According to Public Health England, nearly 1 in 4 five year olds in England have tooth decay, the majority of which is untreated. Research found that an average of three days of school per child are missed due to dental problems. This is why it is so important to take care of our children’s dental health. Even though children lose their first set of teeth as they get older, it is still important to look after these milk teeth and set in place good habits when it comes to oral health, including regular visits to the dentist. At Victoria Road dental practice in Harrow, we know it can be hard to get children to look after their teeth and especially hard bringing them to the dentist, which is why we endeavour to take special care of all of our young patients, helping to make them feel at ease during their appointment. Many of our patients have brought nervous or scared children to one of our dentists for a checkup and have left with a healthy, happy child who is no longer afraid. Making sure your child has regular check ups with a dentist can help ensure they will not be too afraid to go as adults.

Treatment for Missing Teeth
If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, you might feel self conscious and unable to smile freely. Additionally, loss of teeth in your mouth can cause a sagging of the muscles around your mouth, giving your face a sunken appearance and making you look much older. Not only this, but missing teeth can also affect eating and talking, and result in the remaining teeth growing at an irregular angle into the gap. Misaligned teeth can then be more at risk of damage and decay.
Dentures are often a cost effective option to restore your mouth to full working condition, allowing you the confidence to smile again, with specially designed dentures that fit your mouth comfortably and appropriately match your natural teeth. Dentures fit over your gums to replace missing teeth, supporting lips and teeth. They are removable, to allow them to be cleaned regularly and are made specifically to fit your mouth. While you may have heard from others that dentures can be uncomfortable, thanks to new developments in fitting and materials used, dentures are much comfier to wear these days, allowing you to carry on with your life uninhibited.
If you have dentures that have become damaged at the Victoria Road dentist in Harrow, we can carry out quick and effective denture repairs. Find out more by calling us on 01895 636 121.
For an effective, alternative and more permanent treatment for missing teeth, dental implants can be a viable solution. While more expensive than dentures, dental implants are permanent, meaning you don’t have to worry about removing and cleaning them as dental implants are permanently and securely fitted into your mouth. It is almost entirely impossible to tell if a person has had a dental implant as they are so realistic and are designed to match perfectly to your remaining teeth. They feel just like the real thing inside your mouth. Having a dental implant fitted can also help prevent bone loss in your mouth, which can be a risk if you have lost a tooth. To determine whether you are suitable to have a dental implant, your dentist will undertake a full examination beforehand, ensuring you have adequate oral health and bone mass to support an implant.
At the Victoria Road Dental Clinic in Harrow, we only use premium dental implants, ensuring the best quality treatment for our patients. Our expert team have many years of experienced replacing missing teeth with natural looking and feeling dental implants, leaving patients happy and confident to smile again.

Over time, the white enamel of our teeth can get worn away, or stained by certain foods or beverages we consume regularly or unhealthy habits like smoking, leaving our teeth with a brown or yellowish tinge. If you want healthier looking teeth, teeth whitening might be the solution. Teeth whitening is safe and effective, helping to brighten your smile and leave your teeth looking healthy. Our teeth whitening treatments are high quality and effective, offering both an at-home treatment that is tailored to you, or treatment in practice.
