We offer a full range of family and implant dental care from our state of the art surgery.

We Specialise In

Prevention

The main issues with teeth are dental decay (caries), gum issues (periodontal problems) and excessive wear and tear (parafunction). The key to hanging on to your teeth is having the information to prevent these problems. It surprises us that this information is generally not well known amongst the population.

Early detection of problems is important because with teeth, once you have a problem, it’s often too late and the fix is major. This is done with visual inspection and with the help of x-rays. That is why routine check ups at Aviva Dental are a healthier, more cost effective and easier way to look after your teeth.

Replacing missing teeth

Missing teeth can affect your smile, destabilise surrounding teeth and put more stress on remaining teeth as well as leaving you with too few teeth to chew with. At Aviva Dental we offer a full range of methods to replace missing teeth. The options for these may involve implants, bridges or dentures.

At Aviva Dental for implant treatment, Krishna will see you from start to finish for the assessment, surgery and prosthetics.

Astra tech implants used at Aviva Dental employ three of the latest technologies to reduce bone loss around the implant. These include platform switching, internal high friction connections and a polished collar.

Whitening

We like the fresh smile that our whitening system produces because it does not damage teeth unlike other treatment alternatives. We offer both the Phillips Zoom Whitespeed in chair whitening or a take home whitening system. Talk to us at Aviva Dental to discuss which treatment suits you best.

Children's dentistry

We think good dental habits start at a young age. It is important that dental visits are started early with a focus on prevention and if things do go off the rails, we feel it should be managed early and comfortably. This produces confident and happy young patients with great smiles. “Happy gas” is a useful facility also available for our young patients.

Root Fillings

In some cases, the damage to a tooth from extensive decay, previous nerve damage or a knock may cause the tooth to abscess. Root fillings are a method to preserve the tooth and it is simpler and healthier to do this where possible rather than replacing a tooth.

At Aviva Dental, this is a routine treatment for which we use the latest rotary instruments, apex locaters and digital low dose x-rays.

To better serve you, we use state of the art

Dental Technologies

Happy Gas

Every visit should be easy to cope with. One of the tools we find useful is happy gas (nitrous oxide). The nitrous oxide used is at a much lower level than in emergency departments and labour wards, therefore most people find it a pleasant experience. This makes it useful with more complex treatments. It is very safe and you can drive home after.

Electronic Instrument Tracking

We use the latest computer driven Class B sterilizing equipment because we take infection control seriously. Instruments are electronically tracked so that we can ensure your visit is safe.

In-built Ceiling TV

At Aviva Dental, you don’t have to stare at the blank ceiling. With our in-built ceiling plasma TV, you can lie back and enjoy a various selection of serene images during your visit.

Digital Imaging

It’s not possible to do great dentistry without good information. To help achieve this we use digital imaging technology.

The digital x-rays systems we use are safer, higher definition and faster than traditional systems. In addition to in-mouth x-rays we also have the facility of full mouth OPG imaging on-site.

Our intraoral camera keeps you in the picture by giving you a “dentist’s” view of what’s going on.

Phillips Zoom Whitening

We find that as the pace of life increases, most people do not have enough hours in the day. Our new Phillips Zoom Whitespeed whitening system offers another option to get that fresh smile faster and simpler than you normally would with the traditional “take home” method.

Apex Locator and Rotary Endodontic System

The success rate on any endodontic treatment is related to how well the tooth is cleaned. Electronic apex locating and rotary endodontic systems are methods we use to help achieve this.
