General dental care

General Dental Care

General dental care focuses on the overall health your teeth and supporting structures including the gums, tongue, palate, throat, lips, jaws and temporomandibular joints (jaw joint). It incorporates a patient’s medical health and any implication(s) of their health, including medications, on their teeth. Emergency treatment and trauma management fall within the scope of general dental care. General dental care is also that part of dentistry that links all other facets of dentistry together in formulating an overall treatment plan, taking into consideration the requirements of each of those facets.

Cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental treatment that improves the appearance of the teeth, gums or smile, with or without an improvement in function. The patient’s desires and expectations are used to determine the most appropriate treatment(s) to obtain a smile/appearance that the patient will enjoy and be confident with for many years. The treatment complexity can be as minimal as cosmetic fillings and tooth whitening, or as extensive as crowns, veneers, bridges, implants and gum lifting or a combination of all of these treatments.

Cosmetic dentistry

Crowns And Bridges

Crowns (or ‘caps’) are full coverage restorations that are cemented over a prepared tooth. Whilst a bridge is multiple crowns that are joined in order to span across a missing tooth space. They can strengthen, protect, restore function and improve the cosmetics of a tooth or teeth. The main types of crowns and bridges are gold alloy, porcelain fused-to-metal and full porcelain crowns. Each has their advantages and disadvantages thus a determination on which type to use is made depending on the case requirements.

Teeth whitening


Veneers are similar to crowns but only partially cover the teeth, usually the front and biting edge surfaces. They primarily improve the appearance of the teeth and enhance a smile. They can be directly bonded to the teeth in a single visit using composite resin, or more commonly indirectly bonded over multiple visits using thin porcelain.

General dental care


An exciting advancement in dentistry over the past 20 years has been the ability to replace missing teeth with titanium supported crowns. The procedure involves surgically placing a titanium implant is in the jaw bone which then becomes integrated to the jaw over a few months. A porcelain crown can then be fabricated and attached to the titanium implant using a customized attachment. The main advantage of implants is that they do not require adjacent teeth to support them, as is the case with bridges and dentures. Implants can also be used to support full dentures, therefore reducing the problem of retention associated with many full dentures.

Preventive dentistry

Preventive dentistry

One of the most important aspects of dentistry is prevention: prevention of oral diseases and prevention of disease progression are considered a fundamental service in our practice. We advocate regular dental check-ups to examine the teeth and supporting structures for early signs of disease. As part of these check-ups we take X-rays of the teeth at regular intervals: usually every 2 years depending on a patient’s dental risks and previous disease levels. These are a valuable diagnostic tool to diagnose many problems before they become serious. If there are signs present, we necessary action or give appropriate advice in order to prevent the disease progressing to a stage that would require extensive, invasive and costly treatment. In cases where disease or problems have already begun, early intervention is important to reduce the severity of the problem, resulting in a more favourable prognosis.

Periodontal treatment


Periodontics is the management and treatment of problems associated with the gums and supporting ligament and bone around teeth. The most periodontal problems are gingivitis: inflammation of the gums, and periodontitis: infection and inflammation of the gums, ligament and bone around the teeth. They are essentially caused by plaque and calculus(calcified plaque) attached to teeth at or below the gum-line. Over time the gums become inflamed which is seen as red and swollen gums that bleed when you brush or floss your teeth. If this is left untreated the inflammation within the gums deepens and intensifies destroying the ligament and bone that support the teeth. The end result of this periodontitis is pain, loose teeth and in many cases tooth loss. Regular professional removal of this plaque and calculus via dental scaling and cleaning or root planing, can limit the infection and maintain healthy gums around the teeth. We recommend dental scale and cleans every 6-9 months.

Cosmetic dentistry

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment (endodontics) is that part of dentistry associated with treating diseases of the dental pulp. The pulp is contained within the tooth and has within it the tooth nerve. The pulp and nerve can become damaged or infected if decay gets too deep into a tooth, or if the tooth sustains a traumatic injury such as a knock or crack. The injured/infected nerve causes considerable pain and may result in an abscess forming beneath the tooth within the jaw bone. In order alleviate the pain and retain teeth with infected nerves, endodontic treatment is necessary. This involves locating, cleaning and disinfecting the nerve canals within the tooth, filling them with a biologically inert material and then restoring the tooth’s function and appearance.

Teeth whitening

Teeth Whitening

If you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth it is now possible to perform tooth whitening in order to lighten and improve the appearance of the teeth. The recent advances in the whitening agents mean that the whitening process is safe, effective, long-lasting and affordable. You can choose between in-office whitening using the Zoom® system for an immediate result or the at home whitening system for a more gradual whitening process. The at home system allows you to have control over the amount of whitening and is a preferred option with patients with sensitive teeth.

Minor oral surgery

Minor Oral Surgery

Minor oral surgery focuses primarily on dental extractions and gum alternations. We offer routine extractions including many wisdom teeth cases and gingivectomies(gum surgery). In cases where wisdom teeth are impacted we refer our patients to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for the extractions. These cases have inherent risks associated with nerve damage and it is our belief that the most qualified person to extract these teeth and minimize the risks, is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Childrens Dental Care

Children’s Dentistry

Children’s dentistry is a uniquely important part of dentistry in that, if a good dental relationship is established early in a child’s life, the foundation has been set for that child to have healthy teeth for life. If good habits are instilled early then the risks for most dental problems are significantly reduced and the likelihood of requiring extensive treatment is reduced dramatically. We emphasize an initial child examination at 1-2 years of age as teeth begin to erupt at around 6 months of age and once they enter the mouth they are vulnerable. We explain to parents ways to effectively clean baby’s, toddler’s and children’s teeth and discuss the most common dental problems in childhood along with easy preventative tips. The teeth, mouth and face also change dramatically during childhood. These changes are monitored during each check-up and if issues arise, appropriate intervention can be offered to parents.

Pregnancy and infant dental care

Pregnancy Dentistry

Pregnancy dentistry encompasses aspects of dentistry relating to both mother and child. The mother’s mouth and teeth can be affected by pregnancy but if advice and early intervention are in place, the effects can be limited. The most important of these is the adverse effects morning sickness has on tooth enamel. We also understand the specific needs of pregnant patients with respect to nausea and appointment times, and the discomfort experienced with prolonged periods of being reclined. We allow for these needs to make any dental appointments as comfortable as possible. The timing of any necessary or emergency procedures is also important for the health of the unborn baby. Also the deciduous teeth (milk teeth) and some permanent adult teeth of the baby are also forming during pregnancy and at birth. Once again, with the appropriate dental advice, any adverse affects on the baby’s health and forming teeth can be minimized. We can discuss methods to ensure your baby is not exposed to any unnecessary medical and/or dental risk.

Dental Services

Private Health Insurance

We welcome patients with any health fund cover and will endeavour to assist them with any health fund claiming concerns as much as practical.

Some health funds have Preferred Provider Schemes whereby the ‘preferred provider’ dentist joins the scheme and agrees to abide by health fund rules regarding treatment and fees. In return the health fund places the dentist on their list of ‘Preferred Providers’ and directs patients to the dentist.

Our commitment to you is to provide best practice dental treatment. We believe that being a preferred provider would restrict our independence and limit our ability to provide best practice dentistry. We value our independence and choose not to be a preferred provider for any health fund. Please feel free to talk to us about your oral health care, our fees and your health fund.
