Family Preventive Care in the 2290 Area
We welcome patients of all ages, and we recommend that both children and adult patients visit us twice each year for check-ups and cleans. This gives our dentists a chance to monitor oral health to help ensure you can avoid many common dental issues, including tooth decay and gum disease.
Many people don’t realise just how crucial gum health is when it comes to your overall oral health. Often gum disease is present, but people experience no symptoms. The only way to know for sure if your gums are healthy is through an oral examination. In its early stages, we can sometimes reverse gum disease—but only if it's detected early.
Perhaps your smile is healthy, but you are not happy with the way it looks. There are many cosmetic dental options available that can turn your smile into one you love to show the world. We offer teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and bonding for smiles in need of improvement.
Patients who are missing teeth or need a tooth repaired will find that we offer a full range of restorative services at Charlestown Dental Care. For tooth replacement, our dentists can provide dental implants, bridges, and full and partial dentures to restore your smile—as well as your quality of life.
Because we offer comprehensive implant dentistry, we can restore missing teeth with a dental implant right here at our clinic. Our patients appreciate the fact that they can work with our trusted team from the start of their implant procedure all the way to the finish.
For damaged teeth, we offer dental crowns, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers to repair your smile.
We use only quality dental materials to ensure that patients receive long-lasting, attractive restorations. All of our crowns and dentures are made locally by highly skilled technicians who are available to consult with you if required to make sure your new smile is exactly what you want.
Root Canal Therapy
Although the root canal is well known as one of the most feared dental procedures, in reality, this tooth-saving procedure feels similar to getting a dental filling. A root canal eliminates infection in the tooth root as well as any pain you might be suffering because of it. We usually recommend a dental crown for the affected tooth to protect it and restore it to its full function.
If you know or suspect you might be chronically clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth, we can help. Called bruxism, this unconscious habit often means patients suffer from headaches and jaw pain as well as undue wear on their teeth. To keep you out of pain and to protect your teeth, we can create a customised oral appliance that you wear at night.
Let us provide you and your family with high-quality, compassionate dental care. We invite you to call to book an appointment.
