Poor Oral Health Can Make You Constantly Fatigued
Posted on 1/25/2020 by Alyce
Do you feel tired and run down all the time? So many things cause fatigue and exhaustion. Some people suffer from chronic fatigue, meaning they constantly feel tired. Chronic fatigue may be a symptom of many disabilities and illnesses, but the most neglected symptom are those associated with gum disease. The topmost possibility of gum disease affecting your levels of energy is by it being a contributing factor to other diseases and symptoms. Studies indicate that gum disease can affect the way we feel in general. Failure to treat it will in turn affect your general health. How Can Poor Oral Hygiene Reduce Your Energy? Our gums are rich with blood vessels. If we suffer from gum disease or oral infections, the blood vessels are used to transport the pathogens to different parts of the body. This means that the longer the disease is present, the more likely it is for it to start affecting other organs, causing you to feel tired and worn out. If you suffer from a tooth pain that has not been treated, chances are that it is quite difficult for you to get a good night's sleep. Even if you are able to sleep, a lingering throbbing pain constantly wakes you up. This pile-up of fatigue is only bound to make you exhausted the next day. If you are suffering from a toothache, do not hesitate to visit us for a checkup. Studies have been able to link poor oral hygiene to diabetes and heart disease. The latter often leaves you feeling very fatigued. Preventing Gum Disease Prevention is crucial; that is why you should begin preventing gum disease at home. We advise you to brush and floss your teeth on a regular basis and visit us for professional cleaning once in every 6 months. To maintain a healthy mouth, organs and an entire body, you should take steps to prevent gum disease....

How Protein Boosts Your Oral Health
Posted on 1/15/2020 by Alyce
When people think about their daily protein intake, probably the last thing on their minds is oral health. Most people think of protein as a way to build muscles in the body. However, protein plays an important role in oral health. Too little protein can actually have negative side effects to your oral health. Animal proteins play a vital role in keeping your teeth and jawbone strong and healthy. This is because animal proteins contain phosphorus. Phosphorus strengthens the teeth and jaw muscles by binding to the enamel of your teeth. Since enamel can't be regrown, the best way to protect it from wear is to strengthen it as much as possible, and phosphorus can help with that. If you want the most out of your animal proteins, try to eat them with a glass of vitamin D fortified milk. The triple threat of phosphorus, vitamin D, and calcium will strengthen your teeth and bones in no time! Rebuilding Your Body From The Inside Out Another reason why proteins are great for your oral health is because they help rebuild tissue in your mouth. By eating and brushing on a daily basis, microscopic cuts are made in the tissues of your mouth. While most of these cuts are no problem, they can turn into a problem without enough protein in your diet. Protein helps to rebuild these areas. Cuts that can't heal properly can grow into larger cuts or sores and become infected. Finally, protein can help fight off infection. People who have infected mouths may not know how to get rid of an infection, but protein can help. Protein not only helps rebuild tissue, but also promotes a strong immune system. A strong immune system is the number one way to fight off infections throughout the body. If you would like to learn more about how to promote good oral health with the foods you eat, give our office a call, and we'll be happy to help you....

The Best Flossing Techniques Make Flossing Not Painful
Posted on 12/25/2019 by Alyce
Many people overlook flossing and often do not do it because it can cause them pain or discomfort. It is important to floss to help prevent cavities and gum disease. This is because the floss can help to remove plaque and food particles that are stuck in between teeth that can lead to decay. Flossing every day is recommended by the ADA and should be a part of everybody's dental hygiene routine. Here are some tips that can make flossing more enjoyable and less painful. Type of Floss First and foremost is the type of floss that you choose. There are many varieties such as waxed and unwaxed, monofilament and poly filament, flavored or unflavored. Each one has its characteristics, such as monofilament is made with PTFE and is one strand versus poly filament being composed of multiple strands. The benefit of monofilament floss is that it is less likely to fray when subjected to very close contact points on the teeth. Although the cost may be higher, it can generally be more comfortable than a poly filament. It is wise to experiment with different types to see which floss is more pleasant. Whichever that is, is probably the best one for you. Techniques When it comes to the act of flossing itself, it is important not to let the floss snap down. It is best to gently slide it back and forth to the gumline. Bend the floss into a C shape and get the sides of each tooth it is between. Lightly move the floss to the area under the gumline, but be careful not to be too rough. If done too vigorously it can cause damage to the gums and lead to bleeding and of course pain. When removing the floss be sure to ease it back and forth on the way up. It is always recommended to avoid snapping it. Be sure to advance the floss to a clean piece for each new area which prevents bacteria and food buildup from redepositing somewhere else. Being very gentle is the best way to avoid pain. If your gums hurt or bleed due to flossing you may be being too rough with it. If you have questions about how to floss and how often or are just looking for more tips call our office to schedule a consultation. We would be delighted to discuss our recommendations on types of floss and other tips to avoid the pain that is often associated with flossing....
