From routine dental examinations for preventive care to precision diagnosis of treatment requirements, our experienced dental practitioners provide complete dental care to help patients smile with confidence.
Regular dental exams are a critical part of oral health care. During a dental exam, your teeth will be cleaned and checked for cavities and gum disease and we will evaluate your risk of developing oral problems, discuss oral hygiene habits and offer the most appropriate treatment for your situation.
3D Dental Scans (3D X-Rays)
3D scans allow us to view dental anatomy from different angles and give us a better understanding of bone structures in order to locate canals and root fractures. They also aid in diagnosis and treatment planning, and improve treatment success.
Conservative Dental Treatments
Nowadays, conservative dentistry is based on minimally-invasive procedures. During the restorative process, the unhealthy structure of the tooth is removed and as much of the original structure of the tooth is conserved.
Fillings help restore teeth that are damaged or decayed. White composite material is used, and the procedure is simple, with just one treatment normally required. The filling will be shaped to fit your tooth and polished so that it remains smooth and resistant to staining.
Common causes of decay or infection are a deep cavity, large restoration or cracked tooth – all of which can allow bacteria to establish. Root canal treatment is safe, effective and is carried out as quickly as possible, and is an excellent way of preserving the quality and appearance of your teeth.
Build-ups (Composite Restorations)
A dental technique used to restore the function, integrity and shape of a tooth. We apply composite layers to the tooth and harden each layer. We then shape the composite and polish it to prevent staining and early wear.
If tooth damage is severe and cannot be rectified by a filling, the best option may be an inlay or onlay. Fabricated the same day in our own laboratory using CAD/CAM CEREC technology, an inlay fits within the cusps of a back tooth and perfectly restores the anatomy of the tooth; an onlay covers one or more of these cusps.
Desensitizing Laser Treatment
An inexpensive and conservative way to treat sensitivity. A laser is directed at the sensitive area, diminishing or eliminating discomfort for a number of years in most cases. The effects are immediate, and no anaesthesia is necessary.
Laser Therapy for Jaw Pain
Laser treatment penetrates deep into the tissues of the jaw. Laser energy decreases inflammation deep in the tissues producing almost immediate relief and stimulating healing.
Cosmetic (Aesthetic) Dentistry
Everything we do for you should look and feel real and will enhance your appearance and confidence.
In the past, people did not have the possibility of improving the colour of their teeth. New technologies now make it possible to whiten teeth without causing sensitivity, degradation or damage. We will evaluate your teeth and provide the safest treatment to give you a brighter, whiter smile.
An ideal way to create a natural, full smile, veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or composite resin that are placed over existing teeth. We provide veneers to patients wanting to make slight position alterations or change the colour, size, and shape of their teeth.
Professional Cleaning and Polishing
For removing tooth staining caused by red wine, tea, coffee, smoking, etc., our AirFlow ultrasonic treatment is perfect. It is a hygienic cleaning treatment that uses a mixture of air, water and fine powder to gently and effectively return teeth to their natural whiteness.
Our goal is to help you maintain your teeth for a lifetime. However, sometimes a surgical procedure is required – wisdom teeth, extra teeth, or very crowded teeth may need removal. And for severely decayed or cracked teeth, or those missing large amounts of supporting bone, extraction is the only viable option.
Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, but most commonly to remove teeth which are unrestorable and there is not other possibility for treatment. Tooth extractions are carried out quickly with minimal discomfort.
This is used to correct the effects of gum recession caused by disease, poor gum development or aggressive toothbrushing. It is usually undertaken to improve gum thickness to reduce the risk of further recession, reduce dental sensitivity, and in some cases cover roots.
A tooth abscess can be a major dental emergency. Not only is there a great deal of discomfort, but an infected tooth can cause loss of the tooth itself without urgent attention involving surgical incision and drainage.
Impacted Tooth Extractions
When a tooth fails to grow into the mouth it is referred to as ‘impacted’. Usually, an impacted tooth doesn’t have enough room to grow. This is a very common occurrence which can cause problems without extraction. Our procedures are quick with minimal discomfort.
Prosthetic & Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that seeks to correct dental problems while helping to restore health and beauty to your smile. These problems may arise due to external injury, trauma, natural defects or poor oral hygiene.
A crown covers a single damaged tooth in its entirety and is one of the strongest and most popular solutions for restoring a tooth to its full function and appearance. We create crowns made from various materials and will advise which is the most appropriate to any given situation.
Bridges are designed to replace one or several missing teeth and they restore full function and appearance. Bridges are secured by crowns on adjacent teeth to the space and can be made from a range of materials depending on individual patient needs.
To replace a missing tooth, an artificial root is secured to the jaw bone and topped with an artificial tooth. The object is to closely mimic a real tooth, and the procedure is an alternative to dentures and bridges.
Dentures – New and Replacement
Complete or partial dentures replace missing teeth. Precision dentures manufactured quickly in our laboratory will restore the mouth to almost full function and aesthetics. Depending on circumstances, we create dentures from acrylic, porcelain, resin or a combination.
Dentures are subject normal wear and tear, can be damaged in an accident, or, if the jawline changes, they may no longer fit securely. Our in-clinic repair facility can quickly repair or correct dentures so that full functionality and appearance is restored.
Correction of Articulation
Incorrectly aligned teeth can affect speech in varying degrees. Correctly aligning teeth not only enhances speech, but also improves appearance and aids oral health by allowing you to clean your teeth more effectively, preventing such issues as gingivitis, tooth decay and jawbone pain.
Dentistry for Children (Paediatric Dentistry)
We provide the highest quality children’s dentistry. Our team takes a sensitive and caring approach to make sure that children feel comfortable and enjoy their time with us. Services are individually designed to suit each child.
Dental Consultations for Infants and Children
The first dental consultation should be scheduled when the first baby tooth has appeared – or before 12 months of age. Examinations are quick and simple, and will help us to identify any issues that may cause problems in the future.
Regular Examinations and Cleaning
Regular exams are important for maintaining your child’s oral health. We will check for any problems, cavities or signs of decay, and inspect for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease. We will clean, polish, and rinse the teeth to remove any tartar and plaque build-up on tooth surfaces.
Baby teeth hold space for the permanent teeth to grow in. If one is lost, the others can shift into the empty space and prevent the permanent tooth from growing. So whenever possible, we will save a damaged tooth by apply a filling – using an advanced white composite material with a life span of 6 to 12 years.
Dental sealants are special resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on the tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the grooves become smooth, and are less likely to harbour plaque. With sealants, brushing becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay.
There are several reasons our doctor will advise that a child’s tooth should be removed: a misshapen tooth, issues with the dental roots, a decayed tooth, or a trauma. Depending on the complexity, mild anaesthesia will provide comfort and tranquillity to your child throughout the procedure.
A fluoride treatment takes just a few minutes. Depending on your child’s oral health or our doctor’s recommendation, your child may require fluoride treatment every three, six, or 12 months, and at-home fluoride products may also be prescribed.
Restorative Dentistry for Children and Adolescents
Restorative dentistry is the prevention and treatment of diseases of the teeth in order to restore or bring them back to optimal health. Treatments aim at the repair or replacement of damaged or defective teeth: typically they include treatment of the nerves, crowns, fillings, extractions and space maintainers.
A pulpotomy, or nerve treatment, is undertaken when a large amount of decay is present, when there is pain from an infected tooth, or when the decay is very close to touching the pulp, or nerve, of the tooth. If not treated properly and promptly, your child could develop a serious infection or lose the tooth.
This is the removal of infected or diseased pulp from a tooth. The object is save the tooth so that it doesn’t have to be extracted. Once the damaged pulp is removed, the area inside the tooth is disinfected and then filled with an inert material.
Treatment of Pulpitis and Periodontitis
A common complication of tooth decay is pulpitis, when decay has reached deep into the core of the tooth. If not treated, root canal infection can affect the tissues surrounding the tooth and develop complications. Untreated pulpitis can lead to periodontitis – a complicated disease of a tooth’s root canal system, which must be treated effectively to avoid extraction.
Periodontology deals with diseases of the supporting tissue around the tooth. Continuous monitoring of patients suffering from periodontal disease is critical as problems can recur, and only with perfect oral care and regular professional oral hygiene treatment can avoidance be maintained.
Laser Periodontal Therapy
An advanced technique used to treat periodontal (gum) disease that now saves teeth previously considered beyond saving. A laser gently removes harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gum pocket. This allows for natural healing so that gum pockets improve and teeth become more stable.
Symptoms of gingivitis include gum reduction, bleeding gums, bad breath, swollen and red gums. Prompt treatment usually reverses symptoms and prevents progression to more serious gum disease and tooth loss. Treatments include: professional dental cleaning, dental restoration if necessary, and ongoing care. Gingivitis usually clears up after a thorough professional cleaning — as long as good oral hygiene is maintained.
Treatment for Periodontitis
Periodontitis occurs if the gum disease advances beyond gingivitis. Common symptoms include excessive bleeding, bone reduction, unstable teeth, positional changes and tooth loss. The first step in treating periodontitis usually involves scaling and root planning. This treatment may be done over more than one visit, depending on personal needs.
Our experts provide high-quality orthodontic treatments, help straighten your teeth in the shortest possible time and with as less discomfort as possible.
