Dental health and preventive dentistry
Food and lifestyle affect the rate at which gums and teeth deteriorate and teeth get stained. Elite Dental Clinic provides advise on keeping teeth and gums strong and healthy. Dentists at Elite stress the importance of developing healthy eating habits. Regular dental checkups are also advised.
The dentists at Elite Dental Clinic are specialised in treating children and providing dental care that helps prevent tooth decay. Elite encourages parents to arrange regular dental check-ups for their children – at least every six months. Studies show that poor oral health care in children can lead to impaired school performance and poor social relationships.
Elite has a special dental surgery kitted out for children – to help keep them relaxed and co-operative whilst the dentist examines them and treats them.
Corporate social responsibility
Elite Dental Clinic offers dental and oral healthcare to vulnerable children, as well as other underprivileged members of society. It also supports community-based campaigns aimed at raising awareness about oral hygiene.
Elite Dental Clinic offers many options in orthodontic care for patients of all ages! Their services include braces (metal or clear), removable appliance treatment (retainers to hold or to move the teeth), and Invisalign. Experienced and highly-trained orthodontists render treatment ranging from simple tooth alignment to complete multi-disciplinary cases involving implants and jaw surgery.
Getting orthodontic treatment as early as possible is a good idea, because the teeth and jaws of children and young teens are not as fully developed as an older adult. Elite understands that each patient they serve has his or her own needs and desires. That is why their team ensures to always have the perfect service or treatment for them!
Treatments and services offered by Elite Dental Care include:
Elite Dental Clinic is able to carry out dental radiographs (dental X-rays) that help the dentists diagnose problems and plan treatments. X-rays show detailed images of the upper and lower teeth and the supporting bones, highlighting decay between teeth and changes in the thickness of bone caused by gum diseases.

A new artificial tooth is securely fitted to a small titanium post which is implanted into the jawbone. The result is improved appearance, speech, comfort and oral health, it also makes eating easier.
