Also implants can retain bridge for multiple missing teeth & dentures.


I do have a chipped /broken tooth but I don’t want to have my tooth pulled out. Is there any other treatment?

We always try to save the teeth and will try all possible treatments before extracting a tooth.


It depends how badly is the tooth damaged.


Iif the damage has reached the nerve space then we will consider root canal treatment, then build up the tooth & restore it with a cap.


Why is food getting stuck in between my teeth? How can I prevent it?

Sometimes food gets stuck in between the teeth because of broken or chipped filling, or gap between teeth or deep periodontal pockets.


Your dentist will examine the area, might need to take x-rays then will fix the cause accordingly either by replacing the unsatisfactory fillings or perform gum treatment.


Also your dentist will demonstrate the proper flossing technique & the correct use of the inter-dental brushes.

My partner hears me grinding at night, what shall I do? 

If you do grind at night, you might wake up with sore jaw; also you might experience   headaches, and more wear and tear on the teeth than is normal.


Therefore, your dentist might suggest wearing a night guard (occlusal splint) to wear at night so that the guard is worn down instead of your teeth.
