Dental care for the entire family
There are so many dentists around, how do you decide who is best for you and your family?
What makes Pacific Biological Dentistry different? Dr Lilian Kluge personally offers the full range of dental services inhouse ensuring that in almost every case she can treat your condition inhouse rather than refer you to another dentist.
Besides the basic and common dental issues such as cleaning, fillings, extractions and so forth, Dr Kluge can offer you more advanced treatments such as one-visit crowns, inlays and onlays using CEREC (with options in ceramic, porcelain or zirconia), cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, full mouth rehabilitations, dental bridges and complex tooth extractions including wisdom tooth extractions.
The added benefit of attending Pacific Biological Dentistry is that we use the best possible materials for both excellent clinical results and ongoing biocompatibility in every area of our work.
We believe strongly in using only the most bio-compatible materials available to minimise exposure to any toxins that may cause systemic problems. To do so we offer metal-free, mercury-free, BPA-free, and fluoride-free alternatives to the more traditional dental treatments.
We use a digital X-ray unit to take your Intra and Extra oral X-rays which reduces your exposure to radiation and a lead apron is available. No need to refer you to a Radiologist, your panoramic x-ray known as an OPG can be done in-house. This x-ray allows Dr Kluge to view the upper and lower jaw in a 2-dimensional format and allows for greater accuracy of diagnosis.
We also offer Safe Amalgam Removal using the SMART technique prescribed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).
We also believe in integrating dental care with other medical practitioners, for example general medicine, naturopathy, homeopathy, chiropractic care and nutritional counselling.
Dr Kluge believes in spending time listening to you about your concerns, answering your questions and addressing anxieties. By fully understanding your personal situation we can offer you various treatment options and you can choose how to proceed, fully informed.
If you’ve been putting off your dental treatment because you’re feeling anxious… relax. Our simplest option is “Happy Gas” or Nitrous Oxide. This can work really well, especially for children, but often for adults as well. Happy gas usually makes people feel quite relaxed and “zone out” for the appointment. You are still awake and in control, and can communicate with your dentist, but should feel calm and comfortable.
For more complex treatment of adults or very nervous or phobic patients, IV ‘twilight’ sedation is available. Also known as Sleep Dentistry or Conscious Sedation, it is the most advanced form of dental sedation available and uses a combination of sedative and pain-relieving drugs to create a deep state of sedation throughout the entire duration of the dental procedure.
