A London Cosmetic Dentist Determines Eligibility for Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial replacement for a tooth root. As the main aim of an implant is to support an artificial tooth, it normally contains an internal screw thread or post space that allows an artificial tooth to be fitted. Who is suitable for a dental implant? If you are in good general oral health, you will likely be a good candidate for a dental implant. If, however, you suffer from gum problems such as gum disease, you may need to undergo treatment before you can receive a dental implant. Gum disease is a leading cause of bone loss, which can make things more complicated for your local cosmetic dentistry expert.

Custom Dental Veneers Ensure That Your Smile Will Always Look Great

Your teeth may seem like they can handle anything, however, they can be damaged if exposed to enough wear and tear. An experienced dentist like one from the London Bridge Dental Practice can help repair the different types of damage that affect your teeth. These methods can range from applying natural-looking dental veneers to dental implants.

Looking after a Porcelain Crown

Certain teeth conditions may require installing a crown over your affected tooth. Advances in dental technology have allowed the development of porcelain crowns, in lieu of metallic ones which have been installed for years, so most crowns nowadays are porcelain. Once your dentist installs one on your tooth, it is now your responsibility to maintain it.

Continue oral hygiene practices.

The tooth that has a crown is still not safe from cavities so regular oral hygiene is of utmost importance. Start by brushing your teeth regularly like you always do, but be gentle, so as not to dislodge the crown by accident. Ask your cosmetic dentist if you could use a toothpaste that does not react to or damage the adhesive used for the crown. Interdental brushes, which are commonly used for teeth with braces, can also be used to remove plaque from the crevices between the teeth, especially those adjacent to the crown.

Invisible Braces in London: Convenient Treatment for Misaligned Teeth

"Crooked and misaligned teeth have adverse consequences on a person’s oral health, apart from making a bad impression on other people. Although applying dental braces is the usual orthodontic treatment for this condition, the wires and brackets often discourage many patients, because they have to be worn from a few months to two years. For better oral healthcare, new types of braces were developed that function well without the inconvenience of metallic materials. One of these innovations is clear aligners or clear braces, an orthodontic device that uses stable clear plastic component that are nearly invisible on the outside. The British Dental Health Foundation explained that invisible braces in London and elsewhere are moulded into sets, which are then worn for 22 to 23 hours a day and replaced every two weeks during the entire treatment."

Dental Implants in London: A Look their Long History and Evolution

"Since the beginning of time, humans have been seeking ways to replace lost or missing teeth. Today, dental implants in London and elsewhere represent the pinnacle of teeth replacement methods. Before that, however, man had made use of various techniques and contraptions to compensate for their missing teeth. Human skulls dating back to 600 AD have shown that surgeons used carved seashells as a method of tooth replacement. In ancient China, teeth were replaced with carved bamboo pegs while in other parts of the world people tried to replace teeth with animal teeth or teeth bought from slaves or poor people. Some of the replacements were found to have been fused to the jawbone. It is evident that man had relied on various materials that may have been awkward or had poor success rates."
