Wisdom teeth removal
Are your wisdom teeth giving you grief? It might be time to have them removed. These may have to be extracted if they get infected or start to affect other teeth causing your oral hygiene to be compromised.
Regular routine dental examinations are the most important step to maintaining both healthy teeth, and gums for a lifetime.
At Parm Gill Dental in Thorndon, we will discuss all your dental concerns and needs in a caring and professional manner. We will undertake a full examination of your teeth including X-rays and will respond to any queries or anxieties you may have about treatments.
After the examination we also provide you with a written costed treatment plan. With yet another reason to relax, here at Parm Gill we are sensitive not only to your dental needs but also your budget. Maintaining your oral health is our top priority.
Hygiene and preventative care
Our motto here at Parm Gill Dental is "Prevention is better than cure." Our goals are to ensure your gums and teeth improve in health because we'd like you to keep you smiling throughout your life!
It is a general recommendation by all dentists that in order to maintain good oral hygiene, teeth should be cleaned professionally at least twice a year. So here at Parm Gill Dental in Thorndon, we have two expert hygienists to carry out regular scaling and plaque removal to prevent cavities gum disease.
Do you have a fear of the dentist? Then sedation is a very safe and pleasant way of accomplishing all your dental care. This is suitable for even the most anxious of patients, and before starting any treatments we will review your medical history and can explain just how sedation can work for you.
Root canal therapy
With tooth decay, when the nerve becomes infected, root canal therapy is carried out to clean, disinfect and fill the insides of the tooth. This type of therapy alleviates pain, prevents permanent damage to decayed teeth, and is often the alternative to a tooth extraction. A standard rubber dam is used for maximal patient comfort to prevent re-infection and contamination of the canals with pathogenic microorganisms.
As an alternative to conventional braces, we offer "Invisalign". Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners that are custom moulded to fit you as an alternative to braces while still gradually aligning your teeth into the desired position. The absence of tedious metal wires or bands irritating the soft tissues in your mouth makes Invisalign the clear alternative to conventional braces.

The revolutionary Inman Aligner is a simple orthodontic appliance that is used to straighten crooked or misaligned front teeth. Its main advantage is that it achieves rapid tooth straightening in a fraction of the time of traditional metal braces or clear braces systems, as well as being a cheaper alternative.
It allows you to achieve breathtaking results in a mere few weeks using a single appliance. It can also be removed and inserted as easily as a retainer so you are free to eat, clean your teeth or attend social events without difficulty or discomfort.
The time taken to achieve both these results was 10 weeks
Invisible tooth coloured composite fillings are used routinely at our practice. Composites are a combination of a resin and nano-particles of glass and are used to restore cavitated teeth so they not only look good, but function correctly. We use this composite filling routinely, as many people are concerned about the potential risks of mercury containing silver fillings.
When a larger filling is required, a porcelain or gold onlay may be a better option. These provide greater strength in the long term where there is minimal tooth structure to predictably support a white filling.
