General and Preventive Dentistry

General and Preventive Dentistry

Our aim at Caulfield south dental surgery, Melbourne, is to provide you with a healthy beautiful smile.  We offer a range of general and preventive services, because a good looking smile would not be complete without total oral healthcare.  Regular dental check up and cleaning is the best way to avoid most dental problems.

A general rule of thumb suggested by most dental health professionals is that you visit the dentist once every six months for general check up and  cleaning.  Doing this allows us to identify problems early before they develop into a dental emergency.  These visits also let us remove plaque and tartar from hard to reach places around your teeth, because no one can clean every single spot in their mouth.  We also recommend regular x-rays to check under your fillings and around your jaw to detect any underlying problems.

Good preventive dentistry and oral health care can prevent decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease, keeping your smile happy and healthy.

We understand there is a certain level of anxiety everyone in the community experiences  when coming to the dentist.  Sometimes, due to this, patients have delayed in seeking help, and a relative minor problem such as a dental cavity could develop into an abscess which requires more costly and lengthy treatment. Rather than waiting until pain starts, and an emergency dental visit is required, At Caulfield south dental surgery, our team is willing to listen to your concerns, and can offer sleep dentistry, where patients could be put under sedation in our clinic, or having your dental work done as a day surgery patient in a hospital under general anaesthetic.  Talk to us, maybe all you need is some  reassurance and a gentle hand.
