Services We Provide

We provide many exciting services that will leave you with a bright, healthy smile on your face!

Preventive examination and care

When it comes to keeping your teeth and smile for life, prevention is the best form of oral health care. Preventive examination helps us to detect dental problems early before it becomes a painful emergency, needing complex and costly dental treatments.

Your preventive care involves:

  • Examining the health of your teeth and gum
  • Reviewing the functioning of your chewing muscle and bite
  • mouth cancer screening,
  • assessing the impact of your medical conditions on your oral health
  • digital x-rays
  • professional cleaning and removal stains
  • application of preventive cream
  • and assist with your home care and habits

We recommended that you have regular preventive care and clean every 6 to 12 months.

Kid's Dentistry

A great early dental experience is important to kids as they grow. First dental visit for your child starts usually at 2 years or earlier if you a concerned. At first visit, we ensure kids have positive and fun dental experience and allow to them familiarise with the settings at Alexandra Dental Clinic.

We aim to introduce good dental habits at an early age to protect the little teeth that form the foundation.

We support the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.  CDBS is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years that provides up to $1000 in benefits to the child for basic dental services. We Bulk Bill our patients who qualify for it.

Emergency Care

Here, at Alexandra Dental Clinic, we understand that accidents happen when least expected. That’s why, we reserve time for emergency care so that toothaches, broken teeth and dental injuries can be attended promptly.

 

Dental First Aid: How to handle a dental emergency

General and Cosmetic dentistry

General dentistry covers all the essential dental services to ensure that your teeth and gum remain healthy and functional without discomfort.

 

Periodontal (gum) treatment


Healthy gums are generally pink and don’t bleed on brushing and flossing. However, if gums and tissues that holds the teeth in the place become inflamed and infected, it can lead to painful gums, smelly breath, bad taste, abscess and mobility and loss of teeth. Periodontal therapy aims to stop the progression of gum disease and restored colour and health of gum tissue.

 

Root canal therapy

Due to decay, trauma or damage to tooth, the nerve and blood vessels inside of the tooth can become irritated and infected, causing you toothache and abscess. Root canal therapy aims to remove the irritated or infected tissues and disinfect the inside of the tooth, thus, allowing you to keep your tooth. Generally, your own tooth is much stronger and functions more efficiently during eating.

 

Crown and Bridges

At times, teeth that are badly damaged or constantly breaking need to be protected from further damage and need to be strengthened for chewing. Crown is “a cap” that circles the remaining tooth and keep integrity of the tooth.

Bridge is aids to replace one or more missing teeth by having an artificial tooth attached to crowns placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap.

 

Improving your smile

If brighter and refreshing smile is your desire, we offer teeth whitening as well as other aesthetic dental treatment. If you would like to discuss about your smile, we can review your desires and needs with variety treatment options that are available including teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants and crown and bridges. We work closely with specialist team for your desire outcomes.

Teeth whitening

A Take Home whitening lets to whiten your teeth in comfort of your own home to match your lifestyle. This has been shown to be most inexpensive, safest and effective way to whiten your teeth It improve appearance of discoloured teeth and removes surface stains such as tea, coffee and wines.

Customised clear trays are made to fit around your teeth that holds the whitening gels. These trays are worn for one to two hours for a fortnight during the initial period leaving you with a refreshed and bright smile.

Sedation

For some, dental treatment can be frightening and stressful thought.  Often, avoid going to dentist till too late.  We want to make your visit worry-free and comfortable as possible.  So, we have introduced “Happy Air” sedation at Alexandra Dental Clinic.

Also known as ‘laughing gas’, it can help make your dental experience a more relaxed and stressed free.  It greatly reduces your fear, anxiety, pain and memory of the treatment experienced.  Thus, it frequently used for nervous individuals, young kids and complex dental treatment.

If you are nervous or worried about going to the dentist, talk to us about sedation at your next dental visit.

Mouthguard

If your kids or yourself play contact sport, it’s important to wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth from serious dental injuries.

Mouthguards can protect you from facial injuries such as broken jaws, cut lips and fractured or knocked-out teeth.  A custom-fitted mouthguard can absorb and spread the impact of the hard blow to your face, protecting your jaw and teeth.

A custom-fitted mouthguard, made by your dentist, is far superior to an over-the-counter (including boil-and-bite) mouthguard.  A custom fitted mouthguard fits comfortably around the teeth, more resilient, won’t fall out during play, allows normal speech, and won’t restrict your breathing.
