Comprehensive evaluations are the best way to prevent more serious dental health problems. By letting us check on the health of your teeth routinely, we can prevent cavities, gum disease and other serious dental problems.

We also involve a periodic thorough assessment of your oral tissues and supporting tissues and can help detect underlying diseases of the mouth and elsewhere in the body.

The goal of general dentistry is to evaluate your condition and to help you obtain and maintain the best oral health possible. General dentistry gives you a smile you can be proud of by repairing decayed or damaged teeth and by making gums healthy and helping you maintain them.

General dentistry involves any part of your mouth. Whether you need to have a tooth extracted, or you need to have advanced dental work performed like filling cavities or root canals. General dentistry can even provide you with solutions to chronic bad breath, grinding, headaches or snoring.

Tooth Coloured Fillings

In most situations, we will use a tooth coloured filling for you. However, in some situations especially on the back teeth or heavily filled teeth, they may not be best treatment for you. You may even have some fillings in your mouth where food always gets stuck between your teeth. As well as being very annoying and sometimes painful, it's a very unhealthy situation as you are more prone to gum disease as well as recurrent decay. In these situations a metal filling or a crown may be placed. This will always be discussed with you prior to placement to get your approval. Remember, the choice is yours!

If you live in the Townsville region, and think you need a filling please book an appointment online at Absolutely Dental or phone 07 4723 8100 to speak to our lovely staff.

Preventative Dentistry

Check Up & Clean

A regular check up & clean, (recommended every 6mths) will give your dentist  the opportunity to give your mouth a complete check over, and see if there are any issues forming. This is preventative dentistry.

If left untreated, these issues can become more painful and costly later on down the track.

Often, patients will wait until they feel pain before making an appointment - however at this stage it is often too late to be a simple fix! This can cause pain in your mouth... and your wallet.

Make sure to book your 6 monthly appointment at your next visit, or make an appointment when your recall is due, (we will send you a letter or give you a call).
