Allergic to brushing teeth
Do you sometimes feel off after brushing your teeth? Do you suffer from allergy symptoms? Then it may not be your imagination playing a trick on you, but rather a real allergic reaction caused by toothpaste because some people struggle with tolerance issues regarding its ingredients (e.g., essences and preservatives). Before we get some more information about how to combat such symptoms, we need to learn a bit more about what actually causes them.

Gum bleeding as a warning signal

Gum bleeding as a warning signal
Surely, we all know this: after thoroughly brushing our teeth, we rinse out our mouths and suddenly discover a reddish discoloring in the rinsing water while it slowly but certainly makes its way towards the drain in a circular fashion. After a closer examination of the mouth, we determine that the source of this reddish discoloring is our irritated gum line and we quickly dismiss the event as a triviality. In many cases, this is not the best course of action since bleeding gums (especially those that keep bleeding over several days) are a definitive warning signal for a potentially more serious problem such as an inflammation inside the mouth.

Stopping tooth decay in a flash

Added on 20.05.2019

Stopping tooth decay in a flash
In cases of tooth decay, all of us are accustomed to watching the dentist reach for the drill to remove destroyed dental substance in an effort to prepare a clean hole in the treated tooth for a long-term filling. Though this is most often absolutely necessary, most patients get at least a slightly queasy feeling every time a drill comes into play. Now, how would these patients feel if there was a way to stop tooth decay completely painlessly and without the use of a drill in only a few seconds?

Laughing gas helps you relax
Over half of all dental treatment-seeking patients have a queasy feeling when paying a dental practice a visit and some of them even suffer from so called dentophobia which manifests itself in the form of shaking, sweating, and stomach cramps and which, in severe cases, can also lead to panic attacks. In order to ensure an uneventful dentist visit, an increasing number of dentists nowadays use laughing gas, which has been in use as a proven sedative in many dental practices around the globe for many years. Sounds great, right? Then let's find out a little bit more!

Fluorosis causes stains
Whether fluoride does or does not help one’s teeth is one of those topics that keep emerging over and over again in newspapers, magazines, and even on TV. Many say that fluoride is great for teeth because it hardens the dental enamel. Others, however, are worried that too heavy usage may be poisonous.

Dentist visit at home

Dentist visit at home
Thanks to modern dentistry, many dental procedures that were once considered unrealistic, exceptionally difficult, or even impossible in the relatively recent past are nowadays considered routine. Nowadays, in the age of mobile technology, dentists can also opt to “go mobile” and fit virtually everything a modern dental practice needs into one to two special suitcases that they can take directly to their patients’ homes, upon request. This all sounds very futuristic but does it even make sense for a dental practice to “go mobile”?

Dental care during pregnancy

Dental care during pregnancy
In Austria, people used to say ”every child costs a tooth“ and though this is nowadays no longer literally true, it is absolutely essential for future mothers to take extra good care of their teeth while they are expecting. The reason for this is that a pregnant woman undergoes significant hormonal change which leads to several key changes in her entire body including her oral cavity.

Smoking is bad for your teeth

Smoking is bad for your teeth
In our youth, probably most of us at least gave it a try, even if only to look “cool” and to not fall behind the circle of friends. Probably unsurprisingly, we’re talking about smoking here. For some of us, the calming “fag” is merely part of a temporary phase while, for others, it becomes a lasting habit or even an addiction. And those, who can or do not want to rid themselves of the habit of smoking, face not only constantly increasing cigarette prices and an array of potentially detrimental lung diseases, but also an increased likelihood of developing dental problems.

Baby bottle tooth decay as a hidden danger

Baby bottle tooth decay as a hidden danger
We all love our children – even if they sometimes become annoying when it is time to brush their teeth and go to bed. In such moments, many parents resort to giving the small ones a bottle to calm them down with a yummy fruit juice or warm milk. In most cases, this tactic works wonders, but, unfortunately, too many parents are completely uninformed about the potentially detrimental consequences that this approach can have on their kids’ teeth ...

Thumbsucking can be damaging

Thumbsucking can be damaging
Only very few among us did not do it when we were small children. Whether to calm ourselves or to make falling asleep easier – sucking on our thumbs seemed to be the way to go. Unfortunately, all too often, we were also scolded by the parents who kept telling us that food and drinks – but not our thumbs – belong in our mouths. So why did they always make such a big deal out of thumbsucking and why do so many children start doing it early on in their lives in the first place? All good questions that deserve answers.

Chalk teeth causing trouble
So you wake up on a beautiful Saturday morning and are already looking forward to a relaxing day with the family. The sun is shining and it would be a colossal waste to spend one of the last warm fall days inside at home. Lets get the kids ready and their teeth brushed – but hold on a second: since when do milk teeth (i.e., temporary or baby teeth) come with brown-ish coloring?

Amalgam tooth fillings
Many of us can likely still remember it – the uncomfortable sound of the dentist’s drill followed by careful dabbing and the placement of a silver-colored filling.

Dental bridge instead of tooth gap
Dental implant or dental bridge – or maybe stick with the tooth gap? When someone has to ask him- or herself this question, most likely one of the following two scenarios is true:

A. Bad accident results in damage inside and around the mouth that requires professional attention

Dentist needed for periodontosis treatment
After a long day at work and an even longer work week, it was finally Friday evening – Hooray! Alright then, off to a few cold ones with a few colleagues to let off some steam. I had already noticed it a few days earlier. On the way to the bar, it became even more noticeable. And once we sat down for a chat while waiting for our drinks, it only became worse ...
