Preventing decay and disease with our dental Coorparoo
It is important to visit your dental Coorparoo on a regular basis and we recommend that you and your family have routine appointments every 6 months to make sure that your teeth are healthy and that your gums are free of disease. Most of us maintain a good dental hygiene routine at home. We brush our teeth twice a day, floss after meals and our mouth is free of toothache or other symptoms. However, did you know that you may have a good dental hygiene routine and no toothache or bleeding gums, but many dental issues are asymptomatic to begin with yet develop quickly and can result in irreversible damage to your teeth if left untreated.
If you visit our dental Coorparoo on a regular basis, here at Brisbane Laser Dentist we are able to identify unwanted dental conditions early on and treat them quickly and successfully to prevent more complex dental issues in the future. Gum disease and periodontal disease begin underneath our gum tissue around our teeth. Food particles and bacteria become compacted in this area and although we brush our teeth and floss between the teeth, often the toothbrush or floss cannot get under the surface, resulting in the build-up of plaque and tartar. When plaque hardens the tartar builds up around the gum and this can remain undetected if you avoid the dentist. If you continue to avoid the dentist although your teeth may not hurt you may find that over time they become loose. This is because plaque and tartar result in periodontal disease which results in tooth loss. Therefore, it is very important that you visit our dental Coorparoo on a regular basis so that we can clean underneath the gum line, remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth and make sure that they are clean and healthy to prevent irreversible damage and tooth loss in the future.
Cavities and tooth decay
We will also make sure that your teeth are free of cavities and decay. A cavity is also asymptomatic until it reaches the nerve of the tooth by which point you may require a root canal or a tooth extraction. This can be prevented by undergoing regular examinations at the dentist so visit our website to book an appointment online or give us a call and find an appointment which is suitable for you and your family in order that we can carry out a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums. We will be able to identify any signs of decay and disease and remove any excess plaque or tartar from your mouth to enable you to enjoy a happy and healthy smile.
Mouth cancer screening
Our dental Coorparoo can also identify tumours or other signs of oral cancer so speak to our dentist if you have any concerns and make sure that your mouth is free of any signs or symptoms. Many dental issues can only be identified using X-rays or specialist intraoral scans so please do not delay, visit us at Brisbane Laser Dentist to see our dentist in Coorparoo as soon as possible.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
