World Dental Congress — 3 teeth care takeaways from Copenhagen

Copenhagen Mermaid StatueOutstanding orthodontists and world-class smile surgeons winged their way to wonderful Copenhagen for the the 2018 European Congress on Dentistry and Oral Health on June 4th-6th this year.

As you can imagine, keynote speeches and exhibitions covered everything from adolescent incisors to tooth decay prevention for the elderly.

But we’ve gathered together three of the most interesting teeth care takeaways in one snack-sized blog.

1. Oral health and mums-to-be

Specialist Mohammad Shahbazi from Jackson State University shared his insights on oral care for pregnant women from a public health perspective.

His previous research into the prevalence of oral Mucosa Disorder amongst pregnant women in Iran underlined how important it is for expectant mothers to seek dental advice as early as possible.

We’re always happy to discuss the dos and don’ts of dental care during pregnancy with our patients, but for NHS information on teeth, gums and diet in this important life stage, take a look at this article.

2. Cosmetic dentistry

Next up on our highlight list is consultant orthodontist Hani Dalati from Health Point Hospital in UAE — he gave a fascinating talk on the changing role of orthodontists in the face of technological advances in cosmetic dentistry and rising client demand.

He emphasised that for some patients, simple orthodontic treatments can achieve the desired results, with more permanent solutions playing their part should problems progress further.

This was music to our ears because we always recommend the most appropriate bespoke tooth care solutions for every patient.

3. 3D Printing

Last but not least on our list of top-flight teeth care researchers is Russell Wang, Associate Professor at Case Western University, with his fascinating insights into 3D-printed dental jawbone implants.

In jaw reconstruction, 3D printing enables an unrivalled level of personalisation and rapid prototyping. The technology is still in its developmental stages, but the fact that viable 3D jawbones have already been printed with biocompatible polymeric materials is encouraging.

We’re already enthusiastic about the excellent results patients achieve from dental implants — so Russell whetted our appetites on what the future might hold.

Dental care advances at an impressive pace — but in order to provide you with the best care, we always keep abreast of the latest developments.

So here’s what we’ve learned:
  • Mums-to-be should seek dental advice as early as possible.
  • Simple orthodontic solutions can still be extremely effective.
  • 3D printing can take implant innovations to an impressive new level.

3 ideal reasons to have your teeth whitened

For many people, a smile lies at the centre of your welcome to strangers, beating handshakes or a continental peck on the cheek.

A smile is the universal sign of cheerfulness and openness – and it doesn’t look nearly as impressive when your pearly whites don’t look as healthy as possible.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth spoiling your smile?

Dental Implants could be the solution

On average, British people have 6.97 missing teeth — and older people tend to have poorer dental health than younger generations.

At Knighton Dental, we know that having missing or broken teeth can adversely affect a patient’s confidence — as well as making eating certain foods seem like a chore.

But some people think dentures are their only option — so they choose to go without any treatment at all.

However, dental implants are a comfortable and long-lasting solution that boosts self-image and restores sparkling smiles.

How do implants work?

Implants can dramatically improve your smile and require an expert practitionerDental Implant Example like our own Dr Savan Zala to fit them properly.

But in some ways, the science behind them is simple: they fit onto your jawbone as a replacement for a tooth’s root and support crowns or false teeth.

And, provided you follow the right after-care regime, they can last a lifetime.

Some patients prefer implants to dentures as they feel more permanent and convenient.

Plus, their impact on facial appearance can be truly transformative — consider the difference singer Shane MacGowan’s implants made to his famous smile.

What we offer

  • If you’re considering implants, you’ll receive a full free consultation, a discount for multiple implants — and the peace of mind associated with having the same dentist throughout the entire process.
  • We’ll talk you through our treatment techniques in straightforward terms and offer affordable finance options that make implants more accessible by spreading the cost.

Implant options

Any dental treatment should be perfectly personalised for each patient to achieve optimal results.

That’s why we offer three distinct types of implant options:

 

  • All-on-4 implants can be completed in just one day through reducing the number of implants required to restore an entire arch of teeth. This option is cheaper than full arch bridge techniques and can restore total functionality.
  • Individual implants and bridges fill gaps caused by one or more missing teeth by fixing a false tooth to a titanium post that’s surgically inserted in the jaw. Technicians skilfully match the shape and colour of old and new teeth for a seamless finish.
  • Straumann implants are high-quality products that are easy to insert and superbly secure. They’re one of the world’s most popular dental reconstruction solutions, making millions of people smile more confidently.
Next steps

Contact us to chat about which of our three terrific dental implant options suits you best — we’ll recommend the best way to proceed.

Our dental surgeons have performed hundreds of implant placements over their careers and utilise the latest techniques.

But crucially, they take time to make patients feel comfortable, informed and completely confident.

If you don’t like the thought of dentures and want a safe, secure and long-term way to revamp your smile, dental implants are made to measure.
