  • How are my headaches related to my teeth?

    Teeth should only touch each other when you chew, swallow or talk. Studies have shown that this occurs for 15-30 minutes per day. Clenching and grinding teeth is known as bruxism, and commonly occur during sleep. Headaches and jaw pain often result from tired and clenching muscles that are working when they should be resting. Over time, bruxism can cause damage to teeth and dental work such as crowns, veneers, fillings etc. We use a non-drug approach to relaxing the muscles by fitting a simple appliance for night-time use only.

  • My tooth was knocked out, what should I do?

    You should visit the dentist immediately. Getting to a dentist within 30 minutes can make the difference between saving and losing a tooth.

    •  Handle the tooth by the crown, not the root. Touching the root (the part of the tooth below the gum) can damage cells.
    •  Gently rinse the tooth in water to remove dirt. Do not scrub.
    •  Place the clean tooth in your mouth between the cheek and the gum to keep it moist.
    •  Do not let the tooth dry out.
    •  If a tooth is put back into its socket within 30 minutes, there is a good chance of re-attaching.
    •  If It is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth of the injured person, wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse in milk.

  • When do baby teeth fall out?

    Children usually lose their front 8 baby teeth between 6 years and 8 years of age. At this time the first permanent (6 year old) molars also come through behind all the baby teeth. No more baby teeth will loosen up until your child is about 10 years old. Then the lower eye teeth become loose. Between 10 and12 years of age the remaining baby teeth are lost and are replaced with adult teeth. At 12 years of age the second molars come through. This just leaves the wisdom teeth. If they come through it can be as early as 16 years of age.

  • I have sensitive teeth, what should I do?

    The key to preventing tooth sensitivity is to keep the gums from receding. Reducing the pressure we use to brush our teeth helps tremendously.

    Preventing gingivitis and periodontal disease with proper oral hygiene is also crucial in preventing gum recession. Remember, it takes 2 to 3 minutes to properly brush all your tooth surfaces. Most people spend less than 45 seconds leaving areas untouched where plaque and tartar can build up. Flossing is crucial in order to reach the 35% of the tooth surfaces where brushing cannot reach.
