Clear Braces Newcastle Dentists

Clear Braces Newcastle Dental Centre

Clear braces are becoming extremely popular for teeth straightening.  Gone are the days when there was no option but to have metal braces.

Teeth straightening, however, can be one of the longest dental treatments to carry out.  Patients may in some cases have to wear braces for a year or more depending on their individual circumstances, in some cases, this can often put people off wearing them. The good news is this is not always the case and many patients complete their treatment in a much shorter time.

Thankfully also with clear braces, they are a lot more aesthetically pleasing which a lot of patients prefer.  These offer less discomfort and they are not as inconvenient as traditional braces. The system we offer at our dental centre is Invisalign.

How Alcohol Could Be Changing The Bacteria In Your Mouth

Could alcohol change the bacteria in your mouth?

Enjoying just one alcoholic drink could be changing the bacteria in your mouth. Furthermore, it could lead to oral cancer according to a new study.

Researchers who have been looking into the effects alcohol has on oral health discovered that it can influence the type of bacteria which resides in the mouth.  Higher numbers of bad bacteria were found within the mouths of those who consumed alcohol on a daily basis.

Scientists tested samples from over 1,000 adults, it was found that compared to non-drinkers those who consumed more than one alcoholic drink a day saw a reduction of the healthy bacteria, with a significant increase of the more harmful bacteria showing.

These changes could go on to contribute to alcohol-related diseases, for example, gum disease, digestive tract cancers, oral cancer.

“By giving the mouth a good clean last thing at night, bacteria in the saliva can be neutralised and help prevent any unwanted oral health or general health problems”.

Deep Cleaning For Your Teeth

Why Do We Need Deep Cleaning For Our Teeth?

Deep cleaning is a procedure carried out to treat gum and periodontal disease.  The process is often carried out as the patient has not had regular professional cleaning appointments ( every six months).

This procedure is carried out by a dental hygienist.  An instrument is used to measures the area surrounding the teeth to see if they are any gaps between the teeth and gums where bacteria could begin to form. These areas are called pockets, healthy pockets are 3 – 4 millimetres deep.  For instance, if they are deeper than 5 millimetres you may require a deep scale.

Dentists Demand A Ban On Coca-Cola Truck

Dentists demand a ban on the Coca-cola truck

Dentists demand a ban, the British Dental Association has urged the Coca-Cola company to lose its spin on the healthy options which it is offering on its Christmas tour – given their sugar-free brands are more acidic than lemon juice and vinegar and have helped leave almost half of teens with dental erosion.

The professional association for UK dentists said Coca-Cola has been trying to deflect heavy criticism of the truck by focusing on its zero sugar varieties of the drink.  The British Dental Association, however, pointed out that both Coke Zero and Diet Coke like Classic Coke, contain phosphoric acid which gives that sharp flavour.  Colas are also carbonated, so newly opened cans also contain high quantities of dissolved carbonic acids.

Whitening products

These Considering purchasing whitening products?

Considering trying whitening products, then read our latest article.

What are the causes of yellow teeth?

Teeth are made of several layers.   Enamel is the outer layer, a thin, hard sheet which helps protect your teeth.  When coffee, red wine and other staining products come into contact with the teeth the residue from these then starts to form another layer, this is a pellicle film on the teeth.  As this sits on the teeth, it embeds slowly into the enamel, becoming difficult to remove.  Even with regular dental hygienist appointments every six months, sometimes there will still be stains left behind.  The more time the stains have been on your teeth the harder it will become to remove them.
