General Dentistry

General dentistry is the foundation for your family’s oral health and smiles. General dentistry includes a variety of terms including family dentistry and comprehensive dentistry, and it also includes cosmetic dentistry. Your Taringa general dentist, Dr Paul Rollason, provides the preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry necessary to give you a healthy, happy smile for a lifetime.

Foundational Preventive Dentistry

Preventing dental conditions before they start is an ideal approach to oral health. Regular dental check-ups, cleans and x-rays are the cornerstone of good oral health. Twice-yearly dental visits provide an opportunity for Dr Rollason or our hygienists to identify conditions such as decay and gum disease that put your smile at risk.

In addition to regular check-ups, some of the preventive dentistry we provide includes:

  • Fluoride application
  • Athletic mouthguards
  • Bruxism nightguards
  • Fissure sealants
  • Gum treatments
  • Oral hygiene instruction
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Digital dental x-rays

Each treatment plan is designed for you with your age, health, dental and cosmetic concerns in mind. We never recommend treatment that is unnecessary. Instead, we discuss your goals and provide information to help you decide the best path to good oral health for yourself.

Dentistry for the Whole Family

We love creating a family atmosphere and looking after patients of all ages, including children. By welcoming members of your family at every life stage, we are able to develop a meaningful relationship with the families of our communities.

From toddlers, teens, adults and seniors, Dr Rollason is well-equipped to manage oral health care at every life stage, addressing the unique needs of patients during each phase.

Restorative Dentistry

Even with regular dental care, decay, trauma and tooth loss sometimes occur. Using modern materials that have exceptional durability and aesthetics, we can repair existing teeth and replace missing teeth.

  • Dental fillings
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Veneers
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Dental bonding
  • Implants
  • Dentures and partials
  • Root canal therapy
  • Full mouth rehabilitation

In most cases, we will use tooth-coloured dentistry that improves rather than distracts from your natural smile. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Even the healthiest smile might not look exactly how you would like. If you have something you would like to improve, we will discuss ways that you can have natural-looking results that improve confidence and encourage you to smile.

  • Teeth whitening
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Dental implants
  • Veneers
  • Smile makeovers
  • Invisalign clear braces

Many people falsely believe that cosmetic dentistry is only for the wealthy or famous, but modern improvements to techniques and dental restoration materials mean that cosmetic dentistry will fit into nearly every budget. Your smile is an important investment in yourself, and we are happy to go over options to make you feel great about the way you look.
