We like to take the time to discuss your current oral health with you and any treatment recommendations. Either at your first visit or at a separate appointment, we will review the radiographs, models and other findings so that you are aware exactly of the condition of your general oral health. We will also outline what we consider to be the best suitable management or alternatives ranging from general dentistry (eg. restorations, nightguard) to cosmetic dentistry (eg. crown, veneer, implant, bleaching/whitening) for you to achieve a good state of oral health.
We are here not only to manage your oral problems but also to assist you to maintain a good state of oral health by implementing a continuing care program.
For example, firstly, regular visits allow us to detect dental caries (tooth decay) early, to avoid the need for costly repairs such as root canal treatment or crowns, or in severe cases losing the tooth and needing treatments to replace one or more missing teeth (implant or bridge). Secondly, periodontitis (gum disease) is one of the most common causes of tooth loss in adults as it is a silent problem until the later stages of the disease when you are about to lose your teeth. Several studies have shown that periodontitis has a correlation with our general health and wellbeing. Thirdly, your regular visits also help us to plan a personalised management plan ranging from general dentistry to cosmetic dentistry in a timely manner. Finally, we may discuss and demonstrate the best home oral care routine to give you those crucial long term benefits. We understand how important it is to develop the perfect combination of our professional care and your home oral care.
We endeavor to assist patients who require urgent dental care as quickly as possible. We set aside one or two appointment sessions for emergency patients. You will be able to be seen on the same day or next day.
