To maintain healthy gums and teeth, we recommend you visit us every six months for an examination.
This will help us to identify any oral health issues, and we can also perform a scale and polish that will remove plaque and tartar. Fluoride treatment may also be applied to reduce your risk of decay.
To determine whether x-rays are needed at your appointment, your dentist will review your history and examine your mouth, as well as your age, risk of disease and any signs and symptoms of oral disease.
Our x-rays are suitable for children and adults, but if you’re pregnant or at all concerned, please speak to your dentist at your appointment.
Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of the teeth, which can be caused by tooth decay, wear or trauma.
We commonly make these repairs using tooth-coloured fillings, which are made from either resin or porcelain.
Simple extractions and some minor oral surgery cases (like wisdom teeth) can be treated in our clinic.
An OPG – or whole mouth x-ray – may be required to help us assess the treatment plan for your wisdom teeth, and more complex cases may be referred to a local oral surgeon.
Feeling nervous? We offer local anaesthetic with the option of ‘happy gas’ for anxious patients, so please discuss your needs with your dentist at your appointment.
