Frequently Asked Questions

It’s recommended to visit the dentist every six months for a routine check-up and clean. These visits are crucial for maintaining oral health, as they allow for the early detection and treatment of any dental issues, as well as professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar build-up.

During your visit, you can expect a thorough dental examination, including checks for cavities, gum disease, and any other oral health concerns. A gentle scale and clean will be performed to remove plaque and tartar. Additionally, you’ll receive personalised advice on your oral hygiene routine and screening for oral diseases and cancer.

We strive to make dental extractions as comfortable as possible. The area around the tooth will be numbed with local anaesthesia to minimise discomfort during the procedure. Post-extraction, you may experience some soreness as the anaesthesia wears off, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Tooth-coloured fillings are preferred for their aesthetic benefits, as they closely match the natural colour of your teeth, making them virtually invisible. Additionally, they bond directly to the tooth structure, providing stronger support and reducing the risk of leakage or decay under the filling. They also do not contain mercury, which is a concern for some patients with metal fillings.

Composite resin fillings are made from a mixture of plastic and fine glass particles, offering durability and a natural appearance that can be matched to the shade of your tooth. They are ideal for front and back teeth. GIC fillings, while also tooth-coloured, contain glass particles and acrylic acids that release fluoride, which can help prevent decay. GIC fillings are often used in areas not subjected to heavy chewing pressure and are particularly beneficial for patients at high risk of decay.

Signs you may need a dental filling include tooth sensitivity, toothache, visible holes or pits in your teeth, dark spots on the surface of your teeth, and pain when biting down. However, some cavities may not present any symptoms in the early stages, which is why regular dental check-ups are essential for early detection and treatment.
