Cosmetic Dental Issues of Erosion

While there are some new and wonderful ways to correct your teeth after they begin to erode, there are also several ways to prevent dental erosion from happening in the first place. There are several cosmetic dental defects that can occur from erosion such as discoloration, chipping and gum recession. In fact, gum recession can later lead to the loosening or loss of teeth.

Prevention methods

Aside from regular dental cleanings, brushing and flossing, there are some things you can do to help prevent or slow down dental erosion. Smoking is one of the first causes of dental erosion. It can cause your teeth to yellow and decay. Smoking tobacco products can also contribute to gum disease.

Another thing to be careful with that you may not think of is tongue piercings. They can contribute to chipping in your teeth and even contribute to gum recession.  Avoiding highly acidic beverages and foods can also help or rinsing your mouth with water after consuming these beverages or foods.

Since saliva is part of what protects the enamel on your teeth, dry mouth can contribute to the erosion of your teeth. If you do have a case of dry mouth, you may want to ask your dentist for a recommendation for a restoring mouthwash. Drinking plenty of room temperature water can also help with erosion.

Causes of erosion to watch out for

There are some causes of erosion that can be somewhat out of your control such as genetic conditions like acid reflux. In this case, it is best to do anything else you can do avoid dental erosion. If you tend to grind your teeth in your sleep or brush your teeth too hard these are both huge causes for dental erosion

A mouth guard of some kind would be best for the night time to help protect your enamel. For your teeth instead of brushing too hard, try to keep it soft and light and use a soft-bristled toothbrush two times a day. Focus more on making sure to get all the hard to reach places on your teeth and gums rather than trying to brush hard.

Finally, make sure to check your medications. If your diet is too high in sugary and acidic products this can also contribute to dental erosion. Once dental erosion has happened, there are several things that can be done to help with maintaining the original appearance of your teeth. The cosmetic dentistry used will depend on the extent of the damage.

Call The Dental Touch for more information

For teeth that have more damage than re-mineralizing toothpaste can handle, such as a small dent to the enamel, dental bonding can be used to help restore the original look of your teeth. It is the small color as the tooth and can help get it back to its normal appearance and color.

However, if the damage is greater than what even the dental bonding can handle, the next cosmetic dental option would be crowned. This option offers more full coverage for the tooth and will also help hide severely eroded teeth.

5 Situations Where You Will Need Emergency Dental Care

Some oral issues require emergency dental care. Waiting a few weeks before seeing a dentist will not be the ideal thing to do in these situations. Besides the unbearable pain that a patient will have to deal with if he or she decides to ignore a dental emergency that requires immediate assistance, it is also possible to exacerbate the problem and make it even worse.

When emergency dental care is needed

Emergency oral care tends to be more expensive than scheduling a regular appointment, so it is only reasonable that people are hesitant to visit an emergency dentist when they are not sure how severe the problem is. To make things easier for them, here are five situations where the services of an emergency dentist are needed:

1. Persistent toothaches

All toothaches are not equal. Some can be easily managed with over-the-counter medication and pain relievers, while others will leave a person unable to focus throughout the day and sleepless at night. When a person experiences sharp, persistent toothaches that refuse to go away, that is typically a sign of a more severe dental issue that requires immediate treatment. This pain can be caused by a sensitive tooth, infection or fractured tooth.

2. Damaged tooth

Chipped, fractured or broken teeth often lead to other complications when not addressed promptly. The fracture can continue to grow until it reaches the pulp chamber. Once this occurs, the nerve and pulp inside the chamber become exposed to the irritants in the person's mouth like food particles and bacteria. That is a recipe for tooth decay and infections which can eventually lead to the complete loss of the tooth.

3. Severe bleeding of the gum

Bleeding gums is never a good sign. It can be an indicator of gum disease and infection. Infections are relatively easy to treat during the early stages, but, once it starts to spread to other areas, controlling it becomes exponentially difficult. The same goes for gum disease. The early stages are fully reversible, but that is not the case once it progresses to periodontal disease.

4. Lost dental prosthetics

Patients with dental prosthetics like crowns, veneers or fillings need to seek a dentist immediately when something goes wrong with their devices. It easy to damage these prosthetics when they are not in the mouth, but dentists can typically restore them with ease when something goes wrong. Quickly taking the damaged prosthetic to a dentist also helps patients to regain their smile immediately.

5. Tooth loss due to trauma

When a person loses a tooth due to trauma caused by a sports injury or an accident, an emergency dental visit is essential. There is always the possibility that the injury damaged the surrounding gum tissue and nerves, and that can lead to some significant complications. Also, it is possible for a dentist to reattach a tooth that has been knocked out if the tooth is preserved in saliva or milk and taken to the dentist.

What Can Happen If You Don’t Treat a Chipped Tooth?

If you have a chipped tooth, you should contact us as soon as possible. Not treating a chipped tooth in a timely manner will cause significant problems down the line.

Here is a look at how the failure to seek proper treatment for a chipped tooth will hinder your oral health.

Leaving a Chipped Tooth Untreated

Without professional treatment, the broken tooth is susceptible to an infection that will only get worse over time. This infection can move to the neck and head, causing all sorts of health problems. While rare, it is possible for a chipped tooth to prove life-threatening.

Do not let this happen to you.  Meet with a dentist after chipping your tooth to help reduce the pain, ensuring the chip does not lead to additional problems.

Why Visiting With the Dentist is Necessary

It does not matter if you have minor symptoms, no symptoms at all or considerable pain. An analysis of your chipped tooth is necessary to preserve your oral health. The failure to obtain timely treatment at a dentist's office will cause the pain to linger. Removing the tooth may also become a solution. While your chipped tooth might not spur immediate pain, an infection can set in and compromise your oral health as well as your health as a whole.

If the tooth hurts, changes color or proves sensitive to heat, the pulp portion of the tooth might have serious damage. You need the trained eye of a dentist to determine if the root has any damage or if there is a possible infection. An infection can occur if the break is severe enough to expose the tooth's pulp.

The pulp is the portion of the tooth containing blood vessels and nerves. Bacteria that moves into the mouth has the potential to move to the pulp and cause an infection. It is possible for pulp tissue to die as a result of the chip.

Treatment Options

If you have compromised dental pulp, you will need root canal therapy in order to eliminate the infected tissue and apply a sealing. In some cases, a root canal will prove unnecessary. The manner of repairing the chipped tooth hinges on the extent of the damage.

Minor chips, cracks or breaks can be repaired through dental bonding or a filling. A dental crown will likely be necessary for large breaks. However, if only a small portion of the enamel is missing, a filling can be a repair option. If there is a crack in the front of the tooth, then the dentist will use dental bonding to repair it.

How to Proceed Until You can Meet With the Dentist

You can do a couple things on your own to reduce discomfort before meeting with us. Rinse your mouth with salt water, take a pain reliever and cover the sharp portion of the chip with dental wax. If you do not have dental wax, apply some sugar-free gum to the sharp edge. Restrict your diet to soft foods and do not bite down until you meet with us.

At-Home First Aid for Common Tooth Injuries

Tooth injuries tend to be dramatic events.  One or several knocked-out teeth will compromise your oral health and the look of your smile.  What matters most is how you respond to this unfortunate incident. Some tooth injuries are fairly minor and do not require intensive treatments.

Other tooth injuries are more serious and require the attention of a skilled oral health professional. It is imperative you have the proper first aid materials available in your home to tend to these injuries in a timely manner.

Even if the injury is severe, treating it with an at-home first aid kit prior to visiting the dentist has the potential to save the tooth.

Here is a look at what your first aid kit should contain to mitigate oral pain and damage.

Oral First Aid Kit Contents

Every first aid kit should contain the supplies necessary to tend to minor mouth irritations and injuries. This means your first aid kit should contain a dental mirror, sterile gauze, cotton swabs, cotton balls, a sealable plastic bag for the disposal of bloody swabs/gauze, tweezers, a toothbrush, aspirin and a washcloth.

It also makes sense to add dental wax, paraffin, an instant ice pack, a washcloth, an oxygenating oral cleanser, medical exam gloves and dental floss to your kit. If you are wondering why dental floss is in the list above, you are not alone.  Most people question why floss is necessary for such a kit. Floss removes objects stuck between teeth and gums better than most other tools.

Once you remove the object in question, rinse with water so leftover particles are washed away. It is always better to use floss to remove wedged objects as opposed to attempting to use a pointed or sharp instrument. If floss does not remove the item in question, meet with your dentist as soon as possible for a safe and efficient removal.

Pain Medications

Aspirin should be in every at-home first aid kit. If you hold a bias against aspirin, put Tylenol in your kit. Even an oral anesthetic will help to minimize pain before you can visit the dentist.

The Importance of a Cold Compress

A cold compress will prove quite helpful for mouth injuries, toothaches and swelling. Apply a cold and wet washcloth to the side of the face where you feel pain. You can also apply an ice pack to alleviate pain and swelling. Apply the cold compress or ice for 20 minutes.

Let your mouth and cheek rest for another 20 minutes. If the pain or swelling is still present, reapply the cold compress or ice pack for another 20 minutes. Do not apply any form of heat. Choose something cold and you will find your mouth feels that much better.

Do not Forget to add Several Small Containers

Add a couple containers to your at-home first aid kit for tooth injuries so you can preserve knocked-out teeth until you can meet with the dentist.  These diminutive containers will protect your tooth from the elements, contact with potentially damaging substances and ensure you do not lose track of its location prior to your visit to the dentist.

That's not all…

How to Keep Your Breath Fresh

Who wouldn't love to have fresh smelling breath? Foul-smelling breath can be a huge turnoff and it can have a negative impact on your interactions with others. If you have ever had a conversation with a person who has bad breath, you likely tried everything you could to end the conversation as fast as possible and ran for some fresh air.

You certainly do not want to be that person everyone tries to avoid simply because your breath stinks.

So…

Here are a few things you can do to ensure your breath remains fresh throughout the day:

1. Brush and floss regularly

Brushing your teeth often is the most important thing you can do for your oral health. It helps to remove food particles that convert into acids that cause tooth decay. Tooth decay leads to bad breath, so it is extremely important that you keep it at bay if you are serious about keeping your breath fresh. Brushing also removes bacteria that cause bad breath.

Doing it twice a day isn't always enough to cut it, so take a travel toothbrush with you to work and brush whenever an opportunity arises like after lunch. Floss whenever you can feel food particles stuck on your teeth. Pay lots of attention to your tongue while brushing as it is the perfect haven for bacteria.

2. Use an antibacterial mouthwash

A good mouthwash should be part of your daily oral routine. These washes contain antibacterial agents that kill bacteria in your mouth that cause bad breath and tooth decay. Mouthwash also helps you to clean tight spaces toothbrushes and dental floss cannot reach.

3. Drink lots of water

It is easy to find yourself stuck in a routine that involves you seeping on coffee, tea, or sodas all day. That does not have to be the case. Water is more than enough to wake your body up even if you are not a morning person, and it keeps you well hydrated. When you are dehydrated, your mouth secretes less saliva which makes it a breeding ground for bacteria that causes bad breath. Nowadays, most drinking water is fluoridated, so it also helps to remineralize your teeth.

4. Eat wisely

Certain foods lead to bad breath, there's no way around it. You are simply not going to have fresh-smelling breath after consuming lots of onions or fish. Choose your meals wisely if you want to keep your breath fresh. If you decide to enjoy some of these foods eat some of the garnish like parsley to negate any bad smells coming out of your mouth.

You can also brush your teeth, use mouthwash, or chew on some gum to freshen your breath after eating odorous foods.

5. Address any dental issues that come up

There are many dental issues that can lead to bad breath. These include tooth decay, infections, and gum disease. You will always have a tendency to have bad breath if you leave any of these unaddressed.

7 Reasons a Dental Cleaning is Necessary

When was the last time you had a professional dental clinic? Hopefully, you have not skipped too many cleanings since these can have a significant impact on your health in general. This procedure will also help you to keep your smile as bright as ever.

Poor oral hygiene leads to a host of serious medical issues like bone loss, cancers, strokes, and cardiovascular disease. That is why it is important to brush your teeth twice a day and floss regularly. That goes a long way when it comes to improving your oral health.

Regular brushing and flossing will not be enough and will only be effective with regular visits to the dentist at least twice a year. Not sure what all the fuss about dental cleaning is all about?

Here are seven reasons why you should go for a dental cleaning every year:

1. A more complete clean

There is no comparing the clean you get at home and the clean you get from a dentist using specialized tools. Layers of tartar and stains that appear to be permanent can be scraped away by your dentist. That leaves you with a whiter, brighter smile.

2. Prevents gum disease

A professional teeth cleaning promotes healthy gums since it removes the tarter that often causes gingivitis.

3. It helps to detect oral cancers early

Oral cancer is a serious issue all over the world. A person dies from it every hour in the U.S. even with potential treatment options. With an oral cancer screening, our dentist thoroughly examines your mouth every time he/she cleans your teeth. While we do not provide treatment, we can help detect signs early on to begin treatment as soon as possible.

4. Reduces odds of developing cardiovascular issues

Gum disease and cardiovascular disease are strongly linked together. Since a professional cleaning twice a year helps to prevent gum disease, it also reduces the odds of you having cardiovascular issues like a heart attack or stroke.

5. Provides an opportunity to detect other issues

Your dentist thoroughly examines your mouth while cleaning your teeth, and that gives him/her an opportunity to detect any issues you are having. From newly developed cavities to broken fillings. As a general rule, the earlier you detect an issue with a tooth, the cheaper it is to fix it.

6. It's often free

If you have dental insurance, chances are you probably get free cleanings. If you are wondering why insurance companies do this, it is because the data is pretty clear. Regular teeth cleaning saves you and your insurance company money in the long-run.

7. You can make arrangements for any issues detected while you're there

Your dentist will go over any issues he/she notices after cleaning your teeth. This is a good time to figure out how you want to deal with them.

Dental cleanings make it easier for your dentist to document the progression of your teeth. That makes it easier for your dentist to intervene when issues arise. Regular cleanings will keep your teeth bright, and improve your overall health.

How can you really use this?

Tips for Preventing Dental Caries From The Dental Touch

Dental caries is a result of tooth decay and yet, completely preventable with the proper oral hygiene regimen. People may not realize the tooth decay begins with an erosion of the tooth enamel that causes holes in the teeth. These holes are known as cavities. If we do not treat dental caries, they will worsen to the point where we need to remove the entire tooth. In fact, this infection has the potential to spread to the root canal, gums and jaw bone. Dental caries can eventually result in tooth loss as well as bone loss.

Abide by these tips to prevent the formation of dental caries in your mouth.

Avoid Foods and Beverages Containing Sugar

Foods that have sugar and starch spur a reaction within the mouth that causes tooth decay. Sugar interacts with bacteria within the saliva to create an acid that leads to tooth enamel erosion. So do not consume sugar-laden beverages like soda and juice with artificial sugar added. If you have a hankering for sweets, choose dark chocolate and clean your teeth after indulging.

Brush Your Teeth at Least Two Times per Day

While it seems like brushing one's teeth two times per day would be easy enough, plenty of people fail to do it. Brush your teeth at least once in the morning and once at night. This brushing will eliminate built-up plaque and bacteria that cause dental caries and gum disease. Don't forget to brush your tongue as well. The tongue is chock full of bacteria. People need to clean the tongue thoroughly with a tongue scraper or toothbrush.

Make Fluoride Your Friend

Fluoride strengthens the enamel on the teeth and thwarts tooth decay. Fluoride is in tap water, toothpaste and specialized trays provided by the dentist. It might also be possible to take fluoride in pill form if the dentist believes it will assist with one's oral health challenges.

Floss at Least Once Each Day

Brushing in and of itself will not suffice for a thorough cleaning of the teeth. Floss is necessary to reach those small crevices the brush bristles cannot reach. The bottom line is if an individual does not floss, then the mouth is not truly clean. The plaque will gradually accumulate in the small spaces between the teeth and around the gum line, causing tooth decay, gum disease and other problems. So be sure to floss at least once per day. Ideally, the individual will floss after meals as well.

The Gums Matter a Great Deal

If a person notices any differences in his or her gums, it is a sign something bad is happening in the mouth. If the gums appear to be inflamed or the person sees blood when brushing, then the person needs to consider these signs of underlying issues. When flossing, people need to make sure to glide the floss between the gums and the tooth and move it around a bit to loosen all those food particles. Furthermore, it will help to swish with a mouthwash that has fluoride to combat dental caries and other issues with the gums.

Visit Your Dentist Twice Each Year

Abide by a regular schedule of dental examinations and treatments to minimize the chances of dental caries. The dentist will analyze the patient's mouth, check for dental caries, perform a thorough cleaning and help in other ways. The patient needs to follow the dentist's advice to combat dental caries. By doing so, the mouth will prove to be that much healthier as time progresses. Call The Dental Touch at (510) 931-1178 to schedule an appointment today in our Oakland office.

Visit a Family Dentist to Protect Your Child from Injury

Visit The Dental Touch today to fit your child for a mouthguard. When your child plays sports, it is easy to think of the equipment you need to get in order to protect them from danger on the playing field. You think of shoulder and knee pads, shin guards, and even jock straps, but sometimes one of the most important forms of protective gear is forgotten, the mouthguard. Many of our patients come in for a visit after their mouth has been injured by a blow to the face. We want to help you prevent this issue from happening before painful or complicated damage occurs.

Reasons Your Child Should Wear a Mouthguard

Save money now by getting the child a mouthguard before damage occurs. The cost of dental repairs and teeth implants from sports injuries is far more expensive than buying a store-bought mouthguard or even a custom-created mouthguard today. Since a mouthguard consists of a rubberized or plastic material, it has more flexibility and cushion than a normal dental structure. When the child receives a blow to the face, he or she will not sustain as much of an injury if wearing a mouthguard.

The mouthguard will absorb most of the blow due to its cleverly created structure. A mouthguard can help the child avoid painful and serious jaw breaks, hard to repair tooth chips and cracks, costly tooth loss, and the need for sutures to repair an oral tissue tear. The parent will also save him or herself from being held liable if another child runs into the parent's and suffers an injury from a collision with sharp teeth.

Ways to Get a Mouthguard for Your Child

There are three main types of mouthguards available for the child. Parents can get a pre-packaged read-to-wear mouthguard for an inexpensive price. These mouth guards do provide some protection, but the levels are low in comparison with other mouth guards. Since the guard is available in generic small, medium, or large sizes, it is hard to find the right option for a child. These mouth guards can be bulky, and they tend to slide around in their mouth.

Parents can also get a mouthguard that they can boil to make the material more malleable. The parent then forms the mouthguard to the child’s teeth. These mouth guards tend to fit more snuggly and provide a little more protection, but they are still slightly bulky. For the best fit and the most comprehensive protection, we encourage you to visit us, as a family dentist in Oakland, for a customized mouthguard for your child.

This option is slightly more expensive, but the fit and protection level will make it worth it. You will be pleased with the comfort level and wearability of the mouthguard we provide, and your child will be protected while he or she plays any number of sports.

Schedule an Appointment Today

Whatever forms of protection you decide are best for your child, we hope you also include a mouthguard. Sports are a great form of exercise and fun, but they can quickly lead to harmful results without the proper protective gear. Visit The Dental Touch, to learn more about how to have a proper mouthguard created.

We Can Answer Your Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

When you have dental imperfections, there are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help. There is no need to remain unhappy with your smile when we can answer your questions and provide you with the cosmetic dentistry care you need.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

What are the best cosmetic dentistry procedures for fixing a cracked tooth?

The answer to this question depends on how badly the crack is in the tooth. If the crack is surface level only, this is very common and likely will not progress to anything worse. If the appearance bothers the patient, we can cover the front of the tooth with a thin bonding material to improve the appearance. This bonding will also slightly strengthen the tooth and can fill in chipped teeth.

If we deem that the cracked tooth is an issue, we will most likely provide you with a strong, natural-colored crown. We customize our dental crowns for each patient’s teeth to provide proper protection. This way, the tooth will not crack any further or be at risk for decay and bacterial infection thanks to the dental crown.

Our crowns are also commonly used to cover discolored, misshapen, and chipped teeth.

If my teeth are crooked, but I do not want braces, is there anything else that will improve their appearance?

In situations like this, we often suggest dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain material bonded to the fronts of the teeth, covering any visible dental imperfections. Our dental veneers will offer patients a straight, properly shaped, and tooth-colored improvement. This process is much simpler than having to wear braces for several months and provides immediate results.

If the patient only has one or two teeth that are poorly shaped, we may be able to employ our detailed contouring techniques to reshape each one. During this process, we use specialized dental tools to gently buff and contour small amounts of dental enamel.

Patients who still want to align their teeth but avoid braces will benefit from something like clear aligners. Clear aligners are a popular option that will provide quick results when worn as directed. When a patient visits our office, we will determine what cosmetic straightening improvement is right for the patient's wants and needs.

If I tried store-bought whitening before and it did not work, will a professional whitening treatment be any better?

Yes. Professional whitening uses different combinations of bleaching agents that will provide quicker and longer-lasting results. We will help patients use their whitening treatment properly by going over in detail whichever method we determine is the most effective. We offer various types of dental whitening, so we can discuss each patient's individual desires when they visit for one of our cosmetic dentistry procedures.

We hope these answers addressed some of your cosmetic dentistry procedures questions. If you would like to learn more call us at (510) 931-1178 and visit our office. We can provide you with all of the information you need about our various quality cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Visit Our Cosmetic Dentist Office for Veneers or Bonding

As a cosmetic dentist, we have several solutions for correcting your damaged teeth or even replacing them, including dental implants and dental bonding. Regardless of whether you have functionality issues that we need to address or you have some aesthetic challenges that are embarrassing, we can help. Here are a few of the procedures we use to do so.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Dental veneers

If you want to create a uniform smile that rivals popular Hollywood stars, dental veneers are the best way to do so. We can place veneers on the surface of your visible teeth, covering your enamel and leaving your actual tooth intact. This allows us to transform the appearance of your teeth in a way that is far less invasive than actually replacing your missing teeth. Dental veneers are incredibly versatile and can close gaps between teeth, cover dark stains, make them appear to be straighter, and even change their shape and size.

Dental bonding

If you like the sound of what veneers can accomplish, but want a solution that is less invasive and more affordable, consider dental bonding. In this procedure, we do not need to remove any of your enamel and can place the bonding material on your teeth after roughening and moisturizing them. We then shape the bonding material, place the material and harden it with a dental light.

Bonding material makes it possible for you to walk in with gaps between your teeth and leave with a complete restoration. While bonding material may not last as long as a veneer or crown, it is durable and can look completely natural. As one, we know how thrilled our patients are with the results.

Dental implants

For patients who have lost one or all of their teeth, dental implants are an ideal alternative to wearing dentures. In this procedure, a titanium post is placed under the gums and secured to the jawbone. The body treats titanium like natural matter, so the two elements will fuse together through the process of osseointegration. This process means that the jawbone will provide the same level of stability and biting power to your implant as it would to a natural tooth. As a result, you can eat your favorite foods and continue with all your normal activities without thinking about your teeth.

Dental bridges

We also provide dental bridges as a tooth replacement solution for people who want a secure option but prefer to avoid oral surgery. A bridge is an excellent solution for partial tooth loss when there are remaining natural teeth that can support the bridge after a crown is placed between them. The results are natural and semi-permanent.

As an experienced cosmetic dentist, we have numerous procedures that can be completed to improve the appearance and functionality of your smile. To learn more about dental bonding or dental implants, give us a call at (510) 931-1178 and schedule a consultation.
