101 reasons to see the dentist

Well, there may not quite be 101 reasons to visit the dentist but there are probably more than you’d imagine. We all know about the essential regular dental check-up but did you know that dental treatment in Mackay can give you a more confident smile, help you with snoring and even with jaw aches?

At Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, we provide a full range of treatments for any and all of your dental needs. So let’s take a closer look at some of what’s on offer when you come to visit our warm and friendly practice.

Dental Treatments in MackayRelieving aches

If you’ve got a persistent ache around your jaw, ear and temple you may have TMD, short form temperomandibular disorder. Other signs include headaches around the temples, as well as clicking or grinding noises when you move your jaw. TMD can be caused by teeth grinding or an uneven bite, both of which dental treatment in Mackay can help resolve. For example, we can craft custom-made mouth guards to wear at night, which help reduce the effects of teeth grinding and preserve the integrity of your teeth.

Sleeping better

The underlying causes of both snoring and sleep apnoea can be traced back to your oral health. Again, we can help with dental devices. For sleep apnoea using a device that shifts the jaw forward a little can open up your airway a bit more, which reduces the air resistance that results in sleep apnoea.

Smiling brighter

Achieving a confident, healthy smile sometimes requires a helping hand. Our suite of cosmetic dental treatments can tackle a range of dental imperfections. Stained teeth? Try teeth whitening. Misshapen teeth? Try veneers. A gummy smile? Gum reshaping can sort that out.
