Causes of Sensitive Teeth We Do Not Always Think Of

Posted on 3/25/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Having sensitive teeth can be a real pain. Sensitive teeth can prevent you from eating the foods you love. They may even make eating some foods unbearable. Foods that are too hot or cold can make sensitive teeth hurt. Even foods that are sweet can make your teeth hurt. It may seem like you'll never be able to enjoy food again with sensitive teeth, but that's not true. There are many causes of sensitive teeth, and you may already know some. However, not everyone has sensitive teeth for the same reason. While most people have sensitive teeth due to enamel wear, some people may have exposed tooth roots. The pain from sensitive teeth comes from the nerves underneath your teeth. These nerves are very sensitive. When your tooth isn't protecting these nerves, certain foods can irritate them. Your teeth may become thin due to over brushing or eating too many acidic foods. It's possible you may have sensitive teeth because you have gum recession. Can You Cure Sensitive Teeth? If you have sensitive teeth, there's no need to worry. Most people can benefit from toothpaste and mouthwash formulated for sensitive teeth. These products help sensitive teeth by filling gaps in the enamel. Once you treat your enamel, you should be able to eat anything you want again. Sometimes, sensitivity products won't cure sensitive teeth. If you have sensitive teeth due to gum recession, gingivitis, or damaged teeth, these products won't help. In these circumstances, you'll need our help. We can treat your sensitive teeth using a variety of methods. The cause of your sensitive teeth will determine which treatment option is best for you. Besides being no fun, having sensitive teeth can damage your oral health. If you have lasting sensitivity, we're here to help you. Please contact our office for more information on how we can....

Can You Just Leave a Missing Tooth?

Posted on 3/15/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Losing a tooth can happen for a variety of reasons. You can lose a tooth due to an injury to the tooth that may happen in some type of accident or sports casualty. You can lose a tooth due to medical problems or treatments. If you have bone loss in your jaw, you can lose a tooth and just the aging process can cause you to lose a tooth. Harvard Medical School notes that by the time you turn 50 the average American adult has lost at least 12 permanent teeth. What you do about this missing tooth can depend on many factors, some of which are related to what tooth you have lost. Whether you have to replace the missing tooth in some fashion depends on you, but there are consequences to not replacing your tooth. What Can Happen if I Don't Replace My Tooth? The most obvious problem with not replacing the tooth is that you may have trouble chewing certain foods. This would depend on which tooth is lost, but molars do all the hard work of chewing. When you lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth tend to shift to make up for the missing tooth. This can cause your other teeth to be crooked or create new gaps in the existing teeth. Another problem that could arise is called super-eruption. This affects the tooth that opposes the one that is missing. In other words, if you lose a tooth on the top, the tooth it used to work with on the bottom will be affected. It could grow out from its normal position because the opposing tooth is no longer there to keep it in its place. When you are missing a tooth, it affects your bite or occlusion. Occlusion is the relationship that a tooth and its opposing partner have on each other. If your teeth don't meet properly, it affects the way you mash up your food which in turn affects your digestion. If you are missing a tooth come to see us. We can discuss your options and then decide how you want to proceed....

Should You Eat Just Before We See You For an Appointment?

Posted on 2/29/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Avoiding food before a dental appointment is one of the biggest dental myths. People constantly live under the delusion that we do not want you to eat before going for cleaning. This is a very false claim. We advise to eat some food before going to visit your dentist. A couple of problems can occur when you skip a meal due to a dental appointment, especially if you are under prescribed medication. When going for a dental appointment, eating beforehand can be a much better experience for everyone. First, eating food can cause your muscles to relax, making you less tense during the dental appointment. Second, if you skip a meal, the presence of our fingers in your mouth can stimulate the salivary glands. This will only complicate the dental appointment. What are Some Good Eating Options? To get sustainable and healthy teeth, we need to give them sustainable nutrition. Leafy vegetables like kales, spinach and collard greens have high concentrations of vitamin K, helping them strengthen your teeth. If you do not wish to engage in a solid meal, settling for green tea can be a good alternative. Apart from the ability to lower acid levels in the mouth that slow down acid erosion, green tea contains anti-inflammatory properties that prevent from gum from getting irritated. Green tea also has microbial properties that destroy bacteria causing bad breath. If you decide to focus on a calcium-based diet before your appointment, use the “milky way”. What Not to Eat Soda and sports drinks are some of the biggest enemies your teeth have to face every time they get exposed to them. The acidity present in these beverages is responsible for the eating away of the enamel and any completed filling. If you really need to have some sugary soda, although still not recommended, settle for root beer instead. It has a more basic pH value. If you still have issues going over what to eat, we are always glad to help our patients make the right and informed decision. Call us today to find out more about eating healthy before your dental appointment....
