What Does Tartar Do to Your Teeth?
Posted on 6/20/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Most people have heard of the word tartar. They may think it is a sauce they use when they eat fish, but they may also know it has something to do with their teeth. That is where many people's knowledge of tartar ends. They do not know what it really is and the impact it has on your teeth. It is something that people need to learn. The Basics of Tartar Tartar is the buildup of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is a soft film that is full of millions of bacteria that forms on the teeth. When the plaque is not removed from the teeth, it hardens and forms tartar. The tartar will eventually mineralize on the teeth. This is something that happens without people realizing it. While may ignore the buildup of tartar, they need to learn what it means to the health of their teeth and gums. The tartar has bacteria in it. Once it has hardened, it is not easy to remove. It will require the work of a dental professional to remove the tartar before any real damage happens. If the tartar is not treated, different problems can occur. The bacteria break down the tooth enamel. This can lead to cavities and tooth decay. That is what happens when tartar forms on the teeth. If the tartar forms below the gum lines, the problems get worse. Gum disease and gingivitis can cause significant damage. That can lead to periodontitis. It is like a train that keeps gaining speed the longer it is left untreated. The best thing a person can do is prevent tartar from forming. Good oral hygiene practices help prevent tartar build up. Daily brushing and flossing along with regular visits to the dentist is also important. If tartar does form, the sooner it is taken care of the better. Take a moment and contact the dental professionals at our office for more information about tartar and oral hygiene. We are happy to help....

What Does Stress Do to Your Mouth?
Posted on 6/10/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Too much stress is never a good thing. It can leave us anxious and exhausted, but it can also take a toll on our physical health. There are many ways that too much stress might be affecting your mouth. Clenching and Grinding There are many people out there who clench and grind their teeth when dealing with a stressful situation. This condition is known as bruxism, and it can even occur at night while you are asleep. This is especially concerning, as you won't be able to stop it. A night guard can protect your mouth from tooth damage as a result of your grinding. Mouth Sores Canker sores are painful, white patches that most commonly develop on the inside of the lips. While dentists don't completely understand why they develop, some believe that stress plays a role. Most canker sores go away on their own eventually, but while they are still present they can be quite painful. Tooth Decay When you're feeling stressed out, it can be hard to keep your focus on your oral health. This may lead you to miss dental appointments or to struggle with maintaining your oral hygiene routine. Unfortunately, the result could be tooth decay and cavities. Gum Disease Stress may lead to gum disease in many ways. First, stress affects the immune system, and this can cause existing gum disease to worsen. Additionally, poor nutrition and poor oral hygiene can also lead to gingivitis or the more severe periodontal disease. Bad Breath Stress is a major culprit in dry mouth - a primary cause of chronic bad breath. A lack of saliva impairs the mouth's ability to wash away bacteria and acid, and a foul odor may result. Even if you are under stress at work or at home, you need to make your dental health a priority. Call us today to set up your next cleaning....

Water is Incredibly Important for Good Oral Health
Posted on 5/20/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
When you want to have really good oral health, then you want to make sure you drink a lot of water. One of the reasons that people are told to drink eight glasses of water each day is to help maintain optimal oral health. This helps to keep your oral tissues moist, and rinse debris and bacteria from your teeth as you drink. The more water you consume, the better. Plus, your teeth can take nutrients they need from the water as you drink it. What Do Your Teeth Get Out of Water? The biggest thing your teeth get from water is fluoride. This comes from treated water or bottled water that has had fluoride added into it. This soaks into your teeth as you drink the water, protecting them. Teeth thrive when they have a fluoride coating because it helps to ward off cavities. The wetter your oral tissues stay, the better as well. When you get dry mouth, you are far more susceptible to things like gum disease. If you can keep your oral tissues moist, then they are better able to defend themselves against things like bacteria. Your teeth are also less likely to get cavities if you drink lots of water. As you drink water, you swallow any debris that's in your mouth, leftover from the foods you ate throughout the day. This keeps it from doing any damage to your teeth. The more you drink, the cleaner your mouth stays. To figure out other ways that water helps improve your oral health, come in and see us. We would love to teach you ways to improve your oral health because that makes our job easier and you happier to come visit us. Call us today and schedule your next exam and cleaning....
