Missing Teeth

Missing teeth refer to teeth that are no longer present in the mouth due to different reasons such as decay, injury, or extraction. These gaps can affect the appearance of your smile and your ability to chew and speak properly. Missing teeth can also lead to the shifting of remaining teeth and jawbone loss.



A toothache is a pain or discomfort in or around a tooth. It can be caused by various factors, including tooth decay, infection, gum disease, or injury. 

Toothaches can range from mild to severe. It’s important to see a dentist promptly if you have a toothache to determine the underlying cause and receive appropriate treatment.


Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth refer to teeth that are misaligned or not in the proper position. This can occur due to genetics, early loss of primary teeth, or improper dental habits during childhood. 

Crooked teeth may lead to dental issues, such as difficulty in chewing, speech problems, and an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Treatment for crooked teeth may include braces, Invisalign, or other orthodontic procedures.


Gum Disease

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a condition where the gums are inflamed because of some bacteria in plaque. Early stages of gum disease, known as gingivitis, may cause redness, swelling, and bleeding of the gums. If left untreated, gum disease can progress to periodontitis, where the gums pull away from the teeth, forming pockets that can become infected.


Teeth Grinding

Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is a condition where a person clenches or grinds their teeth involuntarily. This can occur during the day or, more commonly, at night during sleep. 

Wearing a custom mouthguard can help protect your teeth from the effects of teeth grinding, such as worn tooth enamel, tooth sensitivity, jaw pain, headaches, and even damage to dental restorations.


Tooth Discolouration

Tooth discolouration can be caused by things like drinking coffee, smoking, or getting older. Sometimes, the inside of the tooth gets darker, too. Our dental team at Kedron Family Dental can help through professional cleaning or whitening to make teeth brighter again.

Sleep-Disordered Breathing

Sleep-disordered breathing refers to breathing abnormalities that happen during sleep. These conditions can lead to fragmented sleep, daytime drowsiness, and other health issues if left untreated. At Kedron Family Dental, we have treatments available for snoring, bruxism and sleep apnoea.


Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity involves experiencing discomfort or pain in one or more teeth when exposed to hot or cold temperatures. It occurs when the underlying dentin layer of the tooth becomes exposed due to factors such as gum recession, enamel erosion, or tooth decay. 

It’s important to consult with a dentist to determine the cause of tooth sensitivity and to receive appropriate treatment.


Cracked Teeth

Cracked teeth refer to teeth that have fractures or breaks on the outer layer of the tooth. This can happen because of teeth grinding, biting on hard objects, or trauma to the mouth. 

Treatment for cracked teeth depends on the severity of the crack and may include dental bonding, a dental crown, or in severe cases, root canal.


Erosion and Tooth Wear

Erosion and tooth wear refer to the gradual loss of tooth enamel. This is caused by acidic foods and drinks, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or abrasive tooth brushing. Erosion and tooth wear can lead to symptoms such as tooth sensitivity, discolouration, and rough or transparent tooth edges.


Bad Breath (Halitosis)

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, is a common condition that can be embarrassing and affect your confidence. It is often caused by poor oral hygiene, which allows bacteria to accumulate in the mouth and produce foul-smelling gasses. Other factors that can contribute to bad breath include dry mouth, certain foods, smoking, and underlying medical conditions.

On my recent visit I took my little boy for his first dental experience. The staff were wonderful and hygienist Alex did an amazing job of making him feel comfortable and ensuring he had an enjoyable experience. He had no complaints and even talks about when we will go back to the dentist. As my dental experience as a child was terrible, I could not recommend Alex and the team highly enough for a visit for children to make them comfortable and a positive experience.

I went for a routine check up and clean as a new customer to the practice. From checking in (Abby) to the clean (Dr Chantal and Kian), everyone was very professional and thorough. A very comprehensive assessment was made and a meticulous clean was provided by Dr Chantal. Overall great dental experience and I will be back.

I am a white knuckle dental patient (a product of school mobile dental care back in the 1960’s) I had a crown installed all in one visit today (less than 3 hours). Totally painless. All staff were wonderful and highly empathetic to my issues. The practice is highly recommended, which is why I have been a patient at Kedron for the last 15 years.

I would definitely recommend Kedron family dental. The staff are first class.
Despite my fears, they definitely were calm and collected. Which helped me be calm too. I really appreciate the work of Dr Pj and assistant Gemma.
First class!! Thank you!!

I have been going to Kedron Family Dental for a while now and such positive experiences so far at the practice. Dr Chantal and the dental assistants that work there are fantastic - professional and takes good care of your oral health. I would keep going back despite having moved to the other side of the river :))

Elwynn has been my dentist for many years, and without a doubt is one of the best! Extremely professional and knowledgeable; but where he is really ahead of the rest, is the care and explanation he provides throughout any treatment or examination. Great to have him in the Brisbane area!
