Lately we have been seeing more and more patients come in complaining of bleeding gums. Often people have been putting up with it for awhile, and it is only when other symptoms arise in combination with the bleeding do they get concerned enough to come in!
Heading into the Christmas and New Year season the last thing many of us will think about is our teeth! With spring and summer in full swing it is often so hot that all you want to do is enjoy an ice cream, an ice block or a cold can of soft drink by the pool!
Does the thought of biting into an ice cream make you cringe? If so, you’re not alone! Sensitive teeth are one of the most common dental complaints. Sometimes people suffer for so long that they get used to having teeth that always seem to be ‘on edge’!
Congratulations, you're pregnant! Your oral health is probably one of the last things you will be thinking about over the next 12 months. However, your oral health is very important to your health and to the health of your child!
Teeth are one of the strongest parts of the human body. We use them to bite, chew, cut and tear our way through food every day. Teeth can withstand a huge amount of force over the course of our lives, but it doesn’t mean that they are invincible!
