Fix my smile!
The first step to a healthy smile!
If you’ve dreamed of having a beautiful, healthy smile then now it can be yours. Routine care of your teeth is the only way to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and that you maintain that beautiful smile.
At our practice we believe that early disease detection is critical in order for our patients to maintain optimum oral health. We encourage all of our patients to have regular dental check-ups which enable us to minimise treatment and maintenance procedures.
Everyone of our patients is unique and therefore has different dental needs. We assess each patient individually to tailor a dental plan that meets their exact needs. This incorporates regular dental check ups, tooth cleaning by one of our trained hygienists and any other restorative treatments that may be required. As our patient, you are always considered our first priority.
Dental hygiene treatment includes professionally cleaning the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing. However, perhaps our most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep the teeth free of plaque. The dentist also plays an important role in treating gum disease.
Bad Breath & Gum Disease
Gum disease describes swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. There are two main forms of gum disease: gingivitis and periodontal disease. The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease and dental decay. If you see your dentist regularly this will not only help prevent bad breath but will also let the dentist look for and treat these problems.
Decay may or may not cause discomfort; even though it doesn’t hurt, the tooth is deteriorating. When cavities are small, they are much easier and less expensive to treat.
Mouth Cancer Screening
Mouth cancer is a malignant growth which can occur in any part of the mouth, including the tongue, lips and throat. Mouth cancers have a higher proportion of deaths per number of cases than breast cancer, cervical cancer or skin melanoma.
