We understand patients needs differ from one individual to another. Some of the most common concerns and problems are:
One of the most common signs of gum disease is bleeding gums. Often patients feel that bleeding gums occur due to brushing too hard. However, this is actually the bacteria in your mouth changing the sugars into acids, leading to inflammation. The long term effects of gum disease can be tooth loss if not detected and treated earlier. One of the biggest culprits for causing gum disease is smoking.
To keep your gums healthy
- Brush twice daily
- Floss or use interdental aids to clean in between your teeth
- Visit the dentist regularly
- Avoid smoking
- Use a fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash
- Limit sugar based snacks and drinks
Stained and discoloured teeth:
Teeth naturally acquire staining from the foods we consume. These can be things such as coffee, red wine and curry’s. Smoking is also a factor that causes staining. These can be easily treated by visiting the hygienist to have staining removed and professional teeth whitening to help brighten the colour of your teeth without causing damage to the tooth structure.
Tooth decay is as common as gum disease. Due to the bacteria breaking down sugars and releasing acids, this process can lead to holes forming in the teeth. Generally, as sign of decay can be sensitive teeth or sharp twinge like pain lasting a few minutes. If left untreated or un-detected, it can lead to further problems like nerve death, causing a need for root canal therapy or extraction.
Known as the best options for tooth replacement, dental implant provide a fixed option for missing teeth. A titanium screw is placed into the jawbone allowing to restore the health, function and confidence in your smile.
