Over the Counter Teeth Whitening vs. In Office Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter (OTC) whitening products. The best-known OTC whiteners are strips—thin, cellophane-like tape that adheres directly to the teeth—and gel-filled trays, both falling in the $15-to-$50 range. The bleaching agent in these products can cause irritation or blotching if it comes in contact with the lips or gums, says Ross. To minimize that problem, manufacturers keep peroxide concentrations low, which means you should expect relatively slow, modest results. "The OTC products are ideal for someone going to prom in a week or needing a little touch up here and there,"

In-office whitening. You'll fetch the most dramatic improvement in the shortest time with bleaching procedures done at a dentist's office. But convenience and results come at a price—often between $500 and $1,000 and even more in major metropolitan areas. Some products, including Zoom and BriteSmile, make use of a high-intensity blue light or laser that purportedly activates the highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution and speeds up the process. This process is more controlled and perfect for those who have composite fillings and veneers that will not change color so that you don't over whiten your teeth. "Perfect for the person with no patience and wants them white right now."

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene is the most vital part of dental care. Dental hygiene makes sure that you can preserve your charming smile in most effortless way. Nevertheless, despite this, not many people in reality comprehend the implication and the conception of dental hygiene. While some people misunderstand dental hygiene to be an undemanding topic of brushing teeth, while others expend much time and redundant efforts in supporting dental care products that hardly ever work the right way. Consequently, before you take on this most significant facet of dental care, try and understand the right meaning of dental hygiene.

Importance of Dental HygieneGood dental hygiene is essential on numerous levels. Primarily, it is essential to the health of your mouth, which can assist you in evading excruciating infections. Too many cavities can be hazardous, and those cavities that transform into boil can lead to even worse troubles such as root canals or teeth extraction. Secondly, good dental hygiene is essential cosmetically too. If you have a pleasant, healthy smile, people will perceive you as confident. Furthermore, good dental hygiene leads to enhanced breath and whiter teeth, making you feel healthier while interacting with people.
Maintaining a good dental hygiene is of utmost importance.

Fun Facts

Americans spend $100 billion per year on hair care products – and only $2 billion a year on dental care products. What good is great hair without a great smile?

Did you know that Americans cite bad breath as the least attractive trait a co-worker can have? Be more popular around the water cooler and brush after lunch.

Cap the paste but not the brush. Covering the brush can trap moisture and encourage bacteria growth. Yeah, we know. Gross, huh?

The average women smiles about 62 times a day, while the average man smiles only 8 times. Women are also more likely to brush their teeth and visit the dentist regularly. Think there might be a connection here?

Bottled water doesn’t contain the tooth-decay fighting fluoride, which is added to most municipal water supplies. Ditch the bottle and drink from the tap.

Saliva helps you eat by breaking apart food particles and cleaning your mouth afterwards. The average person produces 10,000 gallons of saliva over their lifetime.

If flossing properly, the average person should use 122 yards of floss per year. Twenty-eight percent of people claim to floss daily, but annual sales data shows only an average of 18 yards of floss are sold per person. We think someone’s fibbing.

SPT Supportive Periodontal Therapy

     Phase 1 treatment is complete after the patient undergoes scaling and root planning, followed by a successful postoperative report from the 6-week re-evaluuation appointment.  This 6-week re-evaluation appointment is the first of the SPT appointments. During the early stage of periodontal disease and at the end of phase 1, the periodontium has the best chance to reverwse the diseased state and, in many cases, halt the progression of further oral systemic diseases.
     After phase 1 therapy is complete, a patient is now and forever considered a periodontal patient. This means that regular SPT is a must to prevent active disease. A regular prophy just won't do.

Periodontal Disease

     Periodontal disease is an inflammatory disease that affects the soft and hard tissues that support the teeth. The early stages of this disease is gingivitis. Major risk factors for this disease include an inherited or a genetic predisposition, smoking, lack of routine home care, age, diet, certain systemic diseases, and various medications.
     When periodontal disease is present, the potential for bone loss has already begun. Depending on the patients risk factors, bone loss can occur quickly and become aggressive very easily. In patients with few risk factors, peridontal disease can be reversed with early nonsurgical intervention. This is why it is very important to see your Dentist and Hygenist every six months for regular check ups.
