Gingivitis – Is Mild Gum Disease Something You Should Be Worried About?
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
1w 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?
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
3w ago
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
1M 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

A Smile Makeover For Xmas And The New Year?

3M ago
Upgrade your smile ready for the new year ahead! This time of the year is a strange one for many. The weather has started to turn colder and Christmas isn’t too far away, yet it doesn’t feel as close as perhaps the decorations in town suggest. There can be a sense of a lull during the next few weeks before the often frantic preparations for Christmas begin in earnest. This is a good time then, to take stock and consider changes that we would like to make in our lives when the new year comes (and even before). With the festivities just a few weeks away, this is a popular time for many of our Ch ..read more

Periodontitis And The Threat To Your Teeth
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
3M ago
If gum disease is not managed effectively, you might find yourself looking at the tooth replacement options at our Chelmsford dental clinic. The good news is that, partially due to exposure on TV adverts, there is now a much greater awareness of the problems that gum disease can cause. Although these adverts often emphasise the symptom of bleeding gums, this isn’t the only one and just because your gums don’t bleed when you brush your teeth, it doesn’t mean that you are not at risk. Like many health issues, both oral and general, gum disease goes through various stages. Initially is not overly ..read more

Comprehensive Oral Health Care For Children In Chelmsford
Blue Sky Dental Blog

Good mouth care starts before we are even able to brush our own teeth. The chances are that many of you reading this blog are parents, or are perhaps hoping to be in the not too distant future. We have tried to use our blogs to give our adult patients help and guidance on how to look after their teeth and gums as best as they can, and now it is time to turn our attention to the younger generation, many of whom will be too young to be able to look after their own oral health care. Young children’s teeth are important, and whilst it is true that their first teeth will eventually fall out, to be ..read more

Do ‘Invisible’ Dental Braces Really Exist?
Blue Sky Dental Blog
by dentalmedia
4M ago
A Chelmsford orthodontist’s view of modern teeth straightening methods. First of all, let us answer the question in the title. The truth, of course, is that it isn’t possible to have completely ‘invisible’ dental braces otherwise dentists wouldn’t be able to see them to fit them in the first place. The ‘invisible’ factor is largely a marketing term but that doesn’t mean to say that they don’t offer huge benefits in this particular area, to say nothing of the purpose for which they were designed; i.e. to straighten your teeth. The days of having to wear unsightly and very visible braces in orde ..read more

The Effects Of Smoking On Your Teeth And Gums
Blue Sky Dental Blog

This slowly dying habit can still cause a lot of harm for those who continue smoke Although smoking may have ‘gone out of style’ in the last decade or so, there are still a significant number of people who continue to do so. In 2021 there were approximately 6.5 million people still smoking in the UK and numbers are probably still somewhere around that mark. Worryingly, this figure not only includes people who have always smoked but many that are starting too. The dangers are well known of course but, especially if you are young and healthy, there can be a tendency to bury your head in the sand ..read more
