Adults Need Dental Sealants Nearly As Much As Kids Do

Posted on 7/23/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Dental sealants are a thin layer of protective plastic covering that is etched onto the teeth to guard against cavities and other dental issues. Coupled with regular oral practices like brushing and flossing, dental sealants give you all you need to protect your teeth against cavities and other similar oral problems. They protect your enamel, especially those of the molars and premolars from wear and tear resulting from chewing, hard brushing, and acidic foods. They come in color tones that blend perfectly with the color of your teeth, shielding them while remaining inconspicuous.  It's important to stress, however, that no matter the quality of the teeth sealants, they must always be paired with good dental hygiene for adequate protection.  Read on to find out how teeth can be as beneficial to adults as it can be for kids. The Science Behind Dental Sealants The Center for Disease Control has been a strong advocate for the use of teeth sealants among adults. It recently published a report showing that dental sealants can forestall 80% of cavities within two years of their lifespan, and up to 50% for the rest of their lifespan. According to the report, a tooth sealant can remain adequately effective for as long as nine years on average.  Dental sealants can, therefore, serve as a protective mechanism against cavities and as a general shock absorber for teeth in kids as well as in adults.  Generally, teeth sealants are recommended for adults who're more vulnerable to dental problems like fissures, caries, and deep groves. However, teeth sealants are usually recommended as a preventive rather than a restorative measure. So, anyone who needs to shore up their enamel against the pressures and grindings from everyday use can opt for teeth sealants.  Still not sure if dental sealants are an ideal dental fixture for you? Call our office today to get industry-best dental recommendations from our seasoned dentists....

How to Minimize Berry Stains on Your Teeth

Posted on 7/7/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
When it comes to eating foods in the dental world, you've likely heard countless times that you should avoid eating sweets often. This is due to the bacteria that cause cavities feeding off of the sugar stuck to your teeth. But today we are talking about another type of sweet food that is healthy for you, but still has its own negative effect on teeth. Today, we are talking about berries, nature's candy. Berries are sweet, delicious, and perfect for summertime snacking. But unfortunately, they are known to stain your teeth, and if you are trying to keep a set of bright white teeth then they can be the bane of your existence. Fortunately, we have tips for you to minimize the staining that berries cause. Brush Using High-Quality Whitening Toothpaste If you are looking to start removing berry stains from your teeth. A good, safe option is to pick up toothpaste made for removing stains from your teeth. The major toothpaste brands will carry a version of toothpaste like this. If you haven't already, you can swap to these as your daily toothpaste as long as the toothpaste is intended to be for daily usage Rinse With Whitening Mouthwash After Eating A Large Number Of Berries Like toothpaste, there are also whitening mouthwash products on the market. Berries are not going to stain your teeth after eating a few, but if you really love your sweet juicy treats and eat them constantly in large numbers, you may end up with colored teeth. To minimize this, rinse using a reputable whitening mouthwash after eating. Do You Need Your Teeth Whitened Quickly? If you are looking to have your teeth whitened with haste, we can book you an appointment. Just give our office a call. Your berry binges will seem like they never even happened!...

Why You Need to Cover an Exposed Root

Posted on 6/22/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Exposed roots are usually not a common problem, but when they happen, you are going to know it is happening. When the gums start to recede, if you develop an abscess, have gum disease, or wind up with any other issue, then you need to think about covering any tooth root that has become exposed. This is uncomfortable for everyone, but it is a problem that we can address and provide help with. You shouldn't have to deal with exposed roots in your mouth. Speak with us for help. Covering Exposed Roots in the Mouth Sensitivity is very common in those that have exposed roots. Discomfort when you eat or drink anything hot or cold is also common. It is important to think about what we can do to help you cover up these roots so you can comfortably eat and drink. Getting grafts can be used to fix the issue. They cover the area your natural gums once covered, and they heal in place, essentially replacing the gum tissue you have lost. This helps prevent discomfort, plus it also helps you feel more confident when you smile. Speak with us today regarding any and all dental issues you are faced with. When you are battling exposed roots or other issues, it can become a problem if you do not get them taken care of. This is because you don't want to live with the discomfort or have the issues become worse. When your roots are exposed, you are also more vulnerable to an infection in the gum tissue you have left, and in the root of the tooth. Not only would this be more painful, but it could also cost you your tooth. Schedule an appointment, so we can take a look and figure out what procedures will help....
