The precautions taken by your dentist by placing a lead apron over your body plus the protection of your body mean that your baby is well protected in the womb. The risks are lowered further with dental x-rays because of the very focused way in which the x-ray machine used by dentists emits it’s beam – in a directly focused small area of your jaw.

While the risk is considered negligible, there is a natural reluctance with most health care practitioners, particularly dentists, to x-ray pregnant women. It would usually only be considered in the case of an emergency when the advantage to the mother’s health is outweighed by any potential risk to your baby.

Seeing a dentist on a regular basis is vital to keep teeth in optimal working order and for general good health. The traditional rule of thumb has been to visit the dentist every six months.

Not only have you had a dental procedure that you were nervous about which made your heart race, but you’ve probably still got that anesthetic making your mouth feel weird. So take your time, stay seated in the chair until you’re confident you can get up safely. Let the staff know you’re feeling unsteady. They fully expect that some patients require more time and attention after procedures than others. You and your safety are paramount. Let them help you and recognize that it is temporary and you’ll recover soon.

Yes you can whiten your teeth at home.

At-home teeth whitening systems available from your dentist have customized whitening trays that you fill with an “active” gel yourself. Depending on the level of staining on your teeth, the recommended length of time your dentist prescribes you leave the trays in your mouth and the amount of whitening you want to achieve will determine for how long you have to go through this process.

An at-home whitening kit from your dentist will be created for you with custom-fitted whitening trays moulded for you, with concentrated, professional-strength teeth whitening gel. This tooth whitening gel is used daily to provide a gradual whitening solution.

To get the right independent assessment of how well teeth whitening could work on your own teeth, and any safety precautions you may need to take, call us at (00966) 114640216.

After teeth whitening, it is recommended to avoid consuming foods and drinks that can stain or discolor your teeth. Some examples include:

  1. Coffee
  2. Tea
  3. Soft Drinks
  4. Dark sauces (such as soy sauce, tomato sauce)
  5. Berries (such as blueberries, blackberries)
  6. Beets
  7. Curry
  8. Balsamic vinegar
  9. Tobacco products

It is also recommended to avoid consuming acidic foods and drinks, as they can weaken the enamel of your teeth and make them more susceptible to staining. Examples of acidic foods and drinks include citrus fruits, vinegar, and carbonated beverages. Additionally, it is important to avoid consuming overly hot or cold foods and drinks immediately after teeth whitening, as your teeth may be sensitive during this time.

Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are custom-made for each individual and are designed to gradually shift the teeth into their proper position.

Invisalign is a popular alternative to traditional metal braces because the aligners are virtually invisible, making them a more discreet option for those who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to their orthodontic treatment. Additionally, the aligners are removable, which allows for easier oral hygiene and the ability to eat and drink without restrictions.

Invisalign treatment typically involves wearing a series of aligners that are changed every 1-2 weeks, with each new aligner gradually moving the teeth closer to their desired position. The length of treatment can vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and goals.

Overall, Invisalign is a convenient and effective option for straightening teeth and achieving a more confident smile.

A denture is a removable dental appliance that is used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Dentures are custom-made to fit the individual’s mouth and can be used to replace a few missing teeth (partial dentures) or a full set of teeth (complete dentures).

There are two main types of dentures:

  1.  Complete dentures: These are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. Complete dentures can be either conventional (placed after the remaining teeth are removed and the gums have healed) or immediate (placed immediately after the teeth are removed).
  2.  Partial dentures: These are used when some natural teeth remain. Partial dentures are attached to a metal or plastic framework that holds them in place in the mouth. They help to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

Dentures are designed to restore the appearance and function of the mouth, allowing individuals to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. Proper care and maintenance of dentures, such as regular cleaning and adjustments by a dentist, are important to ensure their longevity and effectiveness.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are often used to protect a weak tooth from further damage, to cover a dental implant, to hold a dental bridge in place, or to improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth. Crowns are typically made from materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of materials.

A dental bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of crowns on either side of the gap created by the missing teeth, with artificial teeth (pontics) in between to fill the space. The crowns are placed over the natural teeth or dental implants adjacent to the gap, anchoring the bridge in place. Bridges can help restore the function and appearance of a smile by improving chewing ability, maintaining facial shape, and preventing the remaining teeth from shifting out of position.

A dental implant is a surgical component that is placed into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for a missing tooth root. It provides a strong foundation for a dental crown, bridge, or denture to be attached, allowing for a natural-looking and functional restoration of the missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are typically made of biocompatible materials such as titanium that fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. They are a popular and effective long-term solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral health and function.

A root canal is a dental procedure that is performed to treat and save a tooth that is infected or severely decayed. During a root canal, the dentist removes the infected or damaged pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth) and cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth. The tooth is then filled and sealed with a material called gutta-percha to prevent further infection. In some cases, a dental crown may be placed over the tooth to protect and strengthen it. Root canals are typically performed by endodontists, who are specialists in treating the inner tissues of the teeth. This procedure can help alleviate pain, save the tooth from extraction, and restore oral health.
