Save Your Teeth (You're Gonna Need Them)

The Human tooth is incredibly strong, but every day it has to fend off a waves of attackers. See what it takes to keep your teeth as strong and beautiful as possible.

Tooth Anatomy

Tooth pain

Tooth pain? Don’t wait!! We see all too often people in pain. Today I will give you symptoms and some possible causes of tooth pain. In all cases it would be best to pop in and see our experienced team for us to take a look or possibly an x-ray as early detection can save you emotionally, physically and financially in the long run. The best time to treat dental problems is BEFORE they cause any pain. Both types of dental disease we commonly treat (cavities and gum disease) are PAINLESS in the early stages! That's why we stress the importance of regular preventative hygiene appointments. Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and liquids may indicate a dental problem that we can catch early. Such sensitivity may be due to gum recession, teeth grinding, a loose filling or an area of active decay.

Acid Reflux and Oral Health

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is commonly known as acid reflux. It’s a condition in which stomach contents leak backward into the esophagus. Acid reflux occurs when the ring of muscle where the esophagus meets the stomach isn’t working properly. It’s one of the fastest growing conditions for which patients seek medical attention and one that can ruin teeth.

In the early stages, acid reflux generally appears as heartburn or indigestion that becomes worse after eating or when lying down. The condition causes pain in the lower chest area. The pain of acid reflux can be so intense that people may think they’re having a heart attack.

Individuals with GERD may experience symptoms of asthma, wheezing and vomiting, along with a dry and persistent cough. Those with acid reflux may have chronic bad breath, soreness in the throat, laryngitis and tooth erosion.

USING THE CORRECT TOOTH BRUSHING TECHNIQUE

Using the correct brushing technique is one of the most important factors in maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

Techniques have changed over the years and most people are left feeling a bit unsure as to what exactly is the correct brushing procedure.

Plaque and decay can start within 24-48 hours if you're not using the right brushing technique....and if you are using the wrong brushing technique you could be experiencing faster development of cavities, gum disease and bleeding, or bad breath.
