Do you have a relentless toothache that’s interrupting your day and your night? It may be due to irreversible inflammation of the tooth’s pulp tissue. This inflammation can develop from decay, leaky fillings, periodontal disease, or trauma. A root canal treatment or removal of the inflamed tissue and replacement with an inert filling material might be the solution for you.

A tooth can display a range of uncomfortable symptoms and still be reversibly inflamed. In these cases, less invasive treatment options can be used to reduce inflammation. Come in for an assessment so we can help determine the cause and the best course of treatment.


Gingivitis is the little brother of periodontal disease. Infection, or colonisation, of the tooth and root surfaces by pathological bacteria, can cause inflammation of the gums and the tooth’s supporting tissues. Over time this inflammation results in bone loss which reduces the tooth’s connection with the jaws.

This disease-causing colonisation can be caused by conventional infection or by opportunistic organisms in cases when the oral environment is out of balance. Poor oral hygiene and some medical conditions such as diabetes or smoking are contributing factors. The first steps in managing this disease state are education, debridement of the colonised plaque and improved oral hygiene. We are happy to help, and it’s never too late to start.

X-Ray Services

Dental X-rays are pictures of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues around them to help find problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures can show cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination.

It is important to get the full scope of information available when making a dental assessment, this is why we do x-rays.
