A large factor in the risk for cavities is the foods and drinks we consume regularly. Foods and beverages can be categorized into being either good or bad for the teeth, and unfortunately, more foods are bad for the teeth than foods that are good for the teeth. This categorization is not about the nutritional value of foods concerning the body’s overall health. The most vital factor is whether the food/drink contains sugars or acids that are damaging to tooth surfaces. Let’s explore the relationship of certain types of foods and beverages on the health of the teeth.

Why would my child’s tooth need a crown?
There are several reasons why your dentist might recommend placing a crown on your child’s tooth. The main reason is if the cavity on the tooth is large. Baby teeth are not just smaller versions of adult teeth. They have thinner layers of enamel, the protective outer layer. A thinner layer means that a cavity can grow and affect the nerve of the tooth faster than it could in an adult tooth. Once a cavity gets close to the nerve, it will likely need nerve treatment, often called a “baby root canal” this is not as invasive as an adult root canal, but it does leave the tooth weaker and more prone to breakage if not protected. Cavities often occur on more than one surface of a tooth, so instead of placing multiple fillings on one tiny tooth, a crown would cover all of the surfaces. The crown will protect the tooth from future decay and breakage.

CAUSES OF A SUNKEN FACE
One common cause of a sunken face is getting older or ageing. One reason that the face takes on a sunken look is due to loss of bone in the mouth. When the bone in the jaw is lost or when it shrinks, it creates a sunken look. Keeping that in mind, it is easy to understand how one or more missing teeth will also produce the same results. In health, the skin on your face rests over the teeth and gums. However, when teeth are missing in the mouth, the skin sinks.
