The lowdown on pulling teeth (the official way)

It’s an old saying, but if we get into the serious nature of pulling teeth there are some interesting views to read. As you might expect, this isn’t a two-minute procedure. There’s a whole host of information to dissect and whether you go to Limerick dentists or ones at the other side of the country, the advice stays the same. We’ll now take a look at how you should approach pulling teeth and what you need to take into account to make it as painless as possible. Who may require a tooth extraction? While most people are under the assumption that a tooth extraction should only be carried out if you have suffered some damage in your mouth, this isn’t necessarily the case. In truth, the options are endless and we could pen a dissertation mulling over each of them. To give something of an idea of how varied the reasons might be, you might require an extraction if you are receiving radiation to your head or neck area and there are teeth which have blocked the field of radiation. Alternatively, someone suffering from cancer has more chance of developing infected teeth due to the drugs that are used and […]

Putting a shine on it: Teeth whitening options broken down

It’s something that was once reserved for the rich and famous, but teeth whitening has become something that has become completely accessible to the masses. It’s something that’s offered in pretty much every dental practice in the country; whether you turn to an orthodontist Farnham has, or a practitioner in another part of the country. However, while it has become more open than ever before, it still ‘feels’ complicated to a lot of people. Realising the difference between the various at-home treatments, compared to the dentist’s chair, is something that is vital if you are looking to reap the whitest results. Following on from the above, let’s take a look at all of the teeth whitening options in detail. Professional in-office whitening Let’s start with the most extreme form of whitening; although we use the term ‘extreme’ very lightly nowadays. Sure, in-office whitening might yield the best results, but as we’ve already discussed it’s a very straightforward procedure that dentists are now used to carrying out on a daily basis. The benefit of this option in comparison to some of the others we’ll look at is the strength of the substances that your dentist will use. They are able to […]

Making a bite: The problems behind dental occlusion analysed

It’s a phrase that’s probably not an everyday term, but dental occlusion is something that affects a surprising amount of people. To put it in simple terms, it refers to the process where your teeth don’t fit together properly – your ‘bite’ just isn’t ‘right’. Fortunately, this is a condition which can be treated relatively simply. While a dentist will usually have to be spoken to first, there are occasions where something as simple as altering your diet can resolve the problem relatively quickly. As you might imagine, it’s a problem which can be caused by multiple issues. Speak to any Reading orthodontist and they would real off several possible reasons, as we take a look at four of the most common to get to the bottom of your bad bite. Cause #1 – Your teeth Unsurprisingly, there’s every chance that it’s just your teeth which are causing the problem. In short, those teeth which are out of line will naturally not come together properly – although there are other teeth-related problems. For example, those people who tend to have frequent toothache are unlikely to have a perfect bite, while anyone who has experienced multiple fillings or loose crowns is […]

Keeping little teeth clean: It all starts with the toothpaste

Few parents will disagree; teaching your child to brush their teeth on a consistent basis is easier said than done. On most occasions there will be tears, tantrums and everything else involved in avoiding the habit. In simple terms, it’s just something that a little person doesn’t want to do. While we could mull over all of the techniques to make the “convincing process” easier, we’ll leave that to the parenting experts. Instead, we’re going to look at the role of toothpaste and how this is crucially important in developing young teeth. Sure, the previous sentence may sound obvious, but some of the facts regarding infant toothpaste aren’t well-documented yet can make life of the parent easier. It’s something that the children’s dentist Great Portland Street, London would back up and that in itself highlights just how this information simply must be taken into account. Let’s now take a look at some of these toothpaste-tips for young children. There’s no such thing as a “children’s toothpaste brand” Let’s get one of the common misconceptions out of the way first, there’s no such thing as a “children’s toothpaste brand.” In fact, while we aren’t going to name any names, there are […]

Clean eating: Your teeth are what you eat

It’s something of a cliché, but when it comes to your teeth few would disagree with the notion that “you are what you eat”. While a solid dental routine is obviously going to cover you, if you can couple this with a diet that isn’t going to wreak havoc for your teeth then you’re onto a winner. For children, who are seemingly more susceptible to problems, this is even more crucial. This Children’s dentist in Meath has highlighted how important eating the right foods can be for infants and we have therefore created the following guide. Of course, it’s going to be relevant for any adult who wants to take care of their teeth as well. Rather than concentrate on all of the sugary foods which are renowned to be detrimental to your teeth, we’ll instead take a look at some of the foods which can actually benefit you from a dental point of view. Here goes. Carrots The old saying might be that carrots make you see in the dark, but you shouldn’t forget their power in relation to your teeth as well. While the fibre-factor with carrots is obviously important, the very fact that they are crunchy can […]
