A quick list of things you should NOT do if you want strong and healthy teeth.
There are many lists on the internet of things to do to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Few of these though cover the things that a surprising amount of people do on a regular basis which make a large contribution to the poor health of their teeth.
Although some of these may appear light hearted; the fact is that the damage that can be done to your teeth by these things is certainly no laughing matter. Sadly, we have seen the result of some of these at our very own Bristol dental practice!

How the condition of your teeth and gums can also affect your overall health.
It is a little known fact that the quality of our oral health can also have a major effect on the rest of our body. Poor oral health can even lead to some fairly serious, and potentially life threatening problems.
Most of these problems are more likely to occur when gum disease is present. Although most of us brush our teeth; too many, unfortunately, do not do so for long enough or use a brush that is too worn to be fit for purpose. If your gums are red and sore or there is blood in your saliva when you clean your teeth, there is a strong possibility that you have gum disease and you should arrange to have this checked at our dental practice in Bristol as soon as possible.

How Botox may provide relief from this embarrassing problem.
We all sweat; this is a fact of life and one that helps to keep us healthy by ridding the body of toxins and helping us to cool down instead of overheating.
For some people though, excessive sweating can be a problem and can certainly play on a person’s mind in a social situation, often causing them to withdraw from their social life altogether.
Whilst anti antiperspirants may help some people; for those with excessive perspiration problems, they are unlikely to be effective enough.

Improve your smile at Beau Monde Dental Care with our special offers.
There is no getting away from the fact that cosmetic dental procedures cannot be done ‘on the cheap’. Attempts by some to have procedures done abroad to cut down on costs have, at times, resulted in poor, and sometimes painful, dental surgery that has had a longer term negative effect on their oral health.
Whilst it is understandable that people wish to keep their costs down, taking this approach is likely to be a false economy that can have potentially disastrous results.
At Beau Monde Dental Care in Bristol, we recognise this and look to offer our patients special discounts when we can. A number of these are currently available allowing you to transform your smile at a sensible price.

Whiter teeth for a younger looking smile at Beau Monde Dental Care.
Although we may not like to think about it too much, all of us, rich, poor or somewhere in-between, are getting older each day.
Moment by moment, we barely think about this but if we look back over the last few years of our lives, most of us will have noticed some physical changes. As well as generally slowing down as we get older, most of us will have added a few lines to our face, perhaps more grey hair or even hair loss. One thing that is almost certain though is that our teeth will no longer be as white as they once were.
Not just lifestyle….

Teeth realignment is not for teenagers alone.
Remember when you were told that you needed dental braces as a teenager? Like many, when you heard this you probably refused to have the treatment done. After all, your teeth weren’t that crooked were they?
Although probably most teenagers did accept having braces, a significant number certainly did not, deterred by their appearance and the amount of potential bullying that was likely to follow. Given that the teenage years are important in terms of building a social life and developing character, it is hardly surprise that wearing “train track” braces did not come very high up the list of ‘should dos’!
What can be done in adult life?

Solutions for bad breath at our Bristol dental practice.
Bad breath may not be noticed by the person who actually suffers from it; in fact it is really quite difficult to smell your own breath. You can be sure though that, when you talk to others, you will notice their reaction as they reel back if your breath is smelly.
There are a number of factors which can contribute to halitosis (bad breath) and, by and large, it is entirely avoidable provided that certain factors are considered and the correct action taken.

Good early dental habits that last a lifetime
Those of us who have children will probably be constantly reminded about how the world revolves around them. The chances are, if we can think back that far, that we also felt the same at that age. Of course, as adults, we now realise that we depended far more heavily on our parents to guide us than we realised and that includes our health care.
It can tempting, as a parent, to give way to a child’s demands simply for some peace and quiet. However, when it comes to their craving for sweets, giving way may well set bad habits that will be continued throughout their lives and should be avoided as much as possible in order to prevent poor dental health.
Recent news reports have stated that around a third of all children in the UK suffer from dental decay to some extent. This figure could, undoubtedly, be reduced if a better awareness of dental health was instilled at an early age.

Corrective dental procedures for treating gum disease in Bristol.
Although gum disease is something that will affect a number of us during our lifetime, often without us even being aware of it; it should, none the less, be taken seriously as it can have devastating consequences if it is not treated in its early stages.
Whilst gum disease can even be treated by a simple improvement to a patient’s oral health regime, including better brushing and flossing, if it is left to advance beyond this stage, then some dental treatment will be necessary. The reality is though that gum disease should not reach this stage if regular appointments at our Bristol dentist are maintained, allowing us to monitor your oral health.

Some cosmetic dental procedures offer much more than simply aesthetic improvement for our Bristol patients
We are all familiar with cosmetic surgery. Thanks to many celebrities over the years we now know about the wide range of procedures that are available. Although cosmetic dentistry is perhaps still less well known, it is gradually entering the thoughts of an increasing number of people throughout the UK.
At Beau Monde Dental Care of Bristol, although we are a relatively new dental practice which opened in June 2013, we are now able to provide cosmetic dentistry which offers a number of significant benefits to our patients.
