Why You Should Expect to Drool More with a New Set of Dentures
Posted on 5/25/2019 by Alyce
Whether it is because of injury or decay, you may be facing the fact that it is time for you to get a set of dentures. One of the things we commonly hear from patrons with new dentures is concern that there is increased drooling when dentures are placed. This is completely normal, although we do recognize it can be an annoying inconvenience while your mouth adjusts to having new dentures. Increased Saliva Flow As tempting as it may be to remove your dentures to stop the excessive saliva flow, the first thing we recommend is that you continue wearing them. We recognize that this can be difficult because excessive saliva can be unpleasant, so here are a few tips that can help you get through this transition. Keep in mind that in the first two or three weeks, your body and mouth are adjusting to dentures and that excessive drool and saliva is completely normal. Just because you are drooling more does not mean that there is a complication. If you continue to have excessive drooling after about three weeks, call our office and we can make sure everything is fitting well in your mouth. Find some distractions to help you keep your mind off of your new dentures. It may seem a little silly, but the more you think about your new dentures, the more you focus on them. This can increase your anxiety, and this can lead to even more drooling. Relax, breathe and find something to keep your mind off of the dentures. If you're drooling is extreme, do give us a call as in some cases we can prescribe medication that will help control the drooling. If you have any questions or concerns about your new dentures, please do not hesitate to call our office....

You Need to Make Sure Your Teeth are Healthy Prior to Whitening
Posted on 5/15/2019 by Alyce
If you ask all of your close friends, they will probably all say the same thing. A healthy smile is super important, and the whiter and brighter, the better, right? While we all want a whiter smile, and we all want to look camera ready for whatever might come our way, you need to pay attention to some details prior to whitening to make sure you have the best smile possible. If you are thinking about whitening your teeth, you need to make sure your teeth are healthy before you whiten. Dental Check Up Before you whiten your teeth, you need to make sure your teeth are in great shape. You may want to think about scheduling a checkup with your dentist. That way, if there is a problem with your teeth, you can get it taken care of before you whiten. For example, if you have a cavity that needs to be filled, or a crack in one of your teeth, you need to fix those issues before you whiten. If you don't, you may find that once you whiten your teeth, your cavity or crack is a different shade than your whitened teeth, which may make them more noticeable. If you do go to the dentist and your teeth are in great shape, then you could always have them whiten your teeth while you're there. Many dentists offer teeth whitening as part of their program of care. You can also whiten your teeth yourself using whitening toothpaste, which whiten your teeth over time. You could also try whitening strips or whitening trays if you need your smile whiter more quickly. We would love to talk to you about your teeth whitening needs. Why not give us a call, or stop by, and let us make you an appointment?...

Eggs Can Give You Better Oral Health
Posted on 4/25/2019 by Alyce
We often hear a lot about foods that are bad for us. When it comes to oral health, you've probably been told how sugary foods and anything high in starch can damage your teeth. But do you know what foods are actually good for your oral health? That's a topic that's not as often addressed. You may be surprised to learn that eggs can actually be very good for your mouth. Why Eggs? Eggs contain a large amount of protein, but they also contain very good amounts of phosphorus, In fact, dairy products such as milk and eggs, fish, poultry, and meat are all great sources of this mineral. It helps your body in a number of ways, but when it comes to your teeth, its main purpose is to make your enamel stronger and to help rebuild it. What Is Phosphorus? Phosphorus is a mineral that your body uses to build strong teeth and bones. It works alongside calcium to do this. In fact, calcium and phosphorus are the two most plentiful minerals in the human body. In addition to helping build your bones and teeth, phosphorus also plays a part in waste filtration and in cell and tissue repair, among other things. This is also one mineral that most people do actually get the daily recommended dose. For adults over age 18, you should get at least 700 mg a day of phosphorus. However, unlike some minerals, you actually need more phosphorus between ages 9 and 18. During this time, the body is going through puberty, and your bones are growing to their final adult size. This requires more phosphorus, so doctors recommend older children and teens get at least 1,250 mg per day of the mineral. If you have diabetes, take certain medications, or consume a lot of alcohol, your body may not have as much phosphorus as it needs. In that case, you may need to take supplements. You also may need to see us so we can make certain the enamel on your teeth hasn't deteriorated too much. Give us a call to schedule an appointment if you learn that your phosphorus levels are low....
