The best ways to keep your teeth healthy:
  • Observe proper brushing habits – Make sure you’re brushing your teeth at least twice daily. If you can, try to brush after every meal, but twice a day is the minimum. You should also make sure you’re brushing properly, because even if you brush three times a day, if you’re using ineffective techniques, your teeth just won’t get clean.
  • Floss – Check out these handy tips on flossing, and make sure you floss at least once a day. Plaque can easily get stuck in between teeth where it’s hard for a toothbrush to reach. This plaque can cause tooth decay and even bad breath, so keep your smile and your friends happy by flossing regularly.
  • Schedule regular cleanings – No matter how well you brush and floss, plaque will build up over time. The best way to get rid of this build-up and keep your teeth strong and healthy is to see your dentist at least once a year, if not twice. This will help to prevent all kinds of things from cavities to gum disease, and even if you do have a cavity, your dentist will be more likely to catch it early on if you see him or her on a regular basis.

How to tell if you have a cavity:

It doesn’t always take a dentist to discover a cavity. If you have a cavity that has been developing for a while, here are a few symptoms that will alert you to the issue:

Pain – If you experience localized pain in one tooth, that can be a sign of a cavity, especially if you experience the pain while you are eating sweets or sugary foods. If the pain occurs without you even touching the tooth, or you have a toothache that incites a fever, it’s best to see your dentist right away.

Sensitivity – Sensitivity while eating cold or hot foods is another sign that you might have a cavity. In this situation, you will probably feel a bit of pain when your tooth comes in contact with the cold or hot food.

Bad Breath – Since cavities are really just decaying teeth, they can lead to the unfortunate possibility of bad breath. They invite more bacteria to the bad tooth, which generally causes odor. So, if you brush your teeth regularly and still have bad breath, a cavity might be the culprit.

Darkening or Hole in Tooth – If your tooth seems to be darker than the rest, or if you can see a hole in it, you definitely have a cavity. You’ll want to schedule an appointment to get that filled as soon as possible. The quicker you get in, the more likely you’ll be able to keep the tooth with just a filling, instead of having it completely removed.

Reasons for tooth loss:

Sometimes our teeth fall out. The question is, why do they do it, and how can we fix it?

Congenital absence – This is just a medical way of saying that the tooth didn’t exist in the first place. You may have had a baby tooth that stayed in for much longer than the others, but once it fell out, no adult tooth came in to replace it. That’s probably because it just wasn’t there.

Trauma – Probably the most common way teeth fall out is as a result of trauma. Whether you tripped and fell, got hit in the face during a sporting event, or took a punch in the boxing ring, any kind of trauma can cause teeth to chip and even fall out.

Dental Diseases – Extreme cases of some dental diseases, like periodontitis (gum disease) can cause teeth to fall out. When gums become severely infected, they lose their ability to hold and support your teeth, causing them to fall out. Cavities are another cause of tooth loss. If a cavity is too big, your tooth may just fall out, or a dentist may recommend you have it removed and replaced.


What happens when you do lose a tooth?

If you’re a kid, it’s not a problem. Your adult teeth should grow right in. But if you’re an adult, it’s likely another story. Depending on what tooth or teeth you have lost, there are different solutions. Sometimes, you might just need a bridge, but if you’ve lost many teeth you may alternatively need dentures. At Mogren Dental, we can advise you on what course of action is right for you, and additionally we can perform the procedure, right in our office.

Tips to keep your teeth white:
  • Proper Oral Hygiene – We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again, a proper oral hygiene regimen is the best way to keep those pearly whites, well, pearly. Make sure you’re brushing and flossing regularly, and that should do the bulk of the work.
  • Avoid Foods that Stain – There are certain foods and drinks that do more damage to your teeth’s brightness than others. Coffee, red wine, berries, juice, anything that has a lot of color, or that would stain a white t-shirt is likely to stain your teeth. If you can steer away from these, and choose other alternatives, that’s the best way to stave off stains.
  • Rinsing or Brushing – While it’s impossible to avoid every food that might stain your teeth, it is a good idea to rinse your mouth or brush your teeth immediately after consuming them. This will remove the stains as quickly as possible, and give you the best chance at keeping your teeth shiny white.
  • Whitening products – As you know, there are tons of whitening products on the market. From whitening kits to whitening mouthwash, these are all great options to whiten your teeth at home. You will want to practice caution, however, because some of these methods can destroy the enamel on your teeth, and cause more harm than good.
  • Regular Dentist Visits – The best way to get rid of built up stains and plaque is to see your dentist regularly. You might consider seeing him/her twice a year for a cleaning that will remove the plaque and stains that are too hard to get with a toothbrush or flossing. Additionally, most dentists, like Mogren Dental, offer a professional whitening service that will get your teeth right back where you want them.
