General Treatment Options

Come for your routine check. Stay for the comprehensive general dental treatments:

Gum disease is caused by plaque which results in the loosening of teeth over time. Various treatments for gum disease are available, depending on your individual requirements.

Treatments include: Hygiene therapy and education with long-term care and maintenance. Advanced options also include anti-microbials (local and general) and specialist referrals.

Tooth rot and broken teeth are generally repaired using a range of treatments under the common heading of fillings.

The aim / benefit is for you to remain functional by replacing the broken down tooth, using the most appropriate and minimally invasive material. 

Our dentists provide the most appropriate filling, using either a fluoride releasing cement, a resin or a metal, based on function and aesthetics

There are 2 types of cracked teeth: painful (a flexing micro-crack) and painless (a shattered tooth). For a painful crack, treatment involves holding the cracked tooth together to stop flexing to remove pain. For shattered teeth, treatment involves glueing the tooth back on, filling, or capping.

Root canal therapy is carried out where the nerve in the tooth is dying or has died. This usually results in excruciating pain or infection. 

To get you out of pain in emergency, we offer partial nerve removal (extirpation). Full treatment is offered as root canal therapy. This involves cleaning the root area in preparation for a tooth rebuild. In some cases, tooth extraction may be the only option available.

After root canal therapy, the tooth does darken and can be internally bleached or covered. Both are part of our Advanced Treatment Options.

If the tooth structure is not heavily compromised, it can be filled. Usually, the properties of the tooth change and the structure is heavily compromised, requiring tooth capping. 

A correctly treated and appropriately planned rebuild will result in the tooth lasting longer.

Capping is usually done in the following circumstances:

1) To hold cracks together,

2) When fillings are too big and won’t last (recommended), or

3) Most often after root canal therapy. 

There are various choices of materials and designs. Examples include: Resin, Porcelain, Zirconia, Non-Precious metals, Gold or a fusion of these in the format of an inlay, onlay or full coverage crown. We always recommend the most appropriate minimally invasive option for your health & wellbeing.

Where it is not possible to repair and restore a tooth, extraction is recommended and carried out to prevent pain and infections. Please refer to our Advanced Treatments Options for missing teeth.

If you are in pain, we aim to offer an emergency appointment within 24hours (same day where possible). We encourage you to call early. For regular checkups and treatment, your appointment will depend on availability.

  5. Always ensure your vehicle is parked in a bay correctly.
