Mouthguard reminder

Sport seasons are kicking off so here is your friendly reminder to protect your kid’s teeth (and your own) with a custom made mouthguard if they play a contact sport.


Call Monica or Bronwyn on 3263 2677 to find out more, including how you can get a mouthguard in their team colours with their name and phone number on the mouthguard.

Here’s our useful guide of what a parent should do in the case of a chipped, knocked out or moved tooth.

Wishing you and your family a safe and successful sports season!

Kids crooked teeth

At Today’s Dentistry, we get many parents who are worried that their kids adult teeth are coming through crooked, overcrowded, sticking out or gappy.

In this article we look at some of the reasons for kids crooked teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium screw that integrates with your jaw to replace the lost tooth root. A porcelain crowned tooth is then attached to the top of the implant to complete your smile.

The dental implant procedure has been around for over 30 years and gives you the closest result to having your own natural teeth back.

What’s the Buzz?

Sadly, Shannon finished up at Today’s Dentistry this month. With her husband Tony’s (Dr Tony Cakar who used to work here too) work now at the Gold Coast and baby #2 due in April, Shannon and Tony (pictured below with the team at last years MS walk) are relocating the family and are very excited about the sea change. We have all formed firm friendships over the years of working together so Shannon and Tony will be greatly missed by the team and patients at Today’s Dentistry- but of course we wish them every happiness with their growing family and new home.
