Our Kensington Dental Services Include:

Composite Resin Fillings

Composite resin fillings are a natural looking filling that can be fitted in our rooms in a single appointment. They can be used to fill front or back teeth. Different shades are available to blend in with the natural colour of your tooth.

Before the filling can be bonded to your tooth, Dr Danka will first clean your tooth and remove any decayed tissue. Bonding is done to make your filling more durable. If you’re looking for a low-cost, aesthetically pleasing option, choose composite resin fillings.

Many of our patients have opted for composite resin fillings as they have a more natural looking appearance. They can also be used to restore cracked or chipped teeth and fix broken teeth.

Our practice is equipped with innovative dental equipment and high-quality white fillings. This will ensure that you enjoy satisfying results. Our professional dentists are fully capable of not only restoring the functions of your teeth, but also the wellness of your overall oral health.

Dentures

Dentures are a proven way of restoring dental function after the loss of your teeth. Dentures are often a more affordable option than other tooth replacement options such as dental implants. They improve your self-esteem and can help you feel more confident about your appearance and ability to communicate.

Dentures can replace missing teeth, giving you a full, natural-looking smile. They can also help you speak more clearly by providing support for your lips and cheeks. If you’ve been struggling with any of the above, allow Dr Danka to custom-make and fit your dentures.

Minor Oral Surgery Kensington

Dr Danka is experienced at performing minor oral surgeries such as extractions and placement of dental implants. Oral surgeries can be performed if your tooth can longer be extracted the conventional way. Such cases include when your tooth is so badly damaged that it cannot be repaired.

There are several other signs that may indicate the need for minor oral surgery. These include impacted wisdom teeth, crowded or misaligned teeth, or cysts or tumours in the jaw or mouth.

It is important to note that these signs may be indicative of other issues as well, and a proper diagnosis can only be made by a dental professional like Dr Danka. It is recommended to consult with us to determine the appropriate course of treatment.

Oral Hygienist Kensington

At Drs de Wet Danka & Associates, your oral hygiene is important to us. It is also crucial for several other reasons. These include preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath. Brushing and flossing regularly can remove plaque and bacteria that can lead to tooth decay and cavities.

Poor oral hygiene has been linked to various health issues, such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Good oral hygiene not only helps maintain a healthy mouth, but also a pleasant appearance and a healthy self-esteem.

Root Canal Treatment Kensington

Root canal treatment is needed when the pulp of a tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or inflamed. This can be caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures on a tooth, a crack or chip in a tooth, or trauma to the tooth. Symptoms of an infected or inflamed pulp include severe toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold, swelling and tenderness in the gums, and sometimes a visible pimple on the gums.

If left untreated, an infected pulp can lead to an abscess, which is a pocket of pus at the end of the tooth’s roots. Root canal treatment involves removing the infected or inflamed pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and filling and sealing it. This helps to save the tooth and prevent further infection or damage. Should you suspect you may need this treatment, contact Dr Danka as soon as possible.

Routine Dental Check-Ups

Routine dental check-ups are important for maintaining good oral health and preventing potential dental problems. During a check-up, Dr Danka or our oral hygienist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other issues. They will also clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease if left untreated.

Regular check-ups allow our dentists to catch and treat dental problems early, when they are most manageable and less costly to treat. Early detection and treatment of dental issues can prevent more serious problems from developing and can help to preserve your natural teeth.

In addition to checking for dental problems, we can also give you personalized advice on how to maintain good oral hygiene and address any specific concerns you may have.

Paediatric Dentist Kensington

Dr Danka is a paediatric dentist servicing patients in and around the Kensington area. He is a dental professional who specializes in the care of infants, children, and adolescents. Children have unique dental needs that are different from adults, and a paediatric dentist is trained to address these needs.

There are several reasons why a child may need to visit a paediatric dentist:

  • Early detection and prevention of dental problems: A paediatric dentist is trained to detect dental problems in children at an early stage, which can prevent more serious issues from developing. They can also provide guidance on how to care for a child’s teeth and gums, and how to prevent dental problems.
  • Specialized care for children: Paediatric dentists are trained to work with children and understand how to make them feel comfortable during dental procedures. They use child-friendly equipment and techniques and can provide care that is tailored to a child’s age and development.
  • Treatment of dental injuries: Children are more likely to experience dental injuries such as chipped or knocked-out teeth. Paediatric dentists are skilled in treating these types of injuries, and can help to preserve a child’s natural teeth.
  • Building healthy habits: Early visits to the paediatric dentist will help children develop healthy oral care habits that will last a lifetime.

It’s recommended for children to have their first dental visit at about age 1 or when the first tooth appears. Regular check-ups can help keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy, and prevent dental problems from developing.
