  • The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Dental Association recommend treating teething discomfort with gentle finger massage, and starting daily oral hygiene when teeth emerge. (
  • Yet, oral hygiene is crucial, especially because studies show special needs children are more likely than typical kids to have cavities and other dental problems. (
  • It is also important to practice proper oral hygiene for your child. (
  • Practice good oral hygiene. (
  • Be aware that the routine for oral hygiene/tooth brushing starts when the first tooth comes in. (
  • The tooth is a non-shedding surface, so biofilms can accumulate in great quantities when oral hygiene is not properly conducted, or when too much sugar is introduced. (
  • Our dietary choices and our oral hygiene practices are major players in the tooth decay tableau. (
  • Patients with good oral hygiene. (
  • Cats are susceptible to oral disease and complications when their dental hygiene is less than desirable. (
  • However, there are many people who take care of their teeth and practice good oral hygiene but still experience dental problems. (
  • If no gum problems are present before pregnancy, and good oral hygiene is practiced, the risk factor is low. (
  • However, if regular dental visits are not a priority and good oral hygiene is not practiced, then the chances increase for dental problems during pregnancy. (
  • It is very important with the onset of menopause, that regular dental check ups are maintained, along with good oral hygiene. (
  • Good oral hygiene applies whether all the teeth are present or if one wears dentures. (
  • However, adults who practice good dental hygiene every day and have a low risk of oral health problems may be able to go less frequently. (

  • Evidence suggests that a lack of fluoride can lead to tooth decay, even if a person takes care of their teeth otherwise. (
  • A recent review found that brushing and flossing do not prevent a person from getting cavities if they do not use fluoride. (
  • Remember to brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice per day for two minutes each time. (
  • The modules in week 2 describe basic dental anatomy including embryology of the oral cavity, oral functions, basic tooth structure, and clinical implications of disease. (
  • The back teeth are designed with grooves and ridges that help you chew food, but the down side is that these grooves and ridges can also collect tiny food particles, which can increase the risk of cavities and bacteria in plaque, which in turn can lead to gum disease . (
  • Mild or early gum disease often shows up as an intense red line and/or swelling along the teeth at the gumline. (
  • Here at Integrative Oral Medicine, Dr. Thompson and our highly trained team perform a very thorough cavity examination and provide comprehensive, customized treatment recommendations to assist in breaking the cycle of repeated tooth damage, costly repairs and possible further disease processes from this preventable infection. (
  • Gingivitis requires urgent treatment, since in the absence of adequate assistance, the disease can be complicated by periodontitis and lead to tooth loss. (
  • Tooth decay was considered an irreversible disease process - once a cavity started, the only remedy was to drill out the decay and fill the tooth with a restorative material. (

  • This is especially helpful on the molars (back teeth) because they are hard to reach and can be missed when brushing, allowing cavities to form. (
  • Supernumerary teeth are common in the maxillary anterior area (mesiodens) and the maxillary molar area (distomolars or fourth molars). (
  • Teeth begin digestion mechanically, Chewing ("mastication") breaks apart food, 2 sets of teeth, and the teeth are, Incisors for cutting, Canines "fangs" for tearing, and Premolars and molars for grinding 4. (
  • Babies are born without teeth, but grow a temporary set of twenty deciduous teeth (eight incisors, four canines, and eight molars) between the ages of six months and three years. (
  • The first twenty-eight adult teeth are fully erupted by the age of eleven to thirteen with the third molars, known as wisdom teeth, erupting in the back of the jaw several years later in early adulthood. (
  • Every bite forces food into the interface of the teeth to be chopped, while lateral motion of the jaw is used to grind food in the premolars and molars. (
  • Early childhood cavities, or ECC, can almost always be prevented. (
  • 4 Early contact with these bacteria and to other sugars, such as from frequent snacking or taking a bottle to bed, can lead to early childhood cavities and the need for extensive dental care at a young age. (

  • Until the 1970s, the cause of tooth decay continued to be a subject of debate, with some believing dietary deficiencies were the culprit and others focusing on oral bacteria. (
  • When sugars are not cleaned off your teeth, bacteria feeds on them and produces acids. (
  • The acids then combine with bacteria, food particles and saliva to form plaque, a sticky film that covers the teeth. (

  • In cats , TR lesions are most commonly seen at or above the gumline in teeth other than the canines/fang teeth (these teeth usually have lesions at or below the gumline only detectable on X-ray). (
  • In most animals, canines are the anterior-most teeth in the maxillary bone. (
  • The lower canine teeth (popularly called stomach teeth) are placed nearer the middle line than the upper, so that their summits correspond to the intervals between the upper canines and the lateral incisors. (
  • Upper deciduous canines also known as the baby tooth, typically erupt between ages of sixteen and twenty-two months and sheds between ten and twelve years. (
  • Lower deciduous canines typically erupt between ages of seventeen and twenty-two months and sheds between nine to twelve years Transposition (positional interchange of two adjacent teeth) is a development defect that most commonly found in the permanent canine, with the maxillary being more commonly seen than mandibular.
