Certain Dental procedures require an additional level of understanding and training. These specialties can only be practiced by dentists who are fully qualified to do so. If we are unable to perform the necessary procedure we will refer you to the nearest relevant specialist.
Gum disease affects the gums, bone and ligaments that support your teeth. These structures are the foundations that enable you to keep your teeth for life, but they can be damaged by bacterial infection.
Treatment of periodontal disease starts with an experienced dentist examining the gum tissue and diagnosing the correct type and stage of the underlying gum disease. The aim of periodontal treatment is to stop disease progression and keep the natural teeth. More severe cases need specialist treatment with a periodontist.
Root Canal treatments are carried out when the inside of the tooth (the root or pulp) becomes infected or damaged, causing the root to be very painful and creating inflammation with the risk of severe pain and swelling.
Root Canal Treatment eliminates the cause of the pain by completely removing the diseased or damaged tissue from the tooth. The root canal is meticulously cleaned, shaped and decontaminated, before securely filling it back up with a durable, inert material. This means you can be pain free whilst keeping your original tooth.
There have been great innovations in the last few years to improve the comfort, speed and efficiency of this treatment.
Prosthodontics focuses on restoring natural teeth or placing a natural looking substitute to replace missing teeth or a part of the mouth. These can be permanent or temporary placements.
