Hygiene & Prevention
The best prevention alongside your home care is attending regular dental check-ups and clean appointments. Your regular visit will include screening for oral cancer, gum disease and any areas that require attention. These visits allow early detection, which is SO important!
With major advancements in technology, tooth coloured composite restorations - white fillings - offer aesthetics and supports the remaining tooth structure. These are ideal for small to medium restorations as they are strong, durable and virtually unnoticeable. Lets restore those precious teeth!
A dental implant is a titanium post which acts as a foundation for a crown, bridgework or dentures. Implants are the modern choice for tooth replacement. With dental implants, you can laugh, bite, and chew just as you would with your natural teeth. Do you have gaps or want an alternative to a denture or bridge?

Crowns & Bridges
Crowns also known as “caps”, are custom made and prolong the life of a weakened tooth. They restore and improve strength, function and natural appearance. Bridges are commonly used to literally 'bridge' a gap between two teeth, maintaining the natural bite and chewing ability as an alternative to an implant or denture!
The symptoms of snoring can be relieved with a MDSA splint by repositioning the jaw in a way that opens up the airway, allowing for better breathing. Bruxism known as teeth grinding occurs during sleep and times of stress. A night splint is one way to help if you are experiencing painful facial muscles, frequent headaches, earaches or excessive tooth wear!
We suggest a first visit around three years of age, once all the baby teeth have emerged. We make it fun with a ride in our chair, counting and polishing baby teeth. We monitor that the permanent teeth are emerging correctly preventing major orthodontic problems in the future. Regular visits ensure the development of good oral habits. Let's teach children how to care for their teeth!
