Dental Treatments

In this day and age, a healthy mouth is a vital component of a positive lifestyle.

Often we leave things too late and teeth are lost. If regular dental checkups are made, tooth loss can be prevented as your dentist may often notice things that you are not aware of. Even patients without teeth require regular check ups to maintain the health of their gums. If a diagnosis is made, a wide variety of treatment options will be available for your.

Please find more information about some of the treatments we offer below.

Bridges

A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth. As you may have guessed from the name, it literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. They can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. A bridge is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Bridges have become very popular over the years, with many people opting for these in place of a small denture. Read More >>

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a metal titanium insert that is used to replace a missing tooth and or teeth. The insert can be used to retain a crown, bridge or even a denture. This is a great way of replacing missing teeth as implants are a much more reliable and permanent option and effectively aim to replace the ‘roots’ in your jaw. Read More >>
