Do you have a pressing question that you need answered? We have complied a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience.
How often should I visit the dentist?
It is important to attend your regular dental appointments to help keep your gums and teeth healthy. We want to help you keep your oral hygiene in tiptop condition; hence when you visit us for your check-up, we can assess any issues while they are small before they turn into bigger and more complex problems. To keep your oral hygiene in optimum condition, we recommend visiting us three to four times a year, however if you’re susceptible to gum disease, pregnancy, smoking or mouth cancer we recommend that you visit us more frequently. For more information, visit our page on check-ups.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
Our patients have never experienced pain during our Zoom! in-chair teeth whitening treatment. If you have sensitive teeth, talk to our friendly team about options to calm your oral sensitivity. Feel free to contact us for more information.
What type of braces do you offer?
At Sublime Dental, we offer both SmileFast and Invisalign. SmileFast technology allows us to straighten your teeth in a short period of time. Invisalign offers you the ability to discreetly straighten your teeth and align your jaw with the almost ‘invisible’ technology. For more information about our braces treatments, see our orthodontics page.
What is ‘sleep’ dentistry?
We understand that dental visits can make some people feel uneasy or anxious for a number of reasons. If you fear dental treatments we provide solutions such as needle-free injections, numerous options of sedation, soothing music of your choice, and our gentle touch artistry to make you feel as comfortable as possible. To learn more about our sedation options, visit our sedation dentistry page.
What type of dental implant solutions do you offer?
We offer several different approaches to implant dentistry. Whether you’re in need of one or more teeth replacement, we can personalise a plan that best suits both you and your budget. Our solutions include missing tooth or teeth treatments, full-arch restorations, and bone grafting. For more information about our implant treatments, see our implant dentistry page.
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant is placed within the jawbone to prevent the surrounding teeth from rotating and shifting out of place, causing further damage to your mouth. Dental implants can help to restore a smile by replacing a missing tooth at the same time as it prevents the surrounding teeth from being sacrificed by the placement of a traditional bridge. If you’re interested in learning more about our implants, see our implant dentistry page.
Do you offer dentistry for children?
At Sublime Dental, we can cater for your whole family! From the littlest patient, all the way up to your extended family we have treatments to keep everybody’s mouth in optimum health. We are passionate about our little patients, and we believe that no one should be afraid of the dentist; rather, they should enjoy each visit and look forward to their next one.
