If anyone needs Root Canal Treatment, Crowns or Bridges, please PM me.

You SHOULD exhibit the following symptoms that indicate you should be seeking treatment, whether with us, or not.

Root Canal Treatment

1. The tooth (usually front teeth) was exposed to some form of mechanical injury or trauma before (such as a punch, a fall etc) and is starting to turn black in colour.

2. You are experiencing pain when you eat or drink hot or cold food or drinks, or sweet stuff. The pain can be for a short while or for a long time after consumption. If you are experiencing pain that keeps you awake at night, it is high time you seek treatment.

3. You start to have a swelling in your gum next to a tooth (may or may not be painful) and you may start having funny tastes in your mouth.

Crowns

1. You have had a large restoration placed on a tooth and it keeps falling off after multiple replacements. It happens. It doesn't necessarily mean that your previous dentist is incompetent. It just means that the tooth can no longer retain the filling properly.

2. You have had root canal treatment done before but could not afford to complete the treatment as crowning was too expensive.

3. You are able to see that your tooth is very badly decayed.

Bridges


1. You have lost a few teeth for whatever reasons and there are spaces between the remaining teeth that you would like to fill up. Usually the front teeth for aesthetics reasons, and the back teeth for functional reasons.

2. You are wearing partial dentures that replace only a few teeth and you would like to have a more permanent solution.

This list is not exhaustive. If i think of more i will add it here.

It depends on what treatment you are looking for. Generally, we always need patients as a faculty. Just drop me a PM and tell me about what you are looking for

Hi, I'm interested in putting on braces. Does the school provide this service or is it only a diagnosis?

Yes the postgraduate students (those studying to become Orthodontists) will do the braces for you at a price of $2200 (thereabout). Undergrads will do the examination and diagnosis. If you are interested, you can PM me.
