General Dental Services Gold Coast
White fillings refer to a material designed for placement inside teeth to restore decayed, broken or chipped teeth. Made of resin, they’re safe, compatible and adhere to the tooth surface with a bonding agent.
We use white fillings for maximum tooth preservation with minimal preparation needed. Our fillings are aesthetic and will be colour matched to your natural tooth’s colour so no-one will know. We can also safely remove old amalgam fillings and replace them with white fillings.
Facial Pain, Teeth Grinding & Headaches
The joint that connects our jaw to our skull is called the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). It allows the jaw to move freely so we can eat, talk and laugh. Any problems with this joint can result in headaches, migraines, inflammation, muscle spasms, nerve pain and tightness in the face, neck and shoulders.
Our qualified practitioners can help you with TMJ related discomfort and provide a wide range of cost-effective solutions.
Wisdom teeth are the very back teeth on either side of the upper and lower jaw. They are the last teeth to erupt and usually appear between ages 17-25 years old.
Wisdom teeth only need to be removed if they grow sideways, are partially emerged or become impacted or trapped beneath the gum and bone. We may recommend removal to eliminate problems such as pain, bacterial and plaque build-up, cysts, overcrowding and teeth misalignment.
We can safely perform most wisdom tooth extractions at GCDD but more difficult cases may require day surgery under general anaesthetic or referral to an oral surgeon.
Oral Cancer Screening
We provide the latest technology in oral cancer screening to identify oral cancer, precancerous conditions and other abnormal lesions at an early stage to help save lives.
Sealants are placed in the fissures of the back teeth to prevent sticky foods from getting stuck in the grooves. They’re made of white resin and can be placed using a non-invasive procedure.
Typically, young teenagers are the main target group for fissure sealants as their developing teeth are more vulnerable to weakness and can have deep grooves that are difficult to clean.
Oral Hygiene Program
A dentist check-up on a regular basis and an effective daily oral hygiene routine is the best prevention against tooth decay, bad breath, gum disease and overall poor oral health.
Our oral health therapist and hygienist provides all our patients with regular appointments for scale and clean and offers oral hygiene instructions on correct brushing and flossing techniques. We also offer an EMS Airflow machine for more efficient cleaning for those patients with more stubborn staining and sensitive teeth.
