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”.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth Grinding, A Damaging Habit

Teeth grinding is a problem for quite a few people, not only is it damaging, it is hard to often stop as it mostly occurs in patients during their sleep.

Teeth grinding otherwise known as bruxism generally occurs when we are under stress, unfortunately, whether at home or work many of us suffer from day to day stress in some form or another.

The Prevention

Preventing teeth grinding, whilst, unfortunately, there is no quick fix, one solution is to wear a mouth guard during the night to help stop you grinding. Your dentist can discuss this possibility with you and also assess any damage which has already occurred. The stress you may be going through maybe just short term, for example, changing jobs or moving home.  Whilst other problems maybe longer lasting and can have more effect on your teeth and overall general health.  Nowadays there are many books and websites which deal with reducing stress, medication, yoga and breathing exercises are just some of the things which can help.  In addition, you should also seek medical guidance from your GP if you are suffering from long-term stress.

Restoring Damage

Once you have stopped grinding your teeth, this is a good time to see how they can be restored. Teeth may have become chipped, worn or even broken during grinding.  If this is the case we may use a variety of treatments to restore their functionality.  Small chips to the teeth can be restored generally with bonding or tooth coloured fillings.  However, where teeth have become more badly damaged or worn they may require more in-depth treatment.  Often dental crowns may need to be used, dental implants, bridges or dentures.  Our dentists will discuss this with you depending on your own situation and the best treatment for your individual circumstances.

Finally, if you are having trouble grinding your teeth, why not make an appointment with our Cosmetic Dentists to discuss possible solutions?  You will find all our details on the contact us page.

App for brushing your teeth

Yes there is an app to help you with brushing your teeth effectively

Brushing your teeth effectively is essential to help maintain healthy teeth and gums, now there is a new way to help you do this.

There are many toothbrushes which now come with built-in timers, but if you don’t have one of those its not always easy to ensure you are brushing for long enough.

Now with modern technology, most people have a smartphone so there are no more excuses.  There are a lot of different apps available even fun ones for children and videos too. The Oral B App can be connected to the Oral B Genius toothbrush and it tells you which areas you need to brush more, it even lets you know if you are pressing too hard. It stores the data so you can see how you are improving which is great for ensuring you get the best out of those two minutes of brushing twice a day.

The Oral B App is designed to work with the Oral B GENIUS electric toothbrushes, in order to help you perfect the brushing of your teeth. Often when using a manual toothbrush users press too hard which can be harmful to the gums. With the Oral-B’s pressure guidance system, up to 93% of aggressive brushers actually reduced their force.

Furthermore, the app offers a new feature which is the Oral-B FunZone, it offers a fun-filled reward system with photo engaging filter themes similar to social media platforms.

The App is free on IOS and Android to download, its available on the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

Crowns the dentists guide

Frequently answered questions regarding crowns

Firstly crowns are artificial restoration which fits over the remaining part of a tooth.  The crown makes it stronger and gives the shape of a natural tooth, often known as a cap.

Crowns are an ideal way to restore teeth which may have been broken. Improve the appearance of a discoloured filling or to protect what is left of your tooth. When it comes to improving the look of your smile. Usually, ceramic or porcelain cosmetic crowns are used to enhance shape. You can even choose the shade of your teeth once you have whitening done, so the crown can be virtually undetectable.

Dentist News – Enjoy Easter the healthy way

Dentist News – Enjoying Easter The Healthy Way

Enjoying Easter the healthy way.

Many of us years ago, used to keep their Easter eggs until Easter Sunday. Although nowadays they are often given out on good Friday, sometimes even sooner which leads to more chocolate consumption. Not too long after Christmas we see the shops stocking up their shelves with all the Easter eggs, a temptation for everyone. The reality is too much sugar and chocolate is not good for our teeth or our children’s teeth. Therefore we have put together a few tips to try and stay healthy whilst enjoying easter.

Recommendations from Oral Experts are:

  1. Buy a smaller egg
  2. Consider dark chocolate instead, with high cocoa content. White chocolate and milk have more sugar content
  3. Try to buy an egg without additional bars of sweets in the same packet or an egg that just has the shell
  4. Eat the eggs as an alternative to a desert or after meals rather than as a snack
  5. After eating the eggs, wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth. Do not brush immediately as this can damage the dentine below the enamel

Our Dentists want you to still enjoy Easter

Our team of dentists still want our customers to have a fantastic Easter. By following some of these guidelines hopefully, will help you have a more healthier Easter.

Dental Checkups

It is best to keep up regular check ups with your dentist. If you are unhappy with your current dentist or perhaps you have not been for awhile. Why not make a check up today with one of our dentists to help look after your teeth and gums and keep them healthy?
