As general dentists we diagnose, treat, and manage your overall oral health care needs, including root canal treatment, fillings, tooth extraction and preventive education. These techniques can overlap with cosmetic dentistry procedures as modern restorations are designed to look and feel natural or improve one’s existing appearance. All procedures are carried out with the application of modern anaesthetics.
If you’ve experienced tooth decay, or have lost a part of your tooth for any reason, you may require a filling or inlays/onlays.
In the case of tooth decay, we may be able to remove it and replace the missing part of your tooth with an amalgam (silver) or composite (tooth-coloured) filling, making it strong again.
Quick and comfortable procedure that can relieve your pain and save your natural tooth. Modern endodontic treatment is very similar to a routine filling and can usually be completed in one or two appointments, depending upon the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime.
You’ll be back to smiling, biting and chewing with ease in no time.
Although permanent teeth were meant to last a lifetime, there are a number of reasons why tooth extraction may be needed. The most common are:
To remove teeth which have become unrestorable through tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma. Sometimes wisdom teeth are stuck and unable to grow normally and may cause recurrent infections of the gum. In orthodontics if the teeth are crowded, sound teeth may be extracted to create space so the rest of the teeth can be aligned. The vast majority can be performed quickly and painlessly by using local anesthetic injections. We provide both non-surgical and surgical tooth extractions.
At our clinic we pay particular attention to painless treatment and we always strive to calm down children and nervous patients as much as we can. We use injections for local anesthesia anytime it is necessary or when a patient requests it.
Waage Dental Clinic is equipped with a modern X-ray machine – Conebeam Xr – that assists us in various treatments from regular check-ups, detecting the position of wisdom teeth to 3D pictures that help us plan tooth extractions and implant treatments. Conebeam is extremely efficient as it provides us with three dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. Those images allow for very precise treatment planning.
Maintaining a healthy smile starts with prevention and regular dental check-ups. It’s important to keep up-to-date with regular appointments, to ensure that your teeth and gums are looking and feeling its best.
