West Street Dental
Procedures the BDA considers to be considered as general dentistry include check-ups, fillings, minor oral surgery and extractions, root canal treatments, crowns and dentures. Each procedure can be performed by a general dentist, but they also might be done by specialists in some domains if their expertise is required.
At West Street Dental Practice, we aim to make you feel as relaxed and as comfortable as possible as well as will give you peace on mind with a thorough check-up. Dental examinations give us the opportunity to identify and treat potential problems before they become painful or complex. We want you to feel confident in your smile and will give on-going advice to enable you to achieve your optimum dental health.
An extensive check-up examination at our practice is the best place to start. If you feel apprehensive about visiting the dentist, please let us know.
White fillings are used in the front or the rear of the mouth. They are the ideal, natural looking way, to bring back strength & functionality to your damaged teeth. We can build up cracked or chipped teeth with white fillings, to restore each tooth to its natural appearance or, it can be used to close gaps, reshape uneven or short teeth. Fillings offer a quick and affordable way to correct a variety of dental problems, however we generally recommend that fillings of any kind are replaced only when it is clinically necessary.
ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Root canal treatment (RCT) is for a tooth where the nerve has been damaged by decay or trauma. This procedure is relatively comfortable and often painless, as the tooth is anaesthetised during treatment.
RCT gives a chance to save the tooth that would otherwise have to be extracted. This treatment is also sometimes necessary prior to crowning a tooth. This treatment usually involves the removal of the pulp tissue of the tooth when it becomes irreversibly inflamed or infected.
A Denture is an appliance that replaces some, or all of your natural teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, and gives support to your cheeks and lips.
A partial denture fills in the spaces created by your missing teeth. It is attached to your natural remaining teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments.
Dentures offer many benefits to those who wear them. While they may need some initial adjustment and getting used to, they can enhance your smile as well as your long-term confidence.
