Is Mouthwash Necessary?

Jun 29, 2016

Posted on Behalf of Dr. Raymond Jone

Take a walk up and down the dental health care aisle at any drug store and you will find yourself overwhelmed with multiple types and flavors of toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash. While your dentist has stressed to you over and over the importance of brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing every single day, your dentist has most likely never gone on about the importance of using mouthwash. However, pick up any of the bottles and read their labels, and you will see claims of cavity prevention, fresh breath, and even gum disease reversal. This leaves many people asking, "Is mouthwash a necessary part of my oral health routine?"

Tooth Restorations

Tooth restoration procedures are done in order to give your smile a second chance. Permanent teeth are meant to last you a lifetime, but there are times in life where that simply does not happen. When a permanent tooth has been damaged by injury, decay, infection, or needs to be extracted from the mouth, it is important that restorative measures are then taken to restore the mouth to complete health. The teeth are necessary structures inside the mouth for proper speaking, chewing, and smiling at others. Dr. Raymond Jone is an experienced and caring dentist who is passionate about being the best dentist that he can be. His experience and expertise with tooth restorations allow him the ability to help people recreate a beautiful, healthy, and complete smile.

What is a Dead Tooth?

To understand what a dead tooth is, you must first understand how a tooth "lives" within the mouth. Each tooth is firmly attached within the jaw bone and is sustained by nerves and blood vessels that carry the necessary blood flow and nutrients needed to help it survive. Just like every other area of the body, the teeth require a constant access to the blood flow in order to survive. A dead tooth is one that no longer has access to a constant blood supply.

Dental cavities are one of the most rampant health problems in the world, yet they are also one of the most preventable issues. Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the tooth enamel that are caused by a combination of factors. As with many health issues, cavity prevention starts with individual habits and choices outside of the dentist's office. Understanding how cavities are formed can give you the information that you need to prevent their destruction.

Prevention is the key to life-long health, and this includes your dental health. Parents can start preventing oral health issues from the time their babies are very young. The American Dental Association recommends that all parents bring their children in to the dentist's office for their first visit by the time their children reach their first birthday. This is often surprising to parents because most of their 12-month olds do not have many teeth! However, bringing children in to the dentist from the very start allows them to prevent issues and promote optimal oral health.

There are many different reasons people choose to whiten their teeth. Whether you are ready for a change in confidence, you are going to be presenting a huge business deal in front of your company's leaders, or your big wedding day is just around the corner - teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic dental procedure here in the United States. Stained, discolored, or dull teeth can dampen a person's appearance by putting an unwanted emphasis on teeth that are less than stellar. If you have ever cringed when looking through photographs of yourself because your teeth seem to be much less radiant than everyone else's, then it is time to ask about teeth whitening.

Do you cringe at the thought of eating a bowl of ice cream or biting into a piece of fruit that has just come out of the refrigerator? Do you let your coffee cool down at least 10 degrees before you take a sip? Have you noticed that you only tend to chew on one side of your mouth? If your answer was yes to any of these questions, it is time to talk to your dentist about tooth sensitivity. Ignoring your sensitive teeth will not make them go away - in fact, it will probably only make their sensitivity worse.

People have all kinds of excuses for not flossing - they do not like to put their fingers inside their mouth, they do not like the feeling of the floss around their fingers, they do not like the "white stuff" that comes off on their fingers, their gums bleed, or it hurts. While these excuses may be popular, they do not negate the fact that every person should be flossing because flossing is the most important thing you can do for your oral health.
