Some cosmetic dental treatments can actually sound quite squeamish but if you want to rid yourself of issues that have bothered you for years, you will have to opt for the pain to get the gain. However, in reality many procedures are considered almost pain-free these days, thanks to the glory that is laser surgery and one treatment that has benefited incredibly from this is gum contouring. Excessive gums can look rather unsightly and can make your feel uncomfortable and self-conscious when you smile. But if you go for this treatment, you can revolutionise the way you smile in just a mere 30 minutes. Once you have been given a local anaesthetic to numb the gums, the laser will cut away the excess tissue from the main teeth that show that ‘gummy’ smile. Half an hour later, you are done, though in some cases, a return visit may be required for further cosmetic treatments such as veneers or dental bonding to protect the new exposed areas of your teeth. In the following days, there may be some discomfort, but this can be overcome with painkillers and as long as you use a medicated mouthwash, healing will be quick. If you want to know more about this in Molesey, try contacting Mulberry Dental. Though they are based in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey, they do serve the area and are always willing to give out advice on anything dental.

Most conditions in the mouth are quite easily treated by dentists today with easy, yet wonderful treatments at their disposal; bad breath however, isn’t so easy to overcome and it may take a complete turn around in lifestyle and attitude to battle against this problem. Sure, a dentist can treat the problem of tooth decay and gum disease- two of the biggest sponsors of bad breath, but you really need to think about how you allowed these conditions to develop in your mouth in the first place and the answer is quite simple- poor oral hygiene. Again, this also allows odours to build up in the mouth around your teeth and tongue and produce foul odours. If you smoke, drink and have a poor diet as well, then you really are pushing out the odour boat. A hygienist is the best person to talk to about turning all of this around and getting your breath fresh again. It won’t be easy, but if you work hard at it, it is achievable. It will also help you to avoid more sinister things from happening in the future, like oral cancer and complete tooth loss. For more information on bad breath and the dangers that come with it, then contact Mulberry dental down in Walton-on-Thames if you or indeed someone you know are having problems, as they serve the Surbiton area.

Whenever you pass by or have to visit a dentist, does it bring out an unattractive colour in you? Do your palms start to break out in a sweat and you start to feel uncertain on your feet? Then if this and more are true, chances are you are a nervous patient whenever it comes to anything dental and though you may well struggle to turn up for appointments and yet still do, it isn’t going to be a pleasant experience for you. The reasons can be many, but if you want to try and conquer this problem, you will have to try and confront your dentist about what it is that bothers you so much. Talking is always a tonic, but talking to a dentist can be highly beneficial to you. Firstly, you are talking to your Nemesis about what cruelty has been done to you and others in the dentists chair over the years. Then, once you have let off steam, let the dentist have a say about how treatments have improved and how nasty things aren’t painful anymore, and how you can be sedated if need be for comfort. Now it’s back to you to make a decision on what you want and how you want happen. Finally, allow the dentist to do this to your instructions! It sounds simple, yet it is a real problem that you and your dentist have to go through. If you want to know more about this in Surrey and other related problems, then nip along to Mulberry Dental in Walton-on-Thames for a one-to-one chat.

Like Halley’s Comet, something comes along once in your life time that captures the imagination and in orthodontic circles, that comet is the Inman aligner. The similarities don’t just stop there either, because both move pretty quickly as well and it is just possible that this aligner will be around for a good 75 years too! The thing that makes the Inman so special is the way it is designed and the way it works to get the front teeth of the mouth straightened. The mechanism is made up of springs, a wire and a bar attached to a plate and once it is set into the mouth, all of these elements in the design set about rocking the teeth until they become loosened, after which, the teeth move like a comet into position, possibly within 6 weeks of you starting the treatment. Now, this is unheard of with other devices, but it does mean that it is necessary for a retainer to be worn from time to time to prevent the teeth bouncing back to where they came from. Throughout the process, the aligner can also be taken out, so oral hygiene is never compromised. If you still can’t believe that teeth can be straightened like this, then just give the people over at Mulberry Dental in Walton Surrey a call, seeing as they serve the area of Shepperton, they can tell you all you need to know about the fantastic Inman.

Beauty and discretion aren’t normally words that are associated with the world of orthodontics and the way teeth are straightened, but then, the world has never been quite prepared for something like Invisalign. This is a system which works like no other and once you have decided on it, it will get your teeth into shape in a way people could only dream of in years gone by. Two of its major qualities are that it is a clear and removable aligner and you will wear many different ones throughout your treatment as your teeth start shifting. It is made from a completely transparent plastic means that it will be invisible to others around you so this reduces the chance of you being childishly ridiculed throughout the time it takes to work. The fact that you can take it out means that you can carry out a normal oral hygiene programme as well. The other major plus to Invisalign is the time it takes to work: on average, it can work anywhere up to 18 months, although there are variations on the theme of this aligner that have been developed to work as quickly as 6 months! For more information about Invisalign, you would be wise to call Mulberry Dental in Walton-upon-Thames, for they serve the town of Surbiton.

If you have no option but to have a brace fitted in order to get your teeth straightened, then don’t take the first offer that is presented to you because there are some amazing options available to you in Sunbury- just ask Mulberry dental of Walton, for they serve the town. One treatment you should certainly look into is the 6 Months Smile. It takes all the efficiency that traditional braces offer and then takes it to a different level with a modern take. The thing about braces is that they can look awkward, ugly too and take ages to do the job, but this one certainly bucks that trend. It is made from materials that match the colour of your teeth, so it will give you the utmost discretion once it has been set into place. Though it is also designed to sort out many problems with your teeth, it also works specifically on the teeth that are affecting your smile and being constantly tightened by your dentist, it moves these teeth as quick as its name suggests- 6 months. Cleaning with any fixed brace is always going to be an issue, but your dentist will supply you with all the tools and tips of the trade to get you through this, and anyway, it will be over with before you know it: it will also be gentle with your wallet too, as it is very reasonably priced compared to other choices out there.

Any form of tooth loss can be frightening at the time, but it can affect you even more once you have got over the initial trauma and see how it has affected the way you smile. It is therefore important to find a shoulder to confide on and find ways of getting around the problem: Mulberry Dental Care from Walton-on-Thames is a professional outfit that can give you the best advice about the problems of tooth loss and if you live in Molesey, you are in luck, as they serve the area. One of the treatments they may suggest to you is dental implant surgery. This involves placing a small titanium rod into your jawbone with laser surgery; it’s a simple procedure and once it is done and you have come through it, it is probably the most durable answer to losing a tooth or in fact teeth, that is on the market today. An implant doesn’t tend to suffer from infections like a natural tooth would and once the new crown has been attached to it an implant will be ever-lasting. This surgery has also diversified into other fields of tooth loss as well, such as supporting dental bridges and dentures. The freedom this treatment gives is remarkable and though it may appear expensive, remember- it’s for life!

If you have been born with an excess amount of gum tissue covering your teeth, you will know only too well how this condition can suffocate the way you smile in public. Similarly, having lips that retract too high above your teeth can also have a detrimental affect on the way you present yourself in front of other people. However, the world of modern dentistry has the answers to your problems and can free you from up in the blink of an eye. Thanks to laser technology, your gums can be contoured easily in about 30 minutes and put the length back into your teeth for a very reasonable price. With the problem of the ‘over-smile’, a simple operation can pin back your lips and stop them from riding up. The freedom that these treatments can give to you are so rewarding and can change the way you smile physically and how you feel psychologically. So if you want to know how, when and how much about these procedures, the people to ask are Mulberry Dental from Walton-on-Thames in Surrey. They serve the area and can supply you with the facts you’ll need to know.

About 40 years ago, it would be safe to say that the world of dentistry was in limbo: it was coming up with all these remarkable ideas and concepts which seemed to work okay, yet the tools to see these ideas through were holding the treatments back; scalpels and drills did the job, but also did a lot of damage too, which meant the recovery period after any procedure could be lengthy. Then one day, the laser came along and from that point on, dentistry set itself free. The wonderful thing about laser surgery is how slick it is: it works without vibration, so causes minimal damage to your teeth; it cuts through tissue without causing the surrounding areas trauma like a scalpel would, and hence removes the need for stitching. And as laser surgery developed, it began being used for all manner of dental treatments; the obvious benefactors of this are tooth decay treatments- now quick and painless. More intricate operations like solving periodontal and gum disease conditions have been massively improved thanks to laser surgery. Gum contouring too has radically changed and can be done in as little as 30 minutes and variations on the theme can also whiten your teeth effectively in an hour. But probably the best example of the way the laser works is in the treatment of tooth loss and the placement of dental implants; once very complex, you can now have them fitted in a day. If you want to know more about how lasers have defined the future of dental treatments in Kingston-upon-Thames and how you can benefit, Mulberry Dental of Walton-on-Thames in Surrey can tell you all you need to know.
