DENTAL X-RAYS AT YOUR DENTIST

Dental X-Rays taken by your dentist help detect and spot early signs of decay, gum disease and other underlying oral problems and complications. Detecting and diagnosing dental problems before they get worse can save money, reduce discomfort, and improve the quality of your life.

Our dentists at Heritage Dental Group use digital x-rays which emit far less radiation than the traditional x-rays. Dentist will only take diagnostic x-rays to check your teeth if any issues are suspected. Our latest digital x-ray technology ensures minimal exposure to radiation and is safe. Your dentist will take x-rays for the comprehensive examination of your mouth.

INTRAORAL X-RAYS are the most common type of dental x-rays. The x-ray film is placed inside your mouth.

Early Childhood Dental Visits

WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD VISIT THE DENTIST?

Dr Singh recommends your child should have their first dental check-up by their first birthday. Dental check-ups pick up any abnormalities or tooth decay at this age. Dental check-up is as important as general health check. Usually, 6-12 monthly dental check-ups are recommended. Children who are at high risk of tooth decay may need more frequent dental visits.

Dry Socket Pain

DRY SOCKET PAIN

Dry Socket Pain

 

What is dry socket (Alveolar Osteitis)?

Dry socket is a common complication of tooth extraction. It can be a quiet painful experience, but it can be easily treated by your dentist. Usually, dry socket happens when the blood clot at the site of the tooth extraction fails to develop, or it dislodges or dissolves before the wound has healed. It leaves the bone exposed to air, food, and fluids. The blood clot limits the bleeding in the area after tooth extraction and lays a foundation for new bone and tissue in the area. Dry sockets can often delay the healing process.

How does teeth-whitening work?

Teeth whitening products contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These teeth whitening products break or dissolve the stains into smaller pieces which makes the colour of your teeth less concentrated, and your teeth look whiter.

Does teeth-whitening work on all teeth?

No, teeth whitening does not work on all teeth. It is important to talk to your dentist before starting any teeth whitening treatment or product. Teeth whitening will not work on Dental veneers, Crowns, or fillings. Always consult your dentist.
