Our Services

Orthodontics

Inman Aligner is a safe, quick and predictable method of straightening front teeth. With just one appliance, crooked and protruded front teeth can be gently guided to an ideal position in a matter of weeks. The average time of treatment for most individuals is 6-18 weeks depending on the complexity of the case. As it is a removable appliance, you can take it out to fit with your lifestyle.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Impacted wisdom teeth simply means that either there is insufficient space for them to emerge or they emerge in the wrong position. It is a very common problem and generally more likely to cause problems. Removal of wisdom tooth is required in following instances:
• Infection
• Cyst
• Damage to adjacent teeth
• Crowding

Contact Praxis Dental Pacific Pines today if you are in need of Wisdom Teeth extraction on the Gold Coast.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease or periodontal disease is an inflammatory condition of gums and supporting structures, which, if severe, or left untreated can lead to loss of tissues that hold your teeth and ultimately tooth loss. This is caused by a sticky film of bacteria called ‘plaque’ or ‘biofilm’ that forms constantly on your teeth. This plaque can be removed by brushing your teeth twice a day and regular dental scale and clean. If plaque is not removed, it hardens into calculus or ‘tartar’ along and under the gums. It pulls the gum away from your teeth and forms pockets that make removal of plaque difficult for you and help from a dentist is required to treat periodontal disease.

The good news is that gum disease can be treated successfully! In the first couple of visits we scale and clean the tooth and root surfaces of teeth to remove plaque and tartar deposits. This helps the gum to heal and causes reduction of pockets. In the subsequent visit, we reassess the pocket depth and we might advise only maintenance rather than active treatment.

General Dentistry

Regular dental check-ups are quite important because it helps prevent problems developing in the first place.

At Praxis Dental, we recommend a check-up every 6 months to help spot dental health problems early on when the treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. Regular check-ups are also important as some medical conditions have symptoms that appear in the mouth. We take digital x-rays and intra-oral photographs using the latest technology. This render the images instantaneously on the screen which allows us to show and explain any problems identified. Our modern digital x-rays are also up to 90% safer than the traditional x-rays.

Our experienced dentists take just as much pride in simple treatments as they do in their most complex cases.

Contact Praxis Dental Pacific Pines today to schedule a check-up with one of our experienced dentists.

Children’s Dentistry

When it comes to children, our philosophy at Praxis Dental is well put in a proverb – “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” We want to help you and your child look after those precious pearly whites at all stages of their development, right up to their adulthood. Our gentle and caring team of dentists and nurses will explain the importance of oral hygiene and prevention in the most child friendly atmosphere. We strongly focus on the following aspects of dental health for children:

Regular check-up

It is recommended that your child’s first oral health visit take place at 12 months of age, or soon after the eruption of the first baby teeth. It is extremely important to get your child in the habit of seeing the dentist from an early age to avoid developing a sense of fear.

Our dentists will evaluate your child’s teeth and oral health to diagnose any problems that might exist. We try and make the appointment as much fun as possible because stress-free dental visits are imperative in laying the foundation for a lifetime of sound oral and dental health.

Orthodontics & Habits

During a check-up, we also evaluate child’s developing jaws and teeth as certain signs could suggest need for orthodontic treatment.

Certain habits like persistent thumb sucking, habitual mouth breathing may create issues with proper growth of mouth and alignment of teeth. Ideally an orthodontic evaluation should occur at eight years of age.

Let us show you why parents are choosing Praxis, a Gold Coast dental clinic, for their kids’ dental needs.

Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made facings or shells made from porcelain that cover the front surface of the teeth just like artificial fingernails.

Crown & Bridgework

Dental crowns are made of porcelain or metal and are used to save a tooth and strengthen it. It is placed on the tooth like a cap and is helpful in restoring function and aesthetics. Few instances where crowns are used:

  • Tooth decay
  • Large fillings
  • Trauma such as a fall
  • After root canal treatment
  • Age related wear and tear

Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth and typically consists of an artificial crown anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. A bridge is also made of porcelain and gives a very natural option for missing teeth. Alternatively, you may discuss with our dentists the option of dental implants.

Call Praxis Dental Pacific Pines to organise a consultation if you are concerned about missing or damaged tooth.

Root canals

The centre of the tooth contains a sensitive tissue called ‘pulp’ which sits in the centre of the tooth called the root canal. The pulp is made of nerves and blood vessels and provides nutrients and feeling to the tooth. Sometimes the pulp may get infected or damaged beyond repair due to trauma, tooth decay, chip, crack or deep fillings. The tooth then requires a root canal treatment which involves removing damaged or infected pulp, thoroughly cleaning the canals and filling it.

Root canal treatment is usually carried out in two or more visits. We will recommend a crown be fitted over the tooth if there is significant loss of tooth structure.

Tooth Coloured Restorations

The best dental filling is no filling! Unfortunately, tooth decay is a very common dental problem. Tooth decay is initiated by plaque, a sticky bacteria film, that constantly forms on the teeth. The bacteria in plaque produce acid and decay begins with the destruction of the hard, outer layer of the tooth called enamel. This is when cavities form. If left untreated, the decay reaches deeper layers of the tooth and ultimately affects the nerves of the tooth which is when one experiences pain.

Dental decay is treated by removal of decay and replacing missing tooth structure by restoration or ‘filling’ to help stop the spread and restore strength of your original tooth. We use tooth coloured material called composite resin that is strong, safe and provides a natural look.

If you would like to enquire about white fillings Gold Coast, please contact us at Praxis Dental today. We are located in Pacific Pines on the Gold Coast, and are very close to suburbs such as Oxenford, Helensvale, Gaven and Upper Coomera.

Preventive Dentistry

Regular Dental Checkups are the foundation of good dental wellbeing.

A healthy mouth is not a single day’s job. Hence, at Praxis Dental we strongly advocate 6 monthly check-ups, scale and clean and maintaining a healthy oral hygiene regime between visits.

With every scale and clean appointment, we offer diet counselling and oral hygiene instructions that best suit your needs. If required, we also use special air polishers that use high-pressure air, water and a specially formulated powder that removes disease causing bio-film present above and below the gums.
