At Baldevs Dental Care we are proud to offer the services of Dr Kris Fernandes – a dentist with a special interest in complex root canal treatments (also know as endodontic treatment).
He specialises in:
When decay spreads into the nerve of a tooth it can cause the nerve to become inflamed, die or become infected. Sometimes this can cause bad tooth ache and sometimes the nerve can die without any pain. When this happens – root canal treatment can be required to save the tooth. Root canal treatment is a highly skilled procedure.
Dr Kris Fernandes uses the latest technology and systems available to treat your teeth. Using this latest technology we can provide pain free root canal treatment and aim for the best quality and success rates possible.
Root canal treatment usually takes a few appointments to complete. Local anaesthetic is used and the decay in your tooth is removed – similar to how a filling is done. The dead or inflamed nerve is cleaned out and disinfected. The nerve is replaced with a filling material to seal it off to bacteria and to prevent problems in the future. A crown will usually be recommended after this treatment to protect the brittle tooth.
We will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area and minimise any discomfort you may experience during treatment. There may be some soreness following the procedure but this will pass relatively quickly.
Ultimately your tooth could die due to the infection in the nerve and become discoloured. It may then need to be extracted.
The goal of general dentistry is to remove all disease from your mouth and repair broken down teeth, giving you a perfect smile
There are only 2 dental specialties that only focus on dental esthetics: Prosthodontics and Orthodontics
The implant fixture is first placed, so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added
Sukh joined the practice in 2006.
Since taking up dentistry, because hewanted to combine learning a vocational skill with helping people,
Sukh has loved every minute of his career, and during his eleven years in general practice, he has treated a real mix of patients and cases. He was also a Vocational Trainer for new or recent graduates from 2010-2014.
Sukh really enjoys seeing his patients, whether catching up with regulars or getting to know new faces.
