Routine Family Dentistry

Early indicators of many diseases including diabetes, strokes and heart conditions are obvious in the mouth at an early stage and this is something we always monitor as part of our dental examinations.
Your routine dental examination will include:
- Looking for evidence of new decay
- A mouth cancer check
- Discussing any areas of sensitivity and discomfort with you
- Assessing the stability of existing dental work
- Examining signs of gum disease and gingivitis
- Discussing and advising on your dental hygiene

Missing a tooth or teeth? Loose dentures ? Then implants may be the solution for you.
About Dental Implants
Dental implants are nothing new. They have been used to permanently replace teeth since the mid 60s. Implants by Dentsply, used at Colne Dental Care have been on the market over 40 years. Based on years of extensive research, they have developed a unique Dental Implant system that provides a secure anchor for new, natural-looking teeth.
Dental implants have many advantages compared to traditional crown and bridge solutions.
Six reasons why you should consider implants instead of other solutions
- They look, feel and function like your natural teeth
- Healthy teeth do not need to be ground down to support the Dental Implants (unlike with crowns and bridges)
- Anchoring dental implants in the jawbone stimulates bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, aesthetic result while helping to maintain facial structures
- Dental Implants do not require any adhesives to hold the new teeth in place
- They eliminate the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures
- You have a secure, permanent tooth replacement
What is a Dental Implant
Dental Implants are small screws made of Titanium. It is a metal accepted by the body and it has a well documented ability to heal together with bone tissue.
Invisalign Teeth Straightening System
What is the treatment process?
Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with an Invisalign-trained doctor. Your doctor will evaluate your smile and then map out a precise, customized digital treatment plan that showcases the step-by-step transformation of your smile. once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. you will wear each set of aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day, changing to a new set of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks, as directed by your doctor. each set of aligners will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place, according to your treatment plan, until you reach your beautiful new smile.
How long does Invisalign treatment take?
Depending on the complexity of your case, you could complete your treatment in as little as 6 months. but you’ll start seeing results in a matter of weeks.
What are Invisalign clear aligners made of and what do they look like?
Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible — people may not even notice you’re wearing them. You can remove them to eat and drink, to brush and floss, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate your mouth or break.
Unlike other brands, Invisalign clear aligners are made from patented SmartTrack material, which is more comfortable and provides a better fit.1 Invisalign aligners are also trimmed based on your gum line for comfort and appearance. As the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, we have successfully improved over 8 million smiles, including 1.4 million teen smiles.
QST Fixed Braces –
The Results Are Clear!
We ONLY use clear brackets.These have a reliable and proven track record worldwide for their performance and beautiful aesthetics, being nearly invisible once placed in the mouth. We also use bespoke tooth coloured wires, making our braces the most aesthetic compared with any similar systems available. The braces are only used on the front 6 to 8 teeth, to correct mild misalignment.
This treatment works much like removable aligners, but tooth movement is more predictable and more than twice as quick. The braces put gentle pressure on the teeth to level and align the teeth with minimal discomfort.
We do not claim to address major orthodontic issues. These are referred to other orthodontic specialists, and therefore, with good case selection this can be done very quickly, making it more affordable than other orthodontic options.
Standard orthodontic mechanics are still involved in the use of Quick Straight Teeth™, but because it’s just the front teeth, the force required is minimal. The wires exert mild pressure to move the teeth, and this is done without the need for severe tightening which causes the discomfort noted in conventional orthodontic treatments.
