Ways to Avoid Halloween Candy Damage
Posted on 11/15/2019 by Sean Saghatchi
With Halloween approaching it can be a bewitching time for your mouth. We all love the fun-sized candy that can disappear with a large glass of milk, Netflix and a bowl of candy you snitched from your child's pillowcase. As scary as the holiday attempts to be, the real scare is the damage that can quickly escalate on your teeth as well as your children. Our office would like to provide some helpful tips to assist you in making it through the witching hours with your teeth intact. Some Friendly Tips and Dental Suggestions The biggest offender of Halloween candy is going to be your sour candies, gummies, and those hard candies you suck on for hours on end. They bombard the teeth with sugar for hours, the sugar is quickly converted by bacteria into acid that starts eroding the enamel. Chose candy that can be eaten quickly. This will limit the time it's in contact with your teeth. Have your children eat a small amount of candy in one sitting and follow it up with a glass of water and about a half-hour later, a good brushing. Make your children and most likely yourself, a large dinner meal before trick or treating. This will reduce the impulse for all of you to tank up on sugar that night. After Snacking Tips Chewing some sugar-free gum for about 20-30 minutes immediately following your snacking is incredibly beneficial. It helps reduce the amount of sugar remaining on your teeth while activating the saliva gland. Saliva helps wash the food away while also fighting the acid produced by bacteria. Always end the night with a thorough flossing, brush for 2 minutes and use a good fluoride mouthwash for at least 45 seconds. Our office wishes you a great Halloween filled with laughs, scares, snacking and most of all a healthy finish. For further information give us a call, we are here to assist you with your oral health care.  ...

Oral Health Benefits That Come Along with Regular Black Tea Consumption
Posted on 10/25/2019 by Sean Saghatchi
To maintain clean and white teeth, most people stay away from sugary drinks like soda pop, energy drinks, and coffee. If you are tired of brushing your teeth after a sugary caffeinated drink or your morning cup of coffee, you are in luck. In multiple studies, black tea is showing to have many side effects that complement good oral care. When you need that lift of caffeine in your life, order up some black tea. How Black Tea Affects Your Teeth and Gums As you drink your black tea, it lowers the bacteria count in your mouth. Black tea contains a large number of polyphenols, one of the main ingredients in tea, they are proven to slow the growth of bacteria in the mouth. Black tea also reduces the overall amount of acid in your mouth, further protecting your teeth from plaque. Other studies show that black tea slows the decay in an infected tooth. Black tea's anti-inflammatory powers combined with its tannins help fight the bacteria that cause gum disease. In the process of fighting bacteria in the mouth, black tea helps with bad breath by ridding the mouth of odor-causing bacteria. How Black Tea Helps Avoid Cancer Antioxidants protect against cell damage in your mouth before cancer can begin. The polyphenols in black tea work to fight off cancer-causing cells located in the mouth. In a lab study of black tea, it has shown that the tea catechins (natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage) act as powerful blockers of cancer in multiple ways. They round up oxidants before cells in your mouth can be injured. They block the growth of cancerous cells and reduce the size and scope of them. The National Cancer Institute has ongoing studies about black tea. The information up to this point shows that making black tea a part of your everyday routine is beneficial. Our office is available to assist you with your oral care. If you need a check-up or would like more information to protect your mouth. Give our office a call, we would be happy to assist you where we can....

How Dental Bonding Can Improve Your Oral Health
Posted on 10/15/2019 by Sean Saghatchi
When it comes to good oral health a procedure that most people don't know about is Dental bonding. It can be applied to fixing gaps in your teeth as well as small crevice that bacteria and plaque can grow. Even if you spend time brushing and flossing, if you still experience cavities, then dental bonding may be a good solution for you. Be sure to ask our office at your next visit if it's right for you. Dental Bonding for Cavity Prevention If you are repeatedly going into the dentist for your regular checkups and showing signs of gum disease and/or cavities in hard to reach places. Dental bonding will help. It allows for certain problem areas to be sealed off from bacteria and acid. Usually, best for areas that you aren't able to reach with a toothbrush and gets the floss stuck or cuts it. It can protect areas down between crooked teeth or small spaces is the rear between molars. How the Dental Procedure Works The problem area is cleaned and all tartar and plaque is removed. The surrounding teeth are prepped with a coating that will allow the bonding material to stick. Then a tooth-colored material is applied, it's the same material applied for filling a cavity. It's a clay-like material which allows for it to be molded while in your mouth. Once set, an ultraviolet hardens it in place. The procedure is straightforward, simple, and can be done in one visit. If you practice good oral care and still have some areas that cause you grief, ask our dentist when you are here next, to take a look and see if the procedure would help. If you aren't a patient and have questions or would like to schedule an appointment, give us a call today. We would be happy to help....
