Foods With Benefits To Your Oral Health

There is the popular saying, “You are what you eat,” which means the foods you consume can have an effect on your body and overall health. The same is true for your oral health. We frequently explain the importance of limiting sugary foods in your diet because of the harmful effects they can have on your teeth and gums. However, do you know which foods are beneficial to your oral health? We are going to share some recommendations that can help your teeth and gums:

It’s Spring! Time For A Dental Check-Up!

We are so happy that it is finally spring. Spring is a popular time for “spring cleaning,” which is the process of thoroughly cleaning your home to remove the lingering effects of the winter. We encourage our patients to do the same with their oral health. If it has been some time since your last visit, spring is the perfect time to schedule an oral hygiene examination and cleaning. Read on to learn more.

Important Information About Fillings

With spring arriving in a few short days, there is no better time to schedule an oral hygiene examination and cleaning. During these visits, we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also check for problems in your mouth, such as dental decay. If we detect decay, also known as a cavity, we will recommend that you schedule an appointment for a filling. The process of filling a tooth includes removing the harmful decay and replacing it with a composite material that blends in with the remaining tooth enamel. Receiving treatment as soon as we recommend it is extremely important. Cavities cannot heal on their own and will continue to expand, potentially leading to the need for a more involved treatment.

Why Are My Gums Bleeding?

At Noble Oaks Dentistry, we are passionate about helping our patients have optimal oral health. This is why we are passionate about routine oral hygiene visits and encourage our patients to schedule any necessary treatments in a timely manner. Between visits to our office, it is important to be mindful of your oral health and regularly check for anything that may seem like it has changed with your teeth and gums. One thing you can check for is bleeding gums. If you notice red or pink in the water after brushing, there is a good chance you have bleeding gums. While this does not always indicate a problem, it is a good idea to be mindful of what may be occurring with your oral health. Bleeding gums can occur for one of the following reasons:

Choose A Candy Alternative This Halloween

Are you and your loved ones excited that Halloween will be here in a few short weeks? If you are a Halloween lover, do you enjoy the spooky movies and costumes, or are you all about the sweet treats? We know that many people will pick the sweet treats, as Americans purchase more than $2 billion worth of candy each Halloween season. We often share the importance of limiting sugar, so we want to share some candy alternatives you can try with your family this year.

Don’t Forget To Schedule Your End-Of-Year Dental Appointment!

The weather over the past few months has been brutally hot. We don’t know how you feel, but we are thrilled that fall has officially arrived, and cooler weather is coming our way. With the arrival of fall, we encourage our patients to schedule any appointments that may be needed for themselves or their family members. We know that you may be busy with activities and Halloween festivities, but your oral health is important. Now is the perfect time to schedule your visit to make sure you see us before the end of the year. Read on to learn more.
