The Advantages of Dental Implants

Anyone who has had a dental implant, or a few implants, will tell you how life-changing it can be. Dental implants are used for people who have broken teeth, perhaps from an accident, or missing teeth, either accidental or from tooth decay. Dental implants look real, feel real and make all the difference to a person’s smile and self confidence. They are permanent, which means there is no need for the awkwardness of a denture. And the process these days, is fairly seamless and pain free.

Get the smile you deserve

 So many people are self conscious about their smiles. In this day and age, with dental technology being so amazing, there is no need to have bad teeth.  Replacing a missing tooth, or fixing a broken tooth, is simple. If you need a dental implant, your dentist will tell you exactly what is involved. Most often, dental implants require just two appointments – the initial assessment, which is also when the mould can be taken, and then the appointment for the fitting.

If you have dental pain, check it out

 Your tooth, or teeth, may be quietly decaying. You don’t want to wait for your tooth to fall out, simply because you are causing extra damage to the bone and gum. It could be that a dentist can repair your tooth – perhaps root canal treatment – or it could be that your tooth needs to come out and be replaced. Your dentist will tell you the best option, and if it is an implant, know that you are going for a good option!

Dental implants look real

 A well made dental implant looks just like your other teeth.  You do not need to worry about breaking out into a smile and having people think ‘Oh, it’s an implant.’  A good implant is well made, well measured, and designed to look like, and feel like, your own teeth.  The colour and size can be perfectly matched.  Remember, if you don’t like the colour of your teeth, this too can be changed. A good dental practice will offer a variety of dental cosmetic surgeries, including a range of teeth whitening options.

Dental implants are long lasting

 Once you have your dental implant, or implants if you need more than one, they are going to last you for many years, hopefully more than a decade. You do need to care for your implants, the same way you care for your teeth. Brush in the morning and brush at night.  Use dental floss. And always go and visit the dentist every six months, to have your teeth cleaned and checked.

How to choose the right dentist

 Ask your dentist about the technology they use. If you have to wait weeks for a dental implant, it is not going to suit you. Rather work with a dental practice that uses the latest technology and is able to fill those gaps in your mouth quickly, painlessly and superbly. You deserve to have a great smile.

5 reasons to have good oral hygiene for your Valentine

It’s very nearly Valentine’s Day, the day when we all want to impress our loved one. Hopefully you have spent time choosing the right gift, writing out a lovely card and perhaps organising the perfect dinner for two.

We also hope you’ve spent time on your oral hygiene. Valentine’s Day is a day when you get close to your partner, which means, you need to have good oral health and good breath. You certainly don’t want your partner taking a step backwards when you step in to hug or kiss them.  Here are our five reasons why you should care of your oral hygiene, and not only for Valentine’s Day.

It shows your partner that hygiene is important to you

 

Hygiene should be important to you and that includes your own hygiene and that of people around you. It shows that you have a good sense of self, that you want to look good, and that you are making an effort to look good for others. If there is a special person in your life, make an effort for her or him, and that includes your oral hygiene. They will appreciate your sparkling clean mouth!

It makes intimacy easier

 

Nobody wants to kiss someone with bad breath. And honestly, intimacy is just that much nicer when you have a fresh mouth and one that is well cared for. Dentistry today makes it so much easier to have white teeth, straight teeth and fresh delicious breath. A six monthly check up does wonders for your oral care, and there are so many methods for teeth whitening today, methods that do not break the bank.

That white smile may be the cause of love at first sight

 

Flash a beautiful smile at someone and they must just fall in love with you immediately. Of course nobody should be judged on what they look like, but it makes it a lot easier to fall for someone who has good oral hygiene combined with their fabulous personality!

Oral health gives you confidence

 

If you can smile confidently, you feel confident. If you are hiding behind your hand because your teeth are a little grey, or even missing, you don’t feel good about yourself and this shows. Your self esteem will get the most fabulous boost if you take care of your teeth. Remember, it is never too late. You might not get that fab white smile before Valentine’s Day but you can certainly get it before the next date!

Oral health results in overall good health

 

If you leave your dental health too long, your problems can become severe which means your overall health is going to suffer. The earlier you deal with your oral hygiene, and keep dealing with it, the better your health is going to be in general. Again, see your dentist on a regular basis and if you don’t have a dentist, call the American Medical and Dental Centre in Dubai. They have an excellent team of dentists, oral hygienists, dental cosmetic surgeons and dental surgeons, for all dental care.

Everything You Need To Know About Veneers

With dental technology being so advanced, a perfect white smile is available to all. Gone are the days of yellow or grey teeth, and gone are the days of crooked, missing or jagged teeth.

So What Exactly Are Veneers?

Veneers are made out of porcelain. They are wafer thin porcelain shells, shaped just like teeth that get bonded to your natural teeth. They are super strong and once you have veneers, you have them for life. They look natural although you can have them as white as you would like, and they genuinely work and give you a fabulous smile. The American Medical and Dental Centre (AMDC)in Dubai has a specialist department for teeth whitening, and has certainly perfected the art of the perfect Veneer! They have also managed to do this at reasonable prices.

Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?

In previous times it was only the very wealthy who could afford veneers. That is why you would see famous actors and actresses, especially American, with straight, white, perfect teeth. Advances in technology mean that veneers are now accessible for almost all people. They are porcelain, an expensive material, but are more widely produced and therefore not too costly. Good candidates for veneers would include:-

  • People with discoloured teeth.
  • Teeth those are crooked, chipped or cracked.
  • People with gaps in their mouths.
  • Anyone with bad teeth who wants to improve on their self-esteem

    Your dentist at the dental clinic in Dubai will tell you if you are a candidate for veneers. Not everyone is and this is why you need to have an assessment first. A dentist, or dental cosmetic surgeon, will consult with you and give you options. Your options may include Veneers.

Does It Hurt To Have Veneers?

A visit to the dentist is never going to be the most pleasurable thing, but again, with advanced technology and especially at the AMDC, there is really limited pain. Your dentist will make you as comfortable as possible and will ensure that he or she works on your mouth in the most pain-free way. There may be a little discomfort; you do have to lie in the chair with your mouth wide open after all. But the pain is not at all extreme, and in most instances, veneers in Dubai are done in a high-tech, luxurious and pain-free way. Many dentists, and especially at the AMDC, use a local anaesthetic. This will always be discussed with the patient, in advance.

How Long Will My Veneers Last?

Veneers can last a lifetime, it depends on you! Most dentists will tell you that your veneers can last between 10 and 20 years. A lot of this depends on your lifestyle. If you smoke and drink, and do not brush your teeth well, you may just get 5 to 10 years. But you will definitely get those years with magnificent teeth. You do need to brush twice daily, you do need to continue flossing, and you should have your regular six monthly dental check ups. Many dentists will also suggest that you wear a night guard to prevent wear and tear.

Can I Choose How White I Want My Veneers?

The shape of your dental veneers will be tailor made to suit your mouth and your teeth. The same goes with the colour. Your dentist will choose the best shade of white that will suit your skin colour, eye colour and hair colour, while looking glamorous and natural. You may want to go an extreme white, and it is likely that your dentist will gently suggest you do not go too extreme. Very white teeth look unnatural. White teeth look great! The dentists at the AMDC will assess you and then make suggestions as to which shape and colour veneers will be best for you.

Do I Get A Mouthful Of Veneers Or Just A Few?

Most dentists will suggest veneers for your front top teeth, or your most social teeth, i.e. the ones that are seen. You can have as many teeth veneered as you want, but your dentist will explain which ones you should get done, and why. Aesthetically speaking, you want your smile to be perfect. Look in the mirror, see which teeth you can predominantly see when you smile. It is likely that these are the teeth that your dentist will suggest you have veneered.

5 Ways to Keep Your Teeth White at Your Home

Our lifestyle means that we don’t all have the whitest of teeth, although a dentist in Dubai can fix that for you. Most adults drink a lot of coffee or tea, causing grey or yellowing teeth. Very often we don’t care for our teeth when we are younger which leads to discoloured teeth when we are older Genetics plays a large part and some of us are disposed to having discoloured teeth. And our diets are often responsible for our tooth discolouration too.
Teeth whitening is a big thing, although it can be time consuming or costly. The cheapest dental implants in Dubai are done at the AMDC, although there are several other cost effective methods too.

Dentists in Dubai

Having your teeth whitened is pretty ‘ordinary’ these days. In the same way that people have their hair cut, their teeth straightened, go to yoga or the gym, and look after their skin, people are looking after their teeth. There are many teeth whitening products that can be used at home, safely and effectively, although most people choose to go to the dentist for teeth whitening. Technology is so advanced today that it is easy and to go to the dentist, as well as being inexpensive, but some people still prefer to do their own teeth at home.

Here are our top ways for you to keep your teeth white at home:-

1. Buy a Home Teeth Whitening Kit:

There are many home teeth whitening kits on the market. Read the instructions carefully, and follow them exactly. Home kits do work, although they can be a little messy. The beauty of having your teeth whitened by a professional is that they deal with everything from A-B, while you lay back comfortably in the chair. But you can do it at home, just read, follow the instructions and you too could have that beautiful smile.

2. Pull with Coconut Oil:

This is an interesting way to whiten your teeth, and it is a way that many naturopaths and homeopaths recommend. Oil pulling has been practiced in India for centuries, as a way of cleaning the teeth, improving overall oral hygiene and, as a way to cleanse the body and remove toxins. You should use good, pure, organic coconut oil. Generally, you use a teaspoon of the oil, swish it around in your mouth for a good twenty minutes, and then spit it out. If you are going to do this, read up on it beforehand so you know exactly what you are doing.

3. Bicarbonate of Soda:

Good old bicarb! So many people swear by this, although we are unsure about how long it takes to see your teeth getting whiter, and how long it lasts. Most of the toothpaste has a bit of baking soda or bicarbonate of soda in them. Brush with a little bicarb, twice daily, and see the difference. Spit it out after brushing as bicarb does not taste that good.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar:

There are many natural benefits to apple cider vinegar, and teeth whitening is one of them. It’s best used as a mouthwash, diluted in water. You need to gargle with the solution, and then swish it around your mouth. You may brush your teeth with the solution too. Like bicarb, the whitening effects may take a bit of time, and may not last for long, but overall, apple cider vinegar is good for cleansing and general oral health.

5. Eat the Right Fruits and Vegetables:

Eat those apples and crispy fruit and vegetables whenever you can. This is a good one for your children too, as they are probably too young to do the coconut oil pulling, or to be using bicarb of soda or apple cider vinegar. Again, we are not a hundred percent sure if this will make adult teeth whiter, but it will certainly make you overall healthier!

fruits and vegetables

In the past, home remedies have include hydrogen peroxide but if you chat to a dentist in Dubai, they will tell you NOT to do this at home. The dangers outweigh the benefits and you need to know exactly what you are doing and not to use the wrong concentration.

The truth is, the most beneficial teeth whitening methods are done by a dentist who specialized in teeth whitening. There are many methods, and you can chat to your dentist in Dubai about the best method for you. The American Medical and Dental Centre offer laser teeth whitening, Zoom teeth whitening, porcelain veneers and dental implants, amongst other methods.

learn how to save your natural tooth by Fixing-Root-Canal

learn how to save your natural tooth by Fixing-Root-Canal:

Quick, comfortable procedure that can relieve your pain and save your natural tooth,so There’s no need to be worried if you are in need of it as Millions of teeth are treated and saved this way each year.

What is root canal ?

Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development.

Preparation:

Before having root canal treatment, you should do some steps :

– A series of X-rays have to be taken of the affected tooth.

This allows dentists to define any damage in your teeth and have clear picture of the root canal.

Dentists usually use local anesthetic, and painkilling medicines.

In some cases it isn’t necessary to use a local anesthetic, as the tooth is no longer sensitive.

In this case, dentists  use special  techniques to ensure that the treatment isn’t painful.

-Removing the pulp, We have to be sure that the tooth is dry during the treatment so the dentist will place a rubber sheet (dam) around the tooth. Then an opening is made and the diseased tooth pulp is removed.

If you have a dental abscess, which is a pus-filled swelling, your dentist will be able to drain it at the same time.

-Cleaning the root canal, to make the root canal easy to be filed it has to be clean and wider ,so After the pulp has been removed, your dentist will clean and enlarge the root canal .

The root canal is usually very narrow, which makes it difficult to fill. So Your dentist will use a series of small files to enlarge the canals and make them a regular shape so they can be filled.

To complete this step you need more much time and may need several visits to your dentists

Your front incisor and canine teeth (biting teeth) usually have a single root containing one root canal.

The premolars and back molar teeth (chewing teeth) have two or three roots, each containing either one or two root canals. The more roots a tooth has, the longer the treatment will take to complete.

If the treatment needs several sessions, the dentist have to keep the canal clean by putting a small amount of medication in the cleaned canal in between visits to kill any remaining bacteria. The tooth will then be sealed using a temporary filling.

If you have symptoms from the infection, such as a raised temperature or large swelling, you may be given antibiotics to help manage and prevent further infection.

-Filling the root canal:  the roots that have been opened (to get rid of the disease pulp) are filled with gutta-percha material and sealed off with cement.

What are the advantages of Saving the natural tooth with root canal treatment:

  • Efficient chewing
  • Normal biting force and sensation
  • Natural appearance
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain

Dental Sealants To Protect Grooved And pitted Areas

Plaque gathers in these areas, and bacteria in the plaque attacks the enamel and cavities can develop.

There are three steps to have A dental sealant:

1. First the dentist cleans the teeth with a paste and rotating brush .

2.Then washes them with water and dries well.
