If you have a chipped tooth, or maybe other damage or white fillings …
… there are a number of ways of solving this problem.
The chipped area could be repaired with bonding material.
The tooth could be prepared and a Crown made.
Or a veneer could be made …
… which is fixed to the front of the tooth and looks very natural.
When a tooth is missing …
… there are usually a number of solutions available.
You could have a false tooth made and fitted to a plate.
Alternatively a Bridge can be fitted to an adjacent tooth.
Or you could have an Implant which doesn’t affect the adjacent teeth.
A healthy tooth.
Plaque builds up …
… gum and bone may begin to recede.
Sometimes the gum recedes with the bone and sometimes it doesn’t.
Use small circular movements with the brush held at 45 degrees to the tooth.
Move systematically around the mouth.
Remember to clean the inside surfaces …… and the biting surfaces.
Don’t forget behind the top and bottom teeth.
A good technique will take 2 minutes.
The TePe interdental brush is used to clean in between teeth.
Turning the brush on insertion will help access.
Used daily, it removes plaque and food debris where your usual brush cannot reach.
For spaces at the back of the mouth, bend the brush in a slight curve but never at right angles …… this will help you access the more difficult-to-reach areas. A choice of 8 colour-coded sizes is available to help clean different sized spaces.
Periodontal disease causes pocketing around the necks of the teeth.
Left undisturbed plaque bacteria thrive in these pockets causing the pockets to deepen.
A standard toothbrush is not able to access these pockets.
The TePe Interspace brush can access these pockets and disrupt bacteria. Regular use will discourage disease-causing bacteria from accumulating.
