But the decision has now been declared!

What Are Mouth Sores, and Why Do They Happen?

Contributed by DentalROI

Your mouth is a complicated ecosystem of components that work together to allow you to speak, chew, swallow and a host of other important functions. And as with many other intricate organisms, complications can arise. Mouth sores are some of them. These ulcers are one of the most commonplace lesions in the mouth. 

At the office of Tranquil Dental, we are enthusiastic about treating your oral health. It’s as important to our dentists as it is to you.

Dry Mouth: More Than Just a Case of Nerves? Ask Your Dentist

Contributed by DentalROI

Dry mouth may be most commonly associated with feelings of anxiety, but it can also be a symptom of other health issues. The inadequate production of saliva — also known as xerostomia — can have a profound effect on our oral health. The dentists at the offices of Tranquil Dental check for symptoms of xerostomia as part of our comprehensive regular examination, explain the possible consequences of the problem, and work with our patients to restore this vital fluid. 

We may take our saliva for granted, but how many of us understand its importance as our mouth’s primary line of defense in guarding against tooth decay? Besides washing food and other substances away, our saliva neutralizes acids produced by bacteria, all the while doing double duty protecting our bodies against disease-spreading germs. It moistens food to enhance our ability to taste, and make it easier to swallow; and strengthens our teeth by rinsing them with protective calcium and fluoride.

Cavities Need to be Treated ASAP

Contributed by DentalROI

Most people have the privilege of being able to drink and eat whatever they want and whenever they want. It’s a luxury we take for granted until a problem—such as a cavity—comes along. Cavities are areas that are permanently damaged that turn into tiny holes. Developing a cavity, also called tooth decay, isn’t unusual, and many individuals assume that it’s no big deal. But that’s a dangerous assumption. Left untreated by a dental professional, a cavity can turn into the reason behind a toothache, an infection or the loss of a tooth.

Your Favorite Foods Bring a Smile to Your Face, but are They Good for Your Teeth?

Contributed by DentalROI

The pleasure we get from eating the foods we love can make us smile. But what about the effects those foods are having on our teeth and gums? The mouth is the gateway to the digestive system, and provides an important indication of whether we’re making the nutritional choices that are really something to smile about.

The dentists at the office of Tranquil Dental understand that your mouth, teeth and gums are much more than just for chewing and swallowing. A consultation and examination with our highly trained staff includes a comprehensive review of our patients’ diets, including what foods they eat and how often. The forms of food we take into our bodies  — whether they are solid, liquid, sticky or slow to dissolve — have an impact in terms of tooth decay. Likewise the nutritional makeup of your diet, the mix of foods you consume, even the order in which you eat them, all are important to consider. Whether you have an eating disorder, acid reflux or other medical condition can also come into play, increasing your risk of cavities.
