The Dental Treatments We Offer

sleep dental treatmentsAt Smile Solutions you are assured of being treated by the appropriate clinician, regardless of whether you do or do not require sedation. We will never compromise your quality of care.

All of our 52-plus specialists, general dentists and hygienists work together in the one location, and between them they cover all areas of dentistry. This means that you will always be treated according to your needs and it also enables a high level of communication – and hence a better outcome – between all the clinicians treating you.

Our general dentists are highly experienced in the treatment of everything from cleans and general checkups to root canal therapy, wisdom tooth removal and emergency dental treatment.

As well as general dentistry, we provide specialist treatments encompassing all six main fields:

  • Prosthodontics – concerned with the design, manufacture, and fitting of artificial replacements for teeth, including veneers, crowns and bridges
  • Periodontics – treatment of the structures surrounding and supporting the teeth, including gum lifts, placement of implants and management of periodontal (gum) disease
  • Orthodontics – treatment of irregularities of alignment and bite of the teeth and jaw, including the use of fixed metallic and clear plastic braces
  • Endodontics – the branch of dentistry dealing with diseases of the dental pulp (the living tissue and cells inside both the tooth and its roots); a common treatment performed by endodontists is root canal therapy
  • Oral & maxillofacial surgery, and
  • Paediatric (children’s) dentistry.

How can I choose between a general dentist and a specialist for my treatment?

In Australia, all dental specialists are required to be registered with the Dental Board of Australia and are listed on the website of the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency. While general dentists are allowed to perform the majority of dental procedures, by law certain procedures may only be performed by a registered specialist.

You may choose to have specialist work performed by a general dentist for reasons of affordability or in emergency cases where immediate treatment is necessary. Your dentist should always inform you of the option to see a specialist where available; otherwise it is recommended that you ask about this.
