We believe in the importance of discussing all options available to you as a patient when evaluating your case. That is informed consent.
For example when trying to save teeth that are either badly broken down through dental decay & nerve infection, we will inform you of possible risk factors & possible complications during root canal therapy. Risks that you should be aware of to help you decide on whether an extraction may be a better option followed by artificial replacement of that tooth.
We believe in the patient’s right to have an accurate quotation of “how much will it cost you “& this must be discussed & estimate of fees given to the patient .
Screening for gum disease is included when you come in for your consultation & some of the signs we look for vary from bleeding or swollen gums, soreness or redness or gums that have shrunk from the teeth, even bad breath & bad taste in the mouth will indicate action should be undertaken.
“Start early, Start right” are the fundamentals of oral care for kids. Our practice emphasizes the need for parents to set a good example by bringing in their kids as early as possible as healthy teeth are a key to a healthy childhood. Parents should encourage & motivate their young ones to brush their teeth & praise them for doing so. That will ensure a bright future with a bright smile.
High on the agenda of Arncliffe Dental Care is orthodontic care. It’s never too late to have your smile & teeth improved & more adults these days are able to achieve beautiful results with fixed braces. Due to developments in technology, the braces & other appliances used today are more comfortable & effective than ever before particularly the newer porcelain brackets.
Of course we prefer to start with the early generation as early treatment may prevent orthodontic problems from getting worse. It may result in shorter & less complicated form of treatment than that required at a later stage. Also early treatment of a serious problem may achieve results that are not possible once the face & jaws have stopped growing.
