General Check-ups

Regular check-ups with a dentist improve the chance of problems such as tooth decay and gum disease being spotted before they can cause permanent damage. General check-ups at our Kelmscott dental practice include:

  • Checking your medical history for any relevant details
  • Comprehensive assessment of your teeth and gums
  • X-rays to check for signs of problems
  • Oral health advice
  • Discussing your treatment options and goals (if necessary)

It’s recommended that you see a dentist every 6 months. Our dentists will recommend the ideal visiting pattern based on your individual oral health needs.

X-rays

X-rays are important for helping your dentist to catch problems early and plan treatments effectively. We only recommend routine x-rays every 12 months, unless you have an ongoing problem. The diagnostic tools we use are:

  • Intraoral photographs
  • Bitewing radiographs
  • 3D CBCT scans
  • OPG panoramic x-rays

Dental x-rays use very low radiation, but we will still take every precaution to protect you from unnecessary exposure. We don’t recommend x-rays for young children or pregnant women, unless necessary.

Fillings, Inlays & Onlays

If our dentists spot cavities or other damage in your teeth, we may recommend placing a filling, inlay or onlay. White fillings at Kelmscott Dental are made from either composite resin or porcelain and both can be matched to your natural tooth colour. If a larger restoration is needed, we may place an inlay or onlay that are custom-made and bonded to your tooth.

Bruxism & TMJ Treatment

Do you grind or clench your teeth at night or during the day? This condition (known as bruxism) can damage or weaken teeth over time and may lead to other issues, such as problems affecting the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) in the jaw. Our dentists can diagnose these problems and recommend appropriate treatments. This may involve repairing or straightening uneven teeth or a custom mouthguard to wear at night.

Root Canal Therapy

If tooth decay or damage reaches the centre of the tooth, this can lead to the tooth becoming infected. Root canal therapy (endodontics) is a routine procedure that involves removing the damaged tissue, replacing it with a synthetic substitute and sealing the treated tooth with a filling or crown. The root canal procedure is performed under local anaesthesia so you won’t feel pain.

Wisdom Tooth Removal & Extractions

Wisdom teeth don’t always need to be removed, but an impacted or partially erupted wisdom tooth can cause problems such as crowding or infections. If you have wisdom tooth pain, our dentists will examine your mouth and recommend whether wisdom tooth removal is appropriate. We also provide general extractions as a last resort if a damaged or decayed tooth can’t be saved or needs to be removed for other reasons.

Kelmscott Dental can also provide any treatment under sedation for nervous patients where it’s suitable.

Safe Amalgam Removal

If you have old metal fillings, these can be replaced with white fillings or crowns if you would prefer a more natural looking smile. Kelmscott Dental is an amalgam free dental clinic and our dentists are qualified to provide safe amalgam removal and replacement. Contact us to find out more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What treatments does general dentistry cover?

General dentistry refers to routine treatments to repair damaged teeth or correct other dental problems. This includes fillings, extractions and root canal therapy, as well as general check-ups and treatments for teeth grinding and TMJ disorders.

General dental vs. major dental

You may be wondering the difference between general dental and major dental when it comes to making claims on your health fund. General dental covers routine and inexpensive treatments such as fillings and extractions, while major dental covers more complex procedures such as root canal therapy and placing a crown or dental implant. We accept all health funds at Kelmscott Dental.

What is a general dentist?

A general dentist is someone who is qualified to diagnose and treat all common oral health problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, root canal infections and damaged or missing teeth. A general dentist may complete additional training and acquire registration to specialise in a particular area of dentistry.
