5 reasons for regular dental care

Published by . Filed under General Dental Care.

If you take good care of your teeth by brushing twice a day, every day, then there’s a good chance you’ve sailed through life up until this point avoiding tooth pain. However, the very fact that you’re reading this indicates that you may suspect you have a need for a new dentist. What has changed recently? Perhaps you have moved house, become disillusioned with your previous dentist, or perhaps it’s been so many years since you saw a dentist that now you need one, you’re having to make a decision about which dental practice to join. If it’s the latter reason, you’re not alone.

The National Smile Survey indicates that 25% of UK citizens haven’t visited the dentist in the past two years, (you probably don’t want to hear this – but if you had seen your dentist more regularly, you probably wouldn’t be experiencing the dental issues you have right now!).

  1. Regular dentist visits will keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, but what does this actually mean? After all, you may have managed for years on brushing alone, without running into any problems. Here is an overview of how visiting the dentist regularly can stop you becoming a high risk candidate for a number of essential, invasive and ultimately unpleasant dental procedures.

How To Prevent Gum Disease

Published by . Filed under Dentist Lancaster, Dentures Lancaster, Oral Health.

The NHS website informs us that most people in the UK have gum disease to some extent and that just about everybody will experience it at least once in their lives, so what actually is it? If you don’t manage to successfully brush away all the food deposits left on your teeth through regular, thorough brushing, the food deposits which remain will turn into plaque.

Plaque is a sticky film that covers the teeth and contains lots of different bacteria. When plaque hardens it turns into tartar, which becomes particularly problematic around the gum line, causing inflammation of the gums. The symptoms you’ll notice first are that your gums are swollen, red and bleeding. You might notice blood in the sink when you rinse after brushing your teeth. You might also notice that you have bad breath, as this is another sign.

The ultimate toothpaste guide from your dentist in Lancaster

Published by . Filed under Dentist Lancaster, General Dental Care, Oral Health.

The Lancaster marketplace is awash with hundreds of different brands of toothpaste. Some focus on removing plaque, while others claim to make your teeth whiter. Some will reduce your sensitivity to extremes of temperature, while others say they’ll protect your teeth from gum disease.

If you have discoloured teeth, you’re more likely to choose a whitening brand, whereas if your teeth tingle when you eat hot soup, you may be more likely to opt for the sensitive types. You’ll be able to find a toothpaste that claims it contains the antidote to whatever bothers you about your teeth, but is this a marketing trick? Do toothpaste actually all contain the same ingredients, just different packaging?
