When we first meet you, we will get to know you as much as possible by going through your medical history, and dental history. We do a screen cancer check as part of our standard protocol. An onsite OPG or CBCT (X-ray) is typically recommended at first visit.
At MHT Dentistry we believe that patient education and prevention are essential for a successful partnership between patient and clinician, and that this approach delivers by far the best results over both the short and long-term.
As dental plaque is the precursor for all gum, dental and implant issues, we advise a six-monthly check-up and clean to keep on top of things.
Bleeding gums and tooth discomfort are not normal, so don’t delay your visit. The quicker you book an appointment, the sooner we can fix any issues, leading to a better prognosis and potentially lower treatment costs.
Made of porcelain, and with excellent aesthetics and longevity, dental crowns are used to improve appearance or protect tooth structure. This can be required in situations where there has been root canal treatment or extensive dental treatment in the past, and there is not enough tooth structure to place a resin composite filling.
We are a mercury–free surgery. Instead we use the most advanced tooth coloured resin composite materials to fill cavities, repair a broken tooth or replace old unsatisfactory fillings.
Where dental implants can’t be used, a dental bridge is an alternative. Two teeth adjacent to a gap are cut back and used as pillars to replace the missing tooth in the middle.
Veneers or laminates are a conservative solution to enhance aesthetics, whereby a thin part of the outer layer of the tooth is removed and a porcelain laminate is applied to the tooth.
Partial Removable Chrome Cobalt Dentures
These dentures are indicated when multiple teeth have been lost and the remaining teeth are used to hold the denture in place.
Partial Acrylic Dentures
Uses high impact acrylic and are used as an interim solution but are bulkier and less retentive than other options.
Full Acrylic Dentures
Uses high impact acrylic and sometimes a metal subframe to increase strength. These dentures are used when all teeth have been lost or when planning on full mouth extraction as an immediate replacement option.
We love contact sport in Australia. Mouthguards prevent tooth loss and are the best insurance policy you can have while playing sports like AFL, Rugby, Basketball and Netball, where you or your kids are exposed to potential trauma. /p>
We understand that you don’t plan emergencies and that tooth pain can strike at any time.
