We make every effort to make your dental experience, one that exceeds your expectations.

Our general dental services include:

Dental Examination Our aim is to help you maintain a healthy mouth and therefore during your routine dental examination, we check your teeth, gums and soft tissue for early signs of any dental problems, such as decay or gum disease. Our soft tissue screening includes a visual check of your gums, inner cheeks and tongue which allows us to spot any infections, mouth conditions or even mouth cancer at the earliest stages. At this appointment we may take photographs of your teeth to understand your dental concerns. In addition, we may take x-rays which help with diagnosis and treatment planning or we may take impressions of your teeth (study model) so that we can see how your teeth bite together.

Emergency Treatment If you are in need of dental treatment in an emergency, then emergency appointments are available on the day. We also carry a range of antibiotics on site, can make referrals to appropriate specialists and can keep your dentist informed of any treatment you have had with us. Should your dental emergency occur whilst you are travelling abroad, we are always available to give advice over the telephone and e-mail any digital x-rays and records that may help you.

White fillings New technological advancements in dentistry enable white (composite or resin) or natural tooth coloured fillings to be used in restoring decayed and broken teeth. White fillings are very strong and long lasting. We also use white fillings to replace mercury (silver) fillings.

Inlays/Onlays Inlays and onlays are an alternative treatment option to fillings and are used to repair a damaged tooth. An inlay is small and within the biting surface of the tooth whereas an onlay will cover a larger area of the tooth. These restorations can be made from porcelain, gold or composite resin and are bonded to the damaged area of a tooth. Inlays and onlays are made in a laboratory and will require two visits to the practice. Most patients have a porcelain inlay or onlay as it hard wearing, long lasting and can also be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, to give you a perfectly beautiful smile with great dental health and function.

Extractions We routinely carry out the removal of problematic teeth. We may need to remove a tooth if decay has destroyed enough tooth structure that restoring the tooth is no longer possible. Teeth may also need to be removed for orthodontic (braces) treatment. In addition, with wisdom teeth, we may need to remove these teeth if

" they are not able to come through into the correct position "

" there is not enough room "

" they are causing some pain or discomfort "

" they have only partly come through and are decayed "

" they are painful "

Care for Dental Phobics For many patients, a visit to the dentist can create anxiety that is so severe that they will go for years without having a dental examination. Such patients often end up in extreme pain as they have not seen a dentist for many years and consequently may now need extensive dental treatment. Patients' anxiousness over treatment is an important factor that we carefully consider when you visit our practice. At Sparkle, we take time to identify patients' feelings and the source of their fear. What information is shared is taken seriously and handled with great care, understanding and empathy. We provide as much information about any dental treatment that you need and make appointments, in easy, comfortable visits. We are also using conscious sedation along with local anaesthesia rather than more extensive, drug-oriented methods, to help remove any anxiety and fear. Here at Solanki Dental Centre our main concern is your oral health and we encourage regular check-ups to maintain the good condition of your teeth. So if you need a check-up please book a consultation with one of our dental practitioners.

Root Canal Treatment When the nerve of the tooth becomes infected, then root canal treatment can save your tooth. You may notice that you have an infection, if you experience either

You may also be completely unaware that you have an infected tooth, as you may not be experiencing any symptoms. An x-ray will show any infection.

Prolonged dental sensitivity to hot or cold.

Tenderness when biting or eating or Facial or oral swelling.

Bad taste in your mouth A root canal is needed when the pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) becomes inflamed or infected as a result of trauma or injury to the tooth, deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a cracked or chipped tooth. This may lead to an abscess, where the symptoms can range from a dull ache to severe pain and tenderness when biting. If left untreated, the infection will spread resulting in the tooth having to be removed.

An infected tooth will not heal by itself and as it gets worse, it will continue to be a source of infection that brings down your immune system.

Root canal treatment normally takes 2 visits to complete. At the first appointment, we normally remove any infection from the tooth, any abscesses are drained and the root canal is cleaned and shaped ready to place the filling. A temporary filling is placed on the tooth. At the second visit, the temporary filling is removed and we check that the infection has cleared before filling the tooth permanently.

One of the most common surgeries is the impacted wisdom tooth. More often wisdom teeth have no place one the arch which means misplacement problems in addition to inflammation and infections. Some of the cases include dental nerve proximity, cysts, deep positions and more, because of all the risks available only a surgeon is qualified to do such surgeries.

Single Implants Among young adults, an implant is often used to replace a single tooth lost to a sporting or other accident, or to provide artificial teeth where natural teeth never developed or have been lost. Dental implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. Made from titanium, implants replace your tooth roots and integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. The implant provides a solid base for the crown to be attached to and looks and functions like your natural teeth. In certain situations, an implant can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction. Grinding your teeth, an improper bite, the aging process, fillings and tooth decay can all be contributing factors in the wearing down, cracking or breakage of your teeth. A crown is made to look as real as your own natural tooth and covers the entire visible surface of your tooth. Crowns are attached permanently to the tooth to enhance aesthetics, add strength, durability and tooth stability. The procedure takes two appointments. At the first appointment, we minimally shape the tooth and place a temporary crown. About 7 days later at your second appointment, we remove the temporary crown. We place your new crown and check the fit and your bite. With proper oral hygiene, your crown can last up to ten years. However, improper or infrequent brushing and flossing, irregular dental visits can all affect the longevity of your crown. A crown may the very last step in the procedure, which will give this tooth added strength and protection.

Fixed and Removable Retainers Once your braces have been removed, the best way to keep your healthy, new beautiful smile is by wearing a retainer. A retainer is an orthodontic appliance which has been designed to keep your teeth where your braces have moved them to. When braces are removed, the teeth have a tendency to want to return back to their original positions. Retainers prevent this from happening and are keys to maintaining the success of your orthodontic treatment. With recent developments in materials, there are a variety of retainers. Some are removable and some are fixed and can be used for both your upper and lower teeth. Removable retainers can be made of wire and hard plastic (Hawley retainer) or entirely made from hard plastic (Essix retainer) and are made for the upper teeth and your lower teeth. The video to the top left, demonstrates the placement of an Essix removable retainer. Fixed retainers are made from a wire, which is permanently cemented to the back of either your upper or lower teeth, as shown in the video to the top right. With recent developments in materials, there are a variety of retainers. Some are removable and some are fixed. Most retainers for your upper teeth are made of wire and hard plastic and fit in the roof of your mouth. A retainer for your lower teeth can be removable or permanently cemented to the lower teeth. Our specialist will provide you with the kind of retainer that best suits your lifestyle whilst maintaining the new position of your teeth. Your reward will be a lifetime of a healthy, beautiful smile. Solanki Dental Centre provides orthodontic treatment such as fixed and removable retainers to many, many clients.

How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work ?

Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective.

Fixed appliances include:

Braces : the most common fixed appliances, braces consist of bands, wires and/or brackets. Bands are fixed around the teeth or tooth and used as anchors for the appliance, while brackets are most often bonded to the front of the tooth. Arch wires are passed through the brackets and attached to the bands. Tightening the arch wire puts tension on the teeth, gradually moving them to their proper position. Braces are usually adjusted monthly to bring about the desired results, which may be achieved within a few months to a few years. Today's braces are smaller, lighter and show far less metal than in the past. They come in bright colors for kids as well as clear styles preferred by many adults. Special fixed appliances used to control thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, these appliances are attached to the teeth by bands. Because they are very uncomfortable during meals, they should be used only as a last resort.

Removable appliances include:

Aligners : an alternative to traditional braces for adults, serial aligners are being used by an increasing number of orthodontists to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires and brackets. Aligners are virtually invisible and are removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Removable space maintainers : these devices serve the same function as fixed space maintainers. They're made with an acrylic base that fits over the jaw, and have plastic or wire branches between specific teeth to keep the space between them open.
