From time to time, we notice things about our teeth that aren’t quite right. Whether dental problems are in the early stages or in a more developed stage, this blog outlines some of the problems that affect teeth. Also, this blog tells you how we at Midlands Smile Centres can provide treatment to alleviate these problems. This is good news for you. The MSC boast a team of highly skilled, proficient and experienced dentists ready and willing to give you the help you need.
Poor Oral Health
It is very important to achieve and maintain the standard of your oral health. Failing to do so can lead to an increased chance of tooth wear, tooth decay and gum disease. Making an effort to prevent gum disease is especially important because gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.
The most important thing to do to maintain your oral health is to brush twice daily to floss and use mouthwash.
After that, the most helpful thing to do to keep on top of your oral health (or to fix it, if you know it is already poor) is to visit the hygienist.
The hygienist will give your teeth a good, through and professional clean. This process is commonly referred to as a scale and polish. In addition to this, the hygienist will provide advice about helping you to keep your teeth plaque-free. The hygienist will also advise you about your diet and ways to prevent tooth decay.
This is a very common issue that affects many people. As wisdom teeth come through, they can cause pain or discomfort. The reason for this is that often there is not space inside the mouth and the wisdom teeth push against the other teeth in the mouth or emerge at an angle.
Dissatisfaction with teeth’s appearance
This problem is an entirely subjective one. Put simply, some people are not happy with the way their teeth look, and feel this is an issue that needs rectifying. Crooked or crowded teeth, or teeth that are thought to not be white enough are examples of the complaints that some people have with their teeth.
There are many and various cosmetic dental treatments to improve the appearance of teeth:
These are tooth-coloured, thin layers of material. They are usually made of porcelain and are placed over irregular shaped or discoloured teeth.
If the dentist decides that it is suitable for you, you will have the option of being able to use a home whitening kit. For these kits, specially made trays will be created that can be filled with whitening gel and worn for a few hours every day until the desired result is achieved.
This form of cosmetic dentistry utilises a pressurised jet of air, water and sodium bicarbonate to remove stains, clean between your teeth and remove the build-up of plaque.
For an extra touch of style, gold services at MSC may just be what you’re looking for. We offer gold implants, gold crowns/custom crown design, gold inlays and gold veneers.
The problem of a missing tooth can be a result of many things including illness, accident, injury, sporting injury or simply poor oral hygiene. Missing teeth pose various problems not only with eating, but with tooth development and gum integrity. Perhaps one of the most significant problems is that a missing tooth can undermine a person’s confidence due to the impact they have on their smile.
There are several different ways to deal with the issue of missing teeth. These range from dental implants, denture implants or gold implants, to bridges and dentures. Where a tooth is only partially damaged a crown may be recommended to restore the missing part of a tooth.
There are many ways in which people can experience dental problems and a good look at them only highlights the need for careful dental hygiene and regular check-ups with your dentist and hygienist to quickly identify and deal with emerging problems.
