Baby’s teeth come through usually from 6months to 3 years. However some babies can be born with teeth!
As soon as you can see any teeth start brushing.
Use a fluoridated toothpaste with greater than 1000ppm fluoride.
You can start with a smear & build up to a pea sized amount on a baby soft small headed toothbrush.
Facial rejuvenation is now available at the practice.
This includes fillers as well as Botulinum toxin.
AzzalureR BotoxR Dysport R are trade marks for Botulinum Toxin. These are used in facial aesthetics to remove wrinkles on the face forehead and from around the eyes.
Emervel is used as a filler to smooth out the wrinkles of ageing.

Gum disease (periodontal disease) affects 98% of us and is the most common cause of tooth loss. Plaque and calculus collects on or around teeth and undermines the gum health causing bleeding gums. Smoking makes things worse!
50% of people with gum disease will lose their teeth.
There is also a link with heart disease diabetes and other chronic illness-
Good oral hygiene- cleaning teeth twice a day with an electric tooth brush and using glides teepees and floss will help to stop this. Also a regular visit to our HYGIENIST will help keep your mouth healthy.
So healthy mouth- healthy body!

ALL WELCOME TO JOIN .
The ITV documentary on dentistry in Manchester was very disappointing !
A very old fashioned representation of dentistry using old fashioned Media sensationalism! An great opportunity to educate people on the great advances that have been made in dentistry over the last 40 years was sadly missed.
It was a real shame, our patients are introduced to the most up to date techniques in Oral health management , treatments and prevention, and would not recognise the dentistry seen in the program. There were only fleeting references to contemporary procedures such as Implants .
An opportunity lost!
