Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana sees prevention of oral diseases as its major goal. That’s why we offer preventive dentistry services to keep dental decay, cavities, gum disease, and tooth infection at bay. We accomplish this by providing you with regular dental check-ups and exams, dental sealants and fluoride treatments, periodontal therapy, and night guards for teeth grinding. These preventive dentistry services works together to keep your smile feeling and functioning well.
Dental Check-ups and Cleaning:
The cornerstone of preventive dentistry is the twice-yearly dental check-ups and hygiene visits. During your check-ups and hygiene visits, we’ll inspect your teeth and gums thoroughly for any signs of damage, decay, or disease. We will use our intraoral cameras and digital X-ray technology to get a good look at your oral structures and give you a chance to see what’s going on with your oral health as well. We will thoroughly explain any findings and discuss treatment options if we find cavities, gum disease, or other problems. Once we’ve performed the dental exam, we’ll clean your teeth, removing all the plaque and tartar that you might’ve missed when brushing and flossing.
Dental Sealants and Fluoride Supplements:
Dental sealants and fluoride supplements are two preventive dentistry treatments that help you better avoid cavities. These are especially important for children, who haven’t yet gotten the hang of correct brushing and flossing routines. Dental sealants are plastic that covers the tops of molars to keep debris from getting into the crevices on the top of the tooth, and fluoride is a mineral that has been shown to strengthen tooth enamel. Because gum disease poses such a threat to your oral and overall health if it takes hold, we offer periodontal therapy for gum disease treatment as well. Contact Vista Dental Services to schedule your preventive dentistry visit with us. Located in Accra, Ghana, we serve all of Ghana, as well as patients from overseas. With preventive dentistry care from Vista Dental Services, you should be able to keep your smile healthy and strong.
What kinds of problems can your smile encounter? Cavities, broken teeth, root canal infections, missing teeth… these problems are relatively common, but they can all be fixed. With restorative dentistry, we can reverse the damage to your smile and bring it back to excellent health. Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana offers a comprehensive list of restorative care, from fillings to full-mouth reconstruction, in the hope that you can maintain a healthy smile throughout your entire life.
Crowns and Fillings.
Crowns and fillings are both used to repair damaged teeth. Fillings are used when damage is fairly contained and hasn’t affected more than 50% of the tooth. Our dental fillings are made from tooth-colored composite resin material, which is metal free and mercury free. Crowns are used when damage is more extensive. If your cavity has affected more than 50% of the tooth, the tooth is broken, or the tooth has been treated with root canal therapy, we’ll place a crown, which is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers your natural tooth. First, we’ll prepare your tooth, shaving away some of the tooth to make room for the crown. Then we’ll place your dental crown. This usually takes a couple of visits.

Of all the cosmetic dentistry services offered at Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana, teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most effective. It’s conservative – it doesn’t require lots of modifications or time spent in the dental office. You simply come in for your in-office laser whitening session or have us create a custom home whitening kit for you, and your smile will quickly appear brighter, whiter, and more attractive.
In-Office Laser Teeth Whitening
Our Accra dental office is equipped with laser teeth whitening, using modern technology to provide you with the ultimate in beautiful smile procedures. Laser teeth whitening uses laser light to activate the whitening process. A gel is applied to your teeth, and the light is then aimed at your teeth. You sit back in the dental chair for less than an hour while the laser teeth whitening work its magic. At the end of the session, your smile will be several shades whiter. You can also take home a personalized whitening kit for follow up whitening.
Sheer White! Whitening at Home
We also offer Sheer White! White strips for you to use for teeth whitening at home. With Sheer White!, you can avoid the discomfort and difficulty of tray take-home whitening while getting the same benefits.
At Vista Dental Services, we offer two different types of tooth replacement: fixed bridgework and removable full and partial dentures. Each has their own advantages, and what’s right for you depends on several factors. We’ll help you determine whether you’d like to replace your missing teeth with a fixed bridge or removable prosthesis.
Fixed bridges provide non-removable tooth replacement at our Accra, Ghana dental practice. Fixed bridges are stable and sturdy, and this form of tooth replacement will feel very natural. Replacement teeth are held in place by crowns that anchor to your remaining teeth. Once your bridge is in place, you can speak and eat with full function and without fear of anyone seeing the spaces left by your missing teeth or a removable dental prosthesis coming loose.
Dentures and Partials
A denture is a removable form of tooth replacement. Full dentures are used when all of your teeth are missing, and a partial denture is used if you still have some remaining teeth. Dentures and partials offer affordable tooth replacement that will often work when a fixed bridge is not an option. We want tooth replacement to be available to everybody, and dentures and partials provide an alternative that keeps this goal in reach for many.
The reasons to replace missing teeth include appearance, of course, but also include achieving optimal function, protecting the remaining teeth from shifting or being lost, and providing facial support. Missing teeth can actually cause the shape of your face to change, and if you’re missing teeth, you just can’t eat or speak as well as you once did. In fact, missing teeth can lead to poor nutrition if not replaced.
Patients can contact us to schedule an appointment. We would love to discuss your tooth replacement options with you and come up with a solution to your missing teeth problem. You are welcome to give us a call as well.
When someone smiles, you notice. And if their teeth look damaged, crooked, gapped, or stained, you notice that, too. People notice your smile as well, and that’s why you want it to look its best. But if you suffer from embarrassing smile problems like the ones listed before, you don’t have to give up on having an attractive smile. With cosmetic dentistry from Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana, you can get a smile makeover so that people only see how great you look whenever you smile.
What types of cosmetic dentistry services do we offer at Vista Dental Services?
Cosmetic Dental Bonding,
Porcelain Veneers and
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Cosmetic dental bonding is a great way for us to fix small problems with your otherwise nice-looking smile. If you have a single chip in a front tooth, we can repair the problem with composite resin material. This tooth-colored material is also used to create cosmetic-quality fillings, so you know its strong and durable, providing a cosmetic dentistry smile solution that will not only make you look better, but feel better as well.
Porcelain veneers and teeth whitening are both very popular cosmetic dentistry services offered at Vista Dental Services in Ghana. Our cosmetic dentists can completely makeover even the most damaged smiles using these procedures.
What is periodontal therapy?
Periodontal therapy is how we treat gum disease. We will thoroughly clean the pockets around your teeth, getting below the gum line to remove infection-causing bacteria. We will then smooth the tooth root. This makes the area less hospitable to bacteria and debris going forward, preventing recurrences of gum disease.
So how do you know if you need periodontal therapy? Ultimately, it’s extremely important that you visit our office regularly for preventive dentistry exams; sometimes there are no symptoms of gum disease. However, if any of these symptoms become a problem, visit our Accra, Ghana dental office as soon as possible:
Gum disease is extremely common – and extremely damaging to your oral and overall health. Not only can gum disease cause your gums to appear red and irritated (which is less than attractive) and lead to eventual tooth loss, but it can also affect the rest of your body as well. Gum disease can spread through the bloodstream, complicating gum disease and contributing to heart disease. Periodontal therapy offers a solution to gum disease, often saving smiles and preventing more serious complications.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
If it’s been a while since your last dental exam, or you’re experiencing symptoms of gum disease, contact Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana for an appointment. We serve patients from all around Accra and all over Ghana.
Most people have a few things they’d change about their smile. Chips, cracks, oddly shaped teeth, crookedness, stains, or gaps – any of these can threaten your sense of smile security. With porcelain veneers, Vista Dental Services makes changing your smile possible.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are crafted for you in a dental lab. These tooth-shaped shells are bonded to your teeth to transform the look of your smile. Our cosmetic dentists will take impressions of your teeth and send the information to the dental lab, where your porcelain veneers will be created. When your veneers come to us from the lab, you come in for a follow up visit, and we place the veneers. Porcelain veneers are used for your front teeth; if you have similar problems with back teeth, we can use porcelain crowns to cover them. Porcelain veneers can cover all of the problems listed previously, making them a great choice for anyone who suffers from multiple smile issues.
There’s no need for you to be embarrassed about your smile – there are too many cosmetic dentistry options available today, making it easy to get a new look. At Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana, we can combine porcelain veneers with other procedures including porcelain crowns, bonding, or teeth whitening to bring the smile of your dreams to life. Porcelain veneers offer durability and strength, too, so your smile can be functional as well as beautiful. Contact us to make an appointment with us to discuss porcelain veneers today.

Root Canal Therapy
The idea of root canal therapy tends to scare people, but this procedure has a lot of benefits and thanks to modern care techniques and technology, it’s not as uncomfortable as you might think.
The root canal is the passageway that runs from each tip of your tooth roots through the tooth. This is where your tooth nerve is located. Root canal therapy is called for when infection has reached the pulp in the root canal chamber. Infections like this can threaten the life of your tooth, eventually calling for extraction if untreated. Pain, sensitivity, and eventual abscess are side effects of root canal infections. With root canal therapy, we can clear up the infection and prevent more complicated problems.
During root canal therapy, the dentist will clear a way through the top of your tooth to the root canal. Through this opening, the dentist will then clean out infected pulp tissue, detoxifying the root canal chamber. A medication may be applied, and the chamber will be filled. A crown is placed on the tooth when the procedure is finished.
Vista Dental Services in Accra, Ghana provides root canal therapy to people from all over Ghana.
