Thorough Checkup

Thorough Examination

During your examination, we aim to find out all the details regarding your dental status. This includes a discussion about any current problems you may be experiencing and a subsequent thorough check of all the structures within and around the oral cavity. We use a variety of different investigative procedures including digital x-rays and special cameras during the examination process. This helps us to form accurate diagnoses and communicate any findings with you in a simple and informative manner.

Digital X-Ray

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays are as comfortable as conventional radiographs, but they are beneficial as you receive a significantly reduced dose of radiation. As well as this, enlarged images of these x-rays are available for viewing almost immediately after they have been taken.

Hygiene

Hygiene Treatment

This treatment involves using high-tech equipment to remove any staining and debris which may have built up on tooth surfaces which might affect your gum health. It can range from a sequence of appointments involving deep cleaning around each tooth to help treat gum disease, to a thorough clean and polish to make your teeth look and feel lovely.

Tooth Whitening Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening

We use the technique which has been shown by different bodies of evidence to be the most effective method of whitening teeth. It is a simple procedure which involves taking moulds of your top and bottom teeth from which customised made bleaching trays are made. When they are back from the laboratory, your dentist will demonstrate how to use them and how to maintain them. The bleaching trays and the bleaching gels will be given to you, and you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home giving you full control over the process. We will discuss the benefits of this procedure, and you can decide if this non-invasive but effective method of brightening your smile is of interest to you.

Amalgam Fillings Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam Fillings (silver)

Fillings are used to replace a portion of your tooth which has been lost either due to dental decay or damage. Amalgam is a metal alloy made up from various metals which when mixed can be placed into a tooth and which subsequently hardens restoring the tooth's original shape and function. The amalgam alloys which we use at Malden Dental Care are modern alloys which have extremely high strength and high corrosion resistance. They do play an important role in providing strong stable fillings in back teeth for those patients who wish to have them once all the options have been discussed.

Composite Fillings Composite Fillings

Composite White Fillings

Fillings are used to replace a portion of your tooth which has been lost either due to dental decay or damage. Composites are made from synthetic resins mixed with silica particles creating a tooth coloured filling material which can be placed into a tooth and hardened using a special light restoring the tooth's original colour, form and function. These composite fillings are very technique sensitive, and so at Malden Dental Care we ensure that we use high quality materials and the most meticulous placement methods to ensure long term success.

Root Canal Root Canal

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a procedure which involves the PAINLESS removal of an infected dental nerve, the cleaning, shaping and disinfection of the space that the nerve occupied at the centre of the tooth, and filling of this space. This procedure is usually carried out when a tooth has abscessed or when the nerve at the centre of the tooth has become infected due to decay or a fracture.

Metal Alloy Crowns

A crown is a type of dental restoration which covers the entire tooth. It is used to restore a tooth if it is badly broken down and to minimise the risk of further breakage. We do this by minimally trimming the supporting tooth in all dimensions, and encapsulating the trimmed tooth within the crown.

The metal alloy crowns appear either silver or gold in colour depending on the concentration of gold within them. The benefit of these crowns is that the supporting tooth requires minimal trimming, and therefore its integrity is maintained. There is good evidence to suggest that the higher purity gold crowns (70%) have a longer lifespan.

White Crowns

A crown is a type of dental restoration which covers the entire tooth. It is used to restore a tooth if it is badly broken down and to minimise the risk of further breakage. We do this by minimally trimming the supporting tooth in all dimensions, and encapsulating the trimmed tooth within the crown.

There are numerous types of white crowns available at Malden Dental Care.

  • Porcelain bonded to metal crowns are crowns where there is a metal substructure which fits over the tooth upon which the laboratory technician skilfully builds up porcelain to make the crown look like a natural tooth. These crowns are aesthetic, strong and resistant to wear.
  • Zirconia crowns are where the underlying substructure is made from white zirconia, which is very strong, upon which porcelain is placed. These crowns require very little tooth preparation and provide excellent aesthetics.
  • Dentine bonded crowns are crowns where there is a very thin shell of porcelain which is bonded to the underlying substructure. This is suitable whenever the underlying tooth has a good colour, providing excellent aesthetics and requiring minimal tooth preparation.

The dentist will discuss which the best option for you is, and you can choose what type of crown you could like.

Bridges

A bridge is a fixed appliance used to replace missing teeth.

There are two types of Bridges:

  • Conventional Bridge: This is where the teeth either side of the gap are trimmed down and these teeth are both crowned. These crowned teeth are both connected by tooth pontics which sit where the missing teeth used to sit, and thus 'bridge' the gap.
  • Adhesive Bridge: This is where the tooth, usually behind the gap, is minimally reduced, and a metal plate is bonded to the inside of the tooth to which is attached a replacement tooth which sits in the space.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin facing of porcelain which is bonded to the front facing surface of a tooth. The aim of a veneer is to improve the aesthetics by improving the colour and the shape of the teeth. This is a minimally invasive procedure which provides excellent smiles.

Invisible Braces Invisible Braces Invisible Braces

Invisible Braces

Braces are devices which aim to improve the alignment of the teeth by placing gentle pushing forces on the teeth which gently move them into a more aesthetic position. At Malden Dental Care, we use the most aesthetic form of braces which involve using a series of clear custom made positioners which sequentially move the teeth into alignment. The procedure involves taking clinical photographs, x-rays and simple moulds which are then sent to an extremely high-tech laboratory. The laboratory produces multiple precise fitting positioners which you wear for a specific time, which provide the desired tooth movement. During this time, there is very close support given by the dentist, and there are appointments given to ensure that the movement is progressing to your satisfaction.

There are instances where a tooth is in bad condition, and you may opt to have the tooth removed. At Malden Dental Care, our dentists are experienced in removing teeth painlessly and with minimal trauma. We ensure that you are comfortable, and as we do with all treatment we undertake, we will answer or return any calls from you should you have concerns or questions after treatment.

Acrylic Dentures Acrylic Dentures Acrylic Dentures

Acrylic Dentures

Acrylic dentures are made with pink (or pigmented) acrylic which fits around the existing teeth, and which holds the replacement teeth in position. The benefits of these dentures are that if there are any further losses of natural teeth in a patient's mouth, replacement teeth can be added to these dentures with relative ease. If there have been any changes to the supporting gums, the same denture can be 'relined' to improve the fit.

Chrome Dentures

Chrome Dentures

Chrome dentures are made from an intricate metal alloy framework which supports the pink and white acrylic used to replace the teeth and gums. The metal framework has the benefit of being light, small and having clips and supports which rest on existing teeth to provide additional stability. These dentures are extremely strong and durable.

Flexible Dentures

Flexible Dentures

Flexible dentures are made from a super-durable material which is virtually indestructible. The types of flexible dentures we provide are either Valplast or Deflex dentures, depending on the clinical scenario. Our dentists will explain which is the best option is for you, and you can decide on which type you would like. The benefit of these dentures is that they are small, very strong and resilient, provide excellent aesthetics and they have clasps which can hook onto tooth for stability.

Denture Repair Denture Repair

Denture Repair

We work very closely with our laboratories, and thankfully we have a great relationship with them. This means that we are able to help patients who may have broken their dentures by asking our laboratories to repair them within a very short period. This is an invaluable service which we are able to provide in conjunction with our skilled laboratory technicians.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring may be required when your gums are in a position which prevents the placement of a good quality restoration and therefore they need to be reshaped. It may also be required when the gums are in a position which is not aesthetically pleasing, and so they can be cleanly and quickly repositioned to make a significant aesthetic impact.
