What should I do if I have bad breath?

Bad breath affects us all from time to time, yet many of us don’t recognize it in ourselves. While certain medical conditions can contribute to halitosis, typically the main cause is due to microorganisms situated on our tongues; specifically those located at the back of them! Thankfully though with proper dental hygiene involving brushing one’s tongue, bad breath can be reduced by up 70%.

What can I do to prevent bad breath?

Brush at least twice a day using an ADA approved fluoride toothpaste and replace your toothbrush every 2 to 3 months. Don’t forget the floss! Scrape away bacteria from hard to reach places on your tongue, too. If you’re wearing dentures or removable bridges, make sure they get cleaned regularly for best results – then pop them back in each morning. For optimal dental health, be sure to visit the dentist every 6 months (or more often if needed). Smoking/chewing tobacco can damage teeth and gums – talk with your dentist about ways that may help quit this habit once & for all! Finally: stay hydrated by drinking water frequently; it will help keep saliva flowing while washing harmful microbes away from areas around the mouth area where cavities tend form quickly.

How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?

Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are a key part of maintaining optimal oral health. Our experienced team is dedicated to helping you achieve your best smile, which means coming in twice a year – or more if recommended by our dentist or hygienist! From checking for cavities to polishing teeth, we’re here every step of the way on your journey towards strong and healthy pearly whites!

Why is it important to use dental floss?

While brushing is essential for proper dental health, it can’t help clean the areas that bacteria and plaque love to hide – between your teeth! Daily flossing not only helps keep these spots spotless but also prevents damaging tartar buildup in hard-to-reach places. Plaque colonies contain a mix of living organisms like bacteria, as well as debris from food you eat. Without regular cleaning, these harmful substances produce acids that cause cavities and gum issues down the road. To protect your smile now and long into the future: don’t forget to floss each day!

What are porcelain veneers and how can they improve my smile?

Porcelain veneers offer a unique solution for those wanting to brighten their smile and restore its beauty. These thin shells of porcelain are custom crafted to fit over the front of your teeth, providing an enduring finish that won’t stain or discolor – perfect if you’re dealing with severe staining, uneven spaces between teeth, chipped edges or misshapen appearances. Veneers can even provide small corrections such as crowding adjustment and size alteration!

What may cause bad breath?

Bad breath can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from what we eat to our oral hygiene habits. Morning time is especially prone as saliva flow drops during sleep and allows bacteria to grow more quickly. Foods such as garlic and onions cause odor-producing compounds that enter the bloodstream and are exhaled through the lungs; poor dental care leads to food particles promoting bacterial growth, while gum disease fosters colonies in inflamed gums; cavities or incorrectly fitted dentures also contribute–as does dry mouth (caused by certain medications). Lastly, tobacco products lead to dehydration which further causes bad breath! Even dieting has its downside: ketones released when fasting produce an unpleasant scent on their own!

Are amalgam (silver) fillings safe?

For over a century, amalgam fillings have been the preferred dental treatment for filling cavities. Made from copper, silver and tin blended with elemental mercury, these metal-based restorations are widely used by dentists to treat tooth decay – but this practice has raised some safety concerns in recent years due to potential exposure of vaporized or small particles of mercury. The American Dental Association (ADA) strongly defends their use as safe through multiple studies that failed to show any link between health problems and silver containing Mercury found within them; 76% of practicing dentists continue using Amalgams today based on ADA’s assessment. With an overwhelming majority agreement amongst experts in support thereof it seems clear that at present time the consensus holds true: Silver Fillings are indeed safe!

How can I tell if I have gingivitis or periodontitis (gum disease)?

How can you tell if you’re at risk of gum disease? Poor oral hygiene isn’t the only factor – other conditions, such as smoking and diabetes, also increase your chance of getting gingivitis or periodontitis. Taking good care of your teeth with regular brushing and flossing is essential to prevent plaque build-up which could cause serious damage over time. Even small steps in daily dental maintenance make a big difference!

How can cosmetic dentistry help improve the appearance of my smile?

From restoring a single tooth to having an entire mouth makeover, cosmetic dentistry offers solutions for those seeking a more confident and beautiful smile. As the world has become increasingly focused on wellness – physical, emotional, mental – dental health is no exception. Modern advances in materials used have made transforming your grin easier than ever before! Now’s the time to ask your dentist what options are available so you can be proud of every beam that graces your face.

What can I do about stained or discolored teeth?

For those looking to brighten their smile, there are various whitening treatments available. Professional bleaching is a simple and safe solution offered by dental professionals that can give you quick results without the risk of damage to your teeth or gums. Over-the counter products may provide some benefits as well but they don’t offer anywhere near the same level of effectiveness, meaning professional care offers far better value in terms of achieving perfect pearly whites!
