It’s generally caused by factors such as poor dental health or excessive consumption of sugary foods and drinks. Dr Olstein is an expert in repairing all types of decayed teeth.

Treatments for Tooth Decay

The following symptoms are signs of tooth decay

  • Sensitivity to hot, cold or sweet substances
  • Pain when chewing

Dr Olstein has 30 years of dental experience examining decaying teeth and identifying a suitable procedure to fill the impacted areas.

After a full dental inspection of your jaw, gums, teeth positioning and overall health, Dr Olstein’s friendly staff may take an x-ray to assess the spread of the decay.

This examination is essential in seeing if the dentin or the pulp has been affected. A filling or a root canal will be suggested depending on the site of the decay.

Throughout this process we:

  • Keep you informed during every step of your consultation
  • Always work with you to present treatment plans within your budget so that you get the best value for money
  • Stand by our mission to treat every patient as an individual.

Our friendly team is highly skilled and educated. We provide all the information and products you need for superior care and recovery after your visit.
