Our friendly and professional dentists will diagnose any dental disorders and work with you to design a personalised treatment plan that suits your condition and needs.

White fillings

Even with a great oral hygiene routine and regular check-ups, many people end up needing a filling at some stage in their life. This is usually the result of tooth decay or trauma, such as an accident which has resulted in a damaged tooth.

White fillings are popular with many of our patients. These fillings are made from bonded composite materials which can be altered to match the colour of your existing teeth. White fillings provide a durable solution to tooth decay or injury, with an added bonus that they tend to have a more natural look than older types of fillings.

At Dulwich Dental, we can also replace any amalgam (silver) fillings you may have. These can sometimes make it harder to spot tooth decay because they show up opaque on x-rays and can cause the tooth to crack or chip depending on the size of the amalgam filling.

If you think you need a filling or would like to have a silver filling replaced, contact our experienced team for an appointment.

Endodontic treatment (root canal therapy)

At Dulwich Dental, we believe that retaining your own teeth is better than extraction. That’s why we aim to save and restore your teeth whenever possible.

Our dentists use endodontic treatment (sometimes more commonly known as ‘root canal therapy’) to salvage severely infected teeth which would have likely required extraction in the past. Your teeth contain so-called “pulp” at the root of the tooth, which can become infected if decay isn’t addressed. A dental pulp infection or other issue requiring root canal therapy can cause a number of symptoms, including:

Wisdom teeth removal*

Wisdom teeth usually erupt during your late teens or early 20’s on either side of the upper and lower jaw. For some people, they cause no complications at all; in other cases, they can cause problems if there is insufficient room in the jaw. If there is not enough room, the wisdom teeth may only partially erupt and make it difficult to properly take care of your dental hygiene – which can lead to decay or gum infection.

Crowded wisdom teeth can rub against the cheek and cause discomfort and even chewing problems. They can also push against the other teeth and affect the bite severely. In such cases, it is usually recommended to remove the wisdom teeth.* 

For particularly anxious patients, or during more complex procedures, a general anaesthetic can be administered. General anaesthetics carry their own risks, and you should consult with your doctor before making a decision. 

Treatments for TMJ disorders

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction is a common problem, but it may not be immediately obvious to you that something is wrong. The TMJ joint connects the jaw with the skull. We use this joint on a daily basis to perform functions such as chewing, swallowing, talking, yawning, coughing, breathing and sneezing. As a result, a problem within this joint can sometimes cause pain, discomfort and fatigue. Common symptoms of a TMJ disorder can include sore or stiff muscles around the jaw and ears, grinding your teeth, clicking or locking of your jaw when you open or close your mouth (hence the common term “lockjaw”), clenching, and difficulty using your front teeth to bite or tear food. 

For those with TMJ disorders, the severity of symptoms can vary greatly, which often means the recommended treatments can be just as varied. Treatments may include wearing a splint, plate or fixture either during the day or at night time in order to realign the jaw.

Dr Isabel Drewling


Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

Loream It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
