Wisdom teeth removal
At Urban Dental we have been looking after wisdom teeth removal of the local community for decades.
Your wisdom teeth are located at the back of your mouth — two in your upper jaw and two in your lower jaw — and are more frequently extracted than any other teeth. This is because they can cause problems from the time they break through the gums, or erupt, around age 18 - 21.
Insufficient space and resulting problems often make removal of wisdom teeth the best option.
We may advise wisdom tooth removal for some of the following reasons:
Impaction with the risk of damage to adjacent teeth or crowding
Repeated episodes of infection of the gum overlying wisdom teeth
Presence of cysts associated with un-erupted wisdom teeth
Decay of the wisdom teeth due to difficulty in adequate access for cleaning
The presence of headaches or pain which may be associated with the wisdom teeth
Visit Urban Dental for Safe Wisdom Teeth Removal

Look your best with a whiter, brighter smile.
Numerous lifestyle choices can stain our teeth such as tea, coffee, smoking, certain foods and medications. An effective and affordable way to reverse or minimise these stains is by “tooth whitening”.
With our take home whitening kit, your teeth will be whiter in just 5-7 days, although most people continue with treatment for two to three weeks. In surgery tooth whitening is also available. We can help you choose which method is best for you. Call us on 3839 9488 to book a tooth whitening consultation.
Losing teeth can be extremely traumatic. Dental implants are often the best way to give back both function and beauty to your smile. A dental implant involves the placement of a titanium component into your jaw which acts as the root of the missing tooth. A porcelain tooth or crown can then be attached to restore your smile. We use high quality U.S designed and manufactured dental implants in conjunction with local quality Australian master ceramists and technicians to provide the best cosmetic and long lasting results.
As children generally start getting teeth at around six months of age, this is a great time to discuss how to best care for their pearly whites.
Eighteen months of age is a good age to start involving kids in dental visits. This may be as simple as sitting on Mum or Dad's lap in the dental chair, having a ride and getting a sticker. The purpose of these early visits is to establish rapport and begin introducing dental treatment to young children in a fun and relaxed way. These appointments are the building blocks for establishing a positive attitude towards oral hygiene that can have a huge influence throughout a person's life.
At Urban Dental, we don't want cost to be a barrier for you bringing your children for preventative treatment. That is why we provide all preventative treatments, irrespective of your private health insurance policy, with no out of pocket expense. Preventative treatments include:
If you don't have health insurance we provide preventative care for children at a 50% discount. We also keep all fillings and extractions of baby teeth to a set price of $120
Urban Dental participates in the Child Benefit Dental Scheme (CBDS) a Medicare scheme for eligible children aged two to seventeen inclusive, whereby up to $1000 of treatment can be provided. Find out more at www.humanservices.gov.au or contact us for more information.
Is your child sport ready?
Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury.
Wearing a protective custom-fitted mouthguard whilst playing contact sports can help to avoid dental injuries. Custom-fitted mouthguards provide a better fit than other varieties, as they are made to suit your individual needs. Ask us about our custom fitted mouthguards today!
Urgent bookings are available at Urban Dental for when accidents happen or when pain becomes unbearable.
Facial infections can have serious consequences, so we urge you to seek immediate professional attention. Some examples of symptoms requiring emergency care are:
Sharp throbbing or intense toothache
Pain preventing sleep
Broken or missing teeth
Call Urban Dental on 3839 9488. After hours may require a hospital visit.

Could you have sleep apnoea?
Are you always tired? Do you snore? Both are indications that you might need healthier sleep.
Though snoring is the most obvious of sleep apnoea symptoms, skipping breaths while you sleep is by far a more serious health concern. Left untreated, sleep apnoea has been shown to be associated with higher risk for serious health problems, such as heart attack or stroke. When you skip breaths, your blood oxygen level plummets. This can compromise your entire health and wellbeing.
If you or your partner have concerns in this area, please visit us for a consultation.
Do you wake up with a dull, constant headache or sore jaw? If so, you may be suffering from bruxism.
Bruxism is the involuntary clenching, grinding and gnashing of the teeth. About half of the population does this from time to time. Around five per cent of the population are regular, forceful tooth grinders. Often grinding happens during sleep, but some people even do this when they are awake.
Over an extended period, grinding can cause considerable damage to your teeth. If it continues to occur, the action will begin to wear away the enamel on your tooth and damage any dental work that has been done. Bruxism can place significant stress on your jaw muscles and joints and cause persistent jaw ache and headaches.
If you think you are grinding your teeth please seek advice from Urban Dental today. To book an appointment, call 3839 9488.
Protect your smile with a custom fitted mouthguard
Many teeth are broken or lost in sporting accidents. Although mouthguards are worn by some participants playing sport there are still many injuries due to “stock mouthguards” or “boil and bite mouthguards” not being effective.
The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends anyone who participates in a sport that carries a risk of contact to the face should wear a professional “custom fit mouthguard” to prevent dental injuries from occurring or reducing the severity of them.
Your custom fit mouthguard will be comfortable, provide you with maximum protection and could save you from extensive dental treatment, concussion and jaw injuries. A variety of colours and patterns are available for you to choose from too!
