Bristol dentists replace lost teeth with dental bridges

Replacing a lost tooth or teeth is vital to secure the long term health of your mouth. Having a gap in your smile can lead to a loss of confidence if you find that you are embarrassed about smiling in social situations. Eating and drinking can become painful and the teeth surrounding the gap might begin to shift. If you have lost a number of teeth your cheeks might sag, making you look older than you are. Whether you have lost a tooth through an accident, dental decay or gum disease, dental bridges provide the answer. There are three types of dental bridge, the most common being the traditional or fixed variety. Here a false tooth, known as a pontic, is affixed between two crowns which themselves are anchored to neighbouring teeth. This is avery stable method an ideal if you have lost one tooth. In cases where one of your front teeth has been lost a plastic pontic will be used in a process called resin-bonded or Maryland-bonded bridges. This method ensures that your smile looks as natural as possible by concealing the resin. You might need a cantilever bridge if it is decided that the pontic can only be fused to a tooth on one side because your front teeth are liable to experience stress. To make sure that the bridge and pontic will have enough room your dentist might shave off a little of an existing tooth. Using a mould that has been taken of your mouth, technicians in a specialist lab will fabricate a replacement which will be attached with dental cement. While you wait for this, to keep the area protected, you will wear a temporary bridge. Contact your Bristol dentist if you have lost a tooth and want to find out more about the dental bridge work which can provide you with a lasting solution.

Bath Dentist Treats Gum Disease

Gum disease is a very serious problem that many people are either unaware of or underestimate. Not only can gum disease affect the health of your mouth and teeth, leading to pain and lost teeth but it also has links to wider health conditions such as heart disease and even fatal heart attacks.Gum disease starts when a layer of plaque is allowed to build up on the gums. This bacteria-rich, filmy substance coats the gums and begins to release acid which irritates the tissue. If this is allowed to continue the gum tissue will become inflamed. This early stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis and is characterised by red and sore tissue and minor swelling. At this stage in the disease it can be easily treated and reversed with improved oral hygiene and a visit to your Bath dentists However, if the gingivitis is allowed to get worse the condition becomes the more serious periodontitis which is much harder to treat and has much more serious consequences. It is estimated that three-quarters of all the adults in the UK will have gum disease at some stage which gives you an indication of how widespread the problem is. The health of your teeth and gums should never be underestimated. Having healthy gums will make your life so much easier and the best thing is, it’s really not that hard to achieve. Follow the advice of your dentist and brush your teeth twice a day with an appropriate brush. Also, it is crucial for your gums that you are flossing as this removes plaque from the small secluded areas around the base of the teeth where so many cases of gum disease start. A regular check up with your dentist every six months will also help to limit the chance of gum disease.

Face your dental phobia with help from Chepstow dentist

Many people have a fear of the dentist. In a recent survey it was found that nearly ninety per cent of people in the UK admitted to having a fear of the dentists. While this is a very high number, there are many types and levels of fear and most people are able to put this to one side and receive the dental treatment they need. But in some cases, the fear so big that it becomes all consuming. When fear takes over and begins to affect every aspect of your life, causing anxiety, panic and stress, it is then known as a phobia. Phobia is the most severe kind of fear and when it comes to dental phobia, prevents the patients from receiving the necessary dental treatment they may require. This can present a serious problem resulting in lost teeth, dental decay and even life-threatening gum disease. However, despite what it may feel like when in the midst of dental phobia, it is possible to overcome the fear and conquer it completely. This often involves a large input from a Chepstow dentist. Modern dentists are trained to help anxious and phobic patients and have a far greater understanding of exactly how difficult and unsettling it can be. They are able to help you by talking through your fears and helping to alleviate them by discussing exactly what is going to happen during the treatment. They are also trained in relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises and will even offer other forms of relaxation such as aromatherapy. This has been shown to help calm patients nerves before treatment. The first step towards successfully conquering your fear is to make an appointment to just have a chat with your dentist. By making small steps such as these you will soon be on the road to receiving the treatment you need.
