Top oral surgery dental clinic Hampstead? Routine dental examinations are vital, not only to maintain the health of your teeth and gums but also in aiding a healthy body and lifestyle. What is the dentist looking for when he/she checks my teeth? At a routine dental check-up, the dentist is forming a diagnosis of your health in relation to the head and neck (extra-oral), all the areas inside your mouth (intra-oral), your lymph nodes, soft tissues, Temporomandibular joint, facial and chewing muscles and any exposed skin or soft tissue abnormalities. This is all in addition to checking the condition of your gums, the health of your tooth structure, looking for decay and worn or leaking restorations.

It is caused by sticky plaque and hard deposits of tartar. It happens when teeth and gums are not kept clean enough. Without regular cleaning the gums will come away from the tooth creating pockets around the teeth where food and plaque can collect. Pockets are difficult to keep clean and gum disease will get worse if no treatment is not carried out. The next stage of the disease will involve loosing the bone that supports the teeth and the teeth will become loose until they will have to be taken out. Severe gum disease can be an inherited factor or an indicator of problems with general health.
Teeth that are chipped or broken? Just as porcelain veneers can be used to lengthen the appearance of worn down teeth, they can also be used to cover teeth that have been chipped or broken. Your dentist will simply smooth off any rough ages before laying your porcelain veneers over the top of any damaged teeth. Then, all you will be able to see is the flawless outer shell of the veneer, leaving you with perfectly shaped teeth. Porcelain veneers can even be used for wonky teeth and those with gaps in between. Whilst they will not be able to actually straighten your teeth, they can make them appear straighter to the world in just three appointments. This makes them extremely popular with patients facing lengthy treatment time for other ‘straightening’ methods.
