General Dentistry

Both Dr Georgia Sheahan, Dr Kristine El-Atem and Dr Darius Khadembaschi welcome you to North Brisbane Dental Clinic and look forward to providing you with personalised dentistry for a healthy, beautiful smile.

The goal of general dentistry is to help patients achieve and maintain good oral health so they can smile confidently and eat the foods they enjoy. General dentistry encompasses preventive, restorative and teeth replacement dentistry. We also provide gum treatments to control periodontal disease.

We believe in educating and informing our patients to take control of their oral health and overall wellness.

Preventive Dentistry

Avoiding dental conditions by maintaining home care, check-ups and cleans is the best insurance for your smile.

We also believe in early detection of conditions such as decay, infection and bone loss. Evaluating routine x-rays assist in identifying problems early.

We also offer the following preventive services:

  • Sealants
  • Sports mouth guards
  • Bruxism night guards

Each preventive plan is personalised to meet the needs of our patients.

Restorative Dentistry

The ability to repair teeth without metal components results in aesthetic and durable dentistry.

Fillings – seal teeth after cavity treatment
Crowns – repair broken or damaged teeth
Onlays – cover part of the tooth, including the cusp
Inlays – cover part of the tooth inside the cusp
Veneers – cosmetically enhance the appearance of teeth

We also replace old metal dentistry when it breaks down or at the request of our patients. This can brighten the overall appearance of your smile.

Teeth-Replacement Options

Every person is different and we embrace the variety of families we serve. We offer a number of choices to replace missing teeth and restore both function and comfort:

Dental implant – replaces missing teeth, including the root
Dental bridge – fills the gap left by a missing tooth
Partial denture – replaces multiple missing teeth
Complete denture – replaces all missing teeth on the upper or lower arch
Implant-retained dentures – uses 4 to 6 dental implants to anchor denture in place

When you face a dental extraction or tooth loss, we will discuss each of your options along with the pros and cons of each so you can make an informed choice for your smile.

Periodontal Treatment

Research continues to uncover more links between periodontal (gum) health and overall health. Gum disease, an inflammatory condition, puts heart health at risk and has also been linked to other conditions such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and respiratory illnesses. Gum disease can also develop during hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy and menopause.

With a customised treatment plan, we can help patients regain their oral health and protect their bodies.
