Treetops Dental Surgery provide a full range of general dental treatments including fillings, inlays and onlays and Hygiene Therapy. We are acknowledged by the dental industry to give the highest quality of care to our patients whether their needs are basic or complex.
Teeth that are damaged or decayed will need to be restored. Your ability to chew properly will be compromised if the problem is not addressed. In some cases, a filling can protect against further decay, but this option may not provide the necessary protection your case needs. It is also possible the tooth is still relatively healthy, which means you may require a filling.
We have a dental laboratory on-site, meaning that the dentists can work closely with the technician ensuring that all work is carried out to the highest of standards.
All denture are repaired whilst patients wait. We offer denture repairs for non Treetops patients.
What we can offer:
Routine Oral Health Examinations
Routine dental check-ups are an important basis of good dental hygiene, at these checkups not only are your teeth and gums examined for cavities and signs of decay, but also the overall condition of your mouth, tongue, lips and throat. The positive news is that some oral diseases will form a long time before the symptoms become apparent to you, and if detected early by your dentist, it can be treated rapidly with an excellent chance of prevention or cure, therefore a routine examination is an appointment that does so much more than just a check up.
Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. At Treetops Dental Surgery we use either Amalgam (silver coloured metal) or composite (white filling). Composite fillings match the natural tooth colour as best as possible for a more natural look.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays can be used as an alternative to regular dental fillings. They are a type of bespoke dental restoration treatment used to fill cavities and gaps within the inside of the tooth. Onlays and Inlays can be used over regular fillings when the teeth in question are particularly weak or have suffered from large areas of decay.
Inlays and onlays are carefully pre-moulded at a dental laboratory; they make for strong, stable substitutions for part of the tooth, being able to withstand being placed in areas in the front and back of the mouth.
Inlays and onlays are used in molars or premolars, when the tooth has experienced too much damage to support a basic filling, but not so much damage that a crown is necessary.
If all cusps and the entire surface of the tooth is covered this is then known as a crown.
A large number of cases involving headaches, muscle spasms and pain in the jaw are a dental problem. If your teeth don’t close together properly, are heavily worn, or you have ringing in your ears and difficulty in opening or closing your mouth, you may well be suffering from TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) problems.
Relief can be obtained immediately via a wide range of dental treatments by addressing the cause of the imbalance, just one of these options may be by using a custom made mouthguard of a night while you sleep, as one of the common causes of TMJ is bruxism or teeth grinding of a night.
