Dental Fissure Sealants

DENTAL FISSURE SELANTS

BENEFITS OF FISSURE SEALANTS

benefits of Fissure SealantsFissure Sealants

What is a Fissure sealant?

Fissure sealants are safe and painless way of protecting adult and kid’s teeth from tooth decay. It is a plastic coating which covers the chewing surfaces of the back adult teeth. The sealant forms a hard shield that keeps food and bacteria from getting into the tiny grooves in the teeth. The dentist will take photos of teeth and show you the deep groves in your teeth.

Sealants used in conjunction with a comprehensive dental care routine that includes proper brushing, flossing, fluoride treatments and a healthy diet, helps maintain dental health. While brushing and flossing are critical components of any dental health regimen, sealants provide additional protection for the grooves and pits of the teeth.

Our dentists in Indooroopilly recommend this preventative procedure for both adults and kids to keep your smile cavity free for life.

 Your dentist will examine your teeth and let you know if you need fissure sealants or not.

Braces and Good oral hygiene

BRACES AND GOOD ORAL HYGIENE ROUTINE

How to keep kids motivated to follow good oral hygiene during their orthodontic treatment?

KEEPING TEETH AND GUMS HEALTHY DURING ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

Braces and good oral hygiene routine

Kids and teens wear braces to straighten their teeth or to improve the occlusion. Most of the kids wear braces for 18-24 months. This time can vary. Keeping your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment gets a little bit tricky. Your dentist or orthodontist will show you how to practice good oral hygiene to keep your teeth and gums healthy. At Heritage Dental Group Indooroopilly, our dentists see kids and teens for their regular cleans and dental check-ups during orthodontic treatment.

Our dentists always reinforce the importance of good brushing, cleaning in-between teeth, using tooth mousse and floss to clean teeth. Poor oral hygiene can result in tooth decay and white spot lesions.

Gentle Dentist Brisbane

Here are few tips from Dr Singh to keep teeth and gums healthy during orthodontic treatment:

Brushing your teeth properly with braces – You child should brush his/her teeth in the morning, after meals and dinner. Establishing a good routine from the start is vital for keeping teeth and gums healthy and cavity free. Use a soft bristle manual or electric toothbrush, holding toothbrush at 45 angle, start cleaning gum line softly. Then start brushing every bracket top to bottom, wiggle your brush back and forth to get between the wires. Brush each tooth surface, don’t forget the molars at the back, pay individual attention to each tooth in your mouth and spend at least 2-3 minutes brushing your teeth.

Bruxism or Teeth grinding

ARE YOU GRINDING YOUR TEETH?

dentist indooroopilly

 

Bruxism is the grinding and clenching of teeth. Grinding or clenching your teeth can lead to worn out teeth, damage to teeth and painful jaw joints. Teeth grinding can occur during the day or at night-time while sleeping. Many people may not even be aware that they are grinding their teeth at night as while grinding the teeth during sleep, you have no conscious control. If you wake up with a sore jaw, sensitive teeth or headache, you may be grinding your teeth at night. See your dentist and medical professional to rule out any causes. Sometimes, mild bruxism does not require any treatment but if you are experiencing it more frequently, please seek help. If you or your child is grinding their teeth at night or day time, remember to discuss this with your dentist at the next dental appointment.

Why I should get teeth whitening done at my dentist?

COSMETIC DENTIST INDOOROOPILLY

BRISBANE GENTLE DENTIST

 WHY YOU SHOULD GET TEETH WHITENING DONE AT THE  DENTIST?

Teeth whitening at the dentistWhy I should get teeth whitening done at my dentist when it is offered by cosmetic clinics and mobile teeth whitening services at cheaper prices? The question we often get asked. Sometimes people also ask about over the counter tooth whitening gels and toothpastes with activated charcoal, which are cheaper and easily accessible.

Teeth whitening is a procedure used by dental professionals to whiten stained discoloured teeth. This process is safe and effective if done under dentist supervision. Teeth usually get 6-8 shades lighter with in-chair teeth whitening, boosting confidence in those who are struggling with yellow stained teeth.

Your dental professional will examine all your teeth and gums to check if you are suitable for professional in-chair or take home tooth whitening trays.

If you have restorations, your dentist will discuss with you about stained fillings and changing colour of fillings after teeth whitening.
