Oral Hygiene

To keep your teeth and gums healthy, plaque needs to be removed at least twice a day. Plaque which is not removed hardens and becomes calculus, this cannot be removed with normal brushing. Regular dental examinations and cleaning prevents this calculus building up and causing gum disease.

A dental restoration or dental filling is using dental restorative materials to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure that has been lost due to decay or fracture. The most common filling materials are composite resin, glass ionomer and amalgam.

Root Canal Treatment/Endodontics

Root canal or endodontic treatment is a process whereby inflamed or dead nerve tissue is removed from the inside of a tooth enabling the tooth that was causing pain and/or infection to be retained. The space where the nerve has been removed from is then filled with a special filling material.

Crown and Bridge

A crown is an artificial hollow cap/cover that is fitted to a discoloured, broken, worn, or previously decayed tooth. It is designed to improve strength, function and appearance. A bridge is an appliance permanently fixed in the mouth to replace missing teeth. It uses remaining teeth to support the new artificial tooth or teeth. This is different to a partial denture which can be removed for cleaning and/or adjustment.

Implants are used to support crowns, bridges or dentures that replace missing teeth. They are titanium fixtures that are placed within the jaw bone that bone then attaches to.

The process of teeth bleaching involves the use of oxidising agents such as carbamide peroxide to chemically lighten the colour of your teeth. This may be applied inside the tooth in the case of an individually root filled tooth that has gone dark in colour or via trays as an external bleach to change the colour of multiple teeth.

Veneers are coverings on the front of teeth to improve their colour and/or shape. They may be applied directly to the teeth using composite (white) filling material or manufactured from porcelain in a dental laboratory. They sometimes also require gum surgery to achieve the best result.
