Experts Believe that our Teeth are Overworked

We’ve all heard people say ‘you need to look after your teeth,’ but do we really listen? Most of us brush and floss twice a day, in the belief that we will always have these teeth. But contrary to belief, it’s not just old age that causes us to lose our teeth, and dentures are now worn by people of all different ages. Statistics show that one in five adults is wearing a denture and they are not necessarily just a solution to losing teeth either.

 

Experts believe that like our bodies today, our teeth are being overworked by the amount of sugary foods that we eat on a daily basis. If we don’t find time for a proper dental regime, to brush, floss and rinse our mouths, then we are in danger of our teeth starting to decay. Teeth would then need to be pulled out and this isn’t an easy task when the jawbone starts melting away. If however, you developed gum disease from not flossing, you may have to start looking for a denture treatment dentist as you are then more prone to losing your teeth, than just cavity fillings that most of us are used to visiting our dentist for.

 

Half of people over fifty-five are now wearing dentures, but these aren’t always comfortable and even though new dentures are made to closely resemble the patient’s natural teeth, they may sometimes feel bigger than what they are, and slipping dentures are not uncommon. Denture stabilisation is a treatment where tiny screws are inserted into the jaw to ensure the dentures become stable and as firm as natural teeth.

 

The procedure of the overdenture implants into the jaw can be performed under a local anaesthetic and only takes one hour to complete. This can ease the embarrassment of the dentures slipping, especially in public and increase a person’s self-confidence and well-being. Although some people may still take awhile to get used to the new sensations and their speech being slightly unclear.

 

There are times when a full set of dentures are not required if only some of the teeth are missing. Full dentures are only needed if there are no teeth left at all, so a partial denture may be more suitable. Having a full mouth of teeth is important for our facial structure and our ability to be able to bite and chew food. Although with today’s society becoming obsessed with the perfect celebrity smile, dentures are also worn for cosmetic reasons.

 

With today’s technology, dentures can be so natural that people may not even know someone’s wearing them, although it may seem obvious to the person with the dentures. So, if you are in need of dentures, then don’t fear. Dentures can improve your smile, give you more confidence and be the start of a new you.

Florence Nightingale was a Former Resident of Harley Street

Think of Harley Street and images of well-dressed surgeons, dentists and superintendents come to mind. But for a street that began as a smattering of Georgian houses, it has grown into the most-reputable area in London.

 

Harley Street and the streets surrounding it, were originally part of the Howard de Walden estate, owned by the de Walden family and was passed to the Duke of Newcastle’s daughter in 1711, who went on to marry the second Earl of Oxford, Edward Harley. As London grew in the 18th century, Harley decided to develop all of his streets for residential purposes around Cavendish Square and honour members of his family by naming the streets after them. When he died, these were passed to his daughter who married the second Duke of Portland, and the area was now known as the Portland Estate.But the ownership of the estate went full circle when after five generations, the land was given back to the widow of the sixth Baron Howard de Walden, Lucy Joan Bentinck, and was known again as the Howard de Walden Estate.

 

It was at this time that doctors moved into the area due to the quality of the Georgian style houses. Others followed and the district soon became known as the medical centre of London. But a dental surgery at the heart of the Harley Street district was still needed for this thriving area, that was an ideal location in central London and close to Kings Cross and Marylebone train station. The Medical Society of London opened in 1873 and nearly forty years later the Royal Society of Medicine moved to Harley Street. The amount of doctors in the area grew to almost 200 by 1914, ten times more than when the first doctors arrived in 1860.

 

But the street also brought a famous resident. A year before the Crimean War in 1854, Florence Nightingale returned from a tour of Europe and Egypt where she had been studying various hospital systems, and took up the position of Superintendent at the Establishment for Gentleman during illness at No 1 Harley Street. Her former home is now occupied by England’s oldest private dental practice ‘90 Harley Street,’ who were the the first dental surgery in the Harley Street district.

 

Dr Edward Bach even practiced from Harley Street in the 1920s before moving to the London Homeopathic Hospital. His Bach Flower Remedies are now known all over the world. Today over 3000 people are employed within this prestigious street now full of private clinics, and Harley Street district dentists play their part in offering clinical excellence and are still being ran by highly classed professionals who are at the top of their game.

Treatment for Teeth Whitening is Widely Available

How important is smiling to our everyday life? If you’re of the impression that it’s simply something that you do when you watch a hilarious YouTube video featuring some cute cats, or something that you strain out when a work colleague tells a not-so-hilarious joke, then you need to think again. Smiling has been scientifically proven to, among other things, improve our mood when we’re feeling depressed, contagiously lighten up a room and boost our immune system. With so many advantages to smiling, one may wonder why there are so many glum faces in the world?

Studies have shown that one of the main reasons why a lot of people refuse to bear a grin when they feel it may be appropriate, is because they have discoloured teeth. Though they may not realise to begin with, this is in fact brought on by either a poor diet or infrequent teeth brushing. What happens over time is the outer layer of the tooth, known as enamel, becomes tainted by sugary foods and fizzy drink and, when not regularly or properly cleaned, begins to turn a shade of yellow or brown.

 

Another potential culprit for tooth discolouration is smoking; because of the addiction that comes with it, smoking is often one of the main contributors to discoloured teeth. In a similar way to what happens when teeth can become discoloured by food and drink, a yellow, brown, dark brown or even black stain can begin to develop on the enamel of the teeth, mainly because smoking prevents the flow of saliva in the mouth and tar builds up. What this then triggers is the smoker to develop a smile that they’re unhappy with, or that they feel is socially unacceptable.

 

Often a lot of people will attempt to tackle the problem themselves and try their best to avoid sugary foods, sugary drinks, coffee, tea, wine and tobacco, unaware that even foods such as blueberries can have the same effect that a glass of red wine can. There is a solution, however, and though the option of tooth whitening is often discarded as something that’s practiced in Hollywood, it’s actually more popular than people realise. Treatment for teeth whitening is widely available both on the internet and in dental practices, and is recommended by a large proportion of dentists.

 

Tooth whitening is a simple and effective solution, and everyone wants to lead a happier life, so why not begin with a smile that you’re happy with?

Don’t Take your Teeth for Granted

I hadn’t been to a dentist in 20 years. I wasn’t scared, I just didn’t see the point. As long as my teeth were still strong enough to chew my food I was happy. I’m sure that there are a lot of people out there right now that are just like me. To them, teeth are practical things and decay is pretty inevitable. When they finally go, you get a set of dentures and away you go.

 

I wasn’t always like that. When I was a kid, my parents took me to a big London dental clinic every year and I would always beam at the dentist, my mouth full of pearly white teeth. I brushed diligently and when I was 11 I got an electric toothbrush. I felt so grown up! As the years went by though, I stopped going to see Mr Price and my teeth seemed less and less important. I had bigger things to worry about: school, football, girls! It just didn’t seem to matter any more. Eventually my gums started to bleed whenever I brushed too hard, and my teeth were still looking pretty yellow afterwards so I just gave up. My days of waiting nervously in the dental clinic were over and I was free to eat as many sweets as I wanted.

 

Amazingly, I didn’t lose a single tooth. I was lucky I suppose, because with the sheer lack of care I was showing, I should have been little more than gums after a decade. My hand was forced when I was woken up in the middle of the night by the most awful, searing pain reverberating throughout my jaw. I would later find out that a molar in the lower left side of my mouth had become infected and swollen. At that moment, all I knew was that I was in trouble. It was unlike any other pain. I could feel every pulse of pain tremble down my jaw. It made me feel weak and dizzy and helpless.

 

I had a choice, I could either call the dental clinic or suffer in silence. For a few hours, I suffered. I was ashamed of what I had done, the state I had let myself get in to. I was worried that some of the staff might recognise me from my childhood and wonder what had happened to that sweet, smiling little boy. In the end, I swallowed my pride and called the dentist.

 

A few hours later, the throbbing had stopped, replaced by a dull ache. It still hurt, but it was fading steadily. When I had needed help, the clinic had welcomed me back without judgement. All they cared about was my health. If anything, they were glad that I was making the right choice and starting to look after myself again.

 

Looking back on it now, I’m actually glad that it happened. That might seem a little odd, given how painful it was, but I’m lucky that my tooth got infected: in the end it gave me a chance to ask for help and change my life for the better.
