Are You Watching For Cavities?

prevent cavities Gibsonton

Did you know a cavity may be reversed? These small holes in our teeth caused by acidic tooth erosion can be prevented from getting worse and require filling. Currently, around 90% of adults have cavities and almost 30% have untreated cavities. However, by taking a few required precautions advised by Your Time Dental, we can stave off tooth decay.

What causes a cavity?

Every time we eat or drink, plaque bacteria break down sugar which leads to the release of certain acids in our mouths. This acidic solution will slowly wear away the enamel on our teeth and eventually lead to a cavity. The more sugar we consume the more likely we are to get cavities since there is more of this solution in our mouths.

Can I prevent cavities from getting worse?

Yes! It’s possible to prohibit cavities from getting worse. We can all lower the number of cavities that form if we’re aware of the early signs of formation. If you ever observe small white dots on your teeth, it’s time to up the amount of time you spend brushing and flossing. You can reverse the cavity at this stage since the fluoride will re-mineralize the surface of your enamel. If you neglect your oral care, however, tooth decay will persist and result in a tiny hole. The cavity is no longer reversible and you may need a filling soon. If you continue to ignore the cavities at this stage, the hole might progress through the enamel and reach the softer layer of yellow dentin beneath and require a root canal.

4 Ways to Prevent Cavities From Forming

Avoid Refined Sugar

This one is probably obvious, but avoiding sugar should be your number one purpose in preventing cavities. Sugar breaks down our enamel and only weakens our teeth more and more when the enamel has completely worn away. Reducing the amount of sugar we take in will also provide a healthier lifestyle and make us feel better overall. We may give in to our favorite sugary drink at times, but our teeth will thank us later if we minimize these temptations.

Xylitol mints

Xylitol is a type of alcohol that comes in the form of mints or gum. This unique breath freshener not only tastes good but also cleans the inside of your mouth. By using just one mint after eating and drinking, studies show you can reduce your chance of cavities by 53%. However, you don’t have to stock up on gum and mints to prohibit cavities, and usually, brushing is the most effective measure.

Brushing

Remember that routinely brushing and flossing not only keeps your breath fresh but also prohibits cavities from forming and worsening. The fluoride will re-mineralize your teeth and also harden the enamel. This helps the enamel stay strong and makes it harder for cavities to form. If you ever see a cavity forming, focus on brushing this tooth with extra focus to clean away the bacteria. Cavities will hold bacteria longer since they let food sink deeper into the tooth.

Salt Water Rinses

Occasionally, rinsing your mouth with salt water can help slow the expansion of a cavity. Saltwater has antiseptic properties that kill bacteria on our teeth leaving them cleaner and better safeguarded. Try adding this to your oral health routine after brushing and flossing.

Going Forward

Always keep an eye out for cavities forming and stay disciplined in scheduling your semi-annual dentist appointments. Anytime you observe tooth decay appearing, use some of the techniques mentioned, but seek help if you experience any pain. This could be a sign the cavity has worked its way beyond the layer of dentin and reached the pulp where our nerves reside. If this transpires, your dentist will need to perform a root canal or possibly extract the tooth entirely. Never let a cavity advance to this stage and always maintain a healthy mouth. Keep on brushing and flossing routinely, but if you notice small white spots forming on your teeth, stay on alert to slow the onset of a cavity.

Missing Teeth? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile

Gibsonton cosmetic dentistry

If you have missing spaces in your smile due to decay, injury, or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or broken, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic Dentistry by Your Time Dental can fix all of those problems.

Dr. Kernagis at Your Time Dental Urgent Care has the ability handle the toughest cosmetic dental problems. Since 2001, Dr. Kernagis has restored and improved smiles with advanced cosmetic dentistry.

Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to retain your natural teeth. If this is not feasible, and you have already lost teeth, we offer several ways for you to maintain (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.

Dental Veneers
If you still have your teeth but are not satisfied with them, these might be the best answer. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively economical approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They upgrade unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

Dental Implant
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that includes an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.

Dentures
Most Gibsonton residents have heard of dentures: plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are individually constructed and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.

There is no need to miss out on an attractive smile. Schedule your initial consultation at 813-519-0128 to visit us at 13145 Kings Lake Drive Ste 105B in Gibsonton, Florida. We are perfectly situated for our neighbors throughout the Gibsonton area.

Tools For Tooth Transformations

porcelain veneers price Tampa

Too-small teeth. Misshapen teeth. Cracked teeth. Chipped teeth. Spacing irregularities. These problems are all too common. But you don’t have to live with them! With the advances in cosmetic dentistry at Your Time Dental, there are fixes for these vexing tooth problems!

1. Veneers. (Also called dental laminates or porcelain veneers). These fragile shells are custom-made so the size, shape, and color perfectly match your surrounding teeth. The veneers are securely cemented to the front of the teeth to dramatically enhance your smile.

2. Bonding. This procedure uses a strong tooth-colored resin to close spaces, repair chips, and cracks, or change the shape. The resin is molded into place and then a light is applied to harden the material for secure adherence to the tooth.

3. Crowns. Most people are familiar with this durable multi-purpose restoration. Natural-looking dental crowns are fabricated in the shape and color of the tooth and cemented into place to fully cover the part of the tooth visible above the gumline.

4. Braces. Patients of all ages are transforming their smiles with advanced orthodontia. Before you dismiss this option as too time-consuming or costly, learn about the new braces now available. Braces are more convenient and discrete than ever before.

Countless Tampa dental patients have achieved dazzling smiles with a smile transformation from Your Time Dental Urgent Care!

My name is Dr. Richard Kernagis of Your Time Dental Urgent Care in Gibsonton. I am passionate about to helping my patients have optimum oral health and beautiful smiles. If you have any questions about veneers, bonding, recontouring, or crowns, I invite you to call us at 813-519-0128 to make an appointment today. We make patients feel comfortable!

No Dental Insurance? Prioritize Spending For Dental Care

dental financing Gibsonton

Millions of Americans don’t have dental insurance, and many Florida employer plans have limited benefits. Some men and women who fail to get adequate dental care say “It’s too costly.”

This excuse may be valid if you live below the poverty level. But if you have an average income, you can probably shift your priorities to find money in your budget to invest in a healthy smile.

You have probably heard of the “Latte Factor” which refers to the surprising amount of dollars that adds up if you buy a significant caffeinated beverage every morning. Even if you don’t drink coffee, you probably have a personal habit that costs a few dollars daily but adds up to hundreds of dollars a year. Soda pop, beer, an eight-dollar deli sandwich, and a game of golf. How about personal grooming—manis, pedis, facials, and professional hair coloring? What about the dollars you spend for convenience—pizza delivery, ATM fees, heat-and-eat meals? How much do you spend on premium cable, video game rentals, full-price movies, and season tickets to sporting events?

If you have foregone dental exams, cleanings, and treatments because you think it’s too costly, I hope this Your Time Dental Urgent Care blog post has opened your eyes to purchases that may be far less vital than a healthy smile. Remember, if you ignore dental problems, eventually they will require more extensive treatments. Filling a cavity is relatively inexpensive, a root canal costs more, and a dental implant is a major investment. What is a tooth worth? Every single one is priceless. And don’t forget that dental dilemmas impact the health of your entire body.

Your Time Dental Urgent Care in Gibsonton provides competitively priced first-rate dental care including veneers, crowns, bonding, orthodontia, and teeth whitening. We also provide same-day emergency care. Ask us about dental financing options.

Into The Thick Of It, The Skinny On Toothpaste

Lithia cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Welcome to our blog! Today’s post answers some common questions about toothpaste.

Why does toothpaste seem gritty?

The abrasive quality of toothpaste is to aid in removing dental plaque and food from the surface of the teeth. Vigorous brushing becomes unnecessary for dental patients when the abrasives in the toothpaste can snag the mouth’s lingering bits of food and polish the enamel at the same time.

What’s with the strong minty flavors?

Minty flavorants are used to encourage continued use of the paste and to freshen breath. However, dynamic toothpaste alone is not designed to cure halitosis (bad breath) for men and women affected. While unflavored toothpastes exist, the world has also seen such flavors as peanut butter, iced tea, and ginger. To treat halitosis it is best to restrict periodontal disease and to also brush bacteria from far back on the tongue. Removing the source is critical and more effective than covering it up with minty flavorings.

What is Fluoride’s place in a toothpaste?

Fluoride occurs in small amounts in plants, animals, and some natural water sources. It is championed by health-conscious people for preventing decay and controlling gingivitis. Fluoride-containing compounds are added to many toothpastes to add another important dimension to the oral hygiene regimen for preventing decay.

How are toothpaste and flossing related?

Flossing regularly in conjunction with toothbrushing assists with prevent bacterial growth, tooth decay, and plaque build-up by simply removing chunks of food or substances that could break down the tooth.

Finally, what about the relationship between toothpaste and mouthwash?

The use of mouthwash cannot replace regular brushing and flossing. Mouthwash (or fluoride rinse) simply adds yet another effective layer of defense against bacterial growth in the mouth.

If you need information about dental implants, restorations, veneers or crowns, call us today. If urgent dental care sounds like something you would like to consider call us today. If emergency same day dental care and emergency dental care have crossed your mind, we’re here at 813-519-0128. We are proud to serve Gibsonton, Florida with comprehensive dental services.

Important Information About Toothpaste

Lithia cosmetic dental and tooth implantsToothpaste is a critical aspect of maintaining a healthy mouth and teeth. It is essential to select the right type of toothpaste that meets your individual needs. The market is flooded with various brands, each claiming to be the best. At Your Time Dental Group, we understand that it can be overwhelming to pick the right toothpaste. That’s why we’ve put together this blog post to help provide you with the necessary information to make an informed decision

1. What type of toothpaste should you use?

There are different types of toothpaste available in the market, each targeting different oral problems. However, it’s essential to choose one that meets your individual needs. When selecting toothpaste, look for one that has the American Dental Association (ADA) logo, which indicates it’s safe and effective to use. If you have sensitive teeth, look for toothpaste with potassium nitrate to help alleviate sensitivity. Antimicrobial toothpaste can help reduce bacteria in the mouth, preventing gingivitis and bad breath. However, this should only be used under the recommendation of a dental professional.

2. What are the ingredients in toothpaste?

The ingredients in toothpaste vary depending on the brand and type. However, all toothpaste contains an abrasive for cleaning teeth, flavoring agents, humectants to keep toothpaste from drying out, and binding agents to help keep it in place during brushing. Some toothpaste contains fluoride, which helps to strengthen teeth and give them extra protection against cavities. It’s essential to check the ingredients list to ensure the toothpaste meets your individual needs.

3. How much toothpaste should you use?

You only need a small amount, pea-sized or less, of toothpaste on your toothbrush for effective cleaning. Using too much toothpaste can lead to excessive foaming, causing you to swallow more fluoride than necessary, leading to fluorosis. Fluorosis can lead to dental problems such as white spots on teeth, and in severe cases, discolored or mottled enamel.

4. How often should you replace your toothbrush?

It’s essential to replace your toothbrush every three to four months or when bristles start to fray. A frayed toothbrush makes it challenging to effectively clean teeth and can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. If you have been sick, replace your toothbrush to prevent reinfection, and make sure to disinfect it after use.

5. What are the benefits of using toothpaste daily?

Using toothpaste daily helps remove plaque, a bacteria-laden film that builds up on teeth and causes cavities, bad breath, and gum disease. Toothpaste contains varying amounts of fluoride, which helps to prevent cavities and strengthen teeth. Toothpaste also contains antimicrobial agents, which help to kill bacteria in the mouth, preventing gum disease and bad breath.

Toothpaste is essential for maintaining oral health, preventing bad breath and maintaining a bright smile. At Your Time Dental Group, we understand the importance of choosing the right toothpaste that meets your individual needs. When selecting toothpaste, look for one that has the ADA logo, has ingredients to meet your individual needs, and contains the appropriate amount of fluoride. Don’t forget to replace your toothbrush every three to four months and use the correct amount of toothpaste to prevent swallowing excess fluoride. With proper maintenance and good oral hygiene practices, you can ensure your teeth stay healthy and bright for years to come. Visit Your Time Dental Group to learn more about the best oral health practices and maintenance.

How Your Lifestyle Changes Your Tooth Color

teeth whitening GibsontonAs a dental professional, I am always reminded of how important it is to take care of our teeth and gums. Not only do they help us to speak and eat, but they can also make a big impact on our overall health. One of the most common cosmetic concerns that patients come to me for is tooth discoloration. Whether it’s from aging, genetics, or lifestyle habits, everyone wants to have a bright, white smile. In this blog post, I’ll be discussing how your lifestyle choices can affect the color of your teeth, and what you can do to maintain a healthy, white smile.

1. Food and Drink: The types of food and drink that you consume can have a major effect on the color of your teeth. Certain foods such as berries, beets, and tomato sauce contain pigments that can stain your teeth. Drinks such as tea, coffee, and red wine can also cause discoloration. If you enjoy consuming these types of foods and drinks, try to rinse your mouth with water after eating or drinking. This can help to prevent the pigments from settling on your teeth. Additionally, consider using a straw when drinking certain beverages to minimize contact with your teeth.

2. Tobacco Use: Whether you smoke cigarettes or use tobacco products, this habit can lead to yellowing of the teeth. Tobacco contains tar and nicotine, which can cause discoloration over time. Not only that, but tobacco use can also contribute to gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. Quitting tobacco use is the best way to avoid these negative effects on your teeth and gums. If you’re struggling to quit, talk to your dentist for advice on resources and strategies that can help.

3. Oral Hygiene: Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for keeping your teeth healthy and white. Brushing and flossing daily can remove surface stains and plaque buildup, which can lead to discoloration. Additionally, regular professional cleanings can help to remove more stubborn stains and tartar buildup. If you’re looking to brighten your smile even further, consider using a whitening toothpaste or getting an in-office whitening treatment from your dentist.

4. Medications: Certain medications can cause tooth discoloration as a side effect. This includes antibiotics such as tetracycline and doxycycline, as well as antipsychotic and antihistamine medications. If you’re taking a medication that you think may be causing discoloration, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about alternatives. Additionally, be sure to let your dentist know about any medications that you’re taking during your appointment.

5. Aging: As we age, our teeth naturally become more yellow or gray in color. This is because the outer layer of enamel on our teeth wears away over time, exposing the darker layer of dentin underneath. While this process cannot be stopped, there are steps that you can take to slow down the discoloration process. Maintaining good oral hygiene and avoiding tobacco use are two key ways to keep your teeth looking their best as you age.

In conclusion, there are many lifestyle factors that can affect the color of your teeth. By taking steps to maintain good oral hygiene, avoiding tobacco use, and being mindful of the foods and drinks that you consume, you can help to keep your teeth healthy and white. As a dental professional, I encourage you to speak with your dentist about any concerns that you may have regarding tooth discoloration. They can offer advice and guidance on the best strategies for maintaining a bright, healthy smile.

How Your Lifestyle Affects Your Tooth Color

teeth whitening Gibsonton

It’s a common desire for people to want white teeth. But the majority of people have discolored or just plain yellow teeth. Especially in a world of tea and coffee drinkers.

Your Genes Make a Difference

As with other physical features, there is a genetic component to your oral health. You can thank your parents if your enamel is thick and sturdy. If it is resistant to decay, you can thank them again. Even more importantly, you can thank them if they taught you to take care of your teeth.

Like complexions, natural tooth shade varies from person to person. Some of us have whiter teeth naturally. But many men and women have tarnished teeth due to their lifestyle. Dietary behaviors and dental hygiene influence tooth color as well as overall oral health.

Lifestyle Habits That Affect Tooth Color

Did you know that your enamel is like your skin? It contains pores that can get clogged and discolored. The most common practices that work against you are:

  1. Tobacco and other smokable substances
  2. Sodas and other dark-colored drinks, i.e. coffee, red wines, and teas
  3. Not practicing daily oral hygiene
  4. Not having proper dental care

If you want to enhance your teeth, the aforementioned behaviors will consistently work against you.

We advise kicking these habits to the curb if you want the whitest teeth possible. (There are compelling health ramifications as well.)

Acids Weaken Enamel

Another way these habits cause teeth yellowing is due to acids. A continual onslaught of acidic beverages erodes tooth enamel. This is true whether or not the beverages are dark colored.

Dentin Isn’t The Best Look For Your Smile

The tooth layer under the enamel is called dentin. Unfortunately, dentin is dark yellow. If you are weakening your enamel, you are making it easier to see the yellow dentin. Dentin is also softer and more prone to cavities—which is more harmful than a yellow smile.

Jaw Clenching and Teeth Grinding

Jaw clenching can also weaken enamel and contribute to tooth discoloration. If you clench your jaw repeatedly, you are weakening your enamel. Ditto for teeth grinding. Talk to Dr. Kernagis about treatment for these conditions.

Professional Teeth Whitening at Your Time Dental Urgent Care

Professional in-office teeth whitening is the only way to remove the stains caused by the habits listed. This is due to the intrinsic stains that have permeated the enamel.

The Formula For Whiter Teeth

What’s the formula for whiter teeth?

A healthy lifestyle + twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings + professional teeth whitening
