Creating a beautiful smile begins with creating a healthy mouth! Approximately 200 million people have old silver fillings that need to be replaced. Most of the time the cavities that have found their way under the old silver filling, produce little to no discomfort.
According to Dr's, “Patients make the assumption that if it doesn’t hurt everything is ok. Unfortunately, when discomfort does occur, it is likely the nerve can be damaged beyond repair and may require a root canal or worse, tooth removal!”.
The advent of bonding teeth has provided a superior alternative to the traditional silver filling. Through the process of bonding fillings, a mechanical link is formed to the enamel of your tooth that allows dentists to restore a persons tooth to the correct strength, function and esthetics!
Get regular check-ups to confirm your oral health is at it’s best!
Once you have eaten, the bacteria in your mouth go crazy for the sugar left on your teeth. It is broken down into acid form that eats away at the tooth enamel, making cavities and holes. A build up of plaque can also cause Gingivitis - a gum disease which can turn your gums swollen, sore and very red and we all know you need your gums to secure your teeth in place!
If you mistreat your teeth, unhealthy gums and cavities can make your mouth sore, making meal times difficult and you won’t want to be smiling too much!
We now live in an age where we know so much more about how to take care of our teeth. Many years ago, as people aged, they would find their teeth were very painful and often rotted away. To soothe a tooth ache they simply had their teeth removed. Eventually they realised that looking after their teeth was important, but they didn’t have the technology we have today. While we think nothing about a pea sized amount of toothpaste they were using more primitive methods such as lemon juice, tobacco and honey mixed together with chalk or charcoal - can you imagine?!
It was only around 100 years ago that someone invented a minty like cream to clean teeth with, shortly after that toothpaste was created. Today there is a huge selection of flavours and colours to choose from, with some just made for our children.
Brushing is good but you also need to be careful of what you consume - plaque can’t wait for the sugar to arrive so eat lots of fresh fruit and veg and drink plenty of water.
