Do Gums Shrink After Getting Dentures?
Posted on 2/25/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
The mouth naturally changes with age and time. When this happens, it is important to speak with someone that is able to provide the right size dentures and perfectly fit them to the gums in the mouth. When the dentures are perfectly fit in the mouth, they're more comfortable for the person to wear and they will not fall out of the mouth when the person eats or smiles. Many wonder if the gums in the mouth shrink after getting dentures and is this why new dentures are required over time because of the old ones not being able to fit anymore. Gums Changing with Time Gums do change with time and oftentimes they do shrink. Due to this, many users of dentures have to bring them in to have them replaced with new ones that fit properly. Each time the person experiences changes in their mouth, a new pair of dentures might be required. Since the gums do not have the teeth that are needed, the gums will heal and shrink. They do not have the teeth roots that would normally fill up the space in those areas, causing them to shrink down since they do not have to house anything in them anymore. This is why it is important to let the gums heal fully before being fitted with dentures after having the teeth removed from your mouth. It is important to speak with a dental professional that can provide more information regarding your gum health and dentures. Speak with us here if you need to have dentures put in your mouth or need to be fitted for new ones due to the changes that have happened inside the mouth. We can provide a perfectly fitting pair to give you more confidence when smiling....

Can Your Hometown Affect Your Oral Health?
Posted on 2/15/2018 by Edelweiss Dental Implant Center
Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that helps prevent cavity formation and strengthens the teeth by re-mineralizing the tooth enamel. It helps the tooth become more resistant against the primary causes of tooth decay, acids and bacteria. Small doses of fluoride are helpful in so many ways and young children benefit a lot from fluoride absorption. Fluoride absorbed through the bloodstream becomes part of developing strong permanent teeth. While fluoride taken through the mouth becomes part of the saliva and deposited back into the tooth's enamel. How Does Fluoride Strengthen Your Teeth? So many doubts have been thrown at the effectivity of fluoridated water and how it affects our health. This does not undermine the fact that fluoridated water lessens the likelihood of developing dental problems, especially among young children whose teeth are still in the developmental stage. The benefits of fluoride in our drinking water lessen the risks of dental decay and reduce the formation of cavities. Fluoridated water supply from our hometown tap has been contributory to the steady decline of tooth ailments since the process was discovered. It balances the loss of the elements by re-mineralizing the tooth with a steady supply of the mineral. Akin to fluoride toothpastes, fluoridated tap water is a cost-effective way to prevent tooth decay and help young children develop strong healthy teeth. Fluoride Does More Good Than Harm People have been thrown to either side of the debate; however, it is a fact that fluoride is a safe and effective element when used appropriately. Water-fluoridation in our tap system is a clinically supervised process and is scientifically ensured to make it safe for the family. Supplements, on the other hand, need to be taken in small quantities to eliminate the risk of overdose. Healthy young children are advised to use fluoride toothpaste to prevent premature tooth decay. If you want to find out more about fluoride and its health benefits, we're happy to answer all of your questions....
