General Dentistry

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, seven in 10 children from five to 14 years old would brush their teeth at least twice every day. It is a good number, but it can definitely be improved. With the right information, children, through their parents, can become more aware of the importance of proper oral hygiene.

Brushing and flossing are both crucial in maintaining healthy teeth and mouth. But there are other things that people should know that go hand in hand with daily brushing, including eating less sugar. Even changing your toothbrush every four to six months should be a part of the routine. Whether you use manual or electric, aim to change your teeth cleaning tool on the recommended period for the best results.

The most important of all is to visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleaning. Common dental diseases are often caused by improper brushing and lousy hygiene habits. The dentist is a dental professional who can assess your oral health and provide you with different services to avoid tooth decay, gum disease, and more. Dentists are also trained in detecting pathologies of the jaws and mouth, which means they can detect oral cancer early.

Common Problems with Dentures and Their Solutions

Dentures or false teeth are among your options for tooth loss. Unlike the ones your grandmother used to wear, modern dentures are far superior. They are not only natural-looking, but they are comfortable, as well. However, no matter how comfortable they are, it still takes a little bit of time to get used to wearing them. And that’s just one of the issues you will encounter.

Having cavities means that your teeth’s hard surfaces have become permanently damaged. Your teeth will have microscopic holes or openings that invite bacteria in shortly after. Cavities, caries, or tooth decay can be a result of several things, including bacteria build-up due to poor oral hygiene, frequent snacking, and eating too much sugar.

Can Root Canals Decay?

Root canals are a common dental procedure, with a success rate of over 95%, according to the American Association of Endodontists. With proper after-care treatment, a root canal can last a lifetime. In this dental procedure, the soft centre of the tooth is removed. This is called the pulp. It is made up of connective tissue, blood vessels, and nerves, which are all crucial in helping a healthy tooth grow.

Dental Implants: What They Are + Health Insurance Facts

If you have missing teeth, one of your options is to have implants. Dental implants are much like dentures, but the main difference is that they are a fixed solution, whereas dentures are removable. Implants are more preferred because they look like your natural teeth – even feel like them. They are longer-lasting, too and allow you to talk and chew almost as if you never lost a tooth.
