Lifestyle & Cosmetic Treatments
We understand how important it is for children to have good experiences at the dentist. We can see children from as soon as they get their first tooth if they are experiencing a problem, however, most parents start bringing their kids in from between 3 and 4 years of age. This allows them to become familiar with the surroundings and the process. If they need any treatment by the time they are 5 or 6, they will have had several positive visits and can often be treated with minimal intervention and without the need for local anaesthetic.
It is very sad that Dental Decay is the number one reason that children get General Anaesthetics. Mostly, it is completely preventable! We will help reinforce good oral hygiene habits and a balanced diet to help keep your child smiling.
Brush morning and last thing before bed at night
Adults should help with brushing until 10 years of age
Avoid leaving your baby/child sipping on milk/sugary drinks
Limit "sometimes food" like soft drinks and sugary snacks
Encourage a balanced diet - plenty of fresh vegetables!
Speak positively about dental visits. Avoid horror stories and speaking of the "needle". Dental visits are fun these days!
Don't rinse your mouth out with water after you brush - You are washing away all the good stuff!!!
Brushing twice a day, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist! Simple, right?
Sometimes life gets in the way. That is why we pre-appoint our patients 6-12 months in advance, and we will remind you closer the time when your appointment is due.
This way 2 years doesn't fly by, and you are boarding a flight to the holiday of your.... nightmares with dental pain.
We can help keep your dental costs consistently low with regular check ups and professional cleans. Nobody likes nasty surprises that can run into the thousands to treat.
Full exam, clean & bitewing x-rays and other special tests for a flat fee of $260 - less any dental health cover you have.
We are currently accepting new patients, however we have begun limiting this. Once we have opened our second sister clinic in Broulee we will be able to accommodate many more new patients!
We are very excited with some new technology we have purchased recently. Two of the coolest things in dentistry! The newest generation of CEREC same day crown technology - this includes a digital scanner (no more impressions!), a milling unit and a furnace. This means we can manufacture our own crowns, bridges & implant crowns in house, start to finish in less than 2 hours! There is about 40-60minutes in the middle of the appointment where you can watch us scan, digitally design, mill and fire your crown. Really incredible technology that is a game changer for our patients.
Our team of dentists, auxiliaries and referral specialists provide all necessary treatments to keep your mouth feeling and looking great. We believe in doing it right the first time. We stand over the quality of our work. This means when we do something it's done to the best of our ability, and designed to last. It's why we warranty any dentistry we do. The exception being any temporary fillings or other semi-permanent treatments. We are also available to offer second opinions.
We are commonly asked for costs of wisdom teeth extractions. Usually the cost is about $1600 for 4 wisdom tooth extractions removed under local anaesthetic.
Lifestyle & Cosmetic Treatments
Lifestyle Treatments allow you to free yourself from a dental issue that is holding you back - whether the issue is social, emotional or comfort based. They are lots of fun for us to do because they can have such wonderful impacts on the quality of people's lives!
We are all different. We realise that. When we sit down and have a chat about what your specific wants and issues are, we can discuss the options that fall into your budget. People are often surprised by how many options are available to them, thanks to modern techniques and advancements in dental materials. Especially now we can do some much of the design and manufacture of crowns and veneers in house using our state of the art Cerec Digital Technology.
Frequently the types of smile improvements we do involve Dental Implants to replace lost teeth and Crowns or Veneers to create beautiful natural looking smiles. Most of the patients we do this work for are over 60 years old and looking to rejuvenate their smile and restore function. Our online booking platform holds specific 'Smile Design' appointments - click on the link below or call now to reserve a time. These types of treatment plans can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to $40,000-50,000 for full mouth rehabilitations.
