At Yealmpton Dental Practice, we are proud to exemplify a patient-first philosophy that is founded on progressive and efficacious dental techniques, patient education and the reliance on up to date dental equipment.

It is not every dental centre that can boast of offering dental care that encompasses both general dentistry as well as the care provided by a specialist dentist Devon. At our Yealmpton Dental Practice, we offer an in-house specialist dentist Devon for treatments that require deeper insight and a higher level of dental knowledge. We have a specialist dentist Devon for all the main branches of specialist dentistry including endodontics, periodontics, prosthodontics and restorative dentistry.

When is endodontic treatment required?

Endodontics is the field in dental care especially devoted to the saving of teeth in the process of decay. Endodontists are mainly concerned with the dental pulp and tooth root and rehabilitating the tooth from infection, decay and injuries with the use of advanced techniques, the most common of which are root canal procedures.

The life benefits of endodontic treatment include thwarting the further profession of infection, preserving the health of existing tooth structures and repairing the tooth to restore its look and feel.

When is periodontics treatment required?

Periodontics treatment focuses specifically on inflammatory conditions that wreak havoc on gums and other supporting structures that reinforce dental function. A periodontist is a highly trained dental practitioner who concentrates their knowledge and skills in the prevention, identification and treatment of periodontal issues.

The life benefits of periodontics treatment include reducing the threat of tooth loss, decreasing the risk of a patient needing to treat cavities or suffering from tooth decay and reducing the risk of bad breath.

When is prosthodontics treatment required?

Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of replacing missing teeth with suitable fixed or removable dental prostheses; the most common of which are dental implants, dental bridges and dentures.

The life benefits of receiving prosthodontic care to replace missing teeth include an improved dental appearance for confident smiles and an improved bite to widen the choice of a more varied diet.

Why see a specialist dentist?

Certain dental conditions progress to the stage that is outside the scope of general dental care. Patients are often referred to a specialist dentist by the general dental practitioner for their additional training in a speciality area of dental diseases. In addition to their expert-level knowledge, a specialist dentist will have extensive experience in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment in the speciality area they practice in as their main focus only deals with this particular area. This level of insight and practical real-world experience is to the immense benefit of patients suffering from advanced conditions.

For a first-class level of patient care, choose Yealmpton Dental Practice. In addition to offering a diverse dental care menu including specialist dental care, we ensure that our Practice is equipped with modern dental technologies to offer next-level quality dental care.
