I wished id looked after my teeth

 

Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth,
And spotted the dangers beneath
All the toffees I chewed,
And the sweet sticky food.
Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth.

I wish I’d been that much more willin’
When I had more tooth there than fillin’
To give up gobstoppers,
From respect to me choppers,
And to buy something else with me shillin’.

When I think of the lollies I licked
And the liquorice allsorts I picked,
Sherbet dabs, big and little,
All that hard peanut brittle,
My conscience gets horribly pricked.

My mother, she told me no end,
‘If you got a tooth, you got a friend.’
I was young then, and careless,
My toothbrush was hairless,
I never had much time to spend.

Oh I showed them the toothpaste all right,
I flashed it about late at night,
But up-and-down brushin’
And pokin’ and fussin’
Didn’t seem worth the time – I could bite!

If I’d known I was paving the way
To cavities, caps and decay,
The murder of fillin’s,
Injections and drillin’s,
I’d have thrown all me sherbet away.

So I lie in the old dentist’s chair,
And I gaze up his nose in despair,
And his drill it do whine
In these molars of mine.
‘Two amalgam,’ he’ll say, ‘for in there.’

How I laughed at my mother’s false teeth,
As they foamed in the waters beneath.
But now comes the reckonin’
It’s methey are beckonin’
Oh, I wish I’d looked after me teeth.

How can you save money by going to the dentist?

As we enter another new year we start to plan ahead, make resolutions, identify new opportunities and look at ways to improve on what we achieved in the previous year. A key focus on everyones mind after christmas and especially in January is our finances, how to make more money? how are we going to save more money? how can we be more financially prepared? etc etc

Going to the dentists is often seen to be a necessary evil for people, a task that we put off for as long as possible. Whilst we are all aware how important our teeth are, we often connect our dentists with pain and fear that most importantly COSTS US.

2014 is the year that we wish to dispell this myth. In avoiding the dentist due to the above preconceptions we cause a deterioration in our oral health. This means that minor issues which can be prevented go untreated and develop into further problems which can cause pain and require costly treatment plans.

PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE

This saying cannot be truer in the field of dentistry. Regular visits to the dentist and hygienist assist in reducing the amount of treatment required, nipping problems in the bud before they arise.

Whilst the below information is taken from an American study, I feel it can be easily related to our patients in Scotland and the rest of the UK. It is definitely worth a look:

“6 Second Toothbrush”

Within the Technology section of the news, I stumbled across this article in which Dentists from manufacturer Blizzadent have used  the scans used by dentists to create braces alongside a 3d printer to create bespoke toothbrushes for each customer. Each brush will contain in excess of 400 soft bristles in which the wearer  is required to grind their teeth in order to clean.

Medical research and new technology is important to the industry and something the team at Dental Studios Scotland actively support, but until this new toothbrush has been tried and tested, with a price tag of 299 Euros we recommend our patients continue to follow their dentists instructions for brushing, and visit the dentist regularly for a scale & polish.

A regular hygienist visit is also recommended, contact your local practice to find out availability.

New treatments available at Kilmarnock Practice

Dr Rebecca Smith at our Kilmarnock Practice is offering these exciting new treatments.

Anti-wrinkle Injections

It works by temporarily blocking fine muscle activity, which allows the skin to relax so that lines appear softer and smoother.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are highly effective at smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, to give that fresh look.
