We recommend dental check-ups and cleans every 6 months. This ensures good oral health is maintained and helps detect any signs of tooth decay and gum problems. Even oral cancer may be identified and successfully treated with early intervention. Dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease are preventable.
Oral hygiene and diet plays the most important role in preventing dental problems. We recommend brushing and flossing twice a day. This is highly effective and should form part of your regular oral hygiene routine. It is also advisable to avoid excess sugar and acid intake (e.g. sports drinks, soft drinks, chocolate etc.).
Dental exams, scale, fluoride, digital x-rays, custom mouth guards and occlusal splints are just some of the ways we can provide diagnostic and preventative care in our surgery.
Restorative dentistry involves repairing or restoring teeth damaged by cavities and trauma. We provide tooth-coloured fillings, inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges and implants as part of our restorative treatments.
Cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance (shape, size, and colour) of your teeth. If you are unhappy with your teeth, it may also help improve your overall smile and increase your self-esteem so you can always feel your best. We provide smile makeovers which include procedures such as composite and porcelain veneers, crowns, teeth-whitening and dental implants if needed.
Root canal treatments may be required for treating the diseased tooth nerve (dental pulp). A damaged or infected nerve in a tooth can lead to severe pain and may cause an abscess. In these cases, the infected nerve has to be removed from the tooth, the nerve canal has to be cleaned and filled with root canal filling. We provide root canal treatments for anterior and posterior teeth.
It is important to us that your children feel comfortable at the dentist. We recommend bringing them with you to us as young as possible to help build their trust and confidence. Many infants have their first dental visit with us on their parent’s lap. These early childhood visits are the best way to ensure they have excellent oral health in the future. For children, we can provide dental exams, cleans, fluoride, x-rays, fissure sealants, custom mouth guards, pulpotomies and stainless-steel crowns.
Prosthetic treatment involves replacing lost teeth. We construct partial (acrylic and metal) and full dentures, immediate dentures, relines and repairs. We also provide implant-retained dentures.
Teeth may sometimes need to be removed due to a number of reasons such as decay, gum disease, for orthodontic treatment or when impacted (wisdom teeth). Our dentists have considerable experience with dental extractions and minor oral surgery procedures. We do a number of wisdom tooth removals and surgical extractions, however in complex cases we may refer you to a specialist oral surgeon.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide field ranging from simple whitening of teeth and direct veneers to extensive crown and bridge work.People are often concerned with the colour of their teeth.
Lifestyle and the ageing process tend to affect the colour of our teeth.Drinking coffee, tea, red wine, and smoking all contribute to teeth discoloration.
Participating in contact sports without a mouth guard can have serious consequences.
Wearing mouth guards not only protects the teeth from injury, it can lesson the impact of a blow to the jaws and reduce the potential for more serious injuries such as concussion and facial fractures.
We strive to make your dental experience with us as pleasant as possible. We can treat anxious children and adults under Happy Gas ( Relative analgesia) on site as well as under General Anaesthesia in private hospitals if required.
Under the NSW Oral Health Fee For Service Scheme (OHFFSS), eligible patients can be issued with a voucher from NSW Oral Health to receive care from a private dentist. The vouchers can be issued for emergency care, general dental care and dentures.
Most of our dentists accept these vouchers and can provide you with the relevant treatment. When booking your appointment, please ensure that the dentist you are booking with accepts these vouchers.
We bulk-bill eligible children under the CDBS. The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged from 2-17 years that provides up to $1000 in benefits to the child for basic dental services that is capped over 2 consecutive calendar years.
