The Snoring Remedies That Really Work

Snoring is fairly common for human beings. Not everyone snores and not all snorers snore every night.  Some snorers are quiet and some are very, very loud. Unfortunately, the snorer is often not disturbed by their own snoring where it typically falls to those affected by sleepless nights lying awake listening to the dull roar next to them,  to seek a solution. In most cases snoring is not considered dangerous although a snorer is wise to seek advice on what it causing louder than usual slumber and whether their nighttime resonance could be a sign of impaired breathing or sleep apnoea.  Both the later conditions affect the health of the snorer and in some cases can be high risk, so are worth checking with your doctor.

Choose a Laser Dentist to Treat Gum Disease

Sydney laser dentistPeriodontal or gum disease can be the result of poor oral health, a genetic predisposition or susceptibility, diabetes, smoking and some medications. It’s an infection of the gum tissue and bone structure that holds the teeth in place. Gum disease usually affects people in their 30s and 40s and if it is not treated you can lose some, if not all of your teeth. Gum disease is also linked to heart disease and stroke and premature birth.

If you have gum disease and have undergone treatment to clean the surfaces of your teeth and the roots that are hidden beneath your swollen gums, you will know that it’s not a very pleasant procedure. Maintenance is the key, but if you have let it slip for any length of time then calculus builds up and you are in for another uncomfortable session in the dentist’s chair.

So for sufferers of gum disease, news of a less invasive treatment that eliminates the need for scraping and drilling is reason to let out a big sigh of relief.

The Safe Way to Whiten Your Teeth

effective teeth whitening methods in Sydney

Everybody notices white teeth. It’s a great way to freshen your appearance and it even takes years off you your appearance and let’s face it,  who doesn’t want to look younger. With white teeth you’re more inclined to smile and a happy face makes for a younger face.

With the advent of hydrogen peroxide formulas, over the counter tooth whitening products became increasingly popular. Toothpastes, whitening kits, and stain removing agents are now widely available in pharmacies and grocery stores. Even though hydrogen peroxide is a highly effective whitening agent, when applied in the form of anti staining toothpastes they don’t do a lot to whiten your teeth and as cleaning agents, they do more damage than good. They often cause tissue burns, tooth sensitivity, and if they’re used with a firm hand or a hard bristled brush, they can affect the enamel on your teeth. And they don’t offer any additional cavity protection.
