The foundation of good health is laid in the oral cavity. As simplistic as it may seem, a constant infection in the mouth, whether it be of the gums or of the teeth, does not place you in a good position to keep the rest of your body in good condition.
At South Coast Aesthetics and Dental we believe strongly in good foundations. We encourage early visits to the dentist for children so we can help instill good dietary habits, excellent oral hygiene skills and build a good relationship between the patient and the dentist. We like to see our patients for a regular check-up and cleaning appointment so that we can assist the patient in getting to a maintenance phase, where there is nothing wrong in their mouth and all we have to do is keep an eye on it. We are working towards the ideal world where there is no toothache and everyone loves coming to the dentist!
Our offering for general dentistry starts with a check- up with a full mouth x ray. It will result in a discussion of your individual oral health requirements in the form of a treatment plan. From the treatment planning stage, the patient then has an idea of what is required to restore their mouth to a place where all problems are dealt with, and they can choose where they want to start.
We also offer fillings, cleaning, and root canals should such be required. Although no one likes to lose a tooth, we also offer extractions should there be no option to save the tooth, and will always endeavor to offer you options to replace any missing teeth as the consequences of missing teeth cannot be overemphasized.
At South Coast Aesthetics and Dental you can always be assured of the highest standards in professional care, hygiene standards and personal care.
Visiting your dentist every 6 months to have a professional cleaning and full mouth check-up is recommended to enable us to stay ahead of any problems that you may encounter with your mouth.
Your comfort and health are our main concerns, and we go the extra mile to ensure that any dental anxiety is the furthest thing from your mind.
Comprehensive treatment planning
When you request a check-up, we will have a look at your entire mouth and make sure that you know exactly what how we can work with you to go where you want to take your mouth, whether it be to maintain or completely make over, you will get an in depth analysis and costing.
Full mouth digital x ray
We have a digital Panoramic x-ray system on site, that way you have images of the best quality instantly available to view or to send. The x-ray in the surgeries is also digital, minimising radiation exposure and making diagnosis easier and faster.
Metal free fillings
All fillings are done with metal free material, making sure they not only look good, but do no harm to your health either.
Root Canal with BioRoot
Root canal has a bad reputation, but we are working hard to change that. We use BioRoot in the sealing process, which has fantastic properties such as being bioactive, offering an outstanding seal against bacteria, and promotes mineralization of dentine.
Pain free injection techniques
We pride ourselves on making any necessary injections painless, using a gel to first numb the gum, and then using techniques that will make sure it is over before you realise it has begun.
Used during the cleaning process, an ultrasonic scaler ensures superior removal of plaque and hard calculus build ups.
Optional Fluoride application
Fluoride is used sparingly and applied only to the enamel of the tooth structure, to ensure minimal contact with the membranes of the mouth and eliminate absorption into the body.
Although we will try our best to ensure that your teeth stay in your mouth, should it become necessary to remove a tooth your comfort and safety is our primary concern. Should the extractions be too invasive to be done in the rooms, they can be done under general anaesthetic at a nearby day hospital.
