ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

1 Riverton road has been the venue for Dentistry for the last 19 years. The original CBD practice, by the likes of Dr Jackson three generations ago, was moved to this venue by Dr Brian Faure. In 2011 Dr Pieter Cilliers relocated from the Southern Cape to take new ownership bringing with him an additional 22 years of dental excellence and experience.
The practice has yet again positioned itself to offer solid progressive first world dentistry in a forever changing and challenging environment where quality in service and products are compromised.

Our services are diverse ranging from but not limited to general dentistry to more specialized treatment modalities like implantology, orthodontics, Tempero-mandibular disorders, laser therapies, CAD/CAM metal-free ceramics, facial aesthetics and anti-aging.

Diagnostics & Preventative Care

We are constantly promoting preventive dental care in our practice with services and products. We have a recall diary in place for all existing patients to optimize oral health through the prevention of disease.

We have full-time Oral hygienists in our service to render the following: -

  • Scale and polishing (by hand and Ultrasonic instrumentation)
  • Oral hygiene instruction
  • Fissure sealants
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Bleaching techniques
  • Orthodontic records and analysis
  • Digital radiographs
Fissure Sealant Technique
Premolars and molars have natural grooves on the biting surfaces called fissures. More often these fissures are very deep and beyond the reach and ability of being cleaned properly through tooth brushing. The potential accumulation of food particles and the attraction of bacteria can cause demineralization of the enamel with early onset of decay. We firstly clean, acid etch and then bond a flowable resin into these fissures and the tooth is then protected from bacterial attack. As teeth erupt in early childhood and teenage years this technique can greatly enhance the long-term prognosis and health of these teeth.

Orthopedic Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment involves the movement of teeth in the underlying alveolar bone. This treatment modality usually improves the smile line and the occlusion of the teeth between the upper and the lower jaw.

When the upper and lower jaws are in abnormal relationship with each other or with the anterior cranial base, optimal Cranio-Facial development can be compromised.

In the growing and developmental years it is possible to improve and correct the imbalances by steering the growth patterns in more favorable directions, aligning the jaws in better positions and ultimately creating better Cranio-Facial harmonies.

Good jaw relationships and arch forms make it easy to later level and align the teeth through orthodontic treatment.

Even in later mature years orthopaedic remodeling of arch forms in combination with orthodontic treatment can make positive differences and improve quality of life.

Tempero Mandibular Disorders

Healthy and functional jaw joints are of the utmost importance for good quality of life throughout the life span of humans.

Good functional ability (the way we chew food) is of high importance in our digestive system. All this starts in the mouth with the way the joints; teeth, muscles and jaws work together as a system. The digestive tract as well as the airway is involved when there are abnormalities in the system. Tempero-mandibular –disorders refer to the system being in disharmony.

The following signs and symptoms may be indicative that Tempero-Mandibular- disorders are present: -

  • The inability to open ones mouth spontaneously to 51mm.
  • Any clicking jaw joint sounds during mouth opening and closure.
  • Deviation of the lower jaw to one side when opening.
  • Pain associated with opening and closing the mouth.
  • Muscular spasms and pain in the jaws neck and shoulders.
  • Constant headaches spreading up into the skull.
  • Vertigo symptoms that cannot be explained otherwise.

We can diagnose, plan, manage and offer corrective type treatment modalities.

Metal-Free Restorative Treatment

Our practice follows metal-free dental restorative procedures and protocols.
We do not place Amalgam fillings and we advocate and advise our patients to become metal-free.
When we remove Amalgam fillings we follow these strict protocols: -

  • Minimal drilling to loosen “blocks” of amalgam and Ultrasonic scaling to vibrate pieces loose.
  • All the above is done under maximum water cooling, high volume suction and rubberdam protection.
We advocate the use of composite restorative materials for smaller restorative procedures. Cerec®” ceramic cad/cam technology in all our restorative procedures that include inlays, onlays, crowns and implant-supported crowns.
Through this technology most restorations can be completed in a single visit without the need for impressions or temporization.

Implantology & Prosthetics

Full spectrum of implantology offered in-house including surgery, prosthodontics and Cad/Cam fabrication.

Facial Aesthetics & Anti-Aging

During the aging process our facial characteristics change from a inverted triangular shape to a sagging triangular shape.
Society demands that people are economically active for longer and therefore the trend developed for people to look younger for longer.
Through our dentistry we can prevent the loss of tooth structure by ensuring that the vertical height of occlusion is not decreasing.
We can restore the shape and form of teeth through ceramic restorations. This inner circle of “hard tissue” stability supports the outer layer of soft tissue being the lips, muscle and skin. To optimize the smile and facial appearance we can now further improve lip quality, lip texture and support.
Skin quality can be enhanced with prevention of skin folds and lines by using non surgical products such as dermal fillers and specific products for facial muscle management.
Through these facial Aesthetic improvements the natural aging process can be counteracted and we can look younger for longer.

Contact us for an anti-aging assessment and more information on how we can assist you in looking younger for longer.

Laser Dentistry

 Laser technology has been incorporated but not limited in the following general and specialized dental applications in our practice: -

  • Minimal invasive restorative dentistry - Cleaning of dental fissures and small surface cavities.
  • Endodontic treatment. - Debrimenting and sterilization of root canal dentin walls to prevent chronic bacterial activity before obturation (filling and sealing) of root canals.
  • Surgical applications in periodontal disease to optimize better treatment outcomes. - The surgical intervention is less invasive, reduces healing time and post-operative recovery is improved.
  • Peri-implantitis. - Infection around dental implants is managed and stabilized much more effectively and bio-stimulation of bone cells can even improve the bone support around the implants.
  • Small surgical procedures. - Removal of small lesions, healing of mouth ulcers, removal of Frenulae, exposure of implants etc. These procedures are far less invasive with improved recovery and reduced post-operative pain and swelling.
  • Aesthetic Dentistry. - Laser removal of Cultural gum tattooing. Crown-lengthening procedures in “gummy smile” situations.

Both Dr Pieter Cilliers and Dr Cassandra Webb are currently enrolled in an international advanced course in Laser Dentistry.
