Goodbye 2013….. It’s been great!

Happy-New-Year from Your Perfect Smile Dental Clinic

As the last few hours of 2013 loom we can’t help but look back and realise what a great year it was for us here at YPSDC.
Our 2 fabulous nurses, Sheree and Amy passed their course with flying colours and earned their Dental Nurse qualifications. We are all so proud at how hard they worked throughout their course and the dedication they put in.
We have recently welcomed a new Trainee Nurse to the team, Alexandra and she has fitted right in and feels like a part of the furniture already!
We said a sad farewell to our Clinic Manager Lisa this month and wish her all the best in her new venture and we’ll have a peppermint tea on stand-by for the visits she has promised us. (more…)

Sensitive teeth

Tips-on-sensitive-teeth

Tooth sensitivity is never fun, especially when it’s caused by your favourite food and drink, be it hot, cold, sweet or acidic.

Most likely it  is caused by the gradual exposure of the softer part of your tooth that lies under the tooth enamel, called “dentine”.

Dentine has tiny tubes (‘tubules’) that lead to the nerve and are filled with fluid. Eating or drinking foods and drinks that are hot, cold or sweet can cause a change in fluid movement. This fluid movement causes the nerve endings to react in response, triggering a short, sharp pain. (more…)

Before and After. See how your smile could look in 5 minutes! Smile imaging for help.

Smile before and after

“Before and after” Can you really see what your smile could look like before you decide if you want any treatment? Before  you even sit on a dental chair?

It almost sounds too good to be true !

But Yes ! It is possible now  with a computer software which lets you see how great your smile can look with the click of a button.
Ever wondered how you would look with that gap closed?
With your teeth a bit whiter?
A bit bigger, smaller, longer, shorter?
How about those discoloured or amalgam fillings replaced?
Well now you can!
We are so excited with our latest piece of equipment….. Snap! (more…)

Which toothpaste do I choose? Everyday dilemma

Is toothpaste on your shopping list this week?
Have you looked at the selection on the supermarket shelves lately? I typed ‘toothpaste’ into a well-known supermarket online shop and no less than 118 options were available….. 118!!

Toothpastes all have a common aim – to clean teeth. By cleaning teeth you remove food debris and any plaque which is forming. Plaque needs to be removed to decrease the risk of decay and gum disease. Companies spend huge amounts of money for scientists and dental experts to formulate the toothpastes we have available today.

So, where do you even start to decide which one to use? Maybe one you’ve used for 20 years, or whichever one’s on offer at half price, or the one that promises you’ll have a Hollywood smile in a week?
Sometimes it’s easy just to stick with what we know but it’s time to think of your dental needs – a little change could be just the thing your teeth and gums need.

Denture on Implants / implant retained denture

Recently we have written about all the challenges which come with having a full denture and briefly advised about the denture on implants option.

If you know someone struggling with a denture or in need of one and petrified of getting it, this is something you should definitely read.

We’ve all heard about dental implants but still many people wrongly think that if all teeth are missing already or are about to be removed it’s too late for dental implants.

If you are one of them here is a good news- It’s not too late at all. It’s the perfect time to take full advantage of them and avoid dealing with loose, “living its own life inside your mouth” false teeth.

Missing teeth? Denture or Implants- What do I need to know?

Deciding on what to do when teeth are missing or we are about to lose them can be the toughest decision to make.

Not so long ago the only choice the patient had was to get a full acrylic denture. And yes, as much as we usually don’t like the idea of a denture soaking in the glass on the bedside table, it is a cheap and fast way of restoring missing teeth.

The question we have to ask ourselves when we make this type of decision is: Are we going to be happy with a denture?
