Are Dental Implants For You? What Should You Know?

Are Dental Implants For You? What Should You Know?

If you have one or more teeth missing or no teeth at all…you may be considering dental implants.

The end result of a dental implant is a beautiful, stable and natural looking tooth! It’s like your tooth was never gone!

Sounds great right?

It is!

Before starting the process of getting your dental implant, it is important to know it is just that, a process.

So how does it work? How long does it take? Is it right for you? Read on to find out!

3 Pieces Make A Dental Implant!

People commonly refer to the entire process as a “Dental Implant” but it’s actually three pieces.
  • The implant is placed below your gum line into the bone.
  • The abutment is then placed into the implant as an artificial root.
  • The crown is the new tooth or “cap” seated on top.
Dental implants are a fantastic option for you if you have healthy gums, are in good health and have enough bone to support the implant. A consult with your dentist can determine if you meet these requirements or if more work needs to be done prior. Your dentist will also go over some other factors that could affect your healing process such as smoking or certain health conditions. Getting a dental implant consultation is your first step in this multi-step process.

What Happens If You Are Eligible For Dental Implants?

Once you are given the green light to start your implant journey, you will have the dental implant placed in an in office procedure. The implant will be placed in your jaw with local anesthesia. A healing cap is then placed on top. Your dentist will go over healing instructions, dietary restrictions and what to expect.

It is also important to note that an implant can’t be whitened. The dentist will match a color with your natural teeth to make the closest match possible.

The Healing Process

The healing process for implants can be two to six months. Once healed, you will have your abutment placed. This will stick up from your gum line and then an impression can be taken for your crown.

Once your crown is created, it is placed atop your abutment, completing your journey. In some cases, you can expect to have a temporary crown until it’s time for the permanent to be seated. This can make chewing and speaking a bit easier during the waiting process.

Your Dental Implants Are A Part Of You. Care For Them Like Your Normal Teeth

It’s important that you take proper care of this investment. You need to care for your implants just as you would your teeth. So your normal daily flossing, dental cleanings and morning and night brushing is of utmost importance.

Dental implants are a great way to get your teeth back to functioning properly as well as restoring your confidence.

Implant Supported Denture – Why You Should Go For It!

Implant Supported Denture - Why You Should Go For It!

If you already have dentures, you are no stranger to some of the daily pains that come with wearing them. Nothing is more attractive than taking out your teeth before bed, am I right? Unfortunately that is just one of the nuisances you may experience while wearing dentures. Dentures can also slip and slide in your mouth making it hard to eat and speak. No one wants to live in fear that their dentures are going to go flying out of their mouth while talking to friends or sharing a meal with family. Also if your speech is altered, it may be more obvious you are wearing dentures. What is the point of having dentures if you aren’t able to continue about your daily life as if they were your real teeth? I don’t know about you but the last time I checked, you don’t have to take your real teeth out to soak or pick them up off the dinner table during conversation. I also like to enjoy corn on the cob or a caramel apple from time to time…that isn’t a possibility with traditional dentures.

Implant supported dentures are an amazing way to give you a confident, functional and natural looking smile. An implant denture is fixed on four or more implants placed in the jaw bone. While traditional dentures are removable and sit on top of the bone. The implant denture will be fixed in your mouth and will not need to be removed except by your dentist for cleanings and checkups. You clean an implant denture just like you would brush your natural teeth. So you aren’t taking it out and doing the ol’ scrub and soak! An implant denture won’t be moving around in your mouth when you chew or speak either. So you can avoid that embarrassment and discomfort.

An implant supported denture is going to be more comfortable as well. As stated before, the implants are in the bone holding the denture in place. This not only stabilizes the denture so it is not moving around and causing sore spots on your gums like traditional dentures but it is also stimulating the bone. Without that stimulation, the bone will shrink. Since traditional dentures rest atop the bone, there is nothing holding them in so the bone begins to shrink leading to frequent denture refittings and changes in the shape of your mouth.

You shouldn’t have to think about your teeth every second of the day. An implant supported denture can be a real game changer. You can live each day to the fullest, in comfort and confidence. An implant denture will make your life more enjoyable and bonus: You can go get that caramel apple!

9 Tips To Improve Your Oral Health

9 Tips To Improve Your Oral Health

What’s the first thing you notice about someone? Their eyes? Their smile? Those are the most common answers. So when someone notices your smile, are you embarrassed by what they see? Are your teeth getting the attention they deserve? Follow these 9 tips to improve your oral health so you can smile with confidence!

Floss like a boss
Flossing isn’t just a trendy dance the kids are doing now…it’s one of the most important aspects of your dental health! Flossing regularly helps to prevent tooth decay by removing plaque and preventing plaque build up. It also ensures you are removing those stubborn food particles that are in hard to reach places. Leftovers should be in the fridge not your mouth!

Get your good side
We all know the right angle can make all the difference in a photo. The same goes for brushing your teeth! By angling the bristles of your toothbrush 45 degrees to the gum line, you are allowing the brush to access the gaps between your teeth, to stimulate the gums and ultimately be more effective at removing plaque. A brush parallel to the gums can give you an incomplete clean and can apply too much pressure.

No Ice, Ice, Baby!
It’s a common habit to crunch on the ice that is literally “just chillin” at the bottom of your cup. It’s a bad habit dentists recommended stopping asap. The cold temperature and hard texture of the ice can lead to tiny microscopic fractures on your enamel, compromising your tooth integrity and leading to dental problems in the future.

Happy Little Teeth
Bob Ross made millions of people smile each day by painting beautiful paintings using short, gentle strokes and focusing intently. He took his time painting his “happy little trees”. Doing the same when brushing your teeth is a great idea. We don’t want to aggressively brush up and down. We want to brush in a circular motion, focusing on small areas at a time. This allows the bristles to bend as needed and really massage that gum line. Ahh…happy little teeth.

Say no to plaque!
Brushing AND flossing before going to bed is an amazing way to ensure a healthy mouth. When you go to bed without an oral care routine, plaque is left on the teeth. This is especially damaging as it remains undisturbed during the night. The plaque continues to build and will start to harden…which leads to calcification. AKA bad news. Stop it before it starts, brush off those food particles each night so you aren’t feeding the naturally occuring bacteria in your mouth.

Find your dental home
Having regular dental cleanings and exams ensures you can have a healthy smile. You can prevent future issues, avoid costly dental bills and be in the know about your most noticeable feature! Let’s face it, the dental office isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. It’s important you find an office that makes you feel comfortable. Establishing your care with an amazing office who truly makes you feel cared for can make all the difference in your regularity. Call up your local office and ask for a tour!

Don’t brush in a rush!
It’s hard sometimes to get everything ready before flying out the door. It may seem like you are being more productive by brushing your teeth while putting on your shoes or typing up an email. Distracted brushing leads to incomplete cleaning and shorter brushing times. Brushing your teeth should only take two minutes of your time and it takes those full two minutes to ensure the fluoride in your toothpaste can attach to your enamel. The average person brushes for 45 seconds…eek!

30 minute wait
If you just washed your car, would you immediately take it out to the beach? Hopefully not. Same with your teeth! After brushing and flossing, wait at least half an hour before eating or drinking. This will help the fluoride remain effective without the risk of it being washed away.

Soft serve
A soft bristle toothbrush serves you best! You want to gently remove plaque not remove the protective coating on your teeth. Look for a brush that is a good fit for your mouth with soft bristles. You want the toothbrush to be able to reach the back of your mouth and around the teeth. The bristle type should be listed on the package, avoid medium and hard bristled brushes.

Tips to Care For Your Dental Implants

Tips to Care For Your Dental Implants

Tips To Care For Your Dental Implants

Dental implants are definitely an investment worth taking care of! So what are somethings you can do to ensure their longevity? We have compiled a list of tips to help you keep your implants in the best condition possible. Dental implants can last a lifetime if properly cared for! No surprise here, your implants should be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth. So if you didn’t have a good oral care routine prior to getting your implants, now is the time to step up your game!

Brushing
You will want to brush your teeth at least twice daily with a narrow headed, soft bristled toothbrush. It’s been proven that soft bristles are better and removing plaque from your teeth and gum line. A narrow head will help reach the crevices and curves of the implant. A powered soft bristle option is a great choice. While a regular brush will get the job done, a powered toothbrush will make your brushing easier and more fun!

Toothpaste
When choosing your toothpaste, choose something that is non abrasive. A non abrasive toothpaste will be safer for your implants and your enamel. It will still provide the thorough clean you need and will keep everything in tip top shape.

Flossing
Flossing is an important part of any oral care routine. Ensure that you are still flossing at least two times per day. It is best to use unwaxed floss or an implant specific floss. Your dentist can give you a good idea of what to look for. Flossing properly with a “c shape” hugging the teeth is most efficient.

Oral Irrigation
Your dentist can recommend the best oral irrigation system for you. These are also sometimes called a water pick, dental jet or water flosser. Oral irrigation helps remove stubborn debris and food particles on your teeth. It also aids in reducing harmful bacteria. Proper cleaning helps prevent periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can still occur with implants, so it’s important to take great care of both mouth.

Dental Visits
It’s imperative you visit your dentist regularly. Every six months is recommended. During that visit, they will complete an exam, x-rays if needed and provide a thorough cleaning. Your dental team will be able to determine an issues that could be a cause for concern in regards to your implants or natural teeth.

Protect & Get Stronger Teeth, Naturally

Protect & Get Stronger Teeth, Naturally

Raisins

Raisins are not only delicious but they are good for your oral health! They are an amazing source of phytochemicals. These chemicals suppress the growth of bacteria associated with gum disease and cavities. So even though raisins are sticky and sweet, they aren’t detrimental to your dental health, as they do not contain sucrose. They contain fructose and glucose sugar types. Sucrose is heavily related to sugar-related oral diseases and cavities. Eat up!

Tip: If your child doesn’t like raisins, make it fun! Make your own trail mix and let them help! Get some of your child’s favorite crackers, snacks and add in some raisins for your perfect trail mix, kid approved!

Yogurt

If foods could be superheros, Yogurt would have the coolest outfit with the best cape! Yogurt is a superfood for your dental health. We all know yogurt contain probiotics and those are good for you, but did you know probiotics help your gums too? That’s right! The active cultures in yogurt can help slow the growth of cavity causing bacteria. It’s also a great source of calcium, keeping your teeth strong and healthy! Yogurt also decreases the acidity in your mouth by balancing your mouth’s PH and lastly it can help reduce bad breath! Those powerful probiotics are at it again, this time reducing the stinky bacteria found in your mouth.
Tip: Make sure to make a good yogurt choice for optimal benefits, one that is sugar free and plain is going to have the most probiotics. Too plain for you or your child’s taste? Add in some fresh fruit or honey to naturally sweeten.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil could rule the world! Everyday we are hearing about more and more benefits of this powerful source of saturated fat. Coconut oil has significant benefits for oral health as it contains lauric acid. This type of acid attacks harmful bacteria in the mouth. This bacteria can also cause tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath! Another use for coconut oil is oil pulling. Pulling can be beneficial in decreasing plaque buildup and signs of gingivitis. Numerous studies have been done showing that coconut oil can reduce as much bacteria as chlorhexidine given to you in the dentist office!

Tip: Coconut oil is easy to add in to recipes. A quick google can give you numerous ways to include coconut oil in snacks, meals and desserts that you and your family will love!

Onions

Onions may make you cry when you cut them but they make your mouth smile when you eat them! Onions are great at neutralizing oral bacteria leading to healthier gums. Onions have microbial properties that take aim at some of the most common types of bacteria in the mouth. These harmful bacteria cause cavities and gum disease! So level up your onion intake to keep your mouth in check.

Tip: Onions can quickly be added to many dishes you eat or make your family such as salads, burgers or soups. You can also try making some onion rings in an air fryer for your little one!

Leafy greens

Leafy greens such as spinach have more fiber thus requiring more chewing increasing your saliva. More saliva helps “rinse” food particles that may be stuck to your teeth near the gum line. Kale and spinach are also filled with vitamins and minerals that are not just good for your health but for you mouth too. They contain Vitamin C, which is known to reduce inflammation. This is especially beneficial in aiding gum disease and irritation.

Tip: Add some spinach or kale to some of your child’s favorite fruits and coconut milk for a delicious smoothie!

As always, it’s important to keep up your dental care routine. Brushing twice daily, flossing at least once daily and going to the dentist regularly. While these foods may be beneficial to your oral health, that doesn’t mean you should leave them sitting on your teeth. So make sure to keep up your healthy dental practices for an optimum smile!

The Best Product For Enamel Safe Whitening

The Best Product For Enamel Safe Whitening

So you want to be noticed for your beautiful smile as well as your awesome personality…but your smile isn’t as white as you’d like. We all know a bright white smile can light up any room you walk into. Obviously, to achieve a whiter smile, you would undergo some sort of whitening process. It feels like there are a million and one products out there for whitening your teeth. You have options in your dental office, options for at home and options on the go. How do you know what is the best and safest options are? Too often we impulse buy, especially at Target (II see you ladies!)… but before you go reaching for the shiny, sparkly, new whitening product on the shelf, let’s do some research!

First and foremost, you want to ensure you have a healthy strong enamel on your teeth . Healthy enamel is white in color and is responsible for protecting your teeth. When that enamel wears away, the yellow dentin beneath is revealed. An exam at your dental office and a cleaning is the best way to determine what condition your teeth are in, so you can start your journey to the bright side!

Whitening In Office
An in office procedure to whiten your teeth will provide you with faster results and they may last longer as well. While slow and steady is typically best with whitening, your dental professional can your individual needs

Whitening Strips
The most enamel safe whitening base is hydrogen peroxide. Many name brands make whitening strips options that you can purchase at a local retailer with this as the main ingredient. Also look for enamel repair, enamel therapy or something similar on the package. Sometimes these products have extra protection for you!

Hydrogen Peroxide
Using hydrogen peroxide alone is also an option! It’s safest to dilute the concentration before using. You can use the peroxide as a mouthwash before you brush your teeth. If picking up a bottle at your local drugstore, you are most likely to find a 3% solution. You will want to dilute that to a 1.5% by mixing equal parts water and peroxide. Remember to not over use the peroxide or use too strong of a concentration.

Whitening gel with custom trays
Ask you dentist what take home options they have for you. Most have a whitening gel that comes in different concentrations and your dentist can give you what he feels is best for the health of your teeth. Whitening gel requires trays to keep the gel in place for the determined amount of time. Your dentist will custom fit trays just for you! So you’ll get a nice even whitening.

Remember: Brushing and flossing is key to a healthy smile. Increasing your brushing and flossing may help decrease staining thus whitening your teeth! If you brush every time you eat or drink, you are ensuring those particles aren’t getting stuck in there contributing to stains.

9 Common Signs That You Need Emergency Dental Care

9 Common Signs That You Need Emergency Dental Care

Emergencies can happen at any moment of the day. Staying prepared is wise, however we never know when will we be called by one. So, here I have compiled 9 common signs that can help you know if you should visit your dentist now or can it wait till tomorrow!

1. You are experiencing bleeding
Seeing your gums bleed after you brush or floss is a cause for concern. It is a warning sign of gingivitis or gum disease. You may even notice a smell when flossing, swelling of the gums or aching. Treatment of early gum disease is of utmost importance. Once the disease reaches a certain point, it can leave you with the inability to return your teeth to a healthy state. So seeing your dentist to determine what exactly is going on and creating a treatment plan right away can literally save your smile!

2. You have sudden tooth loss
As an adult, losing a tooth can be not only painful but also unfortunate cosmetically. If a tooth is knocked out, falls out or is loose, you’ll want to phone your dentist right away. If action is taken quickly the tooth may remain viable and can possibly be replanted. You must act fast! So if your face took a soccer ball or if your tooth decided to become one with your apple…save that tooth and call the dentist! Your dentist may give you instructions on how to preserve the tooth until you reach the office.

3. You have swelling
Swelling can be a major sign of infection. Infection in your mouth can be potentially life threatening. It’s important you are seen by a dentist quickly. Swelling can be present in your gums, face or even your lymph nodes. An untreated infection can get into your bloodstream and cause some serious health problems. Be sure to tell your dentist how long you’ve been experiencing swelling, where it’s located and any other signs of infection you may have.

4. You are in pain
Pain that is keeping you awake, radiates to your neck, jaw or ear is common when you are experiencing a serious dental issue. Lying down may increase your discomfort when this type of pain is present. You may also have persistent throbbing in your mouth, sensitivity and/or facial swelling. A dentist can complete an exam and take a few x-rays to determine what is going on. It’s important to be sign right away so you can begin treatment ASAP.

5. You have a cracked or broken tooth
The location and severity of your cracked or broken tooth will determine the treatment route your dentist will want to take. Saving the tooth is always top priority. In order to do that, it’s pertinent that you are seen in a timely manner. Be sure to describe how the injury occurred if applicable when you call your dentist.

6. You have a growth or sore
If you notice a growth in your mouth, it’s a good idea to give your dentist a call. A growth or sore that doesn’t go away could be a sign of oral cancer. A dentist can provide a visual cancer screening as well as use a device that can identify abnormalities otherwise not seen by the naked eye. It’s estimated that 53,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer in 2019. Let your dentist be your first line of defense.
.
7. You have a metal taste in your mouth
Before composite (tooth colored) fillings were the norm, a lot of people received amalgam (metal) fillings. If you have a metal taste in your mouth, it’s possible an old filling has become loose or it could be cracking. Leaving a filling in this state will leave your tooth prone to cavities and infections. Avoid that toothache and possible root canal, call your dentist.

8. Your jaw is popping or imobile
If you are experiencing pain, a popping sensation or if your jaw is locked; you should make an appointment with your dentist. In most people, our jaws can slide back and forth with no issues. A person with TMJ can experience a slip in their jaw where it is “stuck”. You may have pain when chewing, a clicking or grinding noise when the jaw is open or limitation of movement. It’s a good idea to get checked out by your dentist to see the severity of your TMJ to avoid other issues.

9. You have a severe toothache
One of the most common symptoms patients experience is toothache. When you have considerable pain that is constant and severe, make an appointment. A toothache can be many things and can cause debilitating discomfort. Your dentist can conduct a proper exam and take x-rays if needed to get to the root of your problem. No pun intended if you end up needing a root canal.

In closing, if you have any dental issue that requires treatment right away to alleviate pain, save your tooth, stop bleeding or decrease swelling…that is considered an emergency. Please don’t hesitate to pick up your phone, call your dentist and provide as much detail as you can in regards to your symptoms. Often emergencies are seen same day. Don’t suffer any longer than you have to. An emergency should be taken seriously.

Oral bacteria can cause inflammation and infections that research has suggested could be linked to clogged arteries, stroke and heart disease. Endocarditis is another troublesome heart condition that has been linked to oral bacteria. This is an infection of the inner lining of your valves/heart chambers. It can occur when bacteria from your mouth or other part of your body spread into your bloodstream and then attach to certain areas of your heart.

Pregnancy
Peridontis has been linked to low birth weight and even prematurity! It’s more important than ever to get your dental cleanings and exams while pregnant. You are more likely to carry your baby to term if you have periodontal treatment before the 35th week of your pregnancy.

Arthritis
Periodontal disease may increase inflammation throughout the body.Inflammation is a common underlying problem with many diseases including autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis.

Dementia
Did you know that having gum disease can cause your risk of dementia to increase? There have also been studies for those that have severe gum disease scored very poorly on memory tests and calculations. Researchers have found memory issues and mild cognitive impairments that can affect your day to day life have been found in those with periodontal disease.

Pneumonia
Bacteria can be aspirated into the lungs and cause pneumonia. When you skip out on dental cleanings, the amount of bacteria in your mouth continues to grow, increasing your risk of pneumonia. Good oral hygiene decreases this bacteria thus decreasing your risk of pneumonia! So brush your teeth to help prevent this respiratory illness.

Of course there are many more factors and health conditions that go hand in hand with dental care. It is important to understand your mouth is an integral part of your body. Your mouth can say a lot about your health without using any words! Be sure to visit your dentist today to get a checkup and cleaning to ensure you are in tip top shape.

What should you avoid doing after having wisdom teeth removed?

What should you avoid doing after having wisdom teeth removed?

Once you have your wisdom teeth extracted, it’s super important to follow the aftercare instructions as well as avoid certain things during your healing period. Let’s quickly go over some tips and tricks to help you heal in the best way possible.

Avoid nuts, grains, pastas, popcorn, etc.-Eating foods that take some effort to chew, that are dry or break into pieces can get stuck into your wound. This will disrupt your healing and should be avoided. Your dentist will provide a list of foods that are best to partake in while you wait.

Do not use straws- When healing, you want to protect the blood clot that forms in the socket where your wisdom tooth once was. Using a straw can suck that blood clot loose leaving your bone exposed and unprotected. This can lead to a very painful dry socket.

Don’t blow your nose- Odd request, we know but hear us out. Avoid blowing your nose, instead just gently blot and wipe your nose. It may be hard if you are experiencing a cold or drainage but it’s important you don’t blow. Blowing your nose can cause that blood clot in your socket to dislodge.

Hold the heat- Spicy foods can cause irritation and discomfort. So pass on the hot sauce, cayenne and other spicy things until you’ve healed. No need to add any extra pain.

Don’t touch the wound – Touching it could cause bleeding and your bloodclot could become dislodged. Not to mention infection risks from your hands! So play it safe. Also remember to keep the gauze in place for the time instructed by your dentist. Usually a half hour.

Just because you no longer have wisdom teeth doesn’t mean you aren’t smart…So use your brains and listen to your dentist and follow all aftercare instructions. There are many more things that could disrupt your healing and things that could contribute to faster healing. Be sure to speak with your dentist for comprehensive instructions. Happy healing!
