A complete dental service
During a dental exam, the dentist will:
Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease
Evaluate your need for tooth restoration or tooth replacement
Check your bite and jaw for problems
Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures
Assess your need for fluoride
Take dental X-rays or, if necessary, do other diagnostic procedures
Provide a treatment plan
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.
By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain and a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings).
Teeth can discolour for various reasons. The dentist will recommend the most ideal method based on your oral condition after an in-office examination to establish the cause and nature of your tooth discolouration, as well as provide you with more information on the various types of whitening procedures available, duration & frequency of treatment.
At Old town Dental Practice we have years of experience in the placing of quality dental implants. Implants one of the most aesthetic and cost efficient ways to replace poor or missing teeth.
Used to support a single crown, bridge containing two or more teeth or a denture covering your entire upper or lower jaw, implants offer a long lasting, effective solution and most importantly, help to bring back that confident smile.
Dental hygienists are an important part in helping people care for their teeth and are responsible for a lot of preventative dental treatment, cleaning teeth to minimise the risk of gum disease developing.
Polish and scale treatments should not hurt but if there is some discomfort or pain then the hygienists will have anaesthetic gels that can be used to make sure that the treatment is comfortable.
We provide an emergency dental care throughout the year. The emergency dental service is provided to local and national patients and is not restricted. If you require emergency dental care please contact us.
Our goal is immediate dental treatment and pain relief, so don't suffer in pain, help is only a call away.
Emergency appointments and walk in appointments available.We will always endeavour to see you on the same day. We cannot always be flexible with the emergency appointments so please call as soon as possible and we will allocate you an appointment. We can also offer you a sit and wait service.
Veneers are thin shells of tooth coloured material (ceramic or composite) that are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance used to mask stained, misaligned or chipped and broken teeth. Veneers are usually placed on front teeth and are generally not suitable in load bearing areas like back teeth.
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and are removable. There are two types of dentures – complete or ‘full’ (where all your teeth are missing) or partial dentures (used to replace one or more missing teeth). These can be made of plastic or metal and anchor onto the remaining teeth for stability. They also provide structure to your smile and prevent surrounding facial muscles from sagging.
Your dentist will also be able to offer you the ‘Flexible Denture’ which is based on a new flexible material, making them much easier to wear, more comfortable and able to adapt to slight changes in the shape of your mouth, for example, when you are eating or drinking.
