For all aspects of your dental and oral health, we are particularly interested in your case and in your needs as an individual. We will take the appropriate time to discuss and explain treatment with you.
REGULAR CHECK UPS
"Prevention is better than cure" - so true for teeth!! We usually recommend six-monthly examinations, but will advise if it is suitable, in your case, to make this nine or twelve-monthly.
We prefer a conservative approach to tooth whitening, using a take home technique and slow-release bleaching agent. (In-chair bleaching is more harsh and expensive, and does not last as long). We make custom trays for you, which you keep for top ups in the future, making future bleaching very affordable!
If you're interested in whiter teeth, ask your dentist whether this treatment is suitable for you.
Depending on the individual case, we perform beautiful aesthetic improvements with direct and indirect techniques (composite resin and porcelain). There are often very simple procedures that can be performed to improve aesthetics. So, if there is something that bothers you about your smile, please do not hesitate to ask. Patients are always pleased with the results and often wished they'd asked sooner.
Implants require a surgical procedure, a period of healing and a restorative component. We will refer you to the appropriate specialist with the right kind of experience for your case to perform the surgery. We then work closely with them, so you can return to our rooms for the restoration (or crown) component after healing.
ENDODONTIC / ROOT CANAL THERAPY
In many cases, we will perform root canal therapy, referring cases that we deem require specialist treatment.
CROWNS, BRIDGES, DENTURES
For all fixed and removable prostheses, we work closely with a high quality, local laboratory. We do not send any work to the cheaper or overseas laboratories.
JAW PAIN / TEMPEROMANDIBULAR DYSFUNCTION SYNDROME
For these problems we take a conservative approach, using exercises and other management techniques, sometimes referring patients to trusted allied health professionals (such as osteopathic/physio/remedial massage therapists). In some cases, we recommend the construction of an occlusal splint. Ask us if you are experiencing facial pain problems.
ORAL CANCER SCREENING
At every initial and regular check up, we will always perform an examination for oral cancer lesions. Early detection can improve outlook and save lives.
