World-Class Dental Services Supported by Advanced Medical Imaging Techniques
Dentistry is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area.
Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular joints (the hinges connecting the jaw to the skull) and other supporting structures.
The majority of dental treatments are carried out to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are dental caries (tooth decay) and periodontal disease (gum disease or pyorrhea).
Euracare has partnered with Life Healthcare Ghana Ltd., operator of 3 dental clinics in Accra, to deliver world-class dental services, with a focus on the following procedures:
- Imaging-based examinations & checkups
- Cleaning and preventative care
- Restorative (fillings, crowns, bridges)
- Prosthetic (dentures)
- Endodontic (root canal) therapy
- Periodontal (gum) therapy
- Tooth extraction
For maximum accuracy, Euracare’s dental team relies on an advanced 3D digital panoramic dental X-ray machine, which is the only such machine in Ghana.
Euracare’s dental team encourages prevention of oral diseases through proper hygiene and regular, twice yearly, checkups for professional cleaning and evaluation. Oral infections and inflammations may affect overall health and conditions in the oral cavity may be indicative of systemic diseases, such as osteoporosis, diabetes, celiac disease or cancer. Many studies have also shown that gum disease is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and preterm birth. The concept that oral health can affect systemic health and disease is referred to as “oral-systemic health”.
In conjunction with Euracare’s team of Ghanaian and internationally-trained nurses and radiology & laboratory technicians, the dentist ensures that patients are kept safe and comfortable at all times during the procedures.
Special attention is given to infection control. The dental unit is equipped with a state of the art disinfector machines to ensure sterilization is conducted according to international norms and standards. As a further safety measure, all instrumentation used is disposable.
