What general dental services do we offer?
We can offer you:
Dental hygiene appointments
Inlays, onlays and crowns
These three restorative dental options are used to repair teeth when you need more than a filling, but the tooth can still be preserved.
Inlays are cemented into the tooth to seal it in the same way as a filling, but they are used to fill larger cavities.
Onlays cover part of the tooth – they are between an inlay and a crown.
Crowns are caps that are placed over the tooth to restore it where a more thorough repair is needed.
We can provide restorative dentistry if you’re suffering from problems such as damaged teeth, cracks and cavities. All options will take aesthetics into careful consideration, as well as your overall dental health. We will help you find the right solution for you.
Solutions for missing teeth
If you would like a permanent, long-lasting solution for missing teeth, you can also consider dental implants. These look and feel just like real teeth, and they can last a lifetime. We’ll help you make the right decision for you.
Dental care for children
It’s essential you look after your child’s teeth, or they can experience problems throughout their life. Encouraging children to take care of their teeth is very important, establishing good routines at a young age. It’s essential your child attends regular dental check-ups so we can look for early signs of plaque, and address it before it leads to decay. We can also advise you and your child on maintaining good oral hygiene at home, setting them up for a lifetime of good oral health.
Your dentist can look for early signs of mouth cancer, sometimes referred to as oral cancer, during a regular check-up. You should also look out for signs of mouth cancer yourself and tell your dentist if you have any concerns – these might include:
Symptoms may be caused by other dental issues so it’s vital you consult a professional. If your dentist finds any potential signs of mouth cancer, they will be able to refer you on to a specialist for further tests. Mouth cancer that’s caught early will be more treatable, so if you notice any potential symptoms, please get in touch to book an appointment.
Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment can be used to save a tooth when the pulp inside it has become infected, preventing the need for an extraction. The procedure will remove the infection, before cleaning out the canal and tooth. You will then have a filling, or a dental crown will be fitted, making sure the tooth is no longer vulnerable.
There are various factors that might cause you to need root canal treatment, such as a loose filling or a build-up of dental decay. If you do require the procedure, we will carry it out under local anaesthetic to make sure you’re comfortable. Attending regular check-ups will help you to maintain good oral health, making you less likely to need root canal treatment in future.
