Common Oral Health Questionsby Dr Allen Nazeri Doctor, Dental
Oral health is as important as your all-embracing health. We all are accustomed with some accepted articulate advantageous habits like brushing and flossing. Of course they are important but there’s something else you can do to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Here are some popular and common oral health questions we all have to ask:
• What are the ways to prevent cavities, even I brush, use mouthwash and floss?
If you brush properly, use mouthwash and floss and still have cavities, you should go your diet with a dental professional. The content of acid in your saliva could be high could be the reason of it. The foods and drinks like soft drinks and exercise bars contains huge amount of acid and sugar and thus cause tooth decay.
• Does kind of dental floss matters or is it all a matter of preference?
According to me, whichever the product works the best for you and is the easiest for you, is the best to use. In case floss gets torn or stuck in half in your teeth, probably it’s a sign that a dental procedure is needed.
• Can anyone get cavities under braces? Is yes, how are those cavities treated?
With braces, anyone can get cavities just as easily as they would without them. During orthodontics treatment, oral hygiene like frequent brushing, fluoride rinses, water picking and frequent cleanings is imperative. Generally cavities can be fixed while braces are still on, but they do have to be removed first sometimes.
• What are the causes of stained teeth and turn them yellow?
Dark foods, beverages or substances in cigarette smoke adhere to plaque on the teeth’s surface and can cause stains. On the other side, tooth enamel thins with age and exposing the yellowish dentin underneath.
• Are Jordan almonds, sticky ones or hard candies bad for your teeth?
Candies are bad for several reasons. Its stickiness and hardness can break teeth and loosen your fillings. The sugar contained candies allows bacteria to create cavities and also creates an acidic environment in the saliva which acts as a breeding ground for deep decay.
• Does any special care need for a crowned tooth?
Usually crowned tooth does not require any special care, but because a tooth is crowned does not mean the underlying tooth is protected with gums or tooth decay. That’s why following common good oral hygiene practices are necessary such as brushing and flossing especially around the crowned area.
• Is gum diseases or gingivitis is transmittable by kissing?
According to a research, couples share each other’s bacteria while kissing. However common sense indicates that everyone get teeth cleanings every 3 to 6 months and should keep up with their oral health.
• Is bleeding from gums every time while brushing, a problem?
Of course yes. It’s just like saying that your hair was bleeding when you brushed it. It could be a sign of infection and time to see dentist immediately. Adults need every 3 to 6 months professional dental cleaning with a rigorous home care program.
