How Revolutionary Chewing Gum Could Save Your Dental Implant

September 7, 2017

teeth health dentist smileWhen a dental implant is fitted, occasionally inflammation can develop due to bacteria damaging the tissue and bone around it. Identifying this early is important, to avoid any lasting damage.

Scientists are enveloping special chewing gum which can detect inflammation around an implant. A chemical reaction would take place to create a bitter taste, alerting the patient to inform their dentist.

Until this gum is available, remember the basics:

– Bacteria in the mouth can be reduced by brushing and flossing your teeth daily.

– Visit your dentist regularly to check that your teeth and gums are healthy.

Chewing gum tests are presently under development. Read the full story here:

Key takeaways

– Brush your teeth very gently to keep the area clean

– Eat your food on the opposite side of your mouth

– Dab a little clove oil on the cavity if you are experiencing pain

If your appointment is a few days away you can use sugar-free gum or dental cement as a temporary plug.

“Although it might feel like your tooth is fine at the moment, you need to make a dentist appointment right away.”


Will a Dry Mouth Eventually Lead to Cavities?

teeth, health, smile, dentistWhile a dry mouth might not appear to be serious, this condition can actually damage teeth over time and it may require the help of a dentist. Why is a dry mouth potentially dangerous and what impacts can it have upon oral hygiene?

– A dry mouth allows bacteria to thrive and leads to bad breath.

– Without saliva, it is difficult to wash away food particles that can lead to cavities.

– A dry mouth can erode delicate tooth enamel.

“Dry mouth may appear innocent on the surface, but this condition is much more damaging to teeth than people think.

Your dental health: nature versus nurture

teeth health dentist smileResearch has shown that genetics plays a key role in your dental health.

Key takeaways:

– Genetics determines the shape and size of your teeth and if your parents have cavities and/or gum disease, you may also be at increased risk of developing these problems
– If your parents’ dental health gives you cause for concern, book an appointment with your dentist to discuss your options
– Even if your parents have excellent dental health, you should still look after your teeth as much as possible

“Everyone needs to brush and floss regardless of how healthy their teeth are.”

Smile Makeovers Manchester – Let Us Help You Smile with Confidence

August 14, 2017

Here at Church Road Dental, we’re dedicated to creating confidence by transforming your teeth with our state-of-the-art treatments in smile makeovers. Manchester residents no longer have to feel ashamed of their teeth with our extensive range of cosmetic treatment options.

Rest assured you’ll meet with a private dentist in Manchester, to discuss which cosmetic dental treatments are right for you and what results you’re hoping to achieve. We’ll always outline exactly what happens at each treatment stage and answer any questions you might have on the procedures involved. We’ll help you reach your goal with a combination of treatments, so from tooth whitening to dental implants, Manchester residents are assured of a truly beautiful smile once and for all.

Smile Makeovers Manchester

First, what exactly is a smile makeover?

Unfortunately, many people lack confidence when smiling and are concerned about the negative impact this has on their day-to-day life. That being the case, our smile makeovers in Manchester are a series of cosmetic treatments aimed at improving the shape, colour, and condition of a person’s teeth, the alignment of their jaw and tooth structure, and can also include the replacement of missing teeth.

For each individual, treatments to improve the smile will differ, so the only way to find out for sure what’s involved in changing your smile is by booking an appointment with our private dentist. Manchester residents have nothing to lose by finding out what improvements could be made, as all initial consultations are free!

So what dental problems might a Smile Makeover be recommended for?

Discoloured teeth

If you suffer from stained teeth, whether it’s as a result of age, diet, smoking or other factors, a smile makeover in Manchester can restore your appearance. Teeth whitening improves the colour of stained teeth or if necessary, veneers and crowns may be used.

Alignment issues

 If you’re unhappy with the alignment of your teeth and feel they’re over crowded, then orthodontic brace treatments such as Invisalign or 6 Months Smiles can help improve tooth position and alignment.


If you have gaps in your teeth and you’d prefer to close them, you can choose from a variety of dental cosmetic treatment such as braces, veneers, crowns or dental implants.

Missing teeth

Patients with missing teeth are often ashamed of their smile and this affects their confidence. Our private dentist in Manchester can replace your missing teeth using dental implants or bridges.

Chipped, uneven or cracked teeth

For people with teeth that are uneven, broken, cracked or chipped, their smile can be restored using veneers or crowns in order to drastically change and improve the appearance of their smile.

Tooth Length and proportions

Everyday wear and tear, plus the effects of ageing can detract from a youthful looking appearance. Creating a balanced smile may mean restoring teeth to their proper proportions. To do this we can work together to lengthen or shorten teeth by reshaping them using composite or porcelain veneers.

As you can see, there are many issues that a smile makeover can treat, but let’s take a closer look at three of the most common:

Tooth Whitening

It’s common for our teeth to become stained and discoloured, especially as we age. This is particularly worsened by our modern diets and lifestyles too, such as drinking red wine, coffee and/or smoking.

Whitening your teeth is an easy, quick and effective way to brighten your smile by up to 10 shades. It’s a great non-invasive method to help you feel more confident about your smile by making it look instantly brighter, whiter and fresher. For your convenience, we offer both in-surgery and at-home whitening treatments, so you can choose which best suits your needs.


Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They’re purely cosmetic and are commonly used to fix minor issues with colour, size, length or shape of the teeth. You might be suitable for veneers if your teeth are chipped and broken, worn down, uneven or slightly misaligned.

Porcelain veneers create a polished appearance and are always colour-matched to the rest of your teeth so they look and feel natural. What’s also great is that porcelain veneers are stain resistant, so now you can drink coffee, red wine or tea without having to worry about your teeth

That said, it is worth remembering that a thin layer of enamel must be removed in order to place the veneer, meaning the process can’t be reversed. However, you can rest assured that our private dentist Manchester has been fitting natural looking veneers for many years to help transform our patient’s smiles.

Dental Implants

Many people with dental implants will certainly agree that this dental revolution has transformed their lives. For people with missing teeth, this treatment allows you to have the comfort of natural teeth, meaning you can eat, talk and laugh while no longer feeling ashamed or embarrassed about your teeth.

So what are dental implants exactly?

Implants are titanium posts that replace the root of a tooth and sit below the gum line. They’re surgically inserted into the jaw and quickly begin to fuse with the adjacent bone. Once healed, they can be capped with natural looking crowns, bridges or dentures for a long lasting solution to missing teeth.

With dental implants, Manchester patients soon rediscover the strength, function, and appearance associated with natural teeth.

By combining restorative dentistry and smile makeovers, Manchester patients not only improve their self-image but also the health and integrity of their teeth too. To arrange a consultation with our private dentist in Manchester and discuss your desired results, contact us today on 0161 486 0743. Visit our website for before and after photos on treatments such as veneers, tooth whitening, and dental implants. Our Manchester-based Church Road team look forward to meeting you and transforming your smile.
