General Dentistry


Fillings are on of the ways your dentist can replace or restore missing part of your tooth structure. This loss of tooth structure can be caused due to decay or breakage. The material usually used to restore the tooth is called composite resin, and is a tooth coloured material. 

Extractions (including wisdom teeth removal):

A procedure consisting of the removal of a tooth. This could be due to extensive decay where the tooth is longer restorable, extensive bone loss where the tooth is mobile, or for orthodontic purposes. 

Extraction of Wisdom teeth are usually required due to the unusual positioning of the teeth. in most cases surgical extraction is usually required. If positioning of wisdom teeth is too severe the dentist may refer you to see a specialist Oral Surgeon.

Root Canal Treatment: 

Root canal treatment is performed to save a tooth that has been badly damaged due to decay, disease or injury. 
Once root canal treatment has been completed, in most cases a crown is recommended to protect, strengthen and further seal the broken down tooth. 


An artificial crown constructed with porcelain or gold material. Crowns are like a helmet for your tooth - they protect and add strength. Crowns are recommended when there is minimal tooth structure left, your natural tooth has a deep crack, or after root canal treatment. 


Bridges are usually constructed of porcelain and metal alloy as they need to be strong. A bridge replaces 1 or more missing teeth and consists of an artificial tooth anchored to the adjacent teeth with a crown. 


Implants are used to replace missing teeth or be anchor points for dentures allowing better retention and stability. Implants are placed under a surgical treatment setup within our practice. Consultations and x-rays will be required prior to implant bookings. 


Removable dentures replace missing teeth. Dentures are made of full acrylic or a combination of acrylic and chrome. Dentures can replace one tooth or all the way up to a full set.
