Emergency Dental Care
We provide dental services to all people regardless of age or the state of their oral health. Our dentists specialise in a wide range of services so that you can bring the whole family along for their dentist needs.
· Severe toothache: pain can be an indicator of gum disease, tooth and gum infections, cavities, or impacted wisdom teeth.
· Broken/chipped tooth: teeth are prone to cracks or breaks. It is vital to see a dentist quickly, to prevent the spread of bacteria.
· Knocked-out tooth: make sure to collect the tooth. If possible, place it back into the tooth socket and come in to see an emergency dentist.
· Abscess (infection): an abscess is a collection of bacteria under the gums or at the tooth’s root. It can cause intense pain and fever.
Here at Focus Dental Group, we offer a wide range of general dentistry services, including preventative care, cosmetic dentistry, and many more. Our main goal is to encourage good oral hygiene and health in our patients to prevent problems from occurring in the first place.

How often do you need to see a dentist?
Most dentists recommend a general checkup every six months, where you will get your teeth examined and cleaned. Depending on your circumstances and whether you have any oral issues that need addressing, you may need to come in more frequently. We believe that the best way to prevent oral problems from occurring is to come in for regular visits. That way, our dentists can catch any concerns before they become a significant issue.
What are dental implants?
Are implants the right choice for you?
If you have a missing tooth or two, a dental implant may be a good choice for you, if:
- you have a healthy jawbone
- you don’t have any gum disease or other oral health issues
- you don’t have any other pre-existing conditions that could affect bone healing.
What is orthodontics?
While most people associate their dentists with checkups, cleanings, or cavities, some may also need ortho treatments. This involves any structural problems in the mouth or jaw, such as bite alignment, teeth overcrowding, or straightening.
Family dental clinic
Focus Dental Group is a clinic for the whole family. Our dentists are passionate about paediatric dentistry and work hard to be the best kid’s dentist in the community. Getting your child comfortable at the dentist and practising good oral habits is a great way to set them up for adulthood.
Your child’s first visit
Children should see a dentist when their first tooth becomes visible or when they are 12 months old, whichever comes first. However, if you have any concerns before then, don’t hesitate to come in for an appointment.
Your child may fuss or be anxious during their first dental visit, but our kid’s dentists are trained to ensure that your baby is as comfortable as possible during the examination.
As a parent, it is your responsibility to use the first visit to acquaint yourself with your child’s oral health. Your kid’s dentist will likely talk to you about teething, brushing techniques, habits such as thumb sucking, and decay and how to prevent it.
Ongoing dental care
It is crucial to schedule dentist appointments for your children every six months. As they grow, children are susceptible to dental issues, and we want to catch them as early as possible to prevent them from getting worse. The more your child sees their kid’s dentist, the more comfortable they will be, and the more routine the experience becomes.
In-Chair Teeth Whitening
This method takes places entirely in the dentists’ chair. A special gel is placed on your teeth, which we activate with a blue LED light. The activated gel works to bleach your teeth and gets them sparkling white. You are likely to see results of a new smile up to 8 shades lighter. Altogether, the process takes roughly an hour, so it is an excellent option for those who want a speedy and efficient teeth whitening technique.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Your dentist will make a mould of your teeth, which they will use to create trays that fit your mouth perfectly. At home, you place the trays, filled with gel, into your mouth for an hour at a time. You will have to repeat this for one to two weeks. Even though it is a slower process, some prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home, and you still see excellent results.
