White Fillings Or Traditional Amalgam?
Dental Centre Bedford
by DCB-admin
1M ago
Our Bedford patients have a choice of the traditional or the modern aesthetic version. The most common dental treatment by some way is the tooth filling. Most people will have at least one of these in their lifetime and very often many more. It has long been the standard way of restoring a tooth that has been affected by decay, repairing cavities that will only grow over time if not promptly treated. The most widely used type of filling is amalgam. This is the one that most of you will probably know best and certainly for those long out of their youth. Amalgam has been a successful way of fill ..read more

Your Dental Care This Christmas

In our last blog before Christmas, we offer our Bedford patients some useful tips for maintaining healthy teeth over the festive period. Christmas comes but once a year, as the saying goes, but sometimes it seems to creep up on us and is almost here before we know it. This can lead to a lot of last minute buying for presents and food, ready for the big day. Most of us will enjoy the break and the opportunity to meet up with friends and relatives. It can be great fun for sure, but in our professional capacity, we are also aware of some of the pitfalls that it can bring for our patient’s oral he ..read more

Tooth Sensitivity – Possible Causes And Your Treatment Options In Bedford
Dental Centre Bedford
by DCB-admin
3M ago
Sensitive teeth are not only uncomfortable but may also indicate more problems ahead. If you suffer from mild to moderate discomfort caused by tooth sensitivity, you might just put it down to ‘one of those things’ that you have to put up with in life, especially as you get older. This would be a mistake though as there are a number of ways that this can be controlled or corrected, but it could also be an indication that further problems may not be too far away. Patients of our Bedford dental clinic will know that we firmly promote preventative care, as well as having a range of treatments avai ..read more

As the cooler weather approaches, what things should our Bedford dental patients look out for? It is probably a bit premature to be expecting icy blasts of wind and snow in the next few weeks, but after the recent late ‘heatwave’, things are starting to cool down, with some parts of the country expected to fall below freezing this week. Nobody can tell whether it will be a bitterly cold winter or not, but the lower temperatures generally, can present a few issues for our teeth and gums, and this is something that we are going to take a look at in today’s blog. We hope that patients of The Dent ..read more

Both of these treatments can be used to restore damaged teeth. We take a look at the pros and cons of each of them. Some dental problems are clearly solvable with a specific treatment but others may mean that a choice needs to be made between two or more treatments. One of these situations involves issues that can be resolved either by the use of bonding or by dental veneers. Each of these treatments has its merits and its negatives. In today’s blog, we will take a look at what these are. In all situations, we welcome the input of patients who may have certain treatment preferences, we hope th ..read more

Maintaining Kids Oral Health During The Summer Holidays

When routines get broken, children’s teeth can suffer. Make sure your children’s teeth and gums stay healthy this holiday It’s the time of the year that many children look forward to and some parents probably don’t. The long summer school break is now upon us and, as parents, we have to use our imaginations to keep our young children entertained and shuffle our  work responsibilities as best as we can. One thing that often happens during this time is that our routines change. The kids don’t have to get up early for school and we no longer get the time away from them either. One consequenc ..read more

Periodontics – Specialist Care For Bedford Patients
Dental Centre Bedford

Regular gum care is essential for healthy teeth and gums Although patients usually come to us for help with the health and appearance of their teeth, we also put a lot of emphasis on caring for your gums as well. Poor gum health can lead to a lot of problems, not only with the gums themselves, but with the teeth too. Unhealthy gums can present symptoms such as bleeding, inflammation and soreness, but can also, if not monitored and treated in time, lead to teeth becoming loose due to bone degradation, potentially leading to loss of some teeth. It is also worth reminding any of our patients with ..read more

It’s never too late to quit smoking Before we start today’s blog, we would like to take this belated opportunity to wish all of our patients a very happy new year. There are far fewer smokers in the UK today than there were even ten years ago. The number of these is still very significant though with approximately 6.5 million people still smoking. This might come as a surprise, but smokers have become less visible now the habit is banned from pubs and most other public spaces. Smoking in your own home is as dangerous as smoking anywhere else though so if you do smoke, you should do all that yo ..read more

This later stage of gum disease can be disastrous for your teeth and oral health It has been a little while since we wrote about gum disease and why poor gum maintenance should be addressed. It can be all too easy to focus on the teeth as these are what people notice when we smile (although inflamed gums are often noticeable too). Whilst having a healthy set of teeth is important, maintaining healthy gums is too, and as an old song goes ‘you can’t have one without the other’. Today we will look at how you, along with your local Bedford dentist, can help you maintain healthy gums; but first, a ..read more
