Did you know that the average temperature for Denver, at this point in the season, is 79 degrees? While still hot, 79 seems almost balmy in comparison to the streak of 90+ degree days that Denver has recently experienced. And there is no indication that this trend is going to stop, meaning big business for the Mile High City’s many ice cream shops.

Denver boasts a number of unique ice cream parlors, many with interesting and unusual offerings alongside classics like chocolate and vanilla. These treats beckon on hot days - to adults and children alike - with the promise of something cold and satisfying. But what about the health of your teeth? Should worry about tooth decay keep you from enjoying ice cream this summer?

Denver Oral Health Questions | Is Ice Cream Safe?

Summer Treats. Summer Teeth.

How bad is ice cream for oral health? No worse than any other sugary treat - and much less than some.

The truth is, people with healthy teeth and gums should be able to enjoy ice cream in the same way they enjoy all other sweets: in moderation. Ice cream is soft and some of the sugar it contains can be rinsed off of the teeth by drinking water while and after consuming it. However, it is still best to brush your teeth within an hour of eating anything sugary. It is, in fact, best to brush your teeth after every meal and snack - ice cream or no.

While ice cream itself is not a huge oral health concern, many of the add-ons people put in and on this summertime treat are. Sticky and chewy foods and harder candy (or candies that harden when frozen) pose larger risks for tooth decay and may even damage restorations such as dental crowns. To reduce these risks, forego the gummy bears, candy-coated chocolates, English toffee, and other hard, sticky, or chewy additions and enjoy the treat in its simpler form.

Help! I’ve Damaged My Teeth!

Ice cream on its own should pose little to no risk for dental trauma. Sticky and hard candy, on the other hand, often do. If, while eating something sticky or frozen, you damage a veneer, crown, or other restoration, we can help. We offer emergency dental services for existing patients undergoing trauma as well as swift scheduling for new patients in need or dental care.

With advanced CEREC technology, we are able to produce same day dental crowns that look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, in addition to many other tooth-colored restorations. If you have damaged your teeth or an existing restoration, we welcome an opportunity to meet with you, discuss our many treatment options, and to help you find the best one for your needs.

If you live in the Metro Denver area and are in need of an experienced, caring, and effective dentist, please call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656 today. Located in Cherry Hills, we welcome patients from all surrounding communities.

Oral Health and Systemic Health | Men's Health Month | Cherry Creek, COJune is Men’s Health Month and a great time to schedule a routine cleaning and examination with one of our experienced Denver dentists. Oral health is often overlooked in discussions about systemic health - as if the two things were somehow separate. But the truth is, oral health and systemic health are intricately linked, with each impacting the other in surprising ways.

 

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease, is more prevalent in men than in women. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, men account for 56.4% of gum disease cases. For many men, this presents as gingivitis, a mild form of gum disease that is marked by red or swollen gum tissue that bleeds easily when brushed or scraped.

Gingivitis is easy to treat. In fact, many cases of this common oral health problem can be treated with a deep cleaning and more attention paid to your at-home routine. To fully treat gingivitis and prevent its recurrence, you must be committed to brushing your teeth at least twice a day, flossing at least once, and visiting our office every six months for professional cleanings. The addition of an antibacterial mouthwash may also be recommended, but this is different for each patient and, because mouthwash can also be harmful to oral health, should only be used when directed.

When left untreated, gingivitis will advance to periodontitis - and at this point, gum disease will begin posing serious health risks as well. Symptoms of periodontitis include:​

  • Chronic bad breath​
  • Persistent bad taste in the mouth​
  • Loose or shifting teeth​
  • Pus in between the teeth​
  • Gums pulling away from the roots of teeth​
  • Tooth loss

Oral health issues linked to periodontitis include jaw necrosis (bone death) which can result in a loss of bone in and around the jaw. This will result in facial collapse and shrinkage as skin adjusts to a loss of structural volume. Once lost, bone grafting will be necessary to rebuild those portions of the jaw.

Systemic Health and Gum Disease

In addition to jaw shrinkage and collapse, periodontitis is linked to a number of serious and potentially fatal systemic disorders and disease. Among these are:​​

  • Heart attack and stroke​​
  • Hypertension​
  • Kidney and liver failure​
  • Esophageal cancer​
  • Pancreatic cancer​
  • Dementia and Alzheimers

When a bacterial infection from the gums enters the bloodstream, bacteria can travel throughout the body with little to no impediment. This allows these bacteria to infect other parts of the body, increasing risks for a number of long-term health issues. Smokers and men who use alcohol excessively are at heightened risk, but anyone can develop gum disease if his oral hygiene routine is lacking.

This Men’s Health Month, detecting and treating gum disease may prove as important for your longevity as adopting a healthier diet and more progressive exercise routine. When committing to better health, truly commit. Take time this month to consider how all of your body’s systems work symbiotically - and take steps to protect each of these as they perform their individual and collective functions.

To schedule a cleaning and examination at DeWitt Dental Associates, please call 303-321-5656 and schedule your consultation today. Located in Cherry Creek, we serve men and women living throughout the Metro Denver area.

There are an overwhelming number of tooth whitening products available through retail stores, some of which don’t work well at all. There are myriad claims made about foods that whiten teeth, or oil pulling for tooth whitening, or using activated charcoal to brighten your smile, but these treatments range from mildly effective to useless and, in the case of charcoal, downright dangerous. So how can you determine which teeth whitening option is best for you?

The short quiz below can help you determine which type of staining you have and which options for tooth whitening may be best for your needs. If, after taking the quiz, you have questions for our cosmetic dentists, call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656 to schedule your consultation today.

In most cases, sedation dentistry refers to one of two things:

  • Oral sedation, which is accomplished with prescription medication
  • Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas”

These types of dental sedation work quite well for many patients, enabling those who struggle with issues such as dental phobia, sensitive teeth, or TMJ to enjoy a pain and stress-free experience. However, some patients cannot find comfort while still conscious regardless of the typical efficacy of medications administered. For these patients, deeper IV sedation may be the best solution.

Benefits of IV Sedation

IV Sedation Denver | Sedation Dentist Cherry CreekIV sedation is typically administered in mild to medium doses. These doses allow for deep relaxation without putting the patient to sleep. Even though awake, this level of sedation allows for little if any memory of the procedure.

For particularly nervous, fearful, or sensitive patients, we may recommend deeper IV sedation. With this option, the patient is placed in a  sleep-like state for the entirety of the procedure. While under this level of IV sedation, there is no awareness of the sights, sounds, smells, or actions taking place, and no memories of the procedure upon waking.

During your initial consultation at our Cherry Creek office, we will listen to your concerns, review your medical history, and help you choose the type of dental sedation best suited to meet your needs.

IV Sedation Safety Concerns

Injury from IV sedation is extremely rare. Leading risks include respiratory depression, which is typically a result of over-sedation, and hematoma formation at the site of needle placement. Studies into risks associated with IV sedation in dentistry have found that at-risk groups tend to be those with existing health conditions. We will carefully review your medical history before recommending IV sedation to help protect you against these risks.

At DeWitt Dental Associates, deep IV sedation is administered by a nurse anesthetist to help ensure patient safety. Vitals are constantly monitored while under sedation as well, enabling us to react appropriately should issues arise.

DeWitt Dental Associates is State-Certified to provide IV dental sedation.

What’s Best for You

We offer a range of sedation dentistry options to meet the needs of each patient. Our IV sedation certification enables us to offer deeper sedation than most Denver-area dental offices,  though we continue to offer milder nitrous oxide and conscious oral sedation options as well. It is our goal to meet the exact needs of each patient. We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your needs and to help you determine if sedation dentistry is the best fit.

To schedule your consultation at our Cherry Creek office, please call 303-321-5656 today. DeWitt Dental Associates serves the Metro Denver area and all surrounding communities.

Treating Black Hairy Tongue | Cherry Creek Cosmetic DentistsBlack hairy tongue. The name alone is fairly awful, and the condition it describes, at least visually, lives up to the name. But what, exactly, is black hairy tongue?

Projecting from the tip, sides, and top of your tongue are lingual papillae. These papillae have taste buds at their tip, enabling you to experience all five known tastes: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and umami. Typically flesh-colored, lingual papillae are essentially unnoticeable under nearly all circumstances.

Just like all cells in your body, papillae are designed to grow, serve their function, and die off to allow new growth. Lingual papillae shed once their purpose has been served but, just like cells elsewhere in the body, they do not always do what they're supposed to do. When lingual papillae continue to grow, they can reach 15x their normal size, producing the look of hair on the tongue.

It is the papillae that comprise the “hairy” part of black hairy tongue. But what makes them change color?

  • Food
  • Drinks
  • Bacteria
  • Yeast

Black hairy tongue is somewhat of a misnomer: sometimes the color changes caused by foods and beverages, bacterial growth and yeast overpopulation are more greenish or yellow in color. Other colors, such as brown, red, and even purple are not impossible, but any lasting change in the color and texture of the papillae will fall under the same black hairy tongue umbrella.

Highly visible, black hairy tongue can result in issues with self-esteem and confidence. And it can last for months or even years. Accompanying the unsettling appearance of a discolored tongue, this condition may also result in:

  • Chronic bad breath
  • Glossopyrosis (burning sensation)
  • Gagging
  • A metallic taste in the mouth
  • Frequent nausea
  • A tickling sensation in the mouth

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or if your tongue has taken on a new and unsettling color, please call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656 to schedule a consultation today. Located in Cherry Creek, we serve all surrounding Metro Denver communities.

How is Black Hairy Tongue Treated?

Black hairy tongue is almost entirely caused by lifestyle choices. While more common in men, some of the leading causes of this embarrassing condition are:

  • Tobacco use
  • A poor oral hygiene routine
  • Dehydration
  • Excessive consumption of coffee or tea
  • Excessive consumption of red wine
  • Using medications containing bismuth
  • Using a mouthwash containing peroxide, witch hazel, or menthol

Using a mouthwash with peroxide, witch hazel, menthol, or alcohol can also damage the bonding that holds restorations, such as one-day-dental-crowns, in place. If you are a fan of mouthwash, it is a good idea to discuss which type is best for your oral hygiene needs with one of the experienced dentists at our Cherry Creek office. We can help guide you to the mouthwash that will be the most beneficial and the least harmful to your overall oral health.

In addition to lifestyle choices, black hairy tongue may be linked to:

  • Being HIV positive
  • Antibiotic use
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chronic dry mouth

When black hairy tongue is linked to these issues, there may not be much that can be done about it. However, improving your daily oral care can go a long way in reducing the problem.

If you are suffering from black hairy tongue, we can help you determine some of the root causes during your next visit. Once identified, we can begin to work on changing behaviors that may be contributing to your condition.

Can Black Hairy Tongue be Treated?

The best defense against black hairy tongue is a healthy oral hygiene routine. This should include:

  • Brushing your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste after every meal and snack
  • Flossing both morning and night
  • Visiting our Cherry Creek office every six months for cleanings and examinations

Routine cleanings and examinations are one of the most effective ways to treat black hairy tongue as well. However, a thorough removal of yeast, bacteria, and discoloration may require more than at-home and professional cleanings.

You can help reduce your risks of developing black hairy tongue by drinking plenty of water throughout the day and by watching those habits that contribute to tongue discoloration.

If you smoke, quit immediately. There is literally nothing good that can come from that habit. Smoking increases risks for oral cancer 6x over. It also increases risks for gum disease, tooth decay, irreversible tooth discoloration, and persistently stubborn halitosis. April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and a great time to consider quitting this useless and dangerous habit.

If you drink a lot of dark beverages, consider reducing your intake or drinking through a straw. Drinking dark beverages through a straw can also help reduce the risks acidic beverages pose to tooth enamel and may be an effective measure against severe tooth staining.

There is some evidence that eating a diet high in roughage is good for scraping bacteria and stain from the papillae. A diet high in roughage is likely high in many other nutrients as well and will serve to strengthen the entire body including the teeth and gums if maintained.

A tongue scraper may also be a good idea if you struggle with black hairy tongue. This ancient Ayurvedic practice can gently remove debris from the top of the tongue and has even been shown to reduce volatile sulfur compounds in the mouth, which can help reduce halitosis. Tongue scrapers can be found in most grocery and drug stores.

If you have black hairy tongue, we can discuss all possible methods of dealing with it during your next visit to our office.

Is Black Hairy Tongue a Dental Emergency?

Because it poses no threat to the health of your teeth and gums, black hairy tongue is not a dental emergency, but it can be terribly embarrassing. We will make every effort to get you in as soon as possible when you call our office with this condition. If it is noticed during your routine examinations, we can discuss treatment during regularly scheduled visits as well.

To learn how our Cherry Creek dentists can help with black hairy tongue and other oral health and beauty concerns, call 303-321-5656 and schedule an appointment today.

Lumineers Cherry Creek | Dental Veneers DenverNearly all dental veneers are made out of porcelain, which is why they are often called “porcelain veneers.” Lumineers® are a type of porcelain veneer, but they are thinner than traditional options and may be more suitable for men and women who desire a prep-less solution for the cosmetic perfection of their smiles.

Porcelain veneers are placed over the front of teeth that have been impacted by:

  • Structural damages such as chips and cracks
  • Spacing issues including gaps and crowding
  • Crooked tooth presentation
  • Short or stumpy teeth
  • Discoloration below the enamel

Traditional porcelain veneers are thick enough to cover even the most pronounced of these cosmetic dental problems. Lumineers®, on the other hand, are best for mild to moderate cosmetic problems.

A Matter of Thickness

Lumineers® are thinner than traditional veneers, allowing them to be placed without any tooth preparation. Because other porcelain veneer options are thicker, some enamel must be removed from the teeth to allow their seamless placement into the smile. This makes some types of dental veneers irreversible.

For many people, Lumineers® are completely reversible and can be taken off of the teeth without additional services. However, they may not be thick enough to cover all cosmetic imperfections.

The cosmetic dentists at our Denver office understand that each patient has unique needs and are pleased to offer both traditional porcelain veneers and Lumineers®. The best way to learn which is right for your needs is through a one-on-one consultation and cosmetic dentistry evaluation.

Call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656 to schedule your consultation with Dr. DeWitt or Dr. Scott today. Located in Cherry Creek, our cosmetic dentists welcome patients from all Metro Denver communities.

Our teeth are remarkably strong. Under ideal circumstances, brushing and flossing as recommended and visiting the dentist every six months for cleanings would be all that was required to maintain a strong and healthy smile. But we don’t live under ideal circumstances – and many people will face tooth wear despite their best efforts.

One of the leading causes of enamel erosion is improper brushing technique. Aggressive brushing, using a medium-bristled toothbrush, and using abrasive toothpaste can all lead to premature tooth wear and increase risks for sensitivity, cavities, infection, and tooth loss. In these cases, switching up your routine can be incredibly beneficial. Choose a soft-bristled toothbrush, a nonabrasive toothpaste, and brush with less intensity to reduce the risks of accidentally damaging teeth while trying to care for them.

 Aggressive brushing is easy to stop. So too is the consumption of sodas, sports drinks, and fruit juices – all of which are directly linked to premature enamel erosion. Drinking these beverages through a straw can help minimize damage but avoiding them completely is always the safest bet.

Other causes of enamel erosion include:

  • Tooth grinding – also known as bruxism, tooth grinding can wear down enamel and make teeth easier to chip, crack, and brake
  • Bulimia – frequent vomiting will rapidly erode enamel, resulting in teeth that are brittle and almost translucent
  • Aging – as we age, even normal functions like biting and chewing can begin to wear teeth down

Of course, you can’t do anything about aging, but you can take steps to reduce your active contributions to rapid enamel erosion. Stress reduction is a great way to deal with bruxism. So too are the professional teeth grinding treatments offered by our Cherry Creek dentists.

Enamel Erosion Treatment | Denver | Bruxism | Bulimia | Cherry Creek

If you are struggling with an eating disorder, we cannot encourage you strongly enough to begin working immediately with both a physician and nutritionist. The Eating Disorder Foundation and EDCare (formerly the Eating Disorder Center of Denver) offer a number of resources for people struggling with bulimia, anorexia, and other eating disorders. These disorders are manageable and, with proper help, can be beaten. Once that’s happened, we can step in and restore those teeth that frequent vomiting and nutrient deficiencies have damaged.

Restoring Damaged Teeth

One of the easiest ways to address teeth that have become worn down is same day dental crowns. These are milled in our office and placed during a single office visit, allowing you to leave your appointment with a customized, natural-looking, and durable restoration designed to produce immediate benefits.

Dental bonding and porcelain veneers may also be considered to restore eroded teeth. These options will not cover a tooth in the same way as a CEREC dental crown, but they can strengthen and beautify teeth that have become worn down. The best way to learn which options are right for your smile is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. DeWitt or Dr. Scott.

To schedule your appointment with one of our Denver cosmetic dentists, please call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656 today. Located in Cherry Creek, we serve the entire Metro Denver area as well as those communities nestled in the Foothills and located along the I-25 Corridor.

The risk for Bruxism, more commonly known as tooth grinding, may increase under stressful situations. Unconscious tooth grinding can occur as a stress response, even while you sleep. Similarly, frustration, anger, and anxiety increase the likelihood of tooth grinding, particularly in people whose personality type is more energetic, frenetic, or competitive.

According to the Mayo Clinic, bruxism may be a result of:

  • Age – teeth grinding is more common in children
  • Heredity – bruxism may be more common among individuals with a family history of the condition
  • Caffeine and nicotine – stimulants, including those found in tea, coffee, soda, and tobacco, increase risks for tooth grinding
  • Alcohol and narcotics – alcohol and illicit drugs can increase risks for bruxism, particularly during sleep
  • Psychiatric medications – some antidepressants have been linked to bruxism

The Mayo Clinic also lists a host of medical conditions that may increase risks for grinding teeth. Among those are:

  • Parkinson's disease
  • ADHD
  • GERD
  • Dementia
  • Sleep apnea

If you notice a propensity towards jaw clenching or tooth grinding as you go through your day, you may be doing untold damage to your smile. The experienced dentists at our Cherry Creek office are specially equipped to treat bruxism and welcome an opportunity to meet with you, assess your condition, and help you find a solution that protects and restores comfort to your smile.

Denver Bruxism Treatment | DeWitt Dental Associates

What are the Symptoms of Bruxism?

In addition to a noticeable grinding of the teeth, individuals with bruxism may develop symptoms such as:

  • Irregular, uneven, and premature tooth wear
  • Tooth enamel that is chipped or cracked without trauma
  • Increased tooth pain and sensitivity
  • Loose or shifting teeth

Bruxism is also a key contributor to TMJ, a neuromuscular condition related to jaw alignment. As such, some of the symptoms of bruxism are similar to those of TMJ. These include:

  • Chronic headache
  • Jaw and generalized facial pain
  • Earache without the presence of infection
  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain

Bruxism may cause sleep disruptions, increasing daytime fatigue along with risks for the emotional and physical complications caused by exhaustion. For these reasons alone, seeking treatment for tooth grinding should be considered an important step in maintaining your overall health and wellness.

How is Bruxism Treated?

Bruxism often occurs during sleep, at times when you cannot exercise any control over your physical responses. This makes a nightguard one of the most effective treatments for tooth grinding. Our dentists customize these oral appliances for optimal comfort, allowing them to prevent tooth grinding without impacting sleep.

Treating damage that has already occurred may require a service such as dental bonding or crowns. We offer same day dental crowns, manufactured with advanced CEREC technology, enabling us to perform fast and appealing restorations for damaged teeth without sacrificing quality or durability.

Of course, your behavior also plays a role in your tooth grinding. Stress reduction and healthy living can play a significant role in your physical responses, including bruxism, and can be incredibly complementary to your tooth grinding treatment. During your initial consultation, we would be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail.

Do you struggle with teeth grinding? Call DeWitt Dental Associates at 303-321-5656 to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists today. Located in Cherry Creek, we provide bruxism treatment for men and women living throughout the Metro Denver area, including Aurora, Highlands Ranch, and Centennial.

CEREC crowns are the fastest dental crown option available today. But not just fast, CEREC technology allows dental crowns to be custom-fitted to your smile, producing restorations that are shaped, sized, and colored exactly like the teeth they are protecting, enabling these same-day crowns to look and feel just like your natural teeth.

If you are in need of a dental crown, give us a call at 303-321-5656 to schedule a consultation at our Cherry Creek office and learn how CEREC technology can restore your smile to perfect in just one office visit.

Denver One Day Crowns | CEREC Crowns in Cherry Creek

What is CEREC?

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a technology that allows customized dental restorations, such as crowns and inlays and onlays, to be designed, crafted, and produced during a single office visit. In the past, these types of restorations would require multiple visits for tooth preparation, modeling, and fitting of crowns. This is especially problematic for patients experiencing a dental emergency, but can be equally frustrating for patients who simply need a tooth-colored restoration to protect and strengthen their smiles.

With CEREC technology, our Cherry Creek dentists can produce realistic and durable restorations in a fraction of the time needed for those produced by a third-party. Cutting out the middle-man saves you time and money, but it also ensures that every aspect of your treatment is overseen by our trusted cosmetic dentists and experienced staff, providing you the comfort of knowing the dentist who designed your restoration will be involved in both its creation and placement as well.

The CEREC procedure contains five steps:

  1. Imaging – using an intraoral camera, one of our dentists will take detailed scans of your teeth and gums

  2. Modeling – images from the intraoral camera are sent to proprietary software that renders them into a 3D model

  3. Build-up – working with the 3D model, restorations are built-up virtually, to create a completely digital model for the milling machine

  4. Milling – using the built-up model to collect measurements, the milling machine will craft a precise restoration out of ceramic or zirconium

  5. Placement – after its creation, your crown or restoration will be placed and secured, enabling you to leave our office with a fully restored smile

The milling machine we use for same day crowns produces restorations that are visually complementary to adjacent teeth. The materials used for CEREC restorations are durable and reliable as well. Taken care of properly and your CEREC crowns should continue to offer strength and beauty for several years.

CEREC Restorations and Durability

In clinical studies, CEREC restorations have lived up to the same expectations as those milled off-site. In fact, a report from the Journal of the American Dental Association found that, for a large majority of patients, CEREC restorations have a life expectancy of 10 years or more. The main concern with both CEREC and traditional restorations is margin wear, but according to the JADA, this rarely leads to complete failure of the crown.

You can help keep your same day crowns strong and attractive by taking proper care of them. This includes:

  • Using a soft-bristled toothbrush. Medium bristled toothbrushes are not good under any circumstances. They can remove enamel and scratch all types of restorations. It is recommended that you use a soft-bristled toothbrush even if you do not have crowns

  • Using a non-abrasive toothpaste. Unless your teeth are stained, you probably don’t need to use an abrasive toothpaste. If you have restorations, you should avoid this type of toothpaste altogether

  • Not chewing ice or hard candy. Biting hard things can chip, crack, or break even the strongest of dental restorations

  • Avoiding mouthwash with alcohol. Some mouthwashes can weaken dental bonding. If you have restorations, it is best to simply use a non-astringent mouthwash

When you come to DeWitt Dental Associates for CEREC restorations or emergency dental services, we hope you will choose to make us your general dentists as well. In these cases, we can monitor the health and adhesion of your same day restorations during your routine visits for cleanings and examinations. If issues with your restorations are present during these visits, we can make adjustments or replacements to help ensure continuous strength and beauty for your smile.

More Than Crowns

The most popular CEREC restorations are dental crowns. These may be necessary when teeth are:

  • Chipped, cracked, or broken
  • Severely decayed
  • Infected

Same day dental crowns can also be used to create dental bridges or to restore dental implants for patients with missing teeth.

In addition to one-day dental crowns, CEREC technology can create:

  • Inlays and onlays to treat decay in between or overlaying cusps
  • Dental veneers for instant orthodontics and minor cosmetic restoration

While CEREC cannot create porcelain veneers, ceramic restorations are a possibility. However, our cosmetic dentists will likely recommend veneers created off-site for optimal strength and beauty.

At our Cherry Creek office, we use CEREC primarily for same-day dental crowns. However, if there is a quick restoration that could benefit your smile, we may recommend CEREC to help save you time and money. This can be discussed as appropriate during your normally scheduled visits to our office or provided as an option during an emergency dental visit.
