Take Note Of These Important Tips For Improving Your Smile Now That Winter Is Here.

By | blog | No Comments

With the onset of winter, you may find that your teeth aren’t as clean and bright as they should be. This is especially true when the temperature starts to drop. The outdoor elements sap your energy just by being exposed to them. And when you don’t take care of your oral hygiene, they just continue to do more damage. In this article, we’re going to cover some important tips for improving your smile now that winter is here.

Visit Us Regularly

The hardest part of keeping your smile healthy is staying healthy. If you go to the dentist regularly, you can avoid a lot of dental problems before they even have a chance to develop. It’s important to remember that your teeth start to deteriorate as soon as you put a toothbrush in your mouth. Even if it’s just brushing your teeth with a toothpaste that’s full of fluoride, it’s still going to do damage. If you want to avoid future problems, you should go to the dentist at least once a month. That way, you can keep your teeth as healthy as possible.

Eat Well And Stay Hydrated

Dental problems start when you don’t take care of your teeth. Specifically, you need to take care of your oral hygiene. That means getting a good dental cleaning every six months, and also taking care of your diet. This isn’t something you have to do everyday, but it is something you need to do consistently. First, you need to brush your teeth twice a day. The best way to brush your teeth is to use an Oral B toothbrush. It’s the one we recommend. Next, you need to use a toothpaste that contains an abrasive agent. There are many different options when it comes to toothpastes. Just be sure that you’re choosing one that’s high-quality and contains an abrasive agent. This is important because it helps to polish your teeth and keeps them shining.

Don’t Forget The Sunlight!

When was the last time you went outside without wearing sunglasses? How often do you forget to let the sun shine on your teeth? Sunlight is what helps you to keep your teeth properly clean. When you don’t expose your teeth to sunlight, they aren’t cleaned properly. If you don’t brush your teeth properly, you’ll end up with plaque build-up on them. If you don’t take care of your teeth, you’ll end up with dental problems like cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay. Sunlight is especially important for people who live in cold areas. It’s also important for people who forget to brush their teeth or who eat poorly.

In order to keep your smile healthy, you need to take care of your teeth. This means ensuring that you brush your teeth twice a day, and that you use a toothpaste with an abrasive agent. You’ll also need to make sure that you’re exposing your teeth to sunlight. With these tips in mind, you can make sure that you’re staying as healthy as possible. When it comes to your teeth, you have the opportunity to improve your smile.

Always remember:

Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time…. Floss everyday.
Change your toothbrush when it looks used.
Visit us every six months.
Eat a healthy diet.

Oral Health

By | blog | No Comments

Practicing proper oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing, as well as scheduling routine dental cleanings and examinations, is one of the most crucial things you can do to keep healthy teeth and gums.

Remember that between routine dental appointments, worrying dental issues could occur that demand care. For instance, bleeding gums are never typical unless you’re using anything other than a soft-bristled toothbrush or you’re flossing for the first time in a long time. If this is not the case and the bleeding persists, you must schedule a consultation with a participating dentist in your region right away to get gum disease checked for, since this condition can have catastrophic repercussions if left untreated.

Tooth discolouration, which is typically brought on by personal vices like smoking or by particular foods and/or drinks you habitually consume, like coffee.

This well-liked beverage could be harmful to your teeth.

By | blog | No Comments

To which sort of beverage do you often turn first when packing a cooler for your kid’s hockey game or heading to the gym? You likely use sports drinks for hydration purposes, just as other athletes do. Some of these beverages may really be detrimental to your oral health, contrary to popular belief.

More Harmful than Pop

Did you know that the artificial sweeteners and sugars included in sports drinks cause the same rise in tooth decay that the increasing use of soda does? According to research published in General Dentistry, the high acidity of energy and sports drinks starts to erode teeth after just five days of daily use.

Sports beverages have been linked to tooth decay and the loss of a smile in otherwise healthy, physically active people who pay close attention to their diets. Some of the healthiest individuals we encounter at the dentist may have the worst cases of tooth decay.

The Peril of Fluids and Why They Must Be Avoided

Even the tiniest crevices and interdental spaces are completely smothered with liquid. These are the places where the acids may lurk for a long time, only to be replaced by new acids every time you drink. Rapid degeneration occurs with regular use. The acidity of sports drinks is comparable to that of [soda].

Should You Use Sports Drinks to Rehydrate?

Studies have shown that sports drinks aren’t necessary for rehydration unless you’re exercising at a professional or Olympic level. Water, rather than other beverages, is the recommendation of experts. To put it simply, the only time you should drink anything other water is if you are engaging in really strenuous physical activity.

Water is not only the most accessible means of hydration, but also a source of fluoride. Water consumption has been linked to better dental hygiene because it removes acidic biofilm. Use plenty of water to wash the taste of sports drinks out of your mouth after your exercise if you must. Because of this, your teeth will be protected from the acid’s effects for a shorter period of time.

Always remember:

Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time…. Floss everyday.
Change your toothbrush when it looks used.
Visit us every six months.
Eat a healthy diet.
Stay hydrated all day long, and don’t smoke.

5 Things Your Mouth Can Tell You About Your Health!

By | blog | No Comments

“Gross, I have something in my mouth”? “That tastes awful!”? This probably happens daily. Your mouth reacts to food and smells like your body. Taste buds in your mouth help you identify sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami flavours (a savoury taste). The vomeronasal organ (VNO) connects the nasal cavity to the throat in your mouth. VNOs let cats and dogs smell pheromones. Your mouth reacts to VNOs sensing pheromones, pollution, or rotten food. 5 health indicators from your mouth!

Bad mood.

You’re stressed because your mouth is telling you so. Stress causes headaches, high blood pressure, heart disease, and depression. Consider your health the next time you think your mouth is gross!

Dehydrated.

Always thirsty? Dehydration causes headaches, nausea, and pneumonia. Despite not being thirsty, your mouth may be telling you to drink more water.

Tooth decay is hidden.

Your mouth can reveal other diseases or disorders that may cause tooth decay. Bacteria feed on tooth decay food sources. If you have diabetes or a low-carb diet, your mouth will react to sugars and starches that your taste buds normally ignore and cause tooth decay.

Digestive issues

Food allergies and intolerances may cause mouth reactions. Your taste buds may be sensitive to foods your intestines cannot process. Celiac, Crohn’s, and IBS patients may have mouth symptoms.

Food allergies or intolerances may exist.

Food allergies or intolerances may cause your mouth to react to all foods. Food allergies occur when your immune system mistakenly attacks a food as harmful. Food intolerances occur when your body cannot break down certain nutrients and reacts when you eat them in large amounts.

Fascinating mouth! It has taste buds to distinguish sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami flavours. The vomeronasal organ (VNO) connects the nasal cavity to the throat in your mouth. VNOs let cats and dogs smell pheromones. Your mouth reacts to VNOs sensing pheromones, pollution, or rotten food. Your mouth can reveal your mood, hydration, and digestion!

How to Avoid Mistakes When Brushing Your Teeth

By | blog | No Comments

Ready to master your mouth? To avoid cavities, gums, and other issues, brush regularly and consistently. It’s not simple. Brushing our teeth is hard, but we like the idea. Avoid mistakes when brushing your teeth. They’ll damage your smile even if you don’t notice them. Let’s examine the most common mistakes and how to avoid them.

The wrong brush

You need the right toothbrush bristles. The most common mistakes are using the wrong brush size and a soft brush instead of a hard one. The wrong brush size causes two main issues: Not brushing all of your teeth and causing discomfort. If you use a pack toothbrush, you may be using the wrong size. Medium and kid-sized toothbrushes are available. The wrong brush size can miss areas. Because the mouth has wide and narrow areas. Large brushes can miss teeth and cause discomfort. You can’t brush the most important areas with a small toothbrush. Choosing the right brush can prevent gum and tooth damage from brushing too hard and often.

Don’t brush long enough

The saying “a mouth worth brushing” is true, but it’s more complicated than you think. First, brushing your teeth for two minutes is a myth. Experts recommend brushing for three minutes, not to a paste, but to a slight foam. Dr. Rob Andrew recommends two minutes. Why? Overbrushing damages teeth, gums, and bone. Bacteria from the teeth is also removed from bone, where it can cause problems. Use your middle finger to lightly press down on areas to brush for the right amount of time. This will help you brush hard-to-reach areas and remove plaque and bad breath-causing bacteria.

Use the wrong toothpaste

Many dentists recommend a toothpaste with multiple flavours. You may have noticed mint or citrus toothpastes. “Whitening” toothpastes are harmful to your smile, despite their appealing name. Whitening toothpastes contain peroxide to bleach teeth. Bad breath bacteria can also stain your teeth. Your smile will suffer. It’s important to choose the right whitening toothpaste because they’re harsher on teeth and gums. Make sure you choose the best option.

Brush too hard

Manual toothbrushes give some of us a good scrub. Brushing too hard can damage your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Too much force can wear down the toothbrush and damage tooth enamel. Too much brushing wears down your mouth’s soft tissue, which can cause bleeding and inflammation. To protect your teeth and improve dental health, use a softer brushing motion. Brushing gently reduces tooth sensitivity.

Don’t floss or brush too hard.

Plaque removal from teeth and gums requires flossing. It’s also important to brush your gums and remove toothbrush plaque. However, brushing too hard can damage your smile. Brushing your teeth, even with a soft bristled brush, can damage the enamel. Brushing too hard and using too much toothpaste can also damage your mouth’s soft tissue, causing bleeding and inflammation. To floss and brush properly, clean between teeth, gums, and teeth. You can floss and brush with a toothbrush.

It’s important to brush your teeth, but it can be hard to find the right rhythm. Your routine should include brushing, flossing, and mouthwash. Avoid these mistakes and follow these steps to get the best results.

Always remember:

Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time…. Floss everyday.
Change your toothbrush when it looks used.
Visit us every six months.
Eat a healthy diet.
Stay hydrated all day long, and don’t smoke.

World AIDS Day

By | blog | No Comments

#WorldAIDSDay

December 1 is World AIDS Day, established in 1988. World AIDS Day commemorates AIDS victims and raises awareness of the HIV epidemic. One of the worst global public health concerns in history, AIDS has killed 40 million people globally since 1981 and infected 37 million. Despite medical advances, the AIDS pandemic kills two million people annually, including over 250,000 children.

AIDS Day History

The first global health day was World AIDS Day on December 1, 1998. The day provides a chance for the globe to unite in the battle against HIV and honour those who died from it.

World AIDS Day was created to capitalize on a media vacuum between the 1988 U.S. presidential election and Christmas. After a year of political campaigns, broadcast journalist James Bunn, who had joined the World Health Organization, thought the public would be interested in AIDS coverage. Bunn and Thomas Netter chose December 1 for the first observance and spent 16 months organizing and implementing it.

The inaugural World AIDS Day focused on children and teens to raise awareness of how AIDS affects them and their families. AIDS was also shown to affect more than only drug users.

From 1996 onwards, the observance of World AIDS Day was taken over by the United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, expanding the campaign to an annual education and prevention campaign. The World AIDS Campaign was registered as a nonprofit organization in 2004 in the Netherlands.

“In order to be really fulfilled, we must constantly challenge ourselves to go beyond our weaknesses and hurts. A lot of hard effort will be required, but there is no other way to go where we want to go.” – Dr. Rob Andrew

5 Tips to Prevent Red In the Sink

By | blog | No Comments

Keeping your teeth clean is important, but so is keeping them clean inside. You might think that you’re doing everything right to ensure that red doesn’t appear in the sink. However, there are several things you can do to prevent red from appearing in the first place. If you have frequent issues with cavities forming in your teeth, this article is for you! Keep reading to find out about these tips and tricks that can help you prevent red from showing up in the sink next time.

Clean Your Toothbrush Often

Clean your toothbrush often. Tooth decay-causing bacteria can collect in your toothbrush bristles. This bacteria can form crystals in toothbrushes and trap in teeth. It’s unpleasant but harmless. Brush your toothbrush with a cleaner. These toothbrush cleaners clean thoroughly. A toothbrush cleaner doesn’t clean the bristles. Rub the bristles and rinse in the bowl. This cleans and disinfects your toothbrush.

Floss Daily

Some think dental floss is obsolete. People must floss daily or twice daily. Avoid flossing occasionally. Only after eating tooth-damaging foods should you floss. Bagels, doughnuts, fries, and other starchy foods are examples. Nuts, popcorn, and sugary foods also require flossing. Daily flossing removes bacteria that erode tooth enamel. Use proper floss. Diabetics should use diabetic floss. It’s made of a material that won’t get caught in mouth blood vessels.

Don’t Eat Hard Foods

Sugary and starchy foods cause tooth decay. Other methods can prevent this. Avoid sugary foods first. This means no more cookies or candy! Avoid starchy foods to avoid red sinks. Potatoes, rice, and other starchy produce.

Hydrate

Drink enough water daily. Red in the sink necessitates this. Not drinking enough water can cause red in the sink. Health determines water intake. Diabetics should drink half their weight in ounces. Underweight people need 1 ounce of water per pound. Don’t add anything to your water.

Keep Your mouth Clear

If you have red in the sink, you’ll want to make sure to keep your mouth as clear as possible. This means that you should brush your teeth as often as possible and that you should brush your tongue as well. When you brush your tongue, you’ve got to brush it properly. For example, you can’t just brush it with your toothbrush. Instead, you’ve got to swish your tongue in a glass of water to ensure that all the bacteria has been rinsed off of it. If you don’t do this, your mouth will be full of bacteria that can lead to red in the sink. You should also make sure to brush your tongue until it’s as clean as possible. This will remove any bacteria that is still stuck to it and prevent red from appearing in your teeth.

Now that you know how to prevent red in the sink, do everything you can to avoid it. To do this, brush and floss daily and drink enough water.

Why Don’t We All Have Perfect Smiles When We’re Born?

By | blog | No Comments

How is the process of your teeth coming in going? Unfortunately, many of us have teeth that are crooked, overlap, or are missing. This is often the result of causes that are beyond our ability to control. The existence of a problem such as an overbite or underbite is one of the most important aspects to consider when it comes to the positioning of your smile. In both instances, the upper and lower jaws are prevented from aligning with one another in the correct manner.

Your teeth may grow crooked, worn down, or protrude out of their sockets if you have an incorrect bite, also known as malocclusion. The majority of individuals have some degree of malocclusion, although in most circumstances, it is not something that has to be corrected. It may be necessary to seek dental treatment for an underbite or overbite if the condition is severe enough.

The Importance of Having the Right Bite

The condition known as an overbite is brought on when the top jaw sticks out farther than the lower jaw. On the other hand, an underbite is the consequence of a lower jaw that protrudes forward from the upper jaw and creates a gap between the two. If your teeth and jaws are not properly aligned, it may have an impact on your ability to talk properly, as well as on your capacity to breathe and even on how you appear. Additionally, having a bite that isn’t aligned may lead to the following issues: an inability to chew food effectively, difficulty maintaining clean teeth, and strain on the jaw muscles and teeth.

People who have an overbite or underbite often struggle with feelings of insecurity over the appearance of their smile. Even though heredity is the key factor in the development of these diseases, there are a number of other factors that may play a role as well. These factors include the loss of teeth, gingivitis, injury, habitual thumb sucking, and incorrect dental restorations.

Do you want to feel more confident about how you appear when you smile? Don’t give an overbite or underbite the opportunity to prevent you from doing so. Make an appointment to come see us as soon as possible.
