Professional Cleaning, and Its Importance:

By John Baker

 

Of course flossing, using mouthwash, and fluoride are great ways to keep your teeth clean and free of plaque. However, new breakthrough research shows, that it is not simply enough to prevent dental complications. Why not, you ask? The materials used during a professional dental cleaning from Cayuga County Dentists remove even the toughest plaque and tooth stains, in even the most hard to reach places.

Often when people floss themselves, they miss some of the most important, albiet hard to reach spots and are left with plaque build up on their teeth, in between their teeth or other harmful places. The residing plaque hardens and becomes something us Cayuga County dentists like to call calculus. And we're not referring to the most dreaded course in high school! Calculus, or hardened plaque, can only be treated by professional dental cleanings, available in $citfull. If you do not get your teeth professionally cleaned, then that hardened layer of calcified calculus will ultimately prevent toothbrush bristles, dental floss and even fluoride from doing their job, forcing you to lose hundreds of dollars a year buying products that can't clean your teeth the same way a professional cleaning can, when done by an accredited Cayuga County Dentist. Only using mouthwash and floss when you have calculus build up does not treat the root cause of the problem, and does not properly clean the area underneath. The calculus will also slowly and eventually spread and begin to irritate your soft gum tissue, which many dentists advise is the wrong time to then seek treatment.

If you start with professional teeth cleaning, however, you will give your teeth a clean pallet and remove calculus. Any ‘at home’ efforts to clean your teeth will be effective only after a professional cleaning by a Cayuga County Dentist.

Why Taking Medication Can Cause Cavities

By John Baker

Many medications, such as anti-depressants and even Ibuprofen, can cause dry mouth. Dry mouth, or lack of saliva, increases risk of cavities. Why? Salivary flow forms as a natural inhibiter of plaque and thus decreases risk of cavities.

Therefore, if you are on medication, it is imperative that you take extra measures to take care of your teeth. Flossing and brushing is important, and using mouthwash is essential. The mouthwash serves as a replacement for saliva, and will decrease chances of cavities.

Additionally, to increase oral care, it is important to use a soft-bristled toothbrush. If the bristles are bent then your teeth will not be cleaned properly. It is also important to brush properly, and clean the outside surfaces of your teeth. Positioning your toothbrush at a 45 degree angle, and brushing in a circularly motion, can reduce cavities by as much as 70 percent.

Flossing properly is also essential for saliva flow, and cavity prevention. How do you floss properly? Insert floss between teeth and move your hands in a back and forth motion. Do this gently, for if you floss to hard you may tear gums and actually increase chance of gum infection.

Taking dental precautions undoubtedly prevents cavities. Adding dental rituals, such as flossing and using fluoride, just takes up five minutes of your time and can prevent you from some of the most serious dental related diseases. Also, you should schedule a regular appointment with a Cayuga County Dentist, who can further instruct you on deep cleaning techniques for superb dental health and oral hygeine, or to provide services such as cleanings, root canals, crowns or caps.

How to Avoid Gum Infection

By John Baker

Gum infections can lead to very major and dangerous issues if not treated correctly and promptly. Unfortunately, gum infections are sometimes difficult to detect, which ultimately hinders prevention. If not cared for in the correct manner, your gums can become sincerely infected.

How does infection occur? Is brushing teeth enough to hinder infection or disease in the gums? Infection occurs when germs or bacteria are left in the mouth, in crevices where they grow and flourish. These bacteria grow and can result in disease in the gums if not cared for within the proper amount of time. Bacteria can grow in the space between your gums and teeth, better known as the sulcus, and can multiply at an alarmingly rapid rate. If the bacteria is not dealt with, infections in the mouth can occur and grow, causing further complications.

Unfortunately, over 50% of Americans have gingivitis, a form of gum infection. About 15% of American’s have a more serious form of gum disease, called periodontitis. Periodontitis impacts the sulcus, and weakens that attachment of your teeth and gums.

How does one prevent either infection? By visiting your local $citfull dentist for a check up on a consistant basis. We recommend a visit to the dentist once every six months in order to avoid disease, and treat oral complications head on. Signs of gum infection include swollen, tender, and bleeding gums. Some people endure pus coming from their gums, and some even experience bad breath.

Below are some effective methods to treat gum disease:

Root Planning: This is a deep cleaning treatment that thoroughly cleans gums and teeth.

Antibiotics: Antibiotics exist that effectively rid you of gum infection. Some come in injection form, and others in pills.

Surgery: If none of the above methods work effectively, your Cayuga County dentist may recommend that you endure surgery.

The best way to avoid gum infection is to take steps to prevent it from occurring. Be sure to brush, floss, and use mouthwash on a daily basis. Be sure that food particles, that ultimately grow to become bacteria, are not left in your mouth.

We recommend taking fluoride tablets to strengthen teeth, and use toothpaste that is approved by the dental association. It is also imperative to switch your toothbrush, and make sure you dry it prior to putting it away. Once oral hygiene becomes a habit, oral complications like gum disease are not even an issue.

Why Bad Dental Genes Just Don't Matter

By John Baker

It has been long believed that an individuals’ dental genetic makeup plays an imperative role for one’s dental health. Recent studies, however, prove otherwise and lead to the finding that environmental factors are far more important for the mouth’s microbial set up.

Genome Research, a revered dental health magazine, published a study tackling what factors control the different microorganisms in the mouth. Investigators discovered that environment plays a major role on determining microbiota. In this study, the researchers examined microbial DNA in saliva samples of groups of twins, and compared it to the bacteria in the individuals. This way, the researchers were able to differentiate between the genetics of the twins, and the impact the environment has on their dental health, giving us crucial insight.

When the salivary microbiomes of identical twins were compared to that of fraternal twins, scientists found that genetics does not play an important role.
As the twins moved apart from each other, their microbiota became less similar.

Environmental factors of our dental health have never been more relevant. A dentists’ role of cleaning, maintaining, and preventing damage to our teeth is heightened as a result to these findings.

What is environmental impact? Environmental impact is how our surroundings and daily habits affect our dental health. Flossing, using mouthwash, and fluoride intake are all effective measures that work with the environment to yield better dental health. Other factors, such as regular cleanings and visits to the dentist can also prevent Dental diseases and have been proven to have a positive affect on dental health. Ultimately, the only thing that ultimately works to preserve your dental health, is visiting your local Cayuga County Dentist.
