Both the teeth and gums require regular general care in order to enjoy a fabulous smile. If you were born with crooked teeth, a gap, or sensitive teeth, then you may require more frequent visits than just once a year. Here at local dentist Australia, we can help you obtain that white, bright, healthy smile you’ve always dreamed of.
We offer a wide range of services including:
- Root canal treatments
- Bridges and crowns
- Periodontal treatment
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Ultrasonic cleaning
- Partials and dentures
- Oral health exams
- Cavity filling
Each new patient will receive a thorough oral exam and assessment. Our general dentist will answer any of your questions, discuss your needs and concerns, make recommendations, and advise you on treatment options.
Our team of qualified staff will be able to perform even the most challenging cleanings comfortably and thoroughly using ultrasonic cleaning instruments. Using a type of gentle vibration known as cavitation, the cleaning will remove heavy deposits, which will allow us to minimize the need for uncomfortable scraping. This type of cleaning will enhance tooth and gum health, so your teeth will feel cleaner than they ever have before, and you’ll also enjoy fresher breath.
Tooth Pain Relief
During your routine exam, x-rays will be taken in order to adequately assess the condition of your teeth. If you’ve been experiencing ongoing tooth pain, you may need cavities filled, a tooth extraction, or a root canal if the dentist has determined that your tooth is worth saving. Our dentist’s goal is to get you out of pain as soon as possible, which is why some procedures are available for same day treatment.
In order to fill a cavity, the dentist must first remove the tooth decay, then fill the area. A filling is used to repair broken or cracked teeth that have been worn down.
Before the work begins, the dentist will give you a local anesthetic, numbing the area around the tooth. Next, a drill will be used to remove the decayed portion of the tooth. Once all of the decay is removed the filling material will be applied in layers. Our dentistry offers a wide range of filling materials to choose from, ranging from silver amalgam, porcelain, and gold, to composite resin fillings.
A dentist will only recommend a tooth extraction if they are unable to save a tooth via a root canal or cavity filling. Extractions are painful, they take a longer healing time compared to other dental treatments, and they can make it difficult to eat or make you ashamed of your smile. Our team of qualified staff excels at gentle tooth extraction procedures. We also offer the best follow up care and dental restoration methods.
In the event that several of your teeth must be extracted, our dentist will sit down with you and recommend a partial or full denture. This way, the dentist can have the denture designed and prepared for the day of your extractions, so you can begin wearing it immediately after the procedure.
Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Did you know that a beautiful smile can make you look younger and healthier? We can improve your smile by using mercury-free fillings, and state of the art whitening methods to instantly give you a brighter smile. We can also correct flaws and chips using composite bonding or give your smile a total makeover using veneers. This type of transformation can really be life-changing.
Bridges and Crowns
There are many materials and techniques we use to fabricate bridges and crowns. Their longevity and beauty will depend on choosing the right technique and using only the finest craftsmanship. Our dentist stays current with the latest techniques and materials used and can recommend the right type that will best suit your budget and your need for healthy, strong, incredible looking teeth.
Partials and Dentures
Our dentists are also highly experienced when it comes to natural restorations, comfortable fitting partials and dentures, and beautiful reconstructions. Our partials and dentures can also be designed to attach to dental implants for additional support and stability.
Our root canal procedures are designed to remove the pulp of the tooth, which consists of thread-like, small tissue found in the tooth’s center. Once the dead, diseased, or damaged pulp is removed, the remaining space is shaped, cleaned, and filled. Our dental care team is very experienced in emergency root canal procedures.
The bone and gum tissue are considered the foundation of a healthy smile. We offer treatments designed to stop damage caused by periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is actually the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Our gum treatments will include root planning, soft tissue management, and gingival curettage. We can also provide services including periodontal surgery using electrosurgery that can improve the appearance of your smile.
If you’ve always dreamed of a beautiful, healthy, white smile, then teeth whitening can be a great option for you. Over time, your teeth can turn yellow as a result of drinking cola, tea, coffee, or smoking, causing you to look older than you really are. Whatever the reason you want to brighten your smile, our tooth bleaching services can remove one to two layers of discoloration per treatment.
This type of treatment usually has a ninety percent success rate with our patients.
Our dentist will choose the right type of bleaching system that will provide you with the best results. Some systems recommend treatment that consists of two to four hours daily, with a total treatment time of six weeks. Other systems recommend bleaching at night as you’re sleeping. This type of system has a much shorter treatment time of two weeks.
