Advanced Dental Technology

The Laser Scanner Finds Ultrasmall Cavities Years Earlier
Dental Laser Scanner - Early Cavity DetectionHave you ever gone to the dentist to find you need a large filling and wondered how it got so large since your last visit only six months ago? It was actually there at your previous visit, but wasn’t detected on X-rays or with visual inspection.

Dr. Stutler is pleased to offer the laser scanner to identify cavities in the earliest stages, so they can be repaired with only a small, invisible filling. You won’t leave our office wondering if the beginning of a cavity has not been detected. We can take care of it before it becomes a bigger problem.

Gum Disease Treatment

Laser Treatament for Gum DiseaseHave You Been Told You Need Gum Surgery?
A laser can sometimes be used in place of surgery for treatment of gum disease. We use a laser for nonsurgical treatments of milder cases of periodontal disease. It is virtually painless, yet very safe, effective, and FDA approved. It is an easy process that eliminates the infection and can actually help to regenerate any bone loss from prolonged gum infection. 


  


Defeat Gum Disease Painlessly
Arestin Gum Disease TreatmentThere is a general misconception that the main cause of tooth loss is decay. But it is periodontal (gum) disease. Infected gums need a powerful weapon to fight bacteria. Dr. Stutler offers his patients an effective antibiotic called ARESTIN™. The tiny, invisible microspheres are applied directly to the site of infection and are time-released to continually work to kill the bacteria. Not only does it do the job, it is entirely painless.

Tooth Abscess Symptoms And Treatment

Symptoms And Treatment Of Tooth Abscess
If you have a toothache that goes beyond mild to moderate tooth pain and reaches a level of severe, throbbing pain, it could be a sign of a tooth abscess. A tooth abscess is a pus-filled lesion at the roots of a tooth, and is caused by an infection. The first sign is a throbbing toothache that won’t go away.

At first, the tooth will likely be sensitive to chewing and biting, as well as to heat and cold. You also may develop a fever, swollen lymph nodes in your jaw or neck, or swelling on your face.

If the abscess ruptures, you’ll know because of the nasty-tasting discharge in your mouth. Although the pain may recede if the abscess ruptures, you still need to be treated by a dentist in order to get rid of the infection, save the tooth and avoid complications. If the abscess doesn’t rupture, the infection can spread to other parts of the body. This is not a problem to ignore.

Treatment will likely include draining the abscess if it hasn’t ruptured. Your dentist also may recommend that you take over-the-counter pain relievers, rinse your mouth with warm salt water, and take antibiotics. More severe abscesses may require a root canal to remove infected tissue, and the worst cases require extraction of the tooth.

A tooth abscess can get its start as an untreated tooth cavity, so the best way to prevent an abscess is to prevent the cavity in the first place by following a consistent oral health routine of twice daily tooth brushing and daily flossing. Regular visits to your dentist are important too, especially if you’ve been treated for an abscess. This allows your dentist to confirm that the infection has cleared.

Causes and Treatment of Canker Sores

Cold Sores and Canker Sores Compared
It’s easy to confuse cold sores and canker sores.

Unlike a cold sore, a canker sore is not contagious, and it appears on the inside tissues of the mouth rather than the outer surface of the lip (which is where cold sores appear). A canker sore, also known as an apthous ulcer, looks like a small, round or oval lesion that has a white or yellowish center surrounded by red. They tend to be indented, like a crater, rather than raised, like a bump.

Canker sores most often appear on the inside of the cheeks and lips or at the base of the gum. Canker sores are not usually associated with bleeding gums, so if you are experiencing bleeding gums you should see your dentist to be evaluated for possible gum disease.

The majority of canker sores are mild. Mild canker sores are less than one-third of an inch long and usually heal on their own after a few weeks.

But major apthous ulcers, defined as larger than 10 mm in size, can take more than a month to heal and can cause scarring when they finally do heal. So it’s important to visit your doctor or dentist if you have a canker sore that has persisted for more than a few weeks. These large ulcers are most common in young adults after puberty, and they are more likely to recur than smaller sores. Older adults are more prone to herpetiform lesions, in which dozens of tiny lesions group together to form a large ulcer.

The exact cause of canker sores remains uncertain, but possible factors include an allergic reaction to bacteria in the mouth, a minor injury to the inside of the mouth due to dental work or poorly fitting dental appliances, food allergies or health problems, such as celiac disease and inflammatory bowel diseases.

Although most canker sores resolve on their own, if you have a large or stubborn lesion, your dentist may prescribe an antibiotic mouth rinse, topical paste to apply to the lesion, or a nutritional supplement if poor nutrition may be the cause of the canker sore.

What To Know About TMJ

What Are TMJ Diseases And Disorders? 
TMJ diseases and disorders are a group of conditions that cause pain in and around the jaw joint (called the Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ) and nearby muscles. Jaw problems affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow and even breathe.

What Are Symptoms Of TMJ?
Pain is the most common symptom of TMJ; however, some people have no pain but still have problems using their jaws. Specific symptoms include:
Face pain
Pain in the jaw joint and nearby areas, including the ear
Back pain
Inability to open the mouth comfortably
Clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint
Locking of the jaw when attempting to open the mouth
Headaches
A bite that is uncomfortable or feels “off”
Swelling on the side of the face, neck or shoulder

Other symptoms may include ringing in the ears, decreased hearing, dizziness and vision problems.

Keep in mind that occasional discomfort in the jaw joint or chewing muscles is common and is not a cause for concern. Many people with TMJ problems get better without treatment. Often the problem goes away on its own in several weeks to months.

Athletic Mouthguard Dentist

Worried about Knocking Out a Tooth?
Athletic Mouthguard Dentist Brownsburg INApproximately 5 million teeth are lost each year in the United States due to mouth injuries while playing sports. Over-the-counter, one-size mouthguards neither protect nor fit as well as they should – they can actually interfere with proper breathing during exertion.

The American Dental Association recommends the use of a custom-made mouthguard to prevent such trauma to the mouth and teeth for the following sports: water polo, weight lifting, wrestling, soccer, squash, surfing, volleyball, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, shotputting, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, martial arts, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, field hockey, football, gymnastics, acrobatics, basketball, and boxing.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 6

I have diabetes. Will I get gum disease
Diabetes is a chronic disease which affects your body's ability to process sugar. The resulting high blood sugar can cause problems with your eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and other parts of your body. Diabetes can also lower your resistance to infection and can slow the healing process. If you have diabetes, you are at greater risk of developing some oral health problems, including gum disease, so it's important that you are extra diligent with your oral health.

Oral Hygiene Care

The Importance of Hygiene VisitsRegular Dental Checkups Brownsburg IN
Having your teeth cleaned professionally is a very important preventive measure to keep all your teeth and gums healthy. When plaque hardens into tartar, regular brushing and flossing will not remove it. If it accumulates below the gumline, the development of a bacterial infection will risk tooth loss as well as serious health conditions like diabetes, stroke, and heart problems. Take our recommendation seriously that having your teeth cleaned on a regular basis will help to keep you healthy.

Not so! You don’t have to lose any of your teeth to gum disease if you practice good oral hygiene. That means brushing your teeth twice a day, cleaning between your teeth daily, eating a healthy diet, and scheduling regular dental visits. Even if you are diagnosed with gum disease, your dentist can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.

White Dental Fillings

No Mercury! No Metals! No Kidding!

White Dental Fillings - Tooth Colored Fillings Brownsburg INWe use only composite resin filling material for restorations. There are no metals in it, and it bonds very tightly to teeth. With the standard filling material, silver-mercury amalgam, the metal does not adhere well to teeth, which often allows decay to set in under the filling.

A composite resin filling can be made to match the shade of your tooth, making it aesthetically pleasing while also adding strength to the remaining tooth structure. Patients are pleased that these fillings are not visible, like the amalgam fillings are – a very noticeable dark plug in light-colored teeth.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 2

I don't have cavities so I can't have gum disease
Being cavity-free doesn’t ensure you are in the clear where gum disease is concerned. That’s because gum disease is painless and many people have no idea they have it. Gums that bleed easily or are red, swollen or tender is a sign of gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease and the only stage that is reversible. When caught early gingivitis can usually be eliminated by a professional cleaning at the dental office, followed by daily brushing and flossing.

Dental Care for Seniors

Senior Dental Care is DifferentDental Care for Seniors Brownsburg IN

Your teeth and gums change over time, just as your body does. We are attentive to the dental concerns of seniors. Plaque may build up on the surface of teeth and lead to decay. Fillings may weaken and need to be replaced before cavities set in under fillings and go unnoticed until roots are affected. We check for gum infection and always alert our patients to the signs of this problem – red, swollen, or bleeding gums when brushing or flossing, and loose teeth. After years of caffeine and tobacco consumption, teeth lose their brilliance and need professional whitening to regain their original luster. Some medications reduce the necessary flow of saliva through the mouth, and we have products that will alleviate this problem. We emphasize good nutrition, daily hygiene, and regular check-ups to help your smile stay healthy and keep your natural teeth for a lifetime.

Common Myths of Gum Disease # 1

Gum disease is not that common
On the contrary, gum disease is extremely common. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of adults age 30 and older suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease, an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Plaque that is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.

Kids Dentist

Children's Dentist Brownsburg IN
Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is Like Choosing Their Pediatrician

Children’s teeth are more susceptible to cavities than adults. They often do not brush properly, and they eat more often throughout the day. As a result, acids, bacteria, and plaque will build up. If teeth are already not as clean as they need to be, additional exposure to acids from eating (acid is formed in the mouth when eating) will speed up the rate of cavity development.

We encourage parents to oversee their children’s daily dental care until they can clean their teeth properly by themselves. We advise them how to make better nutritional choices to help care for their teeth and recommend an application of a fluoride varnish to mineralize their teeth to significantly reduce cavities.

What is Tooth Sensitivity?

What is Tooth Sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity is a common name for dentin hypersensitivity or root sensitivity. If hot, cold, sweet or very acidic foods and drinks, or breathing in cold air, makes your teeth or a tooth sensitive or painful then you have sensitive teeth.

Is Tooth Sensitivity Common? 
Tooth sensitivity is very common and it has been estimated that approximately half the population experiences tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity can come and go over time.

Why does Tooth Sensitivity (Dentin Hypersensitivity) Happen? 
Tooth sensitivity is usually caused by dentin on root areas exposed due to receded gums or periodontal disease. Receded gums are very common and up to four fifths of people have gum recession by the time they are 65.  

When the root of a tooth becomes exposed it does not have a layer of enamel like the crowns of your teeth. Instead the roots have a very soft covering called cementum, which once lost leaves the dentin of the root exposed.  Overzealous brushing or using a very abrasive toothpaste can also cause abrasion of the tooth's enamel surface and expose dentin. A very acidic diet - for example a diet with a lot of citrus food, pickles or sodapop - can cause tooth erosion and dissolve the tooth surface, exposing the dentin. Bulimia and GERD can also result in dental erosion and sensitivity due to acid in the mouth.

Treatment Options for Tooth Sensitivity

The best way to find out why a tooth is sensitive is to have dental professional examine you. They can look for the signs of dentin exposure, and run tests to determine what the true cause of the sensitivity is. Sometimes, the sensitivity is due to a cavity or gum disease ñ these can be treated to address the sensitivity. Other times, the cause of the sensitivity is because the enamel has been lost through abrasion or erosion, or the gums have receded, causing the roots to be exposed.

What Can Be Done?
If the sensitivity is due to a cavity, a restoration can be placed. If gum disease is the cause, the dental professional can perform a thorough cleaning of the area.

However, if the cause is from dentin being exposed, then there are a number of professional and at home treatments that can be used to reduce the sensitivity.

In Office Procedures:

  • Fluoride varnish can be applied to exposed areas, strengthening the enamel and dentin
  • Fluoride foam or gel can be placed into a mouth tray; you then sit with this in your mouth for 3-5 minutes, providing the teeth with a high concentration of fluoride to strengthen the areas
  • Bonding agent, the material used to stick tooth colored restorations to teeth, can be used to seal the dentin surface and provide a barrier to the stimuli that cause sensitivity

At Home:

  • Use a very soft bristle tooth brush, with low abrasive tooth paste
  • Brush correctly and do not over brush
  • Use a tooth paste specially formulated to soothe the nerve endings in the tooth
  • Use a high concentration fluoride toothpaste (given to you by the dental professional) to strengthen the tooth surface

There are a number of treatments available, and your dental professional can help you find those that will work best, depending on your situation. Always seek a dental professional's help - do not try to diagnose this problem yourself. It may be the sign of something more serious, and only a dental professional can tell you what it really is.

Good Food for Dental Health: Water

Water Rules
Water, especially fluoridated water, is the best beverage for maintaining your oral health. That's because fluoride helps to make teeth more resistant to the acid attacks that can cause cavities. As of 2012, nearly 75 percent of the U.S. population had access to fluoridated water, so drinking water from your own kitchen sink can help prevent dental problems.

Fruits and Veggies Pack an Extra Punch
Fruits and veggies are an important part of any balanced diet, and they are also good for your teeth. Since they are high in water and fiber, they help to balance the sugars they contain and help to clean your teeth. Chewing also helps to stimulate saliva production, which washes harmful acids and food particles away from your teeth.

Dental Sealants Dentist

Preventing Child Tooth Decay – the Easy Way!
Dental Sealants Prevent Dental Decay Brownsburg IN
Even the most meticulous brushing does not reach all the areas and contours of teeth. As bacteria and plaque build up, decay will occur. Even a small amount of decay will need a restoration with a filling, and for larger amounts of decay, a crown.

There is a technique that can help to reduce the development of cavities – an application of dental sealant. This treatment is easy and quick.

The teeth are first cleaned and sterilized. A thin coating of the sealant is brushed on the surface of each tooth. This is clear and invisible. A curing light is applied to bond the sealant to the teeth. The complete procedure takes only minutes but can help to preserve children’s and adolescent’s natural teeth for a lifetime. It is painless, as no shots or drilling are necessary.
