Our September Newsletter….

29th September 2022

View this email in your browser
Hello There! We’re pleased to share our September newsletter. We hope you are all keeping well. In this months newsletter we share useful information about Migraines. We also share some information about our fantastic solution to chipped or broken teeth. Additionally we’ve also included our usual updates, question of the month and team news!. 
Migraines…. Don’t suffer in silence….
Migraines – don’t suffer in silence
It’s not just pain that accompanies a migraine. Those suffering, more often than not, are unable to go about their daily life. They might have to take time off work or avoid social events. This condition can be debilitating.
As a migraine is an ‘invisible’ condition, there can be a lot of misunderstanding around it. It’s important to challenge this stigma, so those suffering have access to the support they need.

What is a migraine?
A migraine is a severe headache that can be felt on one side of the head. It’s usually described as a throbbing pain.
It’s a common health condition, affecting around one in five women and one in 25 men in the UK.
There are many reasons why women get migraines more than men. Researchers believe the main cause is due to hormonal fluctuations. It is thought to hit women hardest in their thirties.

The symptoms
Alongside pain, migraines can cause a range of other unpleasant symptoms. This includes:
• Mood swings
• Neck stiffness
• Constipation
• Food cravings

After an attack, migraines can leave you feeling drained, tired and washed-out.

What happens?
Migraines can last from four to 72 hours, and appear as a:
• Migraine with aura – sufferers may see flashing lights or other warning signs
• Migraine with no aura – the most common type, where there are no prior warning signs
• Migraine with aura but no headache – otherwise known as a ‘silent migraine’. Those affected have prior warning signs, but no actual headache develops

Migraines and oral health
Researchers believe there may be a link between dental issues and headaches. Missing, loose or crooked teeth make the jaw muscles work harder. The result? Muscle inflammation that can cause a migraine.
So, it’s vital that you continue to look after your oral health, to help avoid headaches and migraines. It’ll help to prevent many other health conditions, too.
A condition called bruxism (chronic tooth grinding/clenching) can also trigger headaches and migraines. Those with bruxism are putting pressure on their teeth, overworking their muscles, tendons and joints.
Knowing whether your migraines are the cause of bruxism is hard to gauge. Tooth grinding/clenching can happen while asleep, meaning it could go undetected for some time. This is why attending your dentist is so important – they’ll be able to spot the signs if something isn’t right.

How can your dentist help you?
If you experience migraines, and suspect an oral issue is to blame, don’t suffer in silence.
Our dentists are members of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD). This means their continued learning is second to none. They are committed to education and training, keeping their skills and knowledge up to date in a wide range of areas. Our dentists have plenty of experience and a real passion for dentistry, always providing treatment that is safe and ethical.
You can always depend on your BACD dentist for support. Have a chat with our team to find out more today!To learn more about our treatment solutions visit our website.
Team Update….
Welcome Lynette!!
This is Lynette, our lovely new receptionist! She is already settling in really well and we’re pleased to have her as part of the Moonlight family! Be sure to say ‘hi’ when you are next visiting 🙂 
Feel free to follow us on social media for more team news.
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 repetitive feedback about cancellation of appointments. We want to assure you that we do everything in our power to prevent cancelling patient appointments. The only times we will cancel an appointment is if there is insufficient staff or if there is an equipment failure that could cause a health and safety risk. We really don’t like having to cancel appointments and cause inconvenience to our patients.

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: How long is the current wait for a general check-up?A: We are currently offering appointments for general dentistry in late November. However, we are in the process of hiring an additional dentist. This will help shorten the wait time significantly! We appreciate your continued understanding.

Have you heard of Composite Bonding?….
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 Works
1. 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 Benefits
1. 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.
