Routine Dental Check ups
At our clinic we undertake a detailed examination of the patient’s dental health and hygiene status and we will discuss any potential issues with the patient. Any patient’s issues or concerns will be taken into consideration and we will work closely with the patient to find the right solutions.
We will also provide the patient with information and advice, including how to clean, floss, and use mouthwash effectively.
Top Class Dental Hygiene
Patients will benefit from effective cleaning techniques that remove tartar, plaque and especially stains, including scaling and polishing for both normal and sensitive teeth.
Stains such as tea, coffee, wine, and smoking sensitively removed
Fissure sealants are recommended for children as soon as their permanent molars and premolars erupt.Children’s pits and fissure (grooves) on the biting surface of their teeth tend to be deep and hard to clean. If these are not cleaned correctly, it can lead to cavities. To prevent food trapping in these grooves and to aid in cleaning, fissure sealants are recommended.A fissure sealant is a material (usually a plastic resin) which is applied to the biting surface of teeth to fill the pits and fissure (grooves).
This has been a very successful preventative measure for childhood cavities as the sealant acts as a barrier by protecting the enamel from plaque and acids.
There are many reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted. Whatever the reason, we will ensure the procedure is comfortable and pain-free. A strong local anaesthetic is used to completely numb the tooth and the surrounding tissues prior to the tooth removal. This numbness will last anywhere from 2 hours to 6 hours!
Patient will be advised on the best treatment to replace the removed tooth/teeth.
A dental emergency not only refers to tooth pain but other issues surrounding the tissues in the mouth which may need to be given immediate attention. Examples of dental emergencies include, but are not limited to, infections, fractured tooth or dental restoration.
White Tooth Fillings
Fillings are an effective and easy way of preventing further damage to a decayed or broken tooth. Fillings work by adding a tough material to an area to help strengthen the decayed tooth and prevent any further damage being caused. Every patients teeth are a unique shade of white. That is why we match every filling shade to the patients specific tooth colour.
Previously, many dentists used amalgam filling material to restore teeth.These fillings were black/silver in colour and proved to be quite unsightly. It is commonplace to replace these old fillings with more aesthetically pleasing white/tooth coloured restorations.
