Dental Work and Holidays: A Guide for Travellers
Just because you go on holiday, doesn't mean that the bacteria on your mouth does. Hi! My name is Mandi, and as a lover of travelling, I have taken a lot of trips. Unfortunately, I have also had the misfortune to suffer from dental issues on those trips. This blog focuses on everything related to travelling and dental work. I plan to have posts on picking the right travel insurance for your teeth, dealing with a broken tooth when abroad, dental tourism and more. I hope that you find the information that you need and that your next holiday goes well. Now, let's smile together from wherever we are in the world! Happy travels!
One of the most common cosmetic procedures is teeth whitening. This procedure is a simple and non-invasive procedure. Patients who go for this procedure either have tooth discolouration or want to brighten their teeth. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about teeth whitening.
What Causes Tooth Discolouration?
Many factors can cause tooth discolouration. These include aging, genetics, or consuming staining substances like red wine, cola, tea, coffee, and tobacco.
It can be a bit daunting to go to the dentist, something you've done countless times before, only to be fully sedated. When it comes to wisdom teeth removal, the procedure can often be carried out under local anaesthetic, sometimes with partial sedation. But what about when your dentist tells you that your own wisdom teeth removal needs to take place under general anaesthetic?
Your dentist will decide on a case-by-case basis whether general anaesthetic is appropriate for wisdom teeth removal.
Dental care is perhaps the most overlooked part of many people's regular health routines. It is quite common for people to think they can get away with simply being a regular brusher and flosser, but the truth is that even with good home care you still need a professional to check up on your teeth at least once every six months. When it comes to children's dentistry, this is even more vital, as their dental situation can change much quicker and severe problems can develop much quicker if you are not careful.
