Eat before an extraction!

Eat before an extraction!

Some patients choose not to eat anything before having a dental extraction. This can sometimes result in patients feeling lightheaded in the surgery, and occasionally fainting. Its always best to eat something which is nutrient dense before an extraction. If a patient is unable to eat, at least ingest a drink that contains sugar such as a sweetened cordial. This will ensure blood sugar levels will not fall too low during a procedure so we can avoid this sort of complication.

If you have any other questions regarding your next procedure you can call our Morwell dental practice on (03) 5134 1311.

Bleaching is a popular, non-invasive procedure that will enhance the colour of your teeth. There are a number of alternatives to bleaching. We would advise making an appointment at our surgery in Morwell at least several weeks before your wedding day to discuss these options at the chairside and allow sufficient time for treatment.

Denture Care Tips

Denture Care Tips

Many patients who wear dentures are somewhat uncertain as to how they should maintain them. While there may be some differences between full and partial denture care the basics apply to both:
 
Take your dentures out at night. Everything needs a break! Your mouth is no different. Every denture is a foreign body to the mouth, therefore sleeping without dentures in position will aid mouth hygiene and greatly reduce the risk of tooth decay in partial denture wearers.
 
Clean your denture(s) with a soft bristle brush and consider soaking them in an enzymatic cleaner (Such as Polident denture cleanser) overnight. For those prone to developing calculus on their denture(s) consider soaking the denture(s) in one part white vinegar to one part water. This mildly acidic solution will aid in your ability to remove calculus from the denture.
 
Partial denture wearers are encouraged to remove their dentures after every meal to clean both their natural dentition and denture. Of course, regular dental examinations are also important to monitor your dentures and hygiene routine.
 
Bleeding Gums? Worried about tartar?

Bleeding Gums? Worried about tartar?

Patients often complain of ‘bleeding gums’ when they present for routine dental treatment. While there are a number of uncommon reasons for this problem, by far the most obvious cause is inflammation due to plaque and or calculus (tartar). Patients sometimes induce bleeding when brushing, and feel they need to reduce the frequency of brushing as they feel the oral hygiene measure is the problem. In fact, leaving plaque deposits alone will only lead to more inflammation and more bleeding! Everyone should be brushing thoroughly at least twice daily. Regular examinations and scaling are vital to maintain the health of your gums. Don’t ignore bleeding gums- address the underlying cause and the problem will resolve. We are available to help manage and guide you should bleeding gums or tartar be a concern.
