OUR DENTAL SERVICES
Our South Melbourne dental clinic is fully equipped to conduct examinations, teeth cleaning, X-rays, fillings, extractions, surgical procedures, dentures and dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, and more.
General Dental Examinations
We recommend that you visit our South Melbourne dental clinic at least every 6 months to help maintain healthy teeth and gums, and prevent the need for major dental work in future. During your general check-up, our friendly dentists will ask if you have any specific concerns, then they will examine the current condition of your teeth and gums. The dentist may request that an X-ray be taken during your check-up for a closer look. We will then professionally clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, ensuring you leave with a bright and healthy smile.
Fillings and Extractions
If your dentist finds any cavities or decay during your check-up, they may recommend fillings to repair the tooth. Fillings help to restore the damaged tooth back to its normal shape and function, and prevent any further decay.
During this procedure, our South Melbourne dentists will gently remove the decay, clean the affected area, and then fill the cavity with the filling material.
In more serious cases, such as significant decay or damage, cracks, poor positioning or gum disease, a tooth may need to be extracted. An extraction is a relatively simple procedure that can be done under local anaesthetic while in the dental chair. While extractions may seem daunting, you can rest assured the dentists at our South Melbourne dental clinic are highly experienced and will ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible for you.
Root Canal Treatment
When the nerve of a tooth has been damaged by trauma or tooth decay, root canal treatment is required to save the tooth rather than extracting it. The root canal procedure involves removing the inflamed or infected nerve or dental pulp of the tooth, cleaning and then filling the canal. After the treatment is complete, your tooth will be restored to full health and function for many years to come. Our South Melbourne dentists understand that root canal therapy is an intimidating procedure, and will do everything they can to help ease your nerves or concerns when discussing your treatment options.
If you have lost or are missing teeth, dentures not only give you more confidence in the way you look, but can also help restore proper oral function, improve eating and speaking, and support your facial structure. Depending on your individual needs, our South Melbourne dental clinic offers full or partial dentures. Our South Melbourne dentists recommend yearly check-ups for anyone with dentures to ensure your oral health and dentures are well maintained.
At Star Health’s South Melbourne dental clinic, we understand how important your teeth are to your overall wellbeing, and will do our best to fit you in with our dentists whenever accidents, injury, or urgent issues occur. Dental emergencies can include extreme toothaches, a tooth being knocked out, chipped or broken, and denture repairs.

At Star Health, we believe in encouraging and educating our patients about the importance of good oral health care. Our friendly South Melbourne dentists can provide you with oral health advice and an ongoing dental care routine tailored to suit your personal needs.
