Do you find yourself stressed recently? Is it starting to have a noticeable impact on your mood and day to day life? If so, it may also be having an often overlooked impact on your oral hygiene as well. In which case, it’s important to be aware of the potential symptoms of stress on your oral health. And, more importantly, ways in which you can help to reduce these symptoms for a happier, less stressful, and mouth-happy life. 

Symptoms of Stress 

When it comes to stress and your dental health, understanding what is a result of stress can often be quite difficult. Especially as a majority of the time, you may be stressed without realising this fact until later. However, once you do recognise the signs of stress, some ways you may find it affecting your oral health may include: 

  • Sores – canker sores are small white/grey spots that develop in your mouth, sometimes in isolation or in greater clusters. The exact cause of these sores is unknown, but it is likely due to a lowered immune system. Stress is also thought to heighten the likelihood of gaining these. 
  • Teeth Grinding – when you are stressed, it can result in either clenching or grinding of your teeth. If this is already a problem for you then stress can only worsen the symptoms. 
  • Over Eating – during stressful periods of your life, snacking on sugary food or drinks can become all too frequent. All of which can increase your chances of tooth decay and gum disease in the long term.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene – stress can result in mood changes, which may cause you to take less care or avoid brushing altogether. This can result in increased numbers of cavities or the development of more serious dental issues. 
  • Gum Disease – over time, poor hygiene can result in long-term dental health issues such as gum disease. This is a serious issue which can then result in bigger dental problems, so it is better to catch these symptoms early to prevent escalation. 

How to Reduce Stress 

Reducing stress at the source is the best way to help combat some of the above symptoms. However, fitting these methods into your everyday life may not always be that easy. That is why, for the most part, it can be important to make time for stress-reduction and making it a priority. As only then will you be able to help improve your overall health, including your long-term oral health. 

Good ways to battle stress include: 

  • Exercise – going for a run, joining the gym and even cycling can all be great ways for you to improve the amount of exercise in your life. And over time this can help to reduce your stress levels exponentially. Particularly as during exercise your body releases serotonin; the body chemical which improves your mood. 
  • Caffeine – found in coffee, tea and energy drinks, caffeine in high doses can work to increase your anxiety and stress levels over time. Each individual has different caffeine tolerances, so it is important to know your limit. If you get jitters, anxious or feel different when drinking caffeine, then it is important to reduce your intake. 
  • Socialise – spending time with friends and family during periods of stress can be extremely beneficial to your mood and managing said stress. Especially if you find yourself becoming isolated. Arranging days out, meetups and even inviting people over to your house can be a good way to ensure that you remain social even during stressful periods. 
  • Take a Walk – sometimes removing yourself from the environment causing you stress is the best way to help reduce its effect on your mental wellbeing. Try and find a scenic nature walk with lots of interesting things to catch your attention, you may find your stress floating away! 

Visit Your Dentist 

Of course, cutting out stress from your life isn’t always a possibility. But, good oral hygiene and caring for your teeth health is important alongside these everyday stress factors. Which is why visiting your oral hygienist is especially important during periods of stress in your life, as you are far likelier to be experiencing issues or to develop issues during this time. 

As such, book an appointment or call our friendly reception team on 01925 756565 to help ensure you have strong oral hygiene, no matter what life throws at you.

Whether you suffer from muscle tension, lip lines, forehead frown lines, teeth clenching or several other issues, you may have considered a facial rejuvenation treatment. In which case, you may have researched a number of different practitioners and ways in which you can seek out these treatments privately. But, have you ever considered visiting your dentist for your anti-wrinkle treatments? 

Though perhaps a little surprising at first, a dental expert has a vast array of knowledge when it comes to the inner workings of the face. With that in mind, here are some of the best reasons that a dentist is a perfect choice when it comes to your facial rejuvenation procedures. 

Advanced Knowledge

At Dental Solutions, our principal dentist is trained and experienced to carry out facial rejuvenation treatments. Gavin has over 12-years of experience in aesthetic treatments; using his dental knowledge of facial muscle anatomy and nerves, all procedures can be performed with extreme precision. Performing injections every day, Gavin has a steady hand and practice needed to create a natural, well-rested looking, result. 

He has been trained to complete both Botox and dermal filler treatments. Anti-wrinkle injections are perfect for fine lines and helping the muscles to relax, whereas dermal fillers can also help reduce the appearance of scars–either from acne or injury. 

Botox for Teeth Grinding 

One surprising application of Botox and other similar anti-wrinkle treatments is to help reduce teeth grinding and other muscle-related issues. Bruxism can cause prolonged pain and headaches, whilst also reducing enamel and potentially even causing a chipped tooth. Though most treatments look to help reduce dental damage, anti-wrinkle treatments could be the best way to prevent grinding from occurring from the start. 

When applied, Botox can limit the full movement of muscles (which wears off over time). Injecting into the masseter muscle in the jaw and the temporalis muscles can help to reduce teeth grinding at night. Though not a permanent solution, it can be a good way to halt Bruxism until other oral solutions (such as a mouth guard) can be devised. 

Save Face Certified 

Here at Dental Solutions, we are officially a Save Face aesthetic treatment provider. We have been individually assessed by Save Face, a Standards Authority which has a robust set of requirements that are recognised by NHS England and the Department of England. Save Face is currently the only government-regulated register for facial rejuvenation treatments.   

We achieved this certification in 2017, after achieving over 50 positive reviews on the platform.

November is mouth cancer awareness month and it is estimated that around 600 people will be diagnosed with mouth cancer in the UK this month alone. With figures of mouth cancer cases expected to rise over the coming years, it is important that we are all mouth aware in order to identify any signs or symptoms as and when they appear. 

Early detection typically results in a 90% survival rate, so getting symptoms checked out as quickly as possible is vital. Having regular dental checkups, as well as carrying out self-examinations, will help to highlight any changes in and around your mouth. 

Mouth Cancer Awareness

How To Spot Mouth Cancer

Mouth cancer does not discriminate and can affect everyone, but typically it is associated with men over the age of 40. However, we all should be paying close attention to what is going on inside our mouths and, should we spot any unexplained or unusual changes, take urgent action. Mouth cancer can strike in a number of different areas, such as the gums, cheeks, lips and tongue and, given that early detection is crucial, being mouth aware and knowing the warning signs will increase your chances of survival.

Three signs and symptoms which you absolutely should not ignore are:

  • Ulcers which do not heal within 3 weeks
  • Red and/or white patches in the mouth
  • Unusual swelling or lumps in the mouth, neck or head area

If you spot any of these symptoms, then you should see your dentist or doctor immediately. If in doubt, get checked out. Mouth cancer can be spotted in the early stages by visiting your dentist for a thorough mouth examination. 

Reducing Your Risk Of Mouth Cancer

Although mouth cancer is strongly associated with men over 40, lifestyle also plays a huge role in developing mouth cancer. Around 9 in 10 cases are linked to lifestyle risk factors, such as alcohol and smoking. The influence which our daily habits and choices have on our overall health is huge, but by amending them and making small changes towards healthier day-to-day choices, you can help to reduce your chance of developing mouth cancer. 

When it comes to mouth cancer awareness, there are five key risks which you should be aware of:

Tobacco – this is the leading cause of mouth cancer and transforms saliva into a deadly cocktail which damages cells in your mouth, which can then turn cancerous.

Alcohol  – Excessive alcohol consumption is linked to over a third of mouth cancer cases in men and a fifth in women. Heavy smokers and drinkers are up to 35 times more at risk of developing mouth cancer.  

HPV (the Human papillomavirus) – the world’s most common sexually-transmitted virus is increasingly being linked to the rise of mouth cancer cases and is expected to become one of the leading causes of the disease in the future. 

Diet  – Research has shown that a diet which is high in fresh fruit and vegetables can reduce the risk of developing mouth cancer in the future. 

Chewing or Smokeless Tobacco  – Smokeless and chewing tobacco is not a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes, contrary to popular belief, and is very popular in Asia, USA and Europe. 

Be Mouth Aware

There are more than 8,300 people diagnosed with mouth cancer each year in the UK and, in many cases, can have a lasting and substantial impact on the quality of life, even affecting how you talk, breathe and eat. Being mouth aware is vital and, as well as attending regular check-ups with your dentist, you can also carry out frequent checks for changes in your mouth, head and neck at home. Even if you have no teeth, it is vital that you regularly check for changes in the mouth. 

  • Look for red, white or dark patches on the inside of your cheeks. Put your index finger inside your cheek and your thumb on the outside. Gently squeeze to feel for any ulcers, lumps or tenderness. 
  • Look for any changes in colour or texture on the surface of your tongue and check the sides for swelling or ulcers. 
  • Run your finger along the roof and floor of your mouth, checking for any lumps or ulcers. 
  • Pull down on your lower lip and check for any sores or changes in colour. Use your thumb and index finger to feel for any lumps or changes in texture.

Mouth cancer can affect anybody, so it is important that we know what to check for. If you have any worries or concerns about changes in your mouth, or would just like to book a check-up, then get in touch today. Or call our reception on 01925 756565

What are Zygomatic Implants?

by on 30th October 2019 | Posted in blog

Jillian, a successful zygomatic implant patient. Read her story here – in her own words!

If you have been turned away for traditional dental implants, zygomatic implants could provide the solution for you. Zygomatic implants are a real alternative for patients for whom traditional dental implants are unsuitable. Our implant dentist Richard Brookshaw is very skilled in extreme bone loss cases; he is one of only a handful of surgeons nationwide who is able to carry out zygoma implant surgery in patients with bone loss, using specially designed zygomatic implants. 

In this blog, we take a look at some of the benefits of zygomatic implants and why they just might be the best option for you. 

What Are Zygomatic Implants?

Zygomatic implants differ from other types of implants such as All-on-4, as they are anchored in the zygomatic or cheekbone hence the name. Typically, the zygomatic implant is ideal for patients who may have inadequate or poor quality bone in their upper jaw, and so regular dental implants would be impossible.  When dentures have been worn for a long time, it can lead to the loss of large amounts of supporting bone which creates a ‘collapse’ or loss of face height. Zygomatic implants correct this loss of facial structure which also has a rejuvenating effect to the appearance of the face.

Zygoma Implants

Dr Brookshaw and patient Janice discuss her zygoma implants in this video, explaining why it was the best solution for her after so many years of struggling to find a dentist who could provide her with a fixed solution; https://youtu.be/hv3fE6ortKE .

What is the Procedure Like?

Although Zygomatic implants are considerably longer than conventional implants, the treatment is very similar from the patient’s perspective. The placement of Zygomatic implants is minimally invasive, using our image guided surgery. Also, to make the experience as comfortable as possible, this treatment always takes place under sedation.

Same-Day Treatment 

Once the surgical placement of the zygomatic implant is completed the bridge is fitted the same day. This removes the need for a waiting period for grafts to heal; meaning patients can be free of their dentures practically overnight. The whole procedure is completed in a single session, meaning you don’t have to wait six months for a confident new smile. The zygomatic treatment plan is also a faster alternative when compared against more complicated bone grafting procedures. 

Recovery Times 

One of the biggest benefits when it comes to zygomatic implants is the fact that the recovery time is relatively speedy. As mentioned above, the dentures can be fitted the same day as your surgery. But, the surgery itself does not require a bone graft and thus the recovery time can also be much faster –between 4 to 6 months. 

What Our Patients Have to Say

Joyce's Story

In terms of the implant treatment on the day itself I had no discomfort, whilst feeling aware of what was going on around me most of the time. I was expecting pain in the following days but instead it was more a feeling of discomfort with a bit of swelling and minor bruising on my jawline which was controlled quite easily with ibuprofen.

When I went back to work after a week, my colleagues were so complimentary – they just couldn’t believe how natural they looked. My confidence has really grown since the treatment – I no longer cover my mouth which I used to do before the treatment.

Joyce’s Story – READ MORE


“I can’t say enough to praise and thank the team for what they have done for me. My teeth feel and look natural – they feel normal and completely secure in my mouth like my own used to be. I can eat an apple once again without wondering if my plate would snap. 

I think that my confidence had drained away before this treatment – I used to avoid social situations where eating was involved. My wife has noticed that I smile a lot more now than I used to before treatment and that my confidence is back. I’m so much happier than I was!”

Do you ever feel a twinge in your teeth when eating or drinking something hot or cold? The discomfort and pain associated with sensitive teeth can vary, but it’s a common pain that many people suffer from. Learning to manage and help deal with the symptoms with tooth sensitivity is therefore quite important for your daily life. 

To find out what’s causing this discomfort, you should visit your dentist for a check-up and ask about tooth sensitivity. Your dentist will be able to identify the cause of your sensitive teeth symptoms and rule out other causes of tooth pain, such as tooth decay, infection, disease or injury.

Who Suffers from Sensitive Teeth?

Many people suffer from sensitive teeth and it can start at any time. It is more common in people aged between 20 and 40, and women are more likely to be affected than men.

What Causes Sensitive Teeth?

The part of the tooth we can see has a layer of enamel that protects the softer dentine underneath. If the dentine is exposed, a tooth can become sensitive. This usually happens where the tooth and the gum meet and the enamel layer is much thinner. Some usual causes of sensitivity are:-

  • Brushing too hard (‘toothbrush abrasion’), and brushing from side to side, can cause enamel to be worn away – particularly where the teeth meet the gums. The freshly exposed dentine may then become sensitive. It is advised to brush in small, circular motions, or to use an electric toothbrush with a pressure sensor to prevent you brushing too hard.
  • Dental erosion: this is loss of tooth enamel caused by attacks of acid from acidic food and drinks. If enamel is worn away, the dentine underneath is exposed which may lead to sensitivity. Gums may naturally recede (shrink back), and the roots of the teeth will become exposed and can be more sensitive. Root surfaces do not have an enamel layer to protect them.
  • Acidic foods and drinks are bad for your enamel and can lead to the erosion that causes sensitive teeth. In which case, you need to actively tailor your diet to avoid either food or drink which can negatively impact your enamel and worsen the sensitivity in your teeth. Try to cut out or limit the following from your day to day intake: 
      1. Alcoholic beverages 
      2. Fresh fruit juice
      3. Fizzy drinks. 
      4. Herbal teas
      5. Sweets (anything too sugary). 
  • Gums may naturally recede (shrink back), and the roots of the teeth will become exposed and can be more sensitive. Root surfaces do not have an enamel layer to protect them.
  • Gum disease: a build-up of plaque or tartar can cause the gum to recede down the tooth and even destroy the bony support of the tooth. Pockets can form in the gums around the tooth, making the area difficult to keep clean and the problem worse.
  • Tooth grinding: this is a habit which involves clenching and grinding the teeth together. This can cause the enamel of the teeth to be worn away, making the teeth sensitive.
  • cracked tooth or filling: a cracked tooth is one that has become broken.
  • Tooth whitening: some patients have sensitivity for a short time during bleaching or afterwards. Talk to your dental team about this before having treatment.

When are Teeth More Likely to be Sensitive?

You are more likely to feel the sensitivity when drinking or eating something cold, from cold air catching your teeth, and sometimes with hot foods or drinks. Some people have sensitivity when they have sweet or acidic food and drinks. The pain can come and go, with some times being worse than others.

Is There Anything I Should Avoid if I Have Sensitive Teeth?

You may find that hot, cold, sweet or acidic drinks, or foods like ice cream, can bring on sensitivity, so you may want to avoid these. If you have sensitivity when brushing your teeth with cold water from the tap, you may need to use warm water instead. It is important to keep brushing your teeth regularly – if you don’t, this could make the problem worse.

How Can I Prevent Sensitive Teeth?

  • Brush your teeth last thing at night and at least one other time during the day, with fluoride toothpaste containing at least 1350ppm (parts per million) of fluoride – you will find this information in the ingredients section. Consider using toothpaste specially designed for sensitive teeth. Use small, circular movements with a soft-to medium-bristled brush. Try to avoid brushing your teeth from side to side.
  • Change your toothbrush every two to three months, or sooner if it becomes worn.
  • Don’t brush straight after eating – some foods and drinks can soften the enamel of your teeth, so leave it for at least an hour before you brush.
    • Have sugary foods, and fizzy and acidic drinks, less often. Try to have them just at mealtimes.
  • Prevention – good oral care; Though managing your teeth sensitivity is all and well good, preventing it in the first place would be ideal. To manage this you need to ensure that you have regular visits with your hygienist. With good care, you should be able to prevent further breakdown of your tooth enamel and thus help reduce the likelihood of your sensitivity getting worse. 
  • Regular checkups; visit your dental team regularly, as often as they recommend, or sooner if you are having any problems. Sometimes we have sensitive teeth due to thin enamel, but sometimes there are more serious issues underlying the issue. For example, if you have sharp pains in one tooth in particular you may be experiencing tooth decay. As such, a simple tooth filling may help to reduce your sensitivity as it deals with the root of the issue. 
  • If you grind your teeth, talk to your dental team about whether you should have a mouthguard made, to wear at night.
  • If you are thinking about having your teeth whitened, discuss sensitivity with your dental team before starting treatment.

Ultimately, sensitivity is caused by a number of issues. If you are concerned or would like more information on how to manage this issue, then it is best to seek a dental appointment to get to the bottom of the issue.

Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces

by on 14th October 2019 | Posted in blog

Katy, one of our happy Invisalign patients! Read her story here.

For some adults, the idea of getting braces can be quite an embarrassing reality to face. Which means choosing what type of braces to get can be of paramount importance to ensure this embarrassment is kept as minimal as important. For most, this choice lies between either Invisalign or traditional fixed braces.

Therefore, here are some of the considerations you need to make when it comes to choosing between Invisalign and traditional braces. 

Invisible” Braces

As one of the biggest selling points of the brand, Invisalign is known as the ‘invisible’ brace. They have earned this moniker because when wearing these braces they are almost undetectable in day to day life. For most adults, this sleek and discreet solution is one of the factors which makes this treatment so attractive. 

Fixed Braces VS. Removable Clear Aligners

When it comes to Invisalign vs. traditional braces, one of the defining factors is the ability to remove them. For Invisalign users, the patient is able to remove the aligners whenever they eat. Whereas traditional braces are bonded brackets which are fixed on every tooth and connected via a flexible wire, which is then adjusted at every subsequent appointment. These consistent adjustments then leads to straighter teeth at the end of the treatment. 

If being able to remove a brace is important to you, then Invisalign is the clear and obvious choice. Having the ability to remove the aligners also makes routine cleaning like brushing and flossing much easier, which is important to maintain during any orthodontic treatment. 

Length of Treatment 

One of the biggest considerations to make when it comes to braces is the length of treatment. A long treatment is often not ideal, as it can put some people off from the treatment entirely. On average, all treatment types can have a varied length depending on your individual case. Anywhere between 6 and 18 months is typical for both Invisalign and traditional braces. 

For that reason, you will need to seek an individual consultation to determine your potential treatment length for either choice. That way you will be able to make an informed decision which is tailored to your needs.

Cost 

Typically, the cost of a treatment can be one of the factors which drives the choice of orthodontic treatment. And the cost can differ depending on the severity of your case. For example, you may be able to choose from either Invisalign Lite or i7 – which are both typically shorter treatment lengths. These are ideal when only minor alignment issues need to be addressed. With shorter treatment times, the cost is also reduced. 

If you are struggling with the choice between Invisalign and traditional braces, then book a free consultation today. Our expert team of orthodontists can help make the choice become clear with a treatment plan that is suited to your case needs. Contact our friendly reception team on 01925 756565 to find out more.

Jean

I was first recommended to Dental Solutions by the insurance company after a bad coach accident damaged my teeth on holiday in Tenerife back in 2004. The team at the practice were absolutely brilliant at restoring the extensive damage caused by the accident and helping me to smile again.

Ken

As a result of the way that Jean had been cared for, when a crown kept breaking, which then led to the breakdown of the tooth altogether, Dental Solutions was the first port of call for me when I needed an implant. 

Now retired, I have had a long career as a highly decorated chef, and I still keep in touch with the industry, so it’s important to keep my smile in good shape, without any dreaded gaps. Both Jean and I are very active fundraisers within Lions Clubs International and still love to travel, and we both feel that a nice smile is important when meeting new people.

Gavin fitted a temporary bridge to ensure that the missing tooth wasn’t noticeable while I had the necessary scans and impressions. This was to ensure that the implant could be secured with enough bone and that the implant looked as natural as possible in my mouth.

The implant process itself was painless on the day- just a little scratch with the needle, then I felt nothing more.

Now the implant is complete I would say it feels great, just marginally different to the other teeth in my mouth. I follow the care instructions that the team at Dental Solutions have given me which is a rigorous 2 minute job every morning with a tepe brush.

We can both highly recommend Dental Solutions for the first-rate care that they have given us over the years.

For more information on how we can help to restore your smile, with dental implants or any of our other cosmetic procedures, simply call now on 01925 756565. Our friendly reception team are waiting to help.

I first came to Dental Solutions after a referral from Museum Street dentists in Warrington. I was suffering from some missing teeth and associated bone loss and gum recession. I did look around at other dentists in the Warrington area where I live, but I really liked the Facebook page at Dental Solutions and actually recognised a couple of people in their gallery of patient stories, so I decided to call them for a free consultation.

The practice is lovely–just located on the Canalside in Lymm village. From the moment I walked in it had a great relaxed feeling, you can sense a real friendly team atmosphere–I just thought–this is where I want to come. Gavin was completely reassuring and so I decided to go ahead.

I first needed a bone graft, then on the day of the implant placement with Richard I felt a small amount of discomfort, I can only describe it as pressure but no real pain. Post-surgery discomfort was controlled with paracetamol and my implants healed well.

The new implants have given me more confidence–my close friends have noticed this too and have also complimented me on my new smile. In future I wouldn’t think twice about having more implants if I needed them.
