Why Do I Keep Getting Dental Problems

*At Hawthorn Smiles Dental, we pride ourselves in being an excellent problem solver. No problem is ever too difficult for us to solve and we pride ourselves on delivering simple, pain free, predictable and proven outcomes you can see before treatment. We are committed to solving your dental problems – big or small.

How and why do dental problems occur?

Many of our patients come to us with very complex problems. These include widespread gum disease and teeth decay. While some of the diseases in the mouth are preventable (such as decay can be prevented by good brushing and cleaning), there are cases where diseases set in through no fault of their own.

There are four main reasons why dental problems keep recurring:

Lack of Knowledge about Oral Hygiene and Care

Having not been exposed to good oral hygiene or good care, limited visits to the dentist and past traumatic dental experiences as a child, often lead to poor oral hygiene and lack of knowledge of proper care. Childhood years are the most formative years and where children form lifelong habits. It is often difficult to change bad habits formed as a child. Over time their teeth may gradually deteriorate and mouth diseases start to form, increasing the likelihood of additional mouth problems such as gum disease, dental decay, tooth infection and losing teeth. Dental Boutique welcomes patients who have suffered from long-term problems with their oral health and adverse effects from not visiting the dentist. Be assured that together, we can help you overcome these problems.

Dental Anxiety and Fear

Most dental phobia is caused by a traumatic past dental experience. Bad dental experience may not necessary be a physical experience such as painful needle injections or bad gag reflex. It can also be a psychological experience such as the feeling of loss of control when lying in the dental chair, feeling worried of being humiliated or judged by the treating dentist or the feeling of disappointment with past dental work. Dental anxiety can be exacerbated by external factors such as noise from the dental equipment, and the smell of the dental clinic. These experiences could prevent patients actually visiting the dentist and avoid it at all costs.

This is why at Hawthorn Smiles Dental we pride ourselves in ensuring our patients not only have a great result, but also that we offer our patients with a number of virtually pain free options to ensure a comfortable, virtually pain-free and anxiety free journey.

We have helped a lot of patients overcome dental anxiety and fear and with our team of highly trained and qualified dentists who have a special interest in treating anxious patients. We have transformed many formerly anxious patients who now feel at the ease while visiting us.

Genetics

A lot of diseases that we know have very close link to genes, and one of them is gum disease. We all know and have heard of people losing teeth although they have been getting cleans done and visiting their dentist regularly. More often than not, these patients would have siblings or parents who are experiencing the same thing. It’s very similar to hair loss. People with hair loss do not necessarily neglect their hair hygiene which includes shampooing and conditioning. However, they keep losing hair no matter what they do, just like how some patients lose teeth because of a genetic trait.

Medically Compromised Patients

Patients that are medically compromised are more likely to have mouth diseases and dental problems, as there is a very close link between the health of the body and health of the mouth. We see a lot more breakdown in the mouth in medically compromised patients as they have higher intake of medications and treatment that have an effect on the mouth.

It is tempting to put off going to the dentist, however problems only get worse over time if not addressed when they arise. It’s the old adage, prevention is better than a cure. Let’s move forward and not look at the past.

I Am Anxious About the Dentist

Does the thought of sitting in a dental chair give you anxiety? Sounds of the dental drill make your palms sweat? If so – you are not alone.

Many of our patients have told us, that visiting the dentist can be scary for a number of reasons. Dental fear is something we hear often and prevents patients from visiting the dentist for years and achieving their goals, be it a functional or cosmetic goal. One bad experience at a dentist due to a painful experience, being reprimanded or judged or not being listened to can be causes of anxiety.

This is why at Hawthorn Smiles Dental we pride ourselves in ensuring our patients not only have a great result, but have a comfortable, virtually pain-free and anxiety free journey.

I Am Unhappy With Old Cosmetic Work

Have you had cosmetic work done and are still unhappy with your smile?

Many of our clients visit Hawthorn Smiles Dental to have their past cosmetic work redone as they were not completely happy with the result. This can often cause a lot of stress and anxiety in patients as they have invested time, money and emotion in the past treatment. Most of this could have been avoided if the cosmetic dentistry were done well in the first time.

Outstanding cosmetic work involves talent, artistry and experience of the cosmetic dentist, dental ceramist and the team. When cosmetic work is carried out correctly, the result should be a beautiful and natural-looking smile. At Dental Boutique, we have a strict protocol from smile design and proper planning and trial every smile before even starting treatment. This will ensure the cosmetic dentist and the client is on the same page with regards to what a “beautiful” smile looks like.

We are trained in smile makeovers and use advanced technology to create predictable 3D smile design photos and videos personalised for you to help you envision what your smile will look like even before starting treatment.

At this stage, the patient is able to give us as much feedback as possible before creating the final porcelain. We also go the extra mile to help you fall in love with your smile.

Straighten Teeth Without Braces

Many people talk to us about their worries when considering straightening their teeth. Quite often people’s reasons for not wanting metal braces include:

  • “I am too old for metal brackets on my teeth.”
  • “My job requires me to meet with a lot of people, and I cannot appear unprofessional.”
  • “It looks uncomfortable and unsightly.”
  • “I heard it that it is difficult to eat with and to clean.”

Luckily there is a treatment option available for many patients that straightens their teeth and addresses the above concerns.
