What is a dental crown? People often call them a "cap". It's a shell of ceramic, porcelain or metal that is made to fit over a tooth (see diagram below). They're usually needed to repair a tooth that has broken or decayed or to seal a tooth after root canal treatment (to prevent bacteria - or their food - getting back in after the root canals have been cleaned out). Crowns can be better than fillings because they're stronger, look fantastic and tend to last much longer: a published study* showed that nearly 97% of modern ceramic crowns survive at least 5 years - and generally they last far longer than that. Having a crown after root canal treatment (as opposed to a simple filling) is the single most important factor affecting how long the tooth is likely to last. Our own audit data show that where teeth are crowned after RCT, 91% survive for 5 years and 86% survive for 10 years or more. Where they are sealed with only a filling, just 69% survive for 5 years and less than two thirds survive 10 years. Of course, we only recommend crowns where they're the best option - if there's a simpler, cheaper or less invasive choice we'd always recommend that first. The photos below show the difference crowns can make to damaged and decaying teeth (we placed these crowns 10 years ago). * Sailer, I, Makarov, N, Thoma, D, Zwahlen, M and Pjetursson, B (2015).

What is tooth decay - and what can you do about it? Tooth decay (what dentists call "dental caries") can happen when you eat or drink something with sugar in. The sugar is metabolised (digested) by the bacteria that live in the plaque on your teeth, producing acid as a by-product. The acid dissolves the minerals that make your teeth hard, leading to "decay" or "cavities". Left untreated it can travel right through to the nerve and blood supply in the middle of the tooth, giving you a toothache. You might end up needing root canal treatment or even having the tooth taken out. You can take preventive action to stop this happening: 🔳 Use a fluoride toothpaste 🔳 Brush twice a day 🔳 Clean between your teeth with interspace or interdental brushes 🔳 Cut down on sugary and acidic food & drink (like sweets & fizzy drinks) 🔳 Avoid snacks between meals 🔳 Chew sugar-free gum after eating 🔳 Have fissure sealants to protect your back teeth 🔳 Visit your dentist and hygienist regularly

What Donald Trump's teeth can teach us.... One thing is sure - President Trump is no stranger to the dentist's chair. His teeth look completely different than they did 30 years ago; they've changed in colour and in shape (the photos below run from 1986 to the present day). Many people wonder if he's wearing dentures. He probably isn't (more likely, his teeth are veneered or crowned) and I'm pretty sure that's not the reaction he was hoping for. The problem is they just look too "perfect" and, ironically, there's nothing more likely to look peculiar than "perfect" teeth. What you really want are NATURAL looking teeth. Theoretically ideal proportions and that "paper-white" gleam look out-of-place on just about everyone; but with a little care a brighter, more ideal yet natural-looking smile can be achieved. The thing about really good, natural-looking teeth is that they make you look great but people often don't notice them - it's bad teeth that others see. Not just gappy, crooked or discoloured ones but the over-whitened celebrity type!

45 seconds that could save your life... That's how long it takes to check yourself for signs of mouth cancer. Look for: 🔳 Red or white patches 🔳 Long-lasting ulcers (3 weeks or more) 🔳 Unusual lumps or bumps in your mouth, lips, head or neck If you find any, make an appointment to see your dentist or doctor right away. It's that easy.

Why do we ask you about smoking when you come for your check-up? It's because smoking makes gum disease worse and harder to treat: smokers lose, on average, a lot more teeth than non-smokers. It also increases the risk of oral cancer. If you smoke, quitting is the single most important thing you can do to improve your health. So if you're interested in quitting, we can put you in touch with people who can help - or you can ask your GP for a referral to a smoking cessation service. Don't feel you have to go it alone and "just stop" - studies show that people who get help with quitting are much more likely to succeed. If you try and fail, there's no shame in that - just try again. Most people need several attempts before they manage it: so don't give up on giving up!

Have you heard about RSD? RSD (Root Surface Debridement) is the gold standard treatment used to halt the progress of periodontitis (gum disease). Over 30% of adults suffer from periodontitis, which causes deep periodontal "pockets" to form between your gums and the roots of your teeth. Left untreated, periodontitis can lead to unsightly inflammation, bleeding gums, halitosis (bad breath), exposed roots, receding gums, loss of the bone that supports the teeth and, eventually, tooth loss. RSD is all about removing deposits of calculus, plaque biofilm, bacteria and bacterial toxins from these pockets. This removes the source of the inflammation and halts the destruction of the periodontal tissues. RSD also involves careful analysis of where plaque deposits form on your teeth and help with selecting and using appropriate cleaning aids so you can get the best possible results from your home-care routine and keep your gums healthy. RSD is clinically proven and produces great results in nearly every case. If you'd like to find out more, just call us on 01803 866166.
