FAQs

Why is dental care home important?

Dental diseases can be prevented and more than 50% of this is achieved by your home dental hygiene. A good brushing technique is a key factor to reduce plaque building in your teeth which helps to prevent gum disease and tooth decay which can lead to extensive and costly dental treatment.

Is teeth cleaning expensive?

Not at all, our philosophy is to keep prices low. Oral hygiene is the foundation of maintaining a long-term relationship with our patients, providing you affordable health services is our priority. Many other practices tend to charge much higher fees for no reason. Each session takes around 45 minutes with one of our dental hygienists, or you can request to be seen by your dentist at no extra cost.

Are teeth cleaning procedures painful?

Usually, dental hygiene treatment is pain-free. If you find treatment uncomfortable it is important that you discuss this with the hygienist, there are several options for sedation dentistry to help.

Why does a Dental Hygienist do the work and not a Dentist?

Dental Hygienists are specially trained to perform preventive treatment and maintenance of the mouth, teeth and gums. Due to high demand for our complex dental services, the dentist is usually booked in advance, but by request, you can have one of our practitioners to provide you with this service too.

Will Dental Veneers look like normal teeth?

Porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and they look like healthy white teeth. They are highly resistant to coffee, tea and soda stains. Due to their thin nature, they are penetrable by light and take on the more natural colour of the underlying tooth.

How much does an Invisalign® treatment cost?

The cost of Invisalign® at our offices is usually cheaper than regular braces, but it will depend on several individual factors, including:

What is an All-On-4?

An All-on-4 is a teeth restoration technique which combines the use of 4 implants attached to the maxilla (superior bone) or mandible (jaw bone) to fix a full dental prosthesis such as a denture or a bridge. In the majority of cases, the dental prosthesis could be fixed between 24 to 72 hours after surgery.

When do wisdom teeth need to be extracted?

When wisdom teeth start to erupt they can push your other teeth other of alignment or result in crowding which will require a more expensive orthodontic treatment later, on top of the necessary wisdom teeth extractions. Note this theory is currently under new research as several other studies have found that patients without wisdom teeth still present dental crowding.

Due to their position at the end of the mouth, wisdom teeth may be difficult to clean, which can lead them to decay, gum inflammation and infection. In this case, it is possible that a filling, a root canal, or even a tooth extraction is required. Wisdom teeth can erupt in very odd position, facing forward, backward, sideways, and in very extreme cases, in the area below the tongue, and in many occasions leads to decay on the molars in front of them. Wisdom teeth could partially erupt, causing a flap of gum tissue to the ground over them.

This can cause small pieces of food get trapped under this tissue, which lead to harmful bacteria to grow in the area, causing gum inflammation, pain and an infection. If left unattended, severe damage to your gum, nearby teeth and even your jaw bone can occur.

What is considered a dental emergency?

  •  Bad toothache
  • Severe pain or signs on infection, such as fever and facial pain
  • Broken or chipped teeth or crowns
  • Missing crowns or fillings
  •   Missing veneer
  • Cracked or broken dentures
  • Teeth knocked out due to an accident
  • Jaw pain
  • Soft tissue trauma & bleeding
If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, please contact your nearest clinic immediately.
