We understand how some people feel about visiting the dentist and we are keen to reassure you that each visit to our dental spa will be a positive encounter. We want to make coming to see us an enjoyable experience where you leave feeling listened to, privileged, pampered and part of something special – and even excited about your next visit!
As a prospective client, your complimentary and personable consultation allows you to visit the practice and meet our friendly staff. During the consultation we will discuss your dental issues and concerns in a non-clinical environment where you can feel relaxed and engaged. At this stage we can outline which are the most appropriate treatments available to you.
Regular Health Check & X-Rays
During your regular health review, we will listen to your concerns, followed by a full oral health assessment. This is where the teeth, the gums and an oral cancer screen is done as standard. Digital X-rays will be taken and all issues will be discussed discreetly and confidentially.
We also give you a virtual tour of your mouth, using the latest in intraoral camera technology, highlighting any issues that may arise and helping to put oral health management into context. Any required intervention is then discussed and a treatment plan will be formulated with a full breakdown of costs.
White Filling Materials
Also known as composites, filling materials have come of age over these past few years. Now, they are aesthetically pleasing and the latest layering techniques allow the restoration to mimic the layers that occur naturally in our own teeth. The latest technology now allows the filling to be indiscernible from your original tooth, with virtually seamless finishing – so no more hiding your teeth when you smile!
Due to the advancements of durability and strength composite fillings now have, they are considered a real alternative to other unsightly fillings. This results in a filling that is as durable as conventional amalgam fillings but with the added advantage of improved appearance.
Root Canal Treatments
Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is required when the blood or nerve supply to your tooth has been affected by trauma, infection or decay. This may or may not be accompanied by symptoms of pain and requires the experience of a dental professional to diagnose.
Inside each tooth is the pulp, which provides the nutrients (in the blood supply) and nerves to the tooth. It appears like a thread running through the tooth. The anatomy of each tooth will dictate the number of roots it has and therefore the number of canals present. When the pulp becomes diseased or infected due to various events, it dies.
At this stage the pulp will then be removed, the canals cleaned and the tooth sealed. The tooth may then be crowned in order to protect it, depending on the amount of tooth structure that is remaining following the procedure.
