Good oral hygiene is an important part of preventing larger dental issues. Prevention is always the better cure and can be obtained by working with your dentist through routine appointments. In this society with lifestyles as busy as they can be, it is easy to ignore something as simple, yet as important, as good dental care. It is often one of the first parts of a healthy lifestyle that can be overlooked in a very busy society. The problem with neglecting this one part of the puzzle is that often we have no idea how this actually impacts the bigger picture.

Poor oral health in fact can also be linked to many other conditions that you would not normally think of in conjecture with oral health care. Some of the effects that this can have include heart and lung disease, diabetes, increased chance of stroke, low-birth weight, premature births, and often adds to a couples' possibility of infertility. Often, diseases give their first warning signs in the form of oral problems. Many of these issues can simply be avoided by preventative dentistry and good health habits in regards to oral health care.

Parents with newborns already have a lot on their mind. Not only are they constantly worried about the way their child is growing, how to handle vaccinations, and wondering about the child’s future, parents are also usually sleep deprived and stressed. The last thing they want to think about is their child’s teeth, especially since their child does not yet have any. The reality is that the first tooth is going to erupt sooner than the parent expects and when this happens, they are going to have to start thinking about finding a good pediatric dentist and booking their child’s very first appointment.

One of the mistakes a parent can make is waiting too long to start taking their child to the dentist. Delays can have serious physical and psychological repercussions. While it is true that the child is going to lose their baby teeth, they are going to need them for the first several years of their life. If there is something wrong with the baby teeth, the child’s nutritional health could be compromised. Another reason to make sure that the child gets into see the dentist before their first birthday is because there are some health problems can be identified early by the dentist.

Tooth enamel is the hardest part of our body. The reason it is so hard is because it has to withstand the grinding process that we put it through each time we eat something. While the tooth enamel is hard, it is prone to eroding. It usually does not take us very long to realize that the enamel is starting to erode. The first indication is that the tooth is sensitive, either to temperature or touch. After that the symptoms increase until we are in pain. If the erosion is bad enough it can make eating and drinking very uncomfortable.

Just because you have not noticed any pain or sensitivity it does not mean that the enamel on your teeth is not slowly eroding. That is one of the reasons why it is so important that you go to the dentist at least two times a year. While the dentist is cleaning your teeth, they are going to be looking for signs that the enamel is starting to erode. The signs that they are looking for include a slight discoloration, the edges and corners of your teeth are starting to look rounded, and that your teeth have developed little dips which is called cupping.

Chipped teeth happen. People who play rough and tumble sports like hockey, football, or soccer know that they are a very real risk. As a person ages and their teeth become more worn and the enamel starts to thin, their teeth will also become more prone to chipping. If one of your teeth does get chipped it is important to stay calm. There is no need to panic; the damage has already been done. The only thing you can do know is book an appointment with your dentist so that they can access the damage and decide the best course of action.

What you should not do when you have chipped a tooth is put off going to the dentist. This is silly. The longer the tooth is left, the more extensive the damage could become. Plus, if the tooth chipped and you were not playing a sport or eating something that could cause the tooth to break, the first chip could indicate that you have an oral problem that needs to be addressed. The longer you put off seeing the dentist the more severe the damage is going to become and the more expensive repairing the chipped tooth is going to be.
