Have a glass of water before tea! Since tea contains caffeine, it is better to drink water first to reduce acidity, which reduces the effect of tea on your teeth and your gums!


The tooth is the only part of the body that can't heal itself!


You shouldn't brush your teeth after vomiting or reflux. Doing so can cause more damage to your teeth. Instead, use water to rinse your mouth out once you're feeling better.


Why is it better to receive teeth whitening treatment from a professional dentist? Over-the-counter products are legally only allowed to contain up to 0.01% peroxide, which is too low to have a significant impact on the color of your teeth. Ask our office how we can brighten your smile today!


Everyone knows you need calcium for your bones and teeth, but did you know that your body needs Vitamin D to absorb the calcium? So make sure you still get some sunlight, even in the fall!


You probably already know that a diet of fruits and vegetables is good for teeth, but starchy foods are an essential part of that diet, too. Bread, rice, potatoes, and pasta help balance out your diet for healthy teeth.


To***co stains teeth and significantly increases the risk of gum disease and oral cancer. If you smoke or use chewing to***co, consider quitting.


What made you smile today?


Drinking teeth-staining liquids (such as coffee or tea) through a reusable straw can help reduce the staining on your teeth and may help reduce the risk of tooth decay.

You might have to reach for your child’s toothpaste every once in a while when you run out, but make sure you don’t make it a regular thing. Children’s toothpaste does not have adequate fluoride for adults.


A baby tooth usually remains in the child's mouth until a permanent tooth underneath it is ready to emerge through the gums.


There are 10 to 12 teaspoons of sugar in a single can of soda! By avoiding sugary drinks like sodas and fruit juices, you can significantly reduce your risk of tooth decay!

If you’re a smoker, here’s one more reason to quit. Not only does smoking affect your physical health, but it can also harm oral health as it causes bad breath, yellow teeth, and increases the risk of gum disease.


It is recommended to change your toothbrush about every three months


People don’t chew up and down; they chew side to side just like cows chew!


Brushing before bed is crucial. Saliva helps fight cavity-causing bacteria, but you don’t produce much saliva while you are sleeping. Cleaning your teeth before bed prevents acids from eating through the enamel on your teeth, which can lead to tooth decay.


Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.


What's your favorite brand of toothpaste?


It’s impossible to be “immune” to dental problems. However, by taking care of your teeth properly, you can prevent any issues from arising.


Three percent of adolescents age 12 to 19 have never been to the dentist.


Make sure your toothpaste contains fluoride. This mineral helps strengthen your tooth enamel, thereby making your teeth more resistant to tooth decay.


You’ve heard that you should get enough sun to make vitamin D, which is good for your bones. This extends to your teeth and gums as well. You can also get vitamin D and calcium in supplements.


There is evidence that dentistry has been practiced since 7000 BC.
