The Reason You Should Wait to Brush for 30 Minutes After Eating
Posted on 9/23/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
It might seem to make sense. After you eat, you want to brush right away. This is not the best idea. Instead, you should wait a little bit before grabbing your toothbrush. Taking this step is good for the health of your teeth and gums. Why It is a Bad Idea The reason you brush your teeth is to remove the bacteria that grows on them. If the bacteria are not removed, plaque and tartar can form. This can lead to many problems including tooth decay, cavities, receding gums and gum disease. These are not things that anybody wants and that is why brushing is so important. The problem with brushing right away is that the bacteria have not had time to start their growth. Brushing is not able to remove what has not started yet. It takes about 20 minutes for the growth of bacteria to begin. What to Do So, if you don't brush your teeth right after eating what should you do. If you have eaten highly acidic foods or foods that are high in sugar, you can rinse them off by drinking a glass of water. After you do that, wait 30 minutes before you brush your teeth. The growth of bacteria will begin, and you can remove the bacteria instead of allowing them to build up on your teeth. There are some other reasons to wait after you eat to brush your teeth. You can allow your food to settle in your stomach before adding the taste of toothpaste to your mouth. There are many people who suffer an upset stomach from this combination. You can also develop a pattern for brushing your teeth at certain times of the day. Making it a habit means that you get the most out of your brushing and it helps you maintain happy and healthy teeth and gums.

The Damage Acids Really do to Your Teeth
Posted on 9/13/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
When you stop to think about foods that can damage your teeth, you probably immediately think about sugar. However, this isn't the only type of food that can cause damage. Foods and beverages that contain a lot of acid are also problematic. In fact, there are some foods that are so high in acid that you should do your best to avoid them always. These include French fries, fried chicken, potato chips, Pop Tarts, red meat, pancakes, oatmeal, French toast, crackers, cookies, white potatoes, protein bars, roasted nuts, boxed cereals, white bread, pizza, margarine, coffee, citrus fruits (including juices), and beer - items that constitute a large part of the modern, American diet. How Acidic Foods Damage Your Teeth Acidic foods wear away the enamel on your teeth. This is one of the four major tissues that makes up part of your teeth. In this case, it's the part that's typically visible as it covers the outermost part of your tooth itself. When acids wear away at this part of your teeth this process is known as erosion. It will not only change how your teeth look, but it will also open a 'doorway' for bacteria to enter your mouth. This can lead to the development cavities or it can also cause an infection in your mouth. Caring for Your Teeth Cutting back on the amount of acid you have in your diet is always a good thing. Obviously, you can't avoid all types of acid in your diet though. One thing you can do is to take steps to keep your teeth healthy anyway. This means brushing and flossing your teeth daily as this will help you prevent enamel loss. It's also important for you to schedule an appointment to see us every 6 months for a regular checkup and routine cleaning....

Is Sanitizing Your Toothbrush Necessary for Good Oral Health?
Posted on 8/30/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Many people wonder just how clean their toothbrushes are and whether sanitizing them might be beneficial. After all, the mouth is full of bacteria, and in general, the bathroom tends to be a pretty germy place. So, is it really necessary to sanitize your toothbrush? Sanitizing Guidance from the American Dental Association The American Dental Association states that no commercial oral hygiene products can sterilize a toothbrush. Plus, the process isn't necessary, as there is no significant clinical evidence to support that the growth of bacteria on a toothbrush leads to adverse systemic or oral health effects. Simply taking care of your toothbrush may be just as effective as attempting to sanitize. Since bacteria grow in moist, dark places, allow your brush to air dry in an upright position where it is unable to touch other brushes. Don't share toothbrushes and replace your existing brush every three months or so. Rinsing with warm water after you brush might also help, as it will ensure that food particles and excess toothpaste don't stay behind on the bristles. Tips to Disinfect Your Toothbrush If you decide that you would feel more comfortable sanitizing your toothbrush, there is no harm in doing so. These tips may help: If you have any additional questions about how to better care for your teeth, please give our office a call. We want you to have a healthy teeth and gums, and we can help you determine if your current oral hygiene routine is effective....
