Dental and oral health is a key part of your overall wellbeing and health. 

It is a lifelong engagement to preserve healthy teeth and gums. It’s good that you learn oral hygiene habits earlier like brushing, blowing (FLOSSING), and reducing the intake of sugar would save you from costly dental procedures and long-term oral problems.


Symptoms of dental problem

You shouldn’t wait to go to your dentist to have symptoms. Visiting Dentists two times a year, help you find a problem in your teeth until you notice any sign by yourself.

If you have any of the following warning signs about dental problems, you should have an


Get an Appointment with your us as quickly as possible if you have:

Ulcers, sores, or tender areas in the mouth that won’t heal after a week or two, bleeding or swollen gums after brushing, chronic bad breath, sudden sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures or beverages, pain or toothache, loose teeth, receding gums, pain with chewing or biting, swelling of the face or cheeks, clicking of the jaw, broken teeth, constant dry mouth.


Causes of dental disease

Your oral cavity is basically a home of all kinds of bacteria, viruses and fungi in your oral cavity. Some of them are there that make up your mouth’s normal flora. In small quantities, they are usually harmless. A high sugar diet, however, creates conditions for the development of acid-generating bacteria. This acid breaks down tooth enamel and causes tooth decay.

In a sticky matrix called the plaque, bacteria that are near your gum line thrive. Plaque builds up, hardens and migrates the length of your tooth if brushing and flossing do not remove it regularly. This can inflammation your gums and cause gingivitis.


There are many factors that contribute to gingivitis and periodontitis, including:

Smoking, poor brushing habits, frequent snacking on sugary foods and drinks, diabetes, medications that reduce the amount of saliva in the mouth, family history, genetics, certain infections, hormonal changes in women, acid reflux heartburn, or frequent vomiting.


Types of dental disease

It’s no surprise how many things can go wrong over time, especially if you aren’t taking proper attention to your teeth of giving the proper maintenance. We use our teeth and mouths a lot, a proper oral hygiene can prevent most dental and oral problems. 



The other name of cavities is caries or tooth decay. It happens when Bacteria, food and acid covers your teeth and form a plaque. The acid starts to eat away at enamel and then comes on underlying dentin or connective tissues. And very slowly with time, it leads to permanent damage.


Gum disease (gingivitis)

Gingivitis is a gum disease that is an inflammation of gums.  It is usually due to bad brushing and flossing habits that plaque built on the teeth. Gingivitis could swell and bleed your gums if you brush them or floss them. Gingivitis untreated may lead to periodontitis, an infection that is more serious.



The infection can spread to your jaw and bones as periodontitis progresses. The inflammatory reaction can also occur in the entire body.


Cracked or broken teeth

A tooth can crack and crumble during chewing hard food or grind the teeth at night. A splitting tooth may be very painful. If you have a cracked or broken tooth, you should visit your dentist immediately.


Sensitive teeth

 If your teeth are sensitive you will feel pain or discomfort after getting cold or hot foods or beverages. Some causes of teeth sensitivity can be: gum disease, receding gums, cracked tooth, worn-down fillings or crowns. Of course, some people have sensitive teeth due to their thinner enamel. 


Oral cancer

Oral cancers include cancer of the: gums tongue lips cheek the floor of the mouth the hard and soft palate

The first person to identify oral cancer is usually a dentist. The most important risk factor for oral cancer is smoking and chewing tobacco.


 Routine Treatments of dental problems

You think that you have healthy teeth. Even then you must to go for an annual checkup or twice in a year to your dentists because your mouth is the gateway to your health. Your dentist will recommend other treatments if he sees signs of gum disease, infections, or other problems.

Cleanings: What a professional cleaning can do you can’t do by yourself to get rid of any plaque while brushing and flossing. Not only that it’ll also remove tartar. Usually, a dental hygienist performs this cleaning. The hygienist will use a high-powered toothbrush to brush your teeth because it’s a matter to remove tartar from your teeth. After this flossing and rinsing are carried out to wash out any debris.

Deep cleaning is also known as root planning and scaling. It removes tar from above and below the gum line which cannot be accessed when cleaning the routine.

Fluoride treatments: Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral. After the dental cleaning, your dentist will apply a fluoride method to help fight off cavities. This method can help bring back the natural enamel of your tooth and make them strong to fight against bacteria and acid.

Sealants: Dental sealants that are placed on the back teeth or molars are thin protective coating, which helps avoid the cavity. Your dentist may advise a sealant for your children once they are around 6 years of age and they get their second set of molars at age 12. sealants can be applied easily and without any pain.


 Major Treatments of dental problems

Antibiotics: Another method is Antibiotics. The dentist starts it when your teeth show signs of a gum infection or a tooth sore has spread to other teeth and your jaw. your dentist will suggest your antibiotics to help get rid of the infection. Antibiotics can be in any form such as mouth rinse, gel, oral tablet, or capsule.

Fillings: A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc).

Crowns: If after an injury your tooth is broken or cracked or need your dentist will a crown. There are two types of crowns: an implant crown that fits over an already implant, and a regular crown that fits over a natural root.

Root canal: If tooth decay goes throughout the tooth to the nerve, you may need a root canal. During a root canal, the nerve is removed and filled with a biocompatible material, usually a rubber-like material known as gutta-percha and adhesive cement.


The bottom line

Your oral health has an influence over all your body and not just your teeth.  But in specific, poor oral and dental health can contribute problems with your confidence, communication, or diet. You cannot notice any oral problems without any symptoms and only if it gets worse. A regular checkup to your dentist is the best way. Although you can’t control cavity, at least you can reduce the problem.

Missing Teeth, What Are The Solutions?

Missing Teeth, What Are The Solutions?

Here is what we can do for you.

We’re in the business of saving teeth long before we replace missing teeth. Unfortunately sometimes a severely decayed or broken tooth is beyond saving or restoration.

In those cases do not worry, we have solutions for you.


Option 1: Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the gold standard for missing teeth replacement and are the next best thing to your natural teeth. But what are they? An implant  integrates with the surrounding bone, in order to set a crown or bridges. Once placed on the implant (via a “peg” called an abutment), it will look completely natural.


How can Dental Implants improve your daily life?

In some situations, the loss of a tooth may occur and it is important to address that issue as swiftly as possible. The main goal is to prevent he adjacent teeth shifting from their current positions. Leaving an empty space in your mouth for too long after losing a tooth can cause your teeth to move. This could lead you to have misaligned tooth and severe occlusion problems on the long run.


Option 2: All in 4 or all in 6 Bridges

In cases of missing teeth replacements, we provide all in 4 or 6 bridges as a solution.
bridge is when the two teeth on either side of a space receive crowns, and then a replacement tooth, or “pontic,” is added in between to fill the space.


Option 3: Removable appliances (Dentures)

For tooth replacement, removable appliances are ideally the last option. A partial (short for a partial denture), is something that you wear during the day but take out at night. There are different varieties based on the type of material, but they all have the same basic pros and cons.

Teeth Problems, How to Avoid Them?

Teeth Problems, How to Avoid Them?

What are the major causes?

First of all everyone is different and so is our mouth condition. In this blog we will try and cover some of the major causes of common Teeth problems and how to avoid them.


Poor Oral Hygiene:

Not brushing your teeth regularly allows plaque to build up and attack the enamel, it is one of the most common cause of teeth problems and can be resolved very easily buy regularly brushing your teeth at least twice a day. Remember, caring for your teeth by having a good oral hygiene is important!


Plaque Formation:

  Plaque is caused when bacteria, acid, food particles, and saliva all combine in your mouth. This plaque adheres to your teeth and builds up over time. The acid in the plaque attacks the enamel of your tooth and eventually can cause holes in your teeth, otherwise known as cavities.


Dry Mouth:

Saliva helps wash plaque from the teeth. If you have a dry mouth with a very little saliva, plaque may build up more quickly


Eating and Drinking:

This is where most of teeth problems begin. Since we all must eat and drink to live, there’s no way to avoid this, but it does play a significant role in the formation of cavities. When you eat or drink, carbohydrates remain on your teeth until you brush. Even after brushing, you may not be able to remove all food particles or carbohydrates from your teeth. Foods that tend to cling to your teeth can increase your risk for a tooth cavity. Be sure to brush your teeth regularly, especially after drinking milk or soda, or after eating dried fruit, dry cereal, hard candy, caramel, taffy, raisins, sugary cereals, cookies, and breath mints.


Bacteria and Acid:

While most people don’t like to think about it, bacteria naturally live in your mouth. When these bacteria digest the carbohydrates that linger on your teeth and in your mouth, acid forms.


Medical Problems:

Medical conditions can contribute to create teeth problems such as a tooth cavity by causing acid from your stomach to flow back into your mouth. Similarly, bulimia increases the risk of a tooth cavity when the teeth are exposed to stomach acid during frequent vomiting. In addition, some types of cancer treatment that expose the head and neck to radiation can promote a tooth cavity by changing the makeup of the saliva to promote increased bacterial growth.
