General dentistry treatments
We offer a full range of general dentistry treatments.
Consultation and examination
During your consultation appointment, the dentist will carry out an extensive examination of your teeth and gums. The focus will be on enhancing the appearance and health of your smile, but we'll always begin with an informal chat about your unique smile aspirations. Listening carefully to your needs, your dentist may take photos and identify features you would like to improve.
A simple and affordable way to really lift your smile - and far more aesthetically pleasing than the old amalgam fillings - our white ‘composite’ material can be used to replace old fillings or for any new ones required.
Mouth Cancer Screening
Studies show that mouth cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. Our oral cancer screening involves a thorough examination of your whole mouth, including the use of a handheld scanning device that is used to examine any lumps or lesions that you might have.
Good oral hygiene is essential for your dental health as well as your overall wellbeing. At The Private Dental Treatment Centre we believe in preventing problems from occurring rather than simply fixing things when they go wrong.
To ensure your teeth, mouth and gums remain in great condition, we recommend regular dental visits for examinations, plus our range of high quality dental hygiene treatments.
Our hygiene services include cleaning, scaling and polishing. For a happy, healthy mouth, your hygienist can remove stains, tartar, hard deposits and plaque. We'll also advise you on the best way to take care for your teeth at home, including correct flossing and brushing techniques and other oral hygiene techniques according to your personal requirements.
Routine and preventative care
Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a type of dental restoration used to fix teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or have a very large filling. The crown fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment (also called Endodontics) is needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected through tooth decay or damaged by an injury to your mouth. The treatment overall should feel no different to having an ordinary filling placed.
We'll check your bite, often referred to as TMJ disorder, which can cause some people to clench the jaw and grind their teeth at night. This can lead to facial pain, headaches, discomfort and clicking when biting or chewing, migraines, neck and shoulder pain and even back pain.
If you have advanced tooth decay or an impacted wisdom tooth, you may require oral surgery to have them safely extracted. Dentists have the right equipment and sterile environment in which to perform this type of procedure with the utmost care and your recovery can be fairly quick.
