We offer comprehensive cleaning and oral hygiene support so you can learn ways to prevent the development of cavities. By scheduling regular check-ups if you do get a cavity we can find it earlier when it's smaller and you can get it fixed before it becomes a big problem!
We recommend patients visit every six months. If you are experiencing a toothache, bleeding gums when you brush, trouble flossing or sensitivity when eating or drinking you should come ASAP!
Ideally, from two years of age children should start visiting the dentist. Bring them with you next time you have your regular check-up and they can go for a ride on the dental chair and have their teeth counted.
NO! Your tooth may be a little sensitive to temperature for a couple days after your filling and this generally settles on its own. However if your tooth hurts to bite on this is NOT normal and you should come back ASAP to have the filling adjusted.
Getting 'numbed up' means you're having a local anaesthetic injection. This means you can't feel pain, or temperature changes. Getting numbed up is standard for most procedures like fillings, root canals, crowns, implants etc. The numb feeling lasts for about 2/3 hours. You must be very careful after your procedure not to burn yourself or bite your lips/cheeks/tongues! You are still able to eat but nothing you have to chew and nothing too hot/cold.
We understand that visiting the dentist is not something many people look forward to. If you are a suitable candidate you may be eligible to have Penthrox which is a self-administered inhaler that helps calm you down and relieve pain. We may also be able to prescribe an oral tablet you can take before your procedure.
