General Dentistry Services/Family dentistry:


This is a service targeted towards the oral health needs of people at different stages of life. This service includes what is considered the ‘normal’ dental services by Nigerians. A service where you get your usual check-up and dental cleanings, sometimes with dental fillings thrown into the mix. The service also includes more specialized procedures like a crown replacement, bridge treatments, sealants, etc. 

Family dentistry services are essential, and indispensable, because of the possible oral treatment people receive at every stage of their life. This means children, who have dental needs vary differently from adults.

Endodontic service:

This is the type of service provided when the interior of a patient’s tooth is inflamed or diseased. Usually, for this kind of case, an endodontist is called upon to make a diagnosis of the tooth interior. The condition of the pulp will be the deciding factor for a root canal, a treatment used in getting rid of the diseased pulp at the center of a tooth. As the name implies, a hole is drilled through the top of the tooth to get to the diseased pulp, which is removed, followed by the cleaning of the empty internal cavity, after which it is filled and permanently sealed from the top. The root canal is usually the last measure, in it’s usually done to save the tooth. We can help you book an appointment if you think you need an endodontics service. All you need to do is click here
