Most regular patients see our dentists once a year. Finding problems when they are small and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums saves difficult, expensive treatment later.
We try to keep appointments open so that you can be seen promptly and have those painful problems dealt with.
We have used the composite (white) fillings ever since the technology become completely reliable. The old amalgam (Mercury) fillings have been going out of favour with the public for years.
An extraction is the last resort for a tooth that can’t be saved and a predictable option for a painful tooth in an emergency.
Inside a tooth is a fine space called the root canal. This contains nerves and blood vessels. If this tissue becomes diseased or dies, pain and infections will occur. Root canal treatment cares for these teeth.
Advice is given about home care and treatment of the gums to prevent the progress of periodontal disease. This is essential maintenance for the long life of your teeth and gums.
Whiten teeth fast with the advanced zoom whitening system. Feel good and look great with a whiter smile.
Tooth shaped caps which fit over your own teeth. Used to cosmetically improve and strengthen heavily filled and root filled teeth. Help you keep your own teeth.
Loosing teeth is not something anyone wants to do. Immediate dentures are planned and constructed with the intention of placing them in your mouth immediately the teeth are removed. This deals with the embarrassing appearance problems loosing teeth causes.
Am implant is like an artificial tooth root. A crown, bridge or denture can be attached to an implant. This is an excellent way of replacing teeth as other healthy teeth are not involved.
