Are My Teeth Too Sensitive to Whiten?

“I always hear that whitening isn’t great for sensitive teeth.  If my teeth are sensitive, is there any way to whiten them?” Many of our patients downtown Vancouver are concerned about their teeth being too sensitive to whiten. Fortunately, sensitive teeth can be whitened – just with a little bit of extra effort to ensure your sensitivity isn’t triggered.   What is the best way to whiten sensitive teeth? The best way to whiten sensitive teeth is with a home whitening program, but not the kind you pick up at the drug store.  The kind of home whitening program we’re referring to here involves custom trays for your mouth, which we’ll make for you. Why are home whitening kits the best option for whitening sensitive teeth? The benefit of this custom program is that the amount of time the bleaching chemical is on your teeth can be controlled.   How long should I keep the whitening trays on for? You can begin with very short intervals of just five or ten minutes. These short times will not cause sensitivity, but will still be effective.  The whitening time can remain short – in those little five or ten minute bursts – or it can be increased, if it’s not causing sensitivity. How long will it take to see results from home whitening kits? This isn’t one of those programs that takes months to see effects – in fact, after just two weeks, your teeth will be whiter, and your sensitivity will be no problem at all. What is included in Bay Dental’s Take-Home Whitening Kits? Take-home teeth whitening kits include: a custom-whitening...

How to Floss Your Teeth Properly

Plaque is the sticky bacterial matrix that sticks to teeth, causing problems in our mouths.  We should all do everything we can to disorganize or remove this bacteria.  Luckily, there are ways to get rid of this sticky stuff. One tried and true method that everyone is familiar with is dental floss. What type of floss should I use? There are many types of dental floss to choose from, varying in everything from flavour to coarseness.  At the end of the day, the type you should use is the type you will use more frequently.  In other words, pick the type you personally like. Standard dental floss is braided.  This means that when it comes in contact with the side of a tooth, it spreads out of clean more surface area.     How do I floss? Step 1: Wrap the floss around your middle fingers. To become a proficient flosser, you need to use and be able to control a short piece between your fingers.  Too long of a piece will be too hard to control.   Step 2: Start flossing. Control your Floss To floss your upper teeth, control the floss with your thumbs.  For your lower teeth, use your index fingers to guide and control the floss.   Follow the Curves Floss needs to curve around the tooth.  Teeth aren’t squares or rectangles – they’re circular or rounded!  Floss should follow around those curves.  Floss each side of each tooth using a curved piece of floss.  Your floss should look like a ‘C’ or a ‘V’, not a straight line.   Flossing Along the Contact Points...

Why Does Bay Dental Centre Do A Comprehensive Periodontal Examination?

And what is that, anyhow? The surrounding tissues in your mouth are very susceptible to inflammation, which is otherwise known as periodontal disease. In fact, over half of the adult population will have inflammation present in their mouth. In the last 5 to 10 years, there has been a shift in thinking about the consequences of this chronic inflammation. In the past, it was generally agreed that the consequence of this inflammation was that it lead to tooth loss.  In recent years, however, there has been rapid change in understanding inflammation and its consequence in humans. The consensus is that there is a connection and linkage between all inflammatory processes.  Those inflammatory processes don’t just include the periodontal disease we’re talking about here, but also systematic disease such as cardiovascular illnesses and diabetes. Looking at the body from this perspective, it’s clear that tooth loss is not the only consequence of periodontal disease. While in the past, your dentist might only have been concerned about your oral health, we at Bay Dental want to ensure you’re healthy from head to toe.  From a total body health perspective, that means we need to assess whether a patient has periodontal disease or not and how advanced it is. To assess periodontal diseases, we of course need accurate data to establish a diagnosis and a baseline for examinations in the future. This can only be done with a comprehensive periodontal examination.  As you’ve just read, periodontal disease can be related to other diseases in the body – meaning this examination is just one more way Bay Dental is looking after your...
