November is Mouth Cancer Action Month, so naturally as dental professionals we feel it is our duty to shed some light on this disease. Mouth cancer is the sixth most common cancer in the world and accounts for around 2% of the cancers diagnosed in the UK. Detecting mouth cancer early is vital to maintaining the already impressive survival odds of 9 out of 10. However, we’re not satisfied with these results until everyone is beating mouth cancer. Knowing the signs of mouth cancer is critical to its detection, so this month we’re going to spotlight the symptoms so that you may stay informed and safe. Here’s the exact changes in your mouth that you should be looking out for.
To state the obvious: braces straighten your teeth, improve your jaw alignment, and better your dental health. We’re dentists, we know all about braces and the ins and outs of treatment.

Here’s how to get the most of your braces.
So, you’ve had your teeth whitened, and you’re grinning loud and proud. Brighter and whiter teeth help you appear younger, happier, and healthier, so it’s definitely imperative that you look after your teeth whitening results. Not only will this help you keep them in the best condition, but it ensures the best value for money for you as well! Here’s how to maintain your teeth whitening results after your treatment.
If you think this blog post will tell you that invisible braces will straighten your teeth, you’re only partially right. Yes, we admit, they do straighten your smile.

Nobody is naturally blessed with a Hollywood smile, because even the celebrities who boast them didn’t come across them by grace of good genetics. It’s just natural and simple biology, our teeth were made for function and form and that’s what they do. Stars like Demi Moore and Tom Cruise received cosmetic dental treatment, for example, with Moore even wearing a denture for some time due to losing her front teeth. Cosmetic dentistry provides the results that A-Listers want us to think they were born and blessed with, so sometimes we need a little helping hand from the professionals to give us the smile we really want. Let’s explore how veneers work and how they improve a smile.
For children, a loose tooth is so exciting! Pop it under the pillow, excitedly try to stay up to watch for the beat of little fairy wings, give in to sleep and wake up the next morning 50p or £1 richer. What’s not to love about loose teeth when they hail the coming of the tooth fairy? This excitement ebbs considerably, however, when you’re slightly older and begin to experience loose adult teeth. In fact, we don’t hesitate to guess that it’s not very exciting at all, and its actually fairly nerve-wracking. With no tooth sheltering behind this adult counterpart ready to take its place, a loose tooth could spell serious consequences for your smile. Let’s explore together the causes of loose adult teeth and how to treat them. Of course we offer tooth replacement like dental implants, but we’d far prefer to save your natural teeth than replace them before it’s too late!

They stretch back further than you’d ever thought and have since lead to the stable titanium-rooted treatment you receive from us today.

We can restore form, function, and feel, but what were some of the earliest dental implants like?
Headaches are a nuisance, but when one comes from nowhere or first thing in the morning it’s even more of a problem. Where has this headache come from, and how can I make it go away? You’re not ill, dehydrated, or particularly partied-out, so what has caused this? There are plenty of random and mostly inconsequential aches and pains we experience, but your teeth could be causing these. At Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, we’d like to share with you our knowledge of dentistry and how your headaches could be prevented.

There are lots of questions circling this popular aesthetic treatment, especially if you’re not one hundred percent familiar with them. Here at Lion Dental Centre in Stourbridge, we want to make sure all of our patients are fully informed on the treatments they are considering. Let us enlighten you on everything there is to know about dermal fillers!
Dental implants are the most effective solution to missing teeth in modern dentistry. They restore feel, function, and formality to your mouth because they look, work, and feel like real teeth. We understand that dental implants can signify quite the investment in both time and money to some patients, but they’re much more accessible than you may think. For example, do you know how dental implants are placed? Do you assume the process is a series of big, scary surgeries?
