It’s almost Halloooooooooweeeeeeeeeeen…………………. In the midst of all the BOOS and OUCHS and SCREAMS etc., the fun part is the CANDY – candycorn, eyeballs, gummy worms, to name a few.

Don’t let the candy cause an oral health nightmare. Don’t let any creepy cavities get into your teeth. The chewy candy gets stuck in the grooves of your teeth. Try to brush every time you eat something that...

Holiday Season and Dental Hygiene

Posted on Dec 10, 2014 in News | 0 comments

Holidays are here…  popcorn, cookies, blintzes, eggnog, candy canes, and all the good stuff. All these taste great but are not good for your teeth. Most of the treats are high in fat and sugar content. That doesn’t mean you should not enjoy these treats. Eat them in moderation.

In geographic tongue patches of tongue get denuded and the papillae are lost. The appearance is a white or red patchy tongue making it look map-like. The patches move around frequently. There is no known cause for it but it is thought that genetics, stress,...

Tooth sensitivity is such a common problem. It is caused when the enamel wears away and the second layer of tooth (dentin) is exposed or when the root surface is exposed. Dentinal structure is tubular and there is fluid in the tubules. The movement of this fluid causes nerve irritation. It can be caused by several factors: Worn down enamel – brushing hard with a hard toothbrush Grinding (click here for more details ) Receding gums – brushing hard, gum disease Cracked teeth Bulimia and acid reflux causing wear of enamel Symptoms can be increased by consuming cold, hot, acidic or...

It’s the end of the year 2014 and everyone is in a festive holiday mood. Along with that, a lot of patients have the burden of picking their insurance for the upcoming year and have been asking questions about Dental Insurances and how to pick one that’s good for them. If the company you work for is offering more than one choice….. My advice – look through the plans, read the fine print and talk to the benefits manager to get all the details and explanations. Couple of things to keep in mind: Make sure your doctors are on your plan that you choose. Look for the amount of benefit you...
