Is Your Saliva Flow Regular?

Saliva, Good Oral Health Habits, Mouth Healthy, Dental Info, Dental facts, Brampton Dentists, Cosmetic Dentists Brampton, Local Dentist,Saliva, or spit, plays a significant role in maintaining oral health. It is derived from blood and acts as the bloodstream of the mouth. What this means is, like blood, saliva helps build and maintain the health of soft and hard tissues. When saliva flow is reduced oral health problems such as tooth decay and other oral infections can occur. Chewing is the most efficient way to stimulate salivary flow. It causes muscles to compress the salivary glands and release saliva.

Saliva also:

  • Washes away food and debris from teeth and gums
  • Helps moisten and break down food to ease swallowing and enhances ability to taste
  • Provides disease-fighting substances throughout your mouth to help prevent cavities and other infections
  • Helps keep the surface of your teeth strong by providing high levels of calcium, fluoride and phosphate ions at the tooth surface.

In addition to keeping your mouth healthy, saliva may contain indicators of health concerns as well. Since it shares many properties with blood, the use of saliva to detect and diagnose oral diseases and other diseases that could affect your general health is being studied. Researchers have reported promising results in the use of saliva for the diagnosis of breast cancer, oral cancers, gum disease and viral hepatitis. Saliva is already used for rapid HIV testing.

Do you have Bad Breath?

What you eat affects your breath. If you don’t brush and floss daily, particles of food can remain in the mouth, collecting bacteria, which can cause bad breath.

Breath mints and chewing gum are great temporary solutions to bad breath, but they can’t help you if your bad breath problem stems from something beyond the garlic and onions you had for lunch. Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth can also be one of the warning signs of gum disease; which is caused by plaque.

Your first line of defence against bad breath should be to make sure you brush two times a day for two minutes and floss once a day. You should also brush your tongue since most of the bacteria in the mouth that are responsible for bad breath hang out on the back of the tongue. If you still find your breath is offensive, talk to your dentist or physician. Your dentist can work with you to develop a treatment plan that minimizes odor. This might include scraping the plaque off your tongue or using a special antibacterial mouth-rinse.

If you already practice good oral hygiene and still don’t know what’s causing your bad breath, make an appointment to see your dentist. Regular checkups allow your dentist to detect any problems such as gum disease or dry mouth. Bad breath may be the sign of a medical disorder. Some diseases have symptoms related to bad breath. Sinus or lung infections, bronchitis, diabetes, and some liver or kidney diseases may be associated with bad breath. If your dentist determines that your mouth is healthy, you may be referred to your primary care physician.

Maintaining good oral hygiene, eliminating gum disease and scheduling regular professional cleanings are essential to reducing bad breath. Brush twice a day and clean between your teeth daily with floss. Brush your tongue, too. If you wear dentures, be sure to remove them at night and clean them thoroughly before replacing them the next morning.

For more information be sure to schedule an appointment with one of our dental professionals.

INVISALIGN – CREATING UNFORGETTABLE SMILES

Most adults and some teens would feel uncomfortable wearing braces. Invisalign is virtually undetectable when worn. Therefore the patient can smile with confidence while their teeth are being straightened. The cheeks and lips do not get sore like they can from the brackets and wires of conventional braces and there are no effects on speech.
Invisalign is a method of straightening teeth without using brackets and wires. Clear plastic aligners are like thin mouth guards. These aligners gradually move teeth (or align teeth) into their correct position. Approximately every 2 weeks you place new aligners and these are worn for 22 out of 24 hours daily. They are removable for eating, brushing and flossing, dental cleanings or restorations. This makes it easy taking care of your oral health during treatment.

Invisalign can give you a wonderful new smile without sacrificing convenience and comfort. We have a monitor in our waiting room with an interesting video where you can learn more about this wonderful process which has now been used to treat millions of people.

For more information or to find out if Invisalign is right for you be sure to contact our office.
