Why a Toothache Should Never Get Ignored
Posted on 3/25/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
People have many reasons to attempt to ignore tooth pain. Dental anxiety, lack of insurance or lack of money are the most common. Of course, it is more than worth finding a way to resolve these issues, as your dental health affects your overall health and your health is much too important to ignore. That toothache will continue to get worse as the damage deepens with time and continued exposure to bacteria or whatever is causing the pain. Not only will the pain worsen, but the problem will become ever more expensive to resolve. Time is of the essence. Dental Issues to Address Cavities - Cavities are formed as bacteria turn into acids that attack the tooth's protective enamel and eat into the tooth. Bacteria is allowed to reach the center of the tooth, and eventually the roots and deeper, causing infection resulting in pain and perhaps an abscess. Abscessed teeth have sent many people to the hospital and can be very dangerous. Periodontal Disease - Gingivitis is inflammation in the gums caused by plaque buildup on the teeth and gums. Ignoring gingivitis will result in tooth loss and heightened risk for heart disease as it becomes periodontal disease. Bleeding gums may also indicate the presence of diabetes, or can even cause gestational diabetes in women, so taking care to treat signs of gingivitis is vital. Another big reason never to let tooth pain go unchecked is that it can be a symptom of a pending heart attack. Pain can be an indicator of many different issues, but, as common as it may be, it's not okay. It is your body trying to call attention to a major problem that can lead to dangerous situations that are much more treatable if they are addressed early on. If you are suffering with tooth pain, call our office today to schedule your dental appointment and head off a much bigger amount of pain and damage in your body!...

Where Do You Currently Store Your Toothbrush?
Posted on 3/15/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Do you keep your toothbrush out on the counter of your bathroom, like a good number of other people do? This is not the best place to store your toothbrush. Even if you have it stored inside of a container, this could still result in you using a toothbrush that has a lot of germs on it. The best place to store your toothbrush is in an open container within your medicine cabinet. This way, you protect it from as much debris and as many germs as possible. The Dangers Associated with Storing Your Toothbrush on the Counter It is never a good idea to store your toothbrush on the counter. This exposes your toothbrush to a wide range of debris and bacteria. Each time someone walks through your bathroom, they kick up dust, which can settle on your toothbrush. This is especially true when you have a damp toothbrush. Each time the toilet gets flushed in the bathroom, that sends out debris from whatever was in the toilet at the time. That bacteria also lands on your toothbrush, which you then put in your mouth. This is not a good idea and could result in you getting incredibly sick. You should also store your toothbrush out of the way. You want it exposed to as little bacteria and debris as possible. To keep yourself healthier, you should sterilize your toothbrush at least once per week by pouring boiling water over it, soaking it in peroxide and rinsing it before use, or putting the head of your toothbrush on the top rack of your dishwasher. This keeps the bacteria down and keeps you healthier. For more tips on keeping your toothbrush clean and sanitary, come in and ask us at your next dental checkup....

What is the Right Quantity of Toothpaste to Use?
Posted on 2/25/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
The right quantity of toothpaste is the best way to go when it comes to brushing your teeth. Many tell you not to use too much or too little. They even say don't swallow it or don't use this brand or that. It is important to know what you are putting in your mouth at all times and this can be a time to learn the many things you can use to brush your teeth and make the most of it, at the same time. Here is a small guide to jump start you through brushing your teeth and making sure you have the right quantity of toothpaste on the brush when it comes to cleaning. How Much is Enough? The recommended amount of toothpaste that is qualified as the right amount is a pea-sized amount. This is an amount that is perfect to fit on the toothbrush and to brush your teeth with. You can clean the outside of the teeth without having to worry about the sugar and other additives in the toothpaste causing problems, while also ensuring that you do not have too little to brush with. When you have too little, you are not getting enough clean or enough fluoride, which can be detrimental to your oral health. Having the right amount is something that you can always make sure to have so that you can max out on those oral health benefits that follow. You want the best and we have the best to offer you. Give us a call here to find out even more about your oral health and ways you can benefit your brushing and flossing. We can provide you with even more information when the time comes so you can feel much more confident about being able to brush with ease and know you have cleaner, healthier teeth.
