FAQ’s

  • Most children are ready and comfortable to see our dentist or oral health therapist for an examination at three years of age. Before this we recommend you bring your child in for a “quick look” appointment so that any obvious dental problems are detected and so that we can discuss good oral hygiene and diet in order to avoid any dental problems from occurring.

    Children who have regular examinations are more comfortable when visiting their dentist, have fewer dental problems and develop good habits that then continue throughout their life.

    We understand that many of our patients have questions before they make an appointment. If you have a question, please call our friendly team on 8264 3355.

  • At St Agnes Dental we recommend that most people have their teeth examined every 6 months. Regular appointments are essential in preventing dental problems, maintaining the health of your teeth and gums, and catching any dental problems in their early stages.

    It is recognized that 6 monthly examinations of the mouth and teeth are essential. At St Agnes Dental we recognize that some people are unable to attend 6 monthly due to financial and/or time restraints. We are very happy to discuss and set up a recall schedule that suits your needs and circumstances. Please feel free to discuss this with any of our dental professionals.

  • Dental problems often do not cause any pain or discomfort in their early stages. Decay may be present between teeth, under fillings or around crowns but not be visible when your teeth are examined. X-rays, or dental radiographs, are an essential part in diagnosing dental problems. Bitewing radiographs are taken, usually every 2 years, to allow us to see the areas where problems might be hiding.

    A St Agnes Dental we have invested in the latest most advanced technology available in digital radiography. This provides you with the lowest exposure doses possible and provides us with the clearest most accurate images available.

  • • Regular dental visits are important because they help to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

    • Your dental professional will check the teeth for cavities and fractures and to see if there is plaque and tartar present. If plaque and tartar build up around your teeth, they cause diseases.

    • You gum are also checked. Our hygienists are available and are specially trained to treat the gums. The gums act as the foundations of your teeth and if neglected may lead to jaw bone disease.

    • During an examination we also check the inside of your mouth and your tongue. This is to identify any areas of concern such as swellings, infections and cancer.

  • At St Agnes Dental our philosophy is to help you achieve your goals comfortably and affordably, and one of the many ways we do this is through our beliefs in preventive dentistry. Through careful attention to dental hygiene and a regular programme of active maintenance visits, our aim is to prevent problems from occurring in the first place – relieving you of the need for potentially costly treatment in the future.

    Dental disease can be prevented. Effective home plaque control techniques help prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Preventive early intervention and education will improve your oral health and general health. Gum disease has direct links with diabetes, heart disease and, in pregnancy, with low birth weight.
