Removal of wisdom teeth
Most people do not have space in their jaws for their wisdom teeth which can result in pain, infection or damage to adjacent teeth. Wisdom teeth often need to be surgically removed and that can be done under general anaesthesia.
Dental decay is removed and cavities are filled with white fillings. Broken and chipped teeth can also be restored.
Tartar is a hard calcified deposit that forms on teeth and is usually removed during regular visits to the dentist. Irregular dental visits may result in heavy accumulation of tartar and often results in gum disease which may manifest as bleeding gums, receding gum line and loose teeth. A dental clean is carried out using special ultrasonic instruments to remove tartar and treat gum disease.
Some teeth may be infected, very loose or have big cavities. In some cases, these teeth may need to be removed to resolve pain and prevent the spread of infection.
There are many ways to replace missing teeth. A common teeth replacement method is a denture (also known as a plate) which may replace some or all of your teeth. Plates may be inserted immediately (immediate dentures) after removal of teeth, so you can wake up from your treatment with new teeth.
A dental implant is a titanium screw fixed to your jaw. A A crown can then be attached to the screw to replace a missing tooth, or a denture or bridge can be attached to multiple screws to replace multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are smaller and more comfortable than dentures or plates and will not be at risk of decay.
