We provide comprehensive family and general dentistry for patients of all ages, from toddlers and teenagers to adults and older adults. Our kind and compassionate dental team strives to make every patient’s experience a pleasant one. For patients who experience dental fear and anxiety, we offer mild sedation for a more relaxing, low-stress visit.

Routine Preventive Dentistry 

Routine dental exams and cleans allow us to assist patients in preventing or treating decay and gum disease. 

In addition to regularly scheduled dental exams and cleans, we offer:

  • Nutritional counselling 
  • Smoking cessation support
  • Home dental hygiene practices
  • Scale and clean
  • Gum therapies 

At your initial dentistry appointment, one of our dentists will sit down with you to chat about your oral health needs and goals.

The first visit is also an opportunity to get to know each other and establish a patient-doctor relationship. The dentist starts the appointment by reviewing oral health and medical histories and discussing any present or developing concerns.

Dental Exams and Diagnostic Imaging

We then take non-invasive, up-to-date digital dental x-rays and diagnostic images of the entire oral cavity. Diagnostics help us check for any underlying issues (e.g. deep decay), monitor structural development and form a base-level understanding of the patient’s oral health.

Our dentists display these images on our high-resolution chairside monitors so patients and doctors can discuss the findings. Next, we perform a thorough oral evaluation to check for visible signs of decay, gum disease and other concerns.

Our confidential digital records help us track changes to one’s oral health and can be easily transmitted to other healthy specialists or for insurance purposes if needed.

Gentle Teeth Cleans at Clifton Hill Dental

During a patient’s first visit, we may have time to conduct a teeth clean. We carefully remove all signs of plaque and tartar to prevent decay and gum disease using specialised dentistry tools.

Next, we perform a toothpaste cleaning to clear away all other debris and bacteria, followed by expert flossing and rinsing. Finally, we sometimes apply a fluoride treatment to help protect the teeth against cavities.
