General Dentistry

General dentistry covers regular check-ups, consultations and treatments that are necessary for healthy teeth and gums. It also covers more advanced treatments such as root canals and rectifying and treating gum disease.

To ensure you're fully informed about your treatment we'll provide itemised treatment plans and fee estimates prior to the commencement of any course of treatment. If you'd like to make an enquiry about pricing, please feel free to send us a message using the contact form at the end of this page.

Exam, Clean & Polish

Our recommended regular checkups are 30 minutes in duration. This allows for a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums and overall dental health, as well as advice on at-home tooth and gum care. We remove any plaque and tartar before giving your teeth a polish for that sparkling and confident smile everyone deserves. 

At David Marriott Dental we believe regular maintenance is key as it prevents unnecessary pain and suffering when teeth and gums are neglected. Regular checkups are less costly compared with waiting until dental health deteriorates. 

At the end of a 30-minute exam, clean and polish, our dentists explain the current state of your dental health. If you need further treatment we will provide you with a written treatment plan and fee estimate so that you can plan your future visits to suit your schedule and your budget.

Toothache & Broken Teeth

If you have a particular concern, for instance toothache or a broken tooth, then at your first appointment, which will usually be for half an hour, we can do something to relieve your pain or discomfort and advise you of any further treatment you may need. We will provide you with a written treatment plan and fee estimate so that you can plan your future visits to suit your schedule and your budget.

The Panex Machine for Comfortable X-Rays

The Panex is an x-ray machine that can be used as an alternative to the small intraoral winged x-ray devices that some people find are uncomfortable in their mouth.

Regular Recall Service

Most of our longstanding patients use our regular recall service so they won’t forget when their yearly check-up is due. We can send you either an appointment made by us, or a reminder that it is time to call us for an appointment.

Extractions

At David Marriott Dental we are committed to saving teeth whenever possible. The dentist will advise you whether the tooth can be filled or whether it needs to come out. After your extraction we will give you advice on how to care for the site of the extraction over the next few days.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

If you have concerns about your wisdom teeth you can discuss them with one of our dentists. Extraction of wisdom teeth is usually a straightforward procedure.

Fillings & Restorations

We offer both amalgam and composite (tooth-coloured) fillings. In many situations amalgam and composite fillings will be as strong and durable as each other but composite restorations will have a more natural appearance. There is no evidence to suggest any health risks associated with amalgam restorations, and we are happy to use this material due to its proven durability. If however, patients wish to avoid these restorations then we are happy to accommodate this.

Gum Treatments

Failure to keep your gums in good health can result in bacteria and tartar settling in between your teeth. This can eventually lead to gum disease, pain and loosening of teeth. However, daily cleaning and regular check-ups at David Marriott Dental can go a long way towards eliminating bacteria and preventing gum disease, or at the very least keeping it under control.

ACC Treatments

We are a registered provider of dental services for ACC. If you have an accident and damage your teeth give us a call; we can fix your teeth and manage the claim process for you.

FREE Dental Care for Children & Teenagers

Under the Government’s Oral Health Services for Adolescents scheme we provide free dental care to teenagers under the age of 18 years. To enrol your teenager with us all you need to do is contact us for an appointment. We also treat younger children upon referral from a School Dental Therapist, or if they need treatment as the result of an accident.

Dental Fissure Sealants

The grooves and valleys on the surface of your molar teeth are very susceptible to dental decay. By applying fissure sealants, a protective coating for your molars, we can make teeth cleaning easier and reduce the chances of decay.

Contact Sport Mouthguards

If you play a contact sport a mouthguard is essential. Customised mouthguards provide much better protection than off-the-shelf mouthguards as they're specially designed to fit your own mouth and stay secure while still allowing you to breathe and speak easily. Customised mouthguards can be made transparent or in a range of fun colours.

Night Splints

Teeth grinding while sleeping (bruxism) can lead to facial muscle pain, headaches and can also result in chipping and fracturing of your teeth, but there is a solution. Similar to a mouthguard, night splints can be specially designed to fit your mouth, teeth and gums, and will help prevent long-term damage to your teeth from teeth grinding.
