Typical Symptoms for Those Who Have Nighttime Bruxism

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
Bruxism is an oral condition that makes you grind, clench, or gnash your teeth. If you have bruxism, you tend to unconsciously grind or clench your teeth while sleeping. This is commonly referred to as sleep bruxism. You could also grind your teeth when awake, a condition called awake bruxism. Experts consider bruxism to be a sleep-related disorder. Knowing some of the symptoms of this condition will help you manage it better. They include; Teeth Clenching or Grinding Clenching or grinding of teeth is the most common symptom of bruxism. If you have this condition, you will unconsciously clench or grind your teeth. This mostly happens when you are sleeping. Grinding and clenching of teeth can be so loud that it wakes the person sleeping next to you. Remember that continued grinding and clenching of teeth can cause significant damage to your teeth. It could also weaken your teeth structure and interfere with the surrounding gum tissues. Fractured Teeth Another common sign of bruxism is fractured teeth. If you continuously clench and grind your teeth, they will become loose, chipped, flattened, or fractured. If you have a loose or fractured tooth, you should come to our offices immediately. Our dentists will use specialised equipment like dental crowns to fix them. In some cases, we use dental fillings to fix chipped teeth. The Enamel is Exposed Continual bruxism could expose your tooth enamel. By repeatedly clenching or grinding your teeth, you wear down the tough outer layer of your tooth called the enamel. Within a short period, the enamel wears down completely can no longer protect your tooth. This makes your tooth vulnerable to bacterial attack and you risk developing conditions like cavities and tooth decay. This is why it is vital to protect your teeth again any effects of bruxism.

Gum Disease And Your Risk Of Stroke

Posted on 9/5/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
Experts know that there exists a link between gum infection and cardiovascular events. Oral presentations conducted at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference showed that gum disease, inflammation, and hardening of arteries may be associated with stroke risk. Understanding how gum disease relates to a stroke can help you make informed choices about your oral health. It also helps dentists identify aspects that are related to gum disease and the risk for stroke. The Los Angeles International Stroke Conference 2020 – February 19th to 21st In the presentation, it was cited that two studies had raised the possibility that combating gum disease by treating it alongside reducing other stroke risk factors is likely to minimize the severity of plaque buildup in arteries. It also minimizes the narrowing of the brain's blood vessels, which often contributes to new and recurring strokes. That being said, the two studies featured in the presentation did not conclude that there was a cause-and-effect relationship existing between blockage of artery or stroke risks and gum disease. Important Points to Note! The studies from which the oral presentation was derived suggested that treatment for gum disease and other risk factors for stroke was able to lower the risk for stroke. Additionally, gum bacteria referred to as P. gingivalis was spotted in carotid arteries, two major arteries supplying blood to the neck, face, and brain. Besides, gum infection bacteria referred to as strep sp DNA was discovered in the brain's blood vessels. Lastly, gum disease was connected to strokes that arise from hardening large arteries found within the brain. It also was linked to severe artery blockages. The studies also showed that patients who had gum disease were thrice as likely to get a stroke that involves blood vessels found in the back area of the brain, where vision control and other vital body functions happen. With this information, it is paramount that people take gum and mouth health seriously. Combating and preventing gum disease can minimize the dangers of suffering stroke.

Why Is Extraction Necessary

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
The purpose of tooth extraction is to remove a problematic tooth, a tooth that cannot be saved due to its position in the mouth, or a tooth that must be removed to make room for another type of treatment, such as orthodontics. Administer some local anesthetic to numb the tooth and the tissues surrounding it. This is appropriate for a tooth that has erupted naturally. The removal of an impacted tooth could be beneficial. When a tooth cannot come out because it is barred from doing so or because the gums did not completely erupt around it, this condition is known as an impacted tooth. When it comes to wisdom teeth, this is often the case. Your dentist may advise that you have the damaged tooth removed to protect the health of your other teeth from the potential damage it might cause. Extraction is necessary Under Specific Circumstances Tooth extraction may be required if there is excessive dental decay, an infection of a tooth, or excessive crowding of the teeth. People who obtain braces could need the removal of one or two teeth to provide space for their other teeth as they shift into position.
