With Care Dental

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can we help you?

We are happy to answer questions about our services and procedures.

These are a selection of some common questions that patients have. If your question isn't answered here, please contact our dental clinic. It's important to us that our patients understand their dental care.

General Dentistry

Sometimes, a simple teeth whitening procedure is all it takes to put the sparkle back into your smile. If your staining or discolouration is resistant to whitening, however, we have other ways of improving the appearance of your teeth using cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, bonding, or porcelain crowns. Call us to find out which of our services is right for you.

Coming in for regular cleanings will help keep your gums in great shape, but what you do at home matters as well. Brush twice daily and floss every evening. Our team will be happy to show you proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Other steps you can take to prevent gum disease include:

  • Don't smoke or chew tobacco.
  • Eat a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Use an antiseptic mouthwash. We'll be happy to recommend one.
  • If you have a health condition that can affect your dental health such as diabetes, heart disease, or cancer, please let us know so that we can take extra steps to help keep your gums healthy.

Crowns and Bridges

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

A dental bridge is a dental restoration that usually includes two dental crowns and a replacement tooth (pontic) that fills the empty space left by a missing tooth. The dental crowns are secured to adjacent teeth on either side of the empty space and provide support for the artificial tooth.

Dental Implants

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Dental implants have several advantages over other tooth replacement options:

  • Dental implants appear the most life-like and natural.
  • The actual implant piece of the dental implant is made of titanium, a biocompatible metal.
  • Dental implants are the most secure and stable.
  • Dental implants prevent bone loss, keeping your jawbone healthy and preventing changes in the shape of your face.
  • With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes, a simple teeth whitening procedure is all it takes to put the sparkle back into your smile. If your staining or discolouration is resistant to whitening, however, we have other ways of improving the appearance of your teeth using cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, bonding, or porcelain crowns. Call us to find out which of our services is right for you.

Sleep Apnoea and Snoring

Snoring can sometimes be a symptom of a serious condition called sleep apnea. If you snore and also notice that you have trouble with daytime fatigue or drowsiness, mood swings, and headaches, call your physician to be evaluated for sleep apnea.

We can provide you with a comfortable oral appliance that will open up your airway while you sleep. More oxygen is allowed to enter the bloodstream, and both you and your significant other will rest easier.

TMJ and Bruxism

While teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is very common among adults, it can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw joints. If you wake up with sore muscles or you have noticed that you clench or grind your teeth, we can make a night guard to help protect your teeth.

LEVEL 1 RESTRICTIONS:

We are happy to announce we are back on Level 1 restrictions and would be able to perform all dental services and treatments.

Level 1 means that dental professionals must continue to screen patients and only treat those who do not meet the epidemiological and clinical risk factors for COVID-19. As such we would be asking all the patients few medical and travel history questions as pre-screening for Covid-19.
Online bookings are not open to better screen our patients. We really appreciate your understanding at this time to help us provide optimal care for our community
