Did you know that most health fund benefits reset on 1st July. Every year most health funds give you a set benefit amount for your rebate and if you don't use this benefit you forfeit it.
It’s important to keep track of your health fund benefits to help make the best use of them. Health funds can reset at different times of the year however, most commonly reset at either the end of the calendar or the financial year. With that in mind, it is important to check when your benefits will renew and ensure you don’t miss out on all that you are entitled to.
Call us on 07 4725 3366 to make an appointment before the end of the financial year.
WHY X-RAYS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR DENTAL EXAMINATION
Radio graph examination of the mouth and teeth is important in the diagnosis and management of many dental conditions. Radio graphs (X-Rays) are used to detect problems that may not be seen during your routine dental examination before signs and symptoms occur.
Examples of such dental conditions can include cysts, infection, tooth decay, tartar under the gums and bone loss from gum disease.
Thinking about bleaching your teeth but want more information? At Courtney Dental we use the Philips Zoom in chair whitening procedure which provides amazing results. If you have existing crowns, veneers fillings or artificial teeth it’s important to remember that they WILL NOT change colour.
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.
