Your Teeth Deserve a Resolution


As we wrap up another calendar year (albeit a unique one) most us take some time to reflect on the past and plan for the future.  Often, resolutions are made, for all sorts of reasons:  improving health, spending more time with family, achieving work goals, adapting new habits, working on repairing relationships…you name it.  The benefits of setting some simple goals can be rewarding and motivating. Why not include optimal dental health in your New Year’s resolutions?  Because it’s important to create resolutions that are attainable and manageable, here are some simple habits you could resolve to make (or [...]

Don’t Talk with Your Hand Full


Celebrity or not, wealthy or “just scraping by”, we all have the common bond of having a mouthful of teeth to take care of and we all have to manage our nervousness over routine dental visits and procedures.  Billy Crystal, a well known comedian, wrote a funny reflection on what he observed about teeth; some of us can probably relate. Billy admitted that he grew up not really understanding the importance of oral health…until he observed his grandparents (who never had a single dental visit), sloppily extract their dentures at the dinner table. “'Take care of your teeth, Billy. Take [...]

A Gum Stick a Day Keeps the Dentist Away


It’s hard to check out at the grocery store without eyeing the enticing display of snacks, candy and gum--all within arm’s reach!  Although most of those options would not be approved by your dentist (or doctor), DO feel free to grab a package of gum.  These days, they come in all sorts of flavors:  mint, grape, tropical, watermelon, cinnamon and cotton candy, just to name a few.  Here are some basic do’s and don’ts of chewing gum: DO chew sugarless gum—it promotes a strong flow of saliva DO chew for 20 minutes after a big meal—it helps prevent tooth decay DO look [...]
