We involve you in your care
Here at All About Teeth, we cover all aspects of dental treatments including dental implants, teeth whitening, snoring and sleep apnoea and even orthodontics.
We are interested in treatment procedures to rebuild or revitalise your worn down or tired smile from a simple teeth whitening procedure to lighten your teeth, to a full restorative treatment like dental implants to replace your missing teeth.
We offer our services to patients of all ages and all backgrounds from children, to professionals, to the elderly. Our experts take the time necessary to evaluate your individual situation and give you the best dental recommendations based on your current oral health.
All About Teeth is a purpose-built dental care centre dedicated to the provision of high quality and personalised dental health care. Our centre is fully computerised to ensure your personal information and digital x-rays are not misplaced. This also allows diagnostic records to be emailed to referred specialists when required.
An essential element at All About Teeth is that your appointment is comfortable and efficient. There have been significant advances in diagnostic technology with some of the most sophisticated equipment developed specifically for the dental profession.
We have carefully selected the equipment and treatment lounges housed within our treatment studios to ensure you are fully relaxed during every phase of your appointment and our centre has been purpose-built and incorporates;
At All About Teeth we use the Sensor system this provide us with high definition x-rays that are available in seconds to enable us to diagnosis our patients accurately.
Is a highly advanced piece of diagnostic equipment, which enables you to see on a monitor what we see during your examination. This allows us to explain in detail your current oral health and required treatment. The intra-oral camera hand piece has a built-in light and a miniature video camera with 25 times zoom magnification, so you can make informed treatment decisions with confidence.
With the use of Loupes magnification, everything can be doubled in size. Being able to see something larger allows for much higher precision and accuracy with all work. At All About Teeth we also have the use of a Microscope with magnification for 2 times to 20 times magnification. This allows an improvement in the quality and also the longevity of all work done.
So we can discuss your treatment needs and desires as well as financial arrangements in complete privacy we have incorporated, as part of our practice, a private consultation suite.
All instruments are heat sterilised using the latest sterilisation units in a dedicated room. All of our equipment used on each patient is tracked using barcodes which means we can track our sterilisation process electronically. We can ensure strict sterility is used for each patient using this system. Our team adhere meticulously to strict infection control protocols and guidelines as set by the Australian Dental Council.
By utilising an electric hand piece to perform root canal therapy our team of dentists can clean and shape the root canals faster than using hand files and because it’s electric, there is no drill noise. This makes the whole treatment experience much more pleasant and efficient.

Prevention is always better than the cure and here at All About Teeth, we recommend a daily brushing and flossing routine to avoid decay, and most importantly gum disease. The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis. Gingivitis can easily and quickly progress into periodontal disease or bone disease, which is where bacteria and their toxins invade the gums deep into the bone.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and if left untreated for relatively short periods of time can cause permanent bone damage and even bone loss, limiting your suitability for restorative treatment such as dental implants. Early treatment is available to stop gum disease progression, but some damage may be irreversible leading to future oral and general health complications and expense.
Having regular dental check-ups can offer quite a lot of benefits to your oral health but also your overall whole body health. It’s better to diagnose possible dental problems early and get them taken care of before they turn into more serious issues.
Dental treatments should usually take place every six months at a general check up and clean, but is occasionally recommended beyond just a routine cleaning. Restorative dentistry is the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of many oral diseases and issues.
Recent technological advancements in the field of dentistry have enabled our skilled dentists to better diagnose and treat restorative dentistry cases. By using state of the art, high quality dental materials like porcelains we can provide tooth restorations that not only look like your natural teeth but also mimic the feel and function.
Restorative dentistry at All About Teeth encompasses many dental procedures including dental implants, dental fillings, inlays and onlays, and crowns and bridges.
Some of the most common issues we see for restorative dental treatments include:
- Missing teeth
- Tooth decay
- Gaps in teeth
- Chips or cracks
- Misaligned teeth
