Periodontal or gum disease is an infection affecting the tissues surrounding the teeth. These tissues include the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Periodontal disease is usually a slow, painless, progressive condition. Most adults with this disease are unaware they have it but if diagnosed and treated early the teeth can be saved.

Endodontics (Root Canal Treatments)

Deep tooth decay, deep fractures or an injury due to trauma, can cause serious damage and infection to the pulp. If the pulp becomes infected, the infection can spread through the entire root canal system of the tooth. This will eventually lead to an abscess. Root canal, or endodontic treatment, cleans out the infected pulp chamber and repairs the damage so the tooth can be saved.

Patient Stories
As a family we have been patients for over 20 years. Taking the children for dental work such as teeth removal and treatments has never been an anxious or daunting experience for them as they are always made to feel so at ease.
The surgery is extremely clean and hygienic, the professionalism and consistency of all staff is of a very high standard. We’re made to feel very comfortable and relaxed at all times, we would never change our dentist!

Paul S Seaman
Patient Stories

Arrived nervous but was soon reassured by the dentist. Absolutely pain free tooth extraction. Wonderful calming professional dentist. I am truly amazed and thankful for the wonderful service I received.

Miss Lorraine Cummings
Patient Stories
My appointment for a filling on a fractured tooth started off in a very surprising way. Having told the dentist I was a bit of wimp she said I would be alright and started doing something in my mouth.
I thought she was rubbing something on my gums before the injections but when she had finished I saw her put the syringe down. I actually asked if she had just given me the injections and, to my astonishment, she confirmed she had indeed done just that. I hadn’t felt them.This was a first for me and a very pleasant one. The rest of the treatment was painless and efficient.
