Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can we help you?

At Budgewoi Dental, we want every patient to feel entirely confident in his or her dental care. That's why we provide excellent patient education and strive to answer all your questions. If you don't see your question below, we invite you to contact us for help. 

General Information

We understand that a dental emergency can occur at any time, and we never want our patients to go without needed care. For that reason, we offer emergency dental appointments in our Budgewoi dental clinic.

Contact Budgewoi Dental in an Emergency

At Budgewoi Dental, we don’t want you to delay treatment during an emergency, which is why we’ve implemented procedures that allow us to book you into our dental clinic quickly for an emergency visit. 

If you’re experiencing an emergency dental situation, like a broken tooth, a severe toothache, gum pain or a loss of a filling or dental crown, we recommend that you call us straight away. Our knowledgeable team can book your emergency appointment and offer advice immediately, guiding you on how to deal with your emergency until you reach our clinic. 

If you’re not experiencing one of the emergency scenarios we mentioned, that doesn’t mean it’s not an emergency. Dental emergencies can vary widely and include other situations, like tooth infections and injuries. If you suspect it’s an emergency, we recommend that you call us.

Emergency Dental Treatment in Budgewoi

When you arrive at our Budgewoi dental clinic, our experienced and empathetic team, led by dentists Dr Sanjeev Mishra and Dr Hooman Atai, will assess your emergency and work quickly to make you comfortable. We know emergencies can be frightening, but we’re here to help, and we will do our best to relieve any fear or anxiety as we work to remedy your situation.

We invite you to contact us during your dental emergency for fast, efficient care and treatment.

We understand the apprehension and anxiety that comes with dental treatment. However, we never want anyone to feel uncomfortable. And we do our best to make every patient feel at ease in our clinic. 

We use the most up-to-date dental techniques and equipment to create relaxing visits and procedures, and we offer sedation dentistry options when that’s not enough. We also provide in-chair entertainment to help patients overcome anxiety through distraction. 

What Sedatives Are Available?

There are a variety of ways to make your visit more comfortable for you, including inhalation sedation and sedative medications in tablet, liquid or injection form. If you’re interested in being sedated during your dental procedure, we invite you to discuss your options with our dentists, Dr Sanjeev Mishra and Dr Hooman Atai.

Most sedatives make the patient tired but do not inhibit their ability to communicate with the dental team. Many of them won’t wear off for some time after treatment, which means you will need to have someone drive you to and from your dental appointment since you will not be able to operate a vehicle yourself. 

Sedation Dentistry in Budgewoi

We provide sedation dentistry options for both children and adults to make our patients feel more confident and secure in their dental visits. With no need for anxiety, you can have the best experience possible at Budgewoi Dental.

Children's Dentistry

The Australian Dental Association recommends that children see the dentist for the first time when they sprout their first tooth or when they reach one year of age, whichever comes first. 

At Budgewoi Dental, we love seeing your children as early as possible because it allows us to develop a good relationship with your child at a young age, which is beneficial for both your child and our dental team. With early visits, we can keep an eye on your child’s oral health as they grow and develop, intervening when necessary to help them create excellent oral health.

We can also provide the education on oral hygiene that your child needs to keep their teeth and gums healthy and strong between dental visits. And, of course, we’re here to answer any questions you have as a parent.

Children’s Dentistry in Budgewoi 

We encourage the young patients who visit our clinic to pursue outstanding oral health and to continue coming to see us with our Bravery Award, which includes a small gift for children. This award helps motivate your little ones by celebrating their achievements in oral health. 

We make your child’s dental visits as pain-free and pleasant as possible with a gentle touch, friendly care and entertainment options, like Netflix. When necessary, we also provide other pain- and anxiety-relieving methods, like the analgesic Penthrox and sedation dentistry.

Book Your Child’s First Dental Visit

We invite you to reach out to our skilled team to book your child’s first dental appointment with Dr Sanjeev Mishra or Dr Hooman Atai. Our warm and welcoming staff look forward to getting to know your child and the rest of your family to provide personalised, top-quality dental care. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

A smile makeover consists of multiple cosmetic procedures. Most patients choose to pursue a smile makeover to change the appearance of their smile while improving their functionality and overall oral health. 

What Procedures Are Included in a Smile Makeover?

Before embarking on a smile makeover treatment plan, we will thoroughly examine your dental situation and oral health. One of our skilled dentists will also discuss your smile goals and the possible cosmetic treatments for your situation before developing a plan for your smile makeover.

The procedures included will depend on your specific needs and goals. Common smile makeover procedures include:

  • Dental implants for tooth replacement
  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Dental crowns and bridges
  • Invisalign or ClearCorrect aligner treatment

Our wide range of dental services allow us to provide each patient with the customised smile they desire, and we enjoy having the ability to develop their new aesthetic. 

Smile Makeover in Budgewoi

If you want to create a more appealing smile, we invite you to reach out to Budgewoi Dental to book a consultation with Dr Sanjeev Mishra or Dr Hooman Atai. Our experienced team looks forward to creating your ideal look with our variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures.

If you only want to make a slight adjustment, we can also perform a single cosmetic service, like professional teeth whitening with Zoom.

Dental Implants

We provide dental implants as a tooth replacement for our Budgewoi area patients all the time. We enjoy using dental implants to replace missing teeth due to the many benefits dental implants can give our patients. 

We can use a single dental implant to replace one missing tooth or use multiple dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth. Our skilled dentists put the titanium implant directly into the patient’s jaw, where it grows into the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. The implant acts as a natural tooth root in the jaw, encouraging natural bone growth, which is excellent for your oral health.

When you visit our clinic for dental implants, we will thoroughly evaluate your dental situation to ensure you're eligible for dental implants before proceeding with this treatment option. 

Are Dental Implants Comfortable?

Once the healing process is complete, a dental implant should feel totally natural and comfortable. You can eat, talk, and laugh just as you would with a regular tooth. There is no special maintenance needed for the implant itself. However, if you have a dental crown, bridge or dentures attached to the implant, it does help the longevity of the tooth replacement to avoid certain foods and activities that could cause harm. 

Hard and crunchy foods may cause chips or cracks in a crown or even a natural tooth, and so can habits like teeth grinding or clenching. 

Book a Dental Implant Consultation in Budgewoi

At Budgewoi Dental, our dentists have years of experience in placing dental implants, and we would love to provide you with an excellent tooth replacement.

We invite you to contact our friendly dental team to book a consultation for dental implants with Dr Sanjeev Mishra or Dr Hooman Atai.

General Dentistry

Gum disease is, unfortunately, widespread among adults. However, the steps for preventing gum disease are actually relatively easy and straightforward. We have outlined some simple steps you can take every day to help prevent gingivitis or gum disease from developing.

Brush and Floss with Dedication

Adhere to a good oral hygiene schedule that includes flossing once per day and brushing a minimum of twice every day. 

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Book routine appointments with your dentist for dental cleans and check-ups and scaling and polishing when necessary. If you’ve already developed gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease, we’ll likely recommend a more intense dental clean schedule and a thorough scaling and root planing in the dental clinic. 

Straighten Your Teeth

Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth, and cleaner teeth can help you prevent gum inflammation and gum disease. We help patients create straighter teeth and better-aligned bites with orthodontic care in Budgewoi. We invite you to ask us about orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign, if you’re interested in creating a healthier smile.

Gum Disease Prevention in Budgewoi

At Budgewoi Dental, we both help patients prevent gum disease and assist them in treating gum problems. If you’re having gum pain, swelling, bleeding after flossing or other symptoms of gum disease, we welcome your call to our clinic. 

Dr Sanjeev Mishra or Dr Hooman Atai will conduct a comprehensive exam and offer advice on treatment options and maintenance.
