A Toothbrush Takes Care of Your Teeth, Take Care of It | West Palm Beach Dentist

Posted on: March 28th, 2017 by CSHYUBNNAI No Comments

A toothbrush is intricate in order to maintain our oral health. Not only does it keep our smiles bright and shiny, but it also helps scrub away all of the nasty cavity-causing bacteria invading your mouth. The best way to limit the bacteria left on your toothbrush is to replace it on a regular basis. But how often is a regular basis?

According to The American Dental Association, or ADA, recommends throwing out your toothbrush every three to four months. If the bristles become frayed, you’re sick, or you have a weak immune system, you definitely need to throw it out even more often. If you use an electric toothbrush, throw out the head as often as you’d discard a disposable toothbrush.

Each time we use our mouth to eat, speak or breathe, we are allowing bacteria and debris into our mouths to attack our healthy mouths. This is why keeping, and sticking to, a daily dental routine is so important. All that daily care is keeping your smile shiny and cavity-free. So, every time you’re tempted to skip brushing and flossing your teeth, remember how many bacteria lurk in your mouth – and what they can do.

Bacteria causes gum disease, and decay, and bad breath. Make sure you’re brushing and flossing as often as possible to eliminate some of those bacteria. Rinsing your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash before or after brushing can also help reduce plaque-causing bacteria that can lead to gingivitis, an early, mild form of gum disease.

Experiencing Tooth Pain? You might need a Root Canal | West Palm Beach, FL

Posted on: January 29th, 2013 by No Comments

A root canal in your tooth can become infected due to a cavity or fracture that allows in bacteria. When a root canal becomes infected it can die. At this point you will begin to feel pain and pressure in and around the infected tooth. This is your first sign that you will need root canal therapy. Without treatment the infection spreads and could lead to tooth loss.

What is root canal therapy?

When the damaged pulp in the root canal of the tooth is cleaned out of all the diseased pulp and the canal is reshaped. Next, the canal is filled with material to prevent recontamination of the tooth. Lastly, the tooth is permanently sealed with a post or crown.

A root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!
