The Guide To Oral Caner Screening And Sealants
Pearly white teeth are one of the most shining jewels one can wear. But how can one achieve this amazing feat? Well, the answer is just as pure and straightforward as cleaning your teeth. Our teeth are usually prone to destruction every time we chew and eat something, but cleaning and maintaining it is not just a walk in the park. It takes a lot of things, and what do they mean with a lot? It means we don't need just an ordinary brushing, but we also need flossing once in a while.
Seal that tooth decay awayp>Let's talk about oral caner sealing. Haven't you heard the words, "seal out that tooth decay"? Yes, it's a legit thing, and it's been here for a while. Sealing or oral caner screening is a process of placing a thin protective coating on the teeth or more specifically at the molars. Molars are the large, flat teeth we see at the back of the mouth. They have a broad biting surface used for grinding and chewing foods, thus making them the primary prone area for bacterial activities causing cavities and a common place for leftover food to get stuck.
What are sealants made of and how does it work?
They are made mainly of plastics and other dental materials that adhere to the surface area of teeth. They fill the overtop of the teeth which are commonly prone to cavities and destruction. They act as protective gradient or sealant, as the name suggests, of the teeth, and they also smooth the irregular rough edges of the teeth covering most of the depressions and grooves of the molars to prevent cavities or erosion to take place.
Bad breath and bleeding gums
Yes, you are now one step ahead in achieving that lovely smile, but how about the bad breath and bleeding gums? It's a big bummer to your now ever evolving self-confidence if you have them.
Most of the problems encountered by the dentist on a daily basis are the issues concerning bleeding gums, and the eluded bad breath. But how does one have bad breath? Halitosis, a medical term for what we commonly call bad breath, has many causes. One of them is from the natural odors from the food we eat (such as garlic or onions). Halitosis or bad breath is mainly due to the odor-causing bacteria that proliferates in our mouth. You may wonder how do the bacteria get in. They usually come from the foods that get stuck in between teeth, and they propagate and populate in it. When it comes to bleeding gums, most of the common reasons are improper brushing and flossing or inadequate plaque removal. When food gets stuck in between the teeth, and you are not really into oral hygiene, forgetting to brush and floss once in a while, the bacteria mentioned a while ago may infect the surrounding gums, causing inflammation and bleeding. But do not neglect bleeding gums because it may be a sign of a bigger problem, like bleeding diseases. It is still best to consult your nearest dentist about it.
Overall, good oral hygiene along with proper brushing and flossing are the best answers to getting that lovely big smile. Get out there and show your clean, white smile.
