Obesity and Periodontal Disease

Are you overweight by any chance – or do you have periodontal disease? Researchers have found that people who are obese are more likely to have periodontal disease – and people who have periodontal disease are more likely to be obese. Apparently, they have this relationship as each of them causes general inflammation in the body, which then makes the other more likely.

So, if you are overweight or obese, please come to see your Epping Dentist at Rawson Dental, so we can…

Sleep apnoea

Most people these days know that obstructive sleep apnoea has something to do with snoring and is not a good thing to have – and it is mentioned on the website for your Epping Dentist at Rawson Dental, Epping. But is obstructive sleep apnoea the same thing as snoring? Snoring is very common amongst adults – particularly these days when so many are overweight or obese – so does that mean that all snoring adults have obstructive sleep apnoea?

Oral care with dentures

If you are about to get a denture fitted, your Epping Dentist team at Rawson Dental really want you to know how to care for your oral hygiene in this new situation.
