Our December Newsletter….

15th December 2021

Hello and welcome to our December newsletter. We hope you are all keeping well and that you are enjoying the festive season!. In this months newsletter we share a little advice about sweets and the impact they have on our oral health. We also explain about our solution to chipped or broken teeth. Additionally we’ve also included our usual updates, question of the month and team news!. 
Sweets and the impact they have on our teeth…
“Don’t eat sweets, or your teeth will all rot out” is a phrase you likely heard as a child. If you’re a parent, you may have even said it. In reality, the damage that eating too much sugar can do to teeth should make everyone listen to that sage advice.How Do Cavities Develop?Did you know your mouth is full of bacteria? It’s true. Some are good for the inside of your mouth. Others, not so much. The harmful bacteria feed on the sugar and carbohydrates, also known as starches, that you eat, and together, they create acids. Acid-producing bacteria can do two things. First, they can destroy the enamel (shiny outer layer of your tooth). Next, if left untreated, they will generate cavities. They go into the deeper layers of your tooth, creating a hole, causing pain and possible tooth loss.How Does Your Mouth Fight Cavities?Your teeth are always susceptible to cavity-making acids. However, this damage can be reversed by minerals. Minerals come from the enamel of your teeth and your saliva through a process called remineralisation. It generates minerals like calcium and phosphates, both of which are good for strengthening teeth. Fluoride is another mineral that comes into play and also helps repair your weakened enamel. It’s a great process, but it can only do so much. To keep your teeth healthy, you have to limit your sugar intake. That includes starches.What Are Ways To Remineralise Tooth Enamel?Cutting down on sugar is a good start. Here are some other ways to promote remineralisation and improve the enamel of your teeth. Stimulate your saliva flow by chewing sugarless gum and eat high-fibre vegetables and fruits. It helps to bathe your teeth in minerals. Calcium and phosphates strengthen teeth, so keep dairy products in your diet.Finally, fluoride is a mineral that prevents tooth decay and reverses it in its early stages, according to NHS England. Drink plenty of water and brush regularly with a toothpaste that contains 1,350 to 1,500 ppm fluoride. The NHS also recommends professional fluoride treatments from a dentist.Ultimately, be mindful of your sugar intake, and teach your kids to be as well. When you eat sugar, brush afterwards with fluoride toothpaste, and make sure you also eat the healthy foods that strengthen your teeth. Keep up with your regular dental visits for good measure. Then, you can enjoy your sweet life, only with fewer cavities.

We Are Listening….
We want you to know that we take any kind of feedback seriously here at Moonlight Dental Surgery. Each month we take a look at all our patient reviews and feedback, we analyse the results and determine any outstanding trends or concerns that need attention.

In the past month we have continued to receive similar feedback about the wait for an appointment booking. We are continuing to do everything we can to open more diary space and we are in the middle of hiring an additional dentist to open up another diary, creating a lot more availability. 

We thank you for your patience and continued understanding. 
Question of The Month….
Each month we publish a question that one of our patients has asked. 
This month’s question was:

Q: Are you closing over Christmas?

A: We are only closing on the Bank Holidays. All other days it’s business as usual!

Our Perfect Solution to Broken or Chipped Teeth….
Here at Moonlight Dental Surgery, we pride ourselves on changing lives, one smile at a time!There have been huge advances in the materials used in bonding dentistry in recent years, meaning composite bonding can be used for disguising minor imperfections in the front teeth, closing small gaps and hiding minor tooth rotations, with no damage to your teeth.Composite bonding is a pain-free experience that requires, in most cases, just one visit to Moonlight Dental Surgery. Your dentist will be able to choose a shade of resin that closely matches the colour of your teeth, meaning that the results will look entirely natural.How It Works1. Your dentist picks a shade of resin that matches the natural colour of your teeth.2. The resin is carefully applied to your teeth, with no need for any work or damage to them.3. Your dentist then carefully shapes and smooths the resin to hide any imperfections, for a result that looks entirely natural.4. Once the resin has been shaped, it is hardened very quickly with the help of a special light.Although composite bonding treatment does not last as long as veneers, many patients find the treatment is highly cost-effective. It can also be repeated with no damage at all to your teeth.Life Benefits1. A natural, healthy smile that you are proud to show off.2. No preparation of your teeth is required, meaning they remain strong.3. Treatment can usually be completed in one short visit to the practice. If you are interested in our fantastic, smile making solutions email us at [email protected], visit our website or call 01753 526301 for more information or alternatively click the button below to book your consultationBook Now!
