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 The Family Dental Center, 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. 


Dental Implants


A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

The dental implant procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, but also is considered a form of cosmetic dentistry.

People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. Additionally, biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits, leading to secondary health problems like malnutrition.

By replacing missing tooth roots, dental implants provide people with the strength and stability required to eat all the foods they love, without struggling to chew. Additionally, dental implants stimulate and maintain jaw bone, preventing bone loss and helping to maintain facial features.


Root Canal Treatment (RCT's) 

When pain arises from a tooth, the tooth may have become infected and require root canal treatment. 

In root canal treatment, we first anaesthetize the tooth fully to ensure that the treatment is carried out comfortably with no pain at all. 


We then isolate the tooth with a rubber dam to ensure that the field is kept as sterile as possible and new bacteria contamination of the tooth by saliva is avoided. 

We establish the length of root canals and then thoroughly clean the canals with modern flexible instruments (files) and powerful disinfectants to ensure that the canals are shaped properly and all the bacterial colonies are removed from the tooth. We usually use our files once, in order to minimize fracture and reduce risk of cross infection. 

We then fill the canals with inert root canal filling material (gutta percha) to prevent re-infection of the tooth. 

You may experience some post-operative pain which usually settles down with pain killers.

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available - Complete and Partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.


Complete Denture - Complete dentures made after all the teeth have been removed or missing and the gum tissue has begun to heal, a conventional denture is ready for placement in the mouth about eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed.


Partial Dentures - A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.



If your tooth is damaged but not lost, a crown can be used to restore its shape, appearance and function. You may need a crown if you have a root canal, a large filling in a tooth or a broken tooth.

A crown, also called a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth. The crown restores the tooth and protects it from further damage. Crowns can also be used to cover a discoloured or misshapen tooth. A tooth that has been fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth.


Different types of crowns

Crowns are made from various types of materials. Depending on which tooth needs a crown, your dentist will suggest a material, or combination of materials, that is right for you.

Metal crowns are made of gold or Ni- Cr alloy. They generally last a long time and won’t chip or break. They tend not to wear down your opposing natural teeth. However, the colour does not look natural, particularly on front teeth.

Composite crowns look natural. They won’t chip as easily as porcelain crowns, but they tend to wear more quickly from chewing. Tooth brushing tends to remove the highly polished surface of composite crowns and this causes them to stain more easily.

Full ceramic crowns look the most natural. They are more stronger than porcelain fused to metal or composite crown and doesn't chip easily. Because of this, they can be placed on back as well as front teeth.

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns look natural and are stronger than porcelain or composite crowns. They won’t chip as easily as porcelain or ceramic crowns. However, depending on their design, the metal may show if your gums are thin or shrink.


Tooth Impactions 


An impacted tooth is a tooth that gets blocked as it is erupting through the gum into your mouth. Wisdom teeth and upper canines often are impacted.

Wisdom teeth usually begin to come in between the ages of 17 and 21. Dentists call these teeth third molars. They may become impacted because there's not enough room in your mouth for them. A wisdom tooth also might be trying to come in sideways. Or, it might be tilted in your jaw.

An impacted tooth can be painless. You may not even realize it's there. However, when an impacted wisdom tooth tries to come in, the flap of gum on top of it can become infected and swollen. This can hurt. You might even feel pain in nearby teeth, or in the ear on that side of your face.

An impacted tooth can lead to an infection called pericoronitis. If untreated, this infection can spread to the throat or into the neck. Severe infections require a hospital stay and surgery.


Impacted teeth also can get cavities. An impacted tooth can push on the neighboring molar. This can lead to tooth movement, decay or gum disease. Rarely, impacted teeth can cause cysts or other growths in the jaw. 


Pericoronitis can be tricky to treat. That's because the gum tissue covering the tooth won't go away until the wisdom tooth emerges naturally, the tissue is removed or the tooth is removed. Treatment may include cleaning the area thoroughly by rinsing under the flap with water to remove bits of food and pus. If the area is infected, you'll most likely be given antibiotics.

We will explain how to keep the area clean, which is the best way to prevent the problem from returning. This usually involves brushing and flossing daily and rinsing your mouth with water several times a day. These steps will help to prevent food from getting stuck under the gum flap.

In some cases, we may suggest removing the erupting tooth or may want to remove the tooth above it, which bites down on the gum below.
