What is the best way to prevent gum disease?
Gum disease can be caused by a number of factors including poor oral hygiene, loss of teeth as well as some health related factors such as stress, diabetes and pregnancy. The best way to prevent gum disease is with a comprehensive oral regime of brushing, flossing and rinsing. This will keep your mouth healthy between visits to our practice where professional cleaning and close check-ups are completed to prevent gum disease from occurring.
What can I do if my teeth are cracked?
When teeth crack they can become increasingly sensitive to both hot and cold food and drink. The crack creates an area of weakness which is then open to further problems including tooth decay or further breakage.
At the Armadale Dental Centre we can treat the cracked tooth with a crown where the underlying tooth is bonded effectively to an incredibly strong and durable biocompatible material. This treats the problem, reinstates the stability of the tooth and eliminates the sensitivity felt in the tooth.
I have a number of black fillings and want them removed. What options do I have?
At the Armadale Dental Centre, we have been using composite tooth coloured fillings for over ten years. While those patients who receive filling treatment at our practice have felt the benefits of this, others who may have undergone treatment elsewhere or a long time ago, can choose to have their old, black fillings removed and replaced by more subtle, natural-looking and durable tooth coloured counterparts.
What are the consequences of not cleaning my teeth regularly?
Neglect of tooth cleaning, both at home and from the dentist will result in the development of periodontal disease. The build-up of plaque, with the bacteria found in the hardened deposit, known as tartar, creates a breeding ground for irritated gums leading to the breakdown of the mouth’s overall supporting structure. This can lead to tooth loss as well as a range of unpleasant side effects including bad breath and discolouring to the teeth. Periodontal disease is treatable.
A check-up at the Armadale Dental Centre will identify if you have periodontal disease or are in danger of developing it over time.
