Good oral hygiene is key to healthy teeth. Oral hygiene mainly focuses on your gum health, which is essential as your teeth require the foundation of healthy gums to stand the test of time. Did you know patients with advanced gum disease (periodontal disease) are three times more likely to develop diabetes, 25% more susceptible to the risk of cardiovascular disease and 20% more likely to develop hypertension? Scary right? With this in mind, it isn’t just your oral health that will suffer from a bad oral hygiene routine. 
Have you been in two minds about whether or not to go ahead with orthodontic treatment? Maybe you’re worried about the interruption it could make to your day-to-day life? Perhaps it’s the cosmetic element that’s making you question your desire to proceed? Below, we’ll highlight five reasons you should keep in mind if you’re unsure about straightening your teeth. 
Christmas is almost here! We’re very excited at the prospect of Christmas this year here at Park Dental Care and hope that it’s a little different from last year for all our patients. The festive period is a time for relaxing and being around friends, but one thing that you shouldn’t neglect at Christmas is caring for your teeth. 
Here are a few tips to ensure your teeth get the TLC they deserve this Christmas period. 
For many years, braces were primarily associated with younger patients, specifically teenagers. But, with the evolution of brace designs and a significant improvement in treatment planning, orthodontic treatment is no longer all about young people. In wearing appliances like ceramic braces and Invisalign clear aligners, patients can get on with their everyday life whilst receiving treatment to get the smile of their dreams. 
Everyone should endeavour to visit the dentist twice a year for a routine check-up, though there are some dental problems that warrant you coming in straight away. Make yourself aware of issues that necessitate a dental check-up as soon as possible below, to stop serious problems from worsening. 
Here at Park Dental Care, we’ve been using the Invisalign system to transform smiles for almost 20 years. This game-changing alternative to metal braces is an excellent choice for patients who are looking for a minimally invasive appliance, and who would like to correct issues such as widely spaced teeth, crowded teeth, bite problems and misaligned teeth. 
Losing a tooth can be distressing, whether it’s due to gum disease, decay, or trauma. But thanks to dental implants, it’s possible to restore the health of your mouth, chewing and speaking ability and aesthetic of your smile. Dental implants are the premium option for replacing a missing tooth, as they look and behave like a real tooth, thanks to the fact that they’re surgically placed into the jawbone. 
Having bright, white teeth is something we all aspire to. And thanks to professional teeth whitening treatment, it’s an achievable dream. Today, we’re looking at the amazing life-changing benefits this popular cosmetic dental treatment can offer. 
New evidence has suggested that dental plaque accumulation and periodontal inflammation intensify the chance of Covid-19 reaching the lungs and causing severe cases. The revelation comes after an international team of researchers from the UK, South Africa, and the USA published their findings in the Journal of Oral Medicine and Dental Research. With this in mind, it’s never been more important to keep on top of your gum health. 
The food and drink we eat has the power to make or break our dental health. Whilst there is still a lot of educating to be done surrounding the food and drink that causes dental erosion, it’s great to see sportspeople such as Christiano Ronaldo rejecting Coca-Cola, the sponsor of Euro 2020. As well as such efforts from sportspeople, awareness around how sugar affects teeth is essential, and we can offer this to patients during a routine hygienist or dentist appointment – knowledge is power!
