General Dentistry - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

We want to help you maintain your natural teeth for life. General Dentistry is the application of several restorative processes aimed to repair tooth structure and preserve your natural teeth.

Orthodontics - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

Bite problems such as crowding, cross-bites, gaps between teeth and the jaw bone when they are at rest can be treated with appliances such as fixed braces, removable appliances and orthopaedic appliances. Surgical corrections in certain cases may be the preferred option.

Often such problems become apparent from 7 years of age, hence the importance of having an initial consultation at an early age. Sometimes, early treatment is useful when children still have primary teeth present to simplify and expedite orthodontic treatment when in permanent dentition. Put simply, the earlier they are seen, may help prevent more significant bite problems from developing simplifying treatment in permanent dentition and may reduce the need to extract teeth or jaw bone surgery.

Implant Dentistry - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

Dental implants are an effective long-term solution for replacing any severely damaged or missing teeth you may have. Aesthetically, dental implants blend in with your remaining teeth making them visually undetectable.

As well as mimicking the appearance, the implant also functions in the same way as your other teeth. This combined with their overall convenience, gives dental implants a high success rate. As they don’t require removal for cleaning or maintenance, they are great alternative to a bridge or a fixed denture.

General Anesthesia - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

Here at Thompson Road Dental Services, we can offer you general anaesthesia (or sleep dentistry) as a technique for overcoming your dental fears. If you have anxiety or fear of discomfort, this may prevent you from visiting our practice. Sleep dentistry takes the stress out of your dental appointments so you can avoid the parts that make you fearful.

Sleep Apnea - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

Sleep Apnea (or Sleep Apnoea) is a sleeping disorder that is unfortunately quite common. It is characterised by shallow or paused breathing during sleep. As breathing resumes, snorting, choking, and snoring can all be common indicators of the condition.

While Sleep Apnea affects many people, the risk of getting Sleep Apnea include being male, over 40 years of age, having sinus problems, a deviated septum, small jaw bone or allergies to name a few. Having Sleep Apnea can lead to more serious medical issues.

Dentures - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

Sometimes teeth are beyond repair and require replacement. This involves removal of all diseased teeth and replace immediately, for in some instances, few weeks later with dentures, that can either be full dentures or partial dentures.

It’s easy to take for granted the important role our teeth have in our everyday lives. Missing teeth not only have a detrimental impact on your ability to speak and eat properly, but they can also have a negative impact on your confidence and overall wellbeing.

Children's Dentistry - Dentist in Cranbourne | Thompson Road Dental Services

At Thompson Road Dental, we have a strong focus on prevention. We are a family dental practice; 30% of our patients are children, so you can be assured that we have a lot of experience in paediatric dentistry.

It is highly recommended that we start seeing children as early as 2-3 years of age or when all the baby teeth have erupted, so we can help prevent a lot of the problems we see in adults. Our dental team encourages children to develop a positive dental approach which will lead them to a brighter, healthier future. We are devoted to providing a nurturing, caring, and educational atmosphere for children. It is for this reason that parents in Cranbourne and neighbouring suburbs visit our dental clinic.
