Procedures that restore weakened teeth to a more functional state
With good home and professional oral health care, most of our Surbiton patients will hopefully have healthy and strong teeth throughout their lives. Where teeth are not looked after so well though, the structure of the teeth may weaken, and even those that are treated, say with larger dental fillings, may not be as strong as they once were.
Healthy and strong teeth are important and can help us to live a more fulfilling life. Too many people have teeth that have weakened over time and this may lead to them being careful about what they eat.
If we have teeth that have become damaged, even if no decay etc has occurred, we run the risk of further harm if we continue to eat harder foods. Teeth that have weakened enamel may well crack or even break. For this reason, many people opt to avoid harder foods and instead, choose softer ones in order to protect their teeth.
This may not be a problem for some but we are sure that many people will have given up on their favourite foods, and mealtimes can then become something that we do simply to obtain the necessary nutrition but which lack the enjoyment factor. As anyone can see by the number of cookery programmes on TV, eating is one of the great pleasures in life and most would agree that denying ourselves that makes for a less fulfilling life.
