Foods That Make Your Breath Smell Better
Posted on 5/23/2018 by Alyce
Bad breath is one of the most common oral health issues and what concerns people the most because it can be offensive to others. In addition to regular checkups and good oral hygiene habits there are some foods that make your breath smell better. Ginger Ginger is one of the most popular foods due to its many medicinal properties and people have been using it for generations to cure stomach aches. Combining ginger with lemon juice and warm water to make a flavorful tea, helps keep offending smells at bay. Strawberries Eating strawberries can prevent bad breath by fighting bacteria and germs in your mouth because they're packed with Vitamin C. Vitamin C also contributes to the healing process. Apples The act of biting into an apple helps push bacteria that are responsible for tartar and plaque, away from your teeth and helps to keep your gums healthy. It is true that eating an apple a day can keep your dentist away. Green Tea Catechin is a powerful antioxidant, which is found in green tea. Antioxidants can help fight bacteria responsible for bad breath, so have some hot or cold green tea frequently. Water Keeping your mouth hydrated can go a long way in preventing bad odors. A dry mouth is an ideal place for bacteria to grow and cause damage to your teeth. There are specific mouthwashes that for people who suffer from dry mouth. Parsley This is one of the best foods you can eat to prevent bad breath. Parsley is rich in chlorophyll, which is a natural deodorizer and is very effective in preventing bad odors. In addition to brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing, you can eat some foods that make your breath smell better or mask certain odors.a...

Flossing Needs to Be Done Gently
Posted on 5/13/2018 by Alyce
Brushing your teeth only will not result in a healthy mouth. In order to get the most out of your oral home care you should also floss, however, flossing should be done gently to avoid damaging the tissue in your gums or irritating the area. If you see blood when you floss, you're probably applying too much pressure. It's easy to get carried away when attempting to get at all those food particles stuck between the teeth and around the gum line, but you must use a good technique to get all the benefits from flossing without harming your gums. When done correctly, flossing can reach areas that are missed when you brush your teeth. It's impossible to use a toothbrush alone to get to all the areas where food may be stuck. To floss correctly, you must not only go between your teeth, but under the gum line, gently. The American Dental Association and your dental professional recommend that you floss at least once a day, but some people prefer to do so more after meals. If you have braces, flossing more than once daily can help keep your teeth healthy. What Kind of Floss Should I Use? There are several kinds of floss available in drugstores and supermarkets. The kind you choose is the one that feels more comfortable to you or the one your hygienist suggest. For patients who have gum disease or gingivitis, the waxed floss may be the best option. How Do I Floss My Teeth? The correct way to floss your teeth is by taking about 18-inches of floss, holding it tightly between your thumbs and index fingers and sliding it up and down, between teeth. Use clean sections of floss as you move through the mouth. We are more than happy to demonstrate how to floss properly and do it gently....

Is There Any Reason to Fear Having a Cavity Filled?
Posted on 4/25/2018 by Alyce
There are many people who get nervous about going to the dentist. They expect the procedures to hurt, and they try and figure out ways to avoid going. When it comes to coming to the dentist, one of the most common things we do is fill a cavity. The expectation is that this process is painful. More often than not, the process is simply foreign to the person, which is what makes them nervous. Sometimes, just knowing what to expect can help. Filling a Cavity is a Simple Process When you have a cavity, it means that there is a little hole in your tooth. Typically, this hole comes from outside the tooth, through the enamel, and into the dentin of the tooth itself. This hole is sometimes painful, but sometimes not. It really depends on how deep the cavity goes. To fill this cavity, we clean out the tooth and remove any of the decay from within that hole. We then take the filling material, put it in that hole, and seal it up. That is all we have to do. There is nothing super complicated about the process, but it still seems to inspire fear in some. If you get nervous about coming in to the office, let us know. There are things that we can do to help. If the procedure itself makes you nervous, we can explain it to you, so you know what to expect so that it keeps your anxiety down. There is no reason to go without proper dental care. Call us today, and let us know what type of care you need. Cavities are usually simple issues that we can deal with in no time. We can help alleviate your anxiety if we know what it is you get nervous about....
