PREVENTIVE CARE

The dental team will use a variety of procedures to help you maintain a healthy mouth.

This treatment ensures that dental plaque and harmful bacteria are eliminated from the mouth, leaving teeth spotless. Potentially infection harbouring solidified plaque and tartar are removed to prevent gum problems which could develop into periodontal disease.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in water in varying amounts, depending on where you live in the UK. It can be used to help prevent tooth decay and our dental team can apply varnishes and prescribe fluoride mouthwashes and toothpastes to those at higher risk of decay.

Smoking causes damage to the mouth, gums and teeth. Many of the effects of smoking on your mouth are reversible and are likely to improve after quitting. If you are a smoker and would like to quit, our team can advise you on resources to help.

Fissure sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on to the grooves of the back teeth. The sealant forms a protective layer that keeps food and bacteria from getting stuck in the tiny grooves in the teeth and causing decay.

RESTORATIVE CARE

The dental team will provide treatments to restore damaged or decayed teeth and their supporting structures.

The dentist will remove any decay which may come about as a result of damage to the external structure of the tooth. The cavity will then be filled with an appropriate material with minimal discomfort to the patient.

The dental team is highly experienced in customisation and reparation of fixed and removable dentures which help to reconstruct intraoral defects such as missing teeth and soft or hard structures of the jaw and palate.

Popular prosthetics include bridges, crowns and dentures.

When the blood or nerve supply of a tooth becomes compromised due to infection from decay or injury, removal of the infected pulp may be necessary to prevent progression to an abscess.

The treatment is usually completed over two appointments. At the first appointment, the infected pulp is removed. Any abscesses which may be present can also be drained at this time. The root canal is then cleaned and shaped ready for the filling. A temporary filling is put in and the tooth is left to settle. The tooth is checked at a later visit and when all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently filled.
