General Dentistry

At Beautiful Smile Dental, we treat patients of all ages, including children and senior adults. And our general dentistry emphasises prevention—the services you and your loved ones need today to help prevent the oral health complications of tomorrow.

Preventive Dentistry in Richmond and Walkerville, SA

Our preventive dentistry services include:

  • Dental exams
  • Teeth cleans
  • Periodic x-rays

Typically, we recommend one to two preventive dental visits per year, but your dentist will provide a more customised preventive schedule based on initial exam findings.

Dental exams and x-rays uncover potential oral health issues before they become costly and time-consuming problems.

Regular teeth cleans clear away the very debris and bacteria that may lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

An excellent oral health regimen at home should always accompany your dental clinic visits. Your at-home brushing and flossing routine help keep your teeth and gums healthy between visits.

Other preventive dental services may include fluoride treatments and therapies for jaw joint dysfunction and bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching).

General Dentistry to Restore Your Oral Health

Your dentists in Walkerville and Richmond provide a variety of general dentistry services to restore your oral health when something goes wrong. These treatments can include anything from a tooth-coloured filling to restore a decayed tooth to tooth replacement treatments like dental implants or dentures.

Our general dentistry services include but are not limited to:

  • Fillings
  • Root canal therapy
  • Dental crowns
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Tooth replacement
  • Invisalign

Technology Designed to Ease and Educate

In our dental clinic, we use gentle electric handpieces, which typically means a smoother and less jarring dental treatment for you.

We also offer nitrous oxide in our Richmon location to help patients of all ages get the dental care they need without the hindrance of anxiety. Nitrous oxide is a safe gas delivered through a nose mask. It produces feelings of ease and relaxation.

Aside from comfort technologies, we also like to educate our patients about their oral health. For this, we rely on intraoral cameras. These small ink pen-shaped cameras capture close-up images of your teeth and gums. Your Walkerville or Richmond dentist projects these images onto a chairside monitor, so you have a better understanding of your diagnosis or a recommended treatment plan. This technology also allows you to make informed choices for your dental care, including any decisions about cosmetic dentistry.

At Beautiful Smile Dental, our dentists take a keen interest in innovations that contribute to patient comfort and dental health knowledge.
