BACK TO SCHOOL SNACKS! KEEPING KIDS HEALTHY AND ALERT!

Dentist Brampton, Brampton Dental office, Dentist in Brampton, Family Dentist Brampton, Brampton Dentist, Healthy Snacks,

Snacks like chips, cookies, and dried fruit stick to the teeth and are full of sugars that can cause cavities. Fresh fruits and vegetable snacks provide nutrition for good health and help keep children alert for good learning outcomes. Example of good choices are: Walnuts and raw almonds (maybe after school since some schools are nut free), apple slices, bananas, carrot sticks, cheese, grapes, oranges and plain yogurt.

Keep your smile healthy!

Frenectomy – Dental Procedure for Children

Labial Frenum, Dental Procedures, Top Dentist in Brampton, Brampton Kids Dentists, Gum Disease, Gum Specialists,The Labial Frenum is the attachment of the upper lip to the gums of the upper jaw. In children, when the frenum is too short it can cause a gap between the two top front teeth and limit mouth closure which leads to mouth breathing, slowing down the development of nose breathing. A short labial frenum can also cause the gums to recede.

To fix this problem a dentist or periodontist may suggest a frenectomy which is a simple procedure of cutting the frenum allowing better movement of the upper lip.

Common Mistakes Parents Make With Their Children’s Dental Care*

BRINGING CHILDREN TO THEIR FIRST DENTAL VISIT TOO LATE

A child’s first dental visit should be when the first tooth appears or by the age of 1, whichever comes first. It is the best practice to start a child on a good path and reduce early childhood caries. For more information click here.

ALLOWING CHILDREN TO BRUSH AND FLOSS THEIR TEETH ON THEIR OWN

It is very important to teach and help your child brush and floss their teeth to aid them in the right direction in maintaining proper care of their teeth at an early age. Being with them when they are brushing a parent can ensure that they do not rush their brush and brush for at least 2 minutes, covering all the teeth and surfaces.

THINKING THAT CAVITIES ON BABY TEETH DO NOT NEED TO BE FIXED

Some baby teeth will be in your child’s mouth until age 12 and the decayed tooth that needs to be fixed may be one of those. Decayed, broken or teeth that are infected can hurt your child’s oral and overall health and it may also affect the way your child feels about him or herself now and in the future. for more information click here.

ALLOWING CHILDREN TO DRINK SPORT DRINKS AND SODA POP

The sugar and acid in energy drinks and soda pop is a perfect recipe for bacteria growth in the mouth which may cause tooth decay and dental erosion. When given the choice, water is best for hydration. For more information on sport drinks click here.

ALLOWING CHILDREN TO PLAY SPORTS WITHOUT A MOUTH GUARD AND NOT MAKING SURE IT IS CLEANED PROPERLY

Mouth guards, also called mouth protectors, help cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. They typically cover the upper teeth and are a great way to protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining. Knowing how to prevent injuries like these is especially important if you participate in organized sports or other recreational activities. For more information click here.

Are your teeth going from white to not so bright?

Young Man Smile Before And After Teeth WhiteningHave you noticed your teeth change colour ….. going from white to not so bright?

There are many reason teeth can change colour or get stained. From the foods consumed, and trauma to medication and age.

Food and Drinks

Certain foods and drinks have intense colour pigments that attach to the white outer part of the tooth (enamel) causing colour change. Such foods and drinks are: Coffee, tea, red wine, candy and foods containing colour.

Tobacco

Tar and nicotine create stains. Tar is naturally dark and although nicotine is colourless when mixed with oxygen it turns into a yellowish surface-staining substance.

Age

The enamel of the tooth is white however the layer under the enamel, called dentin, is yellowish. With age, as the enamel gets thiner, more of the yellowish dentin shows through.

Trauma

If you have hit your tooth you may notice it get darker as a reaction to the injury, by laying down more dentin.

Medication

Certain medications can also cause teeth to change colour and darken. Be sure to speak to your dentist if you have concerns that the medication you are taking are causing your teeth to change colour.

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. However if you feel your teeth can use a little whitening help there are a few options you may want to consider:

Chair-Side Bleaching – usually takes about 2 hours.  A shield (or rubber dam) protects your gums from the bleaching agent (usually a form or hydrogen peroxide) which is “painted” onto your discoloured teeth and activated with heat or high-intensity light.

Take-Home Bleaching – is done by you at home. You wear a custom-made tray with special bleaching gel (provided by your dentist) for a period of time each day 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 discolouration. 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.

At Dr. Dimovski’s Dental Office we have three different whitening systems and are 25% off until February 29th 2016. Be sure to contact one of our dental professionals for more information.
