Dental Care is Important During Pregnancy

Half of all pregnant women will experience gingivitis, or gum inflammation during pregnancy. Gingivitis leads to periodontal disease, which is a serious infection of the gums. Pregnant women are also at risk of cavities. Adequate dental care ensures that high risk issues are prevented and treated, giving the pregnant woman and her baby the best chance of positive health outcomes. 

Why is Periodontal Disease Concerning?

Pregnant women with periodontal disease are also more likely to experience complications during pregnancy and delivery. It has been linked to preterm birth and low birth weight for the baby.  These complications and others can be severe in extreme cases, so act quickly if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. Time is of the essence during pregnancy. It may seem like you have plenty but it goes quickly!

The Reason Dental Health Can Decline During Pregnancy

There are links to hormonal changes that alter the acidity of the mouth. This causes damage to enamel, gums and increases the risk of decay and cavities. In addition, during pregnancy women are more likely to eat foods high in sugar and at unusual times of the day. Dental care can also be forgotten about since there is so much to do, prepare and think about already in preparation for expanding a family. If severe morning sickness or even hyperemesis gravidarum is experienced, vomiting can be especially damaging to your oral health.

Pregnancy dental care

What Can I do?

Visit the dentist for a check up and clean every single trimester and practice good oral hygiene habits at home. These include brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and using mouthwash. Tobacco use, which increases the risk of developing gingivitis or periodontal disease, should also be avoided.

If you are pregnant or planning a baby, book in for your check ups and cleans here. The best outcomes are achieved by planning ahead before anything gets in the way. Prioritise yourself and your baby by taking good care of your teeth and gums.

Most dental work is safe during pregnancy, but the second trimester is the best time to get and procedures done, to ensure your comfort and safety.

Our dentists here at Dakabin Dental would be happy to answer questions you may have regarding oral health before, during or after pregnancy. Contact us today on (07) 3888 7752

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-coloured materials such as porcelain or plastic.

They are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to your teeth changing their colour, shape, size, or length.

What are the different types?

Veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials.

Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers, and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.

Resin veneers are thinner and require less removal of tooth structure before placement.

Why are veneers used?

They can be used to correct a number of dental problems, including:

  • Misshapen teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or too large
  • Chips or cracks in the tooth enamel
  • Stains on the teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

 

Veneers can give you a beautiful, white and healthy-looking smile. They are durable and long-lasting. With proper care, veneers can last for many years. They are stain resistant and easy to keep clean.

What care and maintenance is involved?

Veneers require the same care as natural teeth.

Be sure to brush and floss daily, and see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleaning.

Avoid biting hard objects as this can damage them. Also avoid using abrasive toothpastes or whiteners that can scratch the surface.

What does our veneers process involve?

  1. Initial consultation to discover your needs and goals
  2. Formulate cosmetic plan according to your budget
  3. Teeth preparation: gentle shaping in order for them to hold veneer
  4. Permanent veneers placed by our cosmetic dentistry experts

One of the most common treatments in cosmetic dentistry today is Zoom Teeth Whitening.

Who doesn’t want a brighter, healthy-looking smile?

A smile is one of the first things people notice and a confident, radiant smile can leave a lasting impression on those we meet.

It’s no secret we love Zoom Teeth Whitening at Dakabin Dental, not only because of the immediate results but also the confidence it brings to our patients.

If you have recently undergone Zoom teeth whitening or are thinking about it, you may be wondering how long the results last and how to extend the life of your newly white teeth…

Keep reading to find out!

So how long does teeth whitening last?

Unfortunately, the answer is it depends.

The effects can last anywhere from 6 months to up to 2 years, varying from person to person and largely depends on how well you care for your teeth.

Teeth Whitening and Filling Treatment

As a general rule of thumb, our patients come in for an annual Zoom whitening treatment.

There are definitely some things we recommend avoiding in order to extend the life of your teeth whitening.

Things that will stain your teeth quickly and make your whitening short-lived include:

  • Smoking
  • Dark liquids (coffee, tea and red wine addicts, we are looking at you)
  • Staining foods like beetroot and berries

We wouldn’t dare to advise our patients to cut these out completely…

After all, we love a good glass of red and warm cup of coffee as much as the next person!

But we do recommend avoiding these staining foods as much as possible.

Or, and here us out, drinking dark liquids through a straw. No? Ok, fair enough ;). 

Brushing your teeth twice a day will also help to keep your teeth whitening noticeable for as long as possible as well as getting regular check up and cleans every 6 months.

At Dakabin, our Zoom Teeth Whitening comes with a take home kit post treatment, we highly recommend following this rigorously to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.

If you are reading this blog, then chances are, you have considered teeth whitening in the past.

If you are wanting to restore those pearly whites, then keep reading because Zoom teeth whitening may be the perfect solution for you.

This popular treatment can help you achieve a brighter smile in as little as an hour.

So what’s involved?

The first step is to schedule a consultation with your dentist.

During this appointment, the Dakabin Dental team will assess the condition of your teeth and determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Your dentist will provide you with instructions on how to prepare for your appointment. You will be provided with pre-treatment instructions, which include coming to your appointment with clean teeth. This means that you should brush and floss your teeth before coming in for your treatment.

You will also need to have any metal fillings or other dental appliances removed.

The dentist will then apply a special gel to your teeth. This gel helps to open up the pores of your teeth so that the whitening solution can penetrate more deeply.

The Zoom whitening lamp will then be used to activate the bleaching solution and the light from the lamp will help to break down the stains on your teeth.

In under an hour, your teeth will be significantly whiter, in most cases Zoom whitening can achieve results up to 8 shades whiter in just one sitting!

For those coffee and red wine lovers, if there are any stubborn stains at the end of your treatment, you may recommend additional treatments.

After your treatment is complete, you will want to make sure that you take care of your teeth and follow the after care protocols very closely.

You will need to avoid eating or drinking for at least an hour after your treatment so the whitening solution has time to work and keep whitening your teeth.

Again, those coffee and red wine drinkers, you will need to avoid dark liquids and also foods for a minimum of 24 hours.

This ensures, that with diligent and proper care, your teeth will stay white and bright for months to come.

Check out this amazing Zoom whitening before and after in just one sitting! 

Teeth Whitening and Filling Treatment

So how do we achieve such amazing results?

The Zoom Whitening System uses a hydrogen peroxide gel activated by a special light to quickly remove surface and deep stains from your teeth and is far superior than any home whitening kits or beauty salon teeth whitening services.

This formulation is only able to be used by dentists and is why we can achieve instant, amazing results! The best part is that it’s completely safe for your teeth and gums.

We recommend Zoom teeth whitening twice yearly to keep those pearly whites, well white!

Zoom teeth whitening is a professional treatment that is done at the dentist.

The in chair, dental methods uses a special light to speed up the whitening process, that can make your teeth 8 shades lighter in just one visit!

The strength of product used is far superior to any home whitening kits, which is why they are only able to be used by dentists. The down side to achieving your pearly whites…

Zoom teeth whitening is more expensive than home whitening kits. An in-chair Zoom whitening treatment will cost around $750.

Home whitening kits are as the name suggests, a teeth whitening option that is done at home. They can be great option if you want to save money or whiten your teeth at your own pace in the comfort of your own home. 

Home whitening kits usually take a few days to a week to see results and the whitening solution is not as highly concentrated as the in chair Zoom whitening option.

So, which one is better? 

If you want immediate results, then Zoom teeth whitening is the way to go. Zoom teeth whitening can make your teeth up to eight shades lighter in just one visit.

You can get results like this with Zoom teeth whitening. 

Teeth Whitening and Filling Treatment

If you want to save money or whiten your teeth at your own pace, then home whitening kits can be a great option. With home whitening kits, you can see some results in a week to a few weeks of consistent use.
