Periodontal

Periodontal Disease Gingivitis (often referred to as gum disease) is a condition which causes your gums to become red, inflamed and swollen. It can cause your gums to bleed when you brush your teeth. Gingivitis is normally caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is a sticky substance made up of bacteria, which is usually removed when you brush your teeth. However, if plaque is left to build up on your teeth, the bacteria will release toxins which can irritate your gums, making them painful.

PERIODONTAL THERAPY – we must continually have hygiene maintenance visits to keep periodontal disease from recurring. Bacteria can grow back and the gums can become re-infected. Maintenance visits are all about minimizing bacterial infection and achieving a fresh start.

Endodontics

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition, a blow to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or leave an abscess.

The Endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully cleans the inside of the tooth, then fills and seals the space. Afterwards, you will return to your dentist, who will place a crown or other restoration on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function. After restoration, the tooth continues to function like any other tooth.

TEETH WHITENING – Teeth whitening is one of the most effective ways in which to improve the overall appearance of your smile in a convenient and painless way. We offer a choice of three methods here at our clinic. A consultation would be required so that the Dentist could discuss the best suitable treatment for you.

IN- HOUSE WHITENING – Latest Quickest whitening treatment. Allows the patient to have the treatment done in the clinic under a Halogen light. The approx. time is 1-2 hours.

HOME WHITENING – Impressions are taken of your upper and lower teeth, allowing the laboratory to custom make your trays. We then provide you with whitening gel and easy to follow instructions. The process is safe and fast. You may see a change in as little as 14 days.

COMBINATION WHITENING – This offers a combination of the two leading whitening systems with home and In- House laser whitening which offers the deepest bleaching results.

PORCELIN VENEERS – A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Porcelain Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.

COMPOSITE BONDING – A natural-coloured filling material can be used for minor repairs to front teeth. This is excellent where the tooth supports the filling, but may not work so well for broken tooth corners.

Prothesis

NIGHT GUARD – Teeth grinding can occur in both children and adults. And it is very important that this health condition is not ignored. There are different night mouth guards available.

Night guards are bite pads that are supposed to be worn at night as you sleep. These guards are usually made of high-grade plastic and should fit the teeth or mouth perfectly. This device keeps the upper teeth from grinding with the lower teeth, offering an instant solution to teeth clenching problems.
