  2. Oral Care FAQs

    Oral Care FAQs

    What is tooth decay?

    Tooth decay, also known as dental caries, is a disease of the teeth that affects individuals of all ages, although it is more common in children and young adults. Dental caries occurs when the tooth enamel is destroyed. Decay begins at the tooth’s hard external surface, and may advance to internal structures of the tooth including the dentin and pulp. The earlier decay is treated, the better chance of saving the tooth.

    How does it happen?

    The bacteria inside of the mouth changes the food (primarily sugars and starches) we eat into acids. Over a period of time, the bacteria and acids form a sticky deposit called dental plaque that clings to the teeth. If the plaque is not removed, the acids will destroy the tooth’s enamel surface –resulting in holes or cavities. Sugar and starches (such as candy, cakes, cookies, milk and pop) are responsible for much of tooth decay, but sour or acidic foods (such as lemons and fruit juices), also contribute to decay because they change the pH (acidity level) in the mouth. If left untreated, the decay will progress and can lead to tooth infection. Children’s teeth primarily decay in the grooves. In addition to the grooves, older adults decay in other areas, including the roots of the teeth, which may be exposed as a result of receding gums.

    How do you prevent tooth decay?

    Taking good care of your teeth, eating nutritious foods and visiting the dentist on a regular basis will help prevent cavities. Here are some guidelines for preventing tooth decay:

    • Brushing twice a day with a toothpaste
    • Cleaning between the teeth daily with floss
    • Cleaning the teeth and gums daily with a Hydro Floss® oral irrigator
    • Eat well-balanced meals and limit snacking
    • Visit the dentist on a regular basis for check-ups and cleanings.

    If brushing is not possible, the next

  3. Hydrofloss FAQ's

    Hydrofloss FAQ's

    Can the Hydrofloss oral irrigator be used with tap water (containing minerals and fluoride) or does it require distilled water?

    It is better to use tap water or filtered water that retains the trace minerals. Tap water was used for the clinical studies that were undertaken with the Hydrofloss Oral Irrigator. The reason for this is the hydromagnetic technology. The Hydrofloss places an electrical charge on the minerals and reverses their polarity as well as reversing the polarity of the bacteria in the mouth. Teeth have a positive charge on the surface, while bacteria and minerals are negatively charged, so they are attracted to one another. When using the Hydrofloss the polarity is reversed inhibiting the bacteria's ability to adhere to the teeth.

    Is it safe to use the Hydofloss if you've had dental surgery or seriously inflamed gums?

    The Hydrofloss Kitty Waterjet can be used by those with crown and bridge work, implants, veneers, orthodontic appliances, bad breath (halitosis), inflamed and bleeding gums and periodontal pockets. The Hydrofloss has an adjustable pressure for comfort preference with a maximum pressure at 60 psi, which has been tested to be safe on the gingival tissue. For anyone with any form of gum disease, it's highly recommended to add the Perioscript Solution by BioPro to the HydroFloss Kitty Waterjet before each use.

    What's the difference between the HydroFloss and other water irrigation devices?

    The Hydro Floss is unique in that it is a magnetic oral irrigator, producing polarized water molecules which prevent plaque and calculus from attaching to the tooth surface.

    According to a study published on the Journal of Clinical Periodontology (May 1993; 20: 314-317), the HydroFloss provides a 44% greater reduction in tartar (calculus) and bacterial debris.

  5. What is Dental Plaque?

    What is Dental Plaque?

    What is dental plaque?

    Plaque is a colourless film that is constantly forming in the mouth. It is made up of a combination of bacteria, saliva and acids that form into a sticky deposit –adhering to the teeth. Plaque can irritate the gums and the acids can destroy the tooth’s enamel surface –causing holes or cavities. When plaque isn’t removed, it turns into calculus and tartar.

    What is a plaque attack?

    A “plaque attack” occurs when sugar and acids in the mouth begin to dissolve the enamel on the tooth and starts to decay.

    How can you prevent plaque?

    Good oral hygiene –including brushing at least twice a day, flossing, and oral irrigation with the Hydro Floss® oral irrigator –and regular check-ups with the dentist will help eliminate plaque and tooth decay. Dentists also recommend eating nutritiously and limiting the number of between-meal snacks.

    Who is affected by plaque?

    Plaque affects those as young as six months who are just getting their primary teeth, and it continues to form in your mouth for your whole life.

    What if plaque is not removed?

    If plaque is not removed, it can lead to periodontal disease (gum disease). The two most common forms of gum disease are gingivitis and adult periodontitis. Gingivitis is an inflammation or infection of the gums (gingiva) and it is an early stage of periodontal disease. Gums become red, inflamed and swollen. If not treated, gingivitis may progress to adult periodontitis, a more serious stage of gum disease, that can lead to tooth loss.

    When should you contact a dentist?

    It is recommended to visit a dentist at least every six months for a cleaning and a thorough examination. If you experience any problems with your gum or teeth, you should consult a dentist immediately.

  6. Oral Cancer

    Oral Cancer

    What is oral cancer?

    Oral and throat cancer, also referred to as pharyngeal cancer, may involve the lips, gums, tongue, teeth, cheeks, roof or floor of the mouth or back of the throat. It usually starts out as a small white spot that looks like an irritation, or an ulcer that may be red or white. The most common site is on the side of the tongue, and it oftentimes is not painful. The lesion may become infected and increase in size. There are 30,000 new cases of oral cancer each year, according to the National Centers for Disease Control. The Center estimates that 8,000 individuals die each year from oral cancer. Some tumors are benign, meaning non-cancerous, and others are malignant or cancerous. If a malignant growth is not treated, cancer cells can spread to other areas of the body. With early diagnosis and advanced technology, oral cancer can be treated with success.

    What are the symptoms?

    The symptoms, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), include: A sore on the lip or in the mouth that does not heal, a lump on the lip or in the throat or mouth, a white or red patch on the gums, tongue or mouth lining, unusual bleeding, numbness or pain in the mouth, a sore throat that won’t disappear, or a feeling something is caught in the throat, difficulty or pain with swallowing or chewing, jaw swelling that causes dentures to fit poorly or be uncomfortable, voice changes, and ear pain.

    How is it detected?

    Most dentists or hygienists check for oral cancer during the routine examination. If you have any symptoms, you should contact your dentist or physician immediately. Oral cancer is detected via a biopsy that includes removing all or part of the tissue growth. The sample is sent to a lab where the cells are examined.

    How is it prevented?

    Good oral hygiene can help prevent oral cancer, as well as having your dentist or physician check your mouth regularly for skin lesions and abrasions.

  7. Gum Disease

    Gum Disease

    What is periodontal disease?

    Periodontal disease is also known as gum disease or periodontitis. There are various stages of gum disease, and the two most common forms are gingivitis and adult periodontitis. Gingivitis is an inflammation or infection of the gums gingiva) that is an early stage of periodontal disease. When left untreated, gingivitis may progress to periodontal disease, which can progress to the loss of teeth. Only a professional –a dentist or periodontist –can diagnose gum disease, which often is painless. Research shows that periodontal disease may also be linked to heart, lung, kidney and respiratory disease, and to premature birth.

    How does it progress?

    A combination of bacteria and acids in the mouth form a sticky deposit called dental plaque that clings to the teeth. Plaque that is not removed from the teeth hardens into calculus and tartar, which aggravate the gums. Pockets (filled with plaque) form between the teeth and gums –causing the irritated gums to detach or pull away from the teeth. At this point, the infection has advanced below the gum line and it can then destroy the soft tissue, bone and ligaments that support the teeth. The teeth may become abscessed and loose, and even fall out. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

    What are the symptoms?

    The symptoms of gingivitis are inflamed, swollen gums that bleed easily when they are brushed or flossed. Many times bad breath is present and there are times when there is little or no pain in the early stages. The late stage symptoms of periodontitis are loose teeth, spaces in between the teeth, pain upon chewing, pus around the teeth or gums, or abscessed teeth. Receding gums may be a symptom and the tooth may appear to look longer because the gums are withdrawing. Also the teeth may be sensitive to cold, hot and sugars.

    Who is at risk for gum disease?

  8. Bad Breath - Halitosis

    Bad Breath - Halitosis

    What is halitosis or bad breath?

    Halitosis is a condition of having offensive or “bad breath”. Nobody wants to have bad breath, and many consumers are in search of Products –including toothpaste, mouthwash and mints –that promise a quick cure for halitosis and fresher-smelling breath. Bad breath is often self-perceived and there is no test or device to diagnose or measure the problem. Breath mints or mouthwash may freshen the breath short-term, but do not often get to the root of the problem. A common source of bad breath is the mouth and tongue. therefore, a trip to the dentist is the first step to rule out any dental problems.

    What causes halitosis?

    Decaying or rotten teeth. Bacteria and acids in the mouth form a sticky deposit called dental plaque that clings to the teeth. If the plaque is not removed, the acids will destroy the tooth’s enamel surface –resulting in holes and cavities. If left untreated, tooth decay can result in a foul odor in the mouth.

    Food trapped in the teeth or tongue. Bacteria and food particles can become lodged in the teeth or stuck on the papillae (small projections on the tongue) - causing bad breath. It’s important to brush and floss the teeth, and brush the tongue and back of it to remove food debris. Tongue scrapers are available to help remove debris from the tongue. The Hydro Floss® Oral Irrigator is an excellent tool to remove trapped food and debris from the teeth and gum.

    The Hydro Floss® Oral Irrigator also assist in the removal and flushing of plaque and tartar build-up on the teeth.

  9. Child Oral Health

    Child Oral Health

    Cavity prevention is not the only concern parents should have when considering their children’s oral health. Recent studies show that periodontal disease continues to plague millions of Americans, including children. The best way to ensure that your child does not get cavities or gingivitis is to instill proper oral habits early. Good oral hygiene routines should be established as early as infancy and continued throughout life.

    When do teeth appear?

    Teeth begin to erupt at about six months of age. The tooth appears first and the root begins to develop underneath. When a child’s mouth is fully developed there should be 20 teeth—10 on the bottom and 10 on the top. However, the top and bottom teeth erupt at different times.

    Top: The central incisors, or very front teeth, are the first to erupt between 6 to 12 months. The teeth next to them, called the lateral incisors, erupt between 9 to 13 months. The canines erupt between 16 to 22 months. The fist molars erupt between 13 to 19 months. And the second molars erupt between 25 to 33 months.

    Bottom: The central incisors erupt between 6 to 10 months. The lateral incisors erupt between 10 to 16 months. The canines erupt between 17 to 23 months. The first molars erupt between 14 to 18 months. The second molars erupt between 23 to 31 months. Under all this activity, the 32 adult teeth are forming. In fact, the adult teeth began developing when the baby was three months old.

    At what age should my child visit the dentist?

    Children should visit the dentist for the first time between the ages of six months to one year. Do not wait for the child to be in pain to bring him or her to the dentist. Most procedures are painfree and your child should know that a trip to the dentist can be a comfortable and fun experience. Regular brushing should become a part of a child’s daily routine as soon as he or she can hold a brush. Parents
