No More Toothache!

Monday, September 26th, 2016

3534882_blogThere’s nothing worse than a nagging pain in the tooth. If you’re in pain or have suffered on and off for some time, we’re here to help. Our experts will get to the root (pardon the pun!) of the problem so you can bid goodbye to toothache for good.

Why have I got toothache?

Toothache is a very common problem. Sometimes it comes and goes without much drama but in other cases it just won’t budge. It can get so bad that you can’t even eat properly! There are a few main causes for toothache, including obvious ones like dental injuries, or more subtle reasons like dental abscesses, decay or sensitivity, which is often linked to enamel erosion.

When should I see a dentist?

Get to your dentist pronto if:

  • You suddenly experience excrutiating pain
  • You’re in pain on a regular basis
  • You experience heightened sensitivity, weakness in the tooth or bleeding gums
  • You hurt your tooth in an accident

How is toothache treated?

As a short-term fix, you can take over the counter painkillers to soothe pain, but always follow the dosage instructions on the packet. If your pain is really bad or has been bugging you for a while, you should make an appointment with your dentist. Depending on what’s caused the toothache, treatments include:

  • Fillings or crowns
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Hygienist treatments
  • Abscess removal

Your dentist can also give you sound advice about diet and oral hygiene to keep toothache well away.

Choosing your Toothpaste in Leeds

Friday, January 25th, 2013

There are a lot of things to take into account when it comes to caring for your teeth at home in Leeds, finding the right toothpaste is one of the ingredients in this. The market is flooded with different types and choosing may get a little confusing at first, but when you think about it, that is such a bad thing either. You can find toothpastes for all occasions and all conditions so this can only be good for your oral health. Sensitive gums require toothpastes that will reduce the sensitivity when it comes to drinking and eating hot and cold. Other toothpastes offer pro-enamel protection for the surfaces of your teeth. You can also buy powdered pastes that are abrasive enough to remove the stains left by nicotine. But the incredible range of toothpastes goes on. Tooth whitening is big box office right now and the toothpastes on the market do a great job in putting that sheen back onto the surfaces of your teeth. Then we move into the world of alternative herbal remedies. Most toothpastes contain fluoride and this is a mineral that has started to come under some attack over the years, so a whole range of toothpastes have sprung up that are fluoride free. Choice is always good, but making a choice is hard so you should talk candidly to your dentists about all the choices available to you.
