What Services Does a General Dentist on the Gold Coast Offer?
We’d love to give you a little bit of information around some of the most common requests we have from patients. Although this list is not exclusive, it does offer a window into the types of needs we can fulfil. General dentistry goes beyond fillings and regular checkups! If you’re unsure about whether our team can serve your needs, speak to our friendly staff today.
Checkups and cleans
Prevention is always better than cure, which is why we encourage both children and adults to get regular checkups and cleans. This not only allows us to keep track of how children’s dental development is coming along, but also means we can nip any potential tooth or gum disease in the bud before it takes hold. Some children also may benefit from orthodontic or specialist referral early on, and it is important to use this window of opportunity while children are young to ensure that small problems don’t turn into large ones! For adults we also tailor the frequency of your exam and clean appointments to your needs – some people need more regular preventative care than others.
Needing a filling is nothing to be embarrassed about. It can happen to anyone, but the thing is to make sure that you get it taken care of as soon as possible. At Fresh Family Dental, we offer fillings to ensure you’re out of pain and your teeth won’t experience any further damage. At Fresh Family Dental we always strive to make filling appointments as painless as possible. Dr Andrea endeavours to minimize anxiety around treatment by using thorough anaesthesia (numbing) and constantly checking in with her patients to make sure that they are pain free.
Whilst it might seem easier to buy a cheap alternative at the supermarket, getting mouthguards from your local Gold Coast dentist is a safer and more effective option. Not only do the mouthguards last longer, they are better sculpted to you or your child’s mouth meaning less pain and greater protection. When it comes to your child’s teeth, safety is paramount. Talk to the team today about organising your own personalised mouthguards.
Dental implants are a common way of restoring your mouth to its former glory should you lose a tooth or need one replaced. By replacing the root of the tooth, a realistic cap can be placed on top for the most natural looking tooth replacement possible. Dr Andrea has a team of specialists she refers to for both the placement of the implant and the custom production of the crown. All laboratory work is done locally (on the Gold Coast) for the best possible outcome.
Root Canal Therapy
You might require root canal therapy when a tooth has undergone decay to the degree where the pulp is diseased or dying and fillings simply won’t do. Root canal therapy (RCT) is the treatment for diseased or dying pulp. At Fresh Family Dental, we can perform this procedure in house; however, in rare cases, we might refer you to a trusted specialist to get the job done in the best way possible. RCT usually takes between one to three appointments. People are often very fearful of root canal therapy as it has a very negative stigma attached. Please rest assured that if you choose to take this treatment option, costs, risks and benefits will all be outlined and discussed comprehensively before any work is started. When treatment starts and the tooth being treated has been properly numbed up, many patients actually fall asleep in the dental chair!
Also referred to as a tooth removal, an extraction is a commonly performed procedure when a tooth is damaged or diseased to the point where it needs to come out. Because it is such a common procedure, Dr. Andrea is well equipped and trained to serve your needs. With modern anaesthetics available, a tooth removal does not have to be a painful experience as many people
often fear. In fact, in most cases a tooth removal or extraction is a relatively low stress affair, and the patient can leave feeling a lot better than when they came in.
