Did You Realize an Extraction is Traumatic?
Posted on 3/25/2020 by Alyce
Having a tooth removed is an ordeal. People who need a tooth removed due to decay or other reasons often fear the pain. Pain after having a tooth removed is normal. However, pain may not be all that you need to worry about after a tooth extraction. When a tooth is removed from your mouth, an empty space is left. This empty space presents two problems. First, bacteria in the mouth can more easily attack your gums. This may cause your gums to become inflamed or even get infected. After a tooth extraction, it's important to take very good care of your teeth or your gums may suffer. Second, tooth extraction may also cause your bite to be uneven. An uneven bite may make eating more difficult. It also puts your other teeth at risk for damage. When your bite is uneven, the pressure applied to your teeth isn't evenly distributed. This may make a tooth crack. How to Prevent a Tooth Extraction Fortunately, it's easy to avoid a tooth extraction with a few simple steps. It's important to always take good care of your teeth. If you're worried about tooth extraction, maintaining proper dental hygiene should be a high priority. Proper dental care consists of brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day. You'll also need good technique to make sure you remove as much bacteria as possible. Brushing and flossing aren't enough to remove bacteria in your mouth. Even after brushing and flossing, a small number of bacteria remains in your mouth. These bacteria eventually forms plaque, which can't be removed with brushing and flossing. That's why it's important to come visit our office every six months for teeth cleanings. Teeth cleanings remove stuck on plaque your brush can't remove. If you want to schedule a teeth cleaning, just call our office and we can book you an appointment....

Dangers of Not Brushing After Breakfast
Posted on 3/15/2020 by Alyce
You know brushing your teeth twice a day is important. Brushing gets rid of some of the bacteria that causes tooth decay and gum disease. Though brushing twice a day is important to your oral health, could you be doing it wrong? Does it really matter at what times you brush your teeth as long as you do it twice a day? Yes, it does matter when you brush your teeth. Brushing at the wrong times a day may cause a few different things. First, you could be causing excess wear on your teeth's enamel. Second, you could be letting bacteria in your mouth stay for too long. And finally, brushing at the wrong times could make your brushing ineffective. Choosing when to brush is just as important as brushing itself. If you're not brushing after you eat breakfast, you may be letting bacteria grow for too long. Why Brushing After Breakfast is Better? Many people choose to brush their mouths right when they wake up in the morning. However, this is not the most effective time to brush. When you choose to brush before breakfast, the food you eat for breakfast stay in your mouth. Brushing after breakfast allows you to clean out your mouth and keep it clean until lunch. Besides being better for your oral health, your co-workers may even appreciate the change. Brushing after breakfast is more effective, but there's some things you should know. When we eat acidic foods, they soften the enamel of your teeth. Brushing right after eating can damage our enamel. If you choose to brush after eating, wait at least 30 minutes to do so. This will give the acid in your mouth time to neutralize. For more information about how to brush properly, we're here to help you. Give our office a call if you're interested in learning more about proper brushing technique....

Specialty Bottled Water Vs Tap Water: Which is Better
Posted on 2/29/2020 by Alyce
In the past, no one used bottled water, largely because it was thought unnecessary, and it was prohibitively expensive. In the 1950s and 1960s, water was sold in glass bottles. Plastic water bottles gradually began to be used in the 1970s, and the popularity of water bottles began to soar in the 1980s and 1990s. Americans use 43 billion bottles of water every year. Among all of those billions of water bottles, which kind of water is better for you? Should you use regular tap water or specialty bottled water? Which one is better for your oral health? We have some answers. The Benefits of Electrolytes and Vitamin Waters Electrolyte water and vitamin water can be both good and bad for you. These enhanced waters are great for people who are trying to replace minerals in their body that have been lost due to exercise or working out in the field. The water replaces your body fluids and minerals depleted from your body. Most importantly for your oral health, enhanced waters work to replace fluids in your mouth. When your mouth gets dry, bacteria can grow, because there is no saliva to wash the bacteria away. However, you need to use caution. If the enhanced water you drink has a lot of sugar in it, you increase your risk of tooth decay or gum disease, not to mention you are adding a lot of calories to your diet. The Benefits of Tap Water Tap water has no added sugar, which makes it great for your mouth to rehydrate and also to keep the levels of bacteria in your mouth down. However, people who are working outside or who are athletes need to replace the minerals and electrolytes lost during athletic activity. Enhanced water can do that more quickly. Do you have questions about what kind of water is best for you? We can help! Give us a call today....
