Additionally, they found those with gum disease were 3.5 times more likely to be admitted to intensive care and also 4.5 times more likely to require a ventilator. Read more here

Anti Wrinkle Injections help Bruxism, reducing teeth grinding and relieve jaw clenching. Bruxism is a common and debilitating problem. Not only does it wear down, break and damage the teeth and fillings but regular and persistent grinding of the teeth can also result in jaw ache, headache, neck ache and earache.

Bruxism is usually a subconscious behaviour performed whilst one is asleep and can cause facial pain and headaches. It is commonly caused by anxiety. Left untreated, it often gives rise to poor quality sleep and damaged teeth. Bruxism may lead to a variety of problems. Excessive grinding can damage teeth and dental fillings, often resulting in loose or broken teeth and crack-lines in teeth which results in further complications and possible tooth extraction. It can cause the outer enamel of the teeth to slowly wear away, leading to tooth sensitivity. It can cause jaw dysfunction, headaches (particularly morning headaches), and pain in the muscles of the face: bruxing causes the muscles to be overactive, giving rise to these symptoms. It can cause inflammation of the temporo-mandibular joint. Noisy tooth grinding may disturb your sleep - or your partner's!.

Do not hesitate to contact BrightSmile Clinic if you experience any of the signs of bruxism, Dr Massoudi will carry out an examination of your mouth with special attention to your jaw and your bite.

The unexpected dangers of gum disease

Friday 29th March 2019

Medical News Today

Gum disease is common and unpleasant, but, according to a growing body of evidence, it could also play a role in a surprising range of seemingly unrelated health problems.  

Plaque — a sticky substance that contains bacteria — builds up on teeth. If it is not brushed away, the bacteria can irritate the gums. The gums may then become swollen, sore, or infected; this is referred to as gingivitis. In general, gum disease can be treated or prevented by maintaining a good oral health regime. However, if it is left to develop, it can result in periodontitis, which weakens the supporting structures of the teeth. To read the full article in MedicalNewsToday click here
