Dentists - Australian Business Directory | LocalBook

Australian Dentists DirectoryDentists are involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of teeth, mouth, oral and sinus problems. Dentists might also be called cosmetic surgeons, dental surgeons, dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, dental therapists, endodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, oral surgeons, orthodontists, pediatric dentists and prosthodontists. Anyone with the following problems - cavities, crooked teeth, sleeping disorders, tonsils, tooth aches and wisdom teeth - might want to contact an Australian dentist.

In July 1925, the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) was founded. Dentistry has continued to advance in the 20th century with the following inventions: porcelain crowns in 1903, Novocain (a local anesthetic) in 1905, nylon toothbrushes in 1938 and electric toothbrushes in 1960. You can contact a dentist for the following services: braces, bridges, cleaning, crowns, dentures, extractions, flossing, implants, Invisalign, rinsing, root canals, veneers and whitening. Did you know that you can purchase invisible braces nowadays? They are called Invisalign and these are formed exactly to your teeth allowing you to make gradual adjustments over time. This Invisalign might be ideal for adults with crooked teeth. You might also see dental services listed as oral health services. Cosmetic smile makeovers are becoming popular.

Tools of dentistry include the dental chair, dental drill, digital radiography, spit cup, X-rays and moveable lights. Your chair will usually be fully reclined as the dentist works over you. You will probably be given local anesthetic for most of the procedures. Some dentists also offer CPAP machines for those with problems snoring or sleeping. After surgery, the dentist can give you a prescription for antibiotics or pain killers. Most dentists are very busy, so you will need to set up a dental appointment, about a month in advance. Dentists are great because when you leave, you not only have fresh, sparkling teeth, but you will usually be given special floss and toothbrushes for regular oral care.

Dentists will study anesthesia, biology, implants, oral and maxillofacial surgery, Periodontology (periodontics). Periodontology is the study of diseases in the gums. These professionals might earn a Masters of Dental Science, Dental Surgery, Medicine or Implants. Dental associations include the Australasian Osseointegration Society, Australian Society of Endodontology, Australian Dental Association, Australasian College of Nutrition & Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), Dental Board of South Australia and Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency.

There might be same day emergency dental care available, if your tooth pain is really bad. LocalBook has some of the best dentists in Australia. Turn to your Australian Local Business Directory when you need professional help.
