Tooth decay: your definitive guide

December 11th, 2014

The Real reason for Christmas

Ok, so a recap for you on your definitive guide to preventing tooth decay. We know that 3 main factors need to be in place to cause tooth decay and that’s decay causing bacteria, fermentable carbohydrates and time. We’ve covered in depth how to reduce the decay causing bacteria in your mouth, so now we are looking at the carbohydrates and time.

Decay is more likely to occur when the bacteria can feed on fermentable carbohydrates and the frequency that the carbohydrates are available in a day.

So if you have sugar with your tea or coffee and you drink between 3-10 cups per day, or you snack between your main meals on digestive biscuits, chocolate, sweets, coca cola, dried fruit, LOTS of strawberries, blackberries etc. You are much more likely to suffer from tooth decay. It’s ok to eat sweet things but in moderation.

If you need to snack there are so many healthy alternatives that will fill your hunger pangs. I did a quick search on the internet and the options are endless. It’s a case of making small changes to your dietary habits that will have a huge impact not only on your dental health but also your general health.

As we approach Christmas there’s always the risk over indulgence of food and drink at parties and when meeting up with friends and family. You know what? Christmas is a special time of year so enjoy it. If you can use some of the tips and tricks that we’ve discussed in this series to keep your smile healthy then that will help you throughout the rest of the year.

Merry Christmas from the Time Dental Team.

PS. If you fancy getting into the Christmas festivities, why not come to the Christmas Carol service hosted by Jubilee Church? It’s being held at Weydon School this Sunday 14th December at 6:30 pm. It will be amazing.

An alternative Christmas carol at Jubilee Church, Farnham

December 2nd, 2014

 

The real reason for Christmas

It’s that time of year again. Christmas is on it’s way. I love Christmas- the bright lights, decorating the tree, listening / singing to carols. You can really feel the excitement in the air. I’ll admit buying presents can be a bit stressful but I really love the anticipation of the day and spending time with friends and family. Things can get really hectic on the run up to Christmas and you can often forget what the real reason for it is. Why not take a little time out to be merry and join in some fun and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas?

Jubilee Church in Farnham are hosting a very special alternative Christmas carol night. Last year went down a treat with the theme of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. This year it’s…….. Well you’ll just have to come along and see!

It’s at Weydon School on Sunday 14th December from 18:30 – 20:00. Bring the whole family – they will love it! Get there early its going to be an exciting evening!

Have a look at the Jubilee Church Website HERE,  if you’d like to know more.

I hope to see you there!

Cross infection control in dental practices

November 27th, 2014

sterilisation pouches at Time Dental in Farnham, Surrey

A dentist in Nottingham has been in the press recently and is currently under investigation for allegedly breaching basic cross-infection control procedures. This has resulted in 22,000 patients that he has treated over the years being recalled to be tested for blood borne viruses.

Cross-infection control is very serious and at Time Dental we make sure it is a top priority to ensure absolute safety for our patients and our staff.

Strict documented protocols are in place at each stage of the patient appointment to make sure everybody is safe. To give an example we have guidelines on the correct way to wash hands in between seeing patients and using new sterile gloves for each patient. One-use instruments when used are safely and immediately disposed of. Those instruments that need sterilising are put through a regimental process of washing and disinfecting; ultrasonic bathing and finally placing into a autoclave for complete sterilisation. The instruments and then placed in sterilisation pouches and dated to complete the recorded cycle. This is all carried out in our dedicated decontamination room to provided absolute patient safety. Our CQC certificate validates that we have passed all our cross-infection control procedures. Special tests on our autoclave are carried out on a daily basis and recorded.

At Time Dental we treat cross-infection control extremely seriously. We treat our patients the way we would want to be treated ourselves- and that’s with absolute safety.

Before adult orthodontics at Time Dental

After adult orthodontics at Time Dental

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I am absolutely delighted with my new smile. The result is better and was achieved much more quickly than I expected. Thank you!”
Lisa


Meet Lisa. She had upper crowded teeth, her upper front central incisors were shorter lengths than her lateral incisors which created an aged appearance and she also wanted to improve the colour. Being very self-conscious of her crooked teeth she often did not show them when she smiled. A very common story that we hear all the time at Time Dental.

We discussed her options which ranged  from ceramic veneers to adult orthodontics with tooth whitening and composite bonding on the edges of her upper central incisors. We provided a computer simulation of what her teeth would look like. She decided to straighten her upper teeth first with adult orthodontic braces. Once we had got them into a better postion after 16 weeks of orthodontics we then whitened her teeth. Her teeth were already bright as she had whitened them in the past, but after a course of orthodontics the teeth can look a little discoloured. So once we got them to the shade that she was happy at we carried out composite bonding on the edges of her upper central teeth. This helped to restore the teeth to the original length and helped bring balance and harmony to her smile.

Now she can’t stop smiling. That’s a perfect result!

How to stop tooth decay: Why you should clean in between your teeth

November 5th, 2014

Brushing your teeth twice a day with the right technique as shown in the videos by our hygienist in our previous blogs, will help you to remove the harmful plaque bacteria that causes tooth decay from about 80% of the tooth surface.

The remaining 20% are interdental which are the surfaces in between your teeth. A toothbrush is too big to get in-between the teeth which is where interdental aids can help. Ideally you should clean interdentally twice a day, but even if you do it once a day your dental health will benefit.

The days of your dentist and hygienist telling you to floss more is now a thing of the past! That’s because now there are so many different types of interdental aids to help you keep the bacteria away such as dental floss, dental tape, flossticks, tepe interdental brushes, waterpicks and air flossers. Sometimes the decision is personal preference or you may need a combination of methods. The best way to see what works best for you is to have your dentist or hygienist assess your teeth and they will then be able to recommend the specific interdental aids to help you. It often takes practice and each method has a certain technique.

By cleaning in between your not only removing the harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay, your also removing the bacteria that cause gum disease so its a double benefit!

Have a look at this video from our resident hygienist at Time Dental. She’s showing the best way to use tepe interdental brushes.

Until next time!

How to stop tooth decay: Top tips for dental health from Time Dental

October 23rd, 2014

Welcome back. We’re at the prevention stage of our series on tooth decay- your definitive guide.

So we’re now looking at the ways to stop tooth decay from starting. We know that certain types of bacteria in the mouth are harmful because they make acids that result in tooth decay. Last time we looked at removing the harmful bacteria by- you guessed it – tooth brushing and inter-dental cleaning. We showed you a great video on the correct way to brush your teeth using an electric toothbrush.

I know that some people still do not like to use an electric toothbrush. The most common comment I get is “they just don’t feel clean enough “. I found the reason that most people feel this way is due to their technique as nobody has shown them how to use one properly. I still believe that using an electric toothbrush is the most efficient way of removing the harmful bacteria and the video we showed last time demonstrates the right technique for using one.

If you’re still adamant on using a manual toothbrush then this next video is for you. Our hygienist at Time Dental shows the correct way of using a manual toothbrush to make sure you have the best technique. This can also be applied to kids when brushing their teeth. I would recommend that parents/ guardians brush children’s teeth up until the age of 7, as up to this age they have not yet developed the handskills to effectively brush their own teeth. Let them brush their teeth first and then parents/guardians should finish the job off.  Make sure that you reach the back teeth as these are most commonly missed.

Another top tip is to use a disclosing tablet once a week. This tablet stains plaque bacteria so you can visibly see where the brushing has been missed.

Check out the video for manual toothbrushing.

Until next time, keep smiling!

Wow! Now that is a great smile!

Before clear braces at Time Dental, Farnham in Surrey After clear braces at Time Dental, Farnham in Surrey

Meet Helen. She came to see us as as she was unhappy with her crooked teeth and their dark colour. They made her feel very self-concious and she found that she did not smile much especially when photos were being taken.

We discussed her options and what was important to her. She wanted to achieve her goal as fast as possible so she opted for the clear fixed braces. Check out the result after only 7 months!

Wow! Now that is something truly to smile about. She now tells us that people have commented on how much she smiles!

We are so happy that we could help you. Keep smiling Helen!

We achieved this result with clear fixed brackets. The teeth are gently moved into a straighter position. Alot of people ask me if its painful. The answer is that the first 2-3 weeks are uncomfortable as your mouth gets used to the braces and after that it is generally not a problem.

At Time Dental we always advise our patients to keep focused on the end result which is confidence in smiling and the time it takes to get there will fly by.
