WOULD YOU LIKE WHITER TEETH?
One of the most common remarks by our patients is:
“I WISH MY TEETH WERE WHITER!”
Well it is now possible to whiten teeth without having to prepare them in any way.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Impressions of your teeth are taken and an accurately fitting tray, similar to a small gum shield, is made for each jaw. You are then given syringes of the special bleaching gel to use in the tray at home.
We advise using the trays nightly for approximately 2 weeks.
Give the practice a call and we can answer any questions you may have.
BOTOX AND DERMAL FILLERS AVAILABLE
WHAT IS IT?
Botulinum A toxin is a freeze dried, vacuum stored, purified protein which temporarily relaxes the muscles (around 2-6 months on average with wide variations between individuals). It trims off receptors that usually help pass the message from the nerve to the muscle. This can reduce lines or wrinkles the muscle can cause. The receptor regenerates in 2-6 months when the treatment "wears off"
Please contact the practice and we will be happy to give you more information and book you in for a consultation.
Erosion is the loss of tooth tissue due to acids. This may occur due to eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia. However, it is most often due to frequent intake of fizzy drinks and fruit juices. We are seeing more and more children and young adults with clear signs of erosion. This can be just as serious as tooth decay or gun disease. The new 'diet' drinks and sugar free juices can be just as harmful to teeth as sugar - containing drinks. If you are concerned about this aspect of your children's or your own diet please ask us for more information.
If you or your child plays contact sports (rugby, football, hockey, martial arts, squash, boxing, cricket, etc) then they are at risk of damaging their teeth.
Professional players know the risks and always wear a mouthguard to protect their teeth. Children rarely do, and we often see damaged teeth caused by injuries on the playing field.
Made to measure mouthguards are available; why not ask for details on your next visit.
More teeth are lost through gum disease than tooth decay?
More teeth are lost through gum disease than tooth decay. Most people know that one way to prevent decay is to avoid sugary food and drink. However, very few are aware that gum disease can also be prevented. Gum disease is rarely painful, and for most people the only indication is bleeding gums, especially when brushing. In later stages teeth become loose and eventually fall out or have to be taken out. Prevention is not just about regular scaling and polishing. At this practice, prevention starts with awareness, showing children the correct brushing techniques, the monitoring every adult patient with natural teeth. From this we can detect any problems with the gums at a very early stage, allowing us to spend the time giving appropriate advice to cure gum disease and help prevent further problems.
Remember... prevention is better than cure!
Mouth Cancer Awareness
On average, four people in the UK die every day from mouth cancer. Many of these deaths could be prevented. Early detection is the key. When you have a dental health examination here you will notice that we don't just look at your teeth. We look at your jaws and joints, your tongue and underneath it, your gums, all around your mouth including your cheeks, hard and soft palate and tonsils. If anything unusual is spotted then we can arrange the appropriate tests. With early treatment there is an excellent chance of a cure. This is one reason why even people who have no natural teeth should have their dental health reviewed at least once a year.
