Other Ser­vices of Den­tal Clin­ics – Be­sides Teeth Clean­ing

The Freeman - - LIFESTYLE -

Most peo­ple go to den­tal clin­ics to cure a toothache or to have their teeth cleaned. They don’t know that den­tal clin­ics

– the bet­ter ones at least – can do a lot more for their over­all den­tal and oral health. For those who care about the look of their teeth, the bet­ter den­tal clin­ics do aes­thetic ser­vices for them, as well.

The Gan Ad­vanced Osseoin­te­gra­tion Cen­ter (GAOC), one of Asia’s world-class and most ad­vanced den­tal cen­ters with nine clin­ics in Metro Manila and one in Cebu, pro­vides a host of ser­vices to suit dif­fer­ent needs. Their first clinic in Cebu, at SM Sea­side City, the largest venue in the coun­try to date, of­fers var­i­ous ser­vices:

Cos­metic Den­tistry.

Pearly white teeth are ideal, and GAOC can eas­ily make that hap­pen safely and ef­fec­tively with their Plasma Arc Blue Light tech­nol­ogy, which ac­ti­vates a spe­cial­ly­for­mu­lated gel to lighten stained or dis­col­ored teeth.

Den­tal Ve­neers are an­other cos­metic op­tion to achieve per­fect smiles. Thin pieces of porce­lain or plas­tic are bonded with the teeth to cover up chipped or heav­ilystained teeth, in or­der to cre­ate a more even sur­face.

For those who are con­scious of their smile be­cause of miss­ing teeth, GAOC’s Prosthodon­tics op­tions can help. A Den­tal Crown is an easy so­lu­tion for those miss­ing a sin­gle tooth, while Bridges are bonded to ad­ja­cent teeth or im­plants to re­store the ap­pear­ance of a full set of teeth. Mean­while, Den­tures are ar­ti­fi­cial teeth and gums that are cus­tom-fit to help pre­serve the mouth’s struc­tural in­tegrity which al­lows peo­ple to con­tinue chew­ing food eas­ily.


Im­plant Den­tistry.

If den­tures or bridge­work are not ideal, one can still have a great smile with Den­tal Im­plants. This sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure re­places miss­ing or dam­aged teeth with per­ma­nent, ar­ti­fi­cial ones which are drilled into the roots and fused with the bone.

Oral Surgery. With wis­dom teeth and third mo­lars be­ing com­mon, a tooth ex­trac­tion is a fairly stan­dard pro­ce­dure, although some cases may get com­pli­cated. The com­bi­na­tion of GAOC’s state-of-the art equip­ment, tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced den­tal tools, and a highly skilled team of den­tists are more than suf­fi­cient to suc­cess­fully com­plete sur­gi­cal ex­trac­tions for spe­cial cir­cum­stances.

GAOC of­fers Odon­tec­tomy, which is the process of re­mov­ing a tooth that is par­tially or com­pletely em­bed­ded in the bone. In this pro­ce­dure, the den­tist will have to re­move the bone sur­round­ing the teeth be­fore pro­ceed­ing with the ex­trac­tion.

Orthodon­tics. Among teenagers the prospect of wear­ing braces is com­mon. Many adults wear den­tal braces, as well. Orthodon­tics fo­cuses on cor­rect­ing teeth align­ment through braces and re­tain­ers.

GAOC of­fers var­i­ous types that cater to ev­ery need: Me­tal Braces are pop­u­lar, while Ceramic Braces and Lin­gual Braces are the less no­tice­able op­tions. An­other al­ter­na­tive is to use Clear Align­ers, which con­sist of 18 to 30 cus­tom-made plas­tic align­ers that re­sem­ble mouth guards and are worn full-time, day and night ex­cept to eat, brush and floss the teeth.

GAOC has a clinic at the 3/F Seav­iew Wing, SM Sea­side City Cebu. To book an ap­point­ment, one may call (032) 410-9414 or 0917-840-4262, or by fol­low their Face­book, In­sta­gram, and Twit­ter ac­counts at /gaoc­den­tal, or visit their web­site at www. gaoc­den­tal.com for more in­for­ma­tion.
