Posts for tag: take care of your teeth

 

When you have a sore limb, the flu, or a headache, you seek medical attention for some kind of relief. General health problems carry a certain amount of gravity that causes us to respond with haste. When dental health seems like it could be compromised, few people respond in the same way. Our Schenectady dentist assures you that your dental health should be as important to you as your whole-body health. Today, we’ll discuss the reasons your oral health is imperative and ways to keep your teeth and gums strong. With excellent care and the aid of our dentist, superb dental health is a possibility for every one of your patients.

Why is dental health so important? If I have a cavity, my Schenectady dentist can just fix it at my next dental exam.

Oral health can suffer from different attackers. Something like a single cavity is a relatively mild dental problem. But a single cavity can spread. It can lead to multiple cavities, to an infected tooth, or even to periodontal disease (infection of the gums). These problems can’t be resolved in a single dental appointment. They take multiple restorations and periodontal therapy to be eradicated from your mouth. Waiting to take action when it seems something could be wrong with your teeth allows the disease time to spread. Additionally, dental problems can lead to whole-body health issues of which many patients aren’t aware.

Does my Schenectady dentist have any tips on what I need to do to maintain stellar dental health?

-       Brush and floss daily, and properly (for long enough and in a thorough fashion)

-       Maintain regular dental exams (every six months)

-       Contact your Schenectady dentist as soon as you feel something is wrong with your teeth or gums

-       Cut back on consumption of acidic, sugary drinks like coffee and soda

-       Rise your mouth with water after eating

There are more tips where those came from – contact our Schenectady dentist to set up your next exam and learn about dental habits that are appropriate for your personal smile.
