The Earth is our home. We all share a mutual responsibility to give back and care for our planet. That’s why at Deakin Dental we strive to be eco-friendly and green where possible. We are using biodegradable products where we can and recycling our paper, cardboard, plastics and any mercury that is filtered from the water system. We even compost our food waste for Dr Atreya’s garden.
We offer a whole range of treatments for you, your family and friends to meet your dental needs.
We just want to care for your mouth with a thorough check, gum care, scaling, digital X-rays and photographs. Getting you back on to flossing and good maintenance.
Sometimes this happens, if you have a swelling, a broken or painful tooth, maybe a lost tooth or something else, we will do our best to fit you in and get you out of pain.
Dental trauma involving a lost tooth is a dental emergency! If your permanent tooth falls out of your mouth due to injury, Dr. Atreya suggests to gently clean off the root, if still intact, and try to replace it in the socket in the appropriate orientation as soon as possible. If you can replace the tooth within 30 minutes, research shows there is a much higher percentage of keeping your original tooth! Other tips include storing the tooth in saliva (like in your cheek), or milk. You should not wait over two hours to be seen by a dental professional.
Dental trauma involving a broken tooth is a dental emergency. If you are experiencing pain, please come into our Deakin practice ASAP. We will do our absolute best to squeeze you into that day’s schedule.
Dental abscess is a dental emergency and should be treated immediately. Dental swellings could spread and become dangerous situations if not treated properly.
If your gums are spontaneously bleeding, yet you have regular cleanings and checkups, this is a dental emergency. Please visit your medical doctor immediately to check the status of your health, and let Dr. Atreya at Deakin Dental know as soon as possible. Bleeding gums could be a symptom of more serious health conditions.
Broken Cusp of a Molar
Unless you’re in extreme pain, a broken cusp of a molar is not a dental emergency. For these cases, we will book you at our next available spot.
What to expect
To properly evaluate the problem an X-ray of the affected area will be offered, along with a 15 to 30 minute examination. This is necessary to truly diagnose the issue at hand. Within those 30 minutes, Dr. Atreya will evaluate your dental situation and give you a clear plan of what needs to be done to have you feeling comfortable again.
Maybe you need some white fillings, a crown, bridge or veneer or even get rid of some staining. We can make you look good and feel good!

Simple tooth removal? Saying goodbye can be painless.
Mild or moderate sleep apnoea and snoring? Large tonsils or tongue? Crowded teeth?
Did you know the quality of your sleep can affect your health? People with sleep disordered breathing or sleep apnoea can be at risk for many conditions, such as stroke, heart disease, dementia, anxiety, depression and much more.
I collaborate closely with local sleep physicians, ENT surgeons, physiotherapists, GP’s and orthodontists to assist you with this. I value this holistic approach.
Not only that, MAS (mandibular advancement splints) are going to help you too.
Tight jaw, pain in your neck, ears or frequent headaches and poor posture?
