Stomatology refers to the branch of medical science that focuses on the mouth, its nearby structures, and the disorders and diseases thereof. Stomatology lies at the interface between the practices of medicine and dentistry, and thus encompasses dentistry as a healthcare practice. General dentistry refers to the practice of dentistry generally, which relates primarily to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health.
Our stomatology and general dentistry services include, amongst others, examination and diagnosis, treatment planning, scaling, polishing, fluoride treatment, fillings and extractions as well as treatments for dentine hypersensitivity (sensitive teeth) and patient education.
Most of our dental centres are equipped with dental X-ray facilities, some with cone beam computer tomography (“CBCT”), panoramic X-rays and lateral cephalometric X-rays. CBCT allows cross-sectional images to be obtained, and the data can be used to construct a three-dimensional (3D) image of teeth and oral-facial skeletal structure. A panoramic X-ray is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. A lateral cephalometric X-ray shows the side view of the head.
