Laser dentistry and how regular check-ups are better for your general health
Honeysuckle Dental have helped thousands of patients receive the dental care they need. From general dentistry through to restorative and cosmetic dentistry, our friendly team can help you.
Receiving the treatment you need
One of the biggest problems in treating oral health in Australia at the moment is patient education. Many people do not know how detrimental poor oral health can be to their overall health. Some patients even shrug off bleeding gums when they brush their teeth. Visiting the dentist on a regular basis is beneficial to your long-term health. Unlike your GP we actually want to see you even if you don’t have a major concern.
Preventing problems is better for your health
By visiting Honeysuckle regularly we can assess your oral health and help you prevent serious issues from occurring. This can mean the difference between a filling and root canal therapy. This is better for the long-term health of the tooth; especially because after root canal therapy the tooth is technically dead.
The benefit of root canal therapy over-extraction is that the treated tooth, while dead, is still useful for chewing and biting as well as providing stimulation for your jaw.
Laser dentistry for needle-free and drill-free treatment
With dental lasers, needles and dental drills are often unnecessary. This can mean a more comfortable treatment for our patients and in some cases reduced healing time. At Honeysuckle dental our dental lasers can be used for:
- Laser gum treatment
- Root canal therapy
- Teeth whitening
- Soft tissue surgery
- Hard tissue surgery
At Honeysuckle Dental we offer three teeth whitening treatments:
- Smartbleach Laser whitening
- Phillips Zoom whitening
- Opalescence take-home whitening

Laser dentistry and your oral health
Remember: regular dental check-ups can prevent problems such as gum disease, tooth loss and malocclusion. One visit every six months can be all the difference between a simple check-up and clean and more serious treatment like root canal therapy.
