Preventing Tooth Discoloration Gilbert, AZ
Brushing your teeth after every meal will help prevent some stains. Dentist recommend that you rinse your mouth with water after having wine, coffee or other drinks or foods that can stain your teeth. Regular cleanings by a dental hygienist will also help to prevent surface stain. Stains that are caused by damage to a nerve or blood vessel in the inner part of the tooth sometimes can be prevented by having root canal treatment. A root canal will remove any organic material before it has a chance to decay and darken. However, teeth that undergo root canals may darken anyway. To prevent stains in children, avoid drinking water that contains a high fluoride concentration. You can check the concentration of fluoride is your drinking water by call the public health department. If you would like more information, give Power Ranch Dental a call at (480) 988- 2282.
