It's easy to ignore, but a little bit of tooth decay or gum disease usually leads to a little bit more. However, one thing is sure. If left untreated, it almost always results in pain, emergency treatment, and tooth loss. So why does this happen?

It's an Infection

Millions of bacteria swim around in our mouths. Many of them are harmless, and some are beneficial. But a few love nothing more than to eat away at the hard and soft tissues of the mouth. Like all living creatures, they need an energy source. Sugars are their snack of choice, and they use simple carbohydrates from our diet to manufacture energy.

Like all living creatures, they also produce waste. These acidic wastes deposited on the teeth erode the hard surfaces, weaken the enamel, and form holes known as cavities.

Some bacteria produce a toxic waste that causes bleeding gums and destroys the bone around the teeth; this is called periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the leading reason people lose their teeth and end up with dentures.

Most infections are cured with antibiotics, but mouth bacteria require a different approach. Regular checkups and cleanings help us find new cavities and remove plaque and tartar that harbor millions of harmful bacteria. High-risk patients benefit from a customized approach with our team. We have many methods to strengthen weakened enamel that has not yet developed into decay.

The complex cycle of inflammation and infection extends beyond the gums and mouth. Research continues to uncover the many ways that our oral health affects the overall health of our bodies, including heart health. Our oral health can influence medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and even some types of cancer. For example, mouth bacteria enter the bloodstream through inflamed and bleeding gums. Like a river, blood flow carries the bacteria to the small vessels of the heart and brain. Here they can damage the intricate vessel lining leading to blockage of the vessel. Heart attack or stroke can result because of bleeding gums.

   

A few tips for maintaining a healthy mouth:

  • Brush for at least two minutes twice a day and floss at least once a day: It sounds like a long time, but it makes a difference. Consider buying an electric toothbrush with a built-in timer or set the timer on your phone. If you don't like to floss, consider toothpicks, proxabrushes or a Waterpik.
  • Rinse your toothbrush thoroughly and replace it every three months: Bacteria linger on your toothbrush, finding their way back into the mouth the next time you brush.
  • Drink sugary liquids through a straw: A straw helps keep sugar from bathing the teeth directly before swallowing.
  • Drink water after eating a meal: Water helps clean larger deposits of food from your teeth. Plus, we all could use a little more hydration!
  • Get cavities treated immediately: Cavities rarely hurt until they reach a critical stage. And don't forget: a little bit of tooth decay usually becomes a little bit more.
  • See your hygienist every six months: The risk of critical dental problems diminishes significantly if you're visiting us twice a year. Patients that fit preventive dentistry into their schedule enjoy fewer dental visits and expenses over time than those who wait for emergencies to develop.

I have been a patient for over 2 years after trying to find a local dentist who takes my insurance. I found them through 1-800-Dentist. The people working there are professional yet kind and truly concerned about the care given me. They are the finest group of professionals it has been my pleasure to be their client., The doctor is most pleasant and takes her time with me and takes personal care of my dental issues and she does not hurt you, which is also important. The procedure they did for me on my gums was done with patience and professionalism and they "truly care" about this patient. It is truly the best dental experience I have had and I will continue to let them take care of me! The people working there that I have had the pleasure of being their patient are the "BEST".
