Routine Check-up and Consultation
You can book an appointment and drop-in for a discussion on your dental health. We recommend a dental check-up twice a year, even if you feel that your teeth are healthy. Regardless of the fact that you have come for a general check-up, or with a problem in your teeth, we will first perform a detailed examination of your mouth to reach to the root cause of the problem. During an initial consultation we will investigate the soft and hard tissues of your mouth. We will be checking for gum disease, tooth decay, causes of bad breath, and bite irregularities. We will also advise you on how your oral health can be improved as well as how your smile can be enhanced.
At Easter Ross Dental Care, we emphasise on a thorough check-up of your mouth and provide you advice regarding various concerns including:
- Gum disease
- Sensitive Teeth
- Oral Healthcare Maintenance
- Bad Breath
- Mouth Cancer Screening
- Dental Health Checks
- Oral Health Education
Preventive Dental Care
Prevention is better than cure, and a stitch in time saves nine. Our firm belief that you’re always better off preventing dental disease rather than having them and then getting them treated has motivated us to present you a wide variety of preventive dental procedures. These do not limit to cleaning and polishing of your teeth to prevent decay and disease, but also many others. We have various procedures for decay prevention like application of fluorides on your teeth and sealing the deep fissures in your tooth surface which may harbour bacteria that cause tooth decay.
Our care doesn’t end here. We want you to know how you can take care of your teeth at home! We provide you knowledge about the way you should brush your teeth, as well as the best ways to take care of your mouth and teeth.For further knowledge on our preventive care see Frequently asked questions.To discuss about the treatments and get a check-up, Fix an appointment.
Scaling and polishing of teeth
Your teeth need professional cleaning at least twice a year, no matter how well you brush your teeth.
Sometimes, we may recommend you to get your teeth cleaned as a part of your treatment needs.This is when your teeth are professionally cleaned by the dentist or hygienist.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal treatment (also called endodontics) tackles infection at the centre of a tooth (the root canal system). When the blood or nerve supply of the tooth has become infected, if root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out. During treatment, all the infection is removed from inside the root canal system. The root canal is filled and the tooth is sealed with a filling or crown to stop it from becoming infected again. Root canal treatment usually requires at least two or three visits to your dentist. Root canal procedures are highly successful and can make the world of difference to how you feel about your smile and also in general. If you have a toothache which has become intolerable, call us now to discuss your emergency dentistry options.
Dentures or false teeth-standard and flexible
More commonly known as false teeth, dentures are fitted in place of natural teeth. A full set is used to replace all your teeth. A part set is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Dentures are custom-made using impressions (mouldings) from your gums. They’re usually made from metal or plastic. They’re removable so you can clean them, although part dentures can be brushed at the same time as your other teeth. A full set needs to be removed and soaked in a cleaning solution. Dentures are important if you lose your natural teeth, as losing your teeth makes it difficult to chew your food, which will adversely affect your diet and may cause your facial muscles to sag. They help with speech, chewing, add support to your lips and chin as well as improving the appearance of your smile.
Broken or knocked out tooth
It’s common to have teeth broken, chipped, or knocked out, especially for children. If the tooth is just chipped, make a non-emergency dental appointment to have it smoothed down and filled, or to have a crown. If the tooth has been knocked out or is badly broken, see a dentist immediately. Your dentist may fit a denture or bridge.
Fillings are used to repair a hole in a tooth caused by decay. The most common type of filling is an amalgam, made from a mixture of metals including mercury, silver, tin, copper and zinc. Your dentist will offer the most appropriate type of filling according to your clinical needs. This includes white fillings, if appropriate under NHS, otherwise white fillings are available privately if needed as well. Dental inlays and onlays are fillings used to repair rear teeth with mild to moderate decay or cracked and fractured teeth that are not sufficiently damaged to need a crown. Ideal candidates for inlay or onlay work typically have unusually extensive damage or decay in the tooth structure to be successfully treated using a filling, but have sufficient healthy tooth remaining to avoid the need for a crown. This allows the dentist to conserve more of the patient’s original tooth structure. Further, If NHS patients wish to get cosmetic treatment not covered by NHS, for example tooth coloured white fillings on back teeth.
Whether you are confident on dental chair or nervous, everybody is a bit worried when it comes to removal of tooth which can be for various reasons like orthodontics, unrestorable tooth, etc. You will always receive compassionate and personalised care when you visit a Easter Ross Dental Care. We welcome you to book a free consultation with our dentist.
Wisdom Tooth RemovalThe wisdom teeth grow at the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through, usually in your late teens or early twenties. Most people have four wisdom teeth, one in each corner. Wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only emerge partially. Wisdom teeth that grow through in this way are known as impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be removed on the NHS. Your dentist may perform the procedure or may refer you to a dentist with a special interest or to a hospital’s oral and maxillofacial unit.You can also be referred for private wisdom teeth treatment if you wish.
If you have bleeding gums or serious gum problem, you may have appointment with our Dentists to discuss your oral health during which your mouth will be thoroughly checked for signs of gum disease or other illness. You will also receive oral hygiene advice that is tailored to your individual circumstances with the required management
A crown is a type of cap that completely covers a real tooth. It’s made from either metal, or porcelain and metal, or just porcelain and is fixed in your mouth. Crowns can be fitted where a tooth has broken, decayed or been damaged, or just to make a tooth look better.
To fit a crown, the old tooth will need to be drilled down so it’s like a small peg the crown will be fixed onto. It can take some time for the lab to prepare a new crown, so you probably won’t have the crown fitted on the same day
A crown is a tooth shaped structure which fits over the existing natural tooth to protect weakened or worn teeth to restore the tooth and supports tooth to a great extent from breakages.
Dental crowns also known as Caps are a popular form of treatment for patients with damaged, broken or worn-down teeth.
A bridge is a fixed replacement for a missing tooth or teeth. It’s made by taking an impression of the surrounding teeth, which will eventually support the bridge.
A bridge is usually created from precious metal and porcelain and will be fixed in your mouth (unlike dentures, which can be removed).
It is permanently fixed to the adjacent natural tooth or teeth, the bridge acts as an anchor for replacement teeth. It will also improve your smile and your appearance.
