Healthy teeth is the basis of a person’s smile, their appearance, and is important for function as this allows us to enjoy good food and activities. Bleeding gums, bad breath, chipped and discoloured teeth, and tooth or jaw pain are not normal and all may be indicators of unhealthy teeth and/or gums. Our new patient special package includes a full assessment of your teeth, a clean and whitening, and at this new patient experience appointment we will formulate together with you a plan to achieve your best oral health.

Regular dental assessments are recommended every 6 months. This allows your dentist to detect any small problems as early as possible as small cavities in teeth will not cause any pain and will be otherwise undetectable.

If detected early a simple filling or a very small fix can save you from needing a root canal or tooth extraction in the future. With oral health care prevention really is the best cure.

At your regularly six monthly hygiene and maintenance appointment we will perform a comprehensive assessment of your oral health and professionally clean your teeth to effectively remove plaque build-up. This process usually takes 1 hour.

Please call (02) 9280 1321 to schedule an appointment today.
