Teeth Grinding or Bruxism Can Be Treated

There are a number of things you can do if you feel either you or somebody you love is suffering from nighttime teeth grinding or bruxism. For starters, try to alleviate whatever stress in your life you can. Kick the tobacco habit and heavy drinking, and try not to drink too much coffee.

Severe cases may need to be fitted with a mouth guard or have their teeth reshaped to eliminate unusual alignment. If you feel you may be suffering from bruxism, call Mary E. Lucido, D.M.D. at (855) 394-0022 to schedule a consultation.

Dry Mouth: More Than Just a Nuisance

It should be easy to seal an envelope, but those who suffer from a condition called xerostomia, or dry mouth, usually have to reach for some tape instead. Dry mouth can not only hinder your enjoyment of food, but affect the health of your teeth. Heavy plaque and food accumulations tend to occur with this condition, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Saliva is the body's self-cleansing mechanism. It helps remove food, debris, and plaque from the tooth surfaces, protecting you from oral diseases. It cleans your teeth and neutralizes acids, which prevents tooth decay. People who have dry mouth are very susceptible to cavities, especially on the roots of their teeth, so please call us today at (855) 394-0022 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mary Lucido.

Finding the Perfect Toothpaste

From whitening to ultra-sensitive, there are a multitude of toothpastes available on today's market. How do you choose? Start by selecting one with fluoride, which will prevent cavities. Other things to consider are flavor, whitening potential, tartar control and price. Often the biggest difference between two brands is packaging, so don't get hung up on the finer details. Consider selecting fun flavored toothpaste for children, as it will encourage them to brush regularly.

Very young children require a fluoride-free variety for safety. Call us at (855) 394-0022 and Dr. Mary Lucido will be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for your family.
