    What Is Gum Disease?

    The post What Is Gum Disease? appeared first on Hope Park Dental.

    What is Gum Disease?

    Gum disease, or periodontal disease, starts with plaque accumulating in the gap between the tooth and gum.

    Plaque is made up of bacteria and this causes inflammation. Patients are aware of the gums becoming red and swollen and may bleed easily.

    Although inflammation is a normal part of the body’s defence it can cause serious damage. If the inflammation is left untreated it can spread down the root damaging the supporting bone causing mobility and tooth loss.

    Do I have Gum Disease?

    Gum disease is very prevalent. Most people in the UK will suffer from gum inflammation now and again. It’s estimated 10% of the population are affected by the more serious and damaging type of gum disease.

    Patients can be unaware they have gum disease and regular dental examinations are important to monitor the gum health.

    How is gum disease treated?

    An examination by a dentist or hygienist is required to assess the gums and formulate a treatment plan. Initial treatment will include showing you techniques for removing plaque and keeping the gum healthy at home. Changes in your lifestyle can help prevent gum disease and they will also be explored. Scaling is performed to remove the deposits of plaque on the teeth and, if required, down the root surfaces. It is then important to have the gums reviewed and the cleaning maintained over regular visits.

    Take care of your children’s teeth this Easter.

    The post Take care of your children’s teeth this Easter. appeared first on Hope Park Dental.

    Easter can be challenging time for parents to ensure their kids are not eating too much sugar.

    Sugar causes dental caries (tooth decay) a softening in the enamel of the tooth, resulting in cavities.

    Chocolate eggs and other sweet Easter treats are in abundance at this time of year and although it is important for our children to enjoy some treats here are some tips to reduce their chance of developing any dental problems.

    Eating chocolate at meal times –

    Keeping the eating of the chocolate around meal times reduces the chance of tooth decay. This is because the more frequent sugar is eaten, the harder it is for the mouth to recover from the sugar attacks.

    Keeping it around meal times prevents snacking and grazing on sweet treats.

    An alternative Easter egg hunt –

    Rather than hiding lots of chocolate Easter eggs, why not hide plastic or card/paper eggs and have a chocolate Easter egg prize at the end of the hunt.

    This means the children can still enjoy a fun game without collecting too many sugary treats.

    Alternative Easter Eggs –

    Why not try hard boiling some eggs and decorating them using some paints. This is a fun activity to occupy them in the Easter holidays and takes the focus away from chocolate eggs.

    Dark chocolate instead of milk or white chocolate –

    Dark chocolate contains less sugar, also usually less is required to satisfy a chocolate craving. There are also “Free From” eggs that are lower in sugar available, meaning they can still enjoy chocolate treats, but with less of an effect on their teeth.

    As always ensure that your children follow a good oral hygiene routine, especially around times of the year where they may be more prone to developing tooth decay.

    Give it up for your teeth! Tooth friendly Lent ideas.

    The post Give it up for your teeth! Tooth friendly Lent ideas. appeared first on Hope Park Dental.

    Whether for religious or purely personal reasons, Lent for many is both a time of reflection as well as a time of year in which we traditionally abstain from something for a month, often with a view to improving our health in the process.

    And given our tendency to overindulge over Christmas, sweet snacks are often top of the list of things to give up. With a little strategic planning, you can use Lent to make some simple changes to your habits that will not just help your health in general, but will also benefit your teeth and gums.

    Chocolate

    One of the most popular foods to abstain from in Lent is chocolate. When it comes to your teeth, there is absolutely no doubt that the majority of chocolates, given their high sugar content, are better off avoided. If you find yourself getting your sugar hit from chocolate, why not see if you can do a month without?

    Sweets

    It goes without say that sweets are another great choice for your annual period of abstinence. Sticky, sugary sweets tend to leave residue in the harder to reach gaps in your teeth, causing high levels of acid build-up which can wreak havoc on your teeth and gums and lead to no end of problems, especially tooth decay.

    Alcohol

    Miss dry January? Lent may be another chance to avoid alcoholic drinks for a few weeks. Most alcoholic drinks directly cause dental decay and some can even stain your teeth. While also helping you reap the financial benefits you might even save some brain cells !

    Cigarettes

    Of course, it’s not just food that people chose to abstain from. For many, Lent is a great time to have a go at giving up smoking. Aside from the well-documented benefits to your overall health that stopping smoking offers, there are also tremendous benefits for your teeth and gums. Not only do the chemicals present in cigarette smoke cause harm and staining to the teeth, the reduction in oxygenated blood in circulation also means that it can take significantly longer for your gums to heal after dental surgery and reduce the effectiveness of some treatments. Stop smoking in March and it may be possible to quit completely.

    Is Bad Breath Getting In The Way Of Your Valentines?

    The post Is Bad Breath Getting In The Way Of Your Valentines? appeared first on Hope Park Dental.

    Bad breath (halitosis) can be socially embarrassing and can affect confidence in building relationships, particularly romantic, with others.

    Studies show decreased self confidence and insecurity in social and intimate relations. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16451502

    Bad breath isn’t something you (or your partner) have to suffer with.

    There can be several reasons a person suffers from bad breath.

    Poor Oral Hygiene
    Certain kinds of oral bacteria cause bad breath. This is another reason to ensure you have a diligent oral hygiene routine. Brushing your teeth twice a day (we recommend using an electric toothbrush) using fluoride tooth paste, either flossing or using inter dental brushes once a day and also ensuring you are keeping your tongue clean as it can harbour bacteria and food debris. You can keep your tongue clean using your toothbrush or a tongue scraper. If you follow this routine you will significantly reduce the chance of bad breath.

    Oral Disease
    The bacteria from tooth decay and gum disease can also cause bad breath. It is important to come and see your dentist for your regular check ups so that any signs of oral disease can be spotted and treated.

    Dry Mouth
    Salivahelps cleanse your mouth. A dry mouth could cause bad breath. Simply drinking more water can help and it is advised you should drink about three litres of water per day. Regular use of some medicines can also cause a dry mouth. Ask your GP or Pharmacist if the medicines you are regularly taking could be causing this. Oral sprays and gels may help, but most importantly stay hydrated!

    Smoking
    There are so many more serious risks associated with smoking. However it is worth mentioning that smoking causes bad breath from the smell of the tobacco and smoke, reduces saliva flow and increases risk of gum disease. We urge you not to smoke and we can give you advice and contacts for smoking cessation.

    To summarise do not let bad breath control your life or love life.

    Practice good oral hygiene and come to see your dentist regularly. If you think we can help you with any of these points please get in touch.
