At The Happy Tooth we are committed to promoting good dental health for adults and children. This way everyone has a better chance of a healthy smile for life.
A regular dental check up is far more cost effective than allowing a problem to develop which may need costly dental rectification work. We recommend dental check ups every six months.
Children’s teeth are extremely important to look after and protect for their general health and wellbeing. It is important to visit the Dentist from as young as two years of age to detect any problems.
We restore teeth with white fillings so that the filling looks natural when you laugh and smile. We believe white fillings work just as well as the old traditional amalgam but, it is important to look after the tooth.
Wisdom teeth often do not erupt (emerge from the bone and gum) properly as there is insufficient space in the jaw. In this situation the wisdom teeth push against the teeth already there.
Root canal therapy can save an infected tooth that previously you would have lost. Root canal therapy treats the tissue inside the tooth when it has died or become infected, otherwise tooth loss occurs.
After a dental extraction it is important to look after yourself to insure the area is able to heal properly and to reduce the risk of infection. After a dental extraction it generally takes six weeks to heal properly.
Dentures are removable sets of artificial teeth set into plastic or metal frameworks and rest directly on the gum.
It usually requires three to six visits to make a denture.
Regardless of age, all people who participate in any sport or activity where there is a risk of contact to the face, needs to wear a correctly fitted custom mouth-guard to prevent dental injury.
