What Services Are Available?

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 paramount, and the best way to maintain optimal dental health is by visiting us regularly. Our team of clinicians has a wealth of experience, offering cosmetic services and advanced dental care services to make comprehensive dental care convenient for you.

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. We want to get you healthy and then keep you there… for life. Visiting your dental hygienist 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 treat in a state of health rather than disease, maintaining overall wellbeing in the long term.

Emergency Dentistry

In cases 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

Restorative Treatment

  • Tooth-coloured fillings
  • Porcelain or gold crowns and bridges
  • Porcelain onlays, inlays or overlays
  • Dental implants

We’ve selected the most advanced and trusted techniques, including computer assisted smile design, as well as quality, colour-matched filling materials to restore your beautiful smile and your confidence. Our high-tech restorative techniques can repair broken, chipped teeth or replace older fillings, improving the colour, shape, contour and appearance of your smile.

Root Canal Therapy (RCT)

Root canal therapy 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 RCT is completed, when the tooth is restored with a filling or a crown, when more protection is required, it will usually function just like all your other teeth.

Tooth Extractions

We strive to save as many teeth as possible with our wide range of dental treatments. Unfortunately, in some cases, despite all best efforts, a tooth is beyond repair and a tooth extraction is necessary. In most cases this is due to severe damage, often when a tooth is split or there is insufficient tooth structure, advanced gum disease or other conditions. In these cases teeth are removed with the utmost care and gentle approach which is essential to prevent damage to the adjacent teeth and to preserve the surrounding bone to make it easier to replace the tooth with an implant. It is this approach which differentiates Collins Dental Image dentists from other practices.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

An OPG X-ray (wide panoramic view) is used to make a comprehensive assessment of your wisdom teeth. 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.

On assessment, your dentist will determine which option is right for you, and whether or not a referral to an oral surgeon is the best approach to treatment.
