What types of advanced dentistry treatments do you offer?
Our experienced team of qualified dental experts can deliver the latest advanced dentistry solutions for patients in need of – Endodontics, Periodontics, dental implants and occlusion treatment.
Our Periodontists are specialists in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of gum disease – also known as periodontal disease.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and is caused by bacteria that live in the mouth, gradually degrading bones over time whilst the patient is unaware, hence why this is often referred to as a ‘silent disease’.
Our Periodontists help patients to manage their gum disease and work with them to prevent any future or further tooth loss which without treatment would be inevitable.
Also known as ‘root canal treatment’, Endodontics focuses on the treatment and management of conditions within the inner layer of the tooth (pulp). When a tooth is subject to severe decay or deep cracks it can become inflamed or infected which can often lead to tooth loss or removal if not effectively treated.
With Endodontic treatment, our dentists endeavour where possible to try to save the affected teeth and treat them rather than just remove them.
This type of treatment usually involves a thorough clean and removal of the infection from the pulp area followed by a sealant to help prevent further infections.
Dental implants are a reliable, long term solution for patients that have lost one or more teeth.
These implants are extremely realistic and look and feel just like real teeth – providing life changing results for some patients who can feel confident again after struggling with tooth loss.
A comfortable and natural-looking alternative to dentures and bridges – implants use a titanium screw to replicate the root of a tooth and provides long lasting results that won’t harm or damage adjacent teeth.
Occlusion is the name in dentistry used to describe the contact between the teeth when they approach each other, how they meet and the way they bite together. A misaligned bite can cause a number of issues for patients from worn, painful teeth to gum disease, tooth loss and teeth grinding, which is why it’s important to seek treatment to prevent further complications.
Our team provide a range of effective treatments to solve dental occlusions which we can discuss with you to help decide which is best for your individual needs. These can include medication, braces, tooth adjustment, bite guards or tooth replacement.
3 SHAPE TRIOS
Here at Springfield, we are able to offer our patients a more comfortable alternative to having Dental Impressions.
Scanning teeth is faster, less invasive, and eliminates the need for taking any impressions.
The 3shape trios scanner is designed to take 3D colour images of your teeth, taking thousands of pictures per second, with no harm and complete safety for the patient.
We are then able to send the scan immediately from a chairside computer device, straight to the dental laboratory. This faster more environmentally friendly approach is also more accurate than conventional impressions.
Overall, the use of this new and advanced technology allows:
- More comfortable treatment for patients, especially for those that suffer with their gag reflex, therefore making those longer appointments at the dentist more enjoyable and bearable.
- Quicker process of getting your work to the laboratory and not having to wait for collection the following day, putting back the treatment process further.
- Less chance of the impression being distorted during delivery to the laboratory, therefore avoiding wasting our patient’s time by needing new sets of impressions taken.
- Greener, more environmentally friendly and completely sustainable approach to dentistry.
