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....

Fluoride Treatment: How It Works and What to Expect During Treatment

Posted on 6/8/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Fluoride is popularly known for being able to reduce cavities and for its ability to repair tooth decay in its early stages. Fluoride can benefit both children and adults by keeping teeth strong and healthy. While fluoride is present in food and water, as well as in mouthwash and toothpaste, it may not be enough to prevent tooth decay. To receive better protection, it is ideal that you visit us here at Newport Dental Group to get fluoride treatment. How Fluoride Can Make Your Teeth Strong The crown of a tooth has an outer layer that is referred to as the enamel. The enamel is made of minerals. Every day, these minerals are lost through the process of demineralization and are also gained through remineralization. Demineralization starts when the bacteria in the plaque produce acids. These acids are responsible for the dissolution of the minerals in the enamel. Meanwhile, in remineralization, minerals are absorbed into the enamel, helping to build it back. Too much demineralization and lack of remineralization cause tooth decay. Fluoride helps teeth stay strong by aiding in the remineralization process. Fluoride is absorbed once it comes in contact with your teeth. It replenishes the depleted phosphorus and calcium, which are needed to maintain the hardness of your teeth. As a result, it helps repair the enamel and halts the process of tooth decay. Fluoride can be absorbed by the teeth in some ways, such as when you use a toothpaste or mouth rinse that has fluoride. Fluoridated water also helps. Moreover, of course, one of the most effective ways to get fluoride into your teeth is through fluoride treatment. What Can You Expect From the Treatment? The fluoride treatment that we will give you contains more fluoride than the toothpaste and mouthwashes that are meant for everyday use. They are chemically different and are made to stay on the teeth for a longer period. Before fluoride is applied, the teeth are dried first so that saliva would not dilute the fluoride. Fluoride can be applied as a varnish, foam, or gel. Fluoride treatment can come in various flavors, but it is never meant to be ingested. Fluoride treatments will surely help keep your teeth strong and healthy. However, they alone are not enough to prevent tooth decay. It is still important for you to maintain good oral hygiene, eat a healthy diet, and visit us here at Newport Dental Group regularly. Give us a call so we can schedule your appointment at (949) 574-0100....

Figuring Out Where Your Dental Pain Comes From

Posted on 5/29/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Are you in pain? There are lots of different kinds of pain, but one of the worst pains is dental pain. That's because dental pain can make your head hurt, as well as your ears, face and neck. If you are already in dental pain, what can you do? How can you figure out what is causing your pain? We have some answers. Dental Pain- Why Does It Hurt So Bad? One reason that dental pain is so painful is because your mouth has a lot of nerves. Think about it. Each one of your teeth has tooth nerves, which means that if you hurt a tooth, the pain from one nerve travels down your mouth. The pain can travel to your brain quickly, which is one reason dental pain hurts so bad and is so intense. What Could The Dental Pain Be From? Your dental pain could be from several different causes. First, you may have dental pain from a cavity, especially one that is advanced. Over time, a cavity can grow and spread into your tooth pulp, where your nerves are- which causes serious pain. You may also be in pain due to a cracked or broken tooth, which can expose nerves and cause pain. You could have tooth pain due to clenching or grinding your teeth at night and not even know it until your tooth starts hurting. Over time, this clenching or grinding of teeth might also give you jaw or ear pain, which could signal temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMD. You may also have pain from an injury to your teeth that you thought you had healed from, but that may still be causing you pain. If you are in pain, and you're not sure why, give us a call today, and let us figure out the causes of your dental pain....
