Rhodes Waterside Dental was founded in 2005 with view to creating a friendly close knit family of staff and patients; more than a decade on we are still going strong!
We recognise each person is an individual with different dental needs. Through our caring, professional advice and our diverse range of services, we are dedicated and committed to ensuring your specific needs are met.
Through better oral health, we can start the journey to improving your general well-being.
For a broken tooth, the best thing to do is to store the fragment in milk and seek a dentist as soon as possible. Irrespective of size, a broken fragment can often be rebonded to the remaining tooth, which will achieve the best colour and shape match.
If a tooth is knocked out, remain calm and locate the lost tooth. Avoid overhandling and only handle by the crown (not the roots). If the root is dirty, gently suck the tooth or rinse in milk before replanting it in the mouth immediately (a delay of more than 30mins could greatly jeopardize the prognosis of the tooth). Hold the tooth in place and seek a dentist immediately.
If you are unable to replant the tooth, keep it moist by putting the tooth in milk or place it in the mouth next to the cheek and seek dental treatment.
This depends on the severity of your symptoms, frequency of pain episodes, effects on neighbouring teeth and your overall dental health.
A clinical assessment by a dentist will determine whether there is a need for removal.
At Rhodes Waterside Dental, we will discuss the urgency of removal and which setting best suits your case.
Yes, if done professionally.
At Rhodes Waterside Dental, we use the 10% Opalescence professional tooth whitening system that has been approved as safe and effective by the American Dental Association and the US Food and Drug Association.
This system produces effective and sustainable results. Patients may experience some degree of sensitivity during the process but this is a negligible side effect and is totally reversible.
