Why Choose Us for Your Family's Dental Needs
HBF dental health fund at Atwell Smiles Dental covers a comprehensive range of treatments organised into four main categories for your convenience:
- Preventative dental:
This includes essential dental services like examinations to evaluate the current status of your teeth and mouth. Also, it includes scale and clean to reduce plaque and tartar and custom mouthguards for protection, especially during sports.
- Restorative dental:
These minor treatments address common dental issues. An example is a simple filling treatment to prevent tooth decay and extractions. Surgical removal of wisdom teeth may be included.
- Major dental and implants:
This category covers more complex dental procedures involving the restoration or replacement of teeth. Treatment includes crowns, bridges, endodontics (root canal therapy), and dental implants.
