General Dental Care

General dental care is so important yet most of us do the bare minimum when it comes to our oral health. The reason most patients are anxious when they come for their check up (or avoid it altogether) is due to the fact they know they haven’t been keeping up with good general dental care. At Lasting Impressions Dental – your local Canberra Dentist, we believe in teaching our patients to look after their teeth so that they don’t need to come to the dentist for treatment that could have otherwise been prevented. It’s never to late to start good oral hygiene. Just brushing your teeth twice a day isn’t enough to keep your pearly whites protected, so read below to make sure you are making your best effort to keep your teeth clean and free of diseases. So what does good general everyday dental care involve? Brushing your teeth (but we all knew that!).  We should brush our teeth at least twice a day with a soft to medium brush. Do not scrub your teeth – be gentle, your gums can wear away with harsh brushing! Make sure you brush all of your teeth with a gentle circling motion ensuring you are brushing all the build-up on your teeth. Gently brush your gums too – but remember be gentle! If you can brush your teeth after lunch too – not just in the morning and evening. This gives your teeth the best chance of staying cavity free. Flossing (yes, you know this one too!) Floss in the morning and evening brushing your teeth alone cannot remove all the...

Dental Decay the Most Prevalent Chronic Disease in Children

It is alarming to think that dental decay is the most widespread chronic disease in children and a study by the University of Adelaide under the leadership of Associate Professor Loc Do wants to know why and what can be done to combat it. Associate Professor Do points out that dental health cannot be viewed in isolation. Diet, general health and economic circumstances all play a role. He emphasised the role preventative dental care plays in good dental health. The study, to be undertaken of up to 1800 pre school-aged children, will yield information that can be used to focus on improvements to oral health. One sure way ensuring sound dental health is a regular dental check up. Children need regular check ups as much as adults do and these should form part of your family’s health plan. The dentists at Lasting Impressions Dental know that regular check ups are critical as potential problems can be detected early and treated before they become more serious. They know too, that it can be difficult finding the time to get the kids to the dentist with all the commitments kids and and families have these days. School holidays are a great time for kids to see the dentist. No clashes with sport, school, homework or after school activities and for the September/October school holidays we are offering a special deal on children’s checkups! So there really isn’t a better time to tick this job off your to- do list. Call 6240 8383 today.

Have you had a dental check up recently?

Here are some of the reasons many of us don’t get our regular dental check up  It ‘s expensive to have your teeth checked every 6-12 months  I don’t have the time  My teeth look fine so I don’t need a check up  I’m afraid of the dentist  Dental appointments are painful Those are just a few excuses people use to not attend their regular dental check ups, but here are some reasons why you really should and that discount the above excuses! A regular trip to your dentist will ensure you are looking after your teeth well and catch dental issues before they get worse. So in reality if you are having your teeth regularly checked, you will save money! In the long run if you avoid general check ups and then one day you are hit with a horrible tooth ache, it is more likely that you are going to need extensive dental work done. Having a dental check up generally only takes 30 minutes apposed to if you have a tooth ache and need an emergency dental appointment, you may need to wait to be seen, then depending on what is wrong with your tooth this could be an extensive and more expensive appointment!
