General Treatment

Australians don’t always feel confident about their smiles, and when you don’t feel good about something, you don’t necessarily take care of it. About half of Australians failed to see a dentist in the past year, but that kind of dental neglect can take a serious toll on your dental health. Between 2016 and 2017, 70,000 Australians were hospitalised due to dental problems.

Research has even identified links between dental disease and overall health.

Keeping your mouth healthy might just help keep your overall body healthier. That’s what general dental treatment is all about. It involves a wide range of dental treatments, but at its centre is the routine, essential everyday dental care that keeps your teeth healthy, prevents gum disease and stops tooth decay.

Common general dental treatments include:

  • Oral dental exams to detect early signs of dental problems and keep your teeth and gums healthy
  • Professional dental cleanings to remove plaque and tartar from teeth
  • Dental sealants to protect the chewing surfaces of teeth
  • Oral cancer exams to spot early symptoms of oral cancer, which is most treatable with early detection
  • Dental fillings to restore decayed teeth and stop the progression of cavities
  • Root canal therapy to remove infected tissue and save diseased teeth
  • Dental extractions to remove teeth that are decayed or damaged beyond repair or to prepare for other treatments, such as orthodontics
  • Dental implants to replace lost teeth with a restoration that looks, feels and functions much like a natural tooth
  • Dental crowns and bridges to replace lost teeth
  • Dentures to replace lost teeth
  • Orthodontic treatments to straighten crooked teeth and correct misaligned jaws
  • Teeth whitening to erase stains and improve the overall look of a smile

Dental health is also closely linked to good dental habits at home and your diet.

Your age and lifestyle can also affect your dental health, posing unique risks and needs. We can help you take steps to protect your smile at every stage of life.
