At Today’s Dental Comfort, one of our top priorities is ensuring you have optimal oral health. When you visit our office, we do all we can to be sure that this occurs. Unfortunately, some patients make poor lifestyle choices, which can negatively impact their oral health. While these choices might not be affecting their oral health now, they will most certainly lead to problems in the future. Here are some choices you may want to stop making:
Are you interested in learning more about dental implants for yourself or a loved one? Dental implants are a common treatment for when the entire tooth structure, including the tooth root, needs to be replaced. When dental implants were still new, many people were not eligible for treatment.

At Today’s Dental Comfort, our goal is to help our patients become educated about the best ways to improve their oral health. One way to help your oral health is to make sure you have a thorough oral hygiene routine. If you often feel your teeth seem fuzzy or slimy, there is a good chance you are not cleaning them properly. The fuzzy or slimy feeling you are experiencing is most likely plaque. Plaque is a sticky film that coats the teeth and is caused by bacteria from food and drink.
We recommend that our patients visit our office regularly for routine oral hygiene examinations and cleanings. During these appointments, we do a number of things to ensure you and your loved ones have optimal dental health. We thoroughly clean the teeth and look for problems in the mouth such as decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. One of the most common problems patients experience is decay. Depending on the level of decay, we may recommend a dental filling. Are you familiar with this common treatment? Read on to learn more about fillings.
At Today’s Dental Comfort, we carefully monitor our patient’s oral health from appointment to appointment and only recommend a dental treatment when we believe it is necessary. When we recommend a dental treatment, it is imperative that you schedule it as soon as possible. If you visit our office regularly, we are able to spot problem areas in the early stages, and when you get treatment quickly, we can fix the issue. When you do not get treatment in a timely manner, you are setting yourself up to experience problems.

There are many aspects of daily life that can be stressful. As children, we can’t wait to become adults and enjoy the freedoms we believe come with adulthood, such as no bedtime and the ability to eat whatever we want and play endless video games. Then, we grow up, and realize the sad truth, that being an adult means having way more responsibilities than we could have imagined. Jobs, finances, medical issues, family matters, and more increase daily stress. High stress can not only damage your overall health but your oral health as well. When you visit us for a routine hygiene examination, we can often tell your stress level by what we see in your mouth. Here are some ways stress may be harming your teeth and mouth:
