Prevention is the key to good oral health and minimum interventions such as fillings.

That is why we strongly encourage regular examinations and hygienist visits to maintain healthy mouth.

Available treatments include:

  • Hygiene visits – including the Airflow technology!
  • Fillings – including tooth-coloured composite fillings
  • Crowns – Same-day crowns!
  • Bridges
  • Root canal treatment
  • Dentures including implant retained dentures

See below to find more detail of these specific treatments.

Rock House patients have access to five highly-trained and experienced hygienists who play a major role in delivering our commitment to preventative dental care.

Regular visits to our caring hygienists ensure healthy teeth and gums and a reduced need for dental treatment. That’s a fact!

Every member of the hygienist team is friendly, caring and will give you all the advice and support you need to maintain excellent oral hygiene.

Remember that oral hygiene and healthy teeth bring major benefits to your overall health. We have introduced the newest technology to our hygiene visits which is the Airflow treatment.

Living with tartar build-up in the mouth puts you at a greater risk of suffering from gum diseases – these gum diseases progress, leading to loose teeth and eventual tooth loss. The tartar also puts a dent in your overall well-being.  Over the years, the food and beverages we consume end up discolouring and staining our teeth. This is where AirFlow dental hygiene treatment comes to the rescue.

AirFlow stain removal treatment is one of the most advanced and comfortable dental hygiene procedures. It is a superior alternative to the traditional cleaning method of scaling.

What is AirFlow stain removal?

The state of the art technology of the AirFlow stain removal procedure uses compressed air, sodium bicarbonate or glycine powder, and a gentle pressurised jet stream of water, which effectively removes the stains and plaque from the surface of the teeth. AirFlow dental hygiene procedure successfully removes plaque and stains present above and below the gumline, offering complete prophylaxis. The AirFlow stain removal at our clinic effectively removes the stains from the teeth’s surface caused by tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, etc. This treatment reveals a brighter and fresh smile right after the procedure, and the difference can be seen immediately.

Airflow before and after

Airflow teeth cleaning is efficient in removing stains caused by coffee, tea, tobacco and alcohol in one sitting. Apart from this, it can also be used to remove staining caused by certain medications, as well as plaque and debris removal.

You will be able to appreciate a brighter, healthier, and sparkling smile after your first sitting with the AirFlow stain removal procedure. However, it is not a teeth whitening treatment and may not effectively remove stains caused by congenital dental issues and fluorosis. You can schedule an appointment with us now to know how AirFlow stain removal technology can help you to a brighter and healthy smile.

Perhaps the greatest advance in dentistry over the past 30 years has been the introduction of durable white fillings. These produce a great aesthetic result, and it will often be impossible to see that a tooth has a filling in it.

And best of all, from an ecology perspective, these fillings (unlike the old amalgam fillings) contain no mercury. So they not only look great, they’re also great for the planet.

CEREC same-day crowns are a type of dental restoration that can be completed in a single visit to the dentist.

This technology uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) to create a digital model of your tooth, which is then used to create a custom-fit crown matching the shape and size of your natural tooth.

Unlike traditional crowns that require multiple appointments, CEREC same-day crowns can be designed, milled, and placed in just one visit.

This technology has revolutionized dental restorations, offering patients a more convenient and efficient option.

What are the benefits of CEREC® Technology?

  • Only one appointment required
  • no need for messy putty impressions
  • no need for temporary crowns that keep coming off
  • highly accurate fitting crowns and inlays
  • perfect designs using CAD/CAM technology

What should I expect during a CEREC® restoration?

We examine your tooth and determine the appropriate treatment. Next, we administer an anaesthetic and prepare your tooth for restoration, removing decayed and weakened tooth tissue. Then we take a digital 3D scan of your teeth and gums. The CEREC computer will design the crown or inlay. We will than perfect the design before we transfer this information to the CEREC® milling machine, which will automatically manufacture your prosthesis to match your tooth-shade. We use high quality E.max and Empress porcelains by Ivoclar Vivadent.

Once it is ready, we position it, ensuring it fits correctly and you can bite down properly, before bonding it securely into place.

The lifespan of CEREC same-day crowns can vary depending on several factors, including the patient’s oral hygiene habits, the location of the crown in the mouth, and the material used to make the crown.

On average, CEREC same-day crowns can last 10-15 years but can last even longer with proper care and maintenance.

One significant factor that can affect the lifespan of CEREC same-day crowns is oral hygiene.

Just like natural teeth, crowns need regular brushing and flossing to prevent decay and bacteria buildup.

Neglecting to clean your teeth and gums properly can lead to gum disease, which can cause the crown to become loose and eventually fail.

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth – or several teeth – by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

A bridge can be made from a variety of materials but typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth.

Your Rock House dentist will be pleased to take the time to explain any aspect of any dental procedure with you at any time.

Root canal therapy, otherwise known as endodontics, can become necessary when the tooth nerve has been permanently damaged by decay, trauma, gum disease or, very occasionally, a crack in a tooth.

Damaged nerves can become infected and can cause a dental abscess.

During root canal therapy, the nerve or remnants of the nerve are painlessly removed, and a filling is placed in the nerve cavity to prevent reoccurrence of the abscess.

This treatment provides an effective alternative to extracting the tooth.

Dentures are prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They serve as a removable and cost-effective solution for individuals experiencing significant tooth loss. Dentures come in two main types: full and partial. Full dentures replace an entire set of upper or lower teeth, while partial dentures are utilized when some natural teeth remain.

Crafted from durable materials like acrylic and metal, dentures are customized to fit the unique contours of the patient’s mouth. The fabrication process involves precise measurements, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit.

Apart from restoring oral functionality by improving chewing and speech, dentures also contribute to facial aesthetics, supporting the lips and cheeks for a more natural appearance. While they require an adjustment period for wearers to adapt to their feel and function, dentures offer a practical and non-invasive solution for those seeking tooth replacement.

Regular maintenance, such as cleaning and periodic adjustments, is crucial to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of dentures. With advancements in dental technology, modern dentures provide a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing option, helping individuals regain confidence in their smile and overall oral well-being.

Do you suffer from regular headaches? One of the causes could be a problem with your bite and the way your jaw operates. It’s called Temperomandibular Dysfunction but put simply, it is a condition caused by having an uneven bite. It can cause headaches and even cracked teeth.

Dealing with this condition is one of the Rock House specialties. If you think you may be affected, talk to your dentist.
