We encourage you to take care of your oral health, which is why we recommend regular check-ups. During these appointments, we will thoroughly examine and professionally clean your teeth and gums, leaving your mouth feeling fresh and healthy. The frequency of your check-ups may vary depending on your individual needs, and we are more than happy to provide guidance on scheduling your visits. If you have any concerns and would like to see one of our dentists before your scheduled appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us and arrange a visit. You can also directly book a check-up with one of our specially trained hygienists. They will assess your teeth and gums and provide any assistance or advice you require to maintain effective oral hygiene. If you wish to be accompanied by a relative or friend during your examination, kindly inform us upon your arrival, and we will gladly accommodate your request.

  • Stage 1: Consultation (Full Assessment). Our dentists will address any oral health concerns you may have. They will conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums, mouth, and the surrounding tissues of your face and neck. Your general health, dental history, and social habits will also be taken into consideration. If necessary, X-rays and scans will be performed.
  • Stage 2: Identifying Significant Issues. Should our dentists detect any issues requiring further treatment, they will discuss them with you. You will be informed about the benefits, risks, and procedures associated with the treatment options, and a personalized treatment plan will be provided.
  • Stage 3: General Maintenance. To maintain overall oral health, we recommend scaling and polishing of your teeth and gums, airflow stain removal, and/or topical fluoride treatments.
  • Stage 4: Advice You will receive guidance on optimal oral health practices and be advised on how frequently you should attend dental check-ups.

Check-Up Intervals

The recommended intervals are typically every 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, or 24 months, depending on your dental health status.


Dental Hygiene Scaling and Polishing

Preventative maintenance for your smile

  • Dental Hygiene and Cleaning Scaling and polishing is a dental procedure designed to eliminate unwanted deposits such as dental plaque and calculus (commonly known as tartar) from the surfaces of your teeth. These deposits accumulate from daily meals and are considered part of general dental care in Australia.
  • The scaling procedure involves the removal of tartar and plaque that adheres to your teeth. Plaque is a soft, waxy, yellowish substance that naturally builds up on teeth over time. Plaque bacteria eventually hardens into yellow or brown tartar, which cannot be eliminated with regular brushing alone. That’s why professional dental equipment is necessary to remove it.
  • Following the thorough removal of plaque and tartar through scaling, the polishing procedure is performed to give your teeth a smooth finish.
  • During the polishing process, any stains that have accumulated on your teeth over time are removed, leaving them bright and naturally shiny at the conclusion of the treatment. This procedure effectively cleans your teeth, resulting in a brighter smile, improved oral health, and increased tooth longevity. It is strongly recommended to visit the dentist every six months to maintain optimal oral health.

Topical Flouride Treatment

Topical Fluoride Treatment is a dental procedure that utilizes fluoride, a mineral known for its ability to strengthen tooth enamel. This treatment plays a crucial role in preventing dental caries by slowing down their development or halting their progression.

In conjunction with receiving topical fluoride treatment, it is vital to incorporate daily flossing, regular dental check-ups, and a nutritious diet to maintain optimal oral health and hygiene.


A dental filling is a necessary procedure performed to repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay or caries. Its purpose is to restore the tooth’s normal function and maintain its shape.

The choice of filling type depends on several factors, including:

  1. The location where the filling is needed.
  2. The extent of repair required for the decay.
  3. Your preference regarding the visibility of the filling.

As the name suggests, these fillings are directly placed into the tooth and may be crafted within your mouth, ensuring a customized fit.

What are dental fillings? Dental fillings, also known as tooth fillings, are artificial restorations commonly used to treat and restore damaged teeth to their original function and appearance.

Dental fillings are necessary when there are cavities resulting from tooth decay or tooth fractures/chips. It’s important to note that you don’t have to wait for a hole to develop before dental fillings are required. Early signs such as sensitivity to cold or sweet foods, persistent toothaches, or frequent food impaction may indicate the need for a filling.

During the procedure, your dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth, cleans the damaged area, and fills the clean cavity with a filling material.

This effective procedure prevents further decay by eliminating the extra space inside the tooth where bacteria can multiply.

Tooth decay is one of the most common reasons for needing a filling. Removing the decayed portion of the tooth is crucial to prevent further damage. If left untreated, it can lead to more invasive treatments like root canal treatment or tooth extraction.

After cleaning the cavity, a filling is placed to seal and protect the remaining tooth, restoring its form, shape, and function. In cases where the cavity is extensive, your dentist may recommend a crown or onlay.

Chipped or Broken Teeth Fillings can also be used to repair and protect chipped or broken teeth. These conditions expose the inner layers of the teeth, making them susceptible to plaque buildup and subsequent tooth decay.

Worn Teeth Teeth can become significantly worn down due to factors such as tooth grinding, reflux disease, or an erosive diet. Dentists can use tooth-colored composite filling material to rebuild the lost tooth structure and protect the remaining teeth.

Tooth Abnormalities Dental fillings can restore and protect specific tooth abnormalities, such as mineral-deficient or small teeth.

Dysfunctional Bite Fillings can be added to the chewing surfaces of some teeth to create a more even and balanced bite, promoting harmony and functionality.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment, an endodontic procedure, is performed to eliminate bacteria from an infected root canal, prevent re-infection of the tooth, and protect the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. It is a common procedure in Singapore.

This treatment is typically required when there is a change in the tooth structure, such as a cracked tooth from injury or genetics, tooth decay, a deep cavity, or issues related to a previous filling.

During the procedure, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected. It is then filled and sealed with a sterile rubber filling, effectively preventing pain and further infection in the root canal.

Inside your tooth, beneath the enamel and dentin, lies the pulp tissue. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue, which aid in the development of the tooth’s root. A fully-developed tooth can survive without the pulp, as it continues to be nourished by the surrounding tissues.

Consultation – Assessment of Condition

Your dentist will conduct an X-ray of the tooth root and perform a pulp vitality test to determine the need for root canal treatment and assess the severity of the condition.

Root Canal Procedure

  1. Anaesthesia: The tooth will be completely numbed with a local anaesthetic to ensure a pain-free procedure. Sedation or general anaesthesia may also be administered based on the individual treatment plan.
  2. Tooth Isolation: The specific tooth will be isolated with a protective sheet to prevent contact with the instruments and chemicals used during the procedure.
  3. Access: Access to the pulp is gained, and the root canal is shaped and cleaned.
  4. Dressing: Depending on the initial symptoms, pulp condition, and complexity of the treatment, a temporary filling may be placed for 1-2 weeks before the final root canal filling.
  5. Root Canal Filling: Once the tooth is symptom-free and ready, a permanent root canal filling is placed and confirmed with an X-ray.
  6. Filling, Onlay, or Crown: A well-sealed restoration, such as a filling, inlay, or crown, is recommended to ensure the success of the root canal treatment.

Post Operative Care

It is normal to experience soreness and tenderness in the jaw area after the root canal procedure. Most patients recover within a few days, but it may take up to 2-3 weeks in rare cases.


A dental crown is a custom-made cap or covering that is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth to strengthen and protect it. It covers the entire visible portion of the tooth, extending from the gum line to the biting surface. Dental crowns are commonly used to restore teeth with significant decay, fractures, or those that have undergone root canal treatment.

The main purposes of a dental crown are to strengthen the tooth, protect it from further damage, and improve its appearance, shape, and alignment. By fully encasing the damaged tooth, a crown provides stability and durability, allowing for comfortable biting and chewing.

Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of materials. The choice of material depends on factors such as the location of the tooth, the patient’s aesthetic preferences, and functional requirements.

You may need dental crowns if your teeth have significant decay, wear, fractures, developmental abnormalities, cracks, have undergone a root canal treatment, have been replaced with dental implants, or if you desire a smile makeover to address issues with color, shape, or alignment.

Stage 1: Consultation and Pre-Treatment

During the consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth, address your concerns, and may take X-rays or perform pulp tests. If a crown is recommended, your dentist will discuss the types of crowns available and decide on the most suitable option based on your condition and expectations.

Pre-treatment preparations may include placing a core filling material to restore large gaps in the tooth or gum contouring to ensure proper placement of the crown.

Stage 2: Crown Procedure

The crown procedure typically involves two appointments. The first visit involves preparing the tooth and taking measurements, while the second visit is for fitting the crown.

Crown Preparation The relevant tooth will be numbed with a local anesthetic. Superficial parts of the tooth are then removed to create space for the crown. An intraoral scan or mold is taken and sent to a dental laboratory to construct the crown. If a porcelain-fused-to-metal or full ceramic crown is chosen, you may select the color with your dentist. A temporary crown is placed to protect the prepared tooth while the final crown is being made.

Stage 3: Crown Fit

During the crown fit appointment, the temporary crown is removed, and the final permanent crown is tried on. It is checked for proper fit, bite harmony, and overall appearance. Minor adjustments may be made, and once finalized, the crown is sealed in place with cement. Local anesthesia is typically not needed for this step.

Stage 4: Post-Operative Care

After the crown is placed, you will be provided with instructions on how to care for it and maintain oral health. Well-made and well-maintained crowns can last for many years or even a lifetime with proper care. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are important to ensure the longevity of the crown.


A dental bridge is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by bridging the gap between existing teeth or dental implants. It consists of artificial teeth called pontics and supporting dental crowns known as abutments.

Stage 1: Consultation and Pre-Treatment

During the consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth, address your concerns, and may take X-rays, measurements, or perform pulp tests. They will inform you if a dental bridge or other treatment options are suitable for your situation. If a bridge is decided upon, the types of bridges will be discussed and chosen based on your condition and expectations.

Pre-treatment preparations may include placing core filling material to restore gaps in the supporting teeth or gum contouring to ensure the bridge can be securely placed.

Stage 2: Bridge Procedure

The bridge procedure typically requires two appointments, the first for preparations or refinements and measurements, and the second for fitting the bridge.

Bridge Preparation The relevant supporting teeth will be numbed with a local anesthetic. If necessary, superficial parts of the supporting teeth will be removed to create space and margins for the bridge. An intraoral scan or mold of the supporting teeth and the gap will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory to construct the bridge. You can choose the specific color of the bridge with your dentist. A temporary bridge or denture will be made to replace the gap while the final bridge is being fabricated.

Stage 3: Bridge Fit

During the bridge fit appointment, the temporary bridge is removed, and the final bridge is tried in to ensure a secure fit, harmony with your bite and neighboring teeth, and satisfactory color and appearance. Minor refinements may be made, and once finalized, the bridge is sealed in place on the supporting teeth with cement. Local anesthesia is typically not needed for this step.

Stage 4: Post-Operative Care

You will be provided with instructions on how to care for your bridge, including the use of a special bridge floss threader. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups are essential to maintain the longevity of the bridge. Well-made and well-maintained bridges can potentially last many years or even a lifetime.
