What We Do
Time for a check-up?
There is a lot you can do to help with the health of your teeth and gums. It is a great idea to have check-ups every six months to make sure your teeth are healthy.
Our professional staff will thoroughly check every aspect of your dental health. This may include the need for dental X-rays.
Keeping a careful eye on your smile is the best way to ensure your dental health in the years to come. Our staff can also help you with a management program for the care of your teeth and gums to prevent problems in the future.
Our Dental Services
Your teeth might need a little more than a regular clean and polish. Gunnedah Dental Centre can provide a treatment that will enhance the appearance and the colour of your teeth, and make the most of your smile!
If your teeth need a bit of extra help, we offer a number of services. You may need a fluoride application to protect your tooth enamel and help fight bacteria. Tough teeth are healthy teeth.
We also offer fissure sealants – a treatment that can prove particularly effective in protecting young teeth. Fissure sealants are thin coatings that help prevent tooth decay.
When part of your tooth isn’t what it used to be or is missing altogether, fillings are a must. They are the most common type of restorative dentistry and help you keep both the shape, and the good health of your teeth.
A badly damaged tooth can sometimes be saved through root canal treatment. Root canal treatment cleans out the diseased pulp, reshapes the canal and makes it possible to keep your tooth healthy – and stop the spread of infection.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers your existing damaged, decayed or cracked tooth. It restores your tooth to its original size, shape and strength, and can enhance your smile!
If you are missing one or more teeth, a bridge could be the best solution. A bridge builds a prosthetic tooth or teeth and attaches them to your existing teeth. This can help fill in gaps in your smile, and assist with chewing.
Dental implants are another permanent solution to missing teeth and can look very natural. A titanium screw takes the place of the tooth’s root, and anchors the new “tooth” – a carefully shaped crown – in place.
Invisalign treatment gently moves your teeth for a straighter smile. It uses a series of clear plastic removable orthodontic aligners.
Sports and leisure activities are a common cause of dental injuries. You can ensure your teeth or your children’s teeth are protected with a properly fitted mouthguard.
If you need extensive tooth replacement, dentures might be the solution for you. Dentures can replace missing teeth and adjacent tissues and are a temporary or permanent answer for people of all ages.
Wisdom tooth removal
Wisdom teeth can be the last and the most difficult of all teeth. If they bring problems, they may need to be removed. Gunnedah Dental Centre can remove wisdom teeth in the most professional and gentle way possible.
Problems with your gums? A periodontist specialises in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of advanced periodontal disease. We provide a range of surgical and non-surgical procedures including placement and maintenance of dental implants.
