A healthy, beautiful smile is hard to come by if you are suffering from gum disease. One of our goals in providing you with excellent oral care is to help you avoid gum disease. What is gum disease, and is there just one type? Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert, Arizona, is here to help answer these questions. Gum disease is talked about a lot in oral healthcare, but let’s look more into it.

Gum disease blog

What is Gum Disease?

The bacteria that sit on your teeth and create plaque are the culprits behind gum disease. Gum disease is inflammation of the gum that can progress to affecting the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth. There are a couple of types of gum disease that can occur without proper prevention or treatment.

Types of Gum Disease

The longer bacteria is allowed to sit on your teeth, the more damage it can cause. The bacteria that form plaque secrete a toxin that irritates the gums. The beginning stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, which untreated can advance to periodontitis. If both these conditions are left untreated, you may experience tooth loss or other significant health problems.

  • *Gingivitis: This is the milder aspect of gum disease, as it is the beginning stages of bacteria sitting on the teeth. Since it is a mild form of periodontal disease, it may go unnoticed with little to no discomfort occurring, and is usually caused by lack of oral health care. Other aspects that could increase the risk of gingivitis forming include inadequate nutrition, stress, aging, smoking, diabetes, substance abuse, HIV infection and certain medication use. Symptoms of this stage include your gums turning red, swelling and bleeding easily. Treatment at this stage is positive, as it can be reversed through professional care from your dentist and good oral home care.
  • *Periodontitis: Untreated gingivitis leads to the more advanced stage of gum disease, which is periodontitis. This occurs when plaque and tartar build up on the surface of the tooth below your gum line, causing irritation, inflammation, and gum infection. Your gums begin to pull away from the tooth, allowing bacteria and food particles to build up even deeper in your gums. Greater levels of bacteria festering in your gums begins to affect your jaw bone, causing weakening. There are various stages of periodontitis based on the length of untreated gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss due to the lack of strength in the jaw bone.

 

In order to prevent gum disease as a whole, you need to have a great home oral care routine, as well as regular visits to your dentist. For more information regarding gum disease, contact Lifetime Family Dental today!

When people hear the words “root canal,” they usually begin to imagine a torturous, dreadful procedure. The truth is, the pain from the infection requiring a root canal procedure is the dreadful part, as anyone who has experienced it will testify. The procedure itself is not usually painful, in fact, it is a wonderful invention of modern dentistry that brings vast and welcome relief and the ability to enjoy life (and hot and cold foods!) again. Over ninety percent of the time, a root canal with Lifetime Family Dental is a gentle experience with limited to no discomfort and pain. We believe in providing the best care possible in Gilbert Arizona and surrounding areas to give you give you pain-free, genuine smile!

What is a Root Canal?

Beneath the white enamel and hard layer of your tooth is a soft tissue called pulp. The dental pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue that assist in the growth of your root. When a cavity or tooth fracture occurs, it allows bacteria to penetrate the pulp, causing infection, or an abscess. The infection can spread into the root canals and into the surrounding gum tissue. Inflammation of the nerve and surrounding area is the result, resulting in extreme pain.

Root canal blog

Symptoms of a Root Canal

Some symptoms to be aware of include:

*Swelling in the jaw that may spread to face or neck
*Drainage from the abscess
*Sensitivity to hot or cold

These are just a few symptoms to be aware of, but it is a good idea to consult your dentist whenever you are experiencing pain in your teeth or gums.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

A root canal may be the best option to treat and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. Root canal treatment is a minimally invasive dental surgery done in order to bring relief from immensely painful abscesses. It usually takes about an hour to perform, and is done with a local anesthetic. During the procedure, Dr. Norton opens a hole in the tooth to access the nerve canals. The infected pulp is removed, and the nerve canals are gently cleaned and sterilized. The inside of the tooth may be washed out with an antibacterial solution, and root canals that go down to the base of the tooth are sealed with dental putty for further stabilization as well as prevention of future infections.

Just reading the words “impacted teeth” may cause you to cringe. The pain can come out of nowhere, causing a putting a major stumbling block in your day. Dental and oral health are extremely vital to a healthy lifestyle. Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert Arizona has excellent, capable staff that can help you with all your cosmetic and general dentistry needs. We want to ensure you have a quality life without any dental pain.

Impacted teeth

What is an Impacted Tooth?

A tooth is considered impacted when the tooth is below the surface of the gums and unable to break through, or only partially break through. This can be a result of crowding of the teeth or limited space in the bone structure itself.

Signs

There is no reason to fear an impacted tooth when Lifetime Family Dental is close by, but there are some signs to pay attention to. These signs include:

  1. 1. Pain: Pain is your body’s trigger-light that something is not right. When you are experiencing pain in the back of your mouth, it can be a throbbing that does not go away. This may be due to your wisdom teeth being impacted, and if untreated, the pain can increase to other teeth around it.
  2. 2. Headaches or Jaw Ache: If your wisdom teeth are trying to come in, it can create immense pressure on your bone. The jaw bone connects to your head and skull, so impacted teeth can result in pressure headaches, with tender jaw bones.
  3. 3. Swelling: In order to compensate for the pain from your impacted tooth, your body may create swelling of the tissues around your tooth. Swelling and redness may start in the gum tissue around the impacted tooth, but then can spread to swelling of your jaw itself. Without treatment, infection is a possibility; your lymph nodes and glands in your neck may swell also.

 

If you are experiencing any of the above signs, you may be suffering from an impacted tooth. If this is the case, it is important for you to get it looked at by your experienced, friendly dentist at Lifetime Family Dental. We are passionate about providing services to give you the most pain-free, quality life possible. To learn more, contact us today!

Who doesn’t want to save time or money? When it comes to your overall oral health, there are ways you can avoid long, costly dental procedures. At Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert, Arizona, we know the benefits of great general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. However, we can also help you with preventative dentistry to save you time and money in the long run.

What is Preventative Dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is the practice of caring for your teeth to avoid the pitfalls of cavities, enamel wear, gum disease and more. By engaging in a few simple steps, you can save yourself pain, money and time. These simple steps require you to be mindful of yourself, and take time for self-care strategies. These include:

  • *Brushing Your Teeth Daily: This is something we have heard since we were children, but it is the simplest, and easiest way to engage in preventative dentistry. By cleaning your teeth regularly with toothpaste, you are able to remove the acid or bacteria left by foods that would eventually create holes in your teeth, or cavities.
  • *Flossing Regularly: A toothbrush can only get certain places, but by daily using floss to get the food stuck in the crevices, you can add one more safeguard against costly dental procedures.
  • *Eating a Balanced Diet: Certain fruits and vegetables can help strengthen your teeth by maintaining the nutrients needed.
  • *Visiting Your Dentist: An annual check-up with your dentist is highly recommended. If there are any oral health issues developing, your friendly dentist here at Lifetime Family Dental will be able to catch and treat them early. We will also be able to provide a professional cleaning.

These steps towards preventative dentistry are simple and time efficient. If you can get yourself into a daily routine, it will help you in the long run.

Benefits of Preventative Dentistry

There are some significant benefits to engaging in steps towards consistent oral health. The benefits include avoiding dental problems such as:

Avoiding the pain of dental problems is worth taking the extra ten minutes each day and an extra half-hour each year for a dental visit.

To discuss specific preventative dentistry for you, schedule an appointment with us today at Lifetime Family Dental!

We don’t often think much about our gums, but they are imperative to good oral health and can affect how we feel about our smile. A gum line that is too high or too low can not only cause dental problems, but can be unpleasing aesthetically. Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert, Arizona, can care for both your teeth and your gums. We understand how cosmetic dentistry is beneficial to your smile and your confidence.

Gum recontouring blog

Uneven Gum Line Causes

If you have gum lines that rise too high or are too low, you could be a good candidate for gum recontouring or reconstruction. What causes uneven gum lines? Several factors can play into this. When your gums cover a larger than normal portion of your teeth, it can be due to:

  • *Genetics
  • *Prescription Drug Use
  • *Health Problems

Gum recession is when the gums pull away from the teeth. This exposes the roots of the teeth and can make them appear too long. Uneven gum lines and correction procedures are often regarded as cosmetic dentistry to improve the look of your smile, but there are cases where gum recession is actually a dental health concern.

Possible Concerns

Uneven gum lines can be frustrating when you are wanting that pearly white smile to dazzle people with. A periodontal procedure may be conducted on the gums to improve the appearance of one’s smile, but often, it needs to be performed due to a serious health concern. When the gum line is too low and receding, this can cause issues with your dental health. As the gum pulls away from the tooth, exposing the root, it can cause:

  • *Tooth Decay or Periodontal Disease
  • *Loss of Teeth
  • *Structural Deterioration of Gums and Bone

If you think you may have gum recession, or are concerned about it, contact Lifetime Family Dental today for a professional opinion.

Buying toothpaste is a simple purchase, right? Not entirely. There is a lot to take into account when buying a toothpaste. Is bad breath control important to you? Do you need one specifically for whitening? Are your teeth extra sensitive? Do you need a toothpaste that covers a bit of everything? These options can create a dilemma when you are in the store looking at all the options. Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert, Arizona, wants to help you maintain a great oral hygiene routine. When your oral health is well maintained, you are able to able to relax and smile with ease. So for that smile’s sake, you need to be brushing your teeth with the right toothpaste! Each toothpaste is uniquely created to target different oral health needs.

Fluoride

Though everyone has their own specific oral health needs, everyone needs fluoride. Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen enamel and improve your oral health. Fluoride can:

  • *Reverse the effects of enamel wear and tear.
  • *Reduce tooth sensitivity.
  • *Fight against tooth decay.
  • *Target inflammation in the gums.

Fluoride is key to creating stronger teeth and better overall oral health.

Tartar Control

When regularly exposed to plaque, tartar can build up. Tartar is a hard mineral deposit which adds a yellow or brown tint to your teeth. This type of build-up is damaging to your teeth and allows tooth decay to fester. Finding a toothpaste that focuses on eliminating tartar is essential. Tartar prevention toothpaste breaks down plaque on the teeth and prevents tartar from forming. It is important to note that tartar control does not remove the plaque that has already built up below the gum line, but rather prevents it from forming.

Teeth Sensitivity

Daily eating and drinking acidic foods can cause enamel, the protective layer on the outside of our teeth, to break down. This can result in teeth being sensitive to heat and/or cold. Sensitive toothpaste can help relieve this painful condition. The toothpaste you choose should have approved sensitivity labeling from the American Dental Association (ADA). These products contain certain ingredients that make them less abrasive on your teeth, thus decreasing sensitivity.

Whitening

To gain the pearly white smile you’ve dreamed of, you may want to try whitening toothpaste. Most oral health products have some whitening properties in them, but there are specific toothpastes focusing on whitening. These use specific ingredients that help break down the stains on your teeth, creating a whiter, brighter smile. Not only do these products create whiter teeth, the main ingredient of peroxide can also help fight gingivitis and periodontal disease.

The main goal of toothpaste is to clean your teeth and assist you with great oral health. To fully understand your personal oral health needs, call on your general and cosmetic dentist at Lifetime Family Dental!

If you find that you have pain and bleeding following brushing your teeth, or have sensitivity with hot or cold water, or sweet foods, we can help! Lifetime Family Dental, located in Gilbert Arizona, wants to help with all your cosmetic dentistry needs, but also general dentistry to ensure the best functioning and the cleanest teeth possible. Having sensitive teeth can be a pain that is irritating, and one that is unnecessary. There are ways to help, and one way is to recognize causes for sensitive teeth.

Causes

Our daily living may help to increase the sensitivity in our teeth, but if we don’t know what that is, we cannot help it. Some issues causing sensitive teeth include:

  •   *Cavities
  •   *Exposed root
  •   *Gum disease
  •   *Worn down enamel
  •   *Tooth fractures

Whatever the cause of your sensitivity, Lifetime Family Dental can bring relief.

Ways to Help Sensitivity

To build a stronger protective layer around your teeth, there are several things you and your dentist can do to help decrease sensitivity. These include:

  •   *Fillings: For the bacteria that combines with the leftover food particles in your mouth, which creates holes in the tooth, these can be corrected through fillings by your dentist to decrease sensitivity.
  •   *Fluoride: Following in office fluoride treatments, gel impressions of your teeth are taken so you can continue regular treatments at home.
  •   *Gum Grafting: A periodontist will place gum tissue grafts where the gum has receded due to disease or trauma.
  •   *Root Canal: When a cavity or fracture causes an abscess in the tooth, a root canal can be done to improve the strength and viability of your tooth.
  •   *Toothpaste: A sensitive toothpaste can do wonders to help decrease the pain. It is important to get a recommended toothpaste from your friendly dentist that is specific to your needs.

Your best solution to any sensitivity is first discussing it with your dentist to rule out any serious issues. The irritation or pain is unnecessary for you to live with. Come see Lifetime Family Dental today to help with sensitivity and get your pain free smile back!

Testimony

You can take our word for it when we say we have excellent rapport with our patients, but you can also hear it straight from a patient themselves.

  • I went to this location off a recommendation from a friend, as they enjoyed their experience, so I figured I’d try it out. On my way there, I almost got sick to my stomach driving to the dentist because I dislike [dentists] so much! But that feeling changed as soon as I walked through the door. The staff at the front desk was wonderful and welcoming. When I sat down in the chair to get x-rays, they first make an effort to get to know you. Lifetime Family Dental has that personal connection with their patients. Next, Dr Norton explained everything that would need to be done. There was absolutely no pressure to do anything at this point, but I went ahead and got some fillings done. As I was getting the recommended work done, they let me watch Netflix to help time go by. I walked out to pay and they broke everything down to better explain what the Doc went over earlier. This was by far my best experience at a dentist office and I will definitely be back! I highly recommend this place to anyone! -Highly Encouraged Patient

When it comes to a new experience with the dentist, we would love to build a new idea of what going to the dentist means for you. There is no reason to fear the dentist or be scared of the procedures. We are a fair, friendly, and reasonable dental office that provides the best oral health practices possible. Our goal is ensure that you have the healthiest teeth and we will do our best to help you avoid time consuming and costly procedures through great preventative medicine. Come see us today to let us help you relax and smile!
