Your Teeth 

Once a person has reached his or her 21st birthday, dental issues should be in the "maintenance" phase.

What issues effect adult teeth and what are the most common solutions?

Caries = Tooth decay

Decay is a pretty simple process. Bacteria grow on our teeth and utilize sugar, starch and other nutrients to generate energy for themselves. As a by product they produce lactic acid.

This acid attacks tooth structure and the result is a cavity.

  • Throughout our life teeth can be effected by decay. The most common places are the top of the chewing surface, between the teeth and near the gum line.
  • The above places correspond to the  "non-self-cleansing" areas. This means they are difficult to reach and bacteria and food particles will remain, initiating decay.
  • To reach these areas, correct techniques are more important than brushing often.
  • Brush and floss your teeth correctly at night before going to sleep and lightly in the morning after breakfast and you will have very few problems.

Bruxing = grinding

Today we live in a fast changing environment. This places extreme pressure on us to adapt. The result is tension and stress.

International research shows that grinding teeth is a growing sign of this phenomenon. The following are the results of bruxing:

  • Worn tooth surfaces with reduced tooth height.
  • Chipped edges and and fractured crowns.
  • Muscle and joint pains.
  • Headaches.
