Service Overview

When you think of a visit to the dentist, you usually think of checkups, cleaning, and fillings. But did you know that an array of services fall under the banner of general dentistry?

Your general dentist is your primary care dental provider and looks after your overall oral health. A visit to your dentist regularly can help you maintain adequate oral hygiene, as well as identify and treat any issues that may arise. You may be wondering what exactly is included within general dentistry – we’ve put together a brief guide of services below to help you.

Teeth Filling

Tooth fillings are unpleasant but are a necessary part of treating tooth decay. Your general dentist will use x-rays to determine the depth of the decay and advise the level of treatment required. For small holes, your general dentist can place a filling that will minimise the risk of further decay, infections, and bacteria build-up.
