3 Additional Cavity Fighters For Sparta Kids

Rockford MI Family Dentistry

Most Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Belmont, Walker, Sparta and Rockford, MI parents know children’s oral health basics: brush regularly, reduce sugar intake, limit snacking, and get adequate amounts of calcium and Vitamin D. Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry recommends three additional tools for preventing cavities in toddlers and children.

Sealants
Fluoride supplements
Oral rinses

Resin dental sealants are applied to natural unrestored teeth. The material bonds to the chewing surfaces of the tooth, protecting the pits and fissures from decay.

Fluoride supplements help strengthen still-forming teeth prior to eruption. You can get a prescription from your pediatrician or call Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull.  There is one caveat, however: if you have fluoridated water, you may need to have your water tested to see what strength of fluoride is recommended for your family.

If your child is taking fluoride supplements, is an oral rinse redundant? Actually, no. Fluoride supplements help strengthen teeth that are still forming, but a fluoride rinse helps teeth that have already come in. Oral rinses containing fluoride can be purchased at any Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Belmont, Walker, Sparta or Rockford, MI grocery store.  Make sure you buy one specifically formulated for children. Products labeled as a mouthwash are usually intended only for breath-freshening and may not contain fluoride.

We recommend children use an oral rinse after they brush and floss at night. They are most effective when they are the last substance on teeth before kids go to bed.

At Stewart and Hull Aesthetic and General Dentistry, we believe that with proper preventative dentistry, children can enjoy healthy teeth for life

Make Your Teeth Happy In Comstock Park

Make Your Teeth Happy With Comstock Park Family Dentistry

Michigan is known for its beautiful smiles, and our local Grand Rapids community is no exception. Keeping your mouth healthy is an important factor in maintaining your beautiful smile. One of the benefits of regularly visiting the office of Dr. Bruce Stewart and Dr. Eric Hull and having a thorough teeth cleaning is a review of your brushing habits.

At Stewart & Hull we see patients from Belmont, Comstock Park, Grand Rapids, Sparta, Walker and Rockford, MI. Our dental hygienist will help you keep your mouth healthy by assessing the condition of your teeth and gums, and recommending improvements to your homecare habits.

Thoroughly brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day at home will help remove plaque (a sticky deposit that gets left on teeth in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and aids in tooth decay). Thus, resulting in a cleaner, healthier mouth. A regular visit with our hygienist will help you stay on top of problems that can go unseen. These regular visits to our office can potentially prevent the undetected development of problems that can occur from neglecting to clean your teeth.

Call Stewart & Hull in Comstock Park Michigan to make an appointment. You can reach us right now at 616-827-7019.

Sealants…A Proven Way to Fight Decay

Comstock Park Family Dentist

Sealants are a thin coat of clear resin that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth. Teeth with deep pits and grooves can easily trap bacteria that can later lead to decay.  Sealants fill in the pits and grooves to create a smooth surface.  Dr. Stewart and Dr. Hull recommend sealants on permanent, unrestored, back teeth for patients of all ages; from young children to mature adults.  Sealants are usually placed on the molars of our pediatric patients but in some cases anterior (front) teeth can benefit from sealants.

Dental sealants protect teeth that have no decay (primary prevention) and also prevent further decay progression in teeth that show very early signs of disease (secondary prevention).

At Stewart & Hull, we take special care of our Comstock Park, Walker, Grand Rapids and Rockford, MI patients. We want each child’s dental visit to be pleasant and painless so they will never develop a fear of the dentist. We advise parents on the specific dental issues associated with each stage of childhood. Ask us about fluoride, sports mouthguards, and orthodontic treatment. Call our office at 616-827-7019 to schedule a pediatric dental exam.

We provide comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dentistry for Comstock Park people of all ages. You can learn more about our practice at https://www.greatmismiles.com/meet-dr-bruce-stewart.


Smokeless Is Not Harmless For Comstock Park Tobacco Chewers

Comstock Park, Tobacco Chewing Can Cause Gum Disease And CancerToday’s topic is ‘The Dangers of Smokeless Tobacco’

Cigarette sales at most Comstock Park stores have decreased in the past decade, but some Comstock Park tobacco consumers have switched to smokeless products. This can cause irritation, gum disease, and in many cases, chronic use will lead to oral cancer.

There is a common misconception in the Rockford MI area (especially among teens) that smokeless tobacco is harmless. This is absolutely not true. Regardless of the specific type: spit tobacco, snuff, chew, or pinch; this form of tobacco is as deadly as conventional cigarettes.

At Stewart & Hull, we encounter serious consequences of smokeless tobacco use because many occur in the mouth. Oral cancer, mouth lesions, gum disease and tooth decay are the most common dental problems caused by smokeless tobacco in Michigan.

 

Keeping a pinch between your cheek and gum all day is worse than keeping a sucker in your mouth all day. The tobacco contains almost as much sugar as the candy but delivers harmful chemicals as an added bonus. The dangers are two-fold: the tobacco erodes the teeth and causes the gums to pull away from teeth.

Precancerous Mouth Lesion Screening in Michigan: Mouth Lesions are painful sores that could eventually become cancer. If smokeless tobacco use is stopped, the lesions often disappear within a year for Michigan cosmetic dental patients.

Oral Cancer in Comstock Park: Smokeless tobacco use in the Comstock Park and Rockford increases the risk for several types of life-threatening cancers including those of the mouth, gums, lips, tongue, and throat.

Oral cancers can be as deadly as lung cancer and usually require surgery. If the Michigan patient is fortunate and the cancer is successfully removed with surgery, the collateral damage to the face, neck, or jaw is often significant.

 

At Stewart & Hull in Comstock Park, we perform oral cancer screenings and mouth lesion examinations. To schedule an appointment, call 616-827-7019.

If you want to quit using smokeless tobacco products, we recommend that you consult Dr. Stewart & Dr. Hull at Stewart & Hull, your Comstock Park primary care dentist, or your Comstock Park pharmacist.

Dental Sealants

Family Dentistry in Comstock Park

Dental sealants are a thin coat of clear resin that is applied to the biting surfaces of teeth, usually the rear molars. The back teeth are more prone to cavities because it is difficult to reach them with a tooth brush and the surfaces contain pits and grooves that easily trap bacteria. It is hard for many adults to clean their back molars and almost impossible for our young Rockford MI children.

Dental sealants fill in the pits and grooves on the rear molars to create a smooth surface. Dentists practicing family dentistry in Rockford MI most often recommend sealants for children’s permanent back teeth, though sometimes they are used for adults, too.

Comstock Park parents may not realize how quickly a cavity can form in a young child’s mouth. Many Comstock Park area kids that we see develop cavities even before they start kindergarten! It is vital that our local parents start regular dental visits early.

Dental sealants protect teeth that have no decay (primary prevention) and also prevent further decay progression in teeth that show very early signs of disease (secondary prevention).

At Stewart & Hull, we take special care of our Comstock Park pediatric dental clients. We want each child’s dental visits to be pleasant and painless so they will never develop a fear of the dentist. We advise parents on the specific dental issues associated with each stage of childhood. Ask us about fluoride, sports mouthguards, and orthodontic treatment.

At Stewart & Hull., we don’t believe that childhood cavities are unavoidable. Call our Comstock Park office at 616-827-7019 to schedule a pediatric dental hygiene exam.

We provide comprehensive restorative and cosmetic dentistry for Rockford MI people of all ages. Our office is located at 769 York Creek Dr NW in Comstock Park. You can learn more about our practice at https://www.greatmismiles.com.

Cosmetic Dental Solutions in Comstock Park

Cosmetic Dental Solutions in Comstock Park Comstock Park cosmetic dentists use dental crowns to solve a number of dental dilemmas. A dental crown is a strong, natural-looking permanent tooth restoration that covers the top of the damaged tooth.

Grand Rapids area family dentistry practices recommend crowns to remedy the following problems:

  • A broken tooth with decay
  • An ill-fitting existing crown
  • A decayed tooth that has lost significant tooth structure
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that causes a bite problem

Before your Grand Rapids area dentist can attach the crown to your tooth, we must prepare the tooth. Family dentists often apply a local anesthetic so you won’t feel pain during the prepping. Dr. Bruce Stewart or Dr. Eric Hull will remove decay, if any, and shape the tooth to receive the crown. Then a mold is taken of the prepped tooth and surrounding teeth.

A temporary crown is then placed on the tooth to protect it until you return to your cosmetic dentistry office to receive the permanent restoration. The patient needs to be careful while wearing the temporary crown. Vigorous brushing or flossing can displace the crown or damage the exposed soft tissue. The Grand Rapids dental crown patient should also refrain from eating extremely hard foods like nuts or sticky candy.

The mold of your teeth is sent to a local dental lab where your crown is built. Dental crowns are fabricated in three varieties: tooth colored crowns made of resin or porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and solid metal crowns. Each type has its pros and cons. Your Comstock Park cosmetic dentists at Stewart & Hull will choose the best crown material for your particular tooth.

What if you need a permanent dental restoration for both the top and root of your tooth? Dental implants are your answer.
