Walking along the dental care aisle in your local pharmacy can be overwhelming. The wide variety of dental products can have your head spinning. From the assortment of mouthwashes and whitening systems to oral irrigators, there is plenty to choose from. By consulting with The TeleDentist first, we can give you recommendations as to which products suit your needs best.
Teeth whitening includes options ranging from toothpaste that contains whitening ingredients to professional teeth whitening sessions at the dentist. Some products remove extrinsic stains from your teeth, while others bleach the stains, so they appear lighter in color. It can also be an excellent way of boosting your previous whitening treatments, therefore maintaining those results.
The act of grinding your teeth occurs more often than you think. Whether out of frustration or involuntarily done when sleeping, our jaws clench and bite down. When done too often, it can be a problem and can cause damage to your teeth. At The TeleDentists, we recommend the best professional treatment for teeth grinding. The most common treatment is by using a mouthguard. We recommend you get a custom-fit mouthguard that is of higher quality, soft and comfortable to wear at night or while sleeping.
To determine the cause of dry mouth, we would have to review your medical history and all medications you are taking before examining your mouth. In some cases, you would need scans of your salivary glands to determine how much saliva you produce to identify the cause of your dry mouth. The treatment depends on the cause of your dry mouth. If your medication is the cause, we may adjust your dosage or recommend you another medication that does not cause dry mouth. If your situation is more severe, we will provide medication that stimulates saliva or fit you for fluoride trays that you wear over your teeth at night.
Certain activities such as eating, drinking, and brushing can cause sharp and temporary pain when you have sensitive teeth. Sensitive teeth are usually a result of exposed tooth roots and damaged tooth enamel. If you are bothered by sensitive teeth, have a video chat with us and we will recommend some products depending on the circumstances. To avoid sensitive teeth from recurring again, make sure to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. If possible, floss daily and use fluoride-infused toothpaste. You may also want to avoid taking too much acidic food and drinks if your teeth sensitivity issue does not subside.
