What Is General Dentistry? 

General dentistry is all about keeping your smile healthy and your oral health in top shape by focusing primarily on prevention of oral issues and helping patients maintain optimal oral hygiene. 

Consisting of both preventative and restorative dentistry, our general dentistry services provide solutions for patients of all ages. Our general dentists typically offer services such as routine dental examinations, check-ups, professional dental cleaning and the treatment of gum disease

It’s safe to say general dentistry plays an important role in helping you maintain a healthy smile and improve your overall well-being. 

General Dentistry Services in Melbourne 

Your smile and oral health are our top priorities at Port Melbourne Dental clinic Therefore, we offer a wide range of general dental services at affordable prices.

Check-Ups & Examination 

Your oral health is the foundation of a pain-free, and beautiful smile. Regular dental check-ups are of great importance in maintaining proper oral health. Our dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth during your regular check-ups and identify early warning signs of dental issues. We will then develop personalised treatment plans to fix existing conditions or prevent potential dental problems that could be painful and costly to fix in the long run. 

We recommend scheduling dental check-ups every 6 months as a preventative measure to keep your oral health in check. 

Scale & Clean 

When you visit our dental practice for regular check-ups, our dentists may carry out a scale and clean which is a dental cleaning treatment that helps remove plaque and tartar deposits that are impossible to get rid of with your regular oral hygiene routine at home. A scale and clean can remove these plaque build-ups and bacteria in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth, helping avoid conditions such as tooth decay, stained teeth and gum disease that can ultimately create problems for your oral health. 

Dental Restorations & Fillings

Tooth decay, infections or damage to your teeth can leave you in pain and discomfort. It can also affect your confidence and smile. If untreated, it can spread to neighbouring teeth and may cause severe pain. At PMD Dental, we provide dental restorations to help restore your healthy smile. 

Whether you want to enhance the aesthetics of your smile, alleviate pain, or restore damaged or decayed teeth, we have the perfect solution for you. Dental fillings are a popular restorative treatment at our dental clinic. Crafted from premium materials, they offer a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for decayed or damaged teeth. 

Fissure Sealants 

This preventative dental treatment is commonly performed on children to lower the risk of tooth decay. Getting fissure sealants is a quick and straightforward procedure where a thin, protective coating is applied to the molars or the back teeth. Sealants help fill in grooves and pits on the surfaces of these teeth, which are known to be high-risk areas that can easily accumulate bacteria. This coating prevents tooth decay by eliminating the possibility of food particles getting stuck in these grooves and causing cavities. 

Wisdom Tooth Removal 

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars at the back of your mouth. If there is insufficient space in your mouth for your wisdom tooth to erupt normally, it can get impacted. Impaction is a condition where your wisdom tooth does not fully emerge from the gum line causing severe pain and discomfort towards the back of your mouth. Our quick and pain-free wisdom tooth removal services will help prevent pain and other problems caused by an impacted wisdom tooth. 

What Are The Benefits of General Dentistry? 

Preventive Dental Care

With a proactive approach, our general dental services help detect dental problems at early stages and prevent them from escalating into severe issues. Our general dentists educate patients on proper oral hygiene practices to help prevent dental conditions from arising in the first place, saving you time and money in the long run. 

Relieves Pain & Discomfort 

Dental pain can arise from various reasons, such as tooth decay, gum disease and damaged teeth. General dentistry helps alleviate pain and discomfort by accurately diagnosing underlying causes and offering effective treatments. 

Restorative Dentistry 

While prevention may not be possible in all instances, general dentistry comes to your rescue with restorative treatments when dental issues do arise. Restorative dentistry helps restore the functionality and aesthetics of your teeth. With our restorative dental solutions, such as dental implants, you can eat, speak and smile with confidence again. 

Improved Health 

Your oral health is linked to your overall health. General dentistry services help identify and treat oral health problems that can potentially lead to other health issues, such as heart disease, lung disease and diabetes. This helps keep both your oral and overall health in optimum condition. 

Customised Treatment 

Our dentists provide personalised treatment plans tailored to your unique condition and needs, ensuring the best care for your oral health.

How Much Does General Dentistry Cost in Port Melbourne?
