Dry Mouth: Causes, Risks and Management

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with the feeling that your mouth is as dry as the Sahara Desert? Sadly, this is not overly uncommon, (especially if you’ve enjoyed some alcohol the previous night) and can be quite uncomfortable. This run of the mill “dry mouth” is due to dehydration, and is easily relieved by….you guessed it…..drinking water!

True xerostomia (the fancy term for dry mouth) is a different ball game. This is due to a decrease in your saliva flow and can have a serious impact on your oral health. There are several possible causes of dry mouth. These include, but are not limited to,

No More Pain: When It's Time for a Root Canal

Root canal treatment might be the most feared of the dental procedures. This reputation is really unfair, however, because root canals relieve pain rather than cause it. Not to mention that root canals are a tooth-saving procedure that can save you time and money over time.

Here are a few ways to determine if it’s time to seek root canal treatment in our Wooloowin, QLD dental clinic.

Pain or Sensitivity

Pain caused by a tooth infection can creep in slowly, may come and go or can feel pretty severe at times. Pain is an indication that you need professional treatment. Our caring, experienced and gentle team is here for you when you need ...

Teeth Whitening

Why North Brisbane Dental Clinic is Choosing Zoom Teeth Whitening?

Clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth using Zoom under the supervision of an accredited dentist not only gives you the whitest teeth, it's also very safe. Zoom is the only whitening formula that contains relief ACP, which gives you greater lustre and protects enamel. As a result, Zoom teeth whitening treatment has no adverse effect on existing restorations (fillings or crowns) nor does it rub away, soften, damage or weaken the enamel.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Some people may experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during or after treatment. These symptoms typically disappear within 1-3 days after completion of the treatment. The ...

When does my child need braces?

This is quite a complex question to answer.  One of the key things to remember though is that there is no prescribed age that a child should be examined to determine whether they need braces or not.   Some children benefit from braces at 9 years of age and others when they are 15, as it depends largely on what dental development stage they are at.
For example, widening the palate is more effective in earlier years, when the palate has not finished growing. This type of treatment can make more room for teeth that would otherwise be crowded.
There are some behaviours or conditions you can keep an eye out for which ...

Emergencey Dental

A dental emergency can happen to any of us.  If you have a tooth knocked out or are suffering extreme pain from one of your teeth you should visit a dentist as soon as possible. 

In the case of an injury to a tooth, getting to a dentist quickly can mean the difference between saving or losing a tooth.

Following these suggestions may improve the chances of saving your tooth:

  • Handle the tooth carefully and try not to touch the root as it can be easily damaged.  The root is the part of the tooth that was inside the gum.
  • Keep the tooth moist by placing it into a cup of milk. If you ...

What does it cost to visit the dentist?

Here at North Brisbane Dental Clinic it costs between $150.00 - $224.00 for a check-up and clean, depending on whether you need x-rays. If you have private health cover, most or all of this amount will be covered.  You can easily check with them if you like.

 

Once we have given your teeth a good clean and examination we will then provide you with a treatment plan if anything else needs to be done.

 

An important point to make here is that we will not start any treatment plan without first giving you a quote.

 

As you can appreciate the costs of treatment plans can vary greatly depending on what needs to be ...
