General dentistry is the branch of dentistry that tackles common dental problems experienced by any age group.
These dental problems range from simple to complicated and may result in the need for preventative, cosmetic, and restorative services.
At A Plus Dental, we have combined experience of over 30 years and have been exposed to almost all manner of dental problems.
Our modern practice is designed with comfort in mind to keep your anxieties at bay, creating a relaxing and stress-free visit.
Below are our general dentistry services.
Wisdom tooth extraction
Wisdom teeth are found in the very back of your mouth. They are the teeth that normally grow in between the ages of 17 and 25.
Some wisdom teeth cause problems, while others might not. Most dental professionals will recommend having your wisdom teeth extracted if you experience chronic tooth pain or suffer from other related dental issues.
Root canal treatment
The interior of the tooth is comprised of a pulp chamber and a root canal that contains pulp tissue.
The pulp tissue can become infected for many reasons. Once this happens, it can cause an array of problems including pain and infection.
Root canal therapy is performed to save and restore the tooth to function.
If visiting your Campbelltown dentist makes you a little uncomfortable, or even a lot panicky, our sedation dentistry at A Plus Dental can help you stay comfortable during your treatment to ensure you get the care you need.
Our skilled dentists help patients overcome their fear and anxieties with our nitrous oxide sedation, also known as happy gas.
No matter how much we want our teeth to be whole and strong forever, sometimes things that happen that can cause them to be damaged, leading to their extraction.
We make sure that every tooth extraction is safe, secure, and painless. At A Plus Dental, we always look out for your best interests.
Diseases of the jaw
A persistent pain in the jaw coupled with a headache, may mean more than you think. You might be suffering from a disease of the jaw.
If you or your loved ones experience symptoms like these, tell your family dentist at A Plus Dental right away.
Tooth decay is among the most common dental issues and is a major cause of tooth loss in Australia. This dental condition is avoidable and can be prevented if given immediate attention. At A Plus Dental, we believe every tooth is worth saving.
If you have a toothache, see your family dentist at A Plus Dental immediately.
Gum disease treatment
Healthy gums should be pale pink, smooth, and fit your teeth firmly just like a turtleneck jumper fits your neck. Gum disease is the bacterial infection of the gums. It is the most common cause of tooth loss among adults and if untreated it can lead to life-threatening diseases.
Bad breath treatment
Halitosis is the medical term for bad breath, an aggravating dental problem affecting young and old alike. It is more than just foul breath in the morning or when you wake up; it continues throughout the day.
Unfortunately, not all sufferers know that they have it. Our nose is desensitised to our own breath and not everyone is brave enough to tell his/her friend the truth. So how can you tell if you have a bad breath? Your A Plus Dental dentist can help!
Dry mouth is the decrease of saliva supply in the mouth. When this happens, bacteria thrive and attack your teeth leading to decay, bad breath, and gum disease.
At first, the results of dry mouth are minor and not readily felt. However, delay in addressing the issue can compromise your oral health and general wellbeing.
Sensitive teeth treatment
The dental pulp serves as the centre of nourishment of the tooth. The blood vessels keep the tooth from being brittle. It also has a sensory function. When the dentin created by the pulp is exposed to temperature changes, it reacts, thereby causing pain.
When the enamel protecting the dentin is eroded, the dentin is exposed to infection and temperature changes. Hence tooth sensitivity.
