General dentistry encompasses a wide range of dental treatments that are designed to detect and treat common dental issues. At Toorak Fine Dentistry, we offer a comprehensive range of general dental health care services.
We pride ourselves on being a dental health centre not just a dental practice- we want to help you achieve optimum oral and dental health. Our highly trained team of dentists will assist you with your regular dental check up as well as routine dental cleaning by qualified dental hygienists. We also have the capability to manage more complex dental procedures in house such as root canal treatment, or tooth extractions if required. Our staff are committed to providing a treatment plan that suits you and your specific dental health care needs.
Our dentists can restore teeth that have incurred minor decay or damage with white fillings that can help make your teeth look natural when you smile or laugh. We offer porcelain or composite resin fillings and restorations based on your preference and budgetary requirements.
Root Canal Treatment is required when the nerve of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This is known as the “pulp” of the tooth. The pulp can become infected or inflamed due to break down of a filling or a crown, a deep cavity, trauma, gum disease, a crack,chip or extreme wear. Symptoms may include, pain, sensitivity to heat or cold, tooth discoloration and swelling or soreness in the gums surrounding the tooth. Our dentists will take x-rays and carry out a series of tests to determine whether your tooth requires root canal treatment.
Root Canal Treatment requires removal of the inflamed or infected pulp followed by cleaning and disinfection of the tooth. Root Canal Treatment is completed by our dentists and will generally take two appointments to complete. If left untreated, your tooth may get infected to the point where it has to be extracted.
The expertise of our staff as well as the state-of-the-art technology at our dental health centre allows us to match a new crown or bridge to the shape and colour of your existing teeth. We will recommend that you receive regular dental checkups and teeth cleaning from one of our highly skilled dental hygienists as part of the long term care of your crown or bridge work. It is very important to maintain the health of the tooth beneath the crown and bridge as well as the gums surrounding them.
In some people, there is insufficient room for the wisdom teeth to erupt easily through the gum and you may experience impacted wisdom teeth. This can cause complications such as wisdom tooth pain, crowding, or infection. Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. These teeth only need to be removed when they are impacted and that impaction has led to other problems.The easiest way to know if you need your wisdom teeth extracted is to visit your dentist for an examination. At Toorak Fine Dentistry, our dentists offer wisdom tooth removal.
Toorak Fine Dentistry offers patients various options to replace missing teeth, including dental implants, bridges and dentures. Our dentist will explain how each of these options could improve both the aesthetics and functionality of your mouth and teeth.
