Options You Have for Cracked Teeth
Posted on 4/20/2018 by Posh Dental
The strongest tissue in the body is the enamel covering the teeth. However, it is still capable of being cracked. There are a number of ways for a tooth to be damaged. Maybe you fell or was roughhousing, or perhaps you broke it while eating one of the many damaging foods. Also, the risk of breaking a tooth is increased when it is weakened due to cavities or tooth decay. Repairing a Cracked Tooth After a thorough examination, your dentist can determine the best treatment option for the cracked tooth. Also, the extent, location, and type help determine the treatment. Craze Lines Tiny cracks only affecting the outer enamel of the tooth are called craze lines. They are not painful, are shallow, and only affect appearance. Fractured Cusp A break in the chewing surface of a tooth is a fractured cusp. Generally, this type of crack does not cause much pain or damages the pulp. To protect the cracked tooth, a filling or crown can be placed over the tooth. Cracked Tooth A vertical crack extending from the chewing surface to the root and has not divided into pieces. To ensure saving the tooth, early diagnosis is vital. Depending on how far the crack extends determines the treatment option. A root canal and a crown are ideal if the crack has extended into the pulp. If the crack has extended beyond the gums, however, an extraction would be needed. Vertical Root Fracture A crack beginning at the root, extending to the chewing surface of the tooth is a vertical root fracture. In most cases, signs and symptoms are minimal resulting in late diagnosis. Extraction may be necessary, but endodontic surgery may help save the tooth. Split Tooth Long-term progression often leads to a split tooth. A crack with distinct pieces able to be separated is a split tooth. The extent and location of the split will determine if the tooth can be saved. Endodontic treatment may be helpful in saving part of the tooth.

Never Delay Getting Help for a Toothache
Posted on 4/10/2018 by Posh Dental
A toothache never shows up at a time where you have nothing to do. They always show up at the most inopportune time possible. You always have something else going on, and it means changing up your entire day to come in and get seen. However, you need to understand the potential risks of putting off your toothache in favor of going about your day. Not only can your pain get worse, but so can your problem. So Many Things Can Cause a Toothache There are so many things that can cause your tooth to hurt. Some of them are very minor, including things like having a piece of food stuck between your teeth or having a minor cavity. These take next to no time to correct, and can give you almost immediate relief. However, there are other things that can also cause your toothache that are not as easy to correct. One of the most dangerous things that can cause your tooth to hurt is a dental abscess. This is an infection that is often contained either in the tooth itself, or in the tissue surrounding the tooth. This infection can damage not only your tooth, but it can also spread infection to other parts of your body. The pain with an abscess is usually higher than that of a minor cavity, but not always. If you notice pain plus a fever, we need to see you right away. Toothaches are often easily solved, but only when the problem is figured out early. At the earliest sign of a toothache, call our office. We can have you come in so we can take a peek around and see what is going on. From there, we can help treat the problem, and get you back to that busy life of yours....

Why You Never Want to Store Your Toothbrush Out in the Open in Your Bathroom
Posted on 3/25/2018 by Posh Dental
Flash your brightest smile to the world because healthy teeth means a healthy smile. To keep your teeth and gums healthy, you need to practice good oral hygiene and visit dentists regularly. Included in the good oral hygiene practices are brushing and flossing your teeth regularly at least two to three times per day or every after meal. However, you may often forget that storing your toothbrush also plays an important role in keeping your whole oral cavity as healthy as possible. Toothbrush Care Toothbrush can be the cause of germ transfer to the oral cavity. It is important that every toothbrush should be stored in an open air environment. This helps with avoiding building moisture on the toothbrush and preventing germ transfer. It is also clear that a toothbrush should be replaced every three to four months. People usually store their toothbrushes in the bathroom. Did you know that this is not a healthy practice? If not, this is the perfect time to learn the reason why you need to quit storing your toothbrush out in the open in your bathroom. Bathroom is Not Safe for Toothbrush Everyone keeps toothbrush in the bathroom, but the truth is bathroom is not the safe haven for our dear toothbrushes. This may be odd to hear, but scientists already conducted a research about toothbrushes stored inside the bathroom. They found out that 60 percent of toothbrushes stored inside the bathroom have traces of fecal matter, which is really gross and unhealthy. How does that happen? Your toilet creates an aerosol effect of germs and bacteria. Every single time you flush your toilet, every bacterium and virus that fell from the toilet spray will remain airborne. This will spread throughout the bathroom including the sink, which is also apparently the place where you store your toothbrush. You might want to avoid storing your toothbrush in your bathroom as early as possible. Do you need help in keeping your teeth clean and healthy? We can help you. Visit us today!...
