What Does a Smile Say?

Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay understands that a smile says more than just whether a person is happy or not. They believe that a smile speaks more than a 1000 words ever could, expressing emotions, benefiting one’s health, their perception at work and their social and romantic interests in life.

Should a person wish to get ahead in their business ventures, be perceived as more trustworthy, more intelligent and more attractive, then they should focus on how their smile looks so that they themselves are more comfortable and so that all important first impression is a good one.

A dentist in Mackay understands how important a smile is to every one of their patients and therefore offers a range of different treatments aimed to beautiful and restore the health of one’s teeth and gums. By keeping a mouth that is clean and healthy; free of disease and decay, patients are taking the first steps in ensuring that their teeth remain with them for life.

It is not uncommon to have some degree of fear of the dentist and as a result, people tend to avoid visiting their dental health care advisor until they experience some degree of pain or discomfort. Unfortunately, when pain persists, it is generally a sign of advanced disease which can result in the need for complex and often expensive restorative measures.

This further compounds the reasons behind dental fear in the first place, creating a vicious cycle that all dentists desperately wish to break. By visiting a dentist a couple of times a year and frequenting a hygienist who will keep teeth free of plaque and gums free from disease, people are ensuring that they do not have to resort to restorative measures to keep their mouth healthy.

How is this so?

Advancements in dental technology have allowed dental health care practitioners the opportunity to move beyond the ‘drill and fill’ stigma that has dogged them for decades. By using high magnification and lighting as well as digital scans with magnificent resolutions, they are able to detect signs of decay like never before.

This high level of preventive care gives both dentists and their patients a chance to keep a step ahead of potential disease, stopping it in its tracks with preventive measures and educating patients so that they can develop a hygiene routine that is personally beneficial to them, rather than just sticking with the average recommendations given to all.

Prevention is better than any cure and by using their skills and the advances in technology to their advantage, dentists are able to bring dental care to a new level that patients are able to benefit from greatly.

By seeing a dentist every 6 months and following their advice on how to care for their own teeth, people can ensure that they have a healthy smile that they can be proud to share with the world.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
