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

Posted on: February 28th, 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.

Pay Attention to What You Eat After Teeth Whitening Procedures | West Palm Beach, Florida

Posted on: February 20th, 2014 by No Comments



Following a teeth whitening procedure, Advanced Dental Group will advise you to watch what you eat since many types of food and drink can stain your teeth. Consumption of products such as tobacco, soy sauce, soft drinks and wine will eventually stain teeth, thus consumption should be limited or avoided if white teeth are desired. However, there are certain foods and drinks that can actually help you maintain white teeth. For example, firm fruits such as apples, green beans, cauliflower, carrots and celery will scrub your teeth while you chew as well as promote the flow of saliva which protects teeth. Dairy products high in calcium will keep teeth white and the lactic acid in those products will help prevent tooth decay.

Call Advanced Dental Group today at (561) 689-0872 or visit our website to schedule an appointment and keep your teeth radiant and healthy.

Advanced Dental Group also proudly serves Loxahatchee, West Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Singer Island, and surrounding areas.

Do I have Gum Disease? | Serving Singer Island, FL

Posted on: December 18th, 2013 by No Comments

Do you have bad breathe, sensitive teeth and bleeding gums? You may have gum disease. There are two forms of gum disease: gingivitis, an inflammation of your gums caused by plaque, and periodontitis, a more advanced version of gingivitis that results in a gap between your teeth and your gums.

Gum disease, when caught in the gingivitis stage, can be treated and, in the future, prevented. Periodontitis, on the other hand, is more difficult to treat and, due to the gap between the teeth and gums, may cause your teeth to become loose and fall out.

Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss. If you think you have gum disease make an appointment today with Advanced Dental Group in West Palm Beach, FL at 561-689-0872. Visit the website www.advanceddentalgroup.com.

Obtain a Perfect Smile with Dental Crowns | West Palm Beach, FL

Posted on: September 4th, 2013 by No Comments

Dental Crowns address aesthetic needs, restore tooth function, and enhance the overall health of your mouth.  In cases where teeth have large broken down fillings, a dental crown can protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth.

To enhance your smile, a metal-free, tooth-colored dental crown can also replace an older metal/porcelain dental crown.  Following root canal therapy, a dental crown is typically placed over the remaining tooth structure to preserve aesthetic and tooth function.

For more information on dental crowns or other restorative procedures, contact Advanced Dental Group and make an appointment at (561) 689-0872 or visit our website.

OraVerse to improve your sedation experience | West Palm Beach, FL

Posted on: August 1st, 2013 by No Comments

Sedation is a great way to help increase your comfort during dental work. However, it can take a while for the anesthesia to wear off therefore leaving you with some unwanted side effects. Advanced Dental Group will use OraVerse to help neutralize the negatives associated with sedation.

Normally, it can take between three and five hours for anesthesia to wear off. During this time, you might find it difficult to talk, eat, or smile, and you might even find yourself drooling. This is where OraVerse comes in. It helps to reverse the numbness and restore your body back to normal faster.

Advanced Dental Group will inject you with OraVerse immediately following treatment. Since you’re already sedated you won’t experience additional discomfort. OraVerse will immediately begin to reverse the effects of the sedation in the affected area. This will allow you to feel like normal and go on with your day after your dental visit.

If you’re worried about recovering from sedation, Advanced Dental Group can help. OraVerse is a great tool to help you feel normal faster than ever before following your dental work. We are committed to doing whatever we can to help improve your dental experience.

If you would like more information on sedation dentistry or OraVerse, please contact Advanced Dental Group at (561) 689-0872 or visit our website.

Teeth Whitening – Enhance Your Smile | West Palm Beach, FL

Posted on: July 8th, 2013 by No Comments

teeth-whitening-west-palm-beach-floridaTeeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth.  The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically.  Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc.  Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.

Tooth whitening is not permanent.  A touch-up may be needed every several years and more often if you smoke or drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Reasons for tooth whitening:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

What does tooth whitening involve?

This type of tooth whitening usually requires two visits.  At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary.  The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks, depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.  It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit Advanced Dental Group regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.

To see what whitening can do for your smile, call Advanced Dental Group at (561) 689-0872 to schedule an appointment or visit our website.
