Dental Terminology

Cosmetic Dentistry:

Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells typically made of porcelain or composite resin. They are designed to enhance the appearance of teeth by covering the front surface. Veneers address various cosmetic concerns such as discolouration, chips, and minor misalignment. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our skilled cosmetic dentists precisely bond veneers to teeth, creating a natural-looking result that improves both aesthetics and confidence.

Gum Contouring: Gum contouring, or gum reshaping, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the gum line. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our experienced dentists use advanced techniques to remove excess gum tissue, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile. This procedure is ideal for individuals with a “gummy smile” or those seeking a more harmonious gum-to-tooth ratio.

Invisalign: At Droitwich Dental Studio, we offer Invisalign as a discreet orthodontic treatment option. Invisalign utilises a series of clear aligners that gradually straighten teeth. These virtually invisible aligners are removable, allowing for easy maintenance of oral hygiene and the enjoyment of your favourite foods. Our skilled dentists provide personalised Invisalign treatment plans to help you achieve a straighter smile comfortably and discreetly.

Teeth Whitening: Droitwich Dental Studio offers professional teeth whitening treatments to brighten your smile. Our dentists use safe and effective whitening techniques to remove stains and discolouration caused by ageing, certain foods and drinks, tobacco use, and poor oral hygiene. With our in-office or take-home whitening options, you can enjoy a noticeably whiter smile and renewed confidence.

Diagnostic and Imaging:

Digital X-Rays: At Droitwich Dental Studio, we utilise state-of-the-art digital X-rays to capture detailed images of your teeth and supporting structures. This advanced imaging technology allows our dentists to make accurate diagnoses and treatment plans while minimising radiation exposure. Digital X-rays provide clearer images and enable our team to assess your oral health with greater precision and efficiency.

Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: Our experienced dentists at Droitwich Dental Studio include specialists in oral and maxillofacial radiology. This dental speciality focuses on utilising imaging techniques such as X-rays, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose and manage diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaws, and related structures. Through their expertise, they provide comprehensive evaluations and collaborate with other dental professionals to deliver personalised treatment plans.

Emergency Dentistry:

Dental Emergency: At Droitwich Dental Studio, we understand that dental emergencies can happen at any time. We prioritise prompt care for dental emergencies such as severe tooth pain, dental trauma, knocked-out teeth, and other urgent situations. Our experienced emergency dental team is ready to address your immediate needs, relieve pain, and provide necessary treatments to save teeth and restore oral health.

General Dentistry:

Dentigerous cyst: A dentigerous cyst is a fluid-filled sac that forms around the crown of an unerupted or partially erupted tooth. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our skilled dentists can diagnose and manage dentigerous cysts. Treatment typically involves the surgical removal of the cyst to prevent potential complications and ensure the healthy development of the affected tooth.

Endodontics: Endodontics is a specialised field of dentistry focusing on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental pulp and root canal-related conditions. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our skilled endodontists utilise advanced techniques to perform root canal treatments. By removing infected or damaged pulp, cleaning the root canals, and sealing them, we aim to alleviate pain, eliminate infection, and save your natural tooth.

Hypodontia: Hypodontia is a condition characterised by the congenital absence of one or more permanent teeth. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our dentists are experienced in managing cases of hypodontia. Treatment options may involve orthodontic interventions, dental prosthetics, or dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore proper function and aesthetics.

Malocclusion: Malocclusion refers to the misalignment or improper positioning of teeth and jaws. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our skilled dentists can diagnose and treat various forms of malocclusion. Orthodontic treatments such as braces or Invisalign may be recommended to correct alignment issues, improve oral function, and enhance the overall aesthetics of your smile.

Periodontics: Droitwich Dental Studio provides specialised periodontal care. Periodontics focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum diseases. Our experienced periodontists offer comprehensive periodontal evaluations, scaling and root planing (deep cleaning), gum grafting, periodontal surgery, and dental implant placement. Through personalised periodontal maintenance plans, we aim to preserve your gum health and overall oral well-being.

Subgingival: The term “subgingival” refers to the area below the gum line. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our dental professionals are skilled in treating subgingival conditions such as gum disease. Through deep cleaning techniques and subgingival restorations, we aim to promote gum health and restore stability and natural aesthetics to your smile.

Torus: Tori are bony growths that may develop in the oral cavity. At Droitwich Dental Studio, our experienced dentists can diagnose and manage tori. While tori are typically benign and asymptomatic, they can interfere with speech, chewing, or denture fitting in some cases. Surgical intervention is considered when functional or aesthetic concerns are present.

Xerostomia: Xerostomia, or dry mouth, can be addressed at Droitwich Dental Studio. Our dental professionals understand the discomfort and potential oral health implications of reduced saliva production. We offer personalised management strategies to alleviate symptoms, address underlying causes, promote hydration, and maintain optimal oral health.

Restorative Dentistry:

Dental Crowns: Droitwich Dental Studio provides high-quality dental crowns to restore damaged or decayed teeth. Our skilled dentists carefully craft custom-made crowns using materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys. Dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of a tooth, restoring its strength, shape, and appearance. With our precise placement techniques, we aim to provide durable and aesthetically pleasing results.

Dental Implants: At Droitwich Dental Studio, we offer dental implants as a long-lasting solution for missing teeth. Our experienced dentists surgically place titanium implants into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for dental restorations. Dental implants offer numerous benefits, including improved chewing ability, natural aesthetics, preservation of jawbone structure, and enhanced overall oral function. With our expertise, we strive to deliver personalised implant treatments for optimal outcomes.

Root Canal Treatment: Droitwich Dental Studio specialises in root canal treatments, also known as endodontic treatments. Our skilled dentists perform this procedure to save teeth that are infected, decayed, or injured. Root canal treatment involves removing the infected dental pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the root canals, and sealing them to prevent reinfection. With our expertise in endodontics, we aim to alleviate pain, eliminate infection, and preserve your natural tooth structure.
