teeth health smileNumerous parents can attest to pinning down the toddler in an attempt to have them brush their teeth. It is a good thing to ensure that oral healthcare results in healthy baby teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • Even though they eventually fall off, baby teeth are important for function and in guiding the permanent teeth into their positions.
  • Your children should brush with a proper toothbrush as soon as the first tooth appears to prevent oral health problems.
  • Tooth brushing time should be made fun to ensure that baby complies with brushing their teeth at least twice every day. Kid toothpaste that contains fluoride should be used for brushing.

While you should brush twice a day, doing it before bed is most important, because while your tot is lying (generally) still, bacteria have a chance to grow undisturbed. And any sugar left in the mouth, from milk or food, gives bacteria an even better environment in which to grow.

smile health teethThe intense pain you feel from your teeth could be caused by a number of factors. Remember, teeth are made up of living tissue called dentin.

Key takeaways:

  • Tooth pain is in most cases caused by cavities, which are holes forming on the enamel layer of teeth.
  • The exposed dentin will register pain upon pressure or contact with hot and cold substances. Bacteria will enter through cavities, eventually causing inflammation and infection in the cavity.
  • Gum disease caused by bacteria is yet another cause of tooth pain. Receding gums will expose the roots of teeth causing severe pain.

Nerves in the cavity will scream with every sip of hot coffee, every bite of cold ice cream, and will often require a root canal, which scoops out the inflamed pulp and replaces it with a rubbery material, according to the American Association of Endodontics (AAE).

lumineers  teeth smileHave you ever wished your teeth looked better? Is there a chipped tooth that embarrasses you?  A discoloured tooth that bothers you? A tooth gap you wish you didn’t have? Crooked or misshapen or small teeth? If any of these ring true, you owe it to yourself to investigate Lumineers.

Key takeaways:

  • Lumineers are a version of veneers. Lumineers have actually been around for 30 years, so they are a tried-and-true solution today.
  • Lumineers are digitally designed. They are ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens).
  • Lumineers can be applied to your teeth without drilling, without shots, without any pain.

Lumineers can give you a natural looking smile. That’s why Lumineers are so popular. And Lumineers are even reversible, as your natural teeth are not permanently affected. So you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.

teeth health smileSugar intake is a big problem today and is linked to children’s dental problems. A sugar tax would help control the problem and protect children’s teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • The introduction of a sugar tax on soft drinks would have clear benefits to the oral health of children between 11 and 18 years old.
  • Tighter regulation around price, availability and marketing of sports drinks to children will safeguard their general and dental health.
  • Oral health should be tackled in the same breath as overall health since it affects children’s overall well-being, confidence, mental health and life chances.

The most important message dentists can give parents is to remember that it is not just the amount of sugar children eat or drink that causes tooth decay, but how often they have sugary foods and drinks.

dental toothache sinusA runny nose due to sinus congestion could be causing toothaches. Sinus congestion affects the teeth on the upper jaw that is near the sinus cavity.

Key takeaways:

·        Inflamed sinuses push or press against the roots of the upper teeth in close proximity to the sinus cavity.

·        Constant pressure on the roots of the teeth will lead to severe pain similar to that of a cavity or a severe toothache.

·        Tooth pain caused by sinus congestion can be diagnosed by a dentist and treated through the use of antibiotics, decongestants, antihistamines and routine nasal washes.

A sinus infection left untreated can lead to more severe conditions such as an eye infection, brain infection and bone infection, according to the Mayo Clinic. Seek dental advice before treating tooth pain or concluding it is the result of nasal congestion.

Key takeaways:

·    Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, and can make dentures secure so they don’t slip.

  • The implant is usually made of titanium and will last a lifetime.

·         The screw-like parts are placed into the jaw bone and are meant to imitate the root of the tooth. The crown is colour-matched to your natural teeth.

·         Most patients report that they were much more comfortable after the procedure than they had anticipated.

The surgery is done in the dental office with local anesthesia but can also be done with I.V.

 teeth health smileBrush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste to ensure that teeth remain healthy. A healthy diet rich in calcium is also important for healthy teeth. Let’s look at a few myths, and the truth.

Key takeaways:

  • Baby teeth do not matter: That’s a myth. Decay of baby teeth may harm the permanent teeth that appear in later life.
  • Mouthwash instead of brushing: That’s a myth. Only brushing is capable of getting rid of plaque that builds up on the teeth.
  • Older people need not brush teeth: That’s a myth. Brushing is important across all ages. Older people can enjoy better quality life by regularly brushing teeth.

We recommend brushing the gums, tongue and palate with a soft-bristled brush. Dentures should be cleaned daily with a strong but soft bristled brush to remove food deposits and plaque.
