Services

Routine Restorative dental care is provided to a high standard utilising the best materials available. We offer a full range of more advanced restorative techniques including white fillings and porcelain inlays or veneers for teeth which may be more broken down. In addition bridges can be designed to replace missing teeth and thus avoid wearing dentures. Other cosmetic services are available such as tooth whitening to help improve the colour of teeth.

Fear prevents many people from seeking help. We fully appreciate the real difficulties that some patients may have and can therefore offer sedation to help such patients cope with treatment.

Endodontics or root canal therapy can allow the preservation of many badly broken down or abscessed teeth, which would otherwise be lost.

Around 90% of adults have some degree of gum disease. Our hygienist treats this, and helps to prevent it from advancing.

Implants

Stephen Shaffery is a member of the Association of Dental Implantology and specialises in this area of dentistry. We are one of only a few Practices in Nottingham who receives Implant Referrals.

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots enabling teeth to be replaced permanently. They can be used to replace single teeth or groups of missing teeth, eliminating the need for dentures.

If you have missing teeth, or already have dentures which are perhaps uncomfortable or cause you embarrassment, implants can be the ideal alternative. Dental implants bond and integrate with living bone to provide stable and permanent fixtures for crowns and bridges and dentures. Unlike conventional bridges it is not necessary to grind or cut the adjacent teeth and implants help prevent thinning and shrinkage of the jawbone which occurs when teeth are lost.

Like artificial joints, dental implants are made of titanium. They are placed into the jawbone and left to bond with the bone for a few months after which they can used in the same way as a natural tooth root to support crowns bridges or dentures.

Implants need to be cared for carefully and our hygenists help patients with implants to look after them effectively. With care, implants can be expected to last many years.

They will check the gum around every tooth to see if there has been any advanced gum disease. They will also record all the areas where there is any pocketing.

Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign is a pioneering new technique, which straightens teeth without the need for metal braces or destructive porcelain veneers.

Invisalign use a series of nearly 'invisible', custom fit, removable mouth trays, or aligners, to straighten teeth without the need for metal wires or brackets.

The aligners are made using state-of-the art computer imaging technology, which is the first of its kind in the world. The aligners are comfortable and removable, so patients can eat and drink as normal during the treatment process. And with no metal or wires, there is less chance of abrasions, or damage being caused to teeth.

The total treatment time can range from 9 to 18 months, according to each individual's treatment plan. For more information on the Invisalign system, visit www.invisalign.co.uk.
