General and Preventive Care
At Katoomba Dental Centre, our experienced team of dentists provides the services you need to meet your family’s dental needs. We can treat you whether you need a simple check-up and clean or more complex treatment such as a root canal or extraction. You can count on us to provide gentle, caring treatment in our modern surgery.
Family Preventive Care
We welcome patients of all ages and often recommend twice-yearly visits for check-ups and cleans. This gives our dentists a chance to monitor oral health to help ensure you can avoid many common dental issues, including tooth decay and gum disease. How often you need to come to the clinic will depend on your individual needs.
At your initial examination, we will introduce you to our modern approach to dental diagnosis. We initially take an OPG x-ray, which provides with a flat view of your upper and lower jaw, as well as intra-oral images of your entire mouth, enabling us to walk you through every potential or current problem you have. We will also clean your teeth to remove surface stains and promote gum health, and we may recommend additional preventive treatments such as fluoride.
After your initial exam, we design a customised treatment plan for you, providing you with different options for treatment and the costs associated with them. We offer procedures such as root canals, extractions, gum disease treatment, dental crowns and bridges.
If your teeth and gums are healthy, perhaps you would like to make cosmetic changes to make your smile more beautiful. Once reserved for the rich and famous, there are cosmetic dentistry treatments available today to fit almost any budget. We offer teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and bonding for smiles that need a boost.
When you have teeth that are damaged or missing, it’s crucial to repair or replace them. We provide a full range of restorative dentistry services at our Katoomba surgery.
- Dental implants, dentures and bridges can replace missing teeth
- Crowns or bonding can repair damaged teeth
- Veneers can camouflage a host of problems with your smile
We use only quality dental materials for durable, attractive restorations.
Root Canal Therapy
This feared dental procedure does not deserve its unfair reputation. No worse than getting a filling, a root canal will relieve pain rather than cause it—and it will save your tooth in the process. A root canal will eliminate the infection in your tooth root, as well as any pain you are suffering because of it.
In most cases, we recommend a dental crown for the affected tooth to protect it and restore it to its full function.
If you know or suspect you might be chronically clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth, we offer treatment. This unconscious habit, called bruxism, wreaks havoc on your teeth because it wears them down. It also can cause headaches and jaw pain. We can create a customised oral appliance that is worn at night to keep you from harming your oral health.
We look forward to providing your family with the dental services they need at our Katoomba, NSW surgery. We welcome you to your Blue Mountains local dentist.
