You cannot see in your own mouth nor can you see problems – your dentist can by looking with intense light and taking occasional xrays to see areas not visible by eye.
You can then be advised, if necessary, of steps you can take to improve the health of your mouth, and correct problems at an early stage using simple treatments.
This way you avoid tooth-ache, tooth loss and costly complex treatments, and maintain an attractive clean healthy smile.
We all have teeth - and we all want to keep them for life! The purpose of Preventive Dentistry is to help each of us keep our teeth and gums healthy today and every day.
Several dental filling materials are available including, tooth-colored composite resin fillings, gold and porcelain
There is also a material that contains glass particles and is known as glass ionomer.
Silver amalgam is hardly used anymore. In our clinic we use top quality materials intended to last your lifetime.
The location and extent of the decay and cost of filling and your dentist's recommendation assist in determining the type of filling best for each case.
This is No.1 in dentistry since your mouth and gums can never be really healthy unless they are really clean.
Remember bacteria grow in warm wet environments where there is plenty food!
Our hygienists will thoroughly clean you teeth both above and below the gum-line and they give you the individual advice you need to keep them that way. (brushing and interproximal cleaning- in between the teeth)
This way you can keep gum disease at bay. If you have gum disease then your dentist and hygienist will work together to effectively treat that problem and keep it a bay with regular maintenance visits (cleanings and check-up) to suit you needs.
We can replace missing teeth by using bridgework to `bridge the gap' by crowning adjacent teeth.
This way the new teeth are fixed and not removeable, so they feel like natural teeth.
This relies on he adjacent teeth being strong enough to support the bridge.
We also create smiles with different types of removeable dentures. If you are a denture wearer , then you don´t want to feel or look like you are wearing them.
We will design your dentures for maximum comfort and aesthetics and we guarantee your satisfaction- we hope your smile is our recommendation .
