Frequently Asked Question

1What happens if I have an emergency?
Regular dental care reduces the occurrence of unexpected problems. However, in such cases, we set aside time daily to deliver prompt urgent care. We will identify the problem during these urgent appointments andgive interim care. Once comfortable, we can offer advice and discuss treatment options enabling you to make an informed decision on the most suitable dental treatments. Your oral health is important to us, Contact Us Today.
2When is payment required?
Payment is required on the day of dental treatments and is accepted in the form of cash, cheque and Eftpos/Credit card (Visa, MasterCard and Amex).

We can electronically claim your rebates for patients with private dental health insurance with our convenient HICAPS claim system, so all you have to pay is the gap amount.
3What are the common side effects of whitening?
Sensitivity of the teeth to hot or cold may last up to 48 hours and no longer than 5 days. Over the last two decades, hundreds of articles have been published reports on the non-toxicity and safety of whitening.
4When do wisdom teeth require removal?
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt into your mouth, usually at 16-23 years of age. Frequently there is not enough room for normal eruption and these teeth, therefore, become 'impacted'.

It is well documented that the removal of wisdom teeth in young adults (below the age of 25) is associated with less after-operation pain and swelling than in older adults. Therefore, if it is determined that the wisdom teeth are likely to cause problems, we will usually recommend that you have them removed earlier rather than later.
5Why replace missing teeth?
If you are missing teeth or require a tooth extraction, we can arrange an appointment to discuss your replacement options.

We sometimes find our new patients have not been made aware of the consequences of leaving teeth unreplaced before having a tooth extracted at their previous clinic. It may have been that they weren't advised on the next step and so naturally think that the job is done once the tooth is removed.

Firstly nearby teeth typically move into the space, and this consequently can impact your bites appearance and chewing ability and lead to further tooth and bone loss.
6Why is bone important?
Having reduced or limited jaw bone leaves you at risk of limited strength in the jaw. It also means that when you do make the decision to replace your missing teeth, you may not have enough bone to support dental implants.

You may be instructed that a bone graft is needed to replace the lost bone when this occurs. Bone loss can happen for several reasons, including when teeth are removed due to gum disease, cysts, infections or trauma. Following an extraction, bone shrinkage occurs in the missing tooth site, and loss is limited if acting promptly.

If there is adequate bone for a dental implant, it will support the remaining bone around it. As everyone is not suited to dental implants, we will be able to advise you as to their suitability in your case.
