We are a Coorparoo family dental – how can we help?
Taking care of your own mouth, teeth and gums can sometimes be overwhelming and difficult work, but taking care of an entire family’s worth of teeth can be even more so. Where children’s teeth are concerned, too, any discomfort they feel can be a lot harder for them to understand and therefore a lot more upsetting, so ideally you don’t want to wait to get help from our Coorparoo family dental. Here at Brisbane Laser Dentist, our patients are at the centre of every decision we make. Using innovation and education to guide our steps, we’ll listen to all of your concerns and have made a space where you can feel comfortable.
In this short article, we’ll talk you through just a few treatment options we provide that may help or offer some information when it comes to our Coorparoo family dental.
As mentioned before, discomfort from teeth can be a lot more upsetting for children, who often might not understand why it is happening or what they can do to help themselves. That is why it is important to look at emergency appointments and treatments with our Coorparoo family dental, as waiting for a routine appointment is not always an option. You cannot always account for problems with your teeth as they are more often than not unexpected, but we will always try to see you as soon as we can. We offer emergency appointments no matter what the problem is, including for toothache, chipped teeth, broken crowns, lost teeth, as well as fillings and abscesses.
Just as with the option to attend emergency appointments, attending routine dentistry appointments yourself and with your family is extremely important. During these routine appointments, X-rays may be taken and your mouth will be thoroughly examined. We will also take a detailed dental history and make note of any concerns you might have. Problems with your teeth are always better when caught early, so when you come in for your appointments or bring your children, we can often spot signs of tooth decay, gum disease or other infections and give help or provide advice. We can also offer advice on diets and cleaning schedules, which can be especially helpful when raising children or taking care of your teeth.
What you might not be aware of is that a diet can have a huge impact on the teeth of children or babies. By limiting the amount of sugar intake that your child has, you can improve their teeth and gums and establish healthy habits that will only help them as they enter their adult life. As soon as your child gets their very first tooth, plaque will be waiting around the corner and will immediately begin to build up. Introducing a cleaning routine will keep on top of this build-up and will also make it easier for your children to take care of their teeth as they start to age. Remember that it is important to use a toothbrush that is appropriate for their age, as adult toothbrushes may cause more damage than anything else!
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
