Overcoming rotten teeth in South East London

24 / 10 / 2012

You’d think that in a modern world and a place like south east London, modern dentistry would have retired the problem of rotten teeth for good. Thing is though, look around you and you will find it’s not the case. Some people have different important agendas in their lives, and in rare cases, their teeth aren’t one of them. But if you take this stance and you don’t care about your teeth, and then have them removed and be done with it, because if you allow you teeth to rot, you will be threatening your whole health in the long run: gum disease is a killer and it has been linked to heart disease and kidney failure. Poor oral hygiene is one of the biggest contributing factors to rotten teeth: after only a day, the bacteria left by rotting food in the mouth will allow acids to eat through the enamel and cause tooth decay to set in. The tartar build up around the base of the teeth will also bring on gum disease and over time, your mouth will literally rot away. Two others contributing factors are also poor diet and the avoidance of a dental check-up. Your dentist would have certainly have picked up on any problems had you been bothered to turn up in the first place. Now during the general decay, there comes a crucial crossroads: either you can carry on letting your teeth decay, or you can take the other direction and get them fixed up; it’s a thin line between the two and if you have any self-respect and esteem for yourself, then you’d take the latter route.
