The Importance of Oral Care When You are Sick

December 3, 2020

When you fall ill, there’s a tendency to neglect your usual dental habits. But this may lead to complications in the future. 

The good news is that there are a handful of simple steps which can help to ensure that the health of your mouth is not in jeopardy even if you are sick. 

Let us therefore take a look at three suggestions:

–   Brush and floss your teeth as you normally would when feeling normal.

–   If you happen to vomit, thoroughly rinse your mouth immediately after to eliminate any residual acids.

–   Drink plenty of water in order to promote the production of saliva.

“Brushing and flossing your teeth will remove oral bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease, not to mention give you fresher breath.”

Composite Veneers- an alternative to porcelain

December 3, 2020

Composite veneers, also known as ‘same day veneers’, are a less invasive way to restore your smile. If you have worn, chipped or damaged teeth then composite resin can be sculpted directly onto the teeth to produce beautiful, lifelike results. See here for information on how we deal with chipped or damaged teethhttps://www.cheadlehulmedental.com/treatment/chipped-and-broken-tooth-repair-manchester.html

What are composite veneers?

Composite veneers are a conservative alternative to porcelain and are made from translucent resin that is carefully sculpted and hardened by your dentist in a single appointment. Composite veneers work just like porcelain veneers. You can use one on any tooth that you could otherwise get a porcelain veneer on. It’s a cosmetic treatment that primarily enhances the look of front teeth. You can get just one veneer or several to make your smile look better and give your confidence a huge boost. More information about composite veneers can be found here https://theteethblog.com/

Composite versus porcelain?

Composite is more versatile than porcelain, lasts 5-7 years and is much less expensive at around £200-£400 per tooth, compared with £650-950 per tooth for porcelain. Also, they are the fastest type of dental veneer and can be done in one appointment. They are less invasive than the traditional veneer as there is no need to grind down healthy teeth to dramatically improve the smile. They are also much easier to repair and maintain.

However, it is more difficult to get as natural a finish as with porcelain veneers and they are more susceptible to damage. In addition, they are just as prone to staining as your natural teeth are, where as porcelain ones are not. For more information about porcelain veneers, follow this link https://www.cheadlehulmedental.com/treatment/dental-veneers-manchester.html

We offer many different types of veneers here at the practice so why not make a free appointment with our smile advisor to discuss the best treatment option for you?

Bottlemouth Syndrome Explained

December 2, 2020

Bottlemouth syndrome, also called baby bottle tooth decay, is a form of tooth decay which is caused by overexposing developing teeth to sugar. Most often the condition affects the front teeth but it can also be detrimental to any of a child’s teeth. 

Early tooth decay occurs when drinking acidic drinks from a bottle which focuses acids on the tooth enamel. The weakened or damaged tooth enamel becomes vulnerable to harmful bacteria which can lead to tooth infections, cavities and decay. 

Feeding by bottle is often necessary — but should be carefully regulated as tots most at risk are those who:

–   Suck on a bottle excessively

–   Take the bottle to bed for naps or during sleep

–   Use the bottle as a pacifier or soother

It is quite common for babies to have juice, milk, formula or soda in their bottle, but these are acidic drinks. Parents should only use a bottle at feeding times and for the minimum period of time required to finish the drink. 

Symptoms of bottlemouth include sensitivity or pain. However, a parent may not detect these symptoms. This is why a child’s dental development should be monitored regularly by a dentist.

Dentists Accepting New Patients

November 30, 2020

During this difficult time, it is hard to find dentists accepting new patients. Due to the regulations that are in place currently a lot of dental practices, particularly NHS ones are finding it difficult to work as sufficiently as before whilst adhering to the new way of working. Therefore there is either a backlog of patients, or these practices are only able to offer emergency treatment. In these practices it is not possible for the dentists to accept new patients.

We are accepting new patients

Here at Church Road we are in a good position and are one of the few practices in the area where our dentists are accepting new patients. We are fully operational and able to offer our full range of treatments.

Check-ups and hygiene appointments for new patients

This is a most difficult and unprecedented time for us all, but we still need to make sure our oral health is a priority. It is essential to maintain regular check-ups and hygiene visits during this time, both of which we can offer here whenever you need. See this page for further information about these visits; https://www.cheadlehulmedental.com/treatment/dental-hygiene-and-therapy.html. These visits are not only essential to maintain the health of your teeth, but also provide a time for the dentist to perform an oral cancer screening check. This is vital for spotting the early signs of oral cancer, so are another reason why these visits shouldn’t be missed during this time. For further information about oral cancer screening, visit this page; https://www.cheadlehulmedental.com/treatment/general-dentistry-manchester.html.

What Are The Main Causes Of Tooth Loss?

November 26, 2020

Our teeth are naturally sturdy and meant to stay in place for life, but there are certain situations that can result in lost or missing teeth. For example, suffering an accident or trauma to the mouth are common causes behind tooth loss among people of all ages. But there are other things that can contribute to this problem.

Key takeaways:

–   Unhealthy habits like smoking, which raises the risk of oral infection, gum disease, and tooth decay.

–   Poor oral hygiene, as this can lead to cavities and infection. If these go untreated, you may end up needing an extraction.

–   Gum disease, which causes swelling, and this can make your teeth loosen. 

The best way to prevent tooth loss is to be proactive and have your teeth and gums professionally cleaned and checked by a dentist. This can help detect problems before it’s too late. So don’t skip your next dental appointment! The health of your teeth is at stake.
