Oral hygiene is important in early years, to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Regular Dental check-ups help your dentist to help you prevent and treat decay before it causes cavities and toothache.
Children should start to visit the dental practice as young as possible, so bring them along with you to your check-ups. They may be too young for an examination but the visits helps to familiarise them with the surroundings, the smells, noise and most important they meet the dentist.
The examinations will be informal to start, a quick look using a dental mirror. Counting the teeth and looking for signs of decay. As the child's confidence grows your dentist will carry out a more thorough examination.
Combining regular hygienist appointments with your own home care is the best way to maintain a healthy mouth, keep your teeth strong and give you fresher breath. Neglecting your gums can lead to poor gum health, which can cause cause heart problems later on in life.
Hygienist training is focused on preventing gum disease and tooth decay by removing deposits of tartar that build up on the teeth. By teaching you how to prevent it collecting on your teeth in the future, you will be able to slow the process of gum disease.
A missing tooth can create a number of oral health problems, with the root of every tooth acting as a placeholder for sockets that keep teeth in the jaw and once a tooth is lost, the bone structures around this special socket can start to recede.
This may result in remaining teeth shifting and causing discomfort and other complications in the long term. A dental implant acts as the substitute for the root of a tooth, helping to keep the jaw in alignment.
Our dental implants provide one of the most reliable and innovative treatments for permanent tooth replacement.
As the name suggests a smile makeover is a new smile that has been designed to look better in many ways. It may align crowded teeth, close gaps, reduce protrusion, whiten, reduce a gummy smile, widen a narrow smile, change the length or shape of teeth, replace missing teeth or any combination of the above.
A smile makeover usually involves at least the top eight or ten teeth and sometimes the lower eight or ten teeth too. The most frequent treatments used in a smile makeover are multiple porcelain veneers because they are the most conservative restoration and because they are strong and highly aesthetic.
Most people have fillings of one sort or another but today, because we are much more conscious of our smile, we can choose a natural looking alternative – the composite or tooth-coloured filling.
A composite resin is a tooth-coloured plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide) first introduced in the 1960s. Originally only used for front teeth because of their softer nature, modern improvements to their composition make them generically suitable today.
We offer the following emergency services.

Cosmetic bonding is the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin (like a white filling) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth. Unlike porcelain veneers, which are made in a laboratory, composite bonding can be used to transform the appearance of one or more front teeth in just one short appointment.
Cosmetic bonding does not normally require any preparation and is completed in around one hour, without the need for anaesthetic.
Teeth can be straightened using either orthodontics or porcelain veneers or a combination of both. Only mild to moderate crowding or protrusion can be aligned with veneers alone, but orthodontics can straighten any teeth, however severely misaligned.
Combination treatments are ideal for crowded and misaligned teeth that are also heavily worn, discoloured or broken down.
Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torquing them from the very first appointment.
Patients can now get results often with less sensitivity, in about a year, and in some cases, just a few months. Click here for more information. Or contact us here to make an appointment to discuss Fastbraces®
