Dentistry is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral health issues. It aims at maintaining the health and aesthetics of the teeth, gums, and mouth. Dentists play a vital role in promoting oral hygiene and overall well-being. They are trained professionals who possess the knowledge and skills to identify and address various dental conditions, ranging from cavities and gum disease to tooth loss and cosmetic concerns.

Our Expert Doctors


How often should I visit the dentist for a check-up?

It is recommended to visit the dentist every six months for a routine check-up and professional cleaning. Regular visits help detect any dental issues early on, prevent gum diseases, and maintain good oral health. Your dentist can also provide personalised advice and treatment based on your specific needs.

What can I do to prevent tooth decay?c

Preventing tooth decay involves practicing good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day using fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and limit sugary foods and drinks. Regular dental check-ups, along with dental sealants and fluoride treatments, can also help in preventing tooth decay and maintaining strong teeth.

What should I do in a dental emergency?

In a dental emergency, it’s crucial to remain calm and contact your dentist immediately. If a tooth is knocked out, rinse it with water and try to reinsert it gently. If that’s not possible, store it in milk or saliva and seek dental care promptly. For severe pain or injuries, visit an emergency dental clinic or hospital.

Are dental X-rays safe?

Yes, dental X-rays are safe. The level of radiation exposure is minimal, and modern equipment further reduces it. Dentists use X-rays to diagnose dental problems that may not be visible with a visual examination alone. They take necessary precautions, such as using lead aprons and collars, to minimize radiation exposure.

What are the options for replacing a missing tooth?

There are several options to replace a missing tooth, including dental implants, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants are a popular choice as they provide a long-term solution that closely resembles a natural tooth. Bridges are used to span the gap between adjacent teeth, while dentures are removable appliances that replace multiple missing teeth.

How can I reduce dental anxiety?

Dental anxiety is common, but there are strategies to alleviate it. Communicate your fears with your dentist, who can offer reassurance and explain procedures in detail. Distraction techniques, such as listening to music, meditation, and agreeing with your dentist on a signal to stop during the treatment for a break (such as raising your left pointer finger or hand) Additionally, sedation dentistry options like nitrous oxide or oral sedatives can be considered for more significant anxiety.

Can orthodontic treatment be done as an adult?

Yes, orthodontic treatment can be done at any age. Many adults opt for orthodontic treatment to correct misaligned teeth or bite issues. Options like clear aligners are popular among adults as they are discreet and removable. Consult with an orthodontist to determine the best treatment option based on your specific dental needs.


What is periodontal disease, and how can it be treated?

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is an infection of the gums and tissues supporting the teeth. It can lead to gum recession, bone loss, and tooth loss if left untreated. Treatment depends on the severity but may include professional deep cleaning (scaling and root planing), medication, and, in advanced cases, surgical intervention.

How can I improve bad breath?

Improving bad breath, or halitosis, involves addressing its underlying causes. Practicing good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth and tongue, flossing, and using mouthwash can help reduce bacteria in the mouth. Regular dental cleanings and check-ups can also prevent gum disease and detect any dental issues contributing to bad breath. Additionally, staying hydrated, avoiding tobacco and alcohol, and maintaining a healthy diet can contribute to fresher breath. If the problem persists, consult your dentist to rule out any underlying medical conditions.
