Den's Dental Blog

Hello! My name is Den. This blog is going to cover a range of dental topics. I am not a dentist or a dental nurse but I have recently undergone a lot of dental treatment. This treatment has given me a great insight into the world of dentistry and I would like to share everything I have learnt with you here. Last year, I developed terrible pain in my mouth. I was diagnosed with severe tooth decay. The dentist removed the problem teeth and then inserted false ones in their place. He also whitened my teeth to improve my smile. I hope you find my blog useful.

Why You Should Never Ignore a Dental Abscess

Have you had a nagging pain in your mouth for some time which refuses to go away? You may suspect that this is something to do with poor dental hygiene over the last months, but you have been putting off a visit to the dentist for one reason or another.

There are many different methods of teeth whitening—some involving professional supervision and some that can be done at home. One common method is to use teeth whitening strips, which are easily available from supermarkets or pharmacies. But are they the right solution for you? They may be for you if: You're on a budget. Whitening strips are one of the cheapest methods of improving your smile. It will certainly be cheaper to pick up a packet at the store than to visit the dentist.

Baby Come Back! The Premature Loss of a Baby Tooth

To lose a permanent, adult tooth is undoubtedly a massive inconvenience. This inconvenience can certainly be overcome, whether it's via a traditional dental implant, a dental bridge, or even removable dentures. But what about when your child loses a baby tooth?

5 Specialized Types of Dentists and How They Can Help You with Your Teeth

Like comparing a GP to an ENT, endocrinologist or anaesthesiologist, there are also specialised types of dentists. To change from being a general dentist to a dental specialist, one is often required to complete years more of training and study, on top of the years first spent studying to become a dentist. And like with the many specialisations of doctors, because dentistry can also be needed in emergency situations, it may pay to learn a few of the names of these specialisations, what exactly they do, and what problems they can treat.

How to Deal With Bad Breath

We all wish to have a bewitching smile with a dazzling dental formula. However, not everyone is lucky to enjoy such a smile and fresh breath. Some do not even know they have bad breath until a courageous friend has the guts to tell them their situation. Bad breath not only affects your confidence levels but also your relationship with other people. Your partner may not have the morale to give you that romantic kiss.

Dealing With A Toothache

When it comes to dental emergencies, a quick response is always the key to preventing the loss of your tooth and reducing pain.  A toothache is one of the dental emergencies you may have to deal with. It can be mild or severe depending on the underlying issue. It can be a result of a range of dental issues such as a cavity in your tooth, a cracked or chipped tooth or filling, or sensitivity resulting from the thinning of the enamel or receding gums.

Lost a Filling? Here's What You Need to Do

Of course, seeing your local emergency dentist is the most important thing to do. However, there are a few things you need to do until you arrive there. Put the following recommendations into practise to give yourself the best chance at full tooth repair once you arrive at the emergency dentist.

Are Cosmetic Dental Procedures Right For You?

Cosmetic dentistry is done to improve the overall appearance of your teeth, making them appear larger, whiter, straighter, or whatever else is needed to give you a beautiful smile. Today's cosmetic procedures are more affordable and faster to perform than ever before, so you're sure to find one that fits your needs in particular and which also fits your budget! If you're thinking of doing something to improve the appearance of your teeth, note a few questions you might have and topics to discuss with your dentist, so you know if such a procedure is right for you.

Which veneers are best to revamp that smile?

If you've been longing for a fresh new smile, it may be time to consider dental veneers. Of all cosmetic dentistry practices, veneers offer the most popular and affordable way to improve your smile, replace damaged parts of your teeth, straighten your bite or make your smile appear more uniform, or just plain sunnier. But with several types of veneers available, figuring out which form of veneers is best is a matter of weighing up what will work for you.

Plumping for Porcelain Veneers: 4 Logical Reasons to Plump Your Lips With Porcelain Veneers

Thanks to popular celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Meghan Markle, full, alluring lips are in hot demand. This need is reflected in the wealth of lip plumping options currently available all over the world. The options range from lip plumping gels, lip fillers, lip implants, surgical enhancement and even lip tattoos. However, because these lip plumping techniques directly alter your lips in some way, the results aren't always pleasing—or healthy for that matter.

How to Deal with the Aftermath of a Broken Tooth

There are a number of reasons why a tooth can break off, either partially or in its entirety. A hard-enough smack to the mouth can do it, and if you were involved in an accident that involved blunt force trauma, a broken tooth might be something you have to deal with. It might not always be so violent either. There might have been a cavity you meant to see your dentist about.
