Signs Of Gum Disease

Gum Disease is very avoidable. It’s usually the case of bad hygiene and oral health. Gum disease is where the gums become swollen, red, sore and bleed. It can be prevented by brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing and getting regular checkups and dental hygiene appointments.

Typical Causes of Gum Disease

Gum Disease, also known as Periodontitis is a serious gum infection which damages the soft tissue around the teeth. It tends to start with plaque. Plaque is a sticky substance made up of bacteria from the mouth. Here’s how Plaque can develop into Periodontitis:

  • Plaque, which forms on your teeth when sugars and starches in food cause a reaction with the bacteria, likely to be come in your mouth. Make sure you are brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day to prevent this from happening.
  • Tartar, which is plaque that hardens under the gumline and turns into tartar. It is very difficult to remove, you need professional dental cleaning to remove it. Plaque and tarter can do a lot of damage the longer it stays on your teeth as they’re filled with bacteria.
  • Gingivitis, which is the mildest form of gum disease. Gingivitis is swelling and irritation of the gum tissue around the base of your teeth. It can be solved professionally with a dentist and good home oral care as early as possible as it can lead to bone loss.
  • Periodontitis, which is caused by swelling of the gum, gum irritation and inflammation. Over time this causes deep pockets to form between your gums and teeth, these are filled with plaque, bacteria and tartar. if not treated, it can cause the loss of tissue and bone.

The Product

Here at Newby Dental Practice, we use Boutique whitening. Boutique is a premium tooth whitening product. Not only is this the product we recommend for our patients, it is what we use ourselves.
Get that whiter smile you have always wanted with Boutique in just a few weeks! Now everybody has different situations and everybody’s oral health is completely different. We do need to have an appointment with you beforehand to check you are dentally fit for the teeth whitening. This is a free consultation with our treatment coordinator, where you will discuss the time frame and cost of your whitening experience.

How Does it work?

Boutique whitening works with the use of special trays (think gum shields, or retainers. They look similar to this) which are made specifically for you. We will take an impression of your teeth and send it off to the lab, where your trays are then made. These will then be sent back to us, where we then will contact you and have you come in to try them on to check they are comfortable and fit well. There are two ways of using the whitening. Either during the day or over night. Depending on your lifestyle, we have the option to suit you best! You will then be sent with your Day/Night kit and your whitening journey begins.

Dental treatments such as crowns or fillings are not affected by the whitening, therefore will not change colour. As the colour of your teeth lighten during your whitening experience, any dark areas within your teeth may show and become more obvious, therefore you may want to discuss this with us, to see how we can improve and correct these. Your fresh new pearly whites are just as important to us as they are to you! So what are you waiting for? Contact us now on 01723 670500 to book your consultation.

Scarborough & District Minor League Football Sponsors

Newby Dental Practice is proud to announce that we are now supporting Scarborough & District Minor League football. Our sponsorship will help support the league so that they can improve the way that football works for families. They do this using two initiatives:

Firstly, using the Fixture List Planner. This has been rolled out to over 150 youth leagues, generating thousands of pounds for youth football across England and Wales. This has helped to raise the profile of each league in their community.

Secondly, the Pitch Finder Handbook is used by tens of thousands of families each week to find out how to get to their next game.

These initiatives, are not only aimed at tackling problems within youth football leagues, but to help raise the profile of youth football in the community. Football is a large part of community in England and Wales, but the cost of running the clubs is constantly rising, making it more difficult to fund. This is why we are the proud sponsors of Scarborough & District Minor Leagues football. We believe that community is very important in keeping people happy and healthy so we wanted to do our part to help the club keep up their fantastic work!

Need A Break From The Hot Weather?

As we enter the heatwave, a trip to the dentist may be the last thing on your mind. However, all of our surgeries are supplied with air conditioning, designed to keep you cool, so now may be the perfect time to book an appointment! Why sit in a sweltering hot room when you could be sat back and relaxed in a refreshing dental surgery?

As the hot weather approaches you may be inclined to indulge on more ice creams or ice lollies. It is important that you try to reduce the frequency that you eat these high sugar treats, as well as maintaining an oral hygiene routine. Book an appointment to see your dentist to make sure your teeth are in the best condition to start the summer. Call us on 01723 670500.

Want to know how to manage a knocked out tooth?

As the weather warms up and we head into summer, you are probably anxious to spend time outdoors. Maybe you and your family enjoy bike riding or playing sports. Always remember that safety comes first. You probably know that it is a good idea to wear a helmet while riding a bike or playing sports. However, you may not have given thought to the importance of wearing a sports guard when participating in vigorous outdoor activities. A sports guard can go a long way in preventing dental trauma. Once such dental injury you can avoid is an avulsed tooth. An avulsed tooth is the term dentists use to describe a tooth that has been knocked out. If you are faced with a tooth avulsion, chances are good that the tooth can be saved and re-implanted if the proper steps are taken immediately.

Follow these tips to increase your chances of saving the avulsed tooth:

  • Carefully handle the tooth and avoid touching the root as it can be easily damaged.
  • If the tooth needs to be cleaned, hold it by the crown and rinse it with milk. If you don’t have milk, gently rinse it with water. Allow it to air dry.
  • The tooth must be kept moist. You can place it in a cup of milk. If milk is unavailable you can store it in your mouth, between your gum and cheek. A child may not be able to safely keep the tooth in his mouth. In this case, you can have the child spit in a cup and put the tooth in the saliva. If this is not possible, you can simply keep the tooth in water. The idea is to keep the tooth from drying out.
  • You can try to slip the tooth back into its socket. If this is an adult tooth. There’s a good chance it will slip right back in. You shouldn’t force it. Make sure it is facing the correct way. If the tooth won’t easily go back in place, then simply store it to keep it moist until you see us.
  • It is important to contact us immediately to increase the chances of re-implanting the tooth successfully.
