How dental implants benefit your dental health

Losing a tooth, despite our best efforts and intentions, is very disheartening. Whether through complete accident, inattentive cleaning, or trauma, it’s never nice to find a gap in your smile. Dental implants replace these missing teeth to restore your smile to its former glory, but is that all they do? They represent a big investment to some patients, both financially and in treatment time, so surely there are some other perks to replacing missing teeth with dental implants? These are the health benefits of dental implants.

What is dental sedation?

Dental phobia is incredibly common in the UK, with plenty of patients feeling too nervous to visit the dentist. Missing out on expert dental care means risking your dental health as a whole, leading to possibly losing teeth and normal mouth function.

Teeth Whitening FAQ

Invisible braces at City Bridge Dental Care

Nowadays, there are so many options in orthodontist treatment. Especially for adults who may have turned down braces or aligners when they were younger, and now wish they had. For these adults, very often their main concern is the obvious nature of traditional, metal braces. Subtlety is not a word used to describe them. For young people this is completely fine and accepted, however many adults in a professional environment are concerned of their appearance. They may ask if it’s possible to have orthodontic treatment without looking like you’re having orthodontic treatment. Will people need to know that you’re wearing braces?

What foods are bad for my teeth?

The saying “you are what you eat” is even more irritating when you realise how true it is. In terms of the health of your teeth, the health of your food choices is extremely apparent. Your dentist can very clearly see what you’ve been eating by the amount of plaque coating your teeth. After we eat a sugary snack, the sugars in that food or drink cause the enamel on your tooth to break down. If enough of the enamel has broken down, there is a big chance of a cavity forming. How can you avoid the likelihood of you developing a cavity? By avoiding the foods listed below. Some of them may be surprising!
