So, you got the itch and its that time in your life when you need to address the way your teeth look; your look after your hair, buy new clothes and that’s great, but they rather become pointless if you are smiling like an old wicked witch. So, through Mulberry dental care, why don’t you treat yourself to a smile make-over and enroll on a complete package, which is what dentists offer these days. First, ensure you have no missing teeth by getting a dental implant, a bridge or even a partial denture fitted. Then address the problem of crooked teeth, by getting a brace fitted and then after all of this, you are ready to begin in earnest. Tooth whitening is very ‘now’ and whether you do it yourself or get it done at the dentists with laser treatment, the results will set you on the road to smiling glory. Of course, bleaching will not cover up cracks, gaps between the teeth and receding gums- but veneers and dental bonding will. Now once you have attained the ultimate Hollywood smile, the topping on the cake might be a little botox around the lips in order to eliminate those crags and crannies to enhance your overall look around the mouth. Now, with all this work finally completed, you as a patient from Sunbury or surrounding areas are ready to set out with a confident smile to complement your hair and clothes.
Bleeding gums can indicate something going terribly wrong in the mouth for patients from Weybridge and adjacent areas, but through Mulberry dental care, the problem can be addressed and thwarted before it gets out of hand. You would normally notice the problem after brushing when there is blood on the toothbrush; hopefully in some cases, this may just be a case of over-zealous brushing that can be rectified by not being so vigorous with your brush action and by opting for a softer brush. Sadly however, in most cases, it will indicate the early signs of gums disease, which is a killer to your teeth and heart in the long run, so it needs to be stopped as quickly as possible. You should seek out advice from your doctor and then change your oral hygiene program. Gums are very delicate but do respond well to stimulation and herbal treatments and massaging helps to get the blood flowing in the gums and rinsing with warm salty water after brushing helps to stop the bleeding. Diet is also an important factor, as a good, strong immune systems help to retain a high level of saliva around the mouth. Lifestyle plays a part too: smoking and excessive drinking play havoc with your gums and so you should at least try to limit your intake. Bleeding gums are easy to rectify, but to stop them re-offending, you need to be on the ball and up the way you look after your teeth and gums on a daily basis.
The temporomandibular joint or the TMJ as it is more commonly referred to, is probably one of the smallest of joints in the body, yet does the most important job too for patients located in Molesey and adjacent areas. It is the joint where the bottom jaw meets the top and though very delicate, it relies on the muscle around it to give it strength. Now if you take just one hour in the day and think about how much just how many times the joint is moved and then you can start to see just how much we use and rely on this joint. We are constantly opening our mouths in some way or other, be it gossiping, eating, chewing gum- all manner of things so this tiny little joint has a lot of expectations and stresses placed upon it during a lifetime. What it doesn’t need is extra stress placed upon it. In sports for example, the jaw is badly exposed to impact, especially contact sports, which is one of the reasons why we wear mouth-guards. But the biggest danger to the TMJ is that of stress, because we may be ignorant of the fact we are grinding our teeth that over time, can cause terrible damage to this joint that will take surgery to overcome. If you need to know about your TMJ, you can get information from Mulberry dental care in the area.
There are a lot of braces to choose from these days, all promising perfect results; some work faster than others, some are designed to do more complex and through Mulberry dental care, patients from Kingston-upon-Thames and adjacent areas can get one that appears to do the lot – the Damon and it truly is a dainty little brace. It consists of a number of frictionless brackets that are held together by a light wire and all anchored at the back of the mouth. What sets it aside from other braces is that the wires are self-tightening so it adjusts itself as the teeth start to move which in the long run means two things: it cuts down the number of visits you have to pay to the dentist and works very fast- a good third faster than most other braces. The Damon is also very versatile and can cope with a range of orthodontic procedures from minor problems like gaps in the teeth, protruding and crooked teeth to more complex work such as crowding and over, under and cross bite. It also eliminates the need to have teeth extracted before the treatment begins (except in extreme cases). Overall, this painless little brace ticks all the boxes in the world of orthodontic treatments on the market today and is probably one of the most versatile around.
By definition, the word phobia means, according to many psychiatric experts, an irrational and excessive fear of an object or situation and a sense of endangerment or a fear of harm, and through Mulberry dental care, that helps people of Surrey, dentists know only too well the problems it causes to them and their patients. As individuals, we often shut out the reasons behind the phobias we have, but they do throw obstacles into our paths that stop us living our lives to the full, let alone getting the dental care we need. The only way to overcome a phobia of going to the dentists is to identify the problem, get it into the open and then bury it for once and all. This may take a lot of counseling to get to the root of the phobia, but dentists are very aware of this and should be your first port of call in order to break up your fears in order to get the oral health care you need. Talking to others is the answer to smashing phobias, it may take time and yes it may be uncomfortable in the beginning, but there is a brilliant philosophy behind this: by conquering your phobia of the dentist and getting the treatments to keep your teeth healthy, will ensure a new level of confidence in yourself to take on anything that life throws at you, and also, give you a fighting chance to address any other phobias you may have lurking inside you.
All those people from Shepperton and neighbouring areas with buck front teeth should prick their ears up and listen because through Mulberry dental care, you can have a device fitted to your mouth that can radically straighten your teeth in as little as 6 weeks…yes, 6 weeks! Imagine, no more standing at the back of photographs with your head tilted, no more talking with hand signals, the Inman aligner can give you the freedom you have craved for and in no time at all!! Sounds hard to believe, but this device comes with a philosophy of its own and with the state of art engineering to go with it- and it’s simple. If the teeth are gently wobbled constantly, they move quite quickly without doing any damage which is what the principle behind the Inman uses and the mechanism does this in a very unique way: a wire wraps around the front of the teeth and connected to a spring; on the inside is a labial bar, also connected to the same spring and so, the wire pulls whilst the bar pushes- hence the teeth are constantly moving. Brilliant, but also, the device is not a fixed one so you can take it out when needed, like when dining out or cleaning your teeth during the day! And just when you thought this miracle device couldn’t get any better, just take a look at the price for what you are getting and you’ll agree that if you fit the bill, this is most certainly the gadget your crooked teeth need to give you the smiling freedom you always dreamed of.
Invisibility is a name you would love to associate with a brace considering the stigma that comes with wearing one, but in fact the dream is here and through Mulberry dental care, you can now find that you can get a fantastic device called Invisalign fitted that will solve all of the orthodontics heartaches of patients from Surbiton and adjoining areas. Surprise! It comes from the professionals of tooth alignment, the Americans who understand the mental problems go through when wearing an aligner. So, they have made one from a transparent plastic that is almost stealth-like in the mouth as you can barely see it. Now that should be reason enough to jump on the Invisalign band wagon…but there’s more. Once you have been fitted up, you will change the aligner as your teeth move and move they do- this device works faster than others that are used for complex and lengthy treatments. Then you have the added bonus that the device is not fixed so it can be removed when required. To see it, if you can, is to be believed and it is rapidly becoming one of the most popular devices for teeth alignment in the country; price, yes, it is more expensive than most other treatments but seriously, who cares, the discretion alone of this device should be enough to want one- it’s invisible!
Mulberry dental care can come up with a lot of answers to problems in your mouth, especially when it comes to getting a ‘fix’ for wayward teeth. You may well consider that the answer could lay in a road-map of metal being placed in your mouth for years and although this method is still used for extreme cases, braces are not that brutal anymore, in fact, they have become very refined. One of the most popular devices available for patients close to Sunbury right now is the 6 months smile because it does what it says it will do in the title. Its ethics are steeped in the old methods of traditional fixed braces whilst combining the influence of modern orthodontic understandings of teeth movement with modern materials. When fitted with this device, each of your teeth that need working on will be fitted with discreetly colored ceramic plates that are linked together by a wire to the anchors at the back of your mouth; these are tightened regularly by your dentist in order to keep the teeth on the move. The delicacy of this device is that it concentrates more on specific teeth that have grown out of kilter and then pull them back into line and of course, the fact that it promises to do it in just 6 months is the reason why this brace is a cut above the others, and price wise, up there with the others too!
No patients from Molesey or nearby areas like tooth loss, as it can looks ugly and is unhealthy for the bite of the mouth as well. It can also cause the face to sag, meaning you will look younger than you are.
Dental implants have all the answers to tooth loss and involve a small titanium spike being implanted into the jaw using pin-point laser surgery. Once you have recovered from the short, healing process, the new tooth is attached to your new implant.
To some people, this can sound like quite an extreme answer to tooth loss but you should take heart from the fact that this has now become a refined and routine procedure to have.
Dental implants not only rejuvenate the look of your mouth by giving you a completely youthful aura to your mouth, but also provide the structure your face needs to keep looking young. Teeth are important to us and dental implants can help us to prolong the look of our smiles.
If you have suffered tooth loss you should get down to your dentist and discuss the possibilities of having dental implant treatment.
