We will take care of the majority of your dental requirements. We provide sound, logical advice based on your individual needs. For those more challenging cases, we only work with Sydney’s leading dental and medical specialists, so you can be assured you are getting the best possible care at all times.
Prevention is the cornerstone of any reputable dental practice. Many potential dental problems can be totally prevented or eliminated, especially if detected early. By offering advice in areas that can affect dental health such as home care, diet and lifestyle, we can assist you in maintaining your mouth and smile in the best possible condition.
With advances in materials and techniques, we can repair decayed, chipped or broken teeth more quickly, more painlessly and longer lasting than ever before. Modern dental materials are strong and look natural. This means that in most situations, you can have your teeth repaired and no one would ever know!
An infected or severely inflamed tooth may require endodontic, or “root canal” treatment. It is successful in most cases, and allows you to save a tooth that may otherwise need to be extracted. Losing a tooth can cause others to drift or tilt. This can affect chewing, and may even lead to further decay or gum disease. Your own tooth is usually stronger and more efficient for biting and chewing than an artificial one.
Healthy gums provide the teeth with the support they need to function effectively. Unfortunately, gum disease can be present with little or no symptoms. It has even been linked to heart disease. We thoroughly examine your gums and supporting structures at every visit, and can assist you in treating and preventing gum disease, and ensuring you maintain optimal health.
Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry
Everyone wants a nice smile! If you are lucky enough to already have one, that’s fantastic! To have the smile you’ve always wanted and deserved, you may only need some simple minor touches, such as whitening or a bit of shaping. There are also many other options available to improve your smile such as straightening (orthodontics), veneers, gum lifts, through to major reconstructions. It can be a confusing choice, so we will take the time to discuss with your needs and the various options available, which will allow you to make the best treatment choice. For more details, see our Dentofacial Aesthetics page.
Spaces and gaps from lost teeth can not only be unsightly, but can affect your ability to chew effectively. This can lead to problems with digestion and in some cases, long term problems with the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ). There are several options available to replace missing teeth. These range from removable dentures, fixed bridges, and implants. We can help you make the best decision to regain your full complement of teeth.
Accidents can happen – not just in contact sports. Boxing, martial arts, Rugby, AFL are the obvious ones, but bike riding, basketball and hockey are also high risk activities. The best form of protection is a professionally fitted custom mouthguard. Many Wallaby and Waratah players currently wear our mouthguards. We can provide premium quality custom mouthguards to suit you – whatever your level of competition.
