General Dentistry in Balwyn
Modern dentistry incorporates an extensive array of treatment procedures. At iSmile Studio, we want to make sure you get the most out of your appointments with us, your teeth stay healthy for life, and you benefit from total wellbeing. Our friendly team delivers complete dental care, and will even show you how to best maintain your smile between checkups!
A regular, thorough examination will allow us to continually monitor and detect any problems with your teeth and gums in the earliest stages. We’ll thoroughly clean your teeth, while looking out for signs of gum disease, cavities and issues with general function. In many cases, we’ll also take detailed X-rays to check for any problems that may be hiding below your gum line or jaw bone. A regular inspection will allow us to identify the right treatment to resolve issues early, before they have a chance to develop into something more serious.
Tooth-coloured fillings can be made from composite materials or ceramic, depending on the problem. The right filling will repair damage and restore your smile to its natural appearance.
What happens during a hygiene treatment?
Although your regular oral hygiene routine is vitally important, our hygienist will also thoroughly clean and scale your teeth. This will involve removing any build-up of plaque and tartar, which can cause gum disease, and can’t be achieved by simply brushing and flossing.
What does children’s dentistry involve?
Basically, we’re about encouraging good oral hygiene from an early age, which aligns with our commitment to prevention. Our friendly team will work to ensure your child’s dental visits are fun, and that their teeth, facial bones and dental arch are developing properly.
How often should I visit a dentist?
The mist common answer is that you should visit your dentist every six months for a comprehensive examination and check-up. This will ensure any oral health concerns are detected and treated before they escalate and require extensive restorative treatments. However, as dental needs vary, we’ll closely evaluate and monitor your oral health, and customise our care to perfectly meet your needs. At the end of each appointment, we should have a good idea of when we’ll need to see you again.
A COMFORTABLE DENTAL EXPERIENCE
We know many people delay booking a trip to the dentist because of fears related to pain or discomfort. Fortunately, a wide range of pain and control medications and techniques can successfully reduce or eliminate pain, and control anxiety during procedures.
