Why Talk to Us if You Have Allergies
Posted on 11/25/2019 by Alyce
Allergies play a few different roles in conjunction with your oral health. There are allergy issues that can arise at your scheduled dental appointments and procedures. There are issues that can arise from allergies leading you to the dentist chair. Letting us know all allergies you suffer from can be the difference between life-threatening reactions in a dental chair or protecting you from indirect mouth problems allergies cause. Dental Office Allergies There are three main allergies we need to know when you visit our office. The first is when you have any latex allergy. This can cause hives, itching, tightness in the throat, and difficulty breathing when you come in contact with some dental gloves. Next, if you have any known allergies to anesthetics. You can have reactions to the actual anesthesia or the preservatives in them. Contact dermatitis from ingredients in dental bonding or porcelain can cause redness, swelling, and gum irritation. Dental dams containing rubber can cause reactions around the mouth. If you know of these, let our staff know. Seasonal Allergies Affecting Your Oral Health Ragweed, Pollen, Mold, spores, and dust mites are just a few of the aggressors throughout the year that can cause allergies. On their own, they don't affect your teeth much; it's their side effects to look out for. Dry mouth is very common when your nose is clogged up. Consistent dry mouth puts your teeth at a much higher risk for cavities due to the lack of saliva to protect them. Allergies can cause tooth pain. When your sinuses are compacted it puts pressure on our tooth roots. The increase in bacteria that comes with a nasal drip can quickly lead to bad breath. To protect your mouth, take antihistamines, drink plenty of water, use a humidifier at home when you sleep. By being transparent with us at every visit about allergies new and old, we can maintain a safe, healthy, and effective dental practice to help with all your needs. If you have further questions, please contact us today, we are here for your oral health care....

What Options We Can We Offer for Sensitive Teeth
Posted on 11/15/2019 by Alyce
Sensitive teeth are an ailment for many people and may make it where you can no longer enjoy some of the foods you love. Sensitivity to hot or cold as well as sugary foods is a common issue many people face when they have sensitive teeth. Sensitive teeth are most commonly caused by wear to the tooth enamel. The enamel of the tooth protects the sensitive inner layer of the tooth called the dentin. The dentin of a tooth has many nerve endings which can be bothered by certain foods. However, sensitive teeth can be caused by more than a lack of enamel. More serious cases of sensitivity may point to cases of severely damaged teeth or gums. It is important to note that over the counter sensitivity repair can help minor cases of sensitive teeth, but for more serious cases it cannot be used to help the problem. It is important to consult us if you are having sensitive teeth, because we will be able to assess your teeth and find the cause for them being sensitive. After consultation about your sensitive teeth, there are steps we can take to help you eat the things you loved once again. Ways to Help Sensitive Teeth First, we will do a full examination making sure to look for things that may be causing your problem. Depending on the cause of your sensitive teeth, we will offer different solution to help your sensitive teeth. If your sensitive teeth are cause by enamel wear, we can apply a small amount of fluoride to your teeth which can strengthen your teeth and help with sensitivity. We also may recommend a certain toothpaste based on the type of enamel wear, or applying sealants to those teeth to dull the discomfort. For gum related sensitivity, we may suggest a gum graft. Sensitivity near the base of the gums is typically caused by an exposed tooth root. By implementing a gum graft, we will be able to cover the exposed root and stop sensitivity in that area. If you are experiencing daily sensitivity, we ask that you come into our office for a visit. Sensitivity could indicate more serious problems that will worsen with time, so it is important to get your teeth examined as quickly as possible. While you are here, we can provide you with information on why your teeth have sensitivity and offer follow up treatments if necessary....

Could a Fun Toothpaste Flavor Spice Up Your Brushing Routine?
Posted on 10/25/2019 by Alyce
When we talk about enhancing your health care routines, we often refer to specific techniques and tools. One process that many people tend to overlook is making the brushing process engaging and fun. Here are some of the ways that you can employ to make flossing and to brush routine fun. Switching Up Dental Products If you are keen on making your brushing and flossing process enjoyable, then one way to do this is by upgrading your toothpaste, toothbrush and any other dental accessory. By changing your dental products, you will be able to break the dullness of your day to a daily brushing routine, thereby making the process fun. You can begin by trying out different flavors and brands of toothpaste such as black charcoal toothpaste. Another great way to make your brushing and flossing process enjoyable is by using a manual toothbrush. If you are using a manual toothbrush, then you can switch to an automatic toothbrush. Download Dental Application Research shows that in the year 2017, more than 2.3 billion people were using smartphones, thereby making them an ideal tool for a variety of situations. There are several dental applications such as Disney Magic Timer and Brush DJ, which can make your brushing experience exciting. Have a Dental Journal If you have trouble meeting your daily dental requirements, then keeping a dental journal is the way to go. Every page on the journal may represent a week, and thus, you might opt-out to reward yourself every month or week after meeting your weekly dental requirements. With that said, whenever you need dental services, feel free to reach out to us at any given time. Whether you need cosmetic cleanings or therapeutic procedures, you should count on us....
