November 16, 2017

teeth health dentist smileStudies reveal that gum disease could increase the risk of cancer in older women. Those cancers include melanoma, gallbladder, lung and breast cancers. Here is why you need to see the dentist regularly and practice oral hygiene.

Key takeaways:

– The study suggests oral hygiene and treating periodontal disease are cancer-preventive measures.

– Periodontitis increases the risk of inflammation as bacteria in the mouth enters the bloodstream.

–  Symptoms of gum disease include swelling, bleeding gums and loose teeth.

Take care of your health and see your dentist for check-ups and treatment.

Reasons and treatment of translucent teeth

November 15, 2017

teeth, health, smile, dentistOur teeth are naturally white. However, over time, our teeth become affected by foods, drinks and other habits. Here are the reasons why your teeth seem translucent.

Key takeaways:

– Erosion of enamel, a hard layer that protects teeth, can result from harmful stomach acids.

– Teeth grinding can also harm tooth enamel.

– Overexposure to fluoride as a child can cause white spots on teeth that may be translucent.

– Lack of appropriate minerals can damage enamel and cause translucent teeth over time.

Tooth sensitivity, teeth changing color (becoming darker or translucent), or changing texture. As your enamel wears away, your teeth are also more susceptible to decay. Since enamel protects your teeth, a lack of healthy minerals or enamel hypoplasia can worsen your risk for tooth decay.

Your dentist will treat you with enamel remineralisation or veneers.

Excessive use of toothpaste could be dangerous -study reveals

November 14, 2017

teeth health smile dentistHow safe is your toothpaste usage? You have reasons to consult your dentist about the type and amount of toothpaste to use.

Key takeaways:

– Although you do not swallow your toothpaste, the mouth cavity has a high permeability.

– Any chemical put in your mouth can be absorbed into your bloodstream.

– Triclosan, a prominent chemical in toothpaste and hand soap, may cause quick blood level rise in children.

Triclosan whitens and cleans teeth and fights gum disease but if used excessively it can have effects on hormones and the immune system.
