The Sunday Age kindly published the article Ignoring tooth pain is an unfulfilling move on September 3rd of 2017. You can read the article here
The article specifically discusses the detriment in ignoring tooth pain instead of seeing a dentist, and how leaving tooth pain can affect the nerve and may result in a root canal, which "usually costs between $1500 - $2500".
Remember to look out for discolouration, as "a discoloured tooth can indicate the nerves inside are dying or have died".
And most importantly, remember to visit the dentist regularly, "at least once a year and ideally twice. That way we can prevent problems from going further and leading to these expensive treatments".
The purpose built dental practice with stylish, clean and fine facilities enhanced by the state of the art technologies, ensures a new dawn of dentistry to Mount Eliza and the Peninsula.
Our highly experienced and expert team is lead by Principal Dentist, Dr Petunia Jacob. Dr Jacob has over 30 years of experience as a practising dentist and has been a highly regarded and sought after dentist in the Mount Eliza area for nearly 15 years.
At Healthy Smiles at Mount Eliza, we are passionate about what we do and we believe in helping our valued patients look after their oral health and make the most of their smiles with a choice of high quality treatments in the most appropriate and convenient way possible.
As we endeavour to bring better oral health to our community we are also focusing on dealing with dental phobia or fear of going to the dentist. We get a great sense of fulfilment in reducing this dental phobia one step at a time. It is great to see people take their oral health seriously and make six monthly dental visits a priority.
We are committed to our patients. We endeavour to see all dental emergencies on the same day and urgent appointments are scheduled for treatment as soon as possible. We allow enough time every working day for emergencies and we try and fit you in as soon as possible to relieve your pain or discomfort.
Healthy Smiles at Mount Eliza is the foundation principle of our practice - where we believe that a beautiful smile cannot be achieved unless you have healthy teeth, gums and good oral health. Using this principle, dentist Dr Petunia Jacob and her team deliver the latest general restorative and cosmetic dental treatments in a relaxing and caring environment.
