What should I do in a dental emergency?

Dental emergencies can be unsettling, but it’s essential to stay calm. If you experience a severe toothache, a broken tooth, or a knocked-out tooth, contact our dental practice immediately. Our experienced team is equipped to handle emergencies promptly and provide the necessary care to alleviate pain and address the issue.

How does airflow tooth polishing benefit my smile?

Airflow tooth polishing is a gentle and effective technique that removes stubborn stains, plaque, and tartar from your teeth. This treatment leaves your smile feeling fresh and looking radiant, enhancing both the appearance and health of your teeth.

At what age should I start bringing my child for dental care?

We recommend bringing your child for their first dental visit by the age of one or within six months after their first tooth erupts. Early dental visits are crucial for monitoring oral development, providing preventive care, and establishing a positive dental experience for your child.

What are dental bridges, and how can they help me?

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that fill the gaps created by missing teeth. These restorations not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but also help restore the function of chewing and speaking by providing support to neighbouring teeth.

How often should I schedule dental hygiene appointments?

Regular dental hygiene appointments are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. We recommend scheduling dental cleanings every six months to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy and free from plaque and tartar build-up.

What are dentures, and are they right for me?

Dentures are removable appliances designed to replace missing teeth. They offer an effective and natural-looking solution for those with multiple missing teeth, restoring both the appearance and functionality of your smile.

How can I maintain healthy gums and prevent gum disease?

Maintaining healthy gums is vital for overall oral health. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential in preventing gum disease. Our dental team can also provide specialised gum hygiene treatments to ensure your gums stay healthy.

Are white fillings a better option than traditional metal fillings?

White fillings, also known as composite fillings, offer several advantages over traditional metal fillings. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, are metal-free, and require less tooth structure removal during placement.

What are inlays and onlays, and when are they recommended?

Inlays and onlays are custom-made restorations used to repair moderately damaged teeth. They provide a conservative alternative to dental crowns and are bonded to the tooth’s surface, restoring its strength and appearance.

How often should I undergo a mouth cancer screening?

Regular mouth cancer screenings are a crucial part of routine dental check-ups. We perform screenings at every dental visit to detect any potential signs of oral cancer early and ensure timely intervention if needed.

I feel nervous about dental visits. Can you help me?

Absolutely! Dental anxiety is common, and we understand your concerns. Our compassionate team is experienced in dealing with nervous patients, and we offer various relaxation techniques, including sedation, to ensure a comfortable and stress-free experience.

What is preventive dentistry, and how does it benefit me?

Preventive dentistry focuses on maintaining your oral health and preventing dental issues before they arise. Regular check-ups, cleanings, and personalised advice help you avoid more extensive and costly treatments down the road.

How is root canal treatment performed, and is it painful?

Root canal treatment is a relatively painless procedure that aims to save an infected or severely damaged tooth. Our skilled endodontists use modern techniques and local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Do I need X-rays for root canal treatment, and are they safe?

X-rays are essential for accurately diagnosing the extent of root canal issues. Our advanced X-ray technology minimises radiation exposure, making the process safe and effective for diagnosing and treating root canal problems.

Can I receive sedation for dental procedures?

Yes, we offer sedation dentistry for patients who experience dental anxiety or require extensive treatments. Sedation helps you relax during the procedure and ensures a stress-free experience.

Will tooth extraction be painful?

Tooth extractions are performed with utmost care and precision. Our dental team prioritises your comfort, and we use local anaesthesia to ensure a painless procedure.

What is endodontics, and how can it save my tooth?

Endodontics is a specialised branch of dentistry focused on treating dental pulp and root canal issues. With endodontic treatments, we can save infected teeth and preserve their natural functionality.

Should I use a professional sport guard during physical activities?

If you participate in sports or physical activities, a custom-made sport guard is highly recommended. These appliances provide a comfortable and secure fit, protecting your teeth from potential dental injuries.
