Dental x-rays (radiographs) are images of the teeth and bones in the mouth. They are an important part of your dental care, as they are the safest and most effective way to diagnose and detect problems and diseases that cannot be observed with the naked eye.

Dental X-rays, together with an oral examination, allow your dentist to gather all the necessary information and establish a correct and complete diagnosis. They also help your dentist decide on a treatment plan and monitor the...

 

Whether we like it or not, our smile can often determine how we feel about ourselves. The search for beauty and the importance given to a beautiful smile is not new-it can be traced to the earliest civilizations. But unlike in earlier times, now we can transform your smile into the one you’ve been dreaming about.

Gum disease is often caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque. Daily brushing twice a day along with daily flossing helps to remove it.

But no matter how well you brush your teeth, there are always spots that are difficult to clean. Bacterial plaque can accumulate there, which gradually turns into a hard substance called tartar or calculus and cannot be removed by brushing alone.

Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissues and the surrounding bone of the teeth. Periodontitis is the second and most serious stage of gum disease and if left untreated, it can gradually cause teeth to loosen and fall out or to have to be removed by your dentist.

Periodontitis usually occurs when gingivitis is left untreated. It is caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque above and below the gum line, which creates tiny gaps where plaque...

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease that can lead to redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums. It is usually perceived when brushing your teeth and flossing, or when chewing on something hard.

The main cause of gingivitis is the accumulation of plaque, a layer of bacteria that grows on, around and in between the teeth. These bacteria irritate the gums and can cause inflammation, while if left untreated they can cause more serious problems, such as periodontitis.

It’s never too early to establish a good oral hygiene routine. Bacteria forms in babies’ mouths from sugars in formula or breast milk, before they even get any teeth. Therefore, it is highly recommended to start cleaning their gums and try to introduce good habits from the very beginning. Taking care of your baby’s gums and teeth and teaching them how to brush early on will have lifelong benefits.

One of the best ways to start is to use a finger brush or a clean, damp...

Οι φρονιμίτες είναι τα μεγάλα δόντια που αναπτύσσονται στο πίσω μέρος του στόματος. Στους πιο πολλούς ανθρώπους, ανατέλλουν σε ηλικία μεταξύ 17-27, ενώ σε κάποιους μπορεί να μην υπάρχουν.

 

Η εξαγωγή ενός φρονιμίτη είναι μια από τις πιο συνηθισμένες οδοντιατρικές επεμβάσεις. Εντούτοις, είναι και από τις επεμβάσεις που συνήθως φοβίζουν, με αποτέλεσμα άτομα που πρέπει να τύχουν της απαραίτητης εξαγωγής να το αμελούν συστηματικά. Αποτέλεσμα αυτού, οι φρονιμίτες να τραυματίζουν...

Παρόλο που οι οδηγίες του οδοντιάτρου μας είναι να βουρτσίζουμε τα δόντια μας δύο φορές τη μέρα, να χρησιμοποιούμε καθημερινά οδοντικό νήμα και στοματικό διάλυμα, δεν φαίνεται οι οδοντίατροι να μπορούν να δίνουν σαφείς οδηγίες σε σχέση με το πότε ακριβώς είναι η καλύτερη ώρα για να βουρτσίζουμε!

 

Συνήθως το βούρτσισμα γίνεται σαν μέρος της πρωινής και βραδινής μας ρουτίνας, ενώ κάποιοι βουρτσίζουν τα δόντια τους αμέσως μετά από κάθε γεύμα, αφού είναι σίγουροι ότι αυτό...
