As a family dentist in Hobart, we have a full range of state of the art diagnostic tools and believe preventative care is essential to lifelong oral health.
We have a full range of diagnostic tools available in practice. These include; an intra-oral digital camera, caries detecting Diagnodent laser device, lower dosage in-surgery digital x-ray units and a controlled low dosage OPG scanning x-ray unit.
These tools assist us in diagnosing any problems with your oral health. We can then use this information to discuss your treatment options and work with you to select the best treatment for your needs.
Our practice is firm in our belief that preventative care is essential to lifelong oral fitness, and we work hard to establish a strong foundation for you. Our very experienced dental hygienists are crucial in creating that foundation. We use periodontal analysis and recording (a system of charting the health of your gums and soft tissues) before scaling and cleaning as required. We also provide oral hygiene instruction and dietary counselling where required, and we have a comprehensive range of oral health products to assist in maintaining your dental health.
The Australia Dental Association recommends that people visit their dentist for an evaluation a minimum of twice each year. We provide comprehensive evaluations to all our clients regularly.
A fissure sealant is a “plastic” coating that is bonded to the surface of a tooth and is a very effective way to help children and teens prevent tooth decay.
Mouthguards and Nightguards
Protect your teeth with custom-fitted mouthguards and nightguards.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy involves the tissue inside the tooth, commonly called the “nerve” or the dental pulp, which is the living part inside each of your teeth.
Periodontic treatment concerns the gums and bone that support your teeth. Care of the tissues is at the basis of our oral health program.
