Are you scared of going to the dentist, your not alone.

No one is born being afraid of the dentist.  You may have had a bad dental experience, or you were told a dental horror story from a relative. Such information might make you want to avoid treatment, which, unfortunately, doesn’t allow you to realise that things can be better. There are many reasons why people are afraid of getting an oral checkup, and to show you that you’re not alone in feeling this way, we’ve compiled 8 of the most common reasons why people avoid the dentist.

8. The smell of the clinic.
A dental practice has to be kept sanitary at all time, and the cleaning products used at the dentist can have a distinct smell that can give people anxiety.

7. Dental drill.
The sound of a dental drill can sound like fingernails on a chalkboard to some people. Combined with the suction tube used to remove excess water and saliva, the whole experience can be a little overwhelming to some.

6. Choking or gagging.
Dental visits often involve lots of water which has a tendency to trickle down the back of your throat, making you feel like you’re going to gag. People with a strong gag reflex often avoid going to the dentist for fear that they may choke. If you ever feel like you need the dentist to stop, it is important to not feel guilty about asking them to stop – they want you to be as comfortable as possible.

Concerned about the safety of root canal treatment?

Root canals – it might be hard to find any term in the English language more misunderstood than those two short words. As dentists, we know this misunderstanding all too well. We also know that millions of root canals are performed every year: safely, effectively and comfortably, and we want you to be informed in the medical decisions you make – including those related to your oral health.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation out there. You may even heard heard claims that root canal treatment teeth can make you sick, but these rumours are based on a nearly 100 year-old theory, and were discredited more than 50 years ago.

The fact is, there is no valid scientific evidence linking root canal treatment to other health problems. There is, however, plenty of evidence showing that leaving an infected tooth will cause adverse health problems.

Today, technologies such as digital imaging and microscopes help ensure successful root canal treatment.

Here’s how a root canal treatment works: first, your dentist will numb the tooth so that you won’t feel anything during the procedure. A small shield isolates the tooth, keeping it dry and clean. During the treatment, infection or inflammation of the root is removed and the canals are disinfected and sealed. The treated tooth is then protected by a filling or a crown.

So what’s the deal with wrinkle relaxers?

We all want to look and feel our best – no matter what age we are.

As you get older, the skin on your face and neck changes in appearance and structure due to how frequent you’re in sunlight, how often you moisturize and, of course, due to the body’s natural ageing process. Your skin may either lose volume in certain areas, or you may notice permanent fine lines and creases. You may start to look more tired than you feel, adding years to your appearance.

Starting in your late 20s and early 30s the skin’s ability to protect itself begins to decrease. It needs your help to remain smooth and firm. Wrinkle injections can easily delay the ageing process: treatments are affordable, get results and usually minimal recovery time.

How do wrinkle relaxers work, and why should I get them?

Everyone has heard the old adage – “I’d prefer to age gracefully”. With wrinkle relaxers, you can slow the ageing process by preventing wrinkles from forming while your skin is still supple. Doing this avoids having to resort to invasive plastic surgery procedures when it’s too late to reverse deep-set wrinkles.

Relaxants prevent wrinkles from forming by introducing the muscle to a bacteria that blocks nerve activity, causing a temporary reduction in the contractile strength of that muscle. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which prevents skin from crinkling, as well as relaxing and softening existing wrinkles. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines, and generally lasts about 3 to 6 months depending on the patient.

Make better dental health your New Years resolution

New years resolutions are always easier said than done. Actually sticking to your resolutions can be tricky, but the secret is to make small, manageable changes instead of one big change. If you want to take better care of your teeth and gums this year, just follow these four steps and you’ll notice an improvement in no time!

1. Book a dental checkup – TODAY.
If it’s been a long time since you’ve last seen your dentist, you’re not the only one. Booking in with your dentist and having them check your teeth might give you that motivational boost you need. It might be that your oral health isn’t as bad as you had originally thought, and those bright beautiful teeth may be achieved in just a few appointments!
In saying that, even if your teeth seem to be in good nick you should still have regular checkups. There are some oral conditions that aren’t detectable, and your dentist can take x-rays that will pick up any issues that you can’t see with the naked eye (such as deep cavities, cracks or signs of oral cancer).

2. Reduce your sugar intake
Small switches, such as drinking soda water instead of lemonade, or just having half a spoon of sugar instead of two spoons of sugar with your morning coffee will make all the difference. Oral bacteria use sugar as a source of energy, therefore reducing the amount of energy available to them will reduce the amount of plaque in your mouth. Less plaque means fewer tooth cavities, which means fewer fillings at the dentist! Not only is it better for your teeth, but reducing your intake of sugars will also be better for your overall health in the long run.
