Considerations before transforming your smile in Egham
At your local Egham dentist, we offer a wide range of general dentistry including fillings, oral health checks, root canal treatments, and more.
What you may not know is that we also offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments including, but not limited to: complete smile makeovers, tooth whitening, veneers and adult orthodontics.
As the new year gets into full swing, you might be considering some cosmetic dentistry. It might be your reward for quitting smoking, or starting healthy new habits?
Perhaps you have always put off having your smile made over because of other financial commitments, or because you were always worried about having it done, but now, everything is in place and it feels like the right time to progress? This is fantastic news for you and we'll be pleased to help you get the A list smile you deserve. However, here at your local Egham dentist, we always put you first, so if you are considering cosmetic dentistry, it is worth thinking about whether or not it is right for you first.
Cosmetic dentistry can transform a person's life, giving them the confidence they never had, enabling them to be the person they always wanted to be. But it isn't right for everyone. We will always ensure you have a detailed and lengthy consultation with us to ensure that any treatment is the right option for you, but in the meantime, please consider the following to help you decide if it is the right time for you to transform your smile:
Cosmetic dentistry is more affordable now than it ever was before, and there are payment plans and various treatment price points available. Before you decide on cosmetic dentistry it is a great idea to do a bit of research to get an idea of different prices for different types of treatment. You should also be aware that certain treatments may need maintenance over the years, costing a little more money. When you visit us for your consultation we can offer you a completely transparent price plan to give you an idea of individual costs for your treatment plan.
Why "healthy" habits can cause problems you don't expect.
At this time of the year, most people are still going strong with their resolutions for the new year. This is great news, as it means a lot of our local Egham dental patients are enjoying a healthier life. Common resolutions you might be pursuing include quitting alcohol, quitting smoking, exercising more, enjoying a healthier diet, and perhaps taking up a new hobby.
What you may not realise, is that although these new changes are healthy for your body, they could have a detrimental effect on your oral health. No need to light up, eat a chocolate bar, or quit that new sport just yet though; these tips will help ensure your new healthy habits can go hand in hand with a well maintained healthy smile:
Adding juices to your daily routine is beneficial to your body, because increasing your intake of fruit and vegetables can only ever be a good thing. The only issue you may struggle with, is the effect of juices on your teeth. Juices, or particularly, high acid juices containing fruit, can attack the teeth and damage the enamel, causing the teeth to be more sensitive. The way to balance this out, is to try and opt for more vegetable based juices, to drink your juice through a straw, and to follow your juice with water.
Exercise is an important part of a healthy life, but certain sports could be risky for your teeth. Rugby, cricket, football and any sport where contact or balls are involved could cause a hazard for your teeth if they are not protected. Teeth and gums can be injured easily in certain sports, but a personalised mouthguard from your Egham dentist can help you avoid a dental emergency. Personalised mouthguards made to fit your specific teeth and gums are known to be more effective in protecting the mouth during sports.
Smoking is a really, really bad habit and kills over 4 million people across the world every year, according to recent studies.
This isn't new information for anyone, and you're especially likely to understand its implications for your health, if you're trying to quit.
Smoking has endless bad effects on the body, including your dental health. Dental problems that can be caused by smoking are:
● Stained teeth
● Salivary gland infections
● Unpleasant breath
● Plaque build up
● Bone loss
● The potential for white patches in the mouth
● Gum disease risk is increased
● Healing can take longer
● Dental implants are less likely to succeed
● An increased risk of oral cancers
Smoking & Gum Disease
Smoking can increase the risk of gum disease and is known to have an effect on the cells in the gums. This effect on the cells is negative and can make a smoker more likely to get gum disease and other infections. Healing is also impaired. Unfortunately, gum disease can get really serious and lead to tooth loss and a loss of bone and gums in the mouth.
Smoking & Oral Cancer
Smoking is known to be a leading cause of many cancers including lung cancer, bladder cancer, oral cancer, kidney cancer and stomach cancer, and causes an increased risk in many other types as well. Oral cancer in particular is widely attributed to smoking, and statistics show that over 90% of oral cancer in the UK alone, is attributed to lifestyle habits like smoking.
What To Do About It
If you are struggling to kick the habit following a new year's resolution to quit, hopefully this extra information has helped to reignite your desire to quit. If you're feeling a little stuck, or you're just looking into quitting, there are many different things you can do to help yourself become smoke free.
Speak To Your GP Or Pharmacy
Your GP or pharmacy can advise you on different products and support services that will help you quit smoking. There will be specific services for your area, which may involve support like free cessation products (depending on your entitlement), support groups, leaflets and regular breath checks to check the chemical levels in your body.
