We Believe in Patient-Focused Care
We believe in making high-quality dentistry convenient and comfortable for you and your family. We cater for patients of all ages to Casuarina Square Dental Care and children are welcome six months after their first tooth arrives. We encourage healthy preventive care for both children and adults alike. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry.
You will find that the service and attention you receive at Casuarina Square Dental Care is personalised to your specific needs. We will take time to listen to your questions and concerns, so that you understand all of your treatment options so you can make an informed decision.
Our goal is to provide you with treatment options that are both affordable and long-lasting.
Plan on a Comfortable Experience When You Are Here
Our clinic is modern and well-equipped with the latest technology, enabling us to make your experience more comfortable and efficient. Our dentists are able to meet your needs in a relaxed and nurturing setting.
Some of the technology we have incorporated into our Casuarina dental clinic includes:
- Digital dentistry, including x-rays and records
- Intra-oral camera
- Cone-beam CT (CBCT) scan
- Nitrous oxide
Why We Recommend X-Rays
At Casuarina Square Dental Care, we use digital imaging for all of our x-rays, including panoramic x-rays, which provide a full view of the mouth in one image. We typically recommend that standard small x-rays be taken every two years to help our dentists see any internal issues that may not otherwise be detected. As with all of our treatment recommendations, we customise treatment based on each patient's unique needs.
X-rays help us to identify issues such as periodontal disease and tooth decay in their earliest stages, which allows patients to address concerns quickly, before they progress. Digital x-rays also provide a clearer image for more accurate diagnosis and are readily available to be discussed so patients can be proactive about treatment. They are also easy to transfer to any other pertinent providers.
The Difference With Digital X-Rays
Digital x-rays are much safer for our patients, and they are also less harmful to our environment. They emit up to 80 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays. In fact, you are more likely to get more radiation from a walk outside in the Australian sunshine. With digital x-rays, there are no harsh chemicals required for development, reducing waste impact, so they are better for the environment as well.
We strive to provide patients of our Casuarina dental clinic with the safest and most comfortable dental procedures possible, and digital x-rays assist us in meeting this goal. If you've got questions about dental x-rays, please don't hesitate to call our clinic.
I Am Concerned About My Treatment Hurting
At Casuarina Square Dental Care, we use the best dental pain-eliminating medication to ensure that patients feel comfortable during their procedures. Our dentists are very experienced at delivering anaesthetic with patient comfort as a top priority.
We have also invested in modern technology designed to make treatment more comfortable and as painless as possible. For example, rotary endodontic treatment uses electric hand tools that allow us to complete root canal therapy with reduced pain and vibration. These instruments are made of titanium, which is also more pliable and easier to work with. Treatment carried out with these instruments, as opposed to standard manual hand tools, is more comfortable for patients.
Modern dental technology often means treatment is quicker, which means less time in the dental chair—and our patients really appreciate that.
We Don’t Want You to Feel Anxious About Your Appointment
We understand that dental anxiety is very real, but we don’t want fear of the dentist keep you from getting needed treatment.
If you feel fearful about your dental appointment or have had difficult experiences in the past, we are here to support you. Casuarina Square Dental Care offers additional care and calming options that can be used to help you feel comfortable and relaxed.
These calming options are also safe for fearful children as well as adults.
Sedation Dentistry as an Option in Casuarina
We offer nitrous oxide sedation for patients who need a little help relaxing during their dental appointments. You will be completely conscious during treatment and able to communicate with our team, but you will be fully relaxed.
Nitrous oxide is a gas you breathe in through a mask that works almost instantly to encourage relaxation during dental procedures and then leaves the body just as quickly so patients can return to their normal daily activities right after their time with us. You will be able to drive yourself back home or to work after your treatment is completed.
Nitrous oxide is a great option for individuals who suffer from fear or anxiety about their dentistry.
Your comfort is our top priority, and we will always do everything we can to ensure that you have a pleasant and stress-free experience at Casuarina Square Dental Care. If you've got questions about the services we offer at our Casuarina, NT dental office, give us a call.
Payment Options We Accept
We don’t want financial concerns to keep you from getting needed treatment. We accept payments through HICAPS and all insurance providers. Simply bring your card, swipe and only pay the remaining balance.
