Is Whitening Safe ?

Generally, teeth whitening is a safe treatment.


However, it is not for everybody. That is why, it is very important that a proper examination and consultation is sought from a dentist to ensure whether the teeth whitening is suitable for you or not! Results vary from person to person! Your dentist can suggest a few different methods to whiten your teeth either in the office or at home. More information on the teeth whitening options can be sought from at Watervale Dental's website.

An appointment with a dentist can be booked by contacting the clinic at 03-9307 8620 during business hours.

OPG X-Ray’s enable broad coverage of facial bones and teeth including the TMJ (temperomandibular joint). It provides better diagnosis in patients who are restricted in opening their mouth. The digital image can be produced almost instantaneously and can be shared with specialists if required.

Aggravated Toothache in Winters

Aggravated Toothache in Winters

If you already have tooth sensitivity, you likely experience discomfort whenever your teeth become cold. In the coldest parts of winter, however, the low temperature itself can cause tooth damage that contributes to sensitivity.

Like most materials, teeth enamel expands when warm and contracts when cold. When exposed to extreme cold or to short intervals of extreme cold and warmth, teeth may experience thermal stress. In serious cases, thermal stress leaves tiny cracks in your enamel as it contracts, exposing the inner layer of your teeth and causing sensitive the winter.

These seasonal illnesses such as colds, flus, and sinus infections can all contribute to sensitive teeth because they inflame the maxillary sinus. The maxillary sinus sits directly above your upper front teeth and, when the sinus becomes inflamed, may put pressure on that area.

If you have wintertime tooth sensitivity, schedule an appointment at Watervale Dental. It’s important to identify whether gum disease or tooth decay are contributing to your discomfort. Once we determine the causes of your tooth sensitivity, our team can recommend strategies to decrease your pain and reduce the risk of future sensitivity.
