General Dentistry seeks to repair oral conditions, helping you to maintain beautiful healthy teeth for life. Within our practice we use General Dentistry techniques to regain your sense of overall well-being and prevent further deterioration of your teeth.
General Dentistry is essential for patients suffering oral conditions, as it enables these problems to be resolved and for patients to regain their overall well-being. Our aim is to bring your mouth to its ultimate healthy state and maintain this condition for the rest of your life.
Good dental hygiene and health is fundamental in achieving general well-being. Investigations show, inadequate oral health can be connected with several serious conditions. Heart Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, Respiratory Disease as well as an increased risk of stroke; are all heightened in risk if the patient also suffers from poor oral health. Therefore, teeth play an important role in our overall health and should not be overlooked.
A healthy, fresh appearance and smell within the mouth are the results of good dental health. Correct brushing is fundamental in the maintenance of teeth and gums. Our experienced dental hygienist (Preethi de Silva) will help you to maximize the health of your gums. Speak with Dr Manani or Preethi de Silva at your next dental appointment for the best way to brush your teeth. Cleaning between teeth is equally important. Flossing once daily is the quickest and most effective way to prevent decay. For more tips on helping you to achieve good dental health, please visit the Preventive Dentistry area of our website.
We also recommend visiting us on a sixth monthly basis for a thorough examination and clean. During these appointment times we will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums.
Snoring Solutions in Manuka, Canberra Do you or your partner snore?
Over 3.8 million Australians snore. Snoring disturbs the sleep of both the sufferer and their partner. At Smile Sensations we understand the strain snoring can place on your relationship.
Good sleep is essential to a happy and healthy lifestyle. However, snoring can also be an indicator of an underlying condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (often referred to as OSA).
People with untreated OSA are far more likely to suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease or stroke.
Snoring and mild OSA can now be simply and effectively treated. At Smile Sensations we utilise the SomnoMed MAS treatment. MAS is an abbreviation for a Mandibular Advancement Splint. This is a dental device resembling a custom fitted mouth guard. It is worn only during sleep and is comfortable and unobtrusive to wear. It also does not limit the patient’s ability to open or close their mouth, yawn or speak.
The SomnoMed MAS has proven highly successful in extensive research and clinical studies.
