As we get older suddenly we realised many things we didn't appreciate about being young - being fit, having smooth skin and having all your own teeth. As our loose teeth (and bridges) struggle to deal with chewier food we start eating bland mush and, there is no easy way to say this, OLD PEOPLE FOOD. I'm determined not to let that happen to me and I'm doing everything I can to keep my own teeth as long as possible, and when that's not possible to get the best possible teeth replacement. If you are like me and want to keep on eating whatever you want, I think you'll like my site. It's all about dental health and teeth replacement & maintenance.

Partial dentures refer to removable dental appliances that are used to cover a few missing teeth, rather than having to get a full set of dentures. They can be attached using several different methods. The most common option is the use of metallic clasps that attach to the teeth directly adjacent to the gap in your mouth. Another technique your dentist can employ is the use of precision attachments. These precision attachments are the most discreet option; as such, they tend to be more expensive than using metallic clasps.

If you grind your teeth a lot, especially at night, you may be suffering from bruxism. While this condition may not adversely affect every person who grinds their teeth, excessive bruxism may affect your teeth over time. For example, the constant grinding you suffer from may wear down your teeth or affect their enamel coating. If you have had some cosmetic damage to your teeth, you may be thinking about having veneers fitted to cover up the wear and tear; however, your dentist may be less keen to use this treatment.

If you get a regular toothache at night or during the weekend when your dentist's office is closed, you may be able to manage the pain with over-the-counter medications until your dentist is open for business again. This may not be so easy if you have an abscess on your tooth. Abscess pain can be very bad. Typically, your tooth will be extremely sensitive and may throb painfully or feel tense all of the time, making it hard for you to find relief.
