Love is in the air

It almost seems as if it’s Valentines Day with all the love surrounding the UltraSmile* Team. This year so far our Head Nurse Neli has married David, Sannaz our Hygienist has also married, babies have been born to Fernanda, Tahera and Rosie and today our Nurse Hawa will be celebrating her marriage with family and friends in a palatial North London venue. Sarah, Neli and Sannaz have their dresses at the ready – just waiting for clinic to finish and they will be off! All the very best to Hawa and Abubakar from all the Team.

Sugar and Spice

Nov 01

With Halloween just behind us yet again and Christmas on the horizon there is quite a bit of sweet consumption going on in the households of England! We at UltraSmile* think a crunchy apple a far sweeter alternative on all accounts – not only it it delicious and sweet, but it does you good and is a natural tooth cleanser too.

Oral Cancer Month

Nov 02

1st November sees the British Dental Foundation launch of Mouth Cancer Action Month supported by Denplan and Simplyhealth from 1 – 30 November.  Ultrasmile* Dentistry always includes an Oral Cancer Screening with every dental check-up and for the month of November we are also including a free hygiene treatment as well.  So if you are due a check-up now is a good time to make that appointment!  Call us now on 020 7 093 4488 and check out our website www.ultrasmile.co.uk. We are running a special promotion for Oral Cancer Month and that is if you pay for a Check Up (£95), we will give you a free Hygiene appointment (worth £65) as well as an Oral Cancer check up.

If you’re due for a dental check-up make sure that your dentist is screening you for Oral Cancer.   The British Dental Foundation aim is to help raise awareness of a disease that could claim 30,000 lives over the next decade and to encourage the public to find out more about a disease that has almost doubled within a generation.

Experts forecast around 60,000 people will develop mouth cancer within the next ten years. Without early detection, half will die. However, with early detection, five year survival rates can increase to up to 90 per cent. Unlike most other cancers, cases of mouth cancer are set to increase, which is why the public need more information on the risk factors and the signs and symptoms of the disease.

Latest figures show mouth cancer killed more people than road traffic accidents in 2010, and Chief Executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, Dr Nigel Carter OBE, said: “This fact highlights the danger posed by mouth cancer. It also highlights a lack of awareness about the disease and a need for the entire healthcare profession to support the campaign by educating the public.

“Smoking, drinking alcohol to excess, poor diet, smokeless tobacco and, more recently, the human papilloma virus (HPV) are all risk factors which can contribute to mouth cancer. People who smoke and drink to excess are up to 30 times more likely to develop the disease, so it is crucial we continue to educate the public about these risks. The number of cases of mouth cancer is continuing to grow, more women are contracting the disease and there’s an increasing risk of younger people being affected, especially by HPV.

“As a result it is really important that everyone knows the warning signs for mouth cancer. They include ulcers which do not heal within three weeks, red and white patches in the mouth and unusual lumps or swellings in the mouth. Our message to everyone is simple. If in doubt, get checked out.”

HALLOWEEN CAN BE A ‘STICKY’ TIME OF YEAR FOR KIDS SO MAKE SURE YOU REMIND THEM ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF ORAL HYGIENE

Oct 25

If you’re worried about what to do with the huge bag of sweets your children might be collecting during their Halloween Trick or Treating and the effect on their teeth,  UltraSmile* Dentistry’s (www.ultrasmile.co.uk)   Dr Thang Nghiem has some great advice on oral hygiene during this ‘sticky’ time of year.
“Children should enjoy Halloween – it can be a lot of fun but sugary sweets and drinks can have a damaging effect on our teeth and so it is a good time to remind ourselves and our children about  good oral hygiene.  It is not actually about how much sugar we eat but about long it stays in our mouths.
The best time to eat sweets and other sugary foods is at mealtimes.  This is because we produce more saliva at mealtimes which helps to neutralize the acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and also helps to rinse away food particles and sugary substances.
The sweets that cause the most problems are boiled sweets, lollipops ,  and gobstoppers and sticky toffees as all of these remain in the mouth for a longer time while they are being eaten.  These sweets combine with the natural bacteria in the mouth and form acids that wear away the protective tooth enamel eventually causing tooth decay.
We can all take simple steps to help reduce tooth decay such as
•    Replace sugary drinks that have a high sugar and acid content with water
•    Avoid snacking between meals
•    Chew sugarless gum which creates more saliva production and helps to wash away any sugar and harmful acids
•    Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes at a time using a fluoride toothpaste and during Halloween and other festive times when we are likely to consume more sugary foods then brush 3 times a day and don’t forget to floss
•    Replace your toothbrush regularly – around every 3 – 4 months
•    Visit your dentist for regular check ups

Summertime Smiles at Ultrasmile

Jun 09

Well Summer is upon us once again.! Whilst the perfect thing to offset your pearly whites is a Tan,  if you need a helping hand to brighten things up our Teeth Whitening is the perfect solution.

Tooth whitening is a way of lightening the natural colour of teeth using bleaching methods. Tooth colour varies among people. Teeth can become discoloured through red wine, coffee, smoking and age.

For heavily stained teeth in some cases a procedure as simple as a thorough scale and polish from a dental hygienist can significantly improve their appearance and make them look “whiter”.

Check out what some recent members of the Press have been saying about our Teeth Whitening and Hygeine treatments !!.
