Preserve Your Good Health by Replacing Old Metal Fillings with New Tooth Colored Fillings in Juno Beach, FL

December 24, 2014

stk103113corAre you walking around with a mouthful of metal? If you are one of the millions of patients with multiple metal (amalgam) dental fillings, you could be putting your dental and overall health at risk. While metal fillings were once the only choice for dental fillings, new tooth colored fillings are fast becoming the more popular restoration method. That’s because tooth colored fillings are more naturally looking and are better able to protect your long term health. For the modern dental restorations you deserve, make an appointment to replace your old metal fillings with new tooth colored fillings from Juno Beach Smiles today. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley can help you protect your long-term health and wellbeing. Juno Beach Smiles is the trusted restorative dentistry for patients throughout Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach, and the surrounding communities.

How Are Tooth Colored Fillings Made?

Tooth colored fillings are made from a composite of tooth-colored plastic and glass.

Why Replace Old Metal (Amalgam) Fillings with New Tooth Colored Fillings?

  • Health Dangers: Metal fillings are made of about 50% mercury. Mercury is a dangerous neuro-toxin. Symptoms associated with prolonged mercury exposure include: memory loss, auto immune disorders, fatigue, tremors, and cognitive impairment.
  • Cracking and Sensitivity: Aged metal fillings can crack and partly detach causing sensitivity or pain where cracks are deep. Cracking close to tooth nerves can be particularly discomforting.
  • Bite Force: With tooth colored fillings, your bite force when chewing is distributed more evenly across the tooth structure, which reduces the likelihood of tooth cracking.
  • Preventive Care: Tooth colored fillings allow Dr. Keuning to see underlying tooth decay more readily because of visible staining around the edges of the filling. With metal fillings, tarnish and corrosion make it much more difficult to identify new decay.

Dental Care and Eating Disorders

October 22, 2014

507399027It’s estimated that more than 10 million Americans are currently suffering from some form of eating disorder. Your dietary habits and nutrition can have dramatic affects on your oral health. Studies have shown that people with eating disorders and severely restricted diets have oral health problems caused by their eating habits. Up to 89% of bulimic patients show signs of tooth erosion and decay due to repeated regurgitation. If you are suffering from nutritional deficiencies it’s important to seek dental care immediately. Make an appointment with Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley at Juno Beach Smiles. The dentists at Juno Beach Smiles want to partner with you to create your healthiest possible smile. Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley proudly serve patients throughout Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach and surrounding communities.

Eating Disorders and Dental Care Concerns

Those suffering from anorexia, bulimia or binge and compulsive eating disorders may first show signs of the disorder by declining oral health. Signs that you may have dental complications related to nutritional deficiencies can include, erosive lesions on the surface of the teeth, weakened and translucent teeth, sensitivity and spontaneous tooth pain, bad breath, mouth sores and gum disease. Compulsive regurgitation can also affect the color, length and shape of the teeth. Besides the acid erosion damage from regurgitation, eating disorders also cause deficiencies in the vitamins, minerals, proteins that contribute to healthy teeth and gums.

Dental Care for Eating Disorders in Juno Beach, FL

As with any other medical condition that affects your oral health, no cosmetic dental treatment should be undergone until you have started treatment to address the eating disorder. However, treatment to prevent further damage to the teeth and gums should be started immediately. Make an appointment with Dr. Keuning and Dr. Riley at Juno Beach Smiles. The dentists at Juno Beach Smiles are committed to your overall well being and proudly serve patients throughout Juno Beach, FL, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, North Palm Beach and surrounding cities.

Decrease Your Risk for Cavities by Knowing the Risk Factors

July 25, 2013

general dentistryNot everyone has the same level of risk when it comes to developing cavities. Knowing what risk factors are associated with them can help you protect your smile and improve your oral health.  That’s what today’s post is all about. If you have any questions afterwards, feel free to call Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic Dentistry to let us know.

Having a cavity already increases your risk of developing new cavities

If you think you might have a cavity, or a doctor has diagnosed one, have it treated as soon as possible with a filling or crown. This will help you support your oral health and prevent the spread of decay

Watch what you eat

Foods and drinks that are sugary or acidic will increase your risk of decay by spurring the production of bacteria and acid in your mouth. This, in turn, can weaken your tooth enamel and lead to cavities.

Poor oral hygiene

Are you brushing and flossing enough? We recommend brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day. This will protect your smile from the acid and bacteria that comes from sugary or acidic foods and drinks. Getting enough fluoride is especially important because it helps to strengthen your enamel.

Poorly done fillings or crowns

When a filling or crown isn’t done the way it should be, your smile may be especially vulnerable to bacteria, as you may have bacteria deposits in a hard-to-brush area. Give our Juno Beach office a call if you’ve had a negative experience with another doctor.

Family history

Sometimes a patient’s increased risk of cavities is due to genetics, but in other cases, it may just be that good oral health habits weren’t taught at home. Remember to brush and floss regularly, and make an antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash a regular part of your regimen.

Not seeing your dentist enough

Dr. Duane Keuning and Dr. Greg Riley recommend coming in for regular visits twice a year. Why? So we can watch for changes in your smile. Cavities need to be treated as soon as possible, and with a visit every six months, we can provide early care that will help you support your oral and overall health.

Do you need to schedule your next visit with Dr. Keuning or Dr. Riley? Give us a call today. Our Juno Beach dental office is happy to provide general, cosmetic, and restorative care to patients from North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Tequesta, and surrounding areas.
