The Los Angeles area clinic comments on a recent article that future advances may make dental care easier and more effective, but individuals need to use what's available now to ensure that their teeth last long enough to benefit from those advances.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An August 28 article in HuffPost

Canada reports on ferumoxytol, a molecule that has shown positive results in early tests. The substance apparently releases a type of nanoparticle that leads to the production of free radicals that fight tooth-decay bacteria, while also preventing the erosion of tooth enamel. The article says that the results indicate that the substances could someday reduce damage to teeth by half. Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center says that major advances in preventive care are likely but, in the meantime, it's necessary for all of us to take advantage of the excellent tooth-decay fighting technology that's already available.

The clinic notes that thorough twice daily brushings with fluoride toothpastes and using dental floss, combined with regular visits to dental professionals, should be able to prevent most of the kind of serious issues that require intensive care and can lead to tooth loss. The clinic adds that individuals should resist the temptation to rely on home care and skip teeth cleanings and exams because, even with truly outstanding oral hygiene, bacteria can accumulate and begin to cause cavities as well as gingivitis, aka gum disease. Prevention is the key says the clinic and the sooner issues are addressed the less serious they are likely to become.

On the other hand, the clinic notes that, while prevention is always the best and easiest route, it's never too late for active measures to restore the health of teeth and gums. Scaling and planing, aka deep cleaning, can deal with relatively minor periodontal issues before they begin to seriously undermine the gums and contribute to painful toothaches and the potential loss of teeth. Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center adds that, even after one or more teeth have been compromised enough to require extraction, dental implants can make fine replacements. The clinic notes that implants are superior to traditional dentures and bridgework for more than the obvious benefits in terms of convenience as well as appearance, though those are substantial. Implants are currently the only replacement for lost teeth that can effectively thwart the bone loss which typically accompanies the loss of teeth.

All in all, Dr. Peiman Soleymani and his team at Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center strongly suggest that readers take the time to care for their teeth, but when problems arrive, periodontal care and implants really can restore a smile.
