How To Determine if Your Tooth Cracked

Posted on 7/12/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
The enamel is the outer surface of your teeth. It is a very hard substance that protects your tooth from bacteria. As much as the enamel is the hardest tissue in your body, it can crack or fracture. A cracked tooth is risky and can cause conditions like tooth sensitivity. Here are ways you can tell if you have a cracked tooth. Tooth Pain When you experience pain when chewing or biting, it could be a sign of a cracked tooth.

Danger of Ingesting Too Many Sports Drinks

Posted on 6/21/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
Excessive consumption of sports drinks can be harmful to your oral health. These drinks are high in sugars and acids, which damage your teeth. Considering excessive consumption of sports drinks is detrimental to your teeth, avoid consuming them in large quantities, or take the necessary precautions after consuming them.

Reasons We Still Use Bitewing X-rays

Posted on 6/7/2021 by Dr. Jae Seon Kim
X-rays are a routine part of your dental checkup. We use invisible electro-magnetic waves to give us exact images of your teeth and gums. These x-rays are safe, efficient, and precise. We are able to see even a microscopic amount of tooth decay on x-rays that cannot be detected to the naked eye. Taking Bitewings Bitewings are a specific type of x-ray that we commonly utilize to help alert us to gum disease and cavities on all surfaces of the teeth and between the teeth. The name bitewing is coined after the small tabs that the patient bites to hold the x-ray film in place.

As the patient is still, the technician positions the camera, which will produce a safe amount of x-ray energy to expose the film. This process is very quick for both the patient and the technician. Within a few minutes, we can take bitewing x-rays that will allow us to uncover a myriad of dental issues. While...
