How do I know if I have a cavity?

Cavity treatment in Costa Mesa

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), tooth decay is the second most prevalent health condition in the U.S. after the common cold.  If you’ve never had a cavity, great work!  However, it’s very likely that at some point in your life you will develop at least one.

How will you know if you have a cavity? Just because you aren’t experiencing any pain doesn’t mean everything is fine and dandy.  You could have active decay that is in the early stages and may be able to be reversed with professional dental care.  Tooth decay exhibits a variety of symptoms depending on the severity of your tooth decay.

Symptoms of a Cavity

• Nothing (best time to catch decay in the early stages)
• Continuous or spontaneous tooth pain
• Tooth sensitivity
• Pain (dull or sharp) when eating something sweet, hot, or cold
• Visible staining on the surface of your tooth which may appear brown, black, or white
• Visible holes in your tooth (the holes are likely cavities)
• Pain when chewing or biting your teeth down together

What to do if you have a cavity?

A quick exam at our Costa Mesa dental office will let you know the best course of treatment for your particular situation. The recommendation could be as simple as a “watch” with recommendations for home care to fluoride treatment.

If the decay is more pervasive or you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson may recommend treatment for the cavity.  Treatment options could include a composite (tooth-colored) filling for moderate decay.  If the decay is covering many surfaces of the tooth or has affected deeper layers of the tooth a dental crown may be recommended.

How to prevent a cavity?

You can help prevent the damaging effects of plaque and tartar at home by brushing twice a day with a soft bristled toothbrush, using a toothpaste with fluoride, and flossing at least once a day.  Additional preventative measures include eating a well-balanced diet, rinsing after meals if you can’t brush, and asking your dentist about fluoride treatment.  Most importantly, seeing your dentist at regularly prescribed visits can determine if the above measures are effective for you.

Importance of Routine Dental Visits

Obviously, the best time to catch a cavity would be in the early stages, when there are few, if any, symptoms (trust us on this one).

That’s why the American Dental Association (ADA) and dental professionals stress the importance of maintaining regular visits to your dentist.  Although we are always here when you need us, we don’t want to get into the habit of only seeing you when you are in pain!

Back-to-School – Smile Smart Tips

August 14, 2018

Smile Smart Tips for Success!

Going back-to-school is bittersweet for both parents and students.  No one wants summer to end, but students enjoy going back to school to see their friends again, getting back into school sports, and moving one step closer to graduation!

Even though going back-to-school is an exciting time, students can experience anxiety.  Anxiety can interfere with sleep, wellness, and performance.  But don’t worry!  We’ve compiled some smile smart tips to help you smoothly transition back into the school year.

Smile Smart Tip # 1

Of course our first tip is to complete your dental exam and x-rays, and cleaning, before school starts.  These services are often covered at 100% by dental insurance.  Nothing can distract students more than throbbing, achy tooth pain that requires an emergency dental visit. Make sure your dental health is an A+ for academic success!

Smile Smart Tip # 2

Our second tip is to get enough sleep.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends:

  • 9-12 hours for school-age children
  • 8-10 hours for teens
  • 7 or more hours for adults

Not getting restful sleep?  Schedule a consultation for Sleep Apnea or Bruxism.  A custom sleep device to treat sleep apnea can improve sleep quality and reduce chances for heart disease or stroke.  A custom nightguard to prevent grinding that can cause poor sleep, headaches, and aggrevated TMJ.

best dentist costa mesa - emergency dentist costa mesa - cosmetic dentist costa mesa - dental implants costa mesa - dentist near me - dentist open now - saturday dentist - ppo dentist - delta dental - teeth whitening - dental veneers - laser dentistry - invisalignSmile Smart Tip # 3

Our third tip is to choose healthy food and drinks to feel your best and keep your teeth strong and healthy.  Avoid drinks with color additives, sugar, carbonation, or acid to protect against decay and erosion.  Choose foods with calcium, minerals like cheese, yogurt, almonds, leafy greens, and carrots.

Smile Smart Tip # 4

Our fourth tip is to protect your smile during school sports.  An injury can cause broken teeth, dead teeth, and even permanent tooth loss.  Consider a custom athletic mouthguard for school sports in your school colors!

Smile Smart Tip # 5

Brush and floss for at least 2 minutes twice a day to maintain good oral hygiene between dental visits.  Choose a soft bristled toothbrush making circular motions at a 45 degree angle and waxed floss or flosser picks to get the areas in between teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach.

Costa Mesa Dentist – Celebrating 3 Years!

July 5, 2017

On behalf of all of the Advanced Dental Care staff and Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson, Costa Mesa Dentist, we want to send the biggest thank you and gratitude to our loyal and amazing patients!  In the last three years, our dental practice has grown so much.  It has been an amazing journey thus far.  Our dental team has tripled in size and are seeing more patients than ever.  We owe it to our patients for being so appreciative and sharing their experiences at our office with their friends, family, co-workers and on social media!  We also believe this is a reflection of the endless hours we dedicate to ensuring our staff, skills, and technology are always top-notch!

When we started Advanced Dental Care in July 2014, we were new to the Costa Mesa community.  We didn’t know many people and we didn’t know how the patients would feel about seeing a new dentist.  Thankfully, not only did the patients completely embrace the change, they were thrilled with the change!  And the community embraced us too.  We are so very thankful for the continued support and warm welcomes from the community.

30 Days of Giveaways!

Now for the fun part.. Instead of our usual anniversary party, this year we’ve decided to celebrate ALL MONTH LONG!  That’s right, we will be celebrating our success, our staff, and our patients throughout the entire month of July.  Check out some of the amazing pics below from our three years in business and then check out our 30 Days of Giveaways! blog for information on how to celebrate with us!

Help! I have a Broken Tooth. Do I need Emergency Dental Care?

June 16, 2017

chipped tooth - cracked tooth - broken tooth - front tooth - best dentist costa mesa - emergency dentist - ppo dentist - no insurance dentist - saturday dentistEmergency Dental Care in Costa Mesa

Have a broken tooth?  Often times patients do not come to see their dentist unless a dental condition has become urgent and painful!  By the time a patient is experiencing acute, sharp, throbbing pain, the condition is not so cute.  Whether you just broke a tooth or have had a broken tooth for some time, it is best to see your dentist ASAP!

How and why do teeth break?

Teeth can break for a variety of reasons, including physical injury, biting into a hard or tough piece of food, decay that weakens the tooth enamel.  They can chip, crack, or fracture, damaging one or more layers of the tooth, and break above, at, or below the gum line.  Fractures of the tooth root, which are not visible to the eye, are also serious and consequently damage the blood vessels and nerves that supply the tooth.  Lastly, your tooth can become loosened or displaced from their socket.

Can a broken tooth be saved?

Depending on the severity of damage to the tooth and its root and how fast you act, your dentist has more opportunities to save your tooth!  Surface chips and cracks can most often be fixed with fillings or bonding.  Cracks or fractures that extend beyond the gum line, can be more difficult to repair, requiring a root canal and/or dental crown.

Infections in decayed or broken teeth can spread to the surrounding gum tissue, jaw bone, and can even become systemic.  Your dentist can treat the infection and may be able to repair the tooth, however, some infected teeth cannot be saved.  Teeth that have lost blood and nerve supply, necrosis, are usually recommended to remove.

If the tooth cannot be saved, don’t worry!  There are many tooth replacement options available to restore your smile to its full function and aesthetic.  At Advanced Dental Care in Costa Mesa, we offer personalized treatment to your condition and budget, including dental implants, several types of dental bridges, crowns, and dentures.

When to see your dentist?

Physical trauma or injury to your face or head or excessive bleeding, swelling, or pain are serious.  Please get emergency care immediately!  When you take swift action, injuries resulting from trauma have the best chance for recovery.  In addition, swelling, extreme pain, redness, and heat, can all be signs of a serious infection.

A tooth with a large chip, crack, or break at or near the gum line, may not bleed or swell, but be very painful.  The biggest risks associated with large or deep cracks/chips is damage to the nerve and blood supply and infection.  Call your dentist as soon as possible to get in for emergency dental care!

You may not notice when you have small chips or fractures, while other chips might be sharp or jagged.  Sharp or jagged chips cause irritation to your tongue and cheeks.  You should still see your dentist as soon as possible, even if you are not currently experiencing pain.  Small cracks and chips can expose the inner layers of your teeth leaving them susceptible to decay, infection, and further breakage.

Call now for your free consultation with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson at our Costa Mesa dentist office. We are available by phone at (714) 424-9099 anytime or visit us online at www.mycostamesadentist.com.  In addition, we are in network with all PPO dental insurances!  No dental insurance? No problem!  We also offer our own plan with no maximum or deductibles, and most importantly, you can sign up today!.

Why do I need a crown after a root canal?

March 21, 2017

Dental Crown after Root Canal

By Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson

Why may a dental crown be needed after a root canal?  Well let’s start by talking about root canals.  A root canal may be necessary when your tooth decay has reached the inner pulp or root of your tooth.  The infection may be extremely painful or you may not even know the decay has spread to the root.  Removing the tooth decay and infection is essential to preventing the spread of the infection to surrounding gum and bone tissue.

When a root canal is necessary, your dentist will use a drill or a laser to take out the decayed enamel, dentin, and the pulp to ensure all of the infected tooth is gone.  Depending on how much of the natural tooth structure must be removed, and other factors, will often determine whether a dental crown is needed after a root canal.  Generally, when large decay is present, the tooth has been significantly weakened, and when the tooth regularly experiences a lot of pressure (think back molar tooth), a dental crown may be appropriate to restore function.
