As a private dental practice, our priority is to provide the very best dental care in a warm, friendly environment. We are committed to keeping fully up to date with modern dentistry techniques and materials in order to offer our patients the highest quality care and treatment.
We have the latest rotary instrumentation to make your root treatments better, faster and safer; the latest in impression materials, ensuring a higher definition and thereby a better finished product for your crowns, bridges and dentures; and the latest in local anaesthesia to assist in eliminating pain and shortening time spent in the surgery. Our sterilisation equipment and cross-infection procedures also exceed the statutory requirements.
We believe prevention is better than cure and to this end we offer the services of a dental hygienist who plays a vital role in preventing gum disease and promoting dental health. We are also able to provide a range of cosmetic treatments, such as tooth whitening, orthodontics, crowns and bridges.
We are a fully computerised dental surgery and we only use the best available equipment. These have the advantage of requiring a much lower dose of radiation, no chemicals are necessary to develop the X-rays (often a source of inaccuracy or poor quality), and the image is seen immediately on the computer screen after taking the X-ray.
We have an intra-oral camera to demonstrate to you areas of the mouth that may be difficult for you to see. This helps with oral hygiene demonstrations and also serves to show any areas of concern that might need treatment, such as tooth decay or gum disease – all that you would expect from one of the best private dental practices around.
