At the six-month dental check-up, we spot dental problems and also help to prevent them. We examine the health of your teeth and gums at the check-up. We recommend that you visit our practice every six months for a check-up.
Proper dental hygiene is important to keep your teeth and gums in optimal health. Our prevention assistants are here to prevent dental problems. They give information about the best way to care for your teeth. Our dental hygienists deal with more complicated dental problems. Make an appointment every six months for dental cleaning to ensure optimal oral health.
During root canal treatment, we eliminate infected and dead dental tissue from the root canal system. The infection can occur due to build-up of bacteria or a leaky filling. The dentist cleans the canal carefully and fills the space in order to prevent future infection.
Your teeth can sometimes become extremely discoloured over the years. If this bothers you, we can whiten them for you. Teeth whitening at home or at our practice is safe and entirely painless. It is very effective at restoring your teeth to their natural white colour.
We can modify the orientation, colour and shape of your teeth by placing veneers. Veneers are very suitable for repairing chipped teeth. We place the composite or porcelain shells over your own teeth. We do not damage them by doing this.
Crowns and bridges allow us to restore teeth which have broken off or are missing. We place a crown over an existing tooth like a shell. If you have a gap in your mouth due to a missing tooth, we can easily fill this empty space with a bridge.
Sometimes a normal dental prosthesis does not have enough support and begins to rattle and slide. If your traditional denture does not stay properly in place, another option is an implant-retained denture. For this we place implants in your jawbone to which we can later fix the implant-retained dentures.
