Horizontal tooth fracture

A blow to your face near your mouth in an accident or while playing a contact sport can be dangerous. If that happens, please come to see us at your Epping Dentist as soon as you can. One of our friendly dentists can then examine your teeth in detail to ensure there is no damage to any of your teeth – or their roots.

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.

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? There is a relationship between these two – people with obstructive sleep apnoea do snore, but not everyone who snores has…
