Yes. We practice all facets of general dentistry.

Yes, of course. Our van is fitted with the necessary portable equipment so that we are able to treat the patient right from their bed. There are various services we provide to home-bound patients. Read more on our treatments here.

On average, the initial exam and consultation will take around one hour. We will need to do an exam and take x-rays and then discuss your treatment plan.

In some unique cases, we may not be able to perform some procedures in your home, due to its complexity or lack of the appropriate equipment. In such cases, we will refer you to a specialist in the area that can manage the case as they see fit.

It is vital that we visit you at least once every six months, even if you have no teeth. A full oral exam will highlight any dental issues you may not be aware of. We can also assist with creating full dentures for you in just 3 days, and address any mouth-related issues you may have. Check out our treatment pages and services here. 

Yes. The medication you are taking may have serious implications either prior to or post dental surgery. If you are having teeth extracted or even being given anaesthesia, we need to know your medical history and medicines. We suggest writing a detailed list of the drugs and their doses and how often you take them, before we finalise your treatment plan. It’s also imperative that we know about any previous surgeries, illnesses or changes in your health.

Yes, you most certainly can. Here are some reasons why:

  1. The toothpaste you used and the water you drank when you were younger, quite possibly did not have fluoride in it. If you did not get enough then, you may pay the price now in the form of cavities as your teeth are not protected.
  2. Tooth decay loves to hide out in old fillings, resulting in major cavities.
  3. Naturally, as we age, our gums tend to recede and our roots are left exposed. If we do not have sufficient enamel to protect them, they are disposed to tooth decay.

If you suffer from dry mouth and a lack of constant saliva due to various medications, you may be prone to cavities too. Saliva not only keeps your mouth wet but it protects teeth from decaying and heals sores in the mouth.

To prevent dental plaque from forming on the surface on your dentures, you should remove them and clean them every night. First, fill a wash basin with some water just in case you drop them and to avoid fractures. Using some denture gel or detergent on a soft toothbrush, clean every surface of the denture, and then rinse them thoroughly.

Finally, immerse the cleaned denture into a cup of water overnight. Do not use normal toothpaste to clean your dentures as the course particles in the paste may scratch the surface of the denture and make room for plaque accumulation. Read more about denture care here.
