Australians Are Not Known For Their Healthy Teeth…

Unfortunately when it comes to our teeth as a nation we are not as diligent as we could be

According to recent studies it was found that Australians are not known by the rest of the world for their beautiful smiles. Although we do have some beautiful spokespeople for the Australian smile such as Lara Bingle and Jennifer Hawkins, it seems that the rest of us are not so lucky. You have most likely heard that the British are notorious for their unsightly smiles, so it might be unsurprising to find that we also have a reputation for less than perfect teeth. Although we can make excuses and blame our ancestry it all comes down to our individual dedication to our smiles. In order to keep on top of your smile, Millennium Dental Mosman in Mosman is here to provide thorough dental treatment and knowledge.

Three in five 15 year olds have tooth decay in their adult teeth

This Australian dental statistic is quite nerve-wracking for dentists and parents alike! 3 in 5 is a majority and this trend doesn’t stop at adolescents, it was also found by a study performed by the Australian Institute of Health and Wellbeing that individuals over the age of 65 had an average of 23 teeth affected by cavity or tooth decay. These statistics do not bode well for the upcoming years and they should serve as an example of what’s expected if you neglect to preserve and treat your teeth with proper care and dental hygiene.

How detrimental are cavities to my health?

Cavities are potentially harmful to your gums, wellbeing and of course your teeth. Cavities and tooth decay have been linked to a number of complications such as bad breath and even heart disease. When it comes to heart disease it has been determined that there is a possibility that tooth decay promotes a pro-inflammatory state in the body as well as the fact that it is thought that bacterial infections of the mouth can get into the bloodstream. Once bacteria are in the blood stream it can then infect other parts of the body such as valves in the heart.

Give your teeth a hearty clean…

Here at Millennium Dental Mosman we can provide a general dental check-up and in-depth clean leaving your mouth free of debris and tartar that can build up quickly if you do not properly brush your teeth. We can also book you in for a visit with one of our dental hygienists who will ensure your on-going dental health. Many people do not truly understand what a hygienist does, so it’s important to know that their skillset expands far beyond ensuring that you brush and floss your teeth before bed. These are the individuals who will professionally clean your teeth utilising the latest pastes, polishes and knowledge to leave your mouth free of bacteria. This is an integral part of the dental process as if plaque and tartar is left untreated it can develop into gingivitis and periodontitis.

Our dental hygienist appointments usually last for one hour, where you’ll have thorough in-depth analysis of your mouth including going through your daily habits and how often you visit the dentist. In order to keep a healthy mouth it is suggested that you visit the dentist twice a year. This will ensure that you are keeping on top of all potential dental complications and protecting yourself from heart disease, cavities, bad breath and tooth extraction.
