Meet our team of experts who attend to your dental needs.
The basis of all dental treatment starts with an accurate diagnosis. In order to gather all the relevant information, our dentists will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth, teeth, gums and jaw joints using:
- Intra-Oral and Extra-Oral Photos
- Digital X-Rays
- Making Moulds of Your Teeth
- Periodontal Screening for Gum Disease, Bone Loss and Bad Breath
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Evaluation of Your Jaw Joint Function
This information will then be used to formulate a customized treatment plan for each individual.
The adage “Prevention is better than cure” also holds true for your oral health. Our team of dentists and hygienists will teach you how to prevent the most common dental problems. This is achieved by:
- Oral hygiene education and instructions
- Fissure sealants on cavity-free 6-year and 12-year molars
- Early detection of cavities and regular x-rays
- Screening for gum disease (Gingivitis), bone loss (Periodontitis) and bad breath (Halitosis)
- Oral cancer screening
Should any early signs of developing problems be noticed, minimally invasive interceptive therapy can be initiated to halt progression of the problem.
At Dentists@Health Graaff Reinet, we offer a comprehensive range of basic dental services, including check-ups, dental hygiene, digital x-rays, fillings, root canal treatments, crowns, bridges, dentures, paediatric- and sedation dentistry.
Our children are the future and their oral, dental and general health matters! We encourage you to bring your little one annually from as early as 2-3 years old. This will ensure a positive experience in the dental office and help develop a good relationship with your dentist. We also offer Conscious Sedation for small and anxious children.
Many people achieve a white, brighter smile with one of our simple non-invasive whitening procedures. Tooth whitening can boost your self-confidence and improve the overall look of your smile. Dull, stained, or discoloured teeth can exaggerate the appearance of any imperfections.
Your bleaching package will be tailor-made to suit your requirements and budget and may consist of pre-bleaching, an in-office bleach, a home bleaching kit with custom fitted trays or a combination of the above. The bleaching material we use is safe, well-researched and contains fluoride to limit sensitivity.
Sedation for Nervous Clients and Small Children
We understand that some patients are still very nervous about dentistry. To help manage dental phobias and anxiety, we offer oral sedation using Dormicum and conscious intravenous sedation to ensure that the treatment is both painless and comfortable.
Implants and Rehabilitative Dentistry
From replacing single missing teeth to providing support for full arch prosthetics, dental implants provide the optimum solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. To keep our team at the cutting edge, we continuously update our knowledge and skills through advanced training.
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health. Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, chew more efficiently, create a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue and TM Joints.
Removable orthodontics focuses on the development of the upper and lower jaws, the face and the airway by manipulation of the growth patterns. It also looks at habits, swallowing patterns and breathing for proper development of jaws which leads to a well-balanced face and healthy airway.
Fixed orthodontics or Braces are considered to align and straighten teeth, in adults or once the patient has stopped growing to ensure functional occlusion and a great smile.
