    • Intraoral photograph
    • Bitewing radiograph
    • CBCT scan

  • White fillings

    White fillings seal the gaps in teeth caused by tooth decay and they help prevent more bacteria from getting in.

    White fillings are made using composite resin and are available in different shades so they can be matched to your natural tooth colour.

    Fillings are a minimally invasive dental treatment that can last between five to 15 years approximately.

  • Tooth Grinding & Bruxism

    Bruxism or teeth grinding and clenching can become a long-term problem if not treated early. Constant grinding and clenching which is commonly caused by stress, can wear down teeth and jaws leading to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain. 

    This can make simple actions like chewing, talking and yawning quite painful. TMJ disorder can go away on its own after curbing the grinding and clenching habit, but it can also persist long-term and require treatment in the form of a custom mouthguard.

    The most common sign of TMJ disorder is jaw pain, but it manifests in many other symptoms.

  • Root Canal Therapy

    Root canal therapy (endodontic treatment) is used to save a severely decayed or cracked tooth that has been affected by bacteria.

    When tooth decay extends into the tooth’s inner layer, the soft tissue or dental pulp gets infected and can cause significant pain. Root canal therapy involves deep cleaning and shaping of the tooth roots, filling it and then sealing it with a crown. Symptoms of an infection include:

    • Severe throbbing pain
    • Swollen gums
    • An abscess (pocket or space between teeth and gums)
    • A severely chipped or cracked tooth
    • High sensitivity to hot and/or cold drinks
    • A severely decayed tooth

  • Wisdom tooth removal and other extractions

    Wisdom teeth can be a problem is there is not enough room for them to grow in the mouth and they partially erupt or become impacted and cause pain. When a partially erupted wisdom tooth can’t be properly cleaned, decay can form around the gums and soft tissues surrounding the tooth and form an infection. Even if you don’t have pain, it’s worth getting wisdom teeth checked so the dentist can assess the direction they are growing. 

    EVP Dental also performs simple extractions under local anaesthetic and surgical extractions which can be performed using a range of sedation options. Reasons to have teeth removed include: 

    • Ongoing severe pain
    • Advanced tooth decay
    • Fractured or cracked tooth
    • An extraction to prepare for orthodontics
    • A root canal treated tooth that has become reinfected
