Scaling & Root Planing
Dental scaling and root planning (SRP) is a non-surgical procedure used to treat gum disease or periodontitis, a common dental problem that occurs when bacteria build up on the teeth and gums. This can cause inflammation, swelling, and bleeding, and eventually, lead to tooth loss. Scaling and root planing is a common treatment for early-stage gum disease.
Dental x-rays are an important tool used by dentists to evaluate your oral health. They allow the dentist to look at what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums, which is where many of the oral problems we see can be found. X-rays help the dentist to diagnose areas of decay between the teeth, infections in the bone, abscesses or cysts, and some types of tumours that they would not otherwise be able to detect.
Fluoride treatment is a simple and effective dental procedure that strengthens your teeth and helps prevent tooth decay. By applying a fluoride compound to your teeth, we enhance the natural protection of your enamel and reduce the risk of cavities. This quick and painless treatment is particularly beneficial for children and individuals prone to dental issues.
Endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal therapy, is a specialized dental procedure aimed at saving teeth that are severely infected or damaged. By removing infected pulp from within the tooth and sealing it, we can alleviate pain, halt infection, and preserve your natural smile.
Regular dental cleanings help prevent gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss.When plaque builds up on teeth, it causes inflammation of the gums leading to gingivitis. If left untreated, gingivitis can turn into periodontitis which destroys the bone supporting the teeth causing them to fall out.
Dental sealants are thin coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (molars and premolars) to protect them from decay. These teeth have deep grooves and pits that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush, and food particles and bacteria can easily get trapped in them, leading to cavities.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. It is an important practice area in dentistry that can help improve the appearance, health, and function of your teeth and smile. Orthodontic treatment involves the use of different types of braces or other appliances to correct malocclusion – misalignment of the bite.
