What Is A Dental Emergency?
A dental emergency is when you experience structural damage to your teeth, such as those caused by accidents, or when you have severe pain that may involve swelling or bleeding. The sooner you see your dentist, the sooner we may be able to assist and alleviate your discomfort. If you require an emergency dental appointment, call us on (02) 8766 6698.
If you are experiencing any of the below issues, you may require an emergency dental appointment:
A tooth that has broken, chipped or been detached
Pain or swelling in your teeth or gums
Injuries inflicted as a result of sports
What Is The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights?
The Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights is a crucial set of outlines that determine the rights of patients and all those who access the Australian health system. All of our TCare Dental Centres comply with Australian infection control legislation and regulations to ensure that patients are safe and secure when they visit the dentist.
We have strict protocols throughout the entire Centre surrounding infection control, sterilising, and cleaning. When you enter an TCare Dental Centre, you’ll feel confident knowing that we uphold the Australian Charter of Healthcare Rights to the highest standard.
Do I Have To Pay If I Have Private Health Insurance?
At TCare Dental Centre, we partner with all of the significant health funds in Australia. As a private health insurance patient, you’ll benefit if you have extras or ancillary cover. We recommend consulting your health fund before booking an appointment to confirm what help you are entitled to.
Does TCare Dental Centre Offer A Payment Plan?
We’re happy to offer flexible payment plans on a range of our dental services and treatments, allowing you to access tooth fillings, braces and even implants sooner.

How Much Are The Fees At TCare Dental Centre?

Are You In Pain Now ?
Mild dental pain can become serious if left untreated. Discomfort while eating or drinking hot or cold food or water or brushing your teeth can escalate without a proper check-up and treatment. If you are experiencing dental pain now and need an emergency dentist in Sydney, call TCare Dental Centre immediately on (02) 8766 6698.
Our primary concern is your well-being, and we can set up an immediate appointment to get you the treatment you need. Oral health issues can strike any time – we’re available when you need an emergency dentist in NSW.
Why Do I Need To Have X-Rays Taken?
X-rays can also reveal hidden dental structures, such as wisdom teeth, which do not present themselves until they have pierced the gum. An x-ray can help your dentist identify and treat issues sooner.
I Don't Like Needles, Can I Have Dentistry Sedation For My Treatment?
We understand that needles can be uncomfortable for some. At TCare Dental Centre, we offer a few options to relax your dental treatment. With all our options, you will need a friend or family member to transport you home following your procedure.
Oral sedation involves taking a pill roughly an hour before your procedure. While under the influence of the medication, you should be able to respond to directives, but you may not remember the procedure afterwards.
IV sedation, or sleep dentistry, involves the delivery of medication intravenously. This option is only presented in consultation with your dentist, who will review your health history and current medications to determine if sleep dentistry suits you.
When I Get My Teeth Cleaned, Will They Be Whiter?
The goal of teething cleaning is to improve your overall gum health. Your dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums to remove bacteria that can cause bad breath.
While a clean can help remove most of the surface stains on your teeth, such as cigarette, alcohol, or coffee stains, it does not change the internal color of your teeth. At TCare Dental Centre, we offer teeth whitening services that can help restore your brightest smile.
Why Should I Use A Soft Toothbrush?
Do Your Teeth Need Cleaning?
Regular oral care is important. You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. This keeps your mouth healthy and prevents bacteria and plaque from building up. However, other dental health issues can arise, even with regular brushing and flossing.
Schedule a checkup with your dentist so they can ensure your oral health is on track and provide early treatment for any issues. TCare Dental Centre is conveniently located throughout NSW so you can find a local dentist in Sydney.
Do You Have Bad Breath?
You can minimise bad breath by regularly brushing and flossing your teeth, but it’s also important that you book a checkup with your dentist in case there are underlying health issues.
Do Your Gums Bleed When You Brush?
If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to other areas of your mouth, damaging your roots and bone attachment and may lead to tooth loss.
Are Your Teeth Yellow?
Yellow teeth can be caused by your lifestyle, diet, or genetics. Discoloured teeth can have a negative impact on your confidence, as well as cause potential oral health issues down the track. At TCare Dental Centre, we have professional teeth whitening treatments in Sydney to bring out your brightest smile.
DIY, at-home teeth whitening products that claim to make your teeth whiter can harm your teeth and gums and are not recommended by dentists. Our professional teeth whitening is safe, and comfortable, and can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth in just a few sessions.
Does Your Smile Need A Makeover?
Do You Have Missing Teeth?
Whether you’ve lost a tooth recently or have had teeth missing for some time, TCare Dental can help. Losing a tooth can create long-term problems, including the movement of other teeth, issues with mouth movement, or even infections.
This results in a poor appearance of your smile due to movement, and your oral function may also be affected. Additionally, missing teeth can negatively impact your quality of life, preventing you from enjoying your favourite food or smiling confidently.
Book an appointment with an experienced dentist who will walk you through our services and treatment options available to you. Your treatment may include dentures, implants, or a dental bridge, or we may suggest a temporary or preventative solution. Please call us right away on (02) 8766 6698 to find out how we can help you.
Are Your Teeth Crooked?
TCare Dental Centre can help align crooked teeth, close gaps and ensure your teeth are in the right position. We offer a range of orthodontic treatments for children and adults, such as braces and Invisalign clear aligners.
Orthodontic treatment works by applying pressure to your teeth over a period of time, gently nudging them into place. Clear aligners are a popular choice for correcting crooked teeth as they can be removed while eating, are easy to maintain, and are almost invisible, unlike traditional braces.
Our experienced dentists can advise you on suitable treatment options for crooked teeth, as well as the timeframe that will be required to achieve your best smile.
