When asked for some hot tips, the Duxton Dental team shared some inspiration: Hygienist Megan is an advocate of eating a well-balanced diet, low in sugar and refined carbohydrates.
The dental benefit is a reciprocal relationship. If you eat well you will have healthy teeth and gums; if you have healthy teeth and gums you will eat well and enjoy a variety of foods through your whole life without dentures. Dr Rhonda Gooding shared the knowledge that poor oral health has been linked to heart disease, clogged arteries, strokes and pregnancy complications. She says the mouth is a window to the rest of your body and can help detect early signs of systemic diseases, e.g. mouth ulcers are a symptom of coeliac and crohns disease or nutritional deficiencies. Taking care of your oral health is an investment in your overall health.
Hygienist, Micayela thinks great looking teeth need great looking gums. She suggests regular hygienist care to remove stains and tartar in conjunction with brushing twice a day and flossing every night. Recent research out of America proves that every $1 spent on dental prevention (such as hygiene visits) saves $8-$50 on dental treatment long term.

There has been an exciting development at Duxton Dental to give you a spring in your step and a smile on your face this summer.
Dentists Christine Duxbury and Hayley Hall have both been extensively trained in the use of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) as a muscle relaxant that can be used reliably for both dental and cosmetic indications. Traditionally, lines between the eyes (frown lines), on the forehead and around the eyes (crows’ feet) have been the most commonly treated for cosmetic reasons. However, the number of new uses for these facial injectables has expanded substantially and now includes other areas of direct importance for dentists. Chronic tooth grinding, headaches and smile issues, due to undesired muscle overactivity, can be treated simply and non-invasively through the use of Botox.
It is interesting to know that worldwide, dentists are the providers of choice for treatments with Botox – it makes sense when you think about their day-to-day work and facial anatomy knowledge. Training and experience has shown Hayley and Christine that they can provide natural looking results, using a combination of skin rejuvenation and facial injectables such as Botox. Duxton Dental is also fortunate to have a qualified beauty therapist on staff.
The goal at Duxton Dental is not about making someone look completely different or 20 years younger, but as one of their patients says, “It is about making them look like they have had a fantastic holiday”.
