How to Get Rid of Those Cavity Creeps | West Palm Beach Dentist

Posted on: April 27th, 2017 by CSHYUBNNAI No Comments

No one wants cavities, but they are often hard to prevent. We get them every day. And once we get a toothache it’s time to visit the dentist for a filling. But what if there was a way for you to treat cavities in your own home? There are. And you probably have them sitting in your pantry.

As your tooth decays, a hole will develop. This is called a cavity. Lots of things can cause them, but a proper dental routine is key to staving off all dental issues. And cavities aren’t exactly painful when they begin to develop. That’s why it is important to brush and floss every day, in combination with dental visits. Because if they get worse, you will begin to feel a toothache and certain foods will cause them to feel sensitive and/or painful. So, while you wait for your dental appointment, try these quick remedies:

Clove. Cloves is one of the best remedies because of their anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Applying this quick homemade solution will help ease the pain and further stop the spreading. Mix ¼ tsp of sesame oil with 3 drops of clove oil, apply three drops onto a cotton ball and apply to the sore tooth before bed.

Salt. Similar to clove, salt help ease pain and inflammation but also puts a kibosh on the bacteria that caused the cavity in the first place. Dissolve a tsp of salt in a glass of warm water and swish for a minute three times a day.

Why do we use Toothpaste? | General Dentist | Serving Jupiter, FL

Posted on: January 27th, 2014 by CSHYUBNNAI No Comments

Ever wondered why we use toothpaste? Toothpaste helps to clean our teeth of plaque and food debris without damaging our delicate enamel. Toothpaste contains fluoride which helps to protect enamel. Some also include ingredients to reduce plaque. Toothpaste is a huge part of preventive dental care.

Toothpaste is made up of several ingredients that help to clean your teeth, such as:

  • Abrasives – helps to remove stains and plaque.
  • Detergents – this is what makes the toothpaste foam. It helps to dislodge food debris.
  • Humectants – gives the toothpaste texture and moisture.
  • Thickeners – helps the toothpaste stay on your brush and squeeze out of the tube that way it does.
  • Preservatives, Flavoring and Coloring: these give toothpaste the look, and taste it has.

In addition to your normal preventive dental care routine at home, be sure to visit Advanced Dental Group in West Palm Beach, FL for dental cleanings and checkups. Call for an appointment today at 561-689-0872. Visit the website at www.advanceddentalgrp.com.
