Why You Should Switch to an Electric Toothbrush

How many of us take the time to diligently brush each and every tooth, twice a day? Or even pay attention to how carefully we brush? Well, there is one easy way to help with that, and that is to make the switch to an electric toothbrush. They may cost more than the 3-4 toothbrushes you’re supposed to go through in a year, but the improved dental benefits can easily outweigh the cost. It isn’t only dentists who think so, either: In a survey of 16,000 patients published by the American Dental Association, more than 80 percent said they improved their oral cleanliness after switching from their manual toothbrushes to an electric version [source: Electric Toothbrush Reviews]. Electric toothbrushes do a lot of the work for you, and do it better than we can. They have been engineered to properly clean each tooth. A normal person achieves about 300 strokes a second while brushing, but using an electric toothbrush improves that number to well above 3,000. The Sonic brushes can even go over 30,000 strokes per second, and all at a gentle pressure to maximize cleaning of your teeth without doing any harm. Some of the newer electric toothbrushes also come equipped with timers to make sure we brush the full two minutes too. A variety now even come with BlueTooth, and will connect with your phone to play music or tell you when to switch to a different part of your mouth. There are some people who even argue that using an electric brush is a “greener.” According to experts at Green Your, it takes between 14 and...

Starting Your Kids on a Path to Healthy Teeth

It can be a challenge to keep your kids on a consistent brushing schedule, but it is extremely important that you do! Teaching your kids to start a healthy routine of brushing two times a day and flossing once every day can help them form these habits for their whole life. You may think that if your child is young and still has their baby teeth, it isn’t important to take them to the dentist, but dental care for children is just as important as it is for adults. The American Dental Association recommends that you take your child within six months of getting get their first tooth or by their first birthday. Baby teeth serve as guides to the adult teeth, and if they fall out too early, or become very unhealthy, it can affect the alignment of the adult teeth that are coming in. Children have many of the same issues as adults and experience.   For more information visit: http://www.ada.org/en/public-programs/give-kids-a-smile/how-to-care-for-your-childs-teeth Taking your kids go to the dentist regularly will also increase their comfort level with their dentist overall. This will help them ensure they are educated about their teeth and dental hygiene, and lessen the anxiety of going to the dentist and begin a positive experience that will last a lifetime. It can also reinforce the idea of going every six months, an important notion for adults as well! Dental health is important at all ages, it is no different for children. Impressions can be made and lessons learned in those early years, and a healthy mouth is important to lead a healthy...

Teeth Whitening – More Than Just an Aesthetic Fix

We all want to improve ourselves on some level. No one is perfect, and no one ever will be. But we still try every day to at least feel better about ourselves. Well, there’s one easy way we can do that. It won’t cost much, it won’t be painful or use any complicated procedures, and this one simple step can have many benefits. Have your teeth whitened! Studies have shown the immense benefits of having your smile professionally whitened. Not only will you look better, but you will FEEL better about yourself. You will most definitely feel more confident in your smile, and feel yourself smiling bigger and more often. The people around you will start to smile more too, as your new pearly whites will immediately brighten any room you walk into. 99% of adults think that having a white smile is an important social asset, and can also make you appear more attractive. You won’t feel like you have to hide your smile, or do the close-lipped smiles around others, or even for photographs. If you have a special occasion coming up, and you want to look your best, having your teeth whitened is a great little touch that can help you look and feel better. Probably the most important benefit, however, is the improvement to your dental health. While the whitening process itself doesn’t make your teeth any healthier, studies have shown that people who have their teeth whitened will begin to take better care of their teeth. You’ll want to protect your new, white teeth, and that will have positive side effects on your oral...

Dental Health and Heart Health  

Do healthy gums mean a healthy heart? There’s no question that regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups can keep your mouth healthy. But if you fall short on your hygiene routine, can gum disease actually cause heart disease? There’s no conclusive evidence that preventing gum disease — periodontitis — can prevent heart disease or that treating gum disease can lessen atherosclerosis, the buildup of artery-clogging plaque that can result in a heart attack or stroke, according to an American Heart Association statement. “The mouth can be a good warning signpost,” said Ann Bolger, M.D., William Watt Kerr Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. “People with periodontitis often have risk factors that not only put their mouth at risk, but their heart and blood vessels, too. But whether one causes the other has not actually been shown.” Periodontitis and heart disease share risk factors such as smoking, age and diabetes, and both contribute to inflammation in the body. Although these shared risk factors may explain why diseases of the blood vessels and mouth can occur simultaneously, some evidence suggests that there may be an independent association between the two diseases. While the research is ongoing, seeing your dentists regularly, flossing and brushing twice daily, along with other heathy lifestyle choices including diet, exercise, not smoking and keeping your weight at a healthy level will all contribute to a better health. It is important to consult your health care professional for specific recommendations as every individual is different.

Toast to fewer cavities with red wine this holiday!
