General dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial (associated with the jaw and face) region of the body. It includes services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health like fillings and restorations through to root and gum treatments. General dentistry including preventative care is extremely important for preventing dental diseases and for keeping your teeth and gums in great condition. On-going general dental care helps reduce the risk of any dental emergencies and ensures your teeth always look their best. We offer a wide range of general dental treatments from regular examinations and professional cleanings to more complex procedures such as extractions and root canal treatments. Whatever the nature of your dental care requirements, we will provide the right customised service to fit your unique conditions and needs.
Regular examinations should pick up any problems, for example, fillings that might be failing or any small areas of decay that require treatment. Often, the sooner the problems are picked up the easier and more straightforward they are to fix, so early detection is an important part of dental health. No restoration lasts forever and you will need to periodically renew any fillings. Nowadays we can use the latest amalgam-free filling materials to restore teeth in a way that not only looks like your tooth but also conserves the maximum amount of your tooth structure.
Preventative treatments such as a professional cleaning and fissure sealants protect teeth from cavities and preserve healthy gums. Research supports significant links between oral health and overall health. Maintaining a good oral health is an important contributor to prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
Root canal treatment is great for preserving infected teeth. Losing teeth can lead to changes in face shape, difficulties with speech and eating and the movement of other teeth. We’ll make sure this is carried out as comfortably as possible
For very broken down or cracked teeth, crowns can help them last longer by acting as a ‘crash helmet’ for the tooth to reduce the risk of further splitting or cracking of the tooth structure. Crowns can also help improve the appearance of teeth. We offer aesthetic all-porcelain crowns and work with reputable laboratories to ensure the best results for you.
