When the pH of your mouth drops to 5.5 demineralization of your teeth occur.
Say you have a soda at 9 am and you slowly drink it till 12. Your mouth is in a constant state of demineralization because the pH is below 5.5. VS. Having a soda at 9 am and drinking it within 20 minutes.
Limit the exposure time to acidic foods
Swishing with water after acidic foods/ meals
Making sure you have a good amount of saliva
*if you suffer from dry mouth talk to us🙂
Happy Wednesday!!! We miss you all terribly dental family! We pray you are well, we pray you are safe. Never forget we are ALWAYS here for you, not just as you’re dental professionals but as your friends and family! Our staff has been keeping quite busy with beautiful projects around the house and with their families! What are some things you are doing to help pass this time until we can see each other again? ❤️ Post below so we can hear all about your adventure!
Have we talked to you about gingival grafting (also known as gum graft)?
This is a nice visual of before and after grafting 😳
Why would grafting need to be done? Recession or potentially not enough attached gingiva remaining.
The first picture shows the area of recession and it looks to be about 3-4mm’s. As we have said before you can not grow gums back ( I’m sure some day you might 😉). Maybe you have noticed this or your Dr./ Hygienist. We usually recommend grafting because we are concerned with the root exposure causing sensitivity, caries, infection or even tooth loss.
We usually refer you to a periodontist (gum specialist) to have a consult to go over options/ prognosis and cost😷.
What is this?
If you stated tartar, calculus, or build up you are correct!!!
This is a couple before and after pictures. This is what your hygienist is removing in your mouth when you come in.
-Some people build up more than others.
-Some calculus comes off easier than others.
- This also builds up under the gums
How do you prevent or limit?
- Brushing 2x's daily
-Flossing 1x daily (nightly preferred)
-Mouthwash ( we like to recommend listening total care/ ACT)
-Additional home care aids recommended by your hygienist.
- Regular routine cleanings based on your hygienist/Dr. recommendations. We usually recommend 3, 4, or 6 month routine preventative cleaning or Periodontal Maintenance.
When we take Annual Xray’s of your teeth we are not just looking for cavities but also bone level. We can compare previous and current Xray’s to see if periodontal disease/bone loss is progressing. 😷
Yay! Sutherland DDS team! At Christmas we picked items to donate to this organization and medical supplies was on a few of our peeps list. Makes us proud to be a part of you, Samaritan's Purse! #forsuchatimeasthis #loveourteam
Samaritan's Purse has been asked to help in New York as the state and their medical infrastructure has been overwhelmed by the coronavirus. This morning six tractor trailers left our office in NC with a 68-bed emergency field hospital, medical supplies, and equipment. An advance team including one of our doctors left last night and is there now with a larger medical team to follow. Dr. Elliott Tenpenny said, “It’s important that we help because this is what we’re called to do as Christians. We help those who are in the ditch of life.” Please pray as we respond in Jesus’ Name.
Thursday’s Tip of the Day-
The 3 causes of wear 🤔
The picture really explains it all, but I would like to elaborate on Abrasion.
Abrasion is more of a smooth circular wear around the gum line of your teeth.
You may also hear us say the term Abfraction which like an abrasion happens at the gum line. The difference is an Abfraction looks like a wedge or notch has been taken out of the tooth at the gum line.
Abfractions are caused by aggressive brushing, clenching/grinding, or even malocclusion (an imperfect bite).
So really... The 4 causes of tooth wear 🤷🏼♀️
Our tip for today is to make sure you change out your toothbrush or toothbrush head every 3-4 months. Unless you notice the bristles are becoming frayed you should change out sooner.
* But Why change out your brush🤔
🙋🏼♀️ Toothbrushes build up bacteria as well as loose effectiveness over time. When you have a broke down toothbrush you are not removing the plaque and bacteria like you should. Thus causing your oral condition to worsen 😢.
*** If your fraying the brush pretty extensively prior to three months, then most likely you are brushing to aggressively. This will not only cause damage to the brush but also your gums 👎🏻
Happy Tuesday Everyone! Are you ready for Tuesdays Tip- Sonicare vs. Oral B.
We get asked all the time which one is better Sonicare or Oral B🦷
*From a hygienist/ personal perspective You can’t go wrong either way. I have both, and both work great. My preference is the Sonicare!
What’s the difference?
*Sonicare- Produces Sonic vibrations that creates micro bubbles that help get deep in the pockets giving the extra clean feeling. Has a humming sound as it works. (reminds me of a hummingbird)
*Oral B- Has a circular brush head, that has a osculating/rotating motion. Oral B’s brushing motion also helps get that deep clean feeling, that you just can’t get with a manual brush. This brush is a little louder than the Sonicare.
** Both brushes are set to 2 minutes to make sure you are brushing for the recommended time😉.
**A huge pro to Oral B is all the brush models have the pressure indicator light 💡. This light tells you when you are brushing your teeth to hard🛑.This feature is only on certain models of Sonicare 🤷🏼♀️
There are times when I recommend one over the other, but we see great results with both! Attached are web links for both if you would like to research further 💜
Hope this helps!
Since we can’t do much at the office these days😢We can at least utilize our page to bring you helpful tips while we are off! Mondays Tip-Always change your toothbrush after you have been sick 🤒 🦠
Ahhhh we miss our staff so much. Sarra brought smiles to our face as we socially distanced love to sweet little Em. When will this end, we miss our peeps !!!
When we can only see emergencies, Dr. Sutherland finally gets to his projects!!!
Making lemonade out of lemons!
Well the CDA and state of California has asked us to only treat emergencies.
While we do not believe in fear, we do believe in safety and in taking care of our staff and patients.
Please pray this will end!
cda.org CDA is closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and has gathered the latest information and tips in one place
