Schedule Regular Teeth Cleanings and Dental Checkups in Los Angeles

Just because you brush and floss regularly and teach your children the right way to brush and floss your teeth, it doesn’t mean complete immunity to tooth decay. Standard toothbrushes and dental floss only reach about 3mm below the gumline. If you have pockets between your teeth and gums that are deeper than 3mm, you won’t be able to reach deep enough to clean out all the bacteria, plaque and tartar. Not to mention, you may not be brushing thoroughly enough, which could result in tooth decay and gum disease.

Preventing Tooth Decay in Kids and Adults

family-wash-teeth

Are you worried about tooth decay? Tooth decay affects all age brackets from kids to senior citizens. It starts when you consume any food or beverage except water. The food particles then mix with saliva, creating a sticky film that feeds the bacteria in your mouth. When the bacteria eat the food particles, they multiply rapidly, creating an acid attack that wears away the enamel on your teeth. If this process isn’t stopped via regular brushing and flossing, it can lead to tooth decay and cavities. Thankfully, there are things you can do to prevent tooth decay and maintain a healthy mouth.

Red Gums Around Crowns: What Should You Do?

Your dentist may cover your tooth with a crown, or dental cap if you have had a cavity treated that is too large for a filling. By having the tooth completely covered with a crown, it will look like a normal tooth. More importantly, the tooth will continue to be fully functioning and you can avoid an extraction. While a dental crown is helpful in preserving your teeth and your smile, you may still run into problems. One of the most common issues that trouble patients is red gums around the tooth with a crown. If this happens to you, you need to understand the underlying cause of the redness so that the problem can be resolved. The last thing you want is a replacement crown. In some cases, your dentist may use materials that are not of the best quality, resulting in irritation. A crown that is not properly placed over the tooth may rub against your gums and cause bleeding or discomfort. When you have issues with your crown, your dentist can help you to find a solution. First, you need to find out why you are experiencing redness.
