Tooth decay is going to always be an ever present threat to you in London and if you aren’t on your guard, it will slip in and do damage; this damage can be anything from rotting your tooth badly to actually losing it altogether. Whatever you go through, you will need some form of repair work to retain a beautiful smile and more importantly, to retain the longevity of your oral health. At some junction there is a very good chance that the repair work will involve a crown and if you want to keep it natural to fit in with the rest of your teeth, then you should opt for a porcelain crown. They come in two forms; the first is a full porcelain crown and though they aren’t that strong, they look lovely once they are in: the other is a porcelain-over-metal crown. These can handle a battle and are very strong: where both are placed in the mouth will be a decision made by your dentist as to what work they will have to do, but you can sleep easy in the knowledge your smile and your oral health will be in tact once they are fitted.

A lot of people get scared off by the idea of dentures in the city of London and that is pretty much down to how they have served older generations in the past, but the simple fact is that you may have to bite the bullet and go for this option if you have suffered some form of tooth loss. However, it isn’t all that bad and if you take a look around, dentures are coming back into fashion in a big way, especially partial ones; as modern dental treatments of gum disease have got better- so people are losing fewer teeth. Partials are so easy to wear and even easier to maintain; they are cheap and thanks to a revolution in what they are being made from, they look more natural than ever they did. This also goes for full dentures and combined with improvements in materials used to construct them, cements and the use of implants, this combination has made them incredibly stable when they are being worn. You should never look back in anger at dentures; just embrace them as always being a part of the future and a way of promoting your oral health.

Just when you thought you had come through the worst of your problems with your teeth in the city of London, from baby to teenager, along comes your wisdom teeth. However, get through this and you can take heart from the fact that there are no more of the blighters going to make an appearance after this. Wisdoms come through anywhere between 17-23 years of age, that is just a rough guess, because people are different. The reason most folk have problem with these teeth has a little to do with evolution; in most mouths, there simply isn’t the room to come through, and so a lot of people find that these teeth can grow in all directions, become impacted and maybe never appear. For others, they will have to go through the teething problem all over again as they start to come through the gums; it can be painful either way. Generally, hidden wisdom teeth are removed and this would normally be done in hospital where all four are taken out in one go; it’s a delicate operation and painful after, but with some painkillers and a medicated mouthwash, you will only have to endure it for about a week until the stitches come out. When these teeth break through the gums, they will be sore and again, painkillers and a mouthwash will help, though you can also clove oil and soothing gels to help temper the pain.

When a baby is born, there is obviously a lot to think about as a parent in central London in order that they get the best healthy start in life- diet being one of them. This involves breast feeding at first and then light feeding later on, but during these early days, you as a parent may well do a lot of bottle feeding to comfort the child during sleep, or use the bottle if you can no longer breast feed them. At some point, the teeth will come through and this is the most important moment of your child’s oral health and it will be down to you to ensure the teeth are clean. The milk in the bottle you give them and the syrups you might dip a dummy into, will leave deposits on the teeth and if it isn’t wiped or brushed away, bacteria will set about causing decay in the teeth. Now if this is not addressed, either by you or by a dentist (the baby can be fitted with sealants even at this stage), you may well hinder their future oral health. These first teeth set up the secondary teeth and if your baby gets decay set in because of bottle feeding, your child may well have problems in the future.
