Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with teeth alignment problems.

Our well-trained dentists orthodontists use braces to align and straighten teeth; also to correct malocclusion (bad bite).


  • Irregular pattern of teeth.
  • Smile that exposes too much gum.
  • Gaps between teeth (Diastemas)
  • Inability to bite or chew properly
  • Jaw related problems
  • Improper habits such as thumb/finger sucking and mouth breathing

The ideal age for braces is between 9-15 years.

This is when the milk teeth has successfully shed and the movement of the permanent teeth can be controlled for desirable positioning in the jaws.

Orthodontic treatment can also be initiated earlier in case of jaw related problems or to break habits that can lead to malocclusion (misalignment of teeth and jaws).

For a case that does not include modifying or controlling jaw/facial growth, the orthodontic treatment may take from 2-3 years.

This duration includes initial alignment, correcting occlusion, correction of anterior and posterior bites, and maintaining new individual tooth positions.

Right after the removal of the fixed braces, patients are either given permanent or removable retainers based on the nature of their case. Both types are effective and should be worn daily to maintain the new orthodontically corrected smile.

The purpose of the retainers is to keep the teeth retained at their new positions and to prevent relapse. Failure to regularly wear retainers can cause teeth to return to their original positions.


With Clear Aligners, you:

  • Hide your treatment instead of your smile
  • Brush and floss teeth regularly
  • Remove aligners to eat meals and snacks
  • Wear aligners approximately 20 hours/day

You should wear each aligner for 20 to 22 hours a day during your treatment for best results and a timely outcome.

Some people may experience minor discomfort when they insert a new aligner at the beginning of each stage of treatment. Typically, people describe it as feeling “pressure” and it’s normal — it’s a sign your aligners are working and transforming your smile.

Clear Aligners

Using advanced 3D computer-imaging to create a digital model of your teeth, we can create a plan for your entire treatment before it even starts. Then, using a series of clear aligners custom-made just for you, we’ll position your teeth into the desired position.

Restorative Fillings


When a portion of the tooth affected by tooth decay is removed, dental fillings are done in order to restore the function and/or aesthetics of the tooth.

Bacteria present in our mouth will initiate caviations. Fillings are essential to arrest the carious process and to halt its progression.


  • Composite (tooth coloured material). Composite fillings provide a beautiful look that allows for a natural looking smile. Tooth-coloured fillings blend perfectly with the tooth enamel and also require less tooth preparation when compared to traditional metal fillings. The material is very durable and aesthetically superior to silver amalgam. The filling is colour matched to your natural tooth enamel which allows us to repair the tooth as well as improve and enhance the overall look.
  • Glass Ionomer Cements / GIC (fluoride releasing properties)
  • In case of larger defects, an inlay / onlay / crown may be advised to restore the function of your teeth.

We believe that fillings or any dental treatment should never be painful!

In case of compromised structure and dentin exposure, Local Anesthesia will be given to patients to reduce any discomfort and provide a comfortable experience.


  • Conserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible
  • Preserve tooth vitality and prevent unnecessary root canals
  • Restore teeth that would otherwise need an extraction
  • Increase the bond strength of our restorations by 400% with Immediate Dentin Sealing (IDS)
  • Minimise shrinkage stress on the teeth
  • Eliminate sensitivity
  • Create long-lasting restorations that prevent complications experienced with traditional approaches
  • Gold standard adhesives such as Optibond FL and Kuraray’s Clearfil SE Protect. Decades of research point to gold standard adhesives achieving the highest bond strength.
  • Composite resins which mimic dentin
  • Ceramics which mimic enamel
  • Fibers. Fiber-reinforced materials like a fiber mesh (Ribbond) interrupts polymerization shrinkage and reinforces the tooth by dispersing the forces imposed on the tooth when chewing.

Biomimetic Dentistry

Translated literally, biomimetic dentistry means to copy what is life-like. Nature has provided the most successful and ideal properties to our natural teeth. When restoring damaged, broken, and decayed teeth, the goal is to return the tooth to its original strength, function, and esthetics. 

Biomimetic dentistry accomplishes all of this in a minimally invasive, conservative and strong approach by utilising Advanced Adhesive Dentistry techniques.

With Biomimetic dentistry, only the damage and decay is removed, and your final restoration is bonded to the healthy natural tooth structure. The final restoration is often referred to as an inlay or onlay restoration. There is no extra removal of healthy structures to fit a crown and the result is a conservative and strong final restoration.

Crowns & Prosthetics


Dental crowns are caps which are used to overlay a compromised tooth as well as dental implants.

They are primarily used to serve two major purpose, i.e. aesthetics and strengthening of the remaining tooth structure.

They are also relatively easy to maintain a crown in the oral cavity given that the patient’s oral hygiene is ideal.


  • Fractured or broken tooth.
  • Tooth that has lost considerable structure.
  • Following up after root canal treatments.
  • Preventive strategy to protect a tooth.
  • Covering the abutment of a dental implant.
  • To restore the aesthetics of a tooth.

This procedure is not painful.

But in case of compromised structure and dentine exposure, local anesthesia is given to patients to reduce any discomfort.


Gum disease or periodontal disease is usually caused by bacterial plaque and tartar that builds up beneath the gum line. If not cleaned away, these bacteria could damage the bone which holds the teeth and contribute to tooth loss.

However, gum infection can be existent for many years before being detected by a dental professional. As a result, it is necessary that regular check-ups are performed – in particular when other concerns which include diabetes or heart conditions are existent.

Symptoms include:

  • swollen, red or uncomfortable gum
  • gums which bleed
  • unusual bad breath

Gum care or periodontal treatments such as scaling and polishing, and root planing, leave the gums (pink tissues) healthy and relieves the patients of pain, discomfort, bad breath or bacterial build up.

The gums’ complete strength and functionality is restored — healthy gums contribute to healthy teeth!

Healthy adults should have their teeth cleaned via scaling every 6 months. In addition, it’s necessary for you to maintain good oral hygiene at home, as this can further minimise your risk for infection and keep your smile looking and feeling its best between appointments!

Scaling and root planning surgeries are generally done in single or double visits, but the patient is normally advised for follow-up visits to evaluate the health of the gums.

Along with the treatment, the patient may be given antibiotic medication and gels to promote natural healing and to keep discomfort at bay.

Gum Care


Gingivitis is a common gum condition that causes swelling and bleeding – if not treated in a timely manner, this can progress on to a condition called periodontitis. This may cause pocketing and recession of the gums, thus reducing dental support and resulting in tooth mobility.

Gum care procedure can effectively remove the calculus and bacteria responsible for these gum conditions.

Your child’s first dental visit will introduce them to what they can expect from a typical visit to the dentist.

We understand that a child’s early experience at dental visits can influence their attitude towards dentists for a lifetime. Our dentists will use various techniques to help your child feel calm and comfortable at their dental visit. These techniques include “tell-show-do,” praise, distraction, nonverbal communication, and parent participation.

Absolutely. Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, they still play a vital role in your child’s oral health, serving as “placeholders” for adult teeth as well as playing a major role in nutrition, speech development, and socialization. When decay or other issues aren’t properly addressed, the adult teeth that are still below the gum surface can be affected, and any underlying infection can be detrimental to the bone and permanent tooth. Childhood also is the best time to spot and begin to correct issues like overcrowding and poor alignment that can have a more serious impact in later years.

In interceptive orthodontics , we identify and treat crooked teeth as soon as they are detected. According to the American Academy of Orthodontics, all children should have an orthodontic assessment no later than 7 years old.


Wisdom teeth are the third molars in the very back of our mouths and don’t always need to be removed so long as they’re healthy, grown in completely, biting correctly, and are able to be cleaned as part of regular hygiene practices.

Often, wisdom teeth don’t have room to grow properly and end up creating problems for your other teeth. Through X-rays and scans of the mouth and jaw, dentists can predict problems with your wisdom teeth before they arise, which means you may not have pain when your dentist recommends an extraction.

You should see a dentist as soon as you begin experiencing changes in your teeth or any of the following symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Repeated infection of soft tissue behind the lower last tooth
  • Gum disease
  • Extensive tooth decay

Consult your dentist about the position and health of your wisdom teeth and together, you can determine a solution that’s best for you.


Patients will be given local anesthesia which numbs the region of the surgery. Patients are also given analgesic medications to curb any post-surgical pain.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction


Impactions are most common problems associated with wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth impactions occur due to lack of space in the arch, forcing the tooth to erupt in a sideways manner, mostly towards the inner cheek causing discomfort, swelling and pain.

Other problems associated with wisdom teeth include caries and decay.

Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is a dental procedure whereby specialized oral chemicals that are non-harmful are used to give the patient a whiter, brighter smile.

Teeth whitening is recommended for people who are not confident about their smiles because of pale or discolored teeth.


There are a number of factors that can result in staining or discoloration of the teeth. Broadly, these factors are divided into extrinsic and intrinsic factors.

Extrinsic factors include food and beverages that can cause staining such as coffee, tea, wine, sauces, fruit such as berries and other food that contains artificial coloring agents. Habits such as excessive smoking can also leave stains on teeth that cannot be cleaned by brushing alone.

Intrinsic staining can be caused by dental conditions such as fluorosis which can leave white, yellow and brown discoloration on teeth, by drugs such as tetracycline, by dental restorative materials, direct trauma to a tooth or multiple teeth, root canal procedures and ageing. Failure to maintain ideal oral hygiene on daily basis can also cause generalized discoloration of the teeth.

All teeth whitening procedures performed at the dental clinic have lasting effects, however, the consumption of staining beverages, teeth and excessive smoking can discolor the teeth once again. Failure to maintain good oral hygiene can also affect the results shortly after the procedure has been done.

It is for this reason that all leading dentists instruct patients on how to clean teeth properly, and to keep the consumption of food and beverages that can cause staining to the minimal. The effects can be prolonged by proper cleaning, giving up smoking, and reducing consumption of foods and drinks that can cause teeth discoloration.
