Dental bonding is a term to describe a dental procedure where a tooth colored dental resin is adhered to a tooth. Bonding is typically used as a cosmetic procedure to change the shape, color, or size of a tooth. It can be used to repair chipped teeth, fill in spaces between teeth, or cover dark or stained teeth. It is a conservative, inexpensive, and painless procedure. We transformed another smile in one office visit through this bonding procedure. As can be seen in the before photo, the patient had malpositioned teeth with spacing. After the bonding procedure, the patient was beyond elated with her new smile !!

Though your saliva helps protect you against some invaders, it can't always do the job. More than 500 species of bacteria thrive in your mouth at any given time. These bacteria constantly form dental plaque which is a sticky, colorless film that can cling to your teeth and cause health problems. Failure to brush and floss regularly to keep your teeth clean, plaque can build up along your gumline, creating an environment for additional bacteria to accumulate in the space between your gums and your teeth. This gum infection is known as gingivitis. Bacteria from your mouth normally don't enter your bloodstream. However, invasive dental treatments — sometimes even just routine brushing and flossing if you have gum disease — can provide a port of entry for these microbes. Though plaque accumulation naturally occurs, it is imperative to keep these amounts at a minimal level to ensure proper oral health !

 

                                                            


In your mouth there is a vast amount of bacteria that constitute your oral microbiome. Your oral microbiome and tooth decay are closely connected. Your oral flora facilitates the health of your mouth. Oral probiotics consist of healthy bacteria that enables a healthy microbial balance in your mouth which can aid in the prevention of tooth decay. Although probiotics are mostly known for their impact on digestive health, new research is starting to show that probiotics play an active role in maintaining optimal oral health. There are many benefits of oral probiotics. One benefit includes the prevention of plaque. There are many different types of bacteria in our mouths. Some these bacteria facilitate the proliferation of plaque. A bacterial strain present in the oral probiotic actively works to combat the bacteria that facilitates plaque growth, ultimately, aiding in the prevention of plaque growth. Another benefit includes decreasing inflammation caused by gum disease. Active research shows that the consumption of an oral probiotic bacteria helps manage inflammation caused by gum disease. A specific strain of bacteria known as Lactobacillus brevis has been found to decrease inflammation associated with gum disease. All in all, there are a number of benefits associated with the daily consumption of a daily probiotic. Here in our office, we recommend, “Hyperbiotics PRO-DENTAL” oral probiotic. This probiotic comes in the form of a chewable minty tablet.
