FAQs

How much you pay for a dentist visit will depend on your circumstances and dental problem. For a routine check-up and cleaning, you can expect to pay between $200 - $400. This involves a comprehensive exam including an X-ray, a scale and clean of your teeth to remove plaque and tartar build-up, and a remineralising with fluoride to protect and strengthen your teeth. Regular check-ups and cleaning help prevent gum disease and should be done every six months for good oral health. Routine appointments are also a good opportunity for your dentist to make sure that you're performing brushing and flossing routines correctly at home.

For a general dentist appointment, we recommend calling or booking ahead. If you are experiencing a dental emergency, you may be able to walk into a dental clinic to receive emergency dental care. A dental emergency may consist of:

  • facial swelling or trauma, especially if it means you are unable to breathe
  • consistent bleeding of the mouth that will not stop
  • severe mouth pain
  • significant dental trauma such as having a tooth knocked out

Here at Bay Street Dental Group, we are one of the Port Melbourne dentists that can take in dental emergency patients. If you are experiencing an emergency and require a dentist, call us immediately so you can get an appointment as soon as possible.

Dentists costs will vary based on your dentist and how much cleaning is required, but you can expect to pay between $100 and $300 for teeth cleaning appointment. Professional deep cleaning removes the plaque and tartar left behind by at-home brushing and flossing. Excess plaque can release an acid that may cause tooth decay that damages your teeth. Tartar build-up is a form of hard, calcified build-up caused by minerals in your saliva calcifying plaque. Regular cleanings at the dentist in conjunction with good habits at home helps ensure that you maintain healthy teeth and gums.

There are a few at-home remedies that you can use to cure tooth pain if you cannot make it to the dentist right away.

  • Use an over the counter pain medication such as aspirin to help ease the pain
  • Gargling with salt water can help remove bacteria from the mouth and reduce swelling
  • Applying ice or a cold compress against your cheek can help numb the pain. However, do not apply ice directly to your tooth, as toothaches can cause heightened sensitivity.
  • Try to avoid eating acidic, cold, or very hard foods. These foods can intensify the pain in your teeth

Even though these solutions can help with temporary relief from pain, the only way to get permanent relief is to see your dentist t treat the cause of your pain. If you have been experiencing prolonged tooth pain for multiple days and need a dentist in Port Melbourne, give us a call today.

If you are experiencing pain caused by a white bump on your gums, you may have a dental abscess. It is best to see your dentist if you suspect you have a dental abscess, but there are methods at home that may help lessen the pain and discomfort until your appointment. Try rinsing your mouth with salt water to relieve pain. You can do this multiple times a day to help provide relief. You can also take an over the counter pain medication to ease the pain. The first step to treating a dental abscess is to drain the bacteria and clean the area. This should only be done by a professional and should not be attempted at home. If you need a Port Melbourne dentist, we at Bay Street Dental can help. After your dentist has resolved your abscess, you can prevent it from occurring again by practising good oral care at home.

The cost of getting your teeth whitened is dependent on several factors, such as the type of treatment you would like and the number of sessions required to whiten. There are two types of dental whitening. In-Chair Whitening is a procedure done while at the dentist. The process is fast but is more costly than other methods: one tooth costs an average of $260. Take-Home Whitening is a process where your dentist will take a cast of your mouth and create custom trays for you to wear. The trays contain a whitening solution, and you will have to wear the casts for a specific time period to ensure consistent results. The average cost for a Take-Home Whitening is $610. The exact costs will depend on your dentist. Here at Bay Street Dental, we are one of the Port Melbourne dentists that offer both teeth whitening methods, depending on your preferences

Many people assume that dental caps are one of the most expensive dental procedure. A dental crown is a custom cap that is used to cover an existing tooth. Its purpose is to improve the function and appearance of a damaged or decayed tooth and costs up to $2,500 per tooth. There are many reasons why dental caps are a relatively expensive procedure. One of the reasons is that the technology required to create a crown is advanced and quite costly. Each crown is designed to perfectly match each tooth – down to the shape and colour. Since crowns are used to improve each tooth's strength and functionality, they will last you many years to come, especially compared to cheaper alternatives. Therefore, crowns are an excellent investment for the long-term.

There are a few indicators that can judge the difficulty of teeth extraction. However, the majority of extractions are relatively straightforward. How difficult a tooth will be to extract depends on a few factors, including you, your mouth, and your tooth. As you get older, your bones tend to become more brittle, resulting in a higher chance of fractures in the teeth and jaw. If you have a particularly small mouth or if your tooth is somewhat out of position, then the tooth may be unable to be gripped. There are different types of extraction procedures with varying difficulty. A simple extraction when the tooth is fully visible in the mouth is easier than a surgical extraction where the tooth hasn't fully pierced through the gum line or is broken.
