Services

At Nottingham Dental, we provide a wide range of services across every field of dentistry including general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, restorative dentistry, oral appliances, and orthodontics. Please continue reading for a brief discussion of all the services available at Nottingham Dental.

General Dentistry

General dentistry refers to services that everyone should go for regularly. These treatments are often diagnostic and preventative, which means they treat dental issues at the earliest stage possible or help you avoid them altogether.

There are 30,000 cases of oral cancer reported annually. With oral cancer screening, the dentist can identify signs of oral cancer or precancerous conditions at an early stage so they can be treated when they’re still manageable.

Teeth cleaning is a procedure in which the dental hygienist removes all of the accumulated plaque and tartar from your teeth so you can avoid cavities, dental decay, and bacterial infections. You should go for teeth cleaning once every six months.

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a condition in which you subconsciously keep grinding or clenching your teeth, either during the day or night or both. We treat teeth grinding by diagnosing the root cause of bruxism — whether it’s psychological or physiological. We also provide oral appliances and mouth guards that can protect your teeth from the damage caused by excessive grinding. We also provide oral appliances and mouth guards to protect you from impact during sports.

Periodontal therapy is a procedure in which the dentist disinfects your teeth, smoothens your tooth’s root surface, and reattaches it to the receding gums. This is the ideal treatment for periodontitis, which is an advanced form of gum disease.

Family dentistry refers to the fact that our dentists are trained to deal with children as well, we offer family discounts on our dental program, and our clinic is designed in a family-friendly style with entertainment facilities.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry refers to services that enhance the cosmetic or aesthetic appearance of your teeth even if they aren’t medically necessary. While these procedures aren’t medically necessary, they make you feel better and boost your self-confidence.

These are tooth-colored wafer-thin porcelain materials that are attached to the surface of your teeth. They completely transform the external appearance of your teeth and give you the perfect smile — which is why they’re also known as instant orthodontics.

As the name suggests, this refers to procedures with which you can whiten or brighten your teeth. During this procedure, the dentist removes years of accumulated stains and brightens your enamel.

Some people have excessive gum tissues in their mouth which makes their smile look uneven or too “gummy”. This is a procedure in which the dentist uses soft tissue lasers to contour the gums and remove excess gum tissues to improve your smile.

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry refers to procedures that help restore the ordinary or proper functioning of your teeth. These procedures are usually done when your teeth are damaged and there’s a possibility of the damage getting worse with time.

Most people get cavities at some point in their lives. Composite fillings is a procedure in which the dentist fills up the cavities with a composite resin material so it looks just like a part of your actual teeth.

If you have a cavity or fracture that’s very large or extends to the cusps of your teeth, you can’t get dental fillings. In that case, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth and creates a set of onlays to seal the crack or cavity.

If you have various major deformities on your teeth — cracks, fractures, intrinsic stains, etc — then porcelain crowns may be the best replacement for them. These are tooth-colored and tooth-textured caps attached over your existing teeth after filing them down to a small stub. This is also used to protect a weakened tooth after root canals.

This is a procedure in which the dentist drills into your affected or infected tooth to remove all of the pulp, blood vessels, and dead nerves. This is done to prevent the infection from spreading and protect your teeth. The dentist may even have to attach dental crowns to protect the weakened tooth.

You can only get dental implants if you have enough bone structure in your alveolar ridge. However, if you’ve suffered tooth loss, you may have also suffered bone loss. In that case, the dentist uses bone grafting material from other sources and plants it in the affected region to facilitate bone regeneration so you can get dental implants.

Grooves and ridges run down your molars that often become a bedrock of bacterial infestation. As such, these regions are prone to cavities and dental decay. With sealants, the dentist paints over these grooves to seal them and minimize the risk of bacterial infection.

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery refers to procedures that have to be surgically handled and they’re more invasive than most normal dental procedures.

There are several different ways in which dentists can remove either damaged or missing teeth. Discuss your options with the dentist.

Dental implants are the best way to replace a missing tooth and its root. The dentist screws a metallic post or framework into the jawbone of a missing tooth so it becomes a part of your body and can support crowns, bridges, or dentures.

If you’re missing two or more teeth in a single row, then porcelain bridges are the best replacement option for you. They are a series of fake porcelain teeth supported by dental crowns or dental implants (abutments) on both sides.

Dentures are removable appliances you wear in your mouth to replace missing teeth. Full dentures have a complete arch and are used if you’re missing all your teeth. Partial dentures are used to replace teeth that are missing intermittently.

You may have to get your teeth removed for several reasons — for orthodontic procedures, impacted wisdom teeth, dental disease, etc. Tooth extraction is a procedure in which the dentist surgically removes the affected tooth.

Dentures are usually removable and they keep coming off when you don’t want them to. All-on-4 implants is a method in which the dentures are attached to four implants strategically lodged across your upper and lower arch. This supports your dentures so they don’t come off while speaking or eating.

Orthodontics

Orthodontic procedures are necessary to straighten your teeth and prevent malocclusion, TMD, bruxism, and various other issues. We provide some of the most effective orthodontic treatments available.

These are some of the best invisible braces in the world. You have to simply pop them in and they gradually move your teeth in the correct direction. They’re completely invisible and they’re removable so you can take them off while eating.

These are a more affordable form of clear braces. They gradually move your teeth in the desired direction so you don’t suffer from malocclusion or other such issues related to misalignment.

Traditional or metal braces are metallic brackets attached over your teeth and connected to archwire. Over the course of a few years, the dentist gradually tightens them to add pressure to your teeth and move them in the correct direction.

We even provide thorough examinations for your teeth, bite, and alignment to determine if you need orthodontic procedures. If so, we also create a complete roadmap for your orthodontic procedure so you get a visual representation of every step of the orthodontic journey.
