Lakefront Family Dentistry strives to educate patients to help them establish good oral care habits while at home. Nearly half of all adult Americans suffer from either mild or severe periodontal (or gum) disease. Many problems can be prevented with regular maintenance and a good dental cleaning regimen.
What’s Eating Away at Your Smile?
Our body naturally makes plaque, which is a thin, sticky layer of film that attaches to tooth enamel. Although there’s nothing we can do to stop this growth, it’s very important to brush daily to remove this build up.
Left alone, plaque eventually forms hard, yellow tartar that collects around and underneath the gum line. This substance can’t be removed with regular brushing and must be scraped away using special dental tools.
Without an effective dental cleaning routine, bacteria left in the mouth can cause cavities or result in gingivitis (a mild form of periodontal disease). Using fluoridated toothpaste and a soft bristled brush twice a day will help maintain strong, white enamel.
Tips for a Bright, Lasting Smile
- Brush twice every day
- Use toothpaste containing fluoride
- Use a soft-to-medium bristled toothbrush
- Floss after every meal
Dr. Hauser advises patients to schedule an exam every 6 months, which includes a professional cleaning and consultation from our highly skilled registered dental hygienists. During your exam with us, we make sure to complete a thorough mouth assessment, including digital x-rays we use to help us identify any trouble beneath the tooth surface and under the gum line. This accounts for over 75 percent of your mouth’s area and oral health.
Our staff is very skilled at what we do, and we go out of our way to ensure your ultimate satisfaction, comfort and convenience. Lakefront Family Dentistry has built our reputation as a leading provider serving families in Wildomar, California, and other cities in the Inland Empire.
Here’s What You Can Expect at Lakefront Family Dentistry
When You Come in for a Regular Teeth Cleaning
We all have lots of bacteria in our mouth, some good and others, which are bad. The good ones help to destroy potentially destructive microbes. These organisms need sugar in order to thrive and multiply. It feeds off the remnants from sugary foods and carbohydrates left in the mouth, then produces acids that eat away at tooth enamel.
Eventually, the acid attack penetrates the hard enamel and results in dental caries (i.e., cavities). When the decay breaks through the tooth structure, the damage is permanent. Early detection can help prevent damage, and there are ways to strengthen the teeth to avoid future attacks.
Most people can avoid this common disease by taking care to ensure they keep a clean, healthy mouth, free from bacteria ridden germs. Make sure to discuss all health concerns with your dentist. Certain medications and illnesses have an adverse affect on the oral cavity.
Protect Your Teeth with Fluoride and Sealants
In the 1930’s, dentists observed that people who drank naturally fluoridated water had fewer caries than others who drank regular water. By 1945, water agencies began adding fluoride to all drinking water used by the public. Since then, the incidence of cavities has been significantly reduced. In more recent years, enamel strengthening agents have also been added to toothpaste and some sugarless chewing gum products.
If decay is caught early, dentists can use a special dental sealant to prevent further damage. Basically, a sealant is a liquid coating applied over the outer surfaces of molar and premolar teeth. Used in both children and adults, this protective layer prevents bacteria from causing further enamel damage.
