General Dentistry

At Churchill Dental, we want you to keep a healthy smile. Our general dentistry treatments listed below are designed to help you regain an optimal level of oral health, especially after incidences of gum disease or tooth decay.

Deep cleaning

This treatment is carried out by one of our dental hygienists who will ensure that harmful plaque and bacteria are eliminated, leaving your whole mouth and teeth spotless.

Fillings

Fillings are used when you experience tooth decay, which result in external damage of the enamel and dentin. Your dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill the area with white composite material, which blends in with your natural tooth colour.

Broken teeth treatment

If you have broken a tooth, there is a chance that it will need to be removed to avoid the spreading of infection. Depending on the severity of the damage, your dentist will recommend substituting the broken tooth with a lifelike prosthetic appliance so that no one will be able to tell.

Oral cancer screenings

The prevalence of oral cancer has gone up by 25% over the past decade with indulgence in tobacco and/or alcohol being the main causes. When detected early, this type of cancer is not life threatening as figures show that 90% of people who receive early treatment are cured, whereas a delay in treatment lowers the figure to 50%. It is therefore essential to alert us without delay if you notice any
