Background

Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including bats, cats, camels and cattle. Rarely, coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), and now with 2019-nCoV (Covid – 19). Covid-19 was first reported in Wuhan city in China in December 2019. Symptoms range from a mild cough to pneumonia. Most people recover easily though some get very sick very quickly. Good hygiene can prevent its spread.

Most often, spread from person-to-person happens among close contacts (about 6 feet). Person-to-person spread is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. A person may get infected with Coronavirus if a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touches their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

The new bad breath clinic in North Brisbane offers a unique and effective scientific approach to halitosis (bad breath) treatment. For anyone who suffers from bad breath and has struggled to get answers, professional, personalised treatment is the key to overcoming this debilitating social problem.

Get your bad breath tested and measured

We’ve all had bad breath at some point. Or, at least, we’ve worried we might have it, or been around people who most certainly have had a severe case of it. It’s a significant cause of social anxiety and severe halitosis has even been known to hamper career advancement.  But how do you really know how bad your breath is?

It’s hard to rely on friends and loved ones who might lie or downplay the problem to prevent hurt feelings. Enter the Oral Chroma bad breath analyser, star of the bad breath clinic in Brisbane! It’s 100 times more sensitive than the human nose at detecting and measuring bad breath, and tells the truth, allowing your dentist to devise a specialised, individual program to tackle the problem at its source.

Every December we start to make New Year’s resolutions and a lot of the times those resolutions revolve around improving our overall health. So why not this time make a new year’s resolution that improves your oral and dental health. You will be surprised to see how much it can improve your general health and well-being. Here are some tips from dentists at Sandgate Bayside Dental.

Develop some good habits

Do you brush your teeth well at least twice a day, for at least two minutes each time? Do you floss between your teeth every time you brush your teeth? Do you visit your dentist for a check-up and a scale and clean every 6 months. Not following this regime can leave harmful bacteria sitting around your teeth causing serious damage to your teeth and your smile. This could have a lasting impact on your teeth and your confidence. So make sure you get into the good habits of maintaining your oral and dental health in 2020.

We get two sets of teeth, baby teeth and adult teeth. We lose our baby teeth by the age of around 11-14 years of age and those teeth are replaced by adult teeth. After that age if we lose a tooth we don’t get a new one.

Interesting fact – About 90% of all tooth loss is due to dental decay and gum disease and both those problems are preventable or controllable for most part. So visiting your dentist regularly can help you prevent both these problems and in turn saves you from losing your teeth.

How often should you visit your dentist? A very common question asked by many people. According to Australian Dental Association (ADA) you should visit your dentist every 6 months though after few visits to your dentist this interval may be varied. “You should have a dental check-up every 6 months, but some people may not need to go so often and others may need more frequent checks” NHS, UK.
