Bad breath, bleeding and sore gum
At iSmile we believe your gum health is the key for a healthy fresh mouth. Redness , swelling, bleeding and bad smell can all be signs for gum disease(gingivitis). If you notice any discomfort or bleeding when you brush or floss it can be an indication of underlying gum problem which needs to be addressed sooner than later to prevent it from getting worse.
If left untreated this gum disease can progress into a more aggressive form which is called (peridontitis) which involves a deeper infection inside the gum which eats the bone and the supporting tissues away and eventually causing tooth loss.
Our clinicians are very experienced in prevention, early detection and treatment of these gum diseases and can help you regaining your gum health and retaining your teeth for as long as possible.
Patient comfort is very important to us and that’s why we use the latest dental equipments which makes gum treatment a much more comfortable experience than before.

Broken and chipped teeth
Broken and chipped teeth can result because of trauma, tooth decay or teeth grinding.
Treatment options can be either a direct restoration ( filling), inlay, onlay or a crown ( cap)
They can be used used when the broken part of the tooth is small and can be done in tooth colored materials which not only fix your tooth to the normal shape and strength but also improve the appearance of your smile. At iSmile our dentists are passionate about conservative dentistry so we do tooth colored restorations (composite resin) on the front and the back teeth as they require less tooth removal during preparation and preserve the remaining tooth structure.
These materials requires experience and artistry and our dentists are keeping up to date through continuing education in this field and using the latest techniques and materials.
When the tooth is moderately broken an inlay or onlay might be indicated instead of restoration to help protect and strengthen the back teeth which need to be strong to withstand the pressure generated by chewing and at the same time restore the appearance of the tooth as the used material is matched to the tooth color.
It takes two visits to be completed and they don’t need replacing for many years.
When the tooth is severely broken or has extensive filling a crown is the best way to protect and strengthen the tooth and bringing the tooth back to normal function.
This treatment helped saving a lot of teeth which otherwise would have been extracted and it involves preparing the tooth and the removal of all the existing filling and decay then the crown is placed to cover and protect the tooth and new filling.
Crown material can be fabricated form porcelain to match you teeth color and restore the look of your natural bright smile.

If you experience any pain from the teeth it could be originating from the dental nerve inside the tooth and should be checked to prevent further complications such as abscess formation and severe pain.
Some of the symptoms which might indicate a nerve problem are:
– sensitivity to hot or cold which lingers
– pain on biting on the tooth
– sensitivity to sweets
– spontaneous pain which is not related to eating or drinking
– swelling in the gum next to the painful tooth
