Tips for Relieving Toothaches

Feb 05, 13 Tips for Relieving Toothaches

Toothaches are painful and often times mind numbing. The pain can be so bad that you cannot focus on anything else; whether it is work, school, friends or family. Most, if not all, people experience toothaches in varying degrees, but thanks to modern dental care and technology we experience less often than our ancestors did. Now, even though we experience these pains less often than our ancestors did, it does not mean that they are any less intense and painful. To help deal with the pain until you can get to your dentist try one of these easy solutions to help you get by.

  1. Try a garlic and salt mixture. One clove of garlic and a pinch of salt mixed together will create a paste. Rub the paste on the hurting tooth. The antibacterial compound allicin found in garlic can help fight off the bacteria that causes toothaches.
  2. Chew a clove of garlic every morning.
  3. Temporary relief can also be achieved by rubbing a numbing or desensitizing cream against the aching tooth.
  4. Taking aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Dental Tips for Your New Year’s Resolution

Dec 26, 12 Dental Tips for Your New Year’s Resolution

The New Year comes with a lot of excitement. All over the world people are throwing parties and celebrating the start of a year they hope will be filled with happiness, laughter and smiles as they put all the bad of the year that passed behind them. Almost every major city in the world has a firework display at the stroke of midnight, and who could forget the famous New York City ball drop?!?! For some it is a magical night that they wait for every year, and on this day each person is supposed to make a promise that they intend to keep. This promise, or resolution, usually entails reaching a certain goal or changing something in one’s lifestyle so that it may move in the right direction. As you hope to smile a lot during the coming New Year, it would be smart to make a resolution that will keep that smile shining and spectacular as you continue on with life. Keeping your smile healthier this year would not be a great hassle as you might have thought. For this reason we have listed a few easy ways in which you can improve your lifestyle and your smile.

One, always remember to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. If you do not have a proper and balanced diet it may have an effect on your whole immune system. If you do not have the proper vitamins and nutrition your body becomes prey to many common germs and bacteria, including the oral ones! Antioxidants found in many fruits and vegetables keep your gums and teeth healthy, and help protect your gums from inflammation. Also, try to eat fruits and vegetables like carrots, celery and apples. These help keep plaque from building up in your mouth therefore keeping your breath fresh. An apple a day might keep the doctor away, but it will also keep you from visiting your local dentist often!

Breathe The Right Way!

Sep 28, 12 Breathe The Right Way!

Take a step back and think, where do you breathe in and out from? Most of you will probably say your nose and think that this question is completely silly and weird, but some of you would say that you breathe from your mouth and wonder why we are asking you to pay attention to this issue. “Mouth breathing” is an actual ailment and condition that can lead to various sorts of problems. So, if you answered that you breathe from your mouth, or someone you know breathes from their mouth, it is time to stop! Breathing from your mouth is just fine when one is exercising, but when it is done excessively due to allergies, sinus or nasal congestion it may result in many problems. The reason for this is because of the air being much cooler and less filtered than when it is breathed in through the nose.

Problems associated with “mouth breathing:”

  1. Oral cavity, or the mouth, dries out
  2. Long Face Syndrome – when there are abnormalities in the shape of the face and jaw, gummy smiles, gingivitis and crooked teeth
  3. Social stigma associated with being less attractive, less intelligent, and inept
  4. Misdiagnoses of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or hyperactivity
  5. Poor sleeping habits that may lead to bad academic performance, development and growth
  6. Lower levels of oxygen in the blood which can increase the risk of one’s chance in developing hypertension, heart disease and sleep apnea

Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

Jul 23, 12 Keep Your Toothbrush Clean

There are certain habits or activities that most people should be accustomed to doing on a daily basis, one of which is brushing your teeth. It is important to brush your teeth at least twice a day and to do so properly you want to make sure your toothbrush is clean before you put it in your mouth. The CDC, Center for Disease Control, has gone on record saying that “even after being visibly clean, toothbrushes can remain contaminated with potentially pathogenic organisms.” Since you use your toothbrush often it is important to know how to keep it clean.

Here are a few ways to help you keep your toothbrush as germ-free as possible:

  1. Keeping your toothbrush in a cabinet or using a toothbrush protector actually increases bacteria.
  2. Keeping multiple brushes in one cup is bad – brushes rub against each other and spread bacteria.
  3. Wash your hands first! This may seem like common sense, but many people first reach for their toothbrush.
  4. Wash your toothbrush before and after every use. This means holding it under running water and rubbing your thumb over it with force.
  5. Occasionally place your toothbrush in the dishwasher for a deep clean. Use ordinary dishwasher soap.
  6. Replace every three to four months.
  7. Always use toothpaste!

Healthy Eating for Healthy Teeth

Jul 13, 12 Healthy Eating for Healthy Teeth

The diets we keep today are so different from our ancient ancestors that dental issues such as cavities, overbites, crooked teeth and overcrowding are practically inevitable. Out ancient ancestors used to chew on a lot more meat, and as our food has become softer we do not chew as much. Over the centuries our jaws have also gotten smaller and therefore they cannot accommodate all of our teeth properly. Many foods are no longer 100% fresh today adding to the dental problems already in existence. These foods are pre-packages, soft and full of sugar – not the best combination for keeping your teeth healthy. The right diet is important for your health, including your dental health. Eating the right foods is important, and how often you eat them is an important factor as well.

Foods that You Should be Eating:

  1. Cheese
  2. Chicken
  3. Meat
  4. Nuts
  5. Milk
