Rose Garden Dental Practice has been successfully providing dental services for patients in Kingsbury, Edgware, Queensbury, Harrow, Wembley and all over North London for many years. We understand the importance of regular, high quality routine dental care.
Not only are routine check-ups essential for patients suffering from oral conditions, they also helps to protect those with healthy teeth and gums from having dental problems in the future as any problems are caught early. Research has shown that by not taking care of your oral health you can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, respiratory and cardiovascular disease.
We offer an extensive range of general dentistry services to meet the needs of every family member. Some of our general dental treatments are listed below.
Bridges are used to bridge between two teeth that have a gap left by a missing tooth. Dental bridges, like implants and partial dentures, are used to replace missing teeth. There are several types of fixed dental bridges (which cannot be removed), including conventional fixed, cantilever and resin-bonded.
Dental bridges are made of two crowns positioned on teeth either side of the gap. These teeth work as anchors and a false tooth or teeth is inserted in between. False teeth are usually created from porcelain and are designed to fit your mouth comfortably. These bridges can be attached to both natural teeth and dental implants.
What is the procedure for a dental bridge?
- During your first appointment, we examine the health of your gums and other teeth. If the support teeth are decayed or broken, your dentist may have to build them back up before they can be used to support a bridge.
- Next, your dentist takes an impression of the prepared teeth. Your bridge is then created by skilled lab technicians so it fits precisely. While your restoration is being made, your dentist fits you with a temporary.
- To complete the procedure, you return to the Rose Garden Dental Practice for a second appointment to have the bridge fitted.
Dental crowns preserve the functionality of damaged teeth. This common dental restoration may be used to protect a cracked tooth or restore functionality of a tooth with excessive decay. Our dental crowns will strengthen the tooth as well as provide it with a natural shape and colour, restoring your smile and chewing function.
The life of a crown depends on how much pressure is applied on the bite and how well it’s looked after. The crown cannot decay, but decay can start where the edge of the crown joins the tooth. It’s important to keep the gums and crown clean at all times.
A dental filling is a type of restorative dentistry treatment used to repair minimal tooth fractures, tooth decay or otherwise damaged surfaces of the teeth. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. The material for white fillings can vary, and are mainly made of glass particles, porcelain and a synthetic resin and a setting ingredient.
- Acid causes decay which results in the softening of your tooth’s enamel and dentine, this can then lead to a cavity.
- If the decay is not serious it can be simply removed by your North London dentist at Rose Garden Dental Practice and then restored with a white/ tooth-coloured filling that looks natural in your mouth.
- If you’re in need of a filling towards the front of your mouth we’d recommend a white or composite filling as this will not distract from your natural smile.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a means of saving a tooth that has been damaged by deep decay, breakage, or infection. It is used to remove diseased pulp tissue from the interior of a tooth.
Root canal therapy is often required to eliminate infection and prevent tooth loss. The tooth is treated by isolating it under a protective barrier (rubber dam) and enhanced optics and magnification are employed. The procedure normally takes 1-2 visits, though this can vary according to the complexity of the root canals. On some occasions it may be possible to complete treatment in one extended appointment.
A crown is usually fitted following root canal treatment. Using modern anaesthetic solutions, every possible step is taken to ensure you’re comfortable while the dental work is carried out.
