  • Routine Dental Examinations and Cleaning


    A dental exam usually involves the removal of plaque or tartar (calculus) which are major contributors to cavities and gum disease. An examination will enable the dentist to assess any potential problems early on which can mean a more successful and simple treatment. During an examination a set of dental radiographs (x-rays) maybe taken. This allows the dentist to check areas under fillings and between teeth that are not otherwise visible. An examination is an ideal time to ask any questions about possible treatments or about tips on caring for your teeth at home.



  • Periodontal (Gum) care


    Periodontitis is the destructive form of gum disease and it is not reversible. However it can be treated and stabilised. You can prevent gum disease by brushing twice daily, flossing once a day and visiting your dentist regularly.


  • Fillings


    A filling involves the removal of any soft, infected part of the tooth. This is done in such a way as to keep as much healthy solid tooth as possible. There are a several different filling materials available. Some materials are more suitable than others in different areas of the mouth. Discuss with your dentists which material is most appropriate for you.



  • Root Canal Treatment


    At the core of a tooth is the nerve and blood supply, known as the dental pulp. The space in which the dental pulp rests is known as the root canal and pulp chamber. The dental pulp can become damaged which can cause a toothache or an infection (dental abcess). In order to retain the tooth a root canal treatment is required. The first step is to clean out the damaged dental pulp from the root canal and chamber. Next the canal is shaped and thoroughly cleaned. Finally the canal is sealed with a root filling and the top of the tooth is restored.
