Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can we help you?

Choosing the dentist that will work best for your family is a big decision. You probably have a number of questions you wish to ask regarding the services we offer and our practice philosophy. We have provided a list of some of the most common questions we receive in our clinic. If yours didn't make the list, simply give us a call or use our online contact form to get in touch. We are always here to help.

Crowns and Bridges

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Modern dental materials and technology have dramatically improved the appearance of dental crowns and bridges. Our dentist strive to match your dental restorations with your natural teeth, giving you a uniform smile. The porcelain used in today’s crowns and bridges can be colour-matched to blend perfectly with the shade of your natural teeth, providing protection and esthetics.

Dental Emergencies

We never want our patients to feel pain or suffer from poor dental health. We prioritise dental emergencies and do our best to treat you quickly so that you can get back to your regular schedule again. We often treat dental emergencies on the same day. Contact us at the first sign of trouble so that we can get you taken care of!

Dentures and Partials

It will take your mouth some time to get used to the feel of dentures.

After a few weeks, however, you will feel comfortable eating and talking with your dentures in and experience little to no soreness or discomfort. If you ever do experience soreness or your dentures aren’t fitting right, please let us know so we can adjust them properly.

General Dentistry

We welcome patients of all ages from your toddler to your family's most senior members. We make it easy for families to schedule their dental appointments and can often schedule simultaneous appointments for your convenience. Give us a call to learn more!

Preventive Dentistry

Even with excellent hygiene habits, it is impossible to reach the smallest areas of your teeth with your toothbrush and floss alone. Over time, the missed plaque will harden into tartar, which can only be removed with a dental hygienist's tools. When tartar accumulates beneath the gumline, the end result is red, puffy, inflamed gums — the beginnings of periodontal disease.

Root Canal Treatment

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

The pain associated with root canals often comes from the symptoms, which can be severe and worsen over time. Root canal therapy and anaesthetic techniques have improved considerably and should feel no different than a filling. Most patients find relief with root canal treatment.
