Lifestyle tips for healthy teeth

Taking care of your general health as well as your teeth is the key to making the most of your smile.
Video: wisdom teeth
Brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing them daily and having regular check-ups with a dentist can help keep your teeth healthy. But diet, smoking and drinking alcohol also have an effect on dental health.
A healthy diet
What you eat and drink can cause tooth decay, so a healthy diet is important for your teeth. A healthy diet contains foods from different groups, including fruit and vegetables, starchy foods (rice, pasta, bread and potatoes), some protein-rich food (such as fish, meat, eggs and lentils) and some dairy foods. Find out more about how to eat a balanced diet.
Sugar
Limiting the amount of sugar you eat and drink is important to prevent tooth decay. Have sugary food and drink only at mealtimes and don't eat sugary snacks between meals.
Most of the sugars we eat and drink are contained in processed and ready-made food and drinks. These include:
sweets, chocolate, cakes and biscuits
buns, pastries and fruit pies
sponge puddings and other puddings
table sugar added to food or drinks, such as tea
sugary breakfast cereals
jams, marmalades and honey
ice cream
dried fruit or fruit in syrup
syrups and sweet sauces
sugary drinks, including soft drinks, fizzy drinks, milk drinks and alcoholic drinks
fruit juice
A glass of fruit juice counts towards your five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, but it also contains sugar. When you have sugary food or drink with a meal, it can be less damaging to your teeth than if you eat or drink it on its own. Try to drink fruit juice only at mealtimes.
Smokers' teeth
Smoking can prevent you from having gleaming, healthy teeth. Smoking turns your teeth yellow, causes bad breath and increases your risk of gum disease, breathing problems and lung cancer. If you smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day, you're six times more likely to develop mouth cancer than someone who doesn't smoke. So giving up smoking is important if you want to look and feel better.
Find advice on how to stop smoking.
Alcohol and tooth decay
Excessive consumption of alcohol has been linked to an increased risk of developing mouth cancer. According to Cancer Research UK, 75-80% of mouth cancer patients say they frequently drink alcohol.
Alcohol can also erode the enamel on the outside of your teeth, leading to decay. If this happens, you may need to go to the dentist for a filling. 
Read more about how to cut down on drinking.
A whiter smile
If you want to keep your teeth as white as possible, try cutting out substances that can stain them. Wine, cigarette smoke, tea and coffee can all discolour teeth. Keep these to a minimum or cut them out completely to stop your teeth from becoming stained.
xx Why is Oral Health Important for Men
November 04, 2012, 01:26:52 PM by Isaac Adeniran
Why is Oral Health Important for Men?
 

Men are less likely than women to take care of their physical health and, according to surveys and studies, their oral health is equally ignored. Good oral health recently has been linked with longevity. Yet, one of the most common factors associated with infrequent dental checkups is just being male. Men are less likely than women to seek preventive dental care and often neglect their oral health for years, visiting a dentist only when a problem arises. When it comes to oral health, statistics show that the average man brushes his teeth 1.9 times a day and will lose 5.4 teeth by age 72. If he smokes, he can plan on losing 12 teeth by age 72. Men are also more likely to develop oral and throat cancer and periodontal (gum) disease.
 
 
Why is periodontal disease a problem?


Periodontal disease is a result of plaque, which hardens into a rough, porous substance called tartar. The acids produced and released by bacteria found in tartar irritate gums. These acids cause the breakdown of fibers that anchor the gums tightly to the teeth, creating periodontal pockets that fill with even more bacteria. Researchers have found a connection between gum disease and cardiovascular disease, which can place people at risk for heart attacks and strokes. See your dentist if you have any of these symptoms:

 
Bleeding gums during brushing
Red, swollen or tender gums
Persistent bad breath
Loose or separating teeth


Do you take medications?


Since men are more likely to suffer from heart attacks, they also are more likely to be on medications that can cause dry mouth. If you take medication for the heart or blood pressure, or if you take antidepressants, your salivary flow could be inhibited, increasing the risk for cavities. Saliva helps to reduce the cavity-causing bacteria found in your mouth.


Do you use tobacco?


If you smoke or chew, you have a greater risk for gum disease and oral cancer. Men are affected twice as often as women, and 95 percent of oral cancers occur in those over 40 years of age.


The most frequent oral cancer sites are the tongue, the floor of the mouth, soft palate tissues in back of the tongue, lips and gums. If not diagnosed and treated in its early stages, oral cancer can spread, leading to chronic pain, loss of function, irreparable facial and oral disfigurement following surgery and even death. More than 8,000 people die each year from oral and pharyngeal diseases. If you use tobacco, it is important to see a dentist frequently for cleanings and to ensure your mouth remains healthy. Your general dentist can perform a thorough screening for oral cancer.

 
Do you play sports?

If you participate in sports, you have a greater potential for trauma to your mouth and teeth. If you play contact sports, such as football, soccer, basketball and even baseball, it is important to use a mouthguard, which is a flexible appliance made of plastic that protects teeth from trauma. If you ride bicycles or motorcycles, wear a helmet.

 
Taking care of your teeth
 
To take better care of your oral health, it is important to floss daily, brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice daily and visit your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings. Here are some tips to better dental health:

 
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to reach every surface of each tooth. If the bristles on your toothbrush are bent or frayed, buy a new one.
 Replace your toothbrush every three months or after you've been sick.
 Choose a toothpaste with fluoride. This can reduce tooth decay by as much as 40 percent.
 Brush properly. To clean the outside surfaces of your teeth, position the brush at a 45-degree angle where your gums and teeth meet. Gently move the brush in a circular motion using short, gentle strokes. To clean the inside surfaces of the upper and lower front teeth, hold the brush vertically. Make several gentle strokes over each tooth and its surrounding gum tissue. Spend at least three minutes brushing.
 Floss properly. Gently insert floss between teeth using a back-and-forth motion. Do not force the floss or snap it into place. Curve the floss into a C-shape against one tooth and then the other.\

xx The Secret To A Dazzling Movie Star Smile
May 14, 2012, 08:30:56 PM by Success Writer
"The Secret To A Dazzling Movie Star Smile!"
An unattractive smile is no longer a matter of hitting (or missing) the genetic lottery… it’s now a matter of what you choose for yourself and your life.

If you want to fix unattractive gaps between your teeth… cover permanent staining… or correct crooked, chipped, or worn teeth, porcelain veneers may be an excellent solution.
Also known as “dental veneers” or “laminates,” porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to fill in gaps, correct discoloration, and create the look of an even, perfect smile.

Veneers are custom designed to fit your smile…
And although porcelain is known to be quite brittle, it becomes strong and exceptionally durable when it is bonded to teeth!

The procedure for getting veneers is very simple and straightforward – all you need is a few appointments with us and voila! You will leave our office with the movie star smile you’ve always dreamed of!
Veneers give you a mega watt, eye-catching smile… a big reason why they are so popular among Hollywood starlets!

xx Instant Fix For Missing Teeth
May 14, 2012, 08:30:25 PM by Success Writer
"A Quick, Almost Instant Fix For Missing Teeth…


That Looks SO Natural, No One Will Know The Difference!"
If you’ve been unlucky and even lost several teeth, many dentists may tell you there is nothing they can do to help you regain your full smile.
But don’t be discouraged!
There are other options for you… and one of the most effective of them all is a dental bridge.
A dental bridge is simply a group of crowns that are connected together that replace several missing teeth.
A dental bridge is simply one or more false teeth that are fused between two crowns. Once in place, the bridge fills in the gap left by missing teeth.

Bridges are also useful for keeping the remaining teeth surrounding the gap in place, and this is important, because when you lose even one tooth, the surrounding teeth have a tendency to move.
This movement can lead to:
•   Changes in your bite (the way your teeth fit together)
•   Jaw pain and headaches caused by bite misalignment
•   Decay or loss of surrounding healthy teeth
Bridges are a popular choice among many patients, because they allow you to avoid the sunken look in the gum line that’s usually associated with a group of missing teeth in the same area.
And this is important, because this sunken look can age the look of your face… and of course we want to avoid this!

A well-constructed bridge can also help to:
•   Decrease your chances of developing gum disease
•   Correct a misalignment in the bite
•   Improve your chewing and the clarity of your speech
A dental bridge can last for up to 10 years or more!

xx How To Repair Weak, Decaying Teeth
May 14, 2012, 08:29:51 PM by Success Writer
"How To Repair Weak, Decaying Teeth –
 And Instantly Restore a Youthful Appearance!"
If you have more extensive tooth damage or decay, such as teeth that…
•   Are decayed or damaged
•   Are broken, split, or fractured
•   Contain older, obvious-looking fillings that need to be replaced
… your teeth may be too weak to apply dental bonding materials to.

But don’t worry, there are other options for you… you may be an excellent candidate for a crown!
A crown is essentially a prosthetic sleeve that slides over top of your existing tooth to create a more attractive, healthy, symmetrical looking tooth.
Crowns have the same look, shape and function as natural teeth, but the hard shell exterior helps to protect and strengthen the real, weaker tooth it encases.

You can choose to have your crown made from several materials:
•   Full porcelain
•   Porcelain fused with metal
•   Metal (including gold or stainless steel)
•   Ceramic

Today, many patients choose full porcelain or ceramic crowns to achieve a more natural, sparkling smile.
And if you have older, more obvious looking metal crowns, we can easily replace them with new, more natural looking prosthetics that match the size, shape, and color of your other teeth.

xx How To Eliminate Cracks, Chips, And Other Small Flaws In Your Teeth
May 14, 2012, 08:28:53 PM by Success Writer
"How To Eliminate Cracks, Chips, And Other Small Flaws In Your Teeth… Without Breaking The Bank!"
Do you have minor flaws like small chips, cracks or other imperfections in your teeth? If so, dental bonding may be a fast and inexpensive way to improve the appearance or your smile!

If you have…
•   Gaps in between your teeth
•   Small chips or cracks
•   Discolored patches
… dental bonding could be an excellent corrective treatment for you.
In this procedure, we mix a paste composite that is expertly matched to the color of your existing, natural teeth.

The material is then molded into place – over the crack or discolored patch being treated for example – so that the final look and overall shape of the tooth will match your other teeth!
Next, the composite is hardened with a high-intensity light beam, and once dry, the tooth or teeth being treated will look perfectly smooth and flawless.

Because of its low cost and one-visit treatment, dental bonding is an extremely popular procedure!
Plus, dental bonding is relatively painless! Patients generally don’t need any anesthetic whatsoever! (In a minute, you'll have an opportunity to get a Free Consultation to see if dental bonding is right for you!)
Dental bonding can even last for up to 10 to 15 years with minor touch-ups every now and then as needed.
Again, I’ll tell you how to go about getting a Free Consultation to see if dental bonding is right for you, but first I want to tell you about…

xx How To Quickly & Easily Eliminate Spaces, Stains, & Discoloration To Your Teeth
May 14, 2012, 08:28:04 PM by Success Writer
From the Office of Dr.Wale Adeleke 08033181698
Motayo Hospital, Ikeja, LAGOS
Tuesday, 10:12am

Dear Friend,
Have you ever noticed that people who have beautiful, full, white smiles tend to exude more confidence than those who don’t?
Wouldn't you agree that the quality of a person’s smile has a dramatic effect on their sense of self-image and self-esteem?
It's absolutely true! If you're someone that wants that perfect smile, look no further. In this report I'm going to show you exactly what you need to do to get it...without spending an arm or a leg.
I'm Dr. Wale Adeleke, and I've had the privilege of actually helping people make the smile they've only envisioned in their minds a reality!
Nothing makes me happier than seeing our happy patients... seeing them beam with satisfaction over their results! Hopefully this can be you too! I'll show you how in a minute, but first listen to this....
A recent independent study by the Nigerians Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that 99.7% of Nigerians believe a smile is an important social asset! Social asset?? Yes, social asset!

This same study asked those surveyed "What types of things do you consider make a smile unattractive?”
Here are the features the respondents said make for an unappealing smile…
•   Discolored, yellow, or stained teeth
•   Missing teeth
•   Crooked teeth
•   Gaps and spaces in teeth
•   Visible cavities

I’ve helped many, many people improve their smiles, and in my professional experience, you can literally feel the confidence oozing out of someone when they feel they’ve achieved a movie star smile! So I can attest first hand to that study!

Many of our patients just can’t stop smiling, showing their gorgeous pearly whites off to the rest of the world…
And if you asked them, they’d tell you that the sun seems brighter, the air smells sweeter, and life is just generally… well… better with a beautiful smile! Is this something you're seeking after? If so, making your smile perfect can help you get there!

While the appearance of the teeth is one of the most important factors contributing to a person’s facial beauty, it’s also the most neglected…
Many people think that procedures to improve their smile would be too expensive, too painful, or not natural looking enough…
But this is a big misconception!

If you suffer from discolored, yellow, or stained teeth… crooked or missing teeth… decaying teeth or cavities… or gaps and spaces in your teeth, there ARE dental procedures available to you to correct these problems!
And these procedures can give you staggeringly beautiful, NATURAL looking results without having to take out a second mortgage on your house to pay for it!

xx Prevention of Tooth Decay
May 14, 2012, 08:24:07 PM by Success Writer

Prevention of  Tooth Decay

" Starting Right NOW… "
There are essentially FOUR ways you can maintain oral health and prevent the onset of tooth decay…
•   Clean your teeth regularly to remove any plaque build-up before it turns deadly. It’s wise to brush your teeth twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening – using a good quality toothbrush.

It’s also necessary to floss to make sure your teeth are free of food particles that may be lodged between your teeth, since food particles provide a nice foothold for “bad” bacteria.
•   Use products that contain fluoride. Use a fluoride-infused toothpaste or mouth rinse to help counteract the effects of any harmful acids that may be present in the mouth.
•   Try to cut back on sweets and other sugary treats that contribute to the creation of acids in the mouth that wear away at your irreplaceable tooth enamel and spur on tooth decay.
•   Make an appointment with a reputable dentist at least every six months for a check-up and thorough cleaning.

Just because you don’t feel pain doesn’t mean you don’t have tooth decay! A proper professional dental examination is essential!
Remember: It’s always easier and less expensive to prevent tooth decay than it is to treat it!
