How often should I schedule an appointment with my dentist?
The answer to this question will depend on the general health of your teeth and gums. The recommended standard frequency is twice a year for routine check-ups and cleanings. In cases where there’s some kind of infection, your dentist will determine how often your visits should be and will establish an action plan for your treatment.
Do you have emergency services?
Yes we do. If you need urgent attention please call us at 08 8981 343 and we’ll schedule your appointment for as soon as possible to make sure you receive the attention and care you need.
What is the difference between bleaching and whitening?
Both procedures focus on improving the appearance of your teeth by removing all discolouration. There are some key differences between both procedures - a whitening process restores the natural colour of your teeth by removing stains from their surface. While tooth bleaching refers to the whitening of the teeth beyond their natural colour. The natural ingredients used in this process are hydrogen peroxide and carbide peroxide.
Are dental implants the best option for missing teeth?
Dental implants are one of the best alternatives for missing teeth and in most cases, they are the option most often recommended by dentists. However, there are some cases where other options might be more suitable. Patients who suffer from chronic diseases, are smokers or have had radiation therapy in the neck or head, might need a closer evaluation to decide if implants are appropriate.
Are braces recommended for children?
There is no specific age requirement for a person to get orthodontic treatment. However, in the case of kids the minimum recommended age is 7, which is when their permanent teeth start coming in. They are not suitable for everyone.
