TOOTH MOUSSE

                                 TOOTH MOUSSE

Tooth mousse is a water based crème containing recaldent. It is applied topically to teeth and gums to provide extra protection for teeth to help neutralize acid challenges from bacteria in plaque and other acid sources.

Tooth mousse is suited if:

  • You  suffer from a dry mouth . Prescribed  medication can also leave you with a dry mouth.
  • If you are having orthodontic treatment including after having brackets removed. 
  • If you have reflux or morning sickness from pregnancy.The acid from your stomach can dissolve on your teeth , so rubbing tooth mousse on your teeth after reflux will help to protect your teeth from erosion.

Tooth mousse should always be used  under the supervision of your dentist who will give you individual instructions and advice. Tooth mousse is available from your dental clinic with a variety of flavours to choose from.

DENTAL BRIDGES

                                         DENTAL BRIDGES

A dental bridge replaces missing teeth with false teeth. The bridge is attached to the real teeth on either side of the gap left by missing teeth. Bridges are usually made of porcelain or metal, or a mixture of the two. They are fixed in place and for some people, are an alternative to dentures.

You may need a dental bridge if you have a missing tooth or teeth and have healthy teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing teeth.

To prepare for a dental bridge, your dentist will usually file down the 2 healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Your dentist will then take a mould to make your bridge. Once the bridge is ready it is cemented to the surrounding healthy teeth.  Dental bridges can restore your smile and avoid you feeling self conscious about having missing teeth.

Make sure you see your dentist for regular check ups, daily flossing and brushing and avoid eating hard and chewy foods with your new bridge.
