  • Toothache - the commonest causes

    Toothache - the commonest causes

    A toothache often feels like a sharp pain or a dull throbbing ache. The tooth involved may be sensitive to pressure, heat, cold, or sweets but in cases of severe pain, identifying the problem tooth is often difficult. Most toothaches get worse if not treated so it is best to see a dentist at the earliest opportunity.

    Toothaches may result from any of a number of causes:

    How to manage sensitivity during tooth whitening

    Whitening your teeth is a great way to boost your self-confidence and improve the look of your smile. It is also a pretty straightforward procedure that can be carried out either at the dental practice or at your own home. The only downside to whitening your teeth is the sensitivity that occasionally develops but there are a number of ways to combat this issue and still allow yourself to whiten your teeth and achieve that beautiful smile.

  • Understanding your dental exam

    Understanding your dental exam

    Part of your routine dental care, along with having your teeth cleaned by the dental hygienist, includes having a complete dental exam performed by your dentist. It is important to be checked regularly by your dentist (at least every six months to a year or whatever is recommended based on the health of your mouth).

    At each dental visit, the dentist will review your medical history to see if there are any changes that need to be updated. It is important to let us know if you are on any new medications or if you were diagnosed with any medical conditions since your last dental visit. Once you’ve discussed any medical changes you may have, the dentist will perform a visual exam of your mouth, which includes your teeth and surrounding soft tissue. He/she will check each individual tooth with an instrument called the explorer or dental probe. This instrument helps us detect any areas of concern on each tooth. We will check for decay, stain, areas around the gum line (to check for gum recession), and the margins around any existing fillings or crowns.

  • What is your tongue coating telling us about your health?

    What is your tongue coating telling us about your health?

    Whitening or coating of the tongue can occur when there is a buildup or coating of bacteria and debris on the surface of the tongue due to mild dehydration, illness (when there is less use of the tongue for talking or eating), or dryness of the mouth. A coated tongue is not a disease and is not usually a sign of anything serious. It’s usually only temporary.
    You can try gently brushing it with a tongue scraper and drinking plenty of water to help it improve.

    However, sometimes a coated tongue can indicate an infection or more serious condition. Whitening of the top layer of the tongue or the presence of white spots or patches on the tongue can also be seen with infection or chronic inflammation of the surface of the tongue. Certain oral infections, notably Candida yeast infections (known as oral thrush), are characterised by a white tongue. In contrast, some infections, like scarlet fever, can produce red spots on the tongue. Inflammation and whitening of the tongue can also occur due to dryness or environmental irritants such as smoking, and may be associated with bad breath. Inflammation of the tongue is known as glossitis. Some white patches on the tongue, known as leukoplakia, can be precancerous lesions.
