Replacing Dental Fillings: When is it Necessary?

Dentistry is becoming progressively better as computers allow for 3D mapping of patients’ mouths and newer materials become available for replacing dental fillings. In decades past, it was very common for people to require full or partial sets of dentures in later years of life. Foods such as bleached sugar and acidic drinks like soda, juices, and even regular spring water, can soften and break down the enamel of teeth.

Brushing overly aggressively or failing to brush and floss properly can lead to the build-up of cavity-causing bacteria. These bacteria and acids increase your risk for cavities. Aside from diet and hygiene habits, genetics also play a critical factor in determining how much trauma your teeth will endure. Here, at Midway Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we have the tools and training to keep your smile shining for a lifetime.

What is Oral Cancer?

Aside from acquiring cancer from HPV, men are the ones most at risk. Men who are fifty-five years or older that drink heavily and use tobacco are the highest risk group. Twice as many men will develop oral cancers than women. Poor diet and lifestyle factors can contribute to the increased risks of oral cancer. Poor hygiene may also contribute to increased risk of cancers. It is unclear whether the vaccine for the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus also prevents the cancers associated with infection.

Do You Have Sinus Pressure or a Toothache?

It’s possible that sinus inflammation or an infection can lead to a toothache, especially in your upper back teeth. The reason these teeth are most commonly affected is because your sinuses are closest to them. If you’ve been dealing with a toothache that doesn’t seem to be going away, you may want to book an appointment with your dentist. You may also need to troubleshoot an unrelated problem that could be causing a toothache.

Learn how Dental Checkups Impact Your Health and why they are Essential!

It’s common knowledge that regular dental checkups are critical to maintaining good oral health. These checkups can detect early signs of gum disease, cavities, and alignment issues that may warrant a referral to an orthodontist. However, these very dental checkups can also point to other health problems, not necessarily dealing with the oral cavity.

In an article featured in the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, which included an excerpt from the Surgeon General’s Report on Oral Health, concluded that there is a distinct correlation between oral health and diseases of the body. Of course, regular dental visits, along with brushing and flossing, will contribute to a beautiful smile, but it can also mitigate the likelihood of developing heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases.
