Tips for Healthy Teeth

General Dentistry Beausejour, MB
 
Maintaining a strict dental hygiene routine is one of the best ways that you can keep a healthy and happy smile for yourself and for the world. However, have you ever wondered about the little things you do everyday that could be hurting your teeth? More than just brushing and flossing regularly, consider these tricks and tips for keeping your smile safe.
 
Change your toothbrush regularly, and make sure you’re brushing with a soft-bristled, multi-tufted brush as to avoid rough abrasion on teeth and gums.
 
Watch what you’re crunching! Chomping on fingernails, ice cubes, or using your teeth as tools to open plastic bags or bottle caps strains your teeth much outside the realms of what they are designed to withstand! Forcing so much pressure on your teeth can easily and immediately cause cracks or fractures.
 
Refrain from constant acid consumption through sugary drinks like sodas, sports’ drinks, or coffee. Monitor your regular sugar intake through candies and carbohydrates as these too lead to immediate and intense acid production in the mouth - inevitably breaking down tooth enamel and lead to gum erosion, leaving your mouth defenseless against lurking bacteria.
 
For the best defense against tooth decay, wait about 30 minutes after eating or drinking to brush your teeth. While you’re eating and drinking, acid is created as a part of your body’s natural process to break down food. Immediately brushing after food consumption can allow that acid to break down tooth enamel, rather than scrubbing your enamel clean.

Dental Implant FAQs

Dental Implants Beausejour Manitoba

 
Interested in implants? For years, dental implants have swept the nation as one of the most popular ways to cosmetically improve smiles, and your Beausejour Dental Dentists are ready to help you bridge the gap your mouth has been suffering!
 
As far as tooth-replacement systems go, dental implants have been regarded as the best option for replacing missing teeth, as they function the most similarly to natural teeth, and with proper care, can last a lifetime. The replacements have two parts- a part that functions as the anchoring root, as well as the cosmetic “tooth” that appears above the gumline. The “root” in this system, is the dental implant, and the “tooth” is called the crown.
 
Together, this root and tooth system, in combination with the practiced and skilled implant procedure perfected the Dentists at Beausejour Dental, your smile imperfections can become a thing of history, and your smile secrets can be tucked away behind your new, improved, and beautiful smile! 
 
You may be wondering what sets the implant system above and beyond other measures of tooth replacement; here’s the key: the titanium of which the implant is made has special properties that allow it to fuse with your natural jaw bone, creating lifetime functionality base for your new tooth.
 
If you’re ready to make the move to implants, or for more information about this life-changing process, call 204.268.1782to schedule an appointment with Beausejour Dental.
 

Traveling with TMJ

Traveling with TMJ

TMJ Beausejour, MB

 
What’s the best way to take a relaxing vacation if you’re plagued by TMJ? It’s simple-- RELAX! Many people feel anxious over the thought of lugging their TMJ with them this holiday season, but the complexities surrounding TMJ that seem to be looming over travel time can easily be left at home! 

First of all, relax!

Stress can cause all-over tension for your body, and especially for your jaw and shoulders that may be afflicted by your TMJ. If you set your mind to “going with the flow” this vacation, you’ll be less- likely to over exert yourself worrying about plans, or sticking to schedules when you can be relaxing and enjoying yourself instead. Listen to what your body is telling you about your needs, and take care of yourself to avoid unnecessary stress or exhaustion.

Don’t forget your pillow!

Or your earplugs, for that matter. Your pillow will give your head and your neck some extra support on long road-trips or flights, and the relief from resting your head can help you to combat TMJ symptoms often before they even arise! Bringing or purchasing ear plugs for a flight can not only help you get a more sound sleep, but can also help to stabilize air pressure and stop your ears to “clog,” often reducing any ear or TMJ pain you might otherwise feel.

Keep yourself moving!

By keeping yourself as active as you can, you’ll avoid getting tense and tired muscles, and by making frequent car stops, or by moving around the airplane cabin often, you’ll give yourself to opportunity to stretch and relieve your neck, back, and shoulder muscles that can otherwise become very stiff during travel. Airplane and car seats don’t usually have the kind of support your body needs for long periods of rest, so TMJ symptoms can often worsen after hours and hours of unsupported down-time for your body. If you do find that your body is getting sore during travel time, consider taking some OTC pain relief to alleviate your discomfort.
 
If you find that you’re suffering from TMJ symptoms like jaw and shoulder pain, trouble sleeping, or constant migraines, talk to your TMJ specialist at Beausejour Dental Centre today to start living a more comfortable life tomorrow! Call 204-268-1782 to schedule an appointment with Beausejour Dental Centre before your next vacation and learn more about the best ways to manage your TMJ symptoms while you’re on-the-go!
