Be Aware On Oral Cancer

28th September, 2012

If you have any issue occur  in the body in Epsom, like anything, if the problem is identified in its infancy, there is a high chance it can be treated and cured; so it is with oral cancer. Though we are still struggling to nail this disease,  we now have a better understanding of  how it starts and what causes it . Mostly, most dentists will agree that a high percentage of people suffering from the problem normally smoke, abuse alcohol, have a bad diet and poor oral hygiene– in all, a poor lifestyle and cancer will thrive on this, attacking the inside of the cheeks, the roof and floor of the mouth, gums and tongue. These fleshy areas are at further risk too from constant irritations in the mouth, from rough teeth, dentures and even fillings. It manifests itself through constant ulcers, sore throats, chewing and swallowing pains and bad tastes in the mouth and this is the time to get a check-up. Some simple tests at the dentist will soon identify if you have a problems; if so then you are in for some pretty testing periods of chemo, radio therapy or even physical surgery to beat the disease. But it’s how you approach this time that will give you the optimum chance of removing the cancerous cells. Everything from diet to oral hygiene must be changed to give you a fighting chance, most of all, your attitude. You may require the help of a support group afterwards too, to help you through the psychological trauma, but success rates are up, so there’s every chance that you can beat this disease.

Overcoming The Fear Of The Dental Drill

With good reason the drill is probably the most feared of all the dental tools. Well now the millions of dental-phobic people all over the world will have one less thing to fear, a new development in dentistry which has been developed as a pain free alternative  is the ‘gas-firing’ drill  it can also make the process faster and more hard-wearing for the future.

With tooth decay being the most common dental problem in the world, Researchers are confident that the new product will allow more patients to undergo filling treatment with a less painful outcome and to help fight phobias of the dentist.

Head of prosthodontics at King’s College London Dental Institute spoke to the Daily Mail earlier today, saying that ‘in principle, it sounds like a good idea. If this mixture of gas and liquid can be shown to remove enamel, it would be a big step forward for dentistry.’

Solving Denture Problems With Mini Implants In Sutton

Time is constantly changing things and technology in dentistry is no exception. We have seen a new generation of dentures emerge that have made an incredible difference to patients. About 20 years ago, you would never have thought about putting the word ‘incredible’ and ‘dentures’ in the same sentence especially if you ask anyone from years ago who had to endure them. When considering dentures there any many different types to take into prospective and you have to answer the question “what will work best for me”. Partial dentures will grip more strongly around remaining teeth which will keep them in place, but this isn’t the only advantages modern dentures have to offer, it’s the materials they are made from and how they look that have made them better than ever before. Partial and full dentures are manufactured from softer more natural looking materials that adhere to the mouth better, avoiding the embarrassment of them falling out. However the ultimate development for the wearer has come from the arrival of mini-implants that lock the dentures firmly into place meaning there will be no worry about a loose denture.
