If you need a dentist in Mackay, for some general dentistry, then Northern Beaches dental has all treatments available. The main use of general dentistry is to maintain oral health, and after a check-up, we will be able to determine any issues that you may be having and work to discover what is causing any problems.
Dentistry is not always about solving the problems as they come, but trying to maintain oral health for your entire life. The most important thing to prevent dental problems is to maintain a good dental hygiene, so that you may avoid any cavities or potential problems that may occur. A proper dental hygiene routine can be devised by your dentist, but will normally consist of brushing twice a day and flossing once per day. Correct brushing techniques should also be employed.
Fissure sealants are a great way to help your teeth defend against cavities. Cavities often emerge in areas where the grooves in the teeth are deepest, as they cannot be reached as easily with brushing, and the bacteria can become more concentrated. Fissure sealants work to lightly fill in the gaps in order to remove any deep grooves where cavities may begin. No anaesthetic or surgery is needed, and the procedure can be completed within one single session.
Sport can be a fun and engaging way to get in your exercise, and we, as a dental practice, support any kind of health and well-being. However, we recognise that there are some significant risks to sport that can involve breaking or knocking out of teeth. Therefore, if you are looking for a dentist in Mackay, that can provide protection, then we recommend investing in a mouthguard. Mouthguards provide a support that will allow you to play sports without having to worry as much about dental injuries.
Cosmetic options for damaged teeth
If a tooth has been slightly damaged, for example chipping or cracking, then there are several options available in order to fix the damage, but also provide a clean finish to your tooth. Cosmetic bonding is an option, which uses a tooth coloured resin to cover up damage to the enamel and will protect the tooth from any further exposure. The main danger about tooth damage, is that the tooth will be exposed to bacteria and which may even infect the root, which can destroy the tooth. Veneers are also an option, and allow the teeth to be refitted and re-styled, but provide a strong protection for the future.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
