Feel Confident & Younger With Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many problems that can affect the teeth and spoil the appearance of the smile. These can often be very difficult to deal with, not because of any physical pain, but because this can cause self-confidence and emotional issues if you’re afraid to show off your smile. Fortunately, there are many cosmetic dentistry treatments ranging from simple to complex, affordable to expensive and big to small that can restore the appearance of the smile and give you your confidence back.

Just to give you a few examples, for teeth that have lost their sparkle or have been damaged by discolouration from food and drink such as red wine, coffee or the use of tobacco products, there is the option of tooth whitening. This involves placing a whitening agent against the surface of the teeth, bleaching the enamel and turning the teeth white. Not only will this restore your smile but it can also help to make you look much younger. Teeth whitening is readily available and equally as affordable.

For more serious issues of discolouration and enamel erosion, it is possible to have a set of porcelain veneers to completely cover the existing teeth and transform the appearance of the teeth. Veneers produce simple but stunning results and last for up to twenty years if properly maintained.

The list of cosmetic procedures is vast and constantly growing as new techniques and technology gradually emerge making treatment more efficient and effective. Treatments such as Cerec have significantly improved procedure time for crowns and veneers and new tools such as dental lasers and Waterlase have made the treatments safer and more comfortable for the patient. Dentists can give you more information about the best cosmetic procedures for you and tell you what is possible to do to your teeth to give you the smile you want.

Traditional Herbal Remedies For Gum Disease

Gum disease can be a serious problem that affects nearly three quarters of adults in the India at one time or another. Many people mistakenly believe that gum disease is not that serious and will probably clear up on its own, but this could be making a big mistake. Recent studies have conclusively proved the link between gum disease and heart disease. Infections in the gum can easily enter the bloodstream through the mouth and cause a chain reaction that leads to a narrowing of the arteries around the heart. This could be very dangerous and even fatal in some circumstances.

There are many ways to treat gum disease that involve surgical treatment and conventional medicine but there is also a large movement to treat it using more traditional methods. In many areas of medicine and science as a whole, the reinterpretation of traditional medicine is being proved time and again with scientific evidence. It is for this reason that many dentists are now recommending things such as Echinacea as a treatment. Dropping a small bit on some gauze and keeping it next to the gum overnight will help to ease the inflammation and allow the body to fight the infection.

Aloe Vera and clove have also both been found to have anti-inflammatory qualities that can aid in the successful treatment of gum disease. It is very important that gum disease is treated early s it can become the more serious form of the disease, periodontitis, which will involve far more serious treatment.

Since tooth brushing is the most basic process in oral care, it's a good place to start your natural tooth and gum care program. Traditional peoples the world over use natural tooth brushes made from healing plants. These primitive twig "brushes" actually work quite well, and provide a natural-bristle, disposable brush with healing herbs already incorporated right in the plant. A classic Ayurvedic combination contains two parts powdered potassium alum, an astringent, and one part powdered salt. Prickly ash bark is a classic toothpowder from North America, and myrrh gum is widely used in Middle Eastern herbalism. Tea tree oil (very dilute) stimulates circulation and kills germs.Herbs such as amla that support the healing and development of connective tissue when taken internally will always benefit the gums. Bilberry fruit and hawthorn berry stabilize collagen, strengthening the gum tissue. Licorice root is a gem for the mouth: It promotes anti-cavity action, reduces plaque, and has an antibacterial effect.

Your teeth are a reflection of your whole body. If you are healthy, your mouth will be healthy.Give these techniques a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised at how well they work.And while you're concentrating on brushing and flossing, don't overlook the fact that cleaning the tongue is a critical part of maintaining oral health. Ayurveda, in particular, emphasizes this daily practice. Brush your tongue while brushing your teeth, or use a tongue scraper, which you'll find in most health food stores.Adding this routine to regular six-monthly check ups with your dentist will give you a very good chance of avoiding dental diseases and keeping your mouth feeling and looking healthy.

Our Goma Dental Clinic Blog was at the top of the list for dental Blogs. Dr. Goma writes a number of articles about a variety of topics concerning dentistry. Some of the topics are for patients… some for dental students…. and some for other dentists.

How to write Blogs in General

Blogs are really easy to use and you just need to take the time (minimal) to learn how to do. The two main free Blogs are Blogger and Wordpress. You can go to either site and they will set you up with a free Blog. Wordpress.org allows more customization but it needs to be hosted on a site off of wordpress so there may be a nominal cost but I think it is well worth it. You can make your Blog look just like a web page and that is an advantage. There are tons of books on how to set up Wordpress and blogger.If you need any information please feel free to call us at 177-6450704.
