As part of a healthy lifestyle it is important to visit your Coorparoo family dental practice on a regular basis, at least once every six months and keep up with your preventive appointments making sure that your teeth are free of decay and disease. Unfortunately here in Australia, dental phobia is very common throughout the population, many people avoid visiting the dentist on a regular basis and some people do not visit the dentist at all.
It is important that we keep our mouths healthy. Your mouth is the gateway to your body and if you suffer from poor dental health than this can affect your overall wellbeing. If you have an infection in your mouth, it can travel to other parts of the body such as your heart, resulting in cardiovascular disease and other devastating illnesses. If you do not visit the dentist and take care of your teeth from an early age then you can develop cavities, tooth decay and gum disease which will mean that you require extensive restorative dental treatment later on in life. You may even cause irreversible damage to your teeth which will then result in your teeth becoming loose and falling out, or you may need to undergo a tooth extraction. It is important that you and your family visit the dentist on a regular basis to prevent such complications in the future. You will be saving yourself money, and you will also save yourself from many hours in the dentist’s chair.
Laser dental treatment
Many people are scared that dental treatment is going to be painful or uncomfortable; speak to your dentist and find out about laser dental treatment. Laser dental treatment is an excellent option for those who are scared of the dentist. It helps you address your dental needs with the use of lasers as an alternative to traditional dental treatments and procedures. Laser dental treatment can be carried out with no pain or discomfort, little or no bleeding and your dentist can avoid the use of needles and drills which often scare patients and create reluctance towards visiting the dentist.
To make sure that you are comfortable, your dentist at the practice will explain every procedure and do everything they can so that you know exactly what is going on and that the procedure will not hurt you or be uncomfortable. There have been many advances in dental technology in the last few decades, and non-invasive dental procedures can be used to address your dental needs. Teeth can be cleaned and plaque and tartar can be removed using specialised Air flow technology, eliminating the need for scraping and the use of sharp tools. Decay and disease can also be treated easily and efficiently using laser dental technology. Book an appointment for all your family and visit your family dental practice as soon as possible and make sure that it becomes a regular part of your life, so that you can enjoy a happy and healthy mouth for many years to come.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
