Have the smile you’ve always wanted...
By Search Marketing Specialists 19 Dec, 2017

I can guarantee that everybody reading this blog will have had this moment. The awful feeling you get when you whack your elbow on a table, even if you knock it in the car it sends a shocking pain right up your arm and if anybody is around they will always say, “Ha Ha whacked your funny bone” well I am positive we will all agree there is nothing funny about it!

So how did it get that name? Well the "funny bone" got its nickname because of that funny feeling you get after you hit it. But your funny bone isn't actually a bone at all. Running down the inside part of your elbow is a nerve called the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve lets your brain know about feelings in your fourth and fifth fingers.

What about that pain you might get at the back of your mouth when you’re a little older and those around you once again will speaks words of knowledge when they proclaim, “Its most likely your  wisdom teeth   coming through” yet again the experts might be right but why are those last to erupt molars given the name wisdom teeth?


It is generally thought among linguists that they are called  wisdom teeth because they appear so late, at an age when a person matures into adulthood and is “wiser” than when other teeth have erupted. Lately, science has added some credence to the idea that the third molar does indeed erupt when a person is “wiser”.

Wiser or not one thing we do know is they can cause a little discomfort and it’s a good idea to have them seen to.

For   wisdom teeth attention on the Gold Coast , Starbright Dental is the wisest of all. For wisdom tooth extraction, where required, is best performed sooner rather than later. Using x-rays, here at Starbright Dental, we determine which wisdom tooth needs to be removed.

And sorry about the Funny Bone, as I can’t help with that.

Of course, anyone that has a nose got a nose bridge needless to say. Meanwhile, we can have the second one if needed. Why if needed? Because it is only placed if a tooth is lost through an accident or is too badly decayed to save with a crown, a bridge may be the treatment of choice.

If I am to asked you, how many teeth do you think are lost each year during sporting activity what would be your guess? A lot would be the most common answer, but we can actually put a number to it. In the USA it’s around 5 million teeth (usually the front ones) are knocked out or damaged each year playing sport. If we look at the fact that the US has 5 times the population of Australia we could safely say the number could be close to a Million a year down under, that’s a lot of teeth.

Let’s go back in time, it’s around 1500 years ago you are living in and you have taken a look in the polished metal mirror and thought   those pearly whites are no longer so white   , a few gaps here and there and maybe it’s about time for an “Image change”. So, you make an appointment at the Local Mayan Dental Clinic and ask about some of those new teeth replacements you have heard about. The   dentist    smiles and next thing you know he has whipped you back in the chair, hit you over the head with a mallet and then put pieces of bone to repair a broken tooth, seashells, and even carved rocks into any     vacant tooth socket   .  Sound like fun?

Our own teeth can last a lifetime. And by taking care of them, that’s not impossible. The healthier our teeth are, the happier and healthier our "over-all self" will look. That is why it is very important to take care of our dental health by flossing and brushing every day. But do you think will that be enough? We need expert dentists  to check up on our dental health regularly because our naked eye cannot see every flaw our teeth might have, you must bend your head in many directions to see potential problems inside our mouths. Your front teeth may be looking bright and white as a pearl on the outside, but when you to look closer, it may not be healthy as it seems.

Washing your car every Sunday makes it look all shiny and lovely however it doesn’t help the car run any better, you still must do regular maintenance like changing the oil and the like just to make sure you have years of trouble free and more importantly cost-effective motoring. In the same manner, brushing your teeth daily gives you a nice shiny smile and helps to keep surface issues away, but sooner or later little pieces of food can wear away and cause cavities which can lead to other dental issues. Your teeth, also need regular checking and maintaining , usually done by the family friendly dentists of Southport , to make sure that great smile remains and costly procedures are avoided .

With all the teeth whitening products sitting on the shelf at the local pharmacy and all the ads you get harassed with, on Social Media for the same, an often-asked question will be, "What’s wrong with DIY Teeth Whitening ?" or "Why do I need a dentist ?"

Fear? It’s a terrible thing, it can basically stop you in your tracks and make you totally ineffective in doing what has to be done, including looking after those super important teeth. When the time comes for a dental checkup, a clean or maybe even some cosmetic work the nerves, can start to set in way before you are even sitting in the dentist chair.

So why are we afraid of the dentists? Well, maybe we are basing this fear a lot from “Back in the Day Dentistry”, you know the way it was seen in old movies. The dentist had a pair of giant forceps, you watched scenes where they would pull and pull at the poor patient's teeth, and sometimes they even jumped on their chest to get more leverage! Painkillers usually involved a swig of Whiskey. Drills were big and loud, so no wonder going to the dentist was viewed more as a horror movie.

Thankfully, that’s all changed! Here at Starbright Dental in Southport, we are specialising in Pain Free Dentistry , we want to make your visit with us as relaxing and enjoyable as we can, we strive to be the best dentists offering pain-free services on the Gold Coast.
