#Fillings are more often required in the #molar (back) teeth where #decay rates are higher. The need for fillings due to #toothdecay can be eliminated by correctly cleaning your #teeth and maintaining a #healthydiet. Regular #dentalhealth check-ups will make sure any problems are identified and treated early.

The types of #filling material used by your #dentist may include:

#Whitefillings

Tooth-coloured (white) fillings have been used in front #teeth for cosmetic reasons for many years. Recent improvements in filling materials for back #teeth mean these are now more affordable and widely used as an alternative to dental amalgam.

#Silverfillings (dental amalgam)

#Dentalamalgam (‘silver filling’) is an inexpensive and highly durable material commonly used for filling #teeth. Modern #dentalamalgam is a metal alloy that is generally made up of mercury, silver and tin, with small amounts of copper and zinc.

The role of calcium, vitamin D and phosphorus in maintaining #healthyteeth
#Calcium #VitaminD and #Phosphorus all play a vital role in the formation and maintenance of #healthyteeth and #gums in both #children and #adults.

#Calcium plays a role in making the #jawbones healthy and strong to hold the #teeth in place. However, calcium needs phosphorus to maximise its bone-strengthening benefits. Children’s #teeth need adequate calcium and phosphorus to form a hard structure during growth.

Vitamin D regulates the body’s balance of calcium and phosphorus and can promote absorption. Vitamin D can also help to decrease inflammation of #gums which is associated with #periodontal (gum) disease.

#Osteoporosis is a common disease where bones become brittle due to less #bonedensity. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 54 million #Americans are living with #osteoporosis and a low bone mass. While #osteoporosis has a wide range of complications, it is believed to progress #periodontitis according to the US National Library of Medicine.

Osteoporosis is typically first diagnosed when the disease has caused so much #bonedensityloss that it leads to a fracture or break. The #dentist is often the first person to suspect #osteoporosis in a #patient.

When the #gum you choose is full of #sugar it can actually drastically increase your chances of getting a #cavity. If you already are suffering from TMD or TMJ, #chewinggum can make the symptoms of these conditions worse as well. Some of the #sugaredflavours that have come out lately taste great but can be quite a detriment on the healthy condition of your #teeth.

Some gum flavours that are enriched with sweeteners like aspartame have been linked to cancer. Many are aware of these issues, but the way that products are marketed these days, you can stumble across something that you think is great for you, but don't know the hazards of unless you read the label. If you have recently had work such as #crowns #bridges or #fillings they could potentially be loosened or broken by #chewinggum of the very sticky variety.

After a walk in at #WestWoodDentalEsthetics and the formulation of a game plan to correct the #crossbite many use #braces as a preferred method of fixing the problem.

One common method is with ClearCorrect #braces they are not as easy to notice and are constructed from plastic.

A mould is taken of your #mouth, and then a comfortable fit is designed for optimum restructuring and riddance of the #crossbite.
When you arrive #ourdentist that will help you, make sure to let them know about any jaw, head, or neck pain that you have been experiencing. Many patients can develop severe migraines right away, and this can also be in conjunction with a TMJ issue, or grinding of the #teeth.

What causes #babybottletooth decay?

This occurs most often in the #upperfrontteeth but others are not immune. Research has shown that #drinks that contain #sugar are among the most common causes. It has long been a tradition to put babies to bed with a bottle or use a bottle as a pacifier.

#Toothdecay begins with #cavity causing #bacteria that is passed from the mother to the infant. The #bacteria is usually passed through saliva, and can also occur when the mother puts the baby’s feeding spoon directly in her #mouth or cleans a pacifier using her #mouth.

Even though the stats are debated by many, some say that if an #infant or #toddler does not receive an adequate amount of fluoride, they are prone to this form of #toothdecay.

Advantages in #Invisalign quite a lot for #patients. #DrkaivanKiai & team at #WestwoodDentalEsthetics use #Invisalign to bring your set of #teeth to #regularsize and #arrangement. This is a special kind of aligner that doesn’t make use of wires and braces and instead is having a transparent colour that suits the teeth.

When put over the #teeth inside the #oralcavity, it appears as if nothing is fitted. So, you can freely #smile without fearing that others may see that you are getting your #teethfixed.
