Dentistry has evolved significantly over time, from pulling a tooth because of cavity to metal and gold fillings to tooth colouring filling materials. Then, porcelain material was introduced as a reliable alternative to fillings in certain cases. As technology has improved, so has the pain control, teeth replacement and teeth straightening options.

Melbourne based general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Reuben Sim from Dental Boutique shares interesting facts for you to chew on and the importance of good oral health.

  1. Did you know that 50% of people notice your smile first?
    People notice your smile first before your eyes, smell, clothes and hair. This is why it is important to maintain proper oral health because you never know who is falling in love with it.
  2. Did you know that 1 in 7 Australians suffer from dental fear?
    Dental fear is one of the country’s most prevalent anxiety disorders in the country. Luckily, advanced dental clinics use modern techniques and technology to provide virtually pain-free dentistry to their patients. 
  3. Did you know your body health is linked to your oral health?
    Research shows that the risk of health problems such as heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes and gum disease is increased with poor oral hygiene. Regular exercise and a healthy diet can decrease these chances.

Have you heard of the old adage, “prevention is better than a cure”? A regular six monthly dental check-up and clean is essential to ensure optimal oral health. It is important to find a dentist whom you trust and one that is committed to keeping your mouth healthy.
