Braces School And Your Children | Dentist Glen Waverly

Braces, School, And Your Children

It is that time again for kids and parents throughout Australia – going back to school. While this can be a wonderful time for kids, it can also be stressful for students who recently got braces.

In addition to wondering what other students might think or say about them, students returning to school with braces also have to make changes to their daily routine. These changes may seem ordinary and controllable when a youngster is at home, but they can be overwhelming at school, particularly during the first few days back.

Gum Disease – Causes, Care, And Cure

In order to have a solid house, it should rest on a strong foundation. And the same thing is true of your teeth – without a solid foundation in your gums, your teeth, appearance, and overall health will suffer.

In Australia the average percentage of people with this disease is around 22%. People over 65 have rates approaching 53%! And gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Consequently, it is very important you recognize the signs of gum disease and know how to treat, cure, and prevent it.

At EK Dental Surgery we are here to work with you to ensure that your gums are the strong foundation of your complete dental health!

Ek Dental Surgery | Diabetes Periodontal Health And Their Link | Dentist Glen Waverley

Diabetes, Periodontal Health, And Their Link

During the past 10 years, a lot of research has been undertaken on the link between diabetes and periodontal disease. We have learned that periodontal disease is the sixth leading complication of diabetes.

This means that if you have diabetes, you are 3 to 4 times more likely to develop periodontal disease, with a higher rate of more severe levels of bone loss and gum infection.

Ouch! And it’s an ‘ouch’ to your dental health, overall health, and pocketbook.

This is why EK Dental Surgery believes it is important or our patients to know about diabetes, periodontal disease, and how they interact.

What Are The Most Popular Braces Options For Adults? | Dentist Glen Waverley

What Are The Most Popular Braces Options For Adults?

Does the word braces create a picture in your mind of a teenager with a mouth overstuffed with metal? That may have been how it was in the bad old days, but braces are a very different thing today.

Which is good, particularly for any adults who feel that they’ve missed their opportunity to get the smile they’ve always wanted instead of the crooked teeth they have.

So, while orthodontic treatments are often imagined to only be appropriate for children and teenagers, in fact they are also appropriate and effective for adults as well. Adult orthodontic treatments are extremely effective in correcting crooked teeth, overbites, and all manner of other oral problems in more mature patients.
