What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry covers a broad range of treatments aimed at preserving and restoring teeth whenever possible, or removing them when there is no other viable option but this is always our last resort. Every treatment provided by Dr Schlen and his team will give you the very best possible chance of enjoying good dental health. Every procedure is specifically designed with your dental needs in mind and we take extensive steps to ensure it will proceed in a smooth and trouble-free manner and with minimal stress. Procedures offered at St Vincent’s Dental Centre include:

  • Fillings
  • Dentures
  • Root canal treatment
  • Tooth Extractions
  • TMD and bruxism
  • Sleep dentistry
  • Treatment for fresh breath

Some of these treatments are likely to already be familiar to you, while others such as TMD and bruxism are less well-known. Bruxism is the correct term for clenching and grinding, a relatively common but potentially destructive condition that can often be diagnosed and treated in a way that is minimally invasive. We know some people have anxiety or dental fears and although we will always go out of our way to help, this might not always be sufficient which is why we do offer options for sleep dentistry. Lastly, fresh breath is something everyone would like to have and it is easily achievable with the correct dental care.

St Vincent’s Dental Centre is located at 3/55 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy Victoria 3065. You can contact us on (03) 9419 7022.

Fillings

The fillings used in our practice are colour coded to your natural teeth so that any cavities we restore are totally unnoticeable.

Dentures

Also known as false teeth, can be either complete, where all the teeth are missing or partial, when some teeth remain. Dentures are not as effective as dental implants but more affordable.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Therapy is the control of infection by removing dead pulp from inside the tooth. A successful root canal procedure will generally save the infected tooth where it is then cleaned, sterilized ad reshaped.

Extractions in Fitzroy

Why Might a Need a Tooth Removed? The dentists here at St Vincent’s Dental Centre regard tooth extraction as being the last resort but sometimes it can be the best option. This may be the case if the tooth is too badly damaged, for example if it has fractured right down through the tooth root, […]

TMD & Bruxism Fitzroy

What is Bruxism? Bruxism is the technical term for clenching and grinding, a subconscious condition that often occurs nocturnally. As a result, patients may be unaware they have this habit until they begin to experience symptoms, receive complaints from sleeping partners as grinding can be noisy, or it is diagnosed by a dentist. What are […]

Fresh Breath Fitzroy

Everyone hopes to have fresh breath and while occasional halitosis will affect us all, more persistent bad breath does require investigation.
