Protecting children's teeth

A regular teeth-cleaning routine is essential for good dental health in children. Start brushing your baby's teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as the first milk tooth breaks through.

It's important to use a fluoride toothpaste as this helps prevent and control tooth decay. Always check with your dentist about the right choice of toothpaste for your child's age and tooth development.

All children can use family toothpaste as long as you supervise brushing until the age of seven. Brush your child's teeth for about two minutes twice a day: once just before bedtime and at least one other time during the day.

Supervise tooth brushing until your child is seven or eight years old, either by brushing their teeth yourself or watching how they do it.

From the age of seven or eight they should be able to brush their own teeth.

Dental hygiene in adults

Our dental hygiene treatment includes professionally cleaning the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing.

However, perhaps our most important role is showing you the best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

The importance of dental hygiene

Poor dental hygiene leads to bacteria that build-up on teeth make gums prone to infection. The immune system attempts to curb the infection and the gums become inflamed.

The inflammation continues unless the infection is brought under control. Over time, inflammation and the chemicals it releases eat away at the gums and bone structure that hold teeth in place.

The result is severe gum disease, known as periodontitis. Inflammation can also cause problems in the rest of the body.

The advantages of good oral health

Our specialist periodontist

Over 80% of the UK population have some form of gum disease and most of these are mild cases and can be treated with a good dental hygiene regime.

For patients with moderate to severe gum disease, you may need to be referred to a Specialist in Periodontics and we are proud that we have Dr Raman Bhardwaj at CrownWood Dental.

Referral to a specialist is necessary where a more detailed treatment of your teeth and gums is required and the treatment options include both non-surgical and surgical management of gum disease, depending on the patient diagnosis.

It’s important to pre-empt the onset of severe gum disease because it can also cause problems in the rest of the body.

The link to diabetes

The relationship between diabetes and periodontitis is now becoming clear. Inflammation that starts in the mouth weakens the body’s ability to control blood sugar.

People with diabetes have trouble processing sugar because of a lack of insulin (the hormone that converts sugar into energy). Periodontal disease further complicates diabetes because the inflammation impairs the body’s ability to utilize insulin.

The link to heart disease

Though the reasons are not fully understood, it's clear that gum disease and heart disease also go hand in hand. Up to 91% of patients with heart disease have periodontitis, compared to 66% of people with no heart disease.

The two conditions have several risk factors in common, such as smoking, unhealthy diet, and excess weight. And some suspect that periodontitis has a direct role in raising the risk for heart disease as well.

The link to pregnancy

While many factors contribute to premature or low birth weight deliveries, researchers are also looking at the possible role of gum disease. Infection and inflammation in general seem to interfere with a foetus’ development in the womb.

Bad breath

Bad breath is a very common problem and there are many different causes. Persistent bad breath is usually caused by the smelly gases released by the bacteria that coat your teeth and gums.

However, strong foods like garlic and onions can add to the problem. Smoking is also one of the main causes of bad breath, along with certain illnesses such as nasal and stomach conditions.

Bits of food that get caught between the teeth and on the tongue will rot and can sometimes cause an unpleasant smell. So correct and regular brushing is very important to keep your breath smelling fresh.

The bacteria on our teeth and gums (plaque) also cause gum disease and dental decay. If you see your dentist regularly this will not only help prevent bad breath but will also let the dentist look for and treat these problems.
