Sensitivity

January 10th, 2018

Many people suffer from sensitive teeth which can mean anything from slight pain to having severe discomfort that can continue for several hours.

Sensitivity can start at any time and can be an early warning sign of a more serious dental problem.

Some causes of sensitivity may be:

Toothbrush abrasion – caused by brushing too hard.
Dental erosion – a loss of tooth enamel caused by acidic food and drinks.
Gum recession – gums can naturally recede exposing the roots of the tooth.
Gum disease – tartar and the build up of plaque cause gums to recede and can destroy the support of a tooth.
Grinding your teeth – a habit which can damage the enamel.
A cracked tooth or filling.

Using a sensitive toothpaste twice a day may ease the pain of sensitive teeth and an electric toothbrush will help to avoid over brushing.

If you would like more help or advice on sensitivity contact the surgery on 0115 9602717.

Dental Emergency ? Need Urgent Temporary Treatment?

November 17th, 2017

Here at Tavistock Drive Dental Care we are always aiming to improve the services we can offer.

Many people whom do not have a regular dentist call the surgery looking for urgent assistance following a dental emergency such as a broken tooth, lost fillings or a dental infection.

As such DR. Rajah is currently offering an appointment for emergency dental care, whereby we will look to provide a temporary solution to relieve pain or temporise a broken tooth.

This appointment will cost £80.00 payable at the time of booking.

If you wish to book an appointment please call the surgery on 01159602717 and our reception team will be happy to assist.

Please Note: If you would like to register as an ongoing patient after this time you will need a full initial examination (See New Patient Information)

CLEANING TEETH.

November 15th, 2017

You should thoroughly remove plaque from your teeth (and dentures if you wear them) at least twice a day.

You need a small headed medium texture toothbrush and a fluoride toothpaste. We sell recommended manual and electric toothbrushes at Tavistock Drive Dental Care.

To clean between your teeth use interdental brushes, tape or floss at least once every day. Your dentist or hygienist will recommend the best product to suit you.

Electric Toothbrushes are very effective for removing plaque and are also ideal for people who find it difficult to grip a manual toothbrush handle.

Cut down on how often you have sugary food and drinks and try to have these as part of your meal, rather than snacking

To check how effectively you are removing plaque from your teeth use a Disclosing Tablet after you usual brushing. This will stain any remaining plaque with a harmless dye showing you any areas which need closer attention.

A further brushing will remove the stained plaque.

Visit your dentist and hygienist regularly for advice and maintenance care.

SENSITIVE TEETH.

September 27th, 2017

Tooth sensitivity can be caused by brushing teeth too vigorously, which can lead to dentine exposure and damage to the gums.   The symptoms are pain and discomfort, usually with cold or sweet substances, around the affected areas.  If you think you suffer from this call us at Tavistock Drive Dental Care on 0115 9602717 and a correct treatment and maintenance programme can be arranged with you.  We may also suggest a visit to our hygienist who will advise on how to clean your teeth to avoid further damage.

GRINDING YOUR TEETH.

August 23rd, 2017

Grinding your teeth in your sleep is very common, with many people not aware that they do this.

You may have woken up with discomfort or pain in your jaw, shoulders or neck and not known what may have caused it.

Your dentist can tell you if there is any abnormal wear and tear due to grinding your teeth and if it has damaged the enamel.

To prevent you from grinding your teeth your dentist can make you a night guard to wear. This is an appliance that keeps the teeth apart and allows the muscles to relax in a normal position.

If you feel that this might be a problem, visit us at Tavistock Drive Dental Care and we will be happy to advise on the best solution.
