Specialist Care

At Core Dental we have a team of registered specialists across various faculties who work cohesively with our general dentists and hygienists.

Orthodontists

 

Orthodontists are dental specialists who focus on correcting the position of the teeth and improving bite, as well as improving the appearance of the jaw and face.

The various orthodontic treatments available include conventional braces, Invisalign and internal lingual braces. Every patient is different, so we recommend that you have a consultation with your orthodontist to discuss the most suitable treatment option for you.

Periodontists

Periodontists are specialists in the field of periodontics, which focuses on implant surgery, bone grafts, periodontal surgery, gum lifts, and the treatment of gingivitis and periodontal disease (gum disease).

Most patients’ periodontal needs can be managed by their dental hygienist and dentist. However, if signs of periodontal disease are found during a regular check-up, you might be referred to see a specialist periodontist.

Endodontists

Endodontics is a specialised field that focuses on the treatment of the tooth pulp (nerve) and the surrounding tissues of the root of a tooth. Endodontics includes a variety of procedures such as root canal therapy, endodontic treatment, treating cracked teeth and treating dental trauma.

Endodontic treatment is required to save a tooth when the tooth pulp has become diseased or damaged.

Prosthodontists

Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry focusing on the restoration of teeth that require crowns, veneers, bridges, implants, dentures or any combination of these. The term prosthodontics means, literally, “tooth replacement”.

Prosthodontists specialise in improving the functionality and aesthetics of teeth that are missing or damaged.

Paediatric Dentists

Paediatric dentists specialise in treating the dental needs of children. They focus on the growth, development and treatment of children’s teeth and jaws, as well as the prevention of dental decay.

It’s important to establish a good oral hygiene routine from a young age. That’s why we at Core Dental strive to make your child’s dental experience a positive one. Our paediatric dentist can look after any of your child’s complex dentistry needs, and is experienced in treating children with acquired and inherited learning difficulties.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Patients who require complex oral surgery will likely be referred to an oral & maxillofacial surgeon, who is trained as both a dentist and a surgeon.

Oral & maxillofacial surgeons have degrees in the dental, medical and surgical disciplines and are specifically trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of oral diseases, trauma and conditions – including wisdom teeth removal, dental implants and orthognathic (jaw) surgery.

Sleep Dentistry

Sleep dentistry, also referred to as “sedation dentistry”, is designed to help phobic dental patients feel more relaxed and at ease.

Sedation dentistry involves the administration of a sedative to put the patient into a state of deep relaxation (sedation) so that dental treatment can be performed without the patient feeling anxious or concerned during the procedure.

Intravenous sedation is a lighter level of anaesthesia than general anaesthesia – so, while patients will not be able to communicate during the procedure and are likely to have little memory of it, they will still have their natural reflexes such as coughing and gagging.
