The Truth About Popular Dental Care Concerns

Healthy Teeth

When you were growing up, it may have seemed as if you were always being warned that something was bad for your teeth. The foods you loved and your favorite drinks were routinely derided as having the ability to cause cavities and decay. However, by following sound dental care practices, you might be surprised to learn that things are not nearly as dire as they seem. By learning about the best dental care products and gaining an understanding of how to clean your teeth after eating questionable food items, it is possible to stay on the right side of your family dentistry expert after all.

You may have been warned about the safety of over-the-counter whitening products intended to provide significant changes in color. The fact is that whitening strips and similar products really do not harm the teeth or gums, and can help brighten teeth. However, tray systems in which peroxide solutions are held against the teeth can actually harm tooth enamel if not used correctly. In-office whitening performed by an affordable dentist in a reputable family dentistry clinic is the safest way to get noticeable results.

Another subject of some confusion is proper brushing techniques. However, by simply brushing gently and choosing toothbrushes and toothpastes bearing the American Dental Association seal of approval, it is hard to make a real misstep. Conventional brushes need to be replaced every three months. Easy-glide dental floss is a perfect choice for getting real results. Pricey water pick tools may actually do more harm than good, as they can lodge bacteria in the gums. If in doubt about what to choose, a family dentistry professional can make useful product recommendations.

Many drugs can have a detrimental effect on oral health. Methamphetamine is among the most harmful, as it contains acid and dries the mouth, which fosters plaque development. Medications such as tetracycline and other antibiotics can discolor permanent teeth if taken by children, a fact of great concern to many parents. Nicotine is known to stain the teeth, and should be avoided at all costs.

Nearly everyone received a lecture at one time or another about the perils of having too much sugar. However, family dentistry professionals are quick to point out that the sugar itself is not the culprit—it is the length of time it is allowed to stay on the teeth and convert to bacteria. By brushing often and drinking lots of water, soda and candy can remain occasional additions to any diet.
