Dental visits in a time of pandemic

It’s quite possible that your regular visits to your Dentist Epping went out the window during the past year with COVID-19’s interruption of our lives.

Looking after your kidneys as well as your oral health

It turns out that your Epping Dentist does much more for you than caring for your dental health – great though that is! We used to think that brushing our teeth was just for keeping our teeth clean, but now we know it’s for more than that.

What’s the best way to brush your teeth?

We at your Epping Dentist are always going on about how important it is, so we decided to give you a quick “brush up” on brushing your teeth! Please, do read this as you might learn something very useful you didn’t previously know. The first thing is to use a small, soft brush.

Healthy bite – occlusion and malocclusion

When you come to your friendly dentist at Epping Dentist for a check-up, one of the things he or she will check is your occlusion – or malocclusion. “Occlusion” and “Malocclusion” are just fancy terms that refer to how the teeth in your upper and lower jaws touch each other and how they move sideways when you close your jaws. Healthy occlusion, a healthy bite, occurs when your teeth are in touch with each other as they are meant to. Your upper and lower molars will interlock simultaneously and evenly with a little more pressure than on the teeth in…
