Brush: but the right way!

Good dental habits are the cornerstone of good oral health. Even so, patients who diligently brush their teeth can still get a bad report from the dentist if they’re not using the proper technique.

In fact, brushing your teeth too hard can be almost as bad for your teeth and gums as not brushing at all! There are a number of issues that can arise due to this bad habit.

Receding gums is a common dental problem in patients who brush their teeth too vigorously. The irritation caused by this action can lead to inflammation in the gums and shrinkage of the gum tissue.

When the gums recede, it has an unattractive effect on the smile. It can also lead to increased tooth sensitivity. If the problem becomes severe enough, your dentist may need to give you a gum graft to repair the damage.

“Brushing your teeth too hard can be almost as bad for your teeth and gums as not brushing at all!”

You can also cause premature wear to your teeth by brushing too hard. While tooth enamel may be one of the hardest substances in the body, it’s still not impervious to outside forces. Brushing too hard can break down the enamel and cause it to erode. The body is not capable of replacing missing enamel, so you may need to have the tooth restored with a filling or a crown.

To avoid these negative consequences, not only do you have to pay attention to the pressure you apply while brushing your teeth, you also need to be sure that you aren’t using a toothbrush with bristles that are too hard.

A good oral hygiene routine is well-balanced, with just the right amount of tooth brushing — not too much and not too little. If you think you may be using a poor brushing technique, ask your dentist or hygienist for some tips the next time you are in the office. Your oral health will reap many benefits if you get on track with your brushing!

Wisdom teeth not so wise at times... :)

Warning Signs Of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Impacted wisdom teeth are trying to erupt but are unable to do so because there is no sufficient room for them to emerge. This usually means that your wisdom teeth are painfully lodged in your jaw bone.        
        While you may not see any real signs of the emerging wisdom teeth when they are impacted, what you can’t see can still definitely hurt you. Some of the Indicators of Impacted Wisdom Teeth are listed below:
·         Jaw Pain:  Pain in the back of your jaw is a common indicator of impacted wisdom teeth. The pain often concentrates in the area around your gums.
·         Changes in the mouth:  You may notice some changes in your mouth when you have impacted wisdom teeth. Reddish gums, swelling in the jaw, bleeding gums, crowding of teeth and Bad breath can all be indicators that you are dealing with Impacted Wisdom Teeth.
·         Headaches:  If you suddenly start having headaches, especially at the same time as some of the other issues mentioned above, they may indicate Impacted Wisdom Teeth.
·         Chewing Issues:  Problems with chewing normally can indicate Impacted Wisdom Teeth. If you are having trouble making the chewing motions because your mouth won’t quite open and close as easily as it used to, Impacted Wisdom Teeth may be the culprit.
The Solution:  If you are suffering from Impacted Wisdom Teeth, the best solution is usually going to be removal. This is not a problem that will resolve naturally, and in fact, your pain and other symptoms may worsen as your wisdom teeth become increasingly impacted.  Medication gives relief only for a shorter duration and the pain might reoccur only to be of a much more grave intensity.
