If there is anything that will make you unpopular at work, and socially, it is bad breath and getting to the root of what causes it can be very difficult, but you can follow a set of rules about how to tackle it. First stop is your dentist to check for gum disease and tooth decay and then go about tackling it. Now, look at your lifestyle; are you a heavy drinker do you smoke and how good is your oral hygiene? These are some of the protagonists that cause bad breath and need to be addressed. Your diet is also important in order to keep your immune systems strong and the saliva levels in your mouth high. Once you have addressed all of these, you should add little touches to the way you clean your teeth at night: herbal medicines can help to restore balance to the mouth and leave your breath re-vitalised. Drinking lots of water and using sugar free gum can also help to build up the saliva levels in your mouth- the mouths natural defence to bacteria. The thing about bad breath is that it is an indicator that something is wrong somewhere. If you have thrown the kitchen sink at the problem and yet it still persists, it could be a lot more serious than was first expected and you should seek out a doctor for a complete check-up and analysis, for the causes could be gastric an emanating from inside your stomach and that is not good at all.

Horror films have always traditionally had something that goes bump in the night at some point in the plot: the night-time is the time when we seem to be at our most vulnerable as humans, well isn’t that the truth, because as we get older, there is a possible killer in our presence in London- lurking whenever we go to sleep- sleep apnoea. When we turn in for the night, we take it for granted that we are going to wake refreshed in the morning. Whilst we’re happy dreaming, our body goes into automatic and three vital elements take control. The brain sends signals through the mouth and nose into the lungs to start taking in air in order that the heart can start pumping blood and oxygen around the body and up into the brain so that the cycle can start all over again. However, if you have any sort of blockage at the point of entry where the air enters the body, the whole system can stall and falter. In some cases, you can stop breathing for up to half a minute, until the lungs finally get some air into the body. This in turn panics the heart rate and then the brain, and all through the night, the body is fighting and changing all the time to adjust to the irregularity of this air intake. It can cause terrible fatigue and without you knowing it, your breathing during day will also become irregular: in the end, the heart will fail. You should consult your dentist and doctor about this in order to ascertain what the exact symptoms of sleep apnoea are and how you can stop it.
The most beautiful quality about cosmetic dentistry is that while it ensures the treatments that are done are going to uphold the first criteria of maintaining the health of your mouth, it then goes and make you forget about the nastiness that you may of just come through by restoring total beauty to your mouth again. The perfect example of this is the fitting of a crown: these are used to restore a tooth after root canal treatment or used to replace a tooth after it has been lost. They fill you with confidence again after what can be a traumatic time. Two of the crowns that you can have fitted are both made from porcelain- a stunning material that is akin to the natural beauty to be found in the teeth’s enamel. The type of crown you have is dependant on where it needs to go in your mouth. Porcelain-over-metal is a strong, durable crown that can withstand a battering from chewing and biting, so these would normally be fitted to the rear of the mouth. Full porcelain is not so strong but it can take a nattering so this would normally be placed towards the front of the mouth where all it has to do is look pretty. The good thing is that if you look after them they will serve you with honesty for a good many years whilst maintaining that priceless smile.
Life can be going along quite nicely inLondonand then you may start to find that you are suffering from a little discomfort in your mouth: maybe you have a repetitive ulcer or two, are suffering from a constant sore throat, maybe you have an aching jaw all the time and so on and so on. So you should go and get yourself checked out because these are just some of the symptoms that may indicate the onset of oral cancer (as with any problem, you should always get yourself seen to). You will have a serious of tests first to see if the disease is there. If the news comes back that you have, it will hit you like a bomb, but it is how you face up to what is ahead of you that can be the difference of coming through it or not. You need to curtail such things as smoking, drinking and improve your diet- the things that may have led you to this crossroads in your life. Prepare by getting a support system of friends and family on board and have professional care ready for when the treatment is finished. The treatment can be quite heavy; it may take the form of chemo, radio or physical surgery but either way, it will leave you shattered afterwards, which is where the support comes in. afterwards, you are going to have to throw away everything you did before and carve out a new regime in order you give yourself the biggest chance of coming through it and ensuring that the problem doesn’t come back. The light amongst the darkness of all this is that the statistical recovery rates from the disease is soaring.
There are some fantastic braces and aligners on the market today in London that promise to get your teeth into shape in as quickly as possible, which for anyone that has to endure this torrid time of their lives is a dream. But for most people, it’s not the time it takes so much as how the brace looks in the mouth, especially if the treatment is lengthy. But from the U.S.A has come an absolute dream of an aligner that blows all of these concerns out of the water- Invisalign, and it’s an aligner that flies in the face of convention when it comes to teeth straightening. Its biggest selling point is that it is made from a clear plastic that is almost impossible to detect by anyone else but you and that alone comes as the biggest relief for anyone about to get their teeth straightened. As for the time involved, that also comes as a bonus, for it works a lot faster than most other aligners and braces around- most treatments are over in around a year: funny really since you can’t see it. But to seal the deal for anyone who is thinking about Invisalign, the aligner only has to be worn for about 22 hours a day….yes, it can be taken out: the implications of this are great because you can carry on eating and cleaning your teeth as you would normally do. Prices do vary from place to place, but to hell with the price, it’s what it does and how it does it that matter.
It has to be something very special that takes a well grounded industry like dentistry sit up and take notice, but Enlighten Tooth Whitening has completely stormed the court of the dental world. Yet on paper, it doesn’t look any different from a home bleaching kit that you’d buy at any chemists in London. With Enlighten, your dentist will make up the bleaching trays for you as they need to be water-tight; then you will get your kit and be sent home to start your treatment. Each night, you fill the trays with the bleaching agent and then fit them to your teeth before you go to sleep; you then take them out in the morning and wash them in readiness for the next night and it’s a process you will repeat for the next fortnight. During this time, you have to follow a strict regime: no smoking, avoid foods and drinks that may stain your teeth and you must use whitening toothpaste throughout….but boy is it worth it! Once the treatment is completed, it’s back to the dentist for a quick laser blast….and you’re done. Sounds not so different from cheaper versions eh? But when you get the chance, have a good look at your teeth in the mirror and you will see just why this product is so highly rated and respected: your teeth will look like pure porcelain in a magical way that you never thought was possible AND YES! They are your teeth and they are in your mouth!!!
When a new product firsts bursts onto the scene, it has a lot to prove and a lot of convincing to the general public that it is the real deal. So if that product is still thriving decades later, it must be doing something right: in the dental world, the porcelain veneer is just such a product and the reason it has been so successful is the job that it does. As you get older in a place like London, with the 24 hour demands that it can place on you, your teeth will be one of the obvious parts of your body to show signs of wear and tear: they may start to lose their length, cracks may appear in the enamel, gaps may start to show between them and your gums may also start to recede a bit. Now if you are in the lime-light in the job you do, not only will it start to affect the way you project yourself, but it may affect the way others perceive you too. The only way to cover up all of these problems is to have a veneer fitted and porcelain is the perfect material to use; not only does it mirror the beautiful sheen in your original enamel, but it just radiates health and love and beauty- now that’s a smile you need to have! After a quick preparation from the dentist, it’ll usually take a couple of weeks to make the veneers up in a lab and when they are ready, your dentist will simply cement them onto the surface of the teeth. Gone are all of those signs of ageing and you are left with a smile that will rock the world around you.
There are many things that can shock and scare you in life, but losing a tooth must be up there on that list as it has many implications attached to it; ageing, the loss of beauty and also further health problems to your mouth, but all of these can and should be addressed immediately by getting a replacement. A partial denture may suffice and will do an admirable job, but if you are looking for something more permanent, you should look into the possibility of getting a dental implant fitted into your jaw bone. An implant takes over from your original root, is strong, free from infection and once it has been placed, it will be with you to the end. The process is a simple one: a laser will burn a small hole through the gum tissue and into your jaw. Then, a small titanium rod is screwed in to take the place of the original tooth’s root. Now you have the perfect foundation to attach the replacement crown to, or in fact a dental bridge in the case of multiple tooth loss. It is because of how refined the treatment has become that you can have several implants placed in a day if required which ironically, is what a lot of people are using to keep their dentures in. Costs have tumbled over the years, but your dentist will be only too willing to spread the costs with a payment plan but that’s really something to think about later on. The important thing is to get you patched up and back onto the streets ofLondonso that you can get back to a normal life.
London is awash with glamour and so it rather expects you, its tenant, to be the same: from the way you dress, the way you wear your hair to the cut of your jib, and it can be important too, as looking your best can just give you the nod in a photo finish when getting ahead at work and socially. Of course, this includes first impressions too and one of the first things another person sees in you when you meet is your smile- this too needs to radiate. Lucky for you then the shops are stuffed with goodies to make this happen for you. Whitening your teeth is big business right now and it’s the perfect way to get your teeth pearly white. You can start easy at first by using bleaching toothpastes and you will see the difference after just a few days use. You can buy touch-up pens, bleaching strips and brushes that will tone you up in no time but the product that flies off the shelves is the DIY bleaching kit, complete with bleaching trays and agents and you get to do it at your own speed at home. The other alternative is to get it done by your dentist: you can be set up with kits at home, but the real rock and roller of teeth whitening has got to be laser bleaching, cheap, brilliant results and you are in and out in just an hour. So come on, there’s plenty to choose from so get up to speed!
If ever you have suffered from tooth decay and even tooth loss in London and you need to be patched up, chances are you will have to be fitted with some form of crown to repair what you have lost. Serious tooth decay can lead to all manner of problems: to counter it, you’ll need to have a root canal in order to save your tooth, followed by the fitting of a crown. Similarly, if the tooth is lost all together and you decide to go down the dental implant route, then a crown will be fitted onto the implant. What type of crown you have fitted is down to you and your dentist but it is pretty much determined by where the problem has occurred. For instance, anything that has gone wrong at the back of the mouth will require a sturdy replacement in order to cope with the pressures of everyday chewing. The two crowns that fit the bill are made either from gold or, if you want to keep the natural look, then you may want to go for a porcelain-over-metal crown- both are designed for strength. However, if you have suffered damage at the front of you mouth, the repaired tooth needn’t require such strength in the crown. You can now opt for a full porcelain crown which will compliment the rest of your teeth. Or, as is considered to look cool these days, you can go for gold again- just to show off a bit and give your teeth a bit of street credibility.
