General Dentistry in Glenside

Dentist chair iconThe general dentistry services offered at East Adelaide Dental Studio are designed to boost your overall oral health, presently and in the long term. Our range of solutions includes dental hygiene and education, checkups and cleanings, extractions, endodontics (root canal treatment) and porcelain or composite fillings.

Dental Hygiene and Education

Both young and old can benefit from our dental hygienist’s expert instructions and recommendations. From techniques to specific products, we’ll teach you how to maintain optimal teeth and gum health. These appointments can be booked directly with our hygienist. They’ll help you prevent the need for costlier or more serious dental work in the future.

Children can especially benefit from such instruction. To help your child become comfortable in our environment, you’re welcome to stop by and visit our practice or bring them in with you to your checkups, so they are familiar with our team and atmosphere.

Checkups and Cleanings

These will be completed by our dental hygienist. Areas of concern will be identified and discussed with our dentists for further evaluation. Claire Thornton, our oral health therapist, is available to work with children under 18 years of age.

A comprehensive examination isn’t just about cleaning or examining your teeth. It also includes discussing your health history, screening for oral cancer, taking diagnostic X-rays, analysing gum health, looking at your bite and jaw, and a tooth-by-tooth assessment.

Tooth Extractions

Occasionally, a tooth can’t be saved with restorative options or a root canal treatment. In such cases, we can provide extractions that are comfortable and discuss suitable replacements for your particular situation. There are different levels of numbing solutions available to ensure that you feel relaxed and at ease throughout the extraction.

Root Canal Treatment

With the modern, advanced equipment available at our practice, root canal treatment is easier than ever. In the past, you may have thought of pain and discomfort when discussing such a procedure. Now, though, we provide an efficient, comfortable treatment that takes just about an hour. Root canal treatment allows you to save a tooth from extraction, minimise further damage, and stop an infection from spreading.

You’ll be properly anaesthetised before starting. Then, the infected or damaged tissue is removed and the root packed with a filling material. Lastly, your tooth will receive a crown that protects and stabilises it.

Porcelain or Composite Fillings

Amalgam-free fillings blend in with your teeth for an attractive look that’s also affordable and strengthens a tooth after it’s been weakened by a form of decay. The traditional silver amalgam fillings used commonly in the past contain mercury. Instead of these substances, we use porcelain or composite materials that blend in seamlessly with your smile.
