General dentistry, for both adults and children, plays a key role in the services that we provide at Ayling & Associates Dental Practice.
This includes preventative care, fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, root fillings, dentures and sport mouthguards.
This involves early detection of tooth decay, gum disease, enamel erosion and oral cancer screening.
At Ayling & Associates Dental Practice, we provide a range of different types of filling in order to restore teeth to their former functions and aesthetics.
Veneers are thin, porcelain facings that are applied to the outer surface of anterior teeth, to greatly improve their colour, shape and position. It is a straightforward process with outstanding aesthetic results.
A dental bridge is where a false tooth is placed into a gap in the mouth, using one, or both adjacent teeth. These neighbouring teeth will need to be strong enough to suuport the bridge. The bridge is usually made out of ceramic and the aesthetics are normally outstanding.
Unfortunately, sometimes the nerve in the tooth dies due to it sustaining an injury, or tooth decay, or where it has been heavily filled over time. If this is the case, the only option to save the tooth is to carry out root canal treatment.
If a patient has a number of teeth missing, the most popular option to fill the gaps is to provide a denture.
At Ayling & Associates Dental Practice, we generally provide two types of denture.
A denture made out of acrylic is the conventional option. The newer option is a flexible denture which has proved to be incredibly comfortable, with outstanding aesthetics, as it is completely metal free.
Sports mouthguards essentially help to protect teeth from sports injuries. It is paramount that you wear these custom made appliances if you are involved in the following sports - rugby, football, hockey, boxing, skiing, baseball & cricket.
