Phobia Of The Dentist

January 9, 2011

Most people dislike coming to the dentist. For some it is a full blown phobia where even the smell of the dentist can set off a reaction. Phobias are usually stemmed from a bad experience, most times in childhood, and often this can be where the fear of the dentist can come from. There are many different types of phobia but Dentophobia (fear of the dentist) can be one of the most intense and persistent.

At Church Road Dental in Cheadle Hulme, we have a full understanding of how debilitating a fear of the dentist can be. This is why we have stepped away from the usual dental waiting room and created a warm and comfortable place to welcome you and put you at ease as soon as you arrive. Our staff members Natalie, Sue and Brittany will listen and answer any questions and allay any fears you may have. Our Dentist Dr Shi Karim is known for his gentle manner and also specialises in nervous and phobic patients. We are proud to say we have helped many many patients overcome their fears and turn their lives around with brand new smiles!

We have helped people from far and wide, not just the Manchester area so don’t hesitate to call we are always here to help. 0161-486-0743

Top tips for your teeth this Christmas!

December 12, 2010

Christmas is a great family celebration and most people go all-out when it comes to sweet treats and nibbles. We all like to indulge a bit at Christmas, but which foods will do the most damage to our teeth?

1) Mince Pies

We all love a Mince Pie or two at Christmas but its worth bearing in mind that the filling is packed full of sugar so best to keep these delights to a minimum.

2) Boxes of Chocolates

Most people go mad for chocolate at Christmas and a lot of house holds end up with huge family sized boxes of chocolate treats! These are undoubtedly popular but also high in sugar (and fat) and should be an occasional treat.

3 ) Fizzy drinks

Most households stock up on fizzy drinks at Christmas time; the full-fat versions are full of sugar so if you’re worried about your teeth try to go for sugar free, diet versions. Fizzy drinks are a major contributor to tooth erosion, which is a chemical process that attacks and wears down enamel.

4) Christmas cake

Christmas cake is an age-old tradition and many families will have a cake to go with their turkey this year. Covered in thick frosty white icing and marzipan, Christmas cake is full of sugar and remains a firm festive favourite

5) Chocolate advent calendars

Advent calenders get the Christmas festivities off to a start at the beginning of December; most calendars only contain a small individual chocolate for each day of Advent so this won’t cause too much damage, unless you supplement your daily intake with a load of other sweet treats you should be OK!

Other tips to follow to look after your teeth this Christmas unclude…

  • Keep a spare toothbrush in your handbag or desk at work for after treats passed round the office or workplace

  • After eating sugary or acidic foods or drinks, leave it an hour before brushing as this is when your mouths PH has returned to normal and it is safe to brush

  • To speed up the process of your mouth returning to a neutral PH  chew sugar free gum

  • Use a straw to drink fizzy drinks or bubbly Champagne or stick to still drinks as much as possible

  • Try not to snack a lot, leave an hour at least between each snack

  • Always brush your teeth before going to bed as bacteria work on your teeth during the night

We at Church Road Dental and Cosmetic wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy new Year and remember keep smiling!
