With the discovery of better dental materials which are stronger and more aesthetic - Alpha Dental Group is committed to a minimally invasive approach where as much tooth structure as possible is retained. This is in line with the realization that an invasive approach weaken the tooth and lessens the longevity of restorations.

For various reasons -health and regulations - a no mercury restoration

COSMETIC SURGERY

Cosmetic options include veneers, crowns, bonding, implants.

Veneers are thin custom made porcelain laminates that are directly bonded to teeth. These are used to bridge gaps or to hide tooth discolorations.
Dental Bridges are false teeth fused between porcelain crowns (tooth caps) to fill gaps in the mouth.

RESTORATIVE SURGERY

(1) Minimally Invasive Dentistry
With the discovery of better dental materials which are stronger and more aesthetic- Alpha Dental Group is committed to a minimally invasive approach where as much tooth structure as possible is retained. This is in line with the realization that an invasive approach weakens the tooth and lessens the longevity of restorations.

(2) No mercury
For various reasons -health, worries regarding the mercury controversy, and regulations -non mercury restoration restorations are available.

DENTAL IMPLANT

Since the late 1980s Alpha Dental has been actively involved in implant dentistry- both the surgical and restorative aspects.

We have used and are still using various implant systems specially Nobel, Straumann, Ankylos, Zimmer, Ostem and even mini-implants depending on what's needed to achieve best result.

(1) Teeth -in -an-hour
This technique utilizing a patented software NobelGuide has been used in Alpha Dental to place implants and their restoration in about an hour in ideal cases.

(2) Immediate implants
At Alpha Dental we frequently place implants immediately into sockets after extraction.
The advantage of immediate or simultaneous placement of implants after extraction besides convenience, is less trauma to patient as only one surgical procedure is required.
Usually a temporary crown is placed during the same appointment and the permanent crown is placed on a subsequent visit.

(3) Adjunct implant procedures
Where there is insufficient bone volume to place implants, bone is harvested from the jaw bone( donor site) and grafted to where needed. At Alpha Dental grafting procedures using techniques initially learned by our implant practitioners from early grafting pioneers in the 1990s such as Americans Craig Misch and Charles Babush and the German F Khoury has enabled us to be at the forefront of these procedures.

BRACES

Since 1900 Alpha Dental Group has been straightening teeth with either metal or ceramic braces. However patient's preferences change and now Invisalign -straightening teeth without braces but with clear aligners, made possible with a sophisticated software and advance cad-cam machine. wheteher witbraces whether with ceramic or metal braces or even Invisalign is very much part

ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

At Alpha Dental, saving even seemingly hopeless teeth is a top priority.

Our 2 root canal specialists with at least 15 years experience are both trained in the USA - Dr Liu Hao Hsing from the North Western University in Chicago and Lesley Ang at the prestigious Pennsylvania University. With skilful usage of microscope technology and relevant diagnostic tests, we are confident that we will be able to accurately diagnose and alleviate pain complaints and symptoms with high efficacy.

PERIODONTONICS - GUM DISEASE TREATMENT

(1) Non Surgical Removal of plaque and calculus
The main cause of gum disease by the dentist using ultrasonic scalers and hand instruments followed by a program of close monitoring of oral hygiene.

(2) Surgical
When non surgical therapy is insufficient, a more invasive approach is required to arrest bone loss and regenerate bone. The optimal result is definite calculus removal and management of irregularities in bone.

ORAL SURGERY

Removal of teeth can be categorized into simple or surgical, depending on the tooth's position in the mouth, the extent of damage to the tooth, amount of tooth left ect. Usually performed under local anesthesia, extraction is commonly done due to:

  • Decay or infection
  • Severe gum disease
  • Fractured teeth
  • Need for space to straighten teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth

(1) Bone Grafting
The bone supporting teeth immediately resorbed or lose its volume once teeth are removed. This result in inadequate bone for implants. In Alpha Dental, bone grafting to increase bone volume have been carried out with good success, since the late 1990s. The donor site may be from various parts of the patient's jaw or with the joint consultation with external oral surgeons -from the hip.

(2) Sinus Lift
This is a routine procedure at Alpha Dental to increase bone volume in the maxilla-upper jaw to allow placement of implants.

(3) Cone Beam Computerised Scanning
Alpha Dental was the first private practice in Singapore to install and use the Kavo Exam for detailed 3 dimensional analysis of bone. This machine- the best known and used of its kind in the United States is crucial for patient safety in many complicated surgery and especially for the success of dental implants.

TEETH WHITENTING

Alpha Dental Teeth Whitening are of 2 techniques:

(1) Alpha In-Office Teeth Whitening
After isolating the teeth, a professional dental grade whitening agent is applied and light energy is used to accelerate the whitening process. This can take about an hour.

(2) Alpha Home Teeth Whitening
