This is the assessment, diagnosis and management of dental disease and subsequent rehabilitation of the teeth to functional and aesthetic state. This encompases a wide range of highly skilled procedures, such as endodontics (root canal treatment), crowns, bridges and dentures.

Having a highly skilled and professional team, each with their own area of interest, we are able to provide a wide range of high standard dental treatments in a friendly and caring manner.

 

Endodontics (root canal treatment)

- This procedure aims to eliminate the infection within the core tissue (the pulp) of teeth when they become non-vital. The infection occurs through a number of reasons, such as decay, leaking fillings, fractures or trauma, for example a fall.

- During root canal treatment, the bacteria causing the infection are cleaned and the root canal is disinfected and filled. According to current recommendations, the tooth is then sealed with a crown.

- Contrary to common believe, root canal treatment is not painful in the majority of cases as it’s carried out under local anaesthetic. It also has a high success rate when carried out properly.

 

Crowns

- These are dental restorations which cap or encircles a tooth which is badly broken or have a large filling which threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are also recommended for root canal treated teeth.

- Crowns improve the strength of teeth and can be made from a number of different materials, including up to date materials such as All Ceramic crowns (metal free).

 

Bridges

- These restorations can replace a missing tooth/teeth by permanently joining a false tooth/teeth to the adjacent teeth or dental implants through crown restorations.

- Like crowns, bridges can be made from a number of different materials and there are also different types of bridges suited for a number of clinical situations.

 

Dentures

- Also known as ‘false teeth’. Dentures are prosthetic restorations constructed to replace a number of missing teeth. They are usually supported by soft tissue, but can also be supported by the remaining teeth within the mouth or dental implants.

- There are different types of dentures available, such as Acrylic (plastic), Cobalt/Chrome (metal) or Valplast (flexible). Our team are more than happy to discuss with you which denture type would be  most suitable for your clinical situation and need.
