What types of treatments are available at Bhawani’s Dental Care?
The misalignment of teeth has been an issue bothering humanity since ancient times. As technology and dentistry, specifically orthodontics, have developed the unsightly headgears have been replaced by the braces with brackets we know today. Some patients tend to not get orthodontic treatments when they need to, often due to aesthetic concerns associated with braces. This is not a wise decision for a variety of reasons: first of all, orthodontic conditions can increase in severity if left untreated. Secondly, modern technology allows the implementation of orthodontic treatments that are barely visible – one of them is Invisalign. Invisalign is one of the most well known brands of invisible aligners. These are custom made “moulds” of a patient’s dental arches. A series of these is made during the treatment, which apply the necessary pressure on the teeth incrementally to minimise discomfort. A great benefit of Invisalign is that it is made entirely out of a transparent plastic, therefore, it is hardly noticeable by other people. If you think you would benefit from it, look no further – our dentists in Culcheth are accredited Invisalign providers.
Tooth loss is an incredibly frustrating condition that is not only capable of impairing chewing, biting, speech and other everyday activities but can also result in mental health issues. The primary causes of tooth loss are tooth decay, periodontal disease (gum disease) and injuries. Tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacterial overgrowth in the oral cavity as a result of diets high in sugar, which are quite prevalent in the Western world. To prevent these conditions, brush and floss your teeth twice a day and use an antibacterial mouthwash as well. To prevent injuries, wear mouthguards when engaging in high-risk activities, such as contact sports. However, if tooth loss has already occurred, try and get treatment as soon as possible to increase the likelihood of success. Dental implants do a great job at replacing teeth. These are screw-like metal appliances, which are surgically inserted into your jawbone resulting in their subsequent integration of the surrounding tissues and the bone. This makes dental implants a very resilient, durable and long-lasting solution. Contact our dentistry in Culcheth to find out more!
Our teeth are constantly exposed to a range of factors that can induce teeth discolouration. These include dietary sources, such as coffee, tea, coloured soft drinks, red wine, etc. It can also occur as a result of dental plaque, which if neglected can calcify and form calculus. It can also be a result of certain medications, antibiotics and smoking. Aging also plays a role in tooth discolouration. If you would like to have a whiter smile, at Bhawani’s Dental Care we offer different types of teeth whitening treatments: you can opt for the in-surgery option, where a special gel is applied on your teeth, which is subsequently UV-light irradiated and whitens your teeth in an hour. You may also choose the at-home whitening option, where custom made trays filled with a whitening gel are made for you, which you have to wear for specific periods of time.
