Signs of Gum Disease

Posted on: October 24th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Gum disease or periodontitis or periodontal disease is often silent, which means that you may not have any symptoms until you reach an advanced stage of the disease. It all begins with bacteria that grow in your mouth that may lead to tooth loss, if not properly treated, because they destroy the tissue surrounding the teeth.

Gum Disease and Gingivitis

Some people confuse periodontitis to gum inflammation called gingivitis. Truth is gingivitis could indeed precede to gum disease, but not all gingivitis progresses to periodontal disease. In the early stages of gum inflammation, bacteria build up and cause the gums to bleed easily and become swollen, especially during brushing or even flossing. However, even though the gums may be tender and irritated, there is no worrying for the teeth, given that they are still firmly in place (in their sockets). This means that no irreversible damage to the tissue or bone has occurred yet.

Unfortunately, if you leave gingivitis untreated, it will definitely advance to gum disease. This is when things get complicated and far more serious than before. The inner layer of the bone and gum form pockets (small spaces between the gums and teeth) as they pull away from the teeth. These pockets become a farmland for bacteria and collect debris. As a result, they become infected, and the body initiates an immune response to fight the bacteria while the plaque continues to grow and spread below the gum line.

The bacteria in the plaque and the enzymes involved when the body is fighting an infection produce poisons or toxins that begin to break down the connective tissue and bone that hold the teeth in their sockets. The pre-mentioned pockets go deeper up the gum, destroying more bone and gum tissue along the way. As the disease progresses, the teeth eventually become loose as they are no longer anchored in place as firmly as before. This means irreversible tooth loss.

Warning Signs of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a nasty condition that affects not only your oral (and overall) health but also your self-confidence. Who feels comfortable having missing teeth? Will you keep on smiling if some your teeth have fallen? It is so sad to see people suffer from such an easily prevented condition.

Some of the warning signs that could alert you and urge you to visit your dentist right away include:

  • Tender, swollen, or red gums.
  • Pain and/or sores in the mouth.
  • Bleeding when brushing or flossing (it may also occur when eating hard food).
  • Gums that have receded or are pulled away from the teeth, making the teeth look longer than what they used to be.
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are separating.
  • Puss between your teeth and gums.
  • Persistent bad breath.
  • A change in the way you bite (teeth that don’t fit together like before).

For obvious reasons, having regular check-ups is critical to detect and treat any problems with your teeth and gums early, so you keep your teeth for as long as possible.

For any concerns or questions, please do not hold back from contacting the Same Day Teeth Suite. Early detection, especially among those with an increased risk of developing gum disease (i.e. smokers and people with diabetes) can save your teeth and your health from serious deterioration.

Don’t wait any longer.

3 Great Choices For Missing Teeth

Posted on: September 13th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

If you have lost a tooth, or a few teeth, either through decay or accident, you may choose to live with the gap.  Alternatively, as with most of our patients, you will want to replace them, and you will want to know what your choices are.  In these simple steps, the SameDay Teeth Suite will explain your options so you can make your decision and restore your smile.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium post surgically implanted into your jawbone. After the healing period of several months, when the implant has fused in place a false tooth is secured to the implant. Where a number of teeth are missing, dentures or bridges can be screwed or clipped onto the implant. Implants are considered the gold-standard restoration in modern day dentistry as they are the strongest, longest lasting, and life-like restorative option available to you.


If only one or two of your teeth are missing, your dentist may recommend a bridge. This consists of two crowns, which are placed on your natural teeth either side of the space, with an artificial tooth in the middle. Bridges are made of porcelain and metal, and there are many designs.

Your dentist will prepare your natural teeth on either side of the space for the crowns to fit on top. The crowns are permanently attached to an artificial tooth in the centre. The biggest advantage, in comparison to dentures, is enhanced aesthetics and a fixed solution.


It is sometimes necessary to extract teeth due to ill health and decay.  After you have teeth removed, it can take several months for your jawbone and gums to heal completely. During this time, your dentist may fit a temporary denture. Your dentist can usually fit this on the same day that your teeth are removed so you can wear it immediately.

As your jaw heals, the temporary denture may become loose and need adjusting. It can take up to six months for your jawbone and gums to become stable. Your dentist will then be able to fit your long-term denture or bridge.

The benefits of dentures are that they are the most economical and non-invasive restorative option. However, the biggest drawback is that they are not fixed and need to be removed to clean. In addition, they have reduced retention, in comparison to other restorative options.

Which Option To Choose

The most appropriate treatment for you will depend on the number of teeth you have missing. It will also depend on where teeth are missing in your mouth and the condition of any remaining teeth. Your general and oral health status will be a determining factor. Your dentist will help you decide which option is best for you.

Your New Teeth

Whichever option you and your dentist decide upon, rest assured you will have natural looking and fully functioning new teeth.  Made by the skilled clinical dental technician at our laboratory, with the assistance of cad-cam technology, each tooth is made individually to not only look good but to work well.  Whether you choose implants, bridges or dentures, your new teeth will be both strong and natural looking.

Wondering about Teeth in a Day?

Posted on: July 25th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Traditionally dental implants were only possible with months of healing as part of the process before the implanted titanium posts could withstand the pressure of the new teeth.  Dentures were then fitted for the intervening period, which could make the patient feel very self-conscious and unhappy during that time.  The wonder of science has advanced the process, and it is now possible to have Teeth in a Day, with no interceding healing period, at the Same Day Teeth Suite in and go home with your replacement teeth fixed in position.

What are Teeth in a Day? They are implants fitted in a day to save you time or the embarrassment of wearing removable dentures.  Often known as Same Day Teeth. Firstly it’s very important to understand not everyone can have the Teeth in a Day procedure. It is essential the patient has a full mouth examination with X-rays, to ascertain the suitability of Teeth in a Day before commencing the treatment. A lot of planning and preparation is carried out by the clinician before treatment takes place.  It is a surgical procedure and cannot be undertaken lightly. We take a 3D CT scan of your mouth to provide us with essential information, such as the quality and volume of your jaw bone, and to locate nerves and blood vessels.  This allows us to place the dental implants with accuracy.

Patients who have teeth that cannot be salvaged due to gum disease, or a full mouth of decayed teeth, or patients with dentures who would prefer to have fixed teeth, may well be suitable candidates.  More importantly, they all wish to avoid dentures and want to go home the same day with their implants and new teeth in place.

The SameDay Teeth Suite employs only the best technicians to prepare and manufacture the finest titanium posts and false teeth in advance of your procedure.  Not only do the posts and teeth have to fit well and feel good, but they must look natural,  and be carefully coloured to match your natural teeth.

And if you are wondering if all this sounds too much for your budget, we offer affordable payment plan options. Our free consultation is designed to assess the very best solution for your missing teeth, as well as finding a payment arrangement to suit you.

Missing front teeth? You might need Dental Implants

Posted on: July 18th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Here at the Same Day Teeth Suite, we see many patients with missing front teeth, and it’s no surprise that these patients are extremely concerned with their dental health.

People are put off dentures and are reluctant to get bridges because they feel that their healthy teeth may be cut – something that can cause further problems in the future – but it is important to remember that there are other options to explore before becoming completely resigned to a life of dental discomfort. What we do here is provide people with other ways to treat their dental problems in order to help them recover at a rate that suits them in – our teams working to ensure this happens both the short and long term.

An option we offer as part of these alternative treatments is dental implants. We deal with a large number of people throughout the year, but one particular patient springs to mind. He had an accident that caused him to lose his front tooth, and we explained that implants were an extremely suitable option, along with the more traditional methods of bridges and implants. After much discussion with the patient to work out what they were most comfortable with, we opted to use the implants – something that worked with great success, despite the seriousness of the case.

Before treatment


We carried out a CT scan, took models and made guides to enable us to place the implant in the most accurate position possible to avoid any complications later down the line. Through placing this high-quality implant in the best position within the patient’s mouth, it allowed us to ensure the treatment was able to remain in place for a considerable amount of time after its implementation. Without such planning, the entire procedure would have been a waste of time, leaving the patient in unnecessary discomfort – something our team do their utmost to avoid.

Dental Implant fitted


Three months later, we took an impression of this implant and with this, we were able to make what is known as an abutment. This is made using CAD/CAM technology – in layman’s terms, it’s extremely well built – and is expected to be strong enough to withstand any general wear and tear over a prolonged period of time. The patient goes to see our technician for a computerised shade match, allowing us to get the best possible colour to match the abutting tooth, and the patient is left with a tooth that fits in perfectly with the rest of his mouth – job done.

Natural looking new front tooth


If you feel that your missing tooth or teeth are hindering your day-to-day life and you feel that the options presented to you by your dentist may not be suitable for you, then don’t panic. Here at the Same Day Teeth Suite, our team of professionals are on hand to provide you with comprehensive care that leaves both you and your mouth feeling happy and healthy. Contact us today here and take the first steps towards dental implant treatment.


The 4 Steps of Tooth Extraction in Nottingham

Posted on: May 16th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Even the toughest and bravest of us baulk at the idea of having a tooth extracted.  The very thought is enough to send us running in the opposite direction. Fortunately for anyone who needs a tooth removed, the Same Day Teeth Suite can make this a painless, stress-free experience, putting your anxieties to rest once and for all.

  1. Why extract teeth?

    Nowadays,  adult teeth are only extracted by your dentist for a  very good reason. Your dentist will do everything in his power to save a tooth before even contemplating extraction. However, this is not always possible. You may have a badly infected or decayed tooth or your wisdom teeth have erupted, and you will be better off having them extracted before they cause serious problems. Perhaps you have a very overcrowded mouth with too many teeth and need to lose a few in order to allow the remainder to be straightened. Alternatively, you need dental implants or dentures and need to have some teeth extracted to make way for implant surgery and your new crowns.

  2. How is a tooth extracted?

    When a tooth can’t be saved or is causing problems, and all alternative remedies have been exhausted, it will have to be extracted. The procedure involves numbing the area with anaesthetic so you can’t feel any pain or discomfort. The only sensation you will feel is a slight pressure as the dentist forcibly moves the tooth, loosening the ligaments and bone enough to allow the tooth to slip out. You may hear an unpleasant splintering noise, but as the whole procedure is over in seconds, there is nothing to worry about. It is as simple as that!

  3. What happens after tooth extraction?

    As soon as the tooth, or teeth, have been removed, the socket of the tooth is packed with a pad of surgical wool, and you bite down to apply pressure. After a few minutes, the bleeding stops, and a clot begins to form. It is always a good idea to ask a family member or friend to drive you home as, for the first 24 hours following tooth extraction, you must not take any exercise. Any increase in blood pressure can cause the socket to start bleeding again. Do not rinse the socket and disturb the clot in the first 24 hours. Do not smoke and avoid alcohol, as these both can disrupt and delay the healing process.

The following day you will need to start hot water and salt mouthwashes to keep the socket clean and assist healing. A gentle rinse, and not a gargle, will prevent shifting the clot which will have formed in the empty socket, causing it to bleed again. If you are on blood thinning medication, your dentist will go over all the essential safeguards before you begin treatment.

What do you do about the gap?

One of the most distressing factors with tooth extraction is the idea of a gap in your teeth. Even just one tooth, especially if it is at the front, can look unsightly, make it awkward to eat or to speak naturally and ruin a smile. Once your mouth has healed, we can begin treatment to resolve the problem with a dental implant fitted into the empty socket and a custom made crown to take the place of your lost tooth. We will soon have you smiling again.

Double Jeopardy – Crown or Bridge with Braces

Posted on: April 25th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Some patients have complex problems and, although they want to straighten their teeth to improve their image and self-esteem, are under the impression they can’t have braces if they already have a crown or a bridge. They believe it is either one thing or another.  Not true.  The Same Day Teeth Suite are happy to correct this misconception and correct your smile.

The first step in repositioning your teeth involves a consultation with the dentist to see what is wrong, be it crooked teeth, uneven teeth, gaps or overcrowding, and to take x-rays to check the overall health of your teeth.  A full examination will determine the stability of an existing crown or bridge, and any other dental work, before treatment commences.  The dentist will discuss with you what is possible, what is probable and what you want to achieve with the end result.


This patient was very embarrassed by his smile, the position of his teeth and the unnatural crown on his central incisor.  He wanted to improve the cosmetic appearance of his teeth and his image.  Self-confidence is an important factor with everyone who wants straight teeth and none of us want to be ashamed when we open our mouth to speak or smile for the camera. A humiliating smile can be so debilitating and can now be repaired discreetly, no matter your age.

After examination of the mouth and proper discussion and planning, it was decided this patient was to have braces to straighten his teeth.  Once the teeth were straightened, he followed on with whitening treatment to improve the colour of his teeth and a high-quality crown, to replace the unsightly crown on his upper central tooth, enhancing the final result.


What a difference!  It is not surprising this patient is delighted with the end result and is happy to show you his new and natural smile.

Brace treatment is a commitment. It is very important the patient wears a retainer every night or every second night following treatment for the rest of life to prevent the teeth from moving and returning to their original position.  But fear not, retainers are no longer as uncomfortable as you might have once imagined.

6 Good Reasons To Replace Your Missing Teeth Now

Posted on: April 4th, 2018 by freshadmin No Comments

Those of us who delay can remember all the lost chances, missed deadlines, and failures we incurred just because of our nasty habit of putting things off until it is often too late.  However, despite the temptation to procrastinate, when it comes to replacing a missing tooth, there are serious consequences.  The Same Day Teeth Suite will alert you to the dangers of hesitation and replace your missing tooth straight away.

When you lose a tooth through injury or decay, you are at risk of:

  • Adjacent teeth drifting into the space provided by the missing tooth.
  • Causing difficulties in cleaning teeth and oral hygiene.
  • An unattractive smile.
  • Developing a lisp or other speech impediment.
  • Developing a poor bite and chewing efficiency.
  • Bone loss.

Act now, to avoid any or all of these problems in the future.  Avoiding treatment will not help you to escape any of these issues. Eventually, they will catch up with you.  Perhaps it is one of your back teeth that is missing. Just because nobody else can see the unsightly gap when you smile does not make it a case of out of sight, out of mind.

There are many options to replace your missing tooth or teeth, and each has their benefits.  There are long-term implications on your oral health, whichever option you choose.  Dental implants are definitely a great way of replacing teeth because they do not involve cutting down adjacent teeth and wearing a denture, a removable appliance.  Dental implants, both in the way they function and look, are the closest thing to a natural tooth.

If you were to delay in replacing your missing tooth, you would make fitting a dental implant much more challenging and the opportunity might be missed altogether.  The problem is that over time the bone will shrink and the implant, a tiny titanium post, will be very difficult to fit into the shrunken jaw bone. It is possible, with today’s technology, to overcome this problem with a minor bone graft before surgically fitting the implant.  Not only is this a more complex procedure but a more expensive one.  You can save yourself time, money and distress by acting immediately.

Implants replace the roots of your teeth. Made of titanium, because it is unlikely to be rejected, the implant is fitted into your bone socket in place of the missing root. A crown, or cap,  is then bonded or screwed to the implant to make it look just like your natural tooth in shape, size and colour and fills the gap of the missing tooth and is what you will see.  The crown not only looks natural but functions in strength and bite in the same way as real teeth.

Our crowns are made by our skilled and experienced technicians to suit your face and to fit and function naturally.  The crowns are made from different materials which not only dictate the final effect but the cost.  If you are delaying replacing missing teeth for fear of how the treatment will impact on your budget, we offer a financial plan to suit everyone.

If you are missing a tooth and need it replaced immediately, contact the Same Day Teeth Suite.
