After we carefully examine and diagnose the particular needs of the person, in some cases it may however considered in their best interests to see a specialist dentist for certain procedures. We work to find the right specialist for your particular dental treatment needs. Dr. Draper has a relationship with a number of specialists in selected fields, including:
- Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons. These surgeons are able to manage complex problems of the jaw joints, surgical treatments in support of orthodontic treatment and airway medicine, surgical management of pathology, and complicated dental extractions and major facial infections.
- Endodontists. The best quality root canal treatment for many cases requires highly specialised equipment. We are able to treat many routine cases here at Odontologica, but for those where it is in their interests to be treated by a specialist, we will always recommend referral.
- Paediatric Specialist Dentists. For more extensive or complex cases, or cases where there are complicating issues, we work closely with a specialist in children’s dentistry to minimise the psychological and clinical impact of the treatment of their needs.
- Orthodontists. We at Odontologica are focussed on tooth and gum conservation. A very important dimension of that is to ensure the teeth are in the best position possible for health. We utilise the services of specialist Orthodontists with a proven track record in child, adolescent and adult orthodontics. Minor corrections for adults and children may be offered to you by our dentist, but in every case, where it is in your interest to be treated by a specialist orthodontist we will recommend your referral. This is how we can ensure you get the best possible results for you.
- and a range of other dental, medical and allied health specialists.
So relax. We at Odontologica will develop, coordinate and implement the overall plan to achieve your oral health goals and where necessary will use specialists to provide particular aspects of the overall plan. All aspects tailored to your needs and goals.
This is why we think we’re not like the others. It’s personal here.
