  • NB Dental - What is Your Dental IQ?
    Springs Dr McKay discovered that while high levels of fluoride in the local drinking water caused brown stains in the children s developing teeth the teeth were more resistant to decay Later it was determined that a lower level of fluoride 1 0 parts per million did not cause the brown stain but still made the teeth enamel more resistant to decay The first public water fluoridation program was established in Grand Rapids Michigan in 1945 We now have dramatic international scientific evidence demonstrating the reduction of cavities by more than 50 in communities that have fluoridated water 4 The average set of dentures will last 7 to 10 years However patients who wear dentures should not assume that they do not need to see a dentist for 7 to 10 years or when they need a new set Denture wears should have yearly follow up exams with their dentist to 1 Check the health of extraoral and intraoral soft tissues 2 Check bony tissues 3 Clean and check the integrity of the denture materials and 4 Check the fit of the dentures Frequently denture wearers need to have their dentures relined every 2 to 3 years to help tighten the fit of the dentures because the supporting bone continues to slowly shrink with time after teeth have been extracted 5 For immediate transport to the dentist s office a knocked out tooth can be stored in solutions of cool saline salt water milk saliva or simply in the injured person s mouth The tooth can initially be rinsed with cool water to remove dirt or blood then placed in the chosen solution But do not scrub the tooth There are important little ligaments on the root surfaces that need to remain attached to the tooth to allow for reattachment to the bone in the socket If you cannot get to the dentist or emergency room within one half hour rinse the tooth with cool water and place the tooth back in the socket as best you can The sooner the tooth is placed back in the socket the better the chance for the tooth to reattach to the bone Place cool moistened gauze or a wash cloth around the tooth to help immobilize the tooth and control swelling then transport the injured person to the emergency room or the dentist s office 6 It is a misconception that as we get older it is inevitable that we will get gum disease Research has found that gum disease is not entirely a function of age but more a result of poor lifestyle habits which have added up over time The primary factor in causing gum disease is poor oral hygiene including lack of regular professional care and smoking Thirty per cent of all persons between the ages of 19 and 25 already show signs of gum disease Gum disease actually starts at a young age and becomes evident as we get older and more difficult to treat 7 Most orthodontic
