[05/23/17]   Mankind has been struggling to combat the effects of tooth decay for more than 7000 years. Early causes and treatments varied widely but according to a Sumerian text dating from 5000 BC, cavities were the direct result of tiny tooth worms.

[05/18/17]   Bad breath can be caused by the foods you are eating, vitamin deficiencies, by smoking, taking certain medications, and dry mouth. Be sure to brush your teeth at least twice every day and floss at least once daily to remove bacteria, which causes bad breath.

[05/16/17]   It's common knowledge that eating a lot of candy is bad for your teeth, but would you believe that eating dark chocolate may actually decrease your incidence of tooth decay? CBH, a compound found in cocoa, helps harden tooth enamel and fight plaque-causing bacteria.

[05/11/17]   Do you ever worry about the safety of dental x-rays taken during your appointments? Since the radiation present is a very small dose, we’re able to get an accurate picture of what’s going on in your mouth without putting your health at risk.

[05/09/17]   Even if you haven't been to the dentist in quite a while, we can assess the issues that must be dealt with and get your teeth in shape. If pain is your concern, we can promise you'll be surprised by the many different methods of pain management.

[05/04/17]   Gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the teeth. Make an appointment to see your dentist if your gums are painful, swollen or if they bleed when you brush your teeth. They will check the health of your gums and may take x-rays to check the condition of your jaw bone.

[05/02/17]   The only time you should keep your toothbrush covered with a cap or container is when you are traveling. Otherwise, store them upright and let them air dry after each use. When you store them in containers or cap them, bacteria can grow on them.

[04/27/17]   Do you ever worry that you’ll end up in dentures like your grandparents? Although there’s no way to predict your oral health decades from now, a good oral hygiene regimen that involves daily flossing and regular dental check-ups could help you keep your teeth well into your golden years.

[04/25/17]   Gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, is actually preventable and reversible with regular dental care and proper oral hygiene. However, if left untreated, it can evolve into serious periodontal disease, requiring extensive oral surgery.

[04/20/17]   Ancient peoples believed that tooth decay was caused by worms. The first mention of these worms was a Sumerian text that is from 5000 BC. This belief transcended many cultures including ancient India, Egypt, Japan, and China.
