GENERAL DENTISTRY

The importance of a regular dental check-up cannot be overstated at The Croft Dental & Implant Practice. Your dentist will advise you on how often you should have a routine check-up, which is normally once or twice a year depending on your specific circumstances.

During the examination, we will check your teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other health issues, as well as propose any necessary treatment, such as fillings, root canals, dental extractions, and dentures.

Root Canal Treatments

Also known as Endodontic Treatment, Root Canal Treatment is the process of removing infected, wounded, or dead pulp from your tooth. The root canal system is the space between the hard layers of each tooth. This is made up of soft dental pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels that aid in the growth and development of your tooth.

The following are some of the most common signs of a root canal infection:

  • Sharp, severe, and excruciating pain
  • When biting, there is a sharp ache
  • Persistent pain after eating hot or cold food
  • Pressure and a dull ache
  • Tenderness and swelling of the gums in the area


In the last few years, there have been significant advancements in root canal treatment comfort, speed, and efficiency. Our dentists are knowledgeable, skilled, and up-to-date in root canal therapy, ensuring that all of our patients receive the finest possible care.

Dental Extractions

Sometimes, it is necessary to remove a tooth due to disease, damage from trauma, or unavoidable crowding.

At The Croft Dental and Implant Practice, it is our goal to make you feel safe and comfortable during the procedure.

Our dentists will advise you post-treatment on how to ensure that the affected area heals as fast as possible.

Dentures

A denture is one option if you are missing a few or all of your teeth. It is built of strong and long-lasting materials that closely resemble the appearance of your teeth and gums, giving you a natural smile.

You lose the capacity to chew properly when you lose teeth. Because the tooth has been replaced, you are no longer restricted to eating soft food. Dentures may also help you to speak more clearly.

If you prefer a more fixed solution to a removable denture, a dental implant may be the best option for you.
