Excellent root canal dental services Dewsbury? An implant consists of an artificial root made of titanium and a natural-looking replacement tooth made of porcelain. The root is placed within the gum and fixed to the jawbone to give a strong and secure foundation onto which the replacement tooth is then fitted. Dental implants can be used to secure one or more teeth in place, right up to a full set. These are one of the greatest leaps forward in dentistry in recent years and are as close to natural teeth as dentists can achieve at the moment.

Did you know that good oral hygiene has implications for your general health as well? There’s an increasing amount of evidence linking periodontal disease to an increased risk of heart disease, although more studies are needed to confirm this link. It is now believed that infections in the mouth can increase the levels of inflammatory substances in the blood, which can promote blood clots and slow blood flow to the heart. There is also evidence that bacteria from a mouth infection can easily enter the bloodstream and impact your cardiovascular system.
Why do I have to give a medical history when I attend the dentist? The dentist not only needs to check the health of your head and neck and inside of your mouth but is also assessing your overall health. This includes your past and current medical history, any allergies or chronic medical conditions and any medication you might be taking. Letting the dentist know what medication you are on is important as some medications have an effect on the treatment that the dentist prescribes. For example, some medications cause your glands to produce less saliva causing “dry-mouth”. This can increase the risk of decay for some people as the plaque is more likely to dry on the teeth rather than be washed away by saliva. The dentist and hygienist can advise ways to reduce such risks and a full medical history can help them to assist you.
Bridges: A dental bridge is used to fill a gap left by missing teeth. It has a crown on each end which acts as anchor and the artificial tooth or teeth are connected to the crowns to fill the space. Dental Implants: dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. An implant has 2 parts: a metal anchor which attaches to the jawbone and a false tooth, similar to a crown. Depending on the situation, we will make certain recommendations about which kinds of restorative dentistry would be most appropriate. See more information on https://www.batleycarrdental.co.uk/.
Learn proper brushing technique. Brushing too vigorously can increase your likelihood of gum recession and damaged tooth enamel. To brush properly, hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle in relation to your gums and move your hand in a circular motion. Floss at least once per day. Even if you brush twice a day, food particles can still get trapped in the spaces between your teeth. Flossing once a day helps to prevent tartar buildup that contributes to tooth decay and gum disease.
