Check-ups, x-rays and teeth cleaning
It is recommended that you should visit our Melbourne dentist at least every 6 months as they help to keep your teeth and gums in good health. At the check-up, our dental professionals will check for cavities, plague and tartar. In certain cases, an X-ray may be needed. We will then use our special tools for the dental cleaning so that you can confidently leave with a white, brighter smile!
Fillings, extractions and root canal treatment
It is common for young adults to develop cavities and weak spots on their newly-formed adult teeth. Regardless of the cause, the issue is one that can be addressed by fillings. It helps to effectively prevent any dental problems in the future. However, continued dental maintenance and daily dental care is still required to preserve the teeth and prevent cavities. With our affordable dental fees, you can rest assured that you won’t be burning a hole in your pocket to get the help that you need.
Extractions are a relatively simple procedure that can be done quickly and safely. Our Melbourne dentist will first work with you to determine if removing a tooth is the best solution for you. As intimidating an extraction may seem, there are still benefits to it. A tooth extraction can not only prevent the spread of tooth decay and infection, it can also help to relieve pain and help you have a more functional smile. After the procedure is complete, you will be able to return to your routine in no time.
Root canal treatments include replacing a tooth’s damaged or infected pulp with a filling. The procedure includes removing the decay and infection and restoring it. We will take the necessary measures to ensure that no bacteria will leak back into the tooth. Once the treatment is complete, you can expect a functional tooth that will last for a very long time.
Dentures are false teeth that are created to replace missing teeth; helping people to eat and speak easier. It also helps to boost confidence if you are conscious about the way you look. They are specially made to fit your mouth and may feel strange at first. Most patients will take some time to get used to the way they feel. They require daily maintenance and follow-up appointments so that your dentist can make adjustments. A check-up with our Melbourne dentist at least once a year is strongly recommended.
Advice about good oral health
For a healthy smile, it is important to practice good oral hygiene every day; whether it’s brushing after meals, using a mouth wash and flossing, it is vital that you keep the bacteria from reproducing in your mouth. Our experts will be able to educate you regarding the dental routines tailored to your needs.
Whether it’s an emergency or a routine check-up, we focus on your long-term health goals, as well as keeping your visits as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. If you are a sensitive patient, let our staff know and we will assist accordingly.
