- Lasers have an ability to seal blood vessels thereby achieving haemostasis
- By sealing lymphatic vessels, lasers reduce swelling after surgery
- As a result, they reduce operative and postoperative pain by sealing nerve fibres
- Reduces mechanical trauma to the tissue
Our conservative dentistry invloves every kind of restoration of decayed or worn or broken teeth utilising normal fillings. Colour restorations are only done to a normal tooth colour.
We use Laser Dentistry to great effect in this treatment. Some of the benefits include minimal discomfort to the patient, taking the “STING” out of gum surgery.
This treatment involves crowns, bridges and veneers.
This involved treatment for a damaged tooth nerve, either from physical damage or infection. Endodontic Dentistry is more commonly known as Root Canal treatment.
Dental implants are one of the most popular ways to replace teeth lost due to tooth decay or trauma. They consist of titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone where they fuse with bone tissue. Once the implant has fused with the bone, a crown (or cap) is attached to the post. This allows the patient to eat normally without fear of breaking or chipping the new tooth.
Dr Coetzee offers the new clear aligner treatment.
Dr Coetzee’s calm and relaxed way with children, means that he rarely needs to use sedation or general anaesthetic to treat his young patients.
Maxillofacial dentistry is a vast field mostly involving surgery of some kind. Dr Coetzee will do the less complicated removal of impacted teeth under local anaesthetic in his rooms. For the more complex cases where general anaesthetic is required he will refer you to one of the maxillofacial specialist in his network.
This field of treatment involves treating the soft tissue of the mouth.

How to find a dentist near me?
What does it cost to have a tooth removed?
The cost of a simple extraction without insurance ranges from R1200 to R4000. Surgical extractions, however, can cost up to R5000 per tooth. Anesthesia and extraction type determine the price you pay, as well as your tooth’s condition
How much is tooth filling in South Africa?
Depending on the size of the ceramic inlay, fillings (dental restorations) can cost anywhere from R500 to around R6 500.
How many years do you have to study to be a dentist?
Bachelor of Dental Science (BDS) is a five-year, full-time program. The first three years of the program focus on bioethics, health law, and dental sciences. In years four and five, students study the medical, dental, social, and community contexts of dental clinical practice.
Can a dentist pull an infected tooth?
Your dentist will pull (extract) the tooth if it can’t be saved and drain the abscess to get rid of the infection. Antibiotics may not be necessary if the infection is limited to the abscessed area
What is the strongest antibiotic for tooth infection?
For tooth infections, amoxicillin is usually the first choice. A combination of amoxicillin and clavulanate may be prescribed by your dentist if your tooth infection is more serious. Tooth infections are more effectively treated with this combination
