Strong teeth

 

geraThe majority of people tend to be pay more attention to the appearance rather than the health of their teeth. Sound dental health not only contributes to a beautiful smile but also to our general well being. Recent studies at Bristol University have revealed that gum and tooth disease can have adverse consequences to our general health.

When do we need to take action to have our teeth repaired or strengthened even though you may not feel any discomfort or pain!

When food persistently gets trapped between your teeth
• If you see or feel a hole in a tooth (cavity)
• If you notice a piece missing from a tooth (broken tooth)
• After root canal treatment, as teeth are more susceptible to fractures



Tooth decay and gum disease are the two main reasons for visiting the dentist. These days, with more people retaining their natural teeth for much longer, other problems have become apparent that we were not aware of in the past. More people suffer from sensitivity, erosion and wear, either due to dietary factors, bad habits or side effects of medication. It's always good to be prudent. Prevention can help you overcome these risks, if you act early, so don't wait until a problem appears to seek help. Plan your regular check up well ahead, to secure a trouble free smile.
