Dr Celehte Fortuin B.Ch.D, PDD Stell, Dentist | GDC Number 74757

Celehte started her career in dentistry over 17 years ago and worked for her first 6 years to complete, with honours, an additional qualification of Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry. As is typical of her inquisitive nature and thirst for knowledge, her passion to further enhance her joy and skill in dentistry took her to a private practice in London. Celehte’s personal interests run deep and by far her greatest passion is Scuba diving. Being a qualified Divemaster, Rescue diver, Technical and Cave diver, she could be mistaken for a fish. For the past 8 years she has a running column as the “Diving Dentist” in their magazine, Tanked up (formerly the London Diver) and is their ‘go-to’ person for consulting with patients who contact the dive chamber on all things tooth / diving related, an area known as Barodontology. Celehte has also acted as lead clinician and mentor to establish and grow a private practice in Australia. Her clinical skill, depth of knowledge and care for her patients, combined with her warm personality quickly spread amongst the community and the practice successfully established itself within a short period of time. Patients remark on Celehte to be professional, warm, knowledgeable, thorough, perfectionist, easy to communicate with, very good at putting patients’ fears at rest, reassuring and friendly! In London she worked within a multidisciplinary team alongside another dentist, hygienist and Specialists in the fields of Orthodontics (braces), Periodontics (dealing with gum disease) and Implantology (replacement of missing teeth with titanium dental implants). Combining in-house training with an array of hands-on and continuing professional development courses, she worked alongside these world leaders in their fields; she honed her skills and enhanced her knowledge in these disciplines.

Dental Implant Consultation

We want to make sure that you are clear and informed on all your dental implant options, which is why we dedicate consultations dedicated to implants. We want you to have a clearer idea on what to expect with the dental implant, ensure you are suitable for the best success and allow you to ask any questions abut treatment and recovery. Your consultation will introduce you to your dental implant expert, who will undergo a full medical history and understand your needs as well as the condition of your oral health for long term success.

X-Rays are usually taken to facilitate the discussion so that it is personal to you and informative. The consultation process should allow you to have a greater understanding of dental implants, alternative treatments, advantages and disadvantages of different modalities both implants and non implants, timing, procedures and costs making you better informed and putting you in a position to make the correct choices about the treatment plan that’s best for you.

Denture Consultation

If you have missing teeth our denture consultation will form part of your Dental Health Check and you don’t need to be resigned to a life-time of wearing ill-fitting dentures that you can’t eat with and that look unnatural. Our dentist work with local laboratories to provide the highest quality solution for replacing missing teeth with dentures that have a superior fit and an exceptionally natural look.

Oral Surgery - Complex Dental Extractions

Why Treat Infected Teeth

Tooth decay is still a problem even in the developed world and can lead to serious and life threatening complications. The microorganisms can spread from just within the tooth to surrounding bone supporting the tooth and then to soft tissues in the face. Due to the nature of human tissues there are potential tracks within the skin and adjoining tissues through which the infection can spread rapidly and reach a critical state. This can be more dangerous in people with other pre-existing diseases which affect their immunity. Therefore it is prudent to have these teeth treated promptly by your dentist. In cases where they cannot be saved they should be removed promptly.

Simple Extractions

Most extractions are done under local anesthetic and involve a needle. Lot of care is taken to make this least painful. Once your gum and teeth are numbed all you should feel is pushing and pressure. Very rarely in the presence of pus or active infection the anesthetic may not work very well.

Your surgeon may decide to peel the gums if the teeth are brittle or broken down, in which case you require stitching. Stitches should dissolve and heal away without any problem.

Be on a soft diet and take pain killers like simple paracetamol or ibuprofen which are quite useful. Some people may need codeine which is available as co-codamol over the counter. Maintain your oral hygiene as normal.

Immuno- Compromised Patients

Patients who are unable to mount a normal healing response which is preceded by inflammation to any surgical procedure can be termed immuno-compromised. There are a host of conditions which can lead to this situation and can result in delayed or even non healing areas where surgery is carried out in your mouth and may require treatment in the hospital depending on the severity.

What Conditions Can Compromise Healing?

  • smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Radiotherapy to head and neck
  • Steriod treatment for various medial conditions
  • Immunosuppressive therapy for different types of cancer
  • Chermotherapy
  • Blood disorders
  • Treatment of osteoporosis

What Precautions Needs To Be Taken?

Meticulous maintenance of oral hygiene with careful consideration of the surgical alternative should be the first step. Your surgeon will discuss the options available and pros and cons of each of these options. If you should have a tooth removed or similar surgical procedure undertaken then the risks involved will be explained. Antibiotic cover for such procedures may be useful in preventing complications.

Oro Antral Communication

Many upper molar teeth are located in close relation or even within maxillary sinus cavity. This is a hollow cavity within the upper jaw and has direct communication to your nose. It is directly under the orbit(eye shell). Prior to removal the risk of causing communication to the sinus cavity will be discussed by your surgeon. Many a times they may heal without causing much symptoms. In some situations patients may experience fluid running through the nose or even pain in the cheek. The close relationship also makes one prone for dislodgement of root into the sinus cavity.

In the event of such complications your surgeon may opt to close the defect by another simple procedure. If a root fragment needs removed or the defect is large and not amenable to be treated by simple procedure then a treatment under general anesthetic may be necessary.

Periodontist - What are the benefits to specialist treatment?

 

After periodontal treatment your gums will become healthier, which will help you keep your teeth longer. The improvements will depend on how good your cleaning becomes and how severe your disease was to start with. If your gums bleed, are red or are swollen this will get better. If your gums are sore, treatment should help and if your teeth feel loose they may feel firmer after treatment. Your breath may become fresher.

We understand how important it is to a person's self-esteem to be able to smile with confidence and eat without fear of unforeseen breakages.

Sedation - Nervous Patients

One of our patients didn't go to a dentist for ten years due to his dental phobia but after seeing one of our dentists, who treated him the way we treat all our clients, he finally got over the fear of dentistry.

Be assured that you are far from alone and we have treated hundreds of people in your situation and they keep coming back! We recognise that dental phobia can be a real issue which affects your oral health over the long term. One visit to envisage dental and we promise to help you overcome the fear of the dentist. Before you even sit in the chair we discuss any anxieties you may have and take these on board when treating you – we want you to be in control.

We will offer painless dentistry with early intervention to help prevent irreversible gum disease, painful dental abscesses or extensive dental treatment. Why not pop in for a tea or coffee to meet our team and decide yourself!
