Preventive dentistry
Preventive dentistry is the modern way of reducing the amount of dental treatment necessary to maintain a healthy mouth. With the joint efforts of our team, the aim is to prevent the need for treatment, and so avoid the traditional pattern of fillings and extractions. It is likely that a course of treatment will be recommended to get your mouth into excellent condition, and a plan worked out to help you keep it that way.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dentistry is no longer just a case of filling and extracting teeth, as it was for many years. Nowadays, many people turn to dentistry as a way of improving their appearance, much as they would use cosmetic surgery or even a new hairstyle. Cosmetic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges and tooth-coloured fillings.

Topics covered in this section:-

 

Root Canal Treatment

If a tooth’s pulp (nerve and blood supply) become infected or inflamed, root canal treatment is often the only way to save the tooth.

Missing teeth

Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth on each side. A gap can also mean your ‘bite’ is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.

Dental Implants

Implants are a tried and tested method of securing false teeth and 90% of them last for more than 15 years.

Mouth Cancer

Mouth cancer can effect any one and the incidence in the UK is on the increase. However, if it is identified early the chances of a full recovery are very high.
