Fight Tooth Decay With Seaweed

Agents that can help us in the fight against tooth decay are rife, and are being added to more and more toothpastes, mouthwash and a whole slew of products all aimed at preserving your chompers. From neem to tea tree oil to sea salt, olive oil and eucalyptus and mint, the host of active ingredients seems to be endless. The newest that I have come across is still in research phase, but is the extract of a bacterium called Bacillus licheniformis that lives on seaweed. The discovery of this bacterium first occurred in Newcastle University’s Marine Biology department, but soon attracted the attention of their Dental school, who have since been working on extracting the active, tooth decay fighting ingredients of this bacterium and using it in products safe for human consumption.

How To Prevent Dental Caries

​More than 90% of adults have or will develop dental caries within their lifetime. This does not mean that dental caries or tooth decay is unpreventable or inevitable at all; the best way to prevent it is with proper nutrition.

All About Mouthwash

​Mouthwash is extremely good for the teeth and the gums. It can get to places where you cannot reach with a toothbrush or even with dental floss, the other two members of the holy trinity of at home oral care. Mouthwash is effective at removing stains, killing bacteria and freshening the breath by drenching the soft tissues and removing the bacterial colonies living on the tooth gaps, the tongue and the periodontium. But is every mouthwash created equal? And how often should mouthwash be used for maximum effectiveness? Can you overuse mouthwash? These are some of the questions we seek to answer.

The Effects of Alcohol on Dental Implants

A little bit of alcohol can be good for your oral health: alcohol disinfects the mouth and kills all bacteria it comes into contact with, red wine can boost the blood vessels in your mouth and lead to more active immune responses in the mouth, and it can reduce swelling and thin your blood as well. Excessive drinking, however, will cause problems, and a life of alcoholism will lead to tooth loss, gum disease, tooth decay and dental implant failure. If you have dental implants do not drink with any sort of regularity, as this will cause alcohol induced dental implant failure.

Titanium vs. Zirconium

Posted by | Date: January 15, 2018 | Tags:Dental implant, dental crown

Titanium vs. Zirconium

Dental implants are made of three parts: an artificial tooth root or dental implant, and a crown, which is connected to the implant by an abutment. The abutment and the dental implant are always made of a titanium alloy, as this is what the bones accept and can integrate, but the crown can be made of two different materials. The outer layer of a dental crown is always porcelain, but the inner structure can be either zirconium or titanium. Although the difference in price is readily apparent, the difference between these two materials is not. Allow us to shed some light on the mystery of zirconium vs. titanium.
