At Totalcare Dentistry we want our patients to get the best value when taking care of their teeth. If you are a new patient, check out our new exam special and find out how you can save when receiving your comprehensive routine examination!
Regular care to protect your pearly whites
Our team ensures we safeguard your dental health with our comprehensive check-up appointments. Preventive oral care is the best way to keep your teeth healthy for a life time. Regular routine examinations enable your dentist to identify the development of oral conditions in their earlier stages. Early treatment can help us to ensure that you are safeguarded against harmful oral conditions later down the track.
Dr Ish recommends that everyone has a routine examination every six months. This regular care is important as dental concerns can develop rapidly. By addressing any early signs of cavities, decay or even gum disease, you can save your natural teeth, as well as your time and money.
Dental Hygiene and Periodontal Treatments
At totalcare dentistry, we believe that a beautiful smile starts and ends with excellent oral hygiene. Your teeth and oral function are sensitive and require constant maintenance for optimal dental health. By performing a detailed oral hygiene routine you can help ensure your smile lasts for a lifetime. It is our priority to help our patients achieve and maintain optimal oral hygiene.
There are a number of things you can do to achieve optimal oral health, in combination with visiting our team every six months for a general check-up.
At totalcare, we pride ourselves on our ability to calm and reassure all our younger patients, especially children that may be nervous about their dental visit. Appointments are tailored to the age and confidence of the child.
It is so important that children have a good start to their dental experience and within a very short time we are able to assess potential issues both habitual and developmentally that may hinder the most optimal chance for growth and development.
We welcome parents to ask as many questions as possible to help ease any concerns that they might have from sucking their thumb, dietary advice to good oral hygiene practice. We are right beside you when it comes to improving your child’s dental health and educating both them and you toward a lifetime of good daily routines.
Crowns and Bridges
Ceramic crowns are one of our most common dental procedures. This versatile tooth restoration procedure is often used to strengthen a tooth that has been affected by severe decay, fractured during an accident or weakened by root canal therapy.
For many patients, dental bridges make an excellent option to replace missing teeth. The dentists at totalcare can put in one of several different types of dental bridges depending on your unique circumstances.
Fillings and Fissure Sealants
For many years, silver metal restorations, such as amalgam fillings, were your only option for repairing cavities and improving oral health. Fortunately, at totalcare we can offer a more aesthetically pleasing option.
With white porcelain fillings/inlays/onlays, we can return decayed teeth to their optimal appearance and function.
A composite tooth filling/restoration is a common option for repairing a cavity made from composite resin, this white material can actually be shaded to better blend with your surrounding tooth structure. Composite fillings are made up of a strong, plastic material that is easy to apply and difficult to detect. This white material produces a long-lasting, natural-looking filling.
At totalcare fissure sealants are offered to patients of all ages, and are often recommended for young children who find it hard to clean their back teeth. The procedure is relatively quick, lasting for a few minutes for each tooth. Fissure sealants can last several years.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable false teeth that are worn to replace missing teeth. These artificial teeth are generally made of acrylic and designed to best match your natural teeth. The base of a denture is called a plate and is usually made of either acrylic resin or metal. Dentures can be taken out and put back into the mouth, and they are available as either full or partial dentures, depending on how many teeth need to be restored. Today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
Root Canal Therapy
totalcare strives to help our patients retain their natural teeth before we consider your other options. We have adopted this approach because we believe that your natural teeth are always your best teeth.
Our team will take every measure available to retain your natural teeth and restore cracked, discoloured or decaying teeth. Within this approach, we can also transform the appearance of your smile while also retaining its natural foundations to ensure our patients benefit from the best of both.
Oral Surgery and Wisdom Teeth Removal
At totalcare dentistry, we aim to prevent the need for complex oral procedures. Despite this, sometimes oral surgery is required and that is why our team prides themselves on providing excellent skill paired with compassionate care.
We provide oral surgery services for complex dental treatments, such as dental implants and wisdom teeth extractions. Our dentist in charge will provide a full explanation and counselling for all dental treatments. The surgery is equipped with the latest advances in dental technology to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease.
A dental implant is a fine titanium rod or screw that’s placed in your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. Dental implants integrate with the bone and serve a similar function to your missing tooth root. They also help stimulate new bone growth and prevent your jaw from shrinking.
Dental implants can be used to replace missing teeth. Once the implant has fused with your jaw, it’s covered with a replacement crown or permanent denture that’s just like a natural tooth.
A mouthguard is an essential part of protecting you or your family’s teeth
If you or a member of your family plays any form of contact sport, a mouthguard should be non-negotiable. At totalcare dentistry, we are passionate about protecting a person’s natural teeth.
While we offer comprehensive restorative dentistry treatments, we also prefer to maintain a person’s natural teeth rather than to restore them.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is closely associated with snoring where people who suffer from the disorder repeatedly stop breathing throughout the night. Breathing pauses can last anywhere from a few seconds to minutes, sometimes occurring 30 times or more each hour.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
Much more common, this type of sleep apnea occurs when your tongue and other soft tissue in your mouth collapse and are sucked up against the back of your throat, effectively blocking your airway, stopping good oxygen flow.
Central Sleep Apnea (CSA)
In this type of sleep apnea, your airway is not blocked. Rather, your brain fails to signal to your muscles to breathe, usually as a result of instability in your respiratory control centre
Tooth Grinding (Bruxism) TMJ (Temporomandibular Jaw) Pain
Your jawbone initiates much of your oral movement, such as smiling, chewing and speaking. When there is a dysfunction in this bone, known as temporomandibular disorder or TMD, you can fall victim to a number of debilitating symptoms that can affect more than just your oral condition. At totalcare, we provide comprehensive care of TMJ and jaw pain.
There are a number of factors that contribute to TMJ and jaw pain. These factors include:
- Trauma to the jaw
- Grinding and clenching (which can be both a symptom and a cause of jaw pain)
- Jaw discomfort can occur due to overfilled teeth
- Stressful workplace conditions or any external stress can also cause people to tense their jaw muscles
- Some patients develop TMJ pain through the presence of rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis
- Sleep-disordered Breathing syndromes / Sleep Apnea
