Implants

Implants

Dental implants have revolutionized how we can help solve your tooth loss. They are the gold standard for tooth replacements as they effectively replace the missing tooth root, solving tooth loss at the source. Not only do they replace the missing teeth, they improve the lifespan of remaining teeth due to the support they provide. Traditional restorative treatments such as dentures or dental bridges have various disadvantages, which have been overcome with dental implants.

Oral Surgery & Tooth Removal

Oral Surgery & Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth normally erupt between the ages of 18 to 24 years. It is common for wisdom teeth to be impacted, meaning there is no space for them to erupt. The impacted tooth causing problems needs to be extracted, but so does its opposing tooth. Dentists at Unley Park Dental Clinic will discuss the best treatment options involving the extraction after a thorough assessment. It is also important to know the possible complications associated with the procedure, which will be explained further when you visit us.

Treatment under Intravenous (IV) Sedation

Treatment under Intravenous (IV) Sedation

Intravenous sedation in dentistry is very safe and highly effective. It is also known as twilight sedation, sleep dentistry or twilight anaesthesia. A combination of intravenous anaesthetic, sedative and pain relieving medications is administered to create a very sleepy and pleasant dream-like state for the whole procedure so that you will be relaxed, comfortable and unaware of your surroundings while maintaining the ability to breathe on your own, move and able to follow instructions. Patients often comment that the whole procedure has passed in only a few minutes when in reality it may have been several hours.

Tooth Whitening

Relative Analgesia
(Happy Gas)

Relative Analgesia
(Happy Gas)

Relative analgesia is a very safe and commonly used calming procedure in our dental practice utilizing nitrous oxide (also known as happy gas) and oxygen. It will make your dental visit a relaxing and calming experience. Not only is it safe for children, the laughing gas is a preferred sedation method for children who are nervous or anxious about a pending procedure. With a short recovery time and no after-effects, you should be able to get on with your day.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

At Unley Park Dental Clinic, we use porcelain veneers as a conservative alternative to crowns. The porcelain shells are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They are also colour matched so you will be guaranteed a healthy, natural looking smile. Before we determine if you are a suitable candidate to receive veneer, we will give your mouth a comprehensive assessment. Any underlying concerns will need to be addressed before receiving your porcelain veneers. This includes any decay, tooth damage, missing teeth or severely crooked teeth.

Crown & Bridge Work

Crown & Bridge Work

If your teeth are weak, chipped or otherwise damaged, the dentists at Unley Park Dental may be able to use a tooth crown or dental bridge to restore your smile and your dental health. Porcelain tooth crowns and dental bridges look completely natural, mimicking the look of your natural teeth to blend in flawlessly. Once a tooth is strengthened by a crown, its full function is restored. This means no more painful biting, chewing or speaking.

Dentures

Dentures

Sometimes, people are missing teeth due to periodontal disease, decay, trauma or genetic defects. Dentists will coordinate with our local lab to design the dentures. Dentures can be used successfully to replace missing teeth. Whether it’s a partial or complete set of dentures, they are designed to fit nicely in the mouth to facilitate eating, talking and smiling. While dentures remain an option to replace missing teeth, there are also other options such as dental implants and root canal treatment.

Tooth Coloured Fillings

Tooth Coloured Fillings

When decay forms, it is necessary to receive a filling to stop the spread and to regain the strength of your original tooth. A filling procedure is simple and effectivve; we simply remove the decayed area of the tooth with a special tool, clean the area and flush out any bacteria. We will then fill the hole with a safe, tooth-coloured material made from composite resin. Most cases are considered to be pain-free and there is no real downtime afterwards.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is performed when the internal pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected due to tooth decay, a crack, excessive fillings or trauma to the tooth. All of these scenarios allow bacteria to enter the internal pulp causing infection. In order to salvage the tooth, endodontic treatment otherwise known as root canal therapy can be performed, in order to get rid of the infection. Contact Unley Park Dental Clinic as soon as possible if you are suffering from severe toothache, sensitivity to hot or cold food or drinks or swelling of the gums surrounding the painful tooth.

Kids and families

Getting children to enjoy a visit the dentist can be a challenge. The professional staff at Unley Park Dental Clinic are parents too – so they make a big effort to create an enjoyable experience for kids whilst also educating them about the importance of good oral hygiene.  There’s a lucky dip too – just no lollies in it though!
