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:
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.
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.
When was the last time you visited our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months since we’ve seen you and your family, now is the perfect time to schedule your next visit. Since we are still in the heart of spring, and many people are cleaning out their homes and preparing their yards for the summertime, we think it’s the perfect time to deep clean your mouth. Read on to learn more about the importance of maintaining routine examinations.
When patients visit our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning, one of their biggest concerns is if there is any sign of decay. Unfortunately, decay is a common problem, especially in children who have a difficult time properly brushing the rear molars. Thankfully, we offer a popular and common treatment that can help prevent cavities and decay in our youngest to oldest patients. Read on to learn more about this helpful and quick treatment.
At Today’s Dental Comfort, we want the best oral health for all of our patients, young and old. This is one of the reasons we stress routine oral hygiene appointments. However, most of the responsibility for your oral care falls on your shoulders. We know that our adult patients are able to care for their teeth on their own, but children need assistance in caring for their teeth at home. There are some habits that can negatively affect your children’s teeth and can impact the future of their oral health.
Do you find yourself tensing from discomfort in your teeth after eating ice cream? You may also notice this reaction if you drink something hot, such as coffee, and then immediately eat something cold, such as cereal with milk. When this occurs, you are experiencing tooth sensitivity. It is not uncommon to experience sensitivity from time to time, especially following certain dental treatments; however, when sensitivity is recurring, you may have a problem with your oral health and need to visit our office. In the meantime, we want to share some tips to help lessen the effects of tooth sensitivity issues.
Have you noticed signs of pink or red when you floss or brush your teeth? If so, that is an indication you are experiencing bleeding gums. Almost everyone experiences bleeding gums from time to time, especially if food becomes trapped between the teeth or you brush and floss a little too vigorously. It is important to contact us at Today’s Dental Comfort if you notice your gums bleed frequently, as that can indicate an issue with your gums and overall oral health.
