Visiting the dentist in Mackay
We all know that we should go to see the dentist for a thorough check up and to have a professional clean ideally every six months. Some people who have great oral health and who have a sound oral hygiene routine can get away with visiting their dentist at Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay once a year. This is as long as no changes in their oral health are observed.
These negative impacts might not seem like that are associated with your teeth, but if you view your body in a holistic way, that is to say that the entire body is connected, then you would be surprised at the intimate links that connect each and every part of your body.
Hormonal changes such as menopause, puberty and pregnancy all present risks to your teeth and gums. Stress, dietary changes and health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease can also affect your oral health.
By looking at your body in a holistic way, and viewing a visit to your dentist in Mackay as a regular part of ensuring the entire wellbeing of your whole body, you may benefit from detecting any issues early. Early detection allows us to treat issues quickly and potentially prevent you from needing to undergo more complicated procedures that are not only more costly, but can be life altering as well.
Who should visit the dentist?
Everybody needs to regularly visit their dentist in Mackay in order to maintain appropriate dental health. From babies who have just got their first tooth, to older patients who may have lost all their teeth a long time ago, we are able to answer your questions, address any concerns that you might have and enable you to help get the oral health and smile you want.
The sooner you bring your child to visit the dentist for the first time, the better. We aim to establish a positive connection with both parent and child in order to bring about a lifelong positive relationship between patient and dentist. This can help reduce dental fear in children and lead to good oral health habits that will prove advantageous to your child for their lifetime.
When we can detect incorrect bites early, we are able to treat them as soon as possible so that treatment can be underway and completed faster as well. We can also spot early signs of decay and provide you with several options that will be able to prevent further decay.
Preventive dentistry is crucial with children and we enjoy teaching both parents and children in an informative and entertaining way about how to brush their teeth and care for their mouths.
Older patients, and those with dentures, can benefit from a range of different solutions that will potentially improve the quality of their lives; giving them the chance to eat the foods they love without concern. We invite you to talk to us about your options at your leisure.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
