Keep your teeth in good condition as you age!

As we age, the condition of our oral health is even more important. Although the mouth undergoes some change as we age, losing your teeth does not have to be one of them. Teeth can generally be kept for a lifetime given proper maintenance.

Drinking tap water is beneficial for the teeth no matter what your age; fluoridation is common and helps to slow down cavities. Fluoride can also be easily found in most toothpastes and many mouthwashes.

If you have Diabetes, tooth decay can be more common than usual. Getting regular cleanings at the dentist is recommended to help recognize and stop tooth and gum diseases. Diabetes and oral health also connect in that treating gum disease can improve the management of blood sugar levels, but Diabetes also means a lower resistance to infection and increased oral healing times.

If you have lost your teeth, cleaning your dentures every day is a must for a healthy mouth. Washing dentures removes food from them in the same manner as it does for your normal teeth. Brushing your gums gently using a soft toothbrush before inserting your dentures is good for promoting circulation and removes plaque from surfaces in your mouth.

Having a proper diet can be a definite contributing factor to keeping your teeth as you age. Vitamins and minerals from vegetables and fruits are vital as well as drinking plenty of water. Eating snacks throughout the day can reduce the effectiveness of saliva and lead to tooth decay.

Getting older can mean that your gums might recede, and teeth can become yellowed or discolored (brown) with age. Whitening techniques as well as gum and mouth restoration can help combat those aspects of an older mouth.

Stopping Tooth Decay and Cavities 

Preventative treatment is definitely important in the modern oral health world. Tooth decay is a common problem that can be easily prevented with basic knowledge of good oral upkeep.
Most people have gone to the dentist to have a cavity filled, but understanding a few things about the teeth can stop you from having to deal with tooth decay.
Quick Tips for avoiding Tooth Decay:
  • Fluoride supplements or fluoridated municipal water can be helpful in maintaining the mineralization of the enamel. Even more quick and easy to use are fluoride-containing rinses and toothpastes, which can be easily worked into your daily oral care routine.
  • Many acidic foods can rapidly damage the tooth when left in the plaque for extended periods of time. Make sure to clean acidic and sugary food off your teeth, especially when sleeping.
  • Brushing your teeth two times a day is essential for good mouth and gum health. Before going to bed, pay special attention to cleaning your teeth well.
  • Chewing sugarless gum after a meal or snack can be beneficial in removing bits of food and sugars from the surface of your teeth. The physical act of chewing gum after a meal stimulates saliva production and scrapes the gums and teeth clean of small food particles.

The mouth and the effects of smoking

Smoking causes damage to many parts of your body, but sometimes we don’t realize the effect it can have on Oral Health. Smoking can cause periodontal disease, lengthen the healing time of the mouth, and increases the risk of oral cancer. Additionally, it causes bad breath, and the stains that accumulate from the tar are generally impossible to remove without help from a dentist.
Smoking can cause these problems in the mouth:
  • Discolored teeth
  • Irritation and swelling of the gums
  • Bone loss in the jaw
  • Extra buildup of tartar and plaque
  • More risk of oral cancer, gum disease, and periodontal disease
In addition to immediate benefits to your oral health, quitting smoking also reduces your risks high blood pressure, stroke, and lung cancer. Smokers who quit get to quickly see a whiter smile and better gum health.

Bacteria, Gums, and Impacted Wisdom teeth

Normally found in four groups of three, molars are sometimes accompanied by up to four wisdom teeth, or extra molars. It is possible to have more than or less than four, but most often there is one wisdom tooth behind each row of molars. Wisdom teeth develop much later in life than other teeth, often becoming ‘impacted’ or coming in at an odd angle, which usually leads to them being removed. Around a third of adults will never develop wisdom teeth.
Typically, impacted wisdom teeth are categorized into a few commonly found forms:
  • Mesioangular impaction, where the tooth is angled forward, accounts for half of all impacted wisdom teeth.
  • Vertical impaction is also common, happening when a wisdom tooth does not fully erupt through the gum.
  • Distoangular impaction and Horizontal impaction are the least common, being seen in only a small percentage of all wisdom teeth. These types of impaction are when the tooth is angled backwards or sideways, respectively.
Because of the abundant levels of bacteria in the mouth, it often leads to pericoronitis, an infection of the gum mostly occuring in young people. When a tooth partially erupts from the gum, it exposes a flap of tissue that can trap bacteria and lead to infection. Keeping up with oral hygiene is extra important while wisdom teeth are breaking through the gums.
Generally, wisdom teeth are extracted quickly and painlessly. For many people, wisdom teeth will threaten to be impacted and change the bite or position of other teeth, and are generally considered to be unneeded. Others may not have wisdom tooth problems, or may not grow the teeth at all.

If you or someone you know is having an issue with a wisdom tooth affecting dental work, teeth, or gums, call Dr. Bosque’s Dental Team at (912) 355-0555.

Healthy teeth, and the nutrients that build them
Keeping your teeth from becoming damaged requires basic dental upkeep, but there are many minerals and vitamins that affect your tooth and gum health too. In addition to flossing, brushing, and having regular dental checkups, your diet should be diverse enough to cover the usual nutritional needs of your teeth.
Vitamins A, C, and D are important to the health of your teeth, both for protecting and building them.
Vitamins A and D help to maintain and develop strong and healthy teeth. The antioxidant vitamin C helps to keep connective tissues and the gums healthy, helping the healing process of scapes or cuts in the mouth. Calcium is also important for the teeth, creating a strong jawbone and foundation for the teeth. In order to keep up your oral health, make certain that your diet has some sources of these vitamins, or foods that contain them.
The following is a list of common sources of vitamins A, C, and D:
  • Vitamin A: Find it in dark green vegetables, eggs, liver, and fortified dairy products. Also sweet potatoes, cheddar cheese, pumpkin, cantaloupe melon, apricot, and papaya.
  • Vitamin C: Find it in oranges, spinach, raspberries, gooseberries, plums, kale, garlic, and raw cabbage. Animal sources include raw liver, raw oysters, and cod roe. Vitamin C supplements are also an easy option.
  • Vitamin D: Find it in catfish, mackeral, tuna, eggs, and fish or vegetable vitamin D supplements. It is also added to many calcium supplements, as these vitamins are harder to find in common foods than vitamins C and A.
  • Calcium: Found in milk, soymilk (when calcium is added), nuts such as almonds, and sesame seeds. Because dairy is the most common calcium and vitamin D source, vegans or those who avoid dairy due to lactose intolerance may need to include blackstrap molasses, beans, figs, quinoa, collard greens, or okra.
Additionally, foods containing lots of sugar are generally not great for the teeth. Sticky substances like chocolates or caramels easily get stuck to tooth surfaces for extended periods of time, breaking down the tooth surface and causing cavities.

For additional information, or to schedule a consultation, call the dental office of Robert. A. Bosque Jr. DMD at 912-355-0555.

Plaque removal and the Biofilm of the mouth

Covering the entire surface of your teeth there exists a massive, harmless biosphere of many bacteria called a biofilm, or plaque. This biofilm is a diverse layer of bacteria colonies, which are drawn to the smooth texture of the tooth. Unlike almost all other cells in the body, your teeth do not shed and replace their cells, only shedding once as baby teeth. Around 25, 000 bacteria species may be present in the biofilm; it is speculated that the body allows plaque to build as a way of stopping large amounts of dangerous bacteria from building up on the same surface.
However, dental plaque doesn’t stay harmless for long. Initially, the plaque is soft enough to scrape or brush off, but past 10 days on the teeth, plaque becomes calculus, or tartar. Tartar is brittle and hard to remove, and while tartar and plaque are on the tooth, various fermentations and reactions caused by the bacteria produce acid that can cause cavities. Cavities are the primary danger of plaque and tartar buildup.
Saliva creates a perfect environment for bacteria to grow in, acting as a pH buffer and maintaining a pH of around 7. Nutrients are also provided in saliva, giving the bacteria a food source. In order to prevent cavities and damage from plaque buildup, brushing your teeth is essential- saliva cannot penetrate the surface of the biofilm to balance the acid level on teeth.
Here is a quick list of oral hygiene tips to reduce acidic buildup, plaque, tartar, and cavities:
  • Brushing your teeth (plaque removal)
  • Flossing
  • Tongue cleaning
  • Gum care
  • Foods that contain beneficial nutrients, such as fluoride, calcium, and phosphate.
  • Sugar-free gum chewing after a meal.
Regular teeth cleanings and checkups will remove tartar and plaque buildup more effectively than you can at home. Having a professional cleaning twice a year is recommended to properly remove built up tartar. Having a fluoride treatment is another common dental post-cleaning treatment that will help strengthen the teeth.

If you think you may have a cavity or want to ask about tooth cleanings, call the Savannah Dental Office of Dr. Bosque at 912-355-0555 today and schedule an appointment.

The damage of teeth grinding

Teeth grinding, or Bruxism, is the clenching, grinding, or biting of your teeth. It can happen during the day or night, on purpose or more involuntarily. Commonly found in children, nighttime grinding and chewing on the teeth can cause sensitivity and wear on baby teeth; when adults grind their teeth, the damage is more serious. The causes of teeth grinding are unclear, but sleeping habits, daily stress, and your bite can play a factor.
Chewing your teeth can cause the following symptoms:
A pounding, constant headache
Tooth erosion, cracked teeth
Fractured, loose teeth
Soreness of the teeth, gums, or jaws
Since it is more difficult to know about teeth grinding while asleep other issues may arise.
Symptoms can lead to temporomandibular joint problems (TMJ) after they affect the muscles and other structures around the jaw. Symptoms can also lead to worn down teeth, a misaligned bite, or any of a large list of jaw-related problems.
Treatments for Bruxism seek to reduce pain, reduce damage to the teeth, and reduce the time spent grinding or clenching your teeth. Mouth guards or appliances, such as splints, are encouraged for the prevention of long-term damage to the teeth.
If you are experiencing any of the warning signs of Bruxism (tooth grinding or clenching), call Dr. Robert A. Bosque Jr. DMD‎ at 912-355-0555 immediately and set up an appointment. There are a number of options readily available to resolve the issue, both for prevention and restoration. Mouthguards can help in preventing nighttime tooth chewing, while operation for crowns or bridges may be needed for teeth that have been severely injured.
While you’re waiting for your appointment, speedy fixes to ease pain include cutting back on alcohol and caffeine, applying ice or warm water to relieve soreness, relaxing and avoiding stress, and heating your face (with a warm washcloth or steam) to relax the jaw muscles before sleep.

Are Gold Fillings the best fillings?

Many people will only consider gold fillings. Others simply don’t like them at all. Where do you stand? Have you thought about the pros and cons of Gold fillings? Is there a time when you should spend that money and go for the gold?

The reality of it is that there are many options when it comes to what you put into your mouth. The choices are extremely personal and where one person might want a gold filling, the next one might opt for a porcelain veneer. With the wide variety of options from silver fillings to those made of gold, from porcelain veneers to perfectly matched crowns, you have many choices.

The first person to explore both the question and your options is yourself. What would make you feel great? Remember that your mouth is very personal to you and at the end of the day you are the person that has to live with your decision. Carefully explore what your options are as well as your preferences and ask your dentist for their opinion as well. Good luck with your decision!

Will I have to go to a specialist?

The term specialist refers to a situation where the needs are beyond normal. You, in fact, have “special” requirements to get the results you want in your dental treatment. The challenge is figuring out the difference between average dental care needs and those instances when we actually require treatment that can only be addressed by a specialist.
It can be very intimidating to consider more than average dental work. Many of us are afraid or stressed out about expressing a different need or desire. If we want a cosmetic change, a better smile or even something as simple as whiter teeth, it can feel uncomfortable to express what we want. Imagine how intimidating it might be if we need a complicated implant or had to have our receding gums treated through oral surgery?
You deserve to have the best possible care for whatever your needs or desires may be. In that regard, sometimes you may truly need a specialist with a higher level of training than your average family dentist. You should never feel afraid to ask questions and figure out what will give you the results you want. We hope you found this video helpful. We also hope that you always receive the best care for you, from specialist or general dentist alike.
Yours sincerely,

Do I need dentures? 

As we grow older, our bodies are naturally going to go through the process of aging with us. This aging process effects our mouth, gums and teeth as well. There may even be some tooth loss to accompany all of this change. Patients often ask us, are dentures my only choice?
The aging process can be taxing on the mouth. Not only may we lose a tooth or two, we may have other challenges such as gum disease or receding gums. What if you have leakage from old fillings that can lead to cavities and even infections? What if you have brittle teeth? These problems may, in fact, require the help and support of a specialist to correct.
The good news is that there are many options. Dentures are just one of those options and your dentist can explain the choices in detail to help you determine what is right for you. At the end of the day, being properly informed will help you make the best possible choice–and that is exactly what we want for you.

Are you accepting New Patients? 

Have you ever made a phone call to a dental office in search of treatment for yourself only to find out that the dentist was not accepting any patients? It’s a common occurrence and even though it may seem illogical, there are reasons that a dental office may have to implement this policy.
Absurd or not, it happens all the time.
Actually, dentists are very much like medical doctors. Their practices fill up with patients. They do not have the infrastructure to support additional patients and they have to stop the flow of new patients. Not until things slow down they are able to accept new patients. The more specialized the dentist is, the more often this happens. Dentists who practice advanced surgical procedures or cosmetic and sedation dentistry are more likely to fall into this group. This is generally because they are only able to see a small number of patients each day.
It is important for you to know whether or not your dentist of choice is accepting new patients before you spend any time speaking with their office. We hope you found this video valuable and that you’re able to find the right dentist for your needs.

What is there to know about amalgams?

Do you have fillings in your mouth? Do you know what those fillings are made of and what the material might mean to your oral health?
A common practice to make dental amalgams for many years was to use a mixture of mercury with another metal. The reason for this generally dealt with the fact that the cost was relatively low and the patient suffered few side effects. These amalgams lasted for a long time. Techniques have evolved over time and new restorative materials have been created. These materials offer you, as a patient, a number of other options. When deciding on a material for your fillings, you will want to consider such things as durability, appearance, and ease of treatment.
Another point to consider is that you want whatever material used in your mouth to not wear out in a few years. Cost may be a factor as well and if you are on a budget you will want to know the price of the initial treatment as well as any potential maintenance. The best way to become fully informed is to have a consultation with your dentist. That way you can truly understand all of your options.
We hope this short video helped you understand the full truth about amalgams. It’s information that you truly want to know!

If my teeth are wearing out, what do I do?

As we grow older many things change. We lose a bit of the spring in our step, our backs may get a little more stiff and yes, our teeth can begin to wear out. Much of that depends on how well you have taken care of your teeth throughout your life.
Many people believe that the logical step after their teeth wear out is to get dentures. You may have many other options–another common notion is that as teeth wear out we can replace them with implants. Some people think that a crown will solve the problem. These solutions may be the best answers, or they may not.
The good news is that the options are varied, and you have many different choices. The best person to discuss your options with is your dentist. Their expertise will help them examine your situation and offer you some quality advice, allowing you to decide what is best for you.

What to do about a broken tooth?

A broken tooth can cause you many kinds of difficulty. You have to deal with the pain and shock, and perhaps even some trauma. Often it’s a big nuisance when we find ourselves taking our tongue and putting it on the broken tooth, compulsively searching to feel the jagged edge. What exactly should we do when we break a tooth? And how much is it going to cost?
In addition to the possible pain and stress of a broken tooth, there’s the total discomfort and “weird feeling” of having a sharp, pointed edge that used to be rounded on the inside of our mouth. Some of us find it almost impossible to stop rubbing with our tongue in the hopes that maybe it will return to normal.
The truth is that when you have a broken tooth, you are probably going to require some treatment. The treatment could be as simple as filing rough edges. It could also be as complex as needing to rebuild the tooth. You do have multiple options, from veneers to crowns to implants. With the help of your dentist, you can decide what is right for you as well as what fits into your budget. With as much stress as there is in the world today, there’s no reason to let the stress of a broken tooth continue.

How do I know if my Dentist did a Good Job?

Without a doubt, this is a tricky question. Of course one would want to believe that their dentist did a fine job in caring and treatment, however, how do you really know? It’s not that easy to look inside your own mouth and make an assessment of the work. Plus, that would require expensive dental expertise in the first place.
Wouldn’t anybody feel better if they were certain their dentist had done excellent work. Don’t feel embarrassed to ask questions or seek information about each treatment that you receive. There are a lot of differences between treatments and even between one dentist and another. This process of exploring the quality of your care is more important than ever.
Where this can be even more important is in the event that you are dealing with a specialist such as a sedation dentist or a cosmetic dentist. Take advantage of the tips shared in this video to ensure that you and your family get the level of care that you rightly deserve.

What Services Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

There any many types of dental insurance ranging from those that cover only the basic treatments to others that cover everything you may require. Some may require a certain period of time to pass before some procedures are covered, while others have yearly limits.
The reality is that dental insurance can be quite complicated and often confusing. When the treatments become more in depth complexities may arise in trying to determine coverage. Braces and other orthodontic treatment or even the age of the patient can raise questions and require more than average knowledge of your insurance policy.
Cosmetic dentistry comes with difficulties all its own and you will need to consult with your insurance company to see if cosmetic work is covered. Severe cases that require mouth reconstruction and multiple implants also need special consideration. And, of course, let’s not forget about simple teeth cleaning, check ups and the periodic toothache.
It is important for you to know and understand what your insurance company does and does not cover. We hope this video has been helpful so that you will be more informed the next time you see your dentist.

What happens if I’m on a tight budget?

These days more people are on tight and strict budgets when it comes to unexpected extraneous expenses. Teeth often fall into that category. Many of us just don’t have big stacks of cash that we can spend on getting a Hollywood smile.
Is it possible to get the dental care you want and need without breaking the bank? Do you have to count every penny and deprive yourself of certain life pleasures to take care of your teeth? We certainly hope not. There are many options when it comes to financing your dental care and we want you to know about the ones that matter to you.
Dental insurance plans offer many different ways to help and many dentists have financing options themselves. A properly crafted strategy can help you manage any uncovered expense. We believe that you deserve the best dental care available and the smile you’ve always wanted. We hope this video will help you get exactly that.

If I want white teeth, what are the options?

If you watch television, you’ll see a number of commercials with smiling faces and promises of instant, fabulous white teeth. Is it really that simple? Can you actually get beautiful, white teeth that easily?
Do I need to spend a whole bunch of money? Not necessarily. Which is the best method? The answer to this question is very personal. The treatment that you want and that fits into your budget may not be the right one for somebody else. With four main choices of teeth whitening from which you can choose, the best idea is to sit down with your dentist. That way you can discuss all of your options, at least if what you are looking for is more than a quick touch up.
Your smile and confidence go hand-in-hand. There’s no doubt that we feel better when we can flash a great smile. Part of that is to get your teeth to be as white as you want them. And today there are more options than ever to accomplish that. Explore them all and then decide what is best for you. As we love to say, life is clearly better with great teeth.

Are all Dentists really the same?

Does that seem like an odd question? Actually, it’s something we hear all the time in our office. There is a belief that all dentists are the same and all dental offices are the same as well. Not so. There is actually a wide range and a great deal of variety from one office to another.
The reality is that dental offices are very different and those differences are based on the type of practice. For example, a family dental practitioner on the West Coast may be similar to a family dental practitioner on the East Coast. An orthodontist will have different tools and different skills than a periodontist. An implant dentist will use different methods which also require a variety of equipment that you will not likely find in a cosmetic dentist’s office.
At the end of the day the type of office that you are looking for will be based on what type of dental care you need or want. One of the easiest ways to determine the features of any given office is to do a little research by visiting their website. Most dental practitioners will explain their practice in detail on their site and give you more information on which to base your decision.
We hope this video will help you to find exactly the perfect dentist for you.

What’s the Secret to a Pain-free Dental Visit?

It’s too bad that many people live in fear of their visit to the dentist. Friends or family who have had bad experiences or poorly done dentistry may contribute to these fears. It may also simply be a belief that came from watching a movie or hearing a story, or having a friend share the tale of a very unlikely experience. Whatever the case may be, you absolutely can and should have a pain-free visit to your dentist.
What you should know is that the majority of people who feel any level of anxiety over visiting their dentist do so because they have a misconception. The reality is that your dentist cares very much about keeping you from feeling pain, not creating more. And they will do whatever they can to ensure that you have a pleasant experience. After all, they want you to come back for future visits and would appreciate it if you refer their services to your friends and family.
It makes perfect sense, then, that they would do everything in their power to relieve your pain and suffering. You should feel confident in speaking to them about any concerns that you have. We hope that this video will help you with your next visit to your dentist and every visit after that.

Choosing a Dentist in Savannah

Everybody always wonders how to go about choosing the right dentist. It is not a topic that is a popular subject around the dinner table. Discussing good and bad dentists and dental care is probably not considered the best dinner conversation.
At the same time, making the right choice when it comes to your dentist is still an important decision. This is especially true with the many types of dentist and dental specialists that exist. There are family dentists, cosmetic dentists, sedation dentists, implant dentists, periodontists, orthodontists and many others.
What if you need to have a tooth pulled? What if all you need is a simple teeth cleaning? What if you have a root canal or some other serious problem? It’s even more important to choose the right dentist if you need advanced treatments such as reconstructive surgery. That is exactly why we have prepared this video for you.
We hope this helps you and look forward to helping you with your teeth!

Easing a Toothache Until Your Appointment

Sometimes you aren’t able to come immediately to the dentist when you have a toothache. Here are a couple of helpful tips for treating your toothache until your appointment. Over-the-counter medications can be applied topically to numb the affected area. Anti-inflammatory pain medications will be helpful as well.
You may begin to feel better but it’s always a good idea to get to your general dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist will be able to pinpoint the source of the problem and help you keep it from reoccurring. Toothaches are no fun and we don’t want you to suffer when you really don’t have to. We’ve all had dental pain and know how debilitating it can be.
