Our Services

Our services are tailored JUST for your NEEDS

Anxiety and fear management.

Not many people like going to the dentist. We understand that it might not be a pleasant experience. In order to help you along, we've got a number of ways to help relax you. We have a variety of methods including inhalation sedation, pre-operative mild sedation, IV sedation (sleep dentistry) and general anaesthetic (G.A. i.e. hospital). Most people are fine to have their treatment with a combination of the first three methods, but occasionally for minor surgery procedures i.e. taking out wisdom teeth, hospitalisation may be needed. The important thing to remember, is that we're aware of your fears and we'll do the best by you, to make your visit as pleasant and painless as possible.

Aspiring to exceed your expectation and create the smile of your dreams.

Smiles in Australia is the dental practice for you. We provide patients with quality dentistry and are dedicated to caring for your oral needs. Smiles in Australia provides patients with the following range of contemporary oral treatments and services;

Examinations

A full dental examination is an essential part of your dental health. During an examination, we establish the health of your mouth with an overall view of your general health. Without a proper examination, we can’t tell exactly how many problems you have or what is the nature of the problems.

Dental radiographs (X-rays) are an essential part of the examination. Just as a medical doctor needs a radiograph to see if you’re leg is broken or fractured, we need radiographs to see whether you have cavities starting in between your teeth, underneath existing fillings, bone levels around your teeth and a whole host of other information which is important in planning your treatment.

Minimal Amalgam Dentistry

In modern dentistry, white filling material (composite) when placed properly can last a long time in people’s mouth. Back in the day, the fillings dentists did would be generally a lot larger so amalgam (metal) fillings were used for strength. Now, fillings that we do are generally smaller so white filling material (composite) is an excellent alternative to metal fillings. Even in slightly larger fillings, composite does quite well. As the filling size increases though, other alternatives need to be considered.

Wisdom Teeth

Often there is little space at the rear of the jaws for wisdom teeth to come through and this often leads the wisdom teeth to become wedged in or "impacted".

Some impacted wisdom teeth remain buried and cause no trouble. However, other impacted wisdom teeth my cause severe problems and need to be removed. Possible problems caused by impacted wisdom teeth include infection, pain, crowding, cysts, damage to nearby molars, ulcers or sites of food trapping.

Oral Hygiene

Your oral hygiene is essential for a healthy mouth. There are many aspects to oral hygiene in addition to brushing and flossing. There are a variety of brushes, a variety of floss types and a whole bunch of other adjunctive aids to help you get your oral hygiene to the best it can be.

As part of your dental care, we discuss your oral hygiene in detail and can answer any questions you may have. For example, we are often asked what the cause of bad breath (halitosis) is. Did you know that bad breath is commonly caused by bacterial colonisation of the tongue? Do you know the methods of keeping the tongue clean?

Preventive Dentistry

We’re entering an era where we dentists, realise that preventing problems rather than a “wait till something’s broke before we fix it” approach is more beneficial to our patients.

Preventive dentistry empowers us as health professionals and you as the patient, to proactively prevent decay and gum disease from affecting your mouth. For example, regular fluoride treatments can help to arrest and remineralise areas of initial decay.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a method whereby we can retain a tooth in the mouth, which otherwise would be removed. There are a variety of reasons why root canal therapy may be needed but its usually as a result of decay. Bacteria can enter the pulp (containing the blood vessels and nerves that nourish the tooth) of the tooth and cause a tooth ache. In some circumstances, the bacteria invade the pulp, make their way down the canals inside the tooth and spread into the bone in which the teeth are anchored in.
