Maintaining good oral hygiene
Updated: Apr 9, 2021
Regular appointments to your dentist in Hastings is important in maintaining good oral hygiene, which is essential for your overall wellbeing. We at Warrior Square Dental Practice are available for all your dental issues. We provide emergency dental care at your dentist in Hastings, which may be necessary for many different concerns such as sudden toothache, lost or broken crowns and fillings, or a broken/chipped tooth due to accident or trauma. It is important to seek immediate advice at your dentist in Hastings in these circumstances, to avoid further damage or infection detrimental to surrounding dental structures or even possible tooth loss which may occur if the issue is left untreated.
General dental treatments
We at Warrior Square Dental Practice recommend that you visit your dentist regularly to help maintain optimal oral health and also to prevent any dental issues, as your own daily oral hygiene routine may not always be sufficient and if left unchecked may result in many different types of dental problem. Common dental issues include bad breath and sensitivity, cracked or broken teeth, tooth decay, gingivitis (inflammation and infection of the gums), periodontitis (severe infection of the gums) and even tooth loss. At Warrior Square Dental Practice we provide fillings, crowns and bridges. We also carry out root canal therapy if the dental pulp inside your tooth is damaged or infected. All procedures are carried out carefully and professionally, with your comfort, ease and wellbeing as our main priorities.
Your smile is one of the first things that most people notice when they meet you. A pleasant smile is important for self-confidence and esteem. Over time, staining and discolouration of your teeth can affect the way you feel about your smile. Staining may occur due to many different reasons including smoking, choice of food, and drinks such as tea, coffee, cola and wine. Poor dental hygiene, dental issues and other diseases can also lead to discolouration of your teeth. Finally ageing and genetics are a natural cause of staining too. Tooth whitening at your dentist is an effective way of lightning the natural colour of your teeth and enhancing your smile.
Teeth whitening using Enlighten
Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic treatment in dentistry. At Warrior Square Dental Practice we have found Enlighten to be a popular and successful method of teeth whitening. It is a reliable and simple procedure and when carried out under the professional supervision of your dentist, may be one of the most effective whitening systems currently available. It is a safe and easy procedure which works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen. The oxygen can then break down the stain molecules on the surface of the tooth which are responsible for the discolouration.
It involves an initial consultation with your dentist to check your suitability, discuss your perfect smile and take impressions of your teeth. It is a 2-week treatment which is continued at home with the Enlighten gel and your individually tailored trays which you have to use every night for the fortnight. This is then followed by a final visit to your dentist at the end of the treatment period for a further whitening session and to discuss your results. Smile confidently and be happy!
