Appledore clinic is one of the first dental clinics in the UK to make Carifree easily available to their patients. This revolutionary new treatment can be used to prevent dental decay and most amazingly to STOP active dental decay.

For years we have been treating dental decay by cutting out the decayed bits of your teeth and placing fillings, and many people have found that every time they visit their dentist they need yet more fillings.

Scientific research has shown that those people who continually need new fillings have a lot of acid producing and acid loving bacteria in their mouths that cause the damage. The bacterial infection causing decay is called 'Caries'.

Minimal Preparation Techniques for Porcelain Laminate Veneers

By: Jay Padayachy and David Bloom - Senova Dental Studio

In this article we will take the visual diagnostic try-in to complete a minimal preparation veneer case. This will be exemplified by the case study along with a step-by-step series of photographs.

At the time of presentation the patient, who we use to demonstrate this technique, was a 25 year old male who ran his own highly successful company and dealt with customers on a day-to-day basis. He wanted to close the gaps between his teeth, he also felt that the central incisors were not dominant enough and were a little too rounded. He felt this made him look immature which was inconstant with his status. He wanted a perfect, lighter smile.

Are your lines and wrinkles getting you down..? Don’t worry help is at hand...

By: Yvonne Poole -Appledore Clinic

Most people are aware of the dental treatments that are available nowadays and that, basically, if you want a dental problem fixed there are now various solutions that you can have, other than dentures. Also people seem to be aware that whitening is a treatment that is relatively quick and painless that can take quite a few years off your face.

Not so many people are aware of the risk free treatments that come under the heading of Facial Aesthetics, these being muscle relaxants, fillers, microdermabrasion and IPL (intense pulsed light). These are a few of the solutions to the age old problem of ageing that don't involve costly and invasive surgery or months of recovery time.

Dentistry in Focus with Dr Andrew Prynne of Definitive Dentistry

By: Andrew Prynne, Definitive Dentistry

Dentists in Bournemouth

– “Tooth Restoration as Nature Intended with CEREC 3D”

Dr. Andrew Prynne of Definitive Dentistry in Bournemouth is one of the very few dentists in the area to provide this cutting edge technology.
The Cerec 3D system is able to restore almost any part of a filled or damaged tooth to its natural form and function in a single appointment.
Historically, cavities in teeth have been restored in the mouth by packing the defect with a soft filling material, which the dentist has to shape by hand before it sets. Heavily damaged teeth have been restored by a laboratory technician over a two-week period on a model of the remaining tooth structure provided by the dentist – in the meantime, patients have had to wear vulnerable plastic, temporary covers over the teeth before having these removed again at the final fitting appointment.

Tooth Whitening by Elaine Halley - Principal of Cherrybank Dental Spa

By: Elaine Halley - Principal of Cherrybank Dental Spa

Dentists in Perth

– “Tooth Whitening”

There are currently many techniques available within the field of conservative and restorative dentistry, which allow for greater conservation of tooth tissue than with conventional indirect techniques.

Aesthetic improvement may be desired by patients for a number of reasons, for instance, the colour, position, or shape of teeth. Tooth whitening or dental bleaching can be an effective technique for the treatment of discoloured teeth.

The problem with these treatments occurs due to continuing negotiations between the BACD/GDC and Europe as to what is legal or illegal in the practice of tooth whitening. This controversy has been ongoing for many years, and is still going on now – leaving many of the profession uncertain as to what they are allowed to offer their patients under European regulations.
