Dental Decay

Tooth decay happens when the enamel and dentine of a tooth become softened by acid attack after you have eaten or drunk anything containing sugars.

Diet

A diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and fresh fruit and vegetables can help to prevent gum disease. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss and cause bad breath.

Gum Disease

It remains the major cause of tooth loss in adults but with proper oral care it can be slowed down to a rate that should allow you to keep most of your teeth for life.

My Fear Of The Dentist

Being ‘afraid of the dentist’ may mean different things to different people. It will probably help if you work out just what it is that worries you most.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. It can improve features of your teeth.

Visiting The Hygienist

The hygienist’s main work is to prevent and treat gum disease including professionally cleaning your teeth. This is usually called ‘scaling and polishing’.
