What is General Dentistry?

General dentistry covers all the basics of good oral health and hygiene. A general dentist is focused on the diagnosis of potential issues, treatment of any current issues and prevention of future dental problems. Oral health plays a key role in your overall physical health, making general dentistry one of the most important aspects of dental care.

Services Offered by Divine Smiles General Dentistry In Brisbane

To ensure you and your family can enjoy a pain-free, outstanding smile, our general dentistry services in Brisbane include:

Check-Ups

A thorough dental check-up and examination are recommended every 6-12 months. During a check-up, your dentist will use a small tool called a dental pick to gently inspect the surface of your teeth for signs of decay or damage. At our conveniently located dental clinics, this is a standard service offered at each appointment.

Fluoride Treatment

A preventative treatment, fluoride is most often applied at the end of your check-up, scale and clean. Fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel on your teeth to make cavities less likely. This treatment is pain-free and takes as little as 15 minutes to perform.

X-rays

A key diagnostic tool, dental x-rays are used as part of our general dentistry services in Brisbane to check for signs of decay between teeth, teeth position, impacted wisdom teeth and more. Dental x-rays are quick, painless and safe.

Fillings

If during your check-up your dentist finds a cavity, they may suggest a filling. The decay will be cleaned away thoroughly and a filling placed in the cavity. Fillings are made of composite resin, amalgam, gold or silver. Your dentist will discuss your preferred filling material with you before the procedure beginning.  

 

Fillings are quick to carry out and most often performed under local anesthetic to ensure pain-free treatment.

Gum care

Should you experience recurrent gum inflammation, pain or bleeding, your general dentistry appointment may include specialist gum care. At Divine Smiles, we also offer a dedicated hygiene department to help our patients with their oral health. 

 

Healthy gums play a key role in your teeth’s longevity and overall health. Gum infections have been linked to incidences of stroke, diabetes and heart disease so it’s important to ensure your oral hygiene is a daily priority.

Infections deep inside the teeth are not only painful but require specialised treatment known as root canal therapy. During a root canal, your dentist will gently clean the infection from inside the tooth, removing the pulp and nerves down to the roots of the tooth. 

 

An antibiotic solution is used to ensure the infection is eradicated and then a crown will be placed over the tooth to protect it. A root canal can require several visits and is always carried out under local anesthetic to ensure the procedure is pain-free.

Crowns and bridges

Not just for root canal therapy, crowns and bridges are also used to help restore smiles. Crowns are most often used to strengthen weak or broken teeth, while bridges can be used to fill gaps in your smile. Crowns and bridges are considered both cosmetic and restorative and can improve the functionality of your bite as well as give you a great smile. 

 

At Divine Smiles, as part of our general dentistry in Brisbane, we offer state-of-the-art CEREC same-day crowns, so you can experience your best smile, sooner.

Preventative dentistry

One of the core services we offer as part of general dentistry at our Brisbane clinic is preventative dentistry. The goal of every great dentist is to have you maintain appropriate oral health and keep your natural teeth. 

 

To help you achieve this we offer preventative dentistry services such as fluoride treatments, fissure sealing and deep cleaning. We also focus on educating our patients on proper oral hygiene habits such as correct brushing and flossing techniques.

Need A Scale and Teeth Clean Brisbane?

As part of your dental check-up, Brisbane dentists will remove any hardened plaque along the gum line (a major cause of gum disease) and remove any superficial staining. This procedure is quick to undertake and most patients experience little to no discomfort. The best part is you will leave our practice feeling fresh, clean, and proud of your smile.
