Check-Up and Clean
A vital part of preventative dental care is visiting your dentist for a regular check-up and clean. Regardless of how good an oral hygiene routine you have at home, only a dentist can detect and treat oral health issues.
During a check-up and clean appointment, your dentist will do a thorough oral examination. They will look for any potential signs of tooth decay, gum disease, bone damage, oral cancer and other dental issues.
Your teeth and gums will then get a ‘deep clean’. Professional teeth cleaning is great for removing any build-up of plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach places.
When tooth decay goes untreated, it can cause major and ongoing damage to your tooth. If the infection spreads to the nerve chamber, it can bring about pain and discomfort and the need for extensive dental treatment.
Our dentists may recommend you have a dental filling if you have cavities as a result of decay or your tooth has a small chip or crack. A dental filling can help restore your tooth and prevent further damage. At Hills Dental Group, we use tooth coloured materials for dental fillings. This results in a natural-looking finish.
Root Canal Treatment
The inside of your tooth is known as ‘pulp’ and consists of nerves, blood vessels and soft tissues. There are several reasons why your tooth pulp may become infected. And if it does, it shouldn’t be ignored. The infection can spread to your gums and jaw with serious health consequences.
We perform root canal treatment to remove the infection from your tooth, reinforce it, and prevent further damage. Root canal treatment is a routine procedure in which our dentists have a lot of experience. We understand that having root canal treatment may be daunting for some patients. So, we do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible!
Healthy gums are essential for healthy teeth. When plaque and tartar build-up on your teeth, it can result in the onset of gum disease. Our dentists may recommend deeper cleaning treatments if your mouth is showing signs of gum disease. This procedure can help put a stop to the negative effects of gum disease and improve your oral health.
Teeth Grinding Treatment
Bruxism, commonly known as teeth grinding, is a condition where you grind or clench your teeth. If you suffer from Bruxism, you may subconsciously clench your teeth during the day or grind them whilst you sleep. This condition can result in extensive damage to your teeth over time.
At Hills Dental Group, we can provide you with several treatment options for protecting your teeth against the long-term effects of grinding and clenching.
