The Benefits Of Same-Day Crowns

Posted on 4/25/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
People with damaged teeth may consider same-day crowns. Dental crowns can help cover, protect, and restore or maintain the look and sturdiness of your teeth. Same-day crowns such as CEREC crowns are made of durable material and are designed using computer-aided technology. The Procedure of Installing Dental Crowns Our dentist will examine your teeth and gums and capture digital images of your teeth that need crowning. Our team will create a digital model of the teeth using CAD/CAM software to develop a digital replica of the teeth. A 3D printer processes the digital model that we use to create the crown from a material such as ceramic. It takes about 15 minutes or so to create the crown. Our dentist polishes the dental crown and fits it inside your mouth. Why Get a Same-day Crown? Same-day crowns offer many advantages. They fix your tooth in one day. In only one appointment, our dentist will provide a dental crown that looks real and appealing like your original tooth. Same-day tooth crowning is a simple tooth restoration procedure for a broken or chipped tooth. If you have a loose or missing filling, you can benefit from crowning. Moreover, this procedure does not involve messy dental impressions like the use of silicon trays. We use computer-assisted design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to capture optimal representations of the teeth and jaw before developing a crown. Same-day crowns such as CEREC crowns are pretty durable because they are fabricated from strong materials like porcelain. Last but not least, these crowns look like your real teeth with a shade that matches your teeth' color. Getting same-day crowns provides you with increased control over the crown's exact shade. If you are looking for a solution to restore and strengthen a weakened or damaged tooth, think of same-day crowns. Schedule an appointment with us for same-day crown installation....

Jaw sprain or jaw strain symptoms and treatments

Posted on 4/11/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
A jaw sprain is a musculoskeletal disorder that is from a traumatic experience or having a mechanical injury that strains the jaw and muscles that surround the jaw. Having trauma to the jaw means that the jaw has been hit hard, bruxism, wide yawning, lengthy dental appointments, and even dental injections. Our dental team will treat you if you have a sprain or strain to the jaws. Spain and Strain A sprain means that there is excessive stretching of the ligaments and this can even tear them. Jaw sprain can even be around the ligaments that surround the jaw when they get stretched more than normal. The tearing varies and is mild or severe tearing. Strain means that there is an injury to the tendons or the muscles and this can be because of constraints on the muscle fibers. Treatment of strain and sprain of the jaw During dental checkups ensure that you ask for a break so that the jaw will relax. It is good to take anti-inflammatory before seeing a dentist for a checkup. If the pain is too much during the checkup you can ask the dentist to reschedule the appointment. You can also use cold and hot compresses when you experience a strain on the muscles Apply cold on tender places to reduce inflammation. Using a hot compress will allow oxygen supply to be increased and nutrients will be taken to damaged areas much easier and faster. Massage will help in the reduction of swollen inflammation and also allow for good blood circulation. Eat foods that are not hard so that the mouth is not exposed to pressure. Our dentists will give you guidance on things to do when examining to ensure that you do not strain....

Did You Know Turmeric Can Help You Get A Better Smile?

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Water's Edge Dental
Turmeric has been used for centuries in India as a spice, possessing powerful medicinal properties. Nowadays, many people are turning to the use of turmeric because of its anti-inflammatory and analgesic benefits. If you're looking to improve your oral health with this ancient herb, check out these ways that turmeric can benefit your oral care routine!  Teeth whitening This is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Whitening toothpaste can be effective, but many people prefer using strips or gels to make teeth appear whiter over time. Unfortunately, whitening products are expensive and may not even work on specific stains. Fortunately, turmeric is a safe alternative that you can use at home for more affordable results! Turmeric contains curcuminoids which have powerful antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals throughout your body to prevent oxidative damage from occurring within cells. If you suffer from sensitive teeth, this could cause staining and discomfort when eating hot foods such as soup or tea- turmeric's antioxidants may alleviate these symptoms by protecting against further tissue irritation. Prevention of plaque formation and gingivitis When plaque becomes trapped in the gums, it can cause inflammation and bleeding. This is a precursor to gum disease, which can eventually lead to heart disease if left untreated. A study published by the Journal of Periodontology found that curcumin from turmeric may help prevent periodontitis because of its ability to inhibit inflammatory reactions associated with plaque formation. Fights infection Turmeric may help fight infection because of its antioxidant properties. This is especially important for gum disease or other oral infections since antibiotics are often prescribed to treat bacterial overgrowth in the mouth.    Pain and inflammation management in the mouth Turmeric is a natural analgesic that can help reduce pain and inflammation. This makes it beneficial for those with sensitive teeth, oral sores, or ulcers. Additionally, turmeric may be able to help reduce swelling associated with oral surgery procedures. We've touched on the many powerful ways turmeric can help with oral health, but there is so much more to explore. If you want to learn about all of these benefits and how they work, please come in for a visit or call us at (208) 391-8554. We would love to answer any questions or hear your thoughts!...
