Think when it comes to brushing your teeth, more is better?
Michigan periodontist and dental implant dentist Dr. Joseph Nemeth talks about the results of over-brushing your teeth on Detroit's Channel 4 News.
Brushing your teeth too often or too hard can result in gum recession. This means, that you may become 'long in the tooth'. Below you can watch Dr. Nemeth talk about over-brushing.
Recent statistics show that the average American will live to be almost 79 years old. Most people strive to live long healthy lives, even beyond those 79 years. To reach the 100 year mark, there are several things people can do to extend the length of their lives.
One of the first things people should consider doing to live longer, healthier lives is to take care of their oral health. This starts with proper brushing and flossing. According to several studies, periodontal disease shows a possible relation to systemic inflammation and cardiovascular disease. Research shows that people with gum disease are twice as likely to have heart disease than people with healthy gums. To help prevent gum disease, it is vital that people practice good oral hygiene and visit the dentist twice a year. If you have gum disease, or have red, swollen and bleeding gums, the periodontal experts at Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates have been successfully treating gum disease for over 25 years and are always accepting new patients. To contact them, please call (248) 357-3100 or visit their website at www.drnemeth.com. They also specialize in replacing missing teeth, which will help you to look and feel younger!
Gum disease can now be treated virtually painlessly with a laser. Lasers help to minimize bleeding and promote faster bleeding. They also dramatically increase comfort for the patient.
Also important for living a long life is eating omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids. While most everybody has heard of the health benefits associated with eating omega-3’s, lesser known are the omega-9’s. These are extremely anti-inflammatory and are found in monounsaturated oils such as olive oil.
Eating dark chocolate may also be beneficial to one’s health. It has been found to improve blood pressure, insulin resistance and lipid profiles. Tasting great is just a bonus! In terms of food, eating Indian food may also help to cleanse the liver and prevent cancer due to large quantities of turmeric in Indian curry.
Lastly, don’t smoke, exercise often, eat lots of fruits and vegetable, avoid fried, fatty, and overly sugary foods, and laugh often!
There’s nothing like a painful toothache or other dental emergency when you are far from home to ruin your vacation or business trip. It can be a traveler’s nightmare especially because you are far from your regular dentist! Dental professionals suggest getting a routine check-up and teeth cleaning before you go on a trip to avoid any mishaps.
However, if you do have a dental problem far from home, there are temporary remedies available to help. For toothaches, over-the-counter pain relievers include aspirin and acetaminophen. Other “home” treatments include rinsing your mouth with salt water or dabbing some clove oil directly on the bad tooth. Clove oil has bacteria killing properties along with a remarkable numbing effect. There is also numbing power in cooled peppermint tea. In cases where a lost filling or broken tooth is causing the pain, “caulking” the tooth with softened chewing gum can ease the pain.
With chipped or broken teeth, be sure to save any pieces. Rinse the mouth using warm water and rinse any broken pieces. If there’s bleeding, apply a piece of gauze to the area for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. Apply a cold compress to the outside of the mouth, cheek, or lip near the broken/chipped tooth to keep any swelling down and reduce pain.
For irritated gum tissue, ginseng can be used to alleviate the pain. A ginseng tonic can be applied directly to the gums to promote circulation and speed healing. An additional home remedy suggestion is to use a wet tea bag for tooth or gum pain. Tea contains astringent tannins that have the power to shrink swollen tissue and stop bleeding.
How do you handle a knocked out tooth? First, shake off debris (rinsing or scrubbing could remove important periodontal ligaments). Then place the tooth in a container of milk or back in its socket and try to reach a dentist within 30 minutes. For a permanent solution to missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent, and natural solution. If you are interested in getting dental implants, it is best you wait to see a specialist in your own area. If you are in the Detroit area, Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates are the Detoit tooth implant experts. For an appointment, please call 248-357-3100 or visit www.drnemeth.com.

Gingival recession may be caused by a variety of different factors including overly aggressive brushing, clenching and grinding the teeth, and improper tooth alignment. This recession may cause tooth sensitivity, decay, a cosmetically compromised smile, bone loss, and if bad enough, possibly tooth loss. In this video, Detroit periodontist, Dr. Joe Nemeth explains what causes gum recession, how to treat it, and tips for preventing it.
Most people believe that the longer and harder they brush their teeth, the better. While it is important to brush your teeth thoroughly and regularly every single day, it is also important that you don’t OVER brush your teeth, as it may cause the gums to recede.
As people get older, their gums may recede, making the teeth appear very long. Recession may also occur due to abrasive brushing, clenching and grinding the teeth, and improper tooth position. Gum recession often results in root sensitivity, a cosmetically compromised appearance of the smile, caries, bone loss, and if bad enough, eventually tooth loss!
To treat gingival recession, a connective tissue graft may be the best option. The procedure covers the exposed root with tissue that is taken from other areas of the mouth, or often artificial gingival tissue such as Alloderm. This will help alleviate the tooth sensitivity and provide a cosmetically enhanced smile. Gum tissue will soon regenerate back to its original level.
Dr. Joe Nemeth has been treating gingival recession for over 25 years now. As Detroit’s leading periodontist, he has experience treating various different periodontal problems. For an appointment with Dr. Nemeth, please contact Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates at 248-357-3100.
To help prevent recession at home, the best thing to do is practice proper brushing. It is important to use a soft brush and gently brush the outer tooth surfaces at a 45 degree angle using a vibrating back and forth rolling motion. Remember not to “saw” away at your teeth and gums; gently but thorough is best!
