Regular dental check-ups and good dental hygiene are the secrets to healthy teeth and gums at all ages.
At le tooth, we take preventative dental care seriously.
Our examinations begin with a comprehensive assessment of your oral health and needs. A scale and clean procedure then removes any plaque and tartar build-up that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Lastly, a high-concentration fluoride treatment strengthens your enamel and protects your teeth from cavities.
It is essential for children to develop good dental hygiene and habits from a young age.
At le tooth, our paediatric patients are welcomed to a friendly environment, ensuring they feel right at home during treatment.
We offer bulk-billed dental treatment for children eligible under the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). The CDBS covers up to $1,000 over a two year period, for a range of preventative and restorative treatments.
Experiencing bad breath or swollen, sore, bleeding gums?
Gum disease is a common condition that begins with gum inflammation caused by the bacteria in plaque build-up (gingivitis). If left untreated, toxins from the bacteria can destroy the bone and gum tissue that hold teeth in place, resulting in tooth loss (periodontitis).
Fortunately, gum disease can be easily treated with deep gum cleaning when diagnosed early, and kept at bay with regular brushing and flossing.
If your tooth has been damaged from physical trauma or decay, a filling can restore its form and function.
Our fillings are crafted with precision from modern, tooth-coloured materials such as composite resins and porcelain ceramics.
This ensures all restorative work is durable and blends in naturally with your smile.
Dreading the thought of having your wisdom teeth removed?
Delaying treatment can actually result in acute facial pain and infection. The removal of impacted wisdom teeth is often a complex procedure that requires careful diagnosis and planning, in order to avoid disturbing the surrounding teeth.
When participating in contact sports, wearing a mouthguard is essential for protecting your teeth from trauma.
But did you know that not all mouthguards are created equal?
Boil and bite mouthguards (available over-the-counter or online) often fit poorly, and offer little shock absorption from direct impacts to the mouth.
