Are you ever concerned about the health of your teeth? If so, you probably already know that you should brush and floss your teeth daily. You should also schedule appointments with our team regularly so we can catch any issues before they become too severe. However, would it surprise you to know that your oral hygiene regimen will actually benefit your overall health as well?
Have you been told that poor oral habits could actually lead to diabetes? Sadly, if you get an infection in your mouth, it will cause inflammation. This inflammation may not seem too serious to you, however, please note that this inflammation can actually influence the way your body uses insulin.
Similarly, if you have poor oral hygiene, you could also be vulnerable to heart disease. If you have poor oral health, your heart will need to work harder than it normally would to fight off the inflammation. Unfortunately, this will lead to hypertension, high blood pressure, and could lead to a heart attack.
You will also be more vulnerable to other medical problems if your oral health is poor. You’ll be more likely to have osteoporosis, bone degenerations, and autoimmune disease if you have poor oral health. You’ll also be more likely to have Alzheimer’s if you’ve lost a permanent tooth before you turn 35.

Has your smile recently suffered tooth loss or a tooth extraction. If so, implementing effective habits during the healing process is important to ensure that your mouth will recover effectively and properly. A missing tooth does not have to be a lifelong ailment provided you have a plan to deal with the situation. Even a well-scheduled oral hygiene plan could always use a second opinion or a double-check.
The most important step to recovery from a tooth extraction is to always follow your doctor’s instructions and health care guidelines. Our team at [practice_name] wants to ensure all recovery options are done with the greatest of care. This includes recovery via resting, so no working out or strenuous exercise should be done during the recovery process.
If you have any excessive swelling, use ice packs, or doctor-approved cooling packs. If you are in pain, use any pain medications or antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor.
Make sure to follow your doctor’s strict plan for your diet, and do not begin eating until the anesthetic has completely worn off. If you use tobacco products, quit them completely, or at least give them up for two complete days both before and after surgery.
With adequate care and attention, tooth extraction recovery can be done in minimal time. For more information about tooth extractions, or to book an appointment with Dr. [doctor_name] at our office in [city], [state], please contact us at [phone] to speak with a member of our team.
As you may know, certain foods can harm your pearly whites. For instance, foods and drinks like soda and candy can damage your teeth and cause tooth decay. However, did you know that there are several foods that could actually help your teeth?
For example, you probably know that an apple is good for your body, but did you know that apples are also good for your oral health? You see, the chewing motion can produce saliva flow, which can negate bad bacteria and carry food and bacteria away from your mouth. You can also expect increased saliva flow with carrots, celery, and other crisp, fresh vegetables.
Dairy products such as yogurt, whole milk, and cheese can also help your teeth. These foods provide calcium and protein, which strengthen your teeth. They also act as a base, essentially creating an environment where bad bacteria will struggle to grow.
Leafy greens are another food that can benefit your teeth. These are full of vitamins and minerals, which can strengthen the outer layer of your teeth. They also contain folic acid, which has been used to treat gum disease in pregnant women. Almonds also offer a number of the same benefits.
Would you like to learn more about the benefits these healthy foods can have on your teeth? Are you interested in learning more about how you could keep your teeth healthy and strong? Would you simply like to schedule a meeting with Dr. [doctor_name]? If so, please feel free to contact [practice_name] by calling us at [phone]. We’re excited to meet with you!

Caring for your dentures doesn’t have to be a difficult task. They don’t require round-the-clock attention or a constant watchdog to support them. However, neglecting their care can have its consequences. As long as you follow these simple rules for denture care, your smile will thrive:
– Never let your dentures dry out. Always soak them in plain water, or a proper cleaning solution when not in use.
– Be extremely delicate when handling dentures, as they can be easily damaged.
– Always brush the inner parts of your mouth before inserting dentures. Also rinse the dentures in water before inserting, in order to remove any harmful chemicals that may be present from your cleaning solution.
– Be sure to schedule regular checkups with your dentist, and consult them if your dentures become damaged.
– Remove your dentures every night to allow your gums a chance to rest.
– Always avoid using the following products on dentures: teeth whiteners, bleach, hot water, and abrasive cleaning materials.
– Be sure to brush and rinse your dentures daily, but not with toothpaste. Clean them with products including hand soap, denture cleaning solution, mild dishwashing liquids, or products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Never forget to maintain proper oral health care at all times, even with dentures.

You see, tooth decay is fairly common in younger children, especially since there is more sugar being introduced into their diet. These sugary snacks make it easier for bad bacteria to grow in their mouth, which can lead to more cavities. While this may not seem like a problem, did you know that 51 million school hours are missed each year because kids need to visit the dentist?
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to make visiting our dentist a more pleasant experience. For instance, if you have children who nap, try to schedule an appointment that won’t interrupt their sleep. Similarly, remember that a hungry child will probably struggle at our office. Luckily, summer provides a great time for you to find time to visit our team.
It is extremely important to have regular dental checkups to help you keep your little one’s teeth and gums healthy. Furthermore, since oral care can affect the health of their entire body, please remember that scheduling an appointment with our team can actually keep your child’s whole body healthy. In other words, by visiting our dentist, your child be able to keep their teeth, and body, healthy and strong.
