A root canal procedure repairs a tooth that has been infected or severely damaged, usually due to a deep crack or cavity. The procedure itself involved removing the affected area, cleaning the tooth, and refilling the space. Afterwards, it’s important to take care of the area with specific routines and solutions to minimize your discomfort. Here are some of those care options:
First and foremost- make sure you are maintaining your good oral care routines at home, including brushing a flossing twice a day, as well as attending your regular check-ups with Beausejour Dental Centre to keep your oral health in top shape, and to be proactive and preventative with your oral care.
After some root canal procedures, you may need to take anti-inflammatory medicine, or your doctor might prescribe you something to take to minimize your pain. Ice packs or cold compresses can significantly reduce pain and swelling after a root canal treatment, and you can repeat these compresses in an on-for-five, off-for-fifteen routine until you feel relief.
Chewing might be painful, or could irritate your teeth and gums after treatment, so Beausejour Dental Centre often recommends a soft food or liquid diet until your mouth starts to heal. Smoothies, yogurt, and soup are all good solutions to help you get nutrients and prevent additional pain from eating. Gargling with salt water can also help soothe irritated teeth and gums, and can help minimize the risk of infection as the water gently cleans the affected area. Similarly, rinsing with a hydrogen peroxide and warm water solution will help disinfect your mouth.
Sleeping with an elevated pillow can help reduce possible bleeding, and will help ease gum nerve pain as the blood is directed to flow in one direction.
You will likely have a few follow-up appointment with Beausejour Dental Centre after your root canal procedure as to ensure all is healing normally and that there are no complications with your post-treatment care. Caring for your oral health after a root canal can be complicated and frustrating, so don’t hesitate to reach out to Beausejour Dental Centre of you have any questions or concerns following your procedure.

Dental emergencies can be scary, especially if you feel underprepared for how to respond in the situation. Ignoring dental emergencies can lead to painful and costly issues in the future, so being prepared to handle issues that arise upfront can be the best solution to save you time, money, and pain!
Having a toothache is absolutely no fun; it usually occurs when a cavity is close to and irritates a nerve, and often requires a dental crown or sometimes a root canal. To take the edge off of some of your immediate pain, consider taking a pain reliever, or applying a cold compress to the area.
If you knock out a tooth, save it! Speed matters if you’re trying to save your lost tooth - quickly reinsert (without forcing!) the tooth into its socket, or save the tooth in a cup of milk. Get to Beausejour Dental Centre immediately for best odds of saving your tooth.
If you break a tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water to wash away any smaller fragments that could be lingering. If you’re bleeding, hold a piece of gauze on the area until bleeding stops. You can use a cold compress to relieve some of the pain and swelling, and you should come in to Beausejour Dental Centre as soon as possible.
If you have a dental emergency, it’s best to get in to see Beausejour Dental Centre immediately. If you have any questions, or to schedule your next appointment call 204.268.1782!
So exactly how important is replacing a missing tooth? Those who aren’t missing any of their natural teeth might not understand the sense of identity surrounding your smile, or understand the emotional stress that can come with being uncomfortable with your natural smile. For those who do have missing teeth, you might feel a sense of insecurity upon first impressions or after some goodbyes - you recognize how uncomfortable it can be to doubt your appearance.
Dental implants are an easy solution to keeping your smile in healthy and happy condition, so you won’t be able to help but to show it off to everyone you meet. Beyond replacing missing teeth for the benefits of the aesthetics, replacing missing teeth is also important to keep the balance and structure of your natural teeth in order. As soon as a tooth is lost, natural teeth may begin to shift; this can lead to complicated and expensive dental problems in the future
It’s also much more comfortable to live life with a full set of teeth! Many people with missing teeth suffer after giving up some of their favorite foods, because they can’t bare the discomfort of food touching their exposed dental root. You don’t have to live like this! By replacing missing teeth with dental implants, you are then free to live the life you’ve always loved.
Don’t be held back by missing teeth! Dental implants for replacing missing teeth are a safe and effective way to carry out life with the smile you deserve, and the quality of life worth living.

Many people are familiar with the health benefits of adding fluoride to drinking water for the strengthening and protection of children’s teeth, but did you know that those same restorative properties of fluoride hold true for adult exposure as well? Researchers are excited to have found increasing evidence suggesting fluoridated tap water not only prevents pediatric cavities, but also prevents tooth decay in adults.
Although the understanding for years has been such that fluoride worked by strengthening teeth while they were still developing, new professional discoveries show that topical fluoride treatments, such as those through toothpaste, mouth rinses, and specialized fluoride treatments, helps to fight oral decay for people of all ages.
If your gums have started to recede from your teeth, you wear braces, have chronic dry mouth, or have had radiation to your head or neck that could have damaged your salivary glands, a fluoride treatment could be a quick and painless first step solution to a better tomorrow!

Tooth sensitivity is uncomfortable and unnecessary! Extreme sensitivity is a result of exposed nerve endings when the protective coating that insulates these nerves is eroded away. If you’ve been living with tooth sensitivity, consider these suggestions for reducing pain or decreasing the likeliness of nerve exposure:
Use a soft toothbrush
Some people believe that brushing harder means keeping teeth cleaner, but you might actually be doing more harm than good! Sensitivity occurs due to erosion of the protective layers on your teeth, so by brushing too hard or with a hard-bristled toothbrush, you’re actually promoting that sensitivity! Brushing with a soft-bristled brush in small, circular motions, will allow you to remove plaque without damaging your teeth.
Brush with specially designed toothpaste
There are toothpastes designed specifically to desensitize teeth and gums, and they really work! In contrast, whitening toothpastes often erode tooth enamel and lead to increased sensitivity as they wear down the natural structure of your teeth.
Keep your routine
Slacking off on brushing and flossing is no way to keep your teeth and gums in top shape! Skipping a brushing session allows for harmful bacteria and acids to build up on your teeth, and can lead to early tooth decay that causes sensitivity.
Avoid acidic foods
Sodas, energy drinks, and other acidic foods chemically erode tooth enamel and can cause sensitivity as nerve endings become exposed. Eating sugar-free gum shortly after acidic foods can help stimulate saliva to neutralize acid production in your mouth.
If you have questions about how to help your tooth sensitivity, or to schedule your next appointment with Beausejour Manitoba dentist at Beausejour Dental Centre call 204.268.1782 today!
You’ve heard of Christmas spirit, and maybe even the luck of the Irish, but have you heard about the history of the Tooth Fairy?
Legend has it, the tooth fairy character developed after early European traditions of burying lost teeth in the hopes it would bring good luck that permanent teeth would grow. After the sixth tooth was lost, a coin was left for that person. Vikings sometimes brought their children’s teeth into battle as luck charms, and in America, the tooth fairy is often depicted as a delicate, winged creature - but the Tooth fairy’s character varies across cultures. Many European countries show the fairy as an animal, like a mouse or a bear, and in some countries, even as a dragon!
The legend of the Tooth fairy has been spreading since 1927 when a play, “The Tooth fairy,” came out. In 1947, the first book with that title was published, and today, children across the world recognize the Tooth fairy as frequently as they do the Easter bunny or Santa Clause.
Many believe that the Tooth fairy caught on with so many families, because the idea helped ease children’s fears about losing teeth. Children might find a sense of comfort in knowing that losing their teeth is common, and even rewarded, as a “right of passage,” into becoming a big kid! In this respect, losing teeth becomes exciting rather than scary for children.
Do you remember any Tooth fairy traditions from your childhood? Even if you don’t you can start new traditions with your little ones, and remind them that the Fairy loves clean teeth!

There are many symptoms associated with TMJ, but tinnitus, or the clicking, ringing, or buzzing sounds many TMJ sufferers hear, is often one of the worst symptoms. Tinnitus is common, affecting on average 25% of those who suffer from TMJ. Some variations of tinnitus may sound like a “buzzing” or “hissing”rather than a ringing noise, but no matter the pitch or ____ you hear, the TMJ Specialists at Beausejour Dental Centre do NOT want you to suffer any longer!
Studies show that those who suffer from tinnitus have an increased likeliness to develop hearing loss in later years; furthermore, those with TMJ issues are also almost 3 times as likely to develop tinnitus as one of their symptoms. TMJ is often the underlying cause to many jaw and head ailments, and by addressing your TMJ before it gets the best of you, you can save yourself years of pain and strife!
Get ahead of your TMJ and say goodbye to tinnitus today by calling your Beausejour Manitoba TMJ Specialists at Beausejour Dental Centre at 204.268.1782!
When most people look at their calendar for the year, they don’t often note how many times they’ll be visiting the dentist as a part of their regular check-up routine. The problem that occurs from this general pattern is that often, when people do visit their general dentist, it’s because they’ve already developed an oral health issue that very well could have been prevented in the first place. Irregularity of dental check-ups is one of the biggest sources of oral health problems that Beausejour Dental Centre runs in to with patients.
So… how often should you visit Beausejour Dental Centre?
Adults and children alike should schedule dental check-ups on a regular basis. For those people with a preexisting oral health issue, or one that comes to light as a part of one of your dental check-ups, Beausejour Dental Centre might request to see you more frequently. For those who proceed with routine Beausejour Dental Centre will still probably hope you schedule an appointment at least twice a year. Regular visits to Beausejour Dental Centre are the best way to ensure your oral health is in top condition, so that your overall health and wellness are aiding you in being the best that you can be!
If nothing hurts, why do I need to go to Beausejour Dental Centre?
Believe it or not, pain is one of the last conditions to surface around oral health issues. Tooth pain is often a serious side effect of cavities that have already become deep enough to disturb gum tissue, meaning treatment might very well be a root canal, or even tooth removal to ultimately destroy the infection. Thankfully, by attending regular dental appointments with Beausejour Dental Centre, you can ensure that your oral health is not in jeopardy in the face of cavities.
The truth is, there are few things more important than your health and wellness, and one of the best ways to make sure you’re in top shape, is to start with your mouth! Regular dental check-ups are a vital step in keeping your healthiest self, so don’t hesitate to schedule your next dental check-up with Beausejour Dental Centre today!

You have a shoe bin, and a sock drawer, a shelf for all the cookbooks, and a basket for the laundry, but have you ever thought about how you store your toothbrush?
Believe it or not, toothbrushes can easily become home to millions of microorganisms that cause oral infections and disease! Avoid dental disaster by following these easy solutions to keeping a clean toothbrush for all members of your family:
Air It Out
Damp, dark places are breeding ground havens for bacteria, so consider the counter or medicine cabinet as a better place to let toothbrushes dry before next use.
Put Some Thought into Placement
Toothbrushes left on the counter should be well away from the toilet. Every time the toilet flushes, germs inevitably fly through the air, and a toothbrush in the “splash zone” is a dangerous place to be. Similarly, a toothbrush too close to the sink risks catching splashes from dirty soap and water anytime someone uses the sink.
Change is a Good Thing!
You should change toothbrushes approximately every three months, but should be keen to signs of wearing even before the three month mark. Frayed or pushed down bristles are a sign it’s time to splurge for a new toothbrush!
For more information about proper toothbrush care and storage, or to schedule your next appointment with Beausejour Dental Centre call 204.268.1782 today!
Eye-dry kisses, soft, shy kisses, “Oh hi!” kisses, bye-bye kisses: whatever the occasion, nobody wants to be turned down as they offer a juicy kiss this Valentine’s day! Make sure this doesn’t happen to you by keeping your oral health in top shape, even in the face of some holiday sweet-tooth satisfaction.
Don’t Let Your Kisses be Sour- Just Sweet!
Most candies are packed with sugars that can quickly destroy your teeth! The worst offenders of this nasty attack are sour candies, full of citric acids that rapidly destroy your tooth enamel. It’s best to avoid sour candies, from gummies that stick in your teeth easily to hard sour candies that release acid into your mouth continuously for an extended period of time, don’t let your kisses be sour for your Valentine this year!
Crack Down on Sweets that are Tough on Your Teeth
Did you know that Americans consume around 58 million pounds of chocolate between February 1st and February 14th?! That’s a lot of cavities waiting to happen. Consider giving your sweetheart something sweet from the heart this year, instead of giving into the sugar- craze the grocery stores might lead you to “buy” in to.
Remember that You’re Someone Special Too
Loving yourself on Valentine’s Day and every other day of the year means taking great care of yourself each and every day- and that includes your oral health! By brushing at least twice a day, and remembering to floss daily, you can keep your oral health in loveable condition for yourself and for others! Don’t forget that the healthier you eat by remembering your fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates, the sweeter your kisses will be! Nutrition affects your body’s overall function as well as your oral health, and the best way you can spoil yourself is to maintain daily healthy habits.
You can love your healthy teeth, and your Valentine can love your sweet kisses this February 14th!

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 Beausejour Dental Centre is 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 by the dentists at Beausejour Dental Centre, 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 204.268.1782 to schedule an appointment with your Beausejour Dental Centre!
So what’s the real 4-1-1 on flossing? Flossing is important not only to help remove food that may be stuck between teeth, but also to help scrape and remove plaque that is otherwise left-over after cleaning. Flossing is important when remembering your oral health routine as it can help prevent gum disease and tooth decay that brushing alone might not clear. By being proactive with your flossing, you can avoid being one of the 27% of Americans who lies to their dentists about how often they floss - a lie dentists can easily spot as soon as you open your mouth!
Here are a few tips the ADA recommends about flossing:
Use about 18 inches of floss so that you can use new sections of floss as you move around your mouth.
Wrap the floss around your middle and index fingers, and glide the floss gently in between teeth, forming a ‘C’ shape firmly around each tooth. Use a gentle push-pull motion between teeth to remove any food or plaque stuck between teeth.
Repeat this process around each tooth, and use new sections of floss as you go.
Whatever your technique, remembering to floss every day is one of the best ways you can take care of your mouth! For more tips on flossing, contact Beausejour Dental 204.268.1782 today!
