Information for patients

Practice Policies

Infection Control

Mawson Dental Care is committed to implementing infection control systems to prevent and manage healthcare associated infections.

Cosmetic Disease

Through advances in modern dental materials and techniques; the shape, color, and alignment of your teeth can be improved to give you the smile you've always wanted.


Many people believe that once they have dentures, they no longer need regular dental care because they don't have any teeth. Denture wearers require regular check-ups and maintenance to ensure their health, comfort, and appearance.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because early periodontal disease is painless and shows few symptoms, patients are often unaware that there is a problem. For this reason, regular dental visits are essential for the early diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.


For people who have lost teeth, implants provide artificial teeth that look more natural and feel more secure. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or support a bridge, full dentures or partial dentures.


Prevention and early detection are key in avoiding costly and painful dental treatment. Prevention begins with the control of plaque and calculus, the main cause of decay and gum disease.

Restoring Damaged Teeth

Unfortunately, teeth damaged by decay or injury will not heal like most other tissues in the body. They require an artificial material to replace and restore the damaged tooth structure.

Root Canal Therapy

If a tooth's pulp (nerve and blood supply) become infected or inflamed, root canal treatment is often the only way to save the tooth.

Teeth Removal

The goal of modern dentistry is to prevent tooth loss; however, there are situations in which extraction is the only course of treatment.
