A Comprehensive Guide to What Causes Cavities

Comeaux Dental of The Woodlands & Spring in Texas will take a deeper dive into the causes of cavities. This is for both parents of young children and adults who are interested in a better understanding of these conditions. Since there is no way to restore large amounts of missing or damaged teeth structure, treatment for cavities is focused on prevention.

What are Dental Caries (Cavities), and how do they work?

Dental caries, or Latin "rot", also known as tooth decay, or a "cavity", is a bacterial infection that results in the destruction and demineralization of the hard tissues (enamels, dentins, and cementum) of the teeth. Acid is produced by bacteria from food debris that has accumulated on the tooth's surface. The following factors can cause demineralization of teeth: Carbohydrates, plaque, and dry mouth are more common than factors that help to remineralize teeth (i.e. Tooth decay can occur due to the presence of saliva, calcium, fluoride, and saliva. Dental decay is the most common childhood chronic disease. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, 60% of children will experience tooth decay before they turn five.

Teeth Cleaning at Comeaux Dental The Woodlands & Spring

Your health can be affected by the condition of your mouth and teeth. Poor oral hygiene can have serious consequences if it isn't taken care of. To maintain optimal dental health, Comeaux Dental the Academy of General Dentistry recommends regular brushing and flossing.

Professional teeth cleaning has many benefits. It is a great preventative measure against gum disease, tooth decay, and other complex dental problems. Your dentist will be able to spot problems early if your teeth are properly cleaned.

Dr. Ryan Comeaux and his team at Comeaux Dental are looking forward to helping patients take this important step towards improving their oral health.

Benefits of a Dental Cleaning at Comeaux Dental in The Woodlands & Spring

A routine dental cleaning begins with a thorough dental exam by Dr. Comeaux or one of the skilled staff members. During your dental cleaning, Dr. Comeaux and his staff will examine your gums and teeth.  We will look for signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities. During the exam, you will be able to discuss any dental concerns or issues with your dentist and also discuss home remedies to improve your oral health.

Once the dentist has finished the exam, it is time for the cleaning. This procedure is handled by a skilled dental hygienist. Professional teeth cleaning procedure is painless and simple. Patients love the instant cosmetic results and the fresh, minty feeling that follows treatment. Your dental hygienist can also clean your teeth and check for any periodontal disease or gingivitis.

Professional Teeth Cleaning Removes Plaque and Bacteria

The bacteria living in your mouth are constantly growing. Regular brushing and avoiding sugary foods will help keep bacteria away. Plaque, a naturally occurring layer on teeth that allows bacteria to flourish, is an example. Bad breath, tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss can result.

If plaque is not removed regularly, tartar forms at the gum line. A dental hygienist must remove tartar as it can lead to gum disease. The hygienist removes tartar with an ultrasonic scaler or hand scaler, mirror, and a water gun to rinse. This is a common procedure during a dental clean. It is possible to keep this procedure to a minimum by flossing and brushing your teeth at home.

Cleaning and Polishing your Teeth

Your Comeaux Dental The Woodlands & Spring dental hygienist cleans and polishes the teeth using a professional-grade electric toothbrush. Your hygienist then applies gritty toothpaste to remove any tartar and clean your teeth more vigorously than home brushes.

Your dental hygienist will clean your teeth and then floss between them as the final step of the teeth cleaning process. You may choose to have a fluoride treatment after flossing and rinsing.

Comeaux Dental hygienists have the skills and training to polish and clean your teeth without causing damage to the enamel. This allows you to relax and enjoy the process.

Maintaining Proper Oral Hygiene

Follow any recommendations or instructions given by your dentist, including scheduling follow-up appointments. Keep your teeth clean at home by brushing and flossing regularly.

How to Prevent and Treat Sensitive Teeth

When you have sensitive teeth, eating or drinking anything that’s not at room temperature can cause pain. You might even feel a throbbing sensation when a cold wind blows against your mouth. Tooth sensitivity is a common problem with many possible causes. Before delving into them, it’s important to understand the structure of the tooth.

Tooth Structure and Dental Hypersensitivity 

The inside of each of your teeth contains a material called dentin. The dentin has tiny tubules and nerve endings. Each tooth also has a hard-outer layer of enamel that protects the dentin located inside of the top portion of the tooth. We also refer to this part of the tooth as the crown. A layer of cementum protects the dentin that reaches down into the root portion of each of your teeth. The pain of tooth sensitivity occurs when the protective coating of cementum or enamel wears away from the dentin. Acidic, sticky, cold, or hot foods and beverages are common triggers for pain.

Reasons You Might Grind Your Teeth and How to Stop

Most people grind their teeth occasionally, whether they realize it or not. Fortunately, periodic teeth grinding causes no lasting damage to the teeth or jaws. It’s only when the teeth grinding becomes a habit that it also becomes a cause for concern. Medically known as bruxism, chronic grinding of the teeth can lead to long-term oral health complications such as wearing the tooth down to a stump, cracked or fractured teeth, loose teeth, infection, and more. These problems increase the likelihood of major dental interventions such as tooth extraction, root canals, dentures, implants, bridges, and crowns.

Why Do People Grind Their Teeth?

Perhaps you can relate to the feeling of experiencing so much stress that you instinctively grind your teeth as a means of coping. In fact, stress is the top reason that people develop this habit in the first place. It can also develop due to existing problems with your teeth and jaws such as crooked teeth, missing teeth, or a bite that doesn’t fully come together.
