Decay is caused by bacteria that collect on teeth and feed on the carbohydrates in our diet. The bacteria produce acid that wears away at the enamel on our teeth. If decay is left untreated, it can cause pain, infection and even tooth loss. Protect your teeth against decay by brushing at least twice a day, flossing daily, visiting your dentist regularly, and avoiding sugary foods.
Every 3 months or sooner if the bristles become worn and frayed. If you’ve been sick with a cold or other bacterial infection, it’s wise to replace your toothbrush once you’re better.
Dentistry is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions, disorders, and diseases of the teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw. Often considered necessary for complete oral health, dentistry can have an impact on the health of your entire body.
Cavities and gum disease are the most common problems. Both can be prevented with regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
Dry mouth is caused by a reduced flow of saliva. Saliva is needed to help control bacteria and wash away food debris. Certain medications, some diseases, smoking and chewing tobacco can cause dry mouth. If you suffer from dry mouth, call us and we can recommend ways to treat it.
A dentist is a specialist who works to diagnose, treat, and prevent oral health problems. Your dentist has completed at least eight years of schooling, and received either a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree, or a DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree. If your doctor is a pediatric dentist, this means that he or she specializes in caring for children from infancy through their teen years. A pediatric dentist has received the proper education and training needed to work with young kids. Other specializations include:
a) Endodontics (root canals)
b) Oral and maxillofacial (including pathology, radiology, and surgery)
c) Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics
d) Periodontics (gum disease)
e) Prosthodontics (implants)
Visiting the dentist regularly will not only help keep your teeth and mouth healthy, but will also help keep the rest of your body healthy. Dental care is important because it:
a) Helps prevent tooth decay
b) Protects against periodontal (gum) disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss
c) Prevents bad breath – brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist regularly will help reduce the amount of bacteria in d) your mouth that causes bad breath
e) Gives you a more attractive smile and increases your self-confidence
f) Helps keep teeth looking bright by preventing them from becoming stained by food, drinks, and tobacco
g) Strengthens your teeth so that you can enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles for the rest of your life!
