Valentine’s Day Made Perfect

Feb 11, 13 Valentine’s Day Made Perfect

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Every local drugstore to big named department stores are carrying everything from heart shaped boxes filled with various different chocolates to jumbo sized teddy bears holding “I Love You” and “Be Mine” signs. Each member of a couple prepares differently. Women usually make sure they have the right outfit for where their special someone is taking them and what gift to buy and if it will be as amazing and special as you want it to be. The men are usually stressing about where to take their date, what chocolate to get, what gift is big and wonderful enough but not too over the top, and if the plan is everything his date is hoping for. Since everyone involved in the planning of an intricate Valentine’s Day date is always feeling like there is something forgotten, everyone here at RankMyDentist.com has come up with a few things you should remember to take care of in the weeks leading up to this special day.

First off, go see your local dentist! You might think that this is completely irrelevant, but your dentist can make sure that two important and key aspects go off without a hitch when it comes to your date. These two things are your smile and your breath. You do not want to have yellow, discolored, and stained teeth the night you take your special date out on such an important night. A routine cleaning and your dentist office can take that smile of yours to the next level and give you a wonderful confidence boost. The second thing, your breath, you most likely did not think of that one. But it could be that bacteria and other particles have lodged themselves in between your teeth and have started to release an odor. We all know that you are hoping for a spectacular kiss to end the night with, and you definitely do not want your date walking away thinking about how bad your breath was.

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!

Porcelain Veneers vs Composite Veneers

Dec 03, 12 Porcelain Veneers vs Composite Veneers

Most studies show that the first thing people notice when they meet someone new is how a person smiles. Artists, poets, authors and screenplay writers have all based many stories around the way someone smiles. Some have said that a person’s smile can tell you a lot about the individual. With all the emphasis put on a person’s smile, one cannot blame individuals who are self-conscious about their smile and teeth. Most people want that beautiful, pearly white smile that can stop traffic and light up a room, and many people feel that they do not have it for several reasons. There is a solution for these patients. Veneers are an easy fix for damaged teeth or to cover teeth that are not aesthetically pleasing. For many dental patients the installation of veneers is a simple, quick and uncomplicated option to fix and change the appearance of their smile when they are unhappy.

The two main types of veneers which dentists use today are porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Both of these options have their pros and cons and all dental patients thinking of having veneers installed should weigh them when considering which choice might be better for them. It is important to make sure that your dentist, or a different local dentist, is capable and has all of the qualifications and equipment necessary to install the veneers in the right way. It is important to speak to the dentist who will perform the procedure so that you feel comfortable and know that your smile will become improved after the veneers are installed.

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
