Wetaskiwin Dental News: Oral Health And Heart Disease

Top Wetaskiwin Family Dentists Attention Wetaskiwin dental patients: brushing twice daily may help reduce your risk of heart disease. Scientists have suspected for years that there is a link between gum disease and heart problems. But a recent study bears this out: people with moderate to advanced gum disease are at a greater risk for heart disease than those with healthy gums.

To quote from a Science Daily article:

“Once the data was adjusted for established cardio risk factors, the researchers found that participants who reported less frequent toothbrushing had a 70 percent extra risk of heart disease compared to individuals who brushed their teeth twice a day.”

The Scottish survey is one of many that validates the link between oral health and overall well-being. Simply put: you aren’t healthy unless your gums and teeth are healthy.

Why is this? It appears that oral health and heart disease are linked by the spread of bacteria that starts in the mouth, and spreads through the body in blood. Once they reach the heart, they can attach to any damaged area and cause inflammation. This, in turn, can lead to cardiovascular conditions.

It doesn’t matter if you are a lean distance runner with a blood pressure of 100 over 60. It doesn’t matter if you are a vegan who has eaten a nutritionally balanced, low-fat diet for the past five years. If you have inflamed gums and cavities, you are at risk for dangerous issues in other areas of the body.

So the take-away is to brush your teeth twice a day for health teeth and gums, and see us at Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney twice a year for cleanings and checkups. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry, gum disease treatment, and oral cancer screenings, among other services.

Happy Teeth: General Dentistry in Wetaskiwin

Your Alberta Dentist And Cleaning Your TeethKeeping your teeth clean is a key factor in maintaining a beautiful smile. The general dentistry practiced by Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney in Wetaskiwin is focused on clean, healthy teeth.

Your Partner in Oral Health

One of the benefits of visiting us twice a year is receiving a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing practices. Our dental hygienist will professionally clean and polish your teeth and assess their condition. If need be, we’ll also recommend improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits.

Having a professional dental cleaning is the only way to completely remove plaque (a sticky substance in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and contributes to dental caries).

Don’t Forget Basic Dental Hygiene

Of course, it’s essential that you do your part at home. Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque and tartar from building up, and results in cleaner, healthier teeth.

At the Wetaskiwin office of Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney, we practice general and cosmetic dentistry, and use diagnodent, digital x-rays, and other technical innovations. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Aching Jaw? TMD Treatment in Wetaskiwin

Aching Jaw In Wetaskiwin?

The human jaw is a complex joint – perhaps more complex than most people realize. Known technically as the temporomandibular joint, or TM joint, it is a sliding hinge that connects your jaw to your skull. At Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin, we know a condition called TMD can give people a lot of trouble.

Jaw pain has various causes, such as sinusitis. Sinusitis is the inflammation of the tissues that line your sinuses. When they’re inflamed, the sinuses exert pressure on surrounding areas. If it’s near the jaw, it can give you pain there. This happens a lot with a cold or allergies.

Jaw pain is often due to some type of dental issue, such as TMD, or temporomandibular disorder. In truth, TMD refers to a variety of conditions that affect the TM joints. Symptoms include:

Pain in or around the ear

  • Headaches
  • Neck aches
  • Jaw pain
  • Difficulty opening or closing the mouth
  • Clicking or popping when opening the mouth

TMD is more common in women than in men, especially women of childbearing age. It is also the most common non-dental, chronic facial pain.

Jaw pain should never be ignored. If you suspect you or a loved one has TMD, call Timothy G. Mahoney DDS in Wetaskiwin to see about treatment. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Whitening Options in Wetaskiwin

So you want to whiten your teeth? It’s an affordable way to improve your smile, look younger, and feel more confident when you interact with people in business or social settings. Dr. Timothy G. Mahoney can help.

Here are some things to consider before you commit to any teeth whitening procedure:

  1. Meet with us for a consultation. There are several teeth whitening systems, and a consultation will help you determine which treatment plan is best for you.
  2. It is essential to know that whitening does not affect existing fillings, veneers, or crowns.
  3. Decide how many shades lighter you want your teeth to be at the end of the treatment. Depending on the whitening method chosen, your teeth can be lightened three to eight shades.
  4. With any of the teeth whitening systems, tooth sensitivity may occur. In most cases, it won’t last for more than a day or so. Call us if it lasts longer.

Timothy G. Mahoney DDS offers Zoom! in-office teeth whitening, and take home bleaching kits. Teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we provide. Ask about dental implants and Invisalign clear braces.

Am I Objective? Smile Makeovers in Wetaskiwin

esthetic smile design Leduc

It is no secret that a beautiful, healthy smile can be your best attribute. After all, people notice it right away. Would you benefit from the sort of smile makeover you can get with cosmetic dentistry?

We all know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Can any us look at our smiles objectively? If you don’t like the smile you see in the mirror, it doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks. But what if you are not sure?

Some dental issues are generally considered to detract from brilliant smiles. Missing teeth is one of them. Even teeth missing in the back of the mouth can be unsightly. Fortunately, modern dental implants are so effective they are all but indistinguishable from real teeth.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile – even those that are healthy and aligned. There are several teeth whitening options available now that can take your smile from dull to dazzling in as little as one office visit.

There are a few unique smile characteristics that some people proudly show off and others wish to change. For instance, a gap between the two front teeth can become a trademark. Model Lauren Hutton has proudly flashed the gap in her teeth over a long and highly successful career. Others decided to do something about their gaps, and transformed them with options like porcelain veneers.

If you want an objective aesthetic evaluation of your smile, talk to a cosmetic dentist. There are a surprising number of options available in smile makeovers.

Bottom line? If you want to change your smile, you can, and Timothy G. Mahoney, here in Wetaskiwin, can help. Schedule a smile makeover consultation today!

Straight Talk: Clear Braces In Wetaskiwin

invisible braces Wetaskiwin

Unsightly metal braces are a thing of the past in Wetaskiwin. Orthodontic patients today have more options than ever before. At Timothy Mahoney DDS, we’re pleased to offer Invisalign clear braces and Inman Aligners.

If the thought of traditional braces has prevented you from straightening your teeth, Invisalign clear braces may be the choice you’ve been waiting for. Because these braces are removable, you don’t have to worry about getting food stuck in them. It also means you can floss and brush just like you always have. Best of all, of course, is that when the treatment is over, you’ll have beautiful straight teeth.

Not everyone is a candidate for Invisalign clear braces. We also offer Inman aligners, which are made to straighten the patient’s teeth in as little as six to sixteen weeks. They are a great solution for upper and lower crowding, teeth protrusion, and other situations.

To learn more about Invisalign clear braces and Inman aligners, follow the links in this blog post, or call our office to set up a consultation. We’ll go over the possibilities and easy options to meet your needs. Can’t wait to see you!

A Facelift For Your Teeth?

porcelain veneers price Wetaskiwin

Today’s message focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure—porcelain veneers.

Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are a wonderful way to fix a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.

Have you ever looked for a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to brighten and the overall condition of your teeth. Doctor Mahoney will counsel you on the most beneficial strategy.

The thickness, color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the outcome as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them constructed in the same “batch” at the lab.

The first step in the veneer process is to make an impression of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to fabricate the veneers to the perfect size, shape, color, and quality of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians elevate the level of artistry in this exacting process.

Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. Doctor Mahoney will advise you in detail on proper care of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are more durable than dental bonding, which is sometimes used to repair the same varieties of imperfections. Dental bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the relative prices of the two procedures.

If you are looking for a dentist with an artistic eye for flawless porcelain veneers, give Timothy G. Mahoney DDS a call. My name is Doctor Tim Mahoney and I have been serving Wetaskiwin, Alberta since 1983.

The Future Of Tooth Decay In Wetaskiwin

The Future Of Tooth Decay In Wetaskiwin

Dental patients in the Wetaskiwin area may wonder what would happen if they didn’t seek quality dental care on a regular basis. The answer isn’t pretty.

A common result of untreated cavities are abscesses. A tooth abscess is an infection near the root of the tooth or between the gum and the tooth. This collection of pus can be very uncomfortable, either causing a shooting pain or a dull throbbing pain. You may also experience bad breath, fever, swollen neck glands, and feelings of general discomfort associated with the infection.

Tooth abscesses can also be caused by a chip or a crack in the tooth that allows bacteria to enter.

To avoid unpleasant dental problems like abscesses, have regular visits with your Leduc, Camrose, or Ponoka dentist. With daily brushing and flossing and regular check-ups and cleanings, you can keep your mouth in peak health.

If you are looking for quality dental care in the Wetaskiwin area, come visit us here at Timothy G. Mahoney DDS. Doctor Tim Mahoney has been a dentist in Wetaskiwin since 1983.

We can also answer any questions you have about smile makeover procedures such as dental crowns, veneers, teeth whitening, dental bonding, gum countouring, and dental implants.
