Other Services of Dental Clinics – Besides Teeth Cleaning
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:
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.
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.
