Show DivAre Whitening Toothpastes Really Effective!!

There are several whitening toothpastes on the market. Although they do not affect the natural colour of your teeth, they may be effective at removing staining. Therefore, they may improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Whitening toothpaste may also help the effect to last, once your teeth have been professionally whitened

Show DivBleaching Tips for You

Tooth whitening is most effective on surface (extrinsic) stains.

Extrinsic Stains:

  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
  •  ‘Calculus' or tartar can also affect the colour of your teeth.

Intrinsic Stains:

  • Exposure to too much fluoride as a child while teeth are developing.
  • Tetracycline antibiotics can stain a child's teeth if taken by a mother during the second half of pregnancy or by a child who is 8 years old or younger. Teeth are still developing during these years.
  •  Trauma may also darken a tooth.

Tooth-brushing is one of the easiest methods of cavity prevention. But which type of toothbrush should your child use? Manual or powered, both can assist with keeping your child’s smile cavity-free. When choosing a manual toothbrush, look for round-ended (polished) bristles that clean while being gentle on the gums. Choose one specifically designed for children's smaller hands and mouths. Look for large handles that can help children control the toothbrush. Be sure to brush your preschooler’s teeth and supervise the brushing and flossing of school-age children until they are 7 to 8 years of age. The AAPD recommends using only soft-bristled toothbrushes. Also, remember to throw out a toothbrush after 3 months or sooner if the bristles are fraying. Frayed bristles can harm the gums and are not as effective in cleaning teeth.

A teabag also is an effective alternative to gauze to prevent bleeding, with the added benefit of tannic acid, which assists in clot formation. If heavy bleeding occurs for an extended time, contact your oral surgeon or dentist.

Chew Xylitol chewing gum: chewing sugar-free gum after meals helps in excretion of saliva and to remove food residue from the mouth. Prefer gum containing Xylitol. Xylitol is a natural substitute for sugar, neutralizes the production of acid in the mouth, and helps protect against cavities. Chewing it for about 2 minutes is enough.

Show DivDiabetes & Oral Health

Take steps to keep your mouth healthy. Call your dentist when you notice a problem.

If you have diabetes, follow these steps:

  • Control your blood glucose.
  • Brush and floss every day.
  • Visit your dentist regularly. Be sure to tell your dentist that you have diabetes.
  • Tell your dentist if your dentures (false teeth) do not fit right, or if your gums are sore.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking makes gum disease worse. Your physician or dentist can help you quit.
Take time to check your mouth regularly for any problems. Sometimes people notice that their gums bleed when they brush and floss. Others notice dryness, soreness, white patches, or a bad taste in the mouth. All of these are reasons to visit your dentist. Remember, good blood glucose control can help prevent mouth problems.

Patients today have more options than ever before to treat their teeth. Understanding your choices and their impact on your future dental health and lifestyle is important. If you are given a choice between root canal treatment or tooth extraction, always choose root canal treatment. Dentistry has yet to produce a denture, bridge or implant that looks, feels and functions as well as a natural tooth. If your dentist recommends tooth extraction, ask whether root canal treatment is an option.

Show DivSaving a Knocked-Out Tooth

More than 5 million teeth are knocked out every year in children and adults. With proper emergency action, a tooth that has been knocked out of its socket can be successfully replanted and last for years. It's important to see a dentist as soon as possible after the tooth is knocked out. Quick action will increase the likelihood of saving the tooth.

1. Pick up tooth by the crown (the chewing surface) not the root.  

Locate the tooth immediately; do not leave it at the site of the accident. The tooth should be handled carefully -- touch only the crown -- to minimize injury to the root.

2. If dirty, gently rinse tooth with water.

  • Do not use soap or chemicals.
  • Do not scrub the tooth.
  • Do not dry the tooth.
  • Do not wrap it in a tissue or cloth. 

3. Reposition tooth in socket immediately, if possible.  

The sooner the tooth is replaced, the greater the likelihood it will survive. To reinsert, carefully push the tooth into the socket with fingers, or position above the socket and close mouth slowly. Hold the tooth in place with fingers or by gently biting down on it.

4. Keep tooth moist at all times.  

The tooth must not be left outside the mouth to dry. If it cannot be replaced in the socket, put it in one of the following: 

  • Emergency tooth preservation kit (such as Save-a-Tooth®)
  • Milk
  • Mouth (next to cheek) 

Regular tap water is not recommended for long-term storage because the root surface cells do not tolerate water for long periods of time.
5. See the nearest available dentist within 30 minutes.
