Making your child’s dental visit comfortable!

Making your Child’s Dental visit comfortable:)

Making your Child's dental Visit comfortable

Kids sometimes feel nervous when it comes to visiting a dentist. At Heritage Dental Group, our team strives to make your child’s dental visit as fun and educating as possible.

The most important thing with kids oral health and dental visits is to start early. Be it is seeing a Dentist or getting into the routine of proper brushing and flossing techniques. As soon as your baby’s first teeth erupt, schedule an appointment with your dentist. This is the perfect time for you and your child to get to know your dentist and start on early brushing and oral hygiene habits. Make sure you watch your kids brush and floss and talk to them about good oral hygiene. Once they start reading, get them some interesting books about dentists and the benefits of proper brushing and flossing.

Healthy teeth tips!

5 TIPS FOR HEALTHY TEETH AND GUMS

5 tips for maintaining healthy teeth

HEALTHY TEETH

  1. Brush twice a dayBrushing at least twice a day reduces your chances of getting decay and bad breath. Brushing removes all the excess food and plaque residue on the teeth, gums & tongue and keeps you teeth healthy and clean. Always use soft bristle brush to clean your teeth and make sure you are not rubbing them too hard. Best time to brush teeth is after meals.
  2. Floss – Flossing removes food and plaque build up in between your teeth. If you are not flossing, you are missing 35% of teeth area. Flossing saves you from getting cavities in between your teeth and bad breath. Once you start flossing, your gums will bleed for day or two and then they will settle down with regular flossing.
  3. Eat a balanced diet – Studies have proven that diet high in sugars and acids is not only causing damage to your teeth but also to your overall health. By eliminating sugary snacks and drinks from your everyday life you can save your teeth and general health. Substitute juices and soft drinks with water, eat fresh fruit and vegetables and limit the intake of sweet treats. Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids which causes cavities and damage to teeth.
  4. See your Dentist regularly – Regular dental appointments can detect early decay and any other dental problems before they start causing you pain and discomfort. Getting your checkup and scale & clean done on 6-12 monthly basis reduces your chances of having gum disease. At Heritage Dental group, we take special care in training our patients in good brushing and flossing habits.
  5. Avoid smoking and Tobacco – As we are all aware of side affects of smoking and tobacco, Smoking and tobacco can stain your teeth, gives you bad breath, chances of oral health and increases your chances of periodontal disease which increases inflammation around your teeth and results in losing teeth. Talk to our dentist how this affects your oral health.

Your Oral Health and General Health!

Connection between Oral Health and overall health! 

your oral health and general health

Research shows and suggests that your oral health and general health are interrelated. On one side,a healthy mouth can save you from medical problems, on the other hand unhealthy and poor oral hygiene can cause you general health problems. As we all know, we should brush, floss and see our dentist for regular dental check-ups to make sure we have optimum oral health. Do you know that your oral health is directly connected to your entire body well-being?  To know more in detail on this topic, here is a link to Australian Dental Association and Dental Health Services Victoria.

  • Gum Disease and tooth decay- Researches have proved that people with gum-disease or periodontitis are more likely to have heart disease. People with gum disease have inflammation in their gum tissue and bacteria produce toxins that go down in the blood stream through normal chewing and brushing.Your oral health and general health
  • Tobacco use– Smoking results in bad breath, stained teeth and increases your chances of developing mouth and lung cancer.
  • Diet–  A diet high in sugars and acids increases your risk of cavities and your general health concerns like Diabetes and Obesity.
  • Poor oral hygiene habits– Not brushing your teeth regularly and on right time, not flossing regularly and building up of plaque on teeth.
