Scale and Clean and Other General Dentistry Procedures
Trust Greenvale Dentistry to take care of your general dental needs.
We have a strong commitment to preventative dentistry and encourage regular check-ups and consultations. Everyone should brush, floss and scale and clean frequently to avoid bacteria build-up and disease.
Are you self-conscious about your smile? Furry teeth? Bad breath? Sometimes all it takes is a scale and clean at Greenvale dentistry to restore your confidence. We all aspire for that refreshing feeling of running your tongue along smooth, shiny enamel because it is simply satisfying
Children should look after their teeth from an early age because they need to be able to speak clearly and chew properly. If kids do not maintain clean teeth and gums they risk ongoing pain and increase their chances of developing disease and infection.
Prevent the need for dental implants and emergency dental care later in life; promote best oral health practices and lead by example so that kids can enjoy check-ups and scale and cleans.
We encourage regular appointments with parents, carers, guardians and children to discuss:
- Eligibility for Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS)
- Ways to alleviate anxiety in children
- Childhood dental development advice
- Dental tips while pregnant
- Customer-made mouthguards
- Fissure sealants
When a tooth is compromised our preference is to save it via root canal therapy (RCT). RCT involves removing the pulp (sensitive nerves, blood vessels) to stop bacteria and to help alleviate pain and discomfort that may result from inflammation and infection.
Wisdom teeth are the 1-4 molars at the back of your mouth that can potentially develop during your late teens and young adolescence. The good news is that wisdom teeth do not always need to be removed. It is possible for these molars to penetrate gum tissue without affecting your jaw or other teeth.
An extraction may be required, however, if the teeth are crowded and there is not enough space in the jaw to support the new molar(s). Similarly, you can prevent acute pain, gum inflammation and other hygiene issues with a regular scale and clean and check-up to pre-empt trouble.
At Greenvale Dentistry we have the facilities to radiograph (X-ray) your mouth to assess the angle of eruption (if applicable) and whether further action is required to promote positive oral health.
Emergency dentists may be required at any time for urgent treatment. This is why our team is on standby for your comfort.
Our emergency dentists are skilled at handling all emergency dental situations such as:
- Chipped/broken teeth
- Mouth infections
- Denture repairs
- Impacted wisdom teeth
