I reckon its NOT going to be a white Christmas this year, but you can make sure you have whiter teeth for your Christmas and New Year parties.

Professional Teeth whitening is easily the most popular treatment to improve your smile. It’s absolutely safe when done correctly and you’ll get a great result. Check out the case above.

This was achieved with the Time Dental professional teeth whitening kit. The first step is to have your teeth assessed for FREE by our cosmetic dentist Dr Rashid. Once you have been given the thumbs up as suitable for teeth whitening, impressions of your teeth are taken to make your custom fit teeth whitening trays. After theses have been made, Dr Rashid will show you the steps for successful teeth whitening.

Honey…. Just as bad for your teeth as sugar

November 19th, 2015

Honey- sugar advice form Time Dental in Farnham, Surrey

I had a patient in the other day for a comprehensive health assessment. He told me his teeth had been deteriorating. When we discussed his lifestyle he told me he drank about 5-10 cups of tea a day. He was proud to tell me he had no sugar……only a teaspoon of honey in every cup.

When you think of honey, you think of nature, bee hives and bee keepers. He was astounded when I told him that this is one of the reasons his teeth are falling apart. Honey, although a natural sweetener is still a SUGAR. It’s a more complex molecular structure than refined granulated sugar  but your body responds to it as a sugar spike in the same way. If eaten to excess you’re at a high risk of diabetes, obesity and tooth decay.

Remember tooth decay is about lack of dental hygiene and frequency of sugar in take. This patient was taking sugar hits throughout the day so he was at a high risk of rampant tooth decay.

It’s all about moderation. If you would like to improve your lifestyle and need some top advice, then give us a call.

Why is sugar so addictive? Time Dental in Surrey investigates…

November 5th, 2015

Why sugar is addictive- from Time Dental, Surrey

Why is it that many people often crave sugary foods like chocolate or cake?

When we eat food, glucose, which is a simple sugar that is absorbed through the gut and into the bloodstream, is distributed to cells around the body.

Glucose is important for the brain as it uses glucose as a source of fuel for the cells. These cells cannot store glucose themselves so they need a constant supply from the bloodstream. Eating sugar prompts the body to release the hormone seratonin. This is a hormone that makes you happy which is one of the reasons we turn to it when we crave comfort or when we celebrate.

This increase in sugar results in more insulin produced which helps to regulate the blood sugar levels, but can end up causing a sugar crash which results in making many crave more sugar, leading to a cycle of binge eating. Another problem is our bodies cannot tell when we have had enough of a certain type of sugar.

The NHS says that added sugars should not take up more than 10% of the engergy you get from food and drink each day. Thats approximately 70g a day for men and 50g a day for women. 13 teaspoons is approxiamtely 50g of sugar. To put that into context one can of fizzy pop has about 6 teaspoons of sugar.

It’s all about moderation and being more sugar aware. You can often work out how much sugar you’re consuming a day. It just takes a quick mental calculation!

What’s the point in dental hygienist therapy?… 7 reasons

October 15th, 2015

Dental hygiene therapy at Time Dental in Farnham, Surrey

The majority of the population are unaware of the benefits of regular dental hygiene therapy appointments. Many people think “it’s just scrape and clean”. This is entirely FALSE.

The mouth is full of bacteria. There are bacteria that are helpful and bacteria that are harmful. For example, plaque bacteria, is a harmful bacteria that can destroy the boney support of your teeth and result in tooth loss. When plaque bacteria becomes hard, this is known as tartar. One of the things your dental hygienist will do is carefully remove this harmful bacteria. Not only that, they will give you an individual plan to help you keep your dental health in top shape.

Regular dental hygiene therapy will help:

  • keep your breath fresh
  • ensure teeth look better, whiter and not stained
  • maintain strong foundations- keep your bone-keep your teeth
  • protect your existing teeth and fillings
  • improve general health- gum disease increases risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke premature births
  • reduce the need for more fillings /replace the ones you have
  • catch early potential life threatening conditions such as oral cancer

Now that direct access is available, which means you dont need to see your dentist first before seeing a hygienist, it’s even easier to make sure you look after your dental health.

Government rejects sugar tax

October 8th, 2015

Jamie Oliver Sugar Tax- blog news from Time Dental in Farnahm

Even though over 140,000 people signed the petition organised by Chef Jamie Oliver for a sugar tax, the government decide to reject it.

Sugar related tooth decay is the number one admittance to hospital of children in the UK. The introduction of the sugar was just 7p per regular sized can of soft drink with added sugar. This tax would generate approximately £1 billion per year to treat health problems (eg diabetes, obesity and tooth decay) caused by sugar. 

The government’s response centred on obesity and omitted the other issues such as diabetes and dental health.

The British Dental Health Foundation are still on the case for campaigning for the sugar tax, so the fight’s not over yet……..
