Brushing and Flossing on a regular basis is a great practice! But is just that practice good enough for your mouth? Some teeth need a little more attention. Did you know it is recommended that you visit the dentist AT LEAST one time every six months? Being on top of your oral care and visiting your doctor on a regular basis will also help you avoid cavities.
Avoiding sweets and sugary drinks is a great practice to avoid cavities, but did you know when you eat, left over food particles are left in your mouth. After eating, rinse your mouth out with a glass of water to remove food particles from remaining in your mouth and causing cavities.
What is a Cavitron?
Cavitron is a hygienist tool, which uses high frequency sound waves to clean teeth. The high frequency sound waves helps to vibrate tarter and dirt off the teeth, removing plaque buildup around the gums. The Ultrasonic tools help destroy pathogens which are often implicated in periodontal disease.
Lower powered scalers remove plaque but are not efficient in removing heavy calculus, which is why Dental Nation, Inc. strives to use tools including the Ultrasonic Cavitron that will give each patient quality care. No anesthesia is necessary, as teeth cleanings with the Cavitron are virtually pain-free.
What is Gingivitis?
Gingivitis is a disease that can be caused by bacteria or plaque build up. It can often be a disease of viral origin, can be often genetic as well. Signs of gingivitis are the following:
Gums that are tender or painful to touch
Red or purple gums, bright in coloring
Gums that are swollen
Gingivitis is one of the most common gingival diseases, which is caused by build up of plaque around and between the teeth and near the gum lines.
Good oral hygiene such as regular brushing, flossing and standard cleaning appointments with our hygienist can help prevent gingivitis. Here at Dental Nation, we not only take care of your dental needs, we teach you how to form healthy hygiene care.
If you believe that you have gingivitis, contact Dental Nation, Inc. to make an appointment in our office today. Untreated gingivitis can progress to the gum disease periodontitis, which is a much more serious condition that will eventually lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
A crown is a cemented porcelain fixture which is created to match the coloring of your tooth and fit over your tooth. Dr. Black may suggest that you need a crown for the following reasons:
- If a weak tooth needs protection from fracturing or has already begun to fracture
- When there is not enough tooth left for a large filling to be replaced
- If a bridge needs to be attached
Crowns can cover:
Poorly shaped teeth
Teeth that have had a root canals
A bridge, like a crown, is a porcelain prosthetic fixture used for patients with a gap or missing tooth. Usually a bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. When you have missing teeth, this can often lead to an imbalanced bite, thus leading to gum disease or TMJ (temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
Like a bridge on land spans one land mass over water to another land mass, a dental bridge spans from one tooth over a place where the tooth or teeth were missing to another tooth. A dental bridge is cemented permannt

surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded
to the front of the teeth changing their appearance.

Veneers are usually constructed from porcelain or plastic and glued to the front of your teeth.
