Implants can also be used to support ill-fitting dentures.

Sedation is a very specific technique that involves the introduction of sedative medicaments either orally (Diazapam) or intravenously (Midazolam). These medicaments will allow patients to enter a ‘dream-like’ state within a few minutes and help provide a calm and relaxing experience for patients in order to allow the dentist to perform any necessary dental treatment with comfort and ease.
Bridges are used to fill any small gaps that you may have in the mouth having had a tooth our from that area previously. A bridge can be a wise investment that can give many years of good service. As well as improving the general appearnace of your smile, it will also improve your overall bite.
Bridges are usually made of a precious or non-precious metal substructure onto which Porcelain is fused. At Tg's we also provide all-porcelain bridges which are often dearer but can produce exceptional results.
Root canal treatments (Endodontics) are relatively comfortable and often painless as the tooth is anaesthetised before treatment.
During a standard Root Canal Treatment, a tooth is gently opened up by the dentist and the inner soft tissues which contain nerve tissue and a blood supply (the pulp) are carefully removed. The dental pulp often extends from the crown to the tips of the root or roots. The pulp can be infected or inflamed due to either deep decay or an extensive restoration that involves the pulp. Signs of pulp damage may include pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, and tenderness of the overlying gums or a bad taste in the mouth. On occasion, there may be no symptoms at all. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can eventually cause pain, swelling and loss of the supporting bone.
