Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and only removable by a dentist.
Teeth are extracted for a variety of reasons, such as decay reaching deep into the tooth, or the Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone.
Decay is not the only reason you may need a filling. Other reasons include cracked or broken teeth or teeth that are worn from unusual use such as tooth grinding.
DIGITAL X RAYS
We process Dental X-rays digitally. This enables us to keep x-ray exposure to patients as low as possible. The quality of the X-Rays images is superior to conventional X-rays.
Hygienist sessions can help people who have inflamed gum tissue around their teeth. This condition is caused by bacteria found in dental plaque and is easily treatable.
SCALING & POLISHING
We offer scaling and polishing as part of our hygienist treatment packages. Book in with our hygienist today to help maintain healthy gums and teeth.
Routine examinations in the past were carried out every 6 months. We now recommend carrying these out at more frequent intervals to minimise the risk of dental disease.
The initial consultation is used to gather as much information as possible in order to give you options for treatment and ensure we gain your informed consent before proceeding.
