The team at Westpoint Dental Clinic work closely with patients in order to provide a variety of treatments. From general dentistry, through to root canal therapy and orthodontics, our team will work with you to help you receive the treatment you need. Every patient’s oral health needs are different—some patients may only require a general check-up, clean and scale every so often while other patients should come in every 6 months to ensure their optimal oral health. Dr Frank, Dr Nazilla and the team at Westpoint Dental Clinic look forward to helping you receive the treatment you need to maintain a healthy smile.
At Westpoint Dental Clinic we use microscopes to provide patients with precision dental treatments. The advantage to our patients of using microscopes is that it helps to avoid possible treatment complications. We use this technology for treatments as simple as check-up and clean through to dental implants and dentures.
When it comes to straightening teeth, traditional metal braces are the tried and true method. Metal brackets are bonded to your teeth and over time (usually 12-24 months) are tightened to straighten your teeth. Straight teeth are healthier for you because they are easier to clean, and better for your jaws and gums. After you've had orthodontics you'll wear a retainer to maintain straight teeth.
Prosthodontics is the area of dentistry which focuses on dental prosthetics; for example dental crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants and dental veneers. So if you were to have root canal therapy and need to strengthen the treated tooth, a dental crown would be an ideal option. A dental crown not only strengthens and protects a tooth it also looks and feels like a natural tooth.
Restorative dentistry is any form of dentistry which is designed to restore your oral health. So, if you have a chipped or cracked tooth, a dental veneer or dental crown (depending on the severity of the damage) will restore the tooth. Typically speaking, restorative dentistry is more about the health of your teeth rather than the aesthetics.
