Healthy Food Choices Lead To A Healthy Mouth

At Noble Oaks Dentistry, we love providing tips to our patients to help them achieve optimal oral health. One area that some patients can improve upon is their eating habits. We suggest maintaining a healthy diet and avoiding foods high in sugar and starch. With the middle of summer upon us, we know that there are many opportunities where less nutritious food choices will be tempting. It is important to remember that anything in moderation is great, but overindulgence can lead to problems with your oral health.

Getting Back To Routine

When was the last time you visited our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months since your last visit, you are due for a cleaning. With the start of the new year just behind us, now is the perfect time to schedule a visit for you and your loved ones. Even if you take excellent care of your teeth each day by thoroughly brushing and flossing, we still need to check them regularly.

Are Your Lifestyle Choices Affecting Your Oral Health?

At Noble Oaks Dentistry, we want you to have optimal oral health. One of the best ways to do this is to make wise choices in your everyday life that do not negatively affect your oral health. Unfortunately, some patients make poor lifestyle choices, and it can negatively impact your oral health. While these habits might not be affecting your oral health now, they will most certainly lead to problems in the future.

Is Your Breath Getting You Down?

Do you find yourself stepping away when you speak closely with someone because of the smell of your breath? Or do you find yourself constantly reaching for mint gum because you know you have bad breath? Bad breath is something we all experience from time to time, especially after a large cup of coffee or a meal full of garlic and onions. For most of us, once we thoroughly brush and floss our teeth, our breath is back to being fresh. The problem arises when you have unexplained, recurring bad breath. Frequent bad breath is a sign there is a problem in your mouth.
