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.

Root Canal Treatment

Brampton Dentists, Dental Offices in Brampton, Root Canal Brampton,

Root canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, your dentist or endodontist (a dentist who specializes in treating the insides of teeth) removes the diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be removed.

Causes of an infected pulp could include:

  • a deep cavity
  • repeated dental procedures
  • a cracked or broken tooth
  • injury to the tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip)

If you continue to care for your teeth and gums your restored tooth could last a lifetime. However, regular checkups are necessary; a tooth without its nerve can still develop cavities or gum disease. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile. (ADA)

50% OFF All Teeth Whitening

Brampton Dentists, Brampton Dental Offices, Top Dentist in Brampton, White Smile, Teeth Whitening,

We have three different whitening systems and they are all 50% off for the month of December 2018 and January 2019. Be sure to contact one of our dental professionals for more information.

The best way to keep your teeth white is to brush twice a day, floss daily, see your dentist for regular checkups and professional cleanings, and limit stain-causing foods and habits. These include: tobacco, certain foods and beverages (such as coffee, tea and berries), some drugs (such as tetracycline), or trauma to a tooth. As well, your teeth may become stained or discolored naturally as you age. Your dentist can give you the best advice about whitening your teeth.

HERE’S HOW IT’S DONE:

Chair-side Bleaching – usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes and one to three visits to the dental office. A shield (or rubber dam) protects your gums from the bleaching agent (usually a form or hydrogen peroxide) which is “painted” onto your discolored teeth and activated with heat or high-intensity light.

Mouth-guard Bleaching – is done by you at home. You wear a custom-made mouth-guard with special bleaching gel (provided by your dentist) for a period of time each day, or overnight, over a number of weeks.

It’s important to know that not everyone’s teeth will “whiten” the same. It depends on the number of teeth involved and the severity of discoloration. Over-the-counter, at-home whiteners are not recommended because they may cause problems associated with over exposing gum tissues to the active whitening agent. Any bleaching treatment should be done under your dentist’s supervision.
