What general care does a dentist provide?
Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay offer a whole range of general dentistry services in order to provide total care for not only a patient’s mouth, but their body as a whole.
We firmly believe that the body is a holistic organism and as a result, the body reacts to how we treat our teeth and gums. New research is constantly emerging regarding the intimate links that seem to connect our entire body and the way it reacts organically to different pressures. We can say that heart disease in some instances has been seen to be linked with gum disease, but can only offer theories as to why.
We can understand that through poor oral health, poor nutrition can eventuate which can lead to a number of degenerative effects upon the body. As we age, we need to be more aware of the health of teeth and gums so that we are able to support our bodies nutritionally.
Children in their first few years of life grow at an amazing speed. By taking care of their milk teeth in a friendly and entertaining way, we hope to establish a strong foundation to build on, so that they can enjoy a healthy relationship with their dentist in Mackay in the future.
There is so much that we can do for you that you might not have even been aware of. We go beyond filling and drilling. We create new smiles, we restore former ones and we aim to have you keep your teeth for life.
What alternative treatments do we provide?
As professionals trained in the anatomy and physiology of the face, neck and mouth areas, problems relating to these areas can be dealt with by us, not only your doctor. In fact, doctors may refer you to see us regarding some issues that you may have thought best to visit them about.
A lot of us snore. It actually can become a serious health hazard to the snorers and their loved ones as extreme exhaustion, memory loss, headaches and other symptoms can often interfere with day to day life.
By installing a device in your mouth that you can wear comfortably when you go to sleep, we can shift forward the lower jaw slightly to allow the over relaxed muscles in the back of the throat to no longer vibrate against one another. This can greatly reduce the instances of snoring and sleep apnea.
We can also provide people who grind their teeth in their sleep a chance to relieve the pressure in their jaws by providing them with a similar device. Serious jaw pain, headaches and worn down teeth are a sign of this condition which is often related to stress and often the slumberer doesn’t even know they are doing it.
More than a simple dentist in Mackay, we are a modern day practice that has all the mod cons but still hold true to tried and tested traditions of integrity, honesty and compassion. Your health and well-being is of the utmost importance to us and we welcome you with open arms into our family.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
