Many patients often report having bad breath. This can both be socially awkward and may affect one’s confidence or presentation.
This may occur during the morning when one wakes up, which is quite normal, and is mostly due to the saliva build up whilst you sleep.
When people think of gum disease, they often think of bleeding gums and that’s it. In reality, it is much more than that. In fact, a lot of people think that just because their gums don’t bleed, they don’t have gum disease.
Think about how much use you get out of your teeth. Teeth go through an immense amount of chewing and biting actions, which place a lot of force on teeth. With time, these forces eventually weaken the teeth.
Most of us do not have enough room in our mouths to accommodate wisdom teeth. Often, this can lead to pain, infection, or decay of the teeth around them. Sometimes they are buried under the gum and bone that many people do not even realise they have wisdom teeth until it causes them problems.
Missing teeth can be unsightly, and lead to difficulty in chewing and further damage to the remaining teeth because they are doing more work than they were designed for. Missing teeth can also lead to movement of surrounding teeth to fill in the gaps where the teeth used to be.
Have you become unhappy with the colour of your teeth lately? Have people (especially young kids) made innocent remarks about the colour of your teeth? Do you find that you don’t like to smile as much or as wide as you used to due to the colour of your teeth? Don’t worry, you are not alone.
This is a serious and growing problem amongst our population. Did you know that people who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) have a 7 fold higher risk of death and heart disease? In Australia, it is estimated that 25% of men and 9% of women suffer from OSA. This condition can severely impact not only the quality of life but is life-threatening.
If you have ever suffered from a toothache, it is a pain that you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. Often, all the painkillers in the world can’t relieve it. A toothache is something that you shouldn’t have to put up with and at Renew Dental Care we place a priority on patients that are in pain from a toothache.
Over time, bacteria can accumulate on your teeth and in your mouths so much that it overwhelms your body’s natural defences. Without regular dental check-ups and cleans, plaque can build up to the point where the bacteria hiding within it can produce too much acid which is the start of dental decay.
The stresses of our modern lifestyle can lead our bodies to take it out on our teeth. We can often subconsciously clench our jaw muscles or grind our teeth together, which can lead to quite a severe destruction of our tooth structure.
