Routine Dental Treatment

Regular dental care and treatment for all the family.

Attending regular dental appointments is the best way to maintain a good standard of oral health and confident smiles for all the family. It’s a good idea to introduce children to the dentist at an early age to get them familiar with visiting our Practice. Family appointments are a great way to do this.

Routine - Dental Check-up

Dental Check-ups

Routine check-ups, cleaning and maintenance reduce the possibility of tooth decay and problems caused by gum disease.

During a regular check-up your dentist will examine your teeth, gums and the soft tissues in your mouth, looking for signs of tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer. They will also do an external examination of your jaw and facial muscles.

We recommend a full check-up every six months in order to spot problems before they cause too much damage. If you need any treatment, your dentist will discuss the options with you and create a treatment plan. You are always in control.
Dental Hygiene is another important part of routine dental care.

Sensitive Teeth

Pain caused by sensitive teeth usually occurs when people consume hot and cold food and drink. It can range from a mild twinge to continuing discomfort.

Specialist toothpastes can ease the symptoms of sensitive teeth, which is generally caused by a weakening of the tooth enamel. If you have tried using toothpaste for a few weeks and not noticed a difference, you may need dental treatment. Coating sensitive areas of teeth with fluoride gels or varnishes can help relieve sensitivity.

Routine - Filling


Around 95% of people will suffer from tooth decay at some point in their life. Early identification and swift removal of any decay are important to preserve the health of the tooth.

Depending on the nature of the restoration, we offer amalgam, ceramic and mercury-free metal fillings. White composite fillings can also be created to match your original tooth colour. Your dentist will advise on the best option.

Crowns and Bridge Work

Crowns, also known as caps, cover and support damaged, weak or discoloured teeth and fillings, and restore teeth to their natural shape and size. It usually takes at least two appointments to fit a crown; the first to prepare the tooth and fit a temporary crown, the second to fit the permanent crown once it has been made.

A bridge is essentially two crowns with a false tooth or teeth fixed between them. Bridges permanently fill the gap when teeth are missing. They can help improve eating and speaking difficulties caused by missing teeth and prevent the remaining teeth from moving out of position. Preparing and fitting a bridge takes a minimum of two to three appointments.

Designed to blend with your natural teeth, both crowns and bridges can last for 10+ years.

Routine - Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

Known in dentistry as Endodontics, root canal treatment is designed to save a tooth when the nerves are damaged and soft tissue inside the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This can happen due to decay, repeated dental treatments, a crack or chip, or facial trauma.

Your dentist will remove the tooth’s nerve and pulp, clean and seal the inside of the tooth with a permanent filling or crown. It’s a routine dental procedure normally carried out under local anaesthetic over two or more appointments. Your dentist will talk you through what will happen at each stage and give you aftercare advice.
