We love back to school season at Advanced Dental Care — but we also know kids’ dental health can get a little out of whack during August and September. Bruxism, or nighttime teeth grinding, may occur as your child starts to adjust their sleeping schedules to wake up early again. As your child gets back into the figurative grind, make sure their teeth aren’t getting into one, too. Learn more about preventing stress and associated bruxism in this week’s blog post from your dentist in Costa Mesa, Dr. Jeremy B. Jorgenson!

Laser Gum Therapy and Invisalign
Most think of New Year’s Day or Spring as the time for new beginnings, but what better time to start than now. November marks the turn into the winter season and while most of us are usually wrapped up in holiday gatherings and gifts for others, we forget about one very important person.. YOU! We have to take care of ourselves to be able to take care of others the best we can. This starts with total mind and body health, and especially your smile!

Two of the most common conditions in dentistry include Periodontal Disease and Crooked Teeth. Periodontal Disease is an active infection in the gums that must be treated by a professional. A common misconception is that a patient can brush or floss a little extra, but toothbrushes and floss can not reach the bacteria that have now burrowed pockets around our teeth. When left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to a number of other conditions including tooth loss. By using traditional procedures such as Scaling and Root Planing combined with our advanced technology diode lasers and medicinal irrigation we can rid you of the bacteria that is causing the infection!

Costa Mesa Dentist Talks Tooth Sensitivity
What causes tooth sensitivity?
Do you experience an occasional zing throughout the day? Sensitivity to hot and cold? Or constant dull, achy pain? These are all signs you are suffering from tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity can be very unpleasant and also be a sign of a more serious dental condition. If you’re experiencing tooth pain, Orange County Dentist Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson can help!
Tooth Sensitivity causing Dental Pain
Tooth sensitivity can come in many forms and from many causes. You can simply be sipping in air, taking a bit of your lunch, or trying to concentrate at work and you notice that something doesn’t feel right. Tooth sensitivity, also called dentin hypersensitivity, can occur when the outer layers of the tooth, the enamel and cementum, become thin and expose the dentin layer underneath. When dentin is exposed, the tooth root and nerve are closer to the surface and more likely to become irritated.

Invisalign – The CLEAR Choice
Whether you’re 4, 40, or 400, it’s always the right time to get a healthier smile with Invisalign! Good dental hygiene habits are essential to maintaining good oral health, but sometimes there is more you can do! Invisalign not only improves the LOOK of your smile, but also improve the HEALTH of your smile! When your teeth are misaligned, you aren’t able to brush and floss to your full potential. You could also be experiencing TMJ or other damage as a result of the alignment of your bite.
When you brush and floss, you aim to remove the tartar and plaque that builds up on your teeth and cause decay. This is why RDH Lisa Thurm stresses the importance of flossing twice a day! If your teeth are not straight, it makes accessing those hard to reach areas even harder. Invisalign, clear braces, can quickly and easily straighten teeth so you can reach your full health potential.
