About the department

The Department of Dentistry at the Bangkok International Dental Center offers the full range of modern services in this field. Of particular interest are implantology and aesthetic dentistry. The department has advanced medical technologies, including digital panoramic and cephalometric radiography, computerized 3D CT scanning, intraoral cameras, Carl Zeiss microscopes, etc. All of these devices provide the accurate diagnostics, effective planning and treatment, as well as the best possible safety for the patient. The key to successful clinical practice is also the high competence of the dental team. Many of the department’s dentists underwent board certification of the specialized American Societies. The department is headed by Dr. med. Dr. med. dent. Somkiat Aimplee.

In the field of general dentistry, the department specializes in general diagnostics, scaling, polishing and filling. In order to make an accurate diagnosis, the doctors perform informative diagnostic procedures. Scaling (or prevention of dental calculus formation) is part of professional teeth cleaning. Polishing is used to make the surface of the teeth more resistant to plaque and to the accumulation of other foreign substances. It is used as a preventive measure for tooth pathology. In addition, the department's team regularly performs dental fillings using the very latest technologies and materials.

The department’s key focus is aesthetic dentistry. This field covers a large number of procedures, which improve dental health and the appearance of a smile. The range of aesthetic dentistry includes teeth whitening, the placement of veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays/onlays, photopolymer fillings, and teeth alignment. In some cases, aesthetic dentistry procedures are combined with other dental services in order to achieve the optimal results.

The department's experts have particular experience in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery. The modern diagnostic technologies, including digital CT scanning and radiography, are applied here. The dentists mostly perform the procedures for teeth extraction, including a wisdom tooth, bone augmentation procedures, implant placement, preprosthetic preparation and orthodontic interventions. In particular, the placement of implants is carried out in two stages. At the first stage, the pin of the implant is fixed in the jawbone, whereas the second, non-surgical stage involves the placement of a new artificial crown on the pin. In the case of bone tissue deficiency, bone augmentation is carried out. It should be noted that bone tissue has the capability for total regeneration, provided that the necessary free space for normal growth is available.

Dental implantology occupies one of the central positions in the department's clinical practice. This field is distinguished by outstanding treatment successes, advanced experience and increased popularity among patients. The department uses three types of implantation. These include conventional, immediate implantation, as well as immediate loaded implantation. The type of implantation is determined depending on the needs and general dental condition of the patient. A panoramic radiography or CT scanning are applied for the assessment of the volume of bone tissue, determination of the placement area and accurate diagnostics. As a rule, conventional implantation is a more universal technique and is suitable for most patients. In case of bone deficiency, the optimal solution is its preliminary augmentation.

As of today, the use of dental implants is a widespread practice. This is due to several advantages of using implants as compared to other restoration techniques of a tooth or dentition in case of severe damage. In the case of treatment by means of implants, the patient receives several advantages, such as the improvement of the quality of life, natural appearance of teeth, preservation of the teeth adjacent to the implant, strength and durability of the implants, speech improvement, increased comfort as compared to removable dentures, prevention of further tooth loss, oral health and lack of psychological discomfort caused by the possibility of displacement or loss of removable dentures.

Also, the scope of ​​competence of the department's doctors includes orthodontic dentistry. The position of healthy teeth can be adjusted at any age. However, some factors (for example, insufficient jaw size) in adults can complicate the process of surgical planning. In such cases, close cooperation between orthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, periodontist, endodontist and dental therapist is required in order to develop an optimal treatment plan, which takes into account all the patient's needs. The department's specialization also includes the full range of periodontal and endodontic dentistry services. For better planning, improvement of safety and provision of long-term results, the dentists use such modern medical devices as endodontic microscopes, root apex locators, endodontic micromotors, endodontic obturation systems, etc.
