You can rely on us to take care of your dental health and your smile, wherever you are in Singapore.
Plaque and tartar can form even if you brush and floss regularly. Built up plaque and tartar is best removed by a dentist with professional dental instruments.
We recommend that you visit the dentist once or twice a year for dental scaling and polishing. Scaling is a routine procedure done to remove stubborn tartar and plaque build-up from below the gum line. After scaling, we will polish your teeth with a polishing paste and a rotating rubber cup (similar to an electric toothbrush), to improve the appearance of your teeth and remove bacteria.
This will help improve your oral health, clean surface stains from coffee, tea, red wine or tobacco use, and in the long run, reduce the risk of gingivitis, gum disease and dental decay.
You will leave us feeling clean, fresh and looking forward to the next appointment in just a few months!
Fillings can help to replace tooth structure that has been lost to decay or damage. For example, if a small piece of your tooth is chipped, fillings can repair and restore it to a normal function and appearance and stop further decay by providing a barrier against bacteria.
Fillings can also be used to close up small gaps between teeth and make them look symmetrical. We use a variety of materials such as amalgam, composite resin, and glass ionomer cement, which will look and feel just like your natural teeth.
If your teeth are affected by advanced gum disease, deep cracks, or are deeply decayed, it is likely that other treatments cannot preserve your teeth, and we may recommend having them extracted instead.
Alternatively, if you are about to start on dental braces, we may also recommend tooth extraction to create space and allow for better alignment of your teeth.
Rest assured that any extraction process will begin with an expert diagnosis and treatment plan.
Teeth grinding, or clenching, can wear down tooth enamel over time, and even lead to fractured teeth.
Mouth guards can help prevent further damage to your teeth. They are designed and customised to fit over either the upper or lower teeth. This will effectively prevent your upper and lower teeth from touching, and absorb impact between them.
Depending on when you tend to grind or clench your teeth, we will also recommend that you wear it at night, or even during the day. They are especially helpful during contact sports, by protecting your teeth from impact.
Our mouth guards will be just as thick as you need them in the right areas, and combine resilience with comfort. They should not interfere with speaking and breathing.

NTUC Denticare is accredited by the Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) as a day surgery facility. Patients who are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents of Singapore may be able to claim a portion of their surgical expenses from their Medisave Account. The exact amount would depend on the complexity of the procedure.
All our extractions are performed under anaesthetic. As such, you should not experience significant discomfort, even after the procedure. We also provide painkillers where necessary.
You can expect the initial healing process to take at least 2 weeks, but most swelling and bleeding should stop within 1-2 days after the procedure. If the bleeding does not stop after this period of time, you can take some steps to address it on your own, such as biting firmly on gauze for 15 to 20 minutes. If this does not stop the bleeding, give us a call immediately, and we will arrange for a check-up.
You can also reduce swelling and pain, such as using ice packs, followed by a warm compress to prevent a sore and stiff jaw.
A blood clot usually forms at the site of the tooth extraction, serving as a protection over the underlying bone and nerve endings in the empty tooth socket. Avoid smoking, using a straw, and any vigorous activity for the first two weeks. These activities could disrupt the blood clot, which in turn can cause more bleeding or painful inflammation, overall disrupting the healing process.
