Signs You Have Tartar

At Today’s Dental Comfort, we regularly express the importance of caring for your teeth and oral health. It is important that you brush your teeth for two minutes at least twice per day and use dental floss daily. In addition, we recommend patients visit our office every four to six months for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning. Cleaning your teeth regularly and visiting our office for a thorough cleaning is the best way to ensure you don’t have lingering bacteria and plaque on your teeth. Plaque buildup will eventually lead to an issue with tartar.

Should I Brush My Tongue?

You know the importance of brushing, flossing, and caring for your teeth. One area of your mouth you may not be brushing is your tongue. Just as food and bacteria get trapped between your teeth, your tongue is also a magnet for bacteria. It has quite a bit of texture. Bacteria can build up on the tongue and not be fully removed from rinsing the mouth. We encourage our patients to brush their tongues when cleaning their teeth.

At Today’s Dental Comfort, we try to do all we can to ensure that you and your family have lasting and long-term health. One way that this can occur is with routine oral hygiene examinations and cleanings. Most patients should visit our office every six months for a routine appointment. If you have a certain dental condition, such as gum disease, we may recommend visiting more often.

It’s Time for Your Spring Check-up

We don’t know how you feel, but we are thrilled that spring has finally arrived. Spring cleaning is a popular term that describes a deep cleaning, especially in your home, during this season. It is thought of as a way to create a clean slate in your home after the long winter months. We encourage patients to schedule a “spring cleaning” for their teeth and mouth. When was the last time you and your loved ones visited our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months, then you are due for a visit!

Why Is Your Jawbone Important?

When you think about your oral health, the two main areas of concern that we speak of regularly are your teeth and gums; however, there is another area in the mouth that can also be cause for concern, and that is the jawbone. Although we typically give the jawbone very little thought, it holds your entire mouth together. The jawbone creates the guide for your face shape and holds all of your teeth in place.

Is A Cracked Tooth A Big Deal?

Between appointments in our office, it is important to be mindful of the state of your teeth. You should be regularly inspecting your teeth and gums for changes or signs that there might be a problem with your oral health. This can be done visually by looking in your mouth for any indication of a problem. You may also be able to feel changes to your teeth by running your tongue along each one. If you notice or feel any changes, it is important to contact our office immediately. One complication that needs immediate attention is a cracked tooth. Read on to learn more.
