Do you have a white line on the inside of your cheek?

Although it may scare some when they first see it, a white line inside the cheek, called Oral Lichen Planus, is a temporary condition that may last up to 10 years. It most often affects adults between the age of 30 and 60, more common in women and is not contagious.

Oral Lichen Planus comes from the lace-like pattern of fine white lines that appear on the inside of the cheeks, gums, and tongue, usually not requiring treatment. It is asymptomatic, and does not hurt.

As the exact cause of Oral Lichen Planus not know, research suggests that the immune cells, which normally protect us by destroying bacteria or viruses, start attacking the skin or the lining of the mouth.

While there is no “cure” for Lichen Planus, it is a manageable condition. If you think you might suffer from Lichen Planus, you should talk with your dentist or doctor. They can determine what treatment (if any) is needed.

Your Dental Cleaning – Scaling and Root Planing

Dental offices in Brampton, Brampton Dentists, Caledon, Dentists, Georgetown, orangeville, Dental offices,Scaling and root planing is a teeth cleaning above and below the gum-line all the way down to the bottom of the pockets of the teeth. The scaling part is when your dentist or hygienist removes all the plaque and tartar from your teeth and the root planing part is the smoothing out of your teeth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth. For some, this deep cleaning, may take more than one visit to complete and may require a local anesthetic.

It is normal to have tooth sensitivity for up to a week as the gums are healing around the teeth after a deep dental cleaning. Your gums also may also be swollen, feel tender and bleed.

Your dentist periodontist will also schedule a follow up visit to see how your gums have healed and measure the depth of your pockets. If they have gotten deeper, more treatment may be needed.

Good dental care at home is essential to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft brush, clean between your teeth daily, eat a balanced diet, avoid using tobacco and see your dentist regularly.
