Why see a dentist that has the latest dental technologies?

Modern dental technologies have evolved greatly since many of us first visited the dentist. But what do these technologies offer the patient of today and the dentist that they are visiting.

The benefits of seeing a dentist that uses modern dental technologies include:

  • Better diagnosis
  • More accurate treatment
  • You, as the patient, have more control
  • Time saving
What are tooth coloured fillings made from?

Composite fillings are made from a tooth-coloured resin compound that restores the natural appearance of a decayed or previously filled tooth.

What are the advantages of tooth coloured fillings?

The benefits of getting tooth-coloured fillings includes:

  • One visit
  • You lose less of your healthy tooth
  • Strong material
  • They look better (or invisible!)
What are the alternatives to tooth coloured fillings?

Whilst composite resin fillings are preferable to silver fillings for the obvious cosmetic reasons, if your tooth area that is decayed is large or is subject to heavy chewing pressure, we may recommend another type of restoration. This will be discussed with your dentist at the time of your consultation.

What causes gum disease?

The main cause of gum disease is dental plaque, which is a bacterial build up that accumulates on your teeth.

When plaque builds up bacteria begins to infect the gums causing bleeding and inflammation. At the same time, the bone and ligament around the tooth begins to break down.
