“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.” – Thich Nhat Hanh


Cotton candy is probably one of the worst foods for your teeth because it’s sticky and sugary, likely to cause cavities if eaten regularly. Ironically, it was co-invented by a dentist and nicknamed “fairy floss” because of that.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


Not every tube of toothpaste is made equal. Be sure to choose one that is approved by the American Dental Association. This means that they have deemed it safe and effective to use in your mouth.


Happy Friday!


If you ever looked at your cat and wished you could have their life because all they do is sit around and hangout all day, here’s another reason to be envious of them. Cats can’t get cavities like humans can due to the shape of their teeth and their diet.


Did you know that what hand you write with typically determines what side you chew your food on? What hand do you write with?


Have a great weekend!


Not everyone has the same amount of wisdom teeth. Most adults will have four – one in each quadrant of the mouth – but about 35% don’t have any at all, while 1-2% can have more!


Don’t Forget to schedule your next dental appointment!


“A smile cures the wounding of a frown.” – William Shakespeare


Did you know that without vitamin D, your mouth wouldn’t be able to absorb calcium? Fortunately, you can get all the Vitamin D you need every day just by going out into direct sunlight for about 15 minutes.


Do you experience a lot of stress or anxiety? You might have bruxism, a condition where you unconsciously clench or grind your teeth, usually while you’re sleeping. If you wake up with a sore jaw or teeth, ask your dentist to check you for signs of bruxism.


“Smiling is definitely one of the best beauty remedies. If you have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that’s beautiful.”– Rashida Jones


Toothpicks are the object that Americans most often choke on. While they may seem harmless, they can damage your teeth. They can irritate gum tissue and wear on the grooves of your teeth. When you have something stuck in your teeth, clean it out with floss instead.


Many people brush their teeth too vigorously. Only the very tips of the bristles clean your teeth, so don’t apply so much pressure that the bristles lay flat against your teeth. Think of brushing more like polishing an eggshell rather than scrubbing.


Every year, Americans purchase a total of about three million miles of dental floss. That’s enough floss to stretch to the moon and back six times!


If you’ve just consumed something acidic, like citrus fruits or soda, don’t brush your teeth right away. Wait at least half an hour. The acids in your food and drink temporarily soften the tooth enamel and brushing afterward can be abrasive. Waiting gives your saliva time to neutralize the acids.


“A smile is the universal welcome.” – Max Eastman


The mouth heals from injuries faster than any other part of the body. This is because saliva actually aids with healing. It’s also due to the plentiful blood supply in the area and the simplicity of the soft tissues in the mouth.


It’s never too early to keep your little one’s mouth clean. As soon as your infant comes home from the hospital, you can clean their mouth by gently wiping their gums with a wet washcloth. This can prevent gum infections and decay in the underlying baby teeth.


Happy Friday!


Almost half of the young adults have untagged themselves in a photo on social media because they are unhappy with the way their smile looks in the picture. If you feel like your smile leaves something to be desired, ask your dentist if they can help with things like teeth whitening or Invisalign.


Did you know that even after you brush, bacteria can remain on your tongue? Don’t forget to add brushing your tongue to your oral hygiene regimen. Not only will your mouth be cleaner, but it will freshen your breath too.


“A smile is happiness you’ll find right under your nose.” – Tom Wilson


General Electric invented the first cordless electric toothbrush in 1961. Unfortunately, this model used NiCad batteries, notorious for their short lifespans. Since the toothbrush could not be opened, it had to be discarded once the battery ran out.


Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!


Have a great weekend!


Did you know it’s possible to be allergic to toothpaste? A toothpaste allergy may manifest as sores inside the cheeks, redness around the mouth, or general allergy symptoms. The most likely cause is the flavoring of your toothpaste. See your doctor or dentist for a diagnosis and suggestion of a different toothpaste.
