At St. Charles dental clinic, Drs Nguyen, Quach, Tran and Toussi offer a full range of general treatments such as prevention, fillings, root canals, gum treatment, surgery, crown and bridge, partial and complete denture, one hour tooth whitening, EMERGENCY SERVICE, etc.
Prevention: We recommend a scaling and polishing every six months to prevent gingivitis (gum inflammation) and tartar buildup at the root of the tooth. With frequent scaling (every three to four months) is suggested for patients suffering from gum disease (periodontitis). For children, we recommend sealants on the surface of teeth to prevent the formation of cavities on them.
Filling: We can replace your old gray fillings often defective by new white composite resin fillings. The old metal fillings are not only attractive, they also tend to damage the teeth over time: these fillings can be detached teeth, creating a seal (space between the filling and enamel) thus allowing bacteria to infiltrate and cause a recurrence of cavities. In addition, these gray fillings can cause an expansion and thus cause a fracture / breaking out of the enamel. The new white composite resin can be bonded directly to the teeth by creating a very tight seal. These composite fillings will prevent further decay and seem so natural that you'd be difficult to differentiate your natural enamel!
Root canal treatment (endodontic treatment): When decay has infected pulp (nerve) of the tooth or tooth abscess this, it needs a treatment of endodontics. The root canal is to make an opening through the tooth, remove the nerve, cleaning, drain (in cases of infections with pus), or disinfect the root (s) and sealing them with a thermoplastic bio-compatible material. The tooth becomes devitalised hence the need thereafter to strengthen the tooth with a swivel and a crown. For an emergency, you could join us from Monday to Saturday, day and evening.
Gum Treatment: When teeth have a disease of the supporting tissues (gum and bone) we recommend curettage of the roots. Destruction of the bone around the tooth will cause a premature loss of teeth. The treatment invlove removing the tartar and bacterial infections all around the root under the gum and infected gum. The treatment will prevent any progression and bone resorption caused by the disease.
Surgery: We offer a full range of extraction of wisdom teeth, gum graft (autograft and allograft, see Gum plastic surgery section), bone graft (see Implantology), sinus elevation and grafting (see Implantology), clinical crown lengthening, etc. For PAIN OR EMERGENCY of wisdom teeth, you could count on us Monday through Saturday, day and evening.
Bridge and crown: When a tooth is devitalised (post root canal), severely damaged by decay, fractured or discolored, we recommend capping the tooth with a porcelain crown to strengthen it. Our porcelain crowns are high quality virtually indistinguishable from adjacent teeth, and they provide a completely natural feeling. When one or more teeth are missing, we can replace them with the help of a bridge. All these restorations are fixed andthat for many years.
Partial and complete denture: When several teeth are missing, we can replace them with a removable partial denture. In case all the teeth of an arch are missing, we can replace them with a complete removable denture. We recommend the replacement of prostheses every 5 years, since the residual bone is not supported by natural teeth, an is resorbed over the years. These prostheses can also be fixed on implants (see Section Implantology) where retention is poor and / or inadequate; resorption due to a residual Advanced ridges (bone and gum remainder of the jaw).
