dental examination centraldentalsurgery

Comprehensive Exam

Central Dental Surgery places great importance on regular dental examinations.

If you are a new patient we really take the time to get to know you and your mouth.
Even if you have had regular care under another dentist, your new dentist will want to become familiar with your health.
This will allow them to recognise changes or problems during future visits.

Typically a check-up involves an external check of the muscles of the face, function of the jaw joint and salivary glands, two X-rays - one on each side of the mouth- a saliva p.H test, and thorough check of each tooth and its surrounding tissue.
If any treatment is needed we will write a comprehensive treatment plan and talk through all options available.

Dental Hygienist centraldentalsurgery

Dental Hygiene

The purpose of professional dental cleaning is to remove the hard calculus (also called tartar) from above and below the gum line.
Brushing and flossing at home (when done correctly) removes plaque but only specialist dental instruments can remove hard calculus. 

Our hygienist, Kim Ongley, uses a combination of ultrasonic vibration, laser and hand instruments to remove build up from around and between teeth.

Appointment times range from 30 minutes to 60 minutes - Sometimes repeat appointments are necessary. 

Visiting a dental hygienist regularly is essential to keeping a healthy smile.

Invisalign ®

Invisalign ® is an innovative way to straighten teeth without the use of metal or wire. 


Invisalign ® uses a series of clear, almost invisible, removable aligner trays that gently move teeth to the desired position. 


The revolutionary technology and manufacturing is customized to every individual case to achieve the best result. 


This treatment is most suitable for adults who may feel self conscious about wearing brackets or are conscious of their appearance.


BioHorizons ® Implants

BioHorizons ® uses science and innovation to create unique dental implants with proven aesthetic results. 

BioHorizons  ® implants are lightweight, strong, biocompatible and made from titanium, the most widely used material in implant dentistry.

Dental implants are a great long term option if you are looking to replace a couple of teeth or stabilise a denture.

Our Dentist Doctor Nick Song has a passion for oral surgery and specialises in Biohorizon Implants. 

Dental Benefits

We are registered to provide free dental treatment for 12-18 year old children under the Ministry of Health Dental Benefits program.  Free dental treatment does not include braces or aesthetic work (whitening, veneers etc).

This benefit applies regardless if the patient is working or studying as long as they are under 18.

If your child is younger and has been referred on by their school dental nurse they will also be suitable for free treatment under the Special Dental Benefits program. 

 
Dysport and Botox injections centraldentalsurgery

Facial Muscle Relaxation

using injectable Dysport ® and Azzalure ®.


Dysport ®, Azzalure ® are medications used to reduce tension in the chewing muscles and improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. It is also an excellent treatment for preventing wrinkles. Made from Botulim Toxin Type-A it has been successfully used for decades.


Semi-regular (every 4-6 months) use of Dysport®/Azzalure will soften or prevent wrinkles forming, making you look younger and fresher as well as reducing any tension in the facial muscles caused by tooth grinding or stress.




Muscular facial exercises centraldentalsurgery

Muscular Functional Exercises

Muscular Functional Exercises look at the movement and forces applied within the mouth and surrounding tissues to determine the cause of seemingly unrelated problems. 


Problems such as snoring, mouth breathing, tooth misalignment, lip separation and sore jaws can be treated or alleviated though the application of specialist muscle training.


If teeth are displaced due to facial muscles working incorrectly a patient may need braces for correction alongside learning how to use the muscles in a more beneficial way.

Central Dental Surgery works with Myoresearch to correct common problems.


Customised Mouthguard centraldentalsurgery

Customised Mouth guards

Customised mouth guards offer the freedom to enjoy playing contact sports without needing to worry about your teeth. 

Made using a model of your teeth, the mouth guard is perfectly fitted to still allow drinking, speaking and breathing without interruption. 

We make all sports mouth guards in our practice and offer a selection of colours and styles, allowing you to customise it - choose your team colours or add some glitter!





 
Fillings, composite broken tooth centraldentalsurgery

Fillings

At Central Dental Surgery we choose to use white composite filling material instead of amalgam.

This provides patients with a functional and aesthetically pleasing filling that is formed with their natural tooth colour and shape in mind. 

Composite material can be used to restore the health of a tooth (replace old amalgam or fill a cavity) or to improve the look of a smile (close gaps between teeth).





Root Canal Treatment centraldentalsurgery

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal is a specialist treatment performed to restore teeth that have developed nerve damage. 

This treatment helps prolong the tooth's life inside the mouth by removing the infected tissue inside the tooth and replacing it with a stronger, medicinal filling. 

After a root canal, patients either have a filling placed over the tooth or a crown to keep the tooth strong and intact.





Porcelain Fused to Metal Crowns centraldentalsurgery

Crowns

An established and well developed method of restoring and replacing teeth. 
A crown is typically placed when a tooth has deteriorated substantially or when a Root Canal Treatment has been performed. When cared for correctly a crown will protect the tooth from further damage and cracking.

We are able to use a wide range of materials including gold, porcelain or zirconia to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing crown or bridge.
Central Dental Surgery works alongside several fantastic laboratories to create crowns that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional for the patient.

 
full dentures centraldentalsurgery

Dentures and Plates

Backed up by an excellent Dental Technician Laboratory here in Wellington we achieve exceptional results by replacing missing teeth with removable plastic or metal based dentures.

Dentures give the freedom to create the perfect smile to suit your face and your mouth.




miniimplants centraldentalsurgery

Mini Implants

This technology is used to improve function by stabilising complete (or full) dentures or for replacing individual missing teeth. A mini dental implant is completed with a crown for a natural look.


An implant is made of titanium and is "screwed" into the jaw bone. Although this sounds unpleasant this procedure is less invasive and improves aesthetics and function for suitable candidates at a lower cost compared to conventional implants.
