Though you may have impeccable oral habits at home, your teeth and mouth can still be at risk for health issues. With regular visits to Crown Dental Group, we can detect and treat problems early to keep you healthy in the long run.
We Keep Our Patients Informed and In Control
The team at Crown Dental Group is committed to keeping you informed and in control throughout the entire treatment process. We think that involving you in your care is one of the best ways to help you feel emotionally invested in your oral health. We will carefully explain all of your options so you can make a well-informed decision moving forward with your treatment. Please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you may have. We want to make sure that you feel completely comfortable and educated before committing to any treatment.
Our process of evaluation and treatment planning is very thorough and well thought out. We will take all the necessary time to analyse your oral health, your needs and your preferences to customise the right treatment plan for you.
What to Expect at a Regular Dental Visit
We recommend that you have a dental check-up every 6 months, though we may advise you to see us at a different frequency depending on your condition and history.
What to expect during a dental check-up?
There are several aspects to a thorough routine check-up at Crown Dental Group:
Professional clean and polishing
Using specialised instruments, your dentist scrapes and removes tartar, calculus and stains from your teeth.
Oral hygiene care education
We’ll give you instructions and guidelines about properly cleaning your teeth and gums and keeping them healthy.
Teeth, mouth and gums are evaluated for any changes or signs of dental issues. If any are present, we may suggest a particular treatment.
Radiographs allow us to look deeper into your oral health for problems such as decay, gum disease or cysts.

Crown Dental Group is affiliated with Gem Visa. We offer patients 12-month, interest-free financing on treatment plans that are above $2000.
On-site dental laboratory
We are proud to have an on-site laboratory that provides our patients with outstanding, quality restorations. This means that the dentist and the dental prosthetist work very closely with the lab technicians to create beautiful custom-made dental appliances. The on-site lab also means that treatment can progress faster because work is begun on your restoration as soon as it is prescribed, and adjustments and repairs to the restoration can be completed on the day of your appointment.
Dentist open Saturdays
We know many of our patients juggle crazy, busy schedules. That’s why, in addition to our Monday-Friday hours, we’re also open on Saturdays from 9am-2pm.
A soft bristle toothbrush with a small and flexible head is super effective in removing food debris without damaging the enamel or gums.
If you brush your teeth too hard, there is a risk that you can cause your gums to recede as well as damaging the enamel on the teeth.
To achieve the best results when cleaning your teeth, angle your toothbrush 45-degrees and brush in a circular motion.
It is fairly simple to get your mouth clean and healthy and keep it that way. A simple routine can help prevent most dental problems.
- Be sure to brush your teeth at night and at least one other time during the day
- Clean between your teeth with ‘interdental’ brushes or floss at least once a day
- Try to adopt good eating habits – having sugary foods and drinks less often
- Maintain regular dental check-ups
Most people brush regularly but many don’t clean between their teeth and some people don’t have regular dental check-ups. A few minor changes in your daily routine can make a big difference in the long term. Visiting the dentist regularly means that any build-up on your teeth can be removed along with treating any gum disease that has already appeared. Daily dental care is up to you, and your main tools are your toothbrush, toothpaste and interdental cleaning (cleaning between your teeth).
Adults should choose a small to the medium-sized brush head. This should have soft to medium, multi-tufted, round-ended nylon bristles or ‘filaments’. It is important that the head be small enough to reach into all parts of the mouth: especially the difficult to reach places. Children should use smaller brushes but with the same type of filaments.
Studies and tests have shown that an electric toothbrush is more effective at removing plaque than a manual toothbrush. Those with heads that rotate in both directions are the most effective. One of the biggest benefits of an electric toothbrush is that they are particularly useful for people with limited movement of the arm or hand, such as disabled or elderly people, who often find that using a normal toothbrush does not allow them to clean thoroughly.
