Tooth sensitivity is short sharp pain arising from exposed root in response to brushing, dietary acids or change in temperature.
Over the weekend our Dental Hygienist Nicole attended a continuing education course in Townsville, one of the lectures was presented by a representative from GC Tooth Mousse and Tooth Mousse Plus (The plus has added flouride). She learnt some valuable information, which has been passed onto the team to assist in treating and advising our patients here at Courtney Dental.
At Courtney dental we try to work hard so we can play hard. Well mostly we work hard, when we aren’t in the kitchen eating.
If your a regular patient and come to visit us often you may wonder why we ask you to update your medical information every 6 months. we know this process is tedious, so lets explain why we do this. Dentists have an obligation to keep and update dental records in accordance with the guidelines of the Dental Board of Australia. We cannot release any diagnosis or office visit information without your consent.
Your health conditions can change at any time, you may change type or dosage of medication or stop taking some medication completely. You may have an operation, significant illness, or accident. Things change, which is why we require the medical information to be updated every 6 months to keep our records up to date and the dentist aware of your specific medical situation.
We have news! We love being part of the community and helping local families improve their oral health. It is important to share the message that staying active, eating a healthy balanced diet and taking care of your oral health can have such a positive impact on your life.
