What do You Need to Know About Anaesthesia?

March 22, 2019

There can be times when a dentist administers anaesthesia in order to abate the pain associated with a specific oral procedure such as removing a few teeth or performing a root canal. What are some key takeaway points to keep in mind?

–  In the majority of cases, anaesthesia will be administered locally.

–  The associated injection will cause little discomfort.

–  The effects of anaesthesia can last for a few hours after the actual treatment has been completed.

“Anaesthesia is administered prior to a procedure to help dull pain or sedate a nervous or anxious patient.”

It is always wise to know what to expect if you have an upcoming appointment with a dentist. What is involved and what procedures might be performed in order to evaluate your oral health?

–  The dentist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any tartar and plaque.

–  Your mouth and gums will also be examined; helping to identify any potential issues.

–  X-rays may be employed to diagnose problems or if you have not seen a dentist in more than a year.

Did You Know These Foods are Really Bad for Your Teeth?

March 20, 2019

Some foods can dramatically increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease developing:

– Citrus fruit can erode the protective enamel, making teeth more susceptible to decay.

– Sticky dried fruit and sweets leave sugar on the teeth, encouraging oral bacteria to form plaque on the surface; if untreated, plaque hardens into tartar which can cause gum disease

– Your dentist will also suggest you avoid starchy foods such as bread and crisps as your saliva breaks the starch down into sugar.

“Many foods and beverages can cause plaque, which does serious damage your teeth.”

Why Do I Need a Dental X-Ray?

March 19, 2019

Dental x-rays are used to assess your oral health, helping to identify cavities, tooth decay and impacted teeth. This is a common and important part of your overall oral health routine.

Key takeaways:

–  A dentist will usually x-ray new patients for their records and on average once a year thereafter.

–  With the exception of pregnant women, X-rays use a low enough dose of radiation to be considered safe for both adults and children. 

– A lead vest is used to cover the chest and lap, preventing the vital organs being exposed to unnecessary radiation.

“Children may need to have dental X-rays more often than adults because their dentists might need to monitor the growth of their adult teeth. This is important because it can help the dentist determine if baby teeth need to be pulled to prevent complications, such as adult teeth growing in behind baby teeth.”
