Preventive dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to keep them healthy. This helps to avoid cavities, gum disease, enamel wear, and more. There are many forms of preventive dentistry, such as daily brushing and dental cleanings. To maintain optimal oral health, we recommend visits to the dentist at regular intervals determined by a dentist. These practices are designed to ensure that teeth are clean, strong, and white. Children should be taught proper oral hygiene at an early age.
Dental crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken-down teeth. A crown strengthens your existing, damaged tooth to preserve its functionality. Fillings help restore teeth, which were damaged by decay, back to their normal function. White fillings are made of a composite material. Dental bridges are appliances used to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made from three pieces that fit into the open space between teeth, “bridging” the gap.
Our hygienist will be able to advise you on everything from treating bad breath to how to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly and effectively. The role of our hygienist is to help prevent dental disease. For children, fissure sealants are a safe and painless way of protecting your children’s teeth from tooth decay.
Another term for a Specialist Root Canal Treatment is Endodontics. An endodontist is a specialist in root canal treatment. A patient can choose to have a root canal treatment if they have developed pain in a tooth or an infection has begun inside a tooth. Sometimes this can be very painful, however, we can assure you that a root canal treatment is totally painless. The process cleans and sterilises the inside of a tooth and then a special rubber filling is placed in the tooth to prevent an infection developing in the future.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment used to straighten teeth with a series of clear strong medical grade non-toxic plastic aligners. These aligners are custom made to move your teeth little by little and each tiny shift takes you a step closer to your ideal smile.
Composite bonding is a modern way to restore teeth, either for cosmetic reasons, or to build up tooth structure that has been lost. It involves bonding a tooth coloured resin material to existing teeth to reshape them or improve their colour.
Composite veneers are a really modern and conservative way to improve a patient smile. We use a resin composite to build directly onto your existing tooth structure, layering it over your teeth.
Essix retainers are a type of orthodontic retention device used to protect the results of your braces or clear aligner treatment. They are a set of clear, removable plastic retainers, and you will wear them nightly following your treatment.
Vivera retainers are clear retainers used to protect the results of Invisalign treatment. They look like Invisalign aligners and are made of the same premium-grade SmartTrack material, but they are designed to keep teeth in place, not move them. They are thicker than Invisalign aligners because they are designed for long-term use: a single set can last for several years when cared for properly. These come in a set of three. Your prescription is stored on the invisalign website in which you will not have to get moulds done each time you need a new retainer.
A bonded retainer, also known as a permanent retainer, is a type of metal retainer wire that is glued to the back of your teeth. They are typically placed on the lower teeth from canine to canine, but are also placed behind the upper teeth in certain situations.
