general-dentistry-in-rothwellWhat’s on offer?

Treatments that come under general dentistry in Rothwell at our surgery are:

  • Sedation
  • Restorations including: fillings, bridges, onlays, inlays, dentures, crowns and veneers
  • CEREC one visit dentistry
  • Teeth whitening
  • Root canal therapy.

Sedation

We know that many patients, both adults and children, feel anxious about coming to the dentist. We don’t want anyone to neglect their teeth out of fear. One way to address this is with conscious sedation.

We offer a mild sedative called Midazolam to induce a state of calm and relaxation. It is very mild and the only after-effect is sleepiness – so it is worth enlisting someone to take you home after your treatment. It’s helpful for anyone undergoing a lengthy course of treatment or those who feel extremely anxious at the dentist.

Restorations

There are many options to repair and restore missing, chipped, cracked, decayed or loose teeth. After consultation, our dentist will be able to advise you on which method is the best for you. All our restorations are available in tooth-coloured materials, so they blend seamlessly in with your other teeth.

CEREC one visit dentistry

One advance in restorations is our CEREC in-house studio. Using 3D technology, we can now create permanent, natural-coloured replacement teeth within an hour, rather than the two weeks it traditionally takes.

Teeth whitening

Get brighter, whiter teeth with a same-day treatment at the surgery, or with a gentler method at home over two weeks.

Root canal therapy

If the pulp inside your tooth has become infected, root canal therapy can help to clear the infection, heading off more painful conditions further down the line. Our dentists use the latest technology to make sure this complex procedure is as painless as possible.

There are many reasons why general dentistry in Rothwell is worth considering. If you are not 100% happy with your teeth then Trinity Dental can offer you a solution. With dentistry always advancing, it can be hard to keep up with the latest treatments. Our dentists are always happy to see you for a consultation if you are not sure which treatment will suit you.

teeth-whitening-in-rothwellI am interested in teeth whitening, can you tell me more?

Yes! Teeth whitening is a popular choice of general dentistry in Rothwell. If you want your teeth to be whiter to dazzle your colleagues and friends then this is a perfect option. As you get older, it is common that your teeth become more yellow in colour. This can be due to the foods and drinks that deposit molecules on the enamel. Over time, this leads to the enamel becoming stained.

If you are interested in having your treatment in-house then we use a treatment called Zoom. This is perfect if you have an event or function that you need to look your best for! If you have more time on your hands why not consider the take-home whitening kit? Our dentist will make you a custom-made tray that fits neatly on your teeth as part of your do-it-yourself kit. You will be provided with instructions on how to apply the hydrogen peroxide to the tray, as well as the length of time to keep the tray in your mouth each day. You will see the desired results in 10-14 days.

I need root canal therapy

In Rothwell, general dentistry is on the increase with more people requiring good quality dental work. Root canal therapy is needed when an infection occurs in the centre of the teeth. The infection is likely to spread and be painful. If this is the case for you it is essential to get a root canal treatment done, as without it could lead to further health risks such as an abscess. Root canal therapy involves cleaning the inner tooth and root system in order to prevent further infection. The work requires two or more visits to the dentist.

Black Triangles – Be gone!

 

Smile with Black Triangles

Black triangles between our teeth are very common due to the advanced treatments we can now undertake and fortunately they are easily rectified.

Black triangles are a result from either previous gum disease and loss of the papilla (the gum in between), poorly fitting dental work, trauma to the gum or our anatomy and the position of our teeth. Black triangles can also appear following orthodontic work where the teeth align into a straight position.

Although they may cause concern cosmetically they can also affect our oral health. Creating a gap allows for food and debris to gather and as much as we dread getting herbs or food stuck in our teeth on a first date or during a work lunch it can also lead to gum inflammation which can ultimately follow on to produce bone loss.

At Trinity Dental we offer composite bonding treatment which can help to eliminate these black triangles and create a smile that you are proud of.

During this procedure a clear matrix is placed around the tooth and then your clinician will apply a specially made composite to build the tooth and create the desired shape.

Isn’t it amazing what can be achieved! Contact us for further information or to book in today.

Dental Anxiety – The Reality

Fear: noun: an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm
At Trinity Dental we understand that many patients are nervous about visiting the dentist. This does not have to be case. As a clinic our aim is to make sure every patient has the best experience and feels comfortable from the moment they enter the clinic to time they leave. Our dedicated team offer the best support and welcome everyone with a warm smile.

Horror stories and old wives tales are a thing of the past with all the latest technology and techniques there is no string tying to extract teeth or a shot of whiskey for the anaesthetic we make sure all procedures and discussed and are carried out thoroughly talking you through every stage.

We ensure a pain and stress free environment in the surgery, with our sonos system we can even play your favourite Justin Bieber or AC/DC track to ease any nerves.

A phobia of needles??

We offer an alternative called INJEX- the soft shot! This is a soft shot of anaesthesia on to the tissue. This completely avoids the needle and has the bonus of wearing off quicker after the treatment.

Still unsure?

We also offer IV sedation at the clinic, this is a small sedative administered into the back of hand or arm and will induce you into a state of deep relaxation.

Here are some statistics….

  • One in 7 adults who have ever been to the dentist suffer with dental anxiety.
  • Women are more likely to suffer from extreme dental anxiety than men.
  • The common fears for visiting the dentist are having a tooth drilled (30%) and having a local anaesthetic injection (28%)
  • Visiting the dentist is ranked number one for making people nervous (22%) followed by fear of heights.
  • Nearly 10 times as many people are nervous of visiting their dentists compared to their doctor.

General dentistry: ways to restore or replace teeth

Regular appointments for general dentistry help to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top condition. However, at Trinity Dental in Rothwell we understand that teeth can be damaged or lost for a wide variety of reasons, from sporting accidents to injury, tooth decay or gum disease.

replace-teethFortunately, general dentistry also offers a wide selection of ways to restore and/or replace your tooth or teeth if they are broken, chipped, otherwise damaged, or even lost.

Ask any dentist and they will tell you that anyone with damaged teeth should visit a dentist as soon as possible, and that lost teeth ought always to be replaced. This is because even a tiny chip or crack can be enough to allow bacteria to enter the pulp of your tooth, which can potentially lead to infection, pain, and the need for root canal treatment. Ultimately, if left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss.

Missing teeth should always be replaced for several reasons. First and foremost, having a gap-toothed smile can be a cause of social embarrassment and can have a serious negative impact on your self-esteem. Any remaining teeth can become twisted, crooked, and difficult to keep clean as they move into gaps, which can lead to a slew of dental and general health problems, and depending on how many teeth are missing your ability to speak, to eat a healthy diet, and to enjoy an active social life.

What your dentist can do

For missing teeth, your dentist may use dentures or a bridge, depending on how many teeth are missing and what your treatment preferences are. Both of these options can also be supported by dental implants, which means they stay firmly in place and no work is needed on surrounding teeth.

For broken teeth, there are a number of options available. Sometimes, a small chip or crack can be repaired with composite white filling material. This is both fast and effective. In cases where additional strength is required, your dentist may use a crown or porcelain inlays/onlays.
