Dr Dental, Toothache Pain

09/22/17

Toothache pain will not stop need help in California

Question: I have a really bad toothache that I have been putting up with for months now.  However I think it gotten past the point of no return.   I am in so much pain that I can not sleep.  I  tried calling a few dentist to see about a payment plan but I either can not have one or if the do offer one it only to people that have insurance.

Reply: There is no good reason to put up with a toothache. As you can see they do not go away and only get worse. Now since you are in such pain you will need to get a dental plan that will act quickly.

My advise would be looking at any of the dental discount plans we have to offer on our website. Since they are effective within the next business day of buying the plan. That way you can have your tooth fixed at a more affordable cost to you. You will still need to call the plan network of dentists and see if you can find one that is also willing to offer you a payment plan. You may be able to find one that does if you are part of the plan.

Another option would be and HMO insurance option as they do have an enrollment date for the plan to be effective the first of the next month but they do not have any waiting periods. That at this time is what you may want in order to help fix the tooth that is hurting you

Dr Dental, What Type of Doctor Should I see for TMJ?

08/20/17

Question: I think I may be having TMJ issues. My jaw seems to be making popping and cracking noises and when I wake up in the morning my jaw is sometimes sore. What type of doctor do I need to see for this issue.

Answer: The temporo mandibular joint, or TMJ pain syndrome is a very common medical problem, and symptoms typically include pain in the joint, especially when chewing. There may also be trouble opening the mouth wide in more severe cases. TMJ pain syndrome is most often picked up and evaluated initially by your dentist. Therefore a dentist is a good place to start if you have not seen anyone about this issue. A dentist will be able to determine if you do have TMJ and either start treating you or refer you out to a specialist such as an Orthodontic dentist.

Dr Dental, Why are the Back of my Gums Swollen?

08/18/17

Question: My teeth seem to be fine but my gums in the back bottom of my mouth look to be swollen and are a little sore.

Answer: The most common cause of gum swelling is gingivitis. Gingivitis is inflammation of the gum lining at the base of the teeth. Mild cases of gingivitis will respond to increased dental hygiene (regularly, daily brushing and flossing) to remove bacteria and food debris between the gum and the teeth. More severe cases may require a deeper dental cleaning, which can be performed at your dentist’s office. .

Dr Dental, Caring for Your Baby’s Dental Health.

08/16/17

Even before your child’s first tooth appears, their gums can benefit from your careful attention. After feeding your baby, wrap your finger with a damp washcloth and gently rub across your baby’s gums. By doing so will help keep their gums clean as well as reinforce the habit making brushing their teeth easier for you and your baby as their teeth come in.

Around six months your baby first tooth will start to come in, during the next three years the rest of the primary teeth will come in. When your baby first tooth erupts it will be time to up grade to a baby toothbrush. However, At this stage, toothpaste isn’t necessary; just dip the brush in water before brushing.

As a few more teeth appear, you can start using toothpaste with your child’s brush. Though for the first two years, be sure to choose toothpaste that does not contain fluoride, unless advised to do so otherwise by your child dentist. Teach your child how to spit out the toothpaste after brushing in order to prepare him or her for future use of fluoride toothpaste, which should not be swallowed at any age. A baby should see a dentist once they cut their first tooth. Early dental visits is the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. The earlier the dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental disease and helping your child build a cavity-free smile.

Dr Dental, Making My Child Dental Visits Less Scary

08/14/17

Question: My child is three and is going to the dentist for the first time what can I do to make it less scary for her.

Answer: Since your child is old enough to understand about going to the dentist, there are several things you can do to ease any anxiety she may have. Such as:

* Give her a sneak peek. Take her with you to your next checkup to get her used to the sights and sounds, and let her watch you as you have your mouth check and or teeth cleaned. She will see that though the tooth polisher is noisy, it does not hurt.

* Make sure to choose a kid-friendly dentist. Pediatric dentists are trained in child development and understand how to make kids comfortable. Besides having an upbeat, patient manner, the dentist should add kid-friendly elements to the exam. Some provide sunglasses to block out the bright examining lights and toys to keep their minds off their mouths. Others use puppets to teach proper brushing, and offer post-exam treats like stickers. Ask your pediatrician for a referral.

* Make sure book the dental appointment at a time when you and your child are well rested. If you need to rush back to work or she is tired, the visit will be off to a bad start before you even arrive.

08/10/17

According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry they recommend that you take your child in for an initial dental visit at around 12 months. Other experts recommend waiting until she’s closer to two. Talk with your pediatrician about what is best for your child.

Dr Dental, When will my Baby get his First Tooth?

08/06/17

Normally babies get their first tooth around six months, but it can appear as early as three months or as late as 14 months. Typically, babies get teeth in pairs and they generally emerge in this order:

* The bottom front teeth (incisors)

* The top front teeth (incisors)

* The bottom side teeth (incisors) and the upper side ones

* The first molars (grinding teeth at the back of the mouth) * The canines (pointed teeth next to incisors)

* The second molars But every child is different. By age two 1/2, most children will have about 20 teeth.

Dr Dental, Risk Factors of Gum Disease and Pregnancy Problems.

08/04/17

There are some studies which have suggested the possibility of an additional risk factors associated with periodontal disease. Pregnant women who have periodontal disease may be more likely to have a baby that is born too early and too small. However, there still needs to be more research in order to confirm how periodontal disease may affect pregnancy outcomes. Any infection is cause for concern among pregnant women because they pose a risk to the health of the baby. The Academy recommends that women considering pregnancy have a periodontal evaluation.

What is the Difference Between Periodontitis and Gingivitis?

08/02/17

Gingivitis occurs before periodontitis. Gingivitis usually refers to inflammation of your gums, while periodontitis refers to gum disease and the destruction of tissue and/or bone. Initially, with gingivitis, bacteria plaque accumulates on the surface of the tooth, causing the gums to go red and inflamed, your teeth may bleed when brushing them. Even though the gums are irritated and bothersome, your the teeth are not loose. There is no irreversible damage to bone or surrounding tissue. Untreated gingivitis can progress to periodontitis.

Dr Dental, What is Periodontitis

07/28/17

Periodontitis means “inflammation around the tooth” – it is a serious gum infection that damages the soft tissue and bone that supports the tooth. With periodontitis, the alveolar bone around the teeth is slowly and progressively lost. Microorganisms, such as bacteria, stick to the surface of the tooth and multiply – an overactive immune system reacts with inflammation.

Dr Dental, Poor Dental Hygiene and Links to Heart Disease

07/22/17

A more established link between poor dental hygiene and over all health care is heart disease. At the University of Bristol in the UK and the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin, Ireland, found that people with bleeding gums from poor dental hygiene could be increasing their risk of heart disease. The researchers found that heart disease risk increased because, in people who have bleeding gums, bacteria from the mouth is able to enter the bloodstream and stick to platelets, which can then form blood clots, interrupting the flow of blood to the heart and triggering a heart attack.

Dr Dental, Poor Dental Hygiene and Links to Pancreatic Cancer

07/18/17

Back in 2007, a research team from Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, MA, were the first to report strong evidence on a link between gum disease and pancreatic cancer. The type of gum inflammation associated with pancreatic cancer in the study was periodontitis, which affects the tissue that support the teeth and can cause loss of bone around the base of the teeth.

The other main kind of gum disease – gingivitis; where the tissue around the teeth becomes inflamed – was not linked to increased cancer risk. However, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis if persistent. The follow-Up study, which involved a cohort of more than 51,000 men and began collecting data in 1986, the Harvard researchers found that men with a history of gum disease had a 64% increased risk of pancreatic cancer compared with men who had never had gum disease.

Dr Dental, Milk and Garlic Breath

07/12/17

Study Finds That Drinking Milk Can Prevent Garlic Breath

According to a 2010 study in the Journal of Food Science published by the Institute of Food Technologist (IFT), researchers from the department of Food Science and Technology at The Ohio State University discovered that drinking milk while eating garlic-heavy food can reduce the malodorous breath associated with garlic consumption. Both fat-free and whole milk lowered the concentration of volatile odor-emitting compounds from garlic in the nose and mouth. Due to its higher fat content, whole milk was found to be more effective. Although drinking milk after eating a garlic-infused meal can still help, the study found that drinking it during the meal will have better results.
