Beautiful Smiles Begin at Home

Our teeth are an essential part of our body, not only because they are the tools we use to chew our food, but because they shape our face and allow us to share a beautiful smile wherever we go.

However, many times we take the health of our teeth for granted and forget that as all the valuable things must be taken care of.

Age is not a factor that determines the health of our teeth, they may be at risk at any time and due to different factors such as: gum disease, decay or an accident among others.

Although sometimes we find it boring, the proper care of our teeth is vital for their preservation, cleaning the plaque (which is the main cause of cavity formation), brushing teeth and using dental floss is key to avoid gum disease.

Another unpleasant consequence of bad oral health is bad breath! When we do not brush our teeth daily, bacteria build up occurs in the mouth, which over time becomes the cause of innumerable problems.

A useful tip to add to your oral routines, and that many people do not know is to brush your teeth before eating acidic foods (this way you prevent the enamel from being mistreated by brushing right after eating). Once you finish eating, drink a glass of water to help remove any excess acid that can cause damage to your teeth.

Remember, a healthy smile begins at home!

Flossing is an important oral hygiene practice. Tooth decay and gum disease can develop when plaque is allowed to build up on teeth and along the gum line.

Cleaning between teeth removes plaque that can lead to cavities or gum disease from the areas where a toothbrush can’t reach.

The Perfect Smile for Santa!

November 3, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — PEte Boyd @ 7:15 pm

The season is approaching and it is no secret to anyone that our eating habits change a little during this time of the year.

We increase the consumption of desserts and meals that are not normally included in our diet. And there is nothing wrong with this! but we must take additional measures to ensure that we keep our oral health in order.

Below we share some practical tips to take into account during this season:

1) Do not overdo it with the consumption of candy: we know how delicious and tentative are candy canes and ginger cookies… yes also the cake that your favorite aunt makes and the caramel popcorn, but consume them consciously and brush your teeth after you eat your sweets.

2) Use the nutcracker! These utensils can be very decorative, but in reality they have a purpose! Do not use your teeth to bite hard shells that can cause fractures or break your teeth… avoid unnecessary dental emergencies.

3) Maintain your oral hygiene routine: do not forget to brush your teeth at least 2 times a day.

4) Visit your doctor for your dental check up, we know that the holiday season is one of the busiest of the year for many of us, but maintaining your oral health is not a seasonal issue, it is a must!

Follow these tips and we are sure that you will have a good chance to be in Santa’s good list.

4 Factors for a Cavity to Form

September 3, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — PEte Boyd @ 2:45 am

One of the most common diseases that endanger our oral health, are cavities.
It is common knowledge that not washing our teeth properly can result in the formation of decay and even in the loss of our teeth, if this condition is not treated in time.
What we do not know is that there are other factors that can determine the formation of cavities and we will talk about that in our article today.

Factors for a Cavity to Form

Cavities form when certain types of oral bacteria feed on sugars that come from your diet. After they process sugar, these microorganisms release acids that erode the hard outer coating of the teeth, forming small holes (cavities), which get larger and deeper over time. Some teeth (and some individuals) are more susceptible to cavities than others. It takes four factors for a cavity to form: sugar that is converted to acids, an acidic diet, bacteria, and vulnerable teeth. Effective decay prevention focuses on these areas.

✅ Practice good oral Hygiene
✅ Improve your diet
✅ Watch out for cavity promoters
✅ Regular Dental Check ups
