  • Anxiety in dentistry and what can be done about it

    Don't panic!

    You’re sitting in the waiting room, your palms are a little sweaty and your heart is beating a little faster than normal. You’re waiting for someone to call you through for your dreaded 6 monthly appointment at the dentist. The room, the smell, the person poking around in your mouth. You like your dentist, you have nothing against them but you hate what they do!

  • Dental Sedation Methods in Depth

    White pills and a bottle

    We recently discussed anxiety in dentistry and the options to provide anxiety relief in the dental clinic. In this article, we’ll describe the methods in greater detail and discuss which types of procedures would be suitable for the form of sedation available.

    The most common medications we use for light sedation are Diazepam (Valium) and Penthrox (Methoxyflurane). Valium falls under the medication class of “benzodiazepines” and has been used safely for over 50 years.

  • Extractions

    When a tooth has experienced significant decay or trauma, it is likely that it will be damaged in such a way that it likely best removed. This may be to prevent future pain, infection or otherwise. An extraction is the last resort for a tooth and should not be considered lightly. Losing a tooth may affect the position of other teeth, your ability to chew properly, your ability to talk properly and the appearance of your teeth both currently and at a future date. Teeth drift into spaces and gaps may open up between teeth that are far away from the site of extraction.

    When do I need a tooth extraction?

    A dentist is usually the best-equipped person to advise when an extraction is necessary. If the dentist believes an extraction is necessary, you will still retain the choice as to whether to go through with it or not. Call us on (08) 9301 4088, book online or contact us via other methods to start the process.

  • General Dentistry

    Best dentists in Joondalup

    What is general dentistry?

    General dentistry is concerned with fixing problems relating to oral health, pain in your teeth and gums, and long-term care for your mouth. We are obliged to do what we can to get you out of pain (such as tooth aches), and then address the need for fillings, root canal treatment, hygiene therapy and more. Our dentists are also trained in identifying abnormalities in the mouth and gums, including oral cancers. It is important to remember that a lack of pain does not mean things are all fine.

    Modern dental techniques and technology

    We keep up-to-date with the latest research published by the Australian Dental Association, so that we don't over-treat nor fail to recognise when treatment is needed. Additionally, we are striving to make our business more effective through the use of technology, including digital x-rays, leading dental software and converting paper to digital wherever possible.

    How can I get my teeth fixed?

    The first step is booking a consultation with one of our dentists. Call us on (08) 9301 4088, book online or contact us via other methods
