Case Study - White Fillings
- Clinical Example -
For any elderly aged patient, a traumatic fall can have serious consequences. Luckily for this patient it was nothing that could not be fixed. At PDC we aim to please, simple composite fillings can make teeth look as good as new!!
Case Study - 'AIRFLOW'
- Clinical Example -
AIRFLOW - A scale and polish at the dentist is a routine way of removing calculus and minor staining. ‘Airflow’ is a modern and far more effective stain removal treatment offered at PDC. The airflow involves a mild sandblasting technique and produces instant results.
It is a good starting point for patients considering tooth whitening.
Case Study - Root Canal Treatments
- Clinical examples/ Radiographs -
Root canal treatment can often be challenging for many dentists. Patients are often put off by either the thought of having this treatment or that it may not work. John has spent the last 4 years completing his Endodontic Masters and specialises in this treatment.
He takes pride in making patients feel at ease during the procedure and more importantly making sure the treatment is completely pain free.
Treatment is carried out in the practice using a microscope and ultrasonics. These instruments can allow John to find extra root canals in teeth which may be difficult to locate in general practice and help him produce very high success rates for patients.
John also takes patient referrals from other dentists for more complicated root canal cases.
