General Dentistry

Choosing Silver Oaks for your choice as a dentist in Kloof will provide you access to the highest quality in dentistry using only the best materials that are of European standards. You won’t have any reworking on your teeth in the long term. Furthermore, we endeavour to make our patients experience as seamless, comfortable and painless as possible. To do this, we offer a choice of anaesthetic options from nitrous oxide happy gas to conscious sedation or full out general anaesthesia. We will discuss during your consult, which option would best suit you.

Cosmetic Dentistry - changing the look of your teeth

If you have generally healthy teeth and just need to perfect your teeth and improve your confidence then our option for a dentist in Kloof is just the right fit for you. Payment plans can be arranged for various cosmetic dentistry treatments. It must be noted that cosmetic improvements to the teeth are not covered by dental plans. The most basic lift you can do for your smile would be to whiten your teeth. This gives the added bonus of youth and good hygiene. Our approach to teeth whitening is a blend of at home bleaching with an in office laser treatment. During the treatment, patients will be given custom fit trays which can be used later on to maintain this newly found brightness.

Veneers are another way to change up the look of your teeth. It allows you to straighten and whiten your teeth in one go. Unlike braces that take over 2 years. Veneers can straighten and whiten your teeth in just 2 or 3 appointments over a two week period. Essentially, veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are attached to the front of your tooth. They improve the appearance because they can be shaped and coloured to give the desired outcome. With dental veneers, gaps and discoloured teeth among other issues can be instantly solved. Porcelain veneers do not stain, so with regard to discoloured teeth, the colouring will remain for its lifespan. It takes just 2 visits to the Silver Oaks option for a dentist in Kloof to fit the veneers, with a follow up visit for a check-up. Click here to learn more about veneers:http://www.silveroaksdentalclinic.co.za/index.php/dental-treatments/veneers

Fixing up problematic teeth

The first solution for fixing problematic teeth at our dentist in Kloof would be the Inman Aligner braces. They are clear when worn and removable so that you can attend that important event or meeting without any thing on your teeth.  They are used for cases where teeth are not overly in need of orthodontic intervention. The Inman Aligner/Clear Aligner is patented and has a case history of straightening teeth between 10 to 16 weeks depending on the severity of the case. The second solution for fixing problematic teeth from the Silver Oaks option for a dentist in Kloof are dental crowns.

Now whereas veneers are placed over the front of the tooth, crowns are placed around the tooth. Dental Crowns are turned to when a patient has lost much of their tooth. This could be due to decay or trauma. The role of the dental crown is to fill up this space and give structure back to the tooth. They do add an aesthetic improvement but they do serve a functional value as well. Dental crowns are milled in-office at Silver Oaks. This means that you could leave with your newly fitted crown in a single visit. Overseas visitors taking advantage of the affordable dental rates at our practice are well suited to our one day cosmetic dentistry services. The third solution does not relate to problematic teeth but when there is no tooth or teeth at all. If you have lost one or all teeth, then all hope is not lost.

Dental implants are your saviour at the Silver Oaks option for a dentist in Kloof. Dr Richard Huson is a specialist when it comes to Implantology. Besides his medical degree from the University of Stellenbosch he has a certificate in Implantology from the University of Cambridge. Dental implants give you back a permanent tooth, negating the need for ill-fitting dentures, but also serves to keep your facial features intact. The earlier they are fitted once the loss of teeth has occurred, results in lesser loss of bone since the implant helps with the jaw bone not shrinking further. Dental implants are the most extreme dental treatment one can have done. Not everybody will qualify and our dentist will have to do a thorough evaluation to ensure that you meet the criteria. If the go ahead has been given, then your treatment plan and quote will be laid out to you. Implants take the course of several months to complete. A damaged tooth may have to be removed and the area healed before the implant can be inserted. The dental implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone. It takes a couple of months for the implant to become a firm fixture in the bone. Since the implant is well into the bone, an abutment (which is just an extender piece to the implant), will then be attached. The replacement ‘tooth’ is then attached to the abutment. The replacement is simply a dental crown which is manufactured according to detailed instructions at our clinic. It is a long process to get implants but much of the time is for healing. As with all cosmetic dental procedures, but more especially with the permanence of this treatment, you must ensure to choose a dentist with the relevant training and experience for the best possible outcome which is what you should expect to receive at the Silver Oaks option for a dentist in Kloof.

Our case of the month for May is Sarah. When Sarah came in to see us she felt embarrassed to smile and was not enjoying her food as she struggled to chew. This had a direct impact on her nutrition and overall health. 

Dr Huson's treatment plan for Sarah was dental bridges. We had to replace her old dental bridges with new ones. All our treatments including our dental bridges are internationally recognised and meet European standards. We offer the highest quality saving you time and money with no replacements required for the future. 

A big advantage of Sarah having her work done at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic was that it was done in less than a week. With our in house lab it was easy to make the necessary adjustments so that Sarah left here extremely happy with the end result. 

The other huge advantage is that our laboratory 'artist' Costa makes sure that it looks as natural as possible and will adapt the dental bridges to match your face, shape, and age.

We encourage our clients to chat to Costa and Dr Huson about their personal requirements with regards to the aesthetics of their treatment.  

The other advantages of having dental bridges done with Silver Oaks Dental Clinic are the following: 

  • It prevents your remaining teeth from shifting which can cause a problem in your bite.
  • It reduces the risk of bone loss thus maintaining the structures of your face.
  • The bridges are permanently fixed thus preventing them from moving around like dentures.
Bridges are not the treatment option for all patients. Dr Huson will need to analyse your teeth and suggest a treatment plan to your specification.

Types of Dental Implants

Which is the best manufacturer for Dental Implants?

Many patients have asked the question is one manufacturer better than the other for Dental Implants.

There are three factors to consider when deciding which Implant manufacturer you should go with. Firstly, you have to look at the grade of titanium being used. All our Dental Implants meet international standards. We offer the highest quality in Dental Implants at the best possible price. You can choose from three reputable long standing companies in the industry once you receive a quote from us i.e. Straumann, Nobel Biocare and MIS CI. Different manufacturers make very different implants for various clinical conditions. Some are short and fat to go in the bone near a sinus. Some are narrow to fit between front teeth. Some integrate very quickly. Dr Huson will decide the best Dental Implants to fit your case. It is important to use a long standing manufacturer should anything go wrong the parts will be easily accessible. The second fact that influences the success of your dental implants is the surgeon placing the Implants. Dr Huson has over 20 years of experience and worked under world renowned celebrity dentist Dr Joe Oliver in the Harley Street Region of London, United Kingdom (where celebrities get their dental treatments done) We have had tremendous success at Silver Oaks Dental Clinic with placing Dental Implants. The third factor that will more likely make your procedure a success is having your specialist use the latest technology and the proper planning and placement of Implants in order to deal with complex Dental Implant procedures.
