What is an Overdenture and How Does it Help?
Posted on 6/20/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
An overdenture is a dental implant to be placed inside either your upper jawbone or lower jawbone. Over time, the dental implant will act as a replacement for your teeth. Over time, the overdenture will work as natural as your original teeth, and you will not even realize that it is there after a while. Here are the benefits of an overdenture and how it can help you. Helps Promote Better Digestion The problem with poorly fitting dentures is that they are held in by an adhesive. Because of this, you won't be able to chew food properly, and therefore it won't digest properly. However, with an overdenture, you will be able to chew your food better and digest it better. Reduces Bone LossUsing an overdenture will minimise the loss of your bone in your teeth. Whether or not you have an overdenture that is a dental implant or placed in with your natural teeth, while chewing your food, it will continue to stimulate the growth of your bone in your teeth. This will, in turn, reduce bone loss keeping your teeth as active as possible for as long as possible. Overdentures Help Keep Your Facial Features NormalWhen it comes to having a dental implant that does not absorb the normal way, this can mess up your facial feature and structure. However, with an overdenture, since it is placed in with your natural teeth, it will retain your facial features and structure, keeping the look of your face normal. More Comfortable Since an overdenture is worn on your upper jawbone or lower jawbone, it is more comfortable to wear. You won't have to walk around worrying about your dentures falling out with an overdenture. These are some great benefits for overdentures. As always, do not forget to contact us with any other questions you have about overdentures or anything else. We will help you any way we can....

What Can Happen if a Large Filling is Not Covered By a Dental Crown?
Posted on 6/10/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
If a large filling is not covered by a dental crown then you may find that the large filling is not going to sit inside the tooth very well. A large filling can not only make the tooth feel better since the large hole that was once there is now filled, but when the filling is not protected when it takes up a decent amount of the tooth space then it is going to fall out. Problems with Large FillingsSometimes when fillings are too large in the tooth this can cause a problem. Some dentists will not fill decaying teeth that need a filling this large for many reasons. Some of them will request that the person has a root canal done on the tooth to ensure that the problem is handled, but it is handled through a different means since the filling might not take to the tooth and it can cause further problems. Large fillings that are not covered with a crown or fitted perfectly into the tooth can fill out. This will leave the tooth open for decay to set in. Not only that, but since there is nothing filling the inside of the tooth, the tooth can break down and fall apart. This is not a good thing since it brings along a lot of pain inside the tooth and jaw area. Large fillings are sometimes required, they can work, but they have to be done correctly in order to save the tooth and to make sure that the filling doesn't fall right out. If you need a rather large filling, have a filling that fell out or have questions regarding large fillings, call our dental office today. We can provide you with more information regarding the filling you are in need of and what we can do to help. You shouldn't be in dental pain if you do not have to be....

"How Dentures Can Lead to Halitosis"
Posted on 5/25/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
Dentures aren't any different from your natural teeth in that plaque and tartar can build up on them. This often leads to bad breath (a.k.a. halitosis) which occurs when food particles become lodged under your dentures. The combination of plaque and food particles create this unpleasant smell. Bacteria can also do the same thing if it builds up from you not brushing your dentures every day. How to Avoid Halitosis When Wearing DenturesFortunately, there are several things that you can do to avoid halitosis when you're wearing dentures. Obviously, one of the most important things you can do is clean them every day. This will remove any food and plaque from your dentures. To clean your dentures, you'll need to soak, brush, and rinse them thoroughly. You need to use a special denture cleansing tablet like Polydent to keep away odor-causing bacteria. After soaking them you'll need to use a soft-bristle brush to remove any additional debris, then rinse them thoroughly under running water. Another product you should use is denture adhesive. This helps prevent food from getting trapped under your dentures because it seals them to your gums. You'll also enjoy your food more knowing your dentures are securely in place. Additionally, it's important to always take your dentures out before going to sleep at night. This stops bacteria from forming and growing overnight while also giving your mouth and gums the rest they need. Even though you're wearing dentures, you still need to see us on a regular basis. We need to make sure that your dentures are still in good condition and that your mouth is healthy overall. Once you make an appointment, you can also ask us any questions you have about your dentures, including how to properly care for and clean them. So, make sure you make an appointment with us today....
