Pain-free dental care for the whole Family
Your teeth say more about you than any other physical feature. Teeth whitening can help with minimising discolouration from many things including coffee, smoking, foods, trauma etc. We offer in-clinic teeth whitening and take-home kits.
clearpath invisible braces
You can have straight teeth with invisible braces by ClearPath. No wires. No brackets. This is an adult orthodontic treatment, so there is no age limit. The treatment involves an 'aligner' which is a custom-made medical grade clear plastic tray, that straightens your teeth as you wear them.

Dental implants are used when replacing an entire missing tooth. These titanium screws are inserted into the jawbone, and once healed, have crowns or a bridge attached.
Implants are designed to look natural and function like natural teeth, and to cope with the pressures of eating and chewing. They can be an excellent solution for when dentures cannot be worn.
Wisdom teeth, the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws, usually appear from around 15 to 20 years of age, however this can vary.
As wisdom teeth are the last to emerge, there is often not enough room in your mouth left to accommodate them. If they only partially emerge or come in crooked or impacted, swelling and pain can occur in the surrounding tissues. This can result in the need for extraction, especially if infection is occurring.
Some extractions can take place in the clinic, however, in some circumstances we may need to refer you to a specialist.
Prevention is always better than cure, and this is something we believe in strongly at Martin Dentist Dentures. Preventive care will help keep major dental problems at bay, and the need for it starts from a young age.
Regular checkups, professional cleans, regular brushing and flossing at home, and limiting sugary and acidic foods, will give you and your family the best chance of preventing dental problems down the track. Addressing minor issues before they become big problems will not only save you money, but will also ensure you keep your beautiful smile for longer.
CROWN AND BRIDGE
Crowns (or tooth caps) are a fixed prosthetic device that will entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. They may be used for a number of reasons including replacing a large filling where there is not enough tooth remaining, to protect a weak tooth from fracturing, to cover a dental implant, and to cover a discoloured or poorly shaped tooth.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental bridges can be used to fill in the gaps with artificial teeth. A bridge will be cemented to the available natural teeth or implants (which serve as anchors) within the empty space.
The other option available to replace missing teeth is dentures.
GUM DISEASE/BLEEDING GUMS
Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss, and it has also been linked to other health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Periodontal or gum diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are caused by build up of bacterial plaque, but smoking, stress, diet and other factors can contribute.
If you have swollen, red gums that bleed easily when you brush and floss, you may be on your way to developing gum disease. We can help.
