Five Reasons We’re Unlike ANY Other North Brisbane Dentists!

At Robert Duhig Dental, we like to do things a little differently. We pride ourselves on providing gentle dental care that sets us apart from other North Brisbane dentists. Here are a few key reasons as to why you should choose to put your teeth in our hands. Breath Clinic We have a state-of-the-art system designed to target and treat problems to do with bad breath. Our goal is to increase your confidence so you can go about your life without worrying about people being bowled over by your bad breath! We use the Oral Chroma (Halicheck) to analyse your breath to figure out what the problem is. It’s a simple analysis that a lot of other North Brisbane dentists just DON’T offer. We’re proud to have this as part of our treatment program and our patients report fantastic results. It’s a point of difference that we’re very happy with. You can read more about breath analysis here. Clear Correct We’re also proud of our Clear Correct program. This is innovative technology that provides an alternative to traditional braces. If the teeth in your family need straightening, this is a great opportunity to do so in a discreet manner that removes a lot of the social stigma surrounding traditional braces. Clear Correct is low maintenance, comfortable and designed to perfectly align teeth which not only gives you a dazzling smile but improves gum and mouth health, too. Again, this is not a service offered by many other North Brisbane dentists, and our customers are delighted with the results the program is offering. You can read more about Clear Correct here. Generations of Making a Difference Robert Duhig has been practising in the Sandgate area for 30 years. He’s an absolute part of the community, and as members of his team, we’re proud to carry on the tradition. You can trust the gentle hands of someone who has had the wellbeing of the community as his focus for generations. Child Benefits Dental Schedule Robert Duhig Dental are proud to be a practice that supports the Child Benefits Dental Schedule. We firmly believe that everyone should have the right to access great healthcare. You can read more about the CBDS here. Gentle Approach to Dentistry Designed to Put You at Ease Above all else, we believe in a stress-free, gentle approach to dentistry. It’s often a field that people associate with fear and anxiety. We’re here to set the record straight. Not all North Brisbane dentists are created equal. But at Robert Duhig Dental, we provide the very best dental service while putting your concerns – and your comfort – first. We’re the North Brisbane Dentists you can trust. Get in...

Trend In Instagram Teeth Whitening Products Causing MAJOR Damage to Teen Teeth

Instagram influencers and celebrities often spotlight different products to their audiences. They receive income for these sponsored posts. These posts are most often health, beauty and lifestyle products that are quickly snapped up by their faithful followers. One of the most spruiked devices that we’re seeing are teeth whitening products. Influencers on Instagram speak and write in glowing terms about the various home teeth whitening products that they’re advertising. Gullible teens are quickly convinced that they’re in desperate need of shiny white teeth. They often have low self-esteem so look for a ‘quick fix’ to make them feel better about themselves. The solution seems so obvious to them – by using the same teeth whitening products as Insta-famous people, they’ll be beautiful, too! What these teens (and their parents) DON’T know is that these products are often dangerous and could do serious, long-term damage to their teeth. Here’s what you need to know RIGHT NOW.   There Is No Miracle Over-The-Counter Cure The pursuit of the perfect smile is driving teens to pressure their parents to purchase dangerous teeth whitening products. These DIY products quite often damage the natural development of tooth enamel – rendering teeth in serious need of in-chair help to recover. These products are completely unsuitable for those under the age of 18. Teeth whiteners play host to chemicals like hydrogen peroxide. These harm the dental tissue that rests underneath tooth enamel. The protein inside is effectively broken down into pieces – heralding seriously bad news for users.   Self Esteem and the Instagram Teen It’s like shooting fish in a barrel when it comes to making teenagers feel inadequate. They’re struggling to find their place in the world and forming their own identities. This makes them ripe for the picking when it comes to brands who use advertising techniques that play on insecurities in order to sell products. Teeth whitening products that are spruiked over this platform are not in line with recommendations from dental professionals.   In Chair Without A Care We only get one set of adult teeth so it’s important to trust the professionals when it comes to dental procedures. At best, cheap, quick-fix solutions simply won’t work, but at worst, they can spell a lifetime of compromised dental health. Robert Duhig Dental offers in-chair teeth whitening services that are safe and in line with best practice.   Get in contact today to save your teen’s teeth!...
