What Is The Most Used Joint In The Body And How Can It Affect Me?

If you are experiencing this discomfort, you might be suffering from TMD.

Why do we have wisdom teeth Dental Solutions of Mississippi dentist in Canton MS Dr. Ruth Roach Morgan Dr. Jessica Morgan

Why Do We Have Wisdom Teeth?

We are often asked why we have wisdom teeth if they often need to be removed? The third molars, affectionately called “wisdom teeth”, are the last set of teeth to grow. They were given that name based on the phrase “with age comes wisdom”, since they erupt around 17 and 21 years old. We actually don’t really need this third set of teeth anymore, which is why they cause issues and need to be removed. Why do we have them in the first place?

Avoid Enamel Erosion

Did you know that enamel is the hardest substance in your body? In fact, it is actually harder than steel, but can break much more easily. It is a translucent shell on the outside of your teeth that helps protect teeth from daily wear and tear, but it can still be prone to chips and cracks. Unfortunately, enamel has no living cells and cannot be replaced after it is damaged, which is why it’s important to protect teeth from enamel erosion.

How To Care For Your Oral Appliance

If you or your family member are being treated with orthodontics or for temporomandibular disorder (TMD), we may have suggested the use of an oral appliance as part of your treatment. Once braces come off, a retainer is usually worn to keep the new position of teeth in place. For some TMD patients, we recommend the use of a night guard to relieve symptoms. For some of our younger patients who play sports, they might even be wearing a mouth guard to protect their teeth during games. Oral appliances such as these play an important part in maintaining and protecting oral health. Here’s how you can care for them:
