Gum Disease 

Gum disease affects almost half of all adults and can lead to serious issues if not treated! Advanced gum disease, for instance, has been linked to diabetes, stroke and even heart conditions. That’s why it’s important to attend regular check-ups with your Sarum dentist. We will make sure to catch any signs of gum disease early on and make sure to maintain your dental hygiene before more complex and costly dental treatment is required to save your smile!

Tooth Decay 

Tooth decay is a common but easily preventable problem that can occur because of poor diet, lack of dental hygiene routine and a build-up of harmful bacteria. Unresolved tooth decay results in cavities that can start small and worsen over time, causing extreme sensitivity and pain if not treated. 

It’s important that your dentist detects tooth decay and damage early on so that it can be treated before more serious problems develop. Our goal is to preserve your smile for as long as possible so we will do everything we can to save your natural teeth from decay. Treatment may involve fillings or crowns depending on the severity of the decay.

White fillings 

If your Sarum dentist has recommended you have a filing due to cavities or tooth decay, we offer a tooth-coloured and durable alternative to traditional amalgam fillings that won’t ruin the natural aesthetics of your smile! With one pain-free and gently procedure, we can save damaged teeth and restore your oral health – enquire about white fillings today!
