Oral cosmetic dentist Hampstead? Why do I have to give a medical history when I attend the dentist? The dentist not only needs to check the health of your head and neck and inside of your mouth but is also assessing your overall health. This includes your past and current medical history, any allergies or chronic medical conditions and any medication you might be taking. Letting the dentist know what medication you are on is important as some medications have an effect on the treatment that the dentist prescribes. For example, some medications cause your glands to produce less saliva causing “dry-mouth”. This can increase the risk of decay for some people as the plaque is more likely to dry on the teeth rather than be washed away by saliva. The dentist and hygienist can advise ways to reduce such risks and a full medical history can help them to assist you.

Scientists have discovered that periodontal disease is linked to coronary heart disease and stroke, especially for people who smoke or have high blood pressure. What is the treatment for bad breath? Once we have determined the degree and cause of the breath problem, the treatment can take many forms. If medical problems are found to be the underlying cause of bad breath, proper referral will be made. Recommendations will be made by the dentist to correct and treat any dental disease that is directly related to the breath problem or gum disease. Our hygienist will monitor and chart the condition of your gums before and after root planing and scaling. She will instruct in the best way to brush your teeth and gums and will advise on best devices and products to use as an effective home care program to destruct the volatile sulfur gases. In some patients with high decay rate our hygienist will perform a SALIVA TEST which acts as a screening aide for dental caries and can determine the presence of plaque retentive sites with high bacterial counts.
With dental veneers, a layer of porcelain is placed over the discoloured surface of your tooth, making it appear much lighter. Your dentist in Hampstead can even paint over the veneer in a dental cement of whichever shade you like, to achieve the perfect look for you. You can also be born with discoloured teeth (congenitally discoloured or malformed teeth) or unsightly banding of the teeth if you had medication or suffered any systemic disease at the time the teeth were developing.
A comprehensive report and treatment plan will be written out for you clearly detailing clinical and aesthetic problems, treatment solutions and options, treatment appointment sequencing and duration and estimated costs.

Dr Sanei would be delighted to explain his recommendations to you by email, phone or during a second complimentary discussion appointment to make sure you are fully aware of the findings, the benefits of treatment and successful outcomes.
