Treating A Broken Front Tooth
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
2w ago
A visible broken tooth certainly needs to be treated, but what is the best way to do this? Our front teeth are more susceptible to damage than teeth at the back of our mouth, for example if we fall or are hit in the mouth by a football or similar. Then it’s likely to be our front teeth that take the full impact and problems can result. Accidents like this and perhaps even risky habits like opening packets with the teeth, mean that there may be occasions when our front teeth break or chip and need to be treated. It is never a good idea not to treat a broken tooth, wherever in the mouth it is as ..read more

How Much Discomfort Should You Expect From A Dental Implant Procedure?
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
1M ago
Myths sometimes develop around new and sometimes misunderstood treatments. Our Chelmsford dentists answer this genuine question…. It is probably only in relatively recent years that people have even started to become aware of dental implants. For some this will have been because celebrities have had the treatment, while others may have heard some of the ‘horror stories’ in the media of procedures that have gone wrong when patients have travelled abroad hoping for cheaper versions of this increasingly popular tooth replacement. Even though implants are now more widely known, there are still som ..read more

Five Things You Might Be Doing Wrong When Brushing Your Teeth
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
1M ago
Brushing your teeth regularly is great, but making basic mistakes can undo some of the benefits. Brushing your teeth both morning and night is the bedrock of good oral health care. There are other factors that will improve this too of course, including a more tooth friendly diet and the use of dental floss, plus regular monitoring by one of our Chelmsford dentists. Without brushing our teeth, we are setting ourselves up for problems like tooth decay and gum disease so regular brushing is essential. Even if you already do this though, and we hope that you all do, there is always room for improv ..read more

Aftercare For New Dental Veneers
Blue Sky Dental Blog

How best to look after your new straight, white smile? Probably just behind teeth whitening when it comes to popularity in cosmetic dental treatments, veneers are an excellent way to improve the appearance of the teeth. They improve not only the colour, but in some instances, the shape of the teeth too. While a teeth whitening procedure will whiten your natural teeth, it can’t do anything about chips and cracks in the way that veneers can. This procedure can also be used to protect teeth where the enamel has worn away, leaving the tooth more exposed to harmful bacteria and also to extremes of ..read more

The Worrying Rise Of Tooth Jewellery

Is this new trend taking dental aesthetics a step too far? Trends come and go, as they have done throughout the ages. Some of these are frankly quite silly while others have a longer lasting impact and can change fashion and style for a decade or more. While most of these trends leave no long lasting negative effects, this is not always the case and in today’s Blue Sky Dental blog, we are going to take a look at a trend that is causing some concern in the dental world. As we have mentioned in previous blogs, one of the first things that people notice about us when they meet us for the first ti ..read more

Gingivitis – Is Mild Gum Disease Something You Should Be Worried About?
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
3M ago
This early stage of gum disease is relatively common, so do we really need to be concerned about it? At some point in our lives, most of us will probably have gum disease to some degree. In most cases this will probably be relatively mild and may produce little or no symptoms. This might occur when we are ill or when we neglect our teeth a little due to life being hectic (though even that shouldn’t really be an excuse!) . Usually when this is the case, it is soon  reversed when we get back to our usual teeth cleaning regime. Given that, in these situations, the gum disease is usually temp ..read more

What Does It Take To Become A Dentist?

A brief look at the lengthy training process undertaken by our Chelmsford dental team. As a part of the medical profession, dental care is important, not only to enable a functional mouth but also as a part of preventative health care. Although a few patients might think that it can’t be too difficult to drill a hole in a tooth and fill it or to pull a tooth out, the reality is much different and a lot more involved. People often don’t realise that a tooth is not a single block of material but is much more complex than that. There is also gum health, supportive bone structure and surrounding n ..read more

Teeth Grinding – A Difficult Problem That Affects Our Teeth
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
4M ago
Why do we sometimes grind our teeth together when we sleep and what damage can it cause? Some of our Chelmsford patients will no doubt have seen cartoons where the main character becomes angry and starts to ‘gnash’ their teeth together, sometimes shattering them visibly in the process. This is obviously done for dramatic effect and the reality is that it is extremely unlikely to happen in this way. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, usually happens more subtly than this and any damage done usually, although not always, occurs over a longer period of time. Teeth grinding also usually occurs when we ar ..read more

Long Term Benefits Of Dental Implants

This ‘gold standard’ tooth replacement procedure can set you up for life…. We are now at the start of a new year and some of us will have started to make plans for what we want to achieve this year. With a whole year to go before the next one, some of these plans will be looking to the longer term, rather than a ‘quick fix’ solution. In the world of dental care, we are, thankfully, able to offer many treatments which can and do restore dental issues very quickly; for example, fillings. Some treatments though are probably best looked at from a long term perspective. One area where this is true ..read more

Taking Care Of Your Teeth At Christmas Time

Don’t let your oral health care slip during the festive season! We expect that many of you will be looking forward to the Christmas and new year break, especially if you have some time from work to make the best of it. If you have children, that always adds something special too, though also brings its own headaches of course. We hope that all of our Chelmsford patients have a great time anyway but we would just like to offer a few words of caution too. It is far from unusual for us to have a slightly busier spell just after the break, with the number of calls for emergency dental appointments ..read more
