General Dental FAQs
Will dental treatment hurt?
At Luxe Dental we use modern techniques to minimise discomfort and, with the recent advances in dental procedures, local anaesthesia and sedatives, dental treatment can be considered to be pain free. You may experience some discomfort during or following your treatment but we always take every precaution to reduce this to a minimum and will explain to you what you can expect to feel during and after any treatment.
What is gum disease? Could I have it?
You may get bleeding of the gums, or some swelling, or soreness. If you see blood on your toothbrush or in the rinsing water when you clean your teeth, this might be a sign of gum disease. You may get bad breath.
Most people suffer at some time in their life from some form of gum disease and it is the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Smoking can also make gum disease worse because, if you smoke, the gums are more likely to get inflamed.
