Some people notice blood when they brush their teeth. This is most likely caused by bleeding gums. When a person suffers from frequent gum bleeding, it might be a sign of gingivitis or the inflammation of the gums. Untreated gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, a severe gum infection, that can lead to tooth loss and other serious health complications.

How long does a person need to wear braces? Braces are usually worn roughly 18 months to 2 full years depending on the specific orthodontic issue that needs correcting. Some people wear them for shorter terms while some need them for longer. They also need to be adjusted every 4-8 weeks to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment.

Debris, bacteria, and dead cells building up on the tongue over time are some of the reasons why people suffer from bad breath. Brushing the tongue or using a tongue scraper daily is recommended to prevent buildup from happening. Doing so can also remove the white coating on the surface of the tongue and help improve the sense of taste. #TongueScraping #OralHealth
June 26 is National Toothbrush Day! To commemorate this day, we thought we’d look back at the history of toothbrushes. Before nylon-bristled brushes—what we consider to be a toothbrush today—were invented, ancient civilizations used twigs with frayed ends until they switched to toothbrushes made of hog’s hair attached to a bamboo handle. #NationalToothbrushDay #Toothbrush
It is tempting to offer kids with fruit juices instead of soda because fruits are sources of many essential nutrients. However, be mindful of the amount of fruit juice that kids drink because they contain many teaspoons of sugar and harmful acid which can attack the enamel and cause cavities. The best drink options for children are water and milk. To book a dental appointment, call us today! #FruitJuice #OralHealth #Sugar

He is also widely considered as the creator of modern orthodontics, earning him the title “father of modern orthodontics.” Images of old braces or the braces people used before 1970 are similar to the ones invented by Dr. Angle. #DentalHistory #EdwardAngle #ModernOrthodontics
