Oral Medicine / Surgery

Your dentist would advise you of any oral conditions / disease detected during your check-up.

Some common oral conditions:

Cysts
Cysts are fluid filled sacs. They can either occur in the soft tissue like the lip, or in the hard tissue of the jaw bone. These cysts are benign and they are usually surgically removed.

White lesions (Leucoplakia)
White lesions are often seen in the oral mucosa of the cheek, gums, tongue or lip. They may a result of constant trauma or irritation. Although most of them are benign, a small number of lesions can be pre-cancerous. Excisional biopsy is usually recommended to ascertain the nature of the lesion.

Oral manifestation of medical conditions
On examination, the oral cavity may exhibit manifestations of underlying systemic disease and serve as an indicator of overall health. Systemic diseases with oral findings include autoimmune, hematologic, endocrine, and neoplastic processes.

Lichen Planus, a net-like lesion of the oral mucosa, may be attributed to an autoimmune condition. Autoimmune systemic conditions may manifest as oral ulcerations, changes in the salivary and parotid glands, and changes in the tongue.

If the salivary glands are affected, they may produce less saliva and this leads to a condition known as dry mouth. In patients with dry mouth, the teeth are at a high risk of developing caries and the dentist should monitor the incidence of dental caries more closely. The dry mucosa is also more prone to ulcers.

Patients with gastroesophageal reflux and eating disorders may present with erosions of the enamel and dentine of the teeth. Patients may also complain of oral pain or halitosis (bad breath).

The ORAL Concept

Options and Optimization

For our patients, we discuss treatment options and the clinical approach to be taken for their treatment needs, before finalizing their treatment plan. We practice the philosophy of optimal dentistry, which we believe will benefit our patients for the long term.

Restoration

We are committed to restoring periodontal health as well as restoring the form and function of teeth for our patients. Very often it will require a multi-pronged approach. These include the control of caries, periodontal disease and root canal infections, as well as the reinforcement and replacement of teeth.

Aesthetics

Much consideration goes into the aesthetic outcome of the restorations. Often, it’s not only about the tooth and nothing but the tooth, you’ll be amazed how the appearance of the teeth can have a huge impact on facial aesthetics.

Longevity

We strive to maintain your oral health and aim to save as many of your teeth and have your restorations serve you for a long time to come. The goal of professional dental care is so that you as a patient can derive overall holistic health for life as a result of good oral hygiene and healthy masticatory function. Oral health maintenance should be done via regular dental checks biannually and any disease patterns can be detected early.
