Identify your gum health..IMPORTANT!!

 When it comes to your mouth’s health, it’s not all about teeth. You can’t forget about your gums! Even if you’re cavity-free that doesn’t mean you’re immune to gum disease. Since it’s usually painless, most people did't realise they have gum disease.

 Gum disease starts when plaque builds up under and along the gum line. Plaque is a sticky film-like substance that’s filled with bacteria. It can cause infections that hurt the gum and bone, which can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. Plaque also can cause gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease.

Gingivitis causes your gums to become:

  • Inflamed
  • Tender
  • Red
  • Swollen
  • Bleeding when brushing

If the gum not treated in early stage, it can cause periodontitis which is a second stage of gum disease. If it's not treated, it will affect the gum, bones and tissue that connect to your teeth. 

The advanced periodontitis can cause the fiber and bone that supporting your gum been destroyed. Thus, the teeth become shaky and the teeth need to be removed.

The gum disease can be reversible if you take action!!

1. Floss

    Floss can help to remove the plaque that beyond your toothbrush reach.

2. Regular scaling

    By visiting the dentist every 6 month can help to prevent the gum disease.

3. Quit smoking

    Smoking will weaken your immune system thus harder to fight the gum infection.

4. Brush after meal

    This will help to remove the plague on the teeth and gum area.

5. Use floride toothpaste

    Choose toothpaste that contains fluoride and has the ADA seal of acceptance.

6. Use mouthwash

    A rinse helps remove food particles and debris from your mouth but it's not a      subtitute to brushing

 

What is night guard?

 Night guards are acrylic trays that precisely mold to your teeth, either on the upper or lower arch. The tray is thick and hard and flat.

Who needs to use night guard?

1. Clinching and/or grinding

2. Occusal wear that damages tooth structure

3. Jaw joint inflammation

4. Facial muscle strain

A night guard, when fitted properly, will eliminate the habit of clinching/grinding and prevent the symptoms associated with the habit.  Get health and keep your by stopping the habits that could damage your mouth

 

FUN FACT!!

Myth: I don’t need to worry about baby tooth health since they’ll fall    out anyway.

Fact: Baby teeth should be cared for in the same manner as adult teeth.
