As well as providing our more specialised services, we still maintain our focus on the provision of high quality general dentistry based on a foundation of enhancing our patients’ oral health.
We provide fillings, root canal fillings, extractions, dentures, bridges, wisdom teeth removal and a full range of preventative treatments including hygiene treatment & fluoride application. At your routine examination appointment we will make a thorough assessment of your current oral health and give you a range of options for treatment, some options may be essential, such as hygiene therapy or treatment to arrest decay. Other treatments suggested may be more “cosmetic” such as teeth whitening. We will also check at each appointment for any abnormalities in the soft tissues of the mouth which may be caused by a disease such as cancer.
You will always be offered a written treatment plan and have a clear understanding of the costs involved before treatment commences.
We may well need to take x/rays to enable a more accurate assessment of dental health. We are fortunate in having digital x/ray systems at Ferndale which operate at a reduced level of radiation (less than the normal exposure from background radiation) and produces images which are instantly available for treatment planning. For more complex work, including root canal therapy, surgery & dental implants, we have a CT scanner at the practice which can produce a 3D image of your jaw and teeth, and provides vital information about the underlying structures or defects and the position of vital nerves.
