A large range of services for all your needs
A typical emergency visit might be in response to dental pain or a broken tooth. We endeavour to see all emergencies as quickly as we possibly can and often have provisions in our daily schedule to allow us to expect the unexpected. In the vast majority of pain cases, provision of pain relief is made possible on the day.
General and Preventive Dentistry
General dentistry has changed a lot over the years. Focussing on the prevention of problems, early detection of problems and providing treatments aimed at the longevity of teeth are the cornerstones of what we do. We encourage all patients to have regular dental examinations which allow us to reinforce these principles and help us keep teeth healthy for life.
Although adept and experienced in dedicated cosmetic treatments, we believe in not completing these is isolation. To a large extent, the distinction between general (health-driven) dental treatments and cosmetic treatments has evaporated over time. In modern dentistry, it is generally expected that treatments that are health driven are also made to be aesthetic.
Treating Gum Disease
Gum disease involves inflammation of the tissues surrounding the teeth - the gums and bone in particular. The disease process is driven predominantly by plaque. When bacteria in plaque are in contact with the gums, this creates inflammation. Sometimes this is noticed by patients as having red, puffy gums that may bleed when teeth are cleaned.
