An integral part of good general health is the maintenance of healthy teeth, in order to prevent dental decay, gum disease and many other dental disorders.

To achieve high standard in dental health, our approach is two fold:

  1. General Dental Care - in the form of regular routine dental examinations, routine fillings to prevent further dental disease, basic cleaning and x-rays (as needed) to identify potential dental disease early.
  2. Preventative Dental Care - in the form of oral hygiene instructions and diet advice, fissure sealants and fluoride therapy for those high risk patients.

 

Routine Dental Examination

- We routinley update your medical historyto ensure you have the safest treatment possible.

- We will endavour to address your concerns.

- We will also undertake Oral Cancer Screening of your soft tissues and check the healthof your restorations and teeth.

- Finally we will provide you with any x-rays needed or dental health advice you may need and formulate a treatment plan to manage your clinical need.

Routine Fillings

-  These can be Amalgam (silver) or Composite (white) in colour depending on type of tooth and condition

- These are used to restored teeth which have been damaged through for example decay, abrasion or fracture. As well as restore older fillings due to wear and tear.

X-rays

- These are pictures of teeth. They can sometimes help us diagnosis dental diseases, especially when not readily seen in the mouth.

Fissure Sealants

- This is a procedure which reduces and prevent dental decay on the chewing surfaces of otherwise healthy children’s permanent teeth.

- The procedure is short and simple. It doesn’t involve cutting the tooth, rather a protective layer is used to cover and seal the clean and unstained pits and fissures on the chewing surface of Children’s permanent teeth.

- We recommend this procedure whenever appropriate, as soon as the permanent teeth erupt sufficiently to be isolated and sealed well.

Fluoride Therapy

- This is used mainly to prevent decay in high risk patients or control rampant decay until restorative treatments can be carried out.

- This involves applying fluoride to the teeth either topically through for example; gels, varnishes and toothpaste or systemically through fluoridated water or tablets.
