Dental advice for infants and bottle feeding!

Why are baby teeth so important?   Although baby teeth will eventually exfoliate they serve several purposes in your child’s mouth. Baby teeth help with your child’s ability to eat, speak and of course, smile! One other very important purpose for baby teeth is that they serve as placeholders for adult teeth later on in life. If baby teeth are not well cared for, dental infections can arise; causing discomfort, pain, illness and [...]

Best toothpaste for children!

Why use toothpaste?   There are many reasons to use toothpaste. Toothpaste physically helps remove thick harmful biofilm on teeth surfaces which may cause tooth decay or gum disease. Most toothpastes also contain fluoride, which makes teeth more resistant to dental caries and aid remineralisation of early carious lesions. Additionally, some toothpastes have special ingredients to address staining and/or bad breath!       Heres a great article from Kay, our Oral Health [...]

What is tooth sensitivity?

  Is the taste of ice cream or a sip of a hot drink sometimes a painful experience for your child? Does tooth brushing or flossing make them wince occasionally? If so, your child may have sensitive teeth. Tooth sensitivity occurs when the layer of a tooth underneath the enamel (called the dentin) or the layer covering the root (called cementum) is exposed along the gum line due to receding gums. The exposed [...]

Healthy Snacks for Healthy Teeth

Tooth decay (dental caries) is a diet-related disease. Sugars in the food and drinks you consume are broken down by germs (bacteria) in the plaque that produce acids. The acid attacks the outer layer of the tooth (enamel) causing it to soften resulting in tooth decay. These attacks can last for up to 20 minutes after sugary food and drinks are consumed until your saliva can start to remineralise the enamel and allow [...]

Lifestyle Choices and your Oral Health!

Oral health is essential to general health and well-being at every stage of life. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines oral health as “a state of being free from chronic mouth and facial pain, oral and throat cancer, oral infection and sores, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, tooth loss, and other diseases and disorders that limit an individual’s capacity in biting, chewing, smiling, speaking, and psychosocial wellbeing.” All lifestyle choices have a significant [...]
