Welcome to the world of dental implants! A missing tooth is no longer a big problem. If it was knocked out in an accident, or has fallen out with poor oral hygiene, there is a solution for you. Dental Implants have been increasing in popularity over the last few decades. Now you will see this treatment advertised in many dental practices. The benefits of replacing missing teeth with artificial teeth are: to give a more pleasing and attractive smile, being able to eat and chew food again, to speak with more clarity and to retain the current bone structure. Yes! There are many reasons why dental implants have left so many people raving about them. A missing tooth can also be replaced with a denture, a removable artificial tooth but if you want something natural-looking and permanent then a dental implant is for you.
It is worth making sure you are happy with your dentist. If not, there are many around if you want to change dentist. Does the receptionist greet you with a smile and answer any questions you have?

Have you heard that dentists now screen for oral cancer when you have your check-up? It is because of the rising number of people diagnosed with mouth cancer each year. It only takes a few minutes and is included alongside the standard checks during the appointment. Yet another reason why a regular check-up is a good idea!
What can happen when cavities start to form? The enamel on our teeth is not replaceable naturally, so once it has eroded fillings are needed to fill up the hole to avoid further erosion. It is therefore, imperative to look after your teeth to avoid such problems. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste to ensure teeth are clean and sugar is removed from coating the teeth. For extra vigilance, flossing is recommended to remove any plaque that might have started to build up in between the teeth.
