Where fillings are necessary, we like to keep the amount of drilling to a minimum. We have undergone further training and have invested in special equipment for us to achieve this aim.
Minimum intervention (MI) in dentistry focuses on the causes of disease and allows for ultra-conservative treatment that is more patient-friendly than traditional dentistry.
Amalgam fillings are no longer the material of choice! One of the most exciting developments in dentistry is the introduction of tooth coloured fillings.
Composite resin materials allow your dentist to use a variety of subtle tooth shades to recreate the natural colouring of your tooth. This helps disguise fillings so you can smile and laugh with confidence.
Tooth-coloured fillings are not suitable in every case and you can be assured that your dentist will provide the best possible treatment for each individual case.
Root canal treatment and other endodontic procedures have evolved a great deal in the last few years. Through endodontics, it is now possible to predict, treat and save a tooth that, just years ago, would have required extraction.
With root canal treatment, your dentist removes the inflamed, infected or necrotic (dead) nerve from inside your tooth, giving the area a careful cleaning and then inserting a root filling material into the root where the original nerve was.
Are you embarrassed by the dark margins around your crowns or are you forever breaking fillings?
Latest technology in crown and bridgework has produced stronger and more cosmetic materials to rebuild broken down teeth. Dental crowns are used to treat teeth that have lost a significant part of its structure, which can happen as a result of tooth decay, failure of a large filling or heavy tooth wear.
A dental crown aims to strengthen an already weakened tooth. A tooth-like cap is custom made for your mouth to cover the damaged tooth and help protect and prolong the life of tooth, whilst giving a natural cosmetic appearance. Almost all the crowns from Orange Tree Dental will have been made using the latest Cad-Cam technology which gives an outstanding fit.
