The importance of good oral hygiene

July 13, 2021


A good oral hygiene routine, instilled into us from childhood is essential in maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Brushing effectively, changing your toothbrush regularly, flossing after meals and using a good mouthwash will help keep your mouth clean and healthy. A good dental hygiene routine and good oral health helps retain your natural teeth for as long as possible in life. Visiting your dentist here at Hilton Dental Clinic on a regular basis is important in making sure that your dental hygiene routine is sufficient, that your teeth are clean and your gums are healthy and that there are no dental issues present that you may be unaware of.

Tooth loss and how to deal with it

Poor oral hygiene and not visiting your dentist on a regular basis can result in many different dental issues which, if left untreated, can cause cavities and tooth decay which ultimately result in tooth loss. Tooth loss is an extremely uncomfortable situation to find yourself in and although it is considered a natural part of old age it can be avoided by visiting your dentist regularly and looking after your teeth to the best of your ability. If you do experience tooth loss, whether it is as a result of poor oral hygiene, or as a result of old age or even if it occurs as a result of a physical accident or trauma to your mouth which has led to your teeth falling out, speak to us at our clinic.

Dental implants as a tooth replacement therapy

There are many different options for treating tooth loss and advances in dental technology have made these treatment options convenient for modern hectic lifestyles. They are more comfortable so that you don't have to worry about them, and also more accessible. There is a huge amount of information out there to help you make the right decision with your dentist. Dental implants Nottingham have proven to be a popular choice of tooth replacement therapy amongst patients and dentists alike. Dental implants have many different advantages namely that they are small titanium components which fuse to the alveolar bone in the jaw and then become a permanent fixture in the mouth, so they are reliable and practical and provide comfort as well as a pleasing aesthetic quality to your mouth all at the same time.

Dental implants Nottingham work by acting as root replacements so that the prosthetic option that you choose for your tooth or teeth, whether it is a crown or whether it is a set of dentures, will attach securely to the implant and be fixed firmly in your mouth providing you with comfort, confidence and ease. Speak to us without delay and find out more about dental implants and how they can help you today.
