Teeth whitening has become very popular over the last decade – who doesn’t want to flash a sparkling smile?
While dentists have offered professional teeth-whitening procedures for many years, the DIY market has grown rapidly. In store and online there are a huge range of products, from bleaches to charcoal pastes, all promising pearly-white results.
Dr Oscar Buse has recently begun work as lead dentist at National Dental Care Buddina. Dr Buse, an experienced senior dentist, moved to the area with his family following several years in Melbourne.
“I’ve done extensive training in these areas. I love to get to know each new patient and what they’d like to achieve. Then we discuss what the solutions could be and what their budget is. I like to see their smile when the work is completed.”
Once your children are in high school it’s trickier to keep an eye on their daily habits, but you still need to encourage them to take good care of their teeth.
Teenagers have busier lives – healthy eating and regular brushing can slip off their radar, especially when they need more sleep.
There are also a range of new dental issues to deal with, aside from concerns about appearances.
Dental issues are now the number one reason for children to be hospitalised in NSW, according to the latest NSW Health data. Sadly, many children need to go under general anaesthetic to have rotten teeth extracted and the numbers are increasing each year.

When juggling work and family responsibilities, it’s easy for your child’s oral health to be overlooked. But just because children don’t complain about dental pain, it doesn’t mean their teeth are fine.
Caring for your children’s teeth starts way before they can start brushing themselves. Once that first baby tooth appears, it’s time to include oral hygiene in their routine.
Your children’s first teeth are important for the health of their adult teeth. And the routines you create around tooth brushing, help them develop the right habits as they grow older.
When life is hectic and there are late nights, good routines can go sidetracked. Sometimes you have the suspicion your breath isn’t the freshest. But it’s a busy time.
Then one morning you’re cleaning your teeth and you notice your tongue isn’t pink any more. It’s white.
What does this mean? Is it serious?
This year’s Dental Health Week asks how your oral health is tracking. A white tongue may mean you need to up your oral health game.
