Various factors, including poor oral hygiene, mouth trauma, gum disease, tooth decay, and genetic conditions, can lead to missing teeth. Additionally, age-related wear and tear can also contribute to tooth loss. Addressing missing teeth promptly is crucial, as it can prevent potential dental problems like shifting of remaining teeth, chewing difficulties, and speech issues.
A toothache refers to the distressing sensation or discomfort experienced in or around a tooth. The pain intensity can vary from mild to severe and may persist or come and go intermittently.
It is vital to recognise that toothaches often indicate an underlying dental problem that demands timely attention from a dentist to prevent potential complications.
Gum disease, scientifically termed periodontal disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the vital tissues supporting and enveloping the teeth, encompassing the gums, ligaments, and bones. This prevalent condition encompasses a spectrum, ranging from mild gum inflammation (gingivitis) to more severe damage to the supporting tissues and bones (periodontitis).
Teeth grinding, medically referred to as bruxism, is an involuntary condition characterised by the unconscious grinding, clenching, or gnashing of teeth. While it frequently occurs during sleep, it can also manifest when awake. Unfortunately, bruxism can inflict damage to the teeth, jaw, and surrounding muscles, potentially giving rise to various dental and health issues if left unaddressed.
Teeth discolouration is a condition characterised by the loss of the natural white colour of teeth, resulting in a yellowish, brownish, or grayish appearance.
One of the primary contributors to teeth discolouration is inadequate dental hygiene, leading to the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Other factors include habits like smoking, consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine, as well as foods high in sugar and carbohydrates. Additionally, aging and certain medications can also play a role in causing teeth discolouration.

What our clients say
“Have been a client here for over 10 years and highly recommend this practice. Dr Lubinka has been my dentist for 12 years since I moved from the UK. Her professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and her communication is outstanding. The administrative, support and dental nurse staff here are equally exceptional. Customer focused, positive, flexible and polite. Have never ever considered going anywhere else. Highly recommended.”
“Thank you to all the staff for being so caring and accommodating for my husband's first visit. Dr Lubinka has set him on a path toward dental health recovery. This practice has even inspired me to visit for a checkup and that’s somewhat miraculous!”
“Excellent customer service, with friendly and experienced staff! This is so helpful when you have a child who has always been anxious going to the dentist. Dr Master is so professional and composed that I don't even need to go in with my child when she has an appointment. He makes sure that you are completely satisfied with the service you receive and that's at no additional cost to you!”
“What can you say? Who loves going to the dentist? My experience has been awesome. No pain, no fuss, friendly and professional. Do I want to go again? No. I want to take better care of my teeth. Yet, if I have to go, I definitely will be back here.”
“I cannot praise Mindarie Quinn’s dental staff highly enough. My son had an accident at school resulting in a chipped tooth, the desk staff were amazing, shifting around appointments to fit him in for emergency treatment. Dr Aron was brilliant. He was calm & gentle with a traumatised boy. Within the hour we were back home with a fixed up-front tooth. This is my usual dentist, and my experiences are always great, but the care we received today in an emergency was so professional and reassuring, I felt the need to leave a review of our experience. Thank you for the incredible treatment we received with you today.”
“Staff are always super friendly. Really helpful when it comes to dental emergencies. My teeth are forever grateful.”
“Myself and my children have been seeing Lubinka for years. She is kind, patient, friendly and explains everything very well. My daughter had to have 4 teeth extracted and the procedure went very well because of her trust in Lubinka. The other staff are also lovely. We highly recommend this practice.”
