Orthodontics (teeth straightening)
The word ‘orthodontics’ has its roots in a Greek verb meaning ‘to straighten teeth,’ and today means a branch of dentistry ensuring the correct positioning of teeth rather than their maintenance.
Orthodontics, which use devices such as braces to solve dental problems such as overcrowding, poorly spaced teeth, cross bites, overbites, is mainly used to treat children and adolescents, but can also be beneficial for adults. James Hull Associates’ qualified orthodontists can give you advice and a treatment tailored to your specific needs.
Cosmetic and Aesthetic Dentistry
The term ‘cosmetic’ is used to describe any elective procedure that aims to make your smile more aesthetically pleasing. In this section you can find out about veneers, gum shaping and more.

Gum Disease and Health
Healthy teeth begin with healthy gums, so if you’re suffering from bleeding, sensitive or swollen gums, bad breath, or teeth that seem to have moved, it may be time to take a closer look at your gums.
At James Hull Associates we can give you advice on how to prevent gum (periodontal) disease, bleeding gums and dental decay. Regular visits to your dentist and hygienist will ensure that any problems are identified quickly so that you can stop gum disease in its tracks.
If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, but our dentists will work with you to rectify gum problems and repair any damage to your teeth or jaw that might already have occurred. We may advise you on a long-term treatment plan to ensure you maintain good oral health over the coming years and you’ll receive excellent guidance on how to look after your gums and teeth.
We can even provide you with dietary advice and instructions on how best to brush and floss your teeth so that you avoid the build-up of plaque that can cause gum disease. With healthy gums and a fresh mouth you’ll feel on top of the world.

Endodontics is another name for root canal treatment, which is used to prevent and treat problems at the root of the teeth. Read on to find out what root canal treatment is really all about.
- Root Canal Treatment
Dental implants (and other prosthodontic treatments) can bring back the smile to people who have lost teeth through decay, accidents, gum disease or excessive wear and tear. They are a permanent and fixed solution for missing teeth, providing patients with the nearest possible alternative to their natural dentition.
A dental implant is a metal screw, which is fitted in the mouth at the sight of the missing tooth before being covered with a crown. Dental implants can be used to replace either single teeth or all of your teeth in both the upper and lower jaw.
Implants can also be used as a solution to ill fitting dentures or to help secure crowns and bridges. The process begins with an assessment by your dentist to determine whether implants are the best form of treatment. It might be that other approaches are recommended, such as a crown, a bridge or dentures.
Your JHA implantologist will carefully insert your implants before placing a protective cover over them. The implant establishes itself over a period of three to six months as the bone grows around the screw and holds it firmly in place. A crown is then placed over the implant to replace the original natural tooth.
Although implant dentistry takes time, the results are well worth it, providing you with a beautiful smile and complete confidence when biting, chewing and laughing.
