13 Aug Reviews of Proposed Treatments
Can you think of tone of those tasks you put in the back of your mind?
One of those things can sometimes be to go back to the dentist when you have discussed replacing an old filling.
Then, all of a sudden you bite down on harmless multigrain bread and you hear a crunching sound.
your tooth gives a sharp stabbing feeling and your heart sinks.
Dr Paul McKay says “just yesterday I saw a lovely patient who I have been looking after for over 15 years now. She had come in with a broken tooth which we planned for a crown two years ago. Today, though, the tooth had a crack deep into the root canal, so rather than simply a corwn treatment, we now needed to remove the nerve and perform a full Root Canal Treatment and then following the crown.”
“As complex as a new filling or crown is, the alternative of waiting too long is often a lot more complicated.”
“As Dentists we want to make sure we communicate with our patients so that they understand the treatments which have been recommended and the risks of not having the treatments before its too late” says Dr Paul McKay.
At Brisbane Smiles we want to help prevent these moments. Our Dentists assess teeth with structural weaknesses that these problems are likely to happen.
Our Dentists are always happy to review your treatment plans and provide more advice to help you u derstand the risks that oppose your teeth.
Currently, any patient with outstanding treatment at Brisbane Smiles is welcomed to return for a No out of pocket cost review and assessment to get you back on the right track to understanding the risks of not having dental treatments in a timely manner.
