Could flossing relieve sensitive teeth?Emergency dentistry patients looking for a way to improve their oral health should floss regularly in a bid to protect their teeth.

Carrying out the act on a daily basis could reduce the risk of developing tooth decay and plaque in difficult-to-reach areas inside the mouth.

In addition, regular flossing ensures the protective layer of enamel surrounding the teeth is maintained with the removal of excess food and drink.

Cosmetic Dentistry Guide urges members of the public to uphold satisfactory standards of at-home dental care in a bid to prevent gingivitis and wider health conditions.

Researchers have previously discovered links between flossing and a limited threat of diabetes, strokes and arthritis.

Colgate recommends that people carrying out the act curve the string around the base of each tooth while ensuring to clean beneath the gum line.

As well as this, the organisation advises health-conscious individuals to use flossing alongside a well-established hygiene routine. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800607307-ADNFCR

Emergency dentistry news: Flossing prevents tooth loss

Thu

Emergency dentistry news: Flossing prevents tooth lossGood oral health maintained by flossing may reduce the likelihood of undergoing emergency dentistry and limit the chances of a stroke, new research has suggested.

Japanese researchers have found that the possibility of having a stroke is linked to tooth loss occurring as a result of poor dental hygiene.

The study, conducted at Hiroshima University and reported on the Cosmetic Dentistry Guide website, found that people with less than 24 of their own teeth were faced with a 60 per cent higher chance of suffering from a stroke than those who had more natural teeth.

According to the website, a number of serious illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease can be linked to dental health and people with unhealthy teeth and gums are also at greater risk of requiring emergency dental procedures.

Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Foundation, also attributes a healthy diet to better dental hygiene.

He said: "A diet rich in vitamins, minerals and fresh produce can help to prevent gum disease, a disease which can in turn, pose more significant risks to your overall health."ADNFCR-2621-ID-800483300-ADNFCR

Dental veneers ‘could be a great way to brighten teeth’

Thu

Veneers can give teeth a natural look, which are free from stains or dislocation.Dentistry patients have been told of the advantages of dental veneers over other methods of cosmetic dental restorations.

A Worldental.org writer noted that one of the positive points of opting for this procedure is that it will give a tooth a natural look, something which was lacking in dentist techniques of the past.

They explained: "Being attached to the surface of the tooth, veneers successfully imitate the light-conducting properties of natural enamel."

Furthermore, digital veneers are able to be protected from dislocation and stains too, which counter-acts the spots and loss of colour recently seen in cosmetic materials of the past.

This is because veneers are designed with a vitreous ceramic material, which "is not subject to any appearance of spots or discoloration", the expert concluded.

Cosmetic Dentistry Guide recently regarded dental veneers as "the ultimate smile makeover", which are used to enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth by being "cemented" to the front of them.

Thumb sucking ’causes dental damage’

Mon

Babies should not be encouraged to suck their thumbs.

Parents have been warned their children could be causing damage to their teeth through sucking their thumbs.
