I’m pregnant. Should I still see my dentist?
During pregnancy, the woman is at greater risk for gum disease because the gums are inflamed due to increased blood flow to the gum tissues caused by changes in hormone levels.
This is why pregnant women are advised to pay more attention to their oral health and dental routine. It’s important to visit a dentist before conception or after the first trimester for check-ups and dental cleaning.
Can I get rid of silver fillings?
Yes. We can replace old and unsightly fillings, including coloured fillings such as silver amalgam fillings, with tooth coloured materials.
For more information about tooth-coloured fillings, go to our composite fillings page.
I have crooked teeth. Do I need braces?
It depends on your case. Typically, the best approach for crooked or misaligned teeth is orthodontic braces.
At EK Dental Surgery, we offer different methods of straightening teeth. We will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and mouth and see which type of braces best suit your case. Our available treatments include traditional braces and Invisalign.
For more information, go to our orthodontics page.
I have chipped teeth. What treatment can you recommend?
Small chips can be fixed with composite fillings. For bigger chips and cracks, we may recommend dental veneers or crowns.
Is dental implant surgery painful?
Not at all. We perform procedures such as this under local anaesthesia in our dental surgery room. The procedure is also less traumatic than a tooth extraction.
For more information, visit our dental implants page.
What are your treatment options for gum disease?
The treatment for gum disease aims to reduce the inflammation. This may involve professional dental cleaning, scaling and root planing for advanced stages, oral hygiene instructions to improve your dental hygiene methods, and treatment for any problems that contribute to the problem. Underlying health conditions must also be treated.
At EK Dental Surgery, we will recommend the best treatment for your gum health problems.

I have stained or discoloured teeth. How can I whiten them?
Teeth whitening is a terrific way to get rid of stained teeth. The most commonly used teeth whitening procedures are professional home whitening systems and in-chair whitening. If you are a good candidate, your dentist will recommend the best tooth whitening option that suits your needs and lifestyle.
