Don’t Ignore Tooth Pain! Book Your Affordable Emergency Dental Care In Brisbane NOW.

Affordable Emergency Dental Care – How We Care For You If you’ve ever had a toothache, you’ll know just how much it can ruin your day. Too often though, people choose to soldier on, despite the pain and discomfort. But delaying treatment for dental pain can result in a minor and easily treated problem growing into something much worse. Don’t ignore your dental pain! It’s possible to find affordable emergency dental care to relieve your tooth pain swiftly and gently. Triage care: stop the pain immediately, then plan further treatment Dental pain can be incredibly debilitating. Using a triage system, your dentist will first aim to alleviate the discomfort you’re experiencing. Once pain-free, you and your dentist can discuss any further treatment that might be required to resolve your dental issue. This is especially useful if you have chipped or cracked a tooth. Broken teeth can expose the nerve, which then makes eating and drinking painful. An initial stop-gap solution can soothe the pain then and there with further treatment scheduled for a later time. Treat the problem early with affordable emergency dental care! Payment plans for emergency dental care Putting off treating your dental emergency for financial reasons? Not only do you deserve to be pain-free, but delaying treatment can result in a costlier problem in the long run. In the case of broken teeth, leaving the nerve exposed can lead to permanent damage, which can be much harder to treat and can even result in the damaged tooth needing to be extracted. Payment plans are available to make affordable emergency dental care a possibility for everyone, even when you don’t have the money upfront. Pay as you go Are you avoiding treating your strong tooth pain because of the upfront financial outlay? If your dental treatment requires multiple visits over time, paying for each appointment as you go means affordable emergency dental care is within reach. Gentle and competitively priced dentists are always busy and it can be tricky to get an appointment for a standard visit. At Rob Duhig Dentists, emergency care is prioritised as needed. Each day, time is blocked out for emergency walk-in appointments, including some nights, so it makes sense to call and check on availability. Affordable emergency dental care can be performed on short notice, relieving your tooth pain and preventing further damage. Call Robert Duhig, the gentle Brisbane dentist, to secure your appointment NOW on (07) 3269...

Scared Of Orthodontist Bills? Pediatric Dentistry Could Help!

Scared Of Orthodontist Bills? Pediatric Dentistry Could Help!

Pediatric Dentistry Could Prevent Painful Costs Later On! If you’re looking at your young child’s crooked teeth and thinking they’re likely to need braces, it may be time to consider pediatric dentistry. Some parents feel that dentist visits are an unnecessary cost for younger children, preferring to wait until all the ‘adult teeth’ have come through, but think again. You are far better off getting your child’s teeth checked now to prevent bigger problems down the track! What does a pediatric dentist do? A pediatric dentist has experience in treating the specific teething and oral health problems faced by children. Pediatric dentistry clinics are designed to make your children feel comfortable during their visit, ensuring they trust their dentist. This sets them up for a lifetime of good dental care. A pediatric dentist is also able to identify the ‘trouble spots’ in your child’s teeth and gums, potentially nipping problems in the bud before you need to save for costly orthodontic treatments when your child hits their teens. What problems will a pediatric dentist look for? Your child’s ‘baby teeth’ will come in between birth and around 3 years of age. Sometime between the ages of 5 and 12, these baby teeth will fall out and be replaced by permanent teeth. It’s around this time that many parents and carers begin to notice the telltale signs of dental problems like overbites, crooked teeth or crowded gums. Pediatric dentistry visits will assess: Teeth that have yet to come through. When a baby tooth falls out, usually a permanent tooth will replace it within a few weeks. Sometimes ‘adult’ teeth will take longer to come through. When this happens, other teeth move around to fill the gap, causing crowding. Underbites and overbites. Problems such as lingua tori and other mouth shape issues such as underbites or overbites can be identified early. In some cases, your pediatric dentist may suggest a plate or mouthguard to assist. A plate may seem expensive for a child or tween, but it can prevent the far more costly option of a full set of braces later-on. Permanent teeth that grow through before baby teeth come out. In these cases, permanent teeth erupt through the gum behind, in front of, or next to the primary tooth, which has yet to come out. If the primary tooth is not loose and you can’t pull it out, this may cause issues with crowding, which can lead to speech difficulties and problems chewing. Wisdom teeth. Every child is different, but wisdom teeth can be very problematic for all ages. X-rays are performed on your child to assess whether their wisdom teeth will impact other molars.
