Dental Decay

Cavities are preventable and caused by certain types of bacteria (germs) that live in your mouth. Bacteria grow in the film on your teeth called plaque. The bacteria feed on what you eat, especially sugars (including fruit sugars) and cooked starch (bread, potatoes, rice, pasta, etc.). About 5 minutes after you eat, or drink, the bacteria begin making acid as they digest your food. This acid can break down the tooth’s outer surface and dissolve valuable minerals that protect your teeth. The result is cavities. You are not born with the bacteria that cause cavities. These bacteria are usually transferred to you at a young age by your primary caretaker, most often your mother. To reduce the chances of passing the bacteria to your children, avoid sharing utensils, straws or other items that may have saliva on them.

How to Prevent Decay

• Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste

• Clean between teeth daily with floss or other home care device designed to clean between teeth • Eat a balanced diet and limit sugary food and drinks

• Visit your CDA member dentist regularly for professional cleanings and exams

• Ask your dentist about:

– dental sealants, a protective plastic coating that can be applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where decay often starts

– xylitol gum and mints

– fluoride treatments including varnish

Fact that you don’t know about orthodontics

Orthodontics, also known as orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, is a specialty field of dentistry. An orthodontist is a specialist who has undergone special training in a dental school or college after they have graduated in dentistry. The specialty deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws.

Cosmetic Dentistry ® It can really make a difference.

Have you ever asked yourself, “Could my smile be brighter?” or “Is it possible for me to get my discolored, (misshaped, chipped or crooked) teeth to look good?” Thanks to the wonders of modern cosmetic dentistry, the answer is very likely to be, “ Not only is it possible but in many cases, it’s quick, painless and surprisingly affordable.”

You may be able to spruce your mouth up with one, maybe two, of the vast array of cosmetic dental procedures available these days.

• Bleaching lightens teeth that have been stained or discolored by food and age, or darkened as a result of injury. There are two ways to professionally bleach teeth. Your CDA member dentist can apply a bleaching solution to one or more of your teeth per visit, over the course of several appointments. Or, you can be fitted with a custom-made bleaching tray that you wear for a couple of hours every night at home. This process can take one to six weeks.

• Bonding involves applying a tooth-colored plastic putty called composite resin to the surface of your chipped, broken or discolored teeth. The composite resin can also fill in gaps between your teeth and protect roots that are exposed due to gum recession. The entire procedure is virtually painless and is usually completed in one visit. However, complex cases may require several appointments.

• Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells that cover the front of your teeth. Once applied, they correct or camouflage misaligned, poorly shaped, damaged, or discolored teeth. The process of applying veneers usually involves two visits to your CDA dentist.

• If your teeth are a bit overcrowded or uneven, they can be slightly contoured in a procedure called enamel shaping or cosmetic recontouring. For instance, a tooth looks much longer than the rest, some enamel can be removed and your tooth can be reshaped. The process is usually quick and painless.

• Recent advances in orthodontic treatment, such as less visible and more effective brackets and wires, now make straightening crooked teeth more palatable for many adults. How long you’ll have to wear them depends on the severity of your problem, the health of your teeth, gums and supporting bone, and your age.

• A lost tooth or teeth can be replaced with dental implants. Dental implants are artificial teeth that are attached directly to your jaw. They’re much more secure and natural looking than dentures or bridgework, but they can be expensive and the entire process can be quite lengthy. Longtime denture wearers also benefit from implants by having their loose-fitting dentures secured to a specially designed implant attachment. If you’re feeling somewhat self-conscious about your teeth, or just want a more beautiful smile, talk to your CDA dentist about these cosmetic dentistry options.

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.

Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure
