Tooth sensitivity, bad breath, toothaches, mouth sores, decay, and gum disease signal problems in your mouth.
Having dental exams ensures that any prevailing oral conditions like cavities and gum disease are spotted early on and treated in advance before progressing to severe stages. Also oral cancer screening can lead to early detection.
Yes, always see a dentist, even when everything feels fine. Routine checks and exams are prudent since they aid in catching issues that you may not see. There may be problems with your teeth or gums that you cannot see or are masking themselves.
Look at the dentist's credentials, including qualifications and certifications. See what they specialize in and check the range of services they provide. Also, ask who they see regularly. The dentist should be in the network of insurance you have.
Get your child to the dentist by their first birthday or within six months after the first tooth comes in.
Odor-producing bacteria growing in the mouth can cause bad breath. If you fail to brush and floss routinely, bacterial accumulation may occur on the leftovers in the mouth. These bacteria release sulfur compounds, making your breath smell.
Cavities or tooth decay arise from the buildup of bacteria within the mouth. Frequent snacking and sipping sugary drinks also cause cavities. Not cleaning the teeth adequately is another culprit for caries or cavities.
Yes, electric toothbrushes are more effective compared to manual brushes. They also clean faster. The oscillating head can cover a large area, making the brushing activity easier and more efficient.
Your gums bleed because plaque has accumulated within the gum line. It houses harmful bacteria that invade the soft tissue surrounding the teeth, causing irritation and inflammation, hence leading to bleeding. This condition is called gingivitis, which can transform into periodontitis. Your gums could also bleed because of brushing too hard.
Try to chew sugar-free gum to stimulate saliva flow. Stop smoking or chewing tobacco and sip water regularly. Avoid using mouthwashes that have alcohol since they cause dryness of the mouth. Limit your caffeine intake; caffeine makes the mouth drier.
During a teeth cleaning session, a dentist or Hygienist uses dental instruments known as scalers, picks, or curettes. Scalers and curettes help remove tartar by scraping it off the teeth. A dentist then uses a soft rubber cup to polish the tooth. A prophylaxis toothpaste that feels abrasive or gritty is put in the cup.
Fluoride toothpaste is considered the best option for your kids to use. It is safe for kids from the time their first tooth comes in. Get alcohol-free, paraben-free, dye-free, SLS-free, and sugar-free toothpaste. Remember, your kids love flavored toothpaste.
