What does general dentistry involve?

Comprehensive oral examinations

Our comprehensive oral examinations go beyond just checking for cavities. We perform a thorough evaluation of your entire oral health, including an assessment of your gums, bite, and any potential issues. This allows us to catch problems early and develop a personalised treatment plan to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

Routine dental check-ups

Regular check-ups are crucial for maintaining good oral health. During these visits, we’ll thoroughly clean your teeth, remove any built-up plaque and tartar, and check for any signs of decay or gum disease. Our goal is to catch and address any issues before they become more serious problems.

Scale and clean

A professional scale and clean is an essential part of any routine dental visit. Our skilled hygienists use specialised tools to gently remove hardened plaque and tartar from your teeth and along the gumline. This helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and keeps your smile looking its best.

Children’s dentistry

We understand that visiting the dentist can be intimidating for little ones, which is why we go out of our way to create a fun, friendly, and relaxing environment for our youngest patients. From the moment they walk through our doors, we’ll make sure your child feels comfortable and at ease.

Dental Fillings

If we do find a cavity during your exam, we offer tooth-coloured fillings to restore the tooth’s form and function. Our fillings are virtually invisible and blend seamlessly with your natural tooth, so you can smile with confidence.

Teeth extraction

While we always aim to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible, there are times when a tooth may need to be extracted. Whether it’s due to severe decay, crowding, or impaction, we make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Wisdom teeth

Many people find that their wisdom teeth (third molars) need to be removed due to crowding, impaction, or other issues. We have extensive experience with wisdom teeth extractions and can ensure the procedure is safe, comfortable, and efficient.

Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics)

If the innermost layer of your tooth (the pulp) becomes infected or inflamed, you may require root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the interior of the tooth, and sealing it to prevent further infection.

Gum disease (Periodontics)

Gum disease is a serious condition that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. We offer advanced periodontal treatments to control and reverse gum disease, helping you maintain a healthy mouth.


Regular dental x-rays are an important diagnostic tool that allows us to detect issues not visible to the naked eye, such as cavities between teeth, bone loss, and other abnormalities. We use low-radiation digital x-rays for your safety and convenience.

What kinds of dental conditions require a general dentist?

A general dentist is qualified to treat and manage a wide range of dental conditions and oral health issues. Some of the common dental conditions that require the expertise of a general dentist include:

  • Tooth decay and cavities: General dentists are trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent tooth decay through procedures like fillings, crowns, and preventive treatments like sealants.
  • Gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis): Early stages of gum disease like gingivitis can be treated by a general dentist through professional cleanings and improved oral hygiene habits. More advanced periodontitis may require referral to a periodontist.
  • Tooth sensitivity: General dentists can identify and address the underlying causes of tooth sensitivity, such as worn tooth enamel or exposed tooth roots.
  • Tooth erosion: Excessive erosion of tooth enamel due to dietary factors or medical conditions can be managed by a general dentist through preventive measures and restorative treatments.
  • Tooth fractures and chips: Minor cracks, chips, or fractures in teeth can often be repaired by a general dentist using dental fillings or crowns.
  • Jaw pain and dysfunction: General dentists are trained to diagnose and provide initial treatment for joint disorders that cause jaw pain and dysfunction.
  • Oral cancer screening: During routine check-ups, general dentists perform oral cancer screenings to detect any signs of potentially cancerous lesions or abnormalities.
  • Teeth grinding and bruxism: General dentists can provide night guards or other treatments to protect teeth from excessive wear due to teeth grinding or bruxism.
  • Dental emergencies: General dentists are equipped to handle dental emergencies like toothaches, swelling, infections, knocked-out teeth, or other traumatic injuries to the mouth.
