15 Things You Didn’t Know About Teeth

suprising tooth facts Glendale

  1. Children’s teeth are soft until about age 10.
  2. A tooth with a crown can get a cavity.
  3. Your gum tissue is as vital as your teeth.
  4. Some prescription drugs can increase your risk of tooth decay.
  5. Some home faucet water filters remove fluoride.
  6. 19 percent of children between the ages of 2 and 19 have untreated cavities.
  7. Heartburn can be harmful for teeth.
  8. Allergies can cause tooth grinding.
  9. Dried fruit is just as bad for teeth as sticky candy.
  10. Tooth enamel cannot repair itself, though dentin and cementum (the substance that surrounds the tooth root) are capable of partial regeneration.
  11. A Harvard-led team recently used low-powered lasers to activate stem cells and stimulate the growth of teeth in rats and human dental tissue in a lab. http://www.businessinsider.com/laser-stem-cell-tooth-tissue-regeneration-2014-5#ixzz3fzlosJDMTooth
  12. There are about 300 types of bacteria in your mouth.
  13. Chewing sugarless gum after meals can help remove food particles on your teeth. You still need to brush, but if you can’t brush immediately after meals, sugarless gum can help keep your teeth clean.
  14. Cavities often don’t cause pain until they have reached the root and nerve of the tooth. Visit your dentist regularly to prevent cavities or at least to detect them when they are small.
  15. Bone recession can cause tooth loss even if no decay is present.

Afraid Of The Dentist? Sedation Dentistry Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your Glendale Sedation Dentist Can Help If you live near Glendale and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in Glendale. Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, sleep dentistry, or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for nervous cosmetic and restorative dental patients in the Glendale area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for Glendale patients, and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivity;
  • Fear of needles;
  • A powerful gag reflex;
  • Difficulty controlling body movement;
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits;
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling – such as a root canal, tooth implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction –  call On Call Urgent Dental Care – Emergency Dentistry at 480-525-8120 for information about sedation dentistry.

Unexplained Headaches Or Jaw Pain?

unexplained jaw pain

Hello! We are OnCall Urgent Dental Care – Emergency Dentistry in Glendale. Today’s post focuses on malocclusion, or bad bite.

Malocclusion is the dental term for a problem in the way your top and bottom teeth come together. The ideal bite is when the upper teeth are slightly forward of the lower teeth. You have probably heard of “overbites” and “underbites” but the two arches can be misaligned in many other ways as well. Crowded teeth can also cause a bad bite, as well as the opposite situation – teeth that are too far apart.

If the misalignment is very slight, there are often no related troubles. However, if the malocclusion is moderate to severe, the patient is at risk for many other health issues such as difficulty chewing and speaking, headaches, hearing problems, increased decay, jaw pain, and gum disease.

The domino effect of these troubles can get pretty serious. For example, chewing difficulty can trigger ulcers and gum disease increases the risk of stroke and heart disease. Consider also how these problems can impact a patient’s emotional well-being and power to perform their job.

Putting health issues aside, these problems can get pretty pricey to treat.

There are several effective treatments for malocclusion, but first you need a diagnosis. If you suspect that you have a misaligned bite, I hope this post has given you some good reasons to speak with our general dentists at OnCall Dental UrgentCare. Call 480-525-8120 to schedule a consultation and exam.

Tooth Brushing Basics For Healthy Smiles In Glendale

Glendale Teeth Bleaching Why should everyone in Glendale brush at least twice a day? Let’s take a look at why this is so important.

Brushing and flossing is the best way to prevent decay.

Brushing with fluoride toothpaste and carefully flossing removes the food from our teeth and inhibits the build up of plaque. If we let food stay on our teeth, the starches in the food will mix with the plaque. This nasty mixture forms an acid which immediately starts drilling into the enamel to form cavities. Brushing can’t get all the spaces between your teeth, so you’ve got to floss also.

Brushing and flossing keeps gums and bone healthy.

If you let gum disease go untreated, you can lose teeth that are cavity-free!

The progression of gum disease (gingivitis) goes like this:

  1. Plaque build-up irritates gums.
  2. Irritated gums pull away from teeth.
  3. Bacteria multiplies in the spaces between the gum and tooth.
  4. The bone holding the tooth is eaten by the bacteria.
  5. Say goodbye to the tooth.

The good news is that gingivitis can be reversed if detected early.

Smokeless Is Not Harmless For Glendale Tobacco Chewers

Smokeless Is Not Harmless For Glendale Tobacco ChewersHello Glendale dental friends. Today’s topic is ‘The Dangers Of Smokeless Tobacco’.

Cigarette sales at most Glendale stores have decreased in the past decade, but some Glendale tobacco consumers have switched to smokeless products.

There is a common misconception in the Glendale area (especially among teens) that smokeless tobacco is harmless. This is absolutely not true. Regardless of the specific type: spit tobacco, snuff, chew, or pinch, this form of tobacco is as deadly as old-school cigarettes.

At On Call Urgent Dental Care – Emergency Dentistry, we encounter serious consequences of smokeless tobacco use because many occur in the mouth. Oral cancer, mouth lesions, gum disease and tooth decay are the most common dental problems caused by smokeless tobacco in Arizona.

Keeping a pinch between your cheek and gum all day is worse than keeping an all-day sucker tucked in there. The tobacco contains almost as much sugar as the candy but delivers dangerous chemicals as an added bonus. The dangers are two-fold: the tobacco erodes the teeth and also causes the gums to pull away from teeth.

Precancerous Mouth Lesion Screening in Arizona: Mouth lesions are painful sores that could eventually become cancer. If smokeless tobacco use is stopped, the lesions usually disappear within a year for Arizona dental patients.

Oral Cancer in Glendale: Smokeless tobacco use in Glendale increases the risk for several types of life-threatening cancers including those of the mouth, gums, lips, tongue, and throat.

Oral cancers can be as deadly as lung cancer and usually require surgery. If the Arizona patient is fortunate and the cancer is successfully removed with surgery, the collateral damage to the face, neck, or jaw is not pretty.

These are the main dental risks of smokeless tobacco. Moreover, I should also mention two other biggies: addiction and heart disease, though those are topics for another day.

At On Call Urgent Dental Care – Emergency Dentistry in Glendale, we perform oral cancer screenings and mouth lesions examinations. To receive more specifics, or schedule an appointment, call 480-525-8120.

6 Ways Dental Crowns Restore Smiles

cost of dental crowns Glendale

Dental crowns have been around a long time, but they continue to play an important role in Glendale cosmetic dentistry. A dental crown, often called a cap, covers the visible part of the tooth.

Dental crowns are used for several problems common among Glendale cosmetic dentistry patients:

An old crown that is damaged or ill-fitting
A broken tooth
A tooth with extreme decay
A tooth that has had a root canal
A tooth that is too small or misshapen
A tooth that prevents a proper bite

A dental crown serves both structural and aesthetic purposes. It protects a natural tooth from additional decay and damage while permitting normal function. In addition, a dental crown often prevents the need for an extraction and the bone loss that can occur with a missing tooth.

Glendale cosmetic dentistry patients who get a dental crown should not assume that the tooth is now invincible. Crowns need daily cleaning and flossing just like natural teeth. The remaining tooth structure just around the gumline could still become decayed and the soft tissue around the crown is susceptible to gum disease. Chewing hard foods or using your teeth as a tool can cause a crown to crack or break. (Use scissors to open a stubborn plastic package – don’t bite and pull!) Your Glendale cosmetic dentist can advise you on caring for your new crown so that it will last as long as possible. Some of our Mesa patients have crowns that are still looking beautiful after ten years.

Wear a Crown in Glendale

Some Glendale residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.

Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Dentists will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created, however with CEREC same-day crowns there are no repeat office visits to finish a procedure.

Dental crowns have been used successfully in Glendale cosmetic dentistry for decades.

Many Glendale, Mesa, and Tempe dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.

If you think a dental crown may be right for you, check with your dentist. Or, if you are searching for quality dental care in the Glendale area, call us here at On Call Urgent Dental Care – Emergency Dentistry. We are currently accepting new patients at our state-of-the art, yet warm and comfortable dental offices in Tempe, Glendale, and Mesa.

Call us at 480-525-8120 and our welcoming staff can answer any questions you have about emergency dentistry in Glendale, veneers, enamel shaping, or any other cosmetic dental, general oral health, or dental financing questions.
