Checkups and Cleans

Toothpaste and toothbrushWhile it’s essential to brush and floss your teeth each day getting preventative care such as checkups and cleans can go a long way towards keeping your smile healthy. During this appointment your dentist will look for early signs of decay, oral cancer, gum disease and other issues, as well as eliminate the calculus that you can’t remove with a toothbrush. We also will polish your teeth and provide advice about oral hygiene habits.

Dentures

We offer full dentures, partial dentures and implant-supported dentures. The process includes taking an impression of your teeth and measuring your jaw to customise your denture. We send the moulds and measurements to a laboratory to create a comfortable device that’s suited to you.

Whether you have wisdom teeth that are erupting or a tooth that’s weakened, an extraction may be in order. We’ll assess your oral health to determine the best way to perform the extraction. X-rays will provide a deeper look; the X-rays we take are low-radiation and are essential in helping us to understand your situation. You will be sufficiently numbed, and we won’t proceed until we are certain that you can’t feel a thing. A simple extraction takes just 20-30 minutes.

Fillings

If you have a tooth that’s been damaged by decay, we offer composite fillings to close any space that bacteria may have entered. The fillings are safe as they don’t contain mercury, are long-lasting and can be colour-matched to your teeth.

Fissure Sealants

These thin plastic coverings can help to prevent tooth decay. They are most commonly used in kids’ teeth. They are “painted” on to each tooth. Once they dry and harden they create a protective bond on the surface of the tooth.

Mouth Guards

Whether you play contact sports or participate in recreational activities that may leave you susceptible to injuring your mouth, we offer mouth guards. These custom-fitted oral appliances are made of a sturdy material to protect your teeth and gums.[/one_half_last]

Clenching or grinding your teeth, a habit that often occurs during sleep, can damage your teeth. The clinical name for the habit is bruxism, and it can cause jaw pain, headaches, earaches and cracked teeth. We can create a customised night guard that you can wear that will prevent clenching and grinding while you sleep.

If you have gum disease, we provide root planing, an effective treatment that can help you enjoy better oral health. The first step is gently removing the calculus and plaque on the surface of the tooth root and inside of the periodontal pocket. Rest assured that you’ll be adequately numbed and won’t feel a thing. The procedure takes about 60-90 minutes to complete. You may be prescribed antibiotics, and we’ll advise you on mouthwash rinses and other home care.

When a tooth root becomes infected, a root canal is performed to relieve pain that’s caused by an infection. The primary benefit of the procedure is it can allow you to avoid extraction. We pride ourselves on pain-free dentistry. The area will be cleaned, and the roots will be filled with a material to prevent any other bacteria from getting in. Depending on the severity of the infection, two visits may be required to complete the root canal. The final step is to place a crown over the tooth to protect it against instability or weakening.
