Reasons Your Teeth May Hurt When You Get Up In the Morning
Posted on 3/15/2019 by Water's Edge Dental
When you wake up, do you ever experience tooth pain? It is not an uncommon problem, but it also is something that you should not ignore. There are several different reasons why you might have teeth pain in the morning. Here are some of them. BruxismBruxism is more commonly known as teeth grinding. Some people grind their teeth during the day, but for other people it is a nighttime issue. You might grind your teeth and not even know that you do it! Nighttime bruxism can cause pain when you wake up. It can also damage your teeth. There are several different treatments for bruxism. The best treatment for your neighbor may not be the best treatment for you, so you need to make an appointment. Infection If you have an infection in one or more teeth or in your gums, you could wake up with mouth pain. If the infection does not go away within a day or so, you need to make an appointment so that we can treat it. Allergies and SinusIf you suffer from allergies or a sinus condition, that could cause pain. That is because it will settle when you stay in one place without moving for several hours. There could be a simple solution for this. Try sleeping on the other side or on your back. If you wake up in the middle of the night, change your position. Any pain that lasts for more than a couple of days needs to be checked out. Most of the time, there is a fairly simple reason why you have pain when you wake up, and there is also a solution. We want to make sure that there are no underlying issues that are more serious. We also want to make sure that you no longer live in pain....

By following these tips and making oral hygiene a priority, you can drastically improve the health of your mouth. Get a Better ToothbrushIf your toothbrush is worn down with frayed bristles, swapping it out for a better model can make a big difference. Choose a toothbrush with round, soft bristles that doesn't hurt your gums. While a good toothbrush might cost a bit more than a cheap, ineffective option, the benefit for your teeth in the long-run is worth it. Start FlossingA lot of people really dislike flossing, but if you want to improve your oral hygiene and your dental health, it is important to start. Floss your teeth every day, and you'll notice an improvement in your gum health quickly. Rinse with MouthwashMouthwash doesn't just freshen the breath. Certain therapeutic mouth rinses can strengthen the teeth and treat oral health conditions.

Make a Dental AppointmentTo maintain good oral health, you need regular dental appointments. We recommend that you visit our office at least once every six months for optimal oral health. Our hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, while our dentist will check for any signs of a problem. Remember that preventive care and maintenance are essential for good oral health. By making better choices regarding your oral hygiene today, you'll be rewarded with healthy teeth and gums long into the future. Call us today to learn more....

How Ice Harms Your Teeth
Posted on 2/15/2019 by Water's Edge Dental
While chewing ice may provide relief from the summer heat, it may not be as harmless as you think. Here are some of the effects of chewing ice. Enamel DamageChewing on ice reduces the strength of the enamel thereby predisposing it to decay. This is the part of your teeth that ensures that biting, grinding, and chewing does not compromise the inner parts of the tooth. The more it is worn down, the more likely you are to develop tooth damage and other related complications such as sensitivity. Weakens FillingsWhen fillings are exposed to rapid changes in temperature, such as when you chew on ice, they tend to expand and contract. Because of this they become loose and need replacement much sooner. Gum InjuriesGums can easily be bruised or punctured as a result of chewing on ice as it is usually hard and sharp enough to cut the soft gum tissues. Cracks TeethThe pressure exerted on your teeth by frequently chewing on ice can, over time, cause tiny fractures in your teeth. These usually develop into much larger ones resulting in the need for expensive treatments such as root canals. SensitivityConstant exposure to high temperature can cause significant damage to the delicate and sensitive nerves that are located inside the teeth. Can Cause Headaches and Soreness Chewing ice can result in a mild or excoriating headache, jaw pain, and even brain freeze. In addition, irritating the inner delicate tissues in your teeth can cause a toothache. Underlying Problems If you find yourself constantly craving ice chewing, it could be a sign of underlying severe health concern, such as nutritional deficiencies (anemia), stress, OCD, or even developmental disorders. Call us today to book an appointment with one of our licensed dentists. Our goal is to promote your oral health through provision of high quality dental services. We look forward to seeing you....
