Halitosis treatment in Burton and Ashby
There is little worse than meeting someone who has bad breath when they talk to you. In some cases such as a transaction in a shop, this unpleasantness is very temporary, but in business meetings for example, it can be a long and unpleasant time spent! Of course, we can’t do anything about the other person’s breath unless we know them well enough to point it out to them, but we can make sure that we don’t have bad breath ourself.

Root canal treatment in Burton and Ashby
Whilst much routine dental care deals with the repair and/or replacement of the enamel part of the teeth, sometimes the problem can be more deep seated and can result in the patient hearing their worst fear, the words ‘root canal’. For many years this procedure has been used as the benchmark by patients as the worst possible procedure that they could have to have. Interestingly though, these comments never seem to come from anyone who has had one.
Root canal treatment seems to have become one of those urban myths which do the rounds and are accepted into general belief. The reality though, as nearly always, is somewhat different.
Clear braces at Alexandra Dental Care near Burton and Ashby
As teenagers, we probably did our best to avoid having braces fitted, preferring to live with crooked teeth rather than have to wear the old fashioned braces. Nowadays, the braces are more discreet and even come branded or in different colours. This does seem to help teenagers cope with them a lot better.
This is of little consolation for those of us who are well into our adult life and would not be seen dead wearing braces, coloured or not. As we get older though, we can become more acutely aware of our uneven teeth and wish that we could do something about it without having to wear braces.

7 things you didn’t know about teeth whitening.
1. Whitening is safe.
If carried out by a trained professional, whitening is perfectly safe. Based on their knowledge of your oral health your dentist will discuss the options available, decide if tooth whitening is appropriate for you and develop an overall treatment plan that gives you the desired result.
2. Only trained dental professionals can whiten teeth.
It is illegal for anyone other than dentists or their teams to carry put teeth whitening. Anyone else offering teeth whitening (e.g. beauticians, hairdressers, and salon staff) won’t have the right training and knowledge, they could permanently damage your teeth and gums and can’t help you when something goes wrong.
3. The preferred option.
Whitening won’t remove the surface of your teeth or change their shape. It won’t harm or damage the enamel of your teeth.
4. Selecting the right product for you.
Your dentist is trained to know what whitening products will be safe for your teeth and gums. Products provided by non-dentists often do not have enough data and evidence to support their use; this can result in burned gums and/or blistered lips or even more serious consequences. Using products that are not appropriate for you will produce poor results.
5. How it works.
A carefully-controlled concentration of bleach is applied to your teeth using specially-made trays that fit in your mouth. Your dentist will be able to discuss with you the level of whitening you want and give you an idea of how many treatments you may need to achieve the shade you’re after.
6. What to expect.
You may experience some sensitivity for a short time during your treatment but this is normal and will soon fade away after completion
7. Over the counter kits may not be safe.
The products you can buy online or from high street shops often fail to declare the precise Chemicals used so it is very difficult to assess their safety. Because of this they may not be considered safe. These shop or internet bought products won’t produce the same good results you can expect by visiting your dentist.

Looking after your teeth and gums for life in Burton and Ashby
Whilst it is commonly perceived that dentists are there simply to repair any damage to a patient’s teeth, there is an equally significant role that they play and one that our dentists and other members of staff at our dental practice serving Burton and Ashby are proud of. That role is to actually prevent dental problems in the first place where this is possible. Of course, there will always be occasions where damage is not preventable such as the result of accidents etc but a great deal of dental problems can be avoided with just a little knowledge and care.
There are two key factors which contribute to problems with the teeth and they are decay and gum disease. Addressing these issues will help to avoid a great many fillings and extractions that would otherwise have to take place.
Clarifying popular questions about the implant process
Once a tooth has become very badly decayed or damaged, there is usually little choice other than to remove it. Once this has happened of course, the patient is left with a space between their teeth; this can affect their chewing action as well as looking unattractive if it is a visible front tooth. Because of this, most people will look for a replacement option and whilst dentures have been the ‘go to’ choice for years, dental implants are now catching up rapidly. This simple yet effective procedure can ensure that you have a strong replacement tooth that will last for a good number of years. Despite the success rate of the procedure and the fact that we receive a great many positive testimonials about implants at our practice near Burton and Ashby, there are still a number of myths and concerns expressed by potential new patients about the process which we would like to address here.
Smile confidently into Spring and Summer
As the snow (hopefully) recedes into a distant memory and we start to feel the heat from just the first few rays of sunshine, our thoughts start to turn to the Spring, the time when we throw away the layers of dull coloured clothing we have used to keep ourselves warm and start to dig out the more colourful spring and summer wear that hasn’t seen the light of day for a while.
As we do this, we probably also take stock of the way that we look, those extra pounds that can come off with just a bit of effort and possibly a new hairstyle too. These things will all help us to feel good about ourselves as we prepare for the better weather, but why stop there? Why not consider giving your teeth an overhaul too?
