Even if you regularly brush and floss at home, you’re most likely missing a few bits of food/plaque here and there. Over time, the bits that are missed will become calcified and you will no longer be able to remove it on your own.
It is recommended that you visit Carin every six months to have this removed – it’s basically a “facial” for your teeth!
If a cavity has progressed too far, root canal therapy may be needed to remove the bacteria / necrotic tissue from the root system. Dr Brümmer works with magnification and uses the latest techniques and (Protaper) instrumentation to ensure the best possible outcome.
More complex cases may necessitate the use of a dental microscope and can be referred to endodontic specialist Dr Bennie Smit in Claremont.
There is a “middle ground” called conscious sedation. If you suffer from dental anxiety or if your child is too young to “sit in the chair”, this may be the solution.
Contact us to find out when the next sedation session will be taking place.
If you require an implant, a specialist will do an assessment and be in charge of surgical placement.
Once the implant has integrated into the jaw bone, Dr Brümmer will work in partnership with highly skilled dental technicians to manufacture and fit the prosthesis that goes on top.
Once you’ve done all the steps of the 3 Golden Rules and you’ve been given a clean bill of dental health, you may want that “cherry on top”.
For your convenience we stock a variety of home-care products.
