Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays.  This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer.  This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier.  Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.

Dental x-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam.  Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan.  Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

Children's Dentistry

A child’s first or primary teeth are of great importance. Primary teeth can help pave the way for secondary teeth, enhance speaking ability and chewing function.

As a parent you play an active part in your child’s oral wellbeing and are the ultimate role model for their dietary and oral hygiene habits. We recommend working with your child from an early age to establish healthy eating habits and good oral hygiene techniques. By setting a good example from the beginning, you can help create a healthy routine for your child’s future.

Supervising your children while they brush their teeth is a beneficial technique in establishing good oral hygiene. That way you can be sure all of those difficult spots are reached, whilst showing support for this important step. A balanced diet, with children consuming foods from all sections of the healthy food pyramid, can also help to prevent decay while strengthening and protecting teeth.

Preventative Dentistry

Preventive Dentistry aims to reduce the required dental restorations in your lifetime. This process allows you to keep your beautiful, vibrant smile whilst still maintaining the healthy structure of your teeth and gums.

Keeping your teeth for the rest of your life with minimal intervention is extremely important. Preventive care minimises your risk of developing tooth decay and Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease).

Mastering the art of good dental hygiene is a fundamental component of Preventive Dentistry care. Preventive care is beneficial to patients of all ages and should begin as early as possible. It is essential that all members of your family are educated in the techniques required to attain good dental health. It is never too late or too early in life to begin good dental hygiene.

Sealants

Are you worried about tooth decay? Smile Xtreme provides a range of adult dental treatments including dental sealants.

Sealants are a minimally invasive dental treatment, which can help to prevent decay. Applied to the chewing surface of a tooth, Sealants stop decay causing bacteria from actually reaching teeth.

Sealants protect the most vulnerable areas of teeth - places where a toothbrush just cannot reach! Created from plastic materials, Sealants are utilised on the premolars and molars. The plastic material bonds to the grooves of teeth, acting as a barrier for plaque and tartar. Sealants help to protect the enamel of teeth whilst preventing decay.

Sealants are a simple dentistry treatment, which require only one consultation. During your treatment, the premolars and molars will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Once the bonding material has been applied, the Sealants are then bonded onto the natural biting surface of teeth. Your dentist or hygienist checks the Sealants at routine dental check-ups and will reapply where necessary.
