The mouth is the gateway to our body. Research has shown that Oral health is strongly linked to general health1 .In Australia, Tooth decay is the most widespread health problem which affects approximately 50% of the Australian youth by the age of 12; as a matter of fact, 90% of all tooth loss is due to tooth decay and gum disease both of which are greatly preventable with appropriate care.

Your Medical and Dental History allows our team to develop a stronger understanding of your general health and assist us in providing high quality treatments.

Comprehensive examination and X-rays

Following your medical and relevant history, our dentist will check the health of your teeth and jaw by performing a comprehensive oral examination using Intra-Oral cameras and the latest low-dose digital X-ray.

Cleaning and scaling of teeth

Our dentist and hygienist will offer you a scale, clean and polish to remove the calculus and plaque around your teeth; they may also apply fluoride to re-mineralise your teeth. Additionally, our team will educate you on evidence-based techniques to carry out successful home care through effective brushing and flossing.
