Wisdom Tooth Removal Norwest And Other General Services
At Dentist Norwest we provide a comprehensive range of general dentistry services to help you maintain a healthy, happy smile. You can read more about these and our wisdom tooth removal service below.
A general check-up in Norwest is essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Not only does it help us to monitor your oral health but it enables us to detect any problems in their early stages before they worsen. During a check-up, your mouth, gums, and teeth will be carefully examined for signs of disease or infection. We’ll also check for signs of oral cancer. In addition, a couple of X-rays will be taken in case anything untoward is happening below the gumline. That done, we’ll follow up with a clean and polish of your teeth and should you require any dental treatments, then we’ll get you booked in as quickly as possible to get your oral health back on track. In most cases, we recommend a check-up every six months.
Wisdom Tooth Removal in Norwest
If you’re experiencing pain and discomfort with any of your wisdom teeth or they’re impacting on your other teeth, it may be necessary to have them removed. Our skilled dentist will be able to perform this surgery on-site and ensure that you are no longer in any discomfort. Wisdom tooth removal in Norwest requires an anaesthetic to make the surgery pain-free for the patient. Your mouth may feel a little sore for a couple of days and there may be some swelling, however, over the counter painkillers should offer some relief and you’ll soon be feeling better.
Do you get poor quality sleep and wake up with a painful jaw? This may be due to grinding your teeth. This condition is more common than you think and it can even cause migraines, tooth wear, and earache. At our clinic, we provide a variety of solutions for teeth grinding in Norwest which often includes wearing a mouth guard to protect your teeth at night. As part of our holistic care, we try to determine the cause of your tooth grinding and find solutions which may help. It’s suggested anxiety can be a reason for teeth grinding, and sometimes counselling can help with this.
Mercury Free Tooth Fillings in Norwest
If one or more of your teeth are decayed and have cavities it will be necessary to have them filled. Our dentist, Dr Sejal Rai, will make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed before beginning the procedure. Don’t worry, you’ll be given an anaesthetic to help numb any pain. She’ll remove any decayed material and clean the cavity before applying a mercury-free white filling to blend in with your surrounding teeth for a seamless finish. Depending on the size of the filling, it will either sit inside the cavity or cover the biting surface of the tooth. This is then hardened with a special light and smoothed so that it doesn’t feel rough against your tongue.
If you’re looking to replace several or multiple missing teeth then you may want to consider dentures in Norwest. These are removable false teeth that sit on a plastic or acrylic base and are held in place by suction. They’re a quick tooth replacement solution, especially if, for whatever reason, you don’t want or can’t have dental implants and restore both the aesthetics of your smile and your bite functionality. Dentures look far more natural these days and are lightweight and comfortable. Best of all you can have your new dentures fitted and be smiling with confidence, in just a couple of weeks. You’ll also be given advice about the best way to clean them and keep them in good condition, going forward.
Root Canal Treatment
Everyone wants to save a natural tooth if it’s possible. Well, fortunately, our endodontist in Norwest gives you the best chance of keeping your natural teeth. Our expertise means that we can get to the bottom of your tooth pain and perform root canal treatment. It’s always recommended to seek dental help as soon as possible, as this will improve the success rate of root canal treatment. Our endodontist will remove any bacteria that is present, as well as remove the tooth root if this is going to be the best option for you. The tooth canal will then be washed out, filled, and sealed before capping with a dental crown for added protection. A couple of visits are usually required, particularly if there is an infection to clear.
