Regularly Exercising Provide Significant Long-Term Benefits

Building and sticking to a regular exercise regime can be tricky at first, but it’s worth persevering as exercise provides numerous long-term benefits. Many people find exercising energising, and especially when they feel fitter and stronger, and there are other significant benefits too.

Regularly exercising can:

  • Help with weight control or aid weight loss
  • Reduce your risk of Type II diabetes, some cancers and heart disease
  • Improve your muscle and bone strength, reducing the risk of osteoporosis later in life
  • Improve your overall mood and mental health
  • Increase agility so daily tasks are easier and you are less likely to have a fall
  • Help you to live a longer and healthier life

Consistency is important as it’s critical to exercise regularly. You don’t need to work out every day and especially if you take vigorous exercise as rest days are important. Strenuous exercise isn’t right for everyone, and even a thirty-minute brisk daily walk can provide enormous health benefits. If it has been a while since you last exercised regularly, make sure you take it slowly and consult your GP before beginning a new exercise regime. One common mistake is to exercise too hard, resulting in an injury that can prevent any physical activity.

What Is Crown Lengthening and Should I Consider This Treatment?

We perform crown lengthening treatments quite regularly, and it’s a procedure that removes gum tissue and sometimes bone from the front of your upper jaw, exposing more of your natural teeth.

Who Needs a Crown Lengthening Treatment?

Sometimes, we recommend this procedure if a tooth needs to be restored and where not enough structure protrudes above the gum line. This can happen if a tooth breaks off or if it is substantially damaged or decayed. Exposing more of the natural tooth allows our dentists to place a crown more easily. Often, a crown lengthening treatment is carried out to correct what’s called a “gummy smile” when someone exposes too much gum tissue during smiling or talking.

How Is It Done?

We use local anaesthesia to keep you comfortable during crown lengthening and the time required depends on how many teeth must be treated. Even if only a single tooth needs treating, we usually need to lengthen the neighbouring teeth too so that we can create an even and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Our dentist will carefully remove the excess gum tissue and any excess bone so that your teeth will automatically look longer. It will take a while for your gums to heal completely, and we provide precise instructions on how to care for your mouth during healing.

Rejuvenate Your Smile with Facial Injectables

As we age, skin loses its natural elasticity and volume. Ageing can create fine lines and wrinkles, as well as deeper lines, folds and grooves. Facial injectables are a non-invasive and quite gentle way to soften the signs of ageing without the need for invasive and costly surgery and include dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections.

Dermal Filler Injections

Dermal filler injections help to replace lost volume in the skin and are useful in treating deeper lines and folds including nasolabial and marionette lines that develop between the nose, mouth and chin. Often these lines are the first to show. Dermal fillers are also useful in creating beautiful, plumper lips and can enhance facial structure by creating fuller cheeks.

Anti-wrinkle Injections

Your facial muscles contract and relax many times, eventually creating fine lines and wrinkles known as dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles most often develop around the eyes and forehead. Anti-wrinkle injections relax these muscles, automatically creating a smoother appearance.

Why See a Dentist for Facial Injectables?

Dentists have advanced knowledge of facial anatomy and know exactly how each facial muscle works, so they are the very best people to see for facial injectables. They can use one or both treatments to help provide a fresher and subtly enhanced facial appearance and treatments last for several months before they need topping up.
