As dentists we hear these questions frequently: Should I remove my wisdom teeth? Will they erupt further? Will they make my front teeth crooked?

As one of the most common dental procedures in the UK, here at K Dental Studios we are fortunate to have the right experts to help and advise patients who are considering treatment.

What are Wisdom Teeth?
Most adults have 32 teeth, including 4 wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are usually the 3rd and final set of molars and they usually emerge between the ages of 18 and 21.
Not all people have developing wisdom teeth and for those who do develop them, only some will see them erupt fully in their mouths.
Nowadays, because of the change in our diet, eating mostly cooked food, tooth wear is less over time. This change means there is not always enough space for wisdom teeth to erupt.

K Dental Studios is a private practice located in the heart of London’s medical hub. There’s other practices in close proximity, but we’re proud to be able to offer something a little different to other practices. Now, this isn’t us being biased in any way. This is based on the special approach we take to providing high quality dental care to our community. Our approach is focused on educating the patient to help improve their oral health in the long term, as opposed to providing a solution but not the tools to maintain a good standard of oral health post-treatment/appointment.

When you visit the Studios, we’ll not only take the time to do a thorough assessment of your oral health, including checking for early signs of diseases, infections etc., but we’ll also ask about your lifestyle and get to know you as a person. This allows us to advise you on how best to look after your teeth and gums in a manner that can be easily incorporated into your individual daily routine. Continue reading

Another Reason To Quit Smoking
We all know the effects that smoking can have on our general health, but people do not often consider the effect it has on our teeth, gums and oral cavity as a whole. Smokers quite often have much less gum bleeding and redness than non-smokers giving the false impression that their gums are healthy which may not be the case. Here’s a few facts that highlight the impact it can have:

  •  Smokers have a 3- to 7-fold greater risk of developing Periodontitis
  • Chronic gum disease can lead to the loss of your teeth
  • Studies have shown that smokers have more calculus (tarter) than non smokers.
