Assessment & Consultation:
Maven Dental Maryborough, formerly Toothworkx, wants you to understand your Treatment Plan. An appointment for a consultation with your clinician to discuss, or answer any questions, should be arranged if you are not sure about any aspect of your treatment.
An initial consultation can be made to begin the process of Treatment Planning. At this appointment X-rays (radiographs), vitality tests or other diagnostic aids may be required & would be an extra charge. For more information please download our brochure or contact our office.
Tooth Coloured Fillings & Dental Bonding:
Unlike amalgam (the old style metal fillings), tooth coloured fillings are made from a plastic material which matches your natural tooth shade and have less chance of tooth fracture. Conventional amalgam fillings don’t bond to the tooth structure but are retained by special preparation of the tooth which removes and weakens more of the tooth structure. Tooth coloured fillings bond to the tooth directly requiring removal of far less important tooth structure. This means more natural tooth structure remains, ensuring the tooth is not as weak and you don’t have all those grey visible fillings.
Full upper & lower dentures and all types of partial dentures can be supplies & fitted at Maven Dental Maryborough. Dentures are personalised to suit your wants and needs. This results in aesthetically pleasing and functional dentures. Partial dentures can be made from acrylic only (with wire clasps) or a cast metal framework with acrylic around the denture teeth, these have integrated, precisely fitting cast clasps. Thermoplastic partials are the most natural looking with no metal or wire clasps to show, having gum coloured clasps that are virtually invisible outside the mouth. Several appointments are needed to make dentures, from impressions to try in and then completion.
Every year, thousands of people are treated for dental injuries, which could have been prevented, or the severity minimised, by wearing a protective mouthguard. There are many sports that carry the risk of contact to the face such as: football, hockey, boxing, soccer, basketball, cricket (wicket keeping or batting without a helmet) and BMX racing to name a few. A heavy collision can result in chipped or broken teeth, root fractures, internal damage to a tooth, tooth loss, injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth and, in severe cases, concussion or a broken jaw. For these reasons, a custom made, protective mouthguard should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport that could involve contact to the face.
