DENTAL CHECK UP AND CLEAN IN RANDWICK AND SANS SOUCI
Regular visits to your dentist are an essential part of your dental hygiene routine. By keeping up with regular check ups, your dentist can spot the early signs of tooth decay.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM A GENERAL DENTAL CHECK UP?
Your dentist may take an x-ray to have a look at your wisdom teeth and to inspect your bite. He or she will inspect your mouth for signs of decay and gum disease and make sure any fillings you have are still in good order. Your mouth will also be checked for tooth replacements and new fillings or restorations.
Your dentist will also clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, and then polish your teeth.
At Signature Smile Dental we recommend a dental check-up every six months.
WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL IN RANDWICK AND SANS SOUCI
The wisdom teeth usually erupt towards the end of the teens or in the early twenties and, in many cases, do present with problems that may require them to be removed. Our highly skilled dentists are experienced at wisdom teeth removal and can assist you with an efficient procedure.
Because our standard of dental care has improved, and because our food is so much more refined today, we generally do not need our wisdom teeth. In many people the jaw is too small to accommodate the extra teeth and this can cause them to become impacted. Sometimes the space at the back of the jaw is too small for the toothbrush to get to, and decay can set in.
Our friendly dentists will take an x-ray to evaluate your wisdom teeth before making a recommendation for extraction.
TOOTH FILLINGS IN RANDWICK AND SANS SOUCI
If you have a cavity or a cracked or broken tooth, your dentist will need to clean it out and then fill the hole with a durable substance such as porcelain, composite resin, metal or glass.
The idea of a filling is to restore your tooth’s function and, to some extent, appearance.
If you do have amalgam fillings and require a mercury-free alternative Signature Smile Dental can assist you with the removal and replacement of your fillings.
