We Are Accepting New Patients

General dentistry covers a range of treatments that help you achieve dental health, with the aim of helping you to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. It is recommended you visit your dentist at least every 6 months for a check up (unless recommended otherwise) and also to have a hygiene visit every 6 months too. 

It is important for a dentist to keep an eye on your dental health and spot any problems before they develop, such as, tooth decay, gum disease and even early warning signs for oral cancer.

The earlier a problem is spotted, the quicker it can be dealt with (and will often mean lower treatments costs to do so).   

Your hygiene visit will help you keep on top of your oral health by tackling any tough build ups of plaque and tartar. If you are due a checkup or hygiene visit, please do not hesitate to contact us today and book your appointment.

Root Canal Treatments

Root canal treatment is the process of removing an infected or dead pulp from the center of your tooth. This is required in a bid to save the tooth, but unfortunately, root canal treatments do not have a 100% success rate. In some cases, an extraction may be the only option (depending on the specific case).

The following are some of the most common signs of a root canal infection:

  • Sharp, severe, and excruciating pain
  • When biting, there is a sharp ache
  • Persistent pain after eating hot or cold food
  • Pressure and a dull ache
  • Tenderness and swelling of the gums in the area

In the last few years, there have been significant advancements in root canal treatment comfort, speed, and efficiency. Our dentists are knowledgeable, skilled, and up-to-date in root canal therapy, ensuring that all of our patients receive the finest possible care.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of an infection or worried about a tooth, please call us today and we will be happy to help.

Dental Extractions

Sometimes as a last resort, a tooth may need to be removed (extracted) due to disease, damage from trauma or to create space in an over-crowded mouth. 

Your natural teeth are the best set you will ever get, and our aim is to protect them for as long as possible, but sometimes, this may be the best option for you. Before removing any tooth, we will always discuss gap management options to deal with the inevitable gap once the tooth is gone. This can include:

Our friendly team will advise you on your post treatment after-care instructions to help the area heal as fast as possible

If you are worried about a tooth and would like to discuss what options are available for you, please do not hesitate to contact us today.

Dentures

If you have lost a few missing teeth to a full arch of teeth, dentures are the more traditional way when it comes to replacing them. We use the very best materials when creating new teeth, ensuring they are hard waring, functional and also aesthetically pleasing, with a natural looking finish. 

How Do Dentures Stay In Place?

All of our dentures are custom made to give a close fit along your underlying gum and bone tissue. Saliva will produce between the gum and your denture which will act as a sort of suction seal, holding the denture in place. 

Please note, a well fitted (initially) denture is subject to changes in our mouths, which will vary from person to person. Unfortunately, when we lose our teeth, we suffer from bone resorption. This effectively means the bone in our jaws starts to fade away, causing our once well fitted denture, to start to slip and feel uncomfortable – which are signs you may need a denture reline (depending on the denture), to make them feel more secure again. 

If you are after a more permanent solution, an implant retained overdenture is often considered the gold standard in tooth replacement. This is because the implants will integrate with the bone and in the same way as a natural tooth does, when you are chewing, signals will be sent to the surrounding bone and act as natural stimulator for bone growth around the implants. You over denture will be connected to these implants which gives them the same stability as natural teeth have, allowing you to eat, talk and laugh with complete confidence.
