is not necessarily easy to see. Plaque contains bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease. But if you remove plaque regularly, you can prevent teeth and gum problems. Bigger problems arise, however, if plaque stays on your teeth and hardens into tartar. Tartar, also called calculus, forms below and above the gum line. The most common sign of tartar is a yellow or brown deposit between the lower front teeth or at the gum line. The only way to remove tartar completely is to see the dentist for professional tartar removing procedures.

    I have Bleeding or Sore or Swollen Gums. What can be done for this?

    11

    Bleeding or sore gums can be a sign of an early and reversible stage of gum disease, or simply the result of brushing too hard or starting a new flossing routine. If your gums bleed regularly, or enough to worry you, make an appointment with the dentist, it could be a sign that something else is wrong.

    I have Mouth Sores or Ulcers. What can be done for this?

    12

    Mouth sores could be the caused by a medical disease or disorder, an infection, or result from irritation caused by braces, dentures or the sharp edge of a broken tooth or filling. Get it checked by the dentist if any mouth sore lasts a week or longer.

    I have Dry Mouth. What can be done for this?

    13

    If you have dry mouth it may be the symptom of a medical disorder or a side effect of certain medications. Saliva is the mouth’s primary defense against tooth decay. It washes away food and other debris, neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and provides disease-fighting substances throughout the mouth. Your dentist can recommend ways to restore moisture

    I have Crowded and Crooked and Overlapping teeth. What can be done for this?

    14

    When you have a nice smile, you smile more. If your smile is affected by crooked or crowded teeth, you are bound to smile less frequently. Aside from the impact on appearance and self-esteem, crowded teeth are also more difficult to keep clean, increasing the incidences of decay, gum and bone disease. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do at home to correct crowded teeth. Straightening teeth requires professional help from a dentist and orthodontist. An orthodontist may recommend a retainer, a spacer, braces or aligners. Sometimes, removal of both primary and permanent teeth is recommended.

    I have Spacing and Gaps in my Teeth. What can be done for this?

    14

    Gaps or diastema can occur between any teeth. If the teeth are too small for the jaw bone, spaces between the teeth will occur. Some habits like thumb sucking and even gum disease can also cause gaps between teeth.Some people are advised by the dentist to get braces on all teeth , which move the teeth together.If your front teeth are too small, the dentist may suggest widening them using crowns, veneers or bonding.If you have a space because you are missing teeth, you might need more extensive dental repair.

    I have Jaw Pain and Popping/Clicking in my Jaw. What can be done for this?

    15

    Many things can cause Jaw popping or jaw clicking, which can make it difficult to diagnose. The dentist will conduct a thorough exam, which may include X-rays, to determine the source of the pain.

    I have Teeth grinding and clenching, especially at night. What can be done for this?

    16

    Bruxism is a condition in which you grind, gnash or clench your teeth. If you have bruxism, you may unconsciously clench your teeth when you’re awake (awake bruxism) or clench or grind them during sleep (sleep bruxism).Mild bruxism may not require treatment. However, in some people, bruxism can be frequent and severe enough to lead to jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems.
