Take care of your oral health by visiting our hygienist regularly.  Allow 1:15mins for your first visit for most adults.

Our dental hygienist offers:
  • A detailed diagnostic assessment for periodontal disease, including evaluation of pocketing, bleeding and bone loss.  Results are collated on computerized charts for comparison with earlier results, allowing disease progression to be tracked.
  • Therapeutic treatment including scaling, root planning, antibiotic pocket therapy and reattachment procedures.
  • Preventative maintenance for adults and children through our continuing periodontal care programme.
  • Fluoride treatments to remineralise teeth and aid in decay resistance.
  • A wide range of prevention aids, such as brushes, floss, gels, mouthwashes.
  • Regular reminders and ongoing support and encouragement.
  • Decay risk assessment profiling.
Significant Health Implications

Research now shows a clear link between periodontal disease and the following medical conditions.  In many cases serious consequences can arise in at risk patients with periodontal disease.  These include:

  • cardiovascular disease risk, with increased risk of stroke and heart attack.
  • premature birth with low birth weight babies.
  • uncontrolled diabetes in adult diabetics.
  • increased risk of pneumonia, particularly in elderly patients.

City Dental at Quay Park, everyone deserves a dream smile - general dentistry

These teeth are typical of the average NZ mouth - big old amalgam fillings, some larger white composite fillings and smaller black fillings with cracks in teeth. Amalgam contributes to stress fractures in teeth and we commonly find internal fractures in teeth with moderately sized silver fillings. Composite resin is suitable for smaller cavities and porcelain may be a stronger solution in heavily decayed or filled teeth.


Dental Implants Auckland >> City Dental

We routinely consider an implant as the first choice for a missing tooth, or a tooth in need of extraction through accident or disease. We have an excellent working relationship with dental specialists and use high tech CT scanning in all of our implant case planning. Our office provides comprehensive implant case planning, surgery, referral and reconstruction of all implants.


City Dental at Quay Park, everyone deserves a dream smile - high tech dentistry

Conventional porcelain dentistry involves taking an impression of teeth and waiting up to two weeks for the final work to return from the laboratory. We now know that dental decay is a complex disease caused by about 30 strains of bad bacteria that live alongside good bacteria in the mouth. The mercury amalgam is separated before waste water is discharged into public sewers and the amalgam is disposed by collection agencies.
