  • Plaque contains bacteria, which produces acids that attack your tooth enamel and can damage your gums and create cavities. (
  • A cracked tooth can take many forms, from shallow craze lines (cracks only in the outer surface of the tooth) limited to the outer surface of the tooth enamel to fractures that extend through the chewing surface of the tooth and into the root. (
  • Unlike skins or bones, the tooth enamel, which forms the hard surface of a tooth, does not regenerate itself once damaged. (
  • Dental therapy that regenerates the tooth enamel rather than drilling the decayed part is the ultimate approach to therapy which every dentist in the world should seek. (
  • This synthetic enamel not only repairs teeth but also protects teeth from cavity at the same time. (
  • 2) Apply the synthetic enamel paste to the decayed part of the tooth, and allow it to act for 15 minutes. (
  • 3) Wipe off the paste from the tooth surface of the dental enamel, and wash in water, then dry. (

  • In addition to gum disease, plaque build-up also affects the protective enamel surface on your teeth, leading to cavities. (
  • The structure of a tooth and even the amount of enamel, for example, hint at what the teeth are adapted to eat. (
  • Usually, sensitive teeth are a result of the enamel being worn away from the tooth so that the dentin is exposed. (
  • In some patients, tooth damage is caused and the enamel worn away because they grind their teeth in their sleep. (

  • Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by tooth decay. (
  • The development of tooth-colored fillings has provided dentist and patients with a safer and more attractive alternative to silver amalgam fillings. (
  • By precisely matching tooth-colored composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, a skilled cosmetic dentist is able to provide you with white fillings that are virtually invisible. (
  • Composite resin fillings are more pleasing to the eye but are more expensive than dental amalgam fillings. (

  • Learn about composite and silver dental fillings, including the benefits and side effects associated with each material, before you decide to have your smile restored with this cosmetic dentistry treatment. (
  • Composite fillings, also known as white or tooth-colored fillings, have replaced the need for silver amalgram material when filling in areas of teeth that have been affected by tooth decay and cavities. (
  • The majority of Americans are now choosing to have old silver fillings replaced and new cavities filled with composite solutions despite the fact that tooth colored fillings are more expensive than silver fillings. (
  • silver fillings actually weaken the tooth because the metal can expand and contract based on temperature changes, making the tooth more prone to breakage. (
  • Dentists do not have to remove as much of your natural tooth structure when prepping it for the composite fillings, whereas the hole required for silver fillings is significantly larger. (
  • White fillings improve the health of teeth without marring their appearance with dark fillings. (
  • Since composite, or tooth-colored fillings, were developed and made available to consumers in the 1990s, dentists and patients have come to prefer composite filler materials over silver amalgram fillers for a range of reasons. (
  • However, some patients find that silver fillings are sufficient and dentists do still use this material to treat teeth damaged by decay. (
  • While cracks may occur in any type of tooth, they are most common in molars, teeth with large fillings, and teeth that have had multiple fillings. (
  • Most dental insurance does cover fillings, crowns and root canals at some percentage. (

  • Also, older fillings often deteriorate and allow bacteria to accumulate, resulting in more tooth decay. (
  • For 70 bucks a year, you get dental insurance, which has been covering about 50% of my fillings' costs. (
  • The first data on dental fillings that can actively repair tooth decay is presented by Professor Robert Hill. (
  • This data, indicating smart repair of tooth decay, prolonging the life of composite fillings and reducing the need for mercury based amalgams indicates a significant step forward in tooth restorative materials. (
  • Professor Hill explains that while current dental fillings include inert materials, the data on the new bioactive glass composite shows that it interacts positively with the body providing minerals that replace those lost to tooth decay. (
  • Research in the US suggests this will potentially prolong the life of fillings and slow secondary tooth decay because the depth of bacterial penetration with bioactive glass fillings was significantly smaller than for inert fillings. (
  • Using this type of bioactive glass composite to fill cavities eliminates the need to use mercury based amalgam by offering aesthetic white fillings which help heal the tooth. (
  • While small chips are not likely to cause much discomfort, they can be corrected with tooth-colored fillings, which will prevent the chip from cutting your lips or tongue. (

  • Move aside dental issues such as tooth decay, cavities and dental brittleness, regular care of the oral cavity is important for a number of other reasons. (
  • Sometimes, in cases of extreme damage of the tooth due to cavities, crown treatment is no longer possible because there is not enough tooth material left to support the tooth. (
  • Tooth decay - also called cavities or dental caries - can happen to anyone but it is a particularly common problem for children and young adults. (
  • Left untreated, dental cavities can become infected and eventually, tooth decay can result in tooth loss. (
  • However, without treatment, cavities can become larger and eventually compromise the sensitive nerves and delicate blood vessels within the tooth. (
  • Starches and sugars - also known as carbohydrates - are the kinds of foods most likely to cause tooth decay and cavities. (
  • Sticky foods also promote cavities because they adhere to the surface of your teeth and encourage bacterial activity. (
  • Gum damage exposes the roots of the teeth to excess plaque, making them more vulnerable to cavities. (
  • Most cavities are found when they are small, during regular dental checkups . (
  • Avoiding decay and connecting any problematic incident (i.e. cavities), will make teeth chipping less likely. (
  • Unfortunately, putting off dental treatment can only make the problem worse and you may ultimately face tooth loss if you ignore symptoms or skip your regular dental checkups. (
  • Dental plaque can lead to periodontal disease. (
  • However, periodontal disease, a disease of the supporting tissue around the tooth, can be so severe that the teeth loosen and fall out. (
  • Dental stem cells are being researched for a wide range of potential regenerative applications , and have successfully been used to regrow jawbone and treat periodontal disease. (
  • Disease is generally tooth decay or periodontal disease [gum disease] but there are other categories including cancer and various neoplasm's of the jaw that may result in tooth loss. (

  • Too often, patients suffer with the instability and discomfort of dentures, or the embarrassment of a missing tooth," explains Dr. Gedeon. (
  • There are three main options to talk about with your dentist: Bridges, dental implants, and dentures. (
  • Dentures are often called "false teeth. (
  • Dentures may be the best option if many teeth need replacing. (
  • The replacement teeth of dentures attach to a pink, usually plastic base that you slip into place. (
  • That can be used as a base that supports artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures, said Dr. Ravi Agarwal , an oral and maxillofacial surgeon at MedStar Washington Hospital Center . (
  • Patients of varying ages come to see Dr. Agarwal for dental implants, from teens who are naturally missing some teeth to 75-year-olds who have had dentures and would like to better taste food, smile and chew. (

  • They found that the group with both natural teeth and partial dentures had a lower risk of CVD mortality than the group with all natural teeth. (
  • The group with partial and full dentures had a higher risk of CVD mortality than those who had full dentures only or with very few opposing natural teeth. (
  • At Aspen Dental practices, this is our promise that you'll get your money back if you're not happy with your dentures. (
  • Because of some of the limitations of dental bonding, some dentists view it as best suited for small cosmetic changes, for temporary correction of cosmetic defects, and for correction of teeth in areas of very low bite pressure (for example, front teeth). (
  • For those interested in the service, Store-A-Tooth makes it easy for patients and their dentists to collect teeth removed during normal dental procedures, such as when baby teeth come loose, wisdom teeth are extracted, or teeth are pulled for orthodontia. (
  • By joining the Store-A-Tooth provider network and informing patients about this new opportunity to bank their family's stem cells, dentists can be at the forefront of regenerative medicine and dentistry. (
  • In fact, today dentists have a slew of alternatives to traditional braces when it comes to helping patients straighten their teeth. (
  • Clear aligners are one of the best options for adult patients who want straighter teeth," according to Dr. Lou Shuman, DDS, an orthodontist based in Bethesda, Maryland, who has trained thousands of dentists and orthodontists across the country in the technique. (
  • In addition, only about 38 percent of dentists participate in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program, according to the American Dental Association, which means that care is also hard to come by for the more than 74 million people enrolled in those programs . (
  • Rather than add a new category of providers, says Jane Grover, director of the Counsel for Advocacy for Access and Prevention at the American Dental Association, more should be done to connect underserved people seeking care with dentists ready to treat them. (
  • This can be accomplished through outreach by community health workers, and improved reimbursements for dental services under Medicaid, which in turn would increase the number of dentists participating in the program," she says. (
  • Plus, she adds, data from the American Dental Association's Health Policy Institute indicates the number of dentists will continue to grow through 2035. (

  • Most of us renew coverage this coming January, and if we decide not to renew, our local dentists will get the leverage they need to get an agreement with Delta Dental that makes sense for the community. (
  • Our scientists and dentists at Queen Mary University of London replaced the inert tooth filling materials with our new bioactive glass," explained Professor Hill. (
  • One of the issues for dentists is that sensitive teeth can have lots of different causes, so identifying and treating the problem is often a different process for each patient. (
  • As the morning went on three more volunteer dentists, dental assistants, students and hygienists joined for the main event ‒ the extractions. (
  • Each patient was numbed in a dental chair before they were sent into an assembly line of dentists waiting to remove their teeth. (
