Other Dental Services

In addition to our general dental services, we offer:

  • Examinations
    Full mouth examinations, which include not only the teeth, but also the gums, soft tissues, tongue, lips, glands and oral cancer screening.  Systemic disease is often first noticed or reflected in the mouth, therefore an oral examination can sometimes be lifesaving.  Incidents of mouth cancer in the UK are increasing at an alarming rate, therefore early diagnosis and treatment is essential.
  • Preventative treatment

    • Oral hygiene procedures
    • Fissure sealants
    • Scale & polishings
    • Night guards
    • Gum shields
    • Early detection of tooth decay with laser technology
  • Fillings
    The majority of our fillings are composite (white), which resembles tooth colour closely. We do not use any products containing mercury.
  • Teeth Whitening
    Natural ageing, genetics, habits and many of the food and drinks we enjoy can stain our teeth over time.  Such stains are resistant to regular brushing.  Teeth whitening is available to restore your smile.
  • Crowns
    Don’t be embarrassed by a broken tooth – we can fix it!  Talk to us about a porcelain crown dental procedure which will see a strong and polished tooth cap placed over any broken tooth.  The cap is permanently inserted and matched to your existing teeth.
  • Bridges
    These are excellent solutions for missing teeth or large gaps in your mouth.  These caps are fitted to healthy teeth either side of the gap.  A replacement tooth is connected to these teeth caps and fills the empty space preventing other teeth from moving into the gap.
  • Dentures
    Dentures are an affordable way to restore a smile lost to missing teeth. They can be colour matched to existing teeth and are custom fit to ensure the greatest level of functionality.  Loose fitting dentures, specially lower prosthesis, are a major problem in dentistry causing much frustration and embarrassment to patients.  To solve this an implant supported prosthesis makes the world of difference!
  • Veneers
    These allow your dentist to restore a healthy white appearance to teeth that have become misaligned, cracked, chipped or stained, without destructive preparation.  They can be custom coloured and shaped to match remaining teeth or to improve aesthetics.
  • Surgical Procedures
    A variety of small dental surgical procedures are offered such as:

    • Extractions
    • Wisdom tooth removals
    • Apicectomies
    • Crown lengthening
    • Hemi-sectioning of teeth
    • Periodontal surgery
  • Periodontal treatment
    Most teeth in the modern world are being lost through gum disease.  This disease is very subtle and painless in nature and goes unnoticed in most patients without any pain until a very advanced stage.  It is therefore necessary to have an early diagnosis of such a problem which can now be effectively treated.
    Experience, a trained eye and care through a basic periodontal examination (BPE) will ensure proper diagnosis and control of this potentially debilitating disease.
  • Sedations
    For the not so brave amongst us, the practice offers sedations either in the form of inhalation sedation or intravenous sedation.  The latter is performed by a visiting qualified medical doctor.
