Useful Links and Resources for Dental Health in Mississauga
At Dentistry in Streetsville, we are dedicated to educating our patients about the importance of oral health. On this page, you’ll find some useful links to information about dentistry as well as videos on a wide range of subjects to help you achieve the perfect smile and learn more about our services.
Function of Your Smile
When considering any enhancement of your smile, it is worth remembering that your teeth are designed for function (chewing). It is therefore important to make sure that any cosmetic enhancement of your smile complements or improves your existing function.
For comfort, longevity and the protection of your new smile, it is important that your teeth touch evenly when biting together, as this allows your jaw muscles to settle into a relaxed position at rest. It is very common to find that most people possess an uneven bite, which often results from general wear over time and past dentistry, such as a filling in a tooth that has worn down, or tooth movement following orthodontic treatment (braces).
A complete smile assessment will always incorporate a thorough examination of your bite, as we not only want your smile to look fantastic, but also want it to last for many years to come.
How to Prevent Dental Decay
Cavities are caused by certain types of bacteria that live in your mouth and stick to plaque that builds up on your teeth. The bacteria feed on the food you eat, producing acid that can cause cavities. We are not born with these bacteria in our mouths, so there are ways to prevent the dental decay they cause. To reduce your chances of dental decay you should:
- Avoid sharing utensils and straws
- Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste
- Floss daily
- Eat a balanced diet
- Limit snacking on sugary or starchy foods
- Regularly visit your dentist for professional teeth cleanings
