- If it ain’t broke, why are we fixing it? 4 things that are killing you that don’t hurt
What goes on in and around your mouth affects what goes on in your body. Keeping up with good oral health can reduce the effects of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Unfortunately,many times things that are going wrong in your body (yes, that includes your teeth), don’t hurt. And if they don’t hurt, they go undetected and subsequently, untreated. The problem progresses and steadily gets worse until - BAM - it blows up with destruction all around. Here are four things that are going on in your mouth that don’t hurt but are leaving a trail of damage in your body. Gum disease Gum disease usually doesn’t hurt and sometimes there aren’t any other symptoms. This is why it is hard to know if you have it. Unfortunately you may not know you have it until it gets worse and becomes advanced and turns into periodontitis. Start taking care of it now. Snoring Not only will snoring kill your relationship, but it also increases the risk of heart attack, stroke and other health problems. Grinding Clenching and grinding your jaw and teeth is often more than just a result of stress. It is often a sign of breathing issues such as enlarged tonsils and adenoids that are blocking the airway. It also is a symptom of sleep apnea. Failure to treat the grinding not only increases the risk of death by lack of oxygen to your heart, but it can also cause headaches, damage your jaw joints (TMJ). Patients with bruxism, or teeth grinding, should wear a mouth guard or night guard while they sleep. This leave-in-the-mouth product essentially protects your teeth from being ground down, weakened, and destroyed by subconscious teeth grinding. It also helps you get a good night's sleep as well as your spouse Sleep apnea As a dentist, we are often the first people to notice the signs of sleep apnea. Having obstructive sleep apnea increases your risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and abnormal heartbeats, such as atrial fibrillation. Broken/chipped tooth A chipped tooth may look ugly, but it can also be deadly. Leaving a broken tooth exposed can eventually lead to nerve damage in the inside of it and become infected. The infection could then spread throughout your body, and be life-threatening. If you need to come in for a check-up, get a free sleep or snoring consult, or need a cleaning, call Dr. Freemont at 404-761-1659 or contact us online.
- Take CBD With You to the Dentist
Will it hurt? I start everything with a standard answer: It depends. I know you don't like how that sounds, but it's the truth! Everybody's mouth is different and even the same person's mouth can vary from time to time. If your mouth is always clean and healthy, then you probably will have the best dental visit ever! But what does clean and healthy mean? Are you going to the dentist at least twice a year? Do you go more frequently if your hygienist recommended it? Are you brushing at least twice a day? Flossing? Are you using an alcohol-free antimicrobial mouthwash? Are you cleaning your tongue? Are you staying away from high carbs? Are you smoking? I can go on and on with the list of things that make you a great candidate for an always great dental visit. But even if you don’t check off everything doesn’t mean that it's going to hurt or that it’s going to cost much or the reverse. You really have to be honest with yourself and you have to be fair with your dentist. Don't blame the dentist if you are not doing what you have to do at home. We are here to help you. Trust me - we are not into causing you pain! If you are nervous that your cleanings will hurt, ask the hygienist to rub some numbing gel on your gums before she starts. Most people who ask if it’s going to hurt have some level of anxiety about going to the dentist. Don't worry; you don't have to admit it out loud, but we know that you have a fear of the dentist even if not a strong one. The fear is there. Ask your dentist if it's ok to take some type of pain medication before you get started. That will actually help you after the numbness wears off. Reducing anxiety reduces adrenaline and that makes your visits way more comfortable. The more comfortable you are, the less pain you will be in. The mind definitely will play tricks on you. It’s mind over matter. To help you relax, take CBD. Take the oil, capsules and/or edibles, like Relax Bears, right before your appointment. You'll notice the effect of reduced anxiety and have a more pleasant visit. It gets kinda noisy in the dentist chair. Try using some music with headphones while you're having your work done. No - I'm not telling you to tough it out, I'm just telling you what you can do to make your own visit more comfortable. As a dentist, there is nothing more enjoyable than to see our patients relax, drop their shoulders, close their eyes, and drift off to sleep. That lets us know that we're doing a good job in that you feel great!
- Is Alcohol Good or Bad (in Mouthwash)?
Let's talk about why alcohol is in mouthwash in the first place. The main reason why alcohol is in most regular mouthwashes is because it is actually used as a preservative for the product and as a "carrier agent" for the ingredients. Well, since alcohol is acidic, and acids cause cavities, why are we using a cavity-causing product to care for our mouths? Doesn't make sense, does it? So now that you know that alcohol-based mouthwashes are not good for keeping your mouth healthy, you should opt for one that contains no alcohol, like Triple Mint Therapeutic Mouthwash. Here are 6 benefits of using an alcohol-free mouthwash: 1. It provides a long-term solution in maintaining your good oral care. 2. It gets to any root problems. 3. It promotes the natural balance of saliva in your mouth. 4. It can help prevent other issues from getting worse inside of your mouth without any negative side effects. 5. It doesn’t leave a burning feeling when you use it. 6. It reduces your risk of oral cancer 7. Low in acid For more information about what mouthwash you should use and answers to other oral health questions or to schedule your next dental appointment, please call Dr. Joi Freemont, Miss Doctor Lady herself, at (404) 761-1659 or contact us online.
