Dental Insurance Kids, Dental Problem With My Gums.

Monday, Oct. 30th 2017 6:30 AM

Question: Whenever I brush my teeth my gums bleed. I brush twice day with a regular toothbrush so I am not sure why my gums are bleeding.

Answer: It is possible that you may have gingivitis. Gingivitis is a form of periodontal disease. Gingivitis is due to the long-term effects of plaque deposits on your teeth. Plaque is a sticky material made of bacteria, mucus, and food debris that develops on the exposed parts of the teeth. It is also a major cause of tooth decay. One of the signs of gingivitis is bleeding gums while brushing.  Talk to your dentist and get a complete dental check up.

Dental Insurance Kids, What is Leukoplakia

Tuesday, Oct. 24th 2017 5:00 AM

Leukoplakia is more of a clinical term than a specific condition, used to describe a wide range of white mouth sores. Leukoplakia is a condition that causes thick, plaque-like white patches on the tongue, gums, and lining of the mouth.  Mouth irritants and irritating activities, such as smoking, often cause leukoplakia. Typically, cases of white patches in the mouth are harmless and symptoms resolve on their own. However, if the condition is leukoplakia, it can be associated with oral cancer.

Tuesday, Sep. 26th 2017 10:26 AM

Mouthwash is designed to help fight against plaque, bacteria, and other deposits in the mouth.
