General Dentistry

What do I look for when doing a dental examination?

What are fillings?

What are root canal treatments?

What are crowns?

What are bridges?

Examples of my work in this area

Trauma to UR1 and UL1

This patient slipped off his bike pedal and hit the handlebars. It resulted in completely shattering the UR1 with a vertical root fracture and pulp exposure and an fracture of the UL1.

The UR1 needs extraction and is unrestorable but to alleviate the patient’s pain immediately and restore the appearance of the tooth a primary root canal treatment was carried out followed by a layered composite restoration. This tooth was extracted two weeks after this appointment and replaced with a dental implant and is currently in the healing phase. The UL1 had a layered composite placed for natural appearance.

Whitening and Composite Edge Fillings

Whitening followed by composite edges to restore worn central incisors – the patient liked the gap between his front teeth therefore this was not changed. .

Zirconia Crown on Root filled Molar (second from the back)

The lower left molar (second tooth from the back) had a root canal treatment (the root canal was needed because the tooth had very deep decay that extended into the nerve and caused the nerve to die). After the roots were cleaned out and the defect filled the tooth had an aesthetic metal free crown placed to protect the tooth from fracture and from bacteria leaking into the disinfected root canal system.

Microabrasion for Hypomineralized Enamel

Patient was very self conscious of the very white appearance of the hypomineralized UL1. The defect was deep and was removed using micro-abrasion (a technique where an abrasive paste is used to remove the outmost layer of enamel) – there was a slightly deficiency and the defect with filled with translucent enamel composite.
