When people talk of oral health, they are, in fact, talking about gums and teeth.
Meanwhile, saliva, the watery substance that keeps your mouth moist, cool, and comfortable, is often and rather wrongly placed on the sidelines.
A healthy body continuously makes saliva throughout the day. Chewing is what mainly stimulates saliva production. Therefore, the more you chew, the more amounts of saliva is produced. The production of saliva mainly happens in the salivary glands in your cheek, which sits at the bottom of the mouth, near the bone of your jaw.
Apart from preserving the necessary moist environment of the mouth, saliva plays many essential roles in many fundamental oral processes. Among the most fundamentally prominent of which includes:
- promoting initial chemical digestion of food
- cleaning food debris and bacteria in the mouth
- aiding in basic oral activities like tasting, chewing, and swallowing
- actively fighting mouth-dwelling bacteria and pathogenic microorganisms
- actively preventing tooth decay and gum disease Details

While this is not necessarily inaccurate, there are, in fact, many different oral health factor that result in bad breath, otherwise known as halitosis.
In some cases, getting rid of mouth odors could require popping a mint candy. For people who enjoy foods with pungent flavors, getting rid of bad breath could be as simply mean brushing, flossing, and rinsing.
There are, however, chronic cases of bad breath – one that does not go away despite the mints and thorough mouth cleaning.
Among the most common culprits of chronic halitosis is, in fact, gum odor.
Gum odor is generally a result of two different things altogether. These being trapped food particles and gum disease. Often, unpleasant mouth odors come from bacterial waste products, like sulfur, which tend to give off the smell of a rotten egg.
Mouth-dwelling, bad breath-causing bacteria naturally thrive just below the gum line and, most especially, in the dental pockets created by loose teeth. Left untreated, this condition ultimately progresses to periodontal disease, a progressive infection of the gums that lead to persistent inflammation, tissue destruction, and even bone loss

What Is Root Canal Treatment?
Otherwise known as endodontic therapy, root canal treatment is the surgical removal of an infected pulp tissue. To better understand root canal treatment, it is essential that we know what the dental pulp is.
The dental pulp sits deep inside your tooth, through the while enamel and the hard shell dentin. It is essentially the sensory part of the tooth consisting of nerves, blood vessels, and dental tissues. This means that, once infected, the dental pulp receives and sends pain signals to the brain and the rest of the body. This is where root canal treatment becomes necessary.
What Happens During Root Canal Treatment
Once confirmed that root canal treatment is the necessary course of treatment for your condition, your dentist Gold Coast, using dental anesthetics and precision equipment will proceed to remove the infected dental pulp. After the dental pulp has been successfully removed, your dentist will clean and disinfect the inside of your tooth.

Depending on the condition of your tooth, your dentist might cap your newly restored tooth with prosthetic porcelain crown for added protection.

Unlike much more traditional dentures, which mostly consist of crown replacements, dental implants are designed to replace both the aesthetic and functional dimensions of natural crowns and tooth roots.
Resembling a small screw, dental implants are anchored in your jaw and are fitted with an overlying crown and denture.
The Aesthetic Function Of Your Teeth
Anatomically speaking, the function of a healthy set of teeth goes beyond that of chewing, speaking, and smiling. A healthy set of teeth has an aesthetic function that many people aren’t aware of.
Simply put, your teeth provide the necessary structural framework that supports the soft tissues of both your lips and cheek.
When you lose a tooth, you alter and gradually ruin this framework. Therefore, the more teeth you lose, the more it is likely for your cheeks and lips to collapse inwards
When you lose a tooth, you don’t only lose the visible crown that completes your smile. When you lose a tooth, you naturally lose a tooth root, which is crucial in stimulating jawbone activity. This is where dental implants excel as tooth replacements over the more traditional dentures.Details
