To get the beautiful straight teeth that you have always wanted without having braces, then consider Invisalign treatment. Consult with our team to determine whether Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.
A series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners is used by the Invisalign treatment. These clear aligners of Invisalign are made with 3D computer imaging technology which are proven to be effective.
The aligners are not only virtually invisible, they can also be removed, allowing you to eat and drink what you want while in treatment. And have no problems with brushing and flossing. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, having you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. You can also view your own virtual treatment plan when you start with Invisalign treatment, for you to see an estimate of how your straighter teeth may look when your treatment is complete.
Dental Implants Merricks
People often get embarrassed, hide their smile and lose their self-esteem because of missing teeth. Bacteria can easily infect the spaces that have missing teeth, which causes other teeth to shift out of place, and making it difficult for people to speak or eat correctly. Our dental clinic in Mornington Peninsula, understands that a missing tooth can create hardships. We provide dental implants so that our patients can regain their self-confidence, improve their health, and approach life boldly.
Installation of implants is a complex procedure requiring the replacement of missing teeth in a safe and natural way.

Straightening your smile is possible with orthodontic treatment, helping you straighten crooked or misshapen teeth, close gaps and correct bite problems.
Adult orthodontics continues to be popular, defeating the common misconception that orthodontic treatment is only for teenagers. With advances in clear orthodontic braces and aligners, it is now much easier for patients to achieve the perfect look, without any worry in their appearance.
Crooked or misaligned teeth may also make eating difficult, hence, orthodontics is not only for cosmetic purposes. It may also be difficult to talk or brush and floss your teeth which also increases your risk of dental problems.
Arrange a consultation for orthodontics at our Mornington Peninsula dentist clinic and find out if you could benefit from orthodontic treatment. You will be given a comprehensive assessment to determine your suitability and give you all the information that you need to make an informed decision.
Dental Hygiene Merricks
When you come in for a ‘regular clean’ you will have an experience like no other with our thorough and gentle Oral Health Therapists/Dental Hygienists. Instead of a ‘quick 10 minute clean’ they allocate 60 minutes of their time to you to effectively remove stains & bacteria (plaque & calculus) from around your teeth and gums. They take extra steps to ensure you are comfortable and adjust their treatment to how sensitive your teeth are.
They do this through extra care, compassion, attention to detail and extra efforts such as, applying a desensitising paste prior to starting, using hand-scalers, or adjusting the settings on the equipment to bespoke settings just for you. If you have had bad experiences in the past with routine cleans there is no need to worry because they will tailor your appointment to your needs so you can be comfortable and pain-free. They will take the time to discover your daily dental hygiene routine & figure out ways of making it for efficient or effective using their wealth of knowledge on dental products, and brushing/flossing techniques.
Our Mornington Peninsula Oral Hygienists take time to thoroughly assess your gums for hidden and silent gum issues that could be causing bad breath and permanent loss of gums (gum recession) or loss of bone. Their motto is to help you keep your teeth for life through prevention and early detection of hidden disease. They will also help you assess the colour of your teeth and help you achieve your goals in gaining a healthy and bright smile you are proud of.
Jaw Issues Merricks
Clenching and grinding is subconscious and so most people that do it will have no idea that it’s occurring. The damage done by clenching and grinding isn’t obvious until a tooth fractures or the wear has occurred into the nerve. A common sign of long-term clenching or grinding is that the muscles in the cheek and temples enlarge on clenching. Much like working out at the gym, a muscle that is overworked can get larger and more powerful.
This makes the damage caused by clenching and grinding worse. One treatment method is to inject muscle relaxants into the muscles to stop them activating to their maximum potential. A common side effect is that the wrinkles around the area injected tend to disappear.
