Coronavirus and teeth cleaning

What on earth does coronavirus have to do with cleaning teeth, you might be wondering. Well, it goes like this … You most probably want to avoid catching Covid-19, if not for your sake, but certainly, so you can’t pass it onto other family members who might be elderly or have other health issues. It would be much more dangerous for those people than yourself, perhaps. Though some young and healthy people do get very sick and suffer long-term consequences to their health – and some even die.

Oral health and heart disease

Apart from the dental problems associated with poor oral health, it appears that poor oral health is related to heart disease – heart attack and stroke. This is of concern to the competent and friendly staff at your Epping Dentist too! They want you to have a healthy mouth and a healthy heart!

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. The sooner we can diagnose a cracked tooth, the better, as there is more chance then that the tooth can be saved, rather than extracted. Sometimes, you may not realise that one of your teeth was…
