Is it too Late for you to Get Braces?

Often, people will get braces fitted when they are children or teenagers. It’s a popular treatment once all of the adult teeth have come through and a dentist can see that some work is going to need to be done. If you didn’t get braces as a youngster though, it isn’t too late. Braces are a good idea if you want to fix your teeth so that they are straighter, closer together or have a better bite. You can get braces or another kind of orthodontic treatment to fix the problem at any age via a private dental clinic. You will have the luxury of being able to choose any...

Ouch! Being Scared of the Dental Drill!

Some people have had painful encounters with the dental “drill” because they weren’t properly numbed or at all. Unsurprisingly, if this has happened you are likely to feel terrified of the “drill”.

Dentures are used to maintain a good appearance and, more practically, to help you chew your food, but this presents some problems. The chewing can put a lot of stress on the security of your dentures, resulting in them steadily loosening over time, becoming increasingly bothersome and irritating. Secure dentures and good oral hygiene may not seem to be particularly connected but they are, in fact, interrelated.
