Preventing dental accidents

Sports injuries

Unfortunatelyaccidents can damage teeth, often beyond repair. We cannot prevent all dental accidents, but we can predict when they are more likely to occur, such as when we participate in certain sports. In these instances, teeth can be protected to reduce the chance of injury by using Gum Shields.

The best protection is from custom made Gum Shields that fit your mouth accurately.
We are able to make custom made gum shields with a variety of designs and colours to suit you. We can also make them of a variety of thicknesses and strength to suit the sportsyou participate in.

Teeth Straightening

We can nowalign adult front teeth more quickly than with traditional braces using one of two techniques:

Cfast and Invisalign. Both techniques are fast and discreet.


Uses almost invisible wires and brackets that are attached to the front of the teeth to align them. You will need to return to your dentist every month to have small adjustments made.

Treatment usually takes 6-9 months.

Uses clear discreet aligning trays that are worn for at least 22 hours a day. You wear a succession of trays over the course of treatment which would guide your teeth to the desired position. You would need to see your dentist every two weeks to have your progress checked and have a new aligner tray fitted.
