Mouthwash, like floss, is another defense mechanism against oral hygiene issues. Many people are under the misconception that all you have to do is brush your teeth twice a day, and your mouth will be as healthy as it can be. However, it puts you one step closer to preventing many dental health issues when you take extra precautions. Of course, you must brush your teeth twice a day, but you should also floss daily, use mouthwash twice a day, and never miss out on dental exams. Here are the caveats to keep in mind about using mouthwash.
Today we will discuss what you can do to prevent tooth loss. A common mistake is to focus on only the visible teeth, but each tooth has its importance. Your canines and your molars all impact the way that you bite and eat your food. They also affect how you speak. Even losing one tooth can lead to bone mass loss in your jaw, impacting your neighboring teeth. Here is how you can protect your teeth between dental exams and aid in tooth loss prevention.
Recently, we discussed why tooth discoloration happens. One of the culprits is the colored beverages that we drink, including red wine and coffee. It’s hard to part from the things that we enjoy. Many people feel as if they can’t start their day without a cup of coffee. While many people love this caffeinated (and decaffeinated) beverage, the truth of the matter is that it can leave a yellow hue behind because of the tannins in it. So, the question becomes, how can you minimize tooth discoloration and still bask in a good cup of joe? We have the answer.
If your cavities are causing pain, you may need more than a filling
It’s the best feeling when you come from a dentist’s office and discover that you have no cavities. However, more often than not, patients find that they need many fillings after visiting a dentist’s office. Dentists spend their entire careers trying to stop dental caries or holes from spreading, but what are they, exactly? How can they harm you? Here are five noteworthy things that you should know about cavities.
As we’ve mentioned before, dental health connects to overall health.
As we’ve mentioned before, dental health connects to overall health. The body is interconnected, and when one health issue develops, it can create a domino effect. We highly encourage our patients to take care of themselves on every level. When a person with diabetes doesn’t have the best diet, it is detrimental to their dental health. However, it also impacts their A1C level and their major organs. Today we will share a diabetic guide to excellent dental health.
A mouthguard, coupled with you learning how to relax, can reduce your teeth grinding.
It’s shocking how many people may need a mouthguard but don’t realize it. According to the Sleep Foundation, 80% of Americans grind their teeth while sleeping. If you’re among this 80% of people, you could be doing severe damage to your teeth. Today we’re going to share five signs that you most likely need a mouthguard. It’s our duty as dentists to share as much information with you as possible to keep your dental health on track.
