Tooth decay occurs when the enamel and dentine of your teeth are affected by an acid attack. It happens after you’ve eaten or drunk sugary foods. The acid can cause a hole in the tooth over time. Dental decay is also called tooth decay.

How can tooth decay occur?

Tooth decay can be caused by plaque acids, which gradually dissolve the enamel and dentine. Corrosion can cause tooth decay and may require extraction or fillings.

How often should I have a dental checkup?

Although dental health is different from person to person, a rule of thumb for adults is to see a dentist at least once a year. You can maintain good oral health by having your teeth cleaned at least once a year.

Are dental X-rays safe?

Both dental and medical experts examine the safety of X-rays. Your dentist should only take a few X-rays as possible. Sometimes, X-rays are recommended by dentists to diagnose a specific problem. Modern technology has made digital X-rays safer and less radioactive than ever before.

After not visiting a dentist in a while, please expect to receive them during your first exam. These pictures are used to check the health of your teeth and gums. The dentist might ask for pictures every six months if you have gum disease. Depending on the plan of your dentist, regular check-ups are usually every two years.

Children have more X-rays than adults because their teeth are changing more quickly, and they can get cavities easily.

What is the purpose of X-rays taken by dentists?

The dentist cannot see many diseases of the teeth or surrounding tissues. An X-ray exam may reveal:

The dentist may find small areas of decay between the teeth or under existing restorations (fillings).

  • Infections in the bones
  • Periodontal (gum-) disease
  • Cysts or abscesses
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Some types of cancers

It is possible to save money, time and discomfort by diagnosing and treating problems early. X-rays can reveal damage to the oral structures that are not obvious during a regular examination.

You may be able to save your life if you have hidden cancer. Based on the condition of your development, your dentist will determine if you need X-rays. X-rays can be very beneficial. Your dentist should discuss any additional concerns or questions.

Dental Care

Do I need flossing?

It is essential to floss your teeth daily. It cleans food particles from under your gum line and between your teeth. If you don’t, plaque can harden into tartar. It forms wedges between teeth and gums and creates pockets. Gums can pull away over time, and teeth will become looser.

What can I do to fix my smile and teeth?

You can buy various whitening products in stores, or you can ask your dentist for take-home gels and tray options. However, they are not as strong as the procedures performed in a dental clinic.

Look for an ADA seal if you are interested in trying an over-the-counter whitener. If you have any dark stains or dental work, consult your dentist before buying. You could end up with broken teeth if you continue to use them.

How can I whiten my teeth the most effectively?

You can buy various whitening products in stores, or you can ask your dentist for take-home gels and tray options. However, they are not as strong as the procedures performed in a dental clinic.

Look for an ADA seal if you are interested in trying an over-the-counter whitener. If you have any dark stains or dental work, consult your dentist before buying. You could end up with broken teeth if you continue to use them.

What are sealants?

Sealants can protect against cavities that may form in tiny cracks and holes on the teeth outside. Dentists can paint Bonds on back teeth or molars on the chewing surfaces of molars for children aged 6-12. Sealants can also be applied to adult teeth to protect them that do not have fillings.

It’s painless and can be done in the office by dentists or dental assistants. They can last between 2 and 4 years.

What are cavity-fighting sealing sealants?

Sealants are a powerful weapon against tooth decay, according to the American Dental Association. Sealants are thin coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of premolars or molars. Dental sealants protect your teeth from decay-causing bacteria by acting as a barrier.

Sealants are effective for both children and adults, but they are most often used to treat children. Bonds cost half of what fillings are, but only a few school-aged children use sealants to protect their permanent teeth. Ask your dentist if adhesives are suitable for you and your children.

Is a rinse or mouthwash helpful?

You can use mouthwashes to protect your teeth, reduce sensitivity and give you fresh breath if you use them along with regular brushing and flossing, but not as a substitute for daily cleanings. Your dentist will recommend the correct type of mouthwash for you.

For dry or sensitive gums, some people require twice-daily rinses.
Children should not use mouthwash under 6 to avoid them getting swallowed.

Is it wrong for my teeth to eat sweets and ice?

Yes, sugary sweets and acidic foods like soda and candy can stick to teeth and cause cavities. Gum disease and oral cancer can be caused by chewing or smoking tobacco.

Although teeth can chew ice and open packages with ease, it is possible to break them or stress your jaws. Stress can cause cracks in your teeth by grinding or gritting on them.

Another bad habit is biting your nails. It can cause your jaw to move out of place and change the way your teeth fit together.

What is fluoride? And why is it so important for dental health?

Fluoride, a mineral found naturally in many foods and water, is known as fluoride. Fluoride can be found in brewed tea, skim milk, canned fish, cooked spinach and kale, as well as apples and cooked kale. Fluoride can be found in tap water, which is why you might get fluoride from the city water. Supplements are available in your drinking water are deficient in fluoride.

Individuals of all ages are at risk of developing dental decay if they have not been exposed to fluoride. Fluoride is essential for dental health as it protects tooth enamel from acid attacks by plaque bacteria.

Research has shown that fluoridated water is less harmful to children than water without fluoride. Fluoride can reverse the effects of early decay and prevent osteoporosis (a condition that causes bone loss). Discuss with your dentist and dental hygienist whether you are getting enough fluoride each day.

Do your teeth require fluoride?

Fluoride is a robust and preventative agent that helps to strengthen teeth and prevent decay. The American Academy of Pediatrics (ADA), the CDC, and the American Dental Association (ADA) all agree that children should brush with a fluoride toothpaste but not swallow it.

Fluoride can also be used to protect teeth and gums in adults.

Why should I visit the dentist often?

Many people don’t see their dentist regularly. They only visit a dentist when they have a dental problem. It is called “crisis treatment” and not “preventive therapy.” Although patients may think they are saving money using this method, the result is often much higher in dollars and time.

Many dental problems don’t present symptoms until the advanced stages. Tooth decay is one example. It’s common to hear the expression, “Nothing hurts…” “I don’t have any issues.”

Tooth decay can cause pain until it reaches the nerve of the teeth. A patient who has a large cavity may not feel anything. A dentist can detect a hole within 3-4 years. Root canal treatment can be avoided by early detection.

Why floss when I don't brush enough?

Flossing can reduce the number of bacteria in your mouth. These microscopic creatures feed on food particles that are left on your teeth. Plaque can be removed by flossing. Brushing your teeth can help get rid of some of these bacteria. Flossing eliminates bacteria that your toothbrush cannot reach. It is the bacteria that live in the spaces between your teeth. Plaque can build up between your teeth if you don’t floss. The plaque eventually hardens for the tartar. However, brushing can remove plaque, and only a dentist can remove tartar.

Ask your dentist for help in flossing. Both of you will notice the difference when you go for your next cleaning.

How can I get my children to brush their teeth?

Make it enjoyable! Your children will be excited if you brush your teeth enthusiastically. Children will want to emulate their parents’ habits. Children will emulate your good habits and brush their teeth if they see you doing it. Ask your dentist for creative ways to encourage children to brush their teeth.

Start teaching your children how to brush their teeth early by taking them to the dentist. Every child should see the dentist by the time they turn one or six months after their eruption of the first tooth.

What can I do to prevent cavities?

Spend at least two to three minutes brushing teeth. It takes this long to remove bacteria that can cause tooth enamel loss. Don’t brush too hard. You only need to use very gentle pressure to remove plaque and bacteria. Floss at the very least once per day. Flossing alone is the best way to remove bacteria between your teeth.

Be careful what sugar you eat. We can find sugar in candy, fruit, crackers, and chips. These are the foods your bacteria love the most. Peanut butter and raisins can stick to your teeth. These foods can lead to bacteria in your teeth. Reduce the number of sweets consumed during the day and brush your teeth afterward.

After a meal, brush your teeth with water. After a meal, you can try sugarless gum. Chewing sugarless gum after a meal can help regulate your saliva flow, which acts as a natural plaque-fighter substance. Don’t forget to schedule regular dental appointments. An excellent dental habit will lead to a non-cavity visit.

What are the risks of oral piercings?

American Dental Association recognizes that piercings are a popular form of self-expression. Mainly, It includes those in the mouth. Therefore, many potential issues can result from piercings. A piercing can cause pain, swelling, and infection.

Excessive bleeding can also be caused by tongue piercing. Talk to your dentist before you consider putting a piercing in your mouth. Consult your dentist immediately if you have problems with piercings.

Morning breath: What is the cause?

Your saliva production decreases when you’re asleep. Morning breath is a common symptom of morning breath, as saliva is the mouth’s natural mouthwash. The bacteria found in your teeth and on your tongue’s taste buds produce sulfur compounds. These sulfur compounds are what give your breath a bad smell. Your saliva is a natural cleanser that helps remove bacteria and food particles from your desk. Your saliva can also dissolve foul-smelling sulfur compounds.

A persistent, long-lasting mouth odor could indicate a more severe condition. If you are concerned, consult your dentist.

What can I do for sensitive teeth?

Sensitivity toothpaste that contains potassium nitrate or strontium chloride is very effective for treating sensitive teeth. You may notice a decrease in sensitivity after a few weeks. Tooth sensitivity can be increased by high-alcohol foods like grapefruits, lemons, oranges, and soda.

You should consult your dentist if you cannot get relief from brushing your teeth gently and using desensitizing toothpaste. Unique compounds can be applied to the roots of your teeth in-office to reduce or eliminate the sensitivity. To reduce tooth sensitivity, The dentist may also recommend high-fluoride-containing home care products.

Is whitening toothpaste effective?

Many commercial whitening toothpaste can whiten your teeth. These toothpaste remove surface stains by using mild abrasives. Some whitening toothpaste, however, does not change the intrinsic color of your teeth like professional whitening. Toothpaste that works well to remove stains can also cause damage to tooth enamel. These toothpaste contain harsh abrasives. Repeated use of harsh abrasives can cause enamel to crack and lead to tooth sensitivity. Consult your dentist before you try a whitening toothpaste.

Canker sores: What are the causes?

It is not known what causes canker sores. Generally, many factors could be responsible for canker sores. Likewise, These include genetics, allergies, and stress. Canker sores can develop from trauma to the inside of your mouth. Usually, Canker sores can be caused by poorly fitting dentures, braces, tooth trauma, brushing too hard, or biting your cheek.

Other foods could also play a role. Canker sores can be triggered by acidic or citrus fruits and vegetables. Hard candies, chips, pretzels, and chips can cause damage to the soft tissues of the mouth.

For canker sores, rinse your mouth with antimicrobial toothpaste or warm water and salt. There are also over-the-counter treatments. Mountain Dental can help if the canker sore persists for more than two weeks.

Is smoking tobacco harmful?

Although smokeless tobacco is not harmful, it can still be dangerous. These are just a few of the possible dangers:

  1. A sore that doesn’t heal
  2. A white or lumpy patch
  3. A persistent sore throat
  4. Difficulty chewing
  5. Restricted movement in the jaw or tongue
  6. The feeling of something in your throat

Pain is not always an early sign of a problem. Tobacco users should visit their dentist regularly.

Why are my teeth getting darker?

Many factors can cause your naturally white smile to fade. Teeth can be stained by certain foods and drinks, as well as tobacco. These substances continue to stain our teeth, causing our white smiles to fade. Because they alter the temperature of your teeth, hot coffee and tea can be particularly dangerous to your smile.

The temperature changes – hot or cold cycling – cause the teeth to expand or contract, allowing stains into the teeth. A great way to create a beautiful smile is to cut down on the amount of coffee and tea you drink. Your white smile can also be affected by slightly acidic foods. These foods can open the pores of tooth enamel, allowing stains to get into the tooth more easily.

You can ask your dentist for more information on maintaining a white smile.
