Preventive Dentistry

Our practice has a firm belief in the importance of preventative dental care throughout your life. Regular checkups are the best ‘teeth insurance’  allowing us to ‘nip issues in the bud’ before they become more serious and more costly to treat. Together we will work out the best check up interval for you, usually between 6 and 12 months. At each checkup our general dentists at Chermside Family Dental carefully examine each tooth, your gums, jaw joint and soft tissues. We give you advice to ensure you know how to best care for your teeth because at Chermside Family Dental, we care for your family’s smile!

Our Tips for Maintaining Healthy Teeth

  • Eat well balanced healthy meals. Limit snacking between meals and keep sugary and acidic foods and drinks as a treat.
  • Brush and floss your teeth twice a day and use fluoridated toothpaste. The fluoride helps protect your teeth against acids and sugar.
  • Drink lots of water, especially fluoridated water.
  • Regular dental check-ups at Chermside Family Dental allow our dentists to help you improve your dental health by cleaning your teeth and identifying potential issues.
  • Who is spoiling your kids rotten? Dob in the sugar bandit!

Fillings

At Chermside Family Dental, fillings are placed to help restore or rebuild worn, damaged or decayed teeth. This is an important treatment for both adult and baby (deciduous) teeth. Fillings nowadays are generally white, using composite resin. With an adhesive tooth coloured filling (white fillings) we are able to match the filling to your tooth shade, resulting in an aesthetic cosmetic white filling.

Crowns and Veneers

Crowns and Veneers are ways of restoring your smile with a strong and aesthetic material. Crowns and veneers require our dentists to work closely with our Brisbane-based dental technician to achieve an optimal result for you.

Examples of when a crown may be beneficial for you:

  • Appearance improvement: badly discoloured or misshapen teeth can be rejuvenated with a crown to improve your smile.
  • Strengthen a cracked tooth to prevent crack lines progressing further.
  • Relieve the sensitivity of a cracked tooth.
  • Situations when a filling isn’t suitable for the tooth, this could be due to the size of the filling required as the material is stronger.
