All aspects of general dentistry are provided to our patients. This includes such things as general check-ups, cleans, fillings and extractions.
Porcelain Veneers are thin tooth-coloured porcelain shells that are carefully crafted to cover the front of unsightly teeth. They are a more conservative treatment than a crown and can often be used as an alternative if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy. Veneers are often used for cosmetic concerns on the front anterior teeth.
Root Canal Treatment, or Endodontics, involves treating the nerves inside teeth. Unfortunately, deep decay or trauma may result in a nerve dying in a tooth - which is often a very painful experience. When this occurs there are two options, either remove the tooth or perform Root Canal Treatment. Many millions of teeth each year are saved from extraction by having root canal treatment. All general dental practitioners are trained to perform Root Canal Treatment however the difficult cases may be referred to a Root Canal specialist called an Endodontist.
Endodontists are specialists in saving teeth through Root Canal Treatment and are committed to helping you maintain your natural smile for a lifetime. Dr Jeeson Sajeev is an experienced Endodontist and has a high success rate in handling such special problems and is available to diagnose and treat tooth pain and perform root canal treatments.
Sleep Apnoea and snoring can potentially be harmful to your health and may ultimately lead to life-threatening conditions such as a stroke, heart disease and increased blood pressure. The treatment of snoring or Sleep Apnoea with the oral appliance therapy is safe, painless and effective. The appliance used is easy to wear and is small and light so they are easy to carry during travel. We can professionally treat your snoring and Sleep Apnoea concern with the use of an oral appliance that will be fitted by a dentist who is trained in their use.
We provide Minor Oral Surgery services including dental extractions and minor soft tissue surgery. Also with the necessary referral from your orthodontist, we can provide oral surgery related to orthodontic treatments for both adults and children.
An artificial crown or ‘cap’ is often the best way to strengthen a tooth. It fits over the prepared existing tooth and replaces the natural crown. It is permanently fixed for long-term function and is generally made from porcelain to suit your natural tooth colour.
Crowns also play a vital role in sealing and protecting teeth that have undergone Root Canal Treatment as they become very weak with such extensive work and the crown can strengthen it and lengthen the tooth's life span.
For stained or discoloured teeth, bleaching can lighten and whiten your teeth. Bleaching is a safe procedure to undergo when instructed by a qualified dentist. We use custom made trays and the SDI Pola Night Advanced Tooth Whitening System, which contains 18% carbamide peroxide.
As we age our teeth age with us and gradually deteriorate. If teeth are badly affected by wear, trauma, decay or gum disease, your dentist may suggest extraction as the best treatment option. Even at a relatively young age, some people have extensive loss of teeth. When many teeth are lost or extracted, a denture can be fitted to maintain normal chewing, bite, speech and appearance of upper and lower jaws. Dentures can be made of acrylic or metal. Your dentist will advise the best material for you.
AirGARD™ is a thermoplastic mouthguard with numerous air inclusions that increase energy absorption and reduce transmitted forces.
AirGARD™ has patented air-cell technology with improved performance and absorbs more energy for a given thickness which transmits 30% less force and absorbs more energy than conventional mouthguards.
With sport use, AirGARD™ has been proven to reduce damage to teeth, reduce the risk of concussion and reduce trauma to lips and tongue
Bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of an ‘artificial’ tooth anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. If a tooth is lost through an accident or is too badly decayed or broken down to save with a crown, a bridge may be the treatment of choice. Bridges are often made of porcelain and metal alloy. Porcelain is strong and can be made to match the colour of natural teeth.
Bruxism is excessive clenching or grinding of the teeth that can lead to excessive wear on the teeth and may cause permanent damage to the teeth and the jaw joints. We work in a number of ways to assist you to control your teeth clenching problems by first finding the initial issue causing the clenching problem then we can treat it using various treatment options suited to you specifically.
We have Relative Analgesia (Happy Gas) available to our patients, particularly those with mild to moderate anxiety. The gas can be used on the young or older patients and can make a visit to the dentist a very pleasant experience. This does require the necessary consultation with the dentist before undergoing any treatment using the gas.
