If we had a bad toothache, we would book an emergency appointment to see our dentist. But if we have lost a back tooth or have a twinge on one side of our mouth, we often accommodate this by chewing on the other side or choosing different foods.
At Oakwood Dental Practice in Botley, we saw a new patient recently who was aged in her 50s, had lost several back teeth and had a failing bridge. She hadn’t eaten a juicy steak for years and took so long chewing her food with her front teeth that her tea was cold by the time she had finished.
The psychological impact was causing her to avoid going out for meals with her friends and she felt so embarrassed by the state of her teeth that she covered her mouth when she spoke. Does this sound familiar to you?
Unhurried, calm dental care
Our aim is for our patients to have faith and confidence in their teeth, have their concerns and problems resolved and enjoy predictable results from their treatment. We want them to feel proud to show off their smiles – not hide them behind their hands or smile with their lips tightly shut.
