Some of the best memories with our families and loved ones are often complemented with the dishes we enjoyed with them, on that note we must keep in mind the fact that it was our teeth working the hardest in chewing these dishes for us to taste and later digest, many people suffer from loose tooth and have to wear braces that might be visible, or maybe they are using invisalign braces Somerset which uses an
Invisible brace system which is not noticeable. This is not the only option at your disposal as invisalign offers other invisalign aligners for you to choose from.
So, if dental care is in your mind, you have come to the right place.
Like every other part of our body, the teeth often require care from it’s human, or the consequences might just be as painful as a root canal. So let’s get the obvious out of the way, it is really important for a person to brush their teeth one a day at the very least, most of the dentist around the world recommend their patients to brush their teeth twice as it hugely reduces the chance of dental complications in the future, lifestyle habits such as chewing tobacco, smoking cigarettes, not washing your mouth after eating food or just consuming a lot of sweet food may be devastating to your dental health. The problems may range from tooth cavity which requires tooth filling, tooth replacement in the case of tooth loss or if the rot spreads to the gums a medical operations which are both expensive and often very painful.
Tooth decay in particular is a process that may accelerate if the concerned person is careless.
Some of the early symptoms of tooth decay are toothache, tooth sensitivity that may make eating cold beverages or ice-cream impossible, the later stages include visible holes in tooth also known as cavity, the surface of teeth may start to appear yellow due to the presence of plaque caused by high sugar consumption, pain when any type of stress is applied to the teeth like biting down on food.
All this is a sign of things getting worse for the people who ignore these symptoms. If facing any of these issues, you should see a dentist or at the very least start providing more care to your teeth.
THE CURIOUS CASE OF FLUORIDE:
Fluoride is one of the most effective ways to avoid tooth decay as it strengthens the tooth enamel and as an added bonus increases your bone density when used in a small amount, this may sound very good to the concerned, but the keywords here are: in small amounts.
When consumed in large amounts, it may actually weaken your bones and connective tissues in joints. It also may cause a condition called fluorosis which makes the teeth appear discolored and unattractive.
Fluoride is present in trace amounts in ground water in most areas, which by itself is not harmful when consumed, but it has been found to be in large amounts in some areas so it is recommended for you to be informed about the concentration of minerals present in the ground water of your area.
Let’s now discuss mouth washes, fluoride is present in mouthwashes available at any of the pharmaceutical shops near you, the thing to keep in mind is the concentration of this mineral present in the mouthwash you choose to use and if it impacts your health positively or negatively. For this information, you must consult your dentist and figure out which of these products is the best for you. Remember: the best decisions are informed ones.
Loose teeth are a common occurrence in children who have not grown permanent teeth, as baby/milk teeth are sometimes present in a child for longer than normal period. But if you are a fully grown adult, this may be a cause for concern as the problem may not be in your teeth, but in your gums, in this case we must consider the fact that a tree is only as strong as its roots.
Some of the symptoms related to unhealthy gums are: gums becoming tender, red, painful, or swollen, bleeding gums, especially when brushing, recession in gums or wider areas of teeth becoming visible, or teeth shifting out of place in weird ways.
Apart from all the dental care advices mentioned above, you should consider using invisalign aligners or if you value your cosmetic appearance consider using invisalign braces Somerset which are basically invisible to the naked eyes, these braces will help you in re-aligning your teeth in their original positions.
