Facts About the Spread of Tooth Decay You Should Know
Posted on 8/30/2018 by Dr. Roger Chang
Tooth decay is one of the world's most common diseases. Otherwise known as dental cavities, this condition is entirely preventable. By better understanding some facts about tooth decay and what causes it, you can take the steps needed to protect your mouth. Tooth Decay is Caused by Plaque and Bacteria Not everyone knows exactly what causes tooth decay. It actually develops when plaque and bacteria accumulate on the teeth. Each time that you eat or drink something, tiny particles remain, and these attract bacteria. Eventually, those bacteria turn into an acidic film known as plaque, which eats away at the enamel. Cavities may form, leaving portions of the teeth exposed and vulnerable. Without treatment, your teeth may eventually require extraction. Bacteria Can Spread You can't have cavities without bacteria, and unfortunately, they can spread. Sharing utensils or toothbrushes with someone else can put their cavity-causing bacteria directly into your mouth, where it has the opportunity to breed and adhere to your teeth. So, to some extent, this makes cavities contagious. Tooth Decay is Preventable Tooth decay isn't something that you just have to live with, and it isn't inevitable. There are ways that you can prevent it and protect your teeth: Regular dental visits are also essential in maintaining a healthy mouth. Call us today to set up your next appointment....

Eating a Wide Variety of Produce Really Boosts Oral Health
Posted on 8/20/2018 by Dr. Roger Chang
When it comes to your dental health, prevention and good oral hygiene are crucial. What you eat plays a vital role, and produce, including a variety of fruits and vegetables, can improve your teeth and gums. These are some of the best produce items that will boost your oral health. Apples Apples are great for the teeth, as their fibrous nature will both clean the teeth and boost salivation. A proper amount of saliva will neutralize acid left behind in the mouth, which can reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. Berries Blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, and other berries rich in anthocyanin can prevent bacteria growth on the teeth. Cranberries specifically include a compound known to disrupt production of bacteria that cause tooth decay and plaque. Leafy Greens Leafy green vegetables are packed with minerals and vitamins needed to boost the oral health. These include vitamins A and C, beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous. Specifically, phosphorous is stored in the bones and teeth to help with calcium absorption. Carrots and Celery In order to maintain healthy teeth, you need strong and healthy gums. Chewing on celery or carrot sticks will stimulate the gums. Like apples, they also help to generate saliva. Plus, these vegetables contain beta carotene, which is needed to create vitamin A. Citrus Fruits While you need to be careful with citrus fruits due to the acid, they do offer some oral health benefits. The greatest benefit is the high vitamin C content. Fiber-rich citrus fruits will also help to massage the gums and clean the teeth, and oranges are a great choice. Do you have questions about your diet and how it might impact your oral health? If so, give our office a call. We want to help you maintain strong, healthy, and beautiful teeth, and we'll suggest oral hygiene changes to improve your dental health....

Should You Try Making Your Own Toothpaste?
Posted on 7/20/2018 by Dr. Roger Chang
Toothpaste is an important tool in your oral care regimen, and with so many options available, it can be hard to choose one. Most toothpastes are healthy and work to improve your teeth and gums, but some people have turned to homemade options, instead. While you certainly don't have to make your own toothpaste, there are some benefits that may interest you. Control the Ingredients One of the greatest concerns that many people have about store bought toothpaste is the chemical ingredients. Toothpaste often contains glycerin, sodium laurel sulfate, saccharin, and other ingredients. Some of these are foaming agents, which some people believe could interfere with the basic functions of the taste buds. When you make your own toothpaste, you'll know exactly what is included and the anticipated effects. Simple to Make If you run out of toothpaste, you don't have to get in your car and head out to the store. Toothpaste is easy to make. You can flavor it to suit your own unique tastes using essential oils. The most popular option is peppermint, which has antibacterial and antioxidant properties, but you can use cinnamon, spearmint, clove, or myrrh oils, as well. Save Money While toothpaste probably isn't your biggest expense, making your own could save you a little money. You'll simply use the baking soda, essential oil, water, baking soda, and sea salt that you already have at home. Over the course of a few years, you may accumulate a significant savings. Toothpaste is a very important aspect to your oral health, but it isn't the only concern you need to have in keeping your teeth healthy. Regular visits to the dentist are a necessity, at least once every six months. Call us today to set up your next appointment and let us help you find the toothpaste that will work best for your dental needs....
