Many Services to Keep Your Smile Healthy

General dentistry encompasses everything from preventative maintenance cleaning to tooth-coloured fillings, root canal therapy, wisdom tooth removal and more. Looking after your teeth is vital to preserve your natural smile for a lifetime and the best way to maintain optimal dental health is by visiting us regularly. Our team of clinicians has a wealth of experience in general dentistry, as well as a range of cosmetic and restorative services to make comprehensive dental care convenient for you.

We offer the following to help you achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile:

Dental Examination and Oral Hygiene

The crucial first step is a routine examination with one of our experienced dentists, coupled with a preventative maintenance appointment with one of our skilled dental hygienists/oral health therapists. We want to get you healthy and then keep you there … for life.

Visiting our oral health and hygiene team regularly is strongly recommended, as examining the oral tissues routinely gives us the opportunity to detect any abnormalities that may require further treatment or more rigorous monitoring. Our aim is to keep you in a state of health rather than treating disease, maintaining overall wellbeing in the long term.

Maintain Your Beautiful Smile With Preventative Maintenance

Beyond just achieving a fresh and clean feeling, a dental checkup at our practice encompasses a comprehensive examination aimed at detecting gum disease and tooth decay. Our goal is to catch any issues early on before they escalate into more serious or irreversible conditions. Prompt intervention is key if your oral health is starting to decline.

Keep Your Child’s Smile Bright With Children’s Dentistry

At our practice, we foster a warm, friendly and nurturing atmosphere for your child’s dental care needs. Recognising the unique requirements of children’s dental health, our team prioritises creating enjoyable and positive experiences for our young patients.

We aim to familiarise children with the dental environment and instill in them the importance of visiting our practice for their overall wellbeing.

Access Emergency Dentistry When You Need It

In case of a dental emergency, we are here for you! We offer a range of solutions for various situations, including:

  • Toothache
  • Dental trauma
  • Swelling
  • Chipped or dislodged restorations (fillings)
  • Bleeding from the gums
  • Dislocation of the jaw joint
  • And more

Restore Your Teeth With Fillings

Man looking in mirrorWhile nobody likes to hear that they have a cavity, we use white or tooth-coloured fillings to address damaged teeth, restoring their structure, function and lost strength. This treatment effectively seals the inner portion of the tooth, preventing bacteria from infiltrating and causing further decay.

Safeguard Your Smile With Mouthguards

Protecting your teeth during physical activities is paramount, especially when engaging in sports that pose a risk of physical trauma. Whether it’s slips, falls, impacts or accidents, the consequences can have long-lasting effects on your or your child’s smile. We offer mouthguards tailored to shield your teeth with a comfortable custom-fit, significantly reducing the likelihood of major dental interventions such as crowns, implants or root canal treatments.

Ensure Your Teeth Stay Healthy With Preventative Dentistry

Preventative dentistry revolves around averting disease before it manifests and addressing issues at an early stage when they are more manageable. We emphasise the importance of addressing the root causes of gum disease and tooth decay through a thorough examination and patient education. By equipping you with the knowledge to maintain optimal oral health, we strive to ensure that your teeth remain healthy for life.

Root Canal Therapy (RCT)

Root canal treatment can save a compromised tooth in the event of infection or inflammation. Painful and potentially dangerous if left untreated, an infected tooth can be saved by RCT. After treatment is completed, when the tooth is restored with a filling or a crown – if more protection is required – it will usually function just like all your other teeth.

Experience a Comfortable Extraction

Despite our efforts to preserve teeth through a variety of dental treatments, there are instances where a tooth extraction becomes unavoidable. This procedure becomes necessary when a tooth is severely damaged beyond repair, often due to factors such as splitting, inadequate remaining tooth structure, advanced gum disease or other underlying conditions. In such cases, our team conducts tooth extractions with meticulous care and a gentle approach to ensure your comfort and also maintain the surrounding bone to enable the potential placement of an implant to replace the tooth which is being removed.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

When wisdom teeth become impacted due to anatomy or insufficient space, they may develop at an angle or may be unable to erupt into their ideal position. At times, wisdom teeth can cause discomfort or be difficult to keep clean and may be a risk to your oral health due to the resultant infection from retained bacteria or food.

We offer wisdom teeth removal at the practice using local anaesthesia versus undergoing general anaesthesia in a hospital. This not only saves time and the extra expenses of a hospital stay but also mitigates the risks and downtime linked with general anaesthesia.

TMJ/Teeth Grinding Solutions

Addressing the root causes of TMJ/TMD not only safeguards your dental health but also alleviates recurring headaches, jaw discomfort, stiffness and jaw joint clicking or locking.

For minor issues related to TMJ/TMD, we can potentially address them by adjusting the shape of a tooth, enhancing the alignment of your bite and alleviating strain on the jaw joint. In cases of more pronounced bite irregularities, a customised occlusal splint or nightguard can provide a stable surface for your teeth to bite against, effectively reducing discomfort and promoting proper alignment.

Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Solutions

Sleep apnoea, characterised by obstructed breathing or breathing pauses during sleep, poses significant health risks. We take pride in assisting patients of all ages in enhancing their nocturnal breathing patterns and overall sleep quality, fostering a healthier and more fulfilling life.
