CQR Dentures, A New Concept For Denture Wearers

Posted on 28 June, 2016  in Dental Care

For many years traditional dentures have been a fixed size and tend to be awkward once fitted. The effects of traditional dentures have been known to restrict the daily eating and drinking of various foods and drinks, and even limit the types of food a person can eat; they have also caused mouth ulcers by excessive rubbing on the gums.

The good news is that CQR is now here. Dentures can now be uniquely customised to fit the dimensions of the patients mouth, so the CQR dentures will fit comfortably in the wearers mouth and won’t restrict the day to day eating and drinking habits.

This means that denture wearers now can use less fixer gel and have more freedom in their daily lives. as well as eating the foods they want with a comfortable and fixed bite, that will enable the jaw muscles to work more effectively when chewing.

The Electric Toothbrush v Standard

Posted on 29 March, 2016  in Dental Care

Lots of people are using electric toothbrushes these days, but the sales for the standard toothbrushes is still stable and people still use them. There are benefits to using a standard toothbrush, such as no cost of the unit and no cost of using; when you’re done, take the old head off, discard it and recycle the plastic handle to minimise the waste.

The high-powered toothbrushes like sonic speed brushing are great and will do the job they say they will, but they are bound to damage the gums over time due to the harsh brushing from the faster speeds, so realistically they should not be used daily and a mix of standard and sonic would probably be the better choice.

The cost alone of most electronic toothbrushes is dreadful, and replacing the heads can also be costly over time. So if you are going to get one, take a look at what suits you best; there are battery powered brushes and rechargeable units available, and the battery powered brushes usually cost less and still do a good enough job to clean your teeth but eventually the batteries will need to be replaced or recharged if rechargeable ones have been used. The electric toothbrushes with an integrated battery unit will need to be put on charge after use, and you will have to take them off charge after they have finished.

Whatever type of toothbrush you choose, see what works best for you, and also what is affordable.

Emergency Dental Clinics

Posted on 14 February, 2016  in Dental Care

If you suddenly have a dental emergency and have to go to an out of hour’s dental clinic, you should be able to find one in your local area if a city or somewhere in the town. These are usually private companies that are part run by the NHS and you will generally just pay a prescription charge and a check up and treatment fee of about £20 (not London). If you are working full time, you might not be eligible for NHS treatment and they may charge you a lot more than £20, and you won’t always be guaranteed to get treatment if they have assessed you over the phone and determined that your problem is not severe enough to count as an emergency; you usually can’t walk in and expect treatment as they usually assess over the phone and you are more likely to get turned away. It’s only a good option if you can’t actually talk over the phone and have to write something down for them as you answer their questions that way; don’t expect any sympathy from them though if you try to get there-and-then treatment using that approach.

Usually if you fell over and chipped your tooth and there is some blood they won’t offer you treatment, same if you have toothache and there are no loose teeth; they usually tell you too book an appointment with your regular dentist and wait for that appointment.

Once you get an appointment with them, they expect you to arrive 15 minutes before your appointment to fill in the paperwork they need, but your appointment could be any-time from 10 minutes to an hour and a half after your appointment time depending on when you go there and availability of their staff. It’s quite common for them to ignore patients when they are short staffed and have to take a break; just be glad there is a service that can help you and don’t create a scene if you do end up waiting more than an hour.
