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! Read on to learn more about the importance of routine dental care.

What To Know About Dry Mouth

Do you wake up in the morning and your mouth feels like it is sticky and dry? If so, you are experiencing dry mouth. This is a common condition that results in a lack of saliva in the mouth. It can become a problem because saliva is needed to help rinse away lingering food and bacteria. When bacteria linger on and between the teeth as well as along the gumline, it will lead to problems, such as gum disease and tooth decay.

Keep Teeth Healthy This Halloween

We cannot believe that Halloween is right around the corner! It feels like we were just watching fireworks during the summer! We know that all around us are spooky decorations and scary movies! We wouldn’t want your oral health to give you a fright too. This time of year is well known for an abundance of sweets and sugary drinks. Unfortunately, they can quickly wreak havoc on your teeth and lead to a number of problems.

Is Your Lifestyle Negatively Affecting Your Oral Health?

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:

What Is Dental Plaque And Why Is It Harmful To Your Oral Health?

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.

When you do not get treatment in a timely manner, you are setting yourself up to experience problems.

Is Your Stress Level Damaging Your Teeth?

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:
