In the lead up to summer, many of us take extra care of our diet, spending habits, and exercise regime all in aid of that big summer holiday. Whether you’re boarding a plane to a warmer climate, or having a stay-cation somewhere in the UK, our holidays are a time for relaxing, having fun and making memories with loved ones. Although its great to finally take a well-deserved break from normal life, it’s important to uphold your dental hygiene routine to protect your oral health. At Lion Dental Centre we are passionate about providing our patients with reliable, professional advice so that they can maintain a fantastic smile wherever they may be.
What Age Group Is Invisalign For?
Traditionally, orthodontic treatment has been associated with teenagers; however dental misalignment effects a large proportion of adults. 66% of adult patients are 26-40yrs, and an additional 22% are 41-55.

Dental implants are a trusted solution to tooth loss, with the treatment in practice for over 40 years. Each implant at Lion Dental Centre has a screw foundation, produced from titanium, that connects to the jaw bone to substitute the root of the natural tooth. As implants are connected to the patient’s jaw, they provide a durable and reliable foundation for artificial teeth. Despite having elements of titanium, our dental implants are carefully designed to look natural and undetectable.

Dental phobia is real and it’s stopping a large percentage of the British population from visiting the dentist. Did you know that 25% of Brits confess to not having seen a dentist in the last two years, but what sort of impact can this have on your oral and general health?
When we brush our teeth, we are effectively removing food deposits that we didn’t swallow from our last meal. If food deposits are not effectively removed by your toothbrush, they can lead to tooth decay; which may need a filling in the short term, and may even lead to tooth loss in the long term.
As adult braces become more discreet, their usage increases and here in Stourbridge, there are plenty of adult braces options.
