Wave Goodbye to Your Dental Woes!

Issues with your teeth are problematic on so many levels. Certain issues result in constant discomfort that cannot be ignored. Others will give you excruciating pain in unpredictable spurts. Then the problems that aren’t painful tend to knock your self-confidence, affecting your physical appearance and making you feel self-conscious. Luckily, the world of dentistry has come on leaps and bounds in the past few decades and nowadays there’s generally a relatively simple fix for most problems, whether they’re to do with health, hygiene, or aesthetics. Here are just a few ways that you can wave goodbye to your dental woes!

Don’t Wait Until Your Annual Checkup

Ideally, you should see your dentist once a year regardless of whether you feel your teeth are in good condition or not. This annual checkup will allow your dentist to take a thorough examination of your mouth, identifying any existing problems or issues that could potentially develop. The necessary actions can then be taken to prevent any damage to your teeth or gums. However, if you have any kind of problem or change to your teeth, you don’t have to wait until your next annual checkup to consult your dentist about it. Book in for an extra checkup. This means issues can be rectified before you begin to feel pain or discomfort.



Dental Implants

There are various reasons that people lose teeth. Common problems that result in tooth loss include tooth decay and injuries or trauma. However, once you lose a tooth, you don’t have to simply accept that you have a gap. This could cause issues with chewing and may also negatively affect your physical appearance. In this situation, Dental Implants become the perfect solution to replace these missing teeth. Not only will they be made to look just like the rest of your natural teeth (right down to colour matching), but they will also behave in a similar way to your natural teeth when you are chewing and eating. A titanium post is implanted into the jaw and then supports a crown, bridge, or denture.

Invisible Braces

Another issue that makes people self-conscious about their smile is their tooth alignment. If you have naturally wonky or misaligned teeth, you might find yourself avoiding smiling in public or covering your mouth while you’re speaking. However, there are ways to straighten your teeth without resorting to the train-track style traditional braces that most people associate with teenagers. There are various types of invisible braces that are fitted behind your teeth. They do an equally effective job but are much more discreet.

Tooth Whitening

Not everyone has naturally pearly white teeth. But they can be achieved! Avoid over-the-counter whitening treatments. They may not whiten teeth evenly, resulting in a patchy or uneven look. They might also damage your teeth, increasing their sensitivity. If you do want your teeth whitened, go professional. Ask your dentist what options they have available.

These are perhaps the most common dental issues, but as you can see all hope isn’t lost if you do begin to experience them. Follow the above advice to put your dental problems behind you!
