Tips to Take Care of Your Gums Gum problems are caused by thick germs clinging to gums and teeth. www.huffdentistry.com 1

Welcome to Huff Family Dentistry:

Welcome to Huff Family Dentistry While the aforementioned point stands true, let's try to understand what is a gum disease? Gum problems are caused by thick germs clinging to gums and teeth. Gum treatment starts with figuring out what kind you have. If your gums are puffy or you see blood in the sink when you brush, you might be looking at the early stages. If you experience severe gum and bone damage, it could be the more advanced Periodontitis. Either way, you’ll need to commit to a new routine to solve it, incorporating brushing, flossing and rinsing. 2

Prevention and Gum Care in Lafayette LA:

Gum disease is an inflammation of the gums that can progress to affect the bone that surrounds and supports your teeth. It is caused by the bacteria in plaque, a sticky, colorless film that constantly forms on your teeth. If not removed through daily brushing and flossing, plaque can build up and the bacteria infect not only your gums and teeth, but eventually the gum tissue and bone that support the teeth. This can cause them to become loose, fall out or have to be removed by a dentist. 3 Prevention and Gum Care in Lafayette LA If you ask your Dentist in Lafayette, LA, you will be advised about how to do Prevention and Gum Care in Lafayette LA , but let's understand the basics first.

Cut Sugar Intake:

4 Cut Sugar Intake Sugar is the number one cause of plaque; ask your dentist for confirmation, if you like. When combined with the bacteria in your mouth, it is a true recipe for dental disaster.

Increase Milk Intake:

Increase Milk Intake Milk and other dairy foods such as cheese and yogurt are not only packed with bone-fortifying calcium, but also with the protein casein. 5

Cosmetic Dentistry:

Cosmetic Dentistry Cosmetic dentistry is a great way to cost-effectively improve your appearance. 6 Crowns (also referred to as caps) are needed when a tooth is badly decayed or fractured to the point that a regular filling won’t solve the problem. Crowns also are used to protect and strengthen the teeth when damage and decay has made it so that there is not enough tooth structure to support large fillings or prevent future fractures. If you are in need of a crown, the first step will be to remove the decay and clean your tooth. We will then create a mold of the surface so that a model of your tooth can be created and an accurate crown that will fit your tooth can be made in a special laboratory. Once this custom-made crown is created, we will prepare the surface of your tooth and cement the crown onto it.

General Treatments:

Crowns Crowns (also referred to as caps) are needed when a tooth is badly decayed or fractured to the point that a regular filling won’t solve the problem. Crowns also are used to protect and strengthen the teeth when damage and decay has made it so that there is not enough tooth structure to support large fillings or prevent future fractures. Bridges A dental bridge is an excellent way to replace a missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. A bridge is a single appliance that is typically attached to two teeth on each side of the space where a tooth is missing. An artificial tooth is attached to the middle of the bridge, therefore filling in the gap where the missing tooth was. It works very similar to natural teeth. Implants In cases where more than one tooth is missing, several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth. This is known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for people who no longer have their natural teeth, greatly improving one’s chewing ability. General Treatments 7 A composite filling is a quartz-like material that is the color of a tooth, so that you can maintain a beautiful, white smile.
