About the department
The Department of Dentistry at the Phuket Dental Signature Clinic offers the full range of services in the area of its specialization. The priorities of clinical practice include aesthetic dentistry, root canal treatment, tooth filling, placement of crowns, bridges, prosthetics, tooth alignment with braces and dental implantology. Of key importance is the compliance with the international standards for the sterilization of dental equipment and instruments. The department succeeds in all areas of its specialization and annually admits more and more patients who come here from all over the world.
The department is headed by Dr. med. Dr. med. dent. Ketkarn Sakultap. The doctor has a reputation as one of the best dentists in the country, and he is also a member of the American Board of Prosthodontics.
A distinctive feature of the department is a system of specialized admission of patients, in which an expert with relevant experience and qualification is involved in the treatment of each dental pathology. The services of the department's specialists in general dentistry include a wide spectrum, ranging from filling to root treatment, as well as the placement of crowns and veneers. In most cases, the doctors use in their clinical practice composite fillings, which correspond to the natural color of the tooth. Such materials are more progressive and strong, have a better aesthetic appearance, and also do not contain amalgam and metals.
The root canal treatment is aimed at the restoration and preservation of damaged or infected teeth by means of restoration of their pulp. Previously, if the tooth root was infected, the tooth was extracted. Nowadays, the advanced achievements of dentistry can solve this problem and preserve teeth for many years. After the treatment, the patients should avoid load on the tooth for some time – it may be sensitive to temperature or mechanical stimulation during the first days.
The department is the official advanced Dental Implant Center in Thailand. The specialists have successful experience in more than 10,000 implantological operations, including full repair of the dentition. The department's dentists transform smiles with the help of porcelain veneers, dental crowns. Also, they are recognized experts in teeth whitening.
The dental implants are used for the replacement of one or more missing teeth, as well as for complete dentition reconstruction. The department also offers a large selection of tooth restoration techniques. The implants of single teeth consist of a crown, which is placed on the implantable pin in the jaw. In the absence of several teeth, several single implants can be used or, if several adjacent teeth are missing, a bridge with fixation on the implants can be applied. In the absence of a dentition, the department's specialists offer several options, such as dental prostheses, bridges placed on implants, restoration of the entire dentition using All-on-4 technique. The type of treatment is determined individually for each patient, based on his individual needs and clinical picture.
Another department's focus is orthodontics. Orthodontic treatment involves the correction of malocclusion manifested by the incorrect position of the jaws or uneven gaps between the teeth. As a rule, such treatment is carried out using orthodontic braces or clear aligners (for example, the Invisalign clear aligners). The advantage of the last option is that it avoids the placement of braces and wire arcs. Invisalign is a removable, comfortable and clear system.
The department also offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry, starting with teeth whitening and ending with gum surgery. One of the options for cosmetic treatment is veneers – thin ceramic plates or onlays, which are usually placed on the outside of the front teeth in order to change the shape, size and color of the teeth, as well as to mask the gaps between the teeth or even correct the displaced teeth. Dental veneers are mainly used for smile makeover.
