Oral Benefits of Vitamin D From the Sun
Posted on 1/25/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
One of the most important vitamins that your body needs, Vitamin D, can also be one of the most difficult vitamins. Unlike most vitamins, you don't get Vitamin D from eating specific foods. Instead, your body creates it after being exposed to the sun. If you're not out in the sun enough, you can be low on Vitamin D. This vitamin does many different things for the body, including providing it with a number of oral benefits. It Makes Your Teeth Stronger Vitamin D does a lot for your bones and your teeth. It promotes healthy growth and helps keep them strong. The vitamin does this by helping the body absorb calcium. Calcium and Vitamin D together help improve the strength and durability of your teeth, protecting them from cavities and helping keep them firmly rooted in your mouth. Calcium also helps protect your mouth from gum disease. If you have low levels of Vitamin D and calcium, it's easy for bacteria to hit both your teeth with cavities and your gums with gum disease. This greatly weakened your oral health and can lead to tooth loss. It Improves Healing If you have a Vitamin D deficiency, you may notice that your injuries don't heal up as quickly. This includes any injuries in your mouth. Your gums aren't going to recover from gingivitis as quickly as they should, even if you start brushing and flossing regularly. Any oral surgery may also take a little longer to heal. If you go too long without the correct Vitamin D levels, it will lower your body's defenses even more. You may start to get more oral infections, and gingivitis may progress to a more advanced state. Are you getting enough Vitamin D? If you're concerned that you're not, give us a call and we can look for signs of deficiency....

How Managing Stress Keeps Your Jaw from Clenching
Posted on 1/15/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Clenching and grinding our teeth is something that happens to everyone from time to time. When we are stressed, most people will tend to grind their teeth or clench their jaws a whole lot. For some people, it's something they do actively, but for others, it is a passive thing that they can also do in their sleep without any knowledge that they are doing so. Although a couple of times cannot bring issues onto the teeth, regular clenching and grinding bring about a condition called bruxism, which can do a lot of damage if left unchecked. Symptoms of Bruxism Bruxism is a disorder that affects a lot of people in the United States. When you have this disorder, some of the most common symptoms include headaches when you wake up, facial pain, earaches, stiffness and pain in thetemporomandibular joint (TMJ), worn down teeth, and broken fillings or teeth. Since the most significant cause of bruxism is stress, it then figures that managing your levels of stress can significantly help with treating this disorder. This means that you have to sit down and analyze your life. Identify the cause of the stress and devise a solution to make things alright. If you have been stressed for a while, consider some of the tactics developed to deal with stress so that you can not only have a great night's rest but also make sure that your jaw stays as healthy as possible. This means stress management strategies must be employed. As such, you should ensure that you have a positive attitude, you accept the truth about circumstances you cannot control, meditate quite frequently, eating a balanced diet and also knowing when to let go of issues. When you do this, you are effectively managing your stress. In case you wake up and feel the symptoms of bruxism, make sure that you make an appointment with us as soon as possible. Our dentists will look at your teeth and perform some tests to determine the root cause of the issues. From there, we can effectively work on eliminating the symptoms without any problems to follow....

Signs You Need a Nighttime Mouth Guard
Posted on 12/25/2019 by Sean Saghatchi
Do you wake up with a sore jaw or even have headaches in combination with it? There are a variety of signs that you could benefit from a nighttime mouth guard. You might not even be aware of how much you could benefit from one. Many people are shocked to find out some of the pains and ailments they were bothered by were resolved by a custom mouth guard. Symptoms a Mouth Guard May Relieve Headaches. If you start your morning after a good night's rest with a headache. The pain you are feeling could be the aftereffects of clenching your jaw or grinding during the night. If you are noticing that you have chipped or pieces of your teeth that have broken off. It can be a sign of bruxism. The term for frequent teeth grinding. If you have been diagnosed with TMJ disorder (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder). Sleeping while using a mouth guard will reduce your grinding, protect teeth, and minimize the pain associated with it. If you notice flat patches on your molars, it's a sign you are clenching and grinding during the night. Types of Nighttime Mouth Guards “Soft” night guards are the most commonly used forms of a nighttime mouth guard. They contain soft material inside and are comfortable, affordable, and easy to adapt to sleeping with. However, they don't last very long. Their warranties are usually short, around six months. “Dual Laminate” night guards are for medium to severe night grinding. They handle hard clenches and tough grinding. They are durable and also have long warranty periods. They can be harder to adjust wearing due to their thickness. “Hard” night guards are acrylic and rigid. They handle extreme bruxism, are durable, and prevent tooth shifting. They are also custom made from a mold of your teeth at our office. There are mouth guards you can purchase over the counter that are “boil and bite.” You soften with boiling and bite to mold. They are effective, but the most comfortable fit will be a custom fit guard from our office. If you are dealing with any of the signs above, give us a call or ask us about a nighttime guard at your next visit.
