Plaque and tartar build-up can result in serious periodontal issues. Unfortunately, even with proper flossing and brushing, it is not possible to remove all the bacteria, deposits, and debris from gum pockets. At Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental, we use dental prophylaxis, a professional teeth cleaning procedure, to keep your oral cavity in proper condition and prevent gum disease.
Dental prophylaxis is a thoroughou, effective teeth cleaning procedure. It is an important dental treatment that stops the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. Our dentists recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice per year as a preventative measure. This procedure helps in tartar removal and identifying health issues while restoring your smile and improving your overall health.
Bad breath is experienced by everyone once in a while, but if it occurs daily, then you need to find a solution. Generally, it is caused by the buildup of bacteria on the surfaces of teeth, gums, and tongue. These are the odour-producing bacteria that accumulate in your mouth when you don’t’ brush or floss properly. Foods such as onions and garlic can also contribute to bad breath as they have pungent oils that come out through your mouth. Our dentists will help you maintain oral health with proper brushing and cleaning tips. We also check to see if you may have a medical issue such as gum diseases or some other major oral problem.
Sensitive teeth are a kind of persistent pain and discomfort that can occur when you drink or eat something sweet, sour, and hot or cold. It may occur in a tooth or an entire set of teeth, depending on the severity of the problem. One example when tooth sensitivity may occur is when the enamel that is the outer layer of the tooth wears out, the tooth becomes exposed causing tooth sensitivity. At Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental, we will help you diagnose the cause of your tooth sensitivity and together with you come up with a treatment plan to give you relief from tooth sensitivity. This problem can occur in both adults and children if they don’t brush or floss properly. Children with a higher intake of sugary substances and poor dental hygiene are prone to sensitivity. Our dental team will work together with you and guide you and your kids on the path to healthy teeth and gums.
Dry mouth is a condition when your mouth does not have enough saliva and leaves a dry feeling in them. It can occur due to medication, aging, cancer therapy, tobacco/ alcohol use. Other health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, fungal infection, autoimmune diseases, snoring and breathing with your mouth open also can contribute to dry mouth. Keeping your mouth lubricated with chewing gum, sugar-free foods, and trying a mouthwash designed for dry mouth are several ways to manage the symptoms. Schedule a consultation with our dental team to create a plan to help manage your symptoms. Regular visits to the dentist also help in the early identification of oral problems and lead to better management of your overall health.
