Family and General Dentistry
Patients of different ages require various types of dental care. At Clifton Hill Dental, we proudly offer dentistry to meet the need of every member of your family – from toddlers to your most senior relatives. Dr Nick Malamas and our associate dentists customise treatment to support optimal oral health at every life stage.
Paediatric dentistry is essential to form a healthy foundation for your child’s adult smile. Baby (primary or milk) teeth are the blueprint for their permanent teeth. One of the most common childhood oral disease is dental caries, or decay. Decay, while preventable, is common and most adults will have at least one instance of decay throughout their lifetimes.
We work in partnership with parents to prevent decay and gum disease and to ensure that children have normal oral maxillofacial development. We create a fun and easy-going atmosphere for kids so they never feel anxious or stressed because of their dental visits. Fluoride application and fissure sealants are common treatments to keep your family’s littlest smiles healthy.
Children are not the only ones susceptible to oral conditions that can impact dental health and overall health. The risk of periodontal (gum) disease increases with age. Recent studies show links between gum disease and heart health.
Our Clifton Hill dentists closely monitor both teeth and gums at regular check-up and clean visits to head off oral conditions before tooth loss occurs.
Digital dental x-rays promote early detection of dental conditions and help our dentists make an accurate diagnosis.
When teeth develop infection or decay or suffer from trauma, bringing them back to good health and function is often the most conservative approach to your care.
- Tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, and bonding
- Root canal treatment
- Cosmetic veneers
- Inlays and onlays
When patients face extraction or have missing teeth, dental bridges, implants, All-on4 dentures, partial dentures and traditional complete dentures provide a solution to complete the smile and restore healthy speaking and chewing function. When replacing teeth, our dentists will help you choose the most aesthetic and practical options that meet your goals.
