Check-Up and Clean
A check-up involves a thorough evaluation of your current dentition, mouth and associated structures. A clean involves removing tartar build-up and extrinsic staining of teeth.
A filling involves restoring a decayed or chipped tooth back to its normal shape and function. Materials used for fillings include composite resin, glass ionomers, amalgam, gold and porcelain.
We understand that the appearance of a patient’s teeth can affect their smile and confidence. A combination of personal and lifestyle factors can result in irregularities, stains, cracks or blemishes of teeth. We offer a variety of treatments to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile including veneers, crowns, dental implants, teeth whitening and orthodontics.
Implants & Missing Teeth
When teeth are severely affected by decay, gum disease, wear or trauma, an extraction may be the best treatment option. To replace missing teeth, we offer various treatments including implants, bridges and dentures.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth usually push through the gum in a person’s late teens to twenties. While many wisdom teeth may not cause any trouble, it is important for us to monitor them to avoid any potential problems including infection, crowding, pain or the formation of a cyst.
We understand many people fear the dentist and dental treatment, and subsequently avoid going. If you experience anxiety with dental treatment we encourage you to come by and become acquainted with our team and treatment philosophy. We don’t believe in placing teeth at the centre of our attention – we practice on getting to know our patients – and each patient comes with a complex personal, medical and dental history.
Obstructive sleep apnoea can cause interruptions (apnoea) to breathing many times during sleep. We offer screening for obstructive sleep apnoea and can provide dental devices to prevent the airways from collapsing during sleep.
Jaw Clicking or Pain
Orofacial pain is general pain felt in the mouth, jaws, face, sides of the head, ears or behind the eyes. This also includes pain in teeth that are not decayed or in poor form. We can provide a full oral and facial examination to help diagnose and treat you according to your symptoms.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is one of the treatment options when a tooth has very deep decay, an exposed nerve or severe and irreversible tooth pain. It involves removing the nerve within the tooth because it has an infection or is inflamed.
Developing good dental hygiene habits is essential to your child’s oral health. It is best to monitor your child’s oral health as soon as possible to prevent, detect and treat potential problems before they become serious. Other children’s services we offer include tongue/lip tie assessments, fissure sealants, mouthguards, space maintainers and orthodontics.
Braces or Invisalign
There are many reasons why our patients discuss straightening their teeth with the use of braces or Invisalign. Orthodontics is the practice of straightening out crowding in teeth and can improve the way you chew your food, clean your teeth, bite, smile and your overall self-esteem.
