Preventive Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry

At Heasley Dental we encourage preventive techniques - helping you to understand how to maintain good oral hygiene therefore preventing tooth decay and gum disease.

We highly recommend brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily and having an annual dental exam and clean. X-Rays are generally recommended every two-three years.

Aesthetic Dentistry

Aesthetic Dentistry

Aesthetic dentistry includes teeth whitening, composite and porcelain veneers and crowns.

At Heasley Dental we offer many different options to improve the appearance of your smile. Speak to your dentist about which options would be best suited for you.



Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Dentistry

When a tooth breaks or has a cavity it will require restoration. Restorative options include fillings (amalgam or composite), veneers and crowns.

Your dentist will assess the tooth and discuss which options are appropriate for your individual case.

 

Children Dentistry

Children Dentistry

Oral hygiene is important in early years, to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Regular Dental check-ups help your dentist to help you prevent and treat decay before it causes cavities and toothache.





Root Canal (Endodontics)

Root Canal (Endodontics)

On your initial appointment the dentist will locate the offending tooth and take an x-ray in order to show the roots of the tooth, to see how far the decay has travelled and if there is an abscess present. A course of antibiotics may be given to clear the abscess before the treatment is started as the abscess will reoccur if the treatment is NOT carried out.’

 

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

If there is enough room in the mouth the wisdom teeth will come through (erupt) in a useful position and there will only be minor discomfort as they erupt. However, wisdom teeth can cause problems if there is not enough room in the mouth, as the wisdom tooth erupts at an angle and gets stuck against the tooth in front; the dentist will describe this as 'Impacted'.

 


Dentures

Dentures

Dentures are kept in place by either using clasps which anchor around neighbouring teeth or by the dentures’ natural suction. On occasions a denture fixative or glue is recommended to aid in keeping the denture in place.

 

Dental Extractions

Dental Extractions

Your dentist will examine your tooth and explain the reasons why your tooth needs to be extracted, an x-ray will be taken to help plan the best way to remove the tooth and to see if an abscess is present.

 



Post Operative Instructions

Post Operative Instructions

If the socket does start to bleed after you have left the dental practice, place a clean tissue or handkerchief over the extraction site and apply pressure by biting down, the bleeding will normally stop within a few minutes. Again do NOT disturb the blood clot.



Sedation / General Anaesthetic

Sedation / General Anaesthetic

The underlying issue is that whatever phobia patients may have, they will often choose to neglect dental treatment because of this phobia and thus create more damage to the teeth.  Sedation not only helps the patient but also greatly assists the dentists as they are able to carry out the procedure with greater cooperation from a relaxed patient.



Orthodontics

ClearCorrect clear aligners straighten teeth invisibly, without metal braces. Dr Heasley is offering this service.

Dr. Richter is currently furthering his studies to provide traditional orthodontics and clear retainers.
