Flexible Dentures: What Do They Offer?

Flexible dentures are said to be the next best thing if a patient doesn’t want to try out regular dentures. Why? Because the product rids itself of the problems that come when owning or using regular dentures.

Let’s look at all the qualities of Flexible Dentures that trumps those found in regular dentures:

Comfort – the tough and rigid exterior of regular dentures makes it uncomfortable especially for new users. Well, a flexible denture replaces this tough exterior with a flexible one those allowing it stretch accordingly.

No More Slipping – because its foundation is a lot more flexible, this allows the product to cling to the gums better than regular dentures. The latter has always had this problem of setting loose especially in times of chewing or speech.

Aesthetic – since the material of a flexible denture is clearer, this allows the natural color of your gums to show. A more natural look equals a better aesthetic overall.

The basics of flexible dentures

Most dentures are made from metal or a hard resin. This has both benefits and drawbacks. Traditional dentures are durable and don’t need a ton of care. They have a strong base that holds its shape. But they take some getting used to, as they often have to be held in place with the cheeks and tongue. They often require adhesive to make sure they stay in place. And hard dentures are brittle. If they’re dropped or smacked hard enough they’ll shatter and become unusable. Metal dentures are more durable but less comfortable.

If you only have a partial denture, you can use a flexible nylon one instead. This has several advantages. They don’t take as long as regular dentures to manufacture. If you drop them you don’t have to worry about them shattering.

Flexible dentures tend to hold to the gum better than regular dentures, and often don’t need adhesive or other measures that are used to hold on traditional styles. They’re also the best option for people that are allergic to the materials in traditional dentures. Others might have difficulty opening their mouth enough to insert a regular denture. Flexible dentures may be the only option.

Schedule Your Dental Check-Up to Start the New Year Right!

Taking care of your oral health is an investment in your overall health in 2021 and beyond! Schedule your dental check-up today!

When it comes time to set your new year resolutions, put a dental check-up on the list!  One of the simplest and most effective resolutions you can make is to schedule a dental check-up.  Good oral hygiene is obviously something that will make a difference in your life, but you might not be aware of just how much of a positive effect it can have on your whole health.

Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene are the best way to protect your oral health. Without proper brushing and flossing, plaque will begin to build up along the gum line in your mouth, which creates a breeding ground for bacteria. An infection in the gums, known as gingivitis, can lead to periodontitis, a more serious gum infection and potentially cause more serious health risks.

There are easy steps that can be made to protect and preserve the health of your mouth and ultimately your overall health. Good oral hygiene is essential, including:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss daily – preferably at night
  • Eat a healthy diet and limit sugar and in between-meal snacks
  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months (or sooner if bristles are frayed)
    Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings
  • Avoid tobacco use
  • Contact Neem as soon as an oral health problem arises

Full Denture, Partial Denture, Flexi denture

If you’ve lost a few or all your natural teeth, partial or full dentures can replace your missing tooth and enhance your smile and your chewing ability.

When you have tooth loss, Neem Dental Clinic can give you back your charming smile by adopting a Partial Denture or Full Denture treatment plan that matches your preferences both financially and aesthetically.

Benefits of complete and partial dentures include enhanced aesthetic look, improved chewing ability, improved speech, and enhanced oral health. The tooth component of the denture is made up of ceramic material to ensure that they are durable. The bottom part of the denture features an acrylic which fits perfectly over the gums.

Full Denture

When all of your lower or upper teeth are missing, a complete denture is a fantastic solution  to replacing them. The starting point in crafting a full denture is to take impressions. An exact model of your mouth is crafted from these impressions, and the lab applies this model to create the denture footing.

Partial Denture

When several teeth in an arch are missing, a partial denture is an effective solution to replacing them. Partials are extractable devices that are held in place by clasps that fit around a few of the remaining teeth.

Flexi Denture

Flexible dentures are an alternative to the traditional metal-based dentures. They don’t involve rock-hard attachments to the remaining natural teeth, offer a much better fit and look very natural. The appeal of flexi denture related to their better design, fit, and materials. Also, they are made faster when compared with traditional dentures, and also the nylon resin will never break

Your New ‘Smile in A Day’ With Composite Bonding

When some people consider making cosmetic dental improvements to their teeth, they assume this will be an expensive, painful and drawn out process requiring lots of visits to the dentist. However, thanks to advancements in dental techniques and materials, the Neem Dental Clinic, Harrow is able to offer a ‘new smile in a day’ using composite bonding to help improve the colour, shape, spacing and overall appearance of your teeth.

This provides the ideal solution for those wanting fast, effective and instant results without the need for multiple appointments or painful, costly treatments.

Your New ‘Smile in A Day’ With Composite Bonding

What Is Composite Bonding?

Composite bonding is an advanced dental technique that can be utilised to repair cracked, chipped or discoloured teeth, as well as closing gaps or helping to build up broken down or shorter teeth.

The bonding material used is a tooth coloured composite resin that is applied to the existing teeth and then expertly moulded by a skilled dental clinician to correct imperfections.

Who Can Benefit From Composite Bonding?

Once the planning stages and whitening have been completed, composite bonding provides a simple and painless solution, which allows us to give patients a beautiful smile makeover – and an instant confidence boost – in just one session.

This innovative dental procedure is minimally invasive making it suitable for even the most nervous of patients and can be used to help correct a wide range of cosmetic dental issues including;

  • Cracks – helps to prevent cracks from extending further as well as minimising their appearance and any discolouration that may have happened as a result.
  • Chips – can be restored to avoid further damage and create an even, flawless surface.
  • Gaps – building outwards helps to close the space between teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth – unevenly shaped, mismatched or oddly sized teeth can be added to and shaped to blend in seamlessly with the teeth around them.
  • Discolouration – improves the appearance of stained teeth for a whiter smile
  • Exposed roots – can be used to add protection to exposed root surfaces which helps prevent painful sensitivity.

What Does The Composite Bonding Procedure Involve?

The specifics of the procedure will depend on your individual dental needs, the amount of bonding that is being carried out and the types of flaws that are being corrected.

Firstly, your dentist will colour match the composite resin to your teeth in order to deliver the most natural finish. Depending on the desired results, you may wish to undergo whitening treatment prior to the bonding in order to brighten your smile.

In some areas, it may be necessary to lightly roughen the surface of the natural tooth to help the resin adhere better to the teeth. The resin is then applied and carefully shaped and moulded to correct the imperfections and look like a natural tooth. A special UV light is then used to help harden the resin and the teeth are polished.

Because this treatment is relatively straight forward and requires no injections or anaesthetic, it can often be performed in just one session taking around 30 minutes per tooth, which means you can leave us with a brand new smile that you will love!

Benefits Of A Composite Bonding Same Day Smile Makeover

There are many great advantages to undergoing a smile makeover with our composite bonding artistry services. Here are just some of the many benefits;

  • Unlike some other treatments nothing needs making in a lab or sending away, everything is made and applied in your appointment, so you be done in just one session.
  • This treatment is in most cases completely painless with no need for anaesthetic.
  • It is extremely cost effective and tends to be one of the least expensive cosmetic treatments.
  • Because the original teeth are preserved and remain intact the treatment can be repeated with no damage to the teeth.
  • Although composite bonding doesn’t last as long as some long-term solutions, results can last from around 5-10 years if cared for properly.

It is worth noting that although composite bonding can be used to correct a wide range of imperfections it might not be suitable for everyone and is best suited to mild or minor cosmetic issues. If you are interested in the treatment, then it’s best to discuss it with your dentist to find out if you are a suitable candidate or if an alternative treatment such as tooth whitening, dental veneers or Invisalign would be a more effective, long term solution .

Are You Ready For A New Smile?

If you aren’t 100% happy with your teeth or are self-conscious about discolouration, gaps, chips or unevenness then composite bonding could be the perfect solution. Our highly skilled team of dental clinicians are on hand to deliver fast, pain free and effective same day smile makeovers that our patients love.

DEEP TEETH CLEANING VS ROUTINE CLEANING

Do I need a deep teeth cleaning?

One of the most common scenarios we see are patients who haven’t been to the dentist in a while and are told they need a deep teeth cleaning. They don’t have any pain, which makes them skeptical of this diagnosis given the cost of deep cleaning teeth, and come to me for a second opinion.

Deep teeth cleanings are often misdiagnosed when a routine teeth cleaning is really all that is needed for the patient. Unfortunately, some dental clinics take a more aggressive approach when prescribing this treatment. To ease the patients’ mind, I tell them there are several signs deep cleaning treatment is needed. All of which we can show them during the appointment.

Before having that conversation, I think it’s important to understand the purpose of deep cleaning teeth.

What is deep cleaning teeth?

Deep cleaning teeth – also known as scaling and root planning, or non-surgical periodontal therapy – is the process of removing tartar that forms beneath the gum line to stop the progression of gum disease.

If left untreated, the accumulation of tartar (hardened plaque) can result in inflamed gums that break the seal between the tooth and healthy gum tissue. Thus, allowing the disease to migrate down the root and cause more inflammation. This inflammation is the first sign of gum disease – it’s called gingivitis.

At this stage, gum disease is reversible. However, it must be treated, which is where a deep teeth cleaning comes in. If you put off deep cleaning teeth for too long, the disease will progress and you will begin to lose bone around your teeth, eventually causing tooth loss. Once the disease progresses to this point (periodontitis), it is irreversible.

What’s the difference between deep cleaning teeth and a routine teeth cleaning?

A routine teeth cleaning is what most people experience when they visit the dentist clinic. It is very unlikely that someone who visits the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning will need a deep cleaning. Rather, it’s typically necessary when someone hasn’t been to the dentist for a teeth cleaning for many years or does not practice proper hygiene on a daily basis. There are many habits and behaviors that lead to rapid tartar buildup, and eventually gum disease, when tartar is ignored: sipping on sugary drinks throughout the day, forgetting to brush teeth and gums regularly, never flossing your teeth, and more.

Signs you need a deep teeth cleaning

Should you need a deep cleaning, it’s important that you get one, and soon. There are several telltale signs that you can look for to confirm this diagnosis – both at home and with your dentist. Signs you can look for at home include:

  1. Bleeding gums when you brush or floss Bleeding or swollen gums are one of the first signs of gum disease. This is your body’s way of trying to get rid of the disease, and is caused by a buildup of plaque along the gum line. You may also have sore gums, or gums that look red and puffy.
  2. Bad breathConsistently bad breath – not just in the mornings or after a meal – is another sign that you may need a deep cleaning. This is caused by the bacteria in your mouth that is actively destroying your bone.

Another sign to look for is tartar (or dental calculus) around the bottom front teeth. If you notice this, or have bad breath and/or bleeding gums, it’s best to make a dentist appointment to have this checked out. During your appointment, the dentist will be able to confirm your diagnosis. Signs they look for – which they will be able to show you – include:

  1. Periodontal pockets of 4mm or greaterIf you think back to your last dentist appointment, you may recall the hygienist spouting out a list of numbers. These are likely the measurements of your periodontal pockets, or the vertical space between the tooth and gum. Healthy gums have pockets that measure no more than 3 mm. A deep cleaning is needed when you have one or more pocket per quadrant that are 4mm or greater. At 5mm, the patient will be diagnosed with periodontitis, and at 6mm or 7mm with advanced periodontitis.
  2. Radiographic bone lossThe combination of periodontal pockets and tartar buildup will eventually begin to affect the bone and change its structure. The bone will become scalloped and uneven and bone volume will decrease. If you need a deep teeth cleaning, you will have bone loss that is visible on an x-ray. Your dentist will be able to show you on the x-ray where your bone is, and where it should be. At this point, the damage is irreversible. But it’s important to stop it before it gets worse.

If you have both periodontal pockets and bone loss, you need a deep cleaning. However, you may not have bad breath or gum bleeding. Not all symptoms are required for a definitive diagnosis. The two most important signs to look for are those that your dentist will look for.

If in doubt, get a second opinion and ask the dentist to show you the periodontal pockets and bone loss. This will be very easy for them to do and give you peace of mind knowing that your diagnosis is accurate.

If you’re unsure of whether or not you need a deep teeth cleaning, schedule an appointment with our dentist in Harrow, Middlesex. We’ll be happy to confirm your diagnosis and deep clean your teeth.

Cosmetic Bonding in Harrow

Improve Your Smile with Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile.

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic Bonding can be considered to fix the following dental issues:

  • To repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discoloured teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede

Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

Cosmetic Bonding takes little to no preparation. Your Neem dentist will match the shade of your existing teeth to select a composite resin colour that will closely match the colour of your tooth.

There are two forms of Cosmetic Bonding: direct composite bonding and adhesive bonding

Direct Composite Bonding – This is the process where dentists use tooth-coloured composites white or natural-looking materials) to fill cavities, repair chips or cracks, close gaps between your teeth and build up the worn-down edges of teeth. The composite materials may also be directly applied and sculpted to the surfaces of teeth that show most prominently when you smile, for minimally invasive smile makeovers. In the dental world these are called direct composite veneers but generically known by most to be called “bonding.”

Adhesive Bonding – This is the process of attaching a restoration to a tooth. This method is commonly used for aesthetic crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and inlays/onlays. After your Neem dentist has chosen a colour that matches the shade of your teeth, he/she will roughen the surface of the tooth using a gentle phosphoric acid solution. Soon after the roughing agent is removed, a liquid bonding agent is applied. The tooth-coloured putty-like resin is applied to the tooth, then moulded and smoothed until it’s in the desired shape. The material is then hardened with an ultraviolet curing light, and the previous step is repeated until the filing or direct composite veneer has reached its final shape. Your Neem dentist will then polish the material until it matches the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.


Pros and Cons of Cosmetic Bonding

Pros – Cosmetic Bonding is one of the most common and least expensive of cosmetic dentistry procedures. It can usually be done in one short visit unless multiple teeth are involved. Another advantage to bonding is that compared to veneers and crowns, it requires little to no removal of tooth enamel. Most procedures involving dental bonding do not require anaesthesia.

Cons – The material used in dental bonding is not as strong as your real teeth, so biting on fingernails or chewing on pens can actually chip the material. Bonding only lasts a few years before it needs to be repaired and is not as strong as other restorative procedures, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings. It is also not as stain resistant as crowns.

Because there are some limitations to the restorative impacts that bonding can have, some dentists may view it as best suited for small cosmetic changes, for temporary correction of cosmetic defects, and for correction of teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (for example, front teeth). Your Neem dentist will be able to tell you if bonding is right for you or may make other recommendations relative to your personal conditions.
