Preventive and General Dentistry
As a privately owned dental practice, our Melville family dentists, Dr Lidia and Dr Anni spend adequate time with each patient to provide individualised care for patients of every age and life stage.
Your oral health needs can vary with ageing or because of medical conditions such as diabetes, pregnancy, heart disease and more. We always approach dentistry with your current needs in mind to give you a healthy smile and a healthy body.
Personalised Preventive Dentistry
While it might seem tempting to put off regular dental exams and cleans, these routine dental visits are the most affordable way to prevent dental emergencies and tooth loss. Digital dental x-rays assist our dentists in the early diagnosis of oral conditions that can progress quickly into more costly and complex problems.
Other preventive treatments include:
Fluoride application – promotes remineralisation of tooth enamel for patients at risk for caries (decay)
Fissure sealants – provide a non-invasive treatment to create a barrier preventing bacteria in the deep grooves of teeth
Athletic mouthguards – prevent tooth and bone damage caused by sports accidents
Nightguards – stop the damage and sensitivity common for patients with bruxism (teeth grinding) behaviours
Finding a dental clinic to both serve adults and provide paediatric dentistry poses a challenge. We warmly welcome children to Melville Family Dental and work closely with parents to keep little smiles healthy and comfortable.
Custom Tooth Restorations
Repairing natural teeth can prevent tooth pain and extraction.
Fillings – repair teeth after tooth decay
Bonding – fills small chips and reshapes teeth
Crowns – protects and reinforces deeply decayed or broken teeth
Onlays and inlays – partial crowns for a conservative approach
Veneers – cover the front of natural teeth to improve aesthetics
When restoring smiles for full smile reconstruction, our dentists use a variety of treatment procedures for broken teeth, to repair short or worn teeth, and improve the bite.
