Clean and application of fluoride
It is recommended to every patient to have a professional dental clean every six months, a professional clean done by a qualified dentist can prevent the development of cavities.
The enamel which is the outer layer of a tooth, is made of closely packed mineral crystals. Bacteria in the plaque together with sugar and other carbohydrates in your mouth can develop acids. This acids dissolve the mineral crystals in the tooth enamel. The lost of this minerals leads to tooth decay. Direct application of fluoride in your teeth help to remineralisation of the enamel resulting in the prevention of tooth decay.

Tooth coloured fillings
Also called Resin Fillings, are dental fillings that restore and mimic the natural appearance of tooth structure. In addition to restoring teeth that have fractured or decayed, tooth coloured fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the size, colour and shape of teeth. This quality is particularly useful in closing gaps between teeth; repairing chipped teeth and making teeth appear to be more straight or even.
At Plenty Smiles we provide Mercury Free Dentistry. More info.
Treatment of Periodontal (gum) disease.
If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you are not alone. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
What causes gum disease?
Our mouths are full of bacteria. These bacteria, along with mucus and other particles, constantly form a sticky, colourless “plaque” on teeth. Brushing and flossing help get rid of plaque. If plaque not removed it can harden and form a hard layer called “Tartar” which you can’t removed with your normal tooth brush.
Only a professional cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist can remove tartar.
Root Canal Therapy
s a sequence of therapies for the pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future infection.
If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, your dentist will try to fix it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there’s too much damage for the tooth to be repaired. In this case, the tooth needs to be extracted.
Dentures are an option for the replacement of missing or lost teeth and can assist you to feel more confident when smiling and allow you to eat a wide range of foods. Health fund rebates are available.
