Our goal is to provide gentle dental care to help you keep your teeth and mouth healthy for life. Our focus is on prevention rather than treatment.
We carry out a thorough examination with any necessary dental x rays for every person in our care. We will prioritise your treatment as follows:
Relief of pain. Treatment of swelling, bleeding or trauma.
FULL CASE ASSESSMENT:
A thorough examination of your mouth and teeth with any necessary x rays, a medial history questionnaire and an oral cancer screening.
Our aim is to carefully assess your dental health and identify any dental diseases, eg, decay, periodontal disease, tooth wear, or risk factors, eg, smoking, diabetes, all of which will affect your ability to keep your teeth for life.
Advice and treatment from our dentists and hygienists to control or eliminate any dental diseases identified in your examination. This is the key to a life time of full dental health.
We will discuss with you what needs to be done to improve your dental health. This includes a wide range of possible dental treatments such as, fillings, root treatments, periodontal (gum) treatment with your dentist or hygienist, crowns, etc.
Regular follow up care with your dentist and hygienist to help you maintain your dental health.
ENHANCEMENT / LONG TERM TREATMENT:
Ideally having completed the above steps we may discuss a long term plan with you including ways to improve your smile with cosmetic treatments or crowning heavily filled or root treated teeth to increase their longevity.
We firmly believe that all dental treatment should be pain free and we are confident that we can make your visits as comfortable as possible.
