Water is Incredibly Important for Good Oral Health
Posted on 5/20/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
When you want to have really good oral health, then you want to make sure you drink a lot of water. One of the reasons that people are told to drink eight glasses of water each day is to help maintain optimal oral health. This helps to keep your oral tissues moist, and rinse debris and bacteria from your teeth as you drink. The more water you consume, the better. Plus, your teeth can take nutrients they need from the water as you drink it. What Do Your Teeth Get Out of Water? The biggest thing your teeth get from water is fluoride. This comes from treated water or bottled water that has had fluoride added into it. This soaks into your teeth as you drink the water, protecting them. Teeth thrive when they have a fluoride coating because it helps to ward off cavities. The wetter your oral tissues stay, the better as well. When you get dry mouth, you are far more susceptible to things like gum disease. If you can keep your oral tissues moist, then they are better able to defend themselves against things like bacteria. Your teeth are also less likely to get cavities if you drink lots of water. As you drink water, you swallow any debris that's in your mouth, leftover from the foods you ate throughout the day. This keeps it from doing any damage to your teeth. The more you drink, the cleaner your mouth stays. To figure out other ways that water helps improve your oral health, come in and see us. We would love to teach you ways to improve your oral health because that makes our job easier and you happier to come visit us. Call us today and schedule your next exam and cleaning....

Three Things to Never Do with Dental Veneers
Posted on 5/10/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Dental veneers are a wonderful investment for a beautiful, new smile. However, proper care is a necessity if you want to keep your veneers safe. To help your veneers last as long as possible, it is important to avoid a few things. Don't Eat - or Chew On - Especially Hard Things Consider what you are putting into your mouth wisely. Taking a bite into an apple exposes the veneers to a lot of force. The same is true with chewing ice or gnawing or biting on a pencil. Try to keep non-food items out of your mouth, and take the time to cut up harder foods into smaller, more manageable bites. Your smile will thank you for it. Don't Drink Staining Beverages Veneers can't be whitened like the natural teeth. For this reason, it is important that you take steps to prevent staining of the resin. Red wine and coffee are often the biggest culprits. While modern veneers themselves are more stain-resistant than ever, certain types of cement can easily pick up stains. Since cement tends to border the veneers, you could end up with an outlined tooth. Don't Fail to Treat Your Bruxism If you have a habit of grinding your teeth, you need treatment for this issue to protect your veneers. The condition is known as bruxism, and it involves excessive grinding of the teeth. This action could cause tiny, microscopic cracks and breaks in your veneers. Over time, the result may be significant and irreversible damage. Your dentist can recommend mouth guards and other treatment options to protect your teeth against bruxism. Have you considered dental veneers as a way to improve your teeth? You deserve to have a beautiful smile that makes you proud.
