For fast and effective pictures of your teeth and mouth we use the latest technology available to record and capture the state of your dentition. A small wireless intra oral camera will help us demonstrate and show you in an instant, things you may not see yourself easily in your mouth. This image is then saved in your confidential patient chart for future reference and record keeping.
At Gold Coast Dental and Denture Centre we provide the latest technology in oral cancer screening. Oral ID fluorescence technology uses a blue light that allows the clinician to identify oral cancer, precancerous conditions, and other abnormal lesions at an early stage which can save lives.
Some of the risk factors are previous history of oral cancer, over 40 years of age, alcohol, smoking and using smokeless tobacco. Oral cancer incidence has increased over the last five years. It has a very high mortality rate due to its late stage discovery. Mortality of oral cancer is higher than the rates or cervical cancer, Hodgkin Lymphoma, testicular cancer and skin cancer. Book an appointment today at Gold Coast Dental and Denture Centre to have your teeth and mouth checked by our professional team.
Root canal treatment (also called Endodontic treatment) is sometimes necessary to save a tooth that has been badly damaged due to decay, disease or injury.
At Gold Coast Dental and Denture Centre we have invested in the latest technology to provide a safe and effective endodontic treatment to our patients. The use of a special motor called Reciproc® helps remove infected nerve from the tooth. This motor uses a single file per patient, so there is no chance of cross infection, less chance of instruments breaking inside the tooth, and by using this motor we can administer the right pressure and force to remove the infected nerve.
The objective of root canal treatment is to save a tooth as there is nothing stronger and better than your own tooth for biting and chewing.
At Gold Coast Dental and Denture Centre we have invested in the latest imaging technology available to minimise radiation exposure to our patients and staff. With the help of digital x-rays we can take fast and accurate images of your teeth to assess any defects, infections and cavities.
Our qualified technicians and dental prosthetist have their own dental laboratory where, with the help of the latest equipment and technology, we fabricate all our appliances. Our prosthetist will take the impressions in the surgery and will start fabricating your dentures onsite. This way no downtime is needed to send any of the work away. The prosthetist himself will have coordinated all necessary appointments needed for your custom-made dentures.
You can also fast-track any appliance in case of urgency, if it has been lost, broken or you have an important function to attend. The entire dental team works together in coordinating each patient’s appliances and dentures, and can minimise the need to travel to the practice multiple times.
For those patients who require hospitalisation for complex dental treatment, extractions or implant placement we have the rights to treat these patients at Allamanda Private Hospital in Southport. Appointments and treatment will be coordinated with the anaesthetist, dentist and hospital for your convenience.
We offer light relaxing sedation at an additional charge for those patients who are very anxious about their pending dental treatment. We use an inhaler that the patient will administer with the help of the dentist just before their treatment. This is a simple and safe relaxant that will help you get through your dental treatment in more comfort.
Our waiting room and surgeries have large-screen televisions for your enjoyment while waiting for your appointment or while having your treatment done. A wide selection of educational and relaxing movie DVDs or music is available for you to choose from to enjoy during your visit. If you prefer to bring your own music or movie we are happy to play that for you as well.
