general and family dentistry

Our aim is to offer a progressive range of treatments for you and your family that help you keep a healthy smile, combat gum disease and to ensure that your natural teeth are preserved as long as possible. 

General dentistry involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions, disorders and diseases affecting the teeth, gums and maxillofacial region of the body.

dental examinations

Regular dental examinations are an important part of preventative health care.

During a dental exam the dentist will check your teeth for cavities and evidence of gum disease. In addition to this they will evaluate your risk of developing other dental problems, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. A dental exam may also include dental x-rays or other diagnostic procedures.

scale and polish

Gum disease is often caused by a build up of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Scaling involves removal of deposits of plaque, often with an ultrasonic instrument. Polishing will smooth away minor imperfections and remove stains.

dental fillings

Dental fillings are used to repair cavities in teeth caused by tooth decay, cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down. 

These days, several types of dental filling materials are available. Teeth can be filled with gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, tooth coloured plastic materials, composite resins or materials containing glass particles called glass ionomers. 

root canal treatment

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is very badly decayed or has become infected. During a root canal procedure, the inside of the tooth is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. Without this treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth may become infected leading to a dental abscess.

crowns and bridges

Both crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, they are cemented onto your existing teeth and can only be removed by the dentist. Crowns can be used to cover and strengthen a badly damaged tooth. Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. 


Although permanent teeth can last a lifetime, sometimes they become so badly damaged that they need to be removed or extracted. In addition, extractions may be required to relieve crowded mouths to prepare for orthodontic treatment. Loosening of the teeth caused by gum disease or infection of the tissues and bone that support the teeth may also necessitate extraction.


Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth. Conventional dentures can be made from plastic (acrylic) or metal and are removable.
