Cracked Teeth Have Several Restorative Options
Posted on 4/10/2019 by Water's Edge Dental
Teeth can crack for a variety of reasons. You may bite down into a hard piece of candy or suffer oral trauma when playing sports. The injury can leave you with a crack that needs to be corrected. There are several different types of cracks, and when diagnosing the problem is the first step to finding the right restorative option. Treating a Craze Line CrackA craze line fracture is the least concerning of all the dental cracks. These are tiny cracks that only affect the enamel of the teeth. They are quite common among adult teeth, but the good news is that they are quite shallow. For the most part, they don't require treatment, unless you are concerned about the aesthetic aspect. Treating a Fractured Tooth CuspA fractured tooth cusp results when a piece of the chewing surface breaks off, sometimes around a filling. The pulp usually isn't damaged, but you may need a crown or a filling to correct the damage and to protect the remainder of the tooth. Treating a Full CrackIf your tooth has a vertical crack that extends toward the root, treatment is a necessity. With time, the crack can extend, and if it reaches the pulp you may need a root canal and a crown. Unfortunately, if the crack extends below the gum line, treatment isn't possible, and the best thing to do is to extract the tooth. Then, you'll need to consider options like a bridge or dental implant to replace the tooth. Maintaining healthy teeth is one way to minimize the risk of cracks. Make sure that you never chew on any hard, non-food items, and if you clench or grind your teeth, call our office to discuss bruxism treatment. Always wear a mouth guard when playing sports, and keep up with your regular dental exams in our office. Call us today to set up your next appointment....

Should Adults Ask About Dental Sealants, Too?
Posted on 3/25/2019 by Water's Edge Dental
You may remember getting dental sealants as a child, but if you think that sealants are only used for children, you'd be wrong. Adults can also benefit from dental sealants, which consist of plastic resin material that is placed onto the molars. The sealant is put onto the teeth in a liquid form before hardening under a UV light, and it protects the tooth against the buildup of plaque and tartar. Since these substances lead to decay and a host of other problems, dental sealants are beneficial at all ages. Protect Against Tooth DecayTooth decay can strike at any age, so you always need to be protected. Dental sealants can reduce the occurrence of decay, and they are especially useful if you are at a heightened risk for cavities. You may avoid fillings and other cavity-related procedures in the future if you invest in dental sealants today. Long-Term Teeth ProtectionIf you are looking for a long-term way to protect your teeth, dental sealants may be the solution for you. While they don't offer permanent protection, sealants can help to protect your teeth for about ten years. If you have a habit of clenching and grinding your teeth, you may need to have sealants reapplied more frequently. Avoid Food Buildup The molars feature deep grooves that allow you to chew up your food. However, this makes them susceptible to food buildup. Food particles can get caught in the crevices, and if not removed in a timely manner, cavities may develop. Dental sealants may be useful in teeth that have especially large grooves, preventing food and other debris from lodging in the space. Are you interested in dental sealants for yourself or for your child? Dental sealants are a great investment at any age. Call us today to set up your appointment and to learn more about dental sealants....

Reasons Your Teeth May Hurt When You Get Up In the Morning
Posted on 3/15/2019 by Water's Edge Dental
When you wake up, do you ever experience tooth pain? It is not an uncommon problem, but it also is something that you should not ignore. There are several different reasons why you might have teeth pain in the morning. Here are some of them. BruxismBruxism is more commonly known as teeth grinding. Some people grind their teeth during the day, but for other people it is a nighttime issue. You might grind your teeth and not even know that you do it! Nighttime bruxism can cause pain when you wake up. It can also damage your teeth. There are several different treatments for bruxism. The best treatment for your neighbor may not be the best treatment for you, so you need to make an appointment. Infection If you have an infection in one or more teeth or in your gums, you could wake up with mouth pain. If the infection does not go away within a day or so, you need to make an appointment so that we can treat it. Allergies and SinusIf you suffer from allergies or a sinus condition, that could cause pain. That is because it will settle when you stay in one place without moving for several hours. There could be a simple solution for this. Try sleeping on the other side or on your back. If you wake up in the middle of the night, change your position. Any pain that lasts for more than a couple of days needs to be checked out. Most of the time, there is a fairly simple reason why you have pain when you wake up, and there is also a solution. We want to make sure that there are no underlying issues that are more serious. We also want to make sure that you no longer live in pain....
