Kids Oral Health

Importance of Kids Oral Health

Kids Dentist Indooroopilly

Oral health is an essential part of overall health, and it is especially important for children. Proper oral care can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues.

It also ensures that children can eat, speak, and smile with confidence. By developing good oral care habits in childhood, children are more likely to maintain these habits into adulthood, leading to a healthier and happier life.

Our Indooroopilly Dentists recommend regular dental checkup for children every 6-12 months.

Why I need a crown after root canal treatment?

Why I need a Dental Crown after my Root Canal Treatment?

Same day crowns Indooroopilly

A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a type of dental restoration that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, or appearance.

A crown is typically placed after a root canal treatment because the procedure removes the nerve and blood supply from the tooth, making it more brittle and susceptible to fracture. A crown, also known as a cap, is a covering that is placed over the tooth to protect and strengthen it. The crown also helps to restore the tooth to its normal shape, size and function. Additionally, it can also help to prevent re-infection of the tooth.

We now do same day dental crowns in one appointment at Heritage Dental Group. Get in touch with our team for more information on same day crowns with CEREC CAD CAM technology.

A root canal treatment is a procedure that is used to remove the infected or damaged pulp (nerve and blood vessels) from inside a tooth. The pulp is removed through the top of the tooth, leaving the root canals empty. After the pulp is removed, the root canals are cleaned, shaped and sealed to prevent bacteria from entering them again.

Five Tips to Avoid Toothache

Five Tips to avoid toothache

Emergency dentist Indooroopilly

How to avoid dental emergency with these five simple tips?

Brushing your teeth Brushing your teeth is one of the most important things you can do to prevent toothaches. Brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste helps remove plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on your teeth. If plaque isn’t removed, it can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dentist or dental hygienist. Brushing also helps freshen your breath and remove surface stains on your teeth.

Cleaning in-between your teeth Flossing is also essential for preventing toothaches. Flossing helps remove plaque and food particles that can become trapped between your teeth, where a toothbrush can’t reach. Flossing also stimulates the gums, which can help improve their overall health.

In this appointment dentist will count teeth with your child, take pictures of teeth and show your child how to brush teeth.

WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD FIRST SEE THE DENTIST?

It is recommended that a child should visit a dentist when the first tooth appears or on the first birthday. We sometimes think this is too early as your child may not have many teeth, but this visit is all about becoming familiar with the dentist, dental surgery environment and gives the dentist and parents opportunity to discuss early childhood dental problems, brushing techniques and effect of eating & drinking habits on teeth.

Looking after your teeth during Holidays

How to look after your teeth during Christmas New Year Holiday Break?

Christmas Holiday Break

With the end of 2022 approaching fast, busy festive time of the year is here again. Time of the year when our teeth get exposed to sweet, acidic foods and drinks. Large amounts of sweet foods and drinks along with bacteria in the mouth produce acids which weakens your enamel and cause cavities. Tooth decay can develop in-between teeth in a very short time if food debris get stuck in-between teeth and left there for long time. Look after your oral health and enjoy the Christmas New year break with smile!
