We employ digital Panoramic and intra-oral x-ray technology to provide you with a comprehensive oral examination. A thorough investigation of the teeth, jaws and periodontium (gums) will enable us to reach a complete understanding of your present state of oral health.
Regular check-ups are essential to the maintenance of good oral hygiene and overall health for both adults and children.
We aim to create an oral health program specifically designed to your specific needs to help keep your teeth and gums in optimum condition.
Removal of calculus (tartar) by means of scaling and superficial staining by polishing provides the basis by which oral disease can be controlled and managed.
A thorough oral hygiene program will also include Fluoride Treatment which is provided mostly for children and adults if required, as a preventative measure against tooth decay together with oral hygiene instruction.
Preventative fissure sealants for children are a most effective means of preventing tooth decay in the premolar and molar teeth, as these sealants essentially seal the fissures (grooves) on the biting surfaces of these teeth where decay most often begins.
At Colosseum Dental Studio, we use tooth-coloured (white) composite fillings to restore teeth and fill cavities protecting against further tooth decay. We also use white composite fillings to replace old defective silver amalgam fillings.
Root Canal Therapy
Also known as Endodontic treatment, this is used to eliminate pain and infection from infected teeth, thus preventing the need for extraction and allowing retention of the tooth. The purpose of root canal treatment is to remove inflamed tissue or bacteria inside the infected root canal, thus allowing the surrounding tissues to heal. The root is then filled with an inert material rendering the tooth unresponsive to any stimuli.
It is unfortunate that some patients fear of the dentist is so deep-seated that we are only sought out once very little of the tooth or teeth can be salvaged. As a result, the tooth must be extracted but we strive to extract teeth in the gentlest manner possible.
The loss of several teeth can be restored with dentures, which must be custom made and designed for each individual patient to ensure full restoration of appearance and function. Dentures that are correctly developed and fitted to the patient’s mouth and gums will restore a natural looking and secure, bite and smile. There is a choice of acrylic (plastic) dentures or chrome (metal framework) dentures.
