If you suffer from asthma and have frequently used inhalers or nebulizer treatments containing albuterol or other medications, you might be surprised to learn that you could be at a higher risk of significant dental decay and gum disease. Even after treating the underlying issues, it's still possible that stained or discolored teeth still exist. That is often the result of the dry mouth commonly associated with those treatments as well as the irritation within your mouth that could occur following a breathing treatment or use of an inhaler.
Keeping your teeth in good condition is essential as tooth damage can be a problem that will never fully heal. While it may be possible for your dentist to correct the cosmetic issues caused by tooth damage, the actual tooth tissue will not regenerate. Unfortunately, there are many steps that people will overlook that could greatly enhance the quality of their smiles.
Regularly Take Photographs Of Your Smile
Tooth discoloration is one of the more embarrassing and common problems that people will develop.
Teenagers are often self conscious about their bodies as they begin to mature. They start to notice 'flaws' within themselves, such as their hair color being too dull, their skin being too pimply, or their teeth being too off-colored or even crooked. When your growing child begins expressing a dislike for their smile you can find ways to give them the confidence they need by bringing the subject up with their dentist at their regular checkups and cleanings.
Whiter teeth are desired by many people, and some people even have an obsession with getting their teeth whiter. If you have severely discolored and stained teeth, you may feel that a sparkling smile is out of reach. The following are a few ways you could attain beautiful "pearly whites."
This is an option that can be done at home or in a dentist office. Dentists can provide proper fitting trays and the whitening solution for at home use.
If you want to make a change for the better this year, a great place to start is with your teeth. Improving your dental care is one of the fastest, easiest ways to improve your health because the steps are so small and the results so apparent. Building upon already established habits is a good way to start upping that dental game.
Switch to a Non-Alcohol Mouthwash
If you currently use a mouthwash that contains alcohol, try switching to one that does not contain alcohol.
