If you’re trying to find out how often you should see a dentist, the general consensus is typically every six months. It is recommended that you visit your dentist on a regular basis and as a rule of thumb, don’t wait until your teeth hurt to see the dentist!

We don’t want to scare you, but by the time you start experiencing a toothache, there might already be a serious underlying issue. So if it’s been a little while since your last checkup, do yourself and your teeth a favour and book an appointment with your local dentist today.

Get Proactive With Your Oral Health

Proactive care is more often than not a much better way to prevent health concerns. The same goes for your teeth!

  • Brush twice a day
  • Don’t forget to lightly brush your tongue
  • Floss daily
  • Use mouthwash
  • Don’t smoke
  • Invoke a healthier diet rich in vitamins and
  • Visit the dentist twice a year

These simple steps will help to prevent tooth decay and other tooth and gum-related diseases so that your oral hygiene is tip-top.

Dental Health Concerns That Come With Not Looking After Your Teeth

Here are some oral concerns that dentists regularly see – and help to treat and prevent:

  • Tooth decay
  • Wisdom teeth growth
  • Gum disease
  • Cavities
  • Root canals

If not prevented or treated with proper guidance from an experienced dentist, these concerns can become uncomfortable and painful. That’s why proactive care is essential for healthy teeth, gums and smiles.

Of course, we understand that some of these dental concerns can happen even when people have been kind to their oral hygiene.

Dakabin Dental are experts in smile makeovers and smile transformations and offer free consultations for those looking to boost their confidence with a healthy-looking smile.

Why Are My Teeth Hurting?

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, we recommend booking an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Although it may be nothing of concern, it’s best to have a checkup to rule out any issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

There’s no need to be alarmed, there are multiple reasons why your teeth might suddenly feel more sensitive than usual including:

  • Age – Developing sensitive teeth over time is a natural ageing process. You might need to switch your regular toothpaste for desensitising toothpaste.
  • Exposing your teeth to extremely hot or cold food and beverages
  • Your at-home whitening kit is damaging your gums
  • You’re over-brushing or brushing too hard
  • Acid reflux
  • Medications
  • The mouthwash you use is too harsh
  • Grinding your teeth – possibly in your sleep
  • Loose fillings

These are all common toothache and tooth sensitivity concerns that can easily be treated.

See The Dentist Twice a Year

Seeing the dentist bi-annually ensures that any problems with teeth and gums are caught early on and can be treated before they become more serious issues.

At Dakabin Dental, our experienced dentists provide comprehensive care in a friendly environment. We offer treatments such as cleanings, fillings, crowns, and root canal therapy to ensure your teeth stay healthy and strong.

In addition to preventive care, we also offer teeth whitening and smile makeover services that will help you achieve a brighter, straighter, confident smile! We believe in providing personalized care tailored to each individual’s needs because we understand how important it is to have healthy teeth and gums.

Your first trip to the dentist can be an exciting and frightening experience (depending on the movies you’ve watched!), and one that may even define a lifetime of dental care.

We understand that first trips to the dentist can be daunting for kids and their parents alike. That’s why we created this article as a comprehensive guide to first dental visits.

We will cover topics ranging from what you should expect when taking your child to the dentist, tips on how to prepare them mentally and emotionally, and helpful advice on maintaining healthy dental habits.

When To Book Your Child’s First Dental Appointment

Most first-time dental visits are scheduled around age three or four, though it is recommended that you take your child in for checkups as soon as possible after their first tooth appears.

During these initial checkup appointments, our dentists focus on a thorough examination of your child’s teeth and gums. They will check for any signs of cavities, decay, or other dental issues that need attention.

The trained dental team at Dakabin Dental understand that some children may not be so keen on their first trip to the dentist. We have a very welcoming approach for children visiting for the first time and endeavour to make them feel as comfortable and safe as possible.

How to Prepare Your Child for Their First Dental Visit

It is important to prepare your child mentally before the first visit. Let them know that going to the dentist is an important part of keeping their teeth healthy and strong. Explain to them that they can expect gentle brushing and counting of their teeth.

Additionally, make sure you let them know that our dentists are here to help keep their mouths clean and healthy – not to hurt them in any way! We love seeing big happy smiles on our younger patients and we want to keep it that way.

What You Can Do At Home to Prepare Your Children for the Dentist

To ensure a successful first trip to the dentist, we recommend establishing good oral hygiene habits at home first.

Here are a few minor habits you can do at home before bringing your kids to the dentist for the first time:

  • Ensure children brush twice daily for two minutes each
  • Encourage kids to eat healthy foods.

If you can make dental care a part of your child’s routine at home first, they will be more comfortable visiting the dentist.

Book With Dakabin

At our office, we strive to make first dental trips as stress-free as possible! We provide a fun and welcoming atmosphere that will put both you and your kids at ease. Our dentists are highly experienced in working with children and understand the unique needs of their patients.

Unfortunately, some children have weak teeth and gums and are prone to tooth decay. Dakabin Dental offers complete smile makeovers for both adults and children. Hopefully, with the right dental care and maintenance from a young age, together we can avoid this in your child’s future!

If you have any further questions or would like to schedule an appointment please contact us or book online today.

Not sure what you’re aching teeth are a sign of? There are a few different things that aching teeth can be a sign of. For example, tooth decay or gum disease may be causing your discomfort. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, it’s important to see a dentist to determine the cause and get the appropriate treatment.

What’s Causing Your Teeth to Ache?

Toothache can be caused by clenching or grinding your teeth, which can put pressure on the tooth and cause it to ache. In some cases, a toothache may be caused by an abscessed tooth, which is a serious infection typically caused by a cracked or broken tooth. If you have an abscessed tooth, you’ll need to see a dentist as soon as possible for treatment.

Here are a few things that might be aiding in your toothache worries:

  • You clench your jaw (and your teeth) when you’re feeling certain emotions (anger, frustration, concentration etc)
  • Using mouthwash multiple times a day
  • Extreme endurance training
  • Stuffed sinuses
  • Nerve damage
  • Using at-home whitening kits
  • An acidic diet
  • Not drinking enough water

If you’re not sure what’s causing your tooth pain, see a dentist so they can diagnose the problem and recommend the best treatment. Taking good care of your teeth and gums can help prevent toothaches from happening in the first place. Be sure to brush twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.

Home-Remedies for Numbing Tooth Ache

If you’ve been experiencing oral or tooth pain for more than two days skip the remedies and book with your local dentist to have a checkup instead.

In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to help ease your toothache.

  1. Rinse your mouth with warm water, salt water, or a baking soda solution to help reduce swelling and inflammation.
  2. You can also try placing a cold compress on your cheek to numb the pain.
  3. If you’re still in discomfort, over-the-counter pain medication may help. Be sure to follow the instructions on the packaging and never exceed the recommended dosage.

With proper care, your toothache should eventually go away. But if the pain persists or gets worse, be sure to see a dentist as soon as possible.

What We Can Do To Help

Dakabin Dental is passionate about oral care and we want to see all of our patients walk away with confidence and winning smiles.

If you’ve been experiencing any sort of oral discomfort or low self-esteem caused by your teeth, we’ll give you a general dental checkup and a perfect smile makeover to have you grinning your widest tooth grin again in no time.

Don’t let walking around with a painful expression on your face be normal. Book online with Dakabin Dental today and we’ll get to the root cause of your tooth pain.

Most of us are taught from a young age that we need to brush our teeth and reduce our sugar intake to avoid cavities and tooth decay. While these are important steps, there is more that can be done to proactively prevent decay. A more holistic approach can greatly improve your chances of stopping decay and preventing more in the future.

Mouth Breathing vs. Nasal Breathing for Decay

Breathing through your mouth dries it out, which makes it harder for your immune system to fight bacteria. Nasal breathing is a good habit to learn. Not only does it moisten the mouth, but it also allows the nose to filter air before it reaches the lungs. This filtered air contains less bacteria, which reduces the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth.

Eat Whole Foods

Eating whole foods helps your teeth’s natural immune defense system, and this includes eating products with full fat which ensures you are including all the important fat soluble vitamins like A, E & K. Processed foods also tend to be high in sugar and low in nutrients, which can lead to cavities and decay.

 Decay

Take Oral Probiotics for Decay

Oral probiotics help to maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in the mouth, which can neutralise harmful bacteria. Without oral probiotics, this harmful bacteria can build up and lead to cavities or gum disease.

Include Crunchy Raw Vegetables

Raw vegetables help keep your teeth healthy. They are low in sugars and the crunching action required to eat them help create saliva, which helps protect your teeth from cavities. Without raw vegetables (or any other food that requires crunching), there is less saliva produced, which leaves teeth more vulnerable to decay. The work your mouth and jaw has to do to eat such foods also strengthens it which can help prevent crooked teeth from forming or worsening!

By incorporating these simple steps into your daily routine, you can proactively prevent tooth decay and cavities. So start with quick-win changes & add in others as you are able to. The benefits will be most profound in your children, who can experience the life changing habits compounding over time. But you will also notice an improvement in your own dental health over time!
