X-Rays

By John Baker

X-rays are used by our team of Orleans County dentists to help locate problem areas.  For example, X-rays have the ability to detect cavities, which can then be treated by dentists.  Gum Disease can also be detected by X-rays as it shows up as darker spots compared to the light teeth.

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 Orleans 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. 

Tobacco

By John Baker

The American Dental Association has long been an opponent to tobacco use as it causes many problems in the mouth as well as the entire body.  Our team of Orleans County Dentists has taken the approach to warn our patients about the serious health concerns related to tobacco use. 

A recent study has demonstrated to the public that smoking has been shown to cause bone loss.  Tooth loss is also a common problem among smokers.  In addition, the risk of developing periodontal disease goes up as one continues to smoke. 

Smokers who have had dental work done, such as dental implants, have lower rates of treatment success than nonsmokers.  Our team of $citfull dentists want our patient’s to benefit from successful procedures.  We tell people about the risks associated with smoking and hope they will stop in order to ensure that their dental procedures stay effective and successful. 

Digital Dental Crown: The Modern Day Dental Drive Through

By John Baker

We were always told that in the future microwaves would do all the cooking, clothes would dress us and, of course, cars would soar through the air. Well don’t be too disenchanted just yet; while we all wait for our hover-­­­­­boards to get through R&D, new technology has sprung up that makes the present a bit more practical than sky traffic.

At the annual meeting of the American Dental Association in San Francisco last week companies were out to make the biggest impression. One of the highlights happened to be in the area of development regarding creating and repairing crowns- those tooth shaped caps that fit over damaged teeth. In the past fixing a crown was a minimum of a two visit affair, many times taking as long as three weeks from molding to placing; that all changes now. New technology has been developed that would cut the waiting time for a new crown from the standard two to three weeks to just over an hour.

The process begins about the same as before the area is numbed, and the dentist drills the tooth to shape it for the crown. But instead of making an impression of the tooth, dentists use a tiny camera to create a three-dimensional image of the drilled tooth. A computer program uses that to construct an image of what the tooth will look like with the crown in place.

Afterwards, a machine in a nearby room processes the little details; ridges and indentations-overall components to get just the right fit. The crown is carved out of porcelain or ceramic; about 15 minutes later the new crown is glued in.  

While this sort of CAD/CAM-laymen's terms for Computer-Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing- work has been around since the early 90s, the biggest redux to the project is cost. Up until now these sort of machines cost a pretty hefty penny. Starting at about $100,000 this sort of equipment may have been convenient, but was terrible for profits. Now, new and affordable equipment is being sold for as low as $12,000.

It is these sorts of fortunes that the dream of the future upholds. It may not be the ones we want but it is certainly the ones we need. The future may not be chrome like so many science fiction novels would have us believe it should be, but one thing’s for certain: we will have more greenbacks to go with our pearly whites. In a way, isn’t that what we prefer?

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 Orleans 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 Orleans 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 Orleans 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 Orleans County Dentist.
