Dental Health Week

This year our focus for dental health week is bleeding gums!

Do your gums bleed?

If your gums are bleeding it may be a sign something is happening within your body.

Disease causing bacteria can cause your gums to become inflamed, you may develop a form of gum disease if you ignore these symptoms.

Dental health week is focusing on women’s dental health and hormonal fluctuation experienced during puberty, pregnancy, menstruation and menopause.

The team at Clare Dental will be happy to educate patients and advise how their teeth and gums are affected during these phases of a females life.

Our team at Clare Dental aim to educate patients from an early age to brush, floss and have regular dental visits to help maintain a healthy mouth for life.

In supporting Women’s Oral Health we have 100 pamper packs for our female patients.

CDBS

On the 23rd April 2016, the Australian Government announced its intention to close the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) from 1 July 2016. As the legislation was not passed by Parliament before the Government entered into caretaker arrangements on 9 May 2016, the CDBS remains open.

Contact us and we would be happy to help you or visit the myGov website at my.gov.au for more information on your CDBS eligibility and available balance.

Cancer Given The Brush-Off

From childhood we are told to brush our teeth twice a day to avoid the misery of painful cavities and rotting teeth.

Now research suggests cleaning our teeth properly may also help ward off particularly vicious form of cancer.

Scientists have discovered that pancreatic cancer is linked to two types of bacteria also known to cause gum disease.

A team in the US found that people who had these bugs in their mouths were up to twice as likely to develop pancreatic cancer over the next decade.

The scientists said the findings offered an “accessible” means to prevent the disease. It could help people reduce cancer risk, and give doctors a cheap and easy way to screen for the disease, they said.
