Shockingly, over 2 million Brits have not visited a dentist in over a decade. Whether you are putting off making an appointment due to a fear of the dentist, being unsure of the costs involved or simply forgetting, you are putting your dental health at huge risk. At Field House Dental Practice, we will carry out a detailed examination of your mouth and then risk assess you (we know its a boring term but its so important when it comes to mouth health) so that we can advise you on how often you need to see the different members of our team, be that dentist, hygienist, oral health educator.  Some patients will require appointments every six months, and others will only need to be seen every nine to twelve months.

The weather has been kind so far this year and those who have already enjoyed one of the early music festivals around the UK, such as Download or the One Big Weekend, have been lucky enough to avoid a major mud bath. That’s not to say it won’t be another picture altogether as the remainder of the summer festivals get underway. Anybody who has been to a music festival will tell you that after the tent, waterproof clothing should be top of the list of priorities. Most people, however, overlook another extremely important item that you really shouldn’t go without - your toothbrush. Read on to learn why this should be one of the most important items to pack. Festivals - a growing trend Here in Britain, we love a music festival - even if it does mean getting soaked to the skin and covered in mud. Of course, Glastonbury...

Dental implant treatment has become an increasingly popular solution over recent decades, especially when it comes to those who have suffered from missing teeth and the side effects that accompany them for long periods of time due to other options being unsuitable. They are widely hailed as a perfect, permanent solution - but is this really the case? In this article, we take a closer look at how long dental implants last. When are dental implants recommended? There is no one reason why dental implants are recommended as the best approach to replacing missing teeth. Generally speaking, they are ideal where the remaining teeth are in good shape and offer an alternative to methods such as crowns and bridges.

On Tuesday 20th March 2018 , dentists, educators and other healthcare professionals teamed up to share a common message - “Say Ahh, think mouth think health.” World Oral Health Day is an annual event that is organized by FDI World Dental Federation and is the largest global awareness campaign on oral health. This year’s campaign focused on a key message highlighting the relationship between what goes on in your mouth and its impact on your wider health. World Oral Health Day - A brief history World Oral Health Day (WOHD) was first declared in 2007 and was originally celebrated on 12 September - the birth date of FDI founder Dr Charles Godon. It was in only in 2013, when the campaign began to attract widespread public attention, that the decision was taken to move it to its current date of 20th March. The choice of date is no coincidence -...

One of our patients, Marcus, has had his fair share of visits to Field House Dental Practice recently. This followed decades of avoiding the dentist for check-ups and treatment. Marcus has kindly put together a timeline of his dental history to show just how much his teeth have improved since he has been coming to see us. 1959 The year I was born. 1968 This was the last time I had physical work done on my teeth for almost 40 years. 2009 After my family were constantly nagging me for many years, I decided to go for a dental check-up. Despite me preparing the dentist about my aversion to the dental trade and me being a quivering wreck on the day, I felt there was no effort to alleviate my fears. I was told that my teeth were a mess and much work was needed. I never returned to any...

Although your dentist plays an essential role in looking after your teeth, good oral hygiene starts with you. So what can you do to help look after your teeth and keep them in tip top condition? Here are 5 tips from the experts here at Field House Dental Practice. 1. Brush correctly Brushing your teeth correctly on a daily basis is one of the main defences in the battle against tooth decay.
