Routine Dental Check-up

Regular Check-Up

Regular check-ups (once every 6 months) allow us to assess a patient’s oral health, and, where necessary, take preventative action to ensure minor concerns don’t turn into big issues. We are here to serve the needs of your entire family; from toddlers right through to the elderly. Our dentists perform a thorough examination of you and your family’s teeth, gums, and mouth, documenting any changes to overall health over time. We also use our check-up as an opportunity to discuss oral health maintenance, including better brushing techniques, dieting, and encouraging you to floss! These 6-monthly check-ups will ensure your oral health is properly managed, to save you time, money and stress in the long-term by avoiding preventable procedures.

From every check-up, your dentist will provide you with a personalised treatment plan outlining their recommendations for further action. This can include:

  • Cleaning – though you may brush up to three times a day, there will always be areas you simply cannot reach, such as at the back of your mouth, or just below the surface of your gums. Regular 6-monthly cleans will help keep your teeth & gums healthy for life!
  • Polishing – remove any plaque and stains on the tooth surface once they have been cleaned.
  • Personal maintenance – providing further advice regarding at-home care.
  • X-Rays – our dentists will require updated x-rays for new Portrush Family Dental patients. These x-rays will help them see between teeth and beneath gums and enables us to take preventative measures early, to stop any existing issues from worsening.
  • Professional treatment – if any oral health problems are identified during your examination, your dentist will propose the best next steps. Whether that is an in-clinic procedure or simply tips on maintaining your oral hygiene better at home.

Veneers

If some or all of your teeth are bothering you due to their colour, shape, size or position, veneers may be the answer. These highly aesthetic and durable porcelain facings are cemented to the front surface of your teeth while maintaining a natural look. However, during your consultation, the Portrush Family Dental team may suggest a more appropriate treatment to be used instead of or in conjunction with veneers, including;

  • Invisalign – the invisible and temporary braces solution
  • Zoom whitening
  • Home tooth-whitening kits
  • Crowns, bridges & dental implants

We always endeavour to recommend a treatment solution that will both meet your needs, and cater to your budget. Contemporary dental practices provide a new world of opportunity for dentists and patients alike; come in and talk to our team to see what we what can do to improve your smile!

Sleep Dentistry

We get it; some people find it uncomfortable visiting the dentist. However, to avoid neglecting your oral health, we can offer our patients sleep dentistry service! Commonly known as ‘conscious’ or ‘twilight’ sedation, this form of anaesthetic will put you in a calm and relaxed state and help remove your fear of the dentist. Sleep dentistry goes hand in hand with our gentle approach, and we always work to ensure that you are in the most comfortable state possible.

If you want to know whether or not sleep dentistry is a good option for you, ask yourself these questions;

  • Do you get clammy thinking about sitting in the dentist’s chair?
  • Do you dislike needles?
  • Do you have a sensitive gag reflex?
  • Do you want to have a memory-free experience?
  • Are you concerned about how long your treatment may take to complete?

If you have answered yes to any of these, it may be worth considering sleep dentistry. Our experienced anaesthetist is focused on your comfort and vital signs, while our dentists focus on completing your procedure as quickly & comfortably as possible.

Invisalign Braces

Invisalign is the modern, near-invisible alternative to traditional metal braces! As one of Adelaide’s few qualified Invisalign dentists, Principal Dentist Dr. Richard Freytag is an expert in implementing Invisalign for our patients. A consultation with Dr Freytag will help us determine whether the Invisalign treatment is the best solution for you. Invisalign is effective correcting over-bite, under-bite, overcrowded teeth, wide-spaced teeth and crossbites, and is typically the best method of transforming your smile without interfering with your day-to-day life!

During your Invisalign treatment, you will receive a series of removable aligners that you will need to upgrade as your teeth move into position. Each aligner is individually manufactured the exact dimensions of your teeth, with each one changing slightly to facilitate the gradual movement, until they have straightened completely into the final position prescribed by your dentist. This new-age teeth straightening method can replace metal braces in nearly all cases!

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Replacing individual missing teeth, broken teeth, replace unsightly dentures, or support full sets of dentures through improved stabilization and functionality is super easy with dental implants. They are the best long-term solution for missing teeth, and when properly cared for, can last for the rest of your life!

Although ill-fitting dentures can lead to shrinking of the jaw, gum ulcers, and mouth pain, dental implants can eliminate all of these problems, while also restoring your chewing ability! Portrush Family Dental will review your current condition, and implement a treatment solution that will have you smiling again in no time!

Mini Implants

Portrush Family Dental is one of just a few dental clinics who offer mini implants in South Australia. As the name suggests, these are smaller implants that are placed into the jaw to support full upper or lower dentures. They work by ensuring the denture is tightly held into place to achieve increased stability. No more worrying about your dentures falling out of your mouth, and no need consider using denture adhesives. While they are cost effective when compared with traditional implants, you will still need to remove your denture at night. Mini implants can generally be completed in 1 day, with many patients eating on their dentures on the same day!

Dental X-Rays

Dental X-Rays allow us to identify decay and other dental abnormalities with ease & greater accuracy. Our Bitewing X-Ray systems work to diagnose issues early on so we can treat existing or potential problems before they progress. We recommend dental x-rays be taken once every 2 years to ensure sufficient monitoring of your oral health.

Furthermore, Orthopantomogram (OPG) X-Rays provide us with a full mouth picture of the overall oral condition. This can be used for orthodontics, or when diagnosing other conditions that are not directly related to the teeth. The sooner we detect issues on the inside, the sooner we can begin treatment on the outside.
