Root Canal Treatment
JDC is the only clinic in Guyana offering laser assisted root canal treatment. In our quest to provide international quality treatment, our team possesses one of the only licensed certified Endodontist in Guyana!
Root canal therapy can often effectively treat a tooth that has become damaged by decay and infection. Along with standard sterilizing agents and laser techniques to disinfect and seal a tooth during a root canal, the use of bio acceptable materials penetrate into the tiny tubules in the root(s) of the tooth, effectively killing bacteria, dissolving organic matter, and promoting prompt healing. If you suffer with an acute toothache or have been informed that you need a root canal, visit us for a comprehensive evaluation and consultation.
Our goal: we want you to keep your own teeth as much as possible. However, in some cases, extraction can become necessary. We would explain the entire procedure, and make sure that you are comfortable during your visit. We pride ourselves at providing pain free dental experiences. Need to have that troublesome third molar removed? That fractured/grossly carious tooth removed? We have you covered!
Also known as Composite Resins – Teeth with cavities are filled using superior tooth coloured restorative filling materials, which results in more natural looking “fillings.”
Dental Lasers make painless dentistry a reality. It is a miracle tool when it comes to handling soft tissues. It cuts and dissolves soft tissue with minimal bleeding and scaring, allowing for a much shorter recovery time; it can remove “black gums,” treat periodontal pockets, do crown lengthening, etc. Available only at JDC!
Jagan Dental Centre is one of Guyana’s leading Dental Implant Centres. JDC’s implant clinic in Georgetown provides quality dental implant services that bring the confidence back into your smile. Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don’t want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, talk to us to see if dental implants are an option for you.
Reversing Gum Disease
We offer the most technologically advanced gum disease treatments in Guyana. Dental lasers for gum diseases are the latest treatment modality that can treat gum diseases painlessly/non surgically. We can reverse gum disease without surgery, even in advanced cases of periodontitis. We will professionally clean your teeth below the gum line, and train you how to effectively clean your own teeth and gum pockets at home using special tools available.
Treatment of TMJ Disorders
If you grind your teeth, regularly experience temporal headaches, or your jaws and upper shoulders are often sore, you may suffer from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
To maintain optimal oral health, you must maintain a diligent dental care regimen. On top of proper home care, it is highly recommended that you visit our office every six months for checkups and cleanings. We provide gentle, regular dental cleanings, as well as deep cleanings to prevent and treat gum disease. We regularly monitor the pocket depths on our periodontal patients and review home care techniques. Our preventive care also includes dental fluoride applications, and sealants to protect teeth from bacteria and decay.
Crowns and Bridges
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.
A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
Bridges can help restore your smile.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth and help to restore your smile. Weather you’ve lost a single tooth or all of your natural teeth, replacing them will benefit your appearance and your health. Dentures make it easier for you to eat and speak better than you could without teeth.
When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile, and are made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.
Cost effective, comfortable, strong, acrylic dentures. Both Partial, as well as, Complete dentures are offered at our clinic.
This procedure is called chairside bleaching and usually requires only one office visit. The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth, and all the years of staining with tea, coffee, and red wine etc. is removed in a matter of an hour; revealing truly white teeth that enhances the perfection of a smile. We use the Philips Zoom teeth whitening system.
A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth which helps to improve the aesthetics of your smile, and/or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain.
Teeth Cleaning and Polishing
The main cause of periodontal disease is accumulation of bacterial plaque. Using manual hand scalers, industry standard Ultrasonic scalers, “prophy blasts” and fluorinated pumice for polishing, we’ll have your teeth and gums looking and feeling nice and fresh in no time!
Fluoride Application for Kids
The topical application of fluoride is a generally recommended treatment for children through the age of eighteen and can also be used to treat adults “at-risk” for dental cavities. Topical fluoride strengthens the teeth once they have erupted by seeping into the outer surface of the tooth enamel, making the teeth more resistant to decay. Dentists and dental hygienists generally recommend that children have a professional application of fluoride twice a year during dental check-ups.
Remember, fluoride alone will not prevent tooth decay! It is important to brush at least twice a day, floss regularly, eat balanced meals, reduce sugary snacks, and visit your dentist on a regular basis.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
With age comes wisdom. ..wisdom teeth!
Like the rest of your body, your mouth goes through many changes in your lifetime. One major dental milestone that usually takes place between the ages of 17 and 21 is the appearance of your third molars or wisdom teeth. When they come out correctly, healthy wisdom teeth can help you chew, but when they don’t it can be a very painful situation. If there isn’t enough space for them to surface or they come up in the wrong position, you may need to have them extracted.. Talk to us! Let us advise you on your options!
