September 18, 2017Sobering Statistics – why annual oral cancer exams matter

  More than 25% of oral cancer victims are under age 40 and have none of the known lifestyle risk factors like tobacco and alcohol use or diabetes. Scientists have recently learned that people can develop oral cancer after contracting the human papilloma virus (HPV). Most types of HPV are harmless- for example, skin warts which are very common. But some types, like those transmitted sexually, have been linked to oral cancer. If oral cancer is caught early, the 5-year survival rate can be as high as 90%. If not, the rate drops significantly. Be proactive by pointing out to us any abnormal mouth condition you have seen or felt, even ones that seem trivial like a small canker or cold sore that hasn’t healed after about two weeks. In its earliest most-treatable stages, oral cancer usually causes no pain or discomfort. That’s why it’s really important for you to… Call our office today for a checkup!

August 16, 2017Protect teeth from decay- Affordable effective sealants

Did you know that by age 19, nearly 70% of kids have already had at least one cavity? Studies show that the majority of them occur in the pits and grooves of newly erupted molars. These cavities can easily be prevented with dental sealants – a fast, painless affordable solution that lasts up to 10 years. Sealants are painted onto the chewing surfaces of teeth to block food, acid, and bacteria from getting into deep crevices. They should be applied soon after the teeth have erupted – before cavities develop. Shiny new molar? Call and we’ll seal it up!

June 22, 2017Combat Acid Wear- To reduce teeth erosion

Many everyday foods and beverages are to blame, including perceived healthy ones like your morning juice and after-workout sports drink. So what can you do?.. Avoid sugary or acidic beverages or use a straw to reduce contact with teeth. Finish meals with acid-neutralizing mile or cheese. After consuming anything acidic, wait an hour before brushing your teeth. Our team can alert you to any signs of erosion to make sure it’s repaired quickly and easily. Contact us right away if you have a concern.

June 8, 2017Denture Care

Contrary to popular belief, losing your teeth is not a natural part of aging. Disease and trauma are the main causes of tooth loss, and while trauma may be beyond your control, you can prevent disease of the teeth and gums with proper cleaning habits that will help your natural teeth last a lifetime. But sometimes, things don’t go as planned… if you do find yourself with dentures, good oral hygiene is still very important. Plaque builds up on dentures just like natural teeth and can damage surrounding gum tissue and cause bad breath. Brush your dentures and your gums as often as you would your natural teeth and absolutely keep your regular professional cleaning appointments. Ask us about overnight cleaning while we monitor the health of your remaining natural teeth, gums , tongue, cheeks and lips.
