Root Canal Treatment
Our expert dentists are known for their exceptional, reliable and professional root canal treatments. Our treatments are designed to eliminate bacteria from the infected root canal and prevent reinfection of the tooth, this in turn allows the tooth to be functional again having a prolonged lifespan. In some cases kids teeth that are affected by decay, bacteria may spread into the pulp of the tooth causing pain, a partial root canal known as a pulpotomy can be done to prolong the lifespan of that tooth as in some cases early loss of children’s teeth can lead to crowding or malocclusions later in life which may require orthodontics to correct. →
Where gum disease does develop, it’s important to be treated swiftly and thoroughly to prevent long-term damage (bone loss and recession) and to negate its effects. We work closely with you to prevent the development of gum disease, since healthy gums are so integral to overall oral health. Expecting moms due to hormonal changes can also experience an exaggerated inflammatory response in their gums, it is important to get the gums checked and cleaned even during pregnancy. There has been linkages to preterm –low weight babies to gum disease in expecting mothers.
We provide customised sports mouthguards for kids and adults playing contact sports (such as footy, rugby, lacoste etc). Ask your dentist for colour options.
Our practice offers the latest in comfortable, convenient dentistry treatments with a full range of cosmetic dentistry services.We successfully provide treatment plans around each individual’s needs. →
