Summer Smiles

It's that wonderful time of year again, when the kids are off school for the summer and many of us have holidays booked. It's also a busy time for weddings and other formal events, so there's always plenty to look forward to.

With so many good things on the horizon, now is the time to start getting prepared. One treatment that can offer both instant and long-lasting results is tooth whitening.

By law, only a qualified and registered dental professional can carry out tooth whitening. This is because the products used are now highly regulated and there is a legal limit on the amount of bleach that can be used, in order to keep patients safe. This is why if you are considering whitening your teeth, you should get in touch with your dentist to ensure that the treatment you receive is legal and safe.

Here at Church Lane Dental, we only use the best professional products to help give our patients gleaming, white smiles. If you are thinking about giving your smile a refresh for the summer and would like to find out more about our tooth whitening treatments, just give us a call on 01942 726494.

Church Lane Dental Practice’ Top 10 Tips for Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene

hygeineMaintaining good dental hygiene is not only important for your mouth, but it is also important for your overall general health. Studies have found links between periodontal (gum) disease and other health conditions. Therefore if you follow these 10 easy tips you can help with the prevention of oral health issues.

  1. Attend your dentist for a six monthly clinical examination. Your dentist will look for early signs of tooth decay, signs of gum disease and an oral cancer screening.
  2. Brush for 2 minutes, twice a day.
  3. Make sure you brush all surfaces of your teeth, especially the backs of your teeth.
  4. Change your toothbrush/tooth brush head every 3 months.
  5. When brushing, remember to clean your tongue as well.
  6. Floss or use interdental brushes at least once a day.
  7. Use a mouthwash that is recommended by your dentist.
  8. Reduce the amount of tea, coffee, alcohol and fizzy drinks that you drink as they can cause staining, erosion and tooth decay.
  9. Maintain a well balanced diet. Vitamins and nutrients are vital to a healthy mouth e.g. calcium decreases risk of bone loss and ultimately tooth loss. Omeaga-3 (which is found in fish etc.) reduces inflammation which therefore lowers risk for gum disease.
  10. Cut down or even quit smoking! As well as causing staining, smoking is also a big factor in causing gum disease.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!
