At our dental practice in W1, we have aimed to address all areas of dentistry that contribute to patient care. There are many issues that are not always cavities, or aesthetic problems, but can still be damaging to health and self-esteem. We want to provide a dental service that can help with all dental issues, and work to provide a solution that you are satisfied with. Preventative dentistry is about solving issues, before they become a greater problem.
Many issues can be resolved with good dental hygiene. Poor dental hygiene can result in bad breath, and discolouration, and can be the starting point for many dental issues. Our dentists will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to maintain the correct dental hygiene routine, along with brushing techniques, flossing, and interdental brushes.
Bruxism, the symptom of grinding one’s teeth together, can be caused by a multitude of factors. Stress and anxiety can be a cause, but the misalignment of the jaw, or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ disorder), is another large factor. Please feel free to see one of our dentists at our dental practice in W1, who will advise you on the best course of action for your treatment. As part of all our preventative dentistry measures, we advise you to visit us as early as possible, in order to prevent worse symptoms arriving over time.
One of the most common issues, sensitive teeth can be a burden. One of the causes of sensitive teeth can be dental erosion, (which can be caused by jaw problems). This can also be caused by tooth brushing habits, and eating too many highly acidic foods, which cause the enamel of the tooth to wear away. If you are feeling symptoms of sensitive teeth, such as pain from eating hot or cold food, then it is crucial that you see a dentist straight away.
Pregnancy can affect your dental hygiene. Due to the increase in hormones, the gums can be heavily affected, causing swelling and soreness, known as ‘pregnancy gingivitis’. The gums are also more susceptible to plaque, which can lead to further inflammation and bleeding. As pregnancy can be a worrisome time, we recommend visiting us to dispel any anxieties about your dental health, and we may be able to recognise issues before they become serious. Our dental practice in W1 will provide you with the comfort and respect you deserve.
It is important that any dental problems are dealt with as soon as they are recognised. At our dental practice, we have ensured that our service is as transparent as we can make it, as we want you to be satisfied with our treatment. We recommend that you come in for check-ups regularly, as this is the only way to ensure your teeth and gums stay in peak condition. By following our advice for good dental hygiene on our website, you can also reduce the risk of any issues that may arise in the future.
