Johannesburg East Dentists
Living in Johannesburg we are somewhat spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing a dental practitioner because it is the business hub of the nation.
Add to this the many “directories” on the Internet that have gathered dentists and doctors on their pages and it becomes more of a quest than a search because these directories are very confusing.
This is why this site was born: to cut through all the frustration and allow you to get to the best dentist in your area with only a few clicks.
Recuperative Processes – General Dentistry
Throughout an oral assessment your dental practitioner may utilise various instruments, an array of tests, x-rays and medical expertise to establish latent or existing infection status and pathologies. Where cosmetic dentistry is to be applied, the dentist will work to identify your esthetic goals with you.
- Dental Fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth
- Bonding: Bonding is the term used to describe the process of using composite resins to "glue" materials to the surface of a tooth for restorative purposes
- Orthodontics: Misaligned teeth and malocclusions can be straightened and corrected with dental braces and retainers. Orthodontics is both a functional and cosmetic treatment, and has become an increasingly popular field of dentistry.
- Root Canals: Root canal therapy removes infected pulp tissue within the root chamber of the tooth
- Dental Crowns: Dental crowns can repair extensively decayed or damaged teeth
- Dental Bridges: Dental bridges replace missing teeth with artificial replacements
- Dentures: Dentures are used to replace missing teeth or damaged teeth that cannot be otherwise repaired
- Periodontal Treatment: Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling and cleaning at three-month intervals along with use of medicated mouthwash and proper flossing
- Laser Procedures: In some cases, laser dentistry can replace the need to drill teeth or to use other, more invasive dental equipment
