How Seniors Can Improve Their Oral Health

How Seniors Can Improve Their Oral Health dentist kallangurGetting older doesn’t mean losing all your teeth; with healthy habits, adults should be able to keep most, if not all, of their teeth for life.

While many people still believe that everyone will need dentures someday, these days, more 75% of adults over age 65 still have some or all of their teeth remaining. On the other hand, nearly 20% of seniors in Australia have no teeth at all.

Regardless of how many teeth a senior does have, if they have dentures, or whatever their current state of dental health is, they should work hard to improve their dental health. This is particularly important because dental health directly supports overall health.

Toothpaste And Your Teeth!

There are many different toothpastes on the market, and each of them boasts different features that are supposed to be perfect for your teeth. And unless we have an issue such as tooth sensitivity or gum disease, most of us don’t think too much about what toothpaste we use.

But choosing the proper toothpaste is a critical element of dental health. Below is your Prevent Dental toothpaste guide to help you choose the right products for you and your family.

Amazing Benefits Of A Smile Makeover

Amazing Benefits Of A Smile Makeover kallangur dentistIf you have always been dissatisfied and self-conscious about your smile, now is the time to make a change by asking Prevent Dental about the possibility of a smile makeover.

While some people are blessed with perfect smiles, many people have multiple issues with their mouth, teeth, and gums. This means that specific treatments dealing with only one area of dental treatment do not necessarily upgrade their smiles to the degree they want.

This is where a smile makeover can make all the difference! Your Prevent Dental dentist can consult you on what procedures you want and need, and then can work to make your dreams a reality.

Tooth Bonding – Easy And Economical

Tooth-Bonding-Easy-And-Economical-kallangur-dentist Having a bright and beautiful smile can enhance your appearance and make you appear younger and healthier. But not everyone has a perfect smile. Some of us may have a chipped or broken tooth or gaps between too-small teeth. Teeth can become be stained or dingy.

The good news is that Prevent Dental Suite has several treatments to address these kinds of issues, including tooth bonding. Tooth bonding is the application of one or several layers of composite material, a plastic with other materials included to increase strength, hardness, and durability.

Protect Your Smile This Footy Season With A Custom Mouth GuardThe football season has returned to Brisbane! In local parks, 5-a-side social leagues, and up to the Brisbane Roar FC, everyone is putting on their kit and lacing up their boots!

But there is one important element to football gear that is sometimes forgotten, and that is the mouth guard. At Prevent Dental Suite we would like to welcome the football season while also stressing the need for dental safety throughout its duration.

What About Mouth Guards?

When most of us think about mouth guards we associate them with high-contact and violent sports such as boxing, rugby, or martial arts. But dentists recommend mouth guards for many sports, including football. Each sport requires a different kind of guard and the key is to find a balance between comfort, ease of use, and the level of protection called for.

Avoiding And Repairing Gum Disease - kallangur dentist

Avoiding And Repairing Gum Disease

Avoiding And Repairing Gum Disease - kallangur dentistThere is a famous saying that “a stitch in time saves nine.” And when it comes to gum disease, that statement is more than true. Treating gum disease before it becomes serious can literally save you stitches later.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is inflammation caused by bacterial growth in the mouth around the tooth and along the gum line. Unfortunately, this preventable disease can cause loss of teeth if not treated.

Worse, at least 20% of Australians have at least moderate gum disease, according to the Australian Department of Health in a 2012 study.

The good news? If identified and treated early, gum disease is reversible, and even in advanced cases your Kallangur dentist can help!
