Should I Use an Oral Irrigation System?

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

I have had several crowns in for 7 years, and am in the process of having 3 implants where I had a bridge.

I am always having to use inter-dental brushes and floss, but don’t seem to be able to get all the debris out from between my teeth. My gums are healthy but have started to shrink away from my crowns a little. Would it be safe to use one of the recommended oral irrigation systems, or would it make my gums recede more?

My Gums Are Receding From Over-brushing. I Now Have A Good Oral Health Regime. Is There Any Treatment That Can Help Me?

Tuesday, March 18th, 2014

Hello Dr Patel, I’m hoping for some advice. I have very thin gums at the bottom front of my mouth and receding on one tooth. This is due to overbrushing. I now follow a strict oral regime including brushing in small circular motions using a soft bristled toothbrush, flossing and using interdental brushes, at night time and taking vitamin supplements. The thinning and receding is causing me much distress and anxiety. What are my treatment options? Can anything be done about this or should I just continue my regime. Thanks, I hope you can help me with this problem.

Despite My Good Oral Health Regime, I Still Suffer From The Problem Of Bad Breath, Is There Anything I Can Do?

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Hi Andrew, I’ve been suffering with bad breath for a long time now and I see the dentist every 4 months. They are happy of my cleaning, and the dentist suggested to me to carry with this cleaning method. I brush twice a day and clean my tongue by using an inter-dental brush.  I gargle with mouthwash but I still have this bad breath problem. Even with my dentist scaling my teeth every 4 months time and when I do that I feel little better but it is no solution. Please help me to sort out this problem. Thank you. I look forward to your advice.
