What should you do with a broken tooth?
Your teeth are extremely strong and durable, but they can fracture or break in certain situations. If you have cavities that weaken the tooth, it makes them susceptible to breaking more easily. Additionally, biting on something hard, falling, or suffering trauma to the face can also break a tooth. If you are struggling with a broken tooth in Delray Beach, dental crowns might be the answer.
Make a Dentist Appointment
The first thing you should do when you discover you have a broken tooth, is to make an appointment with your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist. Most likely, they will want to talk to you about dental crowns, since this is a common way to treat a broken tooth. Dental crowns take only a few weeks from start to finish, then your tooth will have the image and stability it before the break.
Caring for the Broken Tooth
You may not get into your doctor’s office for dental crowns right away, so there are some things you should do at home to care for the tooth. Rinse out your mouth with warm water to clean any bacteria and place gauze on it if it is bleeding. Once the bleeding has stopped, apply a cold compress to your cheek or lips to help reduce swelling. This can also help relieve pain until you get to your dentist. Take over-the-counter pain medications as needed.
Multiple treatment options are available for a broken tooth in Delray Beach, but dental crowns are one of the most common treatments. If your tooth is not completely broken but just has a minor crack or chip, you may be able to polish and smooth out the tooth. However, for broken teeth or fractured teeth, a crown is needed. This is not just for cosmetic reasons, but because the crown helps protect your natural tooth from breaking off entirely and needing a bridge, partial denture, or dental implant. Dental crowns, when placed early enough, save your broken teeth.

Categories:Periodontal Disease, Bleeding Gums, Gum DiseaseAuthor:Dr. Jay AjmoDate:2014-07-02
Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the gums, bones and other structures that support your teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause you to lose your teeth. Recent medical research is now proving that this bacteria in your mouth travels through your bloodstream to other organs of your body. This bacteria has also been found to increase the risk and severity of other health related issues such as diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease, pre-term and low birth weight babies and osteoporosis. Common symptoms of periodontal disease are red, puffy or bleeding gums, foul odor or taste in your mouth, loose teeth and receded gums. When your gums are healthy, they do not bleed, even in the hygiene chair at PGA Dentistry in Jupiter, FL. Bleeding gums indicate that there is bacteria and plaque and calculus can cause infection says Dr. Jay Ajmo. Periodontal disease typically does not hurt until adv

Dental x-rays, also called dental radiographs, are essentially pictures of teeth, bones and soft tissues which are used to help diagnose and treat any dental issue that may arise. Dental x-rays can find cavities, hidden dental structures such as malignant or benign masses, wisdom teeth and bone loss that cannot be found during a dental examination at PGA Dentistry in Palm Beach, FL. A radiographic image is a technique that uses electromagnetic radiation to view the internal structure of the teeth and jaw. A burst of radiation penetrates the structure and depending on its density will show light and dark areas. Cavities, infections and changes in bone density will appear darker because these structures are less dense. There are many concerns about radiation exposure, but according to the American Dental Association, the amount of radiation is typically minimal.

Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth colored material that are designed to cover the facial surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are used to correct worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration and chips or cracks to improve the appearance of your smile. Porcelain veneers are generally considered cosmetic because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned teeth, but ultimately they protect the surface of damaged teeth and can possibly eliminate the need for additional, more extensive treatments. Other benefits include durability, improved smile appearance, and minimally invasive removal of the tooth structure compared to crowns. Porcelain veneers are designed to fix many types of problems such as discolored teeth, due to root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, worn down, broken teeth, misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped teeth and gaps or spaces

Tooth loss is a fact of life for many people. For some, it comes earlier in life than for others. You may need to replace one or two teeth as the result of an accident, or you may need to replace all of your teeth due to gum disease or other dental health concern. Regardless of the circumstances, dental implants will provide you with a full set of teeth, and the opportunity for the highest quality of life in Delray Beach, Florida. Life with Dentures When dentures were first released to the consumer market, many people were thrilled because they made it possible for them to enjoy real food after losing their natural teeth. Unfortunately, life with dentures is not often convenient or particularly comfortable. They must always be glued in tight before meals and snacks, and even then, denture wearers cannot eat many hard, tough foods. In addition, dentures need to be removed at night, another inconvenience.

The next time you think, “I’ll floss tomorrow,” or the kids say, “We promise to floss in the morning,” you might want to revisit your oral healthcare strategy. While brushing removes surface plaque, it misses up to 40% hiding between teeth! This is worrisome because plaque buildup cannot only lead to tooth decay, but also to gum disease which is linked to over 200 other diseases. Flossing isn’t difficult, but kids may need a refresher and seniors who belong to a generation that never learned how to floss might need a lesson. Call today to ensure your family’s regular checkups are scheduled and we’ll give everyone a flossing refresher. With “know how”, a touch of motivation and a little self-discipline, excellent home care goes a long way to ensure a healthy smile for life. Call today to book your family’s regular checkups.

Crowns are placed over the two teeth surrounding the gap where your missing tooth was once located. These teeth will serve to anchor the bridge, which sits in the space left by the missing tooth. The bridge will look just like one of your natural teeth. The goal is to fill the hole and restore your natural smile.

Is your big-grin smile showing less gum that it used to? Gum recession is a common problem in North America, especially for those over 40. And it shouldn’t be taken lightly. Receding gums can warn of periodontal disease, stroke and some cancers. Although the leading cause of receding gums is gum disease, there are many more and all of them can open the door to gum infection and periodontitis. *Hormone fluctuations: Hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy and menopause can make gums sensitive and more likely to recede. *Over-brushing: Aggressive brushing can wear away enamel and increase risk for gum recession. *Grinding, clenching and an uneven bite: All can put excessive force on the teeth and jaws, causing gums to recede. *Tobacco use: Smokers are more likely to have plaque and tartar buildup which can cause gum recession. *Mouth piercings: Jewelry can rub the gum and wear away gum tissue.

Categories:Fluoride, Healthy Mouth, Tooth EnamelAuthor:Dr. Jay AjmoDate:2014-03-07
The mineral fluoride was first introduced to toothpastes and municipal water in the ‘50’s because of its ability to harden tooth enamel and fight decay-causing bacteria. But now, almost 80 years later, the war on cavities just got a little dirtier. Recent findings indicate that the bacteria that cause cavities can now fend off fluoride, brilliantly working to sabotage its tooth-positive effects. Scientists don’t know how bacteria does this, but when they do, it will offer the means to create an oral health regimen that is more bacteria-hostile. But wait! Don’t abandon fluoride! Using fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, and flossing once a day, continues to be your best defense against plaque buildup and cavities. Regular professional hygiene (cleaning) appointments are also critical to maintaining your healthy smile.
