Hi, it's Mia Armonde here to talk to you about family dentistry. As my small family grew into a large one, I found myself at the dental office on a regular basis. Every six months, the kids would go into the dentist for a cleaning or repairs to their teeth. During that time, I took an interest in the various ways the dental tools were evolving. Tools used in the dental industry have grown in leaps and bounds in the last few decades. For example, my kids went from hearing the dental drill to wearing headphones that completely canceled out the sound. Each time we go back into the dentist, I take a close look at the improvements that have arisen since the last visit. The results are astounding. I will cover my findings on this site, so you can also enjoy the improvements to dental tools and techniques.
Practicing good oral health and restoring any permanent damage to your teeth are both good ways to keep your smile and appearance in good condition. As you age, oral decay can occur and tooth loss can result in permanent jawbone loss. Here are two tips to help you prevent and repair oral decay and gum inflammation, and how to restore missing teeth to prevent further bone loss.
Heal Your Teeth and Gums
The health of your diet can affect the health of your teeth as well. Eating the right types of foods can either increase the health of your teeth or allow them to become weak and prone to decay. Foods that contain high amounts of phytic acid actually slow and block your body's absorption of teeth-healthy minerals and nutrients to cause them to become weakened.
Foods high in phytic acid includes beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, and grains. The phytic acid in these foods attaches to the phosphorous, magnesium, and calcium you eat and blocks your body from absorbing them, which causes your body to be lacking in these nutrients. Your body ends up pulling these nutrients from your teeth to help keep your body functioning properly, which, in turn, weakens your teeth. To overcome this occurrence, it is best to avoid these types of foods as much as possible, and supplement your diet with vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous supplements to boost their levels in your body to fight off even the slightest levels of phytic acid in your diet.
You can also use coconut oil to practice oil pulling on a daily basis to remove toxins and bacteria from your mouth that are for tooth decay and gum inflammation. When you first begin getting ready in the morning and before you eat breakfast, place a spoonful of coconut oil into your mouth and swish it around in your mouth and through your teeth for several minutes. Spit the oil out when you are finished and brush your teeth, as usual.
Replace With Dental Implants
If your oral decay has gone too far to stop it and it has resulted in tooth loss, it is important to replace the lost tooth. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone does not receive the stimulation it needs to continue blood flow and keep bone density and your bone can begin to atrophy. This can result in loss of your facial structure as well.
Restoring the stimulation with the installation of dental implants restores your smile and appearance, makes it easier to eat, and protects your jaw from bone loss. Your dentist would install a metal screw implant into your jawbone, then attach a tooth crown onto the implant that looks like your real tooth. The implant permanently will fuse to your bone, making the implant permanent.Share
