  • How often should I get a dental clean ?
    We all keep our mouths at different levels of ‘clean’. Some patients become quite OCD about brushing and flossing and almost over clean their teeth, yes there is such a thing, and some patients don’t even know where their toothbrush lives. For this reason everyone requires different levels of care from the dental hygienist – based on their overall gum condition. Patients who have great gum health where the gums are firm pink and not inflamed can get away with annual cleans and patients who have poor gum health where the gums are red inflamed swollen and bleeding (Gingivitis) can require up to 3 monthly cleans to keep in good health.
  • What are early signs of dental trouble ?
    A lot of Kiwis tend to wait until something hurts………..however this approach is like being the ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. Yes pain is an indicator that things are not right however pain is also a sign of nerve or pulp involvement and this is usually when a crack has become very deep or a hole has become very deep – the resulting treatments are often more extreme and expensive. Getting through to a dentist on at least an annual basis is the best thing that you can do. Having regular xrays to pick up early problems between you teeth is also essential to prevent any major issues from cropping up. Any signs like bleeding gums – bad breath – sensitive teeth or just anything that changes is a pretty good reason to get in for a check up.
  • How do fillings work ?
    Fillings are a type of restoration. Basically – if decay has destroyed part of the tooth or you have chipped your tooth we can rebuild the tooth with a filling. These days there a lots of different options and materials we can use. The most common material is composite which is tooth coloured. All of the clever scientists have created composites that mimic the esthetics of natural teeth and is a great option for rebuilding teeth mildly damaged. Any teeth which have had extensive damage sometimes require crowns or veneers – your dentist will assess this at the time. Silver fillings are no longer used widely in dentistry.
  • Does dental care hurt ?
    modern anesthetics dentistry should be pain free ! If its not – change your dentist.
  • Are dental x-rays safe and do I need them ?
    X Rays for dental use are extremely safe and low dosage. Did you know one ‘check up’ dental x ray is the equivalent x ray dosage as eating two bananas ! Yes Bananas have a radioactive isotope……they are still safe to eat, don’t worry! We are surrounded by low levels of background radiation – approximately 10x daily the amount of radiation from one dental x ray. We are not saying have as much radiation as you like – we are saying that dental xrays are relatively low in dosage compared with the things out there you may not have known expose us to radiation. Any x rays taken are taken for a diagnostic reason to ensure you don’t have underlying dental health issues which would be more detrimental to your health than a very low safe dose of radiation. Your dentist will be happy to chat through this further if your still not convinced.
  • Does DENTSPA have an AIRFLOW machine?
    Yes! We have an AIRFLOW prophylaxis master to clean your teeth painlessly.
  • What is an AIRFLOW?
    AIRFLOW is a revolutionary non-contact form of dental maintaineance and prevention. It projects a controlled stream of air, warm water and very fine powder onto the tooth and in hard-to-reach areas to dislodge and remove food particles, plaque and discolouration and stains. DENTSPA is a licensed GBT AIR FLOW practitioner.
