Residents from the Worcester Park Area Know How to Save their Teeth

When it comes to saving teeth, it is of utmost importance that if you notice any pain or swelling in your mouth, jaw or face to get treatment ASAP. Mulberry Dental Care believes that fast and efficient treatment of infections is needed so that your teeth can be saved and your mouth healed. Root canal treatment is a safe and effective way of treating the infection.

What causes the infection?

Infections are caused by bacteria that live in the mouth managing to get into the root of the tooth. This can happen when there is tooth decay in the mouth, also when fillings leak and also when teeth are damaged by some kind of trauma such as a fall or any hard impact to the mouth.

Once the bacteria get through to the root canal they will then pass out of the end of the root canal leaving a pathway for bacteria to continue to pass down through the root.

The tissue around the canal often becomes red and swollen and extremely painful. Often this causes an abscess and the face can swell up cause a lot of discomfort and disrupt your everyday life. Not a pleasant occurrence.

How can an infection be treated?

At Mulberry Dental Care treating the infection is important, for patients from Worchester and other nearby areas. The bacteria will be removed from the root canal and the hole leading our of the root canal will be filled and sealed with a crown or a filling. A local anaesthetic is normally used and the root canal treatment is able then to save the tooth or teeth that suffered the infection. Result!

It is an extremely successful procedure using the latest disinfection technology and one has to admit, it is a better treatment than dealing with missing teeth as a result of canal infection. If good oral hygiene is then used on a regular basis the treated teeth can last another ten years.

Smile makeovers for People of Worcester

For years most of us have put up with less than white, imperfect teeth. Discolouration is an extremely common problem especially with today’s on the go lifestyle. We think nothing of getting a coffee before work, eating foods which stain our teeth and drinking sugary drinks. Sometimes certain medication can discolour our teeth or perhaps a dental procedure done in childhood had left us with discoloured teeth. Many of us also have gaps in our teeth or crooked teeth, sometimes even broken teeth which can cause lack of confidence especially when smiling, laughing and even speaking. Now there is a chance to look like our favourite film stars and join them in the world of teeth perfection. At Mulberry we are lucky enough to work with the finest laboratories in the world, where many celebrity smiles are also crafted.

Is there a solution to discoloured teeth?

Whatever the reason there is now a fantastic solution offered by Mulberry Dental Care for patients from Worcester and nearby areas, namely the porcelain veneer. It hides problem teeth and makes your smile even better. It can solve a whole host of imperfections. Very thin pieces of porcelain are put on your teeth and they cover the surface of the teeth hiding gaps, discoloration and any other issue you want to hide.

Many patients who have turned to porcelain veneers have tried many other treatments such as tooth whitening or fillings but generally these treatments are inconsistent and patients are often left dissatisfied with the results. Porcelain veneers’ offer a long term solution to teeth imperfections and can boast self esteem and confidence. Who wouldn’t want to show off a dazzling celebrity smile?
