The Dangers of Amalgam Fillings

We get a lot of questions about the dangers of amalgam fillings, so we asked Brett to tell us about their risks. This is what he wrote;

So, amalgam fillings- well. Contrary to popular myth there is no danger from the chemicals in an amalgam filling that is in a tooth. The mercury release is far lower than the levels we get from a tin of tuna. The most dangerous time of mercury release into our bodies is when they are being placed or removed. We don’t place amalgam fillings in my clinic, we do however remove amalgam fillings. This can be done safely by taking a few simple precautions during the procedure.

The main issue I have with amalgam fillings is what they can do to the teeth themselves. If an amalgam filling is small then it is of very low risk. If it extends over the front or back edge and there is any sign of cracking then it is high risk. If it runs from front to back of a tooth then it is also high risk. Why is it high risk? This is because of the mechanical risk it poses to the tooth. An amalgam filling does not attach to the tooth and as such the sides of the tooth can flex around the filling when we put pressure on them. This leads to cracks and eventually breaking of the tooth. Also when the sides of the tooth are flexing saliva will get down between tooth and filling which causes the filling to corrode. The corrosion products are larger than the original filling and as such the filling starts to swell, this puts more pressure on the surrounding tooth and also leads to breakage of the tooth. So often patients come in with a piece of tooth and proudly declare “but the filling is intact” – that is the wrong way round. I would prefer the filling to break as we can repair that. That is why I don’t like amalgam fillings.

The alternatives are simple – a plastic white filling or a ceramic cap (dentists talk about crowns and onlays). Both of these have pros and cons. The plastic fillings look great and are relatively simple, without having to remove much tooth tissue, but unless they are small they can be weak, and not provide any mechanical support to the tooth. Alternatively, ceramic caps are great looking, and have tremendous durability with excellent mechanical strength, but require more to be done to the tooth, with a loss of more tooth structure and a very small risk to the nerve of the tooth, which may result in the need for root canal afterwards.

All of these advantages and disadvantages need to be discussed with your dentist on an individual and tooth by tooth case. Please call us if you want to know more. Hope that helps

One question we get asked frequently at Serenity Dental is ‘Which toothbrush should I buy?’ There is certainly a lot of choice on the market, and sometimes trying to work out the advantages of one brush over another can be next to impossible.

SA dental hygienist will be able to advise you on the ‘right’ brush to pick once they’ve looked at the shape of your mouth and listened to your needs, but until that appointment here are a few handy tips from one of our dental hygienists, Lyndsay White.

no-repeat;center top;;

More Dexterity Means a Deeper Clean

It’s best to choose a smaller toothbrush, as you’ll be able to use it with more dexterity and brush more effectively. This is particularly true if you have a smaller mouth – we sometimes find our patients are using toothbrushes which are too big for their mouths, and this really affects the quality of their brushing. If you are unsure if your current toothbrush is too big, consult your hygienist and see what they say.

Don’t forget, you should be replacing your toothbrush every eight to twelve weeks (or whenever the bristles of the brush have become splayed, whichever is sooner). After this point, the brush is no longer effective at clearing food debris from your teeth, as it won’t brush up to the gum or between the gaps in your teeth and will be full of bacteria also. If you choose an electric toothbrush, make sure you are able to replace the bristle heads.

no-repeat;center top;;

How to Brush

To avoid having to replace your brush too frequently (not to mention avoid damaging your teeth and gums), brush gently and slowly as opposed to forcefully and quickly.

Brushing energetically can feel like you’re giving your teeth a more thorough clean, but you can actually miss lots of areas, and you’ll wear your brush out far more quickly. Take it slowly and gently and you’ll end up with a cleaner mouth.

In you want to improve your technique, we offer toothbrushing education sessions with one of our nurses. Please ask at reception for details.

no-repeat;center top;;

Manual or Electric?

Manual or Electric?

The manual toothbrush vs electric toothbrush question comes up quite a lot at Serenity. If we’re talking purely about dental hygiene, electric brushes are definitely the way to go.

They’re not only more effective because of their motorised function, but also because they’re smaller (and as mentioned earlier, a smaller brush often equals cleaner teeth).

In addition, many electric brushes also feature a timer which helps to ensure you’re brushing for long enough, and some also let you know if you’re brushing too hard with an audible click.

Obviously, the price tag of an electric brush is considerably larger than a manual brush, and it may be more economical to go for the latter instead. Having said that, if you’re someone who often forgets to clean their teeth, you might find you use your brush more often if you’ve paid a little more money for it. And make sure you can replace the brush heads.

(We’ve also noticed that our male patients tend to brush more often if they have an electric brush – maybe it’s something to do with their affinity for gadgets!)
.Another thing to consider with an electric brush is how it will be powered – either it’ll need batteries which you’ll have to pay for, a two-pin socket on your bathroom wall, or a safe and convenient space outside the bathroom where it can be plugged in (potentially with a two-pin adapter to bridge the gap between your brush’s charger and the plug socket). Be sure to check the technical specs of your brush and bathroom before you buy it.

no-repeat;center top;;

Choose an Affordable Brush

Choose an Affordable Brush

If you do go down the manual route, you can actually get a really good brush for in inexpensive amount. I often recommend a Sensodyne 3.5, an Oral B 30 or a TePe Molar brush, but there’s no particular brand which stands out as ‘the best’ – it’s more about which brush is the best match for you.

Watch out at the supermarket – you can end up paying £6 for a toothbrush which is really no better than some of the ‘budget’ options, if in doubt just consult your hygienist to help you choose the right brush for you.

What To Do with Old Brushes?

What To Do with Old Brushes?

As you might expect, a lot of people don’t replace their brushes nearly as often as they should. There’s a multitude of reasons for this, but it seems one of them is simply the reluctance to throw out the old brush. It’s true that a lot of old brushes simply end up in landfills, which obviously isn’t great for the environment.

Thankfully, there are a few ways that you can lessen the environmental impact of your brushing routine without compromising your dental health. Like electric toothbrushes, some manual toothbrushes also feature replaceable heads – so rather than disposing of a whole toothbrush each time you replace, you can just throw away the old head.

Speaking of electric toothbrushes, keep in mind that an electric brush will last much longer than several manual brushes put together, and when it comes to the end of its life it can be recycled at a Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (aka WEEE) facility.

There’s also a variety of eco-friendly brushes on the market, such as plastic brushes recycled from yoghurt pots and even wooden brushes which can be composted. The trouble with these is that they can be more expensive, but it’s still an option to consider if you’re environmentally-inclined.

Lastly, old plastic brushes can be reused! They’re great for cleaning dentures, as well as cleaning awkward spots around the house (although I wouldn’t recommend using the same brush for both jobs!).

Why Should You See The Hygienist? http://www.serenitydental.co.uk/why-should-you-see-the-hygienist/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:01:44 +0000 http://sd.warp9cloudhosting.com/?p=286 If you are coming to our dental practice for the first time and have yet to be seen by a dental hygienist, or you’ve heard about […]

If you are coming to our dental practice for the first time and have yet to be seen by a dental hygienist, or you’ve heard about them but put off seeing one, you’ll probably have plenty of questions about what they can do for you and if it is just an extra option that can be avoided.

Serenity’s dental therapist, Marie Hobbs, explains why you should see a hygienist and the benefits they can bring.

no-repeat;center top;;

The role of a Hygienist

The functions of the dentist and hygienist are very different. The dentist will diagnose and treat problems that are in different stages of development. However, the hygienist will carry out preventative treatment to limit the prospect of dental issues.

In this aspect, dental hygienists have two clearly defined roles which fall under the categories of oral health promotion and clinical treatment.

They perform necessary procedures to limit the risk of developing periodontal and gum disease. While a combination of scaling and polishing treatments ensure the effective removal of plaque, bacteria and staining from the teeth.

You may also need to visit the dental hygienist for the treatment of gum disease. Such treatment will involve scaling and the application of anti-microbial materials below the gums, often with the use of anaesthetics.

no-repeat;center top;;

Vital Treatments

The dental hygienist plays an essential role in the prevention of gum disease and tooth decay and use highly effective methods for the removal of plaque and bacteria.

Such treatment is absolutely necessary if you want to minimise the prospect of tooth loss. Our experts are also able to recommend effective methods of combating halitosis.

During your visit we will encourage you to maintain a healthy diet for excellent oral hygiene. We will also advise you about brushing your tongue and minimise the build up of bacteria on an everyday basis.

Those of you who drink red wine or smoke should brush the top part of the tongue for improved appearance. You’ll find that food and drink tastes better if you follow our advice – one benefit that some people don’t know about.

no-repeat;center top;;

Expert Oral Health Tips

It might surprise you to know that 30% of the population are expected to develop gum disease at some point in their lives.

The early onset of this common disease may be reversed by flossing, scaling and routinely brushing the teeth. However, advanced gum disease is relatively likely to result in the loss of teeth. Visiting dental hygienists can manage and minimise the impact of the disease.

You’ll receive the best advice during appointments with the dental hygienist at Serenity Dental. Recommendations include the avoidance of high sugar foods and limiting the consumption of tea and coffee. You should have ultimate faith in our ability to maintain optimum oral health.

Serenity Dental offer you an expert Hygienist session as well as many other friendly services that may be useful to you, so you have one less thing to worry about.

To arrange a hygienist appointment with Serenity Dental, or you have any questions or enquires, give them a call on 01329 230 111.

The more often we see a patient, the better it is for their dental health, as any issues with their teeth can be spotted and fixed before turning into bigger problems.

IThis is why we make a visit to our practice as enjoyable as possible. The comfort of our patients is one of the most important parts of the Serenity Dental service.

We’ve developed this attitude as a means of helping people who get nervous about a visit to the dentist, or those who have grown up with a phobia of dentists and dental surgeries following poor experiences as children.

When I was a NHS dental nurse it was obvious the main problem the NHS has is a lack of time. We weren’t able to give patients as much time as they needed to feel relaxed about treatment.

Whereas at Serenity Dental, a lot of effort has been taken to ensure the staff get to know the patients, that there is a continuity of service and the patient is in charge of the whole process – even down to which piece of music they listen to during the procedure.

In this blog, I hope to convey how we begin treating you before you’ve even sat in the chair.

no-repeat;center top;;

A Pleasant Visit from Start to Finish

As soon as a patient walks in, they’re greeted with a warm, friendly smile from the receptionist – likely the same receptionist they spoke to on the phone when booking the appointment and the person with whom they’ve already built a rapport.

We ask patients to take a seat in our waiting room, which is always calm and quiet, with tea and coffee available. There’s also a selection of up to date newspapers and magazines.

We try to keep on time for all appointments so that the patient isn’t left in the waiting room to ruminate on the upcoming procedure and wonder when they’ll eventually be called in. The dental nurse for the procedure will greet the patient, shake their hand, and lead them into the surgery.

no-repeat;center top;;

http://www.serenitydental.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/waiting-room.jpg

The Comfort Of The Patient

All the Comforts of Home

As mentioned earlier, the dentist’s chair can be seen a source of anxiety for nervous patients, but we give them all the time they need to feel comfortable about sitting in it. The chairs at Serenity Dental feature headrests with Tempur memory foam, so they’re super-comfortable to rest your head on.

Once in the chair, we ask the patient what music they’d like to listen to. Using the state-of-the-art Sonos music system installed in the surgery, they can choose from a wide range of genres and radio stations. Our patients are always surprised and impressed by this, and it’s a big indicator that the appointment is running on their terms, rather than ours. We don’t mind what they play, just as long as it helps them feel more chilled – we’ve had everything from church bells to heavy metal!

Speaking of chilled, there’s also air-conditioning in the surgery – so if they feel too hot or too cold, we can adjust the temperature accordingly.

Before the treatment begins, we ensure the patient knows exactly what procedures we’ll be carrying out. We use an inter-oral camera and x-rays to help explain what we’ll be doing next, and we go through what tools we’ll be using and the sounds, sights and sensations the patient will experience.

Some patients don’t want to know, and that’s fine too – but for most patients, being able to form realistic expectations of the treatment helps to quell some of their anxiety.

We also take the time to chat with patients and give them an opportunity to talk about any anxiety they might have. Listening to their needs, concerns and fears helps us to deliver a more relaxing, stress-free experience for them.

no-repeat;center top;;

Putting the Patient in Control

Once the patient is happy for us to proceed, we’ll go ahead and start the treatment – but not before giving them a handheld buzzer, which they can press at any time to stop the treatment. As soon as we hear the buzzer, we immediately stop all work until the patient is happy to continue.

Being given the buzzer makes them feel in control of the situation, and it’s empowering for them. By the time the treatment is over, many of our patients are amazed that they didn’t press the buzzer at all!

A topical anaesthetic gel is also applied before we administer any local anaesthetic, with plenty of time in between to make sure the gel has had the desired effect. This ensures the whole experience is as painless as possible.

Once the procedure is all over, we try to ensure that the patient will see the same dentist and dental nurse for all future appointments. This not only means that the staff have a greater understanding of the dental health of their patients (rather than just reading through the notes of other dentists), it means the trust the patient has put in them is not squandered by introducing them to entirely new staff members.

It also means we can deliver a more personal service – for example, if one of my patients tells me during the current appointment that they’re going on holiday next week, I can ask them how it went during their next visit. Again, this helps the patient to feel more relaxed in our company, and so their dental experience is a positive one.

no-repeat;center top;;

Pre-Treatment Appointments

But you don’t need to have an appointment to have a look around. We’re always seeking to improve the service and one new feature we’ll be adding is pre-treatment appointments.

So if a patient is really sensitive towards treatment they can arrange to meet a dental assistant – just so they can actually see the surroundings, sit in the dental chair, spend a little time talking with the person who will be looking after them and bit by bit reduce any concerns.

If you would like to book an appointment for treatment, or to meet a dental assistant just give us a call on 01329 230 111

The post To Floss or Not appeared first on Serenity Dental.

Prevention is better than cure and you’ll quickly come to realise that at Serenity Dental we live by that statement. One area that really helps combating tooth decay and gum disease is flossing. Not every one’s cup of tea at first but after a short amount of practice most people get the hang of it.

In this blog dental nurse and oral health educator Kelley Clark, gives her guidance on flossing.

no-repeat;center top;;

Why Should People Floss?

Regular flossing is just as important for your oral health as brushing. You are advised to floss each day for good dental health. Dental floss will allow you to combat plaque between the teeth and gums. It will remove unsightly and potentially harmful debris from the teeth and gum-line.

no-repeat;center top;;

So, What Is Plaque?

Plaque is a white, sticky substance comprised of bacteria which lurks around the gum margin and in between our teeth. The bacteria feed upon the food that is left behind after we eat at any time of the day. If the bacteria builds up then it is likely to cause inflammation of the gums and subsequently bleeding.

However, our gums will become increasingly healthy and the side effects will stop if we floss on an everyday basis.

no-repeat;center top;;

How Should People Floss?

To achieve the best oral results it is necessary to floss each day before brushing. This will allow you to remove all the food bacteria and debris which has accumulated between the teeth and gums. The toothbrush will then wash these bad bacteria away.

There is a temptation to reverse the process of flossing and brushing. However, this method is relatively ineffective and may lead to the development of bad breath.

The average user is expected to require about 45cm of dental floss. This should be wound around the middle finger of each hand, leaving only a few cm between for a smooth glide through your mouth. The floss should be pulled tight for insertion between the contacts of your teeth.

Some people use a sawing motion when flossing but this can lead to gum damage and bleeding.

It is worth bearing in mind that the contact point between the teeth is often tight. You should be careful not to exert to much force and risk damaging the gums. Once the floss is through the contact point you should floss gently up and down the side of teeth and underneath the gum-line.

You may remove the floss via the contact point or let go with one hand and gently pull the floss from your mouth.

no-repeat;center top;;

What Type Of Floss Should You Use?

You will discover that there are different types of floss. Nylon floss is a particularly common choice. However, this material is prone to breaking and shredding. Dental tape is a stronger alternative and is available from dentists and local pharmacies. Some people opt for the strength of PTFE or glide floss. However, this floss variety is slightly more expensive.

Dental floss may be waxed for an improved grip and glide. There’s also the option of buying flavoured floss for a more pleasurable everyday experience. Those people who have difficulty flossing may consider the additional purchase of floss holders and picks for convenience.

Serenity Dental advise people under the age of 14 against flossing, unless they are supervised by responsible adults. However, we are able to provide guidance on brushing techniques and other solutions for optimum oral health.

no-repeat;center top;;

Flossing Isn’t Something New

An American dentist by the name of Levi Spear Palmly was responsible for the development of flossing during the early 19th century. He and his colleagues recommended silk floss.

However, dental floss didn’t become commercially available until 1882. Dr Charles C Bass went on to create nylon floss in response to the silk shortage during World War 2.

If you need advice, guidance or a demonstration on how to floss please talk to our staff who will delighted to help you.

One of the customer amenities which sets Serenity Dental apart from most other dental surgeries is the option to select your own music to listen to during your procedure.

The relaxing effect of music on our patients is well known to us – but now it seems there’s even some medical research to back it up…

The NHS and the BBC recently reported on a study conducted by researchers at Queen Mary University, Barts Health NHS Trust and Brunel University; the results of which appeared in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet.

no-repeat;center top;;

Investigating the Healing Power of Music

The researchers combined results from several similar studies which have been put together over the past century, all of which assessed the effects of music on adult patients undergoing various different forms of surgery (with or without sedation or anesthetic).

Some studies focused on patients who listened to music before their operation, some centered around patients who had music played during their surgery, and some looked at patients who listened to music following their procedure. The study also compared music against various test controls, including white noise, headphones with no music, undisturbed bed rest and routine care.

no-repeat;center top;;

Can Music Take the Pain Away?

All in all, out of the 73 randomised controlled trials that were reviewed, the following results came to light:

  • In 45 trials, music reduced pain during the recovery process following the operation.
  • Music reducing postoperative anxiety in patients was indicated in 43 of them.
  • Patients using music used fewer painkillers after their operation in 34 trials.
  • 16 trials found that patient satisfaction increased with the addition of music.

The final conclusion of the study? “Music is a non-invasive, safe, and inexpensive intervention that can be delivered easily and successfully in a hospital setting.” Dr Catherine Meads is one of the lead authors of the study. Interestingly, her own personal experience matched up with her research findings – she found listening to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon helped her relax after a hip operation in April. She told BBC News that “currently music is not routinely used during surgery” due to previous concerns of its effectiveness as well as budget and organisational limitations. However, she says, “music is a safe, cheap and non-invasive option that should be available to everyone having surgery”. Here at Serenity Dental, we couldn’t agree more.
