Know about dental fluorosis and what causes it – Brampton Dentists

Dental fluorosis is caused by excessive amounts of high concentration fluoride exposure during tooth development. It often appears as faint white streaks on enamel in most mild cases and in the most severe cases will appear as a brown mottled spots on the teeth. Usually it is a combination of fluoride sources which lead to the over exposure.  Children between the ages of 1 – 4 are at critical age of exposure. A child is no longer at risk after the age of 8 because all of the teeth have been developed already.

Since fluorosis is permanent and will not go away over time there are some ways to reduce its appearance. Most cases of fluorosis are mild and cannot be seen easily, but for more severe cases there are options such as bonding resin on fronts of teeth affected or veneers. Unfortunately, teeth whitening will often make the stains and white streaks have an almost chalky appearance which will still stand out from the regular tooth colour. The best way to find a solution which will work best for your specific case is to meet with a dental professional.

Did you know that canker sores may be related to stress?

canker sores, brampton dentists, what causes canker sores, top dentists in brampton, mouth sores, Canker sores develop inside the mouth as small white or grey sores that have a red border. They are not contagious and may occur as one or several sores. Although the exact cause is not known, scientists believe that problems with immune system, emotional stress, menstruation or injury to the mouth may be common triggers. In some cases, trauma to the mouth such as bitting the inside of the cheek or tongue or chewing sharp foods can also cause a canker sore. Citrus or acidic foods can irritate a canker sore and make it uncomfortable.

As there is no cure for canker sores there are over-the-counter topical medication and mouth rinses to ease the pain and discomfort. Canker sores usually heal on their own within one to two weeks. Antibiotics and some oral bandages may reduce secondary infection.

Healthy Halloween Tips – Brampton Dentists

  • When sorting through their candy, get your child to trade in their problematic treats for stickers or other little toys.
  • Eating sweets is fine when done in moderation. Keep candy in a sealed container and establish times when your child can have a treat. Immediately after meals is a good time, as there is a better flow of saliva to help wash away foods and to dilute sugar.
  • Brush and floss after snacking. If your child doesn’t have access to a toothbrush while at school or a friend’s house, give them sugarless gum to help get their saliva flowing.
  • Alternate some healthy snacks, such as vegetables, fruits, yogurts and cheeses, with Halloween treats.
  • Be sure to stick to a good oral health routine – brush and floss daily and see your dentist regularly.

Treats, Not Tricks!

Better choices:

  • Treats that are sugarless or low in sugar, not hard and easily brushed away after they are eaten.
  • Sugarless gum, peanuts, sunflower seeds, popcorn or sugarless lollipops are good treats to hand out.

Those to avoid:

  • Treats that remain in the mouth for a long time are the prime culprits behind decay-causing bacteria. Avoid sticky sweets that adhere to teeth, such as caramels, toffees and fruit roll-ups.
  • Hard candies, such as lollipops and jawbreakers, can also cause chipped teeth and may damage dental work.
