Restorative Dental Treatments

Always Looking After Your Smile

Root Canal

A Root Canal Treatment is required when tooth decay advances and spreads into the nerve of the tooth, resulting in a tooth infection. The infection can lead to severe pain and swelling and if left untreated can result in more serious problems and most likely the loss of the tooth. A root canal treatment can save your tooth and avoid having to have the tooth extracted. The tooths infected canals are located, cleaned out thoroughly and then sealed to eliminate the infection. Root canal treatment may involve more than one visit, at the first appointment the dentist will relieve your pain by cleaning the canal and placing a root dressing and a temporary filling.

At the next appointment, once the dentist is satisfied that the infection is gone, the tooth can be permanently root filled and subsequently restored. Then the tooth can be crowned to ensure it stays strong.

Extractions

Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from its socket in the bone. If a tooth has been broken or damaged from decay then your dentist will try to repair it with a crown, filling or other treatment. However, there are cases where there is too much damage, decay or gum disease in which case you may need to have your tooth extracted. Our highly trained Dental team will take an x-ray of the area in order to plan the best way to extract the tooth. We offer both extractions and surgical extractions.

We can offer certain dental extractions with sedation for those patients who may be nervous or have a dental phobia.

Crowns

A crown is a strong, long-lasting way of restoring a tooth. It is often the best way to rebuild a tooth which has broken or been weakened by decay or a large filling. It may also be the best solution for improving the appearance of a heavily filled tooth. A crown fits over the remaining parts of the tooth, strengthening it and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth. If you have a dental implant or certain root filled teeth are required to be completed with a crown. There are a variety of types of crowns; porcelain, gold, porcelain bonded and ceramic.

The appropriate type of crown for your individual needs will be explained and our team can advise which is best for you.

Bridges

A dental bridge can be used to fill the gap between missing teeth, restoring and improving your smile. There are two types of dental bridge: a conventional bridge and a bonded bridge. Conventional bridges use crowns fitted to two or more adjacent teeth with porcelain false teeth created to fill the gap. If teeth next to the gap need a crown for example if they are cracked or have large fillings this technique works well.

Bonded bridges are made of two parts – a false porcelain tooth and a wing, which is attached using cement to the tooth next to the gap. If the surrounding teeth are strong this is a good option, as it does not require the fitting of crowns. Bridges will improve the appearance of your smile and also your bite.

Dentures

Dentures can ensure full dental functionality to people who have suffered the loss of one or more of their teeth. A well-made denture can be comfortable, removable and easy to keep clean. They are an affordable option to replace missing teeth and are made of either acrylic or metal. A ‘complete’ or ‘full’ denture is one, which replaces all the natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. A ‘partial’ denture fills in the spaces left by lost or missing teeth. A complete denture, replacing all your own teeth will fit snugly over your gums and whilst improving the appearance of the teeth, the dentures also provide cheek and lip support, helping to correct sagging facial muscles.

Our dentists will guide you through the process to ensure your dentures look natural, fit comfortably and you regain the confidence of a smile.

Dental Sedation

Our sedation services are available to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment with us. When you are sedated you will be conscious, but unaware of what is going on around you. Our dentist will be able to help you decide which type of sedation is right for you.

Sedation is administered by a fully trained and experienced clinician who forms part of our exemplary team. They are a member of SAAD and DTSG. If you are anxious or nervous when visiting the dentist then sedation can be very helpful to keep you relaxed and calm during your appointment. When receiving sedation, you will be fully informed beforehand of any potential side effects and given advice to help with your recovery.

When having treatment under sedation you will require a chaperone to attend with you and collect you following your appointment.
