There are many causes of pain, discomfort. and damage to teeth — toothache does not mean extraction. Often addressing such issues as gum disease, muscular problems, nerve infection or root canal problems negates the need for extraction. In the worst cases, when saving a tooth is not possible, extraction will be necessary. Sometimes, older teeth may obstruct the path of new teeth in children and we use extraction to allow the new teeth to emerge.
Fissure seals for young teeth
For many children who visit the clinic, fissure seals provide very effective decay prevention. Different to most practices, we only indicate fissure seals on teeth that are at risk of decay.
Fillings that look good and last longer
Our aim is to make fillings last as long as possible. All forms of dentistry require some restorative work whether its fillings, crowns or veneers that involve very fine motor skills and detailed work to achieve the best result.
Root Canal Treatment
Putting together a comprehensive dentistry program at a young age is very important, because we can identify key risk factors early on and navigate around them.
Wisdom teeth removal
We take a very conservative approach to wisdom teeth removal, and we certainly do not prophylactically remove wisdom teeth just because we can.
Minimal dosage X-rays
X-rays or dental radiography plays an important role in preventative dental care. Importantly we use minimal dosage dental X-rays that are safe for both children and adults.
Teeth grinding (Bruxism) management
Teeth grinding or Bruxism is very common among adults who come to the practice for the first time.
TMJ pain management
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain problems are often very specific to each person who suffers from this condition. TMJ pain is associated with the jaw joint on both sides and is usually a specific joint-related issue that we treat.
