What is a filling?
The fillings that we use at iDental are made from composite resin materials or porcelain, depending on the problem. The best filling will repair damage and and improve the appearance of both the tooth and your smile.
What happens at a child's dental visit?
Kids learn how to brush their teeth and also what is involved with a dental visit from an early age. We encourage you to bring your children from the age of 3. We are friendly and accomodating, so we only do what your child will let us do. This might take a few visits to get to cleaning, and that is okay. Our friendly team will work to ensure your child’s dental visits are fun, and that their teeth, facial bones and dental arch are developing properly.
How often should I visit a dentist?
Generally most people should visit every six months for a checkup and clean. Once every two years we will likely take routine dental xrays, and once every 5 years a medicare-covered full mouth X-ray (OPG).
However, as dental needs vary, we’ll closely evaluate and monitor your oral health, and customise our care to perfectly meet your needs. At the end of each appointment, we should have a good idea of when we’ll need to see you again.
