Cosmetic Dentistry Offers Many Aesthetic Choices

In the UK dentistry can be broadly split into two camps - general or cosmetic - and these days many more private dentists are offering both. Although some people will only visit the dentist when they are in pain and require immediate treatment most of us visit for regular check-ups and to ensure constant dental hygiene.General dentistry comprises all oral procedures that are essentially non-cosmetic, such as inserting fillings and fitting bridges and crowns.

Wisdom teeth are types of molars found in the very back of your mouth. These teeth usually appear in late teens or early twenties but may become impacted (fail to erupt) due to lack of room in the jaw or angle of entry. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it may need to be removed. If it is not removed, you may develop gum tenderness, swelling, or even severe pain. Impacted wisdom teeth that are partially or fully erupted tend to be quite difficult to clean and are susceptible to tooth decay, recurring infections, and even gum disease.Each patient's situation is unique. Usually a panoramic X-ray (OPG) is required to determine whether the wisdom teeth will need to be removed and the risk involved. If you need to remove your wisdom teeth, it is better to have them removed sooner rather than later because when you are younger, there is a greater chance that the teeth's roots have not fully formed and the bone surrounding the teeth is less dense.
